Free and joyful despite the headlines
To desire wholly is to create (A Course in Miracles)

To the people in my life I was once closer to

Please know that what was real between us is still real. I remain wide open to you, and nothing real has changed.

While we have both changed, and the circumstances of our lives have too, nothing real between two people can be lost. In friendship, there is a shared treasure which is eternal and free from the changing forms, definitions, and perceptions of the world.

In all the friendships that meant so much to me along the way, I recognize that there was the good and the bad. We shared beautiful, inspiring feelings and intentions. That was the real part. Then there were the unhealthy parts—the selfishness, conflict, and so on. That is the part of me that died a while back. The part you might have valued, I assure you, is still very much alive.

Here I sit with a clear memory of the good, in a life of total honesty and freedom, and with unbreakable joy in my heart that longs to be shared.
