Mels Love Land #Next100 Day 29 - Love and Fearlessness Bare Witness to Soul Force


Waitress. Katsuya, Los Angeles, CA 

When Love and Fearlessness meet you bare witness to the revolution of your heart. The timeless intersection between these two allows as Socrates said for "the outer and inner man to be as one" striking your unique and perfect note.

In this space of human destiny where our perfect tone vibrates in harmony with our being the entire universe rejoices animating the universal heavenly symphony, this sound of our celestial DNA to move as Wordsworth said in one society in service to our deepest most authentic self.

When these notes join together the stirrings of our collective heart become a radiating social force bringing each of our inner struggles and personal journeys into the larger unfolding experience, giving context and allowing nature to enact its most beautiful elegant outflow beyond the gravity of our day to day.

6th Annual Mels Love Land #Next100 Day 28 on SoundCloud - Just Breathe.

A little bit of rambling love on soundcloud and kindness from the City of Angels. Todays reminder in our #Next100 is to breathe into all that is. All the changes. All the circumstances. All that you see. No matter what comes forward we have the will to make shifts and act with grace.

Love, Mel 

ps. Love and Gratitude for all.  So many people have helped me in my life. One of my favorite things has always been the deep knowledge that I could always “count on the kindness of strangers.” How wonderful to know that you can rely on loved ones as well. I love the way receiving and giving support is in balance and love walks in everyday.

Mels Love Land #Next100 Day 22 - Is it Kind? Is It Loving? Is It Just?

There are a lot of conversations we could be having about how tricky these situations we find ourselves in is, or how caught up we are in our feelings, and spending energy explaining everything, but, the only conversation we need to have is 

‘Am I being loving? Am I being compassionate? Am I being kind? Am I being of service?’ 

If the answer you get back is 'no.' Take a moment to consider the possibility today is a day for a shift. Stand in the light of your authentic self in the seat of your soul’s code and be more loving today than you were yesterday. (we are nothing at Mels Love Land if not consistent) 

Keep up your practice. Your Commitment. Your Self Love. Stay on the course to a new day.

Possibilities for change are endless. Miracles are our birthright and now is the time to be invested in love.

This is the space of remembering 'we are powerful beyond measure. ' You get to choose in each moment to be kinder, to be more loving, to enrich your life and those around you with your actions. Be someone today who demonstrates all the greatness available in each moment. Be someone today who people are encouraged to be around. Be someone today who is a light for others to connect to and surround and support.

Mels Love Land #Next100 Day 20 - Be grateful for all your Friends Soundcloud Audio Love Talk

Our old friends peace love justice and activism meets our new friends Social Justice Warriors in Today's Mels Love Land on Soundcloud.  I didn't incorporate this quote (but I wish I had)

Theologian James Dunn spoke of --
the humility that befits all humanity
the hurt that afflicts every heart
and the hope that comes with community

an old theme in American history.

there is strength in the company of others

from "we the people" to "we shall overcome."

to quote Bill Moyers --

"there is much to repair. if we have the will for it."

Thanks for being a part of my 6th Annual Mels Love Land #Next100 community. If you feel inspired to get involved or to share, go for it. I look forward to hearing stories of more strength and love and compassion and courage in action in the coming year!




Love, Mel.

What Do I Do Now? Where Do We Go From Here? The Greatest Power Mels Love Land #Next100 Day 17


Many of us are asking this question... "What Do I Do Now?"

Can't help but be reminded of these words from Teddy Roosevelt “Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.” 



Be brave, little by little, in your center, no loathing, no arrogance all love, action by action, thought by thought.  Take a stand for what you know to be true.  If you are a witness to unkindness, injustice, inequality, in-nanity, let your heart share a message of truth in gentle compassion for what needs to be shared in the most loving way.

When one of us is disparaged, all of us suffer.  Each slight is registered and When the sword is thrust at someone it falls on us.  This is the time to stand in love and to release what no longer needs to chain our tomorrows.

Life is a gift of being awake.  Awake to bare witness and to remember the truth.  Allow your relationships to be free of the past, allow the present to be something miraculous.  Allow this moment to live and breath in all its glory simply by remembering the truth.  Love does not change.  There is not love in categories. Love makes right action.

The greatest power we have to change a situation or circumstance is in direct correlation to our level of accepting it exactly as it is.

There is a great quote from ACIM "The holiest of all spots on earth is where an ancient hatred has become a present love."  

Hatred can not exist in the field of Love. Love changes every equation and equals itself or is like itself.  Let love lead the way.  


Through our relationships in compassionate action nurtured with love come the inspirations of our tomorrows, not of the past, in the present free from the disappointment of past memories.

Today let us be thankful. We have come to gentler pathways and to smoother roads. There is no thought of turning back, and no implacable resistance to the truth.



Experience a shift in your perceptions, make a commitment to compassion allowing your heart to dance in full display of your soul's code.   


Coming from a news background I get irritated when I read or watch the current state of what is considered news and the exchange of information where open letters become the basis of reality to cement a position rather than enliven action to make change. I am tired of the spirit of journalism being reduced to opinions and statements based on beliefs that have long ago been lost in the evolution of humanity.

"No job is too big or too small for God to use. You have the unlimited power of the universe within you and so does everyone else. It's nothing to take personal credit for, nor anything to feel guilty about. Our real power emanates from a force that's in us but not of us." — Excerpted from A Course in Miracles

Mels Love Land #Next100 Day 15 Consider the Possibility There is Another Way to Look at Every Situation

In a loving practice designed for growth and healing and stretching the boundaries of everyday there are questions that come up. Questions about our humanity. Questions about hate and fear. Questions about what love can do. Questions that look to investigate and understand and bring light.  

One question that comes up frequently 'What does considering the possibility there is another way' mean?

These words are the practice which is at the heart of Mels Love Land. "Considering the possibility there is another way to look at any situation with love" is the discipline of seeing with the heart, listening to the truth beyond the visual representation. It is a commitment to checking in and embracing love in all its glory.

It is a practice of learning to love yourself first and make that loving POV a way of radiating outward into the world. It is a way of being with seemingly insurmountable circumstances and taking the steps forward anyway.

Those of us who are lovers and miracle workers and prayer practicers, that clear energies and connect to the 'chi' universal life force continue to practice the sacred mystical arts in full knowing that each effort is its own reward in turning the tides of a self-loathing so deep and ingrained in the shadows of our humainty that it projects outward into the 'reality' of our lives in diverse and destructive ways, swaying activites toward fear filled apathy that keeps us in a mild river of misery.

















When your heart is alternately breaking and expanding with equal beats in a rhythm of truth you are fully alive, bearing witness to the events of our days. You are into each present moment awash in the exercise of love.

You can repeat something it does not make it true.  Beyond all of the judgments and fear and hatred and blind loyalty and hopes that someone will save us is our inner powerful still small voice that knows what we need to look at in our lives, what actions need to be taken, what world comes into being with all that happens that there are the commitments we make to show up for someone. This is a choice. A privilege. A way of being in a very human world. There are actions we know we need to make for ourselves and those actions lead to the person we are, that remains unchanged, that stands in the vulnerable light of humanity and knows the care and consideration of being held and seen and supported and free from oppression and fear and joy and love and wildness and all that appears in these spaces. On the surface it may be a time of truly devastating tragedies and deep ungrounded indulgence bringing up all our worst fears, numbing us into inaction because what was will not be what is. Tempting us to fall asleep. On a deeper level we are being called and encouraged to move into the adult conversation, to open up wide to the great resourcefulness and incredible displays of true inner spirit we are longing to reclaim. Like Mark Antony urging mourners into action over the body of Julius Caesar "If you have tears, prepare to shed them now." It most certainly won't be the last. But, remember these are adult tears. Propelling action. Finding solutions. Telling the truth.

Within the heart’s fire lives the passion of our connection to source to be thankful and express and receive love. It is also an emotional state of being that says ‘I revere the fire that forged these relationships and I give thanks for the love that endures through life.'

This energy of love's purest grace is made manifest through our soul's code working in concert with our nature.  How we cultivate this powerful force of our being relates the ease at which we move through the world lending our imprint. Cultivating inspiration is a practice like anything else. Acting on the inspiration where the miracles happen.

Hate is strong. Love is stronger. In Love all things are possible.

Consider the possibility you are different than your feelings, your heart is open to understanding a situation from a different vantage point, that you can disagree with the way someone wants to move ahead but can agree on the destination and spend your days in active pursuit of love and justice and equality and nourishment and education and leaving every situation better than you found it.

Love is the way.

To echo the inimitable words of Rihanna w/ Jay-Z (even though her tour ticket sales are down)  "When the sun shines...We'll shine together. Told you I'd be here forever... Said I'd always be your friend... Now that it's raining more than ever... You can stand under my umbrella. You can stand under my umbrella."

To any problem perceived or otherwise Love remains the answer.

Steadfast Love Endures Forever. Mels Love Land #Next100 Day 13

The Bible says in Psalm 107:1
Let today be the end of any story that no longer serves.  'Let it go' doesn’t just need to be a song that every three year old in the world sings.  

Be someone today who releases judgment who perceives no differences.  Separation is something man-made to designate claim to something.

Surprise yourself.

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


In our loving center, peace reigns no matter what.  

Either way it is a story you are telling yourself so if you feel stressed about a story you are telling yourself.  Think differently.  Be different in our outlook and ideas.


Your practice of love, standing for the truth and remembering love remains the answer is a choice that lives in our hearts when we remain steadfast in out authentic expression amplifying our soul force, alive and awake within the imaginal possibility of each moment.


Take a new look, expand your breathing and see things differently, granting yourself freedom from your judgment.  Enjoy all the joy and happiness that fills your being with each rise and fall of your chest.


Sometimes when I want to remember and experience this kind of loving freedom, I take to singing a song, sometimes Kelly Clarkson like “I’ll spread my wings and learn how to fly,” 

Whatever works for you to 'let love flow' is perfect.

(Another good one is Carrie Underwood’s Jesus Take The Wheel.) Almost any song that brings you joy will be wonderful.


May you feel connected, comforted and full of peace
Today. Now. Always.
May your steps be light and bright and full of Love.

Just for today let me perceive no differences.
Just for today let me recognize the truth in every situation.
Let me return home to love in peace of mind body and spirit.

Let me allow love to lead the way.

Love, Mel
