What is a True Friend?

What is a True Friend?
First off there are many levels of friendship and the word “friend” is sometimes used very lightly. I believe a true friend is very rare. True friendship means 100% trust in each other, knowing that they would do anything for each other, even if it would mean giving up one’s life for each other. True friends can share EVERYTHING, good or bad; being a real friend means speaking the truth, even if it hurts. True friends will make time for each other when the other is in need of their company. They are likely to be interested in all aspects of each other’s life’s and will not desert each other for other people. A true friend is someone who would stop their own life to come to help despite the fact that there was no incentive or even risk or pain for them to do so. A true friend knows everything about you and still loves you, if not more so. That is true friendship to me and it ranks at the same level with true love which is as powerful as true friendship and the two combined create the ultimate in human relationships. `SSP

"When we open ourselves
to the heart of a friend or lover,
we trust that we are cherished,
loved unconditionally."

"Let there be no purpose in friendship save the deepening of the spirit."
-- Khalil Gibran

The Five Reiki Principles BY DR.MIKAO USUI

The Five Reiki Principles

BY DR.MIKAO USUI


I - Just for today, I will not be angry.

Anger at others or oneself or at the whole world, creates serious blockages in one's energy. It is the most complex inner enemy.

Reiki is an excellent tool to remove anger blockages which have accumulated in the body over years, but it cannot remove the residue of current anger which occurs daily.

Letting go of anger. brings Peace into the Mind.


II - Just for today, I will not worry.

While anger deals with past and present events, worry deals with future ones. Although worry is not always a negative phenomena, endless worries may fill one's head, and each one bores a small hole in one's body and soul. While anger requires a focused Reiki treatment to remove obstacles, worry requires the energy to be spread throughout the entire body.

Letting go of worry, brings healing into the Body.


III - Just for today, I will be grateful.

Be grateful from your heart inward. Inner intention is the important element in this principle. Simple things as thanks, forgiveness, smile, good words, gratitude can improve others life and make them happy.

Being thankful brings Joy into the Spirit.


IV - Just for today, I will do my work honestly.

Support yourself and your family respectably, without harming others. Earn a respectable living, live a life of honor.

Working Honestly brings Abundance into the Soul.


V- Just for today, I will be kind to every living thing.

Honor your parents, honor your teachers, honor your elders.

Being Kind brings Love into the Will.

Happiness

Happiness
It is the art of living, the purpose of our existence. Happiness is the true index of quality of life. Without happiness, life is dry and meaningless. With happiness, life immediately becomes fulfilling and wonderful. Happiness is an infectious feeling that immediately lifts the sagging spirits of people. Happy people keep themselves happy because they know the little ways to appreciate themselves and to see the humor and magic in each moment.

ब्रेक आउट ऑफ़ routine

Break out of routine
"One must still have chaos in oneself to be able to give birth to a dancing star."
-- Nietzsche
Where do you need to do some ‘out of the box’ thinking and living?
We are creatures of habit, of patterns. While initially the habits may have served us, they may now be limiting our ability to experience more of life.
What aspect of your life has become routine? How might you bring new life to it? Do some outrageous dreaming! Then do something completely different today.
"When you do the common things in life in an uncommon way, you will command the attention of the world." -- George Washington Carver

अ परफेक्ट डे

A Perfect Day -

http://video.aol.com/video/perfect-day/1520408038 (please listen to this beautiful music while reading my thoughts)

Waking up with a smile on my face because I had happy dreams; opening my eyes to see the sun rise above the mountains and the sky turning into a fiery red/orange. I have a beautiful home, live in the country/state/place of my dreams. I have a lovely supportive family and kind, loving friends. I am healthy, energetic and I live in whatever abundance I choose. I love those who love me and even those who choose not to love me back. I forgive those who have hurt me and I keep my heart open even if that sometimes means to experience pain. I have careers that I am passionate about and one that I can let go off whenever I am ready. I am experiencing love, friendship, forgiveness, joy and happiness if I decide to let them into my life; and when it is time to go to bed I feel the embrace of love and safety and my heart flows over with gratitude. A perfect day!

What is YOUR perfect day?

Where's your attention?
"Only one thing has to change for us to know happiness in our lives: where we focus our attention."
-- Greg Anderson
What do you usually focus on: problems or solutions?
When our mind dwells on a problem, we stay stuck. But when we can shift to ask how we might achieve a solution to our problem, our subconscious mind, thinking and creativity move into gear. New possibilities open up.
Get in the habit of asking for solutions!
"Every choice moves us closer to or farther away from something. Where are your choices taking your life? What do your behaviors demonstrate that you are saying yes or no to in life?"
-- Eric Allenbaugh
Think In A New Way
Your thoughts guide you to your destiny. If you always think the same you will always get to the same place. Think in a new way and you will be a new person. Give happiness to all and you will live in peace. Create peace in your mind and you will create a world of peace around you.
I find hope in the darkest of days, and focus in the brightest. I do not judge the universe. - Dalai Lama

YOU matter -
Every day is a gift, Every day is a blessing. What matters at the end of the day is that we were able to make someone’s day better, help them on their path to happiness and make them smile. Telling someone that they matter, being cherished, wanted and loved and to never forget that is an incredible gift we can give that does not cost us anything else but an open heart.

Love and light - Namaste

Joy

Your purpose in life is the expression of soul qualities which bring joy and happiness. When you are doing something that you think you should be doing as part of your life's purpose and you do not feel joy in it, or it does not take you out of your personality, then you have to question if this is what you ought to be doing. Reflect on something you are doing in your life and ask yourself if it really is aligned with what is most appropriate for you?
