Reward And Punishment In Our Lives, Part 6

laitman_423_01In the modern world, people are becoming evermore individualistic and with this we discover ourselves increasingly tied to each other, even though these ties do not bring us any benefit.

There was a time when we thought that we would continue to uncover more of the world: we discovered new continents and international trade. But ultimately it ended in great disappointment.

Humanity’s entire development was only geared toward finding ways to egoistically exploit nature in a one-sided fashion, not taking into consideration its interests. And that’s why our development was always negative.

We see that it brought us to a state where, on the one hand, humanity can provide complete fulfillment for itself with all kinds of material pleasures on the level of the body, its animal level, while at the same time, it suffers more and more on the human level.

As a result we do not know what to do with ourselves. We suffer psychologically and spiritually from the lack of correct connection between ourselves and with the rest of existence.

Question: How, then, do we behave correctly in this system so that we could actually reach a positive result?

Answer: We need to reach an integrated state. That is, we need to take into account the entire system, how it works, how we can be its integral components, and through our actions, bring it to balance and unity.

Because right now it is we who are bringing it out of balance, like cancer cells. Cancer in our bodies is symbolic of cells that think only of themselves and therefore they destroy the entire body and themselves along with it. An individual does exactly the same thing; that’s why we need to study.

We live in a special period of evolution when people finally begin to ask about the meaning of life, about the system governing us, and about how to understand, uncover, and actively engage with it.

Question: How does the transition from ordinary calculation happen when I count the absence of desired fulfillment as punishment and its reception as reward, to a new calculation for the entire system, disregarding what I need personally?

Answer: This depends on upbringing. If we receive integral education and begin to sense the system, then we will change our calculation.

What does an infant lack compared to an older child? An older child takes into account more factors of his existence: relative to the father, the mother, school, other people, friends, and neighbors. And that is why he interacts differently with reality. It is still relatively limited, but not as much as for the infant, it is already more developed. This is exactly the kind of developed relationship we need to learn. Without integral education and the development of sensory organs that enable us to reveal the system, we will not be able to progress further. The system demands our active, aware participation, not blind actions.

Question: Many think that they can receive the reward of benevolent response from nature in return for their good behavior. Is it so?

Answer: This is very correct, we only need to figure out what constitutes good behavior. This is impossible to understand until we, at least minimally, get to know the system, each time advancing more and widening our circle. Then only within this framework, within the boundary of the circle, where I understand, sense, and can make correct decisions, do I act. And I do not yet go outside the boundary of this circle.
