Question: Do I let the Creator down when I ignore His gifts, hints, and thoughts?
Answer: Yes, although, in principle, there is no such system, but we need to think about the sorrow we cause the Creator since otherwise we will not focus on our correction properly. I must think about how to bring Him pleasure, and in order to do so, I develop certain attributes in which I can receive pleasure from the upper world.
Question: This world is an illusion, so aren’t the sufferings an illusion?
Answer: The world as we feel it now is not an illusion for us. A person lives in it in the real sense. The sufferings aren’t an illusion, either. If we fully correct our state, we would be able to say that is was an illusion, and then the Creator would also be revealed.
Question: Who created the Creator?
Answer: This question is meaningless because we don’t ascend above that level. Basically, we can say that an upper Creator created the Creator. Every level that is above us is called the Creator because it created us. This is the reason that there are many Creators, each higher than the other. We shouldn’t forget that the Creator is a force field, a property, not an image.
Question: What is a real miracle in the world of illusions?
Answer: A miracle is everything that I cannot perceive in my feelings and my mind as a real familiar phenomenon. Everything that is beyond my understating, feelings, and consciousness is called a miracle.
