Why is there such a vast distance, such a discrepancy, between material life and spiritual? The fact is that these are two different worlds, a completely different form of existence, a different goal. Two different programs operate in them: work for the sake of receiving and work for the sake of bestowal.
There is nothing more opposite to each other than these two principles. We are trying to somehow connect these worlds with our mind. But actually, it is possible to comprehend them only by faith above knowledge, that is, just above egoistic reason.
