How Can We See The Friends As Equal?

laitman_938.07Question: How can we see the friends in the group equal in their efforts? After all, 50% of the efforts I see are my efforts. I do not see the 50% of the friend’s efforts.

Answer: We cannot measure even our own efforts let alone the efforts of others. We do not have such abilities. Therefore, we should just work on our connection, and it will sort everything into place.

Question: Do I, as a friend who is following the spiritual path, have the opportunity to see that someone in the group does not give his full effort?

Answer: I pay no attention to it. If all this is presented by the Creator, then I must work with these parts of my soul and accept them as the Creator created them. I have to go by faith above reason.

Like A Father In A Family

laitman_938.01Question: How should I treat a friend who annoys me because he is constantly late for class and sleeps during the lesson? How can I justify him? Can you give any advice?

Answer: Rabash had a tolerant attitude toward such a situation. I myself many times fell asleep in the lessons because our states do not actually depend on how tired we are. Therefore, we must try to justify a friend.

Question: There is a state when a person should see himself above the friends. But not everyone can do this. Does it mean that he should make efforts toward this?

Answer: Of course. How can I help the friends if I am lower than them? I have to take care of them, organize everything for them, do everything I can. For this, I must feel like a father in the family.

Question: You always say that I should feel like a father, these are my children, and on the other hand, I should feel as if I am inside my mother, that the group is my mother. How can these two states exist at the same time, in the same person?

Answer: They cannot be together at the same moment because they come from completely different internal states. However, they can be absolutely adjacent. There is no problem that one state is instantly replaced by another. We work in a pulsating mode.
