Care About The Creator As About A Friend

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: What else is there to do after it has already become clear that everything depends only on the Light that Reforms?

Answer: That is, from now on I only look at how to awaken and to attract the Light to me more. I understand that this is the only remedy, and I am a sick man lying unconscious and depend upon this Light one hundred percent. Each and every moment that I abandon this Light, I am dying, and as long as I am held within it, I continue to live. I live within this feeling.

Question: But what can continuously hold us in a feeling like this?

Answer: Fear! Fear that the Light will leave me. It is very important for me to be healthy, to advance through the power of bestowal. This becomes my eternal concern, a real obsession.

I feel myself in a field of forces that shakes me all the time, agitating like waves in the sea, unable to relax. The group must provide me with a field like this. A person cannot do anything by himself.

First and foremost, a mutual feeling in the group like this is imperative for us, where we depend upon the Upper Light, the help of the Creator; we must awaken this all the time. That is how we transform the path of “in its time” (Beito) to the way of “I will hasten it” (Achishena). This is the realization of mutual guarantee.

Question: Where exactly is the freedom of choice of a person? Through which actions does he attract the Light to himself?

Answer: I must yearn for the Light that Reforms and to be integrated into a group so that it will hold me in a connection with the Light and in anticipation that with the help of the Light, I will change myself and will begin to be concerned about the Creator. In the meantime, I don’t know what giving contentment to the Creator is, but at least I begin to be care about Him as about a friend.
