A Father’s Love

20170618 XPicture

6/18/17

There are many
faces to a father –
it is a complicated
role.

Might it be
the face of a lion,
watching over
his pride,
defending all
with the fierceness
of a warrior
bred to protect?

Might his role
include the antics
of a monkey,
who loves
to play and joke –
keeping everyone
laughing
when laughter
is what is
needed most?

Does his role
not include
being a teacher –
passing down
traditions learned,
he may be patient,
he may be hurried –
it is not
in the delivery,
is it not
in what he shares –
does not a
father show
who he is
with those
he loves?

You have expectations
of a father
that are as varied
as there are dads –
but at its very core,
does not a father’s love
shape who you are –
you may feel close,
you may wish
for more,
but does not
a father’s love
touch you deep
within your heart?

There are many
faces to a father –
it is a complicated
role –
but is there not
the Face of Love
when a father
sees his child –
when the child
sees the Love –
there is father,
there is dad.
There Is Love.

Shower With Love

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

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.

Always Connected

20170615 XPicture

6/15/17

You ask for help,
you wish for
a sign 
from above,
from within –
a reminder
of the connection
that you know
exists,
like a program
running in the
background
of your life.

And we wish
to remind you –
are you not
being guided
at all times –
are you not
always connected,
even if you
are not aware
of this help?

Yes, you can
keep your eyes
open to this
knowledge,
to this awareness –
but can help
not arrive
in subtle ways?

Might guidance come
in a thought,
a feeling that
feels right,
a person that you meet,
even turning away
from something else –
can put you in
the right direction
as you receive
answers to the
questions
that you seek?

You are bombarded
by information –
even by the thoughts
running through
your mind –
can you pause
for a moment,
to check in
with your heart –
what is your
feeling,
not your thought
that comes your way –
is this not
when you light up
the connections
in this web
that you are
always connected to?

Yes, you may
not see
or have
an awareness
of all things,
that you are
connected to
in this life
and beyond –
but you are
always,
eternally connected
to Love.

Yes, it is affirming
to remember,
to see a sign,
to feel
the nudge,
but Love
walks with you
wherever you
may go.

There is a hand
holding yours –
you never walk alone.

Always connected.
Always supported.
Always Loved.

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

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.

Answer of Love

20170612 XPicture

6/12/17

You may ask –
Why is there fear,
why pain,
why hurt?

Yes, you have
these experiences
in this world –
and are they all
not a way
to experience
and know
what is Strength,
what is Courage,
what is Joy,
what is Love?

Are there not times
when the absence
of Joy
lets you know
when Joy
rushes in –
you then say,
“I know Joy” –
is it not
the knowingness
that you wish
to experience
here on earth?

And is it not
when you look fear
in the eye –
that you experience
the Strength
and Courage
That You Are –
yes, you would prefer
not to know fear,
but does that
not give you
the opportunity
to see the Strength
that resides
within You?

And as the healing
Balm of Love
heals all pain,
all hurt,
do you not find
so many ways
to experience
Love?
And as you
look for healing –
do you not pass
the healing on,
is there not a
cycle,
a sharing
of healing Love?

Yes, this world
has its share
of fear,
of pain
and hurt –
but does it
not give you
the opportunity
to feel the Light
that shines in You –
to know the Love
That You Are –
does not the healing
Balm of Love
rush in,
when there is
something that is
asking to be healed?

There is no need
to experience
fear and pain
to Be
the Strength,
the Courage,
the Joy,
the Love
That You Are –
but yes,
there are times
when you ask
“Who am I?”

And in that question,
in the journey,
in the healing
that you seek –
does it not
always lead you
to Love,
lead you to You?

You Are the answer.
You Are the healing.
You Are Always Love.
