In Vision and Spirit and Love - The Cat and the Moon by Yeats...

Yeats is such a treasure to the heart and soul.  There is so much love dripping from his words.  Wherever the moon is in its cycle of joy filled expression we can celebrate all the relationships that have brought us here.

So much Love and Storytelling... 

The Cat and the Moon 

The cat went here and there
And the moon spun round like a top,
And the nearest kin of the moon,
The creeping cat, looked up.
Black Minnaloushe stared at the moon,
For, wander and wail as he would,
The pure cold light in the sky
Troubled his animal blood.
Minnaloushe runs in the grass
Lifting his delicate feet.
Do you dance, Minnaloushe, do you dance?
When two close kindred meet,
What better than call a dance?
Maybe the moon may learn,
Tired of that courtly fashion,
A new dance turn.

You Learn By Loving.

Everything happens for a reason isn't just one of those sayings it is a reality in the universal plan.  By standing with love in your heart connecting with each and every heart you meet life unfolds beautifully in peace and grace.

As my Aunt used to say 'So much loving work to do.'

If this seems difficult, ask yourself, what do you have to lose?  A bad attitude, a slumping slump. Always remember as my favorite Eleanor Roosevelt said 'You Can do that which you think you can not do.'   Choose to greet everyone you meet with a loving smile extending blessings and joy and a smile to everyone you meet.

Experience the grace of the world.  Experience the miracles available in each encounter.  Experience the gifts being offered all the time.

"The intuitive mind is a sacred gift and the rational mind is a faithful servant.  We have created a society that honours the servant and has forgotten the gift." Einstein.

Enjoy.

Lots of Love,

Melanie

Soul Force. Rudolf's Steiner's Calendar of the Soul. Aug 11-17

Misteriosamente circondare con il ricordo
Cio che di nuovo ho ricevuto
In preparation for my celebration of love and life and joy it felt like the right time to get back to the soul's code and revisit some Rudolf Steiner's Calendar of the Soul.

Sia l'ulteriore senso sel mio anelare:
Esso e destinato, rafforzandosi, a svegliare le proprie forze
Nella mia interiorita
E divenendo dare me a me stesso

To enwrap the new conceived
in memory's secret folds
be henceforth my firm resolve
Becoming strong it shall awaken
within the forces of my own
and give me, as it grows, to myself


Mystery surrounds the memories
This new that I received
My further sense is the wild longing:
It is intended, reinforcing, and wake up their forces
In my inwardness.

And I became me and myself.

Oh Happy Day.

It is Going to Be A Bright, Bright, Sunshiny Day!

Requests for clarity have been coming up a lot in my travels.  Clarity is as near as our open heart.  Dropping deeply into the wellspring that lies within allowing pathways of light and truth to flow brings us through the door of each and every situation.  Making our declaration 'It's going to be a bright, bright bright Sunshiny Day' states our intention that vision will reflect the expression of the heart with grace.  Love lightens our vision, removing blinders and revealing what is always right before your eyes.  Vision enough for peace.  Clarity of thought and Clear vision guiding the way.  Clear vision that sees the truth in every situation nurtured by love leads to Sunny Days.  Love enough to handle whatever reveals itself in these lights of loving energies.  Love enough to face what must be faced and experiment with the grace of receiving what is there for you to receive, therefore discovering the effortless loving experience of miracles.

In every space of every moment in every heart is the opportunity to experience miracles, miracles within the landscape of nature, our outer and inner nature, but also, the nature of our humanity where love reigns and life flourishes and joy lives in abundance.  

Keep the process of love flowing enjoying the magic of every encounter with an open heart entertaining the remains of each and every day.  



A friend of mine shared a Willie Nelson album of standards, Stardust with me.  The final song in the collection by way of a re-issue bonus is Willie masterly weaving his legacy into Johnny Nash's I Can See Clearly Now .  Thanks to Youtube here's the song that is the inspiration for this post.

When People Are Asking for Help, They are Really Saying, Remind Me How Powerful I am. Let Love Lead the Way... Become a Love Warrior with Mels Love Land - Why Not Now!?

They are really saying.  I have forgotten I have all the answers I would ever need. They are really saying I need some additional love right now so I don't fall into a lower level of thinking.  They are really requesting we believe in them at the core in who they are and all they want to share.  They are really saying, it has been tough for me to get it and I have been trying to achieve something and I am looking for faith in what is to be in my life.

They are not asking for you to do something.  They are asking you to be a space where the joys of sharing and understanding flourish.  Listening beyond the request of help and allowing something to blossom that is truly in support of the hearts purpose is our mission and our blessing to the world.  We are here to be in service to each other, to bare witness to what surrounds us and allow loving energies to flow freely between us and through us and around us.  To give what we have received and to share what we know as soon as we know it and when we don't know something or don't know what to do, to just be there as a loving presence.

It always hits me straight in my open heart that love and kindness bring us home, every time.

Eleanor Porter's book POLLYANNA, about a young girls loving effect and outlook on life no matter what the circumstance is a reminder that we get to choose in every situation.  We can consider the possibility there is another way to perceive our lives.

Why not choose to wash our entire vision with love to experience the truth. Why not?

You don't have to take my word for it.  Love always remains the answer.  From Pollyanna's final words from Eleanor Porter's crafted work.

"Pretty soon, they say, I shall go home. I wish I could walk all the way there. I do. I don't think I shall ever want to ride anywhere any more. It will be so good just to walk. Oh, I'm so glad! I'm glad for everything. Why, I'm glad now I lost my legs for a while, for you never, never know how perfectly lovely legs are till you haven't got them--that go, I mean. I'm going to walk eight steps to-morrow.

"With heaps of love to everybody,
"POLLYANNA."

Be more loving. 
Right now. 
See how the world shifts.
Creating miracles.

Share Your Sacred Gifts

We have been given so many gifts.   It is always time to share the gifts you have been given.

All of us have a song to sing that someone needs to hear - representing the still small voice that flows within us ever at play and always ready to create harmony in the celestial chorus.

"The weakest among us has a gift, however seemingly trivial, which is peculiar to him which worthily used will be a gift also to his race."  -- John Ruskin

Stop living your life in a cautionary tale. Make it a hero's journey. Accept your light and face the darkness with faith. Faith in that which is unseen but totally known. Faith in your gift that absolutely without a doubt needs to be shared. The commitment to remembering your magnificence will bring forth your authentic self, bringing you to the tools necessary to process through what comes up as you step forward increasing your emotional musculature and abilities to handle anything that crosses your path with grace. When you stand in your magnificence you resonate in truth. In a blazing light filled glory opening the hearts of those you encounter.

Take the hugest step on the path to your most radiant self making Love your bottom line.  Expanding in your humanity, expressing and exalting the love within.

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.”

Don’t get your panties in a bunch when you have to start over.
That’s nature’s cycle. A mistake is just that, a missed take. You
merely get to do it again. Starting where you are. Taking that next
step. Knowing you are not alone. Celebrating the gifts you’ve been
given and remembering -- you can’t get there from here if you
think you have to be good. As Mary Oliver wrote “You do not have
to be good.” You merely have to take the next step. Being “fully
invested in the effort without being attached to the outcome.”
Share what you know. Give all of yourself to that one step, hearing
your voice and allowing others to rejoice in it.

See the greatness in everyone that you meet offering up Love as
you go and with each step embrace the world as the great place it
is representing so many stories of uniqueness, of people, of
neighborhoods, cities and rural municipalities, of individuals who
put their hopes and dreams on the line every day. Become a class
act, that outward expression of love in action, in the space of your
fullest essence, offering tremendous insight into a way of being in
love, in full contact with the centered space of knowing, that
stillness where understanding is born out of the chaos of living.
Live your life in integrity, with purpose and the uniqueness of
your individual expression that resonates with the whole by
playing your note, transcending present circumstance in timeless,
grace filled presence, dancing effortlessly with the universal
symphony.

Get out there and be loving.  Forgive what and who needs to be forgiven.  Forgive yourself.  Get in a practice of allowing your gift to flow forth in harmony.  Share the gifts you have been given.  Take big risks. Love without condition and let the angels of our better nature shine their light.

Lots of Love,

Melanie

Happy Father's Day!

A couple of years ago I did a crowdsourcing video for a spoken word project from my tiny book of affirmations and poems I wrote entitled I am a Great Man, where SynergyTV asked people to share pictures and stories of the great men in their lives.  As is the way of the internet, pictures and stories continue to come in. This one touched me. 

I love my Dad and am grateful for all our Fathers and all the great men that enter our lives and change it for good.

Lots of Love, Mel
