Being a true friend is one of life’s greatest accomplishments. It means you have learned how to connect soul to soul with another human being. At this level of connection you naturally look for the best in the others; and that’s what makes you a best friend.

Satori Wisdom - Thriving Thursday

Choose one relationship you would like to focus on for today. The first person that pops into your mind is probably the one that needs attention. 

Start by closing your eyes, and imagine that person in front of you. Breathe in and as you breathe out send love from your heart to their heart. Continue to do this throughout the day and be aware of how you feel. If you see or talk to that person, notice the difference in your connection, continue sending them love while you’re listening, and speak from your heart.

One of the most basic human needs of the heart is attention. When you give another person your full attention you are helping to fulfill that need. Just make sure the attention you give is positive rather than negative.
