get busy loving

I spent a few hours reading to my friend Adelle today from her Science of Mind magazine. There was an interview with John Randolph Price, the author of many titles including The Abundance Book.

I was moved by a something he said, and went looking the interview online so I could quote it directly, but it's not available in full. So no doubt I'll botch it up a bit, but hopefully the essence will come through.

It was in the context of prosperity and abundance. He had received some sort of inner guidance or a dream (can't remember the specifics) that told him that his job was simply to love, and that everything else he needed would follow from that.

He told his wife about it, and she said something like, "Well then, let's get busy loving!" Together they showered everything in their world, whether animate or inanimate, with love and kindness. This included their car, the refrigerator, their family and friends ... I bet it even included the sun and the clouds and the moon.

I thought it was the coolest project I'd ever heard of a couple undertaking together. To be honest, I can't remember what the article said about the outcome, although I imagine that the flow of prosperity in their lives couldn't help but increase. I didn't care. I was too busy being enchanted by the vision of a couple uniting their energy and attention in such a joyful common purpose. Wouldn't it have been fun to be a fly on their wall? I get goose bumps just thinking about it.

I attribute reading JRP's stuff two years ago directly to my dream job and a 25% pay raise. I started re- reading him last night :-)
