Question: Should I minimize the importance of negative events I undergo and increase the importance of the Creator or should I minimize the importance of the “me,” of myself, so I will not even divide the events I undergo as negative or positive?
Answer: You don’t need to engage in destroying yourself, not at all. On the contrary, you should think that you are strong, great, so you can impact the world in a good way and not minimize your impact on the world.
Question: Suppose I am summoned by the police or the IRS, should I immediately see the Creator behind this, i.e., increase His importance at that moment and then automatically decrease the importance of the police or the IRS?
Answer: You shouldn’t do it intentionally. You should relate to everything equally and then what difference does it make if you are playing with your child or if you are being interrogated by the police? You are in contact with the Creator.
If you try to reach contact with the Creator then this is how it is supposed to work out for you. Try it.
