From the book The Light and the Sun: Most important in the gathering is that all are unified together and ask only for one thing—to find the Creator. And may everyone listen to his friend, and be small in his own eyes, and desire to hear something from the friend—how to serve the Creator and how to find the Creator.
It is necessary to make a distinction: There is I, there is the goal, the Creator, and there is a means of achieving it, our gathering, our unity. There is nothing else. Consequently, the means is as important as the goal because it leads me to the goal.
Everything depends on the realization of the importance of the goal. That is why we must constantly talk and think about it, raise it in our eyes. The realization of the importance of the goal is where it is revealed how much I can invest into it, to what extent we can work against our egoism.
The question is where my expectations are, where my eyes are turned: upwards or downwards? Towards the Good that Does Good or towards evil? Where am I heading? Everything depends on the realization of the importance of the goal that I take from the group.
And the problem is that this importance is not yet “spread” among the friends. The situation has undoubtedly improved, but the air between us is not “ringing” yet, not “sparkling,” not “charging” me….
I have to help the group, sparing no efforts, and when I am not able, I will be “nourished” by it.
