Answer: After working with the public do you feel the compulsion to connect? Do you feel that without connection between you, you have no strength to work with the public? Do you feel how much you need the support of the friends during the lessons for the wider circles of the population?
If you have a feeling like this, then you are working correctly. If there is no feeling like this, then it is a problem; then you are not involved with integral upbringing and education, but are simply fooling yourself. You must feel the group within you all the time, its center, its help, the Creator, that you want to reveal. Only in this way will you become conductors of the Light and able to influence the public that will agree with you and follow you.
But you need to feel the importance of the link with the group, with its center, with the Creator, within this center, as well as the fact that you are working specifically from this connection.
