Answer: It means that the lower one doesn’t feel it as the upper any more. Now he has a choice: either to remain under the impression that the upper one has lost all meaning for him or to work in faith above reason in order to reinforce the greatness of the upper one in his eyes. This is where our freewill is.
Freewill is only when there is concealment. This is how the Creator treats us, and this is how we have to see all the friends by understanding that they are under concealment with regard to us. It’s only me who sees the deficiencies in them, since “one judges according to his own flaws.”
So I have freewill here: Do I treat them as the greatest in our generation? If I do, I fulfill my free will. If I acknowledge them as great, the upper one will raise His AHP and me together with them. Thus I will ascend!
