My Life Is A Colorful Work In Progress!

My Life Is A Colorful Work In Progress! 

My Life Is A Colorful Work In Progress.  
The picture painted in my heart is still incomplete.  

The vibrant blues and greens and oranges show my many failures that lead way to greater successes. 

The red, purple and yellow hearts remind me of all that I have lost, and each time I have fallen. 

Humility drew the hearts as she helped me up and taught me Love's Truth. 

Compassion, Forgiveness, Integrity and Mercy teach me how to move through the tunnels of Sorrow; and know both Joy and Peace.  

My Life Is A Colorful Work In Progress.  
It  has a beautiful texture of Hope; and through every Storm, Faith becomes My Rainbow of Understanding!

Always, Melony 

Peace Is Possible through Compassion, Cooperation, Courage, Creativity, Deep Listening, Faith, Forgiveness, Good Purpose, Hope, Integrity, Kindness, Mercy, Patience, Respect, Understanding and the Gift of Love!

Be a Witness!

Be A Witness!

Beautiful People,

Breathe Deeply Six Times. With each breath, Breathe In the Joy of A New Day.  Breathe Out Love and Possibility.

You will cross barren deserts of despair and find an Oasis of Understanding. You will swim through Lakes of Joy and sail the Oceans of Wisdom.

All this YOU, the Seeker Dreamer will do as you witness, learn, change, grow and become your true self in Love!

Nurture the Dream!

Nurture the Dream!!!

In today's society, even those we Love, we judge! We want them to dress, walk, and talk in a way that makes us feel superior. 

We have been conditioned to manipulate others, to fight and to use words that harm even when we talk of Peace.

Good Communication requires a willingness to stop and listen. 

Take a moment to clear the pathway of your heart.  

Breathe Deeply.  Open your heart. 

Listen beyond judgment. 

Breathe In Gratitude for every conversation of Hope. 

Please Re-member, Our True Purpose is to use our gifts to inspire, support and empower others so that we all blossom in Love. 

Today Water Your Human Garden of Hope with Love. 

Together Let Us Nurture the Dream of Freedom and an Equitable Loving Peace.

Always, Melony

Breathe Deeply Ten Times. 
With each breath Inhale Love.  As you Exhale, begin to allow yourself and all others compassion and forgiveness. 

Breathe Slowly and now, allow Courage, Integrity and Mercy to take your hand.

Their compassion, forgiveness, patience and tenacity sparkle like emeralds with the hope of Unity. 

Feeling the Divine Energy of Love, again Breathe Deeply.

As Citizens, We Will Rise Up!

As Citizens, We Will Rise Up!
Beloveds,
As People Awaken in Love, We Will Rise Up and Be Inspired by Truth. We Are One Only In Love!
The Minority who have taken the resources from the Majority, and are living in opulence will find that their reigns are being questioned.
Citizens will take to the streets and protest with both Dignity and Frustration. People Will Want a Voice in Their Destiny.
As Citizens, We Will Demand to Be Heard. People Will Continue To Demand the Right to VOTE. People Will No Longer Accept Racism As a Way of Life.
People will want more for their Children and begin to protest unfair legal, social, political,  economic, and immigration practices that result in discrimination.

People will no longer accept living in poverty. They will want their Children to have quality education, affordable healthcare, homes filled with a Loving Peace, and Bright Futures with Good Opportunity.

The Majority of People Will Want 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 Equitable, Respectful Societies!

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

Let Us All Vow to Move Forward, and Vision Positive, Loving Societal Transitions with Truth and Reconciliation with the Sharing of Resources and Power!

Knowing We Are One Only In Love...
AS CITIZENS, WE WILL RISE UP!

Earth Is the Heart of Our Blessed Creator!

Earth Is the Heart of Our Blessed Creator!

Beautiful People. ..

Please Re-Member that Earth is the Heart of Our  Blessed Creator!

The breath of Love is the oxygen in the air we breathe that also helps the flowers, plants, and trees grow; and birds sing.

Love swims through every ocean, river and lake that helps sustain us as the ripples and waves sing the love song of the Uni-Verse.

Harmony teaches us to live and sing the Loving song with peace and joy in our hearts!

Being in Harmony means that we care for and respect all sentient beings of the Creator's Heart. 

Breathe and Exhale Deeply Ten Times.

In Love with Hope and Gratitude!
Out Love with Hope and Gratitude! 

In Love with Hope and Gratitude.
Out Love with Hope and Gratitude....

Today Try to Be Positive, Optimistic and Determined to Live with Compassion, Good Purpose, Gratitude and Love!

Always, Melony

Spirit Ramblings. . .

Celebrating Our Earth-Heart!

Spirit Ramblings...

My heart dreams often…
looking into the eyes of strangers
seeing Love, feeling Love.

For they are not strange to me.

Often it is a brother or sister, maybe even a mother, a father or a dear friend from a past life.

I wonder do they know me too or are my soul ramblings vivid only to myself?

My thoughts are so intense, viewing yesterdays and tomorrows as if they are today.

The concept of time escapes me.

But come let us travel around the galaxy and share joy.  Our hearts know no limitations
for we can be One with the Divine through Love.

‘And what is Love?’  You ask.

Love is a rainbow or a smile glistening like a star at night.

Love is a storm readjusting & cleansing the Earth-Heartso that plants will grow and we may feeleven the sizzle of an ant and know bliss.

Love is opening your heart and feeling the wisdom of an oak treeor the magical transformation of a caterpillar to a butterfly.

Love is walking along the shore; your feet gently nestled in the sand with ocean water caressing your legs and the smell of a salt breeze kissing your face as you watch the sun set or the moon rise, and ponder swimming with the dolphins.

Love is believing that ALL people are gifts from the Divine and knowing that each of us is related and interconnected with every other sentient being.

Love is everything, everywhere.

Love is co-creating with the Divine.

‘How do we co-create?’  You ask.

Imagine that when your fingers tingle for no apparent reason that That is the Divine teaching you, helping you to understand what it is like
when a flower blooms.

Or perhaps when you experience unexplainable tears of joy, your heart is opening, expanding like a womb when a baby is being born.

And so on some level, you too understand the bliss of motherhood.

You smile.  That is good.

My spirit ramblings have often brought me much laughter.

Laughter can release fear and helps us understand one another.

Laughter is for me a desire for Grace.  A desire to reconnect with other souls.

My heart feels many thoughts around me.

Some are asking…
‘How can we co-create the bliss of Love?’
‘It is not possible.’  You say.

Here Is a Question for You…
If it is possible to feel my heart beat
“boom ba ba ba boom ba boom ba ba ba boom”, is it because you remember Love
or is it the fear that one you hold dear
will leave again?

Do not answer, but muse in your heart.
Re-Member, it is time to Forgive.
Time Only to Love.

Now come, let us travel together on our Soul Journey Back to the Divine.

Always, Melony

Ode to Prince!

Ode To Prince. Ode To Prince!

Dearest Prince,

You always knew you were an Angel and We Knew It Too.

You Brought the Energy of Love and Truth Everywhere You Went.

You Taught Us Integrity, Showed Us Your Humaness, Stood Up for Justice and Gave Us Hope.

We Watched You...You Came Here An Angel with An Awakened Spirit.

Heaven Blessed You with a Symphony In Your Generous Heart.

You Played 27 Instruments and We Were Awed.

Your Melodies Helped Us through Challenging Times.

And Yet Like Marvin Gaye or Michael Jackson and So Many Other Ancestors and Great Ones;

We Didn't Really Listen Or Understand That YOu Were Heaven Sent.

Prince, You Have Left Us for Now and Yet, You Will Live In Many of Us.

One Day We Too Will Learn to Cherish Each Moment and Offer Compassion and Kindness and Love.

Your Creative Genius Is the Blessing that We Will Forever Embrsce Beyond Time and Into Eternity.

Thank You for Your Light, Music, Wisdom and Love.

You Will Live Always In Our Minds and Our Hearts.

We Will Re-Member. We Will Re-Member!

Beloved Prince, Thank You for A Life On Earth Well Lived and Eternal Melodies of Grace.

You Are An Angel, Returned to the Eternal Heavens of Grace!

Always, Melony McGant

Evidence of a Holy Light!

Evidence of a Holy Light!

When we have no evidence
of an outcome
but believe in  good anyway,
then we have Faith.

Faith is the light of Love
that  opens the door
to the Uni-versal Heart.

Within the Uni-versal Heart
we can walk with compassion
and share our collective dream
of Love  through kindness.

It is then that Grace moves
through us giving evidence
of a Holy Light
that magnifies and heals.

Through  Faith, we become
the Loving outcome of Hope
and learn to live as beings
of Light and Love.

Today be kind and have Faith
in the benefit  of
each Loving action!

Ten Times Breathe In Love. 

With each breath,
Slowly Exhale Love.

You Are the Evidence.

You Are a Holy Light of Hope!

Always, Melony

Moral Ambiguity. . .

About Moral Ambiguity...

Hello Beautiful People,

Some of us like to prove that we are smarter, have more or know more. 

We consider ourselves successful by the cars we drive, the size of our homes, the size of our bank accounts or job titles. 

All these things are are morally ambiguous when Children and Families have little or no food, Inadequate Healthcare and No Viable Educational  or Economic Opportunities for Growth.

And yet, In the Heart of Our Blessed Divine Creator, YOU Are the Beloved! 

Most important in our lives is our willingness to create a World where All Our Children are well educated, safe, nurtured, and loved.  

When We Honor and Respect Our Elders and Eachother, then our resources become Gifts used to strengthen communities with compassion, integrity, kindness and cooperation and collective prosperity.

With Clarity, Breathe Deeply and Exhale Slowly Four Times.  

If we are to truly prosper and live without fear, then we must come to understand that hate, greed and selfishness are poisons that destroy hearts. 

Again, Breathe Deeply and Exhale Slowly Four Times. 

Today Say to Yourself. ..

I Am learning to walk as a Vessel of Hope and Share My Gifts.

I Am willing to Be the Peace and Live in Peace!

I Am willing to Build Bridges of Compassion and Cooperation with Integrity so that the World around me may prosper as we come to Know, Be and Share Love!

Please Re-Member... Peace Is Possible through Compassion, Cooperation, Courage, Creativity, Deep Listening, Faith, Forgiveness, Hope, Integrity, Kindness, Mercy, Patience, Respect, Understanding and the Gift of Love!

And So It Is With Love!

Always,

Melony

Katherine Dunham #OPRAHLegend

Remembering Miss Dunham!   Her Words Live in My Heart!

Honoring Humanitarian and  Dance Icon Miss Katherine Dunham #OPRAHLegend

Katherine Dunham Speaks Out on Dunham Technique, Today's World Violence Leaders, and Hope by Melony McGant .

Anthropologist, choreographer, writer and humanitarian Katherine Dunham has been called a visionary, a pioneer, and a living legend. She has been a major force in dance, and is best known for incorporating African American, Caribbean, African, and South American movement style themes into her ballets. She has appeared in more than 57 countries around globe, received recognition from UNESCO as well as heads of state, and is the recipient of hundreds of awards and honorary doctorates including the U.S. Presidential Award, Kennedy Center Honors, the Albert Schweitzer Award, Essence Magazine Awards, the National Black Theatre Festival Lifetime Achievement Award, and was one of Oprah's Legends.

Originally recorded in 2002 at the Miss Katherine Dunham's residence in NYC, portions of this conversation have appeared in African Voices Magazine (a much longer version) and Tribes Magazine. In this interview with Melony McGant, Miss Dunham shares her heart, and hopes for a World of Peace, as she passes us the baton.

Miss Katherine Dunham was born in Chicago on 22 June, 1909 and left this Earth Realm and Ascended to the heaven Realm on May 21, 2006. She Is Re-membered with Love!

MM: It's been said that the Dunham Technique has strong implications and affiliations to the "other world."

KD: I feel that to know Dunham Technique you have to be willing to accept the holistic view of life. That is the body, mind and spirit work together. They don't work separately from each other. They grow together and unite. You have to be aware that these things do not operate alone, they operate together. So when you are deeply into Dunham Technique and are performing the choreography or are teaching, or learning, then all of those parts of your body begin to sing. And they begin to sing not in solo voices but in unison. It's like striking a wonderful chord and the response from the person who is receiving is so great that the teacher grows from it too. You can not be a teacher of Dunham Technique without receiving back from the pupil or the person that you teach.

MM: Sometimes the student could get lost out there in their own meditation and become ecstatic . How can a teacher know when to bring them back?

KD: By identification. By being able to identify with others. The good teacher is so sensitive, so willing to know and love, and be a part of ... The open minded student feels that. It's like the audience. The audience wouldn't be there if they didn't want to be there. The minute you step on to the stage you have to feel their awareness and willingness and gather it into your whole being. Every move that you make goes out with love and with an understanding of body, mind and spirit being united into one feeling, being, one "itness," so that you are a successful performer and your audience is able to receive with an open self.

MM: How can a teacher help a student understand that?

KD: I'd say don't talk about it. Just be it. Do it and be it. A lot of teachers try to explain. There's a little explanation, maybe. If you help your student eat the right thing, breath the right thing, feel the right thing, be aware of good things. It can help ... For instance, you might suggest that your student attend a concert that will immediately fit into their needs. Knowing the needs of other people is one of the hard things about BEING. I don't say to a student don't do this or don't do that. I just try to show them. You know what was so wonderful about Erich Fromm ... He'd ask me questions instead of telling me how to be over my malaise or unhappiness or whatever it was, he'd ask me questions that would lead me to the Balm and Gilead for me. And that I think is what a good friend or a true psychoanalyst, a truly worthy element in your life does ... It is to guide you through love.

MM: How do you feel about what's happening in the World"?

KD: What's happening in the world today is very, very hard on me. It is so awful, so terrible, so painful and so many people suffering. It's a fact. It's here with us. It's ridiculous to think that your government is going to ease your pain. As I look at it I say ... For God's sake I say don't go and kill to compensate for killing.

MM: This is a hard question for me to ask. Do you have any anger about anything?

KD: Anger. Oh yes, that's a part of activism. If I do not approve of what you are doing, then I will do everything I can to stop it. I will bring all of my strength to stop it. I am not in agreement, I am not in accord ... I am angry at what is happening in this world today. I wouldn't be me if I tried to suppress that anger, I'd be false ... hypocritical. I don't have to put it on anyone else. You don't have to be angry with me if that's not the way you feel. But above all don't try to stop me from being angry.

MM: If you were speaking to our world leaders, what would you say?

KD: Well to most of them I would say: "You do not belong in a position of leadership. You have not overcome self. You don't really love humanity, yourself included. You are not a leader. Stop and look at it and study it, realize it and change it. Change yourself or step aside and help someone else take the position that you feel you are fulfilling but you're not." And I'd say: "Stop and think and don't try to put aside, or shut your eyes to those things that are showing you where you've made mistakes. Open your heart to these things inside and help. Be sure that your every breath, every thought, every movement, every deed is being helpful to someone or something. Be sure that you are honest and true."

MM: How do you feel about this violence?

KD: It should have no place in human living.

MM: Are all religions the same? Not the dogma, but the spirit?

KD: I think that intellectually they sound as though they are the same. Intellectually they all say we believe in our God. We want to do what that one God says do but we see errors that are committed because between God and action comes man. And man is by no means perfect creature.

MM: And the United States?

KD: The United States is a great big hypocrite bully. Our God has chosen to give us ... .a means of conquering ... but when you are power driven, you are bound to turn to destruction and violence.

MM: What do you want to tell my generation and the children ... those who come after. What should we be doing?

KD: You should be aware. And of course always be forgiving. You can judge but I don't feel that we have within us the right to hold forth any blessings. God does that. And I would say be aware and be giving. Know how to take, how to receive and how to give. Be sure that both are operating always in your life. If you feel strongly about a cause, don't push it on people but be willing to defend it when it is necessary. Just one word, that one word love is strongest. Know all the different phases of love and have them all in your life. And be able to live with them.

MM: Could you give me a couple of examples of love that you were thinking of ?

KD: Well, you certainly have to know self-love. Erich (Fromm) was probably the founder of that... belief in yourself and a love of yourself. Be kind and gentle with yourself and everything else. Try to avoid, and succeed in avoiding injury to others. Live life with kindness and live life with love.

MM: Is there any hope?

KD: I feel that this present civilization is just about over. I feel that there is a hope in some people, elements, I won't say remnants ... things that are still there, that they can manage to be together after a period of rest and growth. And choose to grow in the sunshine of hope and love. Yes then there is hope for another civilization on this earth. Of course there is always a chance that out in the universe there are some other earths that could come and smash this one into nothing. I see no reason why there shouldn't be another chance for man because he is a creature of God but I'm not counting on it. I'm counting on trying to help save and give hope to those whose eyes are open now and who are suffering.

MM: Is there anything that I can personally do for you? Or anything that I personally need to know ?

KD: I think that you are one of the people who has the fabric of knowledge and I think that you should develop it and continue on your mission of nurturing love and furthering love and that you must spend a little more time protecting yourself. You can't afford to be hyper-sensitive, put it that way. You have to find different ways to help you to be stronger everyday. And be stronger and wiser. You need strength and you need wisdom. And you've helped so much ... just the fact that you are there. And I know that you are there. And that I know you are an honest person working towards the same end, that's great.

MM: Thank you, you honor me.

KD: And don't be embarrassed by tears ...

Stand Up for Good and the Devil Will Never Win!

Stand Up for Good and the Devil Will Never Win!

Beloveds,

Today, Let Us Breathe Deeply and Exhale Slowly Ten Times.

As we reflect on the United States and World around us, it is evident that many people are choosing their fears, especially  those people in the White House. 

It would appear that the devil has infiltrated the minds and hearts of many in our nation. 

They Say they are Christians and yet during Holy Week, We the Citizens are being   bombarded with fake news and lies, as the so called leader of OUR NATION authorizes murderous acts in the name of fighting terror. 

We MUST Stand Up and Say Stop the Violence, the Killing and the Bombing without the Support  of the American People and Congressional Authorization.

Stand Up and Say Stop Lying to the American People and the World!

I Urge You to Rise Above fear and Choose Integrity, Hope, Kindness and Love.

Be a Nurturer of Good Purpose.  Embrace Good Dreams for Yourself and Humanity.

Yes, these are challenging, times and it appears that the devil of hate is winning.

Hate Will Never Win If We Will Stand Up For Equity, Equanimity, Equality for All People and Love.

Now is the time for us to take Consistent Nonviolent Loving Actions and Raise Our Voices.

Don't Give Up. Stand Up! 

If You Believe In Diplomacy, Stand Up!

If You Believe In Immigration Reform, Stand Up.

If You Believe In Justice and In Prison Reform, Stand Up.

If You Believe In Better Education and Safe Communities for Our Children, Stand Up.

If You Believe that Discrimination Against Others Is Wrong, Stand Up.

If You Believe In Supporting Those In Need, Creating Jobs, and Prosperity for All, Stand Up.

Again, Breathe Deeply and Exhale Slowly Ten Times.

We Are Artists, Actors, Activists, Teachers, Veterans, Diplomats, Bus Drivers, Doctors and Nurses, Police and Peacemakers, Immigrants, Construction Workers, Customer Service Reps, Secretaries, Sanitation Engineers, Homemakers, Geologists, Physicists, Scientists, Clergy, Landscapers, Corporate Leaders, Caretakers, Producers, Mayors, Governors, Congressional Representatives, Senators, Legislators, Judges, Business Owners, Government Workers, Students, Parents, Grandparents, Dentist, Lawyers, Technology and Finance Specialists.

We Are Good People Everywhere.

We, the Citizens Are the Storm of Love! 

We Will Not Give Up.  Stand Up.

Let Us Raise Our Voices.

Filibuster, Sit In, March Peacefully, Write, Perform, Sing and Work Together With Good Purpose for Good Dreams and Good Change!

And Because We Are the Love Storm,  the devil of hate Will Never Win!

Always, Melony

Beyond Ego and Misery! #Love

Beyond Ego and Misery! #Love

Beloveds, 

When Ego did not trust the Creator's Love, he found himself lost in perpetual storms of wrong words, violent  actions, disappointment and fear.  

It seemed like for eons,  Ego forbade the Heart from experiencing JOY and joined with Misery to create dis-order and hate throughout the World. 

Some humans enslaved others who looked differently.  They stole the precious resources and treasured legacies, and fought religious wars to maintain control.  

For a time it appeared that this was to become the Sad Destiny of Earth. 

And the Great Mother Cried.  Her tears moved hearts of a few who then felt the undercurrent of the Creator's Love.  

And the few Awakened from the horrible nightmare created by Ego and Misery.

They began to Breathe Deeply and see Beauty in the Stars, in the Moon and Sun. 

They began to marvel at the birds song, the lives of animals and fish, and the rhythm of the winds and oceans.  

They learned the history of Earth-Heart  through the rocks and stones.  

They discovered the oxygen of Love and studied the wisdom of trees.  

Plant life offered food and healing. 

With Each Breathe they took in Love,  they grew braver, and many more re-membered the Great Mother and Awakened in Love.  

YOU are one of the many born to Honor the Creator and Rise in understanding and compassion through the Great Mother. 

 Breathe Deeply 10 Times.  Breathe In Truth. Know there is Only Love.  Exhale the Nightmare Created by Ego and Misery.

Now that YOU Have Awakened,  allow Divine Grace to lead your Heart.  Listen to song of your Soul.  It is the Creator's Song of Love. 

Again, Ten Times Breathe In Love.  Exhale Love.  

There Is No Turning Back.  The only way to heal and live and prosper on Earth-Heart is to Stay Awake and Trust Only Love!

Always,  Melony

Peace is Possible through Compassion, Cooperation, Courage, Creativity, Deep Listening, Faith, Forgiveness, Kindness, Mercy, Respect, Understanding and--- The Grace of Love!

I Am a Frog!

I Am the Frog!
( from the book Seaker  Dreamer: Amazing, Brilliant, Compassionate YOU! )

I Am the Frog resting on the Lilypad. 
I Breathe Deeply 10 Times.

As I prepare for my new journey, I ask myself, "What Will I Do?" 

I still my mind, open my heart and wait for the Answer...

I Am the Frog resting on the Lilypad. 

I decide that each day I will organize the details of my life so that my mind, body and heart are in alignment. 

With Courage, Fortitude and Patience, I will work vigorously to exceed my own expectations. 

Because Balance is necessary,  I will do at least two things I enjoy everyday; and share joyously. 

I promise myself that when Divine Spirit speaks in My Heart or through Others, I will listen with compassion so that I may know, and act with gentle understanding.

I Am the Frog resting on the Lilypad.  

I Breathe Deeply Many Times As I Prepare for My New Journey. 

Though my exact destination is unknown, I Trust that as I am ready, All Will Be Revealed through Love!

Always, Melony

I Have the Courage to Be My Best Self!

Please  Do  Not Ignore the LIGHT.

With Gratitude, Breathe Deeply Six Times.  
Each Time Slowly Exhale.

Allow Each Breath to become like the Full Moon offering compassion; shining a bright Light of Authentic Love.

Please Re-Member to Breathe, Feel, Smell, Look, Touch, Taste and Listen to Love!

Please Re-Member to Breathe, Feel, Smell, Look, Touch, Taste and Listen to Love!

Beloveds,

Breathe, feel, smell, look, touch, taste and listen to Love.

Right here now-beyond the questioning or knowing; as you watch the sun set or the moon rise and kiss the stars; in the twilight or early morning dawn as the sun awakens you...

Let Us Give Thanks to Our Blessed Creator who Lives in Our Hearts and everywhere throughout the Multi-verse..

Breathe, feel, smell, look, touch, taste and listen to Love. 

Love is the Creator's Gift to all who believe, embrace the mystery and see beauty in the Soul Journey of every heart.

Love is the place where yesterday and tomorrow merge into Now. 

Love is letting go of notions of false superiority or self hate,. 

Love is walking in Peace and sharing compassion, offering hope and tender words to Yourself so that you let go of old fears and heal your Own Heart with Forgiveness.

Only when we believe that Love does not harm, is not selfish and does not envy will we experience the bliss of life.

Then we will feel Love in our hearts, taste it in our food, see it in the skies, the oceans, the blossoming flowers and trees as they bloom and awaken in the New Day.

The moment we are willing to live our destiny as beings of Love, and know that Love is the Creator's most Precious Gift...

Then  we will  be able to genuinely Love Our Neighbors and Offer Our Best so that together we Prosper with Joy.

In this moment, right now is the opportunity to breathe, feel, smell, look, touch, taste, and listen to Love.  

Breathe Deeply Ten Times.   In Love. Out Love. In Love. Out Love.   In Love.  Out Love.....

Today, How Will You Live and Honor the Creator in this Moment of Eternity?  

Please Re-Member to Breathe, Feel, Smell, Look, Touch, Taste and Listen to Love!

Always, Melony

This Culture of War!

This Culture of War!

Beloveds---

This Culture of War masked in hopes of freedom is Evil! 

This Culture of War Promotes the Death of Peaceful Dreams and makes Victims not Victors!

For no matter what side wins--- the broken hearts, the missing arms or legs, the sound of bombs, machine guns and mortar mixed with the screams of children, women, and men replay over and over in our brains years later, as Innocent Children Needing Nurturing offer us Love and Attention which in our woundedness we ignore!

When will Humanity learn that Violence, Killing and War Are Evil!

When will Humanity learn that Compromise, Cooperation, Forgiveness, Truth, Reconciliation and Love for Ourselves and Our Neighbors Is the Only Pathway of a Good Future?

I Breathe Deeply Ten Times. With Each Breath, I Exhale and let go of my Fear.

I still my heart and allow Hope to Breathe.

Together Let Us Pray for the Continuing Awakening of the Human Collective.

May We Continue to Open Our Hearts to the Good Possibility of a Shared Future filled with Compromise, Cooperation, Equity, Forgiveness, Truth, Reconciliation, Peace and Love!

We will be more likely to Prosper Collectively when we decide that Compassion has meaning and is useful in Today's World!

Always, Melony

Peace Is Possible through Compassion, Cooperation, Courage, Creativity, Faith, Forgiveness, Hope, Integrity, Kindness, Mercy, Patience, Respect, Understanding and the Gift of Love!

Though Duality Exists!

Though Duality Exists, Our Good Potential Will Prosper! 

In deep reflection, I must face no one but Myself, and YOU must face no one but Yourself.

All violent thoughts and actions, envy and greed or guns and wars to said to bring Peace are based in evil.

Duality Exists.  Evil exists but over time, though it may be eons; ultimately Our Good Potential Will Prosper.

No matter what goes on in the World, We have a responsibility to live with humility in the Truth inspired by Love.

Only then through the Creator's Blessing of Love are we able to see and feel the Earth, the Sky, the Oceans, the Dolphins and Trees, and Birds, and Flowers and All Sentients as purposeful and interconnected in Love.

Breathe and Exhale Deeply Four Times in many intervals.

Let us feel Hope in a World where much of Humanity is fearfully Awakening and struggling to restore itself through Love.

Breathe in Gratitude for the Awakening of Truth Discovered when we face ourselves by looking in the Mirror of all those around us. 

Now as we are seeing the need for compassion, forgiveness, kindness, mutual cooperation, mercy and Love,  let us look into the Heart of Eternity. 

We Are One In Love.

In the Circle of Our Eternal Existence, beyond current evil acts of envy, greed and mis-understanding, Love Exists Into Eternity.

Yes, Duality exists but ultimately Our Good Potential continues to prosper through our every Loving Action.

Today Commit to Walk with Courage, Fortitude and Patience. 

Say and Affirm to Yourself...

"I will do my best to live with Loving actions and thoughts of Peace and Prosperity for All.  In Deep Reflection and Prayer, I offer Gratitude, embrace Eternity and Re-member that Love is the most powerful energy of every Uni-Verse!  I Re-Member.  I Am a Being of Love!  You Are A Being of Love.  We Are One In Love."

Today We Re-Member.  It is through our  Collective Commitment to live Beyond Duality as Beings of Love, that  our Earth/Heart,  and seven generations of Children yet unborn will peacefully prosper with Joy and Love!

Always,  Melony

Peace is Possible through Compassion, Cooperation, Courage, Creativity, Forgiveness, Hope, Integrity, Kindness, Mercy, Respect, Understanding and--- The Grace of Love!

Loving Kindness Meditation

A LovingKindness Meditation

Take a moment and still your mind.  Breathe and Exhale Deeply Four Times.

With each breath,  imagine that you are opening your heart. Feel a rainbow of Grace and Love as it fills your heart and moves through your entire body.

Again, Breathe and Exhale Deeply Four Times.  What Does a Rainbow of Love and Grace Feel Like?  Sit with that feeling as you continue to breathe.

  May we heal by offering forgiveness and mercy to ourselves and all others.

May we honor all sentient beings.

May we seek understanding and honor all cultures as we learn to Love each other as a diverse human collective.

May we unlease our true potential  of goodness, and allow our every act to reflect compassion, kindness,  and hope.

May our hearts stay open with ease and Grace as we decide that good, sustainable change is possible only through Love.

May we do harm to none, use technology to assist and see All safe and happy in a World without envy, greed, hate or violence.

May we share our resources  with Love so that each child and every family to have  clean water, healthy food, education, and good opportunity to prosper and grow in flourishing communities on Earth/Heart.

Again, Breathe and Exhale Deeply Four Times. In Love. Out Love. In Love. Out Love. In Love. Out Love. In Love. Out Love.

May we walk  always with Grace, Loving thoughts and actions and re-member that Peace Is Possible Only through Compassion, Forgiveness, Integrity, Kindness, Mercy and Love.

Always, Melony

True Friends Are Personal Angels!


True Friends Are Personal Angels!

True Friends Are Personal Angels. Yes. Personal Angels!

They show up when needed,
give space with care,
nurture us through disappointment, or tough times,
become lights in the dark,
and encourage us to live our greatness.

A true friend shares your life passages of success and failure, and often lifts you up to begin again with Courage, Integrity and Love.

A friend shares our laughter and tears; sadness and joy, and reminds us to cherish the good of our lives.

Through Abiding Love, Friends are members of Our Divine Family.

Breathe Deeply and Exhale Slowly Six Times.

In Love. Out Love. In Love.  Out Love.
In Love. Out Love. In Love.  Out Love.
In Love. Out Love. In Love.  Out Love.

Today Let's Celebrate Our Personal Angels and the Gift of True Friendship!

Always, Melony

I Am ONE. We Are ONE!

I am ONE. We Are ONE!

Beloveds,

I Breathe and Exhale Deeply Ten Times. Today Joy moves through me as I learn Compassion and Humility.   As Jesus Would Say....I am ONE. We Are ONE!

I am ONE  with all sentient beings…the sky, the clouds, the sun, the rain, the trees that sway and dance in the wind, and the birds that greet me in song.

I am One  with the Spirit of Sophia, Mother Theresa, Mohandis, Malcolm, Martin, John, and Edward, as well as  Ruth, Isaac, Joshua, Moses, Mary, Jesus, Khadeeja, Mohammed, Shams, Rumi, Buddha, Kuan Yin and  Sojourner Truth.

I am ONE with the woman suffering from breast cancer and  the man suffering and dying from lung cancer and the woman in Afghanistan whose  family was killed by a drone.

I am ONE with the with the lost souls of ISIS, Boko Haram and hostages and victims everywhere, as well as the homeless woman pushing  the cart with all her worldly possessions and warning us of our greed though we  don’t often listen.

I am One with the Tibetan who was told by Chairman Mao that religion is poison and every Tibetan across the Earth unable to return to their homeland.

I am One with the starving children everywhere, as well as  the  Israeli or Palestinian with a gun in his or her hand.

I am One with all those Ascended, every child born at  this moment, and the great-grandparents who are taking their last breath on this Earth Realm.

I am ONE with the artist struggling to show us the  way and the politician disgraced in shame.

I am ONE with those who  have Awakened in Love and those filled with disappointment or fear.

Circumstances make no difference to me for I embrace the  journey and see the Divine in those who may not see the Divine in  themselves.

I am One with All World Leaders who need more Courage to say  stop the killing everywhere and the Dalai Lama whom asks us to live in Peace.

In my dreams the Buffalo Woman, the Morning Dove and the  Golden Hawk guide me as my heart becomes filled with Ancient Prayers of  All Traditions.

I am One with the caterpillar and the butterfly. 

As Jesus Would Say....I am ONE. We Are ONE!

I am  One with the Buddhist, the Christian, the Jew, the Moslem, the Bahai, the  Hindu, the Yoruba, the Janist, the Naturalist, the One who doesn’t believe in G-d, and the One Lost in their material identity and always needing  more….

Today Joy moves through me as Compassion, Humility and  Understanding Become a Way of Life...

For In You--- I see the Reflection of  Me and know that through Love... WE ARE ONE.

Peace is Possible through Compassion, Forgiveness, Integrity, Mercy, Respect, Understanding and,-- The Grace of Love!

Always, Melony

Each Breath As A Prayer!

Each Breath As A Prayer!  #Compassion #Healing #Love

Today with Gratitude, may we open our hearts to neighbors everywhere. 

May we offer our resources and good wishes to the Ones in front of us.  

May we look across the World and help where we can, even if it is Only Our Prayers. 

In fact Prayers of Compassion, Healing and Love are the most important gift we can offer because it shifts thought patterns, opens the heart to Faith.  

Prayer can inspire us to work together as the invisible doors of our hearts open to Grace. 

Breathe Deeply Ten Times.  Breathe In Love.  Breathe Out Love.

As we allow each Breath of Unselfish Love to become a Prayer, we become aware that Our Blessed Creator Lives through Us.  Therein lies the Miracle!  

Blessed Be YOU and Your Beautiful Heart!
