BEFORE WE KNOW…

As the sun begins its shine upon the morning,
Sending flecks of gold light along its path,
I find myself grateful.

Grateful for the budding warmth.
Grateful for the birdsong building.
Grateful for this garden of life,
You and I call – home.

A slow-turning globe of endless beauty.
A world that dazzles with its diversity
And humbles with its call to greatness.

Yes, things sometimes fall away.
They can crumble and burn unexpectedly
Or ebb and tide when least desired.

Tears fall then. Hearts crack open.
And when they do, before we know,
Before we understand,
New life has begun.

Rebirth
A new dawn
And the garden, more abundant than before

Our garden –

                A garden of Love.

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…

Dare to love…

 

Perhaps Martin Luther King said it best – “Darkness cannot drive out darkness. Only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate. Only love can do that.”

As we wake up to the news of increasing hatred and violence, and all the pain and suffering that can bring, this thought comes to mind –

Dare to be the light of love unto your world. For YOU and your light of love are needed. Perhaps now more than ever. Never doubt that. Never doubt the power of love.

Kind thoughts … Kind words … Love in Action.

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.

A Light of Love

THIS IS A LIGHT OF LOVE.     If we all turned on such a light, think what it would say about our lamp2-txt-sized-downworld. Think what healing might come out of that.

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.

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

Let the Love shine!

single-red-rose-3IT’S SUNDAY … So let the Love shine, folks.

Let it pour from your heart like the beacon of possibility it is meant to be. Let it radiate. Let it heal. Let it empower. Let it be the light of Love that nourishes and enriches this world, the Love that nourishes and enriches you. See it flowing forth like a never ending waterfall … and see the world (no matter what form it may be in) drink from the cup of that Love and be transformed.

Let Love prevail. And let it help our world prosper again.

Tiny Windows … Tiny Templates

Each Tiny Window touches into an aspect and vibration of The Garden of Love, providing a small portal into a world of harmony & peace through the power of sacred geometry.

 

Done in various small sizes, and on the same high-quality watercolour paper as the large templates, they are an opportunity to celebrate The Garden of Love, albeit in a petite way, whether you choose to buy one as artwork, as a gift for another, or as a means of dipping into a world you wish to encourage into being for yourself or your family. Each one is an original (not a print).

TINY WINDOWS are available from OCTOBER 21st to DECEMBER 26th, 2016.

Prices will range between $35-$65 (+shipping/packaging), and are in Canadian funds.

I’ll be opening these TINY WINDOWS gradually over the available purchase time. There probably won’t be a lot of them, so if you’ve ever wanted some of this work or have wanted to buy one for a friend, this is the perfect opportunity. They’re small, they’re beautiful, they’re powerful, and they are so affordable. Plus they help you tap into The Garden of Love. What could be better than that?

Email me if you want one – aliana@22shangrila.com. When you do, I’ll tell you what’s currently available and the prices. You can choose which one most resonates with you. And don’t forget – mark TINY WINDOWS in the subject section!

Remember

Love is the answer.

Always has been.        Always will be.

 

It’s our Day of Love

single-red-rose-3As many of you know, each Sunday I call on all of us to help MAKE SUNDAY A DAY OF LOVE. I’ve been doing this for a few weeks. During such times, we express and send love into our world, close friends or not. We share kindness and compassion where we can. We celebrate the day with a prayer that such  love might go on forever.

This week, the Love is for YOU.

No matter where you are, YOU matter. No matter what you look like, how you dress (or don’t), how you share the magic of your days, YOU matter.

It is often easier to give love to others. And yet without drinking from the Well of Love ourselves, how can we truly share that love with the world?

It is time to nourish our own inner gardens. Celebrate our inner beauty. Honor our inner wisdom and knowing. And allow ourselves, each and every one of us, to blossom into the magnificent gardens of love we were always meant to be.

After all – to be a tad poetic – YOU are the breeze that wafts within tall trees, the golden leaves that fall in Autumn, the slender buds that bloom in Spring. YOU are the rippling waters of a gentle pond and the crashing waves midst a stormy sea. YOU are today and tomorrow NOW. YOU are the reflections of those around you, the reflection of yourself in life’s slender mirror. YOU are an endless garden, an open heart, a robin’s song. YOU are all these things and so much more.

LOVE YOU. Why? Because YOU matter.

So go ahead, make today, SUNDAY, the day YOU LOVE YOU.
