The art of living. The science of the soul

At the subconscious level, we are all united. Therefore, if we want to be happy and prosperous, we must care not only for ourselves and our own character but also for the character of our loved ones.
The art of living. The science of the soul

So where does illness come from? The answer is obvious — it comes from our subconscious. Our higher «self» generates disease to save us from death or from the decay and illness of the soul. When a person begins to relate incorrectly to the world and their soul becomes attached to something, our higher «self» already knows what will happen next.

The soul begins to attach, love turns into passion, and passion into a mad attachment and hatred, and the person starts to make claims to whom or what they are attached to, and then it all reflects back onto themselves. Up there, on the subtle plane, all of this is visible.

What can the subconscious do then? Suppose a man begins to fall in love with a woman, and by nature, he is extremely clingy, and the more beautiful the woman, the stronger his attachment, and as a result, he might end up killing her or himself.

So, the man sees the woman, falls in love with her, shows her attention, she rejects him although she likes him but gives him her phone number.

The man plans to call her, but at that moment he starts having health problems, first one then another, then he ends up in the hospital for several months, the doctors cannot cure him because he cannot really be treated.

When the man finally leaves the hospital, the acquaintance remains far in the past, and he doesn't even realize that the illness saved his life.

If we want to heal, we must find emotional harmony and overcome our inner conscious and subconscious aggression; we must control our desires and instincts, not worship them; we must learn to love without attachment, understand that love is always a sacrifice; we must stop being consumers.

If we learn all this, we will have another, better fate. People often ask me serious questions, for example, where is the human soul located? The question is simple, but neither religion nor science can answer it. So where is the soul? Twenty, twenty-five years ago, I said that humans think with their gut.

I saw on the subtle plane that during the thought process, surprisingly, the intestine would activate first and receive all the basic information, which then went to the brain.

I was surprised because I knew the intestine has no capacity to think, yet I described what I saw in a book and many people laughed at me. However, not long ago, scientists found that there are many nerve clusters around the intestine, and now they also say that we think with our gut.

Returning to the question of where the soul is located. Now it can be answered. What we call the soul: our feelings, our subconscious, is a field.

The soul exists outside the body, so no matter how much we search, we will not find it in the human body, although in the East it was believed that the soul is located in the stomach. It was also believed that the soul is somewhere around the chest, and therefore, when a person's soul is dying, their heart aches.

Over time, I've concluded that the soul is in the human body and outside it at the same time, meaning a part of what we call the soul is in the body and connected with the physical body, nervous system, glands, brain.

The interconnection of two opposites — the field and the physical matter—is the process of thinking and feeling. Now let's return to the question of why people think with their gut.

There's an expression «gut feeling», in other words, a person feels what will happen in the future, and they feel it with their gut. Many people, relying on these sensations, can quite accurately predict what should happen. How is this possible?

The fact is, if the consciousness thinks in words, the subconscious thinks in images, meaning we actually think with feelings, images, the process of thinking occurs at the level of feelings.

The subconscious thinks only in images, pictures, and if a thought can have only one interpretation, an image can have dozens.

Sometimes a single word can have dozens of meanings, because at the base of the word lies an image, which can be deciphered by dozens of words, thus the process of thinking occurs at the level of feelings through an image.

Our higher «self» generates disease to save us from death or from the decay and illness of the soul.

What happens to the intestine when a person begins to think? The intestine perceives these images. Not thoughts, not words, but images, which it then passes on to the brain. Simply put, the intestine thinks with feelings. So where, indeed, is the soul located?

It turns out, the soul exists both outside and inside a person, and the connecting point of the soul and the subconscious with the body, with the external ego, is the intestine. The intestine is the most ancient organ; it appeared at the very beginning, when humans did not yet have a developed brain, and it processed all information. Gradually, as the human brain developed, it still initially perceives the main information about the future, about what will happen.

The functioning of the liver and intestine is linked to the future, while the function of the pancreas is tied to the present. When a person loses their bearings in life, it is the intestine and nearby organs like the kidneys and liver that react first, followed by all other organs.

Thanks to the intestine, we can feel the future. The liver is directly connected to the intestine; therefore, when a person faces problems with the future, when the energy of the future begins to wane, the liver typically falls ill because our organs are closely linked to field structures.

This unity of organs and field structures is also a unity and a struggle of opposites. The field and physical matter are opposites, but they coexist, and this is true for everything in the Universe.

For instance, scientists initially believed that the electron was a particle, but later discovered that it behaves like a wave when passing through narrow slits.

Scientists were forced to acknowledge that the electron is both a wave and a particle; in other words, it is simultaneously matter and a field.

If that's the case, then matter is a structured field. A human, like an electron, is both matter (physical body) and a field, with one permeating the other.

Previously, scientists debated whether spirit, that is, the field, or matter, that is, the substance, was primary. Later, they discovered that the field could generate particles that exist autonomously for a while and then dissolve back into the field or, as it is commonly said, into the vacuum.

Initially, scientists thought the vacuum was emptiness, that the main energy of the Universe was enclosed in matter, but it suddenly turned out that the energy of the vacuum is billions of times greater than the energy of matter, making matter seem illusory compared to the vacuum. Thus, the real, objective reality is the vacuum, emptiness, nothing; and the illusory something, very weak, delicate, and transient, is the matter, the material that we have always revered as fundamental and primary.

Everything that science has come to understand was long ago known to religion, which asserted that everything came from nothing, that this entire world emerged from emptiness.

The Creator made all that is visible from the invisible, so religious revelation, which is already thousands of years old, actually describes physical processes that science is only just approaching.

As I have written before, at the field level, we are all united and only differ on the external level; in other words, at the subtle level, all people are united, but especially close relatives, such as parents and children, are particularly closely connected.

At one seminar, I recounted how a man came to me and told the following:

- I can't earn money. It seems like money is coming into my hands, but suddenly something happens and, in the end, contracts and agreements fall through, and I lose money. It's some kind of fantasy, just continuous trouble. I'm smart, talented, energetic, I could be earning a hundred times more than now, but somehow it doesn't work out! Maybe someone has cursed me or it's some kind of hex because I see that something is happening! I looked at his field and said:

- Now I'll tell you what's happening. The reason for your money problems is the character of your wife.

She is a selfish, greedy person; she should not have a lot of money because then she would become even greedier and more self-serving, imprinting on her character and soul and eventually harming your children, who could become sick and even die.

To save the children, it's necessary to improve their mother's character and cleanse her soul, so she must experience a lack of money and therefore you are not earning as much as you could.

As you understand, this example speaks to that very unity at the field level. Therefore, if we want to be happy and prosperous, we must care not only about ourselves and our character but also about the character of our loved ones. According to the laws of dialectics, the improvement of character goes two ways: by the carrot and stick approach.

If we want to give our neighbor only sweet candies, only take care of them, sacrifice for them and ask nothing in return, then we will not improve but spoil them.

If we are

despotic and only demand, unwilling to praise and care, then we will see no results.

A person is not educated by reproaches and accusations, nor by flattery, handouts, compliments — in other words, by positive emotions alone.

Love is dialectical; it both gives and takes away, and when we understand this, we begin to change. If we only want to receive, we will only lose.

Once again, I repeat, at the subtle level, we are all united. How we behaved in childhood, adolescence, and early adulthood will inevitably affect our descendants. We all must suffer for what we have once done.

Psychologists do not always grasp this because contemporary psychology is focused on the human consciousness, on the body. Modern science states that our consciousness is secondary and only related to the body, hence modern psychology stems from the belief that consciousness is a product of the body.

With such an approach, it is impossible to find answers to serious questions because there are two types of consciousness: primary and secondary.

If we want to seriously engage in psychology, we must understand that the primary, main consciousness is the soul, which existed before the appearance of humans and will continue after their death, and it is no coincidence that the word «psychology» is derived from the Greek psyche (soul) and logos (study).

Modern psychology cannot understand why a person who received a promotion and a salary twice as high as before suddenly commits suicide.

According to psychologists, positive emotions heal, so a person who received a promotion should recover from all diseases, become happy, and everything should go well for them. Instead, they end their life by suicide.

From the perspective of classical psychology, this action is inexplicable, but let's try to understand what happens to a person in such moments.

On the external level, the person has only positive emotions, but if they experienced despondency, depression, or an unwillingness to live when they had troubles at work, then all this negativity accumulated and surfaced not when they were feeling bad, but, strangely enough, when things started going well.

If, while you had no money, you hated people, were greedy, despondent, and did not want to live, then all this accumulated in the subconscious, and as soon as you receive a large sum of money and feel happiness, all these negative emotions and feelings are activated, and you must work through them.

You might have also noticed that often people who receive a large sum of money or experience great luck soon fall seriously ill or face misfortunes, up to and including death.

To understand why a person, who has been very fortunate, who should be happy, does not want to live and falls into depression, one needs to know that besides consciousness, a person has a soul, and that a person thinks with their soul.

If a person's soul is attached to this world, then external happiness intensifies the attachment, which results in increased aggression that eventually always turns into depression.

See what happens: a surge of happiness is followed by a subconscious surge of hatred towards people and the world, and then towards oneself, ultimately leading the person to commit suicide.

Psychologists still cannot answer the question of how and why a theater can exist.

The fact is that theatrical play is a phenomenon that completely contradicts modern psychology because, according to it, a person cannot experience two feelings at the same time, especially if they are opposite feelings.

However, in the theater, this happens constantly, and when an actor plays in a tragedy (and tragedy is the highest genre of classical drama, generating the greatest intensity of feelings), they simultaneously experience opposite emotions.
While playing a role, an actor may feel hatred, despair, regret, sorrow, and at the same time, they feel happiness because they are listened to, they are attended to.

When opposite feelings, from the perspective of modern psychology, stop fighting each other and merge into one, then the theater ends, the actor's performance becomes meaningless.

Often, if an actor cries on stage, so does the character; if the actor rejoices, so does the character.

In films, actors cry real tears, but in theater, on stage, when the character cries, the actor should actually be feeling happiness.

Theater cannot exist if the actor does not experience two opposite emotions simultaneously.

When the ancient Greeks saw an actor who cried for real, they pelted him with rotten eggs and tomatoes because they understood that the theater was dying.

Theater lives when there is a potential difference, an opposition of feelings, when one feeling contradicts another and both are intensely charged—then development occurs.

The theater exists because a person has two «selves», according to the principle of trinity—three «selves»: two opposite «selves» and a higher «self» that unites them.

A person has an external ego related to the body and an external level of consciousness, as well as a subconscious «self»—their higher «self», which is primary in relation to the body and which controls the second «self».

These two «selves» can experience opposite emotions.

In real theater, the principle of trinity is also observed: there is an actor experiencing one emotion, a character experiencing another emotion, and an actor playing a role—like two personalities united into one.

The principle of trinity is the principle of development. Misunderstanding that our consciousness is our soul and our higher «self» leads to the conclusion that a person cannot experience two emotions simultaneously, and if we continue to think this way, we will never understand what theater is and what true art is.
