Very happy to call you friends. Today's blog is on the radness of friends. I love being, making, letting go, and gathering friends. I have the best friends in the world. I used to think a best friend is limited to one or two peeps. No I say! You can have 50 best friends. You can be the miracle worker you already are and best friend the world. Could you imagine? Besties with everyone you meet, EVEN THE PEOPLE THAT SHOW UP TO YOU AS SUCKING! How can we do this you ask? Well this is my theory. Not the truth , just a theory. Treat everyone as if they were your best friend, or treat them how you would with your best friend. Understanding situations, and seeing how the world is showing up for them. For me right now my hands hurt. (Just went through wart removal, not ashamed or embarrassed about it)
Instead of walkin around with a scowl , I am choosing to be so stoked to get these things off. That the pain becomes pleasant, and the snooty girl at the coffee shop bar did not fuel my wounds, because I am not creating her as anything but a rad person at work, and of service to me. She even brought me my food because she was concerned for my hands.
These folks that show up to us as unfriendly, or difficult become your zen masters (as best friends do). These folks become opportunity to think about your current state with a different kind of love. Forgiveness and understanding . jason Mraz and Brett Dennen wrote a song and one of the lyrics is. "Forgiveness is the only kind of love there is!" Rad line right? Walk through life with forgiveness and see what happens. Worked for Jesus, and Gandhi! Please, I implore you to do so. Try these shoes on for a moment.
Reverend E. @ the East bay church in Oakland said, "you can slap my mamma! (and you better not slap my mamma) But I gotta love ya".
What are love songs REALLY about? Boy meets girl, girl falls for boy, Boy screws up, girl freaks, boy does something cool, girl forgives. Imagine if love songs were not so limiting to the universe , and boy meant all life, and girl meant co existence.
LOVE would be all there is. Is it not? Is there anything more we say then "I want love " or "I am love"? In my lil brain I think not.
well johnny cash is on the overhead, my tea is down to 1/4 full, and my Greek salad is now Tasmanian.
I leave you with this!
