This seminar, held in April 2011, discusses how neediness prevents our being fully present to another. The belief that we need something external to fill what is lacking in us is the bedrock of the special relationship, wherein others exist only to meet our needs. We call our special partners beloved when they do, believing the relationship is an intimate one. True intimacy, on the other hand, comes when we join with the Beloved in the mind, our one need being to choose Him. Our focus, therefore, should never be on what is outside us, but always on our journey inward, where the Beloved awaits us as our Friend.
Make no illusion friend, for if you do, it can but take the place of Him Whom God has called your Friend. And it is He Who is your only Friend in truth. He brings you gifts that are not of this world, and only He to Whom they have been given can make sure that you receive them. He will place them on your throne, when you make room for Him on His.
