Flight of the Soul

What More Loving Act is There than to Declare before the world, our God and those folks in it, our connection, our purpose and our intentions? It is a choice to love.

A new world of freedom and ideas and light and power.

If you haven’t read the Declaration of Independence it is always a great place to start as we celebrate its signing, and honor the roots of our democracy. It is an ever beautiful reminder of the return to the ground of our beginnings.

Fly Eagle Fly America

It marks the first step in the process that would become an American Revolution – the declaration of our intent to be free of tyranny. It was the first step in a process of war with England that would birth a nation out from under the oppression of a King. No one knew if democracy would work, or if it was even possible. What they did know, to declare freedom in this way was considered treason and was punishable by being ‘drawn and quartered.’ I won’t bore you with the gross details but suffice it to say it was a horrible way to die.

I imagine folks were afraid, but, When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth…”  This radical step required courage of new thinking, it required working together in unanimous consent and it required all of the horrible events and sacrifices necessary to rise up and defeat a mighty King. Most importantly it required the elegance of imagination. Imagining a world pursuing happiness, representing values of and by the earth and it required persistent loving action after the initial declaration, a belief in a new order for the ages. The seeds planted on this day we continue to grow in our daily care and work to realize the imagination of a new way. 

A TESTAMENT TO LOVE

Make today a testament to our ancestors, to the meaning of July 4th and all it represents. May you be well and feel ready and encouraged to lay down your own declaration of independence in celebration of your dreams for a new day. May the blessings of summer abound as July stretches into the grace of possibility. May you stay connected to your loving heart as you act with kindness in total support and the inspiration of your deepest inner connected power. Have fun out there and today, may you remember the power of everyday love to connect to each other and a world of peace in pursuit of happiness and justice for all.

Love, Mel

Our Awakeness is in direct Connection to our level of Authenticity.

#WhyWeSpeakofLove

… Give me excess of it; that, surfeiting, the appetite may sicken, and die.”

Love is the nourishment of the soul.

Shakespeare delivering the best and the worst of it. For me, there is a soundtrack ever playing along to my life, I cherish the way it serves my soul and lightens my mood and feeds whatever is calling to be brought forward.

“Each day is a blessing; each day is an opportunity for us to realize miracles and be the miracle workers God created us to be. Each surrendered thought helps us to find the answers to all our questions in the perfect peace of God.” — Marianne Williamson – –

As the sun rises on each new day, it is a magnificent opportunity to recenter ourselves. It is absolutely a new day for each of us to rocket into the spirit of our ancestors and get into the birth of a new nation…

A nation where every child is fed — Where we take responsibility for what is ours to own; Where we express the same interest in a murder trial, a cat video, a television show, that we do in voting for our representatives; Where we go out of our way to be kind to someone we have never been kind to before; Where we remember we are human and as such make all the mistakes that we tend to point out and make fun of in others.

This just might be the day where everything changes and you experience the most phenomenal version of yourself.

I hope so.

Enjoy today and everyday.

lots of love,

Melanie

 

America Ferrera Ted Talks The Power of Self Love

“My identity is not an obstacle — it’s my superpower,” says America Ferrera onstage at TED2019.

Loving Yourself. Expanding Your Field of Possibilities and Living Authentically. Every career in the arts is full of tough lessons, as by its very nature you are inviting judgement in one form or another. America Ferrera describes her efforts to make a name for herself, everything people say “You’re too fat,”  “too short,” “too this, to that.”

Her first break in Patricia Cardosa’s Real Women Have Curves operated on two levels as a ‘discovery’ and an ‘anthem’ for all the women who would follow in America’s footsteps, ebmracing their bodies, living lives of grace and purpose and love without having to apologize. Ms. Ferrara has many credits since her feature film debut and has represented herself as a woman of accomplishment and integrity. Every life involves an ever unfolding understanding and growth and support, learning and relearning, coming to mastery of the soul’s code for this life time in the vehicle we are given, the body.

Her TED talk delivers a heart coming to terms with story, authenticity and loving.

Ferrera co-founded HARNESS with her husband, Ryan Piers Williams, and Wilmer Valderrama and is a constant activist for human rights.

Black is the beginning, the source, the before and the after, the Alpha and the Omega. . . . Shamans taught me that black is the color of the west on the medicine wheel, the direction linked to earth, the female body, introspection, change, death and intuition.” —Connections

Wisdom
The term is Satyagraha (a name Gandhi invented meaning “adherence to truth”) it seeks to eliminate antagonisms without harming the antagonists themselves and seeks to transform or “purify” it to a higher level. A euphemism sometimes used for Satyagraha is that it is a “silent force” or a “soul force” (a term also used by Martin Luther King Jr. during his famous “I Have a Dream” speech). It arms the individual with moral power rather than physical power. Satyagraha is also described as a “universal force,” as it essentially “makes no distinction between kinsmen and strangers, young and old, man and woman, friend and foe.”
