Answer: I have to see the Creator and not people in the influence of the environment on me. When this happens, it will be possible to speak about my response. It is the first condition and the most important one, and afterward it is much easier. Of course there are difficult accounts expected later on too, but first I have to reveal whom I have this account with!
The account is only with Him, and there is none else besides Him. He influences me through all the people that surround me, through the whole world and even through me internally. He doesn’t influence my animal body but my point in the heart.
Everything that happens in my body, in all my desires, everything that I feel inside me and on the outside, everything that happens from people who are close to me or who are distant, from friends and from strangers, is all aimed at my point in the heart through the different circles around me; it is all the Creator’s influence on me.
Everything else is not taken into account, since the Light only needs this spiritual spark in which it wants to receive a response from me—that I should reach it.
First, I have come to the decision that everything that I receive from the inside and from the outside doesn’t matter, no matter what. I have to locate only that single inner point, and everything else is just a bridge, a passage, from the Creator to me.
If you hold on to this thought all day—that the Creator influences your point in the heart, and that there is nothing else but that—then we can continue to explain further…
