The Creator inverts Himself inside out like a garment and shows us His inverse side. When we feel this inverse side of the upper force, we call it darkness, evil spirits, and all kinds of negative epithets at the inanimate, vegetative, animate, and human degrees.
That is, against every good state on the rungs of the spiritual ladder there is a bad state. In the contrast between these two states, we have the opportunity to develop sensations to evaluate the advantage of light from darkness.
Everything is revealed only from its opposite. Therefore our advancement must happen in this way and we should not be afraid of negative states. Every time we fall, we have to understand that we lack a stronger connection between us. The Creator, who is concealed inside this connection, will pull us forward.
Every time, we need to equip ourselves with the support of the Creator more and more, depict Him between us, and make sure that He is present in all our thoughts and actions. The most effective means to attract the Creator is our prayer.
