If they were sleeping next to you, if you needed to wake them, would you touch their arm, stroke their hair, whisper to them softly? Would you smile and wait for them to stir? Would you let them know that they are safe? If they were sleeping next to you, in this country, would you keep the watch? Would you keep them safe? And though they slept, would you love them regardless? Would you love them as only the fully awake can love? Because they have fallen. And it is time. It is time to rise. It is time to touch their arm, to stroke their hair, to whisper and make them stir. It is time to rise together, to keep the watch, keep us all safe, and be fully awake as one people. If we are to win this world, it is time to rise in hope, wisdom, truth, fearlessness, dignity, respect, compassion, and most importantly love.
The mind cannot see the soul, being, spirit, essence, intuition, feel the cravings of unlimited expansion, transcendence of idea, ontological presence, visceral download of magic, the magic which is you, your life, your vibration, consciousness, growth, longing, mystical, psychic you. Useful little thing, but narcissistic, claiming to run the world. Mind doesn’t. It makes lists, learns facts, remembers phone numbers, how to log on, reminds (re-mind, creating suffering again and again) you of past fear, PAST fear. But the heart, source, core, universe, creation, elemental, experiential root of our existence, passion giving rise to greater life, is love, the belief (be live) in self, the ‘I am enough’ greatness, the perfect imperfection of ourselves on this physical plane of action. Love.
I am grateful for each of you following my blog, dipping into The Practice of More Love daily going beyond the fear of, the lie of the mind, realizing, (real eyesing) the love that is all around you, following the charm that leads you to the next right thing and the next right thing.

Say ‘Yes’ to Your Heart. Always. All Ways.
What if this holiday season, you opened your eyes in the morning, and began to name something you liked? What if you thanked yourself for naming something you liked? What if you named something you liked all day? And what if you thanked yourself all day? How would that feel? What if you practicing, as a point of focus, naming something you liked, was your life? What if you filled yourself, your spirit, your soul with something you liked throughout the season? What if your holiday destination, was a point of focus and not an outcome? What if you feasted your eyes on something you like, until it became your real life, one that allowed you to appreciate all that you are and all that you have? What if you knew you were enough?
Much of what mind issues, due to its primal nature, is fear-based. This can be evidenced by persistent, negative mind thoughts, that have nothing to do with present circumstance. You might hear things like, ‘Whatever it is, don’t. Its never going to work out. This is silly. You should stay home. Wow, you really screwed up this one. You and your schemes are ridiculous. You’ve humiliated yourself again.’
Instead of entertaining the musing of your primal-based, reptilian brain, why not do something else? Call a friend. Blow bubbles. Count gerbils. Step away from the mind thought. Your mind thought is distracting, detracting from an otherwise perfectly wonderful life experience. Practice selective hearing. Don’t let mind get in the way of your true purpose. Your life, your worthiness, that’s the point of focus. Mind is the distraction. If you want your life, distract the distraction.
What if today, you played the mirror game? What if you could see that what they spoke was always, all ways, a reflection of them? What if every time they pointed at you, they were actually pointing at themselves? What if everything they said revealed or concealed (and because they are concealing, revealing everything) something about them? What if you realized, (real eyesed) that it was never, ever about you? That it’s always about them? What if you could see that? What would you see?
