They Will Rise Up!


Beloveds,


As people awaken in Love, they will rise up and be inspired by Truth. We Are One.
The few who have taken the resources from the majority and are living in opulence will find that their reigns are being questioned.


People will take to the streets and protest with both dignity and frustration. They will want a voice in their destiny. They will demand to be heard. They Will Demand to VOTE!


People will want more for their children and begin to protest unfair legal, social, political and economic practices that result in discrimination.


They will no longer accept living in poverty. They will want their children to have education, and homes filled with a loving peace, and bright futures.


 The majority of people will want new leaders with compassionate hearts. This time has come.


We must all hold a positive, peaceful, nonviolent resolve as we move into an era where more people want to create, live and thrive in diverse societies!


Breathe Deeply Ten Times. In Love with Hope. Out Integrity with Purpose!


Let us vow to move forward and vision positive, Loving societal transitions with Truth and Reconciliation and the sharing of resources and power!


We Are One Only In Love!

Nelson Mandela---We Honor Your Golden Threads of Love! Remembering and Honoring Tata Madiba on the First Anniversary of His Ascension...

Nelson Mandela---We Honor Your Golden Threads of Love!   Remembering and Honoring Tata Madiba on the First Anniversary of His Ascension...


I am not saddened by Ascension
of Tata Madiba
for he, Nelson Mandela
will always Live in My Heart.


His Love Songs and stories of Hope
are imprinted in My Soul
like those of Other Ascended Masters of Grace
 that live on into Eternity.


His prolific Vision, his compassionate
acts of forgiveness, humility and kindness
are the golden threads of Love
he offered graciously.


Let us continue to spin and weave
these golden threads into a more
Loving World for Our Children
many generations to come.


If I am at all saddened,
then it is only my disappointment
that we collectively have not
honored our Loving Potential
through the Grace and teachings
of Nelson Mandela.


As a gardener of Life
he has taught us humility,
compassion and the power of
respecting one another.


He believed that by honoring
our connection to the Earth-Heart
we could provide food for the World
and help heal our wounded souls.


He challenges us to believe in and work
for justice for all of Humanity.


And still we fight and kill each other
with greed, and hatred and disrespect
looming in our hearts.


I am not saddened by His Ascension
for Nelson Mandela lived a long life
and his body was frail and weak.


Instead I celebrate his Long Journey
into Love and Tata Madiba
as an Awakened Spirit.


I am hopeful that his leaving
this Earth Realm
 will help us to re-member
that there is much work
 to do if we are to
Respect, Forgive, Care For, Honor and
Love One Another
beyond hatred, greed, war and suffering.


In Honor of Nelson Mandela
and Every Ascended Loving Spirit,
I pray that we will continue to
take down the walls of classism,
racism and hate.


Let us become more invigorated
to build by sharing resources
and nurturing our children
and educating them with Love
so that we come to know
Peace in Our Hearts.


Let us pray that we are able
to collectively work
every day to create
a more Compassionate,
Sustainable World where
We All Live
in Harmony, Prosperity and Peace.


Nelson Mandela We Re-Member and Honor Your Golden Threads of Love!


UBUNTU!
 Always, Melony

Abundant Gifts...

Beloveds,


I still myself, open my heart
and Breathe Four Times. 


As I honor the vision of Our Creator;
Grace shares the Eternal Message of Love.



I Pray For Every Being.


"May All Your Brilliance Be Seen and
Recognized.



May the Fruits of Your Loving Work Be
Bountiful Beyond Imagination!



May Generosity and Love Inspire You to
Share Your Abundant Gifts with Humility.



May You Each Move Forward with a
Commitment to Empower Families and
Communities So that We All Prosper in Love
with an Abundant, Tender Peace!"



Four Times I Breathe Deeply
and with an open heart,
and Gratitude...
I Receive the Eternal Message of Love.

Prayer of Re-Membering

Beloveds,

Today I pray for strength,
courage, and hope.


I Breathe Four Times.
In Love.  Out Hope.
I release my fear.
I speak the truth.

I honor my hopeful ancestors.
I nurture my children and my entire family.

I believe in economic empowerment.

I walk as a leader,
a diplomat & a visionary.

I look at my brothers & sisters,
some lost,
and open my arms to show the way.

Together we stand
in the reflection pool
of our ancestors,
and join them in hope
and celebration of the
ongoing journey to re-membering LOVE…


With Gratitude, I Breathe!
In Love. Out Hope.

#Ferguson-- Your Ever Vigilant Heart!

#Ferguson-- Your Ever Vigilant Heart!

Beloveds---

I Breathe Deeply Ten Times.  Today I cannot find that space of empty in my mind.  Instead, I embrace every thought.

I Breathe....For Michael Brown, Eric Garner, 12 year old Tamir Rice, Akai Gurley---all unarmed and shot and killed by law enforcement officers.



I Breathe... For All those who have lost their lives due to violence and unnecessary wars or illness and suffering.

I Offer Prayers of Love and Healing for their Families, Communities and Our World.

I Breathe... In my heart are awakening cries of anger, despair and disappointment in the face of injustice.  These cries are mixed with Compassion, Hope, Mercy and Love.  There are the emotions vibrating throughout the World.
In Ferguson, New York City, Cleveland,  as well as across the United States and the World, we are moving in violent directions and causing despair to many.   In America it appears that if you are Black and unarmed, it has become a license for police to kill.


Humanity is Awakening but our addiction to fear, greed, hate and power has taken center stage.  We must remember that Hate Breeds Hate. Hate is never a Cure.

No matter how difficult or how long it may take---Only an Equitable Legal System, Forgiveness, Love, Respect, Understanding with Compassion and Mercy Offer Us Any Opportunity to Live Together In Peace with Equity. 
The  Schisms of Class, Fear, Greed, Power, Race, and Religion are at the Forefront of the Regional and Global Conversations. 
I Remember that violence and war only break hearts and create More Cycles of Violence and War.

Again,  I Breathe Deeply Ten Times.  In Courage, Patience, Forgiveness and Love.  Out Courage, Patience, Forgiveness and Love. In Courage, Patience, Forgiveness and Love.  Out Courage, Patience, Forgiveness and Love.

The Truth Is that it will take many Strong Voices, Good Listening, A Commitment to Justice, Nonviolent Actions and Vigilant Hearts to Choose to Empower Our World through Good Actions of Kindness and Love.
   
For Our Children, it is our Responsibility to Keep Raising Our Voices through Nonviolent Peaceful Actions that Call For Equity, Respect and Positive Change!

Thank YOU for Your Ever Vigilant Heart!  #ForwardFreedom

Peace is Possible through Compassion, Forgiveness, Kindness, Mercy and Love!

How Will Freedom Come?

Beloveds,


How Will Freedom Come?


Freedom Will Come Only When We ...
Let go of our selfish ways and
our pre-occupation of Fear.



We must be willing to put down our guns;
open our hearts and listen deeply to Truth.



Freedom Will Come Only When We…
Rise Up Together
and decide to fix the broken
Political, Economic, Educational
and Social Systems of Inequity.



Freedom Will Come!


In Our Hearts when we walk
across the Nation
with Hope and Strong Resolve in Silence;
we will learn the songs of the Wind
that mourns the loss
of Every Child of War and Racism and Poverty;
and call for Peace as it
whistles and sings of Love.



Freedom Will Come When We…
Desire Equity, Education
and Prosperity For ALL.

Freedom will come when we willingly
sit at the table together in Gratitude
and share our dreams, our food, our homes,
our education and our wealth.



 Freedom Will Come Only When We…
Once again notice
that Trees bend in Reverence
as Spring, Summer and Autumn Leaves
dance joyfully and teach Children
that Humans and All Sentients
Deserve to be Cared for and Loved!



Freedom Will Come as we Re-Member
that for All Our Children we must
offer Hope for their Dreams
and be willing to share Our Love.



Breathe Deeply Ten Times.
In Hope. Out Love.



What Will You Do Today
so that  Freedom Will Come
with Love and decide to Live in Our Hearts
and Our Nation?



First Breathe.  In HOPE.  Out Love!

Do More Good!

Beloveds,


If we want to solve problems and see good results, we've got to believe that good things will happen.
We've got to do more, graciously with humility and Love.
...
Sometimes we have to do more and more so that others too are inspired to believe and do more good.


And when we think we've done all the good we can, there are days that we simply have to embrace our good hopes/dreams and do one more good thing with Love!


Breathe and Exhale Deeply Four Times.
 
Embrace the Power of Divine Grace!  Decide To Do MORE GOOD!

Within each teardrop resides a longing for compassion; a desire to be heard; a hope to understand and to be understood.


Like rain, our tears can serve to nurture and cleanse our hearts, as the pain of a dis-appointment washes away through forgiveness and is replaced by Love!


Love gives us the energy and faith to honor our good dreams; and the courage to take another step into our unknown Great Destiny!

Thank You For Your Concern, Collective Prayers and Courage!

Beloveds---

Thank You For Your Concern, Collective Prayers and Courage to help build a better World where all of us have the opportunity to prosper in good health, safety, and Love; with unlimited opportunity to live and dream and contribute our unique gifts. I Appreciate YOU!

Recently I was feeling sad and thinking that my work as an ordinary citizen and spiritual peacemaker was insignificant.  A dear friend reminded me that our good actions, thoughts and prayers always do make a difference.  He also told me that alone we are not the change but instead we are the catalyst for change.  In my impatience, I had forgotten that real change, good change that is systemic and long-lasting takes a very, very long time.  And when we look at our existence as humans on Earth, this is true.  In fact, in our quest for material success, sometimes it appears that we have taken a several steps backwards.  

This is why I am asking that we take a  look at the current fearful reality that we have created so that we can move forward with a desire and a commitment to create a World with Cooperative, Sustainable Love where unlimited generations of Our Children can prosper with respect for each other, preserve and share the Earth's abundance, and live in safety with Joy.

Take a moment to still yourself.  Breathe Deeply Ten Times.  In Hope with Love. Out Hope With Love. In Hope with Love. Out Hope With Love. In Hope with Love. Out Hope With Love.

Now let us open our hearts to Truth.  In Atlanta, Chicago, New York and across the United States, in South America, Ukraine and throughout Europe, Israel, Gaza, Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Pakistan, Tibet and throughout many parts of Africa, Asia and Australia--virtually Everywhere on Earth---violence has become a part of the culture we impose on Our Children through entertainment media and improper use of technology.  Violence is also used to control others, sometimes by law enforcement, the military, militia and terrorists--- many times for political gain, in greed, in despair and desperation, even in quests for Freedom!

 And yet violence never offers hope, compassion, healing, or forgiveness.  Only Courage, Education, Mercy, Respect, Understanding, Wisdom and Love Offer Hope, Compassion, Forgiveness and Healing, As Bridges to Real Cooperation and Peace for Our Human Collective.

Please re-member to keep breathing.  In Hope with Love. Out Hope With Love.  In Hope with Love. Out Hope With Love.

We are often told by our politicians, leaders and the media that there is a just cause for violence  and war.  They tell us that every nation, and human being has a right to defend themselves.  We share and spend billions in missiles, bombs, drones and guns. How many  innocents civilians--- elders, women, men and children, have been killed in disputes in their homes, walking the streets, visiting malls or riding buses, trains and airplanes across the World?  Too Many.  Far Too Many!

And why then is it that when soldiers come back from battle, we offer inadequate resources for healing of mind, body and spirit.  How many of those wounded veterans are suffering or homeless?   Too Many.  Far Too Many!  

When we know the Truth, we have a responsibility to use the moral compass of our hearts to act as Catalysts for Good Change through Education, Cooperation and Sincere Efforts to Bring and Be the Peace!!! 

The Truth is, we ourselves must stop hating, and killing in our minds and hearts!  We must insist that our leaders and politicians become true servant leaders and advocates of Equity, Compassion, Peace and Prosperity For ALL People; honoring all Faiths and Cultures!

And Yes, real change, good change that is systemic and long-lasting does takes a very, very long time.  The road is long, steep and sometime arduous.  It will not be easy but with patience and unselfish Love, we can each use our unique gifts and become Catalysts for Good Change.

Again, Breathe Deeply. In Hope with Love. Out Hope With Love.  In Hope with Love. Out Hope With Love.

Today, let us humbly move forward with a desire and a commitment to create a World with Cooperative, Sustainable Love where unlimited generations of Our Children can prosper with respect for each other, preserve and share the Earth's abundance, and live in safety with Joy. 



Thank You For Your Concern, Collective Prayers and Courage to help build a better World!

Joy Fills Me

Beloveds,

The Me I Long to Become!



Beloveds,
I honor the Master Creator's Gift of the Wind that clears my mind and opens my heart to the door of the me I long to be.
I Breathe and Exhale Deeply Four Times.


All that I hope to become is found not externally but internally deep in the crevices of my heart.


The Wind beckons me to have Strength as clears the path of obstacles and its breeze sings the song of Love to my soul.


Like the lover who stands beside me holding my hand, the Wind propels me into the depth and radiance of unconditional Love.


Again I Breathe  and Exhale Deeply Four Times.


I allow Understanding to pour into my heart.  The Truth of my Life Purpose lives within me.


I Stand In Truth.  Love, in its Radiance provides me with Good Judgment and the Courage to move forward with the Strength to Honor and Become the Me I Long to Be!


Peace is Possible through Compassion, Forgiveness, Kindness, Mercy and Love!

ABOUT THE ANDREW GOODMAN FOUNDATION:
Andrew (Andy) Goodman was a 20-year old college student who joined Freedom Summer in 1964 to register African-Americans to vote. On his first day in Mississippi, June 21, 1964, Andy, along with James Chaney and Michael Schwerner, was murdered by the Ku Klux Klan. Andy and his contemporaries were young Americans who joined a movement to take action against injustice. Andy’s actions continue to inspire change agents globally.

Today, The Andrew Goodman Foundation is a key ally to young change agents: offering opportunities for greater civic impact, sponsoring the catalytic stories of the past, and identifying leaders and movements open to new ideas and action. Our mission is to empower the next generation to initiate and sustain creative and effective social action; we enable leaders and their communities to flourish by operating and investing in programs that advance civic engagement and intergenerational coalitions.

Life, Death and No Regret!



Beloved Radiant ONES--

Just as trees, flowers and all living things; we are all born from the Seed of Love.  Even when our bodies are frail, our Hearts grow strong when nurtured with Love.

Some of us stay here for many years, share wisdom with many others and learn great lessons.

Others stay only a short time but their Love guides and gives us courage, strength and new purpose. Through them we learn what it is to be happy even when we are very sad!

Joy comes when we learn to support and nurture each other with compassion and share our special moments.
 
Hopefully we learn quickly to say what is in our hearts and to live with No Regret--- because sometimes we are asked to offer our tender goodbyes when we just became comfortable and said a Loving hello!

And Yes, it is true-- Every beautiful flower will wilt and return to the Earth; and strong trees may fall in a storm and die; but the Roots of Love are Eternal and can remain and blossom in our minds and our hearts throughout Eternity in the Circle of Life and Love!

Peace is Possible through Compassion, Forgiveness, Kindness, Mercy and Love!
