Family Friendship

February 17, 2011

We can’t deny that there is biological continuity between generations. That continuity can be based on pride and obligation or on direct contact between people. Pride is saying: “Look what a good son I produced.” Obligation is saying: “I must relate with my father because he’s my father.” However, both sides can approach the relationship more directly. The continuity between generations is there, and you don’t have to fear losing it. It will be there in any case. It could be the basis for becoming good friends, the basis of an absolutely beautiful friendship.

From “Family Karma,” page 140 in Work, Sex, Money: Real Life on the Path of Mindfulness.
