This question implies a serious philosophical answer about the most important things in our existence: what is the essence of the Universe, what is the meaning of our lives on the Earth and what is the best way to fulfill this meaning?
The most laconic answer is the following:
There is an ongoing Evolution in the Universal Organism of the Absolute. And every one of us should "blend" with this process most harmoniously.
For this purpose we need:
-- To become sufficiently large, mobile, and strong consciousnesses (souls) -- so as to gain the ability to move from one spatial dimension to another along the entire multidimensional scale, to cognize personally this multidimensional structure of the Absolute -- from the boundary with hell up to the Abode of the Creator.
-- To learn to reside firmly in the highest spatial dimension: in the Abode of the Creator -- in Mergence with Him.
-- To habituate ourselves to the state of Mergence, Coessentiality with the Creator, and then to develop the ability to be one with the entire Absolute.
From these highest states one can participate in the Evolutionary Process most successfully, on the Highest Level of competence; in particular, one can help incarnated people in their spiritual development.
After disincarnation, such Perfect Individualities become Holy Spirits. And if They incarnate again by Their Will among people -- They become Divine Messiahs, Avatars.
However even those who have not achieved yet the highest stages of spiritual advancement can find for themselves good work on the Earth -- not only in personal development but also in service, which consists in participation in the Evolutionary Process.
And let everyone think: how can I serve others, how can I be useful to others?
Even taking care about plants and animals, providing other people with food, clothing, dwelling, giving birth to children and upbringing them, etc -- all this is also necessary. There are many other possibilities as well. And let the main principle of making choice here be the following:
To help everyone in everything good and to try to harm no one as possible: by deeds, words, and even by thoughts or emotions.

And now let us to talk about this in more detail. Even among religiously thinking people it is hard to find those who understand the meaning of the word Absolute. And there are very few who know the mechanisms of correct growth of the consciousness, say nothing of knowing about moving from one spatial dimension to another and about cognition of the Creator in His Abode!
We discussed these questions many times in our books and films-lectures (see a list of most important of them at the end of this text and on the site www.spiritual-art.info); here I am going to describe it briefly.
So, what is God?
This word means, first of all, the Creator (He is called also God-the-Father, Jehovah, Allah, Ishvara, Tao, Primordial Consciousness, Adibuddha, Svarog, and by other names in different languages). The Creator is not an old man sitting on a cloud, as He is depicted sometimes, but an infinite in size and time Ocean of Subtlest Primordial Consciousness abiding in the highest spatial dimension.
By the word God people call also Representatives of the Creator coessential to Him -- incarnated and non-incarnated. Such non-incarnated Representatives of the Creator are called Holy Spirits; in aggregate They are called the Holy Spirit (that is, this term has so-called collective meaning).
It is important to understand that the Creator and His Creation compose One Multidimensional Universal Organism. It is the Absolute, that is ‘Absolutely Everything".
The Absolute undergoes constant, unceasing development, Evolution. It is for the sake of this process that the Creator creates islets of matter in His Ocean -- planets where units of consciousness (individual souls) evolve through consecutive incarnations into material bodies of plants, animals, people. The ultimate goal of their development is to achieve (through human incarnations) Perfection and Mergence with the Creator.
From the above said it must be clear that man is not a body, contrary to what many people believe. Man is a soul, consciousness that incarnates for a time into material bodies for the sake of going through the next stage of its development.
Every one of us possesses freedom of will -- our right to take decisions in many small or large life situations, which affects our further destinies. (That is we build our destinies ourselves. And the Holy Spirits -- our Divine Tutors and Teachers -- realize these destinies.) The process of destiny formation in dependence to ethically important decisions made by us has to be studied by the direction of science called ethics. Ethics has to be considered as an integral part of ecology -- the science about relationships of an organism with its environment. And the latter includes not only the world of material objects but also non-material forms of life with all non-incarnated beings and God.
What has to be the goal of our aspirations and deeds on the Earth (apart from fulfilling most basic needs of life of ours and of our closest companions)?
It is clear that our bodies have to be healthy. For this purpose it is useful to have medical knowledge, in particular to know hygienic rules; also from childhood one has to temper the organism, to develop strength, endurance. It is also important to adhere to killing-free diet: feeding on bodies of killed animals results in contamination of the organism with coarse bioenergies; it contradicts also the principle of LOVE given to us by God. (However, our killing-free diet has to be rich with protein food: milk products, mushrooms, nuts, etc... More details in ).
It is also very important to understand that one cannot achieve significant success on the spiritual Path without a developed intellect. People who have no developed intellect are not capable of comprehending what we discuss here! Even if they become believers, their religiosity -- if they do not come in the beginning to a sound religious environment -- is reduced to worshiping material objects (various idols, etc.), to mystical fear of warlocks, vampires, the end of the world; this leads to schizophrenia, to coarsening of the consciousness and as a result to hell...
... One can advance toward the Creator only through the refinement of the consciousness and development of love in oneself. Only developed love directed at the Creator can help one to approach and merge with Him!
Therefore it is very important to take care that children receive good education, and as they grow up the process of their intellectual development does not stop! Let the task of choosing profession and working place also help them in this!
For every person it is useful to strive to comprehend more deeply the principles of righteous life on the Earth suggested to us by God. The main one of them is the principle of LOVE. [4,5, and others]
One cannot achieve ethical perfection without working with the reflexogenic zones of emotional-volitional sphere -- chakras and some main meridians.
God is Love -- He said these words for us. Yet it is wrong to interpret this statement as "God will forgive all our sins". No it has nothing to do with this. This statement means that we can realize our aspiration for the Creator, aspiration for mergence with Him only through striving to become similar to Him, striving to become LOVE!
LOVE is an aggregate of corresponding emotional states. And it is desirable that every one of us habituates oneself to living in these states. As for coarse states of the consciousness, which program us to hell, -- let they become so foreign to us that in no case we can enter them! Let me repeat that it becomes real for those who use the above mentioned system of training in psychical self-regulation .
... So let anahata become the main chakra for us. It is in this chakra that the most important part of human being -- spiritual heart -- begins its growth. Let us learn to live in this chakra: to look, to listen, to perceive the outer world from it, to speak, to take decisions from this chakra.
In this way gradually we become spiritual hearts -- and then begin to grow outside the body. With time in the process of this growth we become spiritual hearts comparable in size to our planet and then even larger. The growing spiritual heart has to possess developed arms of the consciousness coessential to the spiritual heart. With the hands of this arms we can caress, stroke, heal...
The consciousness developed in this way accepts the function of thinking -- outside of the material body.
Refusal of course emotional states and cultivation of the emotions of subtle tender LOVE -- together with the quantitative growth of oneself as a spiritual heart -- this gives us the ability to perceive (to see, to hear, to embrace) Holy Spirits, Who become our real spiritual Teachers. Entering with the consciousness into Their giant forms (forms of Consciousnesses) allows us to begin mastering Mergence with Them. And then -- They will lead Their deserving disciples into the Abode of the Creator.
* * *
Of course one cannot achieve this quickly, immediately: the highest spiritual stages can be mastered only if one dedicates the whole life to God -- to developing oneself for the sake of merging with Him and serving Him.
I understand also that some people can hardly believe that everything written here is real; it can happen to those who have not started yet serious work on perfecting themselves on the spiritual Path. However, by using the methods of self-development described in our books and demonstrated in our films one can make it real.
Let me note also that knowledge presented here is not new. The same was taught -- though in other words -- by Thoth-the-Atlantean, Hermes Trismegistus, Pythagoras, Krishna, Lao Tse, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ, Babaji from Haidakhan, Sathya Sai Baba, and other Great Teachers . It has been always taught by God! In our works we present just an integration of this knowledge and a detailed description of how one can traverse the spiritual Path and come to the spiritual heights which were demonstrated many times by Messengers of the Creator.
In conclusion let me stress again that the main direction of self-development on this Path is the development of the spiritual heart. All serious spiritual achievements are gained only through this!
... This is in brief the scheme of full spiritual self-realization of man, a straight and shortest Path to the Creator. Let us walk this Path -- and soon our lives will be filled with the joy of communication with God in blissful calm, without diseases and other calamities and suffering!
I wish you success!
