Answer: If you feel that each fulfillment is insufficient and immediately look for a new fulfillment, you will feel the old one as a deficiency, as a kind of descent.
Suppose I want to achieve some great knowledge. I ascend all the time, constantly striving for this, but I still have not reached it. So, I need to draw that great treasured degree that I want to achieve to myself.
And then I will consider all the intermediate degrees, even if I perceive something in them, incomplete because this attainment will not fill me but will only encourage me to move on.
Question: Are there any descents from which it is impossible to rise?
Answer: No. The Creator does not act like that. On the contrary, He helps a person rise.
