Does “transcending” mean to withdraw from the world?
Spiritual transcendence does not mean leaving the world; quite the contrary in fact, it means penetrating more profoundly into the world. It also does not mean cessation of relating with others. Transcending is doing or acting without an attempt to impose one’s person in any given situation. In other words, transcending consists in doing without attributing a central place to one’s self, and without preoccupation or concern of the impression we give of ourselves through our actions –doing selflessly for the better good of all.
