Question: When will it be possible to say that a person is working with “three lines”?
Answer: We have still to arrive at this work, and then we will learn it thoroughly. In its simple, general form, it is possible to say that man simultaneously is able to be found in both a feeling of the greatness of the goal and also in the lowliness of self in that he is acquainted with all of his ego at the same time and also annuls it. All of this connects together, and above all these states, he is in a state of examinations with the Creator, in that he justifies and thanks Him.
But in the meantime, these are just words and one needs to attain the feeling of the phenomenon. And here it is impossible to jump above the levels. It is impossible to reach a sensation through someone else’s words. One needs to slowly “chew” it, so that it will begin to enter us, and we will begin to absorb these states in that we will begin to gradually feel the inner movements. And then, at the end, it will be revealed as a shared feeling of a certain amount of data that in total will be called the “middle line.” We need to make this happen.
This is why we discuss these states in the group, in order to accelerate their approach. Everything depends on that, on how much this goal will constantly be in front of our eyes to that extent we awaken each other, and that it won’t let us rest day or night.
If a person awakens alone, on his own, it isn’t enough. It is said that he received “an awakening from above.” But if he receives an awakening from the group, that is already good. That is exactly what is needed. And when he awakens alone, that is simply a present from above, which isn’t so useful for his advancement.
