So often in our days and nights we forget the truth about who we are. We need a reminder that Love always remains the answer. I am as sure of this as I am that the sun rises every morning.
For me Love is my mantra.
When I was going through a particularly challenging time, early in my process of mastering this loving energy that is so present in all of our days I heard Chris Rice sing Love is gonna break through and it enforced the beauty of that which we all understand…My heart pounds with a thunder I stop and wonder what should we do with life’s surprises. Everyday the sun rises on us Like a swing set in the grave yard like a bloom in the desert sand Look at my trembling hands It hits me like lightning Love must keep fighting Somehow every time Love is gonna break through
All of us are beautiful in our expressions and our daily exploits moving in one society. This day is one to remember Love is Gonna Break Through.
PS. I found this performance of Chris singing the song on Youtube and even though it is recorded by someone in the audience and the quality of the video is questionable. The sound, the intimacy and the purpose and power of this truthful soulful song sung by this man is beautifully rendered.
Thanks to Chris and everyone who shines their light sharing so magnificently who they are through their gifts!

Evian waters nailed it with their delightful campaign…
Where does our innocence live, how is it that when we return to this understanding of the truth of that which lives eternally we are in joy with our life exactly as it is. Lifted up and shining in true glory. In this state of grace, no matter what becomes of us, we know that everything is fine. In remembering in each moment we are given the privilege to return to the ground of our being, that innocent child of wisdom and love. that which lives eternally in our hearts and minds and is without worry and finds the magic in the present moment..
God can only be known through his works. God is our work in the world. A work of art tells us that nature cannot make what man can make. When I’m lost I turn to nature to provide. It’s always there. When you want to give something presence you have to consult nature. Your materials speak to you. Honoring what you use. Honor the material. That’s how I take life. We glorify what is not short change it. I surrender all that came before All the pieces and places I cannot change I stand here growing younger with each breath in all the glory that was and ever is. I surrender all that came before all the pieces and places I cannot change I stand here reaching and stretching and growing younger.
We don’t go through life accepting all the love there is around us. It’s one of the strangest parts of the gift of love and the ‘protections’ that came into being at its outward birth into the human-ness of the world. It was the hardest thing to learn that being generous out of self-interest was the way. The only way.
Main teaching of the bible is “Love.” God is love. Play out of weakness and live in your strengths. Rustle forward and embrace your inner freedom to dance.
My internal voice loved. Loved. To call out. “Try to put your best foot forward. It took me forever to connect, the best foot forward is the inner most expression of Yourself.
We have all been given so many gifts… It is time to open up the doors and let it free.

With gentle grace there is release.
It isn’t proving you don’t need love. It’s soaking up every ounce of love you can feel, get your hands around. It’s important to celebrate your life. It’s the only one we have. And in it we are serving others. I expect to blow it out at all times in glory and understanding and be damned if I’m a wilting butterfly. I am an Amazon of biblical and epic proportions and god damn it if I’m not going to explore it endlessly and effortlessly in all that I do.
I receive all understanding tenderly. Knowing that it is given in honor of all that I am.
Learning to look at love in a new way. Learning what love actually looks like. Is all we have to learn. That’s the basic and simple and endless journey. Once you have a glimpse of it. Once you’ve seen what it really looks like.
Kahil Gabrain talks of a child’s parents are not their parents… “Your father isn’t your real father. Your mother is not your real mother. Your real father is god. He will re-parent you.
I start praying – with intent….
“Help me feel cherished. So when people cherish me I can recognize it and stand in that space. I will not reject or cling or push away or run some game to avoid claiming that space. I will bask in my inner glow.”

I was ready to leave the little girl behind and embrace the grown woman.

The pure way Michael Jackson sings “I’ll Be There’ written by Berry Gordy in the height of Motown records success reveals the divine at work in all things and the way that music allows a deeper connection with the space that understands what it means to have faith in all you do.
Where there is love, I’ll be there
I’ll reach out my hand to you, I’ll have faith in all you do
Just call my name and I’ll be there
This is as biblical as it gets.
lots of Love,

LOVING THOUGHTS TO REMEMBER
Our actions and thoughts always have consequences. Make your thoughts and actions count. Make them Loving. Look at what you are plugging into, what you are putting your energy towards and from what space in your being it emanates. Is it from your head or your heart? Is it fear or is it Love? Is it bringing you peace or making you crazy? When the scripture says “Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.” It speaks directly to the emotions that create the rubble of our lives. Let go of the pride and fear and ask yourself “If I look at this situation with Love — what is the truth?”
Use the tools of discipline and love to light the way forward. Develop a trinity of Love. Allow patience acceptance and serenity to flow through you, offering the cornerstone in your psyche necessary for forgiveness creating sustained inner peace nourishing every aspect of your being.
Thanks for being you and all you are doing to make the world a better place, smile by smile.
Lots of Love,

In spirit, ask easily for love, for happiness, and for eternal life in peace that has no ending. Ask for this, and you can only win.
Peace is the bridge that everyone will cross, to leave this world behind. But peace begins within the world perceived as different, and leading from this fresh perception to the gate of Heaven and the way beyond. Peace is the answer to conflicting goals, to senseless journeys, frantic, vain pursuits, and meaningless endeavors. Now the way is easy, sloping gently toward the bridge where freedom lies within the peace of God.
Peace is already recognized at last, and you can feel its soft embrace surround your heart and mind with comfort and with love.
Melanie Lutz’s Flight of the Soul celebrates the joy of clear heads, warm hearts and deep inner peace to create limitless possibilities filled with freedom.
I don’t know how it gets better than this. Total love. Each and everyday. Aint no stopping us now. One Hundred and One fantastic days of full celebration of all the love shifting so many perceptions creating unlimited miraculous possibilities. It has been nothing short of spectacular. I am grateful for everyone’s support and continued loving efforts.
When you happen to forget, just remember, there is so much love flowing today and everyday. Catch the wave and ride that underlying river of awesomeness.
Keep in mind a few words to ease the grace road ahead — Effectiveness, commitment, destiny, courage for the unknown, feeling ever into the deep flow of love, energy, calmness available with each breath, connecting all of you in all the love that ever was and ever will be.
Mark TODAY as your harvest time, and absolutely reap what you have sown. If your harvest is sweet, treasure your efforts. If it is sour, treasure your efforts. Remembering the lesson.
In the planting we learn, in the harvest we grow and no matter what, there is absolutely always a new season to begin again.
Take this moment to seize the opportunity to own what you need to own, to fearlessly step into the unknown growing into the grounded darkness of your truest self.
May you feel connected, comforted and full of peace
Today. Now. Always.
May the care and discipline in which you live your life
“We give a gift, not only through what we make or do, but in the way we feel as we do, and even, in the way others witness us in our feeling and doing, giving to them as they give to us, as fellow lovers, fellow struggling marriages: with a person, with a work, with a craft, attempting to keep the conversation alive with the core mystery of what makes us make; a gift that is twice given, physically in the present and imaginatively in the future; a work and an identity that holds both together, not only for an end, but for every step that shapes an onward way.”
© David Whyte: March 2014: Excerpted from ‘WORK’ From the upcoming book of essays CONSOLATIONS: The Solace, nourishment and Underlying Meaning of Everyday Words.
