“Lao, how did You fall in love with
God? How did You fall in love with God so much that
You and so many students of Yours attained Mergence
with the Creator?”
“I do not know… Even when I was a
child, He was always near Me… I knew that His
fathomless eyes always look at Me and give Love, and
I dissolved in this Love… When I listened to rusting
of leaves or to whispering of rain, to murmur of
brook or to singing of birds — I always heard His
voice… In the quietness of evening and in the
clearness of morning — He was near Me. He told Me
about love… He smiled with the corolla of every
flower, caressed Me with sunlight, stroke Me with
the wind touching My face… When I walked the earth,
I felt His hands, which supported and guided Me…
“… When does a baby begin to love
its mother? When it grows in her flesh? Or when it
drinks her warm milk for the first time? Or when it
sees her first smile?… The baby does not know it.
The baby just grows in this love.
“I do not know how I fell in love
with God. I was born in His love, breathed it, grew
in it. And My love for Him grew together with Me…
“Then I understood that people do
not know this love… And I began to seek how to help
“Thus I found My lake, and on its
bank an ashram was built… There God began to teach
Me how to help people — He taught Me love, care, and
patience of a mother who supports her children with
her palms… My children were flowers, birds, trees,
grass, people — My people who learned Love…
“It is in this place that I became
that Lao whom you know now… And My heart became a
Lake of the Divine Love — a small drop of the
Great Ocean. Everyone coming to Me submerged
into Its Waters and took with themselves as much
love as they can contain… Those who stayed with Me
in the ashram grew in My Heart, which never
separated from the Ocean of the Creator anymore.
“… Also I would like to tell you the
following. On the spiritual path, a spiritual
warrior is never left alone; God always takes part
in the warrior’s advancement. In other words, the
spiritual advancement is not the result of the
efforts of the warrior alone, but the result of the
common work of the warrior and God.
“It is God Who creates for spiritual
warrior the conditions for further advancement. By
doing this God gives the warrior a chance to become
that what the warrior chooses to be.
“God gives the warrior possibilities
for self-development by involving His Power in this
process. The more fully and self-sacrificially the
spiritual warrior is devoted to the work of
self-development and helping others in their
development, the more marvelous possibilities and
prospects God provides to such a warrior.
“I want everyone walking the Path of
Good to remember always about the constant presence
of God in their lives and never doubt His Power! He
who goes through life together with God, feeling
always His presence, can never become dejected.
After all, dejection is a denial of the presence of
the infinite Divine Power in one’s life, a
separation of oneself from God, a refusal to accept
“… With subtle morning mist I cover
green shoots, which have just appeared from the

they are My children. I support them with My hands,
warm them with gentle sunlight.
“They grow under the Rays of My

upon them. I help them to become stronger, to grow
up, and to bloom.

“Be gardeners in My Garden and help
Me to grow My flowers!
“The heart that has contained the
Infinity of the Creator’s Love becomes a Temple
of God. Then it can create hearths of
spirituality in any place on the Earth.
“If one became a Temple of God
and represents now the Abode of the Creator, then
through such a person a Divine Stream begins to flow
— a Source of the Water of Life, a Source of
the True Life. Everyone drinking from such a
Source receives a chance to begin their own ascent!
“God needs your present earthly
bodies! They connect the World of God — and the
physical plane! Through these bodies people can see
the Light of the Creator, the Light of Truth!
Therefore, dematerialization of your bodies is not
planned for you. Instead, service is needed! If you
perform dematerialization, then you cannot help
people from the incarnate state, and this is
undesirable at present!
“Every one of you has to burn with
the desire to give God to other, the desire to shine
from the life-giving Source of Truth, to which
thirsting souls may come…
“When serving, you have to shine
with Divine Fire! Give Us — to everyone!
“My dream and the dream of every One
of Us is to turn the Earth into a blooming Ashram!
Though We understand how much evil there is on the
“Lao! What can one do to prevent
situations when children who receive our knowledge
‘fall back’ to the opposite direction?”
“First, you have to develop love in
the children! Then such ‘falls’ will be impossible.
A soul which has grown as love cannot degrade!
“Second, you have to strive to
create groups of children (or children and adults)
similar to forest ashrams — with pure and harmonious
environment for living and growing. It is in such
environment that one can form in souls strong,
positive principles of life, morals, principles of
interaction with the world of living nature.
Forest schools are the possibility to help to
survive those shoots of good which, at the
beginning, need to be cared for constantly.
“To be different from others —
normally it is not possible for a soul in a child’s
body. To oppose alone the aggressive primitivism is
possible only for an adult and strong person. Also,
not all children can withstand by themselves the
temptations of the dull contentment of the tamas
“But if there are companions on the
Path, then the child — even if he or she was an
outcast — accepts a new positive role and becomes
one of the heroes-pioneers, defenders of the good!
“To a child, it is very important to
have like-minded companions both among adults and
“… One has to lay in children the
foundation of development in the form of growth of
love! Then future difficulties, including
temptations of the egoistic attitude toward the
world, become less dangerous.
“It is love that has to be the
foundation of education of souls of any age! This
makes their degradation impossible! If the arms of
the spiritual heart — the arms which give, create
love — became the basis of soul’s life, such a soul
cannot fall! And against such background the
intellect has to develop! A healthy and joyful way
of life in harmony with nature, giving love to
others — this is how souls have to be educated!
Development of cordial love toward every God’s
creation can help children on the spiritual Path!
Forest schools are the possibility for creating
spiritual environment for children’s growth!”
“How can one help those who turn
away from love?”
“They have many lives ahead… God’s
help comes to those who seek how to help others.”
