Neo-Pagan Modern Thoughts On Society

As we grow older we see friends come and go. If we are lucky a few friends stick around and show that they will nearly always be there for us. But for the great many of us, most of our friends from our past are long distant memories with no names and fading faces.

But for the great many of us, most of our friends from our past are long distant memories with no names and fading faces.

Each person is on their own individual spiritual evolution. Each person is trying to evolve to a higher state or better themselves in this life alone. That path of self betterment is never easy and sometimes it is easier to give up on the eternal quest and just live with no thoughts of spiritual ramifications. Sometimes a person gets off track and then finds their way back later in life and renews their life goals and aims. Each person makes their own choice.

Recently at the Sacramento Pride festival I was faced with one of my long lost friends. We spoke for the first time in a very long time. We had been friends for a very long time and then something “just happened” and we found ourselves less than friends and talking less and less until finally we didn’t speak at all. I deleted his phone number and email from my internal system and I am sure he deleted mine. It was sad. But it made me think, friends come and go in your life. Each one serves some sort of necessary service in your life. And then very often, they fade away and go down another path. Perhaps each of you became friends due to the timing of your individual life circumstances. Perhaps you were drawn to each other as you each were looking to fill an empty hole in your soul. Then once that hole was filled you didn’t need each other anymore. Sad but true to life.

My friend and I caught up on the changes in our lives and I realized that we are very different people now. I understood that our friendship had been a wonderful treasure and had made sweet memories of my earlier life. But it was now only going to be distant memories and life experience.  We had serves each other’s purpose in life. We had helped each other evolve in some way. It had hurt but now we were at that point where we were distant enough to recognize the lesson.

Don’t get sad when you lose friends. Just realize that you are evolving and your friend is evolving and you are both moving down different paths in life. Sometimes your paths come back together later in life, and sometimes they just don’t. Treasure your memories of your past friendships. Keep those lessons alive inside yourself. You both learned something and evolved somehow, even if you can’t see the final evolution. Its all ok in the end.
