Today is the day of celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. I look up to him and the shift he created in this world, the very strength of his being and the power of his heart. I am moved today and every day by what this man accomplished by trusting his heart and his vision for unity, community, love and respect. Thank you Martin Luther King, Jr  It is because of this man that I have human rights today. I am deeply moved by his beautiful being and heart. His stand in the face of absolutely no agreement in this world. His expansion that all human beings are indeed human beings and deserving to be honored as such. My hero.

Expansive
 
It’s beautiful, the loop of love. I see the love in me and so I see the love in my life. Surrounded by unconditional love by those close to me, I can only be present to the love I am. I am surrounded by such extraordinary people as I love myself and know myself as love. And so I see the love in me. The most beautiful loop that can only be expansive.
 
How does love show up in your life as a reflection of the love you are?

Honoring Self Worth

Someone had told me once that we teach people how to treat us. We teach them with what we put up with, we teach them with our own inner dialogue that we think no one else can hear but is clear as day in our mannerisms. The silent echo that reverberates in every connection. I’ve been starting to look lately at how my silent echo has taught people to treat me. How I’ve treated myself or viewed, or not viewed, myself and how that has been reflected in my life. It’s been interesting to get present to this and present to my inner dialogue. Awareness of self worth is a beautiful, freeing and grounding experience.

Rather than making cyclical thought wrong I’ve found it is simply unfed, unfocused creativity and passion asking for purpose. A souls need to be heard in surrender and release of illusion of control. Surrendering fears to the doors of adventure and excitement in the now, a blank canvas beckons my unperturbed strokes. I surrender.
 
How do you feed your creativity and passion?
