To Victory Over Egoism

562.02Comment: We study that before making an agreement with the Creator, a person must make an agreement with his friends, with a group, because in our world the Creator is hidden behind all objects of inanimate, vegetative, animate, and human nature.

My Response: The fact is that the Creator is a force that we do not attain at all. We feel it only in our material—in egoism.

To the extent that we can correct our broken egoistic state and antagonistic ties for a good connection, for altruistic relationships, to that extent we become similar to the Creator and can feel Him among us.

Since a person initially consists of only egoistic intention and desire, then working on this egoism in order to achieve a connection between us is our main work.

By dividing our egoism into five parts according to its level, according to its strength, and according to its desire to reject everything that is outside the field of my egoistic goals—by overcoming these antagonistic desires and intentions for the whole world—I gradually become closer to others and enter into connection with others.

By this I rise above my egoism, defeat it, and thus overcome all five steps of my egoistic desires. Five steps, multiplied by five, and again by five, give one hundred twenty-five steps that separate me from the Creator, from similarity to Him. These are the stages of attainment, correction, and our rapprochement with each other.
