Answer: It is in order to pull you along with me as part of my essence.
Question: Does it mean that you are responsible for people?
Answer: They all are my parts! Therefore, I am tied to them. And so is each of us. There is mutual inclusion of everybody into everything. Therefore, each of us pulls others and together we draw near to the world of eternity, of infinity.
By helping others, you eventually help yourself because all others are your spiritual part. All this is one Adam.
Question: Do I bestow to myself and not to another person?
Answer: Yes, but it seems to you that you bestow to others. The fact is that the state called Adam was broken into many parts, so that each part relative to others could move from its egoism to altruism and thus acquire the quality of the Creator, the quality of bestowal and love.
If this system did not break, how could it acquire the quality of the Creator? How would it act? Yet since we are broken and there is egoism between us, mutual rejection, we can overcome it and connect with others. Then the force of overcoming will become the force of our connection and similarity with the Creator. We need to reach this state.
This is the idea of the Creator: as a result of the shattering, the created being would become egoistic and all the force of light, the force of the Creator, the force of His love, would enter between us and turn into egoism, into hatred. We now need to revert it back into connection and love, and then we will become similar to the Creator.
