Without our unity, we cannot attain and reveal the Creator. After all, the Creator is revealed as the central point of our unity that everything came from and everything must return to.
The greatness of the friends is first in the fact that the Creator chose them. That is, they are the ones chosen by the Creator.
Second, I see how much they are aiming for the same goal. That is, the Creator placed in them a desire that I value and it is precious to me.
Third, friends can help me, and I cannot achieve my goal without them. Without them, I am absolutely nobody and nothing. Everything I can receive for attaining the Creator comes only from them.
Therefore, by receiving from them all kinds of qualities, intentions, and yearnings, I can come to the Creator. I myself have nothing with which I can come to the Creator. I am completely disconnected from the Creator with my qualities and thoughts.
The group is a connector that connects me to the Creator. Without a group, I cannot adhere to the Creator. It is for me like the placenta is for a fetus, a place for a fetus in the uterus. The fetus cannot attach to the uterus itself. It must first attach to the placenta and then to the uterus through it. The uterus is a female organ, and the placenta connects the fetus to the uterus.
The Creator is the spiritual womb and the entire upper organism, and the placenta, which connects the growing soul with the Creator, is the group. Therefore, if I do not attach myself to the group, to the friends, and do not connect with them into one common whole, then I have no connection with the Creator and no opportunity to reach it in the future.
Therefore, there is only one solution: always forward and not a step back.
