Question: How can desires and needs disappear because of the crisis? The crisis, as a force from above, artificially compresses the spring of desires, and it only grows because of this. What causes my desire to change?
Answer: You contradict yourself at the beginning and at the end of the phrase. The crisis does not come from above, it appears inside of us since we have played enough with these “toys” and now we are tired of them. So we begin to get rid of them. This is what is happening.
We exist within the sphere of nature. And we play something until it starts to degenerate. Then the crisis comes: I can’t play anymore, I can’t act this way, I don’t want to interact with others like that. All this comes from within us involuntarily; we do not even realize it.
As a result, it turns out that we come to a crisis in our relationships.
Question: And what affects the change of desire then?
Answer: Our incompatibility with the absolute, altruistic, good sphere we exist in that is a mismatch to the upper world.
