(3) '''Friend:''' Those counted as friend of the master enter by invitation—“Henceforth I call you no more servants but friends”<ref>John 15.</ref>—into a relationship as companion and co-worker, bearing increased responsibilities for the master’s path as world saviour. The friend bears the cross as well as the burden of light of the master; he demonstrates the qualities of friendship as in the life of Abraham and other chelas who have risen to a level of understanding the very heart and the experience of the master—providing comfort, consolation, advice, and support out of loyalty to both the purposes and the person of the master.

(4) '''Brother:''' The degree of brother is the level where the oneness of the Guru-chela, Alpha-Omega relationship is complete through the horizontal figure-eight exchange heart-to-heart; the Guru has actually made his disciple a part of his own flesh and blood and offered to him the full momentum of his attainment and portions of his [[mantle]] and authority in preparation for the master’s ascension and the disciple’s assuming of the part or whole of the master’s office. This is the love relationship exemplified between Jesus and [[John the Beloved|John]], his Mother, [[Mother Mary|Mary]], and perhaps his own flesh-and-blood brother (or cousin) James.
