The most important and needed action in our lives is turning to the Creator—the upper force of love and bestowal—and asking Him for help: to help us correct ourselves from the situation He created us in— the evil inclination, i.e., the egoistic desire to receive for self-benefit at the expense of others—and lead us to the desire to bestow.
In such a way, we will become corrected, i.e., we will acquire the desire to bestow in place of our egoistic desire, and come to feel the spiritual reality.
We currently feel the corrupted corporeal reality in our egoistic desires, a reality of short-lived, transient pleasures and incomplete perception. By discovering the spiritual reality, we will also be able to feel an endless world, an eternal and perfect life above our existence.
The trigger to activate such a revelation is our own request for it: that we ask the Creator to elevate us to the spiritual reality. He expects and awaits such a request from us. That is why there is no action in our entire lives more important and special than prayer, i.e., turning to the Creator to help us exit our self-centered desire and to connect with each other. Moreover, to the extent that we connect with each other, with the Creator’s quality of love and bestowal illuminating in our connection, we likewise connect with the Creator. That is actually of utmost importance in our lives.
