If you could use only a few words to describe
what friendship means to you, what words would you choose? I
choose loyalty, honesty, support, open mindedness, harmlessness,
and unconditional Love.
I have learned through the years that to have a friend requires
being a friend. It relates to the adages: "What you reap,
you sow." or "What goes around comes around."
Friendship is a state of Being.
It is not about doing something for another or having lots of
possessions to attract another. It is about being a mirror in
which the other sees himself/herself. In a Consciously open and
honest friendship, growth is the miraculous process available
to each friend. Communication is a key component to a sincere
and authentic friendship. When full permission is given by both
friends to speak the truth and create mutual growth, anything
True friendship is about seeing yourself and
the other as God, Soul, Love, Limitless.
It is the experience of knowing another at Soul level. There
is a recognition of the other as a part of me, an undeniable
oneness that is beyond space and time. It may appear that the
form of a particular friendship lasts one month, five years,
or a lifetime. The actual connection between two Souls is ever
present and everlasting no matter what the form
looks like. When considered from this perspective of the Soul, friendship is being
Love in each and every moment.
We never know when someone will pop into our life and make a
difference. By living in the moment, we can be open to all the
opportunities friendship has to offer.
In my life, my friends have been the guiding
lights to my growth and transformation. Because my journey to
know God is my greatest
passion, my friends have been the bridges that assisted me in
crossing the calm and not so calm waters of life. True friends
keep reminding me that I am not alone. I no longer have to take
this journey of life by myself. There are others here to support
me and share in my adventures. My friends are the signposts along
the road. They light up my life by giving me the gifts of Love and acceptance.
Friendship is about looking into the eyes of another and seeing
myself. Friendship is about giving and receiving. Friendship
is about remembering that there is really no one else out there.
We are all one. Friendship is God's
magical, miraculous looking glass, through which we see each
other with the eyes of Soul.
