Of Love and Fun

So, OK, here’s my truth:

I am a lover of love.
I love loving.
I love being loved.
I love loving my lover.

I love fun, sure. But not like I love love.

I have the most fun when I’m loving. When I’m loved. When I’m doing the things I love.

Fun without love is never fun enough for me. Love without fun is impossible.

All of the things I do in the name of fun are about love.

I am a fun lover.

Loving fun: The fun I teach, the fun I share, the fun I seek, the fun my life is for.

    Bernie, are you taking lovers' walks? 😉


    That video of you the 70s from the other day? Will Ferrell in this skit? Separated at birth…

    Lovers' walks. You betcha. Sometimes by myself.

    Will Ferrell? He often does standin for my standups.

    Bernie, this sounds so much like me that I had to check to be certain I was not playing Bernie DeKoven in some alternate reality whose brane accidentally brushed ours.

    Here's the thing: the relationship between Love and fun is discernable.

    Love flows endlessly, in infinite quantity, through everything at all times.

    "Fun" is our way of saying, "I was riding the Love wave today."

    Becoming conscious of the flow of Love allows us to be more active in the use of that flow…in other words, to become someone like you, Bernie, who loves love and loves fun and enjoys loving fun so much that he makes it his life's work.

    I love this post, Bernie!!

    "The love wave" – Yes. It is to grok, so to speak. It is to share. It is to ride.


    Thanks, Rick.
