Question: I would like to know what is in people’s minds? How can we believe in this nonsense and pay out large sums of hard-earned money? Tell me, how does this happen?
Answer: People want to believe in a miracle. I’m going to rub this lamp and a genie will appear and he will follow my instructions.
Question: Is this the most important point?
Answer: No, I think that’s the next step. The most important thing is for the genie to appear.
Question: So we are ready to pay for this miracle?
Answer: Of course!
Question: Why don’t we want the revelation of the Creator, the revelation of the upper force? Isn’t this also a miracle?
Answer: Of course.
Question: So why don’t we want this miracle?
Answer: Firstly, we don’t believe. It’s easier to believe in a genie. It’s not that simple.
Question: Then how do we make ourselves want this miracle of the upper force, the Creator, to manifest itself?
Answer: Prove that you want it! Lay yourself out. Beg the Creator. Find out how you can summon Him and it will work.
Question: What should I rub in order to summon Him?
Answer: Yourself. Purify yourself.
Question: From what?
Answer: From egoism, of course.
Question: Does He not manifest Himself because I’m full of egoism?
Answer: Certainly. You don’t feel Him. He is around you and you are in Him, but you don’t feel it because you are all covered with egoism. You have to wash yourself thoroughly, wipe yourself of egoism, then you will begin to feel that the Creator is manifesting Himself.
