Understanding Universality

Below are a series of videos and explanations from the site, a site sent to us by one of our readers (who lives in Israel!). The site illuminates through interesting captions and videos some truths and considerations about what we know and don't know about the Universe around us, and ideas on why we should get better acquainted with it. We included one Youtube video just to further illustrate a point they make.

For further exploration into this subject, check out the beautiful spiritual community Agape at the website below. If you live in LA or visit LA, you should check out one of their Sunday or Wednesday services!

Life works in such a way that all cells must become mutually dependent on each other in order to build a living body. Nature created a regularity by which the adhesive that joins the cells and the organs as a living body is the relationship of mutual consideration among them. Thus, it follows that the force that creates and sustains life is a force of giving and sharing. Its objective is to create a life based on a mutually considerate existence, harmonious, and balanced among all its elements.

Humanity can benefit from seeing examples of mutual dependency in nature, in order to inspire us to develop such relationships among ourselves. By achieving mutual consideration, trust and love among people, we will discover a whole new life of balance, harmony and completeness.

Herein lies a delicate, intricate, and at the same time, wise and kind thought: Nature’s plan. We need to come to understand this thought and realize where it is leading us, instead of attempting to constantly run away from the suffering. The crisis is a digression from the correct goal of nature, which we in turn experience as correction. However, if we do not view this correction properly, as a correction that is bringing us onto nature’s correct path, and instead we try to steer in a different direction, then the next time, we will trigger an even greater negative reaction, a deeper crisis, and a greater correction onto ourselves.

However, if we begin to correct ourselves even slightly, if we wish to change because we will not be able to survive otherwise, even if we simply desire it in our thoughts, we would reach correction and equivalence with nature. Imagine a young child who didn’t want to do what was right, and then made a decision to do as his parent wished in order to avoid hardships. The moment the child makes this choice, the attitude of the parent towards him changes.

The current blows and the crises that are storming down upon us are of a global nature. They are directing us to a global goal. Humanity has grown to a state where we all have the opportunity to realize this, and as such, we are now able to make the right choice.

We live in a multilayered, complicated world consisting of nested levels, one inside of another. Imagine one hundred and twenty-five nested boxes that are each of different quality. We currently exist in the lowest of them.

When we find ourselves in a lower box, we need to rise to a higher box, and then we develop and realize ourselves there, and desire to rise even higher, and higher, until we reach the highest state possible — which is outside all the boxes.

In this highest state, we unleash ourselves into infinity. All people will attain this stage as a result of their material and spiritual evolution.

In actuality, we have no idea what exists outside of us. We experience the world from within ourselves, and we can never actually feel what is outside.

For instance, I hear a sound, and let’s suppose that there is some influence, or some source that creates a sound wave. The sound wave travels into my ear, hits the membrane, and initiates an electrical current and chemical reactions that my brain interprets as sound. By comparing what I now hear, with the prior experiences that are recorded in my brain, I realize that I hear some sound. In other words, I perceive the sound wave that’s outside of me indirectly, after it was processed thousands of times inside of me. What I perceive is not the actual signal that exists outside of me.

This is a simple example of why we are unable to actually determine what is outside of us. We can only describe what we perceive. However, this is all meant to bring us to a realization that this type of an existence is insufficient for us. We thus reach a conclusion that in order to leave the boundaries of our world we need a new sense, beyond our five senses, that will allow us to feel the universe on a completely different level, and to enter a new dimension.
