YOUR BEST FRIEND
So He says that He is happy with your relation to Him not of a chela (disciple) but of a friend, a dear child. He says, "If you truly take Me as a friend then take Me as your best Friend; if you truly take Me as a Father then take Me as your parents both Father and Mother."
If you really do that then there is no need to say, "Yes, yes," and mean, "No, no." Your devotion as a friend and child will automatically and naturally mean "yes" in heart and outwardly as well.
