Bibliography

Where Should We Seek God?

"Inhabitation" of any new "islet of Creation" begins with the Spirits Who achieved the state of the Holy Spirit (Brahman) in the course of Their evolution on other "islets". They become "Constructors" and "Supervisors" of the evolution of life on the newly created planets. Later on They are joined by Those Who attain these evolutionary heights by incarnating on that particular "islet".

The whole space inside and around our planet is filled with huge Consciousnesses merged in one or manifesting Themselves individually, Who are collectively called The Holy Spirit.

In other words, as it must already be clear, The Holy Spirit is not at all a "radiation" of God-the-Father or of God-the-Son. No! The Holy Spirit is Living Consciousness — subtle and loving, Who is teaching us and is constantly present inside and outside our bodies. He is extremely glad every time we lovingly direct our attention towards Him, willing to accept His help in order to get closer to Him — to His state.

The same can be said about the Consciousness of the Creator. Only He is even deeper in the multidimensional space and incomparably larger — He is boundless. The Consciousness of the Creator, just like the Consciousness of the Holy Spirit, exists deep inside under every cell of our bodies. The distance between us and Him is not greater than thickness of a sheet of thin paper, as Jesus Christ perfectly formulated it [14,28].

And one should not fly anywhere or travel too far in search of God: He is right here and right now — inside us. Only in another eon. And the only thing that separates us from Him is our coarseness, which is a consequence of our religious ignorance and lack of love.

We have to find God inside, in the depth of our own spiritual hearts. This well-known postulate is not just a nice metaphor, but a quite concrete instruction on where we should direct our efforts. And the primary reason for the almost total spiritual degradation of tremendous masses of people that we currently observe is that they do not have true spiritual knowledge. And not only criminal politicians are to blame for that, but also leaders of false mass religious organizations who teach their "flock" to hate, to kill, to drink hard, to worship not God, but fictitious "gods", to endlessly perform allegedly "saving" bodily movements and to repeat "prayers" that often program people to hell — instead of cultivating Love and refinement of souls.
