CONSCIOUSNESS AND PERSONALITY. FROM THE INEVITABLY DEAD TO THE ETERNALLY ALIVE

T: Also there was such a key question: "How can we distinguish a good God-pleasing deed from a deed that God is not willing?" And an example was given that "a God-pleasing deed is an action, at the moment of which you experience joy, but if there occur..., some other states come..."
IM: Listen, but if I’m eating a candy and feel the joy because of it - is it a God-pleasing deed or not? (T: Well, you know...) It’s my personal business, right? To the dictation of consciousness. After all, it is experiencing this joy. Now, as a Personality, I don’t really care what an organism that lives in my organism wants to eat, and why it needed this chocolate. (Zh: And which parasite wants...) Well, generally speaking, which parasite wants the chocolate now? But the consciousness cares about this. Well, what does God have to do with this, well, it’s simple... What does it mean a God-pleasing deed or not a God-pleasing one? I’ll put it simply: all the deeds that lead to spiritual development and especially, to spiritual saving of people – are God-pleasing deeds. All the rest is human deeds, deeds that are inevitably dead and have nothing to do with the Spiritual World. Whether I praised you or I scolded you – well, what difference has it made? A simple question. So if I prompted you, gave you a tool, and only when you accepted it and began to use it, – now, that is already a God-pleasing act. But if I gave you the tool, I've spent my time, but you didn’t want it. Again, I come back to you and tell you. Am I doing a God-pleasing deed or not? Of course not. Because at the time when I offered you a tool, you refused – you made your choice. Well, God be with you, little goldfish, swim along; and I'll find someone who needs this tool. I will not waste alive time on the dead, you know? Because those times are over. The alive for the living, dead for the dead. Everything is simple. And maybe in the minds of those very atheists, this will be perceived as injustice: "Well, how is that? God, He is obliged." Well, God does not owe anything to anyone, first of all. God does not even know whether you exist or not, until you mature and become someone whom God will notice. We’ve already talked about this many times. Well, I’ve said it once again. Now, as for atheists, this will infuriate them, they’ll say: "Well, how’s that? He is God, He must know everything." Excuse me, as of today, the Internet knows everything. Does it know what you have in your left pocket? But perhaps you have no pocket, if you are, pardon me, resting in the negligee. Well, isn’t it so? What does it have to do with the Internet? It’s just an example. Or what does the alive have to do with the dead world, as a matter of fact? Yes, it may be insulting. Insulting to whom? Insulting to consciousness. What did it hook at? At the pridefulness it hooked. And what is pridefulness? And pridefulness is precisely that anchor, which drags one down. Isn’t it so? It is.
And that's how it all starts. We must not coddle and cherish pridefulness and selfishness in ourselves, but we must work, we must study, we must strive. If you want to be saved – do save yourself! There will be no other way out. Nobody will pass it and do it for you. But there is another expression, that's when they say that "the prideful people - they say... we'll save ourselves" and so on, that "without God, a human will not be saved." So who is right here, and who is wrong, well, let's say so? In fact, it's true that a person cannot be saved without God, because it is unrealistic. But on the other hand, after all, it is a person makes the choice, isn’t it? When does he get real power, love, and freedom? Only when he deserves it. When this becomes his only willingness and desire. When he steps over the satan, going towards the Light, right? When he jumps over these bottomless pits, aspiring to exit. Well then, of course, he gets help. Say, does God give His helping hand? (Zh: Yes.) Yes, He does, when you enter His home. (Zh: Yes, when you are pure with Him...) He greets you. But, (only) when you enter His home. And that's the point. (Zh: When there is purity of intent) But the consciousness will hold you by the tail to the last. (Zh: Yes, and will suck you dry). And will try to tear you away, yes. Even as you are walking through the door, it will still try to pull you back. (Zh: Scream...) Of course! And here it’s your choice, what to listen to: consciousness, or go to God, once again. Well, when a person is already walking through the door, then there is no doubt that consciousness no longer plays a role. Isn’t that so?
T: Igor Mikhailovich, what is God's help?
IM: It is His love. It is His power. This is exactly what God's help is. Well, again no matter what God never leaves people. And when it is necessary, He gives them tools. He will certainly give them tools, He will find an opportunity and a way. The question is: will people take these tools and whether or not they will use them? We have already said many times that it is easy to work with a good tool, however one cannot build a house with a thirty-two kilo kettlebell tied to a trowel. That's the point. But when pure good tools are given, then a person can easily just pave the way, the way home to God. God never leaves, He always gives. Well, again, the question is in the human choice.
