Question: When the outside world bugs a person through bad influences and events, a person perceives them as negative. What is the correct concrete thing to do? How can we perform our spiritual work and not try to escape the pressure?
Answer: You don’t need to escape the pressure. You just need to balance the negative influence with the positive impact of the group and come to the conclusion that everything stems from the Creator. With your correct attitude to the impact that comes from Him, you turn this impact into a positive one. In practice, it still moves you forward, and you will no longer feel anything negative.
