Question: How do I come closer to the friends, where does it all start?
Answer: It all starts with the recognition of the need, of the fact that you definitely need to come closer to them. If you do not feel a common inner connection with them, then there is no point for you to continue your movement toward the Creator. First, you must establish a heartfelt connection with your friends, that is, the connection in the depths of your heart.
In this common heart, you aim to the Creator and want to feel Him more so that He would fill you.
