This experience harkens back a few years, but it is every bit as timely today as it was

then; a journal entry of sorts…


“I received an email from my friend Peter Moses a few weeks ago, as part of a

request to  forward a press release for a fundraiser for an organization we are both

part of, called Rubye’s Kids that creates a holiday party and other gatherings

throughout the year for inner city Philly kids. Emotional marshmallow that I am, I

cried when I read it:



Thanks, as always, for spreading the Love (your real fulltime job:)” and then it

occurred to me that there really is no more important job in the world than that. The

cool thing is, we all applied for it at birth and whether we know it or not, we are on

the payroll, and the job description might look something like this:


smiling at strangers


cleaning up after yourself (physically and emotionally), or at least not expecting

anyone else to clean up after you


offering a supportive ear, an open heart or shoulder to cry on


unconditional positive regard


seeing and honoring the highest in yourself and each other (the meaning of the


Sanskrit word ‘namaste’)


listening with the ears of the heart (not second guessing what someone else will say

or formulating your response)


being both a generous giver and gracious receiver


allowing others to grow from their experiences without rescuing, fixing or saving


sharing the best of who you are


living with compassion, both toward yourself and others


being trustworthy and in integrity


finding ways to make someone’s day


being fully present with whoever is presented to you


offering hugs, knowing that they are heart to heart resuscitation


facing each day with wonder and anticipation


I’ve been authorized by the Boss (no, not Bruce Springsteen:)…you know


the Big Boss to offer you these bonuses that come along with the job:



Know that there is no where you can go, where love won’t follow

Adore the person in the mirror, who is really embodied love

Let yourself be fully seen

Unbridle your creativity, let it run free

Treasure your dreams

Cradle yourself

Be your bliss

Swim in your deepest passions

Cry (my friend Dianea is a therapist who believes so strongly in the healing power of

tears that her license plate reads :CRYBABE)

Play big in the world

Scatter love like wildflower seeds

Welcome your heart’s desires

Bring the light INTO the tunnel with you instead of waiting for it at the other end

Live with a heart-on


There is a Rubye’s Kids fundraising event coming up on March 19th, so if


you would like to know more about this extraordinary organization, please go
