Question: The growth of the soul and the changes in it due to the light’s influence is something very internal, abstract, and hidden from strangers. How do these changes appear in the material world? Does a person become more harmonious? Are good relations revealed between us?
Answer: I would not say that good relations are revealed. But everything that happens in our world is carried out under the influence of an upper field. It constantly increases its tension, intensity, and this is felt as the Creator is approaching us.
But this is a very unpleasant approach because the Creator is the quality of bestowal and love, and we, being uncorrected egoists, feel His approach as negative. This is similar to the way teachers and parents approach us and demand us to behave more maturely, more seriously, and we do not want to.
Today we can see it in the development of all humankind. The Creator’s approach to the world determines the current crisis. Since we have not become similar to the Creator, this is not a good rapprochement; we would otherwise feel this approach as His revelation. Not the revelation of darkness, suffering, problems, and various viruses, but the revelation of the light. Everything depends on us. If we manage to rise spiritually, we feel the approach of the Creator as a blessing. If we do not, we feel it as evil.
The Creator always wants to get closer to us and He does so gradually, but so far we feel His approach as a constant decline of mankind.
