“Without friends, no one would choose to live, though they had all other goods.”-Aristotle
Sorry for no meditation last week, spending time with a friend took precedent. As it always should. Which in fact is what this weeks meditation is about. Spend some time with your friends.
The eventual purpose of all meditation, all spiritual enlightenment and evolution is, in the New Ager view, to once again rejoin our single consciousness as the Son of God. We are all parts of the same being and trying to remember that there is no line between you and I is one of the chief goals of our spiritual journey. And friends are one of those moments in life where it easiest to feel those walls between egos break down.
So this week I want you to spend time with a friend. In person is best, but if calling is all you can manage then do that (I understand, a lot of my friends live in other states than the one I live in). Have no purpose other to enjoy the time you spend with them…
…and maybe when, and only when, it’s over reflect on how good that time was and why it felt so wonderful. Believe it or not this will bring you closer to God and your true self. Time with a true friend is more spiritually productive than any amount of chakra meditations.
And don’t worry if you don’t have a lot of friends…often just one is enough.
