“A Reason A Season and A Lifetime”

“A Reason, a Season or a Lifetime?”

Those of you who, like me, have people come and go from your life, would probably find some solace from the slides.

Granted, people come to us for a reason, a season or a lifetime, but we will never know which it is until….they leave, especially the “seasonal” friend. We can identify the “reasonal” friend – that is the one who comes to help us out when we needed it most, or to give us a lesson in life. And we can only hope that our good friends are lifetime friends, but will we ever know for sure? If we cling to them, and they turn out to be just “reasonal” or “seasonal”, we suffer, don’t we?

The “simple” thing to do with friendships  and even family, then, would be to take each moment as being precious and valuable. Do not look back at the past (especially the quarrels!). So, each time you meet your friend or loved one, think of it as the last meeting in this lifetime. Do not have expectations or everlasting friendship for the future. Just cherish the present moment, just as we cherish our breadth, and make the encounter a pleasant and memorable one. We will continue meeting in many lifetimes if we are kammically destined to do so.

Thank you for being part of my life…..
