To Develop My “I”

537When a child asks his parents where he came from, we begin to explain it to him at the level of physiology, from mom and dad. 

However, there is a clear cut between our “I” and our body, which has nothing to do with this “I.” It is just that we have not developed our “I” yet and consequently we identify it with the body. In fact, there is no connection between them! Kabbalah says that we need to break away from the material body and rise above it.

These are not all sorts of meditations, but the exit of one’s “I” from the body to existence in a completely different attainment, in a different sense of space, in the feeling of a different life. It is not limited by our pulse, that is, by time, motion and space, which my five bodily sense organs capture, is not limited by my box of flesh.

I begin to feel everything through different sensory organs of my “I.” They are called the five organs of spiritual perception because it really is a spirit, a level above the body.
