We spend our whole lives trying to seek love, to define and express love and hopefully to become love in the present moment. But turbulent times can turn us away from love and bring up our fears.  Fears change our actions and we have great difficulty forgiving those who harm us.  When we release our fears and anger and move our thoughts to connecting to the feelings of our heart, we begin to have the awareness that love is dwelling…always…in our heart.  Then forgiveness makes sense and all our senses respond in a new way to love.

All we have to do is tap into this loving energy, embrace and allow love to become the way of our being in our daily life.  This transformation into love consciousness is what each of us is here to do.  Michael Jackson understood about staying ‘in love’…with ourselves, with others, with nature and all the universe!  John Denver felt that love is an everlasting memory that shelters, embraces and at times is turbulent but love is in all the elements…it is everywhere and always there for us.

Love By Michael Jackson

“Love is a funny thing to describe. It’s so easy to feel and yet so slippery to talk about. It’s like a bar of soap in the bathtub-you have it in your hand until you hold on too tight.

Some people spend their lives looking for love outside themselves. They think they have to grasp it in order to have it. But love slips away like that wet bar of soap.

Holding on to love is not wrong, but you need to learn to hold it lightly, caressingly. Let it fly when it wants. When it’s allowed to be free, love is what makes life alive, joyful and new.  It’s the juice and energy that motivates my music, my dancing, everything.

As long as love is in my heart, it’s everywhere.”  from Dancing the Dream by Michael Jackson

 

John Denver – Perhaps Love…

John Denver also sought for the meaning love. One of my favourite songs about the meaning of love was sung by John Denver is “Perhaps Love”  This video show John performing in London where he explains the transformation that took place for him as his thoughts transformed from sadness to love and these words and music came to him while he was driving his car in California.

I hope you will take time to listen to his story and song~

 John Denver – Perhaps Love Lyrics
 
Perhaps love is like a resting place
A shelter from the storm
It exists to give you comfort
It is there to keep you warm
And in those times of trouble
When you are most alone
The memory of love will bring you home

 

Perhaps love is like a window
Perhaps an open door
It invites you to come closer
It wants to show you more
And even if you lose yourself
And don’t know what to do
The memory of love will see you through

Oh, love to some is like a cloud
To some as strong as steel
For some a way of living
For some a way to feel
And some say love is holding on
And some say letting go
And some say love is everything
And some say they don’t know

Perhaps love is like the ocean
Full of conflict, full of pain
Like a fire when it’s cold outside
Or thunder when it rains
If I should live forever
And all my dreams come true
My memories of love will be of you

Songwriters: J DENVER
Peacefully with love,
Jane

Spring Equinox Walk – Stillness in the Spring Morning

This morning I walked along Georgian Bay (part of the Great Lake Huron) but it did not look like spring had arrived. Instead I was treated to this wonderful view that looked like pyramids on the ice.  Everything was still as the water was frozen near the shoreline. But these wondrous formations fascinated me.  A lady who has lived in this area since a child said they were water spouts.  Sure enough as I looked carefully the center top of each ‘pyramid’ was open.  She said the water spouts out of the pyramids that she called ‘water spouts’.  No water was spouting this morning but I would love to see the water spouting out of them.

As I neared home, I saw some small green sprouts poking through the ground where the snow had melted.  Yes, spring had arrived!

I love Japanese Haiku poetry.  I wrote this one about the arrival of Spring.

By Jane Brown Robertson

May you soak up the feelings of stillness on this Spring Equinox. It is when we enter our stillness that we begin to experience feelings of renewal, hope and new beginnings that the energy of the light of the Spring Equinox brings.  The Equinox invites us to create balance and harmony and to move with the natural rhythms of the universe.  Take a few moments to meditate or reflect and allow your mind and heart to open to something new and allow it to grow.

May the radiant Spring blessings of light fill your heart with peace and warmth,

Peacefully,  Jane

IN SILENCE FRONT COVER sm

Meditation now provides me with a shelter of protection, a place of peace and the courage to see each day as a “beginning…”   The messages in this book are manifestations of my discoveries about love, daily life, nature’s teachers and the infinite beauty of our mysterious Universe.  It is in silence, the place of quiet stillness within, that I discover the truth of the loving essence of the Divine Spirit that begins to merge with my inner self and then becomes reflected in each moment of my life.   It is in the experience of Divine Union of Oneness that  leads me from seeking for “something” to just “being”.  From this space, I am accepting and feel blessed for all my experiences and look forward to new adventures and the unknown.”  From In Silence, Discovering Self through Meditation, by Jane Rosalea Booth

Ten years later….

I wrote those words 10 years ago and they still ring true for me. I am still on a life journey of knowing my ‘self’ and shedding ways and habits that do not resonate with my inner self’s call to be loving and peaceful in each moment.  Still a challenge at times!  But in the past 10 years I have become more aware of those ‘experiences’ of my life that still hold wisdom and guidance to assist me through my next 10 years if I take the time for reflection and for letting go of past hurts or regrets.

I am looking forward to ‘new adventures’.  I am growing each day in greater trust that my life will unfold in mysterious ways, wonderful ways, greater ways than I can ever imagine!  It is this ‘unknown’ factor about life that keeps us moving forward even in our elder years if we stay open, flexible and never lose our curiosity about what life is all about.

In silence, in meditation, I discover my soul essence, my soul voice, my connection to all life, all spirit and all the love that permeates through the universe.  I open to the cosmic universal rhythms when I dance, sing, write poetry, walk by the water and woods or meditate.  I feel a deep purpose for my ‘being’ here in this moment.

I still meditate on the messages in my book, In Silence, Discovering Self through Meditation and receive new insights.  I am not the same person as I was ten years ago but what amazes me is how the words from my meditations have even greater richness and meaning for me now!  So I encourage you to write down your thoughts or ‘messages’ you receive after you meditate.  In my book, I share with you how to meditate and to manifest the life you desire!  Discover tools and insights to expand your views, to age well and to live with an open and accessible heart in the most challenging of times.

Peacefully Jane

Dear Friends,

I invite you to a workshop series called “Conscious Aging”that is truly transformative for those who are willing to discover a new view of aging.  It will give you the ways and practices you need for happiness and contentment as you age. There is a positive way and vision that can change your life!  Enjoy a relaxed setting where we share in conversations with others, enjoy inspirations for reflection from articles, music, poetry and other creative activities.

I learned so much about aging from the Conscious Aging program. I discovered some of my limiting views of aging that I could change. Now, I can move through my aging process with greater ease and comfort with less fear and anxiety. I am excited about sharing this program with you.  It has changed my view of aging from seeing the media view of aging as downward slope to an enriching time with freedom and a time to enjoy what has heart and meaning to me.

Join me this fall for a new series beginning Oct.6/16 !  Register today! Please visit Conscious Aging website for more details about the program series.

2015-02-16 13.58.23I have been thinking about the term ‘aging consciously’  I immediately thought of elder people as I now fit into that group.  Elder consciousness is important as we can form new and positive ways to live that bring joy into our lives.  Elders do not have to move into an old person’s mold where there are no choices.  Yes, our bodies and health changes and bring challenges, but life can have vibrancy and buoyance that lifts and sustains us. The key is finding ways to lift our spirits and to be conscious that each of us has purpose at every age.

Awakening our elder consciousness brings a sense of freedom.  It is a time to connect to nature and to see the beauty.  This awakening allows us to clear out old beliefs and thoughts that are not working towards creating a peaceful way and can lead us into clarity and new purpose in our elder years.

As baby boomers age, we bring a new wave of consciousness into the elder years.  We are still playing our 60’s music,  calling for social change and justice and many are creating peace…in their hearts.  This heart consciousness is what will shift the ‘elders’ into a time of honouring our life in the present moment and a releasing of all the trauma and baggage of yesteryears.

No matter what our age, we all have a role in this changing consciousness that reveals the love that is within each of us. For young people, revealing their heart consciousness will continue and expand the universal awakening that is happening on so many levels.  Realizing the importance on intergenerational relationships will bring compassion, understanding, trust and love.  Elders can show a new way and freshness to their journey.   Adults can provide knowledge, stability and courage to allow changes to take place. Young people can bring wisdom, passion and creativity to make truly create a world of peace.

There are many tools and ways to awaken our consciousness at any age.  Life is an ongoing process with a flow with ups and downs.  Our life journey is about how we create and use the tools that are always present for us so we evolve as peacemakers and allow our unique potential to unfold.

I look forward to sharing each week ‘tools of self-discovery” at my Peaceful Way Gatherings on Wednesday afternoons in Meaford, On.   Receive mutual support, guidance, renewal and valuable practices and processes to support you creating your ‘way’.   I look forward to your participation.
