Friends are definitely one of life’s most important choices. By choosing friends you will be deciding who you want to surround yourself with, what energy you are looking to have around you, and in a way, you will also be seeing a reflection of yourself.
Many friends appear and disappear in our lives, some staying longer than others, and a few are surely there forever. Friendship is a wonderful construction, based on trust and love, as sublime as it is fragile.
A good friend allows us to be ourselves, without filters or masks. We can share our concerns and find a hug or shoulder to rely on at difficult times. There are many gifts that we can receive from them. They are lighthouses that light up on the horizon and illuminate our paths.
Did you know that some of our friends come from other lifetimes? Some will have had a debt to us, others will be our creditors, but either way, they are always a blessing and a great opportunity to correct the mistakes of those other lives.
A good friend reminds us that we have great power and that it’s time to connect with them, to stop blaming and complaining, and finally go through life with a higher vibration. A true friend reminds us that we have 100% responsibility and that we can transcend everything when we dare to listen to our hearts and be ourselves.
Through Ho’oponopono I understood that we all have two inseparable friends who are with us moment to moment — of course, whenever we decide to approach them. One is God, that God within us, who is closer than our own breath, that eternal friend who loves us unconditionally, the one who knows everything about us — above all that is right and perfect, and in which we can find shelter because it is always available. The other one, not least important, your inner child (your subconscious) is the great ally to make that connection with God. While your inner child isn’t on this plane, it’s still this plane with which your inner child identifies. Don’t forget and hold its hand whenever you can, because it’s the best partner you’re going to find!
Our job here on Earth is to wake up, become aware, and be who we truly are. Our friends can be a bridge to help us become who we always wanted to be. Live in the present moment, thank those close to you, and accept yourself as you are, so you can also accept your friends as they are and be there for them when they need you.
