If we do not push each other away, then we see that the Creator does not push us away either. And if we embrace each other, we will feel that the Creator also embraces us.
It is as if sharp thorns on us do not let us hug each other. But we understand that these thorns belong to the Creator and not to a friend. And if in an effort to embrace my friends I feel sharp thorns and rejection, then these are my thorns, my hatred and not theirs, no matter how much it seems to me that the friends are to blame.
Therefore, we embrace in spite of everything with faith above reason: first through force and then willingly. And then all thorns do not just disappear, but turn into the glue of our indissoluble connection.
