A Common Cause

20170912 XPicture

Food,
water,
shelter.

When stripped down
to the basic needs,
is this not when
you feel the same
in this world of
duality,
where separation
and differences reign –
when a catastrophic event,
man-made or nature’s way,
makes you think
“that could be me”,
does that not create
a common cause,
when compassion
becomes the norm,
when help and aid
come in with
food,
water,
shelter?

And when you move beyond
the story,
of the human side
of you,
is this not when
you feel the same,
in this world
of duality,
when you realize
that you share
the Common Cause
of Love?

Is it not Love
that fuels compassion,
that gives you the drive
to want to help –
is it not the feeling
of being there
for someone else –
what lights the spark
in your heart,
what makes your soul
leap with Joy –
you may not be aware
of what you feel,
but is it not Love
that nudges you
to take the step,
the right thing to do –
in times of need,
does it not feel good
to share a Common Cause
of Love?

Food,
water,
shelter.
Yes, you have learned
these basic needs
are the building blocks
of being human,
but as You Are Spirit,
here and now,
do you not exist
because of Love –
is not Love
the fuel you need,
as basic as
the air you breathe –
and when that is gone,
do you not live on
with the Common Cause
of Love?

If at any time
you could see,
that you all share
a common cause –
it is not only to have
what you need
to live to see another day,
but to feel
the spark,
the flame,
the Light,
that ignites in You,
Who You Are
right now –
do you not wish
to be in the presence of –
the Common Cause
of Love?

Share.
Give.
Unite
in Love.

Be-cause.
Be You.
Be Love.

Be Together

Friends Playing on the Beach

Together.

Do you not band
together,
to lend a helping
hand,
are there not times
when you realize,
that there is help
when you need support –
when in times
of need,
is it not easier
to go through it
together?

Does it not take
greater strength
to ask for help,
to reach out –
in this life of
separation,
why do you feel
you need to
“go it alone”,
do all not grow
when one is lifted,
when you connect,
when you share –
is not the greatest Strength
experienced when you
work and play together?

Yes, it often takes
a common cause
or times when you
step outside
your “usual” lives,
can you step beyond
your comfort zones,
to let someone know
they are not alone –
can the common cause
be one of Love,
as you reach out your hand
or look with your heart –
can you see You,
in who stands
next to you?
Together.

Together you share
so much more
than what you think
are differences –
you may not agree
on everything,
but can you see
Love in humanity –
do not wait for
an invitation
or a catastrophic event,
can you Be Love now,
together?

When you get beyond
the “yours” and “mine”,
helping each other
to see the Light,
is there not comfort
when you share,
that the Love you seek
is everywhere –
does Love not grow,
is there not a bright
Light,
when you experience
the Love That You Are
in this life –
together?

Be a shining Light.
Let it connect
You to All.
As All Are Love,
how can you not
Be
Love
Together.

Resilient.

Is not resilience
standing tall,
despite when you may
stumble or fall,
do you not find ways
to get back up,
to be flexible enough
to bend not break –
like the tree
when leaves or
branches fall,
does it not stay
grounded
standing tall?
Resilient.

Do you not weather
any storm
and find ways to
stay safe and warm,
even when turmoil
is high,
during times when
water or smoke
fill the sky –
with help,
with support,
do you not get through
anything Mother Nature
can throw at you?
Resilient.

Is it not in
the aftermath
that the good
comes out,
the helpers help –
after chaos’ fun
is through,
is it not the perfect time
for Gratitude,
to get back up
to let the healing begin,
to reconstruct,
to rejuvenate,
to rise from the ashes
once again.
Resilient.

Yes, you may prefer
for Peace to reign,
it can within the eye
of any storm –
but do you not
recognize your
Strength and Courage,
when life can batter
and throw you around –
do you not look within
You to see,
“I Am That and
All Is Well.”

And Who Are You?
You Are Love.
You Are Strength.
You Are Courage.
You Are Peace and
You Are Amazing.

Resilient.

A Question For Love

20170909 XPicture

9/09/17

Ask and ye shall receive.

Are there not
many ways
and a multitude
of times,
that a question
is formed
when you wonder,
ponder,
reflect,
and ask for guidance,
for help,
for direction –
when you think
you do not know
what to do next?

And is not that
place of friction,
when the asking
is not yet met
by the receiving,
or so you think,
at that moment
in time,
is there not
information,
intelligence,
even that you
already have received
the answer –
is not the question
a form of resistance
to what you already
know is True?

When asking to receive,
do you not have
an expectation
of the answer
you wish to hear –
do not your questions
already have a
specific intent
brewing in your mind?

Can you step back,
away from
a particular path,
a specific outcome,
can you form a question
that comes from
your heart –
a question of service,
of what would Love do,
or what would Love
look like today?

Yes, there are details,
steps you are taking
that help you walk
through this life –
but as you
could not imagine
where you are now
from where you began,
has not the journey
been an answer
to the mysteries
of life?

And as all questions
may not be revealed
in this lifetime,
or answered in a way
that you might expect,
can you be receptive
to receiving answers
to questions that you
have not yet asked?

You ask for reassurance,
to help you know
that you are on
the “right” track –
can you be patient,
having Faith in your journey,
when you ask with Love,
is not Love always there?

Might you open a window
to receive,
might your questions
welcome in,
the Mystery of Love.
Might you surrender
to enjoy the Journey,
to the wonder
and the Mystery
of You?

There is no question
that You Are Love.
Love is the answer
that you seek.
When you ask the question,
“What would Love do?” –
is not the answer
to simply Be?

Ask Love.
Receive Love.
Find You
by Be-ing Love.
The question,
the answer,
is Love.

Eternally Love

You Are Love.
Now.

There is no place
to go
so that you
may Be,
may find,
the Love
of Everlasting –
are you not
the definition
of Eternal Love
now,
as you are Spirit
being human,
You Are Love.
Now.

You may ask,
“Why do I not
remember,”
“Why is it so
hard to see?”
Is not being human
an interesting
experience, Indeed –
but you sense
that you are Spirit,
you can feel it
in your heart,
there are glimpses
in the stillness,
when you shift
your awareness there –
this is an experience
so you may find
that though you
look both
near and far,
You Are Spirit,
You Are Love,
You Are That.
Now.

When you miss
those who feel “lost”
and you yearn
to go back Home,
your human brain
makes it so hard
to feel complete
and not alone –
it is hard to comprehend
that you are already Whole,
that those you love
are part of you,
are with you still,
and as They Are Love –
are they not
Loving You,
Now?

There is a curtain,
that is drawn
so you may
act in this play –
for the lessons,
for the learning,
for the chance
to find a way –
to discover,
to develop,
to grow
and to evolve –
and to realize
with wide eyes
and open heart,
That You Are Love.
Now.

Connected.
Together.
Whole.
Complete.
Love Is
All That Is,
You Are That
and You Are Love.

Always have been.
Always will be.
Eternally Love.
Now.

Look For Love

20170907 XPicture

9/07/17

Look for Love.

Yes, it may be
hard to see
when you look
with eyes that
are not clear,
or when Love hides
behind your
own reflections
of what love is not –
but is not Love,
always there?

Look for Love
when you wish to
avert your eyes –
for how could Love
be somewhere
that you do not agree,
that you do not like,
but does not that love
that has labels and rules,
that is tied to
the story of you –
would that love
not crumble
in the Face of Love
that moves beyond
the boundaries
that try to separate you
from Who You Are?

Look for Love.

For once you
set your focus
back on Love,
not getting distracted
by what you
do not like –
can you Be
what you wish to see –
Love,
Peace,
and Harmony –
will you not Be
a Beacon of Light,
for another to see
as they look for Love?

There are many stories
that catch your eye,
that get your attention,
yes, your story, too –
might you look for Love
everywhere you look
and will you not find
Love looking back
at You?

You may see actions
that you do not like,
that look like
anger, fear, or hate,
but do not these appear
when separation
makes you feel,
that Love has gone,
has slipped away?

There Is Love
everywhere,
when you look with
the Eyes of Love.
You will find Love,
you will see Love,
for how can you Be
anything but Love?

Look for Love.
Love looks
for You.
See with the
Eyes of Love.

Be Love.
See Love.
There You Are!

An Intention of Love

20170906 XPicture

9/06/17

What do you wish
to create?

And yes, you are
continually creating,
manifesting
evolving,
even when you
are not aware
of this happening –
do you not
see past markers
in your life
and realize
ways that you
have changed?

Are you not
like a balloon,
that ever so slowly,
takes in air –
changing,
growing,
until there is
enough air
to lift it up,
so it may float
and move to
a different space?

And like the balloon,
from a different space,
do you not find ways
to draw in Strength,
to be filled up
with what inspires you,
to see what lifts you
and takes you to
another place,
as you create
and manifest
through experiences
that come your way?

Now visualize turning
up the heat
of a hot air balloon –
is this not like
using your intention,
to say “I Am ready,”
saying “Yes” to flying
even higher –
still using the air,
the currents
that support you,
but with intention,
do you not feel
the Power that lifts you,
so you may fly
in this beautiful space?

There is power,
there is ease,
there is a balance,
as you find
the perfect interaction
between intention
and surrender –
do these not work
together,
like a beautiful balloon
that appears to be
still,
but is ever-moving
in the sky?

Can you embrace
the stillness
as a constant
Be-ing of change –
as you rise,
as you fly
as a majestic
Be-ing of Love?

What do you
wish to create,
Be-ing Love?
