Question: If everything comes to us through the group, then why is it that when we have material problems, we have to work on them and try to solve them? If you’re sick, then you have to go to a doctor. Why isn’t it enough to simply turn to the group and have it help you on the inner level?
Answer: We are not yet at the level of being able to solve all the problems through the connection with the group. However, in reality it really should work that way. You are asking a very fair question: Why is it impossible to solve all the problems with the help of the Light that Reforms? Why can’t we turn to the group, concentrate a powerful desire there, and let it happen by acting directly upon the Light, the Source of life?
Once, when I had an extremely painful ulcer, Rabash made me sit next to him and study. I could not bear the pain so I was unable to sit there and delve into the text and the intention. I could not overcome the pain and attract the force that would soothe my pain, and perhaps it would have cured it altogether.
Without a doubt, it was my own fault for being so weak. That is why I couldn’t do it and attract the Light when I was right next to my teacher, when we sat and studied together. Since he offered for me to do this, it meant that I was able to! But at that moment I could not.
Returning to your question, once we have a large group, then we will not need any external means or medicines to solve any issues! Medicine acts on the bodily level, whereas we will be able to act directly to fulfill the desire that perceives a lack of fulfillment, experienced as illness or pain. We won’t just be curing the body, but using it as a reason to cure the soul.
