How can I see only excellent, superior qualities in all my friends? In an ideal state, I could say that I see an ideal world, ideal people, and ideal friends before me, and only within my egoism do I see shortcomings in my friends, in the world, in the Creator, in everything.
But I gradually adjust myself in such a way as to see the real picture of the world where everything is filled with one Creator—”There is none else besides Him.”
If I want to see the Creator, the upper world, then I can do it only in my corrected properties. And how can I understand, accept, adapt, and improve them? Only to the extent that I raise the group and the friends in my eyes.
All this is within our power and is practically in front of us. This is how we must act. This is a very good calibration, a correct adjustment to the spiritual world. That is why the Creator did it this way. We must try to use it all the time although our egoism will constantly interfere.
Question: What are these higher properties that I am trying to see in my friends?
Answer: They are above yours. They are superior to you in everything.
