Shades Of The Perception Of Reality

laitman_754Question: Why do the spiritual forces produce physical and not spiritual images within me?

Answer: Spiritual forces don’t produce anything in you, even though that is what we say. A person, a bee, a snake, like all other animals, all of them look at the world with their eyes and each of them sees it in his own way. A snake may perceive the world as fields of heat, a bee in the form of a honeycomb, and so on.

Why do people think that we see everything in the same way? It is only because we are educated together, filling our minds and memories with all kinds of pictures of this world, and we generally look at it as if produced identical images for us. But in fact, we cannot compare them.

Even a Kabbalist who begins to attain the upper world, perceives it with a personal characteristic and inclination, his individuality. Even though he compares his image with others, the images are impossible to compare, they can only be described. Therefore, we compare our descriptions and not the image itself that exists within us. This picture is completely personal for each one, and we have no possibility of comparing them with what is seen by others.
