Answer: That is right. It is through negative experiences that we must bring the idea and attainment of an absolutely eternal, upper, pure mind into this world.
Therefore, the entire experience of a person, from creating statues and worshiping various gods, to scientific research leading him to the conclusion that only he rules the whole world, can be called idolatry.
This goes on until he realizes that there is only one single force. We all commit idol worship until we reveal the Creator.
Question: So if I believe that some nation started a war against another nation or if someone has done something against me, and I do not feel a single force behind it, then is this attitude called idolatry?
Answer: Yes, you believe that it was done by someone other than the Creator. This is already idolatry.
