Friends and responsibility

Wednesday, August 6th, 2008


Dear fellow souls, we would like to talk about your word and concept “friend.” Some of you judge how prosperous you are in your world by how many friends you have. We would like to ask you, at what cost do you have these companions?

Many humans define friends as those on whom they can depend to always be there for them. Others feel that friends are not true unless they will sacrifice themselves and their lives for whatever is asked of them. Are you beginning to sense that the definition can vary depending upon the viewpoint?

The underlying lesson here revolves around responsibility. On a soul level you are responsible only for yourself, and you cannot truly know yourself until you assume responsibility for your own actions. Those who seek to have their friends take responsibility for their enterprises so that they do not have to do so themselves, are turning away from the lessons they came here to learn. “Friends” who step in and shoulder all the obstacles are facilitating their comrades in not learning and thus in having to repeat the desired tasks.

Love your friends enough to say “no” to them when they want you to deflect the lessons they need to learn. Be there for them so they may talk through the experience and learn from it—that is being their true friend.

In love, light, and laughter.
