The Deeper Meanings of Life / 10 Love-Filled Ways to Live From Your Heart / Important Dates

Our brief moment in space
  can come to be
such a lonely place.

When
in the melodious refrain

of our lives,
as we kiss each day
goodbye,
we may never fully realize
just how much
we simply cannot
see.

For God Is Glorified
by you and me
becoming alive
in a Heart
that belongs to someone
other than
Thee.

There is a Sacredness to all Life.

Deep down inside,
we may never know why
the deeper meanings
of Life
pass us by.

My Dear Friends,
if we stumble and fall,

after giving Life
it all,
to fail is a right,
we defend.
And if in falling,
we lift
but one precious Soul
above the place
where eyes meet eyes,
then
Life was worth
the living,
and Love
worth giving.

Imperfection
is part
of the very Fabric
of Life.
And the celebration
of Life
is in the
healing.

The sound of Music,
the Song of our Lives,
joins in celebration,
and was long ago
found to be
one of the World’s first medicines
used to cure illness,
attending the Spirit
as it was
reborn.

How much we simply cannot see.

To catch someone
whenever they fall,
pours Sacred Water
on the Soil of Being,
with every teardrop
that falls.

For
the end

of the World,
  can be the beginning
of it all.

“There is no end.
There is no beginning.
There is only
the Infinite passion
of Life.”
Federico Fellini

 There is a
Sacredness to all
Life.

The deeper meanings of Life pass us by.

It is so amazing
how the Words of the Lord
can speak right to the Heart,
how they can
Light up the dark.

God’s Words are proven
to be true and full of Wisdom.

“Every Word of God is pure:
He is a shield unto them
that put their trust in Him.”
Prov. 30:5

In Love
and Eternally mine,
the Love of God

finds that we live
in each other’s Heart,
we are One,
we are the same.

Our Heavenly Father
and His Child
that you are,

dwell in ONE World.
He
holds us within
His Sacred Heart,
as He lives
in yours
and mine.

Love is what you are.

In
the ebb and flow

of emotions
tides,
we may seemingly become
oceans away.

But ever you can feel
  the Love of today,
and ever hear
what it has to say.
For no true Love
  was ever a lie,
and neither
did it die.

Get Love
into your world
and let it hold you
within.
For God is
Love,
and Love is
what you are.

Goodnight.

“I name it silence.
Some people say self, or love, or fullness.
It is actually life itself.”
Gangaji

10 Love-Filled Ways to Live From Your Heart
read more

Living from the heart is incredibly relaxing. You stop using your mind to analyze, plan, organize, and figure everything out. What a relief! As you let go of all of that mind activity, you are able to relax into presence, where there is no trouble and no resistance.

When you live from the Heart, you begin to touch into the universal experience of love. Love is the source of everything – the fabric which makes up our very existence.

Sure, there are many waves in the ocean, but they all are made up of the same thing. Play with letting go of your individual self and live from the eternal ocean of love.

  1. Ask, “What would love do?” In any situation, look for the response that is peaceful and free of stress. Put aside your fears and conditioned habits, and let love guide you.
    .
  2. Let love pervade every conversation. Can you not take your relationships for granted and be more openly loving? Even when things get tense, drop away from your emotional reaction and melt back into love.
    .
  3. Treat yourself like gold. When it comes to love, you are included, too. Tune into what you need and let yourself have it. Live as stress-free a life as possible.
    .
  4. Be here now. Spinning stories in your mind about things that have happened in the past and what might happen in the future take you away from what is here right now. When you are stuck in your mind, it is impossible to be fully in touch with the love that is here. Let your attention explore this very moment. Open your senses, open your heart, and live from there.
    .
  5. Become aware of the oneness of love. Consider this: what if looking out of your eyes is the same as what is looking out of everyone else’s eyes. When you meet an “other,” you are actually meeting the essence of yourself. When you understand this, love is impossible to deny. Check it out with the next person you speak to.
    .
  6. Don’t obsessively plan. In fact, only plan when absolutely necessary. Planning is in the mind, and when you realize how little planning you actually need, there is space to recognize that you are alive right now. And in that aliveness, let your Heart glow.
    .
  7. Make hard choices. When you live from the heart, you begin to be very honest with yourself. You may realize that certain situations or people aren’t working for you. Likewise, you will see your own tendencies that don’t serve. Sometimes, the most loving response you can make is a kind but firm, “No.”
    .
  8. Honor your personality quirks. A funny thing happens when you live from the Heart. As conditioning falls away, your natural gifts and inclinations have space to be expressed. Let your creativity flow in whatever way it wants to. Go where you are guided, learn what you want to learn, enjoy yourself in all your activities.
    .
  9. Bring boundless acceptance to your moment-to-moment experience. Be a kind host to all the emotions and reactions that visit you. The more you resist, the more trouble you will have. Say, “Hello” and let it be.
    .
  10. Get to know the unconditioned, totally free you. When you relax away from all your conditioned habits, you will discover formless space that is clear, open, and inherently loving. Begin to become familiar with this space, as it is the essence of you. Listen, let it guide you. Live here.
    .

In any moment you have a choice – the head or the Heart, inauthenticity or truth, distraction or love. Play around with living more in your Heart. Don’t be shy. Let love in, and life’s greatest treasures will be revealed.

The Beautiful Tapestry of Life / What Children Need Most / Classes Resume on January 5

Dedicated
with all the Love
in my Heart
to our daughter
Annie,
born on a very special and Sacred
December 29.
On that precious day
we truly felt
the Love of God.

“The love of God
is greater far

than tongue or pen
can ever tell.”
– Frederick Lehman

“Blessed is he,
who in the name of charity and good will,
Shepherds the weak
through the valley of darkness,
for he is truly his Brother’s keeper
and the finder of lost Children.”
– Ezekiel 25:17

Love is the most Beautiful thing on Earth.

An Existential dimension
is woven into the Beautiful Tapestry of Life.

Existentialism is a realm of Philosophy
concerned with
the meaning of Human existence.
It looks closely at Love,
and the meaning of Life,
and at death.
It looks at how we deal with
and value
the meaning of our own
very brief existence.

baby-asleep-c

           I exist for you.

 As parents of a precious child,
this existential dimension leads us
to questions
later in Life:

Who was I?
What was my purpose in Life?
Where was my existence directed?
What did I achieve in Life?
What was the meaning of my Life
to others?

But, in reflection,
as the parent
of a new born child,
your Heart simply said:

I am here.
I exist.
And I exist for you.
I will let nothing harm you.
My words will always welcome
and warm you.
Let me be everything you are.
Let me dry your tears
and always be beside you,
to guard you and guide you,
and Love you
until the end
of time.

lady-and-light

          It is your Light.

Such is the Love
of a Mother and a Father
for their precious
Child.

Such is the Love
of your Father in Heaven above
for you.

“Verily, verily, I say unto thee –
ye must be born again”
– John 3:5,7

My Dear Friends,
everyday
your child is born
again.
And the answers
to Life’s existential questions
may be found
in the very first moment
you held your newborn
child:

I am here.
I exist.
And I exist for you.

tree-in-cloud-ring-b

Let me guard you and guide you.

You can venture into
sophisticated aspects
of Love.

But this Love,
this Existential Love,
cannot be conveyed
in mere words.

It is
your shelter from the storm,
your light,
your freedom
from ever knowing
the night.

This Love will follow you
wherever you go,
because it never left you.
It will guide you
when you never have to
think about it.

My Friends,
the manner we choose

to Live and Love
becomes Life,
a truly beautiful
Existential existence.
It blossoms
as the Truth
and is the same Love
God feels for His Child,
YOU.

Or Love and Life
can become
a Lie.

many-colored-sunrise

It has been searching for you.

Love
is the simplest thing on Earth,
the most powerful,
and the most beautiful.

To find it
all we need do
is surrender
our Heart.
And to whom
do we surrender
our fragile Hearts?

To everyone.

Love existential,
My Dear Friends,
will find you.
It has been searching for you.
Look around.
You will see it
in the eyes of everyone,
and every Living thing
you meet.
You felt such Love
on the day
of your Child’s birth,
and on the day
your were born.

Everyone
has a Heart,
a Human Heart,
that longs to Love
someone.

Like you.

Goodnight.

    This Love will follow you.

    A truly beautiful Existential existence.

“Love is the only way to grasp another human being
in the innermost core of his personality.
No one can become fully aware
of the very essence of another human being
unless he loves him.

For the first time in my life
victorI saw the truth
as it is set into song by so many poets,
proclaimed as the final wisdom by so many thinkers.
The truth –
that Love is the ultimate and highest goal
to which man can aspire.
Then I grasped the meaning
of the greatest secret that human poetry
and human thought and belief have to impart:
The salvation of man
is through love
and in love.”

Viktor E. Frankl, Man’s Search for Meaning
