Day Thirty Seven — Feast on Your Life

posted by Melanie Lutz

In full presence of yourself. Today is the day to feast on 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.

 

–Derek Walcott

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

May you feel connected, comforted and full of peace

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

Day Thirty Six – The Heart of the Matter

posted by Melanie Lutz

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

The more I know, the less I understand
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

The mental attitude of love is something that we must repeat in action to achieve the results 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.

Enjoy!

lots of love,

Melanie

Day Thirty Five – Deliver Your Message

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 wish 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

Day Thirty Four – Recognize What Hurts

posted by Melanie Lutz

Beware an unrecognized belief.  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. 

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

Day Thirty Three – In Love Ment

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 one of my friend’s nine year old son read a card he got from his aunt and uncle for his birthday.  As he was reading the word involvement, in his mind the letters transformed and he say out oud “in-love-ment.”  In Love ment.  Sounds like a great idea to me.

Let’s get involved with more love.  Let’s take today to be loving in every way.

Day Thirty Two – Get the Nerve and Rise Up

posted by Melanie Lutz

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

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.

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.”

Day Thirty One – Count Your Blessings

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.

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

Day Thirty – Forever Thankful

posted by Melanie Lutz

Thanks God for everything!   As Meister Eckhart says “If the only prayer you ever say in your entire life is thank you, it will be enough.”

Thanks be for everyone, everywhere.

Thank you to all who contribute their time and attention and energies to the spirit of our collective connection.

The gifts you have so graciously given are deeply appreciated.

Thank you for all your loving thoughts and Thank you for extending that experience of grace through you with each breath you take.

In short.  Thank you.

May Love land in the deepest spaces of your truest self and may the lightest touch of peace awaken all to your call.

With infinite Love and Gratitude…

Melanie

The book told through a series of letters The Color Purple written by Alice Walker was reformed as a brilliant movie directed by Steven Spielberg and then into a blockbuster Broadway show.  The book starts with the lead character writing a letter to a God outside of herself not understanding why God is not listening to her and moves through a beautiful story of the birth of a soul, ending with a letter to a God within her, and everything she sees, marking the shift in her faith and deeper understanding of the mystery of source.

This idea is powerfully translated in the below song from Broadway Show.

“Dear God, Dear Stars, Dear Trees, Dear Sky, Dear People, Dear Everything…. Dear God.
God is inside of me and everything else, that was or ever will be.”

Day Twenty Nine – Do Your Best

posted by Melanie Lutz

Surprise yourself.

When the best of us is brought forth, it gives us the chance to let go of the worst of us.

It’s time to move into deep respect and appreciation for who you are.   No holding back.   Everything started in love knows how to return to that space.

 Repeat after me…

I will do what is necessary to make any change that will free me of my past judgments and addictions. I am willing to act in my best interests, I am willing to love and forgive myself that I may be in service to those around me.

No matter what divides us… We must remain united in the highest order of freedom. With respect for our differences and find our common humanity. Let’s make practicing 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.

 Have a great one!

love,

Melanie

Day Twenty Eight – Be You

posted by Melanie Lutz

Being precedes the doing.  So today is the day to be in touch with the present.  To love well. To be well.

My first mentor taught me ‘don’t try to be better than your competitors try to be better than yourself.  It brings to mind the quote from my dear friend’s support group for the Mother’s of Down Syndrome children, who has the most beautiful son named Gideon… “normal is a cycle on the washing machine.”

Heck YEAH!  Normality is a function of whoever is the perceiver and has no bearing on the truth.

Who’s to know anything.  Each life touches so many others in so many ways what you think is your greatest challenge can be your greatest blessing.

Who’s to say.

Let’s take today to own all of it.

Be you.  All of you.
Own what you know. 
Know where you stand. 
Share the message when you can.  

In the light of remembering to be all of you.  You might need a little reminder that you don’t do it alone.  Enjoy CeCe Winans and Yolanda Adams singing Count on Me at the Grammy tribute to Whitney Huston… what a song, such a great message and a beautifully produced tribute that resonates…

Count on me through thick and thin
A friendship that will never end
When you are weak I will be strong
Helping you to carry on
Call on me, I will be there
Don’t be afraid
Please believe me when I say
Count on me

smiles,

Melanie
