the only truth I know is my own experience

No domination! Or the true friendship March 18, 2009

Don’t walk in front of me, I may not follow.
Don’t walk behind me, I may not lead.
Just walk beside me and be my friend.
Albert Camus

Being a giver by nature, in my freindships throughout my life I used to give more than to receive,

I used to lead, I used to to be the inspiration and the comforter…

But at some point I realised that actually it is my lovely freinds who give me much more than I could ever be able to give. 

It is my great freinds who are my teachers and my comforters…

 And at some next point I realised that we are totally equal and the only way we can walk forward is walking beside each other.

LOVE, axinia

    I like that a lot. There is no definition of friendship so many people do not know what it should look like. This post is the simple truth; what would we do without real friends

    hmm….to me, I never thought of what I got, or what I gave…..I just consider my friends a part of my life…….its not taking them for granted ……but def if I think now…..I got a lot from them and i guess they would be better persons to comment about what I gave coz what I give should be equally valuable to them right! 🙂

      Sahaja, what we give in friendship is mostly time and attention…and of cause, love… Even if you do not notice how you give love (which one cannot and should not really notice!!), but you definietly notice if you give time 🙂 I mean freindship is time-consuming, it is a fact.
      I am sure you give a lot to your freinds, no doubt about it. You are sucha good freind, I know.

    ahah just today morning before coming at office i went and look for a printed paper i really wanted to read it after a long time and it is a speech of Mataji on friendship. all about friendship, about how important our friends are and that now in this era of blossom we have thousands of friends all over who will always love and support us.

  8. Dev Says:

    Yes…friendhip is the upward glane to the powers above.
    Yes…its really that scred a thing which we take for granted.

    Hi Axinia, pure hearts always enjoy the best in friendship. give and take policy in friendship is only superficial if we consider the inner love and the bond between. A true friend is always who comforts you in the bad times but not the one who just enjoys with you in the good times. and a true friend always has some time to spare and share the joys and sorrows. ” A friend in need is a friend indeed”

    • axinia Says:

      Nice input on friendship, Sailaja!

      I think one of the most important things about friendship is also that it is only a good friend who can tell you all truth about yourself if you are doing wrong things (if you do not see it yourself, of cause). And that is very valuable.

    I agree! 🙂

    lovely blog you have! very nice thought here the “No Domination”, yes I think I also used to believe that I myself played the teacher or giver most of the time with other people…until at last I saw that in the processing of “teaching” or sharing in general, I was also the student and recipient at the same time.

    Peace + Metta

    any relationship is said to go through this cycle,
    I am good, world is bad..
    world is good, I am bad,
    both of us are bad
    all of us are good

    • axinia Says:

      never heard of this before, but I tend to agree. 🙂

      I really like the last point, however I know many people who end up thinking “everything is bad”…
