Answer: This is a very correct feeling. A person begins to feel that it is precisely the fact that he lacks the feeling of the upper world that creates emptiness in him, and therefore, he is moving toward its attainment. He cannot explain why, but he really needs it.
He wants to understand himself, to understand the Creator, to understand his destiny, how to reach perfection, the purpose of life, its meaning, and what he lives for.
Question: Can this desire attract and frighten a person at the same time?
Answer: Yes, but in general it attracts.
