Question: What is “a spiritual birth in the desert?” I feel a kind of disappointment from the previous conventions since we reach a special feeling of unity there, and then the fall comes. How can we use this feeling of disappointment as preparation for the convention?
Answer: We have to give birth to our first connection in the desert. This spiritual birth is the first revelation of our connection in the upper system, like a person who is born into the world, into the spiritual world.
Do you know when a person reaches the first level? When he is told: “You won’t get anything” and he is happy about it. So I don’t understand what disappointment is. The spiritual ascent is above all human disappointments; it is a spiritual attainment. You should be happy that you don’t have anything, and what is more, that the others have received everything and you haven’t. This is called being at the entrance to the first level.
So there is no room for disappointment!
