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.

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,
reconcile the despair over the gap between legislation being enacted granting rights and the prejudice being perpetrated around the country negating the spirit of universal equal rights.
wave of forgiveness to caress whoever has come to mind that needs this wave of love, allow this wave of love to flow freely from center and watch it embrace those in need and those we cherish and those we don’t know and the world at large, flowing into the ethers of the universe. Rest and relax and know all is well and all will be well and return once again to center, the source of all the love there ever was, all the miracles that are possible, and all the joy that resides in the purest laugh of the smiling heart.
I am the One who is the Mother of all the mothers, who is the Primordial Mother, the Shakti, the desire of God, who has incarnated on this Earth to give its meaning to itself; to this creation, to human beings and I am sure through My Love and patience and My powers I am going to achieve it. I was the One who was born again and again, but now in my complete form and complete powers I have come on this Earth not only for salvation of human beings, not only for their emancipation, but for granting them the Kingdom of Heaven, the Joy, the Bliss that your Father wants to bestow upon you.” – Shri Mataji,

the onslaught of doubts on the interior and exterior in conflict with the effort required to release love’s fullest power and the healing that extends from its embrace.
Corinthians 13:7-13 a good reminder of the depths with which this energy flows. “Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends; as for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. For our knowledge is imperfect and our prophecy is imperfect; but when the perfect comes, the imperfect will pass away. When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child; when I became a womyn, I gave up childish ways. For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall understand fully, even as I have been fully understood. So faith, hope, love
abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.”
As Rumi wrote – You are not a drop in the ocean. You are the entire ocean in a drop. Practice seeing with the heart. Feast on the fullness of love’s expression igniting a fire of possibility for peace on earth. Enjoy the world you see with your heart.
Love is the wake up call of the moment. This is the destiny of this expression of humanity. This is the way that we understand our destiny to love and be loved.
The mechanism of love, those internal gears that are developed over time and in the
flow of our life as we practice the discipline of love as a way of being brings us into the center of our divinity.
how small the beginning may seem to be,
because there is no more physical room to hide. A great light is being cast on
the things that aren’t important, that aren’t working, so they can be addressed, atoned and freed, bringing everything up and out of the shadows for a Love filled healing so we can experience the Truth.
Each of us finds our own way on the path of the peaceful spiritual warrior in Love, as my favorite Rabbi shares “capable of wrestling with life without being
defeated by living.” Each of us finds our own way to express this language
of the heart and live in our joy.
May you be blessed today. May you find peace today. May you cherish the joy in your heart.
For this new moon, any new beginning, a quiet affirmation…

“Wise men don’t need to prove their point;
men who need to prove their point aren’t wise.”
— Tao Te Ching – Lao Tzu
Thinking with love is a blessing to ourselves and the world we inhabit. Being loving is not meant to prove a point. It is an action that is whole and complete. Using Lao Tzu’s words and heart, the undertaking of a Love Movement as sharing, not enforcing has been the whole enchilada. Everything is offered up with love for your consideration. You have a choice to be wise, to live in the center of your divine inner wisdom, to experience the grace and ease of source flow of all knowing in complete service to your gifts to our collective humanity.

Life is not always like a box of chocolates, sometimes you do know what you are going to get. There are signs and wisdom designed to give you instructions on the way forward, to guide you with love into new realms. Here are a couple of great wisdom pieces from some of our most loving Wisdom Masters that have helped me.
“Life is like a door: if it is written “pull”, please don’t push.” — Paulo Coelho (@paulocoelho) November 24, 2013
“If you try to fail, and succeed, which have you done?” ― George Carlin
What matters is you keep your heart open and stay in movement in the divine dance of possibility.
Lots of Love, Mel

Loving thought in the world creates space for unlimited possibilities.
That energy of love’s purest grace is made manifest through our soul’s code working in concert with our nature. How we cultivate this powerful force of our being relates the ease at which we move through the world lending our imprint. Cultivating love in action is a practice like anything else of inspiring the leading edge of loving presence where miracles occur naturally.
Commit to be loving to yourself with each step forward, shift your thinking with love, and don’t
stop until the miraculous unfolding beyond fear blossoms. Take responsibility
for the joy that is possible in your heart space. Take today to make a commitment to loving.
