Meeting You

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

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.

With Loving Eyes

Are there not times
when you take stock,
take a look around –
it may be a garden,
or landscaping,
a single tree,
or bush that blooms,
that catches your eye –
do you not
enjoy seeing
what grows
around you?

Do you not marvel
at how big
things have grown –
have they not expanded,
they may be
growing out of
their space –
you may need
to trim,
or prune,
or relocate
to a better place
so that growth
can flourish
once again.

When you take time
to look around
at your surroundings
that you see everyday –
are there not
things that you
overlook,
until one day
you are ready to see?
There might be
repairs that need
tending to,
or things to put away,
a pile here,
a stack there,
that do not
draw your
attention until
they do.

Are there not times
when you take stock,
take a look around –
at what is inside,
it may be your
purpose,
your growth,
or adjustments
you would like to make –
are there not
things that
draw your attention,
that you have
not been able to see?

When you look
with fresh eyes,
with loving eyes
that wish to see,
might there be
an adjustment here,
some sprucing there –
but can you survey
the Whole of You,
the perfection of You –
as you look beyond
what is on the
surface
and dive deep
to the Truth of You –
are you not
a magnificent garden
growing full
and full of Love?

When you take stock,
take a look around –
can you close
the eyes that judge
and see with
all your heart,
with loving eyes,
that see the Whole –
can you not
marvel at
the beauty and
the growth of You?

Yes, stop at times
to survey
the beauty
and the growth –
with loving eyes,
can you see
the Love
That Is You?

Flourish in the garden
of the Love That You Are.
Growing.
Expanding.
Seeing with the
Eyes of Love.

What a marvel.
What perfection.
That Is You!

Learning

Is not life
full of lessons?
Is there not 
learning everyday?
Some bring
pure enjoyment,
some are ones
you would not
prefer.

But is there
not growth
when you flex
a muscle,
do you not
sometimes
need a push
to grow –
is it not about
your reaction
to that which
shows up
in lessons learned?

With cause
there may be
a reaction –
you live in
a world
of cause
and effect –
but do not
emotions
that come up
help you
find places
to expand
or heal –
are emotions
not a barometer
of what needs
tending to?

Is not evolving
full of experiencing,
to help you
find Love
in everything.
Is not finding Love
in a complex world
that sometimes seems
to be so far
from Love –
yes, it is hard,
but are not all
journeys worth
the effort –
when you find
the answer
Is Love?

Can you move
beyond your
reactions,
can you honor
your emotions
and see –
that Love is always
here for you –
it is
What You Are,
and will always
Be –
can you start
by loving You?

Can you Love
every reaction,
can you bring
Love in
for Peace?
Can you thank
and be grateful
for any lesson
that brings out
the Love in You?

Life.
Lessons.
Lift
the Love
in You.

Work with Love.
Play with Love.
React with Love.
Answer with Love
Grow with Love.
Evolve with Love.

Always, always Love.

A Place of Love

A hermit crab
finds a shell
that becomes
his house,
he is at home –
what makes
you feel at home
wherever you are?

Like the crab,
you may wish
to feel protected
and secure –
yes, a house
will keep you safe
from the elements
outside –
it gives you
a safe haven,
a protective shell –
but is it not
Love that makes
a house
a home?

What is the shift
when you sense
that you are home –
what makes a place
familiar,
do you not feel
“at home”
sometimes when
you are away?
Are there not others
that you feel
“at home” with –
is there not a
sense of belonging
when you feel
settled –
when you feel
at home?

And this sense
of belonging,
being in the right place
at the right time,
being at Peace
where you are,
no matter the
particular space
you may be in,
can you not
feel “at home”
in your own skin –
could you not be
like the hermit crab
and make any place
your “home?”

Might you
come home
to the Love
That You Are –
You Are perfect
Where You Are –
there is no place
you need to be –
might you Be
at home
in this space –
in this Place of Love?

Come Home
to Who You Are.
If Love makes
a house
a home –
is not home
Wherever You Are?

You Are Home.
You Are Love
as You Are Loved.

Here.
There.
Everywhere.
Welcome, welcome
Home.

Sit With Love

Can you let go
of any outcome,
can you release
expectation
for a moment –
can you
sit with
Love?

It does not
trickle in
from the outside,
you need not
go try to
find it,
is it not
always ready –
when you
call in Love?

Is it not
when you
let go
of the chatter
in your mind –
when you clear out
your “story talk”,
do you not
always find
the essence of You
is always there,
waiting patiently,
to show
that You Are Love?

You may need
to clear some space
for your awareness
to catch up
to what your
soul already knows –
does your mind
not look for clues
to the perfection
that You Are –
do you not
rejoice
when you see
and sense
this Love
that fills you up?

But we wish to tell you
Love has been
here all along –
your mind will
play tricks,
letting you forget
the Truth of Love –
do you not
know Peace
when you
remember
You Are Love?

Begin with Love.
Sit with Love.
Call in Love.
Remember Love.

All Is Well
and
You Are
Love.

Seeds of Love

Trees drop seeds,
do not saplings
keep springing up –
even as you try
to clear them out?
Any garden
that you plant,
are there not
other plants
and weeds
that continue to
pop up –
the soil is fertile
and do you not water,
making the
perfect conditions
to grow?

Any field that
is cleared –
will not stay
clear for long –
does not
Mother Nature
keep growing,
keep returning
to her natural state
of beauty –
which is to create,
to grow,
to begin again?

Yes, even as
you cut back
a bush
or plant –
do you not
see how
new growth
cannot wait
to begin?

You –
as human,
as a soul,
are wired
to evolve,
to grow,
You Are
Masters of Creation –
what do you
add to your soil
to enrich
your experience,
what do you need –
how does
your garden grow?

Yes, as you
take care
of your body –
(does it not
walk you
through this
experience?)
does your soul
not rejoice
when you
express yourself
as Love –
can you not
drop Seeds of Love
wherever you go?

Is there not
growth in
every moment
that you
cultivate Love –
is not Love
the driving force
that helps
you grow
and develop –
is Love not
the nutrient
you need –
that helps
all parts
of you to grow?

Tend to your
garden,
your center,
your soul –
work Love
in all of
your experiences,
let Love
be the Light
that shines,
bringing life
to all you do –
are you not
a master gardener –
do you not
know what to do –
might you be
the Light
and Love
That You Are?

Let the garden
of your Be-ing,
grow rich
and full of blooms.
Such beauty,
such growth,
what Love You Are!

Create
and grow
with the
Seeds of Love.
