10 Things Blocking Agape~Love Quest~Day 5



Sometimes it seems as if there is no love around you. Serious faces, worried looks and anxious glances fill the heads of the people who walk through your life. Mostly, eyes avoid contact.

In uncertain times, we tend to fall back, at least internally, to a specific state of comfort. If concern and focus on the problem (whatever it is) is where you spend the most time, that's where your natural zone is and where you'll head when under stress.

What happens on our journey through “time” is that we arrive knowing every aspect, dimension and version of ourselves. There is no “veil” and we spend time everywhere, as every possibility of us is “real”. We are awake and aware.

As infants react to these “alternative realities”, we, the humans in this “reality”, do nothing to reinforce what they are seeing. Not until they react to something we can also perceive. Then we smile, clap, hug and encourage them. This is how the separation begins. Those places are deemed our “imagination”, and relegated to fantasy.

Slowly, we train each other to focus where we are looking. “The forgetting” is the beginning of the process of going to sleep. Deep sleep happens at puberty – when we become cognizant of all that is “real” and put away our super hero's and fairy tales. We get serious. We grow up.

This is neither good nor bad, yet it does explain how we, adults now, have only a small amount of fairy dust or super power to pull out and have fun with. We thought that in order to be a responsible powerful adult - we had to put those things away.

I guess it depends on where you want your success and what success means for you. If you are reading this, you are awake and perhaps are re-defining success. It may be time to pull out the capes and wings and fly around a bit; just because.

Loving yourself is something you came here doing. You focused on what made you happy. You looked around – a lot. You noticed, heard and smelled every new thing. You wondered about someone who talked in another language, looked different or had a funny way of getting around; and you, unafraid, asked “why”. You laughed often. You cried freely. You stopped both on a moments notice.

You did not come here stuck on replay – doomed to react the same way over and over to similar events. Somewhere and somehow that behavior is learned by our ego self. We are easily addicted as humans and with each passing year our “need for a fix” just grows. We require more and more for the same hit, in order to feel some sense of equilibrium.

Loving yourself means adjusting those addictions. Turn the dial back until they are closer to the addictions you had as a child. The only things on your mind then were happiness, curiosity, comfort, fun and exploration. You did everything you did to get one or all of the above. The purpose was love. The focus was you.

As you love yourself, you'll notice a softness emerge. It is difficult to explain, yet easily felt. As a child your shields were down and you let everything in. If something hurt – you cried and were over it. You knew all things were temporary; every moment was NOW, and you didn't want to miss any of it. You were present.

Finding a space in your heart for unconditional love means, just maybe, moving some other things out of the way. Suggestions for what to box up would include:
  • should
  • can't
  • no
  • won't
  • have to
  • must
  • need to
  • won't ever
  • afraid to
  • regret

If all that freed up empty space makes you queasy, fill it up with fairy dust, angel wings, super powers, magic wands, light sabers and hero capes. Play. You are an exuberant, 1,000,000 watt light beam of energy. You are powered with love and move because the very force of creation deems it so.

As you remember play, you'll remember me. I was right there with you when you arrived oh so many years ago. I've been hidden behind should, can't and have to. Once you see me you'll remember our secret. We are the same. Allowing love into your own heart opens up space for our connection to be visible. We are One.

Unity happens without force or a movement or a pushing against. It occurs seamlessly with an opening up. Allow me to see your super powers. I'll show you my wings. Love yourself and I will feel your hug. That's when we'll remember.

We are the One's we've been waiting for.

See you tomorrow.

5 Steps to Fearless ~ Love Quest ~ Day 4

Picture
At the midpoint of our Quest, allow me to diverge. The motivation to do so is born of love, yet it needs to be introduced first, as typically our journey stays on a direct course – one that leads to discovering Agape. For just today, we'll discuss how to USE what you've discovered; how to demonstrate Agape.

Here's why. In the US, the “ebola crisis” has been ramped up and, in my opinion, is out of control. I've seen it everywhere today, even amongst the very young children I work with. This is Fear Porn, plain and simple. It's been orchestrated by the “powers that be”. What I am also seeing on a smaller scale, is our very personal battles recently, also with Fear. All are connected. They revolve around health, home, finances or all 3. They seem insurmountable.

It is never true that you'll not make it through. We are collectively imagining our reality and FEAR has trickled through us all – globally and individually. We are watching the death throes of a corrupt system and they are violent and extreme. It feels, for many of us, that we are experiencing those same violent extreme conditions in our lives and days.

How we create now, in the midst of this drama, determines where we land, how we fall and who we are standing next to when we do. Here is a method to guarantee a smooth arrival.

1 – Carefully evaluate what is bringing up Fear. Oh, you might call it worry, anxiety, preoccupation, nervousness or anger – but beneath each of those words whispers fear.

2 – Remember who you are. You are a piece of infinity, a light particle of pure creation. You are so much bigger than this temporary situation of “no cash”, “no home”, “illness”, “loss”, “emotional crisis”, “pain”, etc...

3 – Compare 1 and 2; put both on a scale and look at which has more value; which holds truth.(I'll give you a hint: Pick #2)

4 – Picture yourself on the weightier (#2) side of the scale now. What are you wearing, doing, saying – who are you being? Hold him/her in your minds eye. Go wild, live it up, picture your most awesome and captivating self!

5 – Get off the scale (gently). Walk over to “fearful you” (#1), take him/her by the hand and help him/her off the scale. Wrap your arms together – become One.

You cannot eradicate fear by denying, minimizing or ignoring it. Fear is a part of this reality, of you, albeit the “smaller you” part. It must be loved and absorbed to be diminished. In this way you are made whole.

We become stronger as we accept and welcome every single part of ourselves. Each aspect has lessons to both teach and learn. Allow for both and feel how much love you are capable of.

Love all of yourself. The power in that will be a shield for the Fear Porn and this is the emblem of a Wayshower. You are here to demonstrate the strength and truth of Agape. Today, right now, your light and love are needed. Not to blast in anyone's face, but to light the way; to help make the going a bit easier for the rest of us.

The world is in need of a massive dose of Agape. Demonstrate now who you know yourself to be. You are love.

We are the Ones we've been waiting for.

See you tomorrow.

10+ Signs of Love~Love Quest~Day 3



This switch to Agape will not just happen. Well, it is happening within us, yet what is meant by that first statement is this: It will take conscious effort to convince you of it.

This earth life is mesmerizing. Our days are filled with stimulation on all fronts; each vying for our attention. Within these “business as usual” moments you'll feel moments of love. You'll have to look for them.

While the news media screams at you to “Be afraid, be very afraid”, Agape whispers - “just love”. Listen.

As a species, we learn by association. These “Agape Moments” are new. They stand alone; solitary testaments to truth. You are here now to remember. Take note of every instance that was not as you expected. These may be slight variations in behavior or they may be HUGE. Either way, notice them.

Note when love emerges. If you can, jot it down. Add a note on your phone or a voice memo to yourself - “I saw love just now”.

It is in the accumulation of this, our new story, that we alter history. The media is not on every corner – you are. You came now to usher in this shift of awareness. The way to change occurs in small increments; bit by bit we unite with love.

What sorts of things are love? Let's start with ten or so, you'll add more as you get the idea.

  • Someone holding the door for you
  • Someone letting you merge in traffic
  • Someone giving you a coupon in a grocery store
  • Finding a quarter, left by someone, in the lock on your grocery cart
  • A policeman slowing down, just to wave and say hello
  • A CHICAGO POLICEMAN HELPING YOU GET INTO A FESTIVAL FOR FREE
  • A store clerk taking you right to the product you are searching for
  • People smiling at you
  • Someone handing you a CTA pass for the train
  • Someone letting you in front of them in the cashier line
  • A stranger sharing a story from their heart with you
  • Someone giving you change so you can park your car
  • A child helping another child without being asked to
  • A random hug
  • Finding a bag of fresh produce on your doorstep

These things are not new. They happen all the time. Yet we've put them in a category and mostly dismissed them as “once in awhile events”, “every so often a nice person” or luck. Here's where change happens.

As we notice and remember, we begin to expect. As we expect love, we create it. That's how it really works, how our lives are created. Agape is self love. Operating from there it's an easy jump to kindness and compassion. We are One. The world around you becomes a whole lot nicer when you are fulfilled.

What has been holding up our progress is the stories we've been using to learn. We've listened to society, institutions and the media long enough; as if we believe these stories are our own reality. They are not, unless you believe, expect and create them to be.

Tell new stories. Give yourself the gift of freedom and pursue a passion you've neglected. Then, watch how your mood is uplifted and we all look different to you. With eyes of Agape, see the moments of love surrounding your day. It is a circle. As we love each other, we love ourselves. We are One. These love moments you are immersed in are ever so much more real than the evening news.

Love yourself enough to focus on your own life – really see what's going on. There are gifts everywhere if only we keep our arms open wide enough to receive them. Let us love you. Love us back.

We are the Ones we've been waiting for.

See you tomorrow.

5 Steps to Agape ~ Love Quest ~ Day 2

Picture
Let's talk about who you are, for you are so much more than you know. This person, the one looking at you from the bathroom mirror this morning is akin to a god. This is not said lightly or in jest. This is truth. The Source of life that propels you forward each day is the energy of creation itself. The definition of “soul” is your local connection to that energy. This energy doesn't diminish as it localizes, it becomes a specific point of focus. As such, it can experience its surroundings at a local level. You are the face of that local level.

We are speaking about a specific you – but there are many. As a god, you enjoy a multitude of “lives and locales” yourself. These are the places of your dreams and “past” lives, your favorite things and obsessions. Do you see now the definition of infinity? There is no end to you.

Yet “you” are focused here now; earth, 2014. You are looking for love, some contentment, perhaps a purpose. And this is no small matter. All that you feel in this now is felt in every other, there is no separation – it's all you. Nothing is insignificant.

I've just had a demonstration of this physically. I've had a head injury and was given a narcotic for it. The reaction was immediate. The drug triggered every weakened point in my body and with one dose I was incapacitated with inflammation and illness everywhere. A gradual withdrawal, homeopathic remedies and a healer all have just about restored things to “normal”. I've felt first hand how each part of this body is connected to the other – we are always treating the whole.

Considering Agape then, and the unity of ourselves – it is not possible that hate or dislike of any part does not impact the other parts. We are One – physically, figuratively and completely. In order to experience love in every moment you'll have to feel it for all parts of you. The beauty of how it works is that you don't need to worry about how to do this anywhere but right here or anytime but right now; the connection takes care of everything else.

First, realize your Mastery. For without it, you wouldn't be here. Only Masters incarnate on earth. You have nothing to do to earn that title; it's yours. It is time to own it. It is shared by everyone you know.

Second, now that you know one of your titles, “Master”, look up to yourself. You've come through so very much to get here. Your particular gift and expertise was necessary now – during this time of awakening. Honor the gifts you bring to the table. You chose to offer them and were chosen because of them.

If you aren't clear on what those gifts are, the third thing to do is get clarity. Those gifts you came to share are the things you just can't stop doing, thinking about or researching. While immersed in them, you think of nothing else. You know “happy” then. They may not be what's putting food on your table right now, yet that doesn't matter. The joy and fulfillment they bring has no price tag.

The fourth step. With clarity and acceptance of your gifts – don't stop doing them. Increase the time and effort you put there in any amount you can. Come out of the closet with who you are. We are waiting to see you.

Now the fifth step is not a thing to do but a thing to feel. Feel the love that wells up inside while you do your thing. Honor the “rightness” you experience, the comfort with your craft, the ability and knowing that seems to spring from nowhere. Not imagined, these gifts you are discovering are from parts of you not here; but you just the same. They show up when you give permission, welcome them with love, imbue them with excitement and acknowledge them by using them. This is why you came!

You are Masters, and with acceptance of this truth you allow Agape to seep in. What's not to love? You are a brilliant bit of eternal wisdom; all wrapped up in this quirky, beautiful character called you.

Once you “get” what's magical, special and absolutely fantastic about you – you'll see love everywhere! That is Agape. Absolute acceptance of yourself. Allow it. Fearlessly find your favorite obsession and play there as much as you can. Agape is sure to emerge. You'll see.

You are the One you've been waiting for.

See you tomorrow.

So What is Agape? Join the Quest, Day 1



This Quest, in the strictest definition, is not really a Quest at all. For a “Quest” is defined as “a search or pursuit in order to find or obtain something”. You don't have to “find” agape as much as allow it to be seen. You don't need to “obtain” agape either – it is not “obtainable”.

Agape is the physical manifestation of truth. Agape is Source personified. Agape resides in the deepest, truest part of you. It is your beginning. It is something you already have, and therefore not “gettable”.

So, we are technically on a Quest for something we own; something we are. Maybe what's going on here is merely semantics. Perhaps we need a re-definition of Agape.

Agape feels like acceptance. It looks like peace. It is a recognition of your heart. Agape is comforting, inclusive and allowing. It gives permission. Agape unconditionally adores. Agape loves every nook and cranny of you.

Agape sees a mountain ahead and envisions only the wild trip downhill; feeling joy and anticipation. Agape notices the absence of a person or thing and wishes him, her or it a fond farewell; knowing that energy of any kind is not ever “gone” on this eternal ride. Then, Agape wonders who or what will show up next to fill the void. Life is like that always.

Agape greets you with a smile every time. There is no circumstance that will change Agape's joy at seeing you again. Harsh words, time or distance do not alter Agape. It is a force, and as such, unshakable.

We are so very much human. Our days are spent dealing with how we feel and look, what we “have to do”, who we are with and what they said or might say. Beneath all of that, we are the force of Agape – albeit unrecognized.

Agape doesn't take away the argument you just had or the hurt you may feel – it puts it in perspective. We are sourced from love, and clothed in ego.

For this coming week/Quest, we'll look at how to recognize Agape. It is everywhere. We've spent our lifetime looking at everything else, as if it was all that mattered. Billboards, apps and social media shout constantly. “Do you have this disease?” “Is he cheating on you?” “Do you want the perfect body?” “Are you happy/angry/active/beautiful enough?”

Your ego self can answer these questions yet none of these will ultimately satisfy you. The answers will not bring happiness, satisfaction or fulfillment that is lasting. Your ego self is not offended by these assumptions about you – but your sovereign self is. You are so much more than you know. Your sovereign self knows the core of you; recognizing that therein dwells all things of relevance.

We are on this Quest to draw out our Sovereign Self. He/she is found in the recognition of Agape in every facet of life. There is a great deal of NOISE we'll have to ignore to hear him or her. Yet she is there and he is waiting with open arms and giant grins. It is you.

You are the One you've been waiting for.
See you tomorrow.

When love hurts (or runs out)



Picture
This is a picture of what is posted on a billboard in front of a nearby church. I drive past it each morning on my way to work. What follows is an attempt at an answer.

Love doesn't (hurt). This pain is your own definition of love. In Persian, Greek and Sanskrit alone there are as many as 90 different words for love, each with its own definition. Any emotional “hurt” can be reduced to unmet expectations. Love has no expectations, qualifications or conditions. It is the physical expression of your core. You are made of love.

Love's purpose is not to make you happy or fill up your empty heart. You are here to take care of these things on your own. It's true, that some others of us bring these qualities out better or more-so than others of us; like babies, kittens, puppies and brand new lovers. It's not true that they bring the love to you – they merely show it to you, as in a reflection. You had the love all along, right there in your heart.

Here's the thing. No loved one, regardless of who they are, “makes you happy” or “hurts you”. You may not enjoy some of what this “other” is saying or doing and you aren't required to. It's your choice as to whether or not you continue to participate with them. You don't have to. If you choose to leave, be clear on your reasons for going. You may leave them behind, but your expectations will be securely packed.

This time we've begun is all about clarity. Who you are is sticking out all over the place. Hidden agendas are not only being exposed on a world stage. They are being played out in our most intimate relationships.

What you'll never know is your loved one's reasons for doing or saying anything. If your choice is to stay put, you'll want to do something to make the relationship comfortable. You cannot change anyone. What you can do is use the power of creation we've recently discovered.

Your thoughts, feelings and words are creative. Rather than reacting with them, intend with them. Any situation perceived as “hurtful” can be altered for you through positive intent.

As you approach your loved one; set an intention. Something like “I intend the highest, best and most loving interaction. I see us all leaving this place feeling honored, heard and complete. And so it is.” Use whatever words make sense. Be sure to leave out what you are hoping or wishing for and leave in what you know is authentic and pure.

You cannot make someone act in a specific way without manipulation. This is not game playing. This is love without judgment or alteration. Each person in the relationship is respected here. The most beneficial interaction is what you are creating now. The results may surprise you, and the element of “time” plays into when these results are apparent.

Hold on and keep intending. Allow and love and you'll see your intentions manifest in the most magical and unsuspecting ways. Through it all, love yourself without condition or hesitation. It is your reflection that will bounce back at you in every relationship.

You are the one you've been waiting for.

Hey Masters, Pay Attention!!!



You've come to understand the world is not as it has always seemed. In a very 3D way, many things you may have assumed were rock solid and of pure intent are in fact not solid at all. In many cases they are motivated by some form of self interest rather than altruistic goal.

By now, these things do not surprise you as it seems there has been revelation after revelation. No part of your institutional systems has been left untouched. Your very schools, the places where you dutifully send your precious offspring, are in more cases than not factories for a very specific type of mind programming. None of this was in your head or heart when you participated and yet you've been there and thus been privy to the intended message.

What will serve your highest intent, moving forward from here into a different world, is not cynicism and distrust but awareness, transparency and a deeper inspection of intent. In fact, you may not be in “favor” of how things have been controlled and operated on a global, national or corporate scale, but they are not worthy of your judgment. Here's why.

The energy of intent and focus is just that – energy. As such, it is creative, powerful and sacred. If you were operating in a fully conscious state, you'd not spend a nan o-second of it on a direction you were not fully supportive of. Where you send it becomes manifest in your days and seemingly a more “solid” aspect of this existence. Choose always what serves your highest good.

Seen this way, the “atrocities” and dark plans you are now aware of become tools for creative consciousness. You are, with each new report, able to more accurately discern which specifics you'd like to see in play. You are now fully equipped to create them.

Each moment is an opportunity for change on any scale – miniscule or global, as your moment by moment perception is all that drives “reality”. This is amazing news and brings to light the power you embody. It is never true that you are “stuck” in any circumstance. Only your belief makes it so. Repetitious belief is the basis for constant depression or sustained joy. Choose.

All of this may be news yet it is not new. Life has been created this way always, by your imagining of it. Once you've seen the possibility for alteration, it exists. Now it only takes furthering that vision with repetitive imaginings and expansive emotion.

The feeling of “yes” is growth producing and limitless; while “no” constricts, shuts down and limits. The very slightest shift of focus allows for either an alternative possibility or more of what you don't want. Constant vigilance!!!

This become not work, but play as you shape and mold your day to day with belief in a better way, a compassionate approach and a loving and beautiful force beneath each interaction. We see near instant manifestation these days so pay attention! Your greatest teacher is each outcome you are witnessing. Don't like it? Adjust and choose again.

Like a Master in any discipline, it takes practice, dedication and love of the craft. The outcome is you. Choose always love.

We are the Ones we've been waiting for.

Still Waking up...



Three years ago this video was produced. It's message is relevant and timely still today. We've come such a long distance since then. The lead up to and let down after 12.21.12 has changed all of us. We've perhaps been through anger and hope and depression and waiting, always there is the waiting.

There are still today a variety of versions of prophecies and prophets. Many dates have come and gone, along with their promises of prosperity, enlightenment, collapse or spaceships.

What was then and is today a constant – is you. Every answer,  and all value, healing, abundance and love is found in your very own soul. 

In 2011 these were the words we hoped “someone” would “make come true” for us, without completely understanding how that would happen. We know better now. 

“Time”, trial and error bring us back here at every turn. Home. 

We are the ones we've been waiting for.

We are One


This journey we are on, called life, is one of the most spectacular trips available.  The experience of physical existence has within it every possibility.  This planet is filled with over 7 billion humans – there are many who choose to visit here.



To be clear, all facets of this life are known as possibilities before birth.  There are no tricks played or secrets kept.  In full awareness we incarnate, happy for the chance to live again.


This talk of an “experiment” may have led you to think otherwise – to think that you’d been duped and your plan to be here at all was made under false pretenses.  This is not how it works.  Before being human, the “you” that is, knows every aspect it has ever been, as well as the aspects of others.  It is not possible to “hide” the truth of you.  Knowledge of each other comes with contact.



This inability to deceive creates every possibility for clear choices and transparent decisions.  This kind of clarity goes away from the human as we dive more deeply into this “reality”.  All of this is part of our plan.



The thing that humanity offers us by way of experience is emotion/passion.  This is not to say that other beings are void of emotion, because they are not.  Humanity holds within its makeup a deep well of passion and belief in the sanctity of life.  The way in which mankind expresses love and beauty and hope and hate is unique; beneath it lays an unwavering faith and trust that it’s meant to be fair. Despots and dictators arise because they know that belief exists and there exists a chance at manipulation and perceived “power” because of it.  They are here to “play” with that.



Potentials for all possible ends of the spectrum of control are exciting.  When not human, there are limits as to how much emotion/feeling will be a part of creation.  There is desire and personality always.  Yet the extremes of passion are possible only in a life while human.  This is the source of unparalleled heights and depths of feeling; a wealth of addictions.



We have labeled these “addictions” as negative and “work” to overcome them.  This is interesting because they are the whole reason we are here.  It may be more prudent to celebrate them!  They make up the most exciting parts of you!



When addictions are referred to here, it is not in the sense of chemical addictions only – the kinds that are ingested.  It is behaviors; those that stimulate the process to create the chemical for you.  These behaviors become habitual because they afford a sensation you crave.  That is addiction.



It could be any behavior at all, yet it will lead always to a familiar sensation.  The thrill of that sensation excites you and inspires a desire for more, as if it were a drug.  In fact it is, but not a drug we are taking, one we are making.  You will search for opportunities in your days to do it again and again.


Consciousness implies an awareness of these physical tendencies, acceptance for them as facets of the personality and an understanding that they are not “faults” but very human traits – one of the reasons for being human at all. They are not “bad”; they are part of the program.  It becomes a challenge to remove “you” out of the equation; everything here is taken personally.



The ability to love and live without judgment is the goal here.  In order to embody unconditional love you must understand every condition that is its opposite.  The exquisite feelings of love, the thrill of victory, the agony of defeat – each of these are addictions.  You will repeat them until every nuance is understood.  This has been the plan. 



Today it is widely understood that many of the reasons for the most violent extremes of these emotions – the hardships and challenges of human slavery – have been fabricated.  There are beings who possess intimate knowledge of the human psyche and have used it to manipulate man for their own addictions of power and worship.  You are at a point now, the ultimate point in the plan, where you have a choice.



What will you do?  How will you judge?  Will you judge? What is unacceptable to you?  What does freedom mean?  Is such a thing as punishment necessary or is Karma enough?  Will you seek revenge? 



This is the choice of mankind and what is done here will reverberate to every other life in all of creation.



If Oneness motivates the decision, there exists a possibility for compassion that until this moment did not exist.  The force and effect of cruelty and pain is felt in each heart.  It is there now that the possibility for unsurpassed acceptance rests – agape.  Now that you know the truth, the power to change all of creation rests in your hands.



The slave has come full circle.  Ownership is not possible; a sovereign being realizes its possibilities for expression – all of them.  Knowing what you are capable of and what has been done before – what will you choose now?  The results are in.  This was an experiment to reach for the light.  It is within your grasp.  What you do now changes everything.


You are the Ones we’ve been waiting for.


Check out the other pages on my new site!  In gratitude for all of you, I am gifting both a personal Mandala and a session this week!  Find the link on the home page for your chance to enter!  Much love and peace everyone...~~~

World Peace Day

Today we embody our power and speak as One. Embrace the globe with a single word – peace. Let peace birth your every thought and direct each movement. See our earth transformed. She is not a mess of countries and conflicts but One star, encircled by light. She is lit from within, gorgeous and luminous with our brilliance, the light of eternity, the radiance of One.
~Sophia

Love Quest Day 7

Good morning.  How perfect that our conclusion is reached on World Peace Day.  For self love is peace; Agape is that quiet within.  Once found, for however fleeting a moment, you know truth.  There is nothing to worry about.  You know where home is.  You know how to get there.

This was not supposed to be easy.  It was supposed to be formative.  We came here to grow, to evolve, to remember truth in the most dire of circumstances.  We are not thrown here, as if to the lions.  We arrive upright, excited and ready.  Remember that.  It will alleviate your self pity and righteous indignation.

We are One.  Today’s global meditation gives us a chance to consciously choose together.  We’re always choosing, and our united voice/choice is absolutely creative.  Yet on most days it’s diluted with 7 billion+ varieties of focus.  Not today.  The opportunity for creation today is astounding.

Alone we have this opportunity each and every moment.  The creative spark for our own lives does not require a match or global participation.  It requires intent.  A direction/focus that spans every interaction; one thought that moves with you through the “time” you experience.

For “time”, illusory as it is, becomes a powerfully creative substance in that where you spend most of it is who you become. We are associative beings.

There is truth in the idea that none of this is real.  Yet that truth requires the 60,000 foot point of view.  We are right here.  This life we love is created by our viewpoint.  I focus on yesterday’s disagreement and I feel pain, disappointment and guilt.  Each article and conversation I participate in, while allowing that focus to permeate my day, will contain some element of pain, disappointment or guilt.  This is how it works. What you do with the illusion of “time” becomes pivotal.

“Time” is a powerfully formative substance in that where you spend most of it is who you become.  Part of the last 7 days has been spent considering self-love.  This Quest is at an end.  I, like you, have been to life changing workshops and read transformative books that lost their power once I stopped going or reading.  The difference was where my head and my “time” were focused.

There is no magic Agape button.  Returning to “life as usual” will only be altered if your desire for joy and power, freedom and love, overrides your addiction to emotional trauma.  You’ll have to want it so badly that you are willing to continue trying for it, regardless of opposition.

This world isn’t currently set up for 7 billion+ sovereign beings; who stand sure and compassionate and unyielding.  Perhaps today, with the end of our Quest and a global voice speaking “Peace”, the preparations can begin.  It’ll take a gentle reminder: “love yourself”. It’ll take a constant intent: “love yourself”.  It’ll take a daily focus: “love yourself”.  It’ll take a new direction: “love yourself”.

To find Agape doesn’t mean you’ll be “right” every time; it means every time you’ll be love.  It’ll take effort and self discipline.  You are a way-shower.  Examples to follow are scarce.  Do not be afraid or discouraged.  This is why you came.  You are fully equipped.  All that you need is found in your heart.  I love you without condition or reservation.

We are the Ones we’ve been waiting for.

It’s been an honor to travel together.  Perhaps we can do so again on our next Quest, October 13th, 2014.  Look for your invite on Face book.  It the coming 3 weeks there will be more gifts (and my blog) found on the new website.  It is a month long celebration!  Please come and visit at www.sophialove.org.  Namaste’.


Enjoy a selection from my son, a composer.  Its description fits ours as well: “dramatic, uplifting, and epic”!

Love Quest Day 6


Hello!  Welcome to Saturday.  We’ve almost reached the end of this Quest.  We’ll finish on Sunday, which is technically the beginning of next week.  This is intentional and perfect as we are eternal and this journey is circular.  It never ends.

We will have another Quest on October 13th, 2014.  As Facebook does not allow for the addition of new dates, look for another event invite in a few weeks.  As we uncover self love, we discover beneath each layer is only more. 

There is not an end to love, a limit to how much you get to have or a time when your heart can’t take anymore.  More love is just, well, more.

I am not sure what draws you here but I know why I’m here.  Like you, I have a head full of aches and a heart full of broken things that I’d rather not be there.  It’s not that I think about them consciously, yet they protect/prevent me from full on exposure – sort of like a wet suit.

We can be, and we are actually, swimming in love without feeling it as deeply as is possible.  This protective suit has it all under control.

It feels risky to love without the suit.  Exposure has been known to create all sorts of damage.  Who, in their right mind, wants that?

Love is about the heart, not the mind.  Words and events that create pain, hurt because your thoughts say they hurt.  Your heart knows what’s true.  Nothing exponential is ever achieved without risk.  You’ll have to take off the suit.

You’ll never get the “full effect” with it on.  Now your head will come up with all sorts of reasons to keep covered.  In a logical and predictable and Newtonian world, they make sense.  We’ve moved beyond logical now.  We’ve inched ever so much closer to miraculous.

In your very depths is this huge capacity for compassion.  The most hideous and desperate are sacred there.  Every millimeter of you is faultless.  Deformity is not an option through lenses of love. Pain is not perceived by a pure heart.  How could it be that this “other” could hurt you?  This “other” is you.  Open your eyes and see yourself.

In all your anger and sadness, accusations and self pity, there rests just one truth.  This is the recognition of love.  Love is remembered, it is not found.  In your first moment, birthed from Source, love was all you knew.  Your glory lit the sky and we all gave thanks for your arrival.

Hidden beneath your fear of exposure is that brilliance from your beginning.  It peeks out the cracks in your armor and tells us we are the same.  We are bits of light, moments of love, armfuls of happy.  We are so much more than any logical, fearful thought.

Our time as human is limited.  None of us know how long we’ll be with each other.  Embrace the moment you know you share, this moment now, with both hands and let go.  Enjoy the ride.  Scream with joy, scream with fear if you must yet don’t let the possibility of pain stop you from taking this ride.  You are here together for a reason.  Your only chance at finding it is on the other end of control.

Free is the gift of Agape.  Self love opens all your closed doors and lets us in. 

You are the One we’ve been waiting for.

See you tomorrow.

Love Quest Day 5

It is our fifth day.  Love yourself.  It sounds like a simple thing, doesn’t it?  If it were, most of us would be there.  Like riding a bike.

We learned about bike riding and self love around the same time.  We were very young.  When learning both, there was this gentle period of acclimation where someone – mom, dad, big brother, big sister, uncle or aunt – held you until the right moment.  It was that moment when you were on your own.  Your balance, speed and success were each self determined.  You were heading out into the world – solo. 

What you gleaned from the lessons they gave very much decided how you approached both self love and bike riding.  Did they hold on a little too long out of fear?  Did they push you away too soon?  How they reflected both for you is evidenced in your style.  We are associative beings.  We watch, listen and decide for ourselves what will work.  Typically, we mimic.

It is time for a new approach.  We are all grown up now.  We no longer “need” to be held; although some days it feels like that.  On those days we comfort ourselves with any one of our addictions.  We may blame someone for cutting off our supply, self-medicate or decide to be stoic.  Each approach ends with a hollow spot.  This is not Agape (self-love).

It can be scary to decide to love anyway.  Despite what you may have learned from your elders or any internal objection – you are absolutely lovable.  There is no fear in self-love.  You don’t need make up, great abs or a large bank account.  Whatever you have right now is enough.  You hold a spark of eternity.  You are love embodied.  Today. 

There is no fault that separates you from being worthy of this love.  Its discovery is sort of like that moment when you realize no one is holding on to the bike (or to you) and you are moving on your own; shocking and thrilling all at once.  When it happened for me, I opened my mouth to yell with joy and a bug flew in.  Not what I expected and sort of gross.  I kept on riding.

The thing is, you can keep going with your mouth shut worried about the bug possibility or you can keep going screaming with joy anyway.  Both will get you there.  One way sounds like fun; the other sounds like work.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve got enough to do.  I’m not looking to give myself any more jobs.  Self-love is not something you have to earn.  It is free and equally available.  No one else is counting how much you take or worrying about you getting theirs.  No one is keeping score.  You are the only one who actually knows how much you’ve got.

Sometimes you see people and they arrive full out.  Nothing is missing with them and as a result they expect nothing from you.  They are not asking you to support their anxiety or fill up their empty spots.  They are present. Whether you like them or not, you can’t help but appreciate their lack of dependence.  It is refreshing.

Agape is not something that was on the to-do list of those who came before us.  If you were shown how to love yourself as a child, you are quite fortunate.  If not, doing so now will bring up all sorts of anxiety.  It will feel “wrong”.  It is not.  It is just different.

You are okay, all by yourself.  You are good enough to shower with love.  Treat yourself tenderly, this is new ground and you may want training wheels.  Go ahead, be good to yourself.  Give yourself whatever you need.  Smile.  This is one thing you have to do alone.  It is time. 

You are the One you’ve been waiting for.

See you tomorrow.
