Question: What should a person do if he tries to participate in everything, but he can’t always be with the group physically?
Answer: If a person wants to be with the group but cannot do so, it isn’t his fault.
Suppose I was called to serve in the army while the group is holding a convention. There is nothing I can do about that.
When another force dominates me, which of course, is also arranged by the Creator, I cannot do anything about it, I will obey. The upper providence operates on me this way, against me.
If I obey it, I don’t lose anything if I don’t participate in the convention. But this is true only if I really have done everything to be there, but because of the circumstances I cannot, because the Creator surrounds me on all sides.
At the same time, a person has to say: “I don’t accept this, but I will still be connected to the friends as much as I can. I submit to the circumstances that You have put me in, which means that being in this state is the best thing for me.”
We must agree with the Creator! But only after very serious clarification, and not by looking for different excuses to justify myself.
