WHAT IF 

all our thoughts 

were loving? . . . 

 

consider the possibility

When you turn on the light darkness disappears. As we align with our inner light we experience the harmony of connection to all that is.


Next 100 Days of Love | Day 23 | Shine Baby Shine

Shine your light and watch the world ignite in possibilities.

Affirm It | Day 23

I move easily through my daily list of things to do.



May you develop a Cha Cha in your step and a Rumba in your heart carrying you through whatever might appear to darken your door.

Love, Mel

Electricity is what flows through our heart beat igniting our expansion 💖✨


Together we are stronger. An idea shared grows in power and scale. There is nothing more powerful than an agreement between two people. It is past time we operationalize and align our systems in loving principles. There have been sooooo many decisions co-created with fear. Enough. Truly, enough. Let's allow our loving to lead the way as It falls upon each of us to recognize and remember our inner power. To offer our loving in this moment and the next. This loving movement is where change and transformation and healing occurs. This beat of the heart is when we change, grow and expand. When we considers the possibility there is another way. A way for a shift, a choice. In this moment, where grace flourishes and we connect with each other and all that is. Any love movement begins with a choice. 'Are we going to see a situation as loving and recognize or is the situation a call for more love. When we say 'I choose love.' We remember we are powerful beyond measure to co-create our reality. We are open to receive inspiration and, empowered to take loving action,' In essence, a love movement is the embodiment and demonstration of earth medicine, that regardless of any unacceptable behaviors pervading our social systems, how we feel, we take loving action. We are here for each other, we are all connected, we are our neighbor.


We are in a major transformation. Many folks saw the video of tanks and troops marching through neighborhoods and attacking folks on their front porches wondering 'What is this? Are we in America or the Middle East? How is it possible that this is the way we honor our neighbors and care and support our communities. It is eye popping and is not the first time I've seen it, and it is BS. Grateful to how many folks are seeing this and recognizing it is not okay. This tank and troops is not a movie. It is real, it is an asleep at the wheel example of how far we've gone off track. WE DO NOT NEED TANKS ON OUR STREETS. This is an idol of fear and promotes the last thing the planet needs. Love rules our streets and when we say "Whose Streets" the response is 'our streets.' We collectively pay for, contribute to and own the streets and are stakeholders in what happens on them.


Mels' 'I am here for love' is a declaration and a prayer to remember the necessary work of our time to decode what we are witnessing with love. Every "I AM" statement is a way through, reflecting change, always evolving different one day to another.


Please consider the possibility there is another way. Please ask yourself what love would do. Please join me in stating what you stand for and how you want to participate in this great turning we are experiencing together where we let love lead the way. When you can love everyone, including yourself the world is a celebration of our interconnection to all that is.


Love, Mel





Melanie Lutz is a writer/filmmaker/love activist's in addition to her loving works, a docu-series based on her book, Mels Love Land: What if All Our Thoughts Were Loving? will be available end of 2020/2021 for all the collective lovers out there.



While the world realigns with love, Day 3 of Mels Love Land's NEXT 100 of love takes the turn into integrating the ups and downs, rights and lefts and witnessing all the balance, support and care available with space for difference and grace. Remember you are always loved, you are never alone and you are safe.


Each cycle brings some new opportunities and is a work in progress throughout. The circle of love and possibility is open


Our way into this process is prayer and listening and allowing the possibility that everything you are thinking if it is not with love is not true.


Consider the Possibility There is Another Way


Opening Prayer




Use me. Work through me. Light the way ahead. Bring me peace. Bring me joy. Bring me what you think I need. Guide me with grace to the people, places and things that will support my soul’s purpose. Allow me the wisdom to experience and receive all that is meant for my unfoldment. May I listen with ears to hear and eyes to see. May every decision I make be at the center of my well being. May it be as it always was.

In love.




NEXT 100 | DAY 3 | SEEK TO BE STILL


Today in the love workshop, Mel talks about stillness, introduces the concept of Love Activism and connects with Virago's first song in her 90 days of music, Bob Marley's Natural Mystic from her perch in Panama.


Take a moment to go inward, opening to a vision of your life as yet unexperienced, a vision for something born of pure wisdom of one who knows nothing, a vision that awaits the simple, quiet act of becoming absolutely still in the complete presence of love. Seek only to find perfect stillness, remaining in quiet gratitude. Let everything reveal itself exactly as it is exercising your inner musculature of not doing, not questioning -- and just being. Affirm It   I have a beautiful vision for my life. Wisdom Teaching  Don't wait for permission to express yourself, your inner power, your voice. Now is always the time. Our soul's code revels in the fullest expression of our brave heart. As we recognize the perfect presence within ourselves the purest medicine pours from us as our loving offering to the world in an unending interconnected chain of grace. Sharing from this place of perfect stillness aligns us with our sacred purpose. Soul Quotes "Long ago the greek philosopher Heraclitus argued justice emerges from strife of opposites and Hegel, in modern philosophy preached a doctrine of growth through struggle. It is both historically and biologically true, 'there can be no birth and growth without birth and growing pains.'" - Martin Luther King, Jr Notes from the Land of Gandhi “The soul sits at the center of the heart, as though in a house.”  Twelfth century Christian mystic, Hildegard of Bingen If You Seek Peace, be still. If you Seek Wisdom, be silent. If you Seek Love, be yourself. ---Becca Lee For Your Consideration Love Actions:
