There are people who find it hard to even hear that we need to reach connection in order to attain the Creator. The Creator is so exalted and incomprehensible, He is in another dimension that we do not feel. He does not fit into the scope of our mind and feelings. We cannot assemble this puzzle—the image of the Creator—from the thoughts and sensations within us so that we somehow feel and understand Him.
Yet, on the other hand, they say that it happens through simple corporeal actions in our world. We do not understand the connection between the two: how will it help if I smile at others and treat them well? We don’t think of it as a serious game, just hypocrisy. We are egotists by nature and have already tried to change our external behavior without changing the inner essence.
However, here we should understand that there is a special spiritual component called the light that returns to the source—a special force that we can draw and it will change our nature. Therefore, even if we do not want to connect, to get closer to each other, and to support each other, we must do this in order to come closer to the Creator. This is hard work and we need to convince ourselves of its necessity so that even acting against our desire, pretending and playing, we awaken the light that reforms.
The more artificial and unnatural our effort is, and we make it nevertheless, the more light it awakens. Hence the paradox that people who cannot stand any connection with others and do not accept this principle, through their smallest efforts to connect, they awaken a great light of correction.1
