Fulfillment Exercises

Exercise Two Today's Companions

Who are your companions? It's very important to take half an hour, every month or so, and ponder your companions. The days pass and your key people are influencing you constantly. It's essential to take time and understand what's happening to you as a result of your relationships. This exercise will not only tend to free you of harmful influences, but you will, assuredly, become a more thoughtful and appreciative friend.

Sit comfortably and recall your companions, including work associates, one at a time. Feel you are calmly, and with good will, facing a companion. Mentally ask each of these questions and pause after each one to think deeply:

 
 

What are your views of the world? Of life? Of yourself?

What are you doing with your life? Your resources? Your goals and dreams?

What do you think of me? Of our relationship? Of our future?

What are your values? What values do we share? What values don't we share?

What is your view of the future?

How is our relationship going?

How can we make our relationship even better?

How can I be a better companion to you?

 
 
 

Do you find yourself in accord with what your companions and associates are doing with their thoughts, feelings, and actions? Remember, everyone has problems. Love and appreciate your companions but you must become aware of the impacts positive or negative which they are significantly contributing to your thoughts, feelings, actions, and view of the world.

If your companions are destructive, they are also destroying you. You may not be doing them much good either. Work to change your destructive relationships into finer ones through your development of higher consciousness. If you find in a short time that you're not making headway toward more constructive companionships, try again! If you continue to meet great resistance, seek other companions and start a new, exciting life. But be sure your new relationships are genuine avoid a cult of shared fantasies. Find companions whom you admire and appreciate, and who are truly constructive in the give-and-take of daily life.
