Complimentary Love

 

                                                                            

Even though I am chronological adult; at age 52, one of my favorite radio programs is called Kids Corner played on WXPN 88.5 , broadcast out of the University of Pennsylvania.  The ‘big kid’ host is the ever so enthusiastic Kathy O’Connell who is like the cool big sister/aunt that many would like to have. The show which airs from 7-8 pm est each weeknight, has a plethora of components that encourage listeners to love learning in the form of games, music, interesting guests and a ‘ radio stage’ on which kids can share their talents.  

A few nights ago, Kathy’s musical guests were The Verve Pipe whose songs entertain adults and children. I found myself singing along to the lyrics of a song called Complimentary Love from A Family Album.  “What if” I mused, “there really was enough love for everyone without the need to either hoard or withold? How would life be if we KNEW that to be the truth? What if love multiplied by sharing it, rather than dividing it? ”

I know that when I live from that sense of ‘enough-ness’, I have room to welcome in people each day.  I feel sad when I think that there are some I encounter who believe that those they know now are the only ones they will ever know. There are actually people waiting for you to come into their lives and make a difference.  I am one of the richest women I know, since my friends are my treasures and there was a time when I didn’t even know they existed, not even on my radar screen and then ta-da…one day we showed up at the same time and the same place. How cool is that?   Are you willing to enrich yourself by opening your heart to complimentary love?

    Absolutely spot on… richness is not necessarily about money… we live on an abundant, beautiful planet – love is all around!

Pity Party
I had to giggle when I saw this meme, created by Theresa Byrne, another contributor to The Good Men Project,  since it was sucked right out of my spinning mind. Many's the time I have petulantly pouted about the way life events were unfolding. I have stomped and stormed, raved and raged (interna

Making The Ordinary Come Alive
  I became an adoptive parent in 1992, when diminutive blond haired, green eyed Adam became my son. I like to say that my stretch marks are on my heart, not my hips. A high energy kiddo with his own ideas of how life should be, there were times when I questioned my ability to keep up with hi

Changing the Dishes
  Fellow Good Men Project author Thomas Fiffer shared his insights about the holiday of Passover. I saw his blog entry this morning as I was contemplating what to write for today's Bliss Blog. Having been raised in a Jewish home, Passover was eagerly anticipated all year long. The pre-holi

Self Imposed Slavery
Tonight marks the first night of Passover which commemorates the journey from slavery to freedom of the Jews in Egypt who were compelled to work at the peril of their own lives.  Jews around the world (and others who are invited guests as they were in my childhood home) will gather to celebrate a

That's What Makes You Strong
  Another soul passed into the Light yesterday to join the celestial choir. I first heard Jesse Winchester's music in the 80's. As a consummate singer songwriter, he had  a gift for vivid imagery that took the listener along for the ride. Songs such as Mississippi, You're On My Mind,
