Question: What should we demand from the convention so afterwards we won’t hear you say, “Why didn’t you ask?”
Answer: We must constantly think about how we are already imagining this special state and how we are aspiring to realize it at the convention, completely forgetting about the world for three days.
We have to leave everything behind and close the door behind us in order to find ourselves truly on the next level. This requires the most serious preparation: I study articles, go to lessons, work in dissemination, and no matter what I do, all of it is preparation. I am constantly driven by the anticipation, the expectation that something is about to happen.
We have to arrive to the convention as though we’re arriving to our redemption. I can’t wait for it and I think I will simply explode if it doesn’t happen.
