Consider, however, that the state of higher consciousness
involves ultimately becoming a loyal and trusted friend of higher consciousness itself.
Are you friendly to the idea of higher consciousness? Do you truly have room for this
reality in your active life? Can you put the interests of your quest ahead of your selfish
tendencies or bad moods regularly? Are you willing to share your concerns and your
delights with your dawning inner wisdom?
Not only do you become a friend to higher consciousness, fellow students, and the
awakening companion, you become a conscious friend of all. You're proceeding, as you seek
higher consciousness, toward being an excellent companion, a pleasure to be with. You are
getting free of negative moods, sharp words, and cruel thoughts. You are, in becoming more
conscious, a clear and living example of what a friend really is.
What is stronger than your will power?...
