The nature of Friendship
What is a friend?
We are all different. We are each in different places on our evolution journey.
A friend seeks to understand our inadequacies and accepts them to the point where the relationship is sustainable but provides an environment that both pushes and pulls us toward resolution.
The extent to which the balance of acceptance rejection is sustainable is determined by their available resources which is in turn determined by their own inadequacies and the investment they are either willing or able to allocate.
Collectively our investment in our friendships is also an investment in ourselves, our karma and our world.
If you believe there is no life after death and that our legacy is our children, our friends and the planet then investment in these areas is paramount in determining our legacy to the world, perhaps this is the very definition of life?
