I am not going to continue describing other psychotypes because we discussed this subject in detail in the book Ecopsychology. Let me just note that there is a psychotype opposite to the one we described above — the anahatic psychotype. People of this psychotype are treasures in human society! They are the most promising souls from the evolutionary standpoint!
And even though they may suffer from attacks of aggressive primitives, they are those who already have entered on the spiritual Path (they may just stand on this Path, but it is better to walk it!).
… God is Love; this truth was taught by Jesus Christ and by all other Divine Teachers.
One can become closer to God (what many believers dream about) only through becoming gradually similar to Him. This similarity should be obtained, first and foremost, in the aspect of love.
The knowledge about chakras explains to us how we can develop in ourselves this main quality of God. The point is that the emotions of tender love, care, admiration and respect for wisdom, as well as love-aspiration for the Creator — all these emotional states are born and maintained in a special emotiogenic structure of the organism — the chakra anahata. It is in this chakra where the special part of the consciousness, called the spiritual heart, is formed and continues its growth.
Only by developing oneself as a spiritual heart, can one gain true spiritual power and come closer to the direct personal cognition of the Creator and Mergence with Him.
By the way, this is the answer to the question raised by a number of people: is it good to have a developed anahata but suffer attacks of malicious primitive people? Isn’t it better to develop coarse power in oneself with the help of the methods of black magic or through “gladiatorial” kinds of sport, where the coarsest and most aggressive people usually achieve success?
I can answer that everyone has a right, given to us by God, to make the choice. However, one should reflect first on the consequences of this choice, since the destiny of those who preserve or even develop in themselves such coarseness is hell!
On the contrary, the prospect of those who develop themselves as spiritual hearts, as love, is paradise or even higher abodes!
The point is that after the death of the body, we abide in those states of the consciousness to which we accustomed ourselves during the life in the body.
Those who have accustomed themselves to various manifestations of malice — will continue to live in these emotional states among other souls similar to them. This is what hell is. (By the way, isn’t it appropriate to revise our attitude to those kinds of sports where such qualities are encouraged and developed intentionally? I am sure that sport must exalt Beauty rather than confrontation, aggressiveness, violence, and cruelty!)
Those accustomed to living in the states of tender and caring love will also continue to live in these states among other people similar to them. This is what paradise is.
One attains paradise or hell neither due to belonging to a certain religious organization nor due to performing certain deeds but as a result of correct or incorrect evolutionary advancement of the soul: to the Creator — or away from Him.
Any reasonable person understands this easily…

So, what should we do if we value the principle of Love and believe in the existence of God but do not want to be weak?
The answer to this question has to be clear to you now: we should strive to become closer and closer to the Creator, growing and developing ourselves more and more as spiritual hearts. It is in this way that we acquire true spiritual power and invulnerability in relations with incarnate and non-incarnate beings of hell.
Yes, an incarnate soul possesses an ability to transform itself not only qualitatively, eliminating some qualities and developing others, but also quantitatively, growing as a spiritual heart. Each one of us has the possibility to grow as a spiritual heart — first inside the chest of one’s own material body, then outside it — up to sizes of several meters, then — kilometers, then — thousands of kilometers… And after having grown to such a size and having cognized many other useful things, the soul can merge with the Creator, enriching Him in this way.
This constitutes the meaning of our lives: to develop ourselves to the extent when we become worthy of approaching the Abode of the Creator in the multidimensional universe — and of merging with Him. Yet He receives in Himself only those who have become Love as He is. There are no other possibilities of cognition of Him.
And what will happen to us if we begin to transform ourselves in this way? What changes will occur in us quite soon?
The first and the most important thing is that we will become capable of feeling, experiencing the state of love. And it will not just be a short period of emotional uplift but a stable state of benevolence and calm. The unpleasant emotions of dislike, hatred, irritation, fear, envy, impatience will go away. The illnesses caused by these or other dominant negative emotions will be cured too. The energy field of the organism will change as well: it will be pleasant for other people to communicate with us; we will improve our relations with those people who were not our friends and will find new sincere friends. Possessing true spiritual experience, we will have knowledge to share with others. In this way we will find companions in our spiritual quest.
And then quite soon we will have new Friends — Holy Spirits, Representatives of the Creator, Who will be our Spiritual Guides and Teachers.
Thus God — as living Reality and not as a mere symbol or an object of unstable faith — enters our everyday life and becomes Real Father-Mother, Friend, and Beloved Teacher.
