Answer: Yes, but it doesn’t only apply to us, but to the whole world. After all, it is all one system. If at our level (which is higher than that of the rest of the world) we try to draw our spiritual parts closer to unity, in so doing we will also bring the material parts, meaning people, to unity between them.
Indeed, there are no people, and there is no unity or rupture between them. These are the same souls, only they picture themselves and the connection between them from the viewpoint called “this world.” Everything that you see is the same very souls in the same network, only they perceive themselves and the web of connection between them as our illusory world.
Therefore, if we aspire to build this connection, being within this common system with them, only at a higher level of awareness and understanding, naturally this will impact everyone else.
