Question: Each individual has a certain desire either for the Creator or for what nature excites in him or her. To cultivate this desire, you have to connect with people who are similar to you. How does this happen?
Answer: It is unclear to us how the group unites. People suddenly feel that this idea is close to them, and in this way they come to the group.
There cannot be a lot of such people. They are sifted out and there are fewer and fewer of them until such a number of people in quantity and quality get together that they can embody a spiritual ideal, unity among themselves.
