What if…

What if a world of love is only a breath away – or standing close by, maybe even beside you…

 

What if all you have to do is open your heart a little more – shower your days with loving kindness, for others, for you…

 

What if all that is needed is to see through the eyes of love, and then live from there…

 

What if…

                        What if…

Consider…

Consider the possibility that you are all that is …

And as such, Love is your natural state of being.

Consider…

 

 

A little poetry … just because…

 

 

I DANCED

I danced once
With the king of heaven
In the land of saffron

 

Midst tinkling bells
And droning chants
Along invisible pathways
And perfumed winds
That whispered sacred promises

 

I danced
Until what was could not be found
And only what could be remained

 

We danced, the king of heaven and I
In the land of saffron
Under a banyan tree of golden light
That only we could see

 

And when it was over
(if it was ever over)
Only Love remained

If I could tell you…

IF I COULD TELL YOU…                                                    by: Aliana Alani ©2018

If I could tell you a story, it would be about how beautiful you are.
It would be a story of love, and laughter, and possibility.
If I could tell you.

If I could tell you a story here and now, would you listen?
Or are you busy – with phones, and games, and the clutter of living?
If I could tell you.

And if I told you, would anything be different, in your world and mine?
Or would we wander, still, like lost souls in the desert of remembering?
If I could tell you.

For if I could tell you – the short form of it at least –
This is what I would say:

You are as beautiful as the sun and moon and stars.
As special as that which knows no beginning and no end.
You are the light of day, and the darkness of night.

You are unique, unlike all else, and yet you are one with all things.
You matter – and though it oft times seems that all this you do not remember,
I would tell you anyway, if you would listen.

I would tell you.

Stories –

STORIES –
single-red-rose-3by: Aliana Alani ©2018

 

You can love them or hate them.
Laugh till you cry or cry till you sob.

You can bravely follow page by page,
Or sneak peek to the end, to be sure to be sure.

You can raise their swords of truth as though they were your own,
Or shake your head at the sheer folly of where they appear to go.

Through them – you can be a swashbuckler, a Cinderella, an angel, or a spy.
You can dust off your dancing shoes,
Or race that Formula One car to the finish.
In some, you can even fly.

And if they are good enough – if they are well told –
They will, at some point, capture your heart.
From that moment on, for however long a time,
You will believe them to be your own.

Forget not…

Alright you Shining Lights, you makers of dreams, you daring souls who appreciate the slightly different  – THIS IS FOR YOU.

Four more months. That’s it. After December 31st, 2017, there will be NO MORE personal commissioned templates – at least through me. To those of you who don’t know me, this might sound like an oh well kind of thing, a would have been nice but there you go, no big deal. But trust me, after doing these for people in different parts of the world for well over 25 years now (My God, has it been that long?!) and watching the positive growth/change these can bring, it’s a pretty big deal.Gateway to the Heart

So ponder, yes. Think about it, for sure. Listen to your heart. If your heart says YES, then act. Don’t wait. Time flies these days. And templates, at least the big Master ones (which you just might want to get), take awhile to do.

Have a bliss-filled peaceful harmonious day!

 

 

 

A Light in the Window

I have just put up a  new page called, A Light in the Window – a call of love in action to all – inspired by a woman in Ireland many  years ago – Mary Robinson. A light in the window is a call to – BE A LIGHT UNTO YOUR WORLD – to take a stand for kindness and love here and now.

LET’S IMAGINE, YOU & I…

PUTTING A LAMP in the window of our homes, and turning it on – a soft glow that shines for all to see – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, all year round. A light, that by its very burning, says here stands a home for decency, kindness, and caring.  Here shines a light of peace and love for all.

To learn more about what this is all about, please go to the page A Light in the Window If it touches your heart, turn on that light – and share this posting (and the ones to come) wherever you can. And bless you for doing so.

There’s another new page…

rising sun

Yes, there is another new page just added to 22shangrila. It’s called – WHAT’S NEW.

As you might guess, it’s about things that are new, current, or about to happen. Mostly (but not totally) it will be about things that you can buy. And it’s there to make it easier for you to check out what’s available without having to scroll through the main section of postings. The plan is to update, hence change, it every month.

There are two new ‘bits’ of information on the page now, with more to be added as the month goes along. I hope you enjoy it and find things there that are right for you to have in your life. Everything in this work is there to help you be a better you.

Remember – You are the shining light. You are the love.

 

Ask only…

Ask not of others
to be what you want
them to be.

Ask only of yourself
to be who you
truly are.

For your consideration … Straight to the Heart

STRAIGHT TO THE HEART

is a new Template from The Garden Series created by Aliana Alani ©2016

 

Digital Camera

Straight to the Heart (Snippet view)

 

Size:  15” x 22 ¼ “

Done on high quality watercolour paper in gold, silver, and deep garnet pens

 

Focus:  Frequently we move through life in small steps – a little one here, perhaps a slightly larger one there. Yet every once in a while, someone will choose to do what we often call a quantum leap; to go directly to the core of life, whatever that might mean at the time, bypassing all else.

STRAIGHT TO THE HEART is a template that does exactly what its name says. It takes us straight to the heart – of The Garden and of love, and ultimately, to the heart of the Divine within. It is uncomplicated and uncluttered, pure and potent.

 

For pricing and to purchase, email: aliana@22shangrila.com. Please mark ‘Templates from The Garden’ in the subject section. Alternatively you can leave a message below.

As always, I wish you much joy.
