Question: Is it possible to say that the Light of the Creator obscures from me the illusion of the border that separates me from the outside world? After all, if you scrutinize the gap between “me” and “not me,” there is no separation.
At what age does a person acquire the illusion of separation of me from not me? Does it happen in the process of child’s education or is it inherent in us from birth?
Answer: I would prefer not to talk about the feelings a fetus experiences in the mother’s womb. It can just confuse you and possibly give additional space for your imagination. I don’t think it is necessary.
The problem is that as long as we remain in our egoism, the smaller the egoism, the wider the space we are in. Our smallest egoism is in the mother’s womb of course. Moreover, the most universal egoism that transforms into altruism, above yourself, starts to manifest itself when we build some similarity to Mother Nature around ourselves, with which we become one.
Reality pushes us in this direction for us to start feeling all of nature as something integral and immense where we reside so we could perceive nature as one big mother’s womb and develop in such a way.
But for this, we must first achieve complete interconnection with each other because all of humanity should represent one united organism, the embryo, which exists inside Mother Nature.
If we achieve this, we will find ourselves in an absolutely comfortable state in which we will know everything. It is written that “the embryo in its mother’s womb, sees the world from one end to the other,” sees absolutely everything. The whole Light is contained in him, penetrates him, and he exists above all restrictions.
This opportunity exists only when we envision ourselves all together as one spiritual organism that resides in one spiritual nature.
