- True Friendship-

Your friends are your needs answered;
They are your field which you sow
With Love and harvest with thanksgiving

Friends provide drink and sustenance
When you suffer with hunger and thirst

When friends speak their minds you fear not;
Saying "No", nor withhold saying "Yes"

When friends are silent;
Your heart need not cease listening to their heart

Without words, in friendship, all thoughts, all desires,
All expectations are born and shared, with joy unbound

Let there be no purpose in friendship save
The deepening of your spiritual connection

Always give the best of who you are and what you have to friends,
As it is for them to fill your needs, not just your emptiness

Seek not friends for hours to kill, rather for hours to live;
For within friendship there is laughter, mirth and pleasure

When parting from friends, grieve not;
For that which you love most in them may
Be clearer in their absence

Remember;
friendship as with love seeks nothing save disclosure of its own mystery

"True friendship"
Is found in the smallest acts of love and kindness
