In order to realize the plan of creation, to come closer to the Creator, to reveal Him and to be together with Him in mutual consent, pleasure and connection, the creation must go through several actions.
The first is the realization that existence in simple egoism, when we receive from the Creator only something small and earthly, limits us. These are the small pleasures of food, sex, family, wealth, fame, knowledge. And that’s it.
As a result of human and social evolution, we come to a state where these fillings no longer suit us. And then there is a longing for something more, a desire to realize what we were created for.
It is when we can no longer fill ourselves and enjoy earthly egoistic pleasures that we begin to ask, “what is the meaning of my life? What do I exist for?” Many people nowadays ask these questions. That’s why depression is so common.
But, in principle, it makes us think about the real meaning of life and understand that it does not consist only in enjoying within the framework of our life. There’s more to it than that.
This desire for something more arises in us after we have passed through all the periods of development in our world and come to the end of our earthly development.
