The pyramid upon which all of nature is based includes four levels: still, vegetative, animate, and human, and it exists inside every person. It is always inside a person, which means that he always combines all the desires within. Therefore, he should always take into account and realize that he has to build up his desires in the form of this pyramid or according to this scale of priorities.
You cannot detach from reality completely and soar up to the spiritual world. That would be wrong! It would mean that you do not control, see, and feel your desires. You have to see the whole system and know which level every one of your desires belongs to: still, vegetative, animate, or human.
Clearly, I need help from the environment and the Upper Light, but this entire spiritual structure must be “in front of me.” Even if I make a mistake and sin by accidentally making an egoistic calculation, I must be fully conscious of what is happening.
The whole world as well as every person is built according to this pyramid. Through these pyramids of desires we unite with each other. We cannot correct anything in this world until we unite the tops of our pyramids in their highest point by uniting together with each other and with the Creator.
Then everything will balance out and unite into one system. Only inside this higher point of unity will we be able to unite our pyramids of desires correctly. We will discover that all of our desires and qualities are good and necessary when they unite together and we complement each other to become one whole!
