Having just returned from a trip to celebrate with my daughter on her birthday, I am hyper-aware of the blessing of family and friends. It is special to be with those who have seen us through many life-changing experiences, or who have simply known us since we were children. To be seen and known for who we really are, without judgment, is truly a gift.
Life can be quite challenging at times. It is our closet family or friends who see us through. Some spiritual traditions see God as “the friend.” The Persian poet, Rumi, had that sense of it. Many of his famous songs are in reference to “the friend” as being his constant companion.
It is not a bad way to think of God when we consider how perfectly the Law of co-creation functions in us. It does seem as if we have a friend who is constant and available to make real the wishes of our heart. Functioning as Law, of course, means “the friend” does not judge our desire but takes us at our Word and brings it about with great creativity. It is the lack of judgment that is hard for some people to accept, but think about it. Isn’t that a kind of unconditional love? Isn’t that what your best earth friend does? Why would God be any different?
Stay tuned in,
