Living out love......

We all go through the
crucible of life. We have
our 'dark nights of the
soul'. We're usually on
the threshold of change,
major life shifts.

Choosing to live in love,
you will be tested. Like
gold, there is dross that
must be extracted in
order for it to be pure.

So we go through tests.
Sometimes they are more
like trials. Sometimes,
there are no words to
describe the emotions,
the pain.

There's two things that
I know to do in such
circumstances.

One, surrender to it.
Especially if there's
nothing you can do
about it physically. Even
if you've made mistakes
that you can't go back
and redo or fix.

You forgive yourself.
Love yourself anyway.
And surrender.

The second thing you
can do is, allow others
to love, encourage and
support you. You know
the people in your life
who will be there to
do this for you. You
know the ones who
will not.

Hint: Get around the
ones who will :).

There's healing for
you. There's healing
for me. There's plenty
of love here for us
both.

Living and loving it out,
Michael

I feel like the most blessed man alive with amazing friends. Wow! How'd I get so lucky?

Heart Note.....

A lot of feedback has come my way
regarding the "God is Love" post.
All of it very positive.

The mind of love IS the mind of God.
The Bible says, "You have the mind
of Christ." I've never been one to
water down spiritual truth. Thus,
I embrace that truth totally.

As I'm searching for answers in
my own life, I meditate and pray
a lot. Especially in the bed during
the night.

I believe God speaks to me during
the quiet. Sometimes, God is just
quiet during the quiet.

Last night, the thought occurred to
me, "What if everything in my life
changed?" What if I abandoned
all of my present thinking and just
allow God to bring whatever else
is needed in my life to replace it?

There's a place that I want to go
to in my life in love, in God. There's
a place of peace and bliss that I
want to live. Deeper than I've
ever been before.

What if it takes walking away from
some present relationships? What
if it takes walking away from some
ways of thinking, some pride, some
means of approaching my life that
very likely haven't been working?

I'm feeling a shift inside. The thought
even occurred to me, what if I don't
write anymore?

Yesterday, an amazing friend
responded to me and planted a
seed thought in my heart and
mind. I shared with him some
rough times I'd seen as of late.
He planted a seed thought that
challenged me.

He said, "Surrender to it all."
Only four words. Six syllables.
Powerful depth.

Sometimes, I pray and tell God,
"Take complete control of my
life." In fact, I do that oftentimes.
I'm quite sincere in saying, asking
this.

I want to live in that place of
love and surrender.

I'm not sure why I'm sharing my
heart on such an open and deep
level today. Perhaps you're feeling
what I'm feeling. If so, you and I
will get closer today.

Maybe its to let you know that
though I'm seeking and reaching
deeper in my life, I've not arrived.
I think its essential to be vulnerable.
Its the only way that you can
authentically grow in your life.

I appreciate you being a part of
my life. I am humbled that you
allow me to be a part of your life.

I appreciate you more than you
could ever imagine.

Cascades of love and blessing,
Michael
