In order to allow us to attain the spiritual goal, we are brought to a special place with special books and a special environment. This is because the meaning of life can only be attained when a person transcends its boundaries.
Thus, we have to discover the forces, the abilities, the attributes, and the emotions that are beyond the boundaries of our life—beyond the boundaries of the universe. These are totally different attributes that can only be attained thanks to a special environment in which everyone else also wants to transcend the sensation of this corporeal life.
A person is initially given very little power, a very small desire. In order to transcend the boundaries of this life and to rise above it, he needs great powers. These are not egotistic powers, but rather the powers of bestowal that are contrary to everything that is in him.
So, a person is brought to a special environment in which he builds a special relationship and discovers his desire to bestow. Although bestowal doesn’t seem attractive at first, with time, he gets the right impressions and understands that with the help of the power of bestowal, he can fulfill his desire to feel life outside the body.
In order to fulfill his dream, a person needs to have a great power of bestowal. This is why he is given a chance: “Please, act! You are among other people, you don’t want to have anything to do with them, and you don’t want to bestow upon them. This is clear. So you should regret that you can’t do that because without it, you will not have control over your own life.”
Thus, a person begins to think whether this is a good deal or not. Sometimes, he agrees because he sees that it is the only possible way, and, having no other choice, he is compelled to accept it. He is ready to reach bestowal if only in order to rise above this life.
Eventually, however, one begins to understand that the power of bestowal he receives from the environment is the essence of his spiritual life. It isn’t some down payment that he is ready to make in order to later receive spiritual life in his egotistic desire. No, it is the power of bestowal itself that gives him the upper, spiritual life and new sensations.
