What does it mean “living by spiritual is easy, but it’s very difficult to come to it, it’s a titanic work?” Can Life be difficult or hard? Is it difficult to Love?
Can something hinder on the spiritual path?
Do we need anyone to believe in a human or how to believe in oneself?
More answers to the questions can be found in the video with the participation of Igor Mikhailovich Danilov “From an Atheist to Holiness”
Zh: Yes, they do. And just here, also, a woman wrote in a letter that she encountered a misunderstanding, and she began to stop herself halfway. What does it mean "living by spiritual is easy, but it's very difficult to come to it, it's a titanic work"?
IM: Enormous work. In fact, if it were easy, everyone would be saints. Well, then it would not be appreciated. This is like it was before, when people didn’t have a body, right? It's like in Zoroastrianism. But they themselves asked for this in order to become worthy, to enter the World of God as equals among equals. A human, when studying how the system works, he understands that he is being manipulated, then he learns to resist it, he finds himself as a Personality, begins to develop himself as a Personality, then to control. He learns God’s Love. Meaning, coming into contact with the World… meaning, at first he understands that there is devil, he understands there is a Spiritual World, there is Love, he begins to develop what is precious to him, what brings him Life. Well, one fine day he just begins to live and he realizes that it's so easy...
Zh: Yes, it's very easy and it's very pleasant.
IM: Yes, but... it's easy, pleasant, it's joyful, this is Life. It cannot be ... Well, how can Life be complicated or hard?! How can it not be joyful?! Well, how can Love be burdensome, right?! (Zh: Yes) Well, without it, there's no point in existing here for even a single moment. They say: “Is it difficult to love or...?” Well, why is it hard to love?! It is scary not to love, but to love - it is (Zh: happiness) everything, this is happiness, yes. But this is when a person knows. When he found it, well it seems so easy, so simple. Well it's really easy and simple. But in order to make this step towards this simplicity, one needs to step over the devil. And this is not so simple, because you move with the help of the same consciousness, you study it precisely with its help. Well, it's natural that you stumble onto resistance, a plenty of substitutions and everything. But the question stands different: if your aspiration is sincere and true, and if you really go – you will surely reach! It’s impossible that you don't reach. But, if you listen to consciousness that says that you are a nobody and you haven’t learned anything and will never learn anything... Well, yet again, it's your choice, human, what can I say... That’s what democracy is, the highest democracy from God, the human right to choose: to choose Life or death, it is simply that. Well, there is one point: The World of God is eternal and it is for everyone who aspire to Life, but the other world, under the guidance of satan - it is definitely deadly dangerous.
Zh: Well, of course, it would be nice to expand on these points, where people stumble. After all, when getting this glimpse, contact, and already having experience of spiritual immersions, perception through feelings..., but a person is still distracted, consciousness distracts him.
IM: Of course. Well, let's just say, a person's existence is an ideal condition for the formation of an Angel. This should be understood. This is not God’s cruelty, absolutely not. God has given a chance. (Zh: atheists think so, that this is cruelty) And whether you take it or not, it is your choice. God can not be cruel, God is Love. And who prevents you from Loving? Who prevents you from Living? Well, who? No one. It is only your choice. So, why does a person choose precisely the earthly, precisely material? Why does he choose to judge someone? Why does he choose discord, wars? Why does he choose dirt instead of purity? Well, who forces him? No one besides consciousness. But if you know that consciousness is a tool of the devil, then why do you succumb to this?! After all, no one humiliates a human as much as his own consciousness. Isn’t it? Nobody makes a human so unhappy as his own consciousness, doesn't it? It belittles, it offends him, it mocks him, it glorifies him and belittles him at the same time, it leads him in circles around emptiness. And people are content with this. Well...
Zh: Yes. But the question also arises: "Alright, I believe, I feel, but I can’t. I need someone to have faith in me".
IM: And faith is, well we talked a lot about this... Faith in this case, it is not acceptable. Faith should be at the first step, when a person hopes - he believes and he goes. Faith can encourage you on the way to God, but it will not bring salvation. Knowledge and experience. There can be nothing else. One should earn his experience, he needs to get knowledge, he has to achieve it. When you learn the system, when you understand all this, when you feel that very Love, when you come into contact with the Spiritual World - what satan can bring you down?! This is a simple question. What can he do? Nothing. All is powerless, because it goes beyond the material world. Everything earthly, everything worldly, it all remains far behind.
IM: This is true. Just like the fact that "life should be acquired while you are alive". After death, you will not acquire anything, because you will be helpless. This is also true. But consciousness tells one otherwise, because it is beneficial for it. And the whole trouble... (Zh: ...yes, to each their own) Yes, and the whole trouble is that people don’t understand that consciousness is not who they are. But many people think: consciousness is me, the body is me, everything is mine. Yes, we feel, we feel that chemistry is working, neurons are working. Primary consciousness perceives all information about the body, and sense of touch. All this is analysed, it all works. The first experience that takes place – it happens through neurons. That is, you touched, and neurons, there're also neurons in fingers, they activated, information started (moving). What started? The electric current started. The discharge went, which excited a certain group of neurons. Which in their turn, gave out a certain image. This image was already perceived, let's say, by a quantum mechanism, yes? Meaning, consciousness itself is a quantum computer. Consciousness activated, perceived it all – and now the Personality already receives a certain picture. Well and then later – whether a Personality was seduced or it was not seduced. Where to go: right or left is the choice of the Personality. But consciousness offers a lot of routes at the same time, and this is multi-vector.
