Question: From my experience, I can say that there are people who feel that when they unite at a convention, it is good for them; they really feel spiritual elevation. And there are those who do not feel anything at all.
In which cases should a person feel something if he has not yet developed altruistic characteristics? If a person is feeling with egoistic characteristics, it is not called unity. What would you advise those who do not feel anything?
Answer: It depends on the attitude of the person toward what is happening. Let him sit and cry about not feeling anything instead of flaunting the fact saying, “I don’t feel anything and I don’t care, you go ahead and worry.” It should be of great concern to him, because his whole life could continue like that, just as half his life has already passed, and what is the reason for it?
A person must yearn for the highest quality in our world and the upper world to be revealed to him, meaning the Creator, the power of nature, which holds all of creation within it and manages everything.
If I am a sociable person who loves the group, loves unity, then my connection with others is basically prosaic. It interests me to be together with everyone, I spin around, shout and dance; that is one thing.
But when I do all of this because I must discover the Creator, that is another matter. To do this, I am ready to act like a little child. I will do whatever they tell me, because I want to achieve my goal. Therefore, I will do everything in order to enrage my ego. Let the ego “provoke” me, and to spite it, I will step over it and move on.
