“Get ready for a Hurricane!” Giving as Receiving. Loving as Sharing. The Butterfly Effect with Kindness and Courage

posted by Melanie Lutz
“Get ready for a hurricane!”  The butterfly effect – one butterfly flapping its wings can cause a hurricane. Like one single act of kindness encourages other’s to do the same.
“Get a whole lot of butterflies to flap there wings in the direction of kindness and you change the world.”
Link to the video/article on Chris Rosati working to make a difference in his community and how each act of kindness ROARS across the planet.

There is no greater ‪joy than discovering the thrill of the soul in giving as receiving.  Get out there and do something loving in a courageous act of kindness today and everyday and watch your world completely unfold in so many miraculous and loving ways.

The Day that Reminds All of Us Dreams do Come True – OSCAR

posted by Melanie Lutz

Today and everyday is a day to let our souls speak their mission and stretch into the future and develop a practice of vision.

Expand yourself no matter what your circumstance and remember as Rilke wrote to live the question.

WHY AM I HERE?

Beyond the glitz and glamour and the who is wearing what and why, beyond the business, the promotions ($75,000 gift bag – I’m looking at you) and the who wins and loses are the deeply held stories and the lives that are shared with a global audience opening up doors of inspiration and shedding light on what we on the planet need to remember.

“Each of You Who Know The Joy of Freedom are Winners.”

Gerda Weissmann Klein’s Oscar® acceptance speech for the documentary “One Survivor Remembers” chronicling her six years living with the horror of Nazi encampment offers up an open hearted expression of grace.

Advertisement

“I have been in a place for six incredible years where winning meant a crust of bread and to live another day. Since the blessed day of my liberation I have asked the question why am I here? I am no better.”

The beauty in this survivor’s story and Gerda’s sharing is that she reminds us in the face of outlasting unimaginable hardness and evil, there is open ness and there is Love.

“In my mind’s eye I see those years and faces of those who never lived to see the magic of a boring evening at home. On their behalf I want to thank you for honoring their memory. And you cannot do it in any better way than when you return to your homes tonight to realize that each of you who know the joy of freedom are winners. Thank you on their behalf with all my heart.”

Forgiveness does not mean forgetting it means transforming the anger and releasing that which can no longer torture you. That which is in the past. Because it doesn’t exist and can no longer hurt you. It means honoring yourself, your history, and those who have touched your life by living yours in full emblem of the truest space of a Loving heart.

Freedom is the foundation of strength and joy and as Gerda so beautifully puts it, contains the magic of choice. The choice to spend a boring evening at home and to honor each other with Love. Something that should never be taken for granted.

When the sun breaks through the darkness of a new day we get to give thanks for the joys of freedom and abundance we do have and to extend love to those we encounter. If you are tempted by the blues, and we all are, it is part of the human condition, or drawn into believing in the fear, be gentle with yourself and remember we have all been given a choice, a choice to see the Love in whatever situation we find ourselves in. When you are loving to yourself the hurts and blues and depressions become bare-able, and when the question comes up “Why Am I Here?” one answer you can count on is to shine your light as brightly and lovingly as possible.

Advertisement

Like Richard Harris at the end of Lerner and Loewe’s Camelot (the musical retelling of the story of the legend of King Arthur, Guinevere and Lancelot) when realizing the battle is lost, pulls a young soldier from the battlefield to send him out into the world to tell the story of this place where freedom and joy and grace lived and breathed.

Ask every person if he’s heard the story

And tell it strong and clear if he has not

That once there was a fleeting wisp of glory called Camelot

Don’t let it be forgot

That once there was a spot

A brief and shining moment

For happy ever aftering

That was known as Camelot

Advertisement

We are here to extend Love on the planet. To act in Love and to be Loving. Nothing more is required. As this years Oscar awards© fade into memory let us remember together the part each of us plays in our own award winning dramas.

With the proliferation of technology and the advancement of weaponry to destroy it is clear there is one path through… Remembering the truth. Peace is your responsibility and Love Remains the Answer.

“One resists the invasion of armies; one does not resist the invasion of ideas.”

— Victor Hugo from his History of Crime “

Leave the past behind and open up to different thinking; where peaceful ideas are our imagination’s new army.

Flight of the Soul Time – Divine Love and Wisdom on Tap

posted by Melanie Lutz

In the preface to Emanuel Swedenborg’s Divine Love and Wisdom the Latin Translator of the text talks about the sketch of a Roman Garden that adorned the title page of each of Swedenborg’s books under the phrase Cura Et Labore “with care and work.” The image of a beautiful garden with a cherub like Angel watering the plants tending to the well loved garden’s growth and harmony strikes to the core of any process.

It is a reminder of the wisdom and grace that exists when discipline is applied to commitment in realizing the fruits of our labor. It represents the opportunity for us to make manifest the joys of a life fully lived in divine Love. When we enrich each moment with care and work, making conscious choices. Free of the energies that keep us bound. We allow nature to take its course in harmony without calling out the struggle, we effortlessly step into the full beauty of existence.

Move into the garden of your being remembering everything is as it is. You are exactly where you are supposed to be and you know absolutely how to tend to your needs.

Swedenborg was one of the first and my favorite dude to express the idea of religion into the revelation of light and to translate the ideas into the concept of spirituality tramping through the late 1600’s through 1772, that all the doors lead to the same place.  His roots into the ideals of mysticism are well documented and another of the Renaissance spirits who illuminated concepts outside of the current limitations of present conscious understanding.   Like Benjamin Franklin who would follow in Swedenborg’s self publishing divinely inspired writings Swederborg is an inspiration.   Men of vision and insight and continual curiosity expanding principles into the hearts and minds of humanity to lead the way forward to freedom.

Spending the end of the year enjoying the spirit and love and all the wisdom imaginable celebrating how far on the journey to discover the truth I had come was the ultimate gift.  I know how blessed I am to know what I know and to get to participate with so many of you in sharing this beautiful, wonderful life.  Thanks again for all the miracles and thanks again for the laughs and most importantly thanks for all the memories.

Keep in mind, you are enough, nothing to do to be more of who you are.

“A wise old Owl sat on an oak, The more he saw the less he spoke, The less he spoke the more he heard, Why aren’t we all a bit more like that wise old bird?”

Take today to begin new endeavors open up to new projects allow new relationships to flow while treasuring the old as the days stretch forward filled with more and more light and love.  May this new day bring you everything possible in service for the highest expression of who you are.  May you live in the fullest expression of joy and happiness possible and may you always remember whatever your circumstance the center of inner peace is yours.

35 Things I learned from Mel’s Love Land Next 100 Days of Love…

posted by Melanie Lutz

1)  Sometimes there is nothing to do but be loving. 

 

2) Things that I thought took so much time to unfold, really took no time at all upon their completion.  The experience was everything.

 

3) Mistakes mean nothing in the course of a life well lived, where the foolishness of love are the adventures of the soul.

 

4) Love is the most powerful force in every situation.

 

5) Practicing love is the exercise of the heart.

Advertisement

 

6)  Love’s perfection lies in the acceptance of each moment.

 

7) When you let love lead the way you always end up exactly where you are supposed to be.

 

8) If you are not thinking with love what you are seeing and saying (to yourself and others) is not real.  

***This one is a blink, blink, blinky mcblinkerson one, requiring a love yourself heart opening detachment and release of the ‘you’ve got to be kidding me.’

 

9) Love does not live in the past or predict the future, it is complete in this present moment, highlighting what needs present attention past the blocks self placed in front of the heart.

Advertisement

 

10) No matter what circumstance seems to be put in front of you, the deepest truth of our loving humanity is always available.

 

11) People find loving everyone tough because on some deep level we all get the Martin Luther King Jr. influenced by love statement our job isn’t to like everyone it is to love them.  So those that bug us, irritate us, drive us to the brink, are in our lives to teach us love.

 

12) When you think it hurts to much to love and you want to close your heart and call them names and point out why they are assholes, love more deeply, it only means that you love yourself enough to remember how closing your heart brings you pain.

Advertisement

 

14) Wisdom and understanding and forgiveness flow freely from an open heart.

 

15) Giving is receiving in loving action.

 

16) Losses are openings to a beautiful understanding of the magic of nature.

 

17) The work of love always being the answer – arrives at many results.

 

18) What disappears in the practice of love is not meant for you at this time.

Advertisement

 

19) Love sometimes brings in a punch in the face, this does not mean there is anything wrong with loving someone.  It means that you take back your keys, move quickly away from them.

 

20) When love becomes the way you move through the world you are a loving vortex of joy, a person in whose presence people feel the connection to the eternal.  Nothing that comes up changes that force of aliveness.

 

22) No matter how many labels, ideas, letters, slurs, hashtags, we are all the same in love.

 

23) Seeds always grow.  Plant them with love and save yourself the heartache of the weeds of anxiety and fear.

Advertisement

 

24) Love never ends and remains long beyond the form of the individual.

 

25) The earth has been spinning around for a long ass time.

 

26) There is no journey, there is only remembering the truth with love.  We choose the players we play with.

 

27) You are guilty or guiltless, bound or free, unhappy or happy, simple by choosing love over fear.


28) The soul knows where it belongs, not some of the time, all of the time.

Advertisement


29) Forgiveness is the grace of love.

 

30) Life is complicated, love is not.

 

31) Love’s expression takes different forms with various people and places in time, it continues on and keeps us connected.  

 

32) Love has no end! 

 

33) Love may express itself in one person or at one time as a mother’s love, and at another, as a romantic partner, a teacher, healer, a business partner, etc. Our sacred contracts with each other take different forms or expressions of Love.   While not all sacred relationships are meant to result in love affairs – all are the affairs/expressions of Love! One Love expression isn’t fuller, truer or more complete than the others and Love doesn’t end when our sacred contracts are fulfilled.

Advertisement

 

34) Love’s beautifully varied expressions are all facets of the same crystal! That love expresses itself in all these ways is a testament to the power and beauty of our never-ending spirits and the fact that All is One and Love is All there Is.

 

35) No matter what the question… love always remains the answer.

 

With Infinite Love and Gratitude…

January is the Month for JOY ! Joy is the Wisdom of the Heart

posted by Melanie Lutz

Joy made manifest is love.   In every way Joy is a special wisdom filled with the best of the truth of love.  A love that keeps us in strength and courage and  hope and faith and patience and the glory of all that is in each moment.

In the coming weeks, as I work through the editorial process for Vanessa by the Sea: No Matter What the Question Love Always Remains the Answer thought it would be fun to share the joy of reading and releasing words onto the page, infusing them with love and spirit, (in some cases crafting) and in others leaving the jagged edge of inspiration untouched.

May Joy flourish in your heart and mind and may all your dreams find new light and new vibrations and new loves to grow into all they are meant to be!!  May the days ahead bring more wisdom and insight and always Love as we practice untrammeled joy!

Friendship Illuminates Our Wholeness, Supports and Empowers our Hearts in Celebration of All We Are…

posted by Melanie Lutz

10885082_900477003326314_2200676249171424367_nFriendship is where we learn how to trust ourselves with another person, where we share all of ourselves, and in the beauty of our friend relationships we learn how to live out our fullest potential.

I hold friendship in the highest regard.  Every day, every hour, I witness great and powerful acts of friendship and love.  It is an honor to place my self in the seat of relationship with the many miraculous people I am privileged to know and love.

Advertisement

“When perfect friendship exists either between two hearts or within a group of hearts in a spiritual relationship, such friendship perfects each individual. The heart purified by friendship provides an open door to unity. Through it you invite other souls to enter the temple of brotherhood – those who love you, and even those who love you not…”

We all have our ways of being in the world moving through what we need to in each of our lifetimes.  Having friends makes everything easier.  Thanks to all those I am lucky enough to call friend.

IN whatever language you want to play back the essence of the soul, the same evocative feeling pours forth from source, one of Flight of the Soul’s inspirations, German born Rudolph Steiner’s Calendar of the Soul in an Italian translation I find amusing and contented and inspired…
 
parlano dello stesso fatto
l’amicizia divina
 
cio che
vogliamo condurre
diretto ad una chiara e certa meta
 
English Translation
speak of the same fact
the divine friendship
 
what you
want to conduct
directed to a clear and firm goal
 
One of my early teachers, a Monk from the tradition of Self Realization Fellowship….

If we know anybody in our lives who really love us enough to want to help us, to tell us the hard things, they are our greatest friends. Because happy talk only goes so far, because our soul knows – I’ve got blind spots. I’m in denial. I have addictions. I’m really upside down on many things.   If somebody, in a loving enough way, can slip me that little message to even help me on that road, and let me know they’re going to love me before, during and after the process. That is the highest degree of friendship.  – – Craig Marshall from the documentary Secrets of Love

However your life is in its present time.  Get on the Friendship Train with the Fabulous Gladys Night and the Pips and make today a day that you celebrate your brothers in all their ups and downs and ways of being in your life.  Cherish them as we take these important steps as a world together into more and more love as way of being…

Oh yes, it is people, let me tell you now
We’ve got to learn to live with each other

No, no matter what the race, creed or color
I just got to tell you what the world needs now
Is love and understanding get on board the Friendship Train

Everybody shake a hand, shake a hand
People I’m talking about the Friendship Train
Everybody, shake a hand, make a friend now
Listen to us now, we’re doing our thing

DAY 98 MEL’S LOVE LAND #NEXT100 | THIS DAY I CHOOSE TO SPEND IN PERFECT PEACE

posted by Melanie Lutz

Lesson 255 in the ACIM goes hand in hand with one of Gandhi’s principles ‘if we want to contribute to peace we have to do more. We have to become more peaceful’ the end is inherent in the means- Direct and simple. Peace needs peaceful hearts Peace needs funding Peace needs activism

Peace needs a commitment Make a commitment to peace in your heart right now.

Ask yourself in that silent space of your intuition-

“Where is there an attack thought I can surrender inside my own head?”

“Where is there a gun in my personal arsenal that I can retire?”

Change occurs in the human heart.

Advertisement

If you think opening your heart to change your own attack thoughts is foolish or impossible, remember Bobby Kennedy’s words “some people see things as they are and say why, I dream things that never where and say why not.”

Why not peace in your heart, right now?  Why not?

You have the power with your love, with your forgiveness, with your kindness, with your peaceful state of awareness.

You have power with your thoughts to change your reality.  Make a shift in your perception from fear to love and have a miracle.

Hold to your own joy. Hold to your bliss. Hold to your light. Illuminate the way be shining your light  radiantly.

Enjoy the peaceful heart of joy!
