So Much Love – Day Forty Four

posted by Melanie Lutz

butterfly Door Melanie Lutz Self Portrait #10 #LoveLand101News flash. Love is everywhere.  In everyone.  And is the natural state of being.

As the Troubadours wrote “perfect love is born from what the eyes have made welcome to the heart. For as all true loves know, love is perfect kindness which is born, there is no doubt, from the heart and the eyes.”

Eyes. Being able to see the truth. Not avoiding the Pink elephant in the room. Not staying blind because it feels too painful.

Love doesn’t live in some special place

Love doesn’t ask for secrets to be kept

Love doesn’t bring you down

Love doesn’t confine you

Love doesn’t ask you to stay small

Love doesn’t ask you to stop dreaming

Love doesn’t keep asking you to explain yourself

Love doesn’t isolate

Love doesn’t make you feel bad about yourself

Any placing or substituting loving feelings for an object outside of our being, an object that we are constantly thinking we only have access to through that other person is a fantasy. Thinking someone else holds the key to Love keeps you enslaved.

Love creates connection

Love expands with grace and compassion

Love is truth

Advertisement

Love is light filled

Love expands possibilities

Love dispels fear

Love is in everything, always available.

Love is a meeting place.

Love is a deep space of being.

It is available no matter who, what, where, when, why, you are. The way is simple.

There is one love and it has no differentiation.

Bring love and more love to your life.

May the truth of your expression blaze forth with each breath you take reminding you to fiercely answer the call of your being. To connect to your source. To live fully in the light of the truth and to reflect the beauty that lies waiting alertly and brilliantly for you to sing your song. Your way. With love.

Enjoy the feeling of so much love by bringing love to every situation.

lots of Love,

Practice Trusting Yourself Day Forty Three of #LoveLand101

posted by Melanie Lutz

Believe in yourself and all that you are and all that you were put here to do.  Life doesn’t ask for you to be anything other than to be yourself.  Trust that.  Trust the source of all that is to shine through you.

Where you anticipated grief, you find a happy lightheartedness instead; where you thought something was asked of you, you find a gift bestowed.  — ACIM

On the other side of what you fear is something wholly unexpected.  In trusting yourself you allow the world to deliver its gifts.  Allow yourself the grace in each moment to do as Eleanor Roosevelt said ‘the thing you think you can not do.’

You will find the love on the other side, you will find the respect of courage and the joy of knowing no matter what comes your way, you can handle it.  You will survive and you will grow and you will be all that you can be.

Advertisement

Don’t stop the gifts that want to flow your way because the wall of confinement and separation you have created keeps you safe.  It is no safety at all.  Do that thing you think you can not do and enjoy the aliveness of possibility.  This is your moment.  This the the time.  This is the day you trust yourself and your strength and beauty and courage.  This is your day to love fully and completely by trusting yourself.

“No law the world obeys can help you grasp love’s meaning.”  ACIM  Love is an experience, it is the grandest risk, which is no risk at all.  Stand in the truth of who you are and LOVE yourself today like never before.  Practice trusting each moment and remember the universe is supporting every step, will rise to meet you.

Lots of Love,

Express Yourself. Day Forty Two of #LoveLand101

posted by Melanie Lutz

Get out there and express yourself.   Today is the day to DO IT!1150827_574516499257417_1452083019_n

There is no saying ‘I’m not ready.’  Ready or not.  Go.  If you have always wanted to take a Dance class.  Sign Up.  If you have always longed to do something.  Do it.  Experience the satisfaction of acting on your wish.  Take a chance today to enjoy yourself.  Whatever that means to you.  It can be as simple as taking an orange to your favorite place, and rediscovering the joy of peeling it and enjoying that juicy burst of citrus.  Whatever it is.  Do it.

It takes courage to remember the truth about who you are and own your power.  It takes care and patience to honor yourself by being responsive to your dreams and needs and the simple things like answering the wish of your heart’s desire.

Spread your wings and fly.

I’ll spread my wings and I’ll learn how to fly
I’ll do what it takes til’ I touch the sky
And I’ll make a wish
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway
Out of the darkness and into the sun
But I won’t forget all the ones that I love
I’ll take a risk
Take a chance
Make a change
And breakaway
== Kelly Clarkson

 Enjoy.

Today we practice making free your mind of all the laws you think you must obey; of all the limits under which you live, and all the changes that you think are part of human destiny. Today we take the largest single step this course requests in your advance towards its established goal.”  — ACIM

Affirm It – Day Forty One of #LoveLand101

posted by Melanie Lutz

The world is a beautiful place and the people in it are a most fantastic bunch.  Take today to affirm what is lovely and amazing that sits right before your eyes, every day.  Appreciate the beauty in small things and big things and ordinary things.  Practice this affirmation of grace today and everyday.  Offer the gift of total and complete acceptance by affirming what nourishes the sacred experience of self.  Affirm that which you want to see more of.  Affirm what you love about your self.  Affirm the truth.  You are fantastic.  Make positive projection work for you.  

Advertisement

What you focus on expands.  What you celebrate rains supreme.  By blessing the people, places and things in your life, you are telling the universe you are grateful, that you understand the cycles of nature’s miracles and you are in a practice of deeply understood personal peace with what is, bringing with it expanding, radiating, pulsing peace.

Enjoy this practice of accentuating the positive.

Affirm often and with great joy….

I am a beneficial presence on the planet.  I love who I am and I cherish what I see and every day brings me more and more joy.

lots of love,

Melanie

Experience Your Fullest POWER – Take Big Chances – Day Forty of #LoveLand101

posted by Melanie Lutz

Inspiration + Enthusiasm = BIG Power

Listen to your intuition.

Take chances based on your hearts knowing.

Being In Greatness.

Experiencing your ultimate power.

Enjoy the fullness of possibility.  Celebrate all the wonders spread before you.  Fly like an eagle above the fray of your life giving yourself a google earth view.

Lines drawn to separate are always man made.  Existence has no boundaries, it draws no lines.

Advertisement

A world of possibilities is open to you.  Because you have grown more loving towards yourself, more self-contained, you can work easily with others.  Because you are relaxed and at ease, you can recognize possibilities as they present themselves, sometimes even before others can see them.  Because you are in tune with your own nature, you understand that existence is providing you with exactly what you need.

Allow the remembrance of the principles of freedom and inspiration laid forth and rise into faith and openness.

Today.  Now.  Always.

May you fly free

Allowing the landscape to illuminate

in brilliant bursts of light.

May you feel connected, comforted and full of peace

Today. Now. Always.

May you remember there is no good or bad, there are only opportunities to be more Loving than previously thought possible.  Spend today in a Loving practice taking any action necessary to catapult into the miraculous.

#LoveLand101

Turn it around.  Take the opportunity to reverse everything, in every way, simply by shifting your perception.  Take this way for a change that will bring peace to your inner world.  In shifting your perspective, to the exact opposite track, you have the opportunity to enjoy each experience from a different point of view remembering everything is an experience to learn from and each new perspective brings you more information and deeper meaning reminding you that only love is real. Everything on your path is meant to be experienced, an opportunity for you to grow.

Only Love is Real – Day Thirty Eight

posted by Melanie Lutz

Anything that any of us think that is not of God is not true. God is all encompassing. God is Love. What is all encompassing shall have no opposite.

“Teach only love, for that is what you are.”

-From Chapter Six in ACIM – Lessons of Love

Advertisement

“Only love is real. Nothing else actually exists. If a person behaves unlovingly, then, that means that, regardless of their negativity—anger or whatever—their behavior was derived from fear and doesn’t actually exist. They’re hallucinating. You forgive them, then, because there’s nothing to forgive. Forgiveness is a discernment between what is real and what is not real.”

— Excerpted from A Return to Love: Reflections on the Principles of A Course in Miracles

Make today a day where only love is real, make today a call for peace. A day to remember the power of love to make right any problem, perceived or otherwise.

Feast on Your Life – Day Thirty Seven of #LoveLand101

posted by Melanie Lutz

In full presence of yourself. Today is the day to feast on your life.  To remember loving thought.

Love after Love

The time will come
when, with elation
you will greet yourself arriving
at your own door, in your own mirror
and each will smile at the other’s welcome,
and say, sit here. Eat.

You will love again,
you will love again,
the stranger who was your self.
Give wine. Give bread.

Give back your heart
to itself, to the stranger

who has loved you all your life,
whom you ignored for another,
who knows you by heart.


Take down the love letters from the bookshelf,
the photographs, the desperate notes,
peel your own image from the mirror.

Sit. Feast on your life.

You will love again, you will love again, the stranger who was yourself.

–Derek Walcott

Feast on your life.  How brilliant.  What a deliciously gorgeous way to celebrate who you are.  Ravishing all of you.

It is All About Forgiveness – Day Thirty Six of #LoveLand101

posted by Melanie Lutz

Love isn’t scientific it is wholly an expression and experience of the heart.

The more I know, the less I understandIreland
All the things I thought I knew, I’m learning again
I’ve been tryin’ to get down to the Heart of the Matter
But my will gets weak
And my thoughts seem to scatter
But I think it’s about forgiveness
Forgiveness

Advertisement

– Don Henley The Eagles The Heart of the Matter

Martin Luther King Jr. did not say it is your job to like your enemies, he did say it is your job to Love them. (***see below for more)

Forgiveness is not forgetting.

It is releasing the hurt into Love.

The mental attitude of love is something that when repeated in action achieves the result of peace in our heart.  Love works like an antidote breaking through any pose, opening that core ache of our humanity, that always remembers we are all connected, that is our loving center.

Add love to any equation and you arrive exactly at the heart of the matter. Unhinging the magic of love’s truest power to make right every situation.

Enjoy!

lots of love,

***More Martin Luther King Jr. on Love Your Enemy Like Jesus Does..

The Greek language comes out with another word for love. It is the word agape. …agape is something of the understanding, creative, redemptive goodwill for all men. It is a love that seeks nothing in return. It is an overflowing love; it’s what theologians would call the love of God working in the lives of men. And when you rise to love on this level, you begin to love men, not because they are likeable, but because God loves them. You look at every man, and you love him because you know God loves him. And he might be the worst person you’ve ever seen. And this is what Jesus means, I think, in this very passage when he says, “Love your enemy.” And it’s significant that he does not say, “Like your enemy.” Like is a sentimental something, an affectionate something. There are a lot of people that I find it difficult to like. I don’t like what they do to me. I don’t like what they say about me and other people. I don’t like their attitudes. I don’t like some of the things they’re doing. I don’t like them. But Jesus says love them. And love is greater than like. Love is understanding, redemptive goodwill for all men, so that you love everybody, because God loves them. You refuse to do anything that will defeat an individual, because you have agape in your soul. And here you come to the point that you love the individual who does the evil deed, while hating the deed that the person does. This is what Jesus means when he says, “Love your enemy.” This is the way to do it. When the opportunity presents itself when you can defeat your enemy, you must not do it.

An Earthly Messenger Fulfills his Role by Giving All His Messages Away – Day Thirty Five of #LoveLand101

posted by Melanie Lutz

“Each of us is on the earth with a holy mission: to give and to receive the love of God. With every encounter, it is our function to give to others the love we

#LoveLand101 Heart7wish to receive. As we do so, we minister to their heart and to our own. “  Marianne Williamson

Lesson 154 ACIM states –

I am among the ministers of God.  

Advertisement

Moving further into this idea the text of the lesson states — “The messages that they deliver are intended first for them.  And it is only as they can accept them for themselves that they become able to bring them further, and to give them everywhere that they were meant to be. Like earthly messengers, they did not write the messages they bear, but they become their first receivers in the truest sense, receiving to prepare themselves to give.  An earthly messenger fulfills his role by giving all his messages away.  The messengers of God perform their part by their acceptance of His messages as for themselves, and show they understand the messages by giving them away. They choose no roles that are not given them by His authority.  And so they gain by every message that they give away. 

Advertisement

We will not recognize what we receive until we give it. You have heard this said a hundred ways, a hundred times, and yet belief is lacking still. But this is sure; until belief is given it, you will receive a thousand miracles and then receive a thousand more, but will not know that God Himself has left no gift beyond what you already have; nor has denied the tiniest of blessings to His Son. What can this mean to you, until you have identified with Him and with His Own?”

You are here to deliver your message with love.

Enjoy sharing it today.
