What is required of a person in order to enter the spiritual world? One must completely separate from himself and submit to the Creator with all his heart and soul according to all the necessary conditions. One needs to arrange the rest of one’s life correctly. It would be good to write what exactly I believe I need to arrange in my corporeal and spiritual life. Each time I should add new conditions, reduce, organize, and perhaps even remove some parts.
Therefore, I will gradually create a certain image of a spiritual stage for myself. It is not so important whether it is the first stage, the second, or the third; the conditions for them change, but the principle remains. It is based on the fact that we have two properties: above reason, and next to it, within reason
One cannot exist without the other. It is necessary to be in both states: feeling anxiety, fears, terror, that is, all that relates to the desire to enjoy; and at the same time, one must be in the power of bestowal, faith above reason, in adhesion with the Creator as much as possible.
Also, although faith and adhesion with the Creator annul our egoistic desire and all fears, this must be felt in a person simultaneously, in parallel. One should not be afraid of such a “split personality.” One just needs to be able to use these two forces, two parameters, together, both the first and the second, so as not to be thrown either to the right line or to the left.
Maybe I prefer to move mainly in the right line above the left, and then I awaken the left one with respect to the right. But both these lines exist in me and I understand that I am standing on two legs. Only in this way will my level be stable.
Precisely because I can control both lines, it will be a complete transition, called: “working for the Creator in joy.” Joy comes from the fact that I include two opposite lines and I can build a middle line from them by which I build my soul. From the left side I take the desire, and from the right, the power of correction, the screen, the reflected Light, the clothing onto the direct Light, and in this way, I build my spiritual vessel, the Kli.
Therefore there is no need to erase any phenomenon; one just needs to know how to properly treat the properties of the right and left lines. Everything should be in a person, but one should not be thrown like a small child from irrepressible joy into sobbing. Internal stability is necessary.
The society must help a person become stable, and with the help of the environment, it can be done very quickly. The environment can dampen our irrepressible joy and euphoria, as well as our fears and anxieties if we suddenly enter into such negative vibrations.
The group is able to do this because it has the mass, the strength, and it can help a person in both situations. If the group is on the spiritual path, then each person brings in his right and left lines, which are imbalanced, and balances them with the help of the group. He adds the strength of the right and left lines to the group, and it balances everything in the middle line by means of common connection.
Then, in the center of the group, the middle line, the pillar of prayer begins to grow like a tree. This is the correct work concerning the Creator, who is revealed exactly in this middle line.1
