How Much of Reality Can We See?

In our inborn egoistic desires, we see a tiny picture of reality that divides into an external and an internal picture. If we shift from an egoistic perception to its opposite of bestowal and love, internalizing what we now perceive as being outside of us, then our perception expands to a much fuller picture.

Our egoistic desires act deliberately as an obstacle in our path to a clear picture of reality. They project our inner reality outwardly, showing it to us as if it exists outside of us.

In our present moment, we feel only our inanimate, vegetative and animate states within. Our human state, however, we sense outside of us because of our egoistic attitude to reality. That is, by wishing to use what is outside of us for personal benefit alone, we detach in our perception from the threads of love and bestowal that connect us humans into a single entity.

By connecting to external objects and people, accepting them as our own, participating with them—even out of love—then to such an extent we feel them within, like how a mother feels the fetus within herself. Likewise, to the extent that we internalize what was previously outside of us, the universe enters us.

The end of human development is defined by reaching the whole universe entering into our perception. It is the culmination of our positive connection with nature, i.e., when the entirety of nature enters us, we feel it within us and become its integral parts. We then feel the totality of these impressions and parts within us as part and parcel of our balance and harmony with nature, i.e., with nature’s highest common thought.
