The Essence And The Root Of Unity, Part 9

Laitman_200.04Why Change Your Natural Egoism?

Question: It is said that we humans look at the world through the prism of our egoism. Could you give an example of this?

Answer: I cannot give an example because everything I see in the world, I see through my feelings: how pleasant or unpleasant it is for me. Otherwise, I cannot see anything.

I would not see anything around me if I did not subconsciously, instantly, assess how close or far it is from me, from my egoism, from my desire for comfort and various sensations.

Question: Why change it if nature created us this way?

Answer: This is our natural development. The desire to enjoy is imprinted in us; it is our nature. So if I evaluate something, see something, hear something, and feel something, it is only in this desire.

Question: Wouldn’t it turn out that if we change all this, it would be against nature, the Creator?

Answer: It will be against our current nature, but it will take us to the next degree. We will evaluate everything not as it is seen in our eyes, but as it is seen in the eyes of the next, higher degree. Then we will climb it.
