It takes a long time to begin to see clearly and discover that if you can collect all the forces contained in the friends and attach them to yourself, this will be your spiritual vessel, the organ of spiritual sensation with which you will feel and understand the essence of life that is above the physical body and exists inside the soul. Then a person will understand the principle of “love thy friend as thyself,” directed exclusively at this higher goal. He will realize that his friends with their desires and aspirations for spirituality, for reaching the same purpose of creation, in essence, are parts of his own soul.
Everyone feels that his friend’s aspirations towards the spiritual goal are the organs of his spiritual body. That is why he understands that love of friends is a connection to their spiritual aspirations, from which each of us forms the vessels of his soul.
When everyone attains “love of friends,” collects everyone’s desire to achieve the goal, he reveals his own soul; we unite all these souls together. Thus, a mutual faithful relationship emerges that gives everyone what the other, the second, and the third has. After all, everyone is included in all the rest!
There is a difference between the original point from which I started, the root of my soul, and the rest of the desire received from the friends. But both the former and the latter are forces of my soul. The same applies to other friends: Everyone has the same forces. The only difference is that everyone relates to the rest from the position of his root, his starting point.
It turns out that we have a common vessel (desire), one network connecting us, with which we achieve the desired goal: love of friends that connects everyone together. Thereby, we reveal mutual connections, an aspiration called mutual bestowal, and the general force called the Creator. This is the essence of our life and the purpose of creation.
