Setting Examples Of Bestowal
We can’t even imagine how much the environment in which we grew up has shaped us for life. We were constantly exposed to examples of how to profit in our egoistic desire. This is how the others conducted themselves, and from them we learned to do the same. We never received a single example of how to perform acts of bestowal! That is so even when we were taught “good” behavior or it was explained that certain behaviors were in our best interest.
In other words, we were constantly receiving egoistic examples. The program of reception aimed at securing an egoistic gain was simply “embedded” into us. Then a habit became a second nature, and now I can’t see the world in any other way. Possibly, if I saw the world in waves of bestowal, instead of reception, I would see a completely different picture. Who knows, maybe I would see something which I presently cannot discern?
I simply grew up and became like I am. Now, an enormous work is required in order to transform my nature. But perhaps the time will come when children will be growing up in a different way, in an environment of teachers, parents, family members, and society in general in which everybody relates to each other completely differently: altruistically. Then children would be influenced in this altruistic manner.

do we have time to implant such thing? my son is one year and half old, i wish so much that something like would be happening right now for him and for all the children all over the world. But “there isn’t none else besides him”, and it is already happen.
YES I UNDERSTAND,WE IN OUR SOUL DEVELOPMENT MUST UNDERSTAND THE BOTH SIDES BAD AND GOOD THIS IS HOW WE GROW…WE CAN NOT UNDERSTAND THAT WE ARE ENTIRELY EGOISTS IF WE ARE NOT EGOISTS AND THAN BECOME OFFER OF OUR EGOISTIC DESIRE IN OUR SOCIETY AND OUR SYSTEM AND THAN WE START OUR CRY FOR HELP BECAUSE OF SUFFERING AND THAN ONLY THAN WE HAVE A CHANCE TO START IMAGINING A NEW WORLD WITHOUT SUFFERING AND WE START OUR PATH TOWARDS OUR POINT IN THE HEART…
MY DOTER RENATA SHE IS NOW 8 YEARS OLD,SHE WAS BORN WITH THE POINT IN THE HART 4mm HAHAHAHA BUT OF COURSE THIS IS NOT THE POINT IN THE HEART WE ARE TALKING ABOUT IN KABBALAH.YES THERE IS NONE BESIDES HIM…BUT THEY HO DO NOT REALIZE THEIR PURPOSE IN THEIR LIFE SPIRITUAL ASPECT IN ALL OF THEIR INCARNATIONS THEY ARE LOST…
EVEN IN BESTOWAL WE ARE STILL DRIVEN BY OUR EGOISTIC DRIVING FORCE BUT WE ENJOY BY GIVING…
