- Think about what friendship means to you and what you value most in a friend. Think about what you would like to offer to others as a friend. Good friends are a great resource for happiness and freedom.
- You have to make your own way before you can help anyone - and no one can help you.
- Try this insight meditation. Close your eyes and hold the feeling or situation you want to explore in your concentration for a few moments. When you are ready, ask your subconscious mind to produce an image that describes either the situation or the feeling that you are trying to understand. Let the image surface. At first, it may seem to have nothing to do with what you are asking. Persevere. It may take practice to understand the symbols of your mind. After studying the image, end the meditation and open your eyes. You can continue to think about the image when you are not meditating as well as the insights you have gained.
