It is impossible to check and judge our states according to our feelings. A pregnant woman may not feel so good sometimes, but does she want to abort? On the contrary, she wants to continue! The goal is to be a mother, to have a child and hold the baby in her arms, and that compensates and justifies all the pain and discomfort that she feels.
The body suffers; the whole period of pregnancy and giving birth is not easy and may be tragic, dangerous, and critical. If an alien from outer space who knows nothing about our life on earth would see this, he would be shocked by the torture the poor woman is being put through, but we are happy and delighted by the whole process of pregnancy and the birth of a baby.
We are advancing towards the birth of a new level, so what do we lack in order to be glad in every state? We should see “Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of my adversaries,” as it says in Psalms 23: “my enemies,” who are in me so that they will see it. I don’t want to reassure them by that and vice-versa, rather, to tease them and to praise the goal.
If you don’t feel a greater impression than you felt yesterday, it means that you lack the support of the group. The whole group lacks the force of unity in order to empower each individual and everyone together, in order to survive the current state.
