Let Go and Live


The blueprint of Love is in the essence of all that is.

Luke 13:18-19

Then he said, “What is the kingdom of God like? To what can I compare it? It is like a mustard seed that a person took and planted in the garden. When it was fully grown, it became a large bush and ‘the birds of the sky dwelt in its branches.'”


There is something beautiful happening…unbeknownst to many who are lost in the rat race of the world.

Like a tiny mustard seed sprouting unnoticed…the kingdom of God is growing in our midst.

Make no mistake…it is growing.

An eternal Love is the catalyst.

Some people are tending to this growth…choosing to nourish the seed by being consciously present to it. These are the people who are loving God and their neighbor as themselves. These are the people living the Beatitudes (Matthew 5:3-12).

In today’s scripture verse above, Jesus is again making it clear that the kingdom of God begins in the here and now…not in some future heaven.

We each can cultivate the growth of God’s kingdom through acts of forgiveness, mercy and compassion this very day.

Receive God’s unconditional love…allow it to change you…then pass it along.

Like the mustard seed…you must surrender a static life in order to be transformed and grow.

Say “yes” to participating in Love’s flourishing.
