December 07, 2013 Live Journal "How to save the planet Earth, civilization, oneself" LJ BP-21: My spiritual path. Part 17. Following back to Belovezhskaya Pushcha

In the last text I wrote about my prophetic dream about the transition period when the International public campaign to protect Belovezhskaya Pushcha was successfully finished and I had to work for a few years at the lowest "post qualification" until the conditions for something qualitatively new are ripen. There I also described my cooperation in the international program of FSC ecological forest certification (Forest Stewardship Council).
In August of the last (2012) year, thanks to FSC forest certification, I had my first official meeting with the top-managers of the National Park "Belovezhskaya Pushcha". The last meeting was in 2001 when I was fired from the National Park for refusing to perform anti-ecological and illegal orders by former director. It is especially necessary to note here that the meeting took place on an equal footing, which is very important both for a new concept of the transformation of Belovezhskaya Pushcha into the Center for Spiritual Revival and Enlightenment promoted by me and for me personally.
Former director Nikolai Bambiza was fired from the National Park in January of 2011. After that, I wrote an open letter to the President of Belarus … Read more in Russian or use a special (web)software (for example, "Translate-Google") to translate the text http://bp21.livejournal.com/111027.html

December 02, 2013 Live Journal "How to save the planet Earth, civilization, oneself" LJ BP-21: My spiritual path. Part 16. Test for a good sense and truth

In May 2009, I had a prophetic dream, the second most important one in my life. (The main prophetic dream, with access to the Spiritual world and meeting with Those who gave permission me to carry the spiritual knowledge to people, was 6 months prior to this, on the eve of the New Year, 12.30.2008 .) At this time, there was no transition to "Their". Meeting in the dream with Those who had been in a form of the former director of Belovezhskaya Pushcha, deceased not so long ago, took place at "Hi" territory (in Pushcha). I was told that a new high position and a new responsible job in the National Park will be given to me, which do not exist yet there. And because now there is no job yet suitable for my qualification, I was suggested to temporarily work at the lowest position – forest range.
Waking up, I could not understand what it meant. Definitely, it was said in the dream as allegory. Only six months later, in the context of synchronicity of events, the realization came that the new responsible job is to create a Center of Spiritual Revival and Enlightenment in Belovezhskaya Pushcha. In late 2009, during the celebration of the so-called 600th anniversary since the establishment of "strictly protected" status in the Bialowieza Forest ("strictly protected" is in quotes by me because of the official falsification of this notion, the author's note), Head of State Alexander Lukashenko was finally ...

It will focus here on the important and interesting things which are connected with my spiritual path and spiritual experience.
It would be appropriate to start with an event in which I was able to qualitatively change the point of perception and go through boundary (barrier) which separates the consciousness of the ordinary wakefulness (ordinary perception) from the consciousness of the high awakened state (enlightenment, Samadhi). It was a paradoxical and contradictory experience of my life. Losing some physical (bodily) part of me, I bought a new quality – spiritual. That's the paradox. And I still do not know in my case whether it could be the latter without the former. It could be theoretically. But practically...? It is easy to talk and theorize, when it happened and have lived.
I earlier described in detail this experience. Here I repeat only the most important things.

In 2009, after an 8-year battle of the Belarusian and international communities for the strict preservation of Belovezhskaya Pushcha, it finally became known that the goal of the conservationists will be achieved. It was confirmed at the highest governmental level at the celebration of the 600th anniversary of the first environmental act in Bialowieza Forest that Belovezhskaya Pushcha will soon be reserved in its highest strictly protected status. Thus, the task I gave most of my time and efforts for all these 8 years was performed..
In this regard, the international public campaign to protect Belovezhskaya Pushcha was completed and in 2010 the issue about my future job and business was getting topical. At that time I met local promising farmer Ivan P. who offered me to take a position of beekeeper. He created the farm that specializes in growing berries (especially raspberries). He dreamed of a center of organic agriculture, simultaneously aligning it with the base of tourism (a hotel, guest houses, a restaurant) and a center for environmental education and ethnography. My experience in this field and environmental knowledge was just well for this topic. Also, I gave him my new idea of spiritual rebirth and recovery based on the Bialowieza Forest, which was supported by him and logically complemented his plans.
