A Loving Choice

20170128-xpicture

1/28/17

A loving choice.
There are many decisions
to be made
here on earth
in your daily life.
Some are quick to make,
some require more thought,
but do not all
represent the duality you live in –
right or wrong,
this or that,
yes or no?

And yes,
you do think about
the consequences
of your decisions –
adding weight to
the thought process,
as you think about
the outcome
you are wanting
to control.

And is it not
the outcome
that you are counting on,
betting upon,
the outcome
that drives your reaction
to the choices
that you make?

And now do not
your choices
become the key
to your happiness –
adding even more weight
to the thought process –
and are there not times
when you feel
crushed by the
burden of the choice?

What if each choice
you make is
a loving choice?
A choice made
in love,
from love,
as you move your
awareness from
your head to
your heart –
does not a choice
made in love
allow you to breathe?

And can you not
expand this Love –
to make a loving response
to the loving choice –
no longer at the
mercy of a specific outcome –
triggering a reaction;
was that good or bad,
right or wrong,
“how should I feel?”

Yes, there are decisions
to be made
as you live
on this earth
in the duality
of your human form.
But as You Are
a Soul,
as You Are Love –
can you find
a way to make
a loving choice?

Choose with Love.
Respond with Love.
Make a loving choice to
Be the Love You Are.

Snow Angels

1/27/17

Snowflakes fall
on a winter’s night –
they may pile up
turning the landscape white.
Do not adults groan
and wonder about
roads, driveways and cold?

But children squeal,
scream in delight,
wanting to go outside
to roll and play
making angels in
the fluffy snow –
are they not in
the Moment of Joy?

A beloved dog
wants to go outside
with fur thick for cold –
she wants to play
in the cold white snow –
she runs around
in a joyful dance,
her favorite thing
is to roll and play
making angels in
the cold wet snow –
is she not in
the Moment of Joy?

And does it not
bring you joy –
to see the joy
that children and
your beloved pets
so fully emulate;
using everyday miracles
to express their Joy.

And do you see
You Are the miracle
that you wish to see
in angels in the snow?

The miracle of
Love Divine
flows through You.

So when Joy
is hard to sense –
let Gratitude in
to fill your heart.
Can you emulate the Joy
of the child or pet –
and make angels
wherever you are?

As you visualize
making angels
in the snow –
can you not
feel the Joy
and Love
That You Are?

Let the Angel of Love
remind you to
express each
Moment of Joy,
Gratitude,
Love.

The Miracle of Joy
is the Miracle of You.

Be the Miracle of Love.

Comfort Signs

20170126-xpicture

1/26/17

A storm brews.

Are there not
atmospheric pressures
building –
putting conditions
into place,
for warm air
to intersect with cold
causing temperatures
to plummet –
the wind increases
adding pressure
to the already
unstable atmosphere –
bringing moisture
to the air.

And when the build-up
reaches a tipping point
and clouds are ready
to burst –
does not the steady rain
bring water that is
needed on the earth –
the rhythmic sound
even brings comfort
when you listen
to the rain,
but did there not
have to be conditions
present for the
rain to fall?

And once the storm is over
is there not a
clearing calm?
As you emerge from
your place of shelter
and smell the cleansing air,
do you not marvel
when you see blue sky
as the covering
of clouds recede
allowing in a ray
of sunlight?

And is this not an opportunity –
with the sun reflecting on
the remnants of the moisture,
the storm that now is gone –
is this not when
you may see
a rainbow form above –
arching over the
once-explosive atmosphere –
saying,
now,
All Is Calm,
All Is Well.

Can you be the Beam of Light
that shines through the clouds?
Can you be the calm
before,
during,
and after a storm?
Can you be a sign of comfort
that can be seen
both far and wide?

Can you Be a Messenger of Love?
All Is Calm.
All Is Well.
All Is Love.

You Are.
All Are
Love.

Vessel of You

20170125-xpicture

1/25/17

You wish to travel,
to go somewhere.

And do you not
prepare your car –
the vehicle,
the vessel,
the means to
take you on this trip –
checking the oil,
the fluids,
the tires.
You have done
maintenance on this car
so it can take
you places
you wish to be.

And can you not
use this analogy
to prepare your
consciousness –
the vehicle,
the vessel,
the means you use
to connect with
your Spirit Self,
your Higher Self –
so it can take
you places
you wish to be?

And yes there are
physical aspects
of your vessel
to take care of –
as are you not
a physical as well
as a spiritual be-ing?

But has not the
focus been on
the physical side –
and now as you
prepare your consciousness –
a powerful vessel
that is at the ready
to put forth any thought
or intention
that you wish to
travel to –
but do not these
thoughts and intentions
sometimes take
you to places
you do not wish
to be?

And is this not
the preparation needed –
to still the chatter,
to go deeper within
the consciousness
of your Higher Self;
does not meditation,
sitting in the silence,
time spent with
these preparations –
do they not fine-tune
your vessel,
to quiet the chatter,
so you may sense
the essences of
Who You Are?

And Patience is
the key to this –
as you may have thoughts
that need released –
might you ask
what wishes to come up
to be healed –
is this not part
of the maintenance required –
to prepare this vessel
for the journeys
you wish to take;
are there not sometimes
repairs that you need to make
as you attend to
this vessel with Love?

Can you lovingly care
for this vehicle,
this vessel,
the means you use
to experience this
Journey of Life –
as you become more aware
of the power
of this Vessel of You?

You need not travel far
to find the
innate Essences that lie
within the Vessel of You.

You Are the destination
you seek.

Polish your vessel.
Clear the way –
as you travel home
to You.

You Are Peace.
You Are Love.
Welcome Home.

There Is Love

20170124-xpicture

1/24/17

Sit in the silence,
feel Love surround you,
open your heart –
Love Is There.

Look beyond the worries,
the struggles, the pain,
where is the comfort?
Love Is There.

As you take a breath
and breathe Gratitude in –
does it not fill you up?
Love Is There.

Can you create a space
to sit with You?
And when you still your mind –
Love Is There.

You may call it what you wish,
God, Source, Divine –
You Are that very Essence –
Love Is There.

And as You Are All One –
the Loved Ones that you miss,
they are as close as
your breath, your heart –
Love Is There.

You cannot help but Be
the Love That You Are –
as You Are Loved,
can you not see –
Love Is There.

Sit in the Silence.
Still your mind.
Take a moment
for you to Know –
Love Is There.

There Is Only
You Are Always
Eternal
Magnificent
Love.

Balance of Life

20170123-xpicture

1/23/17

Black and white.
Light and dark.
Up and down.
And does not
the yin yang symbol
represent the balance
of duality
that exists in this life?

Are there not
highs and lows
like a pendulum swing
that moves to and fro,
back and forth –
and the farther it swings
do you not feel
the balance getting smaller?

And does not nature
provide some models
of how to balance
the extremes that
are thrown in its way?

You visualize the tree –
a universal symbol of nature –
with its roots far below,
anchoring the tree
into mother earth,
the limbs reaching high
up to the sky, the sun –
to bring life to the tree.
And the sturdy trunk –
the bridge between
limb and root –
does not the trunk
connect the opposite
parts of the tree –
providing the balance
for the tree to stand –
able to sway when
the strong winds blow,
being flexible,
yet holding its ground?

As the extremes of life,
like strong winds that blow,
seek to lash out
and move you off
your place of center,
your balance of peace –
can you sense your roots
far down into the ground –
your limbs reach up,
getting light from above
and you are supported
from your trunk-
the balance that holds
you steady and strong,
being flexible,
yet holding your ground.

And does not duality
show you where
the balance is –
as you find your center
in the black and white,
light and dark,
up and down
world you live in?

As the yin yang symbol
represents
the coming together
of the opposites –
are you not a perfect
mixture of
human and soul –
finding your center,
the trunk of your tree –
as you become the
Balance of Life?

Balance.
Center.
Breathe.
Peace.
You Are.

Lead With Love

20170122-xpicture

1/22/17

Lead with Love.

Are you looking to follow
other’s footsteps around –
are you waiting for
another to choreograph
the next step?
Lead with Love.

Yes, there are a variety
of dances and steps
that you can learn
to express yourself –
to be in rhythm,
to move as one –
but what is the
underlying truth
to the dance?
Lead with Love.

You can dance
by yourself –
listening to the beat
of your own song
that plays in your heart –
you can dance with others,
sharing the pulsing beat
that grows far and wide,
felt around the world –
and as you move to
the beat,
the rhythm,
the vibration,
the most important step –
is to Lead with Love.

And what happens,
when Love is the music,
the vibration,
the rhythm,
that you follow at first –
only to realize
the music is not
what you hear
on the outside –
it is already playing
in your heart.

And when You and All
Lead with Love –
will you not look around,
sharing smiles,
in the realization that you all
know the same dance,
for is this not
the Dance of Love
that you have come to know
when you Lead with Love?

You know the steps
to the Dance of Love.
There are many variations
of dances and steps
that you can use
to express yourself –
to be in rhythm,
to move as One.

There are no wrong steps
when you Lead with Love.

There is only,
always,
Love.

Apples and Oranges

20170121-xpicture

1/21/17

Comparing apples
to oranges.

Yes, this is a
sentiment that says
you cannot compare
two unique fruits
that express themselves
very differently –
and if you like both,
does each not provide
an enjoyable experience?
Or – one may be your favorite,
and with the qualities
of the other –
you would rather not partake?

You are aware of the
differences between
these two fruits –
yet they share
a category of food –
both coming from a tree
that bears fruit,
two trees that grow
in soil,
needing water and sun
to produce these beautiful fruits.

And now do you not
look at these two
differing fruits –
both sharing the experience
of the life of a tree –
having more in common
from their roots
than the ending
expression of fruit?

And in your life –
you do not dwell
on the differences
between an apple
and an orange –
do you not accept
each of these
for what they are?

And as You Are
an expression of
All That Is –
is your expression
not unique to
Who You Are
here on earth-
but when you go back
to your roots
do you not see
you all are rooted
in Love –
are you not nourished
by the same life-giving Source
as your fellow be-ings?

Would you like it
if the only fruit
that you could enjoy
was an apple or an orange,
with no variation –
is it not more enjoyable
to partake in the
abundance of fruit?

As you honor the differences
of these Expressions of Life –
can you see that you All
are Expressions of Love
at your very core?

Celebrate the
uniqueness
and similarities
of You
of Life
of Love.

All Love.
All One.
Enjoy.

Respond With Love

20170120-xpicture

1/20/17

Action.
Re-action.

Yes, there are physical laws
that can occur
when matter is compressed
and released –
action and reaction,
cause and effect,
but for every human action,
must there be
an equal and opposite
re-action?

And do not the words –
“equal” and “opposite” –
magnify the duality
and comparative nature
of life on earth?

When you think of
human emotion –
that can be reactive
in nature,
must there always be
a reaction that
equals an action?

Do not reactions
tend to take in
the energy and force
of an action
that is often perceived
as an attack
or affront –
thus justifying
an immediate re-action?

Are not reactions
often thought of
as reflexive in nature –
as the term
“knee-jerk” reaction
would imply?

Yes, there are situations
in the physical world
where quick reactions
and instant reflexes
will keep you out of
physical harm’s way –
but have not
actions and re-actions
brought you to
a state of polarity
when every action
is indeed met with
an equal or greater reaction?

If you have become
oppositional in nature,
have you forgotten
there is no opposite
to Love?

Can you call in Love,
your true Nature,
to see the bigger picture –
that Love Is an energy
that need not have an action
to feel its force –
can you feel
this Force of Love
that surrounds and encases
all of the actions
and reactions –
bouncing off
this Bubble of Love
that surrounds you all?

When you choose to
respond with Love –
does not Love
absorb and transmute –
converting an action
into an opportunity
to not react –
but respond with Love?

Is it not a beautiful sight
to see the
reactions to Love?

Begin with Love.
Respond with Love.
Soften the blow of actions
with Love.

With Love,
There Is –
Peace.

Eyes of Love

20170119-xpicture

1/19/17

Look into the eyes.

You can do this
in a mirror
and you are surprised
that it takes some practice,
some getting used to –
to really look into
the eyes of the soul.

Do not people
seldom look at
each other,
eye to eye –
does not one
usually turn away
to break the gaze,
almost as if to hide –
keeping others out
in fear of what
they may see –
or is it in fear
of what others
may see in you?

Now look into the eyes
of a child very young –
do you not see
them delight in
looking back at you?
Are they not waiting
to be seen –
waiting for that
Look of Love –
with less filters
covering up their
eyes of love?

Yes, the eyes
can be reflective
of the ego –
casting judgement,
or seeing separation –
the eyes of ego
can be hard
to hold a gaze.

But truly the eyes
are a window to
your soul –
when you look
at another
with these Eyes of Love –
do your souls
not rush in to say,
“There You Are!”

And in that moment –
however fleeting
when you look
at a stranger –
really seeing them
with the Eyes of Love –
are they not waiting
to be seen –
waiting for that
Look of Love –
with less filters
covering up their
eyes of love –
like the child,
do they not open up
the Window of their Soul?

Look into the eyes
with the Eyes of Love.
Say hello to You
in the eyes of All.

I See You.
I Am You.
We Are One.
Love.
