Win Or Lose?

Dr. Michael LaitmanQuestion: In our world, people strive to win: I am ahead of everybody; I am the greatest; and so on. When does a person win and when does he lose in the world of common integral mind?

Answer: Let’s remove the entire perception of our world as selfish and hence totally unrelated to the next state—the human degree. This means that everything we experience in our world as food, sex, family, wealth, fame, power, and knowledge is an empty zero at the next level.

The next state is a filter through which only purely altruistic processes may pass, meaning actions excluding any personal benefit, aimed solely for the benefit of others. You have to become one with others, feel their desires as your own, in order to be able to fulfill them.

Question: What is considered winning in the integral state, and does it imply losing?

Answer: There could be victories and defeats, yet all of them lead to winning nonetheless because a defeat is merely a discovery of some flaw, a lack of certain instruments that can help you become corrected and move on.

Question: What are these tools?

Answer: They are forces, properties, the power of bestowal, your connection with others, communication with nature, comprehension of the spiritual environment you are placed in.

Basically, there is only one tool—the property of bestowal; but it has many, various functions.
