Answer: On the spiritual path, we are thrown from side to side, and we undergo all sorts of states: disappointment, delight, fulfillment, devastation, interaction with the friends and disconnection from them toward solitude, and so on.
It is necessary for a person to feel all of this. He deliberately undergoes such states, in order to choose the point of contact with the Creator from them. Most importantly, one should not remain in such states.
All states that we undergo in the group are good. They lead to spiritual development. Even if they seem to be half empty and unnecessary, it is not so. Therefore, try to devote as much time as possible to the connection between you and the friends.
For example, I teach every day, write tweets, answer questions, compose blog posts, etc. Because of this, I advance.
What is special in what I do? I answer the small questions of beginners and so on. Yet, through the connection with other souls, I help them rise and connect—precisely this is how each one of us develops.
