Only when we befriend our own mind do we realize that true friendship begins with friendship with the self. The closer you come to your real Self, the calmer you become, the calmer you become clarity happens to your mind, and with mind free of clutter you can see and feel the subtle vibrations of the universe, the music in the atoms and molecules. Then you no longer judge anyone and you have the whole world as your bosom friend. Million hands to support you, you need nobody’s shoulders to cry anymore for you have a mind which is ever vibrant with the Joy of the Spirit.
