Three of Cups — Spiritual Message of the Day
Did your mother ever tell you that you couldn’t be friends with someone she considered to be a “bad influence”? Or did she encourage you to play with a child who she felt was a “good influence?” Even as adults our friendships influence us and help shape who we are.
Traveling a spiritual path, we may begin to find that some friends aren’t on the same wavelength that we are now tuning in to. As a consequence, we may find those connections diminishing as we share less in common with those people. This should not be seen as a judgment of those people, though, since everyone travels their path in their own time. The challenge, though, is to evaluate old friendships and to find new ones that resonate with our new path in life. After all, the saying that “you are the average of your five closest friends” may be a generalization, but there is truth in it.
