Answer: Because we are created in the egoistic desire of “I”: I desire, I want, I exist. If this desire was not in us, we would not feel either ourselves or the world at all in the form in which we exist.
The problem is how to compare ourselves and the world around us so that it is clear to us what we do perceive correctly, what we do not see in the correct way, how one can bring oneself closer to the correct perception of the world, and how to change the perception of the world inside you.
We cannot change the world, but we can change ourselves, our perception so that the world would seem to us the way we want. I can, like on a computer or TV, change channels and see a different world.
Question: Are the perception of the external world and of oneself opposite things?
Answer: It depends on the way you calibrate yourself.
Question: Is the purpose of this separation to connect everything back?
Answer: Yes. In fact, the world is not a multi-channeled, not multi-phased, but we inside ourselves, we are. Therefore, it all depends on how I switch myself, what exactly I want to see in the world, how much I can bring myself closer to the correct picture of the world, how much I can separate the wheat from the chaff, that is, separate the true, correct perception from the false, distorted one, and exist in this way.
