Best: Wandering Thought #58

Wandering Thought #58: Best

We can only do our best to be others’ good friends… for what else can we do, than to offer the best of our friendship, to be there for others in their times of need? To be a truly good friend however, never hope for anything in return – not even the reciprocation of our good friendship with good friendship. In this way, even if not everyone truly befriends us, we can still truly befriend everyone. (This is called ‘unconditional great loving-kindness’ in Buddhism – 无缘大慈.)
