It is difficult to stay focused on your “friend” with same intensity every day. Some days life gets in a way and you may get distracted.
This is perfectly normal. Life is not a straight line. Recovery is not a straight line. There are ups and downs.
In such days of distress, again, it is important to communicate with your “friend”, no matter what. Use your “friend” as your guide through life. Ask Him for true perspective of your life situation, so you can penetrate through illusions of your ego based mind.
After all, your “friend”, is divine representative of your soul, your essence.
