Being a love warrior is standing in support of wellness in our homes, our communities, our world. A warrior shifts percepttions by sharing the truth. A warrior supports us in growth, delivers necessary information, speaks with justice for those who need support and always remains in service. It is remembering we are the creator and the created born to heal that which goes off track. It is the truth that we are here to be in service to each other, to lover our neighbors and to care for the welfare of all those in need, it is to be kinder and to act with courage and love.
There’s some deep mofo stuff happening in the world. We are at a point where half the planet is overweight and the other half are starving. Where you can’t shake a stick without someone going off the anxiety spectrum of fear and defensiveness. A few things I know for sure. There are more people who are kind
and loving than there are people who are filled with hate. There are more ideas to protect the planet than there are people commited to destroying it. There is a shift at play in consciousness, we are on the cusp of a widespread
transformation in our reality into something else. We are presented with a choice in each moment, whether we are going to choose love or choose to stay asleep. Whether we are going to take loving compassionate action or stay silent and inactive. Whether we are going to be numb to the necessary intentions of healing or we are to become an active peace warrior and let love do its thing.
Take a loving action today and see how it feels. Here’s a little Mels Love Land talk on being a love warrior and shifting your perspective on Soundcloud.
My nephew would bust into every room he entered and say “I have a great idea.” Believe me, not all of his ideas were great.
I applaud his verve and I appreciate and celebrate him, he was born that way and was given the gifts of compassion and empathy and balance to go along with his idea full mind. Thoughts become form. The ends are inherent in the means. You find what you are looking for. Everyone is here for a reason. Each relationship, action, creates an equal and opposite re-action.
Transformation is underway. We are learning the ways of a Trump less world as he showcases all of the people, ideas, energies, systems that are old minded, not of the people and have no concept of joy and love being at the center of all our well being. Fear and loathing, hate and hypocrisy are being revealed for deeper holding, more love and we are experiencing a release into what is possible.
New spaces, where open hearted grace leads the way, where you don’t know everything, where ideas are the soldiers of new joy systems. Where we do not need more, so you have less. Wake into a new now where you can experience yourself, your life, your love, knowing you are powerful beyond measure.
It is a wonderful world, filled with wonderful people and when we meet our fears with an open heart. When we hold space beyond the tyranny and the bombasticness where each of us has the privilege of waking up to what they have been asleep to justice and kindness and love remain. What action are you called to do.
You can imagine someone who has succeeded in building, creating, one kind of business by projecting an image, whose personality has yielded results independent of being of service to anyone other than himself, whose every thought was catered to, who no one said “No” to saying — ‘Hey, the two party system has created alot of poop sandwiches. I could do a better job than those boobs.’ I’ know how to build things. I could build something better than what is going on. I could save the day.’ A person so caught up in his own magnan-ignoramousness that he related sitting in his gold lilted tower yelling back at Fox News claimed as experience that He knows what to do. While it is understandable. It is unacceptable.
Right now. We are given a great opportunity…. To Experience the world without a Trump. Without a greed driven, money centered, patriarchal view of things through a lens of fear.
The blessing of his unmagnanimous life, is the realization without it and him and the thinking that created it and him. The world is really a wonderful place. It really is a wonderful world.
There is something in the air and all of us are being called to help fix what is broken. Yes, we have all contributed to the mess we see. Yes we can all do better than we are doing. There is no doubt a shift is occurring, people are waking up and we are in our connectedness arriving at the mountaintop for deepening our collective heart and stepping forward with a healed world.
We are witnessing the fall of fear. Fear is up to be loved, understood and its oppressive energies released. Every story, every major newscast is showcasing it.
It is not the midnight of our discontent It is our eleventh hour of grace where we change course and establish a world where enough is enough. Where we don’t need more so someone has less. Where we think about the whole in balance, without grabbing unnecessarily because we can. Where we see the illusions for what they are, where we stand together sharing our gifts and celebrating each other. Where we are kinder to each other than we were the day before, where love is brought to every situation and we allow a gentleness into the process of this new world we are entering together.
Where we create towers and walls and avoid transformation of our fear monsters we remain stuck in an old paradigm. Release all of it today. Gentle both, the old world and the new. Allow a grace to enter the conversation and allow actions to be loving and do not buy into someone’s blustering. Let the winds of change bring you to the center of your own inner power and light and stand up, take action, be love in a new way, today and everyday.
Lots of Love for the actions that lie ahead….
Love of our streets
Love of our neighbors
Love of our fellow citizens
Love of our neighbor countries’
Love of our business partners
Love of our dry cleaners
Love of our earth mates.
Mels Love Land has been a lot of things over the past five years, an annual #Next100 days of love, these #MiniMag moments of loving activism and soon to be a doc. It is cool to see the shifts in perception from fear to love. A simple question, ‘What if all of our thoughts were loving. If we didn’t blame, shame, judge and remained unattached to the outcome of sharing our gifts and has lead to many conversations and insights. We hope to continue to stay curious and to discover the grace of love in deep presence to all that is.
As you allow a wave of love to flow, how would your life be different? How would your world be changed? What shift in perception would take place? How would your day unfold? How would your relationships grow? What miracles would fall open before you like so many blessings from out of the blue?
Whatever seems complication remember Love is simple. Live in the mystery. Join in Love activism. Remember always. “It has not yet appeared what it to be” Enjoy your curiosity Bring love to your fear and watch the beauty of the universe unfold. Watch miracles spring forward out of the blue and stay present to being in service.
Maybe today is the day to find out.
TO TEACH IS TO DEMONSTRATE
When Love and Fearlessness meet you have the opportunity to bare witness to the revolution of your heart. The timeless intersection between these two allows as Socrates said for “the outer and inner man to be as one” striking your unique and perfect note. Setting rights the world and its illusions.
In this space of pure love in the absence of fear is the vibrational signature of our human destiny where our perfect tone vibrates in harmony with our being and the entire universe rejoices animating the universal heavenly symphony, this sound of our celestial DNA to move as Wordsworth said “in one society” in service to our deepest most authentic self we understand and embody the wholeness pattern of the universe. This note makes manifest the destiny of your existence enabling you to be in concert with society as a whole.
May healing and light and joy flow through your thoughts in the days and weeks ahead allowing inspiration to rise from the depth of our heart leading the way to the inspiration of Love as the central intelligence source of true wisdom.
Make love and kindness be a part of your everyday miraculous life.
IN EVERY BREATH
WE GET THE OPPORTUNITY
INTO THE SOUL
TO ALL WE MEET
MAKING OUR CORNER
OF THE WORLD
A BETTER PLACE.
Over the past five years Mel has allowed love to lead the way, expanding the experience of love as a way of life. Along the way others have joined the love movement and offered up their gifts. It is with great honor we offer up this loving effort for sharing. KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR A SCREENING OF MELS LOVE LAND OR REQUEST ONE NOW.

Today we celebrate what the world we wish to see.
I want a world of peace and a world of love.
I want a world where we are not stuck in an illusion based on fear.
I want a world of mercy and compassion and gratitude.
I want a world where we understand the healed notion of oneness, where there is not separation, where we embrace each others gifts and celebrate our differences. Where we get off the broadcast and commune with our inner light into the power and movement of all that is. What is your vision for the world?
Just read this deeply wonderful poem by Andrea Gibson — enjoy, allow it to beat through you and see what loving action calls your name.
When two violins are placed in a room if a chord on one violin is struck
the other violin will sound the note
If this is your definition of hope
This is for you
The ones who know how powerful we are
Who know we can sound the music in the people around us
simply by playing our own strings
for the ones who sing life into broken wings
open their chests and offer their breath
as wind on a still day when nothing seems to be moving
Spare those intent on proving god is dead
For you when your fingers are red
from clutching your heart
so it will beat faster
For the time you mastered the art of giving yourself for the sake of someone else
For the ones who have felt what it is to crush the lies
and lift truth so high the steeples bow to the sky
This is for you
This is also for the people who wake early to watch flowers bloom
Who notice the moon at noon on a day when the world
has slapped them in the face with its lack of light
For the mothers who feed their children first
and thirst for nothing when they’re full
This is for women
And for the men who taught me only women bleed with the moon
but there are men who cry when women bleed
men who bleed from women’s wounds
and this is for that moon
on the nights she seems hung by a noose
For the people who cut her loose
and for the people still waiting for the rope to burn
about to learn they have scissors in their hands
This is for the man who showed me
the hardest thing about having nothing
is having nothing to give
Who said the only reason to live is to give ourselves away
So this is for the day we’ll quit or jobs and work for something real
We’ll feel for sunshine in the shadows
look for sunrays in the shade
This is for the people who rattle the cage that slave wage built
and for the ones who didn’t know the filth until tonight
But right now are beginning songs that sound something like
people turning their porch lights on and calling the homeless back home
This is for all the shit we own
and for the day we’ll learn how much we have
when we learn to give that shit away
This is for doubt becoming faith
For falling from grace and climbing back up
For trading our silver platters for something that matters
like the gold that shines from our hands when we hold each other
This is for the grandmother who walked a thousand miles on broken glass
to find that single patch of grass to plant a family tree
where the fruit would grow to laugh
For the ones who know the math of war
has always been subtraction
so they live like an action of addition
For you when you give like every star is wishing on you
and for the people still wishing on stars
this is for you too
This is for the times you went through hell so someone else wouldn’t have to
For the time you taught a 14 year old girl she was powerful
This is for the time you taught a 14 year old boy he was beautiful
For the radical anarchist asking a republican to dance
cause what’s the chance of everyone moving from right to left
if the only moves they see are NBC and CBS
This is for the no becoming yes
For scars becoming breath
For saying I love you to people who will never say it to us
For scraping away the rust and remembering how to shine
For the dime you gave away when you didn’t have a penny
For the many beautiful things we do
For every song we’ve ever sung
For refusing to believe in miracles
because miracles are the impossible coming true
and everything is possible
This is for the possibility that guides us
and for the possibilities still waiting to sing
and spread their wings inside us
‘Cause tonight saturn is on his knees
proposing with all of his ten thousand rings
that whatever song we’ve been singing we sing even more
The world needs us right now more than it ever has before
Pull all your strings
Play every chord
If you’re writing letters to the prisoners
start tearing down the bars
If you’re handing our flashlights in the dark
start handing our stars
Never go a second hushing the percussion of your heart
Play like you know the clouds have left too many people cold and broken
and you’re their last chance for sun
Play like there’s no time for hoping brighter days will come
Play like the apocalypse is only 4…3…2
but you have a drum in your chest that could save us
You have a song like a breath that could raise us
like the sunrise into a dark sky that cries to be blue
Play like you know we won’t survive if you don’t
but we will if you do
Play like saturn is on his knees
proposing with all of his ten thousand rings
that we give every single breath
this is for saying–yes
This is for saying yes

Been thinking a lot about personal responsibility, as the news trumpets on, and life marches forward and as change is constant and the ways we could complain endless.
Prayers are our communications with God. Prayers are the medium of miracles.
Prayers bring us into the whispers of our hearts purpose. Prayers center us in our daily interactions with the world at large bringing us into close proximity with the invisible and visible worlds constantly in flow and at play in the infinity loops of our existance.
One of my favorite is the soul filled prayers to the holy spirit, that intercesionary force that connects the spirit and the earthly realms.
Here’s one prayer for engagement with this connective bridge….
Breathe into me, Holy Spirit, that my thoughts may all be holy. Move in me, Holy Spirit, that my work, too, may be holy. Attract my heart, Holy Spirit, that I may love only what is holy. Strengthen me, Holy Spirit, that I may defend all that is holy. Protect me, Holy Spirit, that I may always be holy.
So many wonderful readings online, here’s some wonderful video words and inspiration…
As a special return to prayer bonus enjoy this reading from Julie Sopetran’s message in colors…
Today is aday to remember the past. To enjoy a throwback Thursday in all its glory.
Enjoy – Getting Bare. …
The soul knows where it belongs. Not some of the time. All of the time. When you strip everything away and get bare this fact sings.
In the deep interspection of belonging and faith and acceptance and honesty I found the intersection of my soul and my thinking unhampered by what I knew. Beyond feelings unhinged the truth. No matter how many lies others tell us or how many lies we tell ourselves. Truth is truth. In listening with an open heart, hearing is guaranteed.
It didn’t matter what path I chose, what form the exploration, just that I removed the blocks and kept myself open. My life to date, the pain and wounds, joy, laughter and love I used as a roadmap of how to find my way back to the space that knows. That lives in eternal joy and peace. That flourishes in a warm embrace.
There was no other way for me to find myself, return to my authentic self. Believe me. You’ve read the book. Heard my thoughts. I had tried every other way. You may relate to the example, you may find yourself in a similar place… Blown so far from home you don’t even know how to get back like Dorothy at the end of The Wizard of Oz when she says “Why didn’t you tell me all I needed to do was click my heals three times to go home?” to which the Good Witch responds “You never would have believed me.” I remember thinking as a kid, “Mother F-er … Would have been good to know.”
How much easier would life be if we skipped the drama and those harried flying rabid attack monkeys?
You can choose to see things differently and take any light bulb moment of truth to change the story you’ve created. To get help. To share yourself. To move from fear to love, from insecure to joyful. You can choose in this moment to open yourself up to the possibility of being happier today than you were yesterday, to be the change necessary so you are delivered from whatever your current circumstance into peace and Love. Simply by choosing to be awake.
The hardest thing in all of this was for me to forgive myself and not be ashamed of how long I had forgotten who I was. As I write this, forgiveness has been understood and accepted and feels like it made the “journey (without distance) from my head to my heart.” Notice I said without distance, not without resistance. I get that it might be upsetting to remember that the universe has it covered. I get that people may trigger me. Now I know I don’t need to run around and around the yellow brick road. No matter what comes my way I will always have access to my center, (and when I need help to remember — I have it) The one constant in all of it that remains. The sole survivor. Me.
In talking to reporters when Walt Disney opened Disney Land he shared, “It’s something that will never be finished, something I can keep developing and adding to. It will get more beautiful every year. And it will get better as I find out what the public likes.” The happiest place on earth was built on the spirit of work in progress where adventure unfolded and imagination flourished and the never ending process was cherished. I have faith in the beautiful process like I have faith in the seasons and the suns fall and rise.
So many things revealed themselves when I was willing to open my eyes and see. Truly see. I thought oneness was something you visited and had to return to the hell of separation. Now I know the prison and separation of the past is not where I live. I killed my masked Mel to reveal my truth. I stand today adrift no more. Rooted into who and how I am. Born again in each moment. I remember the truth. True love is a natural state of being. A state wholly free. A meeting place of creation.
I live that truth of myself.
With my friends
With my family
With my work
With my being
A life fully known
Free to frolic
Free to be
Instant. By. Instant.
Into my heart space
In which spirit is at home
A home that is deeper
Than the one I see with my naked eye
Shifting to those energies of the soul
To where the still small voice echoes…
“Be quiet and listen.”
Release the past. The future has no business today and be willing to have the truth, your truth Lovingly blossom.
You owe it to yourself. You owe it to the planet.
Live in the light of all that you can be and remember…
The beauty of a lifetime
The beingness of Love ever creating and expanding possibility
Leads the way
Into that water of your brilliant being
In Love’s fullest peace
In a moment of grace
You can give yourself
By staying open.
Knowing the oneness of now brought me exactly where I needed to be.
I had fallen in love. With myself. All of me.
Melting through my being in the light of Love.
I moved in.
When you can Love everyone (including yourself) there is nothing that is not possible.
May love surround you and work through you. May you offer your heart to the service of love. May you find peace today and everyday. May blessings and peace flourish in your presence.

6th Annual Mels Love Land #Next100 Day 11 on Soundcloud.
A short love inspired meeting this morning remindsed me of these words spoken into the light of a new tomorrow my Martin Luther King, Jr.
“I love you. I would rather die than hate you.” Truth. Love. Now.
It was a surprise to be met in this way this morning but it was a great and powerful reminder to honor a man whose belief in the principles of Love in action as a social force of transformation ignited a movement that exploded heinous injustices across our land that reverberate through our hearts today.
Many people are standing up for love right now and I am grateful for all of you….
Enjoy this moment of remembering….

May love surround you and work through you.
Fuller words from Martin Luther King, Jr.
I say to you, “I love you. I would rather die than hate you. And I’m foolish enough to believe that through the power of this love somewhere, men of the most recalcitrant bent will be transformed. And then we will be in God’s kingdom. We will be able to matriculate into the university of eternal life because we had the power to love our enemies, to bless those persons that cursed us, to even decide to be good to those persons who hated us, and we even prayed for those persons who despitefully used us. Oh God, help us in our lives and in all of our attitudes, to work out this controlling force of love, this controlling power that can solve every problem that we confront in all areas. Oh, we talk about politics; we talk about the problems facing our atomic civilization. Grant that all men will come together and discover that as we solve the crisis and solve these problems “the international problems, the problems of atomic energy, the problems of nuclear energy, and yes, even the race problem” let us join together in a great fellowship of love and bow down at the feet of Jesus. Give us this strong determination.”
We are co-creating all the time. We are practicing creation with each thought we think and all the words we utter. Words have meaning. We are responsible for what we say. Consequences are the outcome of our statements.
Creation is the sum of all loving thoughts, in number infinite, and everywhere without limit. Only love creates, and only like itself. There was no time when all that it created was not there. Nor will there be a time when anything that it created suffers any loss. Forever and forever are God’s Thoughts exactly as they were and as they are, unchanged through time and after time is done.
Words from another space came to me in my co-creating with spirit. Those words are at the heart of Mels Love Land #Next100.
Simple and straight forward…
I will experience what is.
I will appreciate what they do.
God’s Thoughts are given all the power that their own Creator has. For He would add to love by its extension. Thus His Son shares in creation, and must therefore share in power to create. What God has willed to be forever One will still be One when time is over; and will not be changed throughout the course of time, remaining as it was before the thought of time began.
Creation is the opposite of all illusions, for creation is the truth. Creation is the holy Son of God, for in creation is His Will complete in every aspect, making every part container of the whole. Its oneness is forever guaranteed inviolate; forever held within His holy Will, beyond all possibility of harm, of separation, imperfection and of any spot upon its sinlessness.
We are creation; we the Sons of God. We seem to be discrete, and unaware of our eternal unity with Him. Yet back of all our doubts, past all our fears, there still is certainty. For love remains with all its Thoughts, its sureness being theirs. God’s memory is in our holy minds, which know their oneness and their unity with their Creator. Let our function be only to let this memory return, only to let God’s Will be done on earth, only to be restored to sanity, and to be but as God created us.
With infinite love and gratitude.
