True Colors

A spectacle of color
is beginning to show
on the palette of Fall.

A carpet of color
on a winding road,
leaves already fallen
from the wind and rain,
but do not their colors
catch your eye,
as if the road
has always been lined
with yellow, orange
and red?

What color leaves
on the trees,
do you see –
do they not
seem to stagger
their bursts of color,
might it be the
red hues,
that one day
draw your attention,
then next a wave of yellow,
is all you can see?

Is there not
a symphony
of change,
of color,
a perfection in timing
that you need not know
to enjoy,
this changing painting of Fall,
orchestrated by Nature,
does it not change often,
something new to see
every day?

Does not each tree,
each leaf,
have its own timing
of when to let go
of summer’s green –
does not Leaf display
its true colors in Fall,
is it not time for Leaf,
that once blended in,
to step into its beauty,
now saying, “look at me!”

Is this not a Season
to celebrate color,
to gasp when Light
brings out colors
so bright –
what are your
True Colors,
that you wish to share,
to let the Light
shine on you
so bright –
is there not a perfection
of timing,
at work behind
the scenes,
as you build momentum,
as you reach a peak?

But as the leaf shows,
Fall is not a finale,
after winter’s rest,
will not spring begin anew –
can you enjoy and celebrate
each season of experiencing,
do not your True Colors,
come shining through?

Celebrate the colorful
Palette of You.
Display your
True Colors
in the Light of Love.

Simply, Elegant Love

What are you ready
to see,
what appears before
your eyes,
do not opportunities
for growth,
for change
abound?

When you are ready
to look more closely,
what comes up
to your awareness –
might you now see
what was hidden
from your view?

Like spider webs
in morning dew,
do not many
then appear,
these amazing works of art,
swaying in the breeze,
in fields of grass,
on wires up high,
many more than you
can count,
but you do not
see them
if the conditions
are not right.

What comes up
in your awareness,
as you look another way –
maybe from a
different perspective,
than you had before?

Can you look beyond
the obvious,
as you broaden
your perspective –
might things take on
a different meaning,
if you question
your beliefs,
as you ask yourself,
is what I am seeing
really True?

Is the Truth
not more simple,
then what drama
would have you believe –
when you strip away
the stories,
are you not looking
to believe
what is always there
for you,
are you not looking
for the answer –
and is it not
simply, elegant
Love?

Does Love not appear
when you least expect it,
is it not here
when you call it out,
does Love not appear
when you draw Light near,
when you are ready
to see –
simply, elegant,
Love?

Can you imagine
the morning dew,
that shows you
what you missed before,
when you are ready
to see
All That You Are –
is it not simply, elegant
Love?

You need not
make it complicated,
no special program
do you need –
Love is where
you look for Love,
by Be-ing Love
do you not find Love,
can you start
with a single thought
that begins with
simply, elegant
Love?

When you are ready
to see,
what appears before
your eyes,
can you see
the amazing
Work of Art,
that is simply, elegant
Love?

See Love
in All
you see –
simply,
elegant,
Love.

Love and Gratitude

Do you not possess
different perspectives,
different vantage points
to look
at any situation
for understanding
or for Truth.

The human story
is complicated,
different truths
get debated as
you seek to find
who is right
or wrong,
or an outcome
you are counting on –
do not expectation,
disappointment,
anger and pain
often reign
in this state of Life?

It is hard to
give up this perspective,
even as you know Love
you resist,
but can you diffuse
any situation –
with Love
and Gratitude?

Can you paint
a different picture,
to see a different
way to look –
might you choose
a different color,
might you use
a different stroke,
if you have always
started at the top,
might you try
from bottom – up,
can you create
this new landscape,
using the colors
of Love
and Gratitude?

You may resist change,
but is not resistance
usually where
there is learning,
there is growth,
even as you wish
to turn away –
can you turn into
what you bump up
against,
as your palette now
contains the hues –
helping you create
a new scene to play
with Love
and Gratitude?

You can see
in black and white,
you can see
what colors blend –
but can you
simplify any picture,
when you see
with Love
and Gratitude?

Can you embrace
Gratitude,
especially when
it is hard to do –
does Gratitude
not nudge you,
lovingly,
to step outside
of you?

And when this perspective
changes,
opening you to
Be You –
is this not where you
can see it all –
when you play,
create and understand,
in the energy
of Love
and Gratitude?

Your human side
may not understand,
what your Higher Self
knows is True –
you can see
and experience
the Masterpiece of You
with Love
and Gratitude.

A Presence of Love

Do you not search
for a reason,
is there not a need
to justify,
do you not look
for where to place blame
on what causes you
hurt or pain?

Can you feel the energy
with this,
fingers pointing out
away from you –
“woe is me”,
“look what you’ve done” –
and yes, you sometimes
place blame on you,
have there not been times,
when you think
you are the reason
for your own pain?

And what if you find
“the reason” –
does that not come
with justification,
do you not search
for “why”
someone or you
would “deserve”
to receive what you
consider to be
a cause of
suffering or pain?

What if you threw out
all the roles,
that you place
on what you experience –
what if you looked
through a lens
that neither blames
or justifies –
what if there is
a broader perspective
on what you play out,
what you are here to learn –
what if you send
Gratitude
to all that comes
your way?

Is it not in
these earthly roles,
that your soul
can stretch and learn –
and is there
not learning for you
right now,
right here,
today?

Can you not change
the energy of
every experience
you are in,
when you accept
that you are part
of the experience?
Is there not Strength
when you can
move beyond the surface –
and know that the
experience is
what you chose
and that it is not just
happening “to” you?

As separate as you
may sometimes feel,
you are always
part of the Whole –
as you wish to feel
unconditional Love,
is this “training ground”
not a place for you
to be the presence of
this Love, too –
yes, do you not search
for a reason,
is there not a need
for justification,
do you not look
for how or who
(including you),
is deserving of this Love?

There are no strings
to Love.
Set yourself Free
from If – then – That.
As You Are Love,
be the Presence of Love
and receive All That
You Are.

In Gratitude –
there is Strength,
there is Peace,
and There Is Love.
Always, always,
Love.

I Am, I Am

State Who You Are –
I Am.
I Am.

There is a seed,
a stirring within you,
that remembers
Who You Are.

You may have one,
you may have many
purposes in this Life,
but is there not purpose
in remembering,
You Are Love?

You have forgotten
so you can experience
All There Is –
that will lead you,
that will remind you
of All That Is.

All That Is You,
All That Is Love –
and You Are That.
And so are you,
and you,
and you –
All One,
One Love.

Yes, there are choices made
in your forgetful state,
but does not an outcome
there,
make you look
over here,
is not duality designed
for you to experience
what is not –
so that you may
discover
and remember
What Is
and Who You Are?

Can you have Gratitude
for every fork
in the road,
in the knowing,
in the remembering
that there is
no “wrong” turn –
you cannot “fail”,
there is no other place
you “need” to be –
you are where
you actually started –
You Are Here
and
You Are Home.

State Who You Are –
I Am.
I Am.

You Are Here.
You Are Home.
You Are Love.
And so very Loved.

A Place for Love

Allow Love.

Do you not sense
the freedom,
the release,
the understanding,
when you
Allow Love?

Does Love not know
where to go,
what to heal,
when you allow space
to Allow Love
to Be?

Allow Love.

Is this not
a receiving breath
that you draw in
from within
your very core –
that you may have
noticed or not
before,
do you not have access
to All That Is,
that breathes this Life
into you,
when you surrender,
when you let go,
when you enter
a space
to Allow Love?

And in this allowance,
is there not a
question –
what would Love do?

And we wish to tell you,
there is no need
to think about
what Love would “do” –
as you Allow Love
to flow within you –
will you not be
in the space
of how would Love Be –
yes, then choose your actions
from this Place of Love,
this loving space,
as you make room
and Allow Love.

And you need
not think
that allowing Love
is not strong enough,
or active enough –
have you not experienced
what conscious thought
has created in
your world?

If you wish to change
the world,
does it not begin
with a thought –
might you choose Love,
does it not start,
when you Allow Love?

Allow.
Receive.
Be guided.
Be loving.
Be kind.

Make time,
make room.
Make a
Place for Love.

Waves of Love

20171004 Waves of Love

10/04/17

When looking through
the looking glass,
sometimes it is
too dark to see,
you may see that Love
is hard to find –
what is this place
you have stumbled upon?

When you look out
and see a reflection
of a world that
does not appear
to make sense –
as You Are a
co-creater of
All That Is –
can you step up,
might you volunteer,
to make waves
as a Wave of Love?

As All is energy
and like energy
attracts like energy,
be aware of what
you focus on –
does not every experience
give you the experience
to choose Love
again and again?

The ripple effect
is very strong,
it can move mountains,
it can change
the landscape –
you can make
waves that are
big or small –
size doesn’t matter,
when You Are
a Wave of Love.

But a Wave of Love
begins with you –
it is not a reaction
to what you fear,
any dark abyss
is devoid of Light –
can you turn up yours,
can you shine bright?

If the ripple effect
of hurt and pain
is in need of a
new movement
in order to change,
can Waves of Love
not be felt
in an instant,
when you focus
and keep your eye,
your attention
on Love?

As a Wave of Love
will you not attract
any resonant energy
that echoes with Love –
Love Is Here
in everything –
you may be distracted,
you may be in pain,
but do not
Ripples of Love
begin to make waves?

When looking through
the looking glass,
do you not see
sparks of Light –
invite them in,
find them in You,
turn up your Light,
send out your
Waves of Love.

Love heals
all that
comes up
to be seen,
to be felt,
to be healed.

Be Strength.
Be Courage.
Be part of
a new beginning.
Begin Now.
Begin with a
Wave of Love.
