Question: What is the correct act of dissemination?
Answer: The correct act is when I don’t take account of what is good for me and what is bad for me. I disconnect myself from it, like a judge who must be neutral and only look at where I can bring the most effective benefit and bestowal.
In accordance with it I evaluate all possibilities, go and carry them out. And the more that I hold myself above the calculation of how pleasant or not this will be for me, not figuring out what I will get in the end, the higher my state is.
You should try not to focus on yourself, as if you are under a local anesthetic for pain. As if they gave me an injection of anesthetic and now I don’t feel if it’s bad or good for me. I have detached from myself as if everything is numb inside of me from the anesthesia, all sensations of pain have disappeared.
And then I have the possibility of thinking only about what I see and hear, and inside I don’t feel pain, happiness, or pleasure. Imagine that they gave you a numbing injection, that you stopped sensing the taste of the food and now eat because it is necessary to eat. You even check the clock: “I have been eating for ten minutes, this means that it’s enough.” You do not feel satiated or hungry.
Try to work like this and you will see that you will begin to work in the right way. This is even if you aren’t given anything like this to do from Above, you should give yourself an opportunity for overcoming. As an exercise, this is very useful.
