Flight of the Soul

Wage Peace

posted by Melanie Lutz

“Teach only love for that is what you are.”

As we approach the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War it can be a time for reflection and resetting.

We honor those among us that carry the badge of military action past and present in defense of Freedom because greatness lies in all our hearts to be a warrior of peace and service.

Peace comes from knowing peace.

In the beginning of any movement be it war or peace, there are tiny agreements to take action toward the end goal.  Tiny agreements of the heart and the mind and the spirit.  Tiny agreements that open the doors for growth and possibility or death and destruction.  Tiny agreements that set the stage for all that follows.

Let your heart take you somewhere you never imagined.  Let being in service be your guide.

Love comes from being Loving.

The Vietnam War happened as war happens every day uncovering the brightest and the darkest parts of the human heart.

We have to start somewhere to ignite change and bring forward the space of our hearts that knows peace, to shelter, educate, inspire and develop an interconnected community of man in service to the best in each other.  Offering a hand so we can move together in one society, not separate societies of inequity.

Love is meant to  be in action bringing peace on earth.  

Each of us is in the perfect position to achieve the sort of inner peace heretofore unheard of.  Creating lasting sustainable peace on earth.  It is time to make a shift and there are No Limits in what is possible when we live in a PRACTICE OF HUMANITY

For this month in remembrance of the Vietnam War and all whose lives where touched in its aftermath an affirmation of Inner Peace…

Peace comes from knowing peace
Love comes from being Loving
Gifts come from wholly giving

In this light
Peace becomes
My deepest brilliance 
Glowing brightly 

Step not timidly on the path
Flow forward 
Fully
Alive
And
Alight

Peace is mine
My calling card
Falling with me
Radiating through me

Blossoming all around me
Witnessing what I have done
Peace realized

I wake 
Hearing the bluebirds of the Angels 
Joining in the dance of Love
Free

I own my state of peace

In grace

Return to Prayer – Every Day in Every Way

posted by Melanie Lutz

Prayer is the Medium of miracles.  Don’t get to the point where you need to say ‘all we can do is pray.’  Remain prayerful each day, find a way to introduce the magic and miracle of this conversation with God.

An invocation of spirit by Paulo Coelho.

Lord, protect our doubts, because Doubt is a way of praying. It is Doubt that makes us grow because it forces us to look fearlessly at the many answers that exist to one question. And in order for this to be possible…

Lord, protect our decisions, because making Decisions is a way of praying. Give us the courage, after our doubts, to be able to choose between one road and another. May our YES always be a YES, and NO always be a NO. Once we have chosen our road, may we never look back nor allow our soul to be eaten away by remorse. And in order for this to be possible…

Lord, protect our actions, because Action is a way of praying. May our daily bread be the result of the very best that we carry within us. May we, through work and Action, share a little of the love we receive. And in order for this to be possible…

Lord, protect our dreams, because to Dream is a way of praying. Make sure that, regardless of our age or our circumstances, we are capable of keeping alight in our heart the sacred flame of hope and perseverance. And in order for this to be possible…

Lord, give us enthusiasm, because Enthusiasm is a way of praying. It is what binds us to the Heavens and to Earth, to grown-ups, and to children; it is what tells us that our desires are important and deserve our best efforts. It is Enthusiasm that reaffirms to us that everything is possible, as long as we are totally committed to what we are doing. And in order for this to be possible…

Lord, protect us, because Life is the only way we have of making manifest Your miracle. May the earth continue to transform seeds into wheat, may we continue to transmute wheat into bread. And this is only possible if we have Love; therefore, do not leave us in solitude. Always give us Your company, and the company of men and women who have doubts, who act and dream and feel enthusiasm, and who live each day as if it were totally dedicated to Your glory.

Amen.

Sounds of the Ocean to Relax and Read By

Nothing better than enjoying a great read at the beach.  So many fabulous works to enjoy.  

A new work of mine to be released next year, Vanessa by the Sea, follows the journey of “walking into the water” of true being ness in equanimity with the soul in this spiritual exploration of waking up to the deeper conversation of life sharing the working relationship between a client and her therapist to uncover the truth of that message using the road by the ocean as a metaphor for the gateway to the unconscious inspiring life’s biggest lesson in unconditional love and friendship.

Enjoy an excerpt from the work…

As she talks my outer self moves aside, the gentleness of her speech cadence I have grown to love, eases the shape shifting inner lens of spirit into the truth, I am experiencing the self love born of so many hours sitting with whatever illusory mania of the super and unsuper revealed soaking through any word.  I see the artistry, the work transformed into the craft of Psychotherapy that has taken flight through a repetition of faith in love to see.

Like so much fabric in the tapestry of our time together whatever roads have been traveled, however many past lives had led her to the couch I sit on.  Nothing mattered,

The tide beating heart of the earth ever whispering Trust, Faith, Love. in the background as the Ocean whispers just outside her office door.

“Compassion.”

“I don’t want to be less than who I am anymore.  I don’t want to shrink in the world and diminish my expression.”

“You are here to complete your assignment.”

“We are given certain keys in our lifetime.  Keys that unlock doors, keys that turn on machines, keys that open hearts.  These keys are entering and disappearing from consciousness every day.  How we choose to use these keys providing entre to extraordinary love and unlimited possibility.”

Vanessa’s voice melding in the buttery sounds of the ocean’s harmony.

“I have watched you choose with so much love for your self and your way of being.”

I nod again.

“Keys of light.”

“Helping you open more and more doors.”

Allow Forgiveness to Fly in Every Way

posted by Melanie Lutz

love knows no boundaries

It has been quite something to stand in friendship and love and share so much material in community and witness the intuition of possibility.

“What hatred claimed is given up to love, and freedom lights up every living thing and lifts it into Heaven, where the lights grow ever brighter as each one comes home. The incomplete is made complete again, and Heaven’s joy has been increased because what is its own has been restored to it. The bloodied earth is cleansed, and the insane have shed their garments of insanity to join Them on the ground whereon you stand.  Heaven is grateful for this gift of what has been withheld so long. For They have come to gather in Their Own.

What has been locked is opened; what was held apart from light is given up, that light may shine on it and leave no space nor distance lingering between the light of Heaven and the world.

The holiest of all the spots on earth is where an ancient hatred has become a present love.

What hatred has released to love becomes the brightest light in Heaven’s radiance. And all the lights in Heaven brighter grow, in gratitude for what has been restored.

Around you angels hover lovingly, to keep away all darkened thoughts of sin, and keep the light where it has entered in. Your footprints lighten up the world, for where you walk forgiveness gladly goes with you. No one on earth but offers thanks to one who has restored his home, and sheltered him from bitter winter and the freezing cold.”

Remembering the past, honoring our history in celebration of all of it to be released in the present moment of connected loving community to release the future to be something entirely free and spectacular and different from what has come before.
In unhinging what has come before in the present moment in a circle of sharing and love so much has been born.

“Welcome at last. Where stood a cross stands now the risen Christ, and ancient scars are healed within His sight. An ancient miracle has come to bless and to replace an ancient enmity that came to kill. In gentle gratitude returned to love.”

Take whatever broken wing you feel you might be favoring and learn to fly.

Which artists among us live and breath these truths.  We stands forward embodying the challenges of the spirit to freedom.

Theologian James Dunn spoke of –

the humility that befits all humanity

the hurt that afflicts every heart
and the hope that comes with community

There is strength in the company of others

from “we the people” to “we shall overcome.”

to quote Bill Moyers –

“There is much to repair. If we have the will for it.”

No matter what divides us… We must remain united in the highest order of freedom. With respect for our differences and find our common humanity. Let’s make practicing humanity a way of life. Not because it’s easy. But because it’s the right thing to do.

We owe it to those who come after us not to fall asleep, not to forget who we are, and to take advantage of the deeper conversation. Today, and every day.

Love’s Transformative Power Deliciously Simple Summer

posted by Melanie Lutz

As we enter summer it is that time to throw open the windows, open our hearts to the longer cycles of the sun AMP EXPERIENCE Happiness Tea Melanie Lutzand enter that deliciously simple time when the soul blows wide open.

Take today and the gentle joy of this moment to let the past fall away in the wash of the summer sun.

ACIM has a great line that feels right… “you can have a grievance or a miracle, you can not have both.”  This speaks directly to the truth, you can hold one thought.  Make it be loving and that will lead you through the illusions that create extended suffering beyond the moment of incident.

“If Jesus had yelled from the cross, ‘I hate all you guys,’ it would have been a completely different story. There would have been no resurrection. What created the space for his triumph was his defenselessness, his holding to love despite what others were doing to him. The body can be destroyed, but truth cannot be. Truth will always reassert itself, given a symbolic three days. Three days represents the time it takes between the crucifixion and the resurrection, between an open-hearted response to hurt and the experience of rebirth that will always follow.”

— Excerpted from A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of A Course in Miracles

Love always remains the answer, no matter what the circumstances.

Dearest,

All is love in your presence, all is held and whole and perfect. I Love you beyond the beyond, into the depths of truth and joy into heaven on earth.

Welcome to the presence of Love.

Congratulations on your commitment, on your integrity of self and you full knowing of the experience of love.

The power of God and all His Love, without limit, will support you as you seek only your place in the plan of Atonement arising from His Love. ACIM

http://www.acimmentor.com/macimchapter20.html

You still see with the body’s eyes and all that they can report is separation. But you have asked for and received another Vision. You share the Holy Spirit’s Purpose now so you also share the Holy Spirit’s Vision. The Holy Spirit’s ability to extend Love everywhere is yours now, too. The Holy Spirit does not see separate selves; only One Holy Self everywhere. The Holy Spirit does not see fear; only Innocence shining Peacefully on Everything that the Holy Spirit loves.

Look with a different Vision on your Holy relationship. You have forgiven your Christ Mind your illusions and yet your Christ Mind cannot use your Love while you do not see It. You cannot use What your Christ Mind gives to you unless you choose to use Itwith your Christ Mind. The Holy Spirit’s Vision is not an idle gift to be played with for a while and then tossed aside. Listen carefully: Don’t think that the Holy Spirit’s Vision is an illusion, a careless thought to play with, or a toy to pick up from time to time. If you do, this is what It will be to you.

You have the Vision now to look past illusions. It has been given to you to no longer see fear, separation, or obstacles to Peace. Your fear of God is nothing to you who can now see your Christ Mind in place of the personal mind’s projections on the other. With your Christ Mind in your awareness your Vision has become the greatest Power for the undoing of illusions that God can give. What God gives to the Holy Spirit you receive. Your Christ Mind looks to you for release because you have asked for the strength to look on the final obstacle of your fear of God and to no longer see fear or death.

The Home that you have chosen is beyond the veil of your fear of God. It is ready to receive you. You will not see It with the body’s eyes, yet all that you need to see It you already have. Your Home has called to you since time began and you have never failed to hear It. You just did not know how or where to look for It. Now you know. In you, God lies ready to be unveiled and your awareness of God is ready to be freed from the terror that has kept God hidden from you. There is no fear in Love. Easter is a symbol that Christ was never crucified. Lift your eyes with your Christ Mind, not in fear but in faith that only God is Real. There is no fear in your Christ Mind because your Christ Mind’s Vision does not see illusions, only a path to Heaven, your Quiet, Gentle, Peaceful Home.

The Holiness that you extend in your perception of the other in your Holy relationship will lead you Home. The Innocence that you extend will light your way, guiding you and protecting you, shining from the Holiness that you extend in your forgiving your illusions. Let your Perception of the other in your Holy relationship be your Savior from illusions as you look on them with the new Vision that looks on Love and that brings you Joy. With your Christ Mind you go beyond the veil of fear. The Holiness that leads you is within you, just as your Home is within you. You will find What God means for you to find.

This is the way to Heaven and the Peace of Easter. Join your Christ Mind in the glad awareness that you have risen from the personal self’s past to awaken to the present. Now you are Free and Limitless in your Oneness with All that is within you. Now is your Innocence untouched by guilt and perfectly protected from fear and the belief that separation from God is real. Your extension of Love to your relationship saves you from pain and fear, and your Christ Mind, Which you see in it, is the Strength that guides you through and beyond fear. Walk in your Holy relationship rejoicing because your Christ Mind has come into your awareness to save you from your illusions and to lead you Home.

The Christ that you see in your Holy relationship is your Savior and your mind is released from crucifixion through your Vision of Christ in all that you perceive. In your pain your Christ Mind will not leave you, who are One with Christ. With your Christ Mind you will gladly walk the way of Innocence as you behold the open door of Heaven and recognize the Home that has called to you. Joyously extend your Freedom and your Strength to lead you Home and to replace the world in your mind. Extend your Holiness, Where Strength and Freedom are, to receive the awareness that leads you Home. Christ is in you and in your mind’s perception and your Christ Mind will lead you past fear to Love.

 

Count down to Independence Day!

A Father’s Gift. Prayer for New Love and Dreams Fulfilled. The Truest Love Story the Return to the Heart of the Matter.

posted by Melanie Lutz

For Father’s Day last year, SynergyTV Network, approached me about a crowd sourcing project for one of the tiny books of poems and affirmations I wrote called I am a Great Man.  Not even understanding the full nature of what crowd sourcing was I agreed to participate, the call went out for photographs of the great men in our lives that deserved celebration, that by their presence in our lives fill our days with love.

Because the turnaround time for the project was so quick a few responses and shared photographs came in after the edit.  Each submission made was a gift to the Team working on this project as it shared the connection we all have to our loved ones and the messages they deliver and the ways in which we long for the connection, free and clear, that lives and breathes in our memories as we achieve new pathways to open loving hearts in our present.

For this Father’s Day wanted to share one of the submissions that touched me deeply, because it contained a wish and a prayer for something I hear expressed in a lot of the sharing circles I encounter as a writer, lecturer, facilitator and teacher of how love liberates.

Her wish…

“Please bring me a love that honors who I am, that celebrates my uniqueness, that gets the reason why I am here.”

This resonated for me as the cry of the heart for that soul mate to meet our hearts, allowing the universe to do what it does in delivering that other, that person who fulfills the deepest truth of love’s unconditional power.  It isn’t “complete me,” it is, “allow our open sacred connection to work for the highest good of each, in our fullest expression of who we are, living from the deepest truth of love as interdependence in mutuality and understanding, compassion and always grace, for the other and for ourselves.”

The first prayer to ignite possibilities is “bring me a love that is worthy of my being beyond category.  Allow me to experience the grace and flight of true love born of the highest expression of my most excellent self of all that I am and all that I hold dear, allow me to love all the ways I am and let that resting place become the birthplace of my truest love, my dearest beloved, the most loving holiest soulful expression of paring in oneness with my beloved.  Remove the obstacles that might hamper my seeing, allow me to enact the journey of flight into all that will be, allow me to release into the fullest trusting of my heart to lead me where I need to go, to receive the gifts I am here to receive, whatever happens, allow the dance of destiny to my hearts content to continue allow the waltz to take flight as happiness surrounds our days and be a blessing to all who interact with my union built in love, with love and through love.”

Do not get caught up in the dream, open up to the reality of love and all its wondrous powers to heal, expand, grow and cherish each and every part of ourselves.

I used to think that I could not go on.  That life was nothing but an awful song

Now I know the meaning of true love, a meeting of the everlasting arms

If I can see it I can do it, If i just believe it then there’s nothing to it.

I believe I can fly.

From Lorelei Shellist in gratitude and recognition of the first Great Man in her life.

Bring me new love in the ways that you know will nourish and support my most loving heart and be a blessing to all who experience our love.  Allow this person to fall gently into my life, with no planning, through guidance lovingly planted to lead us to each other, allow my heart to open beautifully in receiving this gift of ease and excitement and true elegant partnership.  May I be open to effortless ways of revealing this deep soulful relationship that will flourish with each passing moment in ways that will thrill my spirit.

Amen.

Lots of Love.

May all your sweetest dreams come true.  Many blessings.
