An answer about friendship

We define ourselves through the relations we have. Friendship is sacred, having a good friend is indeed a precious treasure.

“It is not easy figuring out who is a friend and who is not” you say, and this is a vital fact of life:

If you wanna be a good friend to someone, first of all you have to be your own best friend, and then discern vigilantly who is loving you for the sake of love, and who is “loving” you for his own interest.
After many blows with people who were seemingly friendly, but only interested to take, I have learned to be awake, trust my perception and be my own friend above all.

It seems that only when you are your best friend, you seem to recognize genuine friendship.

I feel an inner urge to express what I see, to communicate and share with others all these impressions. Often the things I see are there, not yet manifest, but waiting... to be observed, talked about, and embraced. These new insights need another approach, a more vivid curiosity... Due to fear and prejudice we prefer to see only "the official" truth - but THE OFFICIAL TRUTH IS DEAD - being dead, it has nothing to give... We can continue pretending Death is fascinating or... we can take the trouble to LIVE... THE NEW has no definition yet... Again, IT requires another "perception", the courage to apprehend everything differently, from a totally new angle, with new confidence and inquisitive touch. This blog is not about interesting concepts, it is about participation... finding new solutions, inspiration, togetherness.

    Ya, in fact to get real friendship there’s this odd “thing” called unconditioned love to be present.
