The Children Of The Universe, Part 9

Dr. Michael LaitmanWe are very limited. We study the whole universe and ourselves through our five senses, calculating our profit and loss.

This really limits us because we don’t go beyond ourselves and don’t actually see what is on the outside. Rather, we pass everything through our internal system and decide whether it makes us feel good or bad, period.

As a result, there are many phenomena that we don’t see and we don’t distinguish the many forces in our universe or in parallel universes. It is because they simply don’t interest us and don’t affect our ego, our desire to receive pleasure.

If I could identify the connection between something and my success, I would certainly study it and would discover a new phenomenon. If I don’t see such a connection, I am blind to any phenomenon.

The reason is that I don’t have a second force, the force of bestowal. I am totally made of the force of receiving.

Comment: But there are also phenomena in which we see the connection but cannot distinguish them. For example, we would very much like to know about natural disasters in advance so that we can protect ourselves from them. This is very beneficial, but we are still helpless in the face of hurricanes, earthquakes, etc.

Answer: Of course there are phenomena that we believe to exist, but they are like dark matter. We assume that they exist and that they are related to us, yet we cannot identify them. But this is a matter of research on a different level.

I, on the other hand, am speaking about a fundamental flaw in our perception, about the fact that it isn’t in our power to actually see in any way, not even theoretically or hypothetically.

If we acquired the force of bestowal, the force to exit ourselves and if we could remove the limitation of our egoistic minds and desires, we would truly and objectively study what is external to us. We would study it with an external mind and heart.

Then we could reveal whole worlds and complete the distorted and fragmented picture that we see today.

Now we seem to live in a bubble that is totally drawn inwards and collapses into itself. We see, feel, and study only what is perceived by the egoistic gravity. This is also where our universe exists, which seems so immense and infinite to us. It is all inside this small bubble of our perception.

Unless we acquire a second force that will allow us to exit the boundaries of our attributes, we will not discover what is on the outside.
