QUOTES

“It was a very special moment for John's spirit was awakening and he was opening up, I had touched and resonated with his soul. It was more than just cyber sex, more than making love with someone you loved, it was blending souls as soul mates do and it was an incredible moment for the two of us. We both cried beautiful happy tears”
Astrid Brown, A Psychic Affair: A Romantic Novel
"I don't know what you have done, my mind is not my own
For you have magicked me for my feelings for you have grown
I did not set to fall in love, for you must have cast a spell
For you have bewitched me and all my doubts dispel
What spell have you cast to enchant me like this?
To make me fall in love and ache for your kiss”

“I heard your whispered fantasies so clear
Softly told in my ear
I opened my eyes you weren't there
So real my dream, I was so aware
But we'll meet again so certainly
In our whispered fantasy”
Astrid Brown, Whispered Fantasies

WHAT DOES FRIENDSHIP MEAN TO YOU?

Add to Technorati Favorites


I was philosophizing this morning about how my life has developed and how far I've come, especially this last couple of years, has life changed me, what have I learned, have I become stronger or weaker, what has changed and am I the better for it? Looking back, yes I have changed, but for the better, I've discovered a lot about me and I've realized I can be more resourceful and I'm much stronger than I first thought.

I'm not going to go into it in any detail as the past has gone and I personally don't feel dwelling on the past benefits any of us, for once it's gone, you can never get it back and life, like the Earth and the world evolves and that is how it's meant to be. Change is good it teaches us new things, prevents us from becoming stagnant and helps us grow spiritually for the better. We can choose to stay in our comfort zone forever or try too, but to do so prevents us from developing new facets to our personalities and learning about others.

It is my belief, life, the Universe, God call it what you will, change is meant and designed to help us be aware of those other than ourselves. Not only does it does it teach us about ourselves, our strengths and weaknesses and how WE resonate with others, it teaches others about themselves, through their interaction with us.

Concerning friendship, the topic of this blog, it made me aware of what true friendship is about. Many of you will realize the terms "Fair-weather Friend" and "Crocodile Tears" and if you do not let me explain what they are. A Fair-weather friend is someone who is only interested in you when things are going well for you as soon as any storms and troubles affect you they disappear. Crocodile Tears pertains to when crocodiles chew their victims the action of their chewing affects their tear ducts and makes them appear to cry when chewing, making them appear remorseful and sad at doing so, in other words, they are not true tears and they really don't give a hoot about you or what they have done.

In this last couple of years, I have really learned what constitutes and who my true friends are. True friends will stick out the storms with you and when you are going through really difficult times, they will stay around to help you out. Even if there is not much they can do, they will do their very best to empathize and share your pain and wont walk away, even if they are having storms themselves for they know in their heart, when you are able you will be there for them too. A true friend loves you unconditionally, does not foist their opinions on to you, but will genuinely understand and share your bad times as well as your good. The other thing belief I have about friendship, is no matter how awful a friend has been to you, you can forgive them if they themselves have learned and come to realize, what a fair-weather friend they have been to you. I myself can forgive anything if the perpetrator has become aware of the pain they have caused and are genuinely remorseful for it. That does not mean you have to be a doormat, far from it forgiveness is not about that. None the less some never do and all you can do to prevent harm to your own soul is to walk away from such toxic friendships, forgive them because holding on to grudges and bearing malice only hurts you in the end. Some of you may have had a situation like this as I have myself recently. Someone I thought was a very good friend alas with a heavy heart I had to disassociate myself from her. I bear no malice and forgive but until they become aware of true friendship that is how it must be.

Great read, it's not the usual romantic novel it's a bit of a cross genre being informative and paranormal but it had me hooked, I would love it if the author wrote a sequel as I would love to know how the characters relationship goes I do hope the author does Sarah65 __________________________ Amazing read and was engrossed until I finished reading, this book is more than a novel it helps understand the psychic's world and has such depth of feelings Stella Matthews An interesting read different but I really enjoyed this book I liked the factual glossary at the end, it helped make sense of the paranormal happenings throughout S Williams
