July 2018

Dear One,
I have just received the most heart opening, body relaxing massage. I feel so spacious and grateful and am willing to be a witness to my life.
I would have been married 15 years July 13th... what a gift this experience has been... opening to death, opening to loss, letting go of fear.
In this moment, I am feeling an opening. What does "opening" mean? Everything that has ever happened to me now seems like an enormous gift, a teaching. As the "angel of body healing" was going through my body, I actually felt and experienced every cell in my body that held my history soften, and melt. As I am writing, I remember what Emmanuel said:
    "Pain does not exist except in history or in anticipation.
     If one could remain in the moment of NOW, there
     would be sensation without pain. The part you identify
     as your physical body is only your costume."

I am breathing into this.
It is an "Aha" experience. I am not my body. In this moment, I want to thank my body for being the vessel of my pain, my pleasure, my sadness and my joy. There is no doubt in my mind, that I have entered this life, into this body to bring the light of my eternal consciousness into the darkness, and transform it. I came to bring this remembering to myself and to you dearest friend. I came to experience love and to share it. Love is all there is. Love exists beyond the death of the body because we exist eternally. Our consciousness is eternal, and therefore so are we. In physical form we are dancing a dance... and the entire point of dancing is to surrender to the dance. So it is with life... the act of surrendering to "What is."

I have come into this life to learn and to transform fear into love. What then does love mean?  Unconditional love has no demands, no requirements no expectations.

"Love means setting aside walls, fences, unlocking doors, and saying YES!" ~ Emmanuel

I feel gratitude for the path I have chosen, for every one who has loved me, and has allowed me to love them, and for those who have offered me the conflicts that turned out to be my biggest lessons... I thank you all; my husbands, my children, my grand children, my friends, my students, my Doctors and my very dear Dentist, my teachers, and especially Emmanuel and all the Angels who have stepped into my life and offer me their loving care.

This poem has always been one of my favorites. When I look into a sky filled with clouds... I think of this poem.

"Even after all this time
The Sun never says to the Earth,
"You owe me."
Look what happens
With a love like that,
It lights the whole sky."
~ Hafiz

I have prayed to be a channel for unconditional love.

I ask you to take some time and meditate on what I have written.
Are you willing to let go of your demands, and expectations that
"Others" be different than they are?
Are you willing to let go of your demands that you be different than you are?
Are you willing to accept your history and see what lessons it has offered you?
Are you willing to be independent and embrace your power?
Are you willing to be the Sun?
Are you willing to enter the Oneness?
Are you willing to be a vessel for LOVE?

I wish you a truly Happy Independence day.
