the sweetness within...

Oh sweet Life,

i adore you more than words can say. have i said that already? have i worn out the words? are they beaten and faded now?

dare i tell you, that i don't care? i can't stop saying it. and i won't.

life's generosity begins with the love that brews and stirs itself within our own skin. it is a given. endlessly flowing within and ever ready to be recognized. Self recognition...Self realization...is nothing more than knowing that you yourself are love. but oh how these words fail to encapsulate the vastness...the immensity of That which you truly are...

everything that is coming to me of late feels like a love song from the unseen. i see it. everywhere. love is everywhere. every where. around and through and over and under. every which way you turn and twirl. it's there. IT'S THERE. waving at me. smiling at me. surrounding me. writing to me. pulling at me. setting me free. all of it. my dance is the dance of love in movement.

love is the big picture and love is the details in the picture.

i close my eyes in moments and say "i never want to be away from this" as i feel things that there are no words for. things get brighter in their lightness and a stillness comes to romance me into my Self. ah...

love is my world. i know nothing of another.

speak to me of love and i will be sure to send my reply.
sing to me of life's endless beauty and i will be sure to listen.
write to me of your love for your moment and i will send my words of same.

Love. this is all i know. this is my world. this is all i hear of. this is all my eyes will focus for. this is all i can speak of. this is my language.

love is not the language of only lovers...it is the language of life itself.

in Love every which way you can imagine,
me

Simon says

he said: your body is a reflector of the energy stored in your beliefs.

while the rest of the words had me tilt my head in ponderment, this particular arrangement of words totally rang my bell.

i like it when You ring my bell.

what brilliant beings dwell in my world.

Simon says you're beautiful just as you are. I quite agree.

i could lick your face

i looked into the eyes of a most beautiful being and uttered the words "you in all your wonder are irrelevant to my happiness."

i utterly adore the gifts of this life. the beautiful beings that allow me to bask in their everything. there is so much love and brilliance that pours through so many faces in my world. and i often walk into my entanglements with a kind of appreciation that words can't convey. it's endless. and "i adore you" doesn't say enough. i mean...i could really lick all their faces with gusto!

but i often wake up to face the solidity of my own detachment. except it isn't detachment. it isn't non-attachment. it isn't some concept being practiced. it is a realization that the stream of joy and the energy that we call happiness flows through me irregardless of the conditions and beautiful faces facing me. life has designed it all so that all wholeness and fulfillment rest nestled in the crevasses of your entire being. it is all within.

my connection to Self depends on no one. my Self connections rests on nothing outside. my family has nothing to do with the body i sport. my relationships have nothing to do with the players involved. for what i adore and what adores me is this Self in all - That which rests brightly in between the spaces of our skin. my family is Self. my true love is Self. my relationship is with Self. my Being is Self. there is nothing else.

once in a while someone will come in and say "but i am your" so and so. i could scream YOU ARE NOT and be done with it but words never teach and the reality each creates is his or her own to do with what they will.

yet i know doubtlessly that this uncontainable power that you are is all i see when i look at you. and not the conceptual play things you don. you are the embodiment of a magnificence that is EVERYWHERE.

freedom says...you are never responsible for my happiness. THAT is not your burden. for Life has created each WHOLE without condition...unconditionally. and if ever you think that you have to stand on your head to please another, you are forgetting who they are and who you are. you are forgetting the individual perfection with which every being is crafted.

it's simple really. i love. deeply. but i do so in freedom.

in Wholeness,
me

Divine Flow

joy has no companion in pain or in sorrow
this life,
it is an irruption of sheer ecstasy
endlessly flowing forth
from the rib cage of Eternity

when the universe winks

it's a lot of fun this universe of ours. you set your intentions and the universe sends you something to say "gotcha, comin' right up!" right before your intentions manifest.

take these random magnets i got in the mail:



it makes me laugh. HOW the powers that are, orchestrate and coordinate everything delights me to no end.

Go team Universe!

life is a brilliant dream. and the magic is never-ending. and anything that you want can and will be yours at anytime. no exceptions.

live your dream. you can.
