Question: If a person loses his wallet with all his money and documents in it, it is only a corporeal problem and he has to order another ID according to this world’s laws. Internally I try to remember that there is none else besides Him and that it comes from the same force, but how is that related to the work with the group, so everything will go through it? How does my lost wallet relate to the center of the group and my connection with the friends?
Answer: I try to constantly be in the center of the group, with the environment and with the whole world, and I try to bring everything that happens to me in my corporeal life through the center of the group where I am internally together with the Creator. Eventually, I also begin to see spirituality in all these corporeal actions.
I see that in all the corporeal actions I actually encounter angels, which means forces, that help me in different ways: they oblige me to lose a wallet or to find it, etc. I see and understand that all these actions direct me to something else, to something new. Thanks to the lost wallet I reach certain people, talk to them, and perform different actions with them, and perhaps establish connections with them that are actually a great correction that I had to make.
If I constantly adhere to the right intention doing whatever is necessary in this case, which is “not to be condemned and not to be praised,” it is a necessity and I am obliged to fulfill it in every corporeal action, and by that I raise all my corporeal actions to holiness. Then I see that these aren’t corporeal actions at all. I perform them with my hands and my feet, but who has managed my hands and my feet? The spiritual force!
Did I do it by myself? No. First I thought that I performed the actions, but it turns out that the Creator performed them. In such an adhesion, I disappear on the one hand, but on the other hand, it is the outcome of all my efforts.
