Answer: The basic principle of spiritual development is to tie everything unexceptionally to the Creator, because “there is none else besides Him,” and everything in us was created and is managed by Him.
We have direct contact only with the Creator, and this connection affects us. But in order to connect to Him we need to unite in the ten, and then from the ten we will be able to act with Him mutually and interactively.
Question: How can we measure the spiritual growth of the group?
Answer: The spiritual growth of the group is measured according to the level of mutual guarantee, mutual connection, and mutual support between the friends, and the level of their loyalty to each other. You need to understand that in the spiritual world you are one unique whole. This is how you scrutinize yourselves.
