Question: The great physicist Albert Einstein said: “A human being, is a part of the whole, called by us “Universe,’ a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings as something separated from the rest — a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole nature in its beauty. Nobody is able to achieve this completely, but the striving for such achievement is in itself a part of the liberation and a foundation for inner security.”
Do you agree with this statement?
Answer: Statements are good. But they are so streamlined that when you start to understand them, you come to the conclusion that you are thinking about completely different things, events, reasons, and solutions. And it turns out that everything seems to be right as it should be, everyone agrees, but in the end, they come to the point that they run in different directions.
Question: Indeed, we talk about love for others, about unity, but we see that it is getting worse and worse.
But unity and love were spoken about thousands of years ago. All religions are built on this. Today, even scientific research is being conducted on this topic. And although a person is very pragmatic, he sees that unity can benefit us. But where are we, where is this unity, where is this love for others?
Answer: Our egoism does not allow us to submit to each other. If at one moment I submit to you, then the next moment I don’t want to submit, I try to get away from it, try to snatch something for myself.
Look at the agreements made between countries, governments, and within governments. How many laws exist in each country for each act, for each movement of a person? And who monitors their implementation? And what can we do within these laws?
People do nothing but invent new laws, write them down, and put them on shelves. And then, when necessary, they pull them out using all sorts of hook-making methods and begin to prove that this law exists and that it must be activated. In this way, they want to suppress others.
We understand these movements of our egoism that want to subjugate everyone. These egoists stand in governments with such pride, trying to suppress others by so-called parliamentary methods. But how long can these things be tolerated and how long can they continue to exist?
