Love Has Many Roads!

Love Has Many Roads!

Beautiful People, 

We may walk, ride a bike or take the bus. Some drive a car, row a boat or sail on the ocean. Others may travel by train and plane. 

No matter our culture, race or religion; no matter what country you live in--some things about this World are truly the same. 

There will be rains of kindness, storms of difficulty and lessons of Awakening to the Love. 

Through Love, we can learn to let go of our anger, fear or need for violence. 

Through Love, we can learn to blossom with Integrity, live in Truth and desire to create Good Opportunity for All.

Through Love it is possible to embrace our power to heal, forgive, share and walk as Beings infused with the Creator's Grace! 

Breathe and Exhale Deeply Ten Times.  Allow each breath to be filled with Love.  

Today Re-member,  Love Has Many Roads and Desires only to be Awakened in Every Heart so that All may live and know the Sunshine of Hope!

Always,  Melony

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

The Last Stand of Tyrants

The Last Stand of Tyrants

Beautiful People,
For All That We Are, Have, Hope to Be or Hope to Achieve...

Let Us Give Thanks to Our Blessed Creator of Every Uni-Verse.  For it Is through Our Blessed Creator that we are given Good Potential and Love for All!

Breathe Deeply Ten Times. 

In Love.  Out Good Potential with actions of Unselfish Love.  

In Love.  Out Good Potential with actions of Unselfish Love.  

In Love.  Out Good Potential with actions of Unselfish Love....

May we live this day, and every day growing in awareness; and walk as beings of compassionate appreciation and understanding.  

May we Honor our Elders with unconditional Love; for they have shown us the way, and held the space for our Awakening. They are our important  Teachers.

Let us also thank each remarkable being that shares strength, courage, and joy or teaches us lessons that help us grow in Love. There are many heroines and heroes  among us!

Even as these times on Earth reveal a schism of selfishness,  there is a mass Awakening of sentient beings wanting to express their true Loving Selves.  Miracles lay strewn in every path we walk; bringing us new gifts.

Unfortunately this is also a time of intense agony for those suffering in the  mire of fear and dis-connected from Divine Spirit. Tyrants around the world will  continue to try to assert their ungodly will as they take their last stand.

Still everywhere we can feel the ecstasy of Earth Angels Awakening and soaring with the Spirit of Compassion and Love.

Though many are  experiencing the most dire of circumstances, our Children will continue to act  as Beacons of Light. Nurture and pay attention to the children. They bring us  hope and Loving Wonder. Through the innocence of our children, we are often  inspired with new Faith.

Every day, small seeds of wisdom are given to us through our willingness to accept Divine Grace. We have new opportunity every day to grow in  awareness, respect, and Love for eachother.

Again, Breathe Deeply.  In Love.  Out Good Potential with actions of Unselfish Love.

Today please re-member that  Love is a verb---an action word. It can also be an adjective or a noun.

As each one of us becomes Love, we also become a heroine or hero.  Together as we blossom, we will flourish and multiply in goodness.

And  through Goodness, Heaven On Earth will be restored. This is the word of  LOVE!

Always, Melony

A Vision of Humanity Awakening with Integrity!

A Vision of Humanity Awakening with Integrity!

Beloveds,

Today I Pray.  I Sit In Silence Asking for Guidance and Direction. 

The question some of us may be asking in this time of Painful Transformation is...

"Will Hope Be Enough for All to Re-Connect to Our Divine Source of Love?".

The Truth Is that All Actions of Love Make this World Better!

I close my eyes, trust and allow time to pass. 

I Breathe and Exhale Many Times. 

In Hope.  Out Love. 

I follow the Light through the darkness.  Each step I take into my heart fills me with Grace and gives me Hope. 

I Vision Good Change on Earth. 

Good Change is not always comfortable or easy.

Sometimes Change brings confusion and chaos. 

I Breathe.  The World Is Changing.  I Am Changing.

I hold on to Faith and ask for more Courage. 

I keep moving towards the Light. 

I Breathe.  In Hope.  Out Love. 

I Thank Our Blessed Creator.  I Honor Our Ancestors and All Who Have Ascended.

As I step into Good Change, I imagine that I become the Light. 

All around me are other Lights.  We are those Spirits Awakening with Respect and Integrity.

Together We Are Breathing. 

In Hope. Out Love.

My Vision Continues....

Collectively we honor our Elders and our Children.

We Vision a World of Loving Peace where there is equity,  good education and housing; as well as a blossoming sustenance and Good Possibility for All. 

We Share Lovingly.  We Forgive.

We smile and decide to work together to help heal our broken hearts and our Earth/Heart.

Somewhere buttercups, tulips and magnolia trees are beginning to blossom.

Robins and hummingbirds sing. 

The powerful voice of blue jays is heard even by dolphins and whales. 

The oceans roar and the wind calls on us to Love. 

And Love vibrates and spins new melodies.

Yes.  Change Is Here! 

Hope, Love and New Possibility fill the air. 

It is time to continue our individual and Collective Journeys with  Courage, Integrity, Good Purpose and Respect for Eachother. 

May Humanity Awaken with Integrity and Allow Love to Lead so that Our Children Thrive and Grow and Prosper with Good Dreams Everywhere throughout the World.

With Joy, Humility, Gratitude and Love...

Let Us All Breathe Deeply!

Always, Melony

Our Good Potential Will Prosper!

Though Duality Exists, Our Good Potential Will Prosper!

Beloveds,

In deep reflection, I must face no one but Myself.  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, I have a responsibility to live with humility in the Truth inspired by Love.

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

As I Breathe and Exhale Deeply Four Times in many intervals, I feel Hope in a World where much of Humanity is fearfully Awakening and struggling to restore itself through Love.

I Breathe in Gratitude for the Awakening of Truth Discovered when I face Myself by looking in the Mirror of all those around me. 

Seeing the need for compassion, forgiveness, integrity, kindness, mutual cooperation mercy and Love, I 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, violence and war...

Love Exists Into Eternity.

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

I commit to  walk with courage, fortitude, hope and patience.  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!! 

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!

I Breathe Deeply and Re-Member... 

I Am a Being of Love!  You Are A Being of Love!  We Are One In Love!

Always,  Melony

Allow Every Day to Become the Best Yet!

Allow Every Day to Become the Best Yet!  #Gratitude

Beautiful People,

Today Breathe Deeply Six Times. In Gratitude. Out Love!  In Gratitude. Out Love! In Gratitude. Out Love! In Gratitude. Out Love! In Gratitude. Out Love! In Gratitude. Out Love! 

Now---Be Grateful for Your Past---the good times; the hard times and the times you asked "Why ME?".  There will be days when you must say goodbye, so that you can make room to Start Again.

When we live through a crisis or difficulty, a wise one learns to ask "Why Not Me?".  Then with humility and hope, you will feel your heart jump for joy! 

Again, Breathe Deeply and Re-Member----Every New Day Brings a New Challenge so that You Can Grow and Shine Your Light.

Today Give Thanks.  Walk With Your Good Friends, Compassion, Courage, Gratitude, Faith, Forgiveness, Integrity, Intuition, Mercy, Patience, Purpose, Respect and Understanding. 

Joyfully Share Your Gratitude and Love.   

Allow Every New Day to Become---The Best Yet! 

Always,  Melony

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

Care Enough to Be Truthful!

Care Enough to Be Truthful!  

Beautiful People,

Greed, Envy, Fear and Selfishness has caused so many of us to hide the Truth and lie to protect our material selves.

But lies have no strength or foundation in Love.

Every lie becomes first a distraction and then, a weapon of despair used to subjugate and promote acts of violence and wars.  

Though the Truth may be painful, through Courage, it provides us an opportunity to ask for and,  offer Forgiveness so that we can be like Lights in a Tunnel of Darkness where so many of us have Lost their way.  

I Breathe Deeply Ten Times. With each Breath, I Inhale Love.

As I Exhale, I let go of every lie I have been told to make me believe that one group of people is superior over another.  

I sit quietly in the newness of Truth.

I understand that by believing in Fairness and Equity, and Offering Compassion and Love...

Ancient Wounds Can Be Healed. 

And so, it is for Our Blessed Creator, the Children of the many generations to come, and for every Ancestor who desired Peace that I am willing to Share.

In this way I am given the Courage, Fortitude and Strength to Offer My Hand and My Heart in Friendship.  

I will say even to the one that I thought I disliked, despised or feared....

"Let us care enough to be Truthful and learn to walk together as Equals, sharing our cultural and material gifts; and Step into our Destiny of Hope with Loving Hearts!"

Always, Melony

I Am Like the Bamboo!

I sit in gratitude and marvel at the details of Creation.  What makes a Bamboo shoot grow in water and in soil?  How is it that its roots are flexible while the shoot is firm and learns to bend and wind?

As Oprah Says. .."Love. Lifts. Me."

As Oprah Says..."Love. Lifts. Me."

Beloveds,

With humility, I take a moment to still myself. 

I Breathe Deeply and Exhale Slowly Ten Times.

In every place in my heart where I have felt disappointment, been wounded or wounded another, I offer and ask for forgiveness. 

Forgiveness allows me the gift of healing. Healing grants renewal and helps me to begin again, in the Newness of Love.

I feel the Love of every Uni-Verse embrace me, and offer the Grace of Renewal.

I continue to Breathe.  Slowly I Exhale with each breath, and let go of every thought that is not Love.

I Breathe and offer Gratitude for Life.

I open my heart and feel the lessons of the butterfly, the dove, the dolphin, the phoenix, the flower, the tree, the oceans, the moon, the planets, the stars, ancient beings; and all sentient life woven in the fabric of my DNA of every lifetime.

It is like I am walking on water across many Galaxies into the clouds of Heaven. 

I am reminded that Wisdom of Love offers many lessons of Patience and Fluidity. 

Love is meant to flow and has no ending.

Love will always smooth the boulders of the inequity caused by ego, greed, and fear.

Unselfish Actions of Love can resolve conflict and un-necessary wars fought by our Collective.

Love's Beginnings are beyond time and serve as an infinite Ocean of Grace that teaches Compassion, Hope, Integrity and Good Purpose.

The Peace and Prosperity that I Desire for Myself, I Desire For All Others.

I Breathe and Exhale Deeply.

Only through Love are we offered  the Gift of Re-Birth and Renewal.

Every Good Dream Is Possible to Manifest through Consistent Effort, Deep Listening, Patience and the Grace of Love.

I Humbly Say Thank You to the Infinite Creator of ALL.

Once Again, I Breathe Deeply and Exhale Slowly.

As Oprah Says... "Love. Lifts. Me."

My Heart is filled with Profound Gratitude!

Love Gives Me Hope!  Love Inspires Me!  Love Heals Me!   Love Leads Me!

What Does Love Do For YOU?

Always, Melony

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

My Every Breath Is A Prayer. Thank YOU!

My Every Breath Is A Prayer.  Thank YOU!

Thank You Blessed Mother Father Creator  of Light, Love, Goodness, Creativity and Hope. 

I Honor You In All That Is and All That Is Not and All That Will Ever Be.

My Each Breath Is A Prayer of Humility and Gratitude for the Grace Manifesting.

I Am Hopeful For the Voices of Truth. 

We As Humans Have Become Emmersed In a Cycle of Violence.

We Are Destroying Our World.  And I  Am Saddened By Our Inability to Change.

Bombs Anahilate Whole Cities.  Our Water and Food Are Contaminated with Toxins.

And Yet We Still Walk In A Fog of Ego and Greed.

My Each Breath Is a Prayer of Awakening.  Be-Coming Aware, I Thank Angels, Ancestors and All Those Who Have Ascended In Grace.

Though My Heart Is Broken In a Million Pieces, I Am Working to Live Only With Forgiveness and Compassion.

I Sit In the Stillness and See Our Good Potential.

Help Me and All of Humanity To Live With Compassion, Love and Peace. Allow Me to Sing Your Melodies of Hope in These Times of Despair.

I Believe In Goodness. I  Am Inspired By Love.

Allow Me to Join with the Billions of Like Minded Spirits So That Balance, Creativity, Healing, Hope and Love Prosper with Integrity and Grace!

Mom, I feel so privileged to have you as a Mother and to have journeyed with you in this lifetime. Looking back on this time on Earth, my life has been one of learning, adventure and more Joy than I thought imaginable.  

From the Dr. Seuss days of Green Eggs and Ham and the rhyming poetry of Paul Laurence Dunbar to my rebellious teenage years where I sought solace in everything "Black" from  Ebony and Jet Magazine, the poetry of Langston Hughes and Sojourner Truth, the writing and filmmaking of Gordon Parks and the music of Roberta Flack,  James Brown, Grace Jones, Ashford and Simpson--- to my rocky  mistakes and disillusionment of young adulthood---You Exposed Me to the Best Life Had to Offer!  

Sometimes I was fearful.   You pushed and pushed and told me that I had a right to walk any path I choose in the World.   So often I felt that I was not good enough and unworthy of these great gifts.  People whispered behind your back and made fun of me when I articulated with my extensive vocabulary.   They said I was born with a silver spoon in my mouth.  

Looking back, it was funny how some of the relatives and community associates or so called friends looked for ways to undermine your authority and convince me to go right when I should have gone left.  

What I thought I wanted was to be "normal".  I didn't understand that being different and unique was a Great Gift.  Though I tried to run away from all you had taught me, it was so imprinted in my mind and my heart and my Soul that the further I ran, the closer I came to it.     

I Thank You for a first class education, for the square dancing and swimming at the YWCA, dance and drama at the Pittsburgh Playhouse, camp in Maine at Blueberry Cove and studying musical instruments like the violin and recorder.  I never did master either but at least I love music!  

I've become a person who loves people of different cultures.  Travel is like eating chocolate and I honor all Faith traditions and continue to explore the Divine Essence of MotherFatherG-D through Love. 

I look at myself now and know that I am a product of Your Magnificent Efforts!    Thank You for All You have done for me.  Your Goodness inspires me.  Your toughness helped me learn how to survive in a World that would say "Who do you think You Are??", Instead of "How Can I Help??".  

I Could Go On Forever ….Thank You. Thank You. Thank YOU!  

I Love YOU Into Eternity MOM Betty J. Tilman!

I Honor YOU and All MOTHERS! 

Love, Melony

The Woman Of Courage! #Mother

The Woman Of Courage!  #Mother

Beautiful People, 

I was nurtured in the womb with compassion and birthed by a Woman of Courage in times of Great Change. 

As a child I made mudpies filled with hope; picked blueberries with joy, learn to swim in the ocean and tried to climb trees of wisdom that offered acorns or apples. When I fell, the Woman of Courage hugged me and nurtured my cuts and bruises.

I was a wild child dancing through fields of grass and flowers, chasing butterflies in the morning and fireflies at night. 

I learned to read and traveled the World when I was a child through books. In darkness, I imagined what life would be like if I could ride on the moon and share my toys with other children in the sparkling stars. 

The Woman of Courage laughed and taught me to write stories and use my imagination. She told me I was special gift and would help make the World better.  She taught me to Pray and say Thank You for my good life. 

As I grew, the World kept Changing. The Woman of Courage taught me to use my voice and speak out for Justice and to Serve All with Love.  She taught me to respect others and shared Her Dreams for Peace in the World.   We marched and sang and prayed that all children could be free to grow in Love. 

I Am Thankful for HER, My Mother, Ms.  Betty J. Tilman of Pittsburgh, PA.  She Is the Woman of Courage that Taught Me to Dream!

Happy Mother's Day Weekend of Grace, Hope, Integrity and Love to All! 

Always, Melony

I Have the Courage to Be Myself!

I Have the Courage to Be Myself!

Each and Every Day through the Gift
of Unselfish Love,
OurBlessedMotherFather
MasterCreator
Nurtures Our Heart/Earth.

In the light of Moon, we are offered
the opportunity of Spiritual health,
honorable relationships, integrity,  and expanded Peace
to grow and prosper.

Some will close the blinds, shutters, doors and their hearts on the Moon's brilliance.

I will not ignore the LIGHT.

In Chaos Breathe!

In Chaos Breathe!

Stay Grounded in the Goodness of Your Heart.  

Peace is Within YOU.  Be Patient.

Earth School!

This is Earth School.  

No matter the challenges and struggles, we must find Peace within our hearts and walk with Loving tenderness. 

This is Earth School. 

Some come to learn, others to teach. 
Some are warriors. 
Others are Peacemakers. 

Some walk with great Faith 
and become personifications 
of Loving Hope. 

Others are learning about the 
material world and mistakenly 
embrace greed and power. 

They have forgotten Love. 

No matter who we are, our time here 
is finite but our Spiritual existence 
is Infinite and Eternal. 

While we are here we must honor 
and celebrate eachother, Love eachother and cherish eachother as beings connected in Love. 

Today honor family, friends and strangers. 

Share compassion. Forgive with humilty. 

Make Peace with All. 

Our time to be here may be short 
but in leaving we are never alone. 

Those who return before us to Heaven, our angel ancestors await us--- just as they live always in our hearts and soar through the universe unlimited or restricted by physical bodies assisting us. 

Divine Spirit lives through them and through us. 

There is nothing but Love. 

Love is Grace in Action.  

This is Earth School.  

Please Re-Member Love...
Breathe In Love.  Exhale Love.
Ten Times Breathe! 

Be Love...and Live Only 
with Love  in your Hearts Today!

Always, Melony

A Seeker Dreamer Vision for Good!

A Seeker Dreamer Vision for Good!

Doing Good is not always easy for Society has taught us that there is no great reward in Unselfish Love.  Therefore, our minds are often occupied by an ego of fear which rewards selfish actions.

When a Seeker Dreamer is given a Vision to use their gifts to do good, it always requires relentless determination, focus, organization and a commitment to Unselfish Love.

Breathe and Exhale Deeply Ten Times.

Today, decide to follow the path of Compassion and Kindness.  Try to allow Integrity to live in your words, thoughts and actions.

Seeker Dreamer, commit to manifest your Vision and use your Gifts to Do Good.

In this way,  True Success, JOY and Unselfish Love Will Blossom Within YOU!

Your Turtle Wisdom!

Your Turtle Wisdom!

Remember Your Turtle Wisdom...

Even in the most difficult of times;  like the Turtle, when we become patient with Ourselves  and the World, we Breathe in the Oxygen of the Earth gratefully and develop clarity.

It is then  with clarity that we are able to travel slowly across unknown waters  or lands to safely to Victory.

We grow stronger with age;  and as we come to know the essence of Our Be-ing,  we offer compassion and mercy as a way  of celebrating and nurturing Love.

Today, open your heart to the Creator's Infinite Grace.

Slowly Breathe  and Exhale Deeply Four Times.

Breathe In Patience and Out Faith.  Breathe In Patience and Out Faith.
Breathe In Patience and Out Faith.  Breathe In Patience and Out Faith.

There is no need to rush to beat the deceptive, selfish, greedy ones trying to manipulate your Ego.

Decide to honor and use the Gift of Your Turtle Wisdom.  Every challenge requires Patience, Faith,  Love and a Strong Belief in a Good Outcome!

Do All That You Can Humbly, Honoring the Gift of Divine Purpose and the Grace of Love!

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

A May Love Note!

A May Love Note!

Beautiful People,

Can you imagine, it’s  already May?  Take a moment to let our  Mother Earth/Heart feel our Loving resolve to accept, respect, and nurture each other.

Breathe and Exhale Deeply Ten Times. 

Let Love be felt throughout every organ of the body, and let us open our total beings so that we become Love’s essence.

Now, let us honor the beauty of our entire sentient family including the birds, the dolphins, the  horses, the lions, the elephants and all sentients across the planet.

Let us rejoice as the clouds  burst with rain, and we feel the impact of  monumental oceans, rivers and mountains.

Let us Mourn and Honor All Those Precious Beings Who Have Been Lost  Due to Earth's Imbalance Through Earthquakes, Hurricanes, Human Violence or Illness.   We Hold All These Precious Beings Forever In Our Hearts and Know They Have Ascended Into the Heart of Love.

Right now feel Mother Earth’s  rejuvenation through flowers, fruits, vegetables, plants, trees, the sparkling sun, the glistening moon, twinkling stars, and the magical sky.

Right now let us forgive ourselves, and each other as we learn to release any vestiges of pain, and fear we have of each other.

Let us each take time to embrace goodness, then let us share it with each other. Let us diligently work to create  better  economic, educational, social, political and justice systems  so that Every Child can dream, achieve and live their Good Destiny.

Let us commit to work to cure dis-ease, create equity in every community and promote harmony.

Today we walk with Truth and Reconciliation. We honor our elders, and embrace our children. We acknowledge ALL as beings of Love, and strive for the best outcome in every situation.

We understand that we must always  move to honor the potential and joy of a Loving Peace on our planet.

Right now, as we Breathe Deeply and Exhale Slowly---Let us together imagine a World where all people, all religions, and cultural traditions embrace a Universal Consciousness of  Compassion, Kindness and Love.

We acknowledge that We Are One Heart, and through that One Heart each of us is able to develop a new awareness of Mother:

Maybe
Only
The
Heart=Earth
Explains
Reason for Love…

Always, Melony
