Ramadan 10: The Givers of Energy

Keep away from those who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you believe that you too can become great. – Mark Twain

A question that has puzzled many for so many years is why some people we meet leave us feeling drained where others leave us feeling energetic and strong? The Celestine Prophecies explain this to be the exchange of energies … some people take energy, while others give energy away. Those who give us energy are sometimes the only answer and solution during times of personal hardships, challenges and tribulations. Those who give us energy are our true friends, sisters and brothers.

People always mention more money, more time, more things, more food, more, more and more … but the one ‘more’ that people seldom mention, is more TRUE friends. These true friends tell you why you can and not why you cannot, these true friends make you feel anything is possible and that if anything goes wrong, they are there to hold you, these true friends bring you closer to god.

We find that true friends are rare to find and from our experience, they do not exceed a handful. However, when they are found, they are like the sun, difficult to live without and when they are not found, they are like water, a commodity difficult to live without as well.

We ask allah in this Ramadan to bless our friends wherever they are, and bless us with their presence and kindness. We also ask that god blesses those without … generous givers of energy.
