Gentling of my Heart

‘Tis the gentling of my heart
that allows life
to flow
with ripples of Love.

’Tis the gentling of my heart
that shows me the way
of Wisdom
beyond that which I’ve known.

‘Tis the gentling of my heart
that plants the seeds
of Joy
that burst forth from within.

‘Tis the gentling of my heart
that opens the gates
to wonders
of Magic wherever I go.

’Tis the gentling of my heart
that aligns me with
the Divinity
within me.

Embracing Your Ego

The ego’s primary desire is to keep you safe,
and it only knows one way to do that
by manipulating people and things.

Once you lovingly embrace your ego
and introduce it to your innate well-being,
it will happily join you hand-in-hand with your Divinity.
And what a joyous homecoming that is!!

For Love is the only protection you will ever need.
Once you view life through the eyes of love,
the ego’s illusion of fear disappears.

Cauldron of my Heart

There are times. . .
my outer world feels like
everything has come to a standstill.
Nothing appears to be happening
despite the racing of my mind
in search of something to do
to give itself credence
in a world that’s gone amuck
in pretenses that make no sense.

Meanwhile. . .
my inner sanctum
is bubbling in answer
to the quickening call of the Divine
with each expansion of Consciousness
and my Creator Self is cooking up
a delicious spicy stew
to be stirred and savored
with the essences of Love and Joy.

When I dip my spoon
into the cauldron of my heart
and raise it to my lips
it brings sublime nourishment
and courage to express anew
that which others fail to notice
in a world of busyness
that has naught
to render a pause.

Thus, my BeLoveds,
tend the bubbling of your heart
and serve up your bowls of Love and Joy
to those who are in need
of the nourishment of the Divine.

Pleasures of the Soul

What if . . .
we remember the
love
joy
pleasure
and gifts
of every relationship
we have ever experienced

Rather than . . .
holding onto the
sorrow
regrets
bitterness
and pain
of separation
from our original intent?

THIS is how our Soul
views our life
reveling in the pleasure
of every experience
for the pure love of life.

Why not live as the Soul does
savoring the pleasure
of every relationship
every experience
and every nuance of life?

When we live as the Soul does
we realize there is nothing to heal
the earth doesn’t need our healing
humanity doesn’t need our healing
we don’t need healing

All that’s needed is
a change in our perspective
to see as the Soul sees
to experience as the Soul experiences
and to live as the Soul lives
for the pure Love of Life.

BEing In Love

Do you remember how you felt
when you were first “in love”?

Happy… giddy… passionate
skipping through the day…
never wanting to be apart…
lifting each other UP…
knowing you can fly.

Be present with this feeling
within your Self
in every moment
totally in LOVE with YOU!!!

Commitment to Love

Commitment to Love
is a moment-to-moment practice
until all those moments string together
and Love becomes our natural way of BEing.

Transformation of Anger

Someone pulled the pin on a grenade of visceral anger
that’s been unconsciously buried deep within me
from a long time ago.

My first reaction was toward the one who incited this anger
the one who tread upon my heart, then turned the other cheek
a story from my past.

As I sat with this anger,
allowing it to bubble and churn
allowing it to effortlessly flow out of me
without allowing it to fester, without the need to process,
I realized I am the one I have been angry with all these years
for taking it all on, for shrinking into unworthiness
for playing the victim, for groveling for acceptance
allowing someone else to control my life
for a few tidbits of superficial love.

In that moment of realization
my raging anger was spontaneously transformed
by a flood of loving compassion
for the part of me who never felt accepted
for she who never felt seen for who she truly is
for the one that was afraid to stand up for herself
for fear of being rejected
for the one who did not recognize herself
as the precious being that she is.

In that moment of consciousness
the grenade of anger exploded into a burst of love
in which I now stand strong as a sovereign being
with my head held high with an open radiant heart.

To the one who unknowingly pulled the pin on my grenade
I surround you in love and compassion
for I know you were lashing out in response
unaware of the pain and anger buried deep within you.

I pray that each one of us is able to consciously awaken
to the love that is always nestled side by side
in compassion for the anger that’s been buried within us
and may we all stand tall with open radiant hearts.

The Freedom of Forgiveness

Forgiveness is the ultimate act of letting go
freeing ourselves from the endless cycles
of judgment, victim-hood, blame, shame, and guilt.

Forgiveness isn’t directed toward another
It’s our own expectations, not someone one else’s,
that set us up for the fall.

Therefore,
Forgiveness is a precious gift to one’s self
because for-giving is the giving forth of Love.
Once we truly love ourselves
all judgment and blame dissolves
and compassion becomes our natural way of life.

Precious Human

My beloved human
do you not realize
how precious you are?

You think your self
unworthy

You think your self
a sinner

You think your self
weak and ailing

You think your self
lacking

You think your self
unloveable

All these things
you think
with your mind

When you go
beyond the mind
beyond thinking

What you will find
is the perfection of
a cherished human.

A precious human
that embodies all the divinity
of love, joy and compassion.

There is nothing
more precious than
being human.
