Truth or illusion

In every moment there is truth or illusion. In every moment there is love or illusion. You, with the precious gift of free will, get to choose where you will focus, and therefore what you will be able to experience.

We know it is very challenging at times to see the love and feel the love that is all around you, and yet with a single act of willpower you can seek out something beautiful in all things, even in your own pain and anguish at times. Even within that is a desire for love arising within you. Even within that is a wish for better, for a kinder experience of life. Set your sights upon that. When life offers a challenge, by all means give yourself great compassion, but then allow yourself to acknowledge the love that is attempting to arise within you. You want help. You want comfort. You want to know that God's love is there for you. In all things, in all moments, in all phases of your life, you want to know that God's love is there for you. This love is as ever-present as the sun that shines behind the clouds, no matter how dark the storm.

So in any challenge dear ones, pray, "God I know you are there. Reveal yourself to me, even in this moment of challenge. Show me where to look for your love," and then release your expectations and attempt to find something good inside of your heart or even around you. In that small choice to seek truth and seek love, dear ones, you are ever closer to the memory that you cannot be separate from it.

Love is in control

There are many situations in life when you can be fairly certain of the outcome of your choices. If you do “X” you know you will get “Y.” If you touch a hot stove, you will burn your fingers. If you attempt a kind conversation with an unkind soul it is unlikely to turn out differently. If you plant roses and water them, they are likely to reward you with beautiful blossoms! If you get on the road with the right set of directions you are likely to arrive at your destination.

However, not everything in life is within your control, and most human beings find that a source of great agony. Instead, it can be a source of great joy! Rejoice! You do not have to control everything in your life! If you get in your car and find there is a detour on the road, or if you aim a certain direction in life and God steers you in a different one, rejoice! There is something better than you even dreamed or imagined. Trust, dear ones. Trust that you can make wise choices, based on what you know, but when you choose from the heart, then you will be assured of the best possible outcomes in life.

It is human nature when you “hit a detour” to feel you have failed or life has failed you. Your heart guides you into a relationship that doesn’t work and you start to give up on every finding love. Your heart guides you into a business partnership but it doesn’t go the way you want and you start giving up on the vision you had for your career. Instead dear ones, trust. Trust that the power that moves the stars in the heavens is taking you on a journey where the only destination IS love, self expression, joy, and an abundant experience of life.

Keep your heart open. Keep listening to your heart. In almost every fairy tale and archetypal myth, there is a grand vision at the beginning, unexpected twists and turns of fate, seemingly insurmountable obstacles, and then a wondrous and beautiful plan emerges until the main character finds himself or herself arriving at a happy ending. If you keep trusting in God, in life, in love, and in your own heart, then you will have not just a happy ending, but a happy life that continues on into eternity.

You abide in love

Happy Valentine’s Day to those of you who celebrate it! We are so happy when we see humanity taking time to celebrate love. In our realms, our existence is a celebration of love, for we live and abide in a state of knowing that love is the substance from which we are all made and the substance which joins us all together in a beautiful dance of creation.

So today as you go throughout your day, take time to look around and realize that whether or not you are in love with anyone in the human sense of the word, you are indeed, “In Love" – living and abiding in a creation that was designed to show you the best and most beautiful of all that you are. Look at the sun! This is the light inside of you. Look at a flower. This is your heart blossoming. Look at the diversity of colors in the rainbow. These are all the choices and possibilities that exist within you. Look at a mountain or a solid rock. This is the strength within you. Dear ones, all around you, you can see “you” - the deepest, and truest essence of who you are, the same stuff that you are made of, simply fashioned into different forms.

Breathe… think of something beautiful. How is the essence of this thing or being a part of you? Breathe again… think of something or someone you love. How is the essence of this thing or being a part of you. Breathe one more time… think of something you don’t love so much, or someone you don’t love so much. What is inside of them that perhaps you have not learned yet to be gentle and kind to within yourself?

Love is calling you in everything you see, whether it be the beauty or the less than beautiful. Everything in creation is made of love, everything in creation is attempting to remember love, and everything is beckoning you to feel this love, to summon it up from within you, and to realize there is nothing else beneath it all.

Look around you dear ones. Breathe in all the love that is there for you. Now, after you read this, shut your eyes, and feel our love, for we are there for you too. We see you as nothing less than divinely created beings, beautiful lights upon your planet earth, souls working so diligently to remember who and what they are. Happy Celebration of love dear friends. May you always feel the Love you abide within.

To feel love let it flow

In this month of love remember to not only seek out an experience of love but also to share that experience with one another, for as you give simple loving kindnesses, you draw the creative force of love to you and through you.

As you smile at a stranger, it is not just your smile, but God’s smile. As you comfort a friend it is not just your comfort, but God’s love reaching through you. As you take time to take care of yourself a little bit more, you are allowing God to care for you as well.

With each simple act of love and kindness you align your mind, body, heart, and soul with the Creator. So if you want to feel loved, be loving, genuinely. If you cannot find it within you to give love to another, then at least choose to be loving to yourself, for it is simply the vibration of love in any form at all that beings to put you back into the experience of resting in the arms of a loving creator.

Each of you wants to experience love in every moment of every day. As human beings, however, your conditioning has taught you to resist love. You want to take a moment and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea, but you feel you must rush to get on with the day. You want to call your family or text a friend but you fear you will have to stay in the conversation too long. You want to feel loving towards someone who hurt you but you fear this will open the door to more pain. Dear ones, have your coffee or tea. Text or call and say, “I only have a moment but felt like saying hello.” Feel loving towards those who hurt you but simply don’t allow them back into your life if they haven’t changed.

In each moment, you have a choice, and a chance, to feel the love of the Creator flowing to you and through you. In each moment you have a chance to align yourself with the very thing you are seeking, the very thing you came to earth to remember. It is here for you, always and forever, right now.
