Happy Valentine’s, dearest larvae

Valentine’s Day –  a day to think about LOVE.      So why the “larvae”?  Allow me to backtrack for a second….

Love is seen and felt when we connect, when we are reminded of the Greatness in us.

I don’t believe it is Given, as much as it is Reflected, Shown, or Focused upon.

soon to be a Swallowtail butterfly…

 

When someone does something loving, they are not giving Love – they are only doing something that Allows someone else to Focus on the “Love” that is already inside us.

 

 

Those feelings of Greatness, of Love, of being True to who you are-  THOSE are the feelings that are continually attracting us, are beckoning us to become MORE of that.  It just feels “right”.   It pulls you to advance into something more.   Now- here comes the larvae!

When we do what comes naturally, we feel great. We feel Love, Ease and Creative.  We feel Growth. We feel the expansion of becoming more.  We want to be a better husband, or wife, or friend.  We find a way to do it.  We want to continue growing. The larvae wants to become the incredible swallowtail butterfly,  the sick cell wants to become a healthier cell, the divided want to become one, and Evolution continues to expand….

Even when the Physical cells stop working,  LOVE becomes more. It becomes More Energy.    As The Beatles sang –  “I don’t know why you say Good Bye, I say Hello, Hello, Hello”     A New energy form or connection, a new form of Love- wants to say Hello.  “Good-bye” is just what the old larvae says, or physical body says. Good- bye is what the old relationship says, as it evolves into something better.

Open yourself to LOVE, it’s everywhere and has great Momentum. Continue to say “Hello” to the greatest energies that surround us. LOVE.

Look for it. Feel it. Radiate it. It’s there, just connect.  Become that magnificent butterfly you are intended to become.

 

Relax and suck it up

One of my favorite things as a kid was using crazy straws. Remember those?

No matter what drink it was, stick a crazy straw in it and it instantly became fun.   Ah, life before the internet…

crazy straw

Are you still using one daily?  NO?  Maybe we should, they have so much to teach us.  Crazy straws want to remind us:

  1. BE AWARE -Don’t use yesterday’s straw!!    Don’t let yesterday’s straw ruin or taint today’s drink!  Yesterday’s (or last year’s) residue will only ruin a perfectly great, new daily flavor!   Don’t waste your time trying to clean it all out thinking about how it got gunked up –  just get a new one every morning when you wake up!   New day = New flavor
  2. Sometimes it’s going up, sometimes down, sometimes even sideways, and sometimes you can’t even see where or what direction it’s going, don’t sweat it. AND DON’T QUIT!  That’s life. It’s all in line with a bigger plan. It’ll arrive.
  3.  Decide what YOU want to drink before you settle on something that someone else just offers you.  Once you start drawing or sucking it, you’ll get it- but by then it’s too late to change flavors, to say “Woops, I didn’t really want that!”  What are you dunking your straw into today?
  4. Don’t compare your drink and how quickly you’re getting it, with anyone else!  Find your own speed that’s comfortable, you don’t want to pass out, or drink too quickly, you don’t want a Brain Freeze after all!

Keep your momentum going and you’ll get Whatever YOU DECIDE to drink.  First thing in the Morning, get yourself a NEW straw for your life, and stick it into something clean and nourishing like Universal Goodness, Love, Peace, Happy Thoughts and Knowing that whatever you draw in today, will be best for you.

My deepest wish for you my friend is that you enjoy your drinking of Life. Enjoy all the loops you’ll take.   KNOW that it’s All Good, even when you seem to be going up, down, sideways, or loopty loops.    No doubt, the upcoming year will provide all those choices.

Here’s a little secret for you– the drink never really ends anyway, so don’t worry about it.  ENJOY.
