“People come into your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime.”
The most important person you must be friends with is yourself. Kindness is a language that everyone understands. We all want to be treated with love, kindness, sincerity and respect whether it is a personal or business relationship. When these qualities are absent, harmony and balance are lost and trouble is close at hand.
It is wonderful and fun when relationships are going well and developing nicely. But when challenges arise this is the real test of your character. These moments reveal the nature of your patterns of behavior. When important issues come up, you usually revert to your strongest and most basic patterns.
When survival issues are at stake such as money, sex, religion and power, people do the strangest things to maintain their control or dominance. People can be very harsh to win or get what they want. It is sad because the only thing that truly matters is love, friendship and kindness. All of the money, sex, power and material possessions you accumulate cannot be taken with you and do not keep you warm at night or truly comfort your heart and soul.
Some people come into your life for a reason to accomplish something or for a short lesson. Even in a singular moment the lesson or experience can be so profound that it affects your whole life and you remember it forever.
Some people come into your life for a season and the time can be so special, powerful and wonderful. It is not always easy to let these people go when the time is complete. It is important to allow people to come and go appropriately into your life without attempting to hold on or control the relationship or experience. If it is meant to be long term or even forever, the relationship will let you know and remain present or return. When you attempt to control someone with your will or force, you actually push them away and damage all involved.
Some people come into your life for a lifetime and these are the “keepers.“ They share your life and your highest highs and lowest lows. A real friend shows you love, kindness and compassion and does not judge you. They are unconditional and just care about you and always want your best. Real friends are God’s blessings! They are a special gift.
Now the tricky part is to know whether a person or friend is in your life for a reason, a season or a lifetime. Regardless of how long they are in your life for, make sure to give them the best you have every moment. To do this you simply have to follow proper principles and The Golden Rule.
Being human we have tendencies to be selfish, hurtful, manipulative and destructive in order to get what we so desperately think we need. Whenever the ego takes over, trouble is the result. As The I Ching states “When you exercise your ego, your spiritual development stops. Do not drag out disagreements with others because conflict is a prison that grows more dangerous every minute you are in it. Do not depart from the path of humility and correct conduct. “
You can have whatever you want without violating the rights of others. So keep your awareness burning brightly and do your best to live in the moment from your heart and intuition.
