Question: What happens to my sensations in the five corporeal sensory organs during spiritual attainment?
Answer: Our corporeal sensory organs are so small that they become almost invisible. What do you have left of your childhood? You sometimes remember maybe some episodes and that is it because everything is suppressed by other bigger impressions.
Answer: This world partially disappears from our sensations, since it is the opposite of the world we will come to. Our world is egoistic, built on opposition, hatred, suppression, on the destruction of one another.
And the spiritual world is built on harmony, mutual help, mutual complementing, unity, and connection with each other.
Therefore, instead of our world, a completely different connection between the elements of creation appears.
But all the same, the impression from our world, from its opposites, and from its evil does not completely disappear. It enters that new world and helps make it more convex and brighter precisely in contrast with our world.
