Question: How should I react to sensations that appear as a result of the Creator’s actions?
Answer: They are the outcome of contact with the Upper Light, with the Creator. But again, one should remember that the Creator is unchangeable and only I change, as a result of the Reshimot (informational genes) unfolding in me one after the other.
Therefore, I can only exert effort in having the Reshimot change. By doing so, I expedite their development and see it as desirable. I am not against my development; I am all for it, although I realize that it isn’t easy and requires effort, as in any development. I am willing to do it.
How do I develop then? I do it by engaging in the group. With the help of the group, I start realizing the importance of my development; they give me strength to bear it. This is what we call awareness of the goal. After all, if the goal is great in my eyes, I am ready for it despite my body’s resistance. The importance gives me strength.
If I really incorporate myself into my friends’ desire, then I have no problem accelerating my development. I don’t advance by way of suffering, when because of my disparity with the awakened Reshimo it causes me pain.
