Happy LOVE Day to the energy of Divine LOVE.

Today is a celebration of ‘Life’ day as none of us or any of Creation would exist without the energy of LOVE manifesting things into being. LOVE Is all around everywhere we look in the seen and unseen realms.

It’s a LOVE-soaked Universe from the Adamantine Particle to the Absolute Infinity. Nothing is not LOVE.

Every moment contains LOVE as energy, as Divinity. as the content and context of Life.

We don’t need to try to get LOVE, earn LOVE, or find LOVE because it’s what we already are—what ALL of Creation is.

We are in LOVE, and LOVE is in us.

If we try to deny or resist LOVE, we’ll suffer in our misperception, but LOVE will still hold the SOUL of our existence. LOVE will continue whispering sweet everythings into our conscious awareness.

If we believe we don’t deserve LOVE, LOVE will still be there, reminding us in infinite ways of how we already are what we think we can’t possibly attain. We need only the courage to transcend our unbelief and allow the Truth to hold us.

We may think we’ve never experienced true LOVE, but LOVE will keep beating our hearts and breathing our lungs until we pass into another dimension. And even then, the lifestream of LOVE will continue to pulse through the eternal Soul of our existence.

We simply cannot be apart from LOVE because we are immersed within it.

LOVE is living us, guiding us, moving us, transforming us, healing us, and doing all the things everywhere, all at once, all the time.

The world is a 24/7 display of LOVE as Life is LOVE reflected in infinite mirrors casting beauty from every angle.

Sun, clouds, trees, flowers, rocks, birds, dogs, fish, rivers, lakes, and mountains are all LOVE.

You, me, your neighbor, the grocery clerk, and strangers across the globe—all LOVE.

The computer or phone you read this on is also LOVE at the atomic level. Everything in existence is alive and in constant motion deep within. What’s moving every atom? The energy of divine LOVE.

How many conscious decisions did we make today to wake up, be alive, move our limbs, and start our day?

How many conscious decisions did we make to inhale and exhale, pump our blood, digest our food, see, smell, taste, hear, and feel?

Did we have to make all these phenomena happen by pushing a button, pulling a lever, or swiping left or right?


The flow of life just is—and LOVE is the current.

We are alive because LOVE says so.

We are eternally plugged in.

Some of us are in dire straits mentally and emotionally, in deep pain physically or spiritually, in debilitating grief, or in combat zones fighting for our lives literally or figuratively. But LOVE remains everywhere in our midst. We need only hold on to LOVE’s lifeline.


By letting go.

If we stop resisting what is and sink into the ebb and flow of the LOVE flowing within and without us, which is one and the same, inner freedom exists. From inner freedom, infinite possible solutions to outer constraints emerge.

LOVE never lets us down.

LOVE never turns a blind eye.

LOVE never judges or condemns.



What is LOVE ultimately?


When we let go of resisting what we think we are…

When we stop letting ourselves down…

When we stop turning a blind eye to our beautiful reflection, leaving ourselves behind…

When we stop judging and condemning our existence…

When we stop doubting every aspect of our life…

When we stop believing we are not enough…

When we stop living from fear and separation anxiety…

…and re-member that we never truly left our Divine Godparents because the one Spirit is indivisible,

THEN we step into the freedom we always had to LOVE the LOVE that we are.

This liberation opens our eyes and hearts to see and know the LOVE that defines everyone and everything else.

God chose to experience God’s self through infinite fractals of Creation. Each fractal is a mirror reflecting an aspect of God to God, revealing what God could become.

Each moment, God looks in this infinite cosmic mirror and says, “I LOVE ME—ALL OF ME, EVERY FACET. AS IS.”

That is ultimate, unconditional self-LOVE.

For God to look at God’s Creation, specifically humanity, and observe all the misperceptions and distorted perspectives leading to so much pain and destruction and still be able to say, “Yep. I LOVE ME… even so,” is beyond telling.

I need only ask myself, “Who am I to dare do anything different?”

The truth is, I dared to do many things differently. It took me 52 years to stop the unconscious arrogance of thinking I knew better than my Creator. For more than five decades, I did NOT love myself and judged myself ruthlessly—which means I couldn’t possibly love others adequately or refrain from judging them either.

As within, so without.

We are many fractals of the ONE, so all judgment is self-judgment.

All lack of LOVE toward other is lack of LOVE toward self.

As Rollin McCraty from HeartMath Institute says, “Lack of alignment with our deepest self is the most unrecognized stress on Earth.”

Let that sink in.

The most significant stress is fear. We fear being who we are, and we fear not being who we are.

It’s time to embrace and embody what we are: LOVE.

I’ll be 54 next month. These past two years of my life have been the greatest ever. The healings I’ve experienced physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually are profound and keep coming.


Because I know I am LOVE, and I know I am worthy simply because I exist. That’s it—nothing to earn or strive for or achieve. I am here to Be LOVE and let my Light shine in a unique way. And so are you.

I don’t just believe it; I’ve embodied it at a cellular level. You can, too.

As a Soul, I can’t look at anyone or anything around me with any less LOVE or compassion. My ego mind identity still tries, but I keep reminding her she’s mistaken.

Radical self-LOVE is how we change our experience. How we change the world we are all a part of and intricately connected to and with. We LOVE all our parts so we can LOVE all of Creation.

LOVE is.

You are.


Happy LOVE Day to you and yours, which is all and ours.
