Question: If the world is a reaction to forces, does it mean that I am also only a reaction? If this is so, then what is this I that is attaining all this?
Answer: Indeed, I am a reaction to what I produce. I feel myself as one form or another.
My head, body, feelings, heart, and so on are all my automatic, natural, instinctive reactions to what affects me and eventually gives me a sense of myself, my body, my thoughts, and feelings.
I do not know who I am. I am inconceivable just as the Creator is inconceivable. We attain only our reactions to something around us.
Then, as we attain more, we will see that in fact, we are attaining the upper light. It gives us a sense of ourselves and the world around us. Gradually it will come to us.
