Question: The moment the importance of spirituality is revealed, a certain desire of this world suddenly appears, does not let us rest, and it becomes stronger than the desire for spirituality. Why is this disturbance given to us?
Answer: The problem is that you do not have a proper environment that will give you an even greater thirst for revealing the question of the meaning of life.
If you are alone, the environment you are in will, of course, be much stronger and will drag you down. But if you create a small society around you in which everyone tries to cooperate mutually and correctly, each one can lean on the others and thus advance.
