Why are we here?

Deer and Tree at Sunrise-v.1

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We did not come here
to this planet of deep mystery
to fix what we think is wrong

We did not come here to suffer
though surely we can do so

We came here to look at the stars
and remember where we came from

We came here to look into each other’s eyes
and see ourselves

We came here to thank the flowers
for showing us that we are blossoms, too

We came here to Love

Drama grows like weeds
in a world of duality
so we root ourselves in oneness. . .
which is acknowledging
who we really are

Love is always On Time

The World Is All Love

Rose Quartz in Grass-5870The world is all Love. It’s here, without asking to be recognized, taken care of, classified, divided, or polluted. It simply is as it is, with no ulterior motives. The world is unconditional – and that which is unconditional is Love.

Love Story Of Our Times

Up, up, up the winding mountain road to enter the gates to sacred space and swallows flitting across the charged azure blue sky. She meditates on a grassy terrace.  He does Tai Chi.  She does Qigong.  He writes of how Spirit brought them together, even years before their wedding, and how Spirit has kept them together and brought them to this amazing panoramic power spot – marking their commitment to each other and to Spirit.

Quietly together they wander through this stepped city of ancient stone, wings flying high over the deep verdant valleys below. Stairs are climbed. Portals are passed through and a grassy place to sit upon is found, out of the flow of the masses that courses through the main paths. A retreat in the midst of Machu Picchu is gladly accepted by her, in her pink, and him, in his gray.

She colors the scene with her pencils and he writes. They reveal their sacred stones that accompany them on this pilgrimage, some to be left as offerings. She brought rose quartz angels. He brought a star rose quartz. Nothing needs to be spoken between hearts that speak without words. She shows him her rose quartz sphere and their stones touch in a moment of communion.

Sacred space is opened and they sit with their mesa stones on high, overlooking a plaza of green, framed by gray rock that has a story to tell. She and he are in “their” spot, a spot that was waiting patiently for them, where their souls and the soul of this place touch, where the work and the travel and the daily tasks of living have fallen away. She and he and their stones and this place are their world.

She rolls the rose quartz sphere far into a crack at the base of the ancient wall they sit next to. He sends his rose quartz in after hers where, together, they will continue the communion of this great life, like the soul mates who left them there.

Three Days of Love Pledge – December 20-22, 2012

Tuesday, December 11th, 2012

We have signed the THREE DAYS OF LOVE Pledge created by the Shift Network and Birth2012.com.

The Pledge says “I commit to share words and actions of love on December 20, 21, and 22, 2012.”

Will you join us and please share with others?

>>Update June 2013 – I plan to suggest to Birth2012 folks that they change the wording and continue on with the Love Pledge. “We/I commit to share words and action of love everyday.”, perhaps? Their page is still up and the link below works.  ~ Lisa

From Birth2012.com – Hearts - original painting by Jim Papp

“We are delighted to be launching an exciting global initiative with Deepak Chopra, Marianne Williamson, Barbara Marx Hubbard, don Miguel Ruiz, Michael Beckwith, Shiva Rea, and many other luminaries today.

It’s an experiment in creating a global movement of the heart to begin a new era with love, generosity, and kindness.

We invite you to join this “love movement” by personally committing to sharing words and actions of love for three days, from December 20 – 22. 

Imagine what will happen if people around the world commit to this: amazing acts of friendship, random gifts, hugs from strangers – we can remember ourselves as one human family!

So if you’ve been wondering what one thing you can do to make a difference, this is a potent and fun one.

Get details and sign your name to the pledge here: Three Days of Love”

Thanks for signing and sharing!
