Expect Love

When things
do not go
as you expected –
is it not then
that you realize
you may have
an expectation,
a hard and fast
rule,
that you would
prefer not to
be broken,
but sometimes
do things not
go as you
have planned?

Does not the
greatest disappointment
come in when
there is another,
that you may
think you are
“letting down” –
is disappointment
not sometimes felt,
when another’s
expectation
becomes the
expectation
that you think
you have not
fulfilled?

You may not
always know
the reason why
there are bumps
in the road –
but does not
change
make you look
at what is
expected,
might it not be
the right time
to do what
you had planned –
having faith
that you
are experiencing
what you need –
you see that
there are situations
that are not
in your control.

As you are flexible,
does it not allow
you to bend
with things
that change,
does it also
not allow
others to
change as well,
might you be
part of an
opportunity
that you may
not understand –
does not change
help you to
see another way
to respond?

Take a look
at expectation,
in what you
hold fast to
what is “you” –
as You Are Love,
is that not
all you need
to Be?

Be gentle with You.
You are only
responsible to Be
the Love That You Are.

Be That Love.
You Are Loved.
Love Is All
and You Are That.

Might the only
expectation you have –
is that You Are
so very, very Loved.

Helping Love

7/07/17

Offer help,
lend a hand,
there is Love
in the giving
of yourself
to another –
to be there,
to be helpful.

Are there not times
when extending help
may also come
with expectation
of an outcome –
when a perceived
need is seen –
do you not wish
to jump in,
to help out,
to rectify a situation
that you think
needs to be
solved?

Is there not
a balance
to being helpful –
yes, you are there
when another asks,
but are there
not times
when you think
you know what
is “better?”

Is not another’s path
their own to
walk and learn?

Yes, there is learning
in relationship,
in how you
interact –
might you check in
on what your
intentions are,
when offering
to help –
can you offer
an open heart
letting Love
lead the way –
can you help
for helping’s sake,
without expectation
of what the outcome
“should” be –
can you Be There
for another,
can you show up
with Love?

As you share Love,
lending a helpful hand –
can you let go
of how it is
received?

Is not help
an extension
of the Love
That You Are –
and as Love is
limitless
in its reach –
can you Be Love
and let help
find where
it needs
to go?

Be loving.
Be helpful.
But mostly Be
the Face Of Love
for another
to see.

Be You.
Be There.
Be Love.

Take Care

Take care.
Be gentle.

What is it
that you need
to feel good,
to feel loved –
for is there
not caring
when Love
is spread
as a healing balm –
yes, you provide
care,
you give Love,
but can you
take care
and be gentle
to receive Love
within You?

Do you not
look to find
the space
that feels good,
where Peace
and calm
give you
the Strength
you need
to carry on –
when you
feel rooted to
the ground,
able to sway
with the winds,
to bend
not break –
as you are
grounded in
the Love
That You Are –
is this not
the caring place
as you take care
of You?

Take care.
Be gentle.

Begin with you
to take care,
to let the
healing balm
of Love
build up in
your heart,
spilling over
to each fiber
of your Be-ing,
each cell
that calls out
for Love –
can you take care
and reassure
All of You
that Love Is Here –
it always Is,
you can never
Be anything
but Love?

Take care.
Be gentle –
let the loving
Arms of Love
embrace
any hurting
aspect of You.

Let caring,
gentle,
Love
cradle you
in the Love
That You Are.

You Are
So Very
Loved.

Love Is Here

Young People Walking in Meadow

Love is here.

Do you need 
to make an
appointment,
showing up at
a certain time,
is this the
right way,
is this
the right time –
do not worry,
Love Is Here.

You need not
do tricks
to receive it,
you do not
have to stand
in line,
you do not
have to be
pre-qualified –
You Are perfect now
and Love Is Here.

Is it not
always available,
when you look
is it not
already there –
are you not
the one
who sometimes
questions
if it is
coming –
but is not
Love Always
Here?

You can see
it in a
crowd of people,
you can feel it
when you are
alone –
you may think
that it comes
from the outside,
but is that
not a reflection
of your shining Light –
do you not
surprise yourself
when you Know –
Love Is Here?

Can you go
to the space
that feels good –
that brings comfort
and Peace to
the front –
can you expand
upon that
and lean into
the place where
Love Is Here?

You never can
lose it,
You Are It
and
It Is You –
love always
is patient,
can you be
patient with
you?
You need do
nothing special –
You Are special
as You Are –
as Love Is Here,
Love is What You Are,
you cannot hide –
can you open you
and see that
Love is Here?

Here.
There.
Everywhere.
Wherever You Are –
Love Is Here.

And Then . . .

And then. . .
Be Love.

As you move
in linear fashion
through the
facets of
your life –
there is an
“if this”,
“then that”
motion
as the clock
keeps moving forward –
if I do this,
then what will
happen –
and what will
happen next?
And then. . .
Be Love.

There are scenarios
that you work
through,
many experiences
that occur –
some are for learning,
some are for finding
Joy again
within your heart –
when an experience
is over,
do you not
wonder what is
next?
And then. . .
Be Love.

You may wish
to turn a page
in the story
of your life –
you are the
author,
the creator,
of what you
wish to read –
whatever comes
in the next
chapter,
are you not
still the One
who reads the words –
no matter
what the ending,
do you not contemplate
its meaning?
And then. . .
Be Love.

Life moves by
very quickly,
you may feel
it is hard
to keep up –
but is that
not if you
think you need
to change,
or do,
or become –
when you wonder
what is next,
what should you
do or see
or be?
And then. . .
after all
is said
and done,
Be Love.

Be You.
Be Free.
Be Amazing.
Be Magnificent.

Be Who You
Always Are
and Who You
cannot help
but Be –
Be Love.

Where Is Love?

Where is Love?

Can you ask
this question
as you go
throughout your day –
might you find
surprising answers
to Where Is Love?

Do you not
have blinders on
when you see
through human eyes,
passing through
your ego filter,
that likes to label,
to categorize –
do you forget
to ask the
question,
when you think
you already know –
Where Is Love?

Is there not Love
in every situation,
with every interaction
you may have –
you may think,
“oh no – there cannot
be love in one
who looks or acts
like that!”

But can you still
ask the question
that is an answer
to your angst –
Where Is Love?

Is there not Love
when you least
expect it –
a kind word,
a helping hand
from a stranger
you have not met –
do you not sense Love
when someone
reaches out
to you?
Might they be
asking themselves –
Where Is Love?

And as you
look for Love
in others,
in interactions
that you have,
if you can
step out of
defensive positions
you take –
might you step into
the Love That Is –
to then see Love
all around you,
can you not add Love
by Be-ing Love –
are You not
the answer
to Where Is Love?

Love needs
no defense,
it is not earned,
it simply Is –
Love does not hide,
it is always here –
it is You,
it is All That Is.

Where Is Love?

It is Everywhere.
There You Are.
There I Am.
There Is Love.

Shower With Love

20170617 XPicture

6/17/17

Does ego not
feel like a
petulant child –
arms crossed,
pouting,
wanting to
get its way?

Yes, as your
awareness grows
of the spirit
that is you –
do you not
see your humanness
with open eyes,
becoming more aware
when your ego
stomps in –
ready to take
control?

In this world,
ego is as
essential as
the spirit
in you –
in this world
of duality,
you have within you
your own dual nature
to give you choices,
to act and react,
so you may find
the balance,
to know each side –
do you not gain
understanding
when one side tips
you too far,
throwing you
off your mark?

Yes, ego will not
want you to
forget it –
it will get
your attention
when it is ignored,
might what ego wants
is like any
small child –
does it not
want attention,
does it not
wish to be
loved?

Do you not sense
the small child
within you,
that kicks and screams
when it does not
get its way,
might you let
ego know,
you are in this together –
hug the child
within you,
no one gets
left behind –
can you shower
all aspects
of you
with Love –
the exasperated,
the peaceful,
the angry,
the joyful,
the scared,
the loving
parts of You –
if you can
get along
with all of you –
is there not
a chance
that all
can get along, too?

Is not hurt
and pain
not a cry
for Love –
what comes up
for Love,
no matter what,
does your ego,
your child,
not want
only Love –
and lucky for ego,
is that not
What You Are?

Does not ego
help you
to Love
All That Is?
Is this not
the perfect
chance to Love?

Show it.
Shower it.
Make no
doubt about it.
Let the child
in you,
know the
Love That You Are.

Always,
always,
Love.

A Love Song

20170616 XPicture

6/16/17

What makes
your heart
play a 
love song
for you?

What lifts
your heart,
what makes
it sing
when the world
with all
of the shouting
seems so
deafening
at times –
can you
listen to
the Love Song
in your heart?

Does it not
sing out
when there
are others
that hold
the space
for Love –
can you
assemble
a loving chorus
to play a
Love Song
for all?

You may think
a Song of Love
may not resonate
with some
who cannot hear –
but listening ears
are not where
a Song of Love
is understood –
do you not
listen to
a Love Song
in your heart?

What moves
someone,
what lifts
the heart –
is there not
a loving song
that is playing
in all hearts –
might it be
getting blocked
by so much
noise?

It is not
how loud
that you
can sing
to feel
the song
that plays
for you –
does a Song of Love
not fill
your heart
when you
vibrate with
each loving note –
when you become
your Song of Love,
are you not
living and singing
from your heart?

How can
your heart
not sing
a Love Song
for You?

There is a song
in everyone
that the heart
wishes to sing –
it is there
beneath
the noise,
can you tune
your ear
to hear –
the Song of Love
that plays
in every heart,
within every soul?

And as the
loving vibration builds
with Love Songs
of the heart,
will not this
Chorus of Love
lift hearts
that sing along –
as you let
your heart
play a Love Song
for You?

Your song
Is Love,
let it play
for You.

Feel it.
Sing it.
You Are
a Song of Love.

Serving Love

Serving Love.

And what does 
this mean –
to serve Love?

What might
a dinner invitation
say to its
invitees –
“please come,
we are serving Love!”
Would not some
decline,
thinking that
they might
feel uncomfortable
accepting such
a feast of Love?

Might others
line up
to receive
an offering
of Love
that may
be scarce
and hard
to find –
might they
come to see
what does
it look like
when one
is serving Love?

Is not serving Love –
finding Love
in all you see,
in all you do –
yes, there are
twists and turns
as you experience life –
it can be
a challenge
at times
to find
Love when
you are looking out –
but are we
not talking
about You
As Love –
does not serving Love
begin with You?

Can you be
a model
for you to follow –
is not serving Love
serving the
greater good –
does it not
make sense
to expand
the Love
in You,
so you may
serve Love?

So put yourself
first in line-
as you serve Love,
do you not
receive Love, too?
You give yourself
the greatest gift
when you serve
the Love
That Is You.

Serving Love
allows for
Love
to flow
where Love
needs to Be –
can you Be
the Love
That You Are –
serving the
greater good –
Serving Love.

Meeting You

20170613 XPicture

6/13/17

Can you meet you
where you are?

Are there not many
aspects of you –
from memories past,
from where you started
this day,
do you not have
a perception of you
in the future
near or far?

Yes, with growth,
with change,
with the
ever-evolving nature
of your be-ing –
it is tempting,
you are drawn,
to contrast
and compare,
to see what
has changed –
to speculate
what happens next –
where do you
wish to go?

But can you
meet you
where you are?

If you live
slightly in the past,
do you not then
predict
what may happen next,
based on where
you have been
and what you
have done before?

Yes, there is learning
that you glean
as you evolve –
but are you not
where you are
right now?

And as you project
into the future,
do you not place
footprints
in the sand,
to follow –
instead of
blazing your
own new trail?

You may find
comfort
in what has been,
to help you to see
what might become –
but can you have
Faith and Trust
that All Is Well,
as you meet you –
where you are?

Where You Are
is the perfect place –
it is the only place
You Are
in this space and time –
there is much less
noise
and greater Peace,
when you meet You
Where You Are.

Take a look.
Feel the Love.
It is not hard
to find
Where You Are –
when you open
your heart
to the Love
That You Are.

Give yourself
a hug
where you are
right now.
There You Are!

Love You –
Where You Are.
