…We are living in such a time that when you start
talking to people about God they have very similar reactions: they try to
step aside; some people even have negative feelings.
Perhaps, people think that I will start to preach, so they try to go away.
This talk (article) is not a sermon; it is just contemplation about God.
I will try to reveal a small aspect of this global concept.
We are living in a dual world, and so, every phenomenon has its opposite
side: light and dark, moral and immoral. There is also a concept opposite
to God. Intuitively we all feel that the main thing in our life is our
relationship with God, and so, we are afraid to make a mistake. Maybe this
is the reason why people are afraid to listen and to speak about God. This
is because the concept of God has very many distortions.
So, how do we understand the word “God”? Many people think that God is a
being that lives in a temple, a church, a mosque or a pagoda. They suppose
that all connected with God are mainly related to the matters of religions
that exist now on the Earth like Christianity, Buddhism, Islam, and other
religions, and so they think that, perhaps, God lives somewhere there.
We must notice that all the people who live on planet Earth have
different levels of consciousness. In fact, the word “God” will have a
different meaning for every person. Each of us will have our own
understanding of God and our own idea of this great concept.
Contemporary science in its advanced areas, including quantum physics,
tells us that there is a universal Law that controls everything in this
Universe and that all things are interconnected. This means that at some
level all of us are connected with each other and the whole Universe.
Each level of consciousness has its own understanding of God. There is a
level at which people need some kind of guardianship, so it is good for
such a person to believe in God within the limits of the religion to which
his family or kin belong. But along with the development of man, the idea
of God becomes wider than any religious dogma or concept. An individual
understands that God lives just a few centimeters under his palm placed on
his heart area. At the next level of understanding a person believes that
he is just a small cell of a huge organism consisting of the manifested
Universe and the unrevealed Universe, and that this whole Universe is the
“body” of God. Each of us is just a tiny part of God. This concept of God
has already been proven by contemporary science.
We know that throughout the history of humanity wise men always came to
the world to give their understanding of God. Then new religions appeared
based on their teachings. These wise men also gave laws and regulations to
the world. We can see that these laws and regulations were not accidental.
As we can see according to the religions, these laws represent the same
idea of a moral Law. It talks about the devotion to God, respect toward
your parents, it also teaches not to kill and not to steal. It tells us
about chastity and a moral way of living in all the spheres of life. Thus,
we can see the general direction that humanity had to follow according to
many wise men that lived thousands of years ago.
But then the Law of karma and the Law of reincarnation were taken away
from many religions. And this is a dual world, there is a constant
opposition of two forces: good and evil. So thanks to the evil forces,
people forgot the Law of karma in many religions. What for? – If we do not
understand that every action in this world leads to its result within this
or the next life or lives, then what? – Then anything is acceptable: kill,
steal, lie, and there will be no recompense for this. Why was it so
necessary to take away the Law of reincarnation? If we do not understand
that this is not the only life that we have and we will live some other
lives, what is the point in doing good things and treating nature
carefully? Just take everything from life to get pleasure.
The main problems of society are caused by the fact that we stopped
noticing God, so we have all the problems we are facing now.
We have organized a movement that in Russian is called “Za
nravstvennost”, or “The Morality Movement.” What is the meaning of the
word “nravstvennost”? (In English it is “morality.”) It is a purely
Russian word that consists of four parts:
ÍÐÀÂ ÑÒÂ ÅÍÍ ÎÑÒÜ (Morality)
The first part of the word «ÍÐÀÂ» (NRAV) -
means “manner”, “character” or “human nature,” that is the totality of
your soul’s virtues.
The second part of the word «ÑÒÂ» (STW) -
can read “trunk” (like a tree trunk).
The third part of the word «ÅÍí» oder «ÅÍ»
(ENN) – is the name of God. Some people that are living in the territory
of Russia have this name of God in their legends and myths. According to
those legends God created everything, the Earth and the Universe.
The last part of the word «ÎÑÒÜ» (OST‘) -
means “base” or “spine”.
Therefore, the whole Russian term “nravstvennost” means the fundamentals
of a human and the connection of human nature with God. In other words, it
means God within a human or Divinity within a human. So, the Russian
meaning of this term includes the meaning of connection with God.
When we started to translate the name of the movement into other
languages, we faced big difficulties. There is an English word «moral»,
but in fact, it comes from a Latin word «moralitas», and this term has
spread. However, it means just a set of norms and rules; it does not speak
about the connection with the world of God. In German we found a perfect
word «Sittlichkeit» which has the same meaning as our Russian term.
However, native Germans do not understand the true meaning of this word.
Moreover, this word frightened them, as it also has a negative meaning of
limitation of freedom. Only one person mentioned that this word can mean
the purity of thoughts. Other people failed to explain the true meaning of
this word. That is why we used the word «moraliti», «moral», in German.
Although this term does not contain the meaning of connection with God, it
is understandable for people.
Actually, morality and ethics are absolutely meaningless if they do not
mean connection with God. We suffer from all the problems of modern
society because we lost this connection with the Divinity.
Let’s look at the result of living without God illustrated in several
spheres of human life. Let us look at the sphere of education and child
upbringing, as we devote our second congress to children.
Long ago, thousands of years ago, there was a civilization of the Golden
Age that was described in the Indian book called “The Upanishads”. It says
that children younger than 7-8 year-olds were raised within a family to
get the fundamentals of a family life and traditions. Then a child was
sent to a monastery (cloister) to get education. Parents did not have any
access to the child until he was 25 years old. This means that people who
were saints, monks, and masters gave the child knowledge. The knowledge
concerned morality, obedience to the moral law, control of the sexual
energy, and the ability to raise this energy to the higher chakras. So, 17
years of a person’s life since childhood were dedicated to this. And, the
basis of this education was morality.
Then at the age of 25, the person was allowed to marry. Both young men
and women were virgin until this age. Then there was a very crucial moment
of life, the conception of a spiritual son. It was a ritual when a man and
a woman had a chance and time during which they dedicated all their
virtues to the conception of a child. And all the accrued potential of
those 17 years of their spiritual life was directed at once to the semen,
for their coming firstborn. Just imagine the huge reserves of health,
strength and spiritual endurance that a child possessed! That approach to
raising children was extremely different in comparison with the one we
Now there is a debate going on about the appropriate age at which it is
better to give a child an understanding of sexual behavior. In Latvia,
they say it is necessary to start teaching about it in a kindergarten, at
that early age. But we understand that they will not teach children
morality. What will happen then? In fact, this will be the corruption of
Conception of a child is the basis. Remember how people considered this
during the Golden Age? Now the idea that is introduced and developed in
society is the age at which people can start having sex, and that the sex
of your partner is not really important.
It is possible to kill people in a war, it is possible
to kill them with the help of GMOs, but the easiest thing is to prevent
them from reproducing. In 25 years we can have a desert in any country as
there will be no people.
Look at the diagram of degradation. If the conception
was unconscious, the child will lack a huge amount of health and
Then, the period of pregnancy is very important. The food that a
mother-to-be eats, her spiritual practices during the pregnancy, whether
she talks to her child, her mood and state - the future of a child depends
on all these things.
The next point is upbringing. In our opinion, good upbringing is
provided in the family. But then a child starts attending a kindergarten,
a school and then getting information in the Internet. How can we be sure
that the people who teach our children are reliable and can provide good
education? The fact that they got a diploma, or bought it, gives no
guarantee of their spiritual level. What things do they teach children? Is
it possible that the things they teach will outweigh our attempts to save
the children from the negativity promoted in society?
Let’s look at the way of living: junk food, television, wrong patterns,
alcohol, drugs, living in the conditions of cities…What is the outcome?
Degradation and extinction. Each successive generation becomes sick and is
weaker than the previous generation. And in some cases you do not have to
read books to learn about it, just look at the history of your family.
Which diagram is positive? The one that leads to prosperity and
wellbeing. It includes conscious conception, careful and conscious
pregnancy, right nurturing and upbringing, good education and a healthy
way of living. As a result, we have prosperity and wellbeing. But our
society does not deal with this, because it is turned away from God, and
the goals of society are completely opposite.
Let's look at another example: the mass media. Our mass
media has not provided us with reliable information for quite a long time.
Any article or any video news is paid for, and it is presented to us as it
is paid. No one even thinks that it does not correspond to the Divine
standard, or that the lies and slander pouring on us from the mass media
create big karma. Nobody really thinks about it, because people are making
money, just from the news. That is the way the mass media, being paid,
spreads fear in people and sets entire nations and people against each
One of the basic Teachings given by the Masters of Wisdom is a Teaching
about the changing of consciousness. What enters our consciousness,
settles on the physical plane sooner or later. If our consciousness is
constantly imbued with some negativity against a nation, national
communities, religion or something else, then sooner or later, when a
critical percentage of the population consuming that negative information
is exceeded, it settles on the physical plane in the form of war, hatred
and actually leads to murders.
I am not going to give examples from modern history, but we use the
example of Tsarist Russia of 1917, when the image of the tsar-bloodsucker
had been seen for several decades, and in 1917 people joyfully overthrew
the Tsar and then killed him the following year.
How did it happen? First, an improper image was seeded in peoples’
consciousness. Then those people were ready to kill other people for their
particular class affiliation. How did it all end? 10 million completely
innocent people were killed during the Civil War. 10 million! In one year,
5 times more people were killed than the entire population of Latvia! Of
these 10 million, only 800,000 were so-called the White Guardists and the
Red Guardists. The rest - more than 9 million - were ordinary people:
ordinary peasants, ordinary landowners and workers. Here is how it works.
Those who know the Law of karma, they understand that the action will be
followed by a consequence. One murder begets other murders. This was
followed by a wave of repression and dispossession, which took the lives
of a few millions of people. And then there was the Second World War,
which took even more lives - 20 million!
Thus, one murder begets other murders. This is the result of the work of
the mass media, or rather their detachment from God.
Let's look at the following aspect of our life: politics. Are
there people who are engaged in politics? And why there are no people who
are engaged in politics? Because we are talking about morality, right!
Have you ever thought that the people who run the states, on the
conscience of which millions of human lives rely, are not interested in
morality? What is our society coming to?
Another aspect of our lives is food. All of us buy products mostly in a
store. What motivates the people who make these products, who store and
package them? Profit! Not caring for our good health, but profit!
Accordingly, those products that are on the store shelves are “enriched”
with GMO, flavor enhancers, sweeteners, baking powder, and carcinogens
that have the taste, color and aroma similar to natural. When we eat all
this, we become what we eat. What health can we have if we eat something
that is not really food, but is called by names as before, for example,
cheese, milk, candy, cookies. But this is not cheese, milk, candy and
cookies, it is just poison! Thus our mind is weakening without receiving
natural food, and we cease to distinguish and to be guided in life, taking
the illusion that we see on TV for reality. We are losing our distinction,
and eventually we are losing our soul.
Fundamentally, there are only two ideologies in the world we live in.
One ideology – is the ideology of a consumerist society, which reigns in
the world today. And the second ideology – is the Divine ideology. There
is no party, no politician, no country in the world that would stand up
for the Divine View and the Divine Law. No country, no party in the world!
We know that the world that has withdrawn itself from God is doomed to
death. It is like a cancer that affects humans. If the tumor is not
removed, it will take away all the reserves of the organism, and the
organism will die. It is the same for our consumerist society which lives
only in order to get something, and get different kinds of pleasure and
enjoyment from life. Our parasitic society is like a cancer. Everything in
our society is done to ensure that people stop thinking about God and that
the very concept of “God” is forgotten and acquires a negative
connotation, like the word “Sittlichkeit” in German. We have said that
this word means “morality.” Modern Germans perceive this good word almost
as a curse, as something that attempts to limit their freedom.
And now, when we start talking about God, in many circles of society it
is also perceived as something negative. In a few years the younger
generation will perceive the word “God” as something that limits their
freedom. If we are not going to do anything in order to return God in our
lives, we may not have much time left for living...
In fact, our society is deprived of any freedom of choice. We
obediently go wherever we are driven by the mass media and those who pay
for it. We do not have any freedom. We are doomed if we do not return God
into our lives.
Absolutely everything is aimed only at the fact that we may not think
about God, about the soul, about mercy, compassion, morality, honor,
dignity. When I was younger, our country produced very good postcards for
“Happy Birthday.” Look, a bunny gives a bear birthday flowers and fruits.
And here a dog is talking nicely with a boy. There were many examples of
such postcards. I was born in the middle of the last century, and these
are the postcards from my childhood.
What images are replicated to our children now? Is this
different? Yes, this is quite different.
Let's compare the postcards for “Happy New Year.” This
is the card from my childhood.
What do we see now? Do you like it?
When you go into the internet to look for a birthday
card or a Happy New Year card, you discover that 90% of them are cards
with such ugly images. And I did not choose the worst and take the first
Look at the kind of fashion that surrounds us. The best fashion – there
is a feeling that people are dressed from the garbage. And people
seriously buy these things for big money and wear them.
If a frog is placed in boiling water, it will jump out. But if the frog
is heated slowly in the water, in the end, after some time it will be
boiled. The same thing is happening to us. Our life is changing the
guidelines towards immorality very slowly, millimeter by millimeter each
year. This happens for decades or even centuries, and we do not even
notice it. A few years will pass and we will be boiled like this frog.
The ancients urged to be very careful about the changing of the rhythm
of music and to the style of music itself. Why did they do that? Music has
a great impact on the human body. If we listen to the wrong kind of music
every day, we will be changed, and this will affect our state and
everything that surrounds us. What kind of music do people listen to now?
Can this be called music?
People listen to this music from morning to evening every day. Maybe
they have no soul. May be they are “boiled” like that frog. 90% of what
surrounds us in our lives does not correspond to the Divine patterns. All
of these patterns, which we constantly absorb in the form of advertising,
in the form of music and postcards, in the form of movies and TV programs,
all of this gradually changes us and we forget about God. And, there is no
politician who will remind us of God.
Exactly the same way as there are two ideologies - the consumerist
society and the Divine ideology, in the same way there are two types of
people in our society: some people who believe in God, and others who do
not believe in God.
Those people who do not believe in God think that they live once. The
Law of karma, the Law of reincarnation, and the Moral Law does not exist
for them. They are allowed to do whatever they want, they need to take
everything possible from this life - all the pleasures, all the delights
of this life - and it does not matter how these pleasures can be obtained:
with the help of theft, lies, slander or other means. The society ceased
to control all areas of human activity: advertising, music, art, books,
movies, education, health, food production. If we take any area of human
activity – no one controls it. People do not understand what is happening
and how it affects the death of the human soul.
The word “morality” is inextricably linked with the best human
qualities: love, mercy, compassion, virtue.
Everything in this world is always determined by the best
representatives of human society. And I really hope that each of us will
do everything in his power within the remaining short time to let this
