    Who is a Friend?

    Guruji: Who is a Friend?
    What is friendship?
    What do you mean by friendship?
    You are lonely and you get somebody to cling to,
    and then the two of you hang out together,
    and you call this as ‘friendship’.

    What do you mean by ‘friendship’?
    What kind of friends do we have around us?
    When do we call somebody a friend?

    We say, ‘A friend in need is a friend indeed’,
    it means that friendship is a trade.
    ‘When I am in need, you help me and
    when you are in need, I help you, and then we are friends.

    Your views agree with mine, my views agree with you
    and we are friends. I need to copy assignments and
    you are always there, then we are friends.

    In all my rubbish, the one who can partner me, he is my friend.’

    Remember, a conditioned mind hates to be de-conditioned.
    It looks for those l and those situations that can reinforce
    its conditioning.

    A terrorist will not hang out with a monk,
    if he wants to remain a terrorist.
    In order to preserve his identities,
    his beliefs as a terrorist,
    it is very important for him to make friends with another terrorist.

    If he makes friends with a monk,
    his terrorism will vanish.
    So he cannot be friends with a monk.

    That’s how our lives run.
    We make friends with those who are as deeply
    conditioned as we are, so that we can remain conditioned
    slaves. That is how we choose our friends.
    That is the truth of our relationships and friendships.

    You will never make friends with someone who really
    shows the truth to you. You will make friends with
    someone who will keep you in illusion. And that’s what you
    call friendship- a bond of mutual deception.

    So, what is friendship?
    Friendship is nothing.
    Friendship is a state of being in which you are concerned
    not with what you can get from the other person,
    but in the real advancement of the other person.

    And the real advancement is, discovering the truth.
    So a friend is a friend only if he brings
    you closer to the truth; in whose presence
    you become less agitated,
    in whose presence a silence comes.

    If you are sad n in pain, Be as the ocean, and release. The ocean tides don't pause and hold in anything, they ebb...and then they flow. Only briefly holding on top of a wave for a moment. If something from your past bubbles up, simply take a deep breath, and let it go. More love!
