Our attitude towards reality is defined by our level of advancement. We have to examine and cultivate our approach towards reality since otherwise we will remain at an animate level and won’t reach the speaking state. We start forming the speaking level by asking ourselves a question: How do we relate to this realm?
Either we perceive only what we see around us, the physical nature, or we realize that Nature has a will, a desire of its own to bring benevolence to creation; it also has a program and a goal. Do we realize that nature methodically and purposefully influences us? In this case, we are obligated to act in accordance with the laws of nature and to “comply” with them. We become responsible for our destiny, for our future, which directly depends on the conditions and states that we arrange for ourselves.
This is where our work in this world begins: “Will I drag myself through a miserable existence making attempts to avoid sufferings until I die? Or do I want to learn the program, the goal, the process, and to become able to participate in the course of events thoughtfully, rationally, and thus become a person who can make an impact? Can I influence the environment and receive corresponding reactions?” Then, I voluntarily start working with nature, the force that stands right in front of me.
That’s the whole point. He who wants to know this force is called the human being (Adam), similar to it. After all, these people, according to their task, build themselves in the likeness of this upper force that created and set all laws. We want to know its laws and act according to it, in tandem with it. That is our goal, and we become partners on the path towards it.
Conversely, those who do not reveal it, regardless of their views about nature and the highest stage, remain on the “animal” level.
