Question: How can I tell when I deny the Creator’s governance? Can it bring me material or spiritual harm?
Answer: You cannot know this. If you could know, you would never exit egoism, you would do everything to get the maximum egoistic reward for yourself and would harm yourself spiritually by doing so.
You cannot obtain this knowledge until you begin to act altruistically, above yourself.
