Flight of the Soul

Today is aday to remember the past. To enjoy a throwback Thursday in all its glory.

Here’s a moment from The Bare Melcessitities on Getting Bare in all its amazing wonderfullness and a little talk/reading of it from the Bodhi Tree.

 

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.

Believe it.

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.

 

Awake

With life

With my friends

With my family

With my work

With my being

A life fully known

Fully lived

And

Free

Free to frolic

Free to be

Instant. By. Instant. 

Breathing

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

Risks nothing

Owns everything

Leads the way

Into that water of your brilliant being

Fully alive

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.

Home.

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.

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…

For the next 100 days
I am going to consider the possibility there is another way
I won’t talk about war, I will feel peace.
I won’t talk about what isn’t working.
I will experience what is.
I won’t complain about what people don’t do.
I will appreciate what they do.
Cura Et Labore “with care and work”
I am going to allow myself to be uplifted.
And. Be willing to see change. In a new light.
In what’s remembered.
Take the time to move past the ego to execute the task that is being asked of you. To be more Loving.
I offer all of Mel’s Love Land #Next100 as a beginning into a new day.  The journey of Love continues. Enjoy following along with me in a practice of getting very real about what love is and how it works in your life.
Whether you base your worldview on mathematics, science, religion, god, vibrations, energies, etc. everything in the universe is a harmony at play and in tune with cycles endlessly flowing.
“Show up for Love.
Nothing more is required.”
Love is all around. Love is in the room. Love is in my heart. Love is within.
And.
It is okay for Love to seep into our body and mind and spirits. It is okay to let it transform our fear. It is all okay to surround your intentions with love and release anything that is unwanted, not of the light and hanging around as a downer dragging my spirit into the ethers.
This is the moment when the winds of the angels delivers the message into the warmth of the soul revealing wisdom.
For me, this statement, serves as an affirmation into loving yourself.
All I can do I have done. Where I have held myself back thinking there is something wrong with me in these 100 days I now release. Whatever patterns I have showcased in the past. I release. Whatever comes up that has blocked a natural flow in moving forward with beautiful expressions and collaborations I release. I release everything mentioned and unmentioned into the vientos de los angeles.
Any energies that have been directed in explaining what is a problem. I now direct those energies to move into and nourish the expansion of creativity and love and co-creating all that is beautiful for a loving and fantastically peace-filled future. My minions and my men at work set in action with Love.
Moving on there will be another week, another tomorrow and another breath. There will be another moment and there will be love. Thank God I know only love is real and demonstrate that truth with all the days of my life.
These days ahead will be a reminder all is loving, that endings are beginnings and fears and tears are our friends and these voices in my head can be helpful and are not here to hurt me.
Thanks for your patience and practice and love.
May you feel connected, comforted and full of peace.
Today. Now. Always.

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.

Mel talks about love and the Kindness Club, Gettysburg, September 11 and Soul Ascension.

Enjoy part one of this talk ..

Melanie Lutz All Systems Love July 4th independence day

Having grown up watching every old movie ever made these images are in my DNA, part of my growing up, and live and breath in my heart.  When I stumble on some shared work from one of these movies my heart explodes with gratitude.
Some of the most beautiful words and lyrics we have in the history of American Classical Music have been written by George and Ira Gershwin. They Can’t Take That Away from Me written near the end of George Gershwin‘s life is wrapped with so much love and community, so much respect and reverence for talent and has lived on long past its introduction in Shall We Dance, the 1937 film starring Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.
Drop into the magic with this clip, featuring this song at the end of the film (and because the YouTuber missed the Dancing that does not happen in the 1937 film, edited in the promise fulfilled with the beautiful movement between the two that is featured in The Barkley’s of Broadway from 1949.  Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers shared a balance and harmony and joy of performing with the other. Their chemistry is unmistakeable and we are all the better for these reminders that the universe celebrates music and dancing, a perfect pairing.
YouTube Preview Image
My take away from Ginger Rogers experiencing Fred Astaire sing the Gershwin Brothers tune is one of deep connection to what lies beneath the words and music as we witness Ms. Rogers heart through the lens as she listens to Mr. Astaire singing “the way you changed my life, no, no, they can’t take that away from me…” is beautiful.

I love You Pink Butterflies Melanie LutzAppreciate the amazing magnificence of all that you are and all you were put here on the planet to do.

You are not trying to be any one else, you are living your life as an expression of love for who and what you were put on the planet to do.  This breath represents the fullness of all that you are, every cell of your being alive and awake to who and what makes your heart beat down to the cellular level ingrained in the codes of your DNA.

Love. Yourself. With wild abandon and cherish the moods and rhythms of your sacred sounds.  There is only one of you.  Complete and healed and whole and in full possession of unending joy, peace, love and presence of self.

Experience all of you and say Thanks God for who you are.

Exactly as you are.

Take your authentic loving self into the world and celebrate each step, each encounter and each expression of your truest self, fully revealed and alive and awake in each moment.

If you get hung up on any part of remembering to love who you are, ask yourself the beautiful question “Why Not take all of me?” and enjoy Willie Nelson singing All of Me a song written in 1931 in a decidedly different era…

Why Not?  What do you have to lose?  Why not take a chance on accepting yourself and your way of being as perfectly perfect.

Why not?

We never know why we are made a certain way. Who’s to say one quality you consider a hindrance isn’t the key to your path through. You never know how the gifts you have been given will be received and to what affect. All you can do is give your gifts freely and openly.

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 eve-ry 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 gladly give up my fear

I move into eternal joy

Standing in the truth

Balanced and at peace

Returned to full awareness

Celebrating my life

Let my heart rise and flow

expanding through my breath

In its ever radiating glow

Restore my blissful self to its rightful seat

In Love

Inviting my heart space

to unlock the treasure chest of recognition

Prospering in all ways and means

Revealing what is already mine

In service to my magnificence

Striking a tune the likes of which emanates from my soul

The hum of which cascades ever forward

Gently with force

Exploding the crucible of my being

Once crucified and crushed

Now

Free

In Harmony

With Infinite Love and Gratitude

All You Need is Love NeliganMy thoughts are teachings my teachings are words my words give flight to my dreams

Flight of the Soul started thousands of days ago. Through this blog I have been able to celebrate so many different beliefs, to consider new possibilities, to learn to dance with life as it comes in beautiful harmonies.

Divine Love and Wisdom Unfolds When Wisdom is Applied to Commitmentin that space of the heart. When we are lucky this space is in alignment with all that is.

“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?”

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 beginning of a new year, another Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday weekend 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.

thanks for Joining me for these Flight of the Soul inspirations on Beliefnet.com.

As we all begin new endeavors and new projects and new relationships 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.

lots of love,

Melanie

My best friend is Jewish.  She was raised in a community in Diamond Bar California with a Dad who was superintendent of LAUSD.

When her five year old daughter asked me at a Diner “Is Santa Real?”  My inner Christian froze, a million thoughts went through my head, her Dad is a bit orthodox, they are not super Christmas-ers, God knows I don’t like to lie, and who am I to answer this question.  Whatever was going on in my brain, my heart knew what to say.  “I’m going to write Santa a letter, right now.”

Excitedly, she bounced with Glee, “I want to write one too!”

I didn’t need to tell her anything, her heart knows that Santa lives in our hearts ever available for us to talk to, he is as real as our imagination tangible and intangible, always on call to listen to what our dreams are.

Christmas is the time of year that divine light broke through human consciousness to reveal love and possibilities.  The idea of light being born in complete immaculate space of union with the intersection of humanity and that which is the bridge to other conscious realms. It is an intersection to infinite joy and grace.

Enjoy the holidays and the messages and the symbols and the love flows in your heart no matter what is happening. Today is a day to remember Santa Claus is real, he represents wishes and dreams that live in your heart that want to be born. Gifts given and received and cherished.

Lots of Love,

Melanie
