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!
