I will focus my thoughts
We all know how a magnifying glass works. You can be out in the sun on a mildly warm day and use it to concentrate its rays, and in a few seconds you can start a fire applying it to dry leaves.
Now imagine something that does the opposite. Instead of magnifying the light, it diminishes it. This special glass takes the sun’s light, diffuses it and spreads it over a large area so the area appears as a dark shadow where little can be seen.
This correlates to a problem experienced by many seekers. Instead of focusing on one or two important things they can realistically accomplish, they use the shotgun approach, scatter their energies and tackle a dozen different objectives that sound alluring. Unfortunately, this approach usually ends with little if anything being accomplished.
The story of the tortoise and the hare also illustrates this principle. The tortoise is focused, moves slowly, but always onward toward the goal. The hare expends much more energy, but is unfocussed and moves all over the place. As we know the tortoise wins in the end, not because he was better equipped, but because he kept his eye on a single goal and moved toward it without deviation.
This concept of focus is a good principle to apply not only to goals in our everyday lives, but also toward the all-important objective of consistent soul contact. To obtain this objective the seeker must concentrate a large amount of energy, including his consciousness toward paying attention to the Spirit within.
The outward world has many competing voices, fun things to do, and material goals that can distract the inward focus of the seeker. We realize that a certain amount of attention needs to be paid to the outward world, but the successful seeker will learn to live in the world but not be of the world. After he gets the necessities of life mastered he can place many of his duties on an automatic pilot so they can function with a minimal amount of attention. Some can never relax and do this, while others program their computer brains to take care of many activities so their real attention can focus on that which is more important.
The most important lesson concerning focus that the seeker needs to absorb is that he must apply the general principle and direct energies within to maintain consistent soul contact. When he realizes this, then he (and, of course, she) has taken an important step to inner contact.
It is interesting to consider that not only will materialistic things in the outer world distract from the inner focus, but so can the many spiritual sirens who call out for our attention.
Many seekers are enamored by the many spiritual disciplines and teachers available to them and they scatter their outward attention on a half dozen or more. Even though the teachings may direct a student inward, they still come from without; and if the student is trying to master many at once, he will master none as well as have his focus diffused.
This is why many spiritual teachers insist that students focus on only one teacher. This is not because any teacher is infallible, but because they are indeed fallible and any two teachers will give the message in two different ways, even if they are saying essentially the same thing. Only the student with reliable soul contact can sift through many teachers and take the one truth out of the many. Even so, it is a good idea for all to focus on one major area of mastery and learning at a time.
Your assignment today is to reflect on successes and failures in your life and see if you can associate a one-pointed focus with your successes, and a lack of focus having too many things competing for your attention with failure. The chances are that you will see a correlation.
End with this affirmation:
“I will arrange my priorities so I can focus on the Divine Self within me.”
I will grade myself today
Irritation and impatience with others is another distraction that forces the attention outward rather than inward. Again, this largely affects the emotional self and is particularly harmful to those seeking the path of soul contact.
Those who do not seek the Path generally have their eyes projected to the outer world and irritability with others is just one more thing keeping their attention there. However, since you are studying this course you are obviously interested in establishing firm contact with the Inner Voice. To do this you must rise above this distraction, and distraction it is. For many seekers it is their major problem.
There are two things about this trait that takes the eye away from the soul. First, the problem is seen as being outside of self, which turn the eyes outward. Second, irritation over the shortcomings of others springs from a feeling of superiority. While it is true that we all have different talents, intellect and ability, we are all equal in potential. We are all children of the One God treading the path to the Presence. We are all on different points on the path, but equal in value.
Having patience with your brothers and sisters is a sign that you feel an equality with them. Their perceived shortcomings may have been your shortcoming not long ago.
Do you want your teachers to lack patience with you and be unreasonably irritated when you are doing your best?
Of course not, so you need to extend the same courtesy to other struggling souls.
Soul energy from the Higher Self is amplified when two or more see eye to eye and work in harmony. Indeed, the words of the Master are true wherein He said:
“For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” Matt 18:20
Irritation with your brother’s shortcomings is the fastest way to chase the Christ out of your midst and take your eyes away from the soul.
Working with others is difficult and the tendency of humans is to have rose-colored glasses concerning themselves and an overly critical eye toward coworkers.
Unrealized is that the impatience and irritation shown to others are usually a bigger detriment to the work going smoothly forward than are the shortcomings of one’s neighbor.
It will often be the case that those in a group who are most irritable with the shortcomings of others are the ones with the greatest problems, and, of all people, these are the ones who need to clean house first before they can accurately see into the heart of others.
The assignment today is to grade yourself on how this distraction affects you.
If you are presently in a state of mind that holds no irritation or impatience as well as being free from grievance over the flaws of others, give yourself an A.
If you are just affected once in a while by real stupidity, give yourself a B
If you think you are about average, give yourself a C.
If you consistently dwell on the shortcomings of others then you need to give yourself a D or F.
Give yourself a grade before you read on…
Now that you have given yourself a grade, find your mate or friend who knows you well and explain this lesson to them and the grade you gave yourself. Ask this person if he or she agrees with your assessment of yourself. If not why?
You may discover that your friend’s assessment of yourself is somewhat different than your own.
Reflect on this, especially if your friend sees you quite differently than you see yourself. Is there more you can do to negate this distraction?
I seek for a grateful heart
The seeker who has established soul contact has a grateful heart. Who can have anything but a grateful spirit when he basks in the spirit of inner peace and feels the love, acceptance and companionship of the inner God? A grateful heart is harmonious with the heart of God.
He who understands this will recoil at the thought of ingratitude, even when enduring many troubles in the outward world. He realizes that lack of gratitude casts a barrier between him and his companion soul and losing that companionship is a loss greater than the loss of all he has in the material world.
The wise pilgrim knows the truth of the statement that “all things work together for good to them that love God.” Rom 8:28 He knows that even when he suffers pain and distress, that he is placed in a circumstance where the end will be beneficial if he continues to listen to his inner guidance. Why, then, would he not be grateful in difficult circumstances as well as good ones since all of them are designed for his benefit?
Is not the champion athlete grateful to his coach when he puts him through painful training as well as in parties celebrating victory? If the coach is working for the benefit of the athlete, then his gratefulness and appreciation will solidify their relationship and bind them together as one.
Even so, your Divine Soul is your wise coach, and your constant appreciation will draw the Divine Presence close to you for it will see you as reaching out with grateful heart.
The seeker must seek to not only be grateful to God but to his fellow brothers and sisters as well. Did not the Master say that whatever we do to the least of our brethren we do to him? (See Matt 25:40)
If we therefore show gratefulness to others, we are essentially showing gratefulness to God.
It is easy to be grateful when someone performs a service that we like, but much more difficult if they give a harsh criticism or attack. Even in these circumstances should the person seek to find something about which to be grateful. One way is to see negative people as a part of the whole life experience that allows us to learn, grow and advance.
For today’s assignment first do your best to assess your own state of gratitude or ingratitude. Do you see yourself as more grateful than ungrateful for the ingredients in your present situation? What are the things you are grateful for right now? What is happening in your life to tempt you to be ungrateful or to feel that life is not treating you well?
Seek today to find at least one thing for which you should be grateful, but have not fully expressed or appreciated. Then in the following days add to the list until you can tell yourself that you have a heart full of gratefulness. End your contemplation with this statement:
“I am grateful for all the lessons God sends to me.”
I will give glory to God
Jesus made this interesting statement:
“Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.” Matt 6:28-29
Lilies of the field are beautiful but when we take a closer look at them through powerful microscopes we see that the words of Jesus were true indeed. Each cell in the plant has an internal organization and government that puts Solomon to shame. Even a single strand of DNA within the cell has a complexity that has baffled the minds of our greatest scientists.
Then, concerning the macrocosm, the scripture says:
“The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.” Psalms 19:1
It is enough to fill the humblest seeker with awe at divine creation to merely look up at the sky on a clear night and contemplate the beauty and vastness of the heavens. But we are fortunate to live in the age of the Hubble and other telescopes that have pierced the heavens and given us pictures that ancient man could have not imagined. Indeed, what we now see verifies the truth of the ancient Psalm.
An important step toward soul contact is to recognize the handiwork of Divine Intelligence in all creation. You would think this recognition would be obvious, but many minds of otherwise intelligent people have focused on excluding anything higher than random chance for the creation of all things.
If you were walking through a forest and stumbled across a laptop computer would you consider that it just appeared there because elements gathered by random chance to create it? No one in his right mind would do this, yet a single cell or a strand of DNA from within a lily of the field is much more complex than our computers.
It is interesting that when scientists do digs in search of ancient man and find what are very crude tools they will never consider that random erosion or shifting of the elements created them, yet they will claim that a living cell, trillions of times more complex was created with no intelligence involved.
There is one thing that science should acknowledge and that is there is intelligence and consciousness in matter.
How do we know this?
Because there are over seven billion humans on this planet who have consciousness and intelligence and they dwell in the matter of a physical body.
Is it not logical then that intelligence could dwell in the body of the universe itself by the same principle?
Not giving recognition and glory to the Creator causes two blockages to soul contact.
First, the person who denies a creator will not even attempt any contact with his Source because of lack of belief. If he does not look, he will not see.
Second, the inner Divinity, though It never deserts us, will not contact the person who does not recognize It.
Soul contact cannot be achieved without the recognition and appreciation of greater intelligence than ourselves.
The more the seeker understands and appreciates God and all His creations, the closer will he be to his own Source, his own soul.
Your assignment today is to merely pay attention to your surroundings. Look for all the beauties and intelligence in creation and exude a sense of awe for the craftsmanship that went into creation. Find a flower, a bird, a leaf, a blade of grass or even a rock and imagine the complexity of its creation. Look at your body, your hands, your feet, your skin, your eyes and try to conceive the complexity of their design. Go outside at night and look at the sky, and sense a universal presence extending through the universe.
Lastly watch this video giving you a perspective of the vastness of creation.
I will forgive seventy times seven
Peter was curious as to how far one should go with forgiveness.
“Then came Peter to him, and said, Lord, how oft shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? till seven times?
Jesus saith unto him, I say not unto thee, Until seven times: but, until seventy times seven.” Matt 18:21
Seventy times seven equals 490 times, more offenses than any one person will ever wrack up. This was merely a way for Jesus to tell his disciples to forgive without limits.
A Course in Miracles puts an interesting twist on forgiveness. It says:
“God does not forgive because He has never condemned. The blameless cannot blame, and those who have accepted their innocence see nothing to forgive. Yet forgiveness is the means by which I will recognize my innocence. It is the reflection of God’s Love on earth. It will bring me near enough to Heaven that the Love of God can reach down to me and raise me up to Him.
“He will teach you to remember that forgiveness is not loss, but your salvation. And that in complete forgiveness, in which you recognize that there is nothing to forgive, you are absolved completely.”
The Course puts an interesting twist on forgiveness by telling us that the way to forgive without measure is to realize there is nothing to forgive. This applies to ourselves as well as others.
A lack of forgiveness is strongly associated with grievances, for when an offense is registered and forgiveness does not take place, the person will hold within himself negative feelings toward his brother and, as we said, this creates a barrier to soul contact.
Students who study A Course in Miracles will often agree with the words in theory, but find them difficult in practice. After all, how can one buy into the idea that there is nothing to forgive when people do such hurtful things?
On the other hand, if the seeker can reach that state of mind where he sees nothing to forgive, then forgiving seventy times seven, or infinite forgiveness, becomes a reality.
Let us look at an example to see how the ideal should play out.
Your friend Alex stole $100 from you. Not only did you need that $100, but it hurts your feelings that a friend would do such a thing. You are very disappointed in him.
If someone were to tell you at this point there is nothing to forgive, you may have a hard time believing it, as the $100 was real as well as the hurt you feel by the betrayal of a friend.
To rise to the “nothing to forgive” consciousness the seeker must elevate his thought beyond that which is suffering the hurt, which is the emotional self. The feeling nature feels hurt over this and many other offenses, but the feeling nature is a temporary part of oneself. Our true self, which is one with the inner God, is engulfed in the higher feelings motivated by love. When the seeker focuses on the better angels of his nature, he will look beyond the vulnerable emotional self and dwell in the consciousness of the higher invulnerable self that cannot suffer offense.
Because the seeker in this consciousness cannot be offended or hurt there will never be anything to forgive.
Now switching consciousness from the lower vulnerable emotional self to the invulnerable higher loving self is easier said than done, but it can be accomplished. Like any good endeavor, it takes lots of practice.
And practice we must, for solid soul contact is impossible to one who has not forgiven in his heart and holds a grievance.
And remember, forgiveness applies to yourself as well as to others.
The assignment today is to first review your life and list three offenses that have happened that were difficult to forgive. Do they still have a residual effect? Have you let them go as if there were nothing to forgive in the first place?
Next, examine your present circumstance. Is there anyone who offends you, or that you find aggravating, or is really messing things up? Are you able to place yourself in a state of mind that sees the offense as illusion with no power?
Yes, that may be difficult to do, but it can be done.
During the next few days pay attention to all your interactions in person and on the Internet, and observe how they affect your emotional self. Contemplate any negative feelings that affect your emotional self and say: “ These feelings represent my temporary self. My true invulnerable self sees nothing to forgive.”
I will see difficult people as lions
The teaching of letting go of grievances and forgiveness is difficult for many to accept in everyday life. Forgiveness may sound like a good ideal in Sunday School class, but then when one has a real life encounter with someone who does you real harm, reality seems to settle in and many just do not think the perpetrator deserves any forgiveness at all. You suffered so he needs to suffer.
The first thing to realize is that forgiveness does not abolish justice. When you realize that justice will be done even if you do nothing to retaliate, then forgiveness becomes easier.
Let us pick one of the most hurtful things one can imagine. Suppose a criminal killed your child.
If you forgive him does this mean he will not pay for his crime? No. You can let go of your grievance against him, yet still support a reparation for only through some type of payment will he learn not to do it again. It is important to realize that even if he escapes payment through the laws of the land, the laws of karma will catch up to him. Knowing that justice catches up with everyone makes forgiveness easier. Also the seeker needs to look at justice as a means of correction rather than punishment.
“That’s well and good,” says the skeptic, “but there are several people in my life who really deserve punishment before they should even be considered for forgiveness. I just can’t let them off this easy.”
Yes, if a person is holding on to a grievance and just can’t forgive until some punishment is meted out we have a difficult situation indeed. To forgive requires a fresh way to look at the situation
Visualize a visit to the zoo with loved ones and children. A part that always brings enjoyment is the section containing lions and tigers. Does the fact that they may eat you, a loved one, or even a child cause you to have a grievance toward them?
No. You realize that they are dangerous so you only visit them when you have the proper protection.
Let us suppose that a lion escaped and before he was contained he attacked and bit you and you had to have emergency surgery. In this painful condition would you hold a grievance toward the lion? Would you even need to forgive him?
Because the lion is a wild and dangerous animal when not contained. It is just who he is.
The seeker must apply this Lion Principle to difficult people. This is just who they are. They cause problems when around you, so the best thing to do is look on them as you would a wild animal. Do your best to protect yourself from harm and enjoy them from a distance. If they break through the safety net and attack you, then you are merely dealing with a wild animal. There is nothing to forgive because it is just who they are at the moment.
Most of us are familiar with the famous Las Vegas act of Siegfried & Roy with lions and tigers. They knew the animals were dangerous, did their best to contain them, yet loved them a lot. During a standard act in 2003 a tiger named Montecore grabbed Roy by the neck and dragged him some distance, critically injuring him. As they rushed him to the hospital Roy was heard to say: “Montecore is a great cat. Make sure no harm comes to Montecore.”
Roy not only held no grievance toward the tiger and had nothing to forgive, but he still loved the cat and wanted no harm to come to it.
We must follow Roy’s attitude and apply it to our fellow humans who still have some wild animal inside of them. The instinct to attack is just in their nature and they have not yet overcome the problem. We must do our best to protect ourselves and loved ones from them, yet seeing them as we would a lion helps us to realize there is nothing to forgive, just as Roy saw there was nothing to forgive.
Your assignment today is to visualize the most irritating person in your life. If you think a few seconds a certain person will come to view. As you visualize this person say: “I see the lion in you – there is nothing to forgive. I have complete protection from all harm from you and all other wild animals.”
I see the Christ within you and within me
Jesus spoke these words, which have echoed thru the centuries:
“Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.” Matt 25:40
When most people think of this scripture they figure that those described as being in the least category are those down on their luck, like the homeless for instance. While it is important that we see the Christ in people having hard times, the principle extends further than this.
Think for a moment. Who is really the least of the brethren in your mind? Is it the homeless guy or maybe someone who has caused you a lot of grief in your life? If someone betrayed, cheated, or hurt you, then perhaps he is a lesser person in your mind than someone down on his luck.
This puts a whole new dimension on this scripture. Yes, the least person in your mind is that person who has been a thorn in your side and irritates the dickens out of you.
Even though this person may aggravate you to new heights, he is still a child of God with the spark of God within him. If you want to find the Christ and soul within yourself, you must see it within him.
A Course in Miracles calls this person your savior because he is the ultimate test to looking within. If you can look within all others and see the Christ, then you can look within yourself and see Him also.
Does this mean you have to embrace someone who is dangerous or outright insulting?
No. The last lesson on the Lion Principle comes into play here. Just like you can see the positive life of God in a lion but keep your distance, you need to do the same with some people. You can keep your distance from obnoxious people, yet still see the Christ in them and ever be ready to assist them when they are sincere about improving themselves.
Your assignment today is to again visualize the most irritating person in your life, the person who is the least of humanity in your mind and see the Christ in him. Then say these words:
“I am thankful for the opportunity to see the Christ in you so I can discover Him in myself also.”
I send goodwill to all
The seeker who passes through the barriers and contacts the inner loving God, must be loving himself. There are thee aspects to love which are:
Love is not complete until all three are embraced and practiced.
Today’s lesson is on goodwill.
We seem to live in a world where goodwill is not only lacking but deteriorating. There is an increasing division between the political left and the right, and hatred from both sides is on the increase. To withhold goodwill from a brother or sister because they have different political views is an error in judgment indeed, and sends energy that holds the clouds in place between the seeker and his soul.
If we want to commune with the inner God then we must be like God as Jesus advised:
“for he (God) maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.
“For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? And if ye salute your brethren only, what do ye more than others? do not even the publicans so?
“Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.” Matt 4:45-48
God gives out the sunshine and the rain to all no matter who they voted for, and we must do the same. And if we just show love to those who think the way we do then we are no better than the crooked publicans in the days of Jesus, for even the worst of us show goodwill to those who accept us.
We live in a time where there is hatred, anger and violence toward others who merely are deemed to have a wrong opinion. Others are trying to limit the freedom to speak anything contrary to accepted mindset. Let he who seeks the freedom of the kingdom of the soul not participate. Where others send hate, you send goodwill. Where others are angry, you be at peace. Where others threaten, you remain harmless.
In the past, religion seemed to be the central cause of division and hatred with many subjecting those with out-of-the-mainstream opinions to torture and death. While there is still some intolerance in religion, the main focus of division has shifted to politics. The reason for this is that governments have become a larger influence over our lives than is religion. Presently, religion for most is something that occurs in the background of consciousness, whereas many are now consistently focused on what government is going to do for them.
If a person thinks that an opposing view will assist in taking away what he wants from government, then he will be tempted to lean toward anger and hate instead of goodwill and love.
The seeker must seek to free himself from the outer gods of Caesar, government and religion and, standing free, he can send forth goodwill to all, for none can interfere with the freedom of the soul.
Your assignment today is to think of those with different opinions than yourself and see them as brothers and sisters. Send them positive thoughts of goodwill.
Now let us be specific. Pick the people who are furthest from your belief system from this list: Presidents Obama or Trump; Rush Limbaugh or Nancy Pelosi; Ann Coulter or Rachel Maddow. You can add to this list if you like, especially if you live outside the United States.
If hate and loathing wells up within you when contemplating some of these people, then that is a sign there is work to do to reach the soul wherein dwells the pure love of Christ.
Practice several times during the day sending goodwill to all no matter how different they may think from yourself.
PS: Be sure to include that irritating neighbor or family member.
I extend friendship to all
Friendship is the second quality expressed in the triangle of love aspects.
A good friend is indeed a pearl of great price and will be there for you for life. Many think they have found the love of their life, yet the relationship deteriorates and they separate, but the faithful friend remained. Lovers come and go, but a good friend never departs. This illustrates that when you do select a mate, pick one who will also be a friend. If you have passionate love, spiritual love plus friendship, then you have discovered a great treasure indeed.
Most of us have a handful of good friends who we trust and confide in. Such people make life a little easier and hopeful, but the principle of friendship goes beyond this.
To be a friend of God one must be a friend to all of His children. Now all of us realize that we only have time for a handful of intimate friends with whom we share time and experience, but the principle of friendship extends beyond our close relationships.
To be a friend to all does not involve barbecues and entertainment but it does mean that you are willing to be friendly to all who are willing to accept your extended hand. And like yesterday’s topic of goodwill which is extended to all, so is the hand of friendship.
The seeker who wants to pierce the veil between him and his soul must not look out into the world and divide the people into those deserving of his friendship and those who are not. Extend the hand of friendship no matter what religion, political view or personality flaws they may have.
This doesn’t mean you will spend time with them in a “best friend” situation, but merely means that you are showing a willingness to be friendly.
Now if you extend friendship, or friendliness and they reject you merely because of some personality issue such as who you voted for, then the lack of friendship is on their shoulders, not yours.
A true disciple will be friendly in season and out of season, in times of stress and peace, in times of success or failure. It is our duty as servants to extend friendship and helpfulness to all who are willing to receive.
One may wonder about the wisdom of extending friendship to dangerous or violent people.
It doesn’t matter who they are. We should be friendly to all when interplaying with them, but for some it is wise to keep one’s distance. Again, the lion principle, discussed earlier, comes into play.
Your assignment today is to pick the political person who you loathe the most. Again it could be Presidents Obama or Trump; Rush Limbaugh or Nancy Pelosi; Ann Coulter or Rachel Maddow. Pick someone with whom you disagree strongly. Now imagine meeting this person in a nice restaurant and dining with him or her. Then imagine yourself being very friendly and receiving goodwill in return. Imagine the dinner ending with you both enjoying each other’s company.
I will find my brothers
The principle of brotherhood includes not just the male sex but both of them. The word refers to a camaraderie in relationship and has been used by female spiritual teachers as well as males. Female teachers who have used the word inclusive of both sexes include Alice A. Bailey, H. P. Blavatsky, Mary Baker Eddy, Helena Roerich, Annie Besant, and Helen Schucman of A Course in Miracles fame.
Here is a quote from A Course in Miracles:
“The miracle acknowledges everyone as your brother and mine. It is a way of perceiving the universal mark of God.”
A brotherhood is created by a shared experience, belief or thinking and it comes in various degrees. In the broadest sense we are all brothers because we are all children of the One God. Because of this brotherhood we can see even difficult individuals as part of a great family who will eventually find their way home.
Many other brotherhoods exist. A sports team often has great camaraderie and brotherhood as well as a military unit. There is also strong brotherhood in close-knit religions and various groups. There is even brotherhood among groups we may consider evil such as terrorists and street gangs.
Brotherhood is a very cohesive force bound together by shared purpose and experience. Those in the brotherhood understand each other in a way that outsiders cannot.
There is another brotherhood that is not recognized by the masses because it has no visible organization. This brotherhood is composed of those who have a measure of soul contact. Shared soul contact is the ultimate brotherhood experience for most humans.
One who has achieved soul contact can recognize a brother who has had the same experience.
There are degrees of soul contact and a brother can recognize someone who has attained the same degree as himself or less. He can feel the soul stimulation from someone of a higher degree, but there may not be a full sharing or understanding.
Taking this course is a sign that you are reaching out to the soul and spirit within and most probably have felt inner guidance from time to time. This means you have a brotherhood of like minded souls out there who have gone through many of the same spiritual experiences you have.
Your assignment today is to contemplate all the people in your life and let your consciousness rest on those with who you feel spiritually compatible. Think of those who have either stirred your inner spirit because they seem further along the Path or those who are similar to yourself in consciousness. In quiet meditation link up to one, two and then three different individuals and feel the love circulate creating the wonderful feeling of brotherhood.
If you can feel the fires of love you have moved closer to full soul contact.
If possible visit with one of these individuals and renew your friendship.
