Answer: You should feel that when you get close to each other’s hearts, a feeling arises between you that lifts you up above your ordinary egoism.
At the same time, thoughts and other various disturbances that hinder you immediately appear. However, you must understand that all this acts in parallel. One rises while the other descends, and so you alternately dance like on waves, all the while creating these waves: rising, descending, approaching, and distancing.
Getting closer to each other is at your expense, and distancing is given to you on purpose. This is how you begin to generate a special spiritual energy that gradually causes the urges that lead to the revelation of the Creator.
In addition, I recommend reading my tweets on Twitter: old, new—no matter which ones. I put a certain feeling in each of them. It should “pick you up,” turn something inside of you. Do not skip this. Twitter and lessons—especially those that we have every day in the morning—are necessary. Try to stay with us.
