Question: How is it possible to get the feeling that through cooperation with another person I am giving the Creator satisfaction?
Answer: For this we need to imagine that behind every friend, behind the group, is found the Creator, that “there is none else besides Him,” and that all of our relationships are in fact with Him and not with anyone else, and only the picture of the world confuses me.
People are sitting in front of me now. I need to feel in this that I am linked with them; I am linked with the Creator. The more that I behave in regard to them in a cleaner and more direct form, the more strongly I nullify myself in regard to them, the more strongly I nullify myself in regard to the Creator. On the other hand, the more that I try to bestow to them correctly, to bring them to that state, then I will be more like the Creator. That is to say, I need to relate to them either as being greater than I (upper) or as smaller than I (lower), and I am myself always found in the middle, between these and those.
