Flight of the Soul

Step into the destiny of this moment.  No matter what you think is stopping you, forget it and jump in, take that next step.  Remember you begin again with each breath where everything is possible and new worlds await.  It is only important that you take the step forward.

In developing this practice your internal gears create a movement of great beauty that is a life fully expressed because you did what needed to be done.  You moved forward to your deliverance from the evils that keep you stuck.

This is the way that we are destined to understand.  This is the wake up call of the moment.  This is the destiny of this expression of humanity.  Moving forward even though we feel stuck or trapped or whatever.

The journey to our authentic self is our destiny. We arrive through love in all its blazing glory.

Commit to be loving to yourself with each step and don’t stop until the miraculous unfolding beyond your fear blossoms.  Take responsibility for the joy that is possible in your heart space.

Go forward and be all that you can be.

Here’s to life, to dreamers, and their dreams…

Here’s a tiny side note that seems like a great accompaniment to today’s topic…  I was lucky enough to get to see Shirley Horn at the Cinegrill at the Hotel Roosevelt in Los Angeles.  Like every master performer she shared life’s deepest secrets through the artistry of her voice.  Shirley Horn delivered a lifetime in five minute blocks with song and left an indelible mark on my heart.  She is still an inspiration.

When Shirley Horn sings All you give is all you get, words written by the great Johnny Mandel you know you are in the presence of the truth.

Check out the Shirley Horn documentary and take that next step.

Here’s to Life!

Deep listening is the most direct route to connecting to your still small voice, to those whispers of spirit.

You know. You know when you listen to that voice, that feeling,and you know when you don’t.

It is a practice you can strengthen.

The universal symphony is always broadcasting the most divinely inspired message guiding us along our journey freeing up our life to purpose when we tune in. Connecting to that space and the deeper river of consciousness is apparent when we listen.

A reminder.

In listening we return home…

May you feel connected, comforted and full of peace

Today. Now. Always.

May you surrender your defenses, open your heart and love freely, listening in full harmony with the deepest space of your being.

Day Seven Next 100 Mel's Lheartove Land

Mel's Love Land by Melanie Lutz Next100Every breath represents the beginning of a new cycle. An opportunity to begin again. In each new breath, we can make a commitment to being Loving, creating a reset point in your operating system. Opening the gateways to new worlds of possibility never before experienced.

“Courage is more exhilarating than fear and in the long run it is easier. We do not have to become heroes overnight. Just a step at a time, meeting each thing that comes up, seeing, it is not as dreadful as it appeared, discovering we have the strength to stare it down.”  – Eleanor Roosevelt

When you make Love a daily practice, embracing each step in your process every day becomes a celebration inviting all parts of you to be nourished allowing everyone you encounter to open in joyful meetings and blessed interaction.  Pure Love is the full knowing of the truth of your being.

Let the Angels in your life lead the way and absolutely without hesitation let yourself go with Love,

Shake it Off and begin Again Next100 Love LandToday is the day to pick yourself up, dust yourself off and start again.  A lesson and a way of life.  In achieving this inner reset button where you have a mechanism of restoring your connection to your divine source that is in you but not of you, you take the largest step toward your practice of being loving and you demonstrate to those around you, your family and friends and strangers on the street how to thrive.  Just because we get older and we know more, it doesn’t mean the principles of nature stop.  Everything is a cycle.  Everything is a process from which we are moving through in complete connection to our inner Tahiti.

Take today to say this is a new day loving yourself, my family and those in my community.

I know how it is to start over and leap into the unknown giving up one life in service of an intuition something magnificent is possible.    Do not get discouraged by anything that might come up.   Keep going.   Making these shifts in our knowing that whatever happens we are held and okay and at the end of each and every day we are loved, goes the longest way to creating permanent peace in your life and in your heart.

Get comfortable with the mechanism of magnificence always available that doesn’t care if you fall down, only that you shake it off and get up and begin again.  Falling is something that happens to us.  Shaking it off and beginning again is a choice we make to honor our self and all that comes up in each of our lives.

Remembering it is a process of unlearning what we have learned, and this process is always going on.  The mental attitude and practice of love is something that when repeated in action creates peace in your heart.

 

Foster the capacity to have more compassion for yourself and what seems to be a mis-take or an embarrassment and live in the loving energy of the truth of who you are.

 

Forgive yourself now, then and forever for every unloving thought, release it into the ethers from whence it came.

 

May you feel connected, comforted and full of peace

Today. Now. Always.

May your days be free from strife and worry

and all your steps be light and bright.

 

Take the pledge today to identify with love and enjoy yourself out there.   For the Next 100 Days I am going to consider the possibility there is another way.

Enter the sacredness of your truest home, that space where love and forgiveness meets an open heart becoming a soulful force of nature.  Become today someone who is full and rich and free of the past judgments and dramas and struggles.

#Love #Inspiration #Move

A dear comedy writer friend of mine shared a tiny detail of his process in handling the massive rejection and ongoing notes and the general ‘not getting it’ that takes place with his work. He made a decision long ago that when someone did say something nice he would take it at face value imagining the kind thought floating directly into his heart taking full residence, hugging and embracing the feeling of acceptance in its entirety.

Cherish the nice things people have to say, be grateful for the kindness, and accept the blessing without self judgment deflecting it absorbing it deeply into the seat of your soul.

May you feel connected, comforted and full of peace

Today. Now. Always.

May you be lead to a profound opening in your vision of what is
into all that awaits…

LOVING THOUGHTS TO REMEMBER

Do not get caught up in the lost 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.  Live in the loving embrace of your peace filled thoughts in with your surroundings.

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.  Today is Day 1 of the #Next 100 Mel’s Love Land Challenge to take a stance in your life and quite simply, look at the world with love.  It is  the day to remember life begins again in each breath.  With this next breath it is time to make a shift in consciousness, to choose in this moment to be more loving than the last.

We have the opportunity right now to assume any position we want to assume, why not choose Love?

STAND UP

That man or woman in the mirror who needs to remember the truth of who you are and why you are here on the planet.  There are a lot of conversations we could be having about how tricky this situation is, or how caught up I am in my feelings, but the only conversation we need to have is am I being loving.  am I being compassionate. am I being kind.

This is the stance of remembering we are powerful beyond measure and this is what we take forward as our birthright.

SPEAK OUT

We can’t keep up with everything that is taking place in the world and we do no not have time to worry about what we can do nothing about.  Our voice is important.  Exercising that voice with love is our responsibility.

The focus falls to the individual.  It falls to the places and spaces of our playing field.  The areas of our hearts were we are in community with the world.  Life is an ongoing exercise of love in compassionate action.  It is all things in all ways and the essence of a people’s faith in each other.

TAKE ACTION

Doing the right thing is only possible when we have been taught to practice loving thought, when we have a discipline to move through the every creating illusions of our fears.

Let’s trust in love and make that the bottom line.

Take the Mel’s Love Land pledge | For the #Nex100 days I am going to Consider the Possibility there is Another Way… www.melanielutz.com

Expressing the work of the soul in openness and joy and so much love TS Eliot’s Four Quartets spoke of the release into what lies beneath and beyond…

I said to my soul, be still, and wait without hope
For hope would be hope for the wrong thing; wait without love,
For love would be love of the wrong thing; there is yet faith
But the faith and the love and the hope are all in the waiting.
Wait without thought, for you are not ready for thought:
So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing. (III)
 
 
Enjoy this prayer for light, love, freedom and joy, where all your dreams come true in the open hearted grace of now…

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 be-come 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.”

Bring me new love in the ways that you know will nourish and sup-port 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.

Melanie Lutz's Love Land pure love

beliefnet flight of the soul melanie lutz #Next100 rainbow jesusOnly love is real.  Let’s take this moment to make a shift in our perceptions.  To choose to consider the possibility there is another way to look at what is in front of you, that Love always remains the answer.

For the #Next100 days I am going to consider the possibility there is another way. I am going to make #LoveLand a part of my daily experience in community.

As a preview, Day One’s tip will be, only love is real.  This reality is the beginning and ending of every encounter.  Let this be in your heart song through all the days of your practice that begin with your consideration that there is another way.

If you only read and take in one day and put it into practice in every encounter, your life will expand Lovingly 1000 fold.  Today your tiny journey into the heart of Love begins, with the intention to speak clearly and with intention and to see with love to open up to your heart in ways up to now you only dreamed of beginning each day with loving thoughts and ending each night in the same space of your heart.

We are choosing to start this #Next100 on September 22nd.  You are welcome to join us for our Feast of Love launch then, or you can go your own way and begin a journey each day and open your heart to new vision in a way that works for you.  You get to choose.

Starting 9/22 Beliefnet’s Flight of the Soul will give some air and space for Love Land to offer some kick starters for loving thoughts and inspiration all shared with so much love and grace and joy and glee to support massive shifts in perception from fear to love.

Take the pledge and make lover the bottom line.

For the #Next100 days I am going to consider the possibility there is another way. I am going to make #LoveLand a part of my daily experience in community.

For me, each statement is a commitment to think differently and to be love in each moment as a choice.

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. 
 

Join us September 22nd for a #nextlevel cycle of love and light in your life…

Welcome to Love Land’s Next 100.

Take the time to move past the ego to execute the task that is being asked of you.  To be more Loving.  In pushing past resistance you move past, if I felt like it, or is this something I enjoy doing, or if I had time in my busy schedule.

I offer all of this as a beginning into a new day for you.

It is hard for me to know what will resonate for you and I don’t have to.  I do know you have all the answers to your questions and wonderings and worrying.  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.

I can’t say that every day will be super profound or that I will find the perfect loving thought for each day, what I can say is.  In the effort is the reward and in the reward there will be a new space of being.

The rite of passage over 100 days represents an important understanding in decoding your world, to reconnect to principles, like remembering how to add 2 plus 2 to get 4 to move to 4 x 12 equals 48, to algebra and beyond.

Whether you base your world view 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 celebrates my graduation into loving myself.

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 100 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.

Enjoy and welcome to #LoveLand!

Love, Mel

Every great essay, movement, invention, innovation, exercise begins and ends with what I call my theory of genius-ness.  That moment of intuition and courage when spirit delivers a message on the wings of angels.

“I have a great idea.”

The pure expression of purpose and wakefull-ness.  My idea is so great, I am going to share it.  No problem.  No worries.  Greatness expressed as purpose.  that inherent confidence and courage of  ‘I will share what I am here to share and speak from my heart.’  The words, let us not fight our function, come to mind.  Allow this expression of joy and support for all that is intended to flow forth into  the universal symphony.  The magic and miracle of life in the action of the intuition of what is possible for peace and love on the planet.  The greatness that lives in each of us.

Joseph Campbell stated “What if we choose not to do the things we are supposed to do? The principal gain is a sense of an authentic act – and an authentic life. It may be a short one, but it is an authentic one, and that’s a lot better than those short lives full of boredom. The principal loss is security. Another is respect from the community. But you gain the respect of another community, the one that is worth having the respect of.”

We all adjust and adapt to change everyday whether it is comfortable or not.  We can revise things over time, as we experience the now and it is gone and in a new new there is something evolved in ourselves that brings the joy and love and expression into light rising with each and every present.   Emerson talks of this idea in his essay on Self Reliance and in its depths we see the truth born in the hearts of each of our expressions here on the planet:

The soul always hears an admonition in such lines, let the subject be what it may. The sentiment they instil is of more value than any thought they may contain. To believe your own thought, to believe that what is true for you in your private heart is true for all men, — that is genius. Speak your latent conviction, and it shall be the universal sense; for the inmost in due time becomes the outmost,—— and our first thought is rendered back to us by the trumpets of the Last Judgment. Familiar as the voice of the mind is to each, the highest merit we ascribe to Moses, Plato, and Milton is, that they set at naught books and traditions, and spoke not what men but what they thought. A man should learn to detect and watch that gleam of light which flashes across his mind from within, more than the lustre of the firmament of bards and sages. Yet he dismisses without notice his thought, because it is his. In every work of genius we recognize our own rejected thoughts: they come back to us with a certain alienated majesty. Great works of art have no more affecting lesson for us than this. They teach us to abide by our spontaneous impression with good-humored inflexibility then most when the whole cry of voices is on the other side. Else, to-morrow a stranger will say with masterly good sense precisely what we have thought and felt all the time, and we shall be forced to take with shame our own opinion from another.
 
There is a time in every man’s education when he arrives at the conviction that envy is ignorance; that imitation is suicide; that he must take himself for better, for worse, as his portion; that though the wide universe is full of good, no kernel of nourishing corn can come to him but through his toil bestowed on that plot of ground which is given to him to till. The power which resides in him is new in nature, and none but he knows what that is which he can do, nor does he know until he has tried. Not for nothing one face, one character, one fact, makes much impression on him, and another none. This sculpture in the memory is not without preestablished harmony. The eye was placed where one ray should fall, that it might testify of that particular ray. We but half express ourselves, and are ashamed of that divine idea which each of us represents. It may be safely trusted as proportionate and of good issues, so it be faithfully imparted, but God will not have his work made manifest by cowards. A man is relieved and gay when he has put his heart into his work and done his best; but what he has said or done otherwise, shall give him no peace. It is a deliverance which does not deliver. In the attempt his genius deserts him; no muse befriends; no invention, no hope.
 
Trust thyself: every heart vibrates to that iron string. Accept the place the divine providence has found for you, the society of your contemporaries, the connection of events. Great men have always done so, and confided themselves childlike to the genius of their age, betraying their perception that the absolutely trustworthy was seated at their heart, working through their hands, predominating in all their being. And we are now men, and must accept in the highest mind the same transcendent destiny; and not minors and invalids in a protected corner, not cowards fleeing before a revolution, but guides, redeemers, and benefactors, obeying the Almighty effort, and advancing on Chaos and the Dark.
 

The soul knows where it belongs not some of the time all of the time.  In remembering this fact we return to love with each majestic breath.  Self Reliance as resilience practiced through the courage of intuition.

What is this self reliance that lives to fight another day remembering the light of resilience that remains no matter what advancing chaos and the dark.  For me there is no more spectacular example of the ability to make it work than iconic business woman, comedienne and inspiration Lucille Ball.  At every crossroads in her career she broke barriers, when she didn’t fit she didn’t say “better pack it in.”  She found another way.

In light of all that is taking place it is important to remember that flexibility does not mean you are losing your power it means you are gaining in your ability to dance with your circumstances demonstrating your fullest dynacism and fantasticness of purpose and confidence in all that will be and all that is manifest destiny.

Life is meant to be lived out loud in free expression of its greatest expression fully alive and awake into the horizon of life’s greatest lessons in continual change from light to dark, to life and death, through the seasons and beyond.

Keep today in your heart as one for greatness, for the completeness in the possibility for growth.  Allow the courage of your heart to land in the deepest recesses of possibility and let it go.  9/22 flight of the soul will be embarking on its third year of Love Land,  blazing forward with the message “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 look forward to the next journey into love and hope you can join us.  Check out Mel’s Love Land here.

Lots of Love,

Melanie
