Creative Cooperative Love

Beloved Radiant Ones--

In Gratitude for the privilege of life, I give thanks to the Master Creator! Honoring the Magnificence of Earth, I Breathe Deeply 10 times. Breathing with patience, I clear my mind of old fears and past failure. Some will call me a fool as I let go and prepare to move forward with Love. I believe true success is tied to our willingness to communicate and share our privilege through teamwork.

In this New Year, I will use my creativity to stir the pot of Truth by offering my thoughts and visions of Humanity's potential to walk with Grace and Wisdom through Love. Again I breathe deeply, and honor the creativity, the power, the wisdom, and collective wealth present on Earth-Heart in this New Era.

I pray that many, many hearts awaken so that Our Children and Our World will prosper through in Healthy Safe Communities!

Happy New Year!  Happy New Era of LOVE!!!

Balance is Purpose/ The Kwanzaa Principle NIA

Beloved Radiant Ones---

Some say there will be sorrow if you borrow tomorrow.
That is why I look always into the Heart of Today.

I Breathe Deeply 8 Times.

With each breath I ask for balance and total awareness of Love in this moment, Right Now. 

For me, this is My Purpose.  In Swahili, NIA means Purpose.

My Purpose is to move forward into time's loop of eternity; knowing that the imprint of Eternal Love can heal every moment of yesterday's sorrow Now.

Through our forgiveness and a willingness to Love More, we pave the way for More Joy Today and Tomorrow.

 My Purpose is to Love More! 

That Which I Desire/ Kwanzaa Principle of Ujamaa/Cooperative Economics


Beloved Radiant Ones---

How will I navigate and learn to swim if I am fearful of water?  Learning to swim is like trusting that Love can help me let go of my fear of all the Fish navigating the Waters of Hope.

I Breathe Deeply Seven Times. With gratitude, commitment and trust, I step into the Waters of Hope.

The whispers of Love beckon me to imagine myself as a dolphin-- joyful, playful; kind and loving.

Today, with gratitude and trust, I make a commitment to offer my Love to the many fish swimming, and also learning to navigate the Waters of Hope!

That which I Desire of Love, I Must Give in Love.

Beloved Radiant Ones---

The Moon and the Stars light the night sky with hope 
so that even in darkness we find our way. 

At daybreak the Sun rises and awakens the world. 
Ocean tides shift as fish journey. 

Slumbering trees feel the gentle breeze of the Wind 
and birds greet us with a morning song.

together in Loving Unity.

Unity/Umoja--Happy Kwanzaa

Dear Radiant STARS--

I am thinking of YOU this first day of Kwanzaa and hoping that You feel My Love and the Love of All Sentient Beings as Umoja.  

When we come together in Unity/Umoja, Our Blessings Multiply through Divine GRACE!  Happy Kwanzaa!

Feel the Drum Beat/ Kwanzaa Principle of Umoja/Unity

Beloved Radiant Ones---

 I Breathe Deeply Four Times as I sit, hear and feel the vibration of prayers of Buddhists, Christians, Jews and Moslems. 

My heart opens Even More as I breathe again and again.  

Now I feel the Drum Beat calling All Indigenous People who honor Our Mother Earth in her Majesty and Her Waters that Sustain Us.   So many people have forgotten The Mother.  

I Breathe again with Appreciation and Understanding.  I Re-Member to Honor Mother Earth-Heart!  

Every time we choose patience or tolerance; every act of compassion or hope; every faithful word, and action offered with unselfish Love brings Joy to the Mother and Father  Creator of the Uni-Verse.

Wonder and JOY---Happy Holy Days

Beloved Radiant Ones--

Within Me Lives All the times of Christmas Past;
 times filled with a questioning wonder and Joy.

 I remember celebrating the birth of the Christ Child
by singing and making gifts and cards with snowflakes;
decorating the tree with popcorn, tinsel and glass bulbs;
helping My Mom bake cookies; attending Mass;
visiting my Grandparents and Great-Grandparents;
playing with the cousins
and wondering why some people weren't happy.

 No matter how little or much we had,
My Mom always taught me to be kind
and share with Others;
 Be Joyful and to Pray for a World of Peace with Love!

Today I Breathe Deeply Six Times.

 As I remember Every Christmas Past,
I promise that I will Be Kind and Share with Others;
Walk with Wonder and Joy
and Pray for a World of Peace and Love!

 Please Join Me in Prayer!

Sing JOY to the World

Beloved Radiant Ones--

I Breathe Deeply Four times and honor the Spirit of Christ that lives in my heart as Love.

I Breathe Deeply again and allow the Pathway to Peace to open in my heart.

I pray that even in our broken hearts, we hear Angels sing of Love;
and feel their presence as they shimmer and sparkle with JOY as we share our Doves of Forgiveness, Compassion and Peace.

I Breathe again and again and Honor the Creator.

Today I ask only to share my Love with others so that we may come together in Gratitude and sing JOY to the World!

A Joyful Awakening

Beloved Radiant Ones---

Throughout Time in Every Society across Earth-Heart there has been a small minority who beguiled the Innocent and selfishly claimed power as they became seduced by evil.

Generation after generation, this minority has used hate and fear to control and subjugate humanity through conflict, wars and weapons of mass destruction. They have used Mother Earth's resources and created suffering and imbalance. They built fortresses so that they alone lived in luxury---

And Yet for The Majority, Good has prevailed and flourished like Sparkling Stars that light the Night Sky with Love.

 Asking for clarity, I Breathe Deeply and Slowly Six Times.

 In my Awakened State, I feel the Great Shift and see the Unlimited Potential of Good Shining Brightly through Broken Hearts of Love.

With humility I Honor the Master Creator of Every Uni-Verse! In Gratitude I find the strength to embrace and serve the Awakening Good that lives in my heart and the hearts of The Majority!

Compassion, gentle truth and right words of Peace will nurture and heal our broken societies through Love!

 I Breathe Again, and finding Courage and Integrity within; I offer myself as a joyful instrument of Peace and Everlasting Love.

 I Wish You All A Joyful Awakening in Love! 

Walking With Kinship

Beloved Radiant Ones---

So many of us attend Churches, Mosques, Temples or Religious Gatherings and listen to messages of dogma; pray that we are right and walk out the door with selfish intent that dictates unholy actions.

Tolerance and Respect for Others means letting go of any dogma that promotes superiority.

I Breathe Deeply Four Times and clear my heart of the dogma of separation.

True Love is driven by compassion, good discernment, gratitude, kindness, kinship and respect for All.

 I Breathe Again and Again; until I hold a commitment to listen deeply and allow Love, with its Holy Spirit of Cooperation and Grace to be the consistent motivation and force in my every thought and action! I Am A Being of True Love!

Butterflies of Hope

Beloved Radiant Ones--- 

For so long the Caterpillar had walked and lived in fear of dying. Life was short and saying goodbye to family and friends was difficult.  

The cocoon was prepared as layers of fear shed away and unknowing was embraced as Acceptance and Peace. 

Resting in the safety of the cocoon, Peace brought New Awareness and an Awakening of Love.  And one day, the Caterpillar re-emerged  as a Beautiful Butterfly.   

We are like Caterpillars learning to shed our fear. Acceptance of Truth and Inner Peace transform us.  As We Awaken in Love, We Soar in Goodness and become the Beautiful Butterflies of Hope for Humanity!

Honor the Best of YOU!

Beloved Radiant Ones--- 

Whatever you do, Don't Give Up On Humanity!  

I have learned from My Mom that no matter the aches and pains or disappointment of living, when you honor yourself and relationships by deciding to live with forgiveness and patient understanding,  then Love nurtures, heals and blossoms in JOY.  

Today I Breathe Deeply Four Times.  

I allow the light of Love to move through me, like a wind of hope-filled JOY.  

I will not give up on Humanity! 

All of life's lessons offer me the wisdom and strength to Believe in Good, and to try to offer the Best of Myself Every Day!  

Happy New 79th B'Earth Year Mom!  
You Have Taught Me Well!

Every Memory

Beloved Radiant Ones---
 
I offer Gratitude for the memories of Love; worn,
weathered and etched into the stones of time.
 
I Breathe deeply six times and decide to love
all the secret haters.
 
I honor every memory that has caused my heart
to be broken by offering forgiveness and Love.
 
Tears come easily and act to create a pathway
for new love in my heart as I weep
and mourn every loss.
 
Solace comes through compassion as I express
my sorrow but decide to step into the New Day
and move Forward with Love.
 
I Breathe Deeply and again offer Gratitude
for the memories of Love.
Some are painful.
Others are Joyful.
 
Eventually all that happens in our lives
becomes like worn memories of Love;
weathered and etched into the stones of time
that comfort and teach us that for every problem;
Love is the worthy solution.
 
I Breathe in Awakening.
Love is the only way I can know Peace
and Live with Peace in my Heart!

Every Tragedy is a Call For Action

Every Tragedy is a Call For Action


Freedom Will Come!

In Our Hearts when we walk in Silence,

we will learn the songs of the Wind that mourns the loss

of Every Child of War;

and calls for Peace as it whistles and sings of Love.

We will once again notice that Trees bend in Reverence

as Autumn Leaves dance joyfully and teach Children

that Humans and All Sentients deserve to be cared for and loved!

Freedom will come only when we ...

put down our guns, and open our hearts and listen deeply to Truth.

Freedom will come when we willingly sit at the table together in Gratitude.

Freedom will come in the Silence, when we share our food,

our homes, and wealth;

and Our Children teach us to once again to sing the Love Song of Peace!

Every Tragedy is a Call For Action !


Freedom Will Come!

In Times of Change


Beloved Radiant Ones--- 

You have Awakened.  Now Breathe.  Think of the good dream that lives in your heart. 
Breath Deeply Six Times.  The dream requires a willingness to be flexible in times of Change.  

Breathe.  How will you change and grow in Love? 

 "There is nothing to fear" says the Mother and Father of the Uni-Verse.  

Breathe deeply and feel the song of Angels. They sing the Creator's Song.  

"We Believe in You. We will Always Support Your Good Dreams of Love!  
We Celebrate You. We Cherish You. We Love You Forever." 

Breathe Deeply.  In these Times of Change, Listen carefully to the Song of Love.  
Live the rhythm and the words. Walk and Dance In Grace!

Share a Keepsake!

Beloved Radiant Ones---

 So often we take the gifts and blessings that others offer for granted.  
We assume that people feel our thank yous and appreciation.  

Technology has made us lazy.  

Remember when you were a child and you had no money so you made gifts for birthdays and holidays?  So many of us have forgotten the importance of sending notes and cards with special greetings.  

We bypass these small significant keepsakes for store bought gifts of obligation that we run to exchange because we don't like or value the gift.  

Do Something Different.  

Give generously to those in need, even strangers. Make Good Memories!  

Then honor a friend, or a loved one by sharing a Keepsake of Gratitude and Love!

Breathe and Believe!

Beloved Radiant Ones---

If we live always attached to yesterday's fears, mistakes, or sorrows, then we will not be able to see the Joy of possibility today.    Breathe deeply and say  "I let go of past pain and open my heart in Gratitude with Courage and Hope.  I allow Faith to guide me as I prepare to take the next step.  I Breathe and in my mind decide that I will do my best to live fully in the moment so that I may see and feel the  Joy and Possibility of this Exquisite New Day!"  Breathe and allow yourself to Believe!

Re-Birthing YOU

Beloved Radiant Ones---

It is through our positive thoughts and daily compassionate actions of forgiveness, kindness, unselfishness and mercy; and through our good attempts to understand, appreciate and accept the differences of others, that every day we are given the opportunity to grow into beings Spiritually Re-birthed in Love!

On True Compassion

Beloved Radiant Ones---  

Having written a note to herself on learning acceptance, The Woman shared with many others on the web, showered, dressed for work and felt love in her heart. She traveled from Harlem to Brooklyn on the 3 train and arrived at work resolved to share her best self.  

Later sitting at a co-worker's cubicle, she heard her phone ring and ran to answer it.  It was the tenor of an old familiar voice, one that she had known for 44 years that stunned, and left her almost speechless with joy.  After she spoke to him, her Spirit was relieved for she felt his love in friendship, and knew without condition that he believed in her goodness.  

She valued his friendship and knew well of The Man's true compassion and goodness. That affirmation of truth re-affirmed her path and she spent the day listening and helping others.  Later her joy stung with gentle regret.  

Knowing The Man had been through many challenges since they had last spoken, in the shortness of the call she had not asked what kind of surgery had he had.  Nor had she offered her condolences on the deaths of those precious to him.  She also had forgotten to inquire about his family.  

She only hoped that somehow The Man felt her compassion and concern. Upon awakening the very next day, The Woman offered Prayers of Apology. 

In life we are given many rhythms to dance.  Sometimes we take a solo, step into a duet or follow the ensemble. 

The Woman realized that she was still learning to dance to the graceful rhythms of True Compassion.  She offered Gratitude and prayed for the well-being of The Man and His Family.  May They All Be Blessed!

You Light the Earth/Heart

Beloved Radiant Ones---

There is only One YOU that Lights the Earth/Heart and the Heavens with Your Unique Gift.  Other share their gifts too and All in Our World benefit from the Uniqueness and Individuality of Every Sentient Being.  All Gifts of brilliance, creativity, compassion, faith, mercy and Love bring Hope and Joy to the World!  What is Your Gift?  How do you bring Hope and Joy to the World?  There is only One YOU that Lights the Earth/Heart and the Heavens with Your Unique Gift!

Perhaps we are all meant to be like beautiful, delicious fruit blossoming and ripening through stages and the seasons of the Garden of Life on Earth/Heart. Today because I offer my attention with care,  I am able to see the good in others and to appreciate their differences as blossoming fruit and ripening gifts to be nurtured, harvested  and shared in Love!
