Question: Sometimes we feel totally down. Is it possible with the help of our mutual guarantee to always keep us from falling below a certain threshold?
Answer: We can help one another in some way, but still it depends on the state of a person. I may read some article and be impressed to tears and a cat resting next to me will be dozing or looking at me without any understanding of what is happening to me. In a similar way we go through the same states: one time as a crying human being and another as a cat without any understanding.
We have to justify all these states and accept them as necessary ones. The only question is our attitude toward them and how we use them. Therefore, one can experience any descents. We only have to use every way to prepare ourselves for them in order to not fall into a completely dead state. We still have to manage to carry on at least in something and at the same time try to come out from this fall. We have to build a safety belt that will not allow us to fall below a certain level.
