WOW – The Unforgettable Friend/ Friendship
People may start their life’s journey from seemingly equal levels, but some achieve great heights in their careers where other settle into very ordinary lives. Throughout life, from grade school to the retirement home, friendship continues to confer health benefits, both mental & physical. But as life moves on, people’s priorities and responsibilities shift, and friendships are affected, for better, or often, sadly, for worse.
As days turn into months and months into years, it is still difficult to understand how to detach yourself from the people of your past and to accept the reality that they will no longer be part of your present. Finally, life is all alone. With the grace of the Higher Power we keep moving and accepting thins as it is.
The sayings in English goes like this “if you love something, let it go, if it comes back, it was meant to be.” I used to think this saying was simply thought for idealists. But there is an actual wisdom in it.
The unforgettable friend or friendship I cannot forget is story of Krishna and Sudhama. The story of Krishna and Sudama contains several hidden lessons that we could learn from. True friendship doesn’t distinguish between high & low status or between riches & poverty. Therefore today, even after thousands of years, the friendship of Krishna & Sudama is remembered all over the world as a symbol of true love.
