Ripening

Fruit growing on a tree,
be it apple, peach or pear,
is it not a miracle
to behold,
when you see the branches
bare,
from these woody starts
fruit grows,
beginning as shoots,
then buds
to blooms –
opening magically in
the sun,
when you look at
an apple, peach or pear,
would you think
it could come from there?

Does not the miracle
of a fruit tree,
help you to see
you never know,
what may be the result
of miraculous growth,
at any stage you
may not see,
what the end result
may be –
and even what you think
may be the end,
will not the seeds
grow again,
into another tree,
more blooms to sprout,
as the shining sun
kisses ripening fruit?

Fruit growing on a tree,
does not this miracle
help you to see,
with patience,
nurturing and care,
the tree will grow
with fruit to bear,
thriving in the dirt,
with rain and sun,
Tree does not do this
all alone,
does not the miracle
of fruit occur,
when the conditions are
ripe for growth?

Be patient.
Be nurturing.
Be caring.
Be Love.
Hold the miraculous
space for growth.
Be the dirt,
the rain,
the sun –
see what Love
can become.
Each step of growth
contains the
Miracle of Love.

A Sweet Spot

When you can “hear”
the silence,
is that not when
you are in a
receptive state,
is that not Be-ing,
without seeing,
going beyond
your senses five –
is not this state
of floating,
gliding upon
the Wings of Love,
is this not a natural
State of Be-ing,
that helps you feel
so very alive?

Might you ask Love
to Be with you,
no matter your
rocky road,
You Are Spirit,
You Are awareness,
You know this
when you reach
this state –
merging the two
as you navigate
this role here
that you play,
is that not the
Sweetest Spot
that helps you
Be Love
everyday?

Keep merging,
keep blending
all aspects of You
in all you do –
There Is Love
in every corner,
as you shine
your Light
on You,
let go of judgement,
let go of “should”-ing,
let Love rise up
in every way,
when you shine your Light
into the darkness,
does not the darkness
go away?

Find the perfect spot
that fills you up
with so much Love –
this is a natural state,
not one that you
need to make up
or only dream of,
let Love guide you
through all paths,
be they rough
or be they smooth –
follow the still small voice
within You,
turn it up
and listen to You.

Beyond what you think
you know,
there is a Knowing
that you can trust.
It is the Love
That You Are,
gliding on your
Sweet Spot
of Love.

Awakening

What is awakening?

You may (or may not)
remember
when color came to
the little screen,
how the gray pictures
you were used to seeing,
then seemed to pop out
in front of you,
look back
at the movie
about a wizard,
does not Dorothy
wake up as if
from a dream,
to see the color,
to experience the magic,
that projects upon
her screen?

It may come quickly,
it may take layers
of understanding,
then you say, “Aha” –
is it not as if
you flip a switch,
open a door,
you cannot go back –
yes, you like reminders,
you dive in deeper,
as you can understand
only so much,
what was black and white
is now in color,
with every hue
that Love is made of.

Yes, there are details
you can study,
the Science of Spirit
can be explained,
but in your heart,
there is a Knowing,
that goes beyond
what is in this
or another plane –
take it all in,
or just a drop,
the Truth is in
every cell of You –
is not a grain of sand
also the beach,
where do you begin,
where do you end?

As Love has no ending,
as You Are Love
and Love Is You,
is not Awakening
when your Knowing,
knows All Is One
and One Is You!

The Grace of Love

Do you not find Strength
when you least expect it,
does Strength not give
you the power to move –
to keep going,
to keep flowing,
when you feel
that you may
get stuck,
yes, life can throw you
obstacles,
you may feel like
you are running
through muck,
but does not Strength
through Grace,
help you rise up,
are you not lifted
by the Grace of Love?

When you feel your
energy waning,
when the burdens
seem too big
to bear,
with Grace
and with Humility,
can you ask,
“I need some help,
here!”
With surrender
you are not giving up,
are you not opening
up more space –
to let Love
help you to find your
Courage,
to face any challenges
with Grace.

When your human self
is bombarded,
is there not comfort
in the Arms of Love,
can you remember,
can you ask –
“remind me what
I am made of?”
Feel the familiar Peace
surround you,
helping you find balance
in your human life,
with Love may you find
Strength and Courage
as you turn up
your Shining Light.

With Grace and Love
You Are Strength,
You Are Courage,
when you need it most,
when you forget.
Let Love remind you
Who You Are –
You Are Light
and You Are Love.

A Mighty Tree

A tree standing
in the forest
is still a majestic,
beautiful tree,
but does it not thrive,
is it not protected
by the trees
and plants
it is near,
does not a forest,
does not nature
work together
as a community,
a canopy of leaves
over the dirt,
the ground beneath?

Might the tree bring
shade to others
that cannot weather
too much sun,
might its leaves
hold precious water
so that it and others
can drink some,
there are a multitude
of interactions,
between trees standing
side by side,
is not a collection of trees,
a forest,
teeming with purpose
and with life?

You Are as majestic
as the tree,
standing straight and tall,
sometimes you wish
to be solitary,
sometimes you wish
the support of all,
know that just like
a forest,
you have an integral
role to play,
being You,
part of All,
wholly Light
in every way.

Be you the shade,
or the shaded,
stretch your branches
far and wide –
ask for help
when you need it,
take turns giving
and receiving Light,
your roots are connected,
always together
with the Source of
All That Is –
stand tall,
beam of Light,
with the Strength
and Peace
of Love.

Everywhere Is Love

What are Here and There?

Are they not locations
based on perspectives
within a space and linear
constraint,
if you can only be
in one place
at a time,
then you would need
words like,
Here and There –
but as Love has
no boundaries,
as Love exists
Everywhere,
how can you be
Here,
with your Loved Ones
over There?

Yes, it may feel
like a stretch
to comprehend this
where you are –
basing your belief,
your perceptions,
on what you see
in front of you –
you have knowledge,
you have awareness,
that your brain
may not be aware of –
but do you not know
in your heart,
that Everywhere
Is Love?

Now expand your
“Everywhere”
and do not Here and There
slip away,
you may only experience this
when you are sleeping,
or in a meditative state,
but a thin veil,
this separation
that you perceive
from your eyes “There”,
is only in YOUR mind,
remember Love Is
Everywhere.

You can keep trying
to put into words,
what goes beyond
the language that you speak,
let your heart do
the “talking” and
you will find
what you seek.

Focus on the Love,
this beautiful emotion
that goes beyond
what you may comprehend –
in your music,
in your songs,
is Love not Here, There
and Everywhere?

You wish to draw your
Loved Ones in closer
as you may feel
they have slipped
from your view,
there is no need to
“bring them in” –
They are always
right with You.

The Sound of Love

20180511 XPicture

5/11/18

Love is ubiquitous.
It cannot be lost
or even found,
it is truly all
around,
in every beat
of your heart,
in the vibration
of every sound,
it is Who You Are,
not who you
wish to become,
go to your heart
and Be the
Beat of Love.

You may need to clear
what is not in sync,
what feels like fear,
what has a dissonant
beat,
what separates you
from a harmonious song,
is when you think
you are alone
or do not belong –
there is nothing further
from the Truth,
You Are made of Love
and Love Is You.

Open your heart
and let Love flow,
where there is heartache,
let that teach you
so you will know,
Love does not leave
or go anywhere –
Love connects beyond,
what you see
and is always there,
Love vibrates with
the Song that is
You –
and those you Love
are always dancing
with you.

How do you sing with
and be in sync
with this Love?
Open your heart
and send your Love
far and wide,
surround all that you
see,
with no conditions,
just truly Be
an Ambassador for Love,
will not the angels
from above
help you sing your
Magnificent
Song of Love.

Sing it loud,
sing it proud,
spread the word,
You Are Love.
Love Is you.
Love Is me.
We Are One
and will always Be
together always singing
the Song of Love.
