We have to start somewhere to ignite change and bring forward the space of our hearts that knows we can shelter, educate, inspire and develop an interconnected community of man in service to the best in each other.  Let love liberate your heart.  Let love seep into the heart of each matter and then let your heart take you somewhere you never imagined.  Let being a loving presence to yourself each day be your guide.

Peace comes from knowing peace

Love comes from being Loving

Gifts come from wholly giving

In this light, take a moment today to remember why you are here.

Get inspired.  Stand up and be of service with love

Be someone in which other people are enlivened to rise up into all their glory in the presence of a demonstration of self love.

 When you are thinking with Love, your ratio of joy over irritation increases exponentially.  Your vision shifts and your heart opens.

Enough said.

May you feel connected, comforted and full of peace

Today. Now. Always.

Love Well.

With Infinite Love and Gratitude

For the #Next100 Days I am going to consider the possibility there is another way….

I will let love liberate my heart.

I will let love completely feast on my life.

I won’t spin out, I will choose to take a beat and breathe, just breathe.

I won’t judge success or failure.  I will celebrate my effort and action.

I will listen and stay open to the loving action that needs to be taken

I will encourage others to fly.

I won’t stay asleep, I will awaken to the truth.

I will take flight into the possibility of the present moment.

I will see the truth shining through each heart I meet.

I will follow my still small voice in owning what I know

I will let love lead the way.

I will savor the fruits of my labor.

I won’t stay stuck in my story, I will quite simple love the adventure.

I won’t shy away from what needs to be done.  I will impact every situation with love.

I won’t listen to sounds of discontent.  I will harmonize in my happiest self.

I won’t test anyone or anything trying to prove a point.  I will have acceptance and forgiveness for who I am, right now.

I won’t hide in the shadows. I will ignite my light!

I won’t shy away from commitment, I will practice showing up for myself

I won’t focus on the negative, I will accentuate the positive

I won’t worry about what might happen, I will celebrate what does

I will have a miracle.

I won’t talk about war, I will feel peace.

I won’t talk about what isn’t working. I will experience what is.

I won’t complain about what people don’t do. I will appreciate what they do.

I am going to allow myself to be uplifted.

And be willing to see change. In a new light.

DAY THIRTY NINE MEL’S LOVE LAND #NEXT100 | FEAST ON YOUR LIFE

In #LoveLand101, For the Next 100 Days, LOVE YOU (for life), Uncategorized on October 30, 2014 at 3:10 pm

In full presence of yourself. Today is the day.  It feels right to share this work of poetry from west indies poet, Derek Walcott, in the midst of his quite lengthy works, this poem, short and concise and full of the richness of forgiveness comes as a welcome breeze in the explorations of our daily chaos as the world turns.  Take this moment to ground into the feeling beyond the words and worlds of your space and melt into the flowing river of love’s greatest gift.

The time will come
when, with elation
you will greet yourself arriving
at your own door, in your own mirror
and each will smile at the other’s welcome,
and say, sit here. Eat.

You will love again, 
you will love again, 
the stranger who was your self.
Give wine. Give bread. 

Give back your heart
to itself, to the stranger 

who has loved you all your life, 
whom you ignored for another, 
who knows you by heart.

Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,
the photographs, the desperate notes,
peel your own image from the mirror.

Sit. Feast on your life.

–Derek Walcott

Each day is the opportunity to be a full feasting day filled with love.  We are a work in progress, we are more than what stares back at us in any mirror that presents.  We are hear to be loving to ourselves and those we meet, to share ourselves in the aches and pains and joys and loves of being alive.  Experience the sparkle, diamond, rainbows of your life.  Enjoy all of it, embrace the deepest space of your truest self and when it is time, sit and feast on your life exactly as it is with no judgment, no apologies only love for you.  All of you.

May you feel connected, comforted and full of peace.

Today. Now. Always.

May your heart open in ways never before possible
revealing the deepest truth of your fullest knowing.

With Infinite Love and Gratitude

DAY THIRTY EIGHT MEL’S LOVE LAND #NEXT100 |EXPAND YOUR BREATH

In #LoveLand101, Awaken, For the Next 100 Days on October 29, 2014 at 8:13 am

There’s so much emphasis we place on what we ‘think’ happened. ‘I fell down. better not do that again.’ In reality we don’t know, anything.  Falling down could be the best thing that every happened to us.

The song Pick Yourself Up written by Jerome Kern and Dorothy Fields from the movie Swing Time is the purest example of this simple truth.

“Take a deep breath.
Pick yourself up.
Dust yourself off.
And. Start all over again.”

Words. to live by.

Take a new look, expand your breathing and see things differently.

This breath can represent a change.
This breath a new direction.
This breath the reclaiming of some dream.
This breath redeeming hope.

Resigned can be a thing of the past. Heartache doesn’t disappear but is replaced slowly, quickly, hard to say. Change travels its own course. Allow yourself to enjoy the process even though it feels different. It may be scary; it may feel tough; notice it and do it anyway. Breathe.  Just Breathe.  — Excerpt from Melanie Lutz’s The Bare Melcessities

Here’s an affirmation to try in this breath and the next…

I recenter in my body
I realign with each breath I take
I love myself in each rise and fall of my chest
Connecting with the field of limitless possibility
 
I stay open to the surprise of the moment
In alignment with my authentic self
Free from fear and ego
And the tyranny of my thinking
Clearing any energy picked up along the way
I relax into the truth
Wholly free.

May you feel connected, comforted and full of peace

Today. Now. Always.

May your heart open in ways never before possible
revealing the deepest truth of your fullest knowing.

With Infinite Love and Gratitude
