Master about himself: “It is difficult to talk about yourself, you can only “see” or feel yourself. Most people don't look where the Master is pointing them. They are interested in his personality and life. And the more status the Master, the more unconditionally they believe him and try to build their lives in relation to him. I will not give food to your mind, a person has only his life, the universal consciousness manifests itself in a unique way in everyone. The Master that you find within yourself is the only one who will give answers to all questions. But those who have revealed it, or those who have found it in themselves, help to find it.
I am eternally grateful to everyone with whom my life has brought me together. I will not name their names and nationalities, we are connected by heart, and they feel it. Any tradition is dead, there is no ideal system, if it existed, everyone only learned from it, but life always “becomes” and changes. There is a certain strategic plan-scheme, but it must be flexible. We are not robots, biomechanics and physiology is a scientific approach. Our body is a unique system that proves again and again that we know nothing about it. We are complex and amazing beings, and from our interaction with each other, the master we seek outside of ourselves is born. You can only convey your own living experience, pointing the right direction and warning about mistakes, but this requires personal contact. This is how development happens. There is no special practice for life, life itself is quite enough, but life from its fullness gives birth through us to something new, unique, and this process is endless. If what you do brings joy to you and those around you, then this is what life wants from you, or rather, what it gives people through you. To follow this current is to unite one's will with the Great Master."
