Will Penguins Help Us?

627.2Question: When arctic temperatures drop down to -40 degrees and the wind speed is 40 meters per second, penguins gather into a circle and slowly move around the circle. The warmest ones in the middle of the circle switch places with the colder ones standing at the edges. And they continue this way until the storm passes. They survive thanks to each one’s care for every other one in extreme conditions.

Can we humans adopt this skill that penguins have?

Answer: No, of course not. What we see in the animal kingdom is the expression of natural laws and not freedom of will.

Question: So this is not the penguins’ freedom of will?

Answer: No, of course not. I do not switch places with someone because I think I should give up my spot to him. I switch places with him because this natural law is present inside of me and it directs me on how to act.

Question: Am I driven by instinct to switch places?

Answer: Yes.

Comment: So, the penguin is warm and comfortable, yet it goes into the cold, into the storm, and gives up its place to another penguin to warm up instead of himself. You are saying that this does not exist in man.

My Response: It cannot. We do not have such a law.

Question: Can we develop it within ourselves?

Answer: Go ahead, love your neighbor, and everything will be good.

Comment: In principle, they say that there is a core inside the Earth and the Earth rotates around it. You are describing this law in a similar way; the core is everything and the foundation of everything. And you can answer any question, in principle, with this sentence?

My Response: But this is the central law of nature.

Comment: Yet at the same time you say that it is difficult to achieve this.

My Response: To realize, agree, and accept it as the true solution to all our problems, that is not easy.

Comment: Nevertheless, sooner or later we will be obligated to achieve it.

My Response: We will achieve it.

Question: Is there a way to circumvent it?

Answer: No, of course not. However, it is written that this will happen by way of inconceivable suffering. But where can we escape?

Comment: So, we will be able to leave the warm spot and give it up to another person, for them to warm up, only if there will be love between us.

My Response: Yes.
