It is beneficial to hold people and things precious because we learn how to treat them well, with carefulness. Practicing carries over into all aspect of living. The more people we hold precious, the more we stay in consciousness of caring, becoming predominantly caring people.
Caring ó the ability to hold preciousócomes from our place of ever-present happiness, the state of awareness that experiences joy and peace, regardless of the up and down events in living.
from our place of joyfulness and lovingness
The more we experience preciousness
the more we are living in tune with our eternal Self
beyond limiting time, place, space
Traveling through Transitions
Traveling to an unfamiliar destination along an unknown road is a transition.
Body, mind and emotions are tuned to a higher pitch during transitions, drawing on our reserves. To do what is unfamiliar takes more concentrated energy than repeating habitual actions.
We can draw in fresh energy to keep up with above normal need by increasing aerobic activity and upgrading already available energy through deep relaxation and meditation.
During major transitions, such as the death of a love one, keeping some familiar habits in our daily routine provides us continuity and stability, giving the untraveled road ahead an underlying stable base.
Traveling through transition occurs more easily by carrying along baggage of familiar habits, activities.
The Preciousness of Friendship
A friend cares for us unconditionally.
Material possessions eventually wear out, even with perfect care. But, when we treat our friends with preciousness our love for them and their love for us grows and expands.
In the consciousness of being and having a friend we operate outside the world of cause and effect. A friend's love and care is with us when we are up or down, poor or wealthy, sad or happy.
Friendship is our soul in action.
Showing friendship is beyond the laws of physics, not dependent on a certain time, space or circumstance for its manifestation.
Beyond anything else
is the preciousness of friendship
