Ask any Catholic nun that
is, almost any nun about her relationship with the Lord. If she is willing to
share, she will charm you for hours describing "her" beloved Jesus. She may
also, perhaps, confide her concern for many priests who seem to relate to God in an
abstract manner and who talk about the Holy Spirit as if hes not a person. Jesus is
friend, husband, and Lord to many nuns.
For some people, the natural outgrowth of their
quest for higher consciousness is a sense of a personal friend to friend relationship. For
others, its just not conceivable and other possibilities seem more appropriate.
In the friend to friend relationship, both friends are important. The give-and-take is
extremely valuable to the friendship. Although the higher consciousness is so much more
aware, able, and infinitely more beautiful at least it seems so to the new friend
both must contribute. Both must also be themselves. Both friends are essential to
the relationship. Friendship cannot be one way.
