We play together. Every day. Because the world only has two types of people in it my children: The players, and the player haters.
Be a player.
Remember learning to play catch before you really knew how to catch a ball? The game had very few rules except play that you can do it already.
Play that you can live by an inner authority of trust and integrity. Play that you can give everything and still get enough. Play that you know what you need and you can care for those needs by being interwoven with everyone and their needs too.
There is a story we tell in my family, it goes like this:
"Hell is a place where everyone is sitting at a banquet, and they have exactly what they want on their plate in front of them
Their arms are very long though, and they do not bend.
Heaven is a place where everyone is sitting at a banquet table across from each other. They have exactly what they want in front of them on their plate.
And they are feeding their neighbor across from them what is on their plate that they cannot reach.
And their neighbor across from them is lovingly and carefully feeding them what is on their own plate that they cannot reach".
