445. Three friends

My Lord, I have thousands of friends;
Of course, that includes You.

Now tell me, please,
How many friends do You have?

“Son, I have only three regular friends:
World-love is My one-half friend,
World-devotion is My one full friend,
World-surrender is My one-and-a-half friend.

“If I have not miscalculated,
Then I have three friends.
Son, this is, of course, excluding you.”
