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.

With Loving Eyes

Are there not times
when you take stock,
take a look around –
it may be a garden,
or landscaping,
a single tree,
or bush that blooms,
that catches your eye –
do you not
enjoy seeing
what grows
around you?

Do you not marvel
at how big
things have grown –
have they not expanded,
they may be
growing out of
their space –
you may need
to trim,
or prune,
or relocate
to a better place
so that growth
can flourish
once again.

When you take time
to look around
at your surroundings
that you see everyday –
are there not
things that you
overlook,
until one day
you are ready to see?
There might be
repairs that need
tending to,
or things to put away,
a pile here,
a stack there,
that do not
draw your
attention until
they do.

Are there not times
when you take stock,
take a look around –
at what is inside,
it may be your
purpose,
your growth,
or adjustments
you would like to make –
are there not
things that
draw your attention,
that you have
not been able to see?

When you look
with fresh eyes,
with loving eyes
that wish to see,
might there be
an adjustment here,
some sprucing there –
but can you survey
the Whole of You,
the perfection of You –
as you look beyond
what is on the
surface
and dive deep
to the Truth of You –
are you not
a magnificent garden
growing full
and full of Love?

When you take stock,
take a look around –
can you close
the eyes that judge
and see with
all your heart,
with loving eyes,
that see the Whole –
can you not
marvel at
the beauty and
the growth of You?

Yes, stop at times
to survey
the beauty
and the growth –
with loving eyes,
can you see
the Love
That Is You?

Flourish in the garden
of the Love That You Are.
Growing.
Expanding.
Seeing with the
Eyes of Love.

What a marvel.
What perfection.
That Is You!

Loved

Each day
is the
perfect opportunity
for you to
feel that
you are loved.

Is it not
your conscious mind
that needs
reminding –
for does your
soul not
know already
that every minute,
every moment –
you are loved?

So when the day
is dawning,
can you not
open up your eyes,
to celebrate
another day,
another chance
to realize –
that no matter what
day it is –
one thing is sure
that never ceases,
is that you are
so very loved?

You may awaken
and think
“what is it
I have to do?”
do you not
often think
“what day is it?” –
and fill in
what that
day may bring?

But can you
take just
a moment –
when the
day is so
very new –
and know
as you are
so very loved –
have you not
fulfilled
what you
are here
“to do” –
is it not
enough
to Know
and Be –
loved through
and through –
yes, you are
so very loved.

No matter
if the day
starts out
rocky,
or if the day
goes so smooth –
there is
a constant
flow around you –
that is always
there for you.
Can you open up
your heart
and your mind
to believe it, too?

You Are So Very Loved.

What to do
with all
this Love?
Be That Which You Are.
Love.
Loved.
You.

Mother’s Love

20170514 XPicture

5/14/17

You have a day
to celebrate
the Love of “mom”¬†
and all that means –
how well you know
you cannot fit
all of the aspects
of Mother’s Love
into one day.

Does not the
relationship
of mother to child,
of child to mother,
stretch the limits
of what you think
Love is –
is it not often
your first experience
of unconditional Love?

And yes,
there are lessons
in this relationship,
as with all –
but is there not
a connecting bond
with who you call “mom” –
though life can test
the limits of Love
in this physical world,
is not this relationship
one that you learn
so much from?

And Mother’s Love
for a child
when as a baby
or when grown,
with you now
or waiting near,
together always
in your heart –
is there nothing
that can break
the connecting bond
that is always there –
even as life
bring changes to –
sometimes testing this
bond of Love
between mother and child?

Is not this
Bond of Love
at its core
unconditional Love –
even if you sometimes
do not believe it
with human eyes?

So yes, celebrate a day
that celebrates
a Mother’s Love,
a child’s love for
a mom –
in many roles,
in many ways –
but can you
contemplate a Love
that begins unconditionally –
and keep Love free
of any limits
or conditions
you place upon
yourselves?

Can you celebrate
a Mother’s Love
beyond a certain day,
a specific time –
have you not
all been touched
by a Mother’s Love?

Remember Love
that is born
so pure –
only Love.

That Is You.
That Is All.
That Is Love.

Trust Love

Trust Love.

A simple statement
in these two words,
but does it
not say all
you need –
could you not
use it as
a guiding Light?
Trust Love.

Is trust
not moving
beyond belief –
is it not a
knowing
that All Is Well –
can you believe
that Love
Is All
There Is?
Trust Love.

Can you let
yourself
feel Love Divine –
You Are worthy,
You Are Loved.
Might you
let Love
heal all wounds?
Trust Love.

You are amazing,
You are kind,
You are a
beautiful child
of God,
of Source,
of the Divine –
as You Are Love
at your very Be-ing,
can you feel that
You Are Love?
Trust Love.

Have you not had
experiences
with Pure Love –
be it with a child,
or a soulmate dear,
a pet who touches
your heart,
when you open
your heart and Love –
to eternity,
with no end –
do you not
get a glimpse
of Love
that knows
no boundaries
and is always there?
Trust Love.

Do you know,
can you believe –
You Are
an expression
of Love Divine –
open your heart
to the Love
That You Are –
Trust Love.

Believe.
Know.
Love.
Trust
Love.

Let Love Heal

Where does it hurt?

Is not pain
often used
as an indicator –
to lead,
to point,
to what is hurting,
to what wishes
to be healed
and sometimes –
there is a source
that can be found,
that can be fixed –
a splinter removed,
a scrape that needs
tending,
a broken bone
that given a chance
will heal
and often will
grow back
even stronger –
does not the body
do an amazing job
to try to heal
itself?

But as pain
is an indicator,
good at getting
your attention –
yes, there is pain
that does not
go away quickly
with a bandaid,
or medication,
it may not
be tied
to a physical symptom,
you may even know
the source of your pain,
but are there not
things that you
cannot change –
the reason
that you believe
you are in pain –
where does it hurt?

And if you
cannot go back
in time
to change,
to fix,
what you wish
to heal –
are you not
an amazing
regenerating body,
enveloped
with the Love
of All That Is
within your soul –
do you not
really need
to know –
where does it hurt?

Can you accept
the healing balm
of Love
that is always there –
might the healing
Force of Love
not only heal
but allow you
to grow even stronger –
do you not turn
to Love
to turn away
from the pain?
Can you transmute
the pain
so that it
can show you
more Love –
where does it hurt?

Are you not able
to recognize pain
in someone else –
does not the
understanding of pain
bring compassion,
bring more Love –
if pain is an
indicator,
getting your attention,
bringing up opportunities
to be healed –
to open and accept
the healing balm
of Love –
might you
embrace pain
and as you
love the pain, too –
do you not
open up to the
healing properties
of Love –
where does it hurt?

As hurt
and pain
cry out
for relief –
can you let
Love in
to soothe,
to heal,
to show
that You Are Loved?

Let Love heal,
let Love embrace
You,
the pain,
the hurt,
there is nothing
Love cannot do –
where there is hurt,
where there is pain,
There Is Love.

Serving Love

To be of service.

To serve,
to give,
to help,
to believe
in something
that is outside of you
and your daily needs –
does it not
feel good
to be of service
to others?

And are there not
a plethora of ways
to serve –
be it in
the military,
with community,
performing any
civic duty,
you may be paid
or volunteer –
any way that
you can help
to be of service
to someone,
something outside
of yourself?

Is there not
a sense,
even a need
to extend a hand,
to help someone,
to be of service,
to do “good”,
does it not
make you feel
good as well?

Is serving
not extending
a part of
yourself –
saying yes,
“I am here
to serve you?”

But is serving
not reciprocal –
is there not
satisfaction
that you feel –
when you help
someone does it
not help you, too?

Might you be
serving the Love
that flows through
each of you –
as you are
an extension
of the Love
of All That Is –
as you extend
service to another,
are you not
also serving Source?

Is not being
of service
an act of surrender
that serves
a greater good –
is there anything
greater than the
Love of the Divine?
Is this not
the Love
that also flows
through You?

So when providing
an act of service –
are you not
honoring the Love
That You Are –
yes, you extend yourself,
but do you
not receive
what you so
freely give?

As you serve Spirit,
the Love of All That Is –
does not surrender
to this Love
let you Be
the Love That You Are –
are not All served
even when
you serve
One?

To Be of service
is to Be Love.
Give.
Receive.
Serve Spirit.
Serve Love.
In all ways,
always,
Love.

Kindred Spirits

There are many ways
and many levels
to get to “know”
someone.

You might
know all of
the information
about what
they do,
who they are
related to,
what they like,
what have they done
in the past,
what are their
future dreams.

But are there
not other ways –
do you not
“know” something
about someone
you have have
just met,
or only came
in contact with
in a less
permanent way –
but do you not
get a sense
about someone
without knowing
the details
of what they “do”
in their day to day
life?

Does this not help
you to look at
what do you
identify with –
how closely
do you relate
what you do,
the details,
the information,
the story –
with Who You Are –
and is it not
difficult to put
into words
this concept of Be-ing?
Is that not why
you rush to fill in
the identifying factors
that you have gathered
so far?

And yes, you have
an identity,
as you live
in this physical world,
with identifying features
that you can use
to connect with others,
or use to put distance
between those
that you think
are different –
that you might not
have much
in common with?

But as you are
so much more
than what you think
makes up your story –
do you not
connect with others
heart to heart first –
not needing to know
what they “do”,
but sensing the Love
that emits from
their soul –
do you not know
this is a kindred spirit,
no matter what
story is told?

And even if a
heart is closed,
someone does not remember
Who They Are –
will their soul
not receive
the Love you send?
For once you embrace
that you are
not your story –
how can you not
send Love
to every Soul?

Are you not All
Kindred Spirits –
made from Love
a part of
All That Is –
yes, you have
connections that
teach you much,
there will be some
you are supposed
to meet –
but underneath
the identifying features,
there beats a heart
that somewhere deep
within its core,
There Is Love
and There Is Light.

Can you see it?
Can you feel it?
Might you look at You
to find it There?

You know Love.
You know Light.
You can find them
Everywhere.
Look with your heart
and seek to find
Love
in every
One.

One for All

20170502 XPicture

5/02/17

“All for one
and one for all.”

And does this phrase
not bring together
the concept
of one and all
working together
in harmony –
even as the words
one and all
are often put
at odds with
each other?

Does it not
depend where
the one begins?

If the “one”
is at the
individual level –
does that not
foster a system
that invites separation –
that each “one”
is different,
standing alone
by itself,
seeing other “ones”,
but not feeling
connected?

Is that not why
when feeling separated,
do many “ones”
not seek to find others
just like themselves –
which can often
bring more
separation,
more polarization
with the bigger
groups of “ones?”

Now think of
“one” as One –
One Love,
the Love of
All That Is –
God,
Source,
Divine –
and does not
One Love
encompass All –
is this not
a blanket that
is large enough
to cover All,
to comfort All,
as All vibrates
with this Love –
only with a
unique filter
that you put on
to experience All
in this human world?

Have you not had
many experiences
with what it feels like
to work together –
be it on a team,
at school,
at work,
in a community,
with family,
or a group of friends
working on a project –
a common goal
that fosters teamwork
to experience
the concept
of all for one
and one for all?

What if All
had a common goal
to reach for –
to shine more brightly,
to work together,
to Be,
to Know
Love?

And would this
Expression of Love
not look different
when expressed by All –
but would you not each
feel the Love,
marveling in
each unique
Expression of Joy
that comes with Love –
what if Love
were the common goal
that unites the
All of One –
would not the
expression then be:
One for All
and All for One?

Are not All
and One
the same
when Love Is
All There Is?

Express your uniqueness.
Be one that is
part of the all.
You are surrounded
by teammates –
might you express yourself
and be a part
of this Team of Love?

Be One for All.
Be All for One.
Be Love.
Believe Love.
Believe You
Are One Love.

All of You
Are Love.
All
One
Love.
