Analogy with human beings

March 5th 2017
The only way to rightfully resolve relationships with others is to constantly keep in mind the concept of the two natures: lower and higher. Trust only the higher nature, the divine nature, both in yourself and in others. A human being is like a bank in which you deposit capital. So be vigilant, first make sure that any ‘bank’ you deal with is solid and reliable, or you will risk losing everything, and there will then be no use in complaining or rebelling. And since you yourself are a bank, strive also to be trustworthy. For it is not merely a question of whether or not you can trust others; ask yourself if they too can trust you, and do your best to deserve this trust. It is this above all that must concern you.
