Dear one,

Who is your true friend in life? Your friend is your meditative mind that takes you to your Guru and the wisdom and grace of the Guru/Sadh Sangat. Use your meditation to gain a deep perspective of your life and your true identity. There are so many people in this world. These people are not your friends. Or, you could look at it in another way and say, when you are stronger in your meditative practice, you will have strength to be a leader and a teacher to these people, who have value only for fashion and not for Satnam right now. (True Identity).

You could say that these people are not your friends. But until you strengthen your own self, you will always be buffeted into duality by others opinions.

God bless you,

SK
