Let it Be – Day Twelve of #LoveLand101

posted by Melanie Lutz

Celebrate this moment as the beginning of a grand exploration into the meaning and power of Love. You have all the support you need to be all of you. Know you will be guided to the person, place or thing that will serve the needs of your soul. For now, let it be.Melanie Lutz Flight of the Soul #LoveLand101 Lake Shrine

Relax into the truest nature of your being.

No matter what comes forward you can fully trust in and lean on Love and Support that’s there for you. You are perfectly whole and complete now. A perfect reflection of All is One and Love is all there is.

We need look no further than the innate truth written by four lads from England…

When I find myself in times of trouble
Mother Mary comes to me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
And in my hour of darkness
She is standing right in front of me
Speaking words of wisdom, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Let it be, let it be
Whisper words of wisdom, let it be

— The Beatles

The ultimate rememberance that God has it handled that love is your partner and that life unfolds in faith.

Today. Now. Always.

May you feel connected, comforted and full of peace

May your heart open in ways never before possible

revealing the deepest truth of your fullest knowing
Giving you courage, wisdom, strength

Surrounding you with Love to let it be.

smiles,

Melanie

Day Eleven of #LoveLand101 – Live in the Truth

posted by Melanie Lutz

Be willing to have the truth, your truth Lovingly blossom. Keep your eyes attune to the whispers on the wind listening to what’s required for your soul’s growth.  Use your listening heart to uncover the truth in each circumstance.  Let the answer surprise you.  Be curious, take a breath, allow the moment to unfold without pre-conceived ideas.

“How many more times is (fill in the blank and it isn’t pretty) going to happen before I stand up for myself. Before I tell the truth. How many more times will a pattern repeat until I am ready to do things differently?” As Will Rogers said “don’t do the same thing and expect a different result. Do things differently. Get different results.”#LoveLand101 Labyrinth Tuna Canyon City of Angels Melanie Lutz

Do yourself and your community a favor and break the chains of any fear or addiction and remember the truth about who you are and what Love is and means.

Allow something new to take flight.

Flip the switch, ignite the field, walk into the light of truth. Your truth.  As a friend of mine likes to say “don’t settle for the mild river of misery.” Become a tuning device allowing love to flow through you and radiate from you expanding outward without reserve.

May you see with your heart and be able to recognize
the truth in every situation you encounter.

With Infinite Love and Gratitude,

Melanie

Day Ten of #LoveLand101 – Stand for Something

posted by Melanie Lutz

Take a stand in your life and assume a position of strength and love in every encounter.

When you assume a position in your heart standing for the truth, no matter how terrifying, it enables all parties involved in the encounter and drama to be free.  In the light of this kind of truth you bare witness to the magnificence of possibility that is unhinged of the past opening up the world to untold possibility where we are celebrating the power that lives within each of us to rise up.  It is time to take a stand for the person who needs it most.  Yourself.  Demand a little more of yourself today than yesterday.  Remember who you are.  Where you’ve been good you are going to need to be great and where you’ve been unconscious you are going to wake up and take a stand for magnificence.  A rising tide raises all ships is not just a metaphor, it is a deep psychological pattern.

The one thing you can be sure of… the person standing in front of you, driving next to you, working down the hall has experienced, or is experiencing as much trauma as you. Be kind. Be a light so others, our children, our neighbors, our communities, here and across the globe, can rise and shine. Everyday. Fully nourished and safe from suffering.

“A nation reveals itself not only by the men it produces but also by the men it honors and remembers.” John F. Kennedy had it right in his speech celebrating Robert Frost and the arts.

Let’s be remembered for our ability to change with grace to transform our present turmoils into peace on earth.  Let’s get really clear, in remaining passive and asleep in our own lives affects the planet.   We have challenges, for sure, things are breaking apart and falling away… However, it is not a que to give up, when Winston Churchill on the day of the French capitulation said “Let us therefore brace ourselves to our duties, and so bear ourselves that, if the human race lasts for a 1000 years, let them say … “This was their finest hour” he offered a space above the doubt, beyond the uncertainty and bleakness of circumstance to rise into.

Take a stand today and address what needs addressing, celebrate moments of magnificence, individuals of purpose, and every expression of love that you see, encouraging more of that kind of behavior. Uplifting every moment that follows. Leading us into a new era.

May you find the voice of truth in every circumstance allowing you to take a stand for love.

Lots of Love,

Melanie

Day Nine of #LoveLand101 – Let Love, Joy, Laughter Lead the Way

posted by Melanie Lutz

Every breath represents the beginning of a new cycle.  An opportunity to begin again. In each new breath, we get the opportunity to make a commitment to being Loving, creating a complete 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

Life happens one action at a time, one moment at a time.  In each of these, choose love.

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 the blessed interaction of your light and joy and peace.  Pure Love is the full knowing of the truth of your being.  It is showing up to be yourself.

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

Day Eight of #LoveLand101 – Be Committed

posted by Melanie Lutz

The happiness quotient in our life is directly dependent on the promises and commitments we make and break to ourselves.

Don’t be fooled that how you do one thing isn’t how you do everthing.

Making a commitment and sticking to it is the ultimate exercise in loving yourself, in unlearning what you have learned as your way in the world.

When you know in your heart there is an action that needs to be taken, set yourself up for success.  When you make a commitment, gently and with grace honor that commitment.  Do not break promises you make to yourself or those in your life.  Think about your yes.  Think about your no and own it.

When what you see isn’t what you want, it is time to make a commitment to you. To what you want to see. To be the person that you know you were born to be.

Acceptance and serenity is an inside job. It takes a practice. It takes your commitment to show up for yourself.

A commitment to remembering your magnificence brings foward your authentic self, bringing you to the tools necessary to process through what comes up as you step forward increasing your emotional musculature and abilities to handle anything that crosses your path with grace.

Take the hugest step on the path to your most radiant self making Love your bottom line.

When I started my process of reclaiming the truth I started to hear these words.

 
For the next 100 days
I am going to consider the possibility that 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.
 
It did not stop repeating in my head until I started taking action on the message. That action has resulted in a large collection of love based messages. I have considered the possibility there is another way and it is what I live every day of my life. A life that is now filled with an expression of myself that is grounded that resonates with the gravitas of love of everything that comes my way. A life I can be proud of because it is a life that contains self respect and self reliance that I can trust my yes and I can trust my no because I know how to make a commitment and stick to it.

Don’t fall asleep to the truth. The promises you make and break to yourself represent the confidence of purpose that you experience as radiance. Awaken a commitment to loving yourself.

May today’s commitment bring you untold happiness and clarity of integrity.

lots of Love,

Melanie

Day Seven of #LoveLand101 — It’s Not Where You Start. It is Where You Finish.

posted by Melanie Lutz

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…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ps.  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.

King-dom Come…

posted by Melanie Lutz

Victory comes through the dignity and courage of speaking your truth to power.

“Once again we must hear the words of Jesus echoing across the centuries: ‘Love your enemies, bless them that curse you and pray for them that despite fully use you.’ If we fail to do this our protest will end up as a meaningless drama on the stage of history, and its memory will be shrouded with the ugly garments of shame. In spite of the mistreatment that we have confronted we must not become bitter, and end up hating our white brothers. As Booker T. Washington said, ‘Let no man pull you so low as to make you hate him.’ If you will protest courageously, and yet with dignity and Christian Love, when the history books are written in future generations, the historians will have to pause and say ‘There lived a great people – a black people – who injected new meaning and dignity into the veins of civilization.’ This is our challenge and our overwhelming responsibility.” As I took my seat the people rose to their feet and applauded. I was thankful to God that the message had gotten over and that the task of combining the militant and the moderate had gotten over and at least partially accomplished. The people had been as enthusiastic when I urged them to love as they were when I urged them to protest.

As I sat listening to the continued applause I realized that this speech had evoked more response than any speech or sermon I had ever delivered, and yet it was virtually unprepared. I came to see for the first time what older preachers meant when they said ‘Open your mouth and God will speak for you.”  While I would not let this experience tempt me to overlook the need for continued preparation, it would always remind me that God can transform man’s weakness into his glorious opportunity. 

When Mrs. Parks was introduced from the rostrum by E. N. French, the audience responded by giving her a standing ovation.  She was their heroine. They saw in her courageous person the symbol of their hopes and aspirations.

Now the time had come for the all-important resolution. Ralph Abernathy read the words slowly and forcefully. The resolution called upon the Negroes not to resume riding the buses until (1) courteous treatment by the bus operators was guaranteed; (2) passengers were seated on a first-come, first-served basis-Negroes seating from the back of the bus toward the front, whites from the front toward the back; (3) Negro bus operators were employed on predominantly Negro routes. At the words, “All in favor of the motion stand,” every person to a man stood up, and those who were already standing raised their hands. Cheers began to ring out from both inside and outside. 

As I drove away my heart was full. I had never seen such enthusiasm for freedom. And yet this enthusiasm was tempered by amazing self-discipline. The unity of purpose and esprit de corps of these people had been indescribably moving. No historian would ever be able fully to describe this meeting and no sociologist would ever be able to interpret it adequately. One had to be a part of the experience really to understand it.

At the Ben Moore Hotel, as the elevator slowly moved up to the roof garden where the banquet was being held, I said to myself, the victory is already won, no matter how long we struggle to attain the three points of the resolution.  It is a victory larger than the bus situation.  The real victory was in the mass meeting, where thousands of black people stood revealed with a new sense of dignity and destiny.”

Day Six of #LoveLand101 – Forgiveness Creates Peace of Mind

posted by Melanie Lutz

Taking responsibility for your part in any drama that occurs enables a lighten-ing of the grip of blame, leading the way to owning your place in the world allowing forgiveness to flow.

In the midst of your life is a space of stillness. A space where you can hear everything that is in service to a beautiful garden of your being. Living from that space delivers a life to its purpose.  Clearing the hurts and the shame and the attachment to what someone did to you and then explaining how they wronged you for years is the surest way to remaining on the cross of your own personally inflicted crucifixion. Are you ready right now to release yourself by truly allowing God and that universal force of creation to ease the burden by giving it over?  The true joy of each day is waking up in full knowing today is a day where I will live a new day. A magnificent day. A day of absolute love for myself and the world I inhabit.

Detach from the person, object, relationship or circumstance that seems to be causing you troubles, release the thinking that seems to keep you stuck in the drama of the situation and listen for an answer. Remember, stuck is just another word for there is another way. Whether it is to break free from the falseness of anyone or anything that is too small for you, or it is to think Lovingly about the situation presenting and deeply listen to what is in your heart whatever the answer no matter how it sounds because it is your answer, uniquely individualized for your circumstance. Listen as if your life depended on it.

Don’t let other people hook you into their unloving fearful thinking tempting you out of your loving center.  If something sounds judgmental it is. If it sounds nuts. If it feels crazy making. If you feel tense. You got it. When a decision is built on fear “its seeming certainty is but a cloak for the uncertainty it would conceal. It needs irrational defense because it is irrational. And its defense seems strong, convincing, and without a doubt because of all the doubting underneath.

Do not get caught in other people’s insanity, or more importantly, your own. Wash the entire story with Love and bare witness to the truth. When a decision is made in Love doubt ceases. Love brings peace of mind and a certainty of purpose. Move toward that sacred feeling of warmth in the embrace of the truth. Move toward the light of Love.

Don’t be tempted to forget your mission to forgive everyone as you move freely into your own inner peace.  True and complete forgiveness emanates when you make a commitment to forgive and be forgiven.  As ACIM says forgiveness offers everything you need.

Forgiveness is the way you remember nothing is going to harm you.  Give it over and take your place in the land of love.  Accept forgiveness for yourself and everyone.

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 judgements and dramas and struggles.

Take charge of your life.  Take a stand for forgiveness.

May I give up what has happened to me and leap quantum style into forgiveness laying aside blame.

lots of Love,

 

Melanie

Day Five of #LoveLand101 – Shake it Off and Begin Again

posted by Melanie Lutz

Today 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 form which we are moving through in complete connection to our inner Tahiti.

Take today to say this is a new day and I am loving this new way of being loving to myself, 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.

Take today to identify with love and enjoy yourself out there.

lots of love,

 

Melanie

It doesn’t take 40 days wandering around the desert to arrive at a conclusion.  Save yourself the time and the discomfort by opening your heart to the love that is available in this entirely present moment.

Anything that is amazing can happen over a steak dinner.

Live in the power of presence, showing up in the here and now, enjoying each breath as if it represented the birth of something magnificent.
