It is my hope that you give to yourself more than you give to others so that when others need you, you have more than enough to give. It is my hope that when you get angry with someone that you stop and realize that it has nothing to do with them, it's all inside you. It is my hope that you can take a step back and see how perfect life truly is and that if you are experiencing any so-called "hard times" that you can see your circumstance as a wonderful gift from the Universe to rise to the challenge.
It is my hope that no matter where you are that you find a piece of true happiness today and hold on to it the other 364 days of the year. It is my hope today that all of you know that when there is darkness around you it's up to YOU to shine and be the light - no one else is going to do it. I'm so very grateful for the opportunity to be able to have a dialogue with all my Daily Lovers; you're attention is the greatest gift of all! Season's greetings and bless you!

My Humble Epistle
By Mastin Kipp
June 21st, 2006
I consider it to be a miracle that no matter where I go or who I encounter, that I do not spontaneously burst into non-existence nor do I lose any of my skill, wit, good looks, abilities or agility when I am thrown into a new and strange land.I find it humbling that I can start something, and if I walk away from it, trust and know that it will not disintegrate or stop just because there is a lack of my physical presence.
This goes for any relationship I have developed, the company I started, my writing, the bodywork I've done to lose weight, or any creative or life endeavor I might choose to embark upon. I can do whatever I want, and the fear of losing something by means of abandonment is merely and mostly an illusion.
My whole life I have thought that if I stop paying attention, if I take my eye off of something that it will disappear. But indeed it does not. It grows stronger; I have more appreciation for the people, events and objects that fill my life. I desire to seek out new knowledge with the understanding that doing so will not undo all of the work and learning I have done so far.
All of this is a wonderful leap of faith that I can do that which makes me happy free from the fear of losing that which I have already attained. And in fact, what will most likely happen is that in the pursuit of my dreams and my goals, in the wake of my actions, my life will become more full instead of more empty. Abandonment is an illusion if the seeds of fulfillment and unconditional love are sown.
It is in finding a center, knowing myself, that I can take leaps of faith. Knowing that nothing of the physical world, even my mortal death could take that center away from me. The eternal in each of us cannot be destroyed.My center, my soul, my spirit will always be there. To be in constant contact with that source is to not only know myself, but to know the Divine - it is that knowing, that energy that allows every leap of faith, idea, thought and desire to be manifested in my life if I so choose it to be.
It is that center that gives me the visions of the abundance and balance I seek, and it is that center that communicates with the source of the whole in order to give me guidance of what actions I should take in order to fulfill my birth right of abundance and balance.
This goes for all of us. This is our birthright, our duty to fulfill. I am a mere channel for this understanding. The 'I' that I refer to in this epistle is the I of the Eye, from which nothing hides and resides in us all.And for me, this humble little speck in a vast Universe of mystery, this realization is the greatest Gift of all.

Please forgive me; I really try to stay out of politics and keep The Daily Love as unified as possible. But I am so moved by what has happened last night that I would be betraying my very soul if I did not write the following letter and share it with you. We have witnessed history on an epic scale that will change the world as we know it. This is an incredible moment to be alive. When I was at Obama HQ at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Beverly Hills last night I witnessed so many people, perfect strangers, come together, take action and unite for something I thought everyone had forgotten about. For the first time in my life, I didn't feel so alone. Standing in this crowd, for the first time I felt truly proud to be an American. I knew I'd wake up the next day to a world full of new possibilities and that what was once only a distant dream is now a concrete reality. I've been so moved by the energy of the results of this election that I cannot silence my enthusiasm.
Yes We Did!
Today is an amazing day in history and a great day in America. It's not about Republican or Democrat; this is about a psychic shift that has happened in our country. This is not about race or creed; it's about the fundamental choice - of choosing Hope over Fear. We have witnessed a historic event, something we will be talking about for the rest of our days, and when we speak to our children and grandchildren, we can tell them, "We were there..."
We were there the day we proved that the American dream is alive and well. We were there when we stood up to the status quo and took back our country from those who promote the division of "us" and "them" and ran on a platform of fear and empty promises. We were there when the first African American was elected President of the United States of America. We were there when the phrase "Yes we can" transformed into "Yes we did".
This election is a macro example of what has been happening on a micro level in each of our lives for a long time now. We made this happen. What happened last night represents a fundamental psychic shift in America that will have a massive effect in all aspects of our experience. Things that were before impossible are now possible. Tremendous change is coming. We want to feel good, we want to believe that the good guys do win, we want to come together as one people celebrating all of our diversity, we want to believe that anything that we set our minds to is possible and that we as a people do have the power to change our life by conscious choice and action.
That's what it's about, action. To create change, we must take action. Are there things in your life that you are fed up with, things you wish you could change but think you can't? Yes you can! Stand up, ride this wave of energy and make the impossible possible in your life. Take steps with hope in your heart, faith in your mind and love in your soul. Intention + action = results.
Anything is possible. Once you believe it, then you will see it. The time is now. Let's get to work.
What a moment to be alive.

The edge is certain death
The edge is inevitable
When all else falls away
The edge is what's left
So go to the edge
The brink of disaster
Step a little closer now
Poor child, what's the matter?
The edge is your friend
But a foe in disguise
It's at the edge's end
Where you'll finally come alive
The edge is getting closer now
The edge it is neigh
The edge is before me
I'm pretty sure I'm gunna die
The edge it's here now
Right before my very eyes
And right before certain death
I've learned how to fly!
Today I awake to start my journey all over again. I understand that I willmost likely face both inner and outer adversaries and tests which willchallenge me on the path to my Happiness. I accept that these challenges arenecessary for the development of my Highest Potential and that they are actuallya gift from the Universe, even if I can't see it right now.
I am grateful for the friends and assistance I have along the way, andacknowledge that they too are gifts from the Universe. I cannot do thisalone so I consider all of those who I come into contact with, evenperceived enemies, as allies. For we are all one in Spirit and here to helpeach other develop dormant parts of ourselves; and sometimes the only way togrow is through overcoming adversity.
The choices I make today will be for my best interest, and I will put myfaith and self-esteem to the test by choosing to do the things which will require action and courage.
I will conquer one more fear today so that when this day is over, I will beone day wiser and my heart will be one day closer to being open to Love.
There is no one else like me in the whole world, so I step forward into thisday fully accepting and loving whatever may come and am grateful for theopportunity to be exactly who I am.
I am the calm beneath the chaos of your mind
And speak only in whispers
Let go and feel with all your heart if you want to touch Me
I cannot feel you
If you are afraid to feel me
See Me in the most unfavorable of circumstances
I do not show myself
Where you already feel comfort
Stop and smell how beautiful life is in every circumstance
My fragrance can only please you
If you are looking for it
Taste Me even when you have nothing to eat
For I alone can sustain you
Through whatever may come
Look off the beaten path to find me
For I do not dwell in the terrain that is already known
I am the subtle behind the obvious
And the peace beyond the chaos
I am the bringer of all things
And the doer of all deeds
I am the wind at your back
And the light of your soul
I am the love that’s within you
And the love that’s trying to find you
I’ll give you all your hearts desire
All you have to do
Is let me in
Be brave and see what happens
I’ll be waiting for you to begin

I got a glimpse of my own humanity today, I am beginning to understand the limits of this human body, including how much time is left for me on this planet.
I stand here in love, abundance, joy and patience awaiting your quiet whispers.
I get out of my own way and surrender my will to yours, oh my Great Beloved, so let's get to work!

So many times things have happened to me and I've thought, "I'm a good person, why me?" Tonight, it really hit me that things that are perceived as "bad" aren't bad at all - they simply just "are". The only thing that is "bad" is my interpretation of the given situation or circumstance. This means, that everything and anything happening doesn't really have any meaning, other than what I bring to it.
I'm paraphrasing, but Joe Campbell once said something like "The only meaning of Life is what we bring to it and that we aren't looking so much for the meaning of Life as we are the experience of being alive."
What I think he means is that this Universe is a blank canvas eagerly awaiting your perceptions. Whatever colors and strokes you choose to paint with will be replicated exactly. Whatever perception or experience you're holding onto, the Universe will provide exactly.
While this is petty simple concept, I suppose, the ramifications are kind of staggering. Think of it like this... In this world, this life - there is just a bunch of stuff "out there" in this existence we perceive as "life". All of it is just a bunch of really small particles organized in such a way that we give each object a different name - "car", "apple", "girlfriend", "President", "good", "bad". But really it's just a bunch of stuff. An apple is only an apple if all of us agree together that a certain arrangement of "stuff" is called an apple - the same thing could be said about anything else in life.
Everything in this life is made up of "stuff" with a collective, albeit mostly subconscious agreement that a certain "way" or "system" is the way "it is". But really, it isn't a certain way, things just "are" and we all agree on a mutual perception of "what is". This is exciting to me. It means that all of us have to power to create our own perception or belief of "what is" and bring our own meaning to it. It means that nothing is ever set in stone and that the future can bring about immense change for the better and a world that we could of never imagined with an old way of thinking. It's up to us, right now.
It's all about believing first, then seeing. A belief creates a thing, and not the other way around...
So, what do you want to believe? Do you want to believe in Love or Fear? The choice and experience that follows is totally yours.
In the words of the great knight from Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, "Choose, but choose wisely." The life you choose to believe and hence experience depends on it!

The scene is set, where do we go from here? It's an exciting new time with new players, new energy and respect. Validation for something I co-created... Everything is happening as I knew it would, but the timing is in the hands of the Universe.
Of all the thoughts and possible things I can say, it all boils down to this - its all happening the way Your divine whispers have told me it would, so I'm not surprised at the least - but my monkey brain is in awe of your power - how do You do this? I'll never know... So all I can say is thank You. You are great, all things are done through You. I am here to serve, no matter what that means! Here's to this life-long partnership. You delivered today, as always, right on time, right on schedule in an even better form than I could imagine.
Thank You, thank You so much.
All my love,
