While it would be pleasing to report this young man's devotion to his
ideal ultimately saved the group, welding it into a harmonious gathering again, the
super-verbal ones actually left the group after several weeks and the more humble ones

companionship can steal your mind away. It can make you insensitive to love and your
potential. But, on the other hand, companionship can flower and blossom into lifelong
friendships and much mutual accomplishment.
Enough said about the killer of young devotees: negative
companionship which so strongly influences your moods, attitudes, actions,

constructive companions. Be alert when associating with negative or self-destructive
people; don't let them bowl you over mentally or emotionally.
Companions are not always people...
