What is Seen and Unseen

My heart hears the seen and unseen

Wherein lies the truth
Hidden in street corners, in bustling neighborhoods, on sidewalks here and there, in plain sight, in quiet rooms, what is seen and unseen,
acts of kindness,
acts of bravery,
acts of fear,
desperation as seeds made manifest
love shining beneath the cracks–
Moments up for consideration.
A new way a new day of open hearted grace,
seeds of love,
to grow,
to experience the discipline of now,
in each breath.
The eyes and ears process,
they do not see or hear –
what is truly seen and heard is of the heart.

What is in me, what is of me, what will come through me.

Now. Now. Now.

A Thought from the Butterflies.

the butterflies whisper my name
they call me from other spaces of truth
shouting 'now is the time.'

these precious breaths, this precious moment, now.

nowhere is it within our hearts to take action
we are to be action
to surround the winds with love
to beat our wings in protest of what is not
to encourage it into being
now and forever
now and forever
do not worry 
it is all as it is
the beats go strong, the beats go on
the moment is now
do not fade from the task
beat on
beat on

beat on.

Baring Witness to the Heart #MelsLoveLand #MiniMag Issue 7

To be afforded insight into the human heart, to be able to bare witness to the light bulb moments, reconnecting and resurrecting parts of yourself that had long lay dormant, detoxing from whatever weighs you down, is intense, but necessary in allowing change to flow in loving movement. Surrender your defenses and open your heart. It is okay. You are not alone. You are not alone in your feelings, you are not alone in you mistakes. We are all connected in that space of the heart. As you move more deeply into your hearts power and its natural beats of giving and receiving, anything that feels like a struggle, the inner attacks and arrows, and co-dependence and mistakes, will weaken in their effects on your loving actions.  You will begin to see them as the blessings they are.

Make inner peace a priority. In the most gentle of ways, enjoy today as an exercise of love and allowing all to be as it is as you release into your path and stay completely open and in service to the mission of today.

May you feel connected, comforted and full of peace

Today. Now. Always.

May your soul be full of joy and your life ignite

in ways you never dreamed possible...

MAY PEACE BEFALL ALL YOU MEET #MelsLoveLand #MiniMag Issue 7 | Passion

Passion is the greatest resource of compassion, the fires of our being made manifest through that internal loving ignition point of all things.

These first lines of a Pablo Narudo poem written near the end of his career looking back at his beginnings brings the feeling to life in the poetic language...

"Something ignited in my soul, fever or unremembered wings, and I went my own way deciphering that burning fire."

The heart and soul only cares that you do it your way.

"Something ignited in my soul"

Give this all the oxygen it needs.

"I went my own way deciphering that burning fire."

Listen to what is being called for.

Take the next step even though it is scary. Stand for love, for the intuition of our soul.

Listen to what you know you need to do and please do it. We are all at the point where we need to embrace all we know and stand in that truth of who we are and what ignites our soul.

Now is the time for peace.

Mels Love Land is not a place you can go to on a map. It is an experience of yourself within, an experience of deep and abiding peace of mind, body and spirit, a place where you can wake up in full joy of your being and fully participate in every process of your life, where the world is a sacred experience of seeing love and experiencing its grace forgiving as you go. Where every corner is a meeting place of open heart and the soulful force of nature.

Have fun out there. 

Live Well. Be Well. Love Well.

Return to Forgiveness. #MelsLoveLand #MiniMag Issue 7 | Passion

After all of it, after the journey is complete and the surrender has unfolded and the tears have fallen and it feels like they might never end, this passage from The Holy Bible: King James Version. The Revelation of St. John the Divine lights the way through compassion for me.

“And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.  And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said unto me, Write: for these words are true and faithful. And he said unto me, It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely.  He that overcometh shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son.”

You reach a point where tears are friends beckoning the truth you had locked away in a drawer. Let not our tears stop us from doing what passion dictates must be done. Let our anger fuel our purpose. Wipe away your tears and step into a new day where Love leads the way. The detox in the form of our tears is necessary and when it is written I shall wipe away all tears.  It means exactly that.  ALL tears are felt and heard and held.  This can be your comfort in the wake of whatever befalls your circumstance.  Faith is vision beyond what the eyes can see.  Take the soft focus of love and step into and through the fires of comfortability into the deeply refreshing air of the truth. 

There has been a lot going on this year, many ups and downs, many losses and tragedies, much to celebrate and so much love. 

Tears are our opportunity to forgive, to allow a flow of compassion to rise and swell the grace of the moment, released. In each moment of grace, all karma is burned.  ALL KARMA. Give yourself the gift of grace, of forgiveness and love.

May healing and light and joy flow in the days ahead allowing inspiration to rise from the depth of our heart and our tears as our friends leading the way to the inspiration of our soul.
