The Friend gives a fresh, simple understanding of happiness as a state of Being, and unhappiness as a reflection of our distance from our own Being. In modern language, it shows how we have come to be separated from our own being. The Friend is both guide book and a Journey book. It teaches skills and understanding for navigating through the personality self to find the core states of Being. In the journey we find challenges, tasks, learning, and the precious inner treasures that open to our willingness to be with our self.

Zen Buddhism and western psychotherapy are currently merging in the West much as Buddhism and Taoism did in ancient China to form Zen as we know it today. Zen allows us to experience true emptiness and no-self; psychotherapy provides tools to discover the disowned aspects of our selves that act out in underhanded, covert and even perverted ways. Zen offers probably the deepest and most profound understanding of our true self; psychotherapy helps us become healthier self-actualizing individuals. Together they can enable us to include and yet transcend self and no-self and live life as the unique and true self. I recommend The Friend as a good guide book for such journeys and understanding. -- Zen Master Dennis Genpo Merzel, author of Big Mind Big Heart, Finding Your Way
Finally an emotionally intelligent guide for all of us who seek to befriend ourselves, and others in the process. Nishant Matthews offers us an extremely powerful (yet never invasive)wise and inspiring way to come to understand our body, heart and soul, and how they work together. `The Friend' is at the same time an extraordinarily readable journal of a quest for our universal oneness and eternal innocence. -- Caroline Beumer-Peeters, co-author of "Parents' Skills" (a guide for solution focused parenting based on "Kids' Skills"), co-author of the Dutch version of Mission Possible and author of "Mission Possible, manual for coaches
