A question I received: Words like “mutual balance” and “mutual guarantee” are very beautiful and admirable. However, it’s not clear what they mean. Could you explain it using specific examples?
My Answer: Balance in Nature means that all are equal and everything belongs to all, including the land and everything it holds (such as oil, gas, ore, water, and so on). Balance is when everyone has an equal attitude toward the consumption of Nature’s resources.
It is necessary to maintain this balance when consuming from Nature: every person must receive only the things he needs to lead a normal life. In addition, people should not produce anything that isn’t necessary for the existence of their animate bodies. Any excess is harmful and contrary to the law of Nature’s balance.
Among people, the law of balance is properly expressed when each person receives according to his essential needs, his natural necessities. And we are not equal in this regard, since every person has different innate qualities and needs.
Nature or the Creator has made us different on purpose, in order for us to sense each other’s needs, desires and thoughts. It is in order for us to develop a desire to feel the souls of others, to sense their inner essence and their desires. Then, if you want to achieve an equal supply of resources for all, you will have to sense the people around you the same way you sense yourself. Only then will we be able to become cells of one body.
