Day Fifty One – Love in Action

posted by Melanie Lutz

Get out there today and be loving.  Not tepidly, but with complete loving abandon to the point where someone says “What’s got into you?” so you can say “Everything loving.”

Take this breath to feel what everything loving means.  Take this moment to represent a space in the world that asks nothing, and heals by its very nature.

Love is meant to be given without condition to those we meet and those we spend our sleeping and waking hours with.

Love works miracles.  End and beginning of every story.  Connect with the most nourishing experience of life fully lived, the loving expression of all that you are in action. Being loving. Giving and receiving and expanding your fullness with each and every moment.  Present in the purpose of divine presence.

Love in action  is a complete expression of all that is.

Many Blessings and Lots of Love,

Melanie

I have found the paradox, that if you love until it hurts, there can be no more hurt, only more love.

Day Fifty – The Garden of Love

posted by Melanie Lutz

There is a garden growing and flourishing brilliantly within the ground of your being utilizing divine intelligence symbiotically blossoming in service to the highest expression of who you are. This garden is nourished by Love.

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.

 

My hearts been broken in so many different ways there remains only the ache of love.

Today is the day to remember to tend to your garden.

Enjoy!

lots of Love,

Melanie

 

PS.  As an aside, in researching the Garden of Love, I came upon two pieces I was before today, unfamiliar with.  The Garden of Love is a poem about sexuality written by William Blake and the US Post Office commissioned a stamp series of the same title.

Everyone Loves Love — even the Post Office.

Here’s what the USPS site says about these love stamps:

“Working with art director Derry Noyes, award-winning illustrator José Ortega created an abstract garden of bright flowers, a butterfly, a strawberry, and doves, interlaced with vines that run from one stamp to another. Each prominent element of the design is in the shape of a heart. The deep blue background is reminiscent of a brilliant summer sky. The word “Love” sits atop each stamp.

Ortega said, “Garden of Love depicts the abundance of life, its generosity, whose spirit is to be shared by all its creatures. Love’s definition is broader than romantic love. Love is that colorful, full feeling you get when you enjoy being a part of and sharing in the generosity of life.”

Forty Nine – Jesus Take The Wheel

posted by Melanie Lutz

When my friend and I are having a particularly hard time we call the other and start singing a lyric from Carrie Underwood’s song and we smile and laugh and we feel better.

Jesus take the Wheel is the only thing to do when there is nothing else to do.  Give it over.  Make a decision today to surrender and let Jesus take the Wheel.

Have a great one!

lots of love,

Melanie

Day Forty Eight – Love Who You Are

posted by Melanie Lutz

You are not trying to be any one else, you are living your life as an expression of love for who and what you were put on the planet to do.  This breath represents the fullness of all that you are, every cell of your being alive and awake to who and what makes your heart beat down to the cellular level ingrained in the codes of your DNA.

Appreciate the amazing magnificence of all that you are and all you were put here on the planet to do.

Love. Yourself. With wild abandon and cherish the moods and rhythms of your sacred sounds.  There is only one of you.  Complete and healed and whole and in full possession of unending joy, peace, love and presence of self.

Experience all of you and say Thanks God for who you are.  Exactly as you are.

Take that person into the world and celebrate each step, each encounter and each expression of your truest self, fully revealed and alive and awake in each moment.

If you get hung up on any part of remembering to love who you are, ask yourself the beautiful question “Why Not take all of me?” and enjoy Willie Nelson singing All of Me  a song written in 1931 in a decidedly different era…

Why Not?  What do you have to lose?

Why not take a chance on accepting yourself and your way of being as perfectly perfect.

Why not?

AWAKEN

THE INNOCENT GRACE OF BEING

We never know why we are made a certain way. Who’s to say one quality you consider a hindrance isn’t the key to your path through. You never know how the gifts you have been given will be received and to what affect. All you can do is give your gifts freely and openly.

In talking to reporters when Walt Disney opened Disney Land he shared, “It’s something that will never be finished, something I can keep developing and adding to. It will get more beautiful every year. And it will get better as I find out what the public likes.”  The happiest place on earth was built on the spirit of work in progress where adventure unfolded and imagination flourished and the never ending process was cherished.

I gladly give up my fear

I move into eternal joy

Standing in the truth

Balanced and at peace

Returned to full awareness

Celebrating my life

Let my heart rise and flow

expanding through my breath

In its ever radiating glow

Restore my blissful self to its rightful seat

In Love

 Inviting my heart space

to unlock the treasure chest of recognition

Prospering in all ways and means

Revealing what is already mine

In service to my magnificence

Striking a tune the likes of which emanates from my soul

The hum of which cascades ever forward

Gently with force

Exploding the crucible of my being

Once crucified and crushed

Now

Free

In Harmony

With Infinite Love and Gratitude,

Melanie

Forty Seven – Eternal Love

posted by Melanie Lutz

Eternal presence.  The gift of love laid bare.

During this day, remember Love given and experienced endlessly works miracles.

Ephesians 1:4 For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love

This is how we do it.  In thinking with the thoughts of God, the presence of love filled thinking works to unhinge our perceptions.

A shift in perception is the miracle.  See with the eyes of the heart.  Awaken to the truth in love born before time and beyond space.  Never fear.

Love will see you through.

Forty Six – Be Truthful

posted by Melanie Lutz

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

It is a new day.

We are endowed by our creator with certain unalienable rights and as such, there is nothing to be taken for  granted.  Unalienable rights endowed by our creator cannot be taken from us.  Our founders intended to break away from taxation without representation and create something new.

We don’t want to be held captive by any force whether it be a King that represents taxation, news channels that have no objectivity, a loved one who blames us for their heart closing, or our egos that perpetuate any personal imprisonment.  It is time to declare the freedom of this time in this moment.

Open up to the possibilities of the unknown.  Nobody who signed the Declaration of Independence knew that Democracy would work (and some could argue quite strongly that it doesn’t) but the ideals of Freedom and Justice and Happiness and the pursuit of working each day to get it right are worth dying for.

The Declaration of Independence represents a testament to the idea that while all of us have different viewpoints, don’t always get along, get so mad we disagree that we can come together when the cause is dear enough and important enough to hold hands and walk forward into the truth.

Growing up in Pennsylvania had a huge influence over my development and ideas often without my knowing it.  William Penn founded Pennsylvania on the Quaker principles of divine equality of all men, women and children directly influencing the eventual home and spirit of the Congressional Congress telling the King of England to go F – himself.  The principles of freedom from tyranny, the principles of a new order for the ages live and breathe in my heart.

This is a special time in the course of human events and we are blessed to be members of these United States of America and when it is time to speak the truth and remember we are endowed with unalienable rights built into our DNA that all men are created equal, there aint no stopping us.

Hold the truth and have it be self – evident!  Live from that place in your heart and let’s watch a new day unfold.

Get out there and by happy and make our creator proud.

I am honored to have been born and raised in Pennsylvania and will promote the principles that this countries origins and my birthplace represents till I take my last breath.

God Bless America and God Bless us All!!

Lots of Love,

Melanie

Day Forty Five – Go Home

posted by Melanie Lutz

It’s amazing how it’s always all there.

So many cues, clues and symbols. Opening doors into new worlds just waiting. Waiting for the decoding and the processing and the recognition.

Sitting right in front of you. 

With the popularity of Dan Brown novels and all the scholars and resources and the internet you would think it would be easier to get it.

From my own experience it takes help. It takes love and it takes having a decoding moment, that offers the clue, a key stone offering the way to fill in the picture. Like The Miracle Worker exhausting herself to get Helen Keller to connect to some sign and symbol and connection ultimately discovering water would bring the opening.  The effort nearly frustrated and killed both of them, but once the connection was made Helen Keller was able to unlock a way to communicate, open up to new possibilities. Get the bridge out of the darkness and return from the separation of self.

Once you get “water” is this… instinct. feeling. emotion. You can use it to decode all the hidden messages in everything. It is all possible. Getting that first key stone is the hardest as blinders are built into the universal framework but ultimately care and work and faith allows us to see past our clouded and skewed vision.

Elaine Strich had it from her show At Liberty “I am mad as hell that I had to go through what I had to go through to get to what I’ve gotten to.”  And. Here I am. We’ve all gone through what we needed to go through, we’ve seen the outcomes of behavior, we’ve cycled through the disconnection, we see the truth. We know what doesn’t feel warm and friendly, we know what closes our hearts, we know what we need to be. We are not going to be able to hide behind fences, technology, or whatever defenses we imagine will help us, the planetary  population has eradicated that possibility. We are like little rabbits walking into the light for the first time. Realizing how connected we are, realizing there is no one left to squeeze to make a profit, no dumps left to fill. No ways that can’t be inherent in our means. We are interdependent on each other. We are here to help each other.

When we see with love. Life is easier. Love is easier.

Seeing leads to the promised land.

The promised land returns you home.  Every time.  Recognize what is already before you.  Open your eyes as never before and your heart in all ways, and if need be tap the heals of your metaphorical red ruby slippers three times and return home.  Right now.

Enjoy Luther VanDross singing from the soul – a house is not a home and let its spirit move you.

Day Forty Four – So Much Love

posted by Melanie Lutz

News 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

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.

Bring love and more love to your life.

Enjoy the feeling of much love.

so much love.

Melanie

Day Forty Three – Practice Trusting Yourself

posted by Melanie Lutz

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.

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,

 

Melanie

Day Forty Two – Look Out World

posted by Melanie Lutz

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

There is no ‘I’m not ready.’  You have always wanted to take a Dance class.  Sign Up.  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.

Seek not within the world to find your Self. Love is not found in darkness and in death. Yet it is perfectly apparent to the eyes that see and ears that hear love’s Voice. 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
