I’m almost half-way through Save the World Within You, the second part of Arcady Petrov’s trilogy, Creation of the Universe. The book reads like an epic religious tale, and perhaps more importantly, seems deeply entrenched in the foundations of duality, i.e., heroes and villains, good and evil, heaven and hell, and an interplay between divine and demonic forces.
Inside the subterranean Sun, Mugen sits on the thrown in a giant hall he who once called himself “the only zealous god”. For some reason he is jealous, but of whom would he be jealous if he was higher than the highest? He had countless names, changed his image countless times. We look at him in wonder: he is a man but not a man, a demon but not a demon. He is something incomprehensible and in-between. p. 248
For one who has been inclined to reject such matters, this journey into the depths of Hell by Petrov and his partner in liberation and ethereal justice, Igor Arepjev, was met with some initial resistance. However, I’ll stress that resistance is not dismissal. Indeed, I have utmost respect for the journey that they took, and in Petrov’s sharing. And in spite of the polarizing dip in duality, their overall purpose was unification and oneness, not of “forces,” per se, but of a conscious awareness of The Whole.
Irrespective of the plane of existence that these excursions were carried out on, or whether anyone believes that they actually exist, the imagination or memory was vivid enough to the one who shared it.
The goal that they achieved is an important one for each of us, believers and non-believers alike. Their mission was to remove a “mirror” in the collective unconscious that blocked awareness of the connection between the two hemispheres of perception. It’s like a “missing link” that humanity has long sought, but while science has been trying to confirm our connection to primates, the true connection to be appreciated has always been between “us”, the microcosm, and The Macrocosm, the Individual and the Divine. In other words, to see the oneness between the Creator and Creation, each within the Other.
Scientific-technical progress in its contemporary form is no more than a mass of dangerous discoveries and technologies. The world is not a workshop, nor a temple in and of themselves. It is both one and the other, and in it the creative process must be illuminated with the sublime light of moral guidance of the Lord’s revelation. p. 250
Considered supreme in its “objectivity,” science as practiced today is indeed like a child running amok, playing with nuclear toys, altering the food supply to kill its nutritional value, then using deadly drugs to play doctor and nurse on real people when their health inevitably declines, all with no moral compass because science has lost its humanity.
Not only science, but medicine, business, and even commerce, where the pursuit of money is considered an honorable objective in and of itself. Religion has lost its humility, thinking that large edifices and intercessors are needed to “represent” the unworthy masses, and any belief that isn’t our belief, is “wrong.” Tax assessors and collectors, bill collectors and intimidators all see no link between their actions’ effects on others and similar dynamics that evolve in their own lives. These are some of the consequences of thinking that power is in money, and making money into a god. The actions that we justify doing to each other and the planet Earth in the name of money is indeed hellish at times.
I am no longer surprised that realms can exist that are populated by energies that would be considered “dark.” Fortunately, I now appreciate that none are static, and that light is fundamental to, and implicit in all of creation, and will eventually be revealed. When you know that, what is there to fear?
Petrov and Arepjev, along with Grigori Grabovoi, have demonstrated, and are continuing to demonstrate the efficacy of their healing practices and principles by the results that they are achieving, without “technology” or medication, but with consciousness and natural gifts, on real people. Dismissing their accomplishments is an option, but would not be wise.
But then, what has skepticism or doubt ever had to do with wisdom?
If all of creation is information, and in itself neutral, then any resistance or affinity that I experience was my own self-limitation.
Having said that, I am deeply interested in, and committed to learning, understanding, and utilizing the Gifts that I have come to understand are God-given, not only to me, but to all of humanity. This includes the power to heal myself of any ailment or abnormality, without a doctor’s note or permission by any professed “Authority.”
The journey of consciousness is singular even though we make collective strides. As Petrov and Arepjev traveled through the depths of the valley of the shadows of death, I was touched at how they feared no evil, knowing not only that a divine presence was “with them,” but also within them.
This is actually one of the blessings of contrast, in that by moving in and through the core of a frightful or even stressful experience, you do one of two things; succumb to the stress or fright and its resultant downward spiral, or rise above it and ascend to new levels and realms of experience.
What are you choosing?
