A question I received: You said that if a person properly unites the qualities and traits that are present in him, he reaches perfection. What is this unification?
My Answer: There are two natural forces in man: the desire to receive and the desire to bestow, which correspond to the quality of the created being and the quality of the Creator. We need to unite them properly and equalize them!
Initially our desire to receive acts only for its own sake. Equalizing it with the desire to bestow does not mean changing it, but rather changing its implementation. The desire to receive remains, but its implementation needs to be changed from “for one’s own sake” to “for the sake of others.”
In this way, the desire to receive becomes similar to the Creator’s desire to bestow, and a person reaches the quality and the level of the Creator – the sensation of the desire in a new implementation of eternity and perfection.
