Our desire was created as existence from absence, which means that it exists only because of the force of existence in it. The force that stems from the Creator gives the desire life and builds the opposite form in it.
Question: How can these two forces stay together?
Answer: The one Force sustains the two of them so that the created being could exist, so that there will be something besides the Creator. He constantly sustains our being since without it, we simply wouldn’t exist.
Just think of how the term “existence from absence” sounds: Existence is being sustained above nonexistence, above nothing.
Question: How is this expressed in the group among individuals who are starting to unite?
Answer: They only have to take the connection between them into account. Nothing else is relevant to their force and their abilities; nothing can be changed except a prayer for the connection.
When they feel that everything depends on their mutual connection, it is already a good clarification. Then, as a result, they sign a treaty of mutual guarantee.
Question: But the ego doesn’t disappear and isn’t annulled, is it?
Answer: Yes, it grows. How can these tow forces exist without one another? How can one be measured without the other?
We think that love and hate can exist independently and that love by itself is enough. But it isn’t so; even when you love someone very much, you suddenly discover that some “spice,” some roughness is missing so that you will have a true contact and a real connection. The feeling of connection is always composed of the negative and the positive that covers it. Otherwise there is no connection. A connection can only be between two distant opposites and and it lies namely in between them.
