Millions of religious people think of God as their friend. They often like to think of the
higher consciousness as having subtle form, of being embodied. For example, many
Christians feel that Jesus Christ, in subtle form, an embodiment of higher consciousness,
is their friend. They feel his presence.
They can, when in a superconscious state themselves, perceive his subtle
form. They walk with him and talk with him, as the hymn says. They feel Jesus to be their
real, embraceable Lord and friend. They feel he is beside them at their work or especially
when they are in difficulty.
