You Won’t Figure Out Anything Without The Light

 

Only the group can give you the desire to change your nature, and only the Light can change it. And only then will you really understand what bestowal is!

Today it seems to me that bestowal is simply to bestow to others. But that is completely incorrect!

How is it possible to bestow to others if in spirituality we unite as one whole without any differences between us? To whom do I bestow in that case-to others or to myself?

Therefore, right now we have absolutely no understanding of what bestowal is. This spiritual notion seems to get lost somehow. If I ascend to some spiritual level and see that on it everyone unites together, then it would seem like I have no one to bestow to; I am the only one everywhere!

We cannot understand this until the Light comes and gives us this spiritual vision. We, egoists, think that bestowal is when we give to another person by overcoming our lack of desire.

The Compass Pointing To The Creator

 

Question: How can I check that I am going in the right direction?

Dr. Laitman's Answer: You will never be able to find this out. To do that you would have to know where is the final goal and where are you. Then you could draw a straight line between the two points and discern the right direction.

But if you do not know these two points, then what can you do? And the fact is that you will never find out what they are!

That is why we have the group, which is the only opportunity to move toward the goal. You have to become included in it, and the more you join it, the more it will mean that you are moving in the right direction.

How can you check this? The moment you really start to unite with them, inside that unity among all of you, you will reveal the Creator. He will be your witness that right now you are going in the right direction, and that is no fantasy!

This evidence is the first supporting fact, and only then can you be sure that you went in the right direction. Before that, it is written, "One made efforts and found."

Efforts should be made during the study of the primary sources in the group. Everything else is auxiliary work.
