Love Flavors Everything

This past Sunday, I was attending services at Circle of Miracles, an interfaith community in Doylestown, PA.  There I was surrounded by loving kindred spirits as we listened with rapt attention to my friend David Young share his sparks of soul wisdom with the capacity crowd.  David is a musician whose work spans a few decades and I had profiled him a few weeks ago in this Bliss Blog.

Today he was sharing about the idea of really loving what you do as a method of giving something all you’ve got.  He was describing a performance he did at a post 9/11 event.  Ray Charles was the headliner.  Prior to his own sound check, he was watching Ray do his.  Rather than going through the motions and saving his energy for the concert, Ray was movin’ and shakin’, giving it all he had.  This prompted David to ask Ray’s manager the reason for that dynamic activity. The profound answer?  “No one loves Ray’s music more than Ray.”  When you love something, you give it all you’ve got.

Last week, I met a woman named Cynthia Goch who wrote a cook book called “MaMa Mia Cucina” ~A Flavor of Good Food and Good Family” She shared that the primary ingredient in the meals she prepares, is love.  It spices and entices. You can tell when someone REALLY has their heart in their cooking. It just tastes better.

The same thing is true with my writing.  Because I love it so much, I can’t NOT write. It is my Beloved in paper form. It isn’t just what I do, it is in inicstricable part of who I am as a total being…body, mind, spirit, heart. I can tell that there is love in it, when I can re-read something I wrote years earlier and say to myself  ” Who wrote this?” because I truly resonate with the message I am sharing, without judgement and attachment.  I can disengage from full ownership of it, feeling at times that I am what I have referred to as “God’s Typist” and I am taking dictation. It is a gift I was offered by my own Creator that I willingly share, because after all, what greater gift to myself to allow what I love to first flow through me out into the world?

    Dear Edie,
    I am truly honored ~ thank you!
    Love really does make the world go-round,
    as we stand, united.
    Without it, we are nothing…
    From the passionate places in our hearts –
    be it writing, food, people or whatever
    makes us ‘sing’ in being the best
    of who we are and living the abundant life
    we were meant to live.
    Much Love and Many Blessings,
    Cynthia
