What Is Talent Given For?

630.2The lower the soul of a person,
the higher the nose  [turns] up.
He stretches his nose to where the soul has not grown.
(Omar Khayyam)

We see this in real life even with a naked eye. And everyone can see that it is so.

Comment: A person displays himself, he becomes a great politician, a great businessman.

My Response: He has to hold himself up somehow. If others do not hold him by appreciating him and respecting him, then he raises himself in this way. Look at all the politicians.

Question: That is, “he stretches his nose to where the soul has not grown”? Where does the soul stretch, rise up to what?

Answer: The soul stretches to the Creator, that is if a person understands this. And if his soul does not grow to such a state, then at least he wants to raise himself to such a level that he is respected.

Question: Does he put pressure on others?

Answer: Of course!

Question: And if the soul grows, then it raises him?

Answer: Yes.

Question: Why is man given individuality? After all, he is still growing, he wants to grow!

Answer: Everyone is very individual. To the extent that a person wants to realize himself in closeness with the Creator, in likeness to the Creator, and he shows himself more through these actions, all his correct properties become prominent.

Although it seems that if he wants to become like the Creator, he nullifies himself. No!

Question: Why is man given talents, individuality?

Answer: Only for this. So that he becomes like the Creator in each of its special properties.
