Answer: We are in egoism. It is called our world, which we feel within ourselves.
Our lower world exists only so that we could ascend from it to the upper world, to give us a starting point to which we can fall and rise again, each time bouncing from it to the higher degree of the upper world.
Question: If we live in the world of egoism, how can we use it more effectively in order to come to spirituality?
Answer: We have to use our egoistic world because we need to exist in it physically. However, the rest of our attention should be turned to our state in the group. It is precisely on our connection with each other that creating the spiritual Kli, vessel, the spiritual network of forces in which the Creator will be revealed depends.
