Thank you for your questions!
As expressed before, God does not create anything. The word “creation” in Sakar Murlis is meant to express that though this Godly knowledge, a “new” virtuous man/woman appears. That is all.
Therefore, God is ego-less. Also, in this knowledge we know that God has a “role” which is already “fixed” in the Drama. Therefore, the “Drama” is the “big boss.” and what is the Drama? All souls, their parts and the physical stage. That Drama moves through entropy.
We do not come here to evolve. We have been always “here,” although at different times according to our parts. Existence has always existed. Thus, there is no “reason” for its existence. It is what has always been. To think about “creation” is a flawed thought as expressed in many articles here.
In your words: “Self respect:” To live life according to who you truly are. Ego: to live life according to what you believe you are.
Self-preservation: A dream. Everything changes.
