Question: When I use the force of electricity or the force of gravity, I don’t need to ask anyone for anything. Why is it that in order to interact with the upper force of nature, I need to form a spiritual request?
Answer: Within the framework of the still, vegetative, or animate nature (since in this earthly existence we too are a part of the animate nature), we remain in a clear material state. We have nothing to ask about. We simply need to know how to adapt ourselves, learn, and use corporeal nature, study its laws, and try to somehow implement them correctly.
When we try to rise to the next level, to the spiritual degree of our existence, we enter a totally different relationship: a relationship with the Creator. Therefore, we are constantly tied to Him. He addresses us, and we turn to Him.
In this connection, when we want to become similar to Him, we create an image of likeness to the Creator for ourselves, called “our soul.”
