Happy full moony in Virgo
For many years I have been encouraging myself and others in choosing more Love, Light, and ease. Sometimes that has meant making hard choices, sometimes uncomfortable ones, sometimes lots of them. In these moments, and lots of others, I have affirmed how strong and brave I am.
May today’s post serve as a gentle reminder of how strong, and brave- or if you mash the two words together, how ‘strave’ you are.
And may kittypuppet encourage your day to unfold with ease and joy.
You deserve to feel how unconditionally Loved, Loveable, and Loving you are.
Love is pretty awesome, and pretty diverse.
For a long while, my fascination with love has lead me to explore lots of different actions, languages, expressions, and ceremonies of love.
I have learned about lots of different kinds of love; parental love, romantic love, sibling love, and pet love, to name only a few. And of course not just people can be loved, it is also possible to love nature, music, cities, and countless material things, like food.
I sense there may be a benefit, for the purpose of this post, in acknowledging two main kinds of love.
What if there is natural love, the kind of love I write with a lower case ‘l’. This kind of love is created by people, it can be very nurturing, and contributive, and can also include errors, inconsistencies, incongruities, and conflict, like human beings themselves. This love involves the depths of the material mind, the intellect, and is sometimes practiced as conditional love, that can be withdrawn if the conditions are not met.
And what if there is also Divine Love, the kind of Love I write with an upper case “L”. Love that was created by Divine, and shared with people only if they earnestly seek it, as even Divine does not interfere with a human being’s sovereign choice. What if this Love is infinite and is not prone to the errors, incongruities, and conditions of humanity, as it is not created by humanity.This kind of Love is expansive, infinite, and unconditional. This Love engages with a being on all levels, with the body, mind, heart, emotions and also with the essence of a being, at the Spirit, or Soul level.
No matter which love you find yourself most connected with, choosing love, and practicing love are enormous, and expansive contributions to the individual, to the greater population, and to the planet and universe as well.
Love is for everyone, and everyone deserves the freedom to choose to be, and receive the Love they long to Be, and receive.
Below is a video of Kitty puppet, talking about his favourite kind of Love.
I have been writing and leaving Love notes; words of acknowledgement, and gratitude, on my travels for more than 20 years. This joyful practice has inspired an interactive art instillation.
Starting on January 2nd, 2020, Township Coffee, located at 4343 Tyndall Road, in beautiful Victoria, BC, Canada, will be hosting an interactive art installation titled Love unites all.

I think we have all heard the adage: “it is better to give than to receive”
The thing about not receiving is, that when I am not willing to receive, I am obstructing my creations. When I am not willing to acknowledge my creations, I nullify me, and take me out of the equation, negating my potency, limiting me, my joy, and my choice. I have done lots of this, and I don’t like it very much.
I am learning that when I am more willing to give, than receive, I am messing with Divine design. There are so many examples in nature of how receiving as we give nourishes all, and allows sustainability, grace, and joy in the process. For example, the human heart is equipped with self-nourishing vessels that, with every body-nourishing contraction of the heart, send some of the heart’s very best work, richly oxygenated blood, into the heart-tissue itself, nourishing it, and clearing waste, enabling it to keep nourishing all of the other tissues, without breaks, for a lifetime. That is a bad-assed brilliant design. When a heart’s self-nourishing vessels are obstructed, it is a four-alarm fire, a real emergency, and often includes a heart-attack. What would I possibly have to gain by obstructing my receiving?
I have also noticed how challenging it can be to receive acknowledgement from someone else. It has sometimes seemed more polite to brush off a compliment with a glib comment, or by minimizing myself, or the creation, or contribution being acknowledged. It is, after all, shameful to be full of pride, and acknowledging my creations and contributions will surely lead me astray! Wait. Now that I have written that, and seen it written, it is so clear to me how full of caca and self-minimizing nonesense it is.
It seems possible that I will be only be more of me, when I acknowledge me, in total allowance of me, and choose true caring for me. And, I am often amazed at how much practice it takes for me to choose true caring for me with consistency.
I am certain that if I want to be all of the contribution I am here to be, I am going going to need to learn to receive, perceive, be, and actually choose true caring for me, in total allowance of me. It will be vital to receive me, in total allowance of all I truly Be, and acknowledge, and appreciate the being I Be, to be all the Love I can Be.
How much Love, and abundance, and nurturance have I been refusing with the judgement and limitation of me, I’ve been choosing? Would I be willing to release that practice, and choose something different?
This poem by Charles Wright, is a beautiful reminder for me, in a time when I feel inspired and nourished to let go of patterns that no longer serve me, and release resistance, and obstructions to Light and Harmony in a way that feels complete, and Loving.
“Knot by knot I untie myself from the past
And let it rise away from me like a balloon.
What a small thing it becomes.
What a bright tweak at the vanishing point, blue on blue.”
Thank you for the rad poem, Charles Wright.
I am creating a reminder to myself that what is challenging now, will not always be this way, and that I regularly enjoy the results of letting go, and choosing something new. Onward and upward.
Happy new mooon in Gemini

What if, you are more Loved, and cherished, than you ever imagined possible?
What could you choose, and create from the place of Being, Loved, Loveable, and Loving, beyond your wildest imaginings?
