Love Papa.

Yes, you know who you are.
You overworked, under-appreciated, detail oriented, micro managers!
Who want everything to be just right!
Not only for you but for everyone else as well.
Making sure that everyone is happy (and doing what they are supposed to be doing!)
Everyone has their instructions, directions, lunch bag and raincoat (just in case!)
Do you want the ultimate control?
Well then listen up................cause here is the biggest secret!
It’s not about ANYBODY else!
The only thing you have the actual ability to control is YOU!
And the only way to control yourself is through your heart!
If you listen to your own heart and follow what makes you feel good then everything and everybody else falls into place!
No amount of juggling, balancing, tap dancing or screaming can replace a few moments to focus on the feeling you desire.
When you gain control of yourself, you gain the ultimate control!
Suddenly you move from a high pressure time bomb, moving through life with a hair trigger,
To a peaceful ball of love, gliding through life with ease and grace!
I know you want the best for show them rather than tell or direct them!
You have the power to gain the ultimate control!
It just doesn’t exist outside of You!
Love Papa.

Love, Papa.

Explain the sound of a sunset
Describe the taste of rainfall
Smell the sound of thunder
Touch the morning mist
Simply close your eyes
And all becomes as one.
For YOU are the explanation
To the question never asked!
Love, Papa.

Love, Papa.

Grasp hold of your happiness.
That which is your birthright,
And release the haters to deal with their own!
For the burden that weighs you down
Does not belong to you
Rather to those who came before.
Who have long forgotten the reason why
And are left only to carry the load.
You are the hope, the strength and the destiny
As you break the bonds that hold you at bay
You release the future
To become what may.
For the example shown by you
Can become the belief for those who follow!
So grasp hold of your happiness
Draw it into your heart and believe.
For you were born worthy of this greatest of all gifts
And so you shall always remain!
Love, Papa.

Love, Papa.

When the smile in your heart
Matches your face in the mirror.
When the vision of your mind
Rests solidly in your hands.
And when the dream you’ve imagined
Spreads before you in reality.
Then shall you know contradiction.
For only through becoming, are the bindings of belief removed!
And you are set free.
Love, Papa.

Stand Still

Stand Still
Love, Papa.

Like a tree
Rooted in one place
Would that you could stand still
And let life occur in your presence.
Each moment a lifetime
With no tomorrows or yesterdays.
Yet the cycle remains
For that which you give unto this world
Is therefore given to you in return.
A fleeting experience
Contained within the stillness
Of life’s passing.

Love, Papa.

Love, Papa.

A stone cast upon another
In defence of innocence lost
Is not justification, rather blindness, at work!
For you cannot defend the defenceless,
Just because you think they are!
Stepping before God with your weapons drawn
To challenge the pathway taken
Leaves little doubt of the outcome!
Love, Papa.
