How All You Need Is Love



Love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love.
There's nothing you can do that can't be done.
Nothing you can sing that can't be sung.
Nothing you can say but you can learn how to play the game
It's easy.
There's nothing you can make that can't be made.
No one you can save that can't be saved.
Nothing you can do but you can learn how to be you
in time - It's easy.

All you need is love, all you need is love,
All you need is love, love, love is all you need.
Love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love.
All you need is love, all you need is love,
All you need is love, love, love is all you need.
There's nothing you can know that isn't known.
Nothing you can see that isn't shown.
Nowhere you can be that isn't where you're meant to be.
It's easy.
All you need is love, all you need is love,
All you need is love, love, love is all you need.
All you need is love (all together now)
All you need is love (everybody)
All you need is love, love, love is all you need.

Each day demonstrates to me this very message in profound and powerful ways. I'm excited for what we're unveiling.

Elevating Love Consciousness

It doesn't matter what we have accomplished, what recognition we have received, what we own, there is nothing as sweet as loving--not necessarily being loved--but just loving. The more we love--the more people, the more manifestations of life we love--the richer we are...Nothing would be sweeter than to be able to love everywhere and always. - Kabir Helminski

All that matters is LOVING, just and only LOVING.

the Journey toward Sustainability

I'm at a press conference for the Islands sustainability program I'm working on, complete with TV cameras, news reporters, and freelance writers. I'm sitting at the back behind the cameras with my name tag and laptop. God bless the internet, and the leftover Veggie wraps from delicados that will feed me for the rest of the week.

Chef's are in attendance - the initiative is to promote and create sustainable food service and restaurants here on the island. Progress is inspiring.

One of the chef's present just told us that he uses the vegetable oil from his vats to run his vehicle. How's THAT for commitment to the sustainability journey and vision!?!

Just goes to show, the human mind-heart can DELIVER incredible solutions when committed to a vision.

What are you committed to?

the Power to CHOOSE



Today, I'm going to own every second of my experience and CHOOSE only those patterns, only those interactions, only those streams of information that empower, support, and propel my being into higher and higher altitudes. Today, I choose to take flight into the center of who and what I am.

Come with me:

"You can desire whatever you want. And you can have whatever you want. As long as you realize that it's just a game that you're playing within the Illusion. And you deserve everything because it's not even real, so why shouldn't you have a grand experience?!"

Embracing Your Greatness


I love her!

Jim Carrey

I was thinking about the kind of man I want to be around just three minutes ago. Clarifying my vision and challenging myself to believe that he exists in this world, challenging myself to not settle for anything else. And then I saw these videos. As I listened to Mr.Carrey, I thought...that's exactly the kind of man I'm looking for. One who knows who he really is. One who knows the power of his own mind, focus, and intention. One who knows and so eloquently expresses the nature of this amazing reality. One who is committed to living every moment from this miraculous space beyond thought, beyond illusions...How I love the ways the Universe says to me "is this what you mean?"

This is exactly what I mean (but maybe a decade or so younger!) - one who KNOWS and LIVES and BREATHES it!!!



"And I want to take as many people with me as I can because the feeling is amazing" <----- YES! ME TOO!!! ME TOO!!!

EXACTLY!!! EXACTLY!!!

Namaste Mr.Light (thanks Ariel!)

I Am all of it!

My dreams are beginning to make sense! This is exactly the feeling I was looking for, the man whose words I'm in so much resonance with. That's what I was trying to describe. The likeness of intention, the similarity of our understanding and experience, the unique flavor of the expression. Captivating! THANK YOU for the instantaneous confirmation beautiful Universe. Just AMAZING! I won't settle for anything less than CAPTIVATING! My heart always knows :)

in love,
K.

It's Just A Ride



"The world is like a ride at an amusement park, and when you choose to go on it, you think it's real, because that's how powerful our minds are. And the ride goes up and down and round and round and it has thrills and chills and it's very brightly colored and it's very loud. And it's fun, for a while.

Some people have been on the ride for a long time, and they begin to question: 'Is this real? Or is this just a ride?' And other people have remembered, and they come back to us and they say 'Hey! Don't worry, don't be afraid - ever - because... this is just a ride.' And we kill those people.

'Shut him up! We have a lot invested in this ride! Shut him up! Look at my furrows of worry; look at my big bank account, and my family. This has to be real.'

It's just a ride. But we always kill those good guys who try and tell us that - ever notice that? - and we let the demons run amok. But it doesn't matter, because... it's just a ride, and we can change it any time we want. It's only a choice.It's only a choice. No effort. No worry. No job. No savings and money. Just a choice, right now, between fear and love. " ---- Bill Hicks

the Big Leap



Are you willing to expand your capacity for positive energy? Are you willing to believe that life can go right and you can feel good, most, if not, all of the time? If not, are you willing to transcend the limitations of your current beliefs/programming?

"In the face of so much evidence that life hurts and is fraught with adversity on all fronts, having a willingness to feel good and have life go well all the time is a genuinely radical act." - Gay Hendricks

BEING before DOING

You know what I find interesting? We seem to place a lot of emphasis on what you're DOING in this world or for this world. There's a lot of focus on DOING. And while I acknowledge the power of accountability and responsibility, I feel we must give equal weight to the blessing you already are just because you exist. You EXIST. That is the gift. Your existence, that you're here right now, is your first gift to this reality, to this Universe. You, the unique pattern of light that you are, the unique melody that you are in this world, YOU ARE THE GIFT. YOU ARE HERE. Everything that you do as a result of your existence is secondary. When someone says "what's your contribution to this world" the first thing I say is "I exist. I'm HERE."

I am BEING before I am DOING.

You are loved by an unfathomable love, not for your words or deeds or efforts, but for the simple fact that you exist, for the simple reason that YOU'RE HERE. You are a living, breathing, miracle. That is the gift. That is the blessing. Love brought you into being for LOVE. Feel the power of that first, and what you do in this world from this place of feeling how loved you are just because you ARE, will be infused with something magical.

Beautiful Flower

I sing this song to you...

♫"Now we're moving from the darkness into the light
This is the defining moment of our lives

'Cause you're beautiful like a flower
More valuable than a diamond
You are powerful like a fire
You can heal the world with your mind

There is nothing in the world that you cannot do
When you believe in you, who are beautiful
Yeah, you, who are brilliant
Yeah, you, who are powerful
Yeah, you, who are resilient"♪

- the amazing India Arie

What I Know

I know that you already have more than you can dream of having, even if you don't yet know this yourself.
I know that you are something magnificent, even if you don't yet see this yourself.
I know that you are infinitely adored by that which you call Life, even if you don't yet feel this yourself.
I know that you are something mightily powerful, even if you don't yet believe this yourself.
I know that you can have anything that you want at anytime, even if you don't yet live this yourself.

And I know...that the only things that can ever appear to wound you, are only the thoughts you keep choosing to play with. The only things that can ever appear to hurt you, are the thoughts you remain enamored with.

With your own mind, you make up a whole Universe.

Being Furnished

Human beings are so absolutely gracious and beautiful. I'm surrounded by Love. It never ends to amaze me just how quickly people show up as Love, being, and expressing nothing but generosity each and every step of the way. Beings in my life and virtual strangers keep showing up to show me just how vast the Love that we are extends. It is so lovely!

I've been in my new home having no idea what to shop for to furnish my new place. I've never had to furnish an entire apartment before so figuring out what I like, how I want it to look, and the money involved is all new arena. It's really nice to get to develop my own taste and style, to discover the decor guru within myself. So as the scenes pass and various amazing beings hear that I don't have furniture yet, free little pieces started showing up. But that's not the beautiful part...it's the way beautiful human being after beautiful human being showed up on my doorstep with furniture pieces in their hands asking "hey would you have use for this" with genuine concern, kindness, and openness. I want to figure out what I like and find my own taste in the items I ultimately bring into my home, but that I have these "in the meantime" pieces show up through these kinds of gestures, continues to redefine just what humanity is about for me. I love human beings! Like, a whole lot! And I love that these free pieces are giving me the time I need to create the kind of space I really want without having to go rush out and just fill my space out with stuff I'm not crazy about. I actually want to be crazy about everything I bring home with me!



I've narrowed my living room furnishings down to wanting it all to be dark furniture, mostly dark brown items. Just one sofa and maybe a matching chair (maybe), a coffee table, and just one end table. I want to keep the space open and free of clutter. I love walking into a space that feels and looks spacious and that's what I want to create for my living room. I definitely want an area rug and would actually love it if they removed or replaced the "I'll grow to love it" carpet that right now covers most of the apartment. In contrast, I think I definitely want my dining area to have light wood furniture, but still be elegant and a "grandma's kitchen" graduate - meaning I want a modern "fine dining" type of look but with a light touch. I have no idea what I want for my bedroom yet. The bed works great but no theme is popping out at me. I think I want to have a reading chair in there. It will come. In the meantime, I'm finding that this figuring it out thing is just another beautiful layer of self-discovery and self-expression.

You are lovely!

❤k.

Creating in True Love

The notion of fighting for True Love and the whole idea of "life getting in the way of true love" seem like one of our limiting beliefs to me. To my eyes, it's only the belief that you have to fight for love or that love is a struggle or that it is chaotic, that creates the sense and experience of it being that very way. What if we started thinking and believing that life unconditionally supports our endless experience of true love? What if our mantra became "today and every day life wants me to experience my true love"? What if we started residing in a state of mind that said "this moment is my true love made manifest"? What if we created a reality that demonstrated that life and true love are one and the same thing? What if we dropped the belief that made life an antagonist of love? How could life ever get in the way of the only thing that it is?

Life is love. Life is true love. Life itself, the whole of it, is the only true and lasting love there is. Life never interferes with Love, only our own limiting beliefs that say such things and distort Love do. Where did we come up with all these beliefs??? This whole expanse of creativity we call "living" is only Love manifesting itself. How does Love interfere with itself? Love is really all there ever is, whether we see it and receive it, or completely misinterpret it with our endless stream of limiting stories.

The more I unfold the more it seems to me like every single moment wants to show me one thing, and one thing only - that Love is all there is, that every single detail in this moment is Love, and that I am completely One with all of it. Every single thing I see and don't see, every single person that appears and doesn't appear in my reality is True Love and is a fully integrated aspect of myself!

The instant I unify myself with whoever or whatever, when I recognize that everything and everyone is an aspect of myself and is my own true love, my mind has zero complaints to generate about anything that appears in my world. My mind stops fighting with the world and embraces and unifies itself into oneness. When I'm holding this view, nothing feels like a struggle. Nothing feels like effort, work, or a fight. It ALL flows to me and through me in amazing ways. When I slip into the thought that says "all of this is my true love," even if I don't understand what it's trying to tell me, then the world before me transforms into an experience of that. If I look at a situation or a person and think "this is a cooperating aspect of my own being, this itself is my true love", every single moment, even the one's where the moment appears to defy my version of how things "ought" to be or what I had planned for them to be, turns out to be an immense blessing orchestrated by That Love that has a broader view of everything that is me and my life.

Life and true love in my eyes are completely one and the same. There is no competition between the two. Life never interferes with True Love. It can't! Only our made-up limiting stories do! So let's drop them! Let's drop the stories, the beliefs and practiced thoughts that say that there are things that can interfere with True Love! Let's make love effortless. Let's make love graceful. Lets reveal love to be fluid, endless, and easy to live in and as. Let's make true love be all that there is in every moment of our lives. Let's!

Be in love with the whole of life. Celebrate that you're here now in this creativity called living. Celebrate each moment and each being of love that comes into your sight. Celebrate each manifestation and know that it's only there to reveal to you the stories you've created and are holding on to. Let not a single appearance make you think that life is against or interfering with the flow of love in your life. Life unconditionally supports you and your experience of immense love. Beliefs that say otherwise, such thoughts that imply that you have to struggle to experience love, that there are things working against you, only create the experience to validate your beliefs. Your beliefs are powerful. Your practiced thoughts are powerful. Choose to see that this moment and every detail that it holds IS love - true and unconditional love. Choose to keep Love as your lens at all times.

When we resolve to see that True Love is all there is right now as every detail of this moment, oh the magic that overtakes the heart, the eyes, the soul of everything we are...

inside Love,

❤k.

Celebrating You

I kept her letter tucked under my arm as I walked to the bus stop this morning so I could read it a few times over on my ride to work. This is the second letter from her that my eyes and heart have been blessed to digest. She writes like a graceful storyteller. You know the kind? The kind you want to sit on the floor staring at while she reads you your favorite stories from a giant storybook, with the fire going, and maybe some hot chocolate and some yummies in your hand? That kind.

These are the kinds of elegant, beautiful, and generous characters that fill the pages of my own storybook, the pages of this amazing life that I get to wake up to each day. Life places gems, sacred soulmates, in my grasp. And they come into view again and again with new expressions of love, with new expressions of creativity, with the beauty of their being exquisitely shining through their words, their gifts, their songs, and every thing else they bring with them. Life has given me something and someone to celebrate with every waking breath that I take in this world, and so I choose to make each of my moments, moments of celebration. I choose celebrating you right now. I choose celebrating life right now.

My world is abundant with expressions of an eloquent love. I'm grateful that not only you're in my life, but that you are in this world altogether.



Who and what can you celebrate in this moment? Who and what are you grateful for?

inside Love,

❤k.

this New Place



more clips to come! I'm loving the "do everything naked in your new place" advice. thank you. what are the trees going to do about it? right?

can I just say how amazing, beautiful, and inspiring everyone in my view is? I come out of this period of intense focus that has amplified the Living Presence that I Am, into a world of inspiration and beauty-full YOU stacking YOUR moments into everything lovely. thank you for you, you in my view. thank you for asking the questions you ask. thank you for being an insight so bright and so magnificent. you are a living masterpiece.

as for the new year and the "what's your resolution" questions being tossed my way, i don't know what time is, or what a year is, or what a day is. linear time is foreign to me. i don't live in it. the only thing I know is just this moment that is the beginning and the edge of where I will ever be. I reside Here. I am here Now.

So my question as I play in this temporary world of form is, is this my best moment yet? Is this instant right here the best one I've ever had? What amazing something can happen right now? I leave this question open in positive anticipation of magic and miracles. What am I deciding Now? What do I want to accomplish right now? It isn't what I resolve to do "later" this year or in "two weeks" that sets the winds of my being any which way. What do I resolve to be right now? to feel right now? Love? What do I want to build right now? Where do I resolve to reside right Now? What am I choosing Now?

Life is immediate. Choosing is immediate. Living and Being are immediate.

Now and every now-moment that appears in this Space of the Soul is a fresh new point to decide, to choose again, to emerge again, to collapse again. and it is what we choose again and again in this immediate now-moment that stacks up to build a brilliant day, week, year, and lifetime.

No yesterday. No old year or new year to wait for. No today. No tomorrow to put things off into.

Just right Now.

So...happy right now ☺

yours,
certified tree hugger
