Question: If “there is none else besides Him,” where is the point of applying our efforts and how do we not sink into the temptation to explain the reluctance to make efforts by the fact that everything comes from the Creator? From time to time, this motivation appears in the group.
Answer: This happens because people forget that one half comes from the Creator and the other half from us. From top to bottom, we get everything from the Creator. He shapes our attitudes, thoughts, connections between us, as well as everyone’s character and education, absolutely everything. Now consider what we do with it in order to strive for the Creator because He can be felt only through the connection with the rest of humanity because it’s the same mass in which He is revealed.
