Episode 8: Rabbi Bradley Artson
"Love is never displaced by additional love, it is enhanced, because all of our different loves are expressions of the one embracing love."
In other words, your capacity to love is infinite. So says our guest this week, Rabbi Bradley Artson, Vice President and Dean of the Ziegler School of Rabbinic Studies at the American Jewish University in Los Angeles.
Rabbi Artson is a passionate, brilliant, warm and sensible presence on the spiritual scene, and I wanted top share his down-to-earth spirituality with you.
Listen especially to his ideas about how love recycles -- the more you give it, the more it engenders more love. He calls it "mutually reinforcing love" For example, knowing that it's possible to love a spouse strengthens our love and trust of others, and of the divine. Cherishing ourselves allows us to receive unconditional love from without.
Love doesn't compete with love. Love multiplies love.
I found this interview particularly inspiring and encouraging.
And I'm convinced you will, too!
