Life revolves around God or around Death. It is very important to realize the real center of your life, your true motivations. From infancy, we were taught to flee from Death, because this false Center of egoistic existence comes along with the idea of “I am the body”. The body is born, which means it must die. From birth, our existence has unleashed around Death. But there is another True Center - the Source of Love, Beauty and Harmony.

   Karmic tasks are something like a “psychological dam” that blocks the flow of feeling of unconditional, Divine Love, not allowing it to flow freely through us from God into this world. This is the main direction for inner work on ourselves in this incarnation, which we, as Souls, have chosen ourselves to improve our ability to Love Unconditionally. When it is not worked out, the energy potential of the Soul cannot unfold to a great extent.The consequence of this is many problems in life and even diseases of the physical body. In rare cases, people with superstrong intuition know about their karmic tasks (but not their elaboration) from above directly (and even then, after going through hard life lessons). But most still need expert advice.
   It is necessary to clearly realize that without working through karmic tasks, no one can be truly happy in a long period of time. It is simply impossible, because that is the nature of the karmic tasks themselves. Therefore, there is no point in trying to find happiness in the outside world without changing internally and ignoring your karmic tasks. Do not confuse karmic tasks with self-realization in society. However, it is worth noting that even success in society is often impossible without working through karmic tasks, since the Soul simply does not have enough free mental energy for this (“prana”). The unfinished karmic task absorbs the "lion's share" of our life force.

   False ego is a false identification of the Eternal Soul with the mind, as well as with any Temporary forms (objects of Perception) that appear and disappear in the mind, including thought forms, forms of emotions and the form of the "physical" body. It must be understood that the so-called "physical" body is also only one of the many temporary forms of the mind.

   One single lonely Note can never be Music, it can never be Harmonious, no matter how high or low it may be. Even if you play a lonely note on the best musical instrument, it still will not become Music. But any Note becomes part of the Perfect Harmony, if it is associated with the Whole Melody, and also in tune with other Notes around it. Similarly, the individual nature of each of us can be harmoniously realized only if we with the Heart are aware of our connection with the Whole, with the Lord, which is similar to the Great Orchestra Conductor, distributing various individual Parts in the Harmony of Life.

   We live in memory, in the Consciousness of God. The Lord remembers us and that is what gives us the Energy to Live, to Perceive the world. But this is not the energy that sparks in an electrical outlet when you plug into your electrical appliance or fingers. This is the psychic energy of the feeling of love. Moreover, these words are not a metaphor, but a literal description of our deep Connection with the Source of Life - God, present in our Heart. The Lord remembers us and we Live. But perhaps our main problem is that we do not remember the Lord. We ourselves forget about Him, being overly attracted to the outside world and its egocentric sensual pleasures. 
   And this our ingratitude, this oblivion of the One, who by his remembrance gives us the Energy to Live, begets all our sufferings. After all, forgetting about the One who gives us the Energy of Love and, at the same time, expecting future happiness is even more stupid than to stop charging your gadget and hope that it will work normally. Of course, this is an unexpected comparison, but it is very accurate.

   The danger of the philosophy of impersonalism

   Almost all of those who speak of the danger of impersonalism, a philosophy that denies the Reality of the Personality of Godhead, are still themselves sick of them. And we ourselves cannot say that Soul has already completely recovered from this illness. Moreover, we, to put it mildly, do not fully understand what it is, because the essence of impersonalism is like the rotten root of our false ego. Therefore, to comprehend it is incredibly difficult. Indeed, it is one thing to simply say that God is a Person, and quite another to Realize the Reality of This Person in the process of spiritual practice. And this is possible only with the help of the Grace of the Lord Himself and the Spiritual Teachers. In itself, the comprehension of the essence of impersonalism is already a great achievement for the Awakening Soul. The essence of impersonalism is hidden in the thinnest layer of the shell of the Soul; it is the basis of an “inverted” egocentric and materialistic view of the world. To the end and to see fully the rotten essence of impersonalism - this means to overgrow it. Only when the Soul really sees this rotten root in its own inner world, only then it Realizes God as a Person. But it's not a cheap thing at all.

   What is "spiritual communication"?

   To move to a higher level of Consciousness, you need to update your social circle. It is necessary to search for spiritual or, at least, good communication. Moreover, it is important to understand that if someone simply speaks about God, or if someone wears spiritual clothing, then communication with such people will not necessarily be “Spiritual communication” in the true sense of this phenomenon. After all, atheists and materialists can also talk about God.

   For example, Lenin also spoke about God. He said that there is no God. It is clear that communication with Lenin could not be called "spiritual communication." Or someone can walk in spiritual clothes, but his thoughts and words can come from a materialistic, mundane experience, from an egocentric mind, even if he talks about God. And in this case, we cannot call such communication truly “spiritual.” A truly spiritual communication only becomes when it is spiritualized, inspired from Above by the Flow of Descending Knowledge from Spiritual Teachers.

   Any egoistic sensual pleasure in this world is always only an unconscious way to drown the pain of separation from God. This is a kind of "anesthesia" from the pain of being in the "material" world. After all, separation from God is separation from True Love and True, and not surrogate happiness. Too often, we call “happiness” the action of such “anesthesia”, and too often, we call “love” the satisfaction of our desire to exploit someone or something to extract pleasure.

   The lessons of Destiny do not come because we did something bad, but in order that we do something good. To think the contrary means subconsciously to consider God as a vindictive and evil police tyrant. After all, even when a child comes to a regular school, he is not told there: “Now we will teach you, because you are an ignorant and stupid creature who doesn’t know how much two plus two will be!” No. The child is told that he needs to learn in order to grow and benefit society. So why are we subconsciously convinced that the Lessons of Destiny and Divine Reality are more evil than ordinary school?

   The maxim "The Way of the Heart" or "To Live with the Heart" is often understood to be fundamentally wrong. It is very convenient for our false egoistic mind to think that “to live with the Heart” is to do everything that you want. But actually “Living with the Heart” means to do what the Lord wants from you. Someone may exclaim: “But this is my heart, so what does God have to do with it?” The essence is that the Lord lives in everyone's Heart, and not being aware of His Presence in his Heart means “to live with the head”, and not Heart of.

   A good relationship is when we serve our partner with sincere Joy. If we do not swear and do not beat each other, this does not mean that we have a good relationship.
