When boys and girls run and play they accumulate camaraderie that sometimes lasts for a lifetime. Let it be known to you that even that friendship will end one day. Each time one incarnates, one comes into Earth life with a different personality. The soul is the same and even the mission is life may be the same but there will be variations each time one enters. We do recognize our past play- mates but it is a strong attraction, we think, from the present.
The aim in situations like this is to spoon-feed the relationship instead of running head-long into love with the person. This rushing gets one into much emotional turmoil in life. Be brave and true to your inner Guru and nurture such relationships slowly. In this way you will proceed with caution until you have learned the lessons you were meant to learn in the present. Be cautious, loving and true to your Self.
