Flight of the Soul

When I started 100 days of love and inspiration it was for one reason, to complete a promise.  I had resisted but I kept hearing

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.

Now.  93 days in I have experienced the miracle.  Sitting in a bar in Los Angeles meeting with a client putting the finishing touches on a journey of self revealing story telling I heard it – “At the center of my being is love.”  She had come to the truth and when she said it I got the chills, which is my reaction when someone shares a deeply held truth.  At the center of our being is love.  It is the beginning and end of everything.

Our actions and thoughts always have consequences. Make your thoughts and actions count.  Make them Loving. Look at what you are plugging into, what you are putting your energy towards and from what space in your being it emanates.  Is it from your head or your heart? Is it fear or is it Love? Is it bringing you peace or making you crazy? When the scripture says “Pride goes before destruction, and a haughty spirit before a fall.” It speaks directly to the emotions that create the rubble of our lives. Let go of the pride and fear and ask yourself “If I look at this situation with Love — what is the truth?”

Develop a trinity of Love. Allow patience acceptance and serenity to flow through you, offering the cornerstone in your psyche necessary for forgiveness and acceptance creating sustained inner peace nourishing every aspect of your being.

This form and practice of heart centered compassionate positioning around an issue is an open source in constant connection to your highest self. Compassionate positioning means creating a way through the darkness where you are able to be in a space of compassion and Love and look into the eyes of those who are suffering and feel their suffering without losing your center. When you know your own center, you are in stillness with the truest sense of your being allowing you to understand in every situation the space you are holding, and from that space you remember your job is to extend Love. You are not taking on another’s karma, you are merely dealing with your own, and in your knowing of this one detail, you allow other people to grow into their knowing.

Any student of history will tell you that America is made up of the most diverse collection of races, religions, beliefs and peoples. Why? America was the new land, holding the promise of a new age, it remained the last melting plot available on our precious planet to leave behind the oppressions of tyranny. But, as anyone who has ever had to face their demons or “train their dragon” will tell you, running from your fears or the fears of the collective does not make them go away. Fears exist to be met and faced and understood so they can be freed from ruling our unconsciousness behaviors.

Because we live in the land of the free and the home of the brave does not mean we do not have to practice what we preach, that we are not suffering from the afflictions of humanity, that we didn’t murder, and oppress, and cheat and steal, that we didn’t make decisions that were based in personal fears.  Freedom is a discipline we apply everyday because every man brings with him and plays host to his own terrors projecting those terrors into the consciousness of a society. It is each individuals personal journey to transcend beyond these lower thinking forms exercising bravery in the quest to be free, rising above the battlefield and baring witness to the truth.

While our history has blemishes that we continue to atone for; the slaughter of the Native Americans, the entitled slavery of a beautiful race of people, women’s suffrage, civil rights, bank oligopoly, corporate raiding, seething greed, there is one thing that remains constant — faith in the “better angels of our nature.” A space where whatever unjust, not right minded human afflictions are taking place that we are willing to see the truth and hold the space for new possibilities, to look at things in a different way, to argue yes, but then to see the light and be a clear and present source and beacon of truth so this mass collection of “discordant elements” as William Wordsworth stated could “move in one society.” One society embracing each others differences in love and opening to the highest possibilities of peace for all humanity.

Getting a little biblical (and who doesn’t love the bible)– from the Sermon on the Mount. “Therefore everyone who hears these words of Mine and acts on them, may be compared to a wise man who built his house on the rock. And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew and slammed against that house; and yet it did not fall, for it had been founded on the rock.”

You can build your house on the rock of truth or the sand of your fear.  We are all blessed with a choice.

Lots of Love,

Melanie

What do Epiphanies have in common?

They are openings in the chaotic projection of daily life.  They are awakenings to the truth of the authentic self.

As the world makes a shift
We need a space to remember

Great moments happen in the instant of saying yes. Remain awake with me to the deeper truth where bliss rains.

Transformation and the ascension of the soul is  a universal experience where the truth lives through the story

As Joseph Campbell talks about the most powerful story you will ever tell is the life you are living.

Interconnected

Getting bare

Loving everything.

Being grateful for what you have, carrying the torch of possibility by being willing.

Change your language with love and change the conversation.

Lighten up.
Love your story
Live the magnificence of who you are.

Live your story and love the future.

With Heart.

Willing to suspend the limitations to create an opening that brings enlightenment and shifting

Fed by the season
Reveal
Nourished
In the natural order with what is happening

Working with the natural rhythms of the universe

Having fun

Enjoying the newness of now.

smiles,

Melanie

Break open your personal self
to taste the story of the nutmeat soul.
These voices come from that rattling
against the outer shell.
The nut and the oil inside
have voices that can only be heard
with another kind of listening.
If it weren’t for the sweetness of the nut,
the inner talking, who would ever shake a walnut?
We listen to words
so we can silently
reach into the other.
Let the ear and mouth get quiet,
so this taste can come to the lip.
Too long we have been saying poetry,
talking discourses, explaining the mystery outloud.
Let us try a dumb experiment.

 

Rumi had it down, ‘explaining the mystery outloud’ allowing that inner expression to radiate outward and let it flow with the rich nourishment of source.

Take today (and every day) to enjoy the dumb experiment in being loving.  Take no prisoners in your efforts at being Love.

 

Enjoy.

Lots of Love,
Melanie

“The world is too dangerous for anything but truth and too small for anything but love”  William Sloane Coffin, Jr. chaplain of Yale University

I strongly hold you in my heart and soul.
breathing in and out of my heart bringing out the love – radiating
You are inspiring me, to face more of myself.
 
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.
 

New International Version (©1984) Ephesians 4:15 >>  Instead, speaking the truth in love, we will in all things grow up into him who is the Head, that is, Christ.

Stand on the grounds in which you know.
as the bible says ‘Blessed are those who have faith who can not see.’
The physical eyes don’t always represent the truth.
Standing on what you know to be true
There is no such thing as faithlessness. Faith is an aspect of consciousness
 
Power within the realm of our identifiction with the spirit.
The realm of true power and love.
 
We are heir to the world in which we identify
 
Enlightenment is that which is of the body and the other world. Jesus lived on the earth but thought the thoughts of heaven. Heaven and earth
Inhabit our bodies and our minds are not at the effect of the mortal illusion
To the awareness of oneness. The truth of all things. That transforms the mortal plane.
 

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

Look at everything and you will see there is love.

Melanie

The divine friendship

Entertain that Mutual evolution  
Enjoy the Support of each others
soul full journey
into
Higher purpose
 
I sit opposite you and I am taken over

Life becomes now
In your presence
I feel contained
This is a first
In the pantheon of emotional connection
And attachment
I don’t know what to do
I am not sure how to take the steps forward
and, yet, I do
 
I am opening myself up to more and more
experiencing and receiving love
I wish for it to flow through
Wrap its way around me
Enter into me
And give over to every part of that other space
I join with you
I live through you
Your light guides me with every action I take
In this space of total love and compete acceptance
I take every step forward
Necessary for my development
Living within my heart space
And entering the long distance romance of eternity and the instant

Enjoy each other. Today and everyday.

lots of love,

 

Melanie

What story are you telling yourself right now? If it is something less than a grand magnificent story about how amazing you are and that your needs are important. It is time to change it.

You are not your circumstances. You are full potentiality. You are full possibility. You are who you are. Be that. Today and every day. Share that with yourself and others.

As Oprah said “your life on earth expands exponentially when you can find a way to give what you have to somebody else.”

Give the gift of love to someone today.

lots of Love,

Melanie

Love transcends every faith and spiritual background and to my mind even those atheist’s out there can agree on the language of the heart. We get it like we get that the Grinch’s heart grows at the simplest kindness of a small child, the way Scrooge comes to understand a life of giving is a life worth living, and the way that openness creates limitless opportunity and closing the heart creates separation. We may not have any idea how Love works as love education has been woefully lacking and there is no instruction manual of Love. But we live in loves power’s everyday. It is time to give Love some air, some time in the sun.

Enjoy today in Love.

There are a lot of things we want to happen in our life. Ideas and opportunities are always rushing towards us.

A loving practice greases the wheels.  Understanding how to deeply receive what someone is offering brings you into the heart of every matter.

I have loved a lot of people in my life and so many people have loved me. Until I started practicing love as an unconditional expression of energetic joy teaching myself  how to love myself without reserve, without condition to experience the fullness and deepness of giving love in truth as a meeting place and a space of deepening was not possible without prejudgment and defensiveness, I was not living.

I have lost people I have loved. I have given my heart and had it broken. Many times. Each occurrence providing a new level of faith in that eternal every flowing inner space of true love at the source of all things in complete expression of giving and loving and playing.

It always starts quietly with no noise or fan fair. The echoes of the truth. Make no mistake about it. It gets louder and louder if not listened to.

Simple questions…

Will I be someone today who is a joy to be with, to be around, will I be open and loving and filled with light… light enough to hold space for whatever darkness I might encounter?

Will I brighten the worlds I enter and the lives that cross my path and leave behind a heart space that is better for my having been there?

I have seen the beauty of a world in love. I have seen the world free of its shame and all its glory and gotten stronger with each experience and each encounter.  “Vision merely awaits our ability to see in every life in every breath with love.”
Wishing you so much love, today and everyday.

Let love be an antidote to the expression of fear that lives and breathes in the world.

Interrupt the pattern with the conviction of love.

The courageous thing to do is to reach across the divide and make an effort with love.

There’s a saying that comes up “would you rather be right or do you want to be happy”  and  from ACIM “You can have a grievance or you can have a miracle, both are not possible.”  You choose.

Get inspired by this powerful reminder that ALL of humanity is connected.  There is no separation.

Get into the spirit of what Love can do to melt hearts and remind us that no matter what the conflict or difference there is connection, understanding and love.
