A question I received: What should I do if I have been making every effort I possibly could to enter the spiritual world, but the Creator doesn’t want this to happen? How should I ask Him for it if I can’t see or feel Him?
My Answer: This is a feeling that every newcomer goes through. You feel that you are making so many actions, but receiving no reaction in return. The Creator doesn’t hear you, as though you are talking to a wall. He takes all your strength and plunges you into despair. Why is He doing this?
It’s because He wants you to discern exactly “Who is He?” particularly while you’re in the state of concealment. This is the only way you can find out who you are addressing.
The Creator is always by your side. However, you are like a radio that’s off-tune. You have to adjust yourself to the right wavelength in order to catch His broadcast. The switch of the radio is in your hands, so tune it properly! You have to constantly adjust it.
Don’t just sit there with your arms folded in your lap, uselessly waiting for something to happen and complaining about Him. Turn the radio’s handle until you find His wavelength and begin to hear Him. This is the meaning of the verse, “We shall do and we shall hear.” You can do this! And you already have the means: the group, the books, and the teacher. So, you have nothing to complain about and no one to blame, except yourself for the fact that you are too lazy to do this.
