Claim a Miracle. Surround yourself with Light. Find a Way of the Heart to Rise.

JUSTICE is what love sounds like when it speaks out loud.

What hatred claimed is given up to love, and freedom lights up every living thing and lifts it into Heaven, where the lights grow ever brighter as each one comes home. The incomplete is made complete again, and Heaven’s joy has been increased because what is its own has been restored to it. The bloodied earth is cleansed, and the insane have shed their garments of insanity to join them on the ground whereon you stand.  Heaven is grateful for this gift of what has been withheld so long. For They have come to gather in Their Own.

What has been locked is opened; what was held apart from light is given up, that light may shine on it and leave no space nor distance lingering between the light of Heaven and the world.

"The holiest of all the spots on earth is where an ancient hatred has become a present love."

What hatred has released to love becomes the brightest light in Heaven’s radiance. And all the lights in Heaven brighter grow, in gratitude for what has been restored.

Around you angels hover lovingly, to keep away all darkened thoughts of sin, and keep the light where it has entered in. Your footprints lighten up the world, for where you walk forgiveness gladly goes with you. No one on earth but offers thanks to one who has restored his home, and sheltered him from bitter winter and the freezing cold.

Welcome at last. Where stood a cross stands now the risen Christ, and ancient scars are healed within His sight. An ancient miracle has come to bless and to replace an ancient enmity that came to kill. 

In gentle gratitude 
Returned to love.

We are here to stand together, to not be indifferent to suffering, to not stand by while injustice rages, but to stand with each other, to join arms and walk forward not because we are the same, not that we have to have the same beliefs, not that we have to see eye to eye but, to amplify the cries of our collective heart, to join in the space of peace and love and humanity. Now and always.

There are many injustices taking place in our communities and our worlds at large. It is not a time to go silent. It is a time to speak with clarity and with love.  Email us if you want to participate in our acts of kindness in our program of all systems love  info@alwaysalice.com.

Read this article and extend your hearts toward the women warriors as they fight on.

When President Enrique Peña Nieto of Mexico was still a governor, he ordered a crackdown on protesters that led to the brutal sexual assault of dozens of women. The victims took their case to international human rights officials, who are now demanding an investigation across the entire chain of command in Mexico. That would probably mean investigating the president, Mr. Peña Nieto.

Sprinkle it with Dew. RIP - Mr. Sunrise - Gene Wilder - Sending Love...

Nobody brought the laughter and enthusiasm and joy to his work like Gene Wilder. Whether charming us with his innate likeability, wooing us with his charisma, delighting us with his singing and providing laughs that only his unique blend of talents could provide.


So many nights spent laughing and emulating Gene Wilder and Richard Pryer movies. So many revisits of the Classic films he left his indelible mark on.  No one, ever could touch Gene Wilder. In humor, in kindness, in humanity, for all he has brought to us and for those who will continue to be touched by his legacy.

Last year I had the privilege to be at the unveiling of the 40th anniversary of YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN on the stage where they shot one of my families favorite comedies and to hear Mel Brooks talk about his love of Gene Wilder and the origins of the film on the set of Blazing Saddles and the ways that Gene Wilder's presence brought an intelligence and passion to his work - where the two found a comedy language and relationship that continues to bring grace and joy into the hearts of audiences who get to experience this timeless classic.  

  


In memorium and honoring of a true graceful intelligent, loving man. Take a tiny moment to add some extra love to each action you take today. Give yourself a gift of love, add it into the mix and watch what happens.  You don't have to be The Candy Man to enjoy a world that is delicious.






Who can take a sunrise, 
sprinkle it with dew
Cover it with choc'late and a miracle or twoT
he Candy Man, oh the Candy Man can
The Candy Man can 'cause he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good






From a Mels Love Land perspective, Mr. Wilder's life is an ongoing reminder to use LOVE to imbue your words and your actions.  In his spirit I encourage your Loving actions to have the force of your intentions.  Embrace all the love.  Sing a song of love for all to hear, drop into whatever helps you remember the truth of your loving being.  Sometimes when I'm feeling blue I sing a song, if you see me you’ll catch me humming a song like 'raindrops on roses' and 'whiskers on kittens' flowing softly from my lips, sometimes it is as simple as a new tune to ease into the hearts magical properties with ease. Sometimes it is... “Who can take a rainbow, wrap it in a sigh, soak it in the sun and make a groovy lemon pie, the Candy Man can 'cause he mixes it with love and makes the world taste good.  The candy man can because he mixes it with love and makes the world go around.”

LOVE, mix it in and out of each and every new day and enjoy the taste of delicious goodness.

LOVE makes the world go around.

Unbreakable, unshakeable, unmistakable. Love.

LOVE + ANYTHING =  Transformation and Sunshine.

Let's put love into the equation. Let’s outdo one another in honoring ourselves and those around us.  Let’s get into the spirit of the gospel sung out loud and deeply remembered ‘Steadfast love endures forever ‘--psalms 136

You can lean on my faith it is all possible, because it is.  You are most certainly not alone. We do this together because we are in it together.  Complete with Angels, new and old.

Peace be with you in the echoes of tomorrow as emerging ideas grow stronger when shared as the inner and outer man come into harmony.

Enjoy one of his last interviews below thanks to The Daily Beast for sharing.







Lastly, several years ago, thanks to my beautiful neice, Hannah staring as Charlie with a group of five year olds performing Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory with loving and hilarious gusto -- 'Who can take a sunrise, sprinkle it with dew, cover it in chocolate and a miracle or two?' -- Either 1) the Candy Man or 2) You - with lots of love.










Forgiveness. Releasing. Accepting. #Miracles #Love #Grace

"Being angry is like holding a red hot rock in your hand and getting ready to throw it at them. In the meantime, you get burned. So forgiveness is putting down the rock"

Forgiveness is the home of miracles. A miracle is an instant of truth.  The holy instant when you see your life with love.  This place where you are open and in alignment with source viewing your life through the vision of love, plugged in to what is already there.

Choose today to forgive, to open your heart to that deep connection with the universal light within all things. Allow yourself to be a place where love flourishes and expands naturally as ever deepening expressions of love. Choose to see every situation differently, because in choosing forgivness, in dropping the rock, you honor your deepest loving self.


Make a choice to be and see Lots of Love as you forgive, release and let go of any sword, rock, insult, judgement that might come forward...

Life is meant to be celebrated with love and light and joy. Foriveness is meant to be given and recieved through the powerful vulnerabilty of grace. 

Get out there and be loving, today and everyday. And while you are doing it, enjoy a fashionable game of crouquet.

Ghandi. Return to Prayer (for Life) - Your Whole Being is Beautiful...

Prayerfulness has been a practice of mine for the past several years. It goes hand in hand with the work of the heart. It greases the wheels of our dreams and empowers the wishes of eternity.

At a recent outing to the Lake Shrine in Los Angeles visiting the Gandhi World Peace Memorial which enshrines a portion of the ashes of Gandhi I got the opportunity to contemplate, to meditate and to enjoy the peace filled environment alive with possibility and purpose. A mecca to self actualization.

Wanted to share some of the selections from Gandhi's writings brought forward from this visit.  Through Gandhi's words you can feel the power of prayer as practice, of messenger to the greatest gift of humility, to the activation point of what is truth; that deep and abiding peace of mind, body and spirit that rings so clearly it creates the dance of life.  

I share this knowing there is work to be done in our hearts. There is work to be done in our communities, there is work to be done in our friends and families. There is work to be done in our worlds. This work is made easier from the deep humility of prayerful thought.  God gave us the word to make manifest the energies of creation. The word brings love into action as movement flowing with all that is becoming a harmony of transmission to the means inherent in the end. A peace loving healed and whole world.

Enjoy these bites of wisdom from the Man himself.

"Prayer needs no speech. It is in itself independent of any sensuous effort. I have not the slightest doubt that prayer is an unfailing means of cleansing the ehart of passions. But it must be combined with the utmost humility.

As food is necessary for the body, prayer is neccessary for the soul. Prayer is an impossibility without a living faith in the presence of God within. God demands nothing less than complete self-surrender as the price for the only real freedom that is worth having.

Never own defeat in a sacred cause. Make up your mind hencefoth that you will be pure and that you will find a response from God. But God never answers the prayers of the arrogant, nor the prayers of those who bargain with him. if you would ask him to help you, go to him in all your nakedness; approach him without reservatinos, also without fear or doubts as to how he can help a fallen being like you.

The prayer of even the most impure will be answered. I am telling this out of my personal experience, I have gone through the purgatory.

Prayer is the key of the morning and the bolt of the evening. "It is better in prayer to have a heart without words than words without a heart." (Bunyan)

I am giving you a bit of my experience and that of my companions when I say that he who has experienced the magic of prayer may do without food for days together but not for a single moment without prayer. For without prayer there is no inward peace.


The more my faith in God increased, the more irrestistable became the yearnings for prayer. Life seemed to me dull and vanct without it. In fact food for the body is not so necessary as prayer for the soul.

I have found people who envy my peace. That peace comes from prayer; I am not a man of learning but I humbly claim to be a man of prayer. I am indifferent as to the form. Everyone is a law unto himself in that respect.

It has occured to me that a seeker after truth has to be silent. I know the wonderful efficacy of silence.

Let everyone try and find out that as a result of daily prayer he adds something new to his life, something with which nothing else can be compared."



It bears repeating from an earlier post.

Martin Luther King, Jr. wrote… “Mahatma #Gandhi never had more than one hundred persons absolutely committed to his #philosophy. But with this small group of devoted followers, he galvanized the whole of India, and through a #magnificentfeat of nonviolence challenged the might of the British Empire and won freedom for his people. This method of nonviolence will not work #miracles overnight. Men are not easily moved from their mental ruts, their prejudiced and irrational feelings." It is time to shift your thoughts, your attitidue, your work and service toward #love. Be committed.

Thanks for joining the love movement. We appreciate you, your heart, and all the actions you are enjoying in collective prayerfulness.

The Miracles in Each Moment. MELS LOVE LAND #MINIMAG | ISSUE 8 FREEDOM



EVERY MOMENT YOU DON'T BRING THE PAST 
INTO THE PRESENT IS A MIRACLE

Allow yourself the freedom of meeting and voicing and acting in service to our human hearts calls of love. Now is the time for radiating peace as all our collective shadows are being brought up and out into the light for deeper healing. What I learned since the last issue is whatever challenge we face. It is a call to love more. A call to love deeper. To not give up. To go to another next level of love and growth and hope not ignoring the negativity that surrounds conversations but seeing a pathway into the connective tissue of our humanity.

No matter what divides us... We must remain united in the highest order of freedom in loving action doing our best. With respect for our differences and find our common humanity. Lets make doing our best a practice of humanity as a way of life. Not because it's easy. But because it's the right thing to do.

We owe it to those who come after us not to fall asleep, not to forget who we are, and to take advantage of the deeper conversation. We owe it to ourselves to stand united rising above the rhetoric and feelings that seek to block, shift, divide you from our inner power. 

When I first spoke the words All Systems Love it was at the BOOK SOUP on Sunset Blvd. in the City of Angels, within a week, the universe delivered me exactly where more love was needed, called into action to share more and more love, stepping deeper into my purpose  - to extend love, free to share my gifts aligned with my hearts work in this lifetime.  

Who knows what will come your way when you join us in a practice of putting love first.
