My Response: On whom does the world rest? Does the world rest on people? The world hardly tolerates these people; it suffers from them. They sit on it like flies and gnaw it from all sides. Why should I love such a picture? We just dig our teeth into this Earth, into this world, and we gnaw on it wherever possible and push others away.
And then we also want to fly to Mars to escape from here: “Apple trees will bloom also on Mars.” And we will chop them down in the same way.
Comment: “Then on whom does the world rest,” Alexey asks. After all, it does rest on something.
My Response: The world rests on the word, on the word of God. In the beginning there was the word, and the word was God, and God was eternity, and so on.
The world rests on the quality of good, on the quality of love. It all comes from the upper one, not from us. If it were from us, then this whole world would not exist for a second. We are the negative energy in the world.
The Creator holds us, holds the world. If not for this, nothing would exist. In the meantime, we are parasites on this world.
Question: What does the Creator hope for? What does He even want while holding us?
Answer: He does not hope. He governs so that a person eventually grows up to the realization of how to govern the world in general and takes the place of the Creator.
Question: Does it mean, according to your words, that people are created to govern this world? These, as you say, low creatures?
Answer: Yes. They were created to be the crown of creation, to govern the world, to convince the Creator to influence our world with the quality of good, which will be supported by all means by man, by people, and humanity.
They must allow the qualities of love and bestowal and kindness and compassion to be revealed in the world.
Therefore, they must go through this “bottom,” recognize their nature, suppress it in themselves, and come to the need for the opposite nature—the nature of the Creator.
Question: How does a person come to the conclusion that this is the path?
Answer: From suffering. There is no other way, but the recognition of the pettiness of one’s own powers, qualities, and capabilities. The Creator expects that we will turn to Him for help, ask Him for the force of the quality of good, bestowal, and love, and thereby rise to His level.
