Answer: We need to try to accurately discern what is causing the pain, meaning what the Creator expects from us. When a thought, desire, or intention visits us and it’s not connected to love of others, I should immediately feel the red light turn on in me!
There are thoughts, desires, and intentions where this alert signal is, at first, yellow, then orange, and finally, red as a real sign of disaster. It depends on the case.
But I should view it so as to desire looking at everything with love, and if it’s less than that, I want a red light to turn on. Then, I will see a field of red lights in front of me. This makes me understand and become aware of my real condition so that I can get a hold of myself and want to switch all these lights to green. I search for how it’s done, and thereby, I start working with the Creator.
He turns on the red light within me, and I switch it to green. While I am attempting to do so, I search for why it turned red and how to switch it. This is what our work is all about, the process we are supposed to undergo.
