Flight of the Soul

From the Bronx to Kansas to Washington to Texas Americans are waking up to their beautiful power to rise up, to help create community and organize for the common wealth. Thank God.

All great speeches share one common thread, the ability to divine the truth creating space for the eternal. The words may change. The times may be different, but, in the stirring of the heart a great speech gives birth to the openness of possibility and in that openness we are given a choice, a choice to be moved by a higher vibrational experience into action leading spirit ever forward with faith and grace extending Love to all souls across the planet.

On July 20th in the heart of Kansas,  Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez stood with Bernie Sandors and Congressional candidate James Thompson and delivered a heart full speech of connection and hope born of action and the deep discipline of showing up. It is not an accident Alexandria stood before the audience of Kansas constituents to deliver these words into the deep river of connection that runs through the heart of Kansas and bends toward love and justice and doing the right thing in community.


Unite for America Kansas Alexandria OcasioMay you be inspired by her words, may you find a way to expand the conversations you are having and show up where love is being discussed with dignity and honor and respect for all.

 

 

 

 


Bernie Saunders is a bridge between the idealism of the original Love Revolution of th 60’s to where we stand in the 21st Century. What the world needs now, as it did then is love. He knew Bobby Kennedy and his vision for the world and the fight it required to complete love’s mission. This quote lives and breathes in what Bernie Saunders speaks of — “Few will have the greatness to bend history itself, but each of us can work to change a small portion of events. It is from numberless diverse acts of courage and belief that human history is shaped. Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.” 

We are finding more and more ways to make connections with love, to weave into our collective uniquely American hearts and find what unites us.

Sarah Silverman’s I Love You America continues to shift hearts and stay on the battlefield. Hulu has renewed it for another season. Marianne Williamson’s constant and caring Love America Tour is opening hearts across the country. We are in an All Systems Love moment. What unites us will always be the way we manifest change.

We are leaning into a new order of the day, change is here, transformation is underway and we need your hearts, we need your gifts, we need you to take kind and loving action in your communities to share your gifts to build bridges for our worlds. We are building bridges. Love is leading the way.

The list for societal wellness is simple, the complexity comes from the systems designed to enable a 20th Century. It is the 21st Century, change is advancing faster than we can process, and we need new systems while we gently utilize what remains in place.

Love is ready to address and re-align in loving systems that work for everyone, that promote the general welfare and establish justice in pure domestic tranquility. One nation under God in Love.

Our Must Have List:

-Clean air, water, soil is a minimum entry to the 21st Century

-Health and wellness care for all currently #MedicareForAll

-Immigration systems that allow natural flows and address the root causes of a military industrial complex.

-Re-prioritized Military spending to create peace filled, harmony in our inter-connected, inter-dependent world.

-Education system that allows for the nourishment and upliftment and work flow of all our Citizens. Community driven, collective policies that foster the genius that lies in all our children.

-Advancing Justice and Reform of our thinking around criminal justice and for profit prisons.

-Money out of politics.

Add your thoughts to the list.

Get involved where you are called. Let’s take loving, kind action in our neighborhoods and communities and watch our worlds become more joy filled.

Love,

Melanie

Mels Love Land Let Love Lead the Way (6)A little bending of time and space on the continuum of kindness in our commmunities. A few questions to take a moment and embody.

How am I showing up to be of service?

How are my actions creating an unbroken chain of loving kindness expanding across the multi verses?

What if your only job was to show up and meaningfully take care to be of service to each other’s happiness?

When did having more so others could have less become so important that we forgot how to be of service and spend our resources acting with love.

Maybe today’s the day you have an answer to the questions.

How have you helped someone today? How have you been kinder? Where did you forget you are your neighbor?

To any question, love always remains the answer.

Love, Mel

Faeries like to see work filled with joy. They like collaboration and connection, they like a play shop where much merriment takes place.

The other night I took a journey incorporating the Celtic Oran Mor “The Great Melody” unceasingly playing since the creation of the multiverses revealing many insights to the other realms. This song of the universe operates as mechanism for giving and receiving divine blessings. May we enjoy ourselves in everything we do supported by all the many available realms.

Spencer Platt:Getty Images Mario Tama Getty ImagesIn this Child is you. He desires to go home so deeply, so unceasingly, His voice cries unto you to let Him rest a while. He does not ask for more than just a few instants of respite; just an interval in which He can return to breathe again the holy air that fills His Father’s house. You are His home as well. He will return. But give Him just a little time to be Himself, within the peace that is His home, resting in silence and in peace and love.

This Child needs your protection. He is far from home. He is so little that He seems so easily shut out, His tiny voice so readily obscured, His call for help almost unheard amid the grating sounds and harsh and rasping noises of the world. Yet does He know that in you still abides His sure protection. You will fail Him not. He will go home, and you along with Him.

This Child is your defenselessness; your strength. He trusts in you. He came because He knew you would not fail. He whispers of His home unceasingly to you. For He would bring you back with Him, that He Himself might stay, and not return again where He does not belong, and where He lives an outcast in a world of alien thoughts. His patience has no limits. He will wait until you hear His gentle Voice within you, calling you to let Him go in peace, along with you, to where He is at home and you with Him.

When you are still an instant, when the world recedes from you, when valueless ideas cease to have value in your restless mind.

Return him home with your love.

Return the grace of him home

Allow the judgement to fall away

Allow forgiveness to flow

Allow the truth to return to love.

Check in with yourself as you find the loving actions your soul desires you make.

Love, Mel

‘Merci, Madame.’ was the tone of waking today as French President Emmanuel Macron honoring the life of Simone Veil, interred in the Pantheon, buried with her husband in a procession from the Shoah foundation that held the memories of the souls murdered by atrocities the worst kind, so horrific, as fallen into a slumber of sorts.

The celebration as remembrance, the words, she fought to embody, I can therefore, I am.

lost to horrors were her parents and her brother in the Nazi camps.

78651 tattooed on her arm when she was imprisoned in what was known as a camp Bergen Belson forever burned into her left arm.

Children often ask ‘What is that?’

What does it mean?

Her answer — a symbol of “untouchable dignity.”

soft tender tones

I owe somebody a gift

it has been received

In the Pantheon of Human History

in spaces close and far

hearts broken

lifted up

weaving light

as the masters foretold.

 

France paid homage on Sunday to Simone Veil, a revered Holocaust survivor who championed human rights. She became only the fifth woman to join the nation’s heroes interred in the Panthéon in Paris.

“France loves Simone Veil and loves her for her struggles,” President Emmanuel Macron said Today.

“We wanted Simone Veil to enter the Pantheon without waiting for generations to pass so that her battles, her dignity and her hope remain a compass in these troubled times.”

The danger is not lest the soul should doubt whether there is any bread, but lest, by a lie, it should persuade itself that it is not hungry. ❤️

Inspire, inform, entertain and deliver deep wisdom by starting something from the eternal loving beat of the heart.

Michael Jackson was a recognized genius of his time who died way to soon, in every way his legacy continues to inspire, inform, entertain and his lyrics delivered deep wisdom, his “wanna be starting Something. Got to be starting something” melody is the heart beat for love activism.

In Mr. Jackson’s spirit, the spirit of  his collaborators and the dream’s he ignited, the space he held for so many today is a reminder to take a look at the man in the mirror and make a change.

I‘m starting with the man in the mirror

I’m asking him to change his ways

And no message could have been any clearer

If you wanna make the world a better place

Take a look at yourself and then make a change

Today is the day to start something loving, to ignite the flame of truth and restore the hearts beat attuning to the sounds of the giving universe.

Next 100 | Day 90 | Start Something Loving

Inspire, inform, entertain and deliver joy, practice deep wisdom and always be starting something loving

With Love Market and Cafe Mels Love Land Melanie LutzFood with Love wrapped in community. When the With Love Market and Cafe opened its doors two years ago it did so with a mission to bring compassion and food justice to an underserved Neighborhood in South LA.

A husband and wife team  with digital marketing experience and huge hearts worked hard from idea to execution to transform the space near the West Adams neighborhood. Their idea was to provide fresh food, delicious meals and community programs served up with love.

 

Every day of the week they are open for business, providing space for the neighborhood to gather and talk about things that matter.

One of my friends works with NADCP | Justice for Vets as Senior Director of Justice for Vets, a division of the National Association of Drug Care Professionals (NADCP) that advocates for Veterans rights, restoring lives and hope in our communities through Drug and Veterans Treatment Courts. She is an inspiration to me and many others who are lucky enough to know her. With a background as a social justice warrior, professional actress, activist and advocate she has a lot of depth, understanding, global communications expertise of communities in crisis, a 360 degree vantage point around every issue and a true spirit of inclusion to bring to her work. Many of her friends and coworkers are inspired by her.

Justice for Vets connects veterans in crisis with Veterans Treatment Courts that save lives, restore families and rebuild communities. The work they do across is the most successful justice innovation in American History.

Justice for Vets | NADCP honored Martin Sheen for his lifetime service to social justice. In his acceptance speech Mr. Sheen shared an Irish story of a man who arrives at the gates of heaven, and he asks to be let in and St. Peter says, “Of course. Show us your scars.” When the man says, “I have no scars.” St. Peter says, “What a pity. Was there nothing worth fighting for?”

One heart with courage is a majority. “Compassion is the most powerful medicine we have” and everyone who works with NADCP and all the communities they impact and work tirelessly for is medicine for the times we find ourselves in.  fighting for our Veterans and justice for all. Everyday in every way Justice for Vets fights for our Veterans in a system to transform and tackle complicated issues with the help of community. The care and work of NADCP is an example of what transformation looks like.

Justice for Vets connects veterans in crisis with Veterans Treatment Courts that save lives, restore families and rebuild communities. The system of support, treatment, mentorship, volunteerism, community integration of all  work they do across is the most successful justice innovation in American History.

In 2016 Congress passed a historic addiction bill in 2016, the Comprehensive Addiction and Recovery Act (CARA) that also authorized funding or Veterans Treatment Courts and Drug Courts. As discussions on how to handle the critical opioid crisis unfold there are talks of a ‘CARA 2.0.’ While our nation suffers under a weight of addiction and how to solve it, NADCP | Justice for Vets quietly and with great courage has a solution that is working to reintegrate, rehabilitate our Vets. Every day they organize, train, advocate and implement solutions that work creating just, healing outcomes in the lives of Veterans across the country.

One thing heard in courtrooms across the country — Veterans Treatment Courts and Drug Courts work and they need our support. Let us all awake. Let us celebrate this momentous achievement and continue to work together, to support organizations that work, to change lives.

Justice for Vets Love Activism

The work for all of us in the 21st Century is activation. We have limitless possibilities with the evolution of our consciousness, into the new spaces of the heart, while, and as, we transition from systems that have grown old and tired, to new systems that recognize all with a love of peace, not a love of guns, a love of nourishing each other, not destroying each other, with a love of educating, of connecting and ultimately bridging a new order for the ages. When Parkland students end their cries from the front lines of the war in our classrooms ‘we will outlive you and fix the systems you allowed to destroy our world.’ You have a choice. restoring and returning each citizen that all of us have ahead of us is to continue to support this important work in our communities and clean up what needs to be cleaned up, to be gentle with our old systems and at the same time increase our capacity to evolve new systems aligned in love to create restorative outcomes, to shift POV’s and find deeper ways to connect to our collective heart. Some efforts will succeed others will not, the tenor of which we fight, we hold space, we join in the conversation and we contribute to the whole will be the story. We hope the story is full of love and kindness and compassion and support for all that needs to be included and returned healed and whole. Remember the lessons of the heart and put love into action today and every day, like the wonderful folks at Justice for Vets.
