“It is important to have strong spiritual friendships not spiritual in the rarefied sense, but in a really down-to-earth way, to have good friends in the dharma with whom you can talk things over, share experiences, share difficulties and whose spiritual support we are assured of.’- Sangharakshita, “Going for Refuge”
When we offer genuine support and not narcissistic self doubting needs or self serving projections, we ARE ALL uplifted by the situation.. When we open ourselves to genuine mutual respect we will receive mutual respect. When we doubt the other we doubt our self. When we criticize the other we criticize our self. . When we are initiate open dialogue and dare to share/live the dream we are open to the joy of a very rewarding adventure.
When we are open to love we will receive love! When we are current the current is strong. When we share our fears and doubts we open ourselves to mutual understanding, human understanding and heavenly support.
NEVER IN A PICKLE AND LOVING WHAT WE PICK AND CHOOSE TO SAY AND DO
ALWAYS CONSCIOUS OF CAUSE AND AFFECT (karma)
When we offer our true self, in tune WE ARE COMFORTABLE to express ourselves AND OFFER OUR BEST SELF. When we offer our heartfelt truth, we are as one.and can be supportive of shared journey’s and shared experience.
When we offer our thoughts our ideas our opinions OUR SKILLS AND PRODUCT, it is a gentle sharing that is nonthreatening AN act of kindness THAT NEVER OVER BOILS! .
‘Purity kindness and sincerity are the two wings with which we can ALL soar above the earth and all temporary nature.
Don’t ask how the past has shaped the self ask how one is shaping the future
