Friendship is God’s love shining through the eyes of your loved ones, calling you home to drink His nectar of eternal unity. Friendship is God’s trumpet’s call, bidding the soul destroy the partitions of ego consciousness that separate it from all other souls and from Him. True friendship unites two souls so completely that they reflect the unity of Spirit and its divine qualities.
Practice even-minded calmness all the time. Become a king, an absolute monarch, of your own mental realm of calmness… Let nothing disturb your peaceable kingdom of calmness… this even-mindedness, when maintained by regular, deep meditation, removes the boredom, disappointment, and sorrow from everyday life, making it instead a very interesting and enjoyable experience of the soul.
