Keep it Simple. I am Only Here for Love.

There are so many ways to react to the bombardment of information constantly flowing.
Let's keep things simple.
Make a choice.
Consider the possibility there is another way.
Don't connect to circumstance
Connect within.
No matter the differences we experience, in organizing our communities with love we experience a lot of chill time.

Keep it simple.
Go into every situation with the thought "I am only here for love' and see what happens.
Choose love.
Report back.




Love, Mel

Mels Love Land: All Systems Love Next 100 | Day 85 | Love Yourself

We never know why we are made a certain way. Who’s to say one quality you consider a hindrance isn't the key to your path through. You never know how the gifts you have been given will be received and to what affect. All you can do is give your gifts freely and openly.
Next 100 | Day 85 | Love Yourself
Love. Yourself. With wild abandon and cherish the moods and rhythms of your sacred sounds. There is only one of you. Complete and healed and whole and in full possession of unending joy, peace, love and presence of self.




Affirm It | Day 85
With each breath I take I connect to myself. I gladly give up my fear, I move into eternal joy.




This day, April 4th happens to be the day Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated and also the birthday of Maya Angelou
Maya Angelou talks in this clip from Youtube about Martin Luther King Jr. to future leaders... on "Finding courage in the leaders, and you who will become leaders. Courage is the most important of all the virtues because without courage you cannot practice the any of the other virtues consistently. You can't be consistently kind, human, etc... without courage."






The way that we practice courage dictates the ways our heart sings its beautiful song..

As Eleanor Roosevelt said...

It is Our Duty to Fight for our Freedom | BLM: Love Activism - Where do we go from here?

Spoken for all those who can’t be present, those who need a wake up call, those who remain vigilant to the work ahead and it is a rally cry for love and freedom as 21st century all systems love movements.

The chant is said three times— softly, louder, then full primal scream. It is meant to disrupt thought patterns, energies and beliefs that keep us enslaved.

“It is our duty to fight for our freedom.
It is our duty to win.
We must love each other and support each other.
We have nothing to lose but our chains.”

From longtime social justice warrior Assata Shakur's who lit a candle of loving thought into the heart of fear and apathy and tyranny.

It is our duty to fight for our freedom.
It is our duty to win.
We must love each other and support each other.
We have nothing to lose but our chains.

Here's a link to Assata Shakur bio

Found this online two of the founders, Opal Tometi and Patrisse Cullors of the Black Lives Matter movement demonstrating its use at the end of a gathering…

“It is our duty to fight for our freedom.
It is our duty to win.
We must love each other and support each other.
We have nothing to lose but our chains.”

Love is meant to be put into right use full ness. Love is action is justice. It is an experience of right use full ness. Love is what love does. Love in action bares witness to the truth seen with the heart, where we soft focus beyond the recording of the eyes and ears expressing the vision beyond surface trivialities.

Each act of love is a demonstration of the powerful right use of the heart, the example of our oneness of loving our brother as ourself. It is everything that transforms the present moment into love’s miracle. It is you and me in resonance vibrating ever forward with love. It is seeing into a situation and recognizing the act we need to take, it is sharing our gifts in each moment knowing all acts are divinely timed. Showcasing the way we are privileged to offer ourselves by showing up to do what is necessary, to speak into the void of possibility and call out love. To name it and claim it for justice, to reside in a land of truth and connection. This act of showing up for love, in some cases differently than we have previously, in some cases with more love, in some cases with a fierceness of knowing the desired affect and outcome will restore an alignment to our soul’s purpose. To love and respect each other and become beacons of caring and kindness in our communities.

Keep the inner power light radiantly burning.
(Breathe in peace. Breathe out love.)
Be someone today who leads with love.
Things will improve. Love has the will for it and so do you.

I March in March for a Driver's Licence registration for common sense gun ownership.

I pray in this moment for God’s support, help and guidance to make it so. I expect a miracle.

“It is our duty to fight for our freedom.
It is our duty to win.
We must love each other and support each other.

We have nothing to lose but our chains.”

Love, Mel

Tomorrow There Will Be More of Us. It's Only a Matter of Love. Ben Platt | Lin-Manuel Miranda

"When our children tell our story, they'll tell the story of tonight."

"Tomorrow there will be more of us telling the story of tonight."

A beautiful expression of our current state of affairs. Two artists putting their artistry on the line in support of March for Our Lives and common sense Gun ownership.

The time is always now to do right.
The time is always now to make a change.
The time is always now to stand and deliver move love.

Grateful for the theater and those who thrive in its dark space bringing light to much needed conversations and enriching the fabric of our activism as a new world bursts forth.

Have a listen and do something to shift into more kindness, more connection and a deep love of our neighbors as ourselves. Enjoy this pitch perfect expression of the story of now.

Lin-Manuel Miranda & Ben Platt "Found Tonight" [Official Video]





Let that lonely feeling wash away
when you don't feel strong enough to stand
you can reach out your hand.

Even when the dark comes crashing through.
When you need a friend to carry you.
when you are broken on the ground
You will be found

So Let the sun come streaming in.
You'll reach up and rise again.
If you only look around
You will be found

When you don't feel strong enough to stand
you can reach out your hand
and hold on

When our children tell our story.
No matter what they tell you.
Tomorrow there will be more of us
Telling the story of tonight.

Raise a glass to all of us. Tomorrow there will be more of us.

Starting here. Starting now. Make a choice to practice Kindness.


"We have also come to this hallowed spot to remind America of the fierce urgency of Now. This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism. Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy. Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice. Now is the time to lift our nation from the quicksands of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood. Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God's children." 

The issue of equal rights is part of a larger statement about justice for all. About the practice of our earth stewardship.

See today where you are forgetting your dream and pick it back up and share it with a brother. Join together. As ACIM says an idea grows stronger when shared and there is nothing stronger than an agreement between two people.

It is time to join together. It is time to practice the principles of Non Violence in the pursuit of a universal oneness where we know we are our neighbor and every day we wake up we have the privilege of making their lives better.

On the planet today there are one billion people who live in poverty. Who struggle to feed themselves and their families.

THAT IS UNACCEPTABLE.

When a brother is in trouble, we are all in trouble.

We know better, we can do better.

Hiding in the bosom of the cult of culture is not going to do it. No more living in the delusion of separation and being different. No more blinders. It is time for the truth. Recognizing our commonalities. Recognizing our note in the song of the universe enabling the harmony of love.

Starting here. Starting now. Make a choice to practice kindness.

Congrats to the Film Making Team on I Can Only Imagine for a Great Opening Weekend.

When if first heard the heartfelt Wynonna Judd sharing and performing I Can Only Imagine as country classic you could feel the connection to higher source that carries us through times that test our faith and trust....

"When the quiet stillness of the night comes, you ask yourself... is this what it's all about?"




: Wynonna sings I Can Only Imagine:

"not preachin... just teachin"

The song and its origin story is rich source material and feels as though it was written by soul.

Grateful to see the fruition of the original intent fully realized in film form.

Here's the link to the reviews on rotten tomatoes. Looks like the definition of crowd pleaser.
