PAULA's ABC OF FRIENDSHIP

"WE, THE RAKYAT (PEOPLE) ARE BEHIND YOU, PAULA KHOO"

Paula Khoo is my greatly admired friend on the Internet. Half of Malaysia and I would feel lost without her. She is a brave soul dedicated to freedom and liberty for her country. We think so much alike, that sometimes we steal each other thoughts. Every time I think of something to post; I had better check with Paula first. So here is what Paula posted, while I was still thinking of how to write it up!

"THE ABC OF FRIENDSHIP"

"This post is dedicated to all my blog readers and friends who have been with me in this blog. Thank you for showing me the meaning of friendship. You'll always be in my heart."

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

(A)ccepts you as you are
(B)elieves in "you"
(C)alls you just to say "HI"
(D)oesn't give up on you
(E)nvisions the whole of you (even the unfinished parts)

Loving-Kindness
CHESED
Do justice, love loving-kindness, walk humbly with God. Micah 6:8:
The cornerstone of Rabbi Nosson Zvi's service of God was chesed. This to him, meant being careful of anothers honor and dignity, helping others, having one's heart overflow with love and kindness, utilizing every opportunity to benefit others. It neant that older students shoud learn with younger ones... Above all, it meant that one should greet his fellow with a pleasant countence, because it makes the other feel good and binds people together in friendship.

Alan Morinis:



Many a doctrine is like a window pane. We see truth through it but it divides us from truth. I love you when you bow in your mosque, kneel in your temple, pray in your church. For you and I are sons of one religion, and it is the spirit. I existed from all eternity and, behold, I am here; and I shall exist till the end of time, for my being has no end.
Kahlil Gibran
