Question: How can one come closer to the Creator after a serious trauma? How can the Creator desire this suffering and pain? Why and what for?
Answer: I cannot explain this to you. You must learn this by yourself, and gradually, precisely gradually, you will begin to see the true picture of the world. I do not even want to talk about this right now. You will not understand me, you will reject what I can tell you.
Question: Doesn’t the very presence of trauma prevent development?
Answer: No. It even encourages us.
