Receive Love

Receive.

Is it not sometimes
challenging to be
receptive to receive?

Does receiving not
take patience
and a different way
of thinking about
the flow of energy
you are a part of –
that you are immersed in –
the energy That You Are –
do you not see
how your perspective
of consciousness
makes you “think”
that you must go out –
to make this connection,
to bring it in,
in order to
receive?

Is it not the
ego’s way of thinking,
this illusion of separation –
that makes you think
that there is something
outside of you
that you are needing
to receive?

As you ask your thinking mind
to be open to receive –
is not your consciousness
already in its beautiful
state of Knowing –
not “needing” to give
or to receive –
are you not a
perfect aspect
of All That Is?

Is it not when you connect
to your Higher Self,
to the Consciousness of You –
is this not opening up the door
to what you seek?

Are You not already a bridge
to the Love of All That Is –
to the Knowledge
that you seek –
are you ready
and receptive
to receive the Love
That You Are?

Begin with You.
Walk across that Bridge.
Take the hand
that is right
in front of you.

Connect with Love.
Connect with You.
You hold the key
to unlock the doors
of your mind.
Open up the door
to the Love of You.

There Is Love.
There You Are!

Receive.
Embrace.
Experience.
Love.

A Moment of Joy

IMG_4795

3/13/17

The joy of a child.

It is easy to picture –
as are not children
in touch with Joy –
are they not
beings of expression?
There is no doubt
how a child feels –
you know it
when they feel Joy.

You can look
at a joyful child
and know what it
feels like to
embrace this Joy.
And as you peel back
the memories
of times you were joyful –
yes, whatever
you were doing
may have created
a space,
for you to feel joyous –
but was it not Joy
that bubbled
to the surface,
that was waiting
all along –
no matter the situation-
is not Joy always ready
to be released?

And as you grow older
does it not become harder
to let Joy come out –
to play with you,
you may think Joy
is hiding,
you may think life
is far too serious,
to feel the child’s play
of Joy once again.

But as You Are Joy,
do you not know Joy
when you see a child
dancing with abandon,
when a picture of an animal
touches your heart,
when you listen to music
that moves you to dance,
when you laugh at something silly
until tears come to your eyes –
are there not
moments of Joy
in any moment
that you let go?

Take a moment for Joy.
You need not have
a joyful situation
to tap into
the Joy That You Are –
Joy is bubbling,
wanting to come
to the surface –
to remind you of
the Love That You Are.
With Gratitude –
do you not open
the door to Joy?

Release.
Let go.
Let the Joy
That Is You
bubble up
to the surface
to remind you of
the Lightness of Be-ing
Joy,
Peace,
Gratitude,
Love.

And You Are That.

An Open Heart

IMG_4794

3/12/17

Live from the heart.
Connect at the heart.
Open your heart.

And as the heart
is your connection
to the Universe,
to God,
to Source,
to the Divine Love
of All That Is –
it does not matter
the label
you place upon
the Source of Love
that flows through you –
you wish to
always open
up your heart.

But with an open heart,
do you not at times
feel vulnerable,
as you know
there is emotion
that is centered
in your heart?

Does not your heart ache
when strong emotion
floods you with feeling –
are there not times
when you feel
your heart may break?

Does it sometimes
not feel safe
to lead with the heart –
do you not wish
to close it down
to protect
what you perceive
may hurt you?

Yes, the heart can feel
what comes to it
from outside –
and is it not
always looking
for the Love?

And if the heart
were a one-way door,
only able to receive love
from an outside source –
is that not when
you feel vulnerable –
putting you at risk
to experience hurt?

But as the heart
is the center
of Who You Really Are –
as it is the
source of
Divine Love
that flows through you –
can you direct
this powerful flow
of the Love That You Are –
allowing it to
encircle you,
embrace you,
remind you –
with every breath you take,
with every beat of
your amazing heart –
“I Love You?”

And what if
your open heart,
were so full
it did not need
to ask from
an outside source –
“Do you love me?”

For is not
an open heart,
able to see Love
wherever it looks –
there is no shortage
of Love to find
when Love Is
Everywhere.

And where is Love?
Love Is You.
It is in your open heart –
can you open up
your heart to Love You?

Be vulnerable
with the Love
That Is You.
You are safe
in the warm embrace
of the Love of You.

Open all sides
of your heart –
and feel the
Love That You Are.

Live from the heart.
Connect with your heart.
Open your heart
to You,
Dear One,
to You.

You cannot Be
anything
but Love.

A Question of Love

IMG_4793

3/11/17

Why is “why”
a favorite question
in the world of duality
that you live in –
does not “why”
denote that there
is an answer
to any question
you may ask?

Does not “why” seek
to put in order,
to help make sense
in your curious mind –
to answer “why did this”
and “why did that” happen –
there must be
a reason why?

And as your mind
seeks to know the reason –
might you only be
able to reason
with the information
that is in your mind?

Does not the term
“make sense” –
invite the turning wheels
of thoughts and beliefs
to produce
a “reasonable” answer
to the questions
that you seek?

And what if,
instead of “making” sense,
seeking answers from
the outside in –
you learn to trust
your inner sense –
do you not know what
the answers are,
even before you ask?
Are your innate senses
not always available
as you experience You
from the inside out?

Do you not have
more information
when you open up
to the Knowledge of You –
have you not heard
to “trust your instincts” –
is that not trusting
your intuition,
embracing the innate
Senses of You?

Yes, instead of
“making” sense –
can you now sense
what you are able
to create?

And as you
ask the question “why”,
does not the answer
begin with “be-cause” –
as if there must
be a cause
to be-ing?

There are no conditions
to the be-ingness of You.
There is no need
to “make sense”
of the Perfection
That You Are.

The only answers
to any questions
that your human mind
may be compelled to ask are:
Sense Love.
Trust Love.
Be Love.

Why?
Love Is All There Is.

Release With Love

IMG_4792

3/10/17

Before a storm,
there is a build-up
of energy –
clouds fill with moisture,
cold air meets hot,
as energies collide –
lightening may crack,
thunder begins to rumble,
rolling across the sky –
you feel the earth tremble,
releasing energy
as it moves through
and away.

And then the rain
begins to fall –
as if following
a signal,
that it is time
to release –
it is okay
to let go,
the clouds no longer
need to hold in
the water –
the rain is ready
to be released.

Do you not experience
cleansing when
water flows;
from a spigot of a shower,
or as water encircles you
when you jump into
a pool,
or while soaking
in a tub
with quiet around you,
or when standing outside
with arms outstretched
as the rain
is falling down?

Are there not times
when you are in
your own storm –
when energies build up
to a crescendo of feeling –
emotions erupt
and you cannot hold
the feelings inside –
do tears not fall
as if following a signal –
that it is time to release,
it is okay to let go.

There is a cleansing
when water falls –
it can sweep away
the remnants
of what is no longer needed –
allowing what remains
to glow even brighter –
basking in the warmth
of the Love in your heart.

When the skies feel
that they have darkened,
does not the sun
always return to the sky?

Let go.
Release.
Love Always remains.
Always,
always,
Love.

Book of Love

IMG_4791

3/09/17

You visualize a book
with a picture in it
for you to fill in –
by turning over pages
that have printed on them
a piece of the picture –
a part of the scene –
that is only printed
upon each new page –
and as you keep turning,
each page adds to
what you see in
the picture before you;
with each page turned
can you now see
more of the picture –
until there is
another page to turn?

At any given time
as you look at this book –
you may be able to see
what is there
before you –
do you not experience
your beautiful story –
one page,
one chapter
at at time?

Does your understanding
not filter through
the pages you have turned,
the scene that is before you –
but as You Are
the Author of your Story –
do you not have glimpses,
revelations as to
what may happen next?

But as you do not wish
to spoil the story –
do you not savor
each page that you turn –
knowing that in time,
the rest of the story
will reveal itself
with each page
that you see?

And as this scene
builds upon each page –
as more parts of
the picture
begin to fill in –
does your perspective
not change
as you see with
greater clarity,
what the Author
wishes for you
to see?

And when you think
you have filled in
the entire picture-
bringing a greater understanding,
admiring its beauty,
do you not wish
to turn to the next page,
the next chapter,
or even to change the book –
is there not more
to write,
to read,
to explore
as the Author of
the Story of You?

Your mind only knows
what pictures it sees
at any given time
in the Book of You –
but as You Are
the Author of your story –
can you lead the way
with Love in your heart?

Is not your
Never-ending Story
based upon
the Truth of Love?

Let Love be your guide
as you turn each page,
as You Are co-creator
with the greatest Author.
Let Love be the storyline
in the Book of You.

Be the Love Story
that you wish to read.
Unfolding,
experiencing,
turning each page
with Love.

Peace and Calm

IMG_4790

3/08/17

In the moments
when you feel peace,
sitting with a
sense of calm –
does not ego
like to look
over your shoulder,
as it waits
for something
to happen –
does not ego
like it best when
emotions are stirred up?

And as emotions
can be a signal
to your body
to react –
or move into action,
might emotion
also be a sign
to move back
into the peace,
to find the calm
within the storm –
does not this
dance with emotion
allow for accepting
what you feel?

Is not ego asking for
you to acknowledge
how it feels –
and does not ego
wish to feel
the Love of You?

And the more
you can wrap
loving arms
around all of you –
accepting your emotions,
allowing what you feel –
might ego
then not need
to draw attention
to itself,
so that you
will send Love
to ego, too?

Ego may not like
when you sit
within the calm –
when you move
in a state of Peace –
but might You also
need to adjust
to what it feels like
to be calm –
to know that
All Is Well –
as you accept
all states of be-ing
that you are in?

The more you
move about
in the peaceful
state of calm –
might it be okay if
ego tags along?

Embrace and Love
all States of You.
There is learning
in this constant
Dance of Life.

Allow.
Accept.
Love.
Peace.

All Is Well.
