Never Miss An Opportunity To Give Or Receive Love

Affirmation for Tuesday December 22nd

I do not miss an opportunity to express love, to receive love and to speak of love. I make sure that fear does not hold me back from declaring my love for others. I grasp every opportunity that presents itself to be the love I wish to see in the world.

ONE of the saddest things is that hellish fear takes its gruesome place beside its opposite divine sweet love... to propel us into being afraid of loving.

And yet this is the malaise that takes hold of so many of us as individuals, as groups of people and as nations.

It is the scourge of our times and the blight of our lives.

It is the cause of separation, of barriers being put up, of differences being highlighted and people not in love with one another.

Can we count the number of times we been afraid to love, afraid to express love, afraid to receive love and, of course, to give our love?

Was it because of a fear of being hurt?

Was it because we were afraid of being misunderstood?

Was it because we were afraid of hurting another by declaring our heart's intention?

Was it just not the done thing to speak of love? Would we be ridiculed?

Did it make us appear sentimental, soppy, weird, mad even?

How wicked is the fear monster that lurks in the shadows of those who wish to profess their love?

Yet we can make a resolution, a pact even.. that we will not allow fear to take us out of love. Never ever.

We can make a commitment to three words.... the three most powerful words in our language and in all languages... the simple phrase that heals not only ourselves but also others and the whole world.



How many times have we said those words?

How many times would we like to say those powerful and so heartfelt words?

How often do we regret not saying them?

And how often do we feel so pleased and so opened up because we have told others just how much we love them?

Every time we utter those words... every time we write those words... every time you and I think those words... and every time you and I send those words out in our thoughts we not only heal with loving energy those in our sights but we also undertake profound healing on ourselves.

If we are saying these to a member of the opposite sex there is nothing wrong with clarifying that we do not seek a romantic relationship or a sexual relationship when we declare our love for someone.

We are just being in love with that person... with the only agenda being love.

Few of us leave this planet at the end of our life regretting that we loved too much.

On the contrary most of us regret having not loved enough... having not told enough people just how much we loved them...not saying what our heart wanted us to say.

Few of us walk into the doctor's office complaining that we simply have too much love.

On the contrary, most of us complain just how we are not loved enough, do not feel loved and do not have people to love.

So let each of us not miss an opportunity to love.

Let us not miss an opportunity to tell another just how much they are loved.

Let us not miss an opportunity to tell someone else just how much we love them in our life... just how beautiful they are... just how they make such a difference to us.

So many words and songs of the heart go unspoken and unsung.

This is one of the biggest tragedies of our lives and the lives of others.

When we are aware of what we miss out on when we do not express or receive with an open heart the love directed at us... we can make the change.

And we won't waste a moment of our lives... we will express love with a vengeance, we will hear the sounds and words of love... we will see the expressions of love which enter our life and we will mirror all of this by being a love god or goddess.

As we do this, we will know ourselves, perhaps for the first time.

And it will be bliss.

So dear and beautiful friend.. do open your heart and share what is going on for you on this subject or any subject

I love you

Send Some Love To The World

In my many years as a hippy I have met a number of beautiful people such as you. People who always send out a positive vibe. People who hug strangers and make them feel at home. People who look at you eye to eye and all you see is love. This is a very powerful thing. I’ve seen how it moves people. Don’t underestimate what your love can do! It is the force that heals. It can transform the violence and hatred inside people.

Unfortunately there never seem to be enough people like you! The truth, however, is that we can ALL be like this! What it takes is letting go of the ego, the fears, the expectations, and letting the LIGHT fill you inside. Then you must communicate this love to all those you meet. When you meet someone, look them in the eye. Hold their gaze. Let yourself fill with love and send this through your eyes to the other person. IT WORKS!

Just be aware how powerful this is. I once did this to my friend’s ex-wife and she hounded me for months with phone calls, letters and poems (about me). I only did it because I’d returned from Kauai, Hawaii where I’d been living on Secret Beach for two weeks. I guess I was as naturally high as I’d ever been. Anyway this woman to whom I was not attracted, wouldn’t take no for an answer. I learned then I had to use the love “force” judiciously.

Those who hate are lacking love in their lives. Love is the cure for them. When hippies get together (usually in a circle) and send love out to the universe, it is much appreciated and well used. The first step for those who hate (and fear) is find a way to love oneself. To forgive oneself for what one has done and thought. Then from self-forgiveness comes self-love. You certainly can’t love others if you have no respect for yourself. Those who hate usually hate themselves and their own situation. Everyone creates his own reality. It can be changed at will.

Now about taking a van across country. Of course! Why not? I just took a trip like that last year from Maine to San Diego! It’s something everyone should do at least once in their lives if not a dozen times. A van is the best way to go too. You have room for stuff and can usually sleep inside if necessary. You also have room for extra riders!

OK, so you wanna know the meaning of life. Well I can tell you, you won’t find it reading THIS webpage!

Bringing Heaven To Our Door

Affirmation for Monday December 21st

I will not join the conspiracy to take myself and others out of love and into the space of fear... I follow my own heart and know that until we all love one another... everybody...we will be denying ourselves heaven. By becoming love we bring heaven to our door.

IT might appear there is a conspiracy to take us out of love.

It might seem that there are people in authority, people close to us who would rather we were in a state of fear than in a place of love.

Shame on them.

Yet even although we might be talked into walking away from love, the choice is entirely up to us.

Do we listen to them?

Who said so and why do we believe them?

In one screen at our cinema of life we have love with all the qualities that align us with all that is good, beautiful and truthful.

In the other screen we have fear which encompasses all that is conflict, anger, revenge, acrimony and mistrust.

And which movie we show up at is entirely up to us. It is our most important choice. It is a choice between heaven and hell.

If we choose to believe them when they say war is justified or it is right to end the lives of some for the greater good, then we step into cinema of horror. Our heart will tell us not to believe such nonsense.

There never was a good war or a bad peace. Whoever said that was following their heart and not their messed up head!

If we choose to believe them that people are fearful and oppressive and unloving and not to be trusted, then we align ourselves with the energy of separation, isolation and disconnection.

It is the energy of spiritual losers.

If we choose to believe them when they tell us not to love so and so or not to believe there is good in everybody, then we take a bitter pill.

But, if on the other hand, we choose to go into our heart to decide what is right and what is not right then we can move gracefully nearer to heaven.

When we learn the power of love and forgiveness, of acceptance, and of non judgment we step onto higher ground.

When we learn that love and understanding is a way of life then we can begin to create the bliss we so much desire to experience in our life.

And despite the logic and wisdom of choosing loving options there will be those who strive to take us out of love.

For their own selfish motives.

Because they can make more money and gain more power when people are fighting among themselves and fearful and not trusting.

Because of the simple fact that as they are miserable and separated they wish the same for all of us.

But let us not allow others to steer us away from love, from loving communication and loving actions.

Just because others are not loving, does not mean we have to join them in being unloving.

Just because others would rather we did not commune with this person or that does not mean we have to join the crowd.

Our strength and power comes when we allow ourselves to be a vessel of love, to make loving choices and decisions.

If we do not do this, then our power is being drained, our essence not allowed to come into expression.

We are allowing others to commit violence on us and are committing violence upon ourselves.

We need to understand that until we love one another we cannot enter the gates of heaven... and that means loving everyone, even those whom it might appear hardest to love.

Love is universal... it knows no boundaries, has no exclusions.

Only when we love totally can we experience and attain heaven.. there is no other way.

Want heaven? Love more and more....

So dear and beautiful friend... do open your heart and share what is going on for you on this subject or any subject

I love you
