I honor your path
I bring an unprotected heart to our meeting place
I drink from your well
I hold no cherished outcome
I will not negotiate by withholding
I am not subject to disappointment
Mindfulness is being fully present without judgment or expectation.
When you can approach the present moment without fear, you have arrived. The Celtic Vows of Friendship are guidelines that apply to every relationship and situation. Observe your inner state of consciousness as you make your daily decisions.
When you disagree with someone’s decision, can you still honor their path? If you’ve been hurt, are you mindful enough to act from the heart or do you find yourself putting up walls of protection? Are you fully present and engaged in your interactions?
Most people attach expectation to everything they do. It’s fine to have preferences, but when those preferences solidify into requirements, suffering ensues. Even something as simple as sending a text carries immense opportunity for spiritual growth. Attachment creates pain in our experience; whereas, openness allows life to be as it is without limitation.
Love is giving – giving based in kindness, freedom and compassion without expectation. Anytime disappointment arises, go within and examine where you attached to a particular outcome. Awareness creates change, and as you change, the world around you is transformed.
Today my intention is to honor the process of my awakening. I am grateful for all the relationships of my life and see them as teachers who have graced my path.
