The One I’m With…


Bertha…is harping…um…I mean…nudging me…about…love again…it all started with her little snippet of wisdom yesterday morning…which…she took from the old song…but…totally changed the context…and told me to…

Love the one…I’m with…each and every one of them…

I smiled…remembering the…free-love days…even though I knew that wasn’t her intent…and thought that was that…but…oh…no…not with…Bertha…she started a…campaign

And…before I knew it…I was getting emails…with links to articles…about…loving others…how to connect deeply with people that you come in contact with…in fact…almost everywhere I turned…there was some reference…to…love

It was then…that…I realized…indeed…I had grown lax…in my efforts from earlier in the year…to see the world…as a whole…through the eyes of…love

I know why…I’ve become sloppy with my practices…they take…time…they take…effort…they require a conscious…decision…to do…and…I get to going at the…speed of life…and…it’s not that I don’t care…it’s just plain don’t think about it…

So…once again…Bertha…challenges me…and…you…if you will…to take the time…to make the effort…to truly…feel the love…for everyone…I come in contact with…whether I like them or not…and…then…spread it out…to those…I will never meet…never even know they exist as individuals…

She again…gives me the words to use when thinking of others…I wish you peace…I wish you love…I wish you happiness

And…that is my wish for you…today…

Jane
