Answer: It’s the same thing; therefore, it is also written, “Taste and see that the Creator is good” (Psalms 34:9), see how tasty He is.
Question: I can enjoy relationships with you and the gifts that you give me on the physical level. What gives me enjoyment in the spiritual world?
Answer: In the spiritual world, something like this doesn’t exist. What you receive from me is myself. After all, even in our world, it is the same thing. My image is created within you as a result of what you get from me, and my being outside of you is only an illusion. It seems to you that I exist. But in fact, I don’t exist.
Question: But am I not receiving a gift in the form of an object that pleases me?
Answer: You receive it from the Creator. But in the meantime, this gift exists within you, as a physical gift within your emotions, and it seems to you that it was given by me. That is how the Creator places Himself before you.
