Spiritual partnership is a partnership
Between equals with the aim of spiritual
Growth. Friendships aren’t spiritual because friends don’t
Want to rock the boat which is the reason they won’t
Help you get past the surface of your rationale
That’s afflicted. In essence, they don’t give a rip.
Friends will try to console, empathize, and relate
To your issues. They’ll try to make you feel better
When you’re not feeling happy. But they’ll never try
To get down to the nitty gritty and ask why
You’ve allowed your illusion of fear to fetter
Your spirit and the will within you to create.
A spiritual partner will help you look at
Where your bad experiences are coming from.
They won’t say, “Things will get better so don’t worry.”
A spiritual partner is likely to be
An annoyance at times and you may hate them some.
Sometimes friendships and marriages don’t go for that.
Friends will huddle together to keep from being
Buffeted by the winds. Spiritual partners
Want to know where the wind comes from. Never are they
Critical or judgmental. In truth they will stay
In compassion which is what the hurt soul prefers.
Spiritual partners aren’t always agreeing.
