From Book 5. A SEARCH FOR PROOF
Russia of the future . . . This is a beautiful country where many from our present generation will have a chance to live a happy life.
Russia of the future is a country that will turn the planet's human community toward happiness. I saw a beautiful, flourishing Russia. It was she, Anastasia, who showed me our country's future, and it became absolutely unimportant and insignificant how this ardent, resilient hermit living in the middle of the Siberian taiga was able to travel to other planets, into the future or the past. How she connected with invisible threads the souls of people living in different countries, into a united, exciting impulse to create. What is important is something completely different: the fact that this impulse exists. Does it really matter where she gets so much information of every kind and knowledge about our life? Incomparably more important is the result of this knowledge—the fact that people in different cities who have come in contact with her information are planting cedar allées, that they have started to produce cedar oil, and more and more songs and poems are appearing about the beautiful.
Fantastic! She dreams of something, I write it down, and before you know it, it's come true! Some fantasy! But after all, this fantasy is coming true in real life for all to see. She has dreamed of a beautiful country. Could that really come true, too? It has to. I have to help her somehow.
Calculating and analyzing what Anastasia told and showed me, I became increasingly convinced of the reality of a beautiful future. I believed in it.
I began to believe everything Anastasia said, but I just could not finish writing and publishing the chapter about Russia's future. It didn't belong in the previous book, "Co-Creation." The issuing of this book was held up because of it. I wanted everything said to be sufficiently convincing and real, so that not only I myself but many others as well would believe and begin to act, to create a beautiful future. But I simply could not be completely convincing, due to a few things Anastasia said.
In "Co-Creation," I reported Anastasia's assertion that all the nature that surrounds us is nothing but God's materialized thoughts. If man could understand them just in part, he would not need to spend a lot of effort obtaining food and fertilizing the land, since it itself could restore its own fertility, nor would he have to waste effort on fighting different pests and weeds. His thoughts would be released from everyday problems, and he could take up a matter more central to his existence: the joint creation with God of beautiful worlds. I wanted lots of people to believe what she said. But how could people trust her if all of agro technology—and not only in our country—cannot get along without fertilizers?
Many plants in different countries of the world are busy producing various chemicals to add to the soil. I brought up this question a few times with agricultural scientists, but I always got more or less the same condescending answer. "One could, of course, set up a paradisiacal garden on one hectare of land, but you would have to work in this garden from morning to night. Without adding fertilizers to the soil, there won't be a good harvest. You can't get along without the use of pesticides, either, because many pests will destroy a crop." To the argument Anastasia cited about how everything grows in the taiga without man's assistance, the scientists said, "Let's say it does. But if we are to believe your hermit, then the taiga's program was set directly by God. Man needs more than what grows in the taiga. For example, the taiga has no orchard. Because an orchard requires man's care. It cannot grow itself."
I visited several gardening stores a few times. I stood in the stores and observed many buying various bags of chemicals. I looked at these people and thought they would never believe what Anastasia said, and that meant it made no sense to write about Russia's future. They wouldn't believe in it. They wouldn't believe because this future is linked above all with a new consciousness, a different attitude toward the land and the environment. But there is not a single modern man who could confirm what she said, not a single real-life example confirming her words. In reality, it's just the opposite: everything contradicts her. Plants produce an array of pesticides. Networks of stores sell fertilizers and chemicals. Many engage in scientific research on the earth. The absence of weighty proofs for Anastasia's assertions had such a powerful effect on me that I couldn't write anything at all. So I agreed to go to Innsbruck, Austria. I had a call from a publisher in Germany who said that Leonard Hosheneng, director of the Bioenergetics Institute, had invited me to talk about Anastasia before Europe's leading healers. The institute paid for my travel and stay and was prepared to pay a thousand marks for each hour I spoke. I didn't go there for the money, but rather to search for convincing arguments, understandable to many people, for and against Anastasia's project and her assertions about Russia's future.
Dr. Hosheneng, who had invited me to speak to the healers, himself was a professional physician and well-known hereditary healer. His grandfather had treated the family of the Japanese emperor and many others of high rank. He personally owned, apart from the institute building, several comfortable hotels were many patients stayed who had come from European countries as well as a restaurant, a park, and a few other buildings downtown. He was a millionaire, but despite the impression many Russians have about the way of life of a Western rich man, Leonard, as I learned, did all the important treatment work himself. He saw personally each person who came to see him, as many as fifty a day, and he often worked sixteen hours at a stretch. Only sometimes did he entrust an appointment to . . . a healer from Russia.
I spoke to the healers who had gathered in Innsbruck, realizing that Anastasia interested them above all. I devoted the large part of my speech to telling them about her, and at the end spoke a little about her project, secretly hoping to hear from those gathered confirmation or refutation of her plan for a future Russia. But they neither confirmed nor refuted anything, they just kept asking clarifying questions.
That evening Hosheneng gave a banquet in a restaurant. I would call it simply a dinner. Each person could order whatever he wanted, but everyone was modest, preferring salads, and no one drank alcohol or smoked. I did not order a drink, either, not because I was afraid of looking like a white crow among them, I simply did not feel like having meat or alcohol for some reason. At this dinner we talked about Anastasia again. That was where the phrase was born. I don't remember who uttered it first: "Russia's beautiful future is linked to the Siberian Anastasia." The words were picked up, and they were repeated in various interpretations by the healers from Italy, Germany, and France.
I waited for specifics. Why, at what expense would the beautiful come to be? But no one offered specific proofs. The healers based themselves on their intuition, but I needed proof. Could the earth feed man without special expenditures on its part, merely at the expense of man correctly understanding the thought of a God no one could see?
Returning to Russia, I recalled the words of the European healers, once again, without any particular hope, and attempted to find specific proofs, for which I was prepared to go anywhere. But I did not have to go far. An incredible coincidence, so incredible it seemed as if someone had set it up on purpose, presented not simply theoretical proofs but was a living, real confirmation of Anastasia's words.
What happened was the following.
