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.

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.

With Infinite Love and Gratitude

It is Not Losing, It is Learning. Turn It Around. Day Thirty Nine of #LoveLand101

posted by Melanie Lutz

#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.

Enjoy a new vision of life in full engagement of the present.  Where you decide to care and not carry meaning, releasing what happened into a new gorgeous light filled day.

lots of love,

Melanie

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

“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.

Lots of Love,

Melanie

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.

May you feel connected, comforted and full of peace#LoveLand101 Dog Love

Today. Now. Always.

May your heart open in ways never before possible
revealing the deepest truth of your fullest knowing.

With Infinite Love and Gratitude

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

– 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,

Melanie

***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.  

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. 

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.

smiles,

Melanie

Beware an Unrecognized Belief – Day Thirty Four of #LoveLand101

posted by Melanie Lutz

When we don’t have awareness about our thing that triggers us…  The future can be something unintendedly unfortunate. When we are aware of our trigger we can fully make a choice to recognize what is a loving response in each situation and we can dramatically transform the ways which we are in relationship to our environment. #LoveLand101 Beware

Wounding takes place unconsciously and needs an energetic wounder.  It’s part of the human conditioning.  Without knowing it, you subconsciously attract people who articulate and amplify your fears.  Living and working out of your heart space reveals the truth. So you can make the Loving correction, face your fear and allow healing of your vision to enter the equation.

Despair is… I blew it again. I did it again. “Shit. When am I going to stop doing this?”  Interactions are energetically designed for us to learn, evolve, grow and Love.  They are designed for us to get the lesson.  To see the truth.  Any energy or pattern will come back around until it is resolved, forgiven, understood.  A relationship is a gift to see more and more of yourself.

It’s cool. Accept it. You are the problem.

Learn to tune out the voice of your inner self abuser.

Keep your heart open to the truth.

Restore your vision by seeing with loving thoughts.

Allow forgiveness to enter into your heart.

Let the truth behind what hurts, open you up.

Have a beautiful day!

smiles,

Melanie

Get involved with the In Love Ment Movement – Day Thirty Three of #LoveLand101

posted by Melanie Lutz

The definition of involvement is as follows  1) The fact or condition of being involved with or participating in something.  2)  Emotional or personal association with someone.

Over the holiday’s my friend’s Seven year old son read a card he got from his Aunt and Uncle.  As he was reading the word involvement, in his mind the letters transformed and he say out loud “in-love-ment” and kept reading.

I thought, “Wow, In Love ment.”

Sounds like a great idea to me.

He smiled to himself at the sound of it.

“In-love-ment.”

Nobody corrected him.

After completing the reading satisfied with his accomplishment he said.

“I’m a smart guy” radiating a super smile.

Indeed.

Let’s get involved with more love.

Let’s take today to be loving in every way, to start an in love movement.

No matter what divides us… We must remain united in the highest order of love to see us through with right action.  With respect for our differences and find our common humanity. Let’s make exercising our humanity a way of life.  Not because it’s easy.  But because it’s the right thing to do.

We owe it to those who come after us not to fall asleep, not to forget who we are, and to take advantage of the deeper conversation. Today, and every day.

FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION

PEACE IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY
…LOVE REMAINS THE ANSWER

As big as the problems we may face in the world today, the forces coming together in willingness and openness will find the answers. Nothing is insurmountable cause we are in it together.

Stand and Speak The Truth – Day Thirty Two of #LoveLand101

posted by Melanie Lutz

Never more and never before has it been important to stand and speak the truth to power. It is a time of great change and great opportunity so stop being a unique conformist and get out of your box and say what needs to be said. Get the answer you want to know in your heart and then MOVE ONWARD@@!! to what is next.

Promise me that today you will do what you are afraid to do. That you will say what is in your heart to say.

Get the nerve and excerise the muscle beyond the beyond, somewhere over the sea, have faith in what you can’t see and journey deeper into your life.

Ask the qestion. Get the answer. Live your life. Fully. No excuses. No regrets. All love.

Make your life an emblem of beauty. Standing for what is Loving, allowing any action that is necessary to rise up. Never forgetting the highest space of possibility. Remaining centered, so when adversity strikes, when you are irritated, when getting knocked down or stumbling awkwardly when your intention was to soar you know Love takes it all in stride allowing us as Dorothy Fields wrote to “take a deep breath, brush ourselves off and start all over again.”

Surrender All of It – Day Thirty One of #LoveLand101

posted by Melanie Lutz

I am blessed to live and love my life surrounded by people who have a dream, who work every day to transcend the fear of the unknown, and every day rise up to whatever comes no matter what, with grace and compassion.

I have come to a place in my life where I love everyone I meet for who they are, and not for who I wish they were.   The biggest gift you can give anyone is to not make it about you and instead to have new vision to count the blessings of what people are bringing to your life.   Love doesn’t ask you to judge.  Love doesn’t ask for you to understand anything.  It merely requrires you to open your heart and let it flow.  If it aches to do this, more the better.  

Take today to count the blessings in your life and to love someone more than you thought possible.  Turn into the people you see every day, and give yourself the honor of meeting face to face in a practice of loving them more.  Go into the qalities that make you feel love and experience more and more of that fully and at the deepest most open space of your being where you are truly meeting another naked and unashamed.  With love.

Yes, I have heard and experienced that we are meaner to the people that we love the most than we would ever be to a stranger or a friend.  It is a beautiful shift to practice in your life turning to the person who you have spent years of your life with and to say from that open space of your heart.  I love you.  (hugging from the heart is also a fantastic process – see AMMA )

This shift is something I am proud to stand with and to share as often as possible.  Be love.   Watch the world of the heart open up.

Try to love someone a little more instead of being so irritated as to why you are not doing what you feel you need them to do.  Process your own frustrations in a different space.  Give yourself new tools of learning to communicate your needs.   Don’t beat up those you love most.  Cherish them.

“Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.” Proust.

Encourage the ideals that we all share with those we hold most dear, let us say today.Gratitude #LoveLand101

We have —

Peace on earth.
Freedom of expression.
Love in our hearts for our neighbors.
and be in service to each other to bring a brighter day.

Hold this in your heart as you move through the days ahead, repeat often and with much joy and share as often as possible.

Today and everyday.

Lots of Love,

Melanie
