And so…

We die to that which no longer serves us

Only to be reborn to that which we long for beyond all else

Remember…

A Poetry Moment…

galaxy and stars

I Walk Alone                                            ©Aliana Alani 2016

I walk alone but am not lonely.
I flirt with stars that call my name.
Winds dance through the heathers
of my remembering and leave a
trail of perfume in their wake.

I walk alone but am not lonely.
Galaxies dissolve like sparkling grains
of golden sands beneath my feet.
I walk midst sunrises and sunsets
and wisps of tomorrows yet to come.

I walk alone but am not lonely.
Heaven is my gate and Eternity my home.
I turn and find You everywhere. I turn
and look and walk, alone and yet not lonely.
For I am everywhere, alone, not lonely.

I walk in never-ending beauty.
Reflecting light – alone, not lonely
Reflecting love, I am – alone, not lonely.
Reflecting, reflecting, I am You
Everywhere – alone but never lonely.

 

Thoughts to ponder…

 

COMING HOME TO LOVE                     Aliana Alani ©2016

 

As a world community and as a species, we stand on the precipice of loving. To dive deep into the ocean of love or to linger at its edges becomes the question. It is a question that often feels perennial, for we have been here before. We have danced its dance, fluttered its wings of possibility, even dipped our toes into its serene waters, and then, except for a few, retreated back to the comfort zones of what is commonly called, the norm.

Prophets and messiahs over the ages have all spoken to the essence and power of love. Sometimes we have listened. But more often than not, we have morphed and crafted those gifts of knowing into forms that suit our desires and agendas of the time. We have chosen to take the small road, the droplets rather than the ocean.

For all our inner longing to love and be love – and everyone has it, no matter how prickly they may appear on the outside – we seem perpetually afraid to make the jump.

Yet here we are again.

Never has love been needed more, craved more, or called for more. Never has the world needed more healing, nor have we needed more loving. So what do we do?

And when we speak of the essence of love, what do we mean?

In truth, we are not talking about personal love at all. We are not talking about romantic love, as dazzling as that can be, nor familial love, as all-consuming as it sometimes is. No, the essence of love permeates every form/structure in existence down to the very cells, atoms, molecules, and particle waves of being. The essence of love is eternal, everlasting, endless – divine. It knows no limits, carries no judgements, has no bounds, and is a part of us all.

It is our true nature. Our heart of hearts. Our inner sanctum.  It is who we are.

So when we close off to this love, no matter how rational the reasons nor how fearful we may be at the time, we are closing a door to the very essence of our being – that divine spark of love that lives within us all, that nourishes us into loving expression. No wonder we often feel less than we know we can be.

So here we are at the precipice again. I have been a spiritual facilitator for a long time and I know in my  heart of hearts that this is our moment, our opportunity as a world community and as divine beings in human form to jump into that ocean of love and let it heal and transform ourselves and our world. This is our moment to come together, within ourselves and with each other, and to dare to love.

Remember – Love is the answer. Always has been. Always will be.

 

*If this resonates with you, please do share it. I’ll be posting more on Coming Home to Love and putting up a special page. I’ll also be putting out a call to join me in this leap of love, so click ‘follow’ if you want to know more.   

Bless you all    Be kind to each other.   Let love prevail.

Love…

For all our ingenuity, our ability to reach for the stars and to create technologies both positive and not-so, we seem to be incredibly slow on the uptake when it comes to love.

We seem determined to put it into little boxes with keys designed only for a few. We seem determined to believe in maxims that both quantify and qualify. We seem determined to judge. And so, again, after millenniums of this, we miss the point.

And here it is – LOVE is a universal energy that flows through all and everything. It is unlimited, endless, it knows no bounds. To be poetic, it is the essence emanating from the Heart of the Divine. And so it is like a river that flows through all of life. One might even venture to say that it is, therefore, the essence of life itself.

So, is it not possible, that by demanding that it be expressed only in certain ways with certain people at certain times, we who do that in fact cut ourselves off from the very thing we all seek – the Love of the Divine Itself – to be ‘home’ again in the cradle of Divine Love?

LOVE = LOVE = LOVE

The judgments and divisions are of our own making.

Be kind to each other. Let love prevail.

Remembering…

Five years ago yesterday, April 24th, a beautiful light transcended this world, moving into a different level of being. His name was Sathya Sai Baba.

baba
Baba was many things to many people. For millions, he was a guiding light. For others, a challenge, even a threat. For me, strange as it might sound to some, he was like family – the spirit of a being you have known for so long but haven’t seen in eons. The universe brought me to his door, he opened it, I came through, and life was never the same.

His was a universal message. Though he spoke of many things over many years, there were two constants that wove like a gentle wave of energy through everything – Know that you are Divine, and be the Love you truly are. These are messages I too felt called to share when I became a spiritual facilitator.

As the years passed and I walked what sometimes seemed like different roads (that rabbit hole being one of them), Baba still wafted through the ethers of my world, usually popping up when I needed it most, a wee reminder that I was loved and protected.

Yesterday, as tears surprisingly flowed, I found myself remembering, and in the remembering, slowly coming home to a heightened level of purpose – one of those ‘Remember why you came here’ moments. tribute-graphic - sai babaAnd so once again, I find myself in deep love and gratitude to the man with eyes that could take you straight to the heart of the Eternal – Sathya Sai Baba.

I woke this morning with these words – they are for you – each and every one of you. I hope you will take them to heart.

 

You are the love you seek,
The peace you crave,
The abundance you desire.
You – infinite glorious radiance of the Eternal,
You are the one you have been waiting for.

Create a well…

Create a well of love in your life

And invite the world to drink from it.

If it is from the Eternal,

It will never run dry.
