Question: There are many personal growth techniques nowadays that say: “Take responsibility, set goals and act, strive, work!” A person on our path often faces the fact that the Creator inserts sticks in his wheels. How can one act properly in order to do what is necessary on the material level and not deviate from one’s spiritual path?
Answer: First of all, it is necessary to understand the Creator’s plan. The plan is to bring a person to an absolutely free state. So that no pressure from the Creator is directed against a person, only for a person. If a person perceives this correctly, then he finds the correct contact with the Creator.
Then you just need to implement this practice. You will gradually understand that exactly this practice makes you free, raising you above your egoism. It raises you to the quality of bestowal, and this quality makes you free.
It seems to us that the quality of bestowal, love, bestowal on one’s neighbor, and love for one’s neighbor somehow enslaves us, limits us, makes us think about others and work for others. No. This is actually not the case. In fact, meanwhile, we begin to receive the upper energy, the higher sensation, a way out of this world; therefore, it feels like freedom.
