"My Son Loved this City and this City Killed my Son.... What is it going to take?"

Her cry is all of our cry. "Enough."

Her pain and heartbreak is all of our our pain and heartbreak.

"the system continues to fail black people. it will continue to fall you..."

No more.

We will reconnect with our neighbors. We will get out into our communities, away from the telvison and phones and celebrate our unity. We will not allow  our hearts have this moment to reset and bend toward love.

We hear this cry. We hear this cry. We hear this cry. We will reach out with understanding. We will connect to our humanity. We will stand together and take action and be united.

First we grieve. We grieve for all senseless loss we are witnessing. We grieve for this woman and for all of us.  Heart broken.

May all energies transform and may someway a miracle befall this situation. May we all be guided to peace filled action and love and nourishment for justice moving forward in all of our communities.

In Pursuit of Peace. Happy Memorial Day!


Today and everyday we honor those who are giving and have given the ultimate sacrifice toward justice and peace in service to freedom and justice for all.

Here's to our brave and courageous troops doing the job assigned them by our country, a country of "we the people" holding the candle of possibility, holding the space for a world where there is no war, where we take care of each others hearts and souls and bodies in a practice of humanity.

Wishing all our Veterans a beautiful Memorial Day and Beyond!

Deepest Thanks and Gratitude.





We honor the pursuit of peace on earth with this affirmation.

PEACE

Peace comes from knowing peace
Love comes from being Loving
Gifts come from wholly giving

In this light
Peace becomes
My deepest brilliance
Glowing brightly

Step not timidly on the path
Flow forward
Fully
Alive
And
Alight

Peace is mine
My calling card
Falling with me
Radiating through me

Blossoming all around me
Witnessing what I have done
Peace realized

I wake
Hearing the bluebirds of the Angels
Joining in the dance of Love
Free

I own my state of peace

In grace


Love and Grace and Wisdom in the days and weeks ahead. Thank you!!

Forgiveness, Grace and the Way of Connecting to the Heart: Mels Love Land Sunday Love Talk

Mels Love Land Sunday Love Talks takes on Forgiveness and adds a little insight into how love and forgiveness flow between the two.

Before you listen in. Take a moment to enter and awaken a level of forgiveness you have to this point not thought possible. Take a moment to drift into that deeply personal space of your heart. Take this moment to say, “I’m sorry” for any wounds inflicted; for the fallout (literally) and for any ways we have, in our actions overlooked the basic tenants of humanity.

Lets together deeply connect to the space beyond all sorrow and trauma and heartache diving into the waves of forgiveness allowing the gentle washing away of all that burdens our minds.  Let’s connect to our loving center and imagine a world of love and possibility and freedom. Imagine those who come to mindsight joining you in celebration and declare all that was complete and healed and whole.  Reconnect to your loving center and bow into your soul before all that is and become a new wave of forgiveness; allow this wave of forgiveness to caress whoever has come to mind that needs this wave of love, allow this wave of love to flow freely from center and watch it embrace those in need and those we cherish and those we don’t know and the world at large, flowing into the ethers of the universe. 

Rest and relax and know all is well and all will be well and return once again to center, the source of all the love there ever was, all the miracles that are possible, and all the joy that resides in the purest laugh of the smiling heart.

Become present to the beat of your heart and allow that beat to guide the way to deeper and deeper levels of peace.

Come back to center.  Say Thank You.*** Enjoy this talk on Forgiveness that is an important practice in the embodiment of love in action...





Forgiveness does not mean forgetting it means transforming any anger and releasing that which can no longer torture us collectively and individually into the nothingness from whence it came. That which is in the past is an illusion, it doesn’t exist, and can no longer hurt us. Forgiveness means honoring yourself, your history, and those who have touched your life by living yours in full emblem of the truest space of a Loving heart.

From this embraced forgiveness comes the complete Freedom of thinking that is the foundation of strength and joy. In choosing to forgive and honor each other with Love; to celebrate our humanity and to remember all of us is each of us, the world gains in its peace quotient, which should never be taken for granted. 

In this forgiving practice of humanity Love expands beyond the beyond.  If this speaks to you take this moment to seize the opportunity to imagine a vision of the future where peace flourishes and everyone on the planet knows Love.

This is a form of Love as philosophy, not used to circumvent any feelings or bypass anything just a sharing of principle as a practice of discipline to allow the truth through forgiveness to be revealed where the illu-sions creep in.  Loving is filling your heart with love in open hearted grace ourselves overflowing with childlike wonder of life filled with blazing possibility.   

Forgiveness is the home of miracles. Perception stands corrected in this Loving sight, and what was meant to curse has come to be a blessing. “Each lily of forgiveness offers all the world the silent miracle of love. And each is laid before the Word, upon the universal altar to Creator and creation in the light of perfect purity and endless joy.” ACIM

May love surround you and work through you. May you offer your heart to the service of love. May you find peace today and everyday. May blessings and peace flourish in your presence.

Love Talks. Sunday Sessions. Barbra Streisand and Robert Rodriguez at the Tribeca Film Festival

An original is an original.

No one can or ever will capture a song's heart like the incomparable Barbra Streisand. This definitive performance of My Man from the feature film version of Funny Girl is a sizzler that lead me to dream my life into the entertainment business.



Some days I hear "My Man" Some days I hear another song made famous by Ms. Streisand. I treasure her message and the recognition of the truth of Funny Girl, she plays the legendary Fanny Brice who falls in love with a gambler. Barbra Streisand won the Academy Award for Funny Girl, the William Wyler directed performance, would be the first and only tie in Academy history. Barbra shared the award with Katharine Hepburn for her performance in The Lion in Winter... which is super cool for your first Oscar.

You might say I was weaned on "My Name is Barbra." Happy Days Are Always Here Again when she is singing. In my teens I became hooked on her movies, every performance was a master work.

I don't know how many people's happy place is (with Barbara) on the boat scene from Funny Girl singing Don't Rain On My Parade, but I am proud to number myself in its mystique. Her legendary "white microphone" incident on Oprah's Show is told with a fans knowing smile that rejoices in the celebration of an artist who knows how to deliver.

Ms. Streisand is a role model in always standing for what she believes in with grace whatever the platform of her expression. Her gifts are legendary, how she uses them extraordinary.

At the recent Tribeca Film Festival Barbra Streisand sat down with Robert Rodriquez to share a bit about her upbringing, her philosophy and her deeply inspirational career. She talked in depth about her work on her upcoming autobiography, some of her philosophies of work and life ie. 'thoughts create form or as George Bernard Shaw wrote thoughts transcend matter. Each thought is an act of creation. Make it count. 

Barbra Streisand is an inspiration to so many and while she mentioned the spotlight is not her favorite space to occupy, we are all the better for her turns in its light.  Enjoy some Mel reflections from the evening below on SoundCloud. ❤️✨
