Some people believe that there is no God.
Others say that there is God, but He is incognizable.
I know God very well; I communicate with Him as much as I want; I hear His directions and recommendations; I see Him in the Aspects of the Holy Spirit and of the Creator. It is not difficult for me to communicate with such Great Teachers as Jesus Christ, Babaji from Haidakhan, Sathya Sai Baba, and Others Greatest Ones, especially at Their working sites [18,39].
With confidence I can say that God is more visible for me than bodies of incarnate people.
Someone may ask: “How can it be?”
It can be because God is very big, and the Holy Spirits are giant! The Creator fills with Himself all the universal Infinity!
So, why cannot everyone see Him?
It is because I, in contrast to almost all people, indeed strived sincerely to keep an ethically impeccable way of life, and I dedicated almost 40 years to spiritual transformation of myself — with the purpose of cognition of Him and telling others about Him.
And I have managed to fulfill this, because during all these years, my motive for this work was love for Him, for His entire Creation, and for all units of life, including incarnate people.
How do I feel myself now? What do I mean by saying “I” when I talk about myself? Is there self-conceit, self-praise, self-advertisement? No. I simply do not feel myself. I have dissolved myself in Him. When I need to say “I” — it is nothing more than a “way of speaking”; otherwise, it would be impossible to express my thoughts to interlocutors, the speech would become unintelligible.
However, as you can see, I can express my thoughts quite adequately, and no one can reproach me for inadequate behavior. (“No one” except for aggressive primitives, thieves, alcoholics, killers, and other degenerated individuals, who regard only their way of life as the “norm”).
A few companions of mine, who have managed to traverse this Path together with me, can say the same about themselves.
The age of my body is more than 65 years old now. I entered on the Path of spiritual search when it was 27. As God gave me new methods of spiritual development, I shared them with my friends, and as these methods were accumulated, the stairway of spiritual ascent was formed from them. Then, I began to give courses of the art of psychical self-regulation [12-13] in different cities and countries.
However, out of thousands involved in this process only a few have managed to achieve the summit. Why? The answer to this question must be clear to you now.
In the latter years, neither I nor any of the people known to me give such practical classes. The methodology in general, concrete initial methods, and many “milestones” and “overtones” of the Path are well described by me and my colleagues in many books published in several languages, demonstrated in films, shown in photo galleries, etc.
In general I can review the following about the system developed as a result of this work:
Its creation began with my desire to become better, to cognize God, and to help others in this task. When I began this search, I strived to include in it all the best that I found in the history of spirituality on the Earth, and God helped me in this. He did this, among other ways, by becoming my direct spiritual Guide, my Guru.
The task of this system is to create the necessary preconditions for achievement of energetical purity of the organism and ethical purity, which is essential for successful advancement: God does not allow unworthy people to approach Him! It includes psycho-energetical methods, materials on classics of spiritual philosophy, published instructions of Divine Teachers, and necessary theoretical knowledge on the methodology of spiritual development.
One may ask: to which religious direction does this system belong?
It represents the integral knowledge and can be regarded as modern developed Hesychasm, as realization of the ideas of Yoga, of Sufism, of Taoism, of Buddhism, and of all other spiritual directions that have a healthy basis, also realization of the precepts of Thoth-the-Atlantean, Pythagoras, and other Representatives of the Creator.
The central part of this system consists in working with the spiritual heart. First, one has to purify and develop the anahata chakra, then one must begin to grow from it as a spiritual heart in the direction of refinement of the consciousness and direct growth of the consciousness. It is thanks to progress on this Path that God may be cognized in all His Aspects. This is the same Path that has been travelled by all of Those Who have achieved the Creator and came to Mergence with Him.

How could there be anything wrong with leading others to the Perfect, to the cognition of God? Nevertheless, during all the years of my spiritual service, I encountered many times violent hostility from the side of primitive envious persons and from servants of hell. Threats and attempts of punishment, promises to burn me alive, requirements to leave the country forever in two weeks, and even a real killing of me that resulted in two clinical deaths, etc. — such things constantly happened with me on this Path (see more details in [12,18]). There were also police investigations, slander spread through the Internet… For example, slanderers asserted that I was an alcoholic and was treated for alcoholism, that I was a patient of a mental hospital, that I founded a religious sect, that I arranged classes on group sex, and so.
Such attempts to defile the pure are the favorite pursuit of primitive people…
In the USSR there was an absurd sect created by a mentally ill person, Nikolay Antonov. It was condemned by the Orthodox Church and included into a list of destructive sects. It was called “the school of Antonov”. And some people decided to attribute the “glory” of that sect, created by my namesake, to me!… I was vilified by them on the Internet for many years!
However, my only relation to sectarianism consists in the fact that I studied the activity of many sects and opposed them by publishing scientific knowledge in my books.
To make it clearer, I should explain that the term sect denotes a significantly large association of people in the form of a religious organization which is distinguished by its own peculiar ritualism, by its false worldview and false understanding of the tasks of man in religious and social fields of life. Probably, no one would contest the assertion that in such religious organizations their members usually pay money to the leader and worship him or her.
As for me, there were no such things in my activity — even in plans or thoughts.
… Thus God tested the firmness and steadfastness of my love-aspiration for Him, my readiness to serve Him self-sacrificially.
Well, now I may say that I have managed to pass all these trials successfully.

In Islam there is the following formula: “Allah Akbar!” — “God is Great!”. It can be very useful not only for Muslims but for all other people, and not necessarily in Arabic pronunciation.
The Creator is indeed great! He is Infinite in space and time. He is the Universal Ocean of the Subtlest Truly Living Eternal and Infinite Consciousness. And He possesses the qualities of perfect Love, Wisdom, and Power.
He waits for us in Himself, invites us to enter Him, to flow into Him — so that we may become Parts of Him and in this state participate in the Evolutionary Process by helping incarnate beings.
The Path to Him is described. It includes two main directions of work: development of oneself and work on helping others.
And let our memory about His Blissful Greatness attract us to His Infinity and accelerate our advancement towards Him!
So, let everyone remember: God is Great! And He calls us to the Mergence with Him!
