Shame Is The Neutralizer Of Egoism

284.05Question: In the original sources it is written that the Creator said: “I created an evil inclination.” What is it?

Answer: Egoism. And when we say: “the inclination” and it is evil, then who testifies to it? The man himself, the very bearer of egoism.

Question: What I receive is normal? But the fact that I use others for my own benefit, is this the opposite of the Creator?

Answer: It all depends on how you yourself assess it. This shows shame in relation to the Creator.

Question: It turns out that shame does not arise in still, vegetative, and animate nature. Does it manifest itself only in a human?

Answer: Only in a human, and even then not in everyone. Nature gradually develops us until we begin to feel it. Shame is the keenest feeling. It literally short-circuits a person to the Creator.

After a person has felt shame, true prayer can appear in him so that the Creator will correct his nature. After all, a person can endure everything except shame.

Therefore, the Creator leads everyone so that they are ashamed all the time, a little bit of this, of this, of that. And if He wants to seriously move a person forward, He gives the person such a feeling of shame that he is just ready to die.

Question: Can we say that nature, the Creator, moves us through life through shame?

Answer: Yes. Theoretically, you can take any person, delve in him a little and understand how you can impose such a feeling of trepidation on him from which he would even commit suicide. After all, shame nullifies egoism, and therefore he has nothing to live for. Therefore, there is only one way out: to destroy egoism, which means to kill oneself.
