Question from the Internet:
“In what way have you been connected with the world around you? Give at least two scenarios that depict your connectedness to your environment.”
There are indeed 2 scenarios of how we could connect to the environment, to the world.
We can connect to the world around us through our usual, instinctively egocentric, subjective viewpoint, expectations, when we make all calculations only for 100% selfish benefit based on the original “pleasure/pain” software.
Through this approach we get a very limited and distorted perception, picture of reality, as we sense, experience only what our subjective ego filters and then manipulates for its own consumption.
Since by default we all approach the world this way, this is causing all the problems we can increasingly observe around us, especially now, that we have evolved into a globally integrated, interdependent world.
We can learn and practice a different approach, through a unique, purposeful, and practical method in a special environment.
We can learn how to approach, sense, see, experience reality through the desires, needs, and viewpoints of others, to the point of “exiting ourselves”, rising above our own sphere which remains as a background, reference point for comparison.
But against the original viewpoint, picture this way we can develop and tangibly feel a completely different, undistorted, objective, full perception, picture of reality to such an extent, that we gain a sense of existence without the illusory, egocentric, and subjective limitations of time, space and motion.
I have been studying, developing this second method through, with the help of other, like-minded, mutually supportive, and mutually complementing people for a while.
