Answer: Altruism is the opposite side of egoism. Egoism is when everything is directed to me, my beloved, and altruism is when everything from me is to my beloved, outside of me, to all of humanity. Egoism is inward; altruism is outward.
Question: How do I learn this?
Answer: It is impossible to learn this. This requires a special environment, a Kabbalistic environment. To do this, you need to study practical Kabbalah, which causes certain forces in nature that transform you from an egoist to an altruist. They invert you to the opposite. You become a being with reverse thoughts, desires, actions, intentions, and goals. All in the opposite direction.
Question: If everything depends on the force changing us, then what depends on me?
Answer: Desire. Nothing more. I want to be different. I am convinced that the egoistic forces are negative, harmful; they lead me and everyone else to death, to extinction. And only altruistic forces can revive us, save us, give us a new life.
