The main spiritual work is to increase the greatness of the Creator. Only the creation decides whether the Creator is great or small. The Creator made a concealment, egoism, which conceals Him from the creation. And the creation must, above this concealment, crown and raise the Creator’s greatness, establish the kingdom by forcefully overcoming all egoistic screens that the Creator covers Himself with.
Everything that happens to us in this world is depicted by the egoistic mind and heart and is an invitation to remove the concealment by increasing the greatness of the Creator with each step. We want to reveal the power of the upper force, beside which nothing else exists.
The Creator conceals Himself in our desire to enjoy, and we must reveal His power from this concealment, declaring that He is the only reason for everything that ever was, is, or will be. That is how we build Him, as it is written: “You have made Me.” Behind all the concealments, we discover that the Creator is the only force in the world.
The more we annul our egoism and attain the qualities of the Creator, His program, the more we can rise and succeed in this work, according to the degree of our annulment.1
We are trying to establish the Creator’s rule despite the complete concealment and lack of taste in the work. And we are trying with all our strength to detect His governance, as if we are trying to peer through the fog or see in the dark. That is how I try to detect that the Creator orchestrates every state, opinion, and desire for me. And I resist this concealment and try to see the Creator through it, to understand that it is Him who is creating this state.2
The main thing that determines our perception of reality is not the situation but it’s cause: “Did my child do this or did someone else? Is the Creator behind it or somebody else with quite opposite intentions?” When we reveal that we live in a completely integral reality where only the single force of the Creator, the purpose of creation, is at work, naturally our perception changes.
It does not mean that we see different images before us; simply, the reason, the source of all that is happening, changes. We reveal the network controlling this whole game: the one who controls all the puppets behind the curtain of this puppet theater.
And He is doing it all for me! But who am I? I am a point in the heart. My puppet is also there, among all the other dolls in this theater of life. But I observe this play from my point in the heart.3
