Answer: Who has the Creator promised that everything will be fine? Only those who choose the way of getting closer to Him.
Getting closer to the Creator’s attributes guarantees each of us the entrance to completely different natural conditions, to the feeling of life, of our existence, of nature, in a totally different manner. But if a person does not engage in that, he will surely feel like all the beasts and animals living in our world. He will have nothing left.
The Creator does not promise paradise to everyone, and certainly not for free, because a person does not have the attributes by which he can feel spiritual life. He can do so only if he understands how to attain the good states. A person is given the opportunity to do so.
This is the reason there are two authorities. On one hand there is the authority of the rigid control of nature as its developing forces operate on us like a steamroller, and we cannot escape them. On the other hand, we can develop by preceding this development, which means by moving in front of the steamroller, by understanding the forces of our development, and participating in the process constructively.
Question: How can there be two authorities if there is only one authority that manages everything by the upper force?
Answer: Yes, but that authority also enables us to yearn for it more and faster than it manages us.
