Boundless Limit of Egoism

Dr. Michael LaitmanThe still, vegetative, and animate nature functions as intended. There’s no freewill. Plants and animals are limited in their ability to destroy the world and have no excessive demands.

They don’t need ten outfits; they don’t need food storage facilities, and they don’t need to exercise power over the forest or the jungle. Every animal has its natural boundaries, its own territory, and its own family.

But suddenly some “little tail” gets out from animal to human level. A person is different from other levels due to a developing negative force ready to destroy everything so only this force can feel good.

There isn’t any good force in a person, and there isn’t any impulse towards unity, everything is concentrated on a personal gain, personal success at the expense of others, even if it costs them their lives.

In nature, species eat each other only for food in order to sustain life. A person requires spiritual food; one is restless while others have something good. A person wants to be the only one who is all right.

One is consumed with envy, lust, vanity, hatred, lust for power, the power of negative individualistic force. It’s negative because it leads to mutual confrontation, which isn’t for the sake of sustenance, as it is with the animals.

Such force knows no limits. Everyone would want to leave a certain number of people and turn them into robots, completely under one’s control. “Otherwise, why do they exist if not for me? Let them fully obey and serve me, let them live only to praise and exalt me.”

It turns out, that at the highest level of nature a special creature comes into existence, a person of this world, with a negative force growing inside.

At lower levels the positive force acts automatically along with the negative. Vital restrictions themselves are positive. On the other hand, from generation to generation people gain greater destructive potential.

A person’s negativity is a different kind of quality: one wants to rule over others, desires the excellence and greatness for oneself for centuries to come. “Napoleon is still remembered, and I want to surpass him so I’m remembered for thousands of years.”

There are no limits to our egoism. Egoism is ready to do away with everyone, ready to destroy the entire planet and itself along with it. Such is the negative force of a disconnection.

On the other hand, the development of the universe, the earth, and nature in it indicates that we lack the positive force of connection, bestowal to others, and balance. But not just on a level of material exchange.

First of all, we must correct our attitude, our approach, our heart that is completely poisoned by egoism. It’s necessary to add a good part, to correct our way of thinking, our criteria, the way we look at things, everything that we feel, everything that causes us to respond.

My desire, my mind, and my senses need correction, addition, fulfillment, and balance. This crazy “left hard rudder” negative separation, I want to balance the “right hard rudder” with positive unity. We can’t allow the imbalance to occur in one-way or another; balance is what is necessary here. After all, the balance of two forces gives us development of life.

Question: What will happen to my desire to be the master of the world?

Answer: You will feel that the whole world is yours. The entire system will be felt, understood, and intended for your work. And now, you form the whole world, in fact, all the worlds, parallel universes, and more.

Question: Does this mean that the positive force doesn’t limit me?

Answer: On the contrary, it’s the force of the true dissemination in breadth without getting anything in return. I exit myself, my limitations, and then see the natural phenomena that weren’t previously recognized.

After all, I felt everything in my egoism, and while coming out with the help of the second force, I see what actually occurs in nature, beyond the perception of the five senses, beyond the limited range of measuring instruments. I feel nature as it is.

Unlike animals, this positive force doesn’t limit us. Instead, we are limited by the negative force that causes each of us to benefit from everyone around. I’m always close-minded in regards to the view of the world, I don’t comprehend anything outside, and I consider everything through the prism of personal gain.

Is it possible in such conditions to enjoy the beauty, to see something good, to perceive something? No. There is a constant craving towards the receiving that gnaws me, the unfortunate one. I just don’t know how to objectively look at the world.

However, according to the program of nature, we must start finding the good, positive force for the overall balance. And if we are behind, then we steadily and methodically immerse into problems due to which our lives become more unbalanced.

Question: How does the required balance of the two forces look like in a perfect condition?

Answer: I use the force of receiving in a balanced state, taking all that others give me, on the other hand, I give people all that is required of me.

Thus, all the abundance that exists in reality goes through me, and I feel really fulfilled and perfect. I attain and feel everything that is in all worlds, in parallel universes, and so on.

Everything that passes through me goes to others, and then I live an eternal life at the stage of a Man (Adam). Now I exist along with everyone else in these systems. Let my body die, but I don’t die, my mind is alive, and it still sees life through a common system. This is how eternal life is attained.

Question: Can each person obtain an eternal consciousness?

Answer: Anyone who wants to. In the end, all of us will achieve this, but in different ways: some intellectually and knowingly and some “under duress.”

In conclusion, man today is the worst animal of all. It’s no coincidence that he was created last. One must fulfill and compensate oneself. This is how a person reaches the stage of the “crown of creation.”
