Don’t Wait For Approval From Above

528.01Question: How can one determine that personal influence on the ten in mutual guarantee gives them spiritual growth? How can I evaluate my actions?

Answer: First, I must act regardless of what I see. It is not what I see that matters, but how I can actually influence my friends.

If I see the results of my influence, then maybe it would be like a reward for my efforts instead of spiritual ascent. Therefore, it is better not to see, but to act, as they say, in the dark. Do not wait for a positive reaction or for some kind of approval from above.

It is best if we make efforts purposefully in one direction. Then you will see how you begin to receive in the quality of bestowal, in the quality of faith above reason. That is, you will work and you will have even more opportunities and strength to act.
