Question: Every day we are in a new sensation, and yesterday’s attainment becomes today’s knowledge. How can I reach the next state, something new I can work with before the Creator begins to push me?
Answer: Only through connection with friends. Then you develop a new Kli, a new desire to combine your common desires and thus move forward. You cannot advance simply by knowledge because the conventional study of materials gives practically nothing.
You need to act for the sake of connection between you, and then the Creator will influence you, your mutual connections. Thus, from connection with friends, you will come to connection with the Creator and begin to reveal Him. And if you do it alone, then you will not achieve anything.
