Be Free


When we drop all our ego-created-delusions…we discover our true selves.

(Listen to my song “God’s Love Is All You Need” on YouTube by clicking HERE)


1 John 3:2

Beloved, we are God’s children now; what we shall be has not yet been revealed. We do know that when it is revealed we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.


The bible says that we are made in God’s image…each and every one of us (Genesis 1:27).

It also says that God is love (1 John 4:8).

So…at our very core…we, too, are love.

We find that hard to believe because, if you are like me, we don’t always feel that way.

We struggle.

We do things we aren’t proud of.

But there are those moments when…for no apparent reason…we experience deep compassion for another.

We might also experience deep compassion from someone else.

In those moments, all barriers and boundaries suddenly dissolve…and all there is…is love.

These are the times of True Presence when all there is…is now.

You can’t bottle it or claim it as a commodity.

It just is.

And it’s beautiful.

Why not practice being present to whomever and whatever is around you?

For God, or Love, is present always.
