ON LOVE, ON FRIENDSHIP
I believe true friendship is as rare as true love in life, actually they are very similar and close to each other.
In general people gather for convenience and for circumstance. Any kind of convenience can be considered and they may vary to the infinite, even the fear of being alone can create convenience.
Circumstances are external, you have to live and share time with someone because of blood ties, because of work, common activities, studies, a trip, same group of people that hang with your friends, etc…
Van Gogh – El campo de trigo
For many times, a couple relationship is also kept under these conditions, much more than because of love, pleasure, affinity or friendship. The birth of unexpected children or even the attempt to avoid divorce, financial dependence or interest, appearance, status, accomodation, fear, are fertile fields for convenience and circumstance.
Convenience and circumstance gather people, create opportunities, make events and offer some sort of exchange of knowledge, learning together and development of the personality. They are definitely important and necessary for life in society.
Nevertheless, the level of affinity, synchronicity, and connection achieved through them is still poor and superficial, more mental or solely affective than energetic or spiritual.
Personally I don’t call these interactions as friendship, I prefer to name them camaraderie. We can have countless colleagues during life. And we learn a lot with them.

True love and true friendship are totally different, they are born when you EXTINGUISH, when you PULVERIZE CONVENIENCE AND CIRCUMSTANCE.
There is no sort of vain interests, there is no sort of obligation to follow together with another soul.
TRUE LOVE AND TRUE FRIENDSHIP are equally characterized by deep affinity and similar level of comprehension;
mutual, nurturing love and care;
the pleasure of sharing time together;
the spontaneity of the encounter
And THE ONLY REAL BENEFIT THAT CAN COME FROM HUMAN INTERACTION – AWARENESS.
THESE SOULS GENERALLY FOLLOW TOGETHER FOR MANY LIVES AND THEY KEEP ON REENCOUNTERING AND REDISCOVERING ONE ANOTHER LIFE AFTER LIFE, BECAUSE SYNCHRONICITY, SPONTANEITY, AFFINITY, LOVE AND AWARENESS JOIN THEM TOGETHER.
Van Gogh – Campo de coelhos
You may have thousands, millions, zillions colleagues, even long term colleagues and associations, some lovers, during your many lives, BUT SOUL MATES AND TRUE FRIENDS ARE SO RARE, YOU COUNT THEM WITH YOUR FINGERS. THEY ARE FEW AND RARE.
I have always believed that TO BE ABLE TO FIND YOUR SOUL MATE OR TRUE FRIENDS IS A GIFT WE RECEIVE FROM THE UNIVERSE, A GIFT OFFERED TO FREE SOULS.

FREEDOM IS VERY IMPORTANT IN THIS ACHIEVEMENT, BECAUSE IT DEPENDS ON EXTINGUISHING OR PULVERIZING THE REAL DEMONS OF CONVENIENCE AND CIRCUMSTANCE.

IN BUDDHISM, THEY ARE CALLED THE DEMONS OF CONVENIENCE AND CIRCUMSTANCE.
If you become attached or defined by them, they come to represent slavery, and you are a hostage of convenience, interest and circumstance, trying to make other hostages just like you.
You are not having any effective advantage, IT IS DELUSION, IT IS DISTRACTION, AT MAXIMUM IT IS BUSINESS, IT IS TEMPORARY, AND IMPERMANENT.
ON YOUR TRUE PATH IN LIFE,
ON YOUR GENUINE JOURNEY OF A BRAVE MAN, OF A BRAVE WOMAN,
WHO IS SEEKING FOR SELF DEVELOPMENT, FOR AWARENESS,
FREED FROM FEARS, CONVENIENCES, INTERESTS, ACCOMODATION, AND CIRCUMSTANCES,
THEN YOU WILL BE ABLE TO STUMBLE AND FALL IN THE ARMS OF YOUR SOUL MATE, OF YOUR LOVES, OF YOUR TRUE FRIENDS IN THIS AND OTHER LIVES.

Art is to console those who are broken by life.

MAYBE LOVE SHOULD BE A COMMON PLACE
BUT IT IS NOT
LOVE IS A MIRACLE
