Answer: There is no difference.
Question: According to you, ultimately people will be independent, meaning the Creator Himself. Isn’t this just a catch phrase?
Answer: No. The upper force exists; this is the Creator. There is a lower power that was created by Him. According to the parameters one acquires, one must become equal to the Creator.
Question: How is it possible to understand if a desire is a desire of the Creator or a desire of a person?
Answer: The desire of the Creator is in all of nature, and in fact, a person has no desire. Only the desire of the Creator exists. If you could absolutely renounce yourself, you would find that you only have the desire of the Creator.
Question: How must one understand the expression: “Don’t believe in yourself until the day you die” (Pirkei Avot 2:4)? What does “in yourself” mean? Is it your egoism?
Answer: Yes, in your egoism. Never believe in your own powers in any way.
