Man is not his body. Man is a consciousness (soul) incarnated into a material body for a certain period of time. The embodiment is important, because growth of an individual consciousness is possible only in the embodied state, since it is the material body that is the “factory” of transformation of the energy of ordinary food into the energy of consciousness.
The organism an embodied man (but not the body) is multidimensional. (I should note that the “seven bodies” scheme, developed by occultists, is methodologically wrong. It would be more correct to consider a potential presence of man in all main layers of the multidimensional Absolute; it is this potential that one should realize. This concept, by the way, is described in the Bible as likeness between man and God — God in the aspect of multidimensional Absolute (more details see in [6,7]).
It may become easier to understand the above said if you look at the scheme of the structure of the Absolute presented in the beginning of this book. (For the first time it was published in books [5,6]). This scheme is not so easy to understand, since it is impossible to fully represent the multidimensionality of space in a graphical form. So, in order to understand it, one should keep in mind that each layer of multidimensionality shown on the scheme lower in reality is located deeper on the multidimensional scale. And each deeper layer is subtler, compared to the previous one. The Abode of the Creator is located in the deepest, that is, the most subtle, energy layer of the multidimensional structure of the Absolute. Thus, we should seek Him there. In terms of methodological direction, this work should consist in refinement of one’s consciousness, which starts with mastering regulations of one's emotional sphere.
But a really serious esoteric work consists in learning to shift the concentration of consciousness between all layers of this scheme (not on the picture of course, and not in one’s imagination, but in the real multidimensional space), similar to the way one can move the concentration of consciousness inside one’s own body.
Another difficulty is that the human multidimensional organism is divided into two parts by the vertical plane (“Mirror”) that can always be found behind the anahata chakra, which is located in the chest (i.e., behind the back, if the body is in the vertical position). Behind the “Mirror”, there are undifferentiated components of the Absolute, while in front of it — differentiated ones: energetic constituents condensed to the material state, individual paradisiacal souls, individual Manifestations of the Holy Spirit that come out from the Abode of the Creator.
Each of the sectors on the scheme represents an entrance into the corresponding layer (eon, loka) of the multidimensionality. Moving between the “storeys” of this multidimensional “building”, as if along the “stairway” that connects the “storeys”, we can enter the “hall” of each “floor” and realize its immensity.
This is the potential of every man and this is the structure of the Absolute. It consists of these layers; and the main one of them is God-the-Father (Heavenly Father, the Creator, Svarog, Allah, Adibuddha, Ishvara, Primordial Consciousness — these and other words are used to name Him in different languages).
But hell and its inhabitants are not a part of It. Hell is “the outer darkness” that Jesus spoke about. Hell is a “dumpsite”, where the waste of the evolutionary process goes to. Those who used to live in rude emotional states during the embodiment, get into hell. After the death of their bodies they continue to suffer among other beings like them — with all implied consequences.
Inhabitants of hell are called demons or devils; the latter are more powerful energetically (see  for more details). All they are infinitesimally small, compared to the boundless Creator. Their “leader” — Satan — as an actual being does not exist in reality, except in literary allegories and moralizing tales. But hell inhabitants can struggle for souls of people by provoking them to thoughts, emotions, and deeds that lead them to the opposite direction from the Creator. This struggle is necessary: by using his free will (i.e. the freedom of choice in the ethically important situations) man demonstrates to God whether he is worthy to approach the Abode or not. The whole process of such training of ours is conducted by the Holy Spirit; He leaves no one without His help and attention, and nothing happens without His knowing and controlling it.
