Take Mel's Love Land #Next100 Pledge...“Show up for Love. Nothing more is required.”

For the next 100 days
I am going to consider the possibility there is another way
I won’t talk about war, I will feel peace.
I won’t talk about what isn’t working. 
I will experience what is.
I won’t complain about what people don’t do. 
I will appreciate what they do.

Cura Et Labore “with care and work”
I am going to allow myself to be uplifted.
And. Be willing to see change. In a new light.
In what’s remembered.

Take the time to move past the ego to execute the task that is being asked of you. To be more Loving. 
I offer all of Mel's Love Land #Next100 as a beginning into a new day.

DAY ONE MEL'S LOVE LAND #NEXT100 | STAND UP. SPEAK OUT. TAKE ACTION WITH LOVE

Been thinking a lot about personal responsibility, as the news trumpets on, and life marches forward and as change is constant and the ways we could complain endless.  Today is Day ONE of the #Next 100 Mel’s Love Land Challenge.

We have the opportunity right now to assume any position we want to assume, why not choose Love?   Take a stance of compassionate grace in your life and quite simply, look at the world through a loving filter.  Today is the day to remember life begins again in each breath.  With this next breath it is time to make a shift in consciousness, to choose in this moment to be more loving than the last, to awaken to the joy of invigorated being.
STAND UP
That man or woman in the mirror who needs to remember the truth of who you are and why you are here on the planet.  There are a lot of conversations we could be having about how tricky this situation is, or how caught up I am in my feelings, but the only conversation we need to have is am I being loving.  am I being compassionate. am I being kind.
This is the stance of remembering we are powerful beyond measure and this is what we take forward as our birthright.
SPEAK OUT
We can’t keep up with everything that is taking place in the world and we do no not have time to worry about what we can do nothing about.  Our voice is important.  Exercising that voice with love is our responsibility.
The focus falls to the individual.  It falls to the places and spaces of our playing field.  The areas of our hearts were we are in community with the world.  Life is an ongoing exercise of love in compassionate action.  It is all things in all ways and the essence of a people’s faith in each other.
TAKE ACTION
Doing the right thing is only possible when we have been taught to practice loving thought, when we have a discipline to move through the every creating illusions of our fears.
Let’s trust in love and make that the bottom line.
Check in at Mel's Love Land and start at Day ONE and every day from 9/22 on there will be a new arrival of some loving inspiration.  Join me in a discipline and commitment to love.
Take the Mel’s Love Land pledge | For the #Nex100 days I am going to Consider the Possibility there is Another Way… www.loveland101.com, invite some friends, have some fun looking at things from a new perspective.
Enjoy yourself, make a video, share it, and challenge someone to work at the world with love.


May Love Land in the deepest reaches of your truest self and may the lightest touch of peace awaken all to your call.

Love, Mel


PS. The arrival of the #Next100 days of Mel's Love Land comes with my Mom in the hospital in need of the miracle of healing and the grace of so much love.  It is with joy in the infinite healing properties of the universe that I dedicate this cycle to my Mom, Louise Lutz, who is a total light of creativity, and commitment and getting it done, no matter what.

Take Mel's Love Land Pledge | For The #Next100 Days I AM Going to Consider the Possibility There is Another Way!


On Monday, 9/22 I am starting the Third Annual Feast of Love and Words as we go #Next Level on creating a Love Land in our hearts with each breath we take.  I am glad we found each other and I am honored to grow together into ever deepening pathways of love where we get to meet and play and sometimes, if we are lucky, dance.

It started for me super simply with a voice that kept saying "for the next 100 days I am going to consider the possibility there is another way" that repeated and repeated until I wrote it down and has grown from there into so many miracles and new pathways of being.

Not sure when you will come across this, or if you need to take the 100 day pledge but I offer it up because it helped me and my hope is it continues to inspire and uplift and move people into loving action.

May Love Land in the deepest spaces of your truest heart and may the lightest touch of peace awaken all to your call.

I am deeply grateful for the gifts I have been given and I appreciate the ways they have shown up and how each day the limitless possibility of the present makes itself known with lots of love.  To further engage the spirit of Love in its many forms Soundcloud will be hosting the drop ins on the 100 Days of Inspirational readings for you to listen to as the Love Land calendar moves forward.  

Please enjoy this first ever reading of my own Next 100 days where I considered the possibilities for a life filled with Love.

Enjoy!

"Make it a Better World... This is Your Life. You make your own Choices." Dr. Maya Angelou

It will satisfy your soul.  Just do right.  It will bring you the kind of protection that body guards can't give you.  

Do it.  Because it is the right thing to do.  If you teach you have to live your teaching.  I am doing my best to do what I teach.  

"Live your life in such a way...  make it a better world, just where you are.'




Dr. Maya Angelou wrote some of my favorite words from her poem our Grandmothers... that shares the truth of what I shall not be moved means through time and space and trials and tribulations, through injustice and just ness.

She stood in midocean, seeking dry land. 
She searched God's face. 
Assured, 
she placed her fire of service 
on the altar, and though 
clothed in the finery of faith, 
when she appeared at the temple door, 
no sign welcomed 
Black Grandmother, Enter here.

Into the crashing sound, 
into wickedness, she cried, 
No one, no, nor no one million 
ones dare deny me God, I go forth 
along, and stand as ten thousand.

The Divine upon my right 
impels me to pull forever 
at the latch on Freedom's gate.

I shall not be moved.

In every breath we get the opportunity to remain deeply rooted into the soul of ourselves offering love to all we meet, making our corner of the world a better place.

"The Power of 'I Am'" A Magnificent Woman...

“Whatever follows I AM is going to come looking for you.”  from Joel Osteen delivered through the Oprah Super Soul Sunday programming.  This power of I AM Oprah sums up as she always does... ”Your life is how you see it.”  Change the way you see your life.  Choose to make your I AM Magnificent.  Get Oprah-fied in little and small ways while you set yourself up for success.

Never have words so simple held so much meaning.  I AM, that I am.  You need look no further than the present moment, and the choice to celebrate the truth.  However you are feeling? However you have arrived where you have arrived and NO MATTER what you are witnessing.  I AM it forward.  See the deepest truth of who you are, see the ways that truth gives birth to what is next.  No matter what follows your I AM you are in the presence of a force greater than you or I.  You are standing at the ground of your being to make a shift to understand how that shift is possible by releasing into this statement with total acceptance.

I AM statements have been with me for a long time.  Partly because of my own journey through getting bare to the truth, through and after the tears, the shame and breakthroughs and still more tears came the words I had been trying to remember...  I am a Magnificent Woman.  I knew when those words broke free in my heart and I could speak them out loud into the clear air my life would change in miraculous ways. 

It did.  I knew I was powerful beyond measure.  I knew I was enough and was ready to broadcast the truth.  I AM A MAGNIFICENT woman.  Click here to see a Guerilla Read of the poem at the West Hollywood Book fair.  The temperature was 102 degrees and you can hardly see me sweating. 

Here's the originating source that Oprah pulled her Lesson from for Super Soul Sunday...
