It Takes an Open Heart

It takes an open heart
to hear what others have to say
when it’s beyond
my present understanding.

It takes an open heart
to hear what others have to say
to grow and expand beyond
the limitations of a closed mind.

It takes an open heart
to hear what others have to say
without judgment and the need
to sway them to my beliefs.

It takes an open heart
to hear what others have to say
from a place of compassion
honoring each unique soul path.

It takes an open heart
to hear what others have to say
to create a thriving community
with the diversity shared by all.

It takes an open heart
to expand our consciousness
personally and collectively
as creators of Heaven on Earth.

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!!!

Respect

Respect does not require me
to abide by your rules
or defer to your teachings.

Respect honors who you are
on your own Soul path
as a Sovereign being.

Respect allows me
to hear with an open mind
and react with an open heart.

Respect is only possible
when I harbor no judgment
against myself or others.

It is only when I respect my self
that I am able to respect others
herein lie my Sovereignty and Divinity.

Star Families

Your skies are streaming
with what your mind interprets as space ships.

In reality, they are “Soul Groups”,
your Star families,
who are able to come in this closely
because your Love
has raised the vibration high enough
to accommodate them on planet earth.

Go beyond your mind and meet them with open arms,
for they await you with celebration and songs of Joy.

Love Incarnate

Your Divine Self
has always loved you.
As you opened yourself
to allow that Love to trickle in,
your human self
began to fall in love
with your humanness.

And thus . . .
you are now in the throws
of a passionate love affair,
with the realization that
you have always been
and always will be
Love incarnate.

In Search of Love

How much of my life have I spent
vying for your love?
I changed my appearance
I changed my actions
I even changed how I felt,
always unsure
if you loved me.

But how could you love me
when you didn’t even know me
because I never knew myself
as I shape-shifted
like a crazy chameleon
in response to you
in response to the world around me.

I finally realized
your love was never the issue
for it was my love of self
I was in search of;
and now that I know who I Am
it matters not
if you love me or not.

For I am deeply enthralled
in a joyful passionate love affair
with my Divine Self
who lives within me
who is always here for me
who has always known
all of Who I Am.

Trust the Soul

The soul knows Love
in a way the human does not
the soul is always full
whereas the human in never satiated
constantly hungry for more.

You are in a human body
to embody Divine Love
to realize the sultry intimacies
and savor all the flavors
that only the soul can provide.

There will always be
new playgrounds and
infinite opportunities to explore
as the human continues
to expand in divine Love.

The soul will never lead you astray
at times it will take you by the hand
and lead you into the fray
intent on teaching you to open your heart
and accept everything that presents itself
as an opportunity to Love.

Trust the soul
Trust Love.

Smitten

Smitten is the word
I awoke with this morning
smitten with the Love affair
that’s blossoming with my Self.

Enamored by the Love
that’s always present
ever flowing
never judging.

Infatuated with the Joy
that bubbles up from within
for no reason
other than I exist.

Enchanted by the Magic
that playfully
continues to awaken
new aspects of me.

Besotted with the flow
of everyday life
as I allow it
to have its way with me.

No longer caught up in the old adages
of a human style love affair
addled with requirements
and unrequited expectations.

Back in the arms of the Divine
sweet gentle embraced and content
crazy mad in Love with my Self
smitten in the knowing of Who I Am.

Being in the Present Moment

By being in the present moment
I see you as you are are,
pure and simple
free of the past
no worries about the future.


By being in the present moment
you see me as I am,
pure and simple,
free of the past,
no worries about the future.

Being in the present moment
allows love to flow freely
opens doors of compassion
and initiates intimacy.

Being in the present moment
breaks the old bondage
freeing our relationships,
all relationships,
to BE fresh and newly born
in every moment.
