This video is taken from a video with participation of Igor Mikhailovich Danilov — "Freedom from Beast's dictatorship within yourself".
In this video Igor Mikhailovich explains the difference between Spiritual Love (boundless or Divine Love) and earthly "love". What role does manipulation play in family relationships? Why do we see in movies, mass media, novels and, actually, everywhere that love it is always suffering or a tragedy. Is that true? Can it be different if in a family one person chose to follow the spiritual path? What will change? Why do people strive to be loved and not to love? What are our thoughts and how do they influence our lives? What is a demon and what is an Angel? How can a person understand whose side he is on?
Divine or Spiritual Love and earthly "love" — what's the difference?
Igor Mikhailovich Danilov:
"Let’s say, there is True Love — it is Love in the Spiritual World, it is Love which is boundless or Divine Love. There are no gender differences in it, there’s nothing in it. It is unity of people. It is indeed the unity of people in Love.
Why? Because in that World there’s nothing except happiness and love. There are no negative emotions there, well, it’s for those who neither understand nor know. Why are there no negative emotions? Because they cannot exist there. There are no emotions there at all. There’s happiness, there’s love there. This is what that World is. Because it’s the World of God.
Love or manipulation? Family relationships
Whereas for people consciousness always tries to copy. And so, it inserts the concept of “love” into a framework of affection and responsibility. But again, what is behind this affection, responsibility and everything else, right? Manipulation, comfort, hormones, and all the rest.
While in actual fact, if we take and consider without bias any of these amorous states, we will come to an understanding of relationships between two people. And they don’t have Love as such in the higher understanding. They always watch over each other, they always try to manipulate one another, they always want something from each other. And what is there everywhere? There’s, first and foremost, egoism. And the other person is detached. And even when they say that “we kind of feel each other”, and so on… Eventually, of course, they feel. The system mixes up, consciousnesses of the couple start working almost like of a single person due to the long side-by-side stay. And they can even sit and be silent, just like spiritual people. But do they feel each other?
Well, it’s possible to feel, and no words are needed, because there’s a single language. But it’s when people, so to say, have escaped from the embrace of consciousness a little bit.
But consciousness copies just in the same way. When people have got used to each other to such an extent that they live in a single little world, especially old people, they start simultaneously inserting identical remarks. Why? Because consciousness is already almost one for the two. There are already two viewers with a little more actors on the stage. The system is simply saving on them.
Can Love be a tragedy or suffering?
But may this be called Love? No. Because it means always suffering. And here, note that again everywhere: in various novels, in movies, in all mass media, which force people to follow patterns and which encode consciousness, – everywhere love is described as suffering, tragedy, something else, meaning, it is filled with some worries and emotions.
And now let’s consider, what do we know about emotions, about suffering, and about all the rest? This is what forces us to invest attention. That is, literally to pay for someone else’s scenes or pay for emptiness, to put it bluntly. Or, speaking the language of economics, it’s a bad business. So, it turns out that people waste their spiritual powers on what is empty.
Yet, may people coexist, say, married couples? And how can it be otherwise, if we have such a lifestyle, if we’ve abandoned the communal order? There’s already such an individual one. People like it, they live so. Well, for God’s sake, let them live. If there’s such an order, so let it be. Elementary respect and understanding of each other are already a basis of family happiness. But when in the family there’s someone who is more or less spiritually free, he or she understands the other person. They understand what the septon field is telling their spouse right now, and so on. But if they are imbued with respect and, let’s say, they feel comfortable, again, comfortable and convenient with this person, they will never do anything bad to him or her and will help him or her. They are in three-dimensionality. Certain manipulation will take place anyway. It’s impossible to force a person to follow the spiritual path or vice versa. This is his choice.
However, joint habitation in three-dimensionality still leads to certain manipulation of each other, right? That is, someone must wash the floor, someone must go shopping, and so on. Well, and here trite consciousness snaps into action – wanting, not wanting, bargaining: I will do that you will do this, and the like. Elementary agreements with elements of manipulation. So, one shouldn’t make a tragedy out of it. But to call these things “love”, well, say, it’s sort of possible, but quotation marks should be used. What kind of love - earthly “love” or spiritual Love? But people often confuse it. That’s the problem.
Spiritually free person makes family stronger
However, if we talk about these things frankly and the way it is, it can break the family order, because people will start copying without grasping the essence. And to understand all this, one should develop spiritually, then everything is simplified. And people don’t leave their families and they don’t ruin them, but, on the contrary, if someone really steps on the spiritual path, families get stronger. They cannot be ruined even if/when one person in the family really stepped on the spiritual path, and is engaged in spiritual development and the other one is engaged in or gets involved with some religion. Because any religion still leads to God. Well, and a person, if, let’s say, just gets involved with a religion, he performs rites, something else, but continues to live the same way as an ordinary person lived. Will it prevent them? No, it won’t.
A person who is following the spiritual path can enter any temple and visit any congregation. This doesn’t prevent him in any way. Because where God’s name is mentioned he should be comfortable. Because, at least, they tell about his Home.
It’s the same as you emigrated or, well, forced to stay for a while in another country, you recall your home, you feel god and you know that this is your home. And you know that sooner or later you will return there. If there is some gathering of people, and they speak about your native city or your native village, well, of course, it’s interesting to be there. And why not, why not to communicate with these people, like-minded ones, right? Because this is normal, this is natural.
Everybody strives to be loved…
As a rule, only in rare cases, when a person seeks love of one person. Other than that they... As there was an old movie: ”I," she says, "am walking and men are falling and falling down like stacks.
"I am beautiful, walking along the street, and all the oncoming guys are getting stunned. And those which are weaker, they are falling, falling, falling down and get arranged into stacks by themselves. Like this!"
Well, it is consciousness, which tells, “I will become so beautiful, just like… I am walking and men are falling and falling down”. Well, this is consciousness.
And as regards men, it is vice versa, so that all women right on them…
Why does he need all women? Did he ask himself? What will he do with them? And here is precisely “all are mine”, “everybody loves me”. Mind you, not “I love”.
Nobody strives and asks, "I love." Everybody strives to be loved: by people, by God. But where are YOU? Where is YOUR love?
But until a human learns to love, that is, until a human becomes a source of those spiritual powers – the Allat powers, he will be going around in circles and will be listening to his actors. That is, the person will be deluding himself.
Thoughts and their influence on our lives
Why does this happen? First of all, because in our childhood we are taught to do right things, not to do something. Don’t do this – this is not good, don’t do that – this is not good. And this you can do, this is good. This is what they teach us. But we are not taught what’s behind that, I mean, what makes us act this or that way. Even in childhood, to do what is not good.
And what’s behind it? It is precisely a thought that is behind it, which we do not generate, we perceive it. And those thoughts make us do and act towards others badly, even towards ourselves. (They make us) Commit certain actions that often harm ourselves, and we pay for them ourselves afterwards. This is how our consciousness works. If in childhood, we would be taught to monitor our thoughts, to control them, not to accept what is bad and if we were told how it is done, then in adult life we wouldn’t make mistakes either. We wouldn’t be striving in search for those who would love us, we would really love others, would love life, would love God, would love each other. And the world would be totally different.
It’s banal, it’s simple. It is simple, indeed. But in order for this simple to become reality for all people, hard work needs to be overcome. Everyone who understands this, who cares, who really cares.
Demons and Angels
Religions have existed for thousands of years. For as many years wars have existed. For as many years crimes and wrongdoings have existed. And for as many years the best people hurt their families and friends very often. Why does this happen? Because, excuse me, we, as people, are manipulated by those who since ancient times were called demons. Why demons? And what is a demon? And here, it would be very interesting to look back into ancient times, when these expressions initially appeared, and what they meant.
A demon denotes an integral part of a human, that is, the animal part of the human himself is a demon. If, since childhood, people understood that they have an Angel and they have a demon, and would stand on the Angel’s side, and if they were brought up understanding that a demon will eventually lead them to the grave, it won’t give them life, won’t give them freedom, they would get rid of it already in childhood. In ancient times, there was an interesting expression. If to translate it, let’s say, into our modern language, it would sound approximately like this: a free person remains free even in prison, while a slave of one's consciousness remains a slave even on the outside.
