A friend who has turned against you and become an enemy can be met in a better way. Instead of getting angry or resentful for his unkind words or actions, try to turn him over benevolently to the higher power. If you succeed in entering the Stillness for a period with your last thought being such a wish for him, this will be, in the end, more effective. It will make it possible for his attitude to be modified and for your own hurt feelings to calm down. The more you forget him in the Stillness, the better the result will be for both of you.
