        Homo Erectus and Home Sapiens
       
        God has planned the “manifested” world in such a way that some animals are predators, and others are their potential victims.
        Hunting for their victims, predators improve their qualities in the evolutionary aspect, among which, at the first place, is the intellect. Let us recall, for example, group hunting of packs of wolves, killer whales, and some other mammals.
        Potential victims of predators also improve themselves, participating in ensuring their bodies and bodies of their cubs and friends.
        Just like, many modern people either choose for themselves the role of predators — or they unwittingly become victims.
        That, how God plans our destinies, is determined, first of all, by how we ourselves see our meaning of life and where we direct our attention in life. For example, many see the meaning of their lives in pursuit of earthly riches and a “social position”, or in pursuit of satisfying their greed, aggressiveness, sexuality. In others — on the contrary — dull passivity dominates…
        … But people, who are sufficiently developed in the evolutionary sense, switch their attention from the sphere of interaction with other people on the principle of “predator-prey” — to God in the Aspect of the Creator. And after that, they acquire the fullness of the Protection from the Holy Spirits and actively grow — as souls — under God’s Guidance, obtaining the Divine qualities. In my opinion, only these people deserve the title Homo sapiens — people who are namely reasonable. Yet the rest — so far — just homos erectus — people upright.
        … The meaning of life of both all the diverse beings, and of specifically each of us — consists in the evolutionary development, that is, at the end, after many successful incarnations in material bodies, having reached the Perfection, to flow into the Creator, enriching Him with ourselves.
        It is for this reason, God has placed each of us in the world of matter, having embodied in the human bodies.
        Two major stages of this development of each human soul can be distinguished: a) unconscious, that is, similar to the creatures of the animal level of development, and b) conscious, that is, when God has already become the Main Object in the worldview, the Main Goal for personal comprehension and the Main Personal Teacher. (It is also possible to bear in mind the intermediate, transitional stage. These are people with developed intelligence, but not yet have acquired the true religious knowledge, following in their lives the atheism or religious primitivism.)
       
        Minimum Program and Maximum Program 

      for Spiritual Devotees
       
        What do we need to master from the minimum program — to become like our Divine Teachers?
        — Stability in the Divine subtlety of consciousness.
        — Hugeness of the subtle consciousness.
        — The dominant Mergence (Consubstantiality) with God in His Abode and in the Light-Fiery states of the Holy Spirits.
        — Developed ability for active actions by the Hands of Consciousness.
        The subsequent deification of the matter of the body is a maximum program, which also makes sense.
        In the process of mastering the above, the adept helps others in this and — through it — develops in oneself the aspect of Wisdom.
        … This direction of spiritual work can be identified with the words Modern Developed Hesychasm. Although such terms, as true Sufism and Vajrayana, Raja- and Buddhi Yoga, are also suitable.
       
        Life “According to Cliche” — or Life on Principles, 

      Offered by God
       
        Most people of all countries live in accordance with cliches of behavior that are common to particular sects or human traditions. It is about how to dress, what one can and what cannot do on certain days of the week or on “holidays”, which “religious” movements, prayers, or incantations should be performed. This also includes the religious tradition of mutilating the sex organs of both men and women.
        And after all, homos erectus can be convinced that for all this is the Will of God!
        But what’s the use for God from all this?! He needs us as the Perfect Souls, and not at all as the primitives, observing stupid “rules”, invented by equally stupid people!
        It is often seen how God becomes completely ousted from the worldview of the masses of such pseudo-adepts of religion — with these “rules”!
        … Homos sapiens, wondering, observe how primitive people distort religious truths — right up to the opposite!
        God invites incarnate people to devote their lives to becoming better in accordance with His Doctrine of Love, Peace, Subtlety, Wisdom — but pseudo-pastors can preach (clothed in religious form) violence, murders, bullying, development in themselves the infernal qualities, believing that by this they will deserve a paradise…
        A characteristic example is the relation to beauty, including the beauty of a naked body. The Holy Spirits try to explain to us that the true erotica, which refines souls, is an important device for spiritual perfecting! But there are sects, opposing God, insisting that it is a shame, sinful deeds, leading to hell…
        The same — and with respect to ethically impeccable sex — as a means of refinement of consciousness, comprehension of tenderness, harmony, and peace, the possibility of developing in oneself caring for another…
       
        On Prohibition of Abortions
       
        There is no doubt that abortions are evil. Although are guilty in this, as a rule, namely men, not women!
        To avoid this evil, sexual education of children must be conducted, beginning before the age when pregnancies become possible.
        Also adult fighters against abortions are not able to understand that there is no and there cannot be a murder of man by an abortion! Can be killed — only the rudiment of the human body!
        One of the foundations of elementary spiritual illiteracy is the lack of understanding that man is not a body! Man is the soul!
        To kill man — in the truest sense of the word — there is no possibility! People do not have ways to kill man-soul — neither by abortion, nor by any other way!
        Although God usually does not give people the right for killing human bodies.
        … To those, who intend to continue the fight against women, who want to part from unwanted pregnancies, I can offer a more radical slogan: “Ban menstruation!”. Every menstruation indicates the death of an egg, from which the “man” could come out!
        (But how it could be implemented, I will not prompt: or someone will seriously insist that all women must be chronically pregnant, then there will be almost no menstruation.)
 

        On Implanting Dementia
       
        In one of the books known historically (I will not name it, so as not to offend involuntarily any of my readers), such a “moralizing” story was told:
        In a certain area, a crop failure occurred. Habitual food was scarce. Monks, living in solitary hermitages, began to starve.
        It was at the beginning of the summer, green sprouts were growing, including in vegetable gardens…
        And so, one of the starving monks came to visit another and asked to give at least something for food…
        He was offered a crust of moldy bread…
        The monk ate this bread — and then writhed from the severe pain in his stomach.
        But, in gratitude for this sincere gift, he spent a whole day weeding the beds of the second monk…      
        … What are the mistakes here?       
        The first is that moldy bread should never be eaten! And, moreover, no one should ever “give away” it to others! Unlike some other types of molds — molds, growing in bread, always cause severe damage to the digestive system!
        But the second mistake is more indicative from the point of view of human stupidity. At the beginning of summer, masses of fully edible green plants grow everywhere, which can be eaten both raw and cooked, and dried or salted for future use! Including, those plants which were weeded out and thrown away by the first monk, could be used for food!…
        I met people who walked their feet on food, but ached because “there is nothing to eat!”. Under their feet, were glague, nettle, wild cereals… Plus — young foliage on the trees. But those people were unshakably convinced that food is only what is sold in a shop, plus what is “accepted” to grow or be collected in a forest!
        … One day, in the years of my criminally unreasonable youth, I shot black grouse, which had been before wounded in the wing by another hunter. He was deprived of the opportunity to fly up on birches — to eat the usual food for black grouse in the autumn: birch catkins.
        In the stomach of that unfortunate bird was… usual grass. This bird showed itself smarter than that homo erectus, who was in the mentioned book presented to readers as a model for imitation…
      
        “Religion” — against God?
       
        We have already discussed that some “religious” rules and customs, invented by people who are very far from God, are — from God’s point of view — destructive, harmful.
        I will give one more example:
        There is an opinion in a primitive sectarian social environment that any attempts to become better are unacceptable, because they can evoke pride (pride because of one’s own achievements). And pride, they say, is the most terrible sin!
        So people of vice justify both drunkenness, and any other vices and crimes.
        But the Founder of Christianity taught namely the opposite: for us to become Perfect, how perfect is our Father in Heaven (Mt 5:48)!
        Conclusion: it makes sense to study the Teachings of God and follow it — rather than the opinions of representatives of certain sects.
        However, this requires a level of intellectual development no lower than that of that black grouse…
        So, we should strive to develop intelligence, rather than being content with primitive fun like contemplation of how others play ball, honoring it as the main thing in their lives, and not with false hopes that someone will “pray” for me — and so will save me from all my sins and from hell…
       
        On Sectarian Narrowness of Thinking
       
        Sects are religious associations of people whose worldview differ significantly from the true knowledge about God, His Evolution, and our responsibilities in this regard.
        Moreover, the more primitive the sect, the more aggressively behave its leaders in relation to other religious associations: they have to keep in obedience and retain their “flock”! Because such leaders are “fed” financially from their duped adherents.
        At the same time, “adepts” of the sect can be kept in fear of punishment for attempts to leave the sect or for doubts in it rightness.
        One of the indications of sectarianism is instilling hatred and hostility toward all dissidents and freethinkers.
        It is clear that spiritual success is excluded in this situation: the Creator does not allow people with such pronounced vices to approach Him!
        On the contrary, the development in oneself of the ability to differentiate between truth and falsehood may be conducive to the achievement of spiritual progress. This is called the ability to think critically.
        Personally, I managed to walk the Path to the direct cognition of God — thanks to the fact that even at the very beginning of my spiritual awakening in this earthly life, I defined for myself such credo: “To accept and integrate all the best from all good!”.
        … Once followers of one of these sects started talking to me — with the intention of turning me to their faith. I answered them quite benevolently, agreeing with the right things I saw in their sermons and gently trying to correct in the wrong.
        At the end of our conversation, they offered me to take as a present the brochure printed by their publisher, entitled “What Is the Meaning of Life?” I flipped through it and realized that only this question was put there, yet there were no signs that the authors even approximately knew about the answer themselves.
        I thankfully and politely declined the present and offered to take in response my brochure “Our Meaning of Life”.
        “Here,” — I said, — “the answer to the question, put in your book!”
        … But they… recoiled and waved their hands:
        “No-no! We are forbidden even to keep in hands books that were published not in our organization!…”
       
        Will the Gulf Stream Stop?
       
        The Gulf Stream is, perhaps, the most important oceanic current for mankind of a planetary scale. It carries warm waters from the western equatorial part of the Atlantic Ocean (that is, from the east of Central America) — to the shores of Northern Europe as far as the White Sea. The warmth that makes it warm creates a climate favorable for people living in all the countries which are washed by it, including the Scandinavian region.
        And — if the Gulf Stream stopped, then the climate in the whole of Northern Europe could become the same as, for example, in Chukchi Peninsula or in the north of Eastern Siberia.
        And this topic is discussed at the level of the governments of the countries concerned; many scientists are involved in the relevant studies.
        Discussions on this score were initiated in connection with the “fashion” in regards to “global warming”. Scientists measure the salinity of water in different parts of the Gulf Stream, fantasize about what will happen if the salinity of the water decreases due to the melting of ice in Greenland…
        And for these studies are allocated considerable financial resources of interested states… Although is it not appropriate that at least one of the scientists, involved in these discussions and studies, would think about why this oceanic current exists at all? What is the reason for its existence? What makes colossal volumes of water continuously move for many thousands of kilometers?
        The answer is simple, but to get it, it needs to tear eyes from test tubes with water samples — to much larger global phenomena and processes!
        … Let's start with the consideration of the question of why our planet revolves, setting the usual for us hours.
        The Earth might not rotate, as many other planets probably do not rotate. And then the climate on Earth would be quite different.
        What could make it begin to spin, in addition to the Will for God?
        Clearly, it was an oblique blow on the Earth of a very large cosmic body.
        This blow set the planet in rotational movement.
        But the blow was done precisely on the Earth’s firmament, forcing it to spin. And the noticeable effect of that cosmic body on the low-dens earthly atmosphere did not happen, therefore it remained in a state of inertia, rest.
        So — the planet is spinning, and its great atmosphere — no.
        Thus, the east wind blowing constantly in the equatorial belt of the Earth was formed. It is called the trade wind.
        And at latitudes far from the equator, meteorologists are dealing with turbulences that are formed from the trade winds.
        So, it is desirable to understand that this is not the atmosphere of the planet “blown” by winds, but the Earth is spinning and rubbing against a relatively still atmosphere.
        … Due to this, in fact, we see in the tropical latitudes a constantly blowing powerful wind. And the wind, as many of us know, drives the water in the same direction, creating, for example, (along with the Moon) local tides.
        And so, “the wind drives” throughout the Atlantic Ocean water in the direction to the west.
        But… this grandiose current encounters an obstacle in the form of stretched from the north to the south Americas…
        Where is obliged all this water to move? Here it, having encountered at the obstacle, flows, including, to the north and further to the east.
        … Now, let us think: can the direction of the Gulf Stream change, and can the Gulf Stream stop altogether — under the influence of an insignificant decrease in the salinity of ocean water?…
       
        “Ice Ages”
       
        In recent centuries, the following amazing discoveries have been made, including: in those places where the severe cold constantly reigns, deposits of coal were discovered! It was also found in the depths of the large islands of the Arctic Ocean, and even in Antarctica!
        But in fact, coal in ancient times was formed from the remains of abundant vegetation in the localities with a hot and humid tropical climate!
        On this basis, it was suggested that the climate on our planet periodically changed: there were hot epochs and “glacial periods” when the Earth was completely covered with snow and ice for a long time.
        And now there are battles about how we should be in connection with the “global warming”, which, in fact, is not. There is another: local climate changes in those or other parts of the Earth’s surface. For example, the last winter in north-west Russia was the warmest in decades. But in Yakutia (Sakha) it gets colder and colder. This winter the temperature dropped to minus 61 degrees Celsius! But this is the Antarctic temperature! And the winter cold snap here is the trend of recent years! The northern “pole of cold”, as the experts say, moved from geographically polar latitudes — deep to the south!
        And in the same Antarctica — somewhere it becomes warmer, and in other parts of the continent — colder…
        … In an attempt to come up with an explanation for the total “ice ages”, a hypothesis was advanced that their cause was in volcanic activity. Namely — the most powerful eruptions of volcanoes emitted so much ash into the atmosphere as to prevent solar heat on the surface of the planet.
        But this is not to be tested in practice: is it really that under such conditions the cooling of the Earth’s surface will come — whether ashes in the atmosphere will cause a “greenhouse effect” and, conversely, warming up?
        For example, if the sky at night is covered with a continuous cloudiness, then such nights are much warmer than with a clear sky!
        It is possible to continue to develop this idea. If the atmosphere becomes less transparent, the solar heat will heat up the entire conglomerate of the Earth with its atmosphere, and the ash will prevent the dissipation of heat outside. As a result — not cooling, but warming up the Earth?
        But to test these hypotheses in practice — there is no possibility. Therefore, it is better not to waste time on their further discussion.
        … But how, after all, to explain the mentioned fact of the discovery of coal in the localities with the present “permafrost”?
        In fact — it’s quite simple. Into our planet, in its long history, repeatedly pierced — from different angles to its surface — large cosmic objects. They changed — in one way or another — both its orbit, and the parameters of rotation. The axis of rotation was changed, new poles have been formed, a new equator has been designated, the climate has been totally transformed in accordance with these new parameters. Glaciers formed where the heat had previously dominated… In other places, where there was a cold that seemed to be eternal, the ice melted, tropical vegetation gradually developed, and deposits of organic fossil formed over the millennia of a new climate…
        I emphasize that such local climate transformations occur, of course, not for one day and not for a week, but over much longer stretches of time.
        … The last question that I would like to consider in connection with the topic of climate changes observed on our planet is the influence of nuclear explosions.
        Every such powerful explosion pushes the planet. And because of this, its flight trajectory around the Sun, as well as the speed and the axis of its own rotation, can change. This effect can be especially pronounced if the nuclear explosions are repeated at the same polygons.
        And are not the observed climate changes on the planet — the result of such multiple nuclear explosions?
       
        On the “Glacial Landscape”
       
        This term is mistakenly used to denote a strongly crossed non-mountainous terrain, rich in overgrown forests on ridges and low troughs between them, often parallel to each other. Such a landscape is characteristic, including, for the north of the Karelian Isthmus and some regions of Karelia.
        Once upon a time someone from the low-witted homos erectus from science decided that it was probably during the “glacial period” that the glaciers crept along the land, tracing it. Since then, other homos erectus began to repeat this stupidity thoughtlessly. The term “glacial landscape” entered textbooks, became “universally recognized”…
        … Yes, glaciers are really capable of moving, as if slowly pouring.
        But they “pour” from the mountains, but not across the plain!
        … What is the mechanism of the movement of glaciers?
        In the lower part of the layers of ice, hundreds of meters or kilometers high, there is a tremendous pressure at which ice acquires fluidity similar to dense resin. The entire colossal thickness of the glacier very slowly moves on this “resinous” layer. At the same time, the approaching glacier does not at all resemble a bulldozer’s shovel, and it does not break through deep trenches. And, most importantly, I repeat, glaciers do not “creep” across the plains, but move only along the slopes of the mountains. And there are no mountains at that area or near it!
        … But what, yet, has created such characteristic landscape features?
        … Now this area is covered with forests. But sometime, very long ago, there were only sands, moved by the winds… They formed dunes: sandy hills and ridges flowing under the influence of winds. Then those dunes were gradually fixed with vegetation: they were overgrown with grass, shrubs, then — with trees. As a result, it turned out what we are seeing now.
        Another similar variant of the formation of such a landscape is a marine or oceanic bottom. This bottom is not at all smooth! Even on the bottom sand of a shallow lake, we can observe the ripples, which, however, can change their configuration when the direction of the wind over the lake changes — which accordingly changes the fluctuations of the water column.
        But the most significant transformations of the seabed occur in storms. Even the above-water sandbanks with a length of kilometers and tens of kilometers are formed. One example is the Arabat arrow on the Sea of Azov. Sometimes — after the storms — the parallel to it its smaller duplicates are formed and now. Then they can either disappear under the influence of subsequent storms, or, conversely, strengthen.
        On a scale of geological epochs — the seabed areas could become land… And they grew by vegetative…
        … Yes… Human stupidity creates problems not only in religion, but also in completely materialistic knowledge.
       
        I Had a Wife… (About Jealousy)
       
        Once, long ago, I had a wife — a psychiatrist. She herself called herself my wife, and me — her husband.
        We had met in the classes on mastering the art of psychic self-regulation, which I massively conducted in those years. She came there to study. And one day she invited me to her house.
        Our such relations lasted a year and a half or two years, more precisely I do not remember.
        She before this had run away from her jealous husband, who also did not satisfy her sexually.
        She lived in the suburbs, I — in the city.
        She every time, when she wanted to meet me, called me from work — and in the evening I came. And in the morning, she went to her psychiatric hospital for children, and I returned to the city by train.
        When our free days overlapped, we together searched, found, and studied places of power: just in those years, we received the translations of Carlos Castaneda’s books.
        … In those old years, I thought that for helping others in their spiritual growth, it is most important for me to fill them with my own energy of consciousness. I filled her — and with pleasure saw in her the growth of the volume of the refined and full of emotions of love consciousness. She — as the soul — was already hundreds of meters in diameter…
        I did not understand then that such gifts… do not contribute at all to the growth of a person both intellectually and ethically… But namely this must be the foundation for confident further spiritual growth!
        … She appreciated our relations very much — and repeatedly asked me not to cut them off under any circumstances…
        Moreover, she began to successfully introduce in her medical activity the knowledge that she received through me.
        It was about her, I mentioned in one of my books, how she treated children with autism — by the method of “opening” their spiritual hearts. These children later themselves were eager to perform in front of the audience from the stage at the holidays dedicated to the end of the rehabilitation course.
        … However, over time, she developed “torments of jealousy”, even hallucinations began, the theme of which were my “treasons”: in the classes I conducted, there were so many women!…
        She completely trusted her “visions”…
        Especially these states of hers worsened once during a long summer heat spell…
        In one of these especially hot days, I, having completed one of long and very tiring for me lessons, dropped into the market — to buy tomatoes: to please her.
        … But she… suddenly met me with indignation! She chanted to me:
        “You come to me —
        Already emaciated by sex!”
        … I did not attach much importance to this episode, already having an understanding of her mental characteristics. I had studied psychiatry…
        … But later it turned out that she also slandered me among all her familiar physicians, accusing me of grotesque hypersexuality…
        … And our relations ended so:
        She — having been carried away by her thoughts on my massive “betrayals”, was confused, her mind was “clouded”… And she invited tonight… two men at once: me and one more…
        I came much earlier, we were in bed already for a long time — when suddenly he called at the door… She began to apologize to him, saying that the situation suddenly had changed…
        … He saw me in bed through a reflection in the mirror that hung in the hallway.
        … He left — disappointed, humiliated, undeservedly offended — alone in that dark night. Apparently, forever.
        I — also left forever.
        After all, she used my help — and at the same time “for this” tried to desecrate me… And even she so treated her friend… I did not see the opportunity to help her further.

* * *
        The great Babaji from the Indian Haidakhan designated the following stages of spiritual perfecting:
        Truth (that is, understanding of the essence of God and our relationships with Him) — Simplicity (absence of arrogance, self-conceit, self, humility) — Love (first of all, the emotions of love, love-gifting, obtained through the development of the spiritual heart) — Service to God (through helping people, especially in the spreading of spiritual knowledge) — Cognition of the Supreme Divine I and Mergence with Him.
        Let’s think: how it makes sense to treat the phenomenon of jealousy — in connection with at least the firsts of the indicated principles?
        The principle of Truth implies, in particular, the beginning of work on oneself with the goal of substituting one’s own egocentrism by God-Centrism (we have already talked a lot about this in other articles and books).
        With Simplicity, jealousy also does not fit in any way. It testifies to super-egoism: I am jealous — that means I take away the freedom of another person, I give him or her the place of only a slave…
        None of the people worthy of respect will insist that jealousy is a manifestation of the principle of Love. No: jealousy is precisely a perverted love, a love for oneself. It is a primitive passion, a gross vice, from which it would make sense to immediately and forever give up! Approach the Creator by the quality of the soul, having this vice, there is no possibility!
        God will have to educate people with jealousy — by methods that teach humility. And is not it better to start this — voluntarily right now?
       
        To Be a Lord — or a Servant?
       
        I knew a young woman-doctor who dreamed of moving from Russia to a country where a footman would bring coffee to her bed in the morning…
        … But God teaches us to feel ourselves not as lords, but as servants — regardless of our social status, ranks, and held positions.
        If we accustom ourselves to the role of those who sincerely give away our love to other people and to all other kind beings — by our thoughts, emotions, words, and deeds — we, having learned this, can easily establish the same relationships with God. This will give an opportunity to get closer to the Creator by the state of the soul.
        For this, we must take the true knowledge of God and our meaning of life, and also practically master this state of being by the developed spiritual heart.
        Such work on the spiritual transformation of oneself leads to the development of humility — the humble feeling of myself.
        One, who is not humble, lives by one’s own “rules” and “concepts”, but not by the principles of life that God has proposed to us.
        And only the humble-minded get the opportunity to flow into the Creator. A personal “exaggerated” “I” will not allow this to happen: it — interferes.

* * *
        But the principle of humility does not mean stupid behavior, for example; obedience to criminal orders from people of vice…
        … Once on the train an inspector — a loud and aggressive woman of about thirty — discovered that our tickets were not printed to the station where we were going. Although the cost was the same to both stations. Simply the cashier was mistaken, and we did not notice her mistake. I repeat that the journey was paid for by us in full.
        The controller long yelled at us, demanding to pay once again the same amount. Of course, we did not agree. Then she set a guard on us, who grabbed our backpacks and threatened to throw them out of the car at the nearest station. We had to pay.
        When the conflict was thus “settled”, I called the guard and asked him why he behaved this way, complicit in the commission of a crime?
        He replied that he was a soldier and was only following orders from his commander…
        … In defense, in fact, usually officers, who are retired, seek employment.
        It turned out that this former officer, after hearing about the subject of humility, seriously decided to play “a soldier”…
        I replied that, according to the rulings taken at the Nuremberg trial, the execution of a criminal order is a crime.
        He thought about it and did not answer. This had concluded our conversation.
        … But when we drove a few days later in the same train, he saw us and twice came to us with quite sincere tears from his eyes: he begged to forgive for his behavior at that time.
        And he was now working in tandem with another supervisor.
        Since then, we have not seen him again. Apparently, having managed to apologize, he immediately resigned.
        Here it is — sincere repentance, washing away vices! Good luck to you, “soldier”! Both God, and we — have forgiven you!
        … And a month or two later, we met with that criminal inspector. Now she was working on another branch of the railroad.
        She did not apologize, but charged us with a deduction of the amount she then committed as a robbery.
        Thus, both former criminals have become better, though in varying degrees.
        Easy joy arises from the realization that we were involved in this!
        But if in that conflict, we did not reconcile and would have gone along with the aggravation of the conflict — we could not help these people. And we ourselves would have gotten extra problems…
        In this story, you can trace several specific topics. Good luck to you, our readers!
       
        Devils in the Flesh — and Terrorism. 

      And How Do Devils Get?

        Both God and devils are a fully recognizable reality.
        But who are they — devils? And where do they come from?
        If God — in the Aspects of the Creator, also Messiahs and Holy Spirits — is an extremely subtle Consciousness, then devils and demons are the opposite. They are the limit of rudeness. And they are pathogenic in relation to the bodies of incarnate people and other beings.
        Both devils and demons are, first of all, those disembodied people and animals that had developed in themselves — during lifetime(s) in an incarnate state — the infernal qualities: emotional rudeness, aggressiveness, spitefulness. Their destiny is hell, that is, suffering from their own grave states and from communicating with beings like them.
        Devils are big and (in terms of bioenergetics) powerful creatures. Demons are relatively small and weak. Both of them can live outside connection with the world of matter, but they can also penetrate into the bodies of people and animals.
        Devils are strong and can be up to hundreds of meters and even (rarely) much more. But they are still — insignificant in comparison with the Universal Greatness of God. And God controls their activity.
        These creatures can be easily mobile within their coarsest multidimensional strata. And God invisible to them can prompt them to “dirty work” in trying to convince concrete incarnate sinners.
        … But it is important that these creatures of hell are formed precisely in their incarnate state.
        Including, there are very rude people, who are called devils in the flesh.
        These are usually rude men and (more rarely) women seeking to prevail upon other people. And the level of development of intelligence in them can be very different.
        I have met such among the leading pseudo-yogis, pseudo-healers, and among various other scammers. But also — among the “pastors” of some religious trends.
        They seek to dominate, command, control — for the sake of gaining and maintaining their own “glory” and acquiring material benefits.
        To do this, they can quite intentionally build up the coarseness of consciousnesses, seeing how this contributes to the personal success among other embodied people.
        Because they are dominated by gross emotions, they naturally attract into their bodies similar to themselves unincorporated beings. So there are obsessions, aggravating the rudeness and morbidity of these devils in the flesh.
        Oncological diseases and death from them — for such moral monsters are typical.

* * *
        I personally had to withstand the attacks of devils in the flesh more than once.
        In particular, I was hunted by the maniac-killer, the creator of the nazi party, the complete adherent of the worldview of Adolph Hitler. He hated me for the anti-fascist statements in my books, demanded to stop publishing books, to close down the websites, threatened to maim me and my colleagues, to “cremate alive”, many times tried to lure me into personal meetings for the sake of reprisal, even for this I was called to a duel…
        But this is not important in connection with the topic of this essay. The important thing is that he transferred a part of himself over kilometers up to me — and my body shook with his hatred.
        Why did God create such a test for me then? It was also to test my invincibility on the Path of serving Him, and so that, having gained this life experience, I could share it with you.
        How did that situation end? God told me that that nazi leader will soon fall into the pit, he was preparing for me. Then, according to fragmentary information from the media, the situation emerged that he was shot by two true heroes from the Ministry of Internal Affairs who sacrificed themselves in order to cleanse the Earth of this abomination… They — for this feat — themselves received jail terms…
        … Another very memorable situation for me with a devil in the flesh took place only recently.
        A man with a higher education at first very successfully mastered the spiritual Path: he developed himself as a spiritual heart, began to receive Revelations from God, became large — in volume — consciousness.
        But then he was inadequately absorbed in the power aspect of development, began to exert his brutal energy on other people — that they tremble before his “strength”… On warnings from God and on my attempts to reason with him, he reacted according to the formula: “I know myself how it should be!”.
        Then he fell ill with cancer with the defeat of the organs of the manipura’s part of the body…
        When I expressed my opinion to him that he does not have the right to take part in spiritual lives of other people — he reacted with hatred towards me… He “swam” diabolically into my body, transferring to it, including, his cancer energy…
        I did not suffer from this: I merged with the Oceanic Consciousness of God — and stayed in the Bliss of Divine Peace. But the body was dying. And I was quite ready to part with it completely and forever — if the Will of God will be for it. This lasted several days in a row.
        During those days, I had my stomach and pancreas in a state of paralysis.
        In particular, the food was not processed in the stomach due to the cessation of gastric juice production, its fermentation in the stomach began. I had to take tinidazole to suppress microbal growth.
        And the pancreas stopped producing insulin, a diabetic coma was ready to happen at any moment, even if I was just walking in the apartment. I had to live on antidiabetic tablets, it had helped to sustain the life of the body…
        Then he switched to some other of his worries, and his hatred for me gradually weakened.
        … Why do I tell such details from my life experience?
        I share the real mystical knowledge — for, including, people to know, why they themselves and others sometimes get sick, also to broaden the horizons of physicians about the causes of some diseases of their patients.
        But the most important thing is how not to become pathogenic monsters yourself and not be in hell!
        … By the mystical (that is, “clouded”, not explicit for those who can see only the material world) — the life of all beings is permeated.
        The Holy Spirits and Messiahs, for example, create the Standards for the proper tuning by souls with Them. Who has cognized Them and strives to gain a foothold in Their states — that man comes out of the influence of evil, which can be done by the creatures of hell.
        The devils — they show their grossest energy fields, even create powerful negative places of power
        A child can be ill not because of the fact that the body got germs, but because of the gross emotional state of the mother or someone from the environment…
        Adherents of some sects can fall ill because of the “blessings” of their “shepherds”. And, getting sick, those victims are looking for protection and help… from the same devils in the flesh, only aggravating their illness states…
        Devils-chiefs at work or devils-teachers can paralyze with their rough energies the ability to think in their employees or students… I myself experienced this when I was studying in doctoral candidacy. That was an exam on some “soviet” political subject. I then could not clearly answer the topic, which I knew very well… That teacher-devil hated me for “freethinking”…
        One of the causes of inflammation in the gynecological area may consist in the coarse energy of male partners.
        Moreover, even just lust at a distance from the side of a devil in the flesh can produce the same result. I had observed such situations. For example, one of the devils — for obvious reasons — could not find a stable sexual partner-woman. And he was forced to content himself with a sexual attunement with his desired woman, but she knew nothing about it. And because of this, she was ill for a long time…

* * *
        The presented material allows one to “enter the topic” about how people can be classified in, including, devils in the flesh — and their victims.
        And now it’s time to return to the question formulated in the title of this essay. It will be about contemporary “Islamic” terrorism.
        Why suddenly among followers of the religious Teaching about One God for all people, about the corresponding most respectful attitude towards Him, about humility, about reverence for Messiah Jesus (Jesus Christ), about the expediency of taking care not about the nearest material benefits but about the fate in the life after this earthly life, about respectful attitude of people to each other, the need for men to treat women with greater respect than to other men — there appear dominant ideas about the need to kill everyone around, who do not seem to be faithful Muslims, and — for this — “to become worthy of the paradise”?
        How could such an absurdity be born? After all, in fact, all adherents of this perversion — guarantee hell for themselves!
        … Who are the devils in the flesh — we discussed it in detail. But who are their victims, so easily accepting the path to hell under the influence of lie?
        We will see that they are, first of all, the crowds of those illiterate ignoramuses who do not know why they are in bodies on the Earth, who know nothing about God except that He is Akbar (that is, the Great), who did not study the Teaching of the Messiah Isa (Jesus Christ), although the Quran has a recommendation to seek knowledge wherever one can find it…
        And so — there appear powerful devils in the flesh, declaring that Allah (God, in Arabic) orders to kill all “unfaithful” men and turn all women into slaves… For this — Allah will take you to Himself at Heaven where there will be life for you in full contentment and without any hardship!
        So in those crowds of ignoramuses there appears… the “work” and even as if the meaning of life…
        But the word “Islam” means “submission to God”. Hence, the devils in the flesh broadcast, — as a sign of submission before Allah, for the sake of Allah, in the name of Islam — forward! Follow me! Allah — Akbar!…
        … In my opinion, it would be correct not to kill by bombs, missiles, etc. — those unfortunate deceived, but to present, give them true spiritual knowledge. And if to isolate any from society — they are the devils in the flesh.
        It is clear that this process cannot be completed within a week or a month. But it’s necessary to start at some time!…
       
        Hesychasm — and 

      Harmony of Transition to “Other World”
       
        In different ways, people experience the death of their bodies. Someone — at night in sleep, not noticing the “death”. Or — “the heart just stopped”, almost without pain… Others “die” in horrible torments…
        The average person most often dies by the body not on one’s own, but by God, Who sends to ensure the transition “into another world” some among many spirits.
        And how this happens — is determined by the fate of the “deceased”, created by himself or herself. Those who recklessly inflicted in vain pain and death to other beings, although one’s level of development in psychogenesis was sufficient to be able to compassionate with the pain of others and not cause it — to those God shows what is pain — on their own life experience.
        There are still young psychogenetically people who, although they did not become full-fledged puritans, were known as good. Their “death” is easy.
        … Children can be spectators of “deaths”. But they are not yet able to imagine their own “death”: it looks so far away for them that it is not thought to be real. And this — for them — is correct.
        How to explain to them someone’s “death”? It is quite convenient to tell the truth: a person does not die at all, but only goes to live in a disembodied world — a world of non-incarnate people. Only the body dies — and this does not mean much for that person.
        And crying, grieving over someone’s “death” — this means protesting against the Will of God. The theme “Why did you leave me?” — this is the manifestation of someone’s own stupid egoism.
        After all, a good individual guaranteed for himself or herself the good destiny “in another world”; he or she is there — well! Why protest against this?
        … But, when one “is already over thirty” — it’s time to think about one’s own future “death” more seriously. It’s time to ask questions: “What does God expect of me?” What do I have time to do — both in serving Him, and in my own development?”
        … I will share my experience of a never-ending up to now bodily dying.
        The first time it happened when I was gossiped by a gang of primitives, directed and supported I will not tell by whom. Then, after the attack, I was dying in severe pain for about six months. This culminated in two clinical “deaths”.
        What for? — For the non-repentance of every sin of killing animals.
        Why? — To cognize the reality of life without a body. And — to be convinced in the unpromising results of trying to help spiritually — the idle crowd…
        In those years, I had just finished cleaning the chakras and the main meridians and for the first time got acquainted with the Holy Spirits, Which to some extent condensed Themselves — specifically to be visible for me.
        Because in those years, I was still an insignificant in size consciousness, I could not tear myself away from the body — so far as to not feel the pain. And — tasted it in its entirety!
        … After years of daily work on self-improvement — I found a completely different experience of dying of the body. You could read about this in the essay on the devils.
        At this time, when the body was dying, it was quite good for me! Being now a huge and sophisticated Consciousness, I — from the Bliss of Mergence with the Primordial Oneness — could look towards my material body, which was looking so tiny, and understand that, if God cuts off my connection with it, I will not lose anything, except the possibility of taking more Higher stages of perfecting. I then completely relied on the Will of God — and He again instructed me to continue my discipleship with Him, remaining in the same body.
        … And then He added the thought: “All devils are completely subject to God!”…
        And it turned out that this devil was easily “washed away” by the Flood of the Divine Light-Fire, carrying the intention “Take away!”…
        For me, it became a new life experience.
        Here is, for what, including, God created for me this situation!
        … Whatever is being broadcast now on television for the entire Russian-speaking population of the planet!
        Someone gives the main advice to all viewers: do not take from the cemeteries into your houses any objects! Because with them you will bring in “the dead”!
        Other information of the same level: the hair on the head is the antennas through which we are guided by God, Who is, indeed, above our heads. And, if the hair is cut off, — such man remains without contact with God and lives now according to one’s own will…
        The population of our country is now intellectually “fed” by such information…
        Plus — as if religious rituals “save”…
        Plus — ajna’s “digging” into fantasizing about the number of chakras: 8, 9, 90, even already 110…
        Although — for starters — just one chest chakra anahata would be enough, the other six — let them be just clean…
        … I offer the Path of spiritual perfecting, which has been passed and studied, which really gives worthy results! It has been described in detail in many of our materials. This is a Modern Developed Hesychasm. Its essence, to which the Founders of Christianity, Sufism, Hinduism, Buddhism, and some other smaller religious trends tried to teach their followers, — consists in developing oneself as the spiritual heart.
        There are no other ways to full cognition of God and to fulfill the higher meaning of our lives!
        And remember: life in the body on the Earth is given to each of us by God — for perfecting! In this — His interest! And our interest — too! Without a body, we can live, but we cannot radically improve ourselves!
        We are improving ourselves only here on the Earth! Therefore, it is good reason to cherish every day, every hour of life in the material body!
        And it also becomes clear that the voluntary withdrawal from this life because of a misunderstanding of the meaning of my life — is a very wrong action! It leads to the repetition of all the difficulties that we are facing now — in the next incarnation.
        … I started this essay on the death of the body. And I end with how everyone can most successfully realize the Will of God, fulfilling our higher meaning of life. It must be performed voluntarily, without “urging” from the side of “death”. Although…
       
        If I Were the Boss…
       
        Forest Fires
       
        Every spring, when the snow has melted away and last year’s grass dries, forest fires begin. The grass is set fire by the weak-minded, who are so many…
        They set fire — for the sake of a pleasant smell of smoke…
        Some of them also see other benefit in these criminal acts. For example — “we fertilize the soil with ashes”…
        To one of them, I answered the question: “What do you think: what does chernozem consist of?”
        It suddenly “came to him” that the soil is not made up of ashes, but of rotting during many years remnants of the same grass… Since that time, that man, in our subsequent occasional meetings, behaved politely underlined…
        Should it come to everyone else!
        In fires, not only grass burn away, from which the soil might turn out. But many animals are burned alive! Take at least spiders, in abundance building their spider-webs in this grass — in anticipation of appearance of mosquitoes and midges… And we would have some benefit, if they do not die…
        … In arid summers, the special danger is represented by crown fires — when the crowns of trees light up. With a strong wind, the fire rushes through the forest at a tremendous speed. So much oxygen burns that people who are near, fall in coma… And how much animals and plants suffer and die in this fire!
        The raging fire spreads to populated by people areas, villages are sometimes completely consumed in flurries of fire — along with people who have not managed to escape their homes to a safe location, along with domestic animals, with property accumulated by years of labor on the ground…
        All this should be talked about with schoolchildren — then surely the number of fires would decrease… But to defeat dementia completely — by persuasion and penalty methods — I do not foresee the possibility…
        And if so, then I propose to establish the following rule of forest exploitation: to divide the forests into quarters not by narrow cuttings through which the fire in a strong wind easily tosses, but by wide cuttings — about 50 meters. It would be convenient both for lumbering, and forest berries on such cuttings would appear: cranberries, blueberries, bilberries, raspberries, strawberries, blackberries — depending on the quality of soils. Both humans and animals would get benefit…
       
        Floods
       
        Every spring, floods inundate many villages along the banks of rivers. And sometimes strong and long rains are not only in springtime — and catastrophes of floods happen. People are dying, domestic animals, property. Wooden houses inside become covered with mold…
        I repeat that this happens almost every year in approximately the same places.
        But why not build once forever the protective dams — with the help of detachments of rescuers, soldiers, using civil and military machinery?
        Do not build such dams along the river banks: let the flood meadows be fertilized with river silt! Dams must be built along the boundaries of settlements — taking into account the terrain.
        Of what? From the construction debris, stones, bundles of logs, including those which have sunk during timber floating and raised from the bottom of the rivers. If possible, you can apply also concrete. All this let be covered with earth — gently, so that it would be easy to cross over. Then let plant grass, bushes, and trees. Their roots will strengthen the dams.
       
        Elks
       
        Long time ago, many elks lived in our forests. We met them almost every time, when we visited a forest.
        And now the elks were gone: their bodies were eaten by human-predators.
        But elks are the main food-source of mites, flies, midges, bloodsuckers called among people as “elk flies”.
        The latter were abundant in old years. They showered in swarms from the trees, crawled in hair, climbed under clothes, bit sharply… Sometimes we had to run to escape from those parts of the forest where they were especially numerous.
        And now — they are not at all! Or not every year it is possible to meet one or two. Now we can safely collect mushrooms and berries, merge with the harmony of the forest!
        … Now there are talks in the press about the “fine perspective” of restoring the livestock of elks in the forests. And there are already released deer in forests, which will successfully replace the elks — as food for insects-bloodsuckers. The last will again be many-many!…
        But do we need it?!
       
        Predators
       
        I do not understand people who — like now all the time is shown on Russian television — catch by hands crocodiles to move them to another pond!
        What is the reason for this love for crocodiles? Would it be for all better, if this disgusting animal species disappear even completely from the surface of the Earth?
        And I can say the same about love to lions, tigers, etc.
        All such large predators are dangerous for humans and for many animals.
        Scavenger-animals, eating corpses of other animals, yes, are useful.
        About large predators is said that they kill old and sick individuals — and this is their supposed benefit. But this is not the case: they kill, first of all, cubs.
        Why do some people love and protect large predators?
        Is it because these persons themselves have predatory habits? When they contemplate the images of how, for example, a lion tears with teeth the body of a living victim, do they align with the lion and enjoy together with it the infliction of terrible pain? “Super! — How we are tearing it!”
        Enjoying by someone’s pain…
        But would not it be more appropriate to attune with the tormented victim? Then, perhaps, these predators-people would understand what is pain, would begin to learn compassion?
        Then, probably, wars will become less…
       
        On Traffic Laws for Pedestrians
       
        In Russia, right-hand traffic for transport and pedestrians is the accepted norm.
        But, according to quite reasonable “Rules of the road”, if a pedestrian is forced to move on foot along the road or along a street where there is no pedestrian sidewalk, then the pedestrian should go exactly on the left side in relation to the carriageway — that is, facing the approaching motor vehicle traveling along the right side of the road or street.
        This is written in the publicly available “Rules of the road”, it was read by everyone who was preparing for the exams to obtain a driver’s license, this is over and over again repeated on television in connection with road traffic accidents involving pedestrians.
        But it’s one thing — to read or listen.
        And it is quite another — to understand, remember, accept for execution. But this requires at least a minimally developed intellect!
        And it happens that, for example, on a narrow roadside of a highway with intensive traffic, two streams of pedestrians interfere with each other…
        Those who go on the right side, with occiputs to the rushing cars, we’ll call conditionally “stupid”. And those, who move on the left side, are “reasonable”.
        “The stupids”, it happens, internally boils from malice to “the reasonables”: “What a lack of culture! They do not know how to walk! They walk — not how we all walk!”

* * *
         But this happens the same in the sphere of religious life…
        … Psychologists subdivide all people into, including, leaders — and the guided.
        But leaders are both clever — and stupid. And even — devils in the flesh…
        How does one, who really wants to find for oneself a leader, make a choice?
        I can offer only one advice: compare, what the leader says, with what God teaches us.

* * *
        Someone may be interested in the question: “And how does the author of this essay behave in those narrow roadsides of the highways? Does he hate the ‘stupid’? Does he walk, pushing them aside?”
        No. I do not know how to hate. And I walk, trying to give way to all.
        That is, I try to live without conflicts.
       
        Spiritual Self-Realization — It Is Easy!
       
        Yes, it’s easy, if one knows — how.
        It is necessary to start with mastering sattva — that is, harmony, purity in one’s own worldview, in the way of life, in the state of the soul. For this, we must, among other things, learn how to merge ourselves-souls — with the harmony and purity of the surrounding space in the world of the Creation. Especially effective is to study it — in nature on the early spring mornings.
        From the completeness of sattvicness, that is, from a sufficiently stable paradise state here on the Earth, — there is just one step to direct cognition of the Creator.
        When we have already learned to be in unity with the original harmony of God’s Creation — we will be able to begin mastering the next large stage, which consists in the direct cognition of its Creator.
        For this, one can do, including:
        We will feel the world of sattva — as if it is resting on the palms of my (i.e., of each of the practitioners) love. I will caress and nurture with my love all the kind incarnate and non-incarnate beings!
        And under the world of sattva — there is the Ocean of the Creator.
        Sattva of the Creation is located as if on the surface of the Ocean of the Creator.*
        We explore this Ocean, moving in Him with the help of our own hands of consciousness, consubstantial to the spiritual heart.
        We also dive deep into the Ocean, trying to get into the most subtle of His Light-Fire. Thus we can cognize the extraterrestrial state of the Holy Spirit, Who once was entrusted with the creation of our planet and life on it. His name — according to His European Incarnation — Adler.
        Gradually we learn to be His Light-Fire.
        And then — being Him — we return to our bodies, we try to get rid of all that is not the Light-Fire of the Creator.
        … You can find the details of mastering the above — in our books and films.

* * *
        Let no one think that the author has already mastered all that has been said here.
        I have mastered not all yet, but I know how to finish it. For a day or a month — it is not possible to do it.
        If you manage to get to full Self-Realization prior to me — I’ll be sincerely happy for you!
        I feel myself in the Oneness with the Universal Flow of the Evolution of Consciousness. And I do all my best for Its harmonious current.
*  This is a meditative image related to the study of the multidimensionality of space. Do not try to imagine that, what has been said, applying to the world of matter.

       
        To the Theme of Beauty:
      about Mammary Glands

       
        In the old years, I repeatedly heard the question: why do males have these rudiments of mammary glands with nipples?
        I did not have a clear answer then.
        After years, I became convinced of the existence of God-the-Creator. So — this arrangement of male bodies was not a “misunderstanding”, a “foolish accident”. Hence — it was conceived and planned by Him. But why?
        The answer came to me later — and I will share it with you.
        … The mammary glands in women have not only that purpose to feed babies. But they are an important element of beauty, created by the Creator for spiritual refinement, especially for males. And most women have also the ability to admire its harmonious form, softness, subtle tenderness.
        And even when the youth of the body has already left behind — there is the opportunity to admire the nakedness of such women: their openness, willingness to accept their fate with its age outgoings. This, too, — in itself — is wonderful!
        And to observe the age-related decline of young beauty in others is very significant for those, who live in God-given bodies without understanding that the youth of the body is not eternal, and it is necessary to hurry up to fulfill — while there are fresh forces — most important, for which we have received our earthly bodies.
        … But why exist these rudiments of mammary glands, inherent in males, which may even seem to some as ugly?
        This is to ensure males see their physical imperfection — in comparison with women’s beauty!
        Male bodily beauty — it’s just a pitiful semblance of women beauty!
        … I’m writing this for those males who are proud of their sex — for no reason at all!

* * *
        But I do not propose women uncover the breasts in inadequate for this conditions. Normal people are happy with beauty, they are refining, doing better. But too much exist among us of those embodied infernal creatures who hate beauty, seek to desecrate and torment it…
       
        Dogs — to Paradise, Man — to Hell…
       
        Two nice young dogs run in the forest path towards me. As soon as they saw me — they immediately started to fawn.
        When they ran up — I praised them for their friendliness. I told them kindly:
        “What are your fine tails!”
        … They — in response to kind words and love — have turned into an entire happy wagging!
        I wanted to add even more happiness to them: to pat and hug.
        … But suddenly — the menacing cry of a fat aunt walking behind them, whom I did not notice at the turn of the path:
        “Stop that! Forward march!”
        … The tails immediately had lowered, a brief episode of happiness was rudely concluded…
        The owner — a clot of spite that was hard to be restrained and ready to spill out at any moment — passed by me, not greeting (although it is customary to do it at meetings with strangers in the forest) and without even looking up at me.

* * *
        My readers already, I believe, understood what I wanted to say to them, describing this episode:
        The mistress made herself a devil in the flesh. Its destiny is hell: the “rubbish heap” of the Evolutionary Process…
        But the dogs, if they do not allow her to kill their love, will be the inhabitants of paradise: the layer of multidimensional space that adjoins the Creator. Most likely, they will soon be back on the Earth — in human bodies. And they will intensively develop in themselves the qualities that — in addition to love — will lead them to the Divine Perfection.
        Good luck to you, dear friends!

* * *
        Those, who undertake the upbringing of other people or animals, must understand that the main thing, by which we can help them, is the development of love in them. This quality will lead them to paradise and will indicate the path of further correct evolutionary development.
        But the development of evil qualities ensures hell.
       
        Love
       
        Love is:
        — not a passionate desire,
        — not violence, even in thoughts and emotions,
        — not an appropriation,
        but a humble giving away to the worthy — for the sake of helping them and for the general harmony.
       
        The Formula of the Perfection
       
        Spiritual Perfection consists of the following three main components:
        1. Intellectual ability to understand God’s Intention concerning us and to implement it stage by stage.
        2. The ethical flawlessness offered to us by God, including absolute decency, in particular: a) the refusal to do wrongful harm to any kind beings, and b) the exclusion of egocentrism with the replacement of it by the selfless service to God through help to worthy persons.
        3. And at the meditative branch of development — a stable state of Mergence with God — being the spiritual heart, refined up to the level of the Creator and developed in quantitative terms up to at least a planetary scale. This is realized both: a) in the Calm State of God (His Turiya state), and b) in His active Light-Fiery Manifestation.

* * *
        Using these three points, we can estimate the level of spiritual progress of ourselves and of other people. Details on how to do this, the readers can find, in particular, in the materials given at the end of this collection.
        In particular, when acquainted with them, a reasonable person will easily understand that neither drugs, nor prayers, nor hope for “instant enlightenment”, nor martial arts in themselves, nor excessive sex — will bring to the Perfection.
       
        Conversation with Native American Chieftain Hugh
       
        Hugh is now the incarnate Divine Teacher, the leader of the Native American tribe residing on a reservation in the United States.
        Similarly to, including, incarnated in India Babaji from Haidakhan and Sathya Sai Baba, He demonstrates the ability to communicate easily — intangible and at any distance — with His incarnate disciples, being Himself now embodied.
        … Once we were invited to visit the working site of the now-Divine Disciple of Jesus Christ — Martha, Who once invited into Her house and fed Jesus and His companions.
        Martha greeted us with the deep joyous and blissful silence inside Her Mahadouble.
        From this silence, Hugh showed Himself.
        He reminded us how, together with Surya, He once gave us one of the most important meditations, about which He will mention later.
        And now, He asks to convey to incarnate people His Appeal:
        “The tradition of mastering the inner silence is not an invention of Christianity. This tradition already existed much earlier. One of the examples you know is the Chinese Tao-Te-Ching. Pythagoras also taught this stage of spiritual growth. This was, too, one of the most important training points for the students of the ancient Atlanteans, as well as in the spiritual schools in the territory of ancient Russia. And this was the basis of the Native American spiritual culture in North America.
        “Glad, all We are glad — that our Native American spiritual tradition was close to you! I mean that true religiosity is most successfully realized precisely in pristine natural purity — so close to its Creator!
        “It is in it — so dear for you silence is most successfully cognized. It is within it the worlds of the Holy Spirits and the Creator become apparent!
        “I will pay attention to the fact that the silence must be mastered in both tonal and nagual.* Between the tonal and the nagual, there is an inclined plane that separates them; Surya once compared for you this plane with a very large deckchair.
        “This silence (hesychia) is achieved only by working with the spiritual heart. Both the tonal and the nagual let be covered by the spiritual heart developed to a huge size; the spiritual heart has to possess immaterial hands emanating from it and consubstantial to it.
        “Only with this ‘starting position’ of being a developed spiritual heart, inside which is the silence, — one can move deeper into the multidimensional Absolute, including cognition the Creator.
        “Everyone can trace in oneself that, which prevents the attainment of this silence. It can be the aspiration to fame, to material enrichment, self-admiration and other egocentric tendencies, including such vile soul qualities as aggression, violence, the desire to deceive and humiliate others, to profit from robbery.
        “And there are those qualities that take away one’s personal power. Then — the spiritual heart, which should be developed by everyone in breadth and depth, is even more wrinkled… These are qualities such as fear, anxiety, ‘compassion’ for oneself. Everyone must keep track of the slightest signs of these qualities of the soul and immediately suppress them.
        “When you understand the whole Path quite clearly, then there are grounds to feel yourself in the state of anticipation of the Victory!”

*  The tonal is the material “layer” of the multidimensional Absolute. The nagual is a collection of all non-material “layers”.
    This meditation, like almost every other, should be carried out with open bodily eyes. Other-wise, the reality of meditative work is replaced by useless thought-images within the head chakra ajna.


       
        A Little Bit about the Passed Path
       
        Once, now a long time ago, I made the right decision for myself: I should not pray to God for “salvation”, but actively transform myself in accordance with His Teachings.
        God “had taken” this decision — and became for me the very real Main Teacher. In particular, seeing my sincerity, He gradually began to reveal His Essence to me. In the end, it allowed me — with His Blessings — to present the knowledge, received from Him, to people inhabiting the Earth.
        It was the knowledge, first of all, about His structure, Evolution, about the role of us — people and all beings inhabiting the world of matter — in His Life. Also — on the methodology of people’s spiritual development; including intellectual, ethical and meditative aspects of development.
        All this has been told in many of our books, films, and other materials by the scientist-biologist and colleagues — in an accessible for readers form. It was the description of both what needs to be understood by the words God, Trinity, and why the Creator needed to create His Creation, and the principles of the Evolution of the Universal Consciousness, and the differences between people, and how a person can grow up in foreseeable time from the state of “ordinary man” — to the Divinity.
        The main attention should be paid to the ethical component of development on the spiritual Path: God needs in us, above all, the ethical purity; otherwise He puts on the way of seekers for the cognition of Himself — insurmountable obstacles.
        Such my study under God lasted for decades. (Now my age in this body has already exceeded 70). In particular, God tested me in loyalty to Him — through allowing hostility towards me from primitives who had found for themselves comfortable conditions for satisfying their criminal vicious passions in the state structure. There were both slander and threats of reprisal, and attempts at murder, and the murder, and much more, about which it would be possible to publish a whole book. But I do not intend to do this: both because I do not want to upset the reasonable and decent members of that organization, and I have other tasks, another mission.
        One of the erroneous outcomes of such a test might be for me the opportunity to get involved in the fight against that abomination — and get bogged down in the battle against them, having lost the Main Goal of my life — God.
        God — through the Teachings of Jesus Christ — advised us not to take revenge, not to enter into conflicts, but to devote wholly our lives to the practical aspiration to the Perfection and helping others on this Path: “Seek the Kingdom of God, and everything (the rest) will be added to you” (Luke 12:31).
        And I did not get involved in confrontation — but directed all my energies to further cognition of our Creator and to serve Him through spiritual help to other people.
        Now this knowledge has been translated by enthusiasts into many languages. And it’s nice to realize that we have managed to help very-very many people to avoid such fatal mistakes as drug addiction, suicide, crime, “stumbling” in sectarian stupidity and psychopathology, motion to hell because of elementary spiritual ignorance…
        On the contrary, so many people, when they study our works, successfully advance towards the spiritual Perfection!

* * *
        How can I help you now, my readers, precisely those of you who are not familiar with our other books, but only with this collection?
        On the intellectual and ethical components of development — I advise you to read in detail in our books, as well as watch and listen to the films.
        But I will tell you more about the esoteric component of development.
        How much people fantasize about it?!
        Many people are sure that on the spiritual Path, on which Jesus offered us to become Perfect, as God is Perfect (Matt 5:48), it is enough only to “put candles” in the temples and report to pastors their committed sins — so that these sins are “absolved”…
        But God taught through Jesus: “The Kingdom of God is preached, and everyone by (personal) efforts enters It” (Luke 16:16)…
        Others, in order to “go to paradise”, are trying to kill as many “infidels” as possible, although God offers us to learn not to kill, not to hate, but to forgive, love, help…
        God is disgusted with rudeness, cruelty in people! Hell becomes the future of just such!
        “God is Love” (1 John 4:8, 4:16). That is why those who develop in themselves not love, but opposite qualities, including, above all, gross emotional states, — turn out to be “in the darkness of outside” (Matt 8:12), that is, in hell.
        Some devote their “spiritual efforts” to the “contriving” of ever new “chakras”, fantastic techniques of “lifting Kundalini”, “cleaning the energy of the body” by jumping over campfires, waiting for an “instant enlightenment” due to practice of “permissiveness” in emotions and behavior…
        … But what does it mean “to become Perfect like God”?
        It means:
        — to cleanse yourself, first of all, from all ethical shortcomings,
        — to understand the Essence of God, to find one’s own place in the Evolution of the Universal Consciousness,
        — to strive to become as big as possible: because He is the universal in size Consciousness,
        — to become extremely refined soul-consciousnesses: because He — in the Aspect of the Creator — is just like that.
        The subtlety of consciousness leads a person to paradise and then to the Abode of the Creator. But accustoming oneself to emotional rudeness programs into hell. And no prayer can change this situation: its changing through prayer is not foreseen by God.
        Life on the Earth is given to man, for him or her, having attained the Perfection, to merge into the Creator and become the Holy Spirit. In other words — to become the Oneness with the United We, Who, in the whole endless history of the Existence of God, becoming Perfect, have merged into the Creator.
        But it is only possible to merge — in the emotions of tender mutual love. For this, it is necessary, in particular, to be already able — being apt to learn this during life in the body — to love emotionally, to fall in love, to weave in one with hands of love, to unite with souls consisting of developed spiritual hearts.
        And there is an opportunity to learn this, only by loving the worthy incarnate ones, embracing with them, merging souls.
        Therefore, it must be recognized as the main direction of spiritual perfecting — the work with the spiritual heart, which is adequate for both adults and children.
        “God is Love!” — and in order to get close to Him, we, too, need to become more and more perfect love!
        And this can be achieved only through the development of oneself as the spiritual heart: “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God!” (Matt 5:8).
        It is in the depths of the developed spiritual heart — man finds the Creator: “The Kingdom of God is within you!” (Luke 17:21).
        This was and is taught by the Messenger of the Creator — Jesus. Also now, all the Holy Spirits teach this. But people massively ignore this Teachings of God, substituting true spiritual efforts — by pseudo-religious surrogates…
      
        On Faith
        (selection of citations from “Legend of Rada and

     Alexey”: Conversation with the Elder Nicholas)
       
        Faith is a great power! This power grows out from the mind — into the soul.
        Who has strong faith — it’s easy for such man to live! It is — as a small leaf on a tree branch feels the same as the whole tree!
        Faith is the power that holds this leaf together with the twig and the tree itself. And if faith is weak, then this man is like a leaf which was separated from a branch and is driven by wind: to one disastrous place it will be brought, then to another…
        Our monastic happiness is simple: we must always live by the soul — with the Lord! The soul joins with God — through deep faith and pure love!
        And God’s Love is the wonderful Power that feeds the soul and as if knits with the Creator!
        The human body is like a leaf on that Tree of God.
        Time is given to this little leaf-body to blossom, turn green, turn yellow, and perish… And the soul — remains inseparable from God, if it has become filled with love for the Lord during its life, if it has grown fast to God! And if the soul has not grown fast to the Lord — then it, as well as the body, is perishable like a fallen leaf may perish…
        It needs to abase pride in oneself, to eradicate vices, not to sin due to weakness of will, not to give way to one’s own wrong desires, yet to learn the heart love, to apprehend the Will of God!
        And it befits to live so — that everything is only for God! And the rest — He will rule!
        Joyful is such a life with God, when by His Will you live!
        Joy happens when God is in your spiritual heart! It’s already more than just faith…
        When God’s Love overfills the soul, then you are not separated from God: He is with you and you are with Him! And your life — belongs to Him completely!
        Let everything be with us — according to His Will! And nothing is sad at that time, everything is joyful, if you understand that everything comes from Him! And it is inappropriate for us to resist His Will!
        You — feel by the heart! You know already — how! So — you will always feel the Truth of God with your heart even when your understanding cannot be able to!
        Faith and love for God allow one to not fear death of the body. And — to pass worthily all tests falling out in life. And to do the good that is in your powers, but that, which you are not able to change, — to not have sorrow.
        Life is of great value! This is the truth!
        And often a worldly man thinks that nothing is beyond the life of the body… But a spiritual person knows the reason to give bodily life for the sake of saving the soul. And many people did it!
        There is a special state of the human soul, in which faith is so strong and deep, in which faith and love have so transformed the soul — that one does not fear for oneself anymore.
        To transcend the conventional dogmas and experience the Living God — that’s the most important in the faith indestructible! It is only possible to feel — in the heart spiritual! Then the soul will not doubt that God exists and that God is Love, as Jesus taught!
        And then you can stop ‘being afraid for yourself’: fretting for the life of your body.
        You can stop being afraid for what people will think and talk about you… — be it fame, shame, condemnation of the crowd… Those, in whom pride is strong, are afraid of shame and reproach! Words of praise — are pleasant to our pride! And reproaches — cause it pain…
        All this is feared for one who has one’s own main thoughts and concerns — about oneself! But the soul, strengthened by faith and love for God, is no longer afraid of it!
        There is a belief with which a person becomes so full-blown to God, so much accepts to oneself God’s Will that he or she is not concerned anymore for oneself!
        Faith that results from fear — makes man a mindless slave, blind instrument of those who instill this fear!
        But faith that grows out of love for God — brings a person closer to the Lord!
        Faith is easily broken if there is no love for God and no depth of understanding!
        And the Essence of indestructible faith — this is God Himself! With such faith — nothing is scary!
       
        Comments of Vladimir Antonov:
       
        1. In order to cultivate such a faith, one must have the true knowledge of God and a sufficient experience of direct communication with Him.
        But how many “believers” exist, who do not even have an understanding about which way to see, looking for God!...
         2. Ethical purity is the first and main sign of someone who is really capable of approaching the Creator, having the right faith.
        But how often do we meet those, who proclaim themselves as spiritual teachers, but are able to steal, deceive, have a vicious self-conceit, developed up to parody, become the creatures of hell by the rudeness of themselves-souls...
