If a person simply intuitively yearns for the Creator and it seems to him that he feels the upper force, then this is still only fantasy and self-deception. This is not enough for spiritual conception.
In order to become a spiritual embryo, I need to somehow separate myself from my egoism. This can only be done by connecting with the friends. At the point of my connection with the friends, the very place of annulment of my egoism is formed in which the spiritual embryo will then begin to grow.
We are not talking about fantasies, but about real desires that exist in nature, which we need to correct in order to feel the upper force in them. Otherwise, this force will not be revealed to us.
