Only through awakening the friends do I awaken my soul. The realization of correction moves from the individual outward. We have nothing to correct within ourselves.1
I must be in a group with friends all the time and constantly think how to bring them closer to the goal of creation. My correction is contained in this. I begin with the intention that I do not wish them any harm. If I restrict myself, stop my egoism and do not use it, then it is already an entrance into the process of correction because I do not wish evil for others.
From this point onward, I look at each person from a different perspective than before. I don’t see faces or bodies. If I move through a restriction with respect to them and establish that I do not see anything negative in them, then I begin to see the spiritual world, as if I step over the threshold and enter spirituality. From this moment on, I look at the world without a backward glance at my egoism and only look at how I can bring all of inanimate, vegetative, and animate nature to adhesion with the Creator. I was created only for this and I received an awakening. My goal is not to raise myself up along the spiritual levels, but to bring the friends to the Creator.2
