Question: In an egoistic world, we are responsible for those we vouch for if they do not succeed. In the spiritual world, am I accountable to the upper force for the fact that a friend refuses to pursue the goal because I did not make enough effort to keep him in this direction? Is this my responsibility?
Answer: Yes, you are fully responsible for your friends.
We reach such states in our mutual guarantee where we see that there is no way for any of us to advance or even not to fall from the spiritual state unless there is support from the group. We become more and more dependent on the group.
As a result, we begin to understand that the group is that tube that connects the fetus in the mother’s uterus with the mother. The mutual guarantee, the group, is the bond between the fetus and the mother. We must feel first-hand how important the group is to us.
