A question I received: There are three-dimensional images where at first you see the superficial image, but as you defocus your vision, you discover the depth of the image. How do we transfer our focus from this world onto the spiritual world?
My Answer: You have to try to acquire the quality of bestowal instead of the quality of reception. The world is a result of your vision, and is built within you by your qualities. Once you change these qualities, you will discover a different world.
The ascent up the degrees of the spiritual worlds happens by constantly changing your inner qualities.
