No Thought Of Himself

222Question: Our sources say that the Creator has no thought of Himself. How can we understand this?

Answer: This means that the Creator has no idea that He is doing good to others, only good without any control, without any recompense for Himself.

Question: If we imagine the Creator as nature, then we can somewhat understand. Nature has no thought about itself, it is only radiating, developing, the entire creation. But those who attained the Creator describe it in such language as if the Creator is also selfish: He wants us to work for Him. Why?

Answer: Relative to us, the Creator is like a parent in relation to a child. It also seems to a child that his parents are great egoists, but they think only about his welfare.
