Witnesses and Friends
From “Crossing to Avalon” P. 111, 112
“Any significant, soul shaping event becomes more integrated into our consciousness, and more universal, when we can express the essence of the experience and have it received in depth by another. I am convinced that any human being who can serve witness for another at a soul level heals the separateness and isolation that we might otherwise feel.”
I am fortunate to have some close friends that have served witness at crucial transitions during my life. These friends have given me confidence, depth and meaning and throughout the years continue to stand by my side in times of celebration and times of challenging transitions. To have someone in my life that understands and accepts me without judgment, is indeed a blessing.
