love and friendship

Thursday, June 12, 2014

As we divulge our inner most self to others we are strengthened not weakened.

It’s when we claim ownership over those that we share with do we feel a divide

if we are to part ways. Then we feel a sense of lose when the relationship is no

longer what it was, or no longer physically exist at all. If you are to love fully

and unconditionally in the realization of the impermanence of all life in the

physical plane. There is never a loss only gains. There are no relationships

in the physical realm that will last forever. Within the mind relationships need

never end. It’s been sometime since I have read “Tuesdays with Morrie” but it

was  great book about a great man that was on his death bed of sorts

and yet he he was full of life till his very last breath . Now that’s the way to go…

giving all the way and I would like to say he still is…

Here are a few quotes from my friend Morrie whom I may have never met in

person in this lifetime but he has touched my heart dearly.

So I share:

“There’s a big confusion in this country over what we want versus what we need.
You need food, you want a chocolate sundae. You have to be honest with yourself.
You don’t need the latest sports car, you don’t need the biggest house. The truth is,
you don’t get satisfaction from those things. You know what really gives
you satisfaction? Offering others what you have to give.”~Morrie

“Death ends a life, not a relationship.” (174) – Morrie
