QUALITY OF FRIENDSHIP
It is nice to have good friends. Life would be so flat without kalyana mittas (noble/spiritual friends).
How rare it is to have a friend.
Dear friend, I don’t have many friends left. So I value whatever friends I still have.
To have a friend is one of the most wonderful experiences in life. To develop a deeper and deeper understanding of oneself and the world is also very wonderful. For me understanding is the most satisfying thing in life.
There is no time and space in our friendship.
I have made many new friends with whom I can relate to; I don’t expect anything from them: just open-hearted, free-flowing communication.
Yes, I also have “deeper cravings for some kind of sincere companion”.
I want my relationship with you, with him, with my daughters/sons, with my former/present wife/husband to be a nurturing, nourishing relationship.
Relationships with people are not really reliable in most cases. Most relationships are just games. An honest, open, sincere, genuine, non-manipulative, non-domineering relationship, where there is mutual respect and trust, and which does not have unrealistic expectations – is such a relationship possible?
