I know there must be more of us who are foolish enough to believe we have something to contribute. I think I will start a viral message today that says “The Bead People kindly request that you lay down your guns, your jealousy and anger, and that you open your wounded heart again so that it can fill with the one thing that really matters—love.”
Love is not item or action. Love is not even emotion. Love is the energy that fills the spirit, drives creation, connects one lonely soul to another and, most importantly, makes you feel like smiling again. Say these words or something like them to one other person today . . . .
I love you because of your laughter.
I love how you are different from me
and I love how you are the same.
I love the way your hair sits on your head and
that funny way you have of bending your neck when you are confused.
I love the way you encourage me
and I love the way you piss me off in such a way that gets me moving again.
Love is creative—it likes to bring fresh new things into being
It sees a new view on an old canvas.
Love feeds the spirit. Love feeds.
If you get a call to peace in your email, pass it on.
