    Once we connect to the notion that all there is is Love, and rest in that stunning realization, the world takes on a brighter hue and fuller tone.  We ‘see’ more.  Sunrises and sunsets are glowing.  Bird songs are musical beyond comprehension.  We have a deep connection to the life giving force of Mother Nature.   We are open to and at peace with others.  We tend to stand taller.  We tend to open the heart center, and roll shoulders back and down.  We tend to breathe deeper.  We tend to be at ease, fully present, in a calm state.  We tend to think more with the heart, with our center, and stay longer out of the head.  We listen deeply and intently in each conversation.  Our gratitude surrounds us with Light; a deep glow shines from within.  Each breath is full and fulfilling.  And we let it be.


    Once we connect to the notion that all there is is Love, and rest in that stunning realization that we are exactly where we are supposed to be, doing what we are supposed to be doing, and that we are enough in that endeavor, it seems everything embraces and nurtures and supports us…we become Love.  The mysterious part of this whole process can be how long it may take.  We can witness this in a small child, and on the death bed.  We can examine a life well lived and enlightened, and a life squandered by ignorance.  We move more intuitively through the day.  We can see how connecting to our passion brings serenity to our own countenance in our youth, or in mid life, or toward the end of this life.


    This connection/union/yoking/trust…Love…lets go of judgment, competition, blame, guilt, expectation…and brings peace, always peace.
