Family is More Than People Who Look like You
In our lives we sometimes meet and develop long lasting relationships built on mutual respect, support and love. I know that we sometimes think that our blood relatives and family have carte blanche or a free card because we look like each other and share a common family tree.
I am certain that I am not the only person who has ‘relatives’ who are not as close to them as blood relatives. There are some relatives (or they) choose not to be close for one reason or another and we sometimes try to justify the relationship. I believe that sometimes we are given friend and loved ones because we are both in need of the relationship. These bonds provide us with a connection to the world that is deeper than blood. If we are all connected to the divine energy of the universal source, God, the all-knowing (whatever you choose to call it), then I believe we are all connected through the common power. Family and friends, to me, are those people who choose to be a part of each other’s lives, lovingly, respectfully, continuously and constantly growing into realizing the need and value of each other’s worth.
Have a friend/family Meaningful Monday!
“A united family is a powerful force.”
MERINDILOGUN PROVERB 11:12
“Better is a dish of vegetables where love is than a fattened ox served with hatred”
To clear up conflict:
- 1 tsp. Lavender Flowers
- ½ tsp. Patchouli Leaves
- 1 tsp. Cinnamon-bark chips
- ½ tsp. Rose petals
- ½ tsp. Sandalwood chips
- 1 tsp. Hyssop
Using a mortar and pestle or a coffee grinder, grind each individual ingredient and then combine. Use 1-2 pinches of the chosen blend in your burner. Once the aroma dissipates, reapply the blend (Meaningful Mondays pp. 97-98).
