Question: Why do we need to rule the upper world and how can we do it at all if we are not even able to govern ourselves?
Answer: Indeed, a person cannot control himself and even more so not the upper world. But you can achieve control over both if you strive to connect with the upper force, with the properties of bestowal and love. Then you will be able to control the upper worlds.
Question: Does a person start literally from the zero point?
Answer: He starts from a very good state, from the complete opposite of the upper force. This opposition is the basis, the pledge, the condition for its correct movement.
