Who is your favorite companion?



Can you name your companions?  You may name your mate, friends, parents or kids.  Are they truly your companions?  Most people think companions are only people.  In reality we spend the majority of our time with our thoughts as our companions.

 

How much time do you spend with your companions? Do you spend thirty minutes, an hour or two hours with friends and family?  Who are your companions the rest of day?  Can you name them?  Are they thoughts and feelings?  Are they focused on anger, worry, resentment, lack, victimhood, gratitude, creativity or being present?

 

Observe your thoughts and feelings for a couple of days and find out what types of companions you spend your waking time with.  You may be surprised who your companions are.

 

In the context of Tending to Your Garden Within, it is important to find out what kinds of companions reside in our garden within.  Are our companions serving our highest good, have they served their purpose, or are they harming us?  The following poem describes this concept further.

 

 

Our Companions

 

Who are your companions?

 

They are many.

 

Observe your thoughts for a moment.

 

The types of thoughts that visit your head are your companions.

 

Listen to your conversations with your friends.

 

What you talk about most are your companions.

 

You think about your companions.

 

You talk about your companions.

 

You extract energy from your companions.

 

You sleep with your companions.

 

Which companion do you invest the most time?

 

Who is your favorite companion?

 

Anger, hatred, jealousy, judgment

gratitude, creativity, or love?
