Mutual Complement Of Two Levels Of Desires

571.03Question: How can we combine the main goal in life, for example, personal growth, with such desires as family and work?

Answer: These are two degrees: animate and human. At the animate level, a person needs this world: food, family, children, and so on. On the other hand, he also needs the spiritual world. Therefore, he should devote time for both.

Both degrees should mutually complement each other but in different proportions in each person.

Our basic desires do not contradict the spiritual ones. We need to realize them as well, but all of are subjugated to the upper desire—to attain nature.
