In our world there is only one teacher, guide, and Rav—the Creator. There is no one else! The Creator, the upper positive force, manages everything and creates the relatively negative egoistic force.
All the others are participants in this process no matter what role they play. They are sorted only according to the state relative to that teacher—how much they understand Him and carry out His way or the opposite. Only this reflects their state and indicates their level.
I call myself a guide because I try to explain to people how I understand my spiritual teacher and how I understand the teacher, the Creator. I teach people how to find the way to the upper force.
In general, I believe that any person in our world has no other mission than this because the most important thing is to understand how he is associated with the Creator because He manages everything.
Being connected with the Creator is only possible through a group, a ten, with more connections, with greater reciprocity, of dissolving itself in others and drawing inward by absorbing all into itself.
This is the way we should go. And then you will find the teacher, the guide, the friend, and the Rav in one person.
