Question: It is a well-known fact that our mind can depict certain images and figures. Based on this, you can convince yourself with regard to anything and sometimes it seems that you have exited yourself and felt a spiritual feeling.
How can we avoid deluding ourselves and falling into self-pride? How can we discover whether what we feel is indeed a spiritual attainment?
Answer: There is no way you can do it. Only the group can save you from such situations. When you nullify yourself with regard to others, when you connect to them and help everyone else, you balance yourself, present a zero on your level, and advance.
