The place for revealing the Creator emerges in me in the place where I set myself aside and allow the friend to enter. In this place I am restricted, and the friend enters. Then I can reveal the Creator in that very place. This is called “from love of creatures to love of the Creator.”
If I am developing spiritually, then I am happy when I envy the friends, because that is how I reveal forces within me to advance forward. But if I don’t want to see their accomplishments, to avoid suffering, it means I don’t care about spirituality! I must therefore check: do I feel envy or do I instinctively cover it up to avoid suffering?
