Answer: We are in an integral, global nature, as if inside a ball. The whole system of nature is interdependent and is in a certain internal balance. And we humans are specially created as egoists; we constantly disturb this balance in ourselves and in the field surrounding us: the inanimate, vegetative, animate, and human.
The problem is that despite the constant development and work of our egoism, we must reach a state where we fully balance the ego, make a restriction on it, the so-called Tzimtzum, and then use it the other way around: for bestowal, for proper communication with each other, when everyone consumes only what is necessary for himself.
Today, any regular person in a society makes money, has a family, children, home, work, and lives normally. One does not need too much. By his actions, he should not harm the environment but plan them in a way that they are in balance with the outside world—not in a constant, petrified state, but in dynamic equilibrium.
If a person behaves this way, then it is good for him and good for the world. He begins to feel and get acquainted with the system of nature through this world: what formula it works by, what kind of force is inside nature that controls everything. This upper force is called the Creator.
In principle, nature deliberately created us so opposite to our equilibrium so that we would begin to feel in our development how much we do not correspond to it, i.e., to the Creator, how much we can change, and how to be closer to nature, to the Creator. At one point, we begin to comprehend this force that controls us and wants to be in balance and communication with us all the time.
Here lies the purpose of man’s existence: to reach the level of connection with the general force of nature called the Creator. When we reach it, we will feel that we are in the state of the highest comfort, knowledge, eternity, and perfection. We must come to this state.
Therefore, the virus that we are now awakening and which in turn is awakening us, exists precisely so that we can find the right interaction with nature, come to equilibrium with it, to the revelation of the Creator, to communication with Him.
Question: How can you feel and realize balance with nature? After all, everyone has their own vision of this.
Answer: You treat everyone as yourself. This is the best. If we relate to each other like that, then at all levels: inanimate, vegetative, and animate, everything will be in order. We will be in dynamic equilibrium with the world around us and begin to feel through it the higher management system—the program called the Creator.
