Tag Archives: CHOOSE LOVE


My first visit in Cyberspace this morning was to a blog that I enjoy by a young woman named Bella.  http://cupcakesandangels.wordpress.com/   This is actually her brand new blog.  It’s significantly different from her previous blog and still she is a woman that is full of heart and she brings that into her new blog.

What she reminded me of for my first filling up with thoughts and feeling this morning is, keeping an Open Heart.  Not new information, or something I don’t consider daily, more that she is another touch stone for that remembering to move through life with an Open Heart.    As well as to allow in the experience of creating a loving, positive, joyful life in the good ol’ Be Here Now.  Ya’ll know how I love my Be here Now.

Imagine your life an endless wonder of creative force that you allow to move through and with you?  Limited only by our thoughts.  Certainly, physical limitation may curtail some of that physical creative force, and a heart open and mind centered on positive reality, considering always the ‘highest good’, still has the ability to maintain and hold great joy and incredible body/mind/spirit well being.

So, when I write all the things that roll out of me here on these pages, it is my way of remembering who I really am and have always been.  “I am a spiritual being having a human experience.”  And, I get to choose how to have that no matter the physical consequence of my being here.  I choose Love, being challenged every day to see if I really mean it.

Right now IS all there is.    I choose Love over fear.

Choose me...

All thoughts matter in the matter of things; in the manifestation of everything

you see is a thought and your eyes behold it.

Look around at all the creations that someone thought up and now you either use it,

or want it, or feast your eyes on it’s incredibleness.

There is no mystery to the choice of seeing beauty to the choice of holding pain

Choice is endless and abundant.

Even in the choices that struggle for the feel good to wrap yourself around

Another choice opens to a new set of choice and so on

As you find your way to your heart’s opening and strip away the negative container

That you made up in some choice in the long ago to hold you

Scrap that negative thinking and fear of what isn’t and might be in the later on.

Give it up to the wind or, the sea, or to Source, or to the fire to burn it away.

This moment holds your highest and greatest good. Here … NOw.

In my early years of experiencing poetry, I always thought it had to rhyme and have specific stanza in some sort of orderly fashion.  Much of what I read once past 14, seemed so esoteric and confusing.  I would wonder, what the heck did all that mean cause people were saying it’s good and amazing and …. well, very little of it made sense to me not even if I urged myself to read the poem over several times.  I was turned off and dismissed it.  Except for Dr. Seuss, cause he was playful and rhythmic and comprehensible in a totally entertaining way.  right?


My first real feeling for poetry came in my late teens with Kahlil Gibran  and his book The Prophet.  Everything about his words touched me.  The spirit of his writing, his story telling, the lack of rhyme, the flow, the human connection to being connected to each other; I felt pulled into something grand and meaningful in a way I guess I was ready to ‘hear’ and be engaged in.  I have given that book to many people over the years.


Poetry that moves me, seems to be the melding of nature and the human Spirit.  The metaphor found in what is outside of us living inside of us.  The magnificent connection to what might seem unlikely, and yet is perfectly aligned with some kind of Alchemy that makes stars out of dirt and leaves.  The beauty in the asymmetry of life and the rising of love from the heart’s remembrances.


There has never been a time I have not loved you

Even in the despicable face of your violence and insanity

Love resides, I just forgot in the fear of it

Fear and Love suffer with no embrace

Until I love the fear away in my awakening


I will find a way to Love the fear away

When the earth cracks open, and the sea consumes,

and vortex of wind sucks away life, and

Sun gives no relent for weeks.


And you, swallowed the seasons in their terror

to gather and spewed them from your pain and fear

in every way the ‘dark night of your soul’ could

I will love you anyway.


Love is the way to peace.  It’s the way through fear.

I choose love.
