The Light Will Illuminate The Next Step

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: What should we do in order to not miss any opportunity to act independently?

Answer: You can identify such opportunities only in the environment. I constantly look for how to improve and be useful to the environment, to the world. If I yearn for that, I get the opportunities.

If a person is passive and thinks that there is nothing he can do, he will not identify the opportunities he is given. But if he pressures himself and looks for how to do good and be helpful, he finds the opportunities. It is just as we disseminate now in many countries, participate in book fairs, and organize workshops in workplaces and in people’s homes.

We are on a constant search and we don’t know what tomorrow will bring. I emphasize this on purpose, so that you will learn to feel that way. It is the Upper Light that has to illuminate everything and show us the right way for today and for tomorrow.

I don’t know what will happen in the future and I don’t want to know. Such a desire is already a sign of the ego. If you want to bestow, you should do it right now and right here. Do your utmost wherever you can. This is called bestowal. If you calculate things and think that perhaps not now, perhaps later, it isn’t bestowal anymore.

Do everything today and then the Upper Light will arrive according to your state and will give you the mind and the heart to understand what your next step should be. This is how it is.
