There are two states in a person: when he resists the spiritual quality and when he agrees to build himself in similarity to the Creator.
As long as a person is working in his egoism and suffering does not yet force him to start thinking about the meaning of life, about the meaning of blows: “What for, why? Is it worth living then?”, then he naturally resists the Creator’s quality.
But internal blows make him think about the meaning of life. After all, this question has nothing to do with corporeal well-being or even with physical problems. It arises and that is it. No special predispositions or external circumstances are required for this.
If such questions arise in a person, then he begins to gradually approach the study of the meaning of life. This leads him to the revelation of the Creator.
