Question: How can the group awaken me?
Answer: This is part of our mutual guarantee. I must feel that if I don’t awaken them, they will not do the same for me.
This is actually the problem: Why do we fall asleep and not advance, lagging behind the world? Instead of carrying the world behind us to correction, we are waiting for the world to discover its illness, the shattering, more and more.
If a close relative, someone who is very dear to you, your child, were seriously ill, and he felt worse from day to day, would you wait tranquilly until he were in a fatal condition? Wouldn’t you look for a cure for him in every possible way? Wouldn’t you do anything to find a way to convince him to take the remedy?
Do you also worry about the world this way? If not, then you are not fulfilling your job. The group doesn’t awaken you, and you are not awakening the group.
