On the Other Side of the Material World/“Theory of Making Water”
“Theory of Making Water”
Before the station, Vladimir suddenly drew my attention to the fact that I made water very infrequently. All the others went into the bushes for this quite often, but I almost never did. And on this occasion he gave me a lecture, telling me to write down the title: “The Theory of Making Water”:
“Making Water has to be divided into:
“Obligatory — and facultative (i.e. optional, individual) ones.
“Obligatory are accomplished before the meditative work, for example, before a long journey and before bedtime. Scrupulous execution of obligatory making water teaches people to live on the principle ‘it must be done!’, rather than on ‘I want to!’ or ‘I don’t want to!’. The spiritual warrior must live only on the first principle. One, who does not master the right practice of making water, it can be said about such a person that he or she did not already learn how to mark strategically their own path in life.
“A bladder which is not emptied completely distracts the indriyas of the mind, acting like an uncomfortable garment contracting the body. And one cannot feel free and fully love God, if declining to water, according to the presented rule!”
All this was pronounced with a light playful pathos, while maintaining a serious expression on his face. And all the others listened, extending from their anahatas, being delighted with Vladimir’s speech.
Any interaction between the members of Vladimir’s company was always on this emotional background — open, light-loving, saturated with unobtrusive care for each other, and now — the same was done for me too.
Here there was also much joking and laughing always — even in the rigorous conditions of life; in both material and political aspects.
I was told that, in the past, one of Vladimir’s themes of jokes often were, as he called it, “playing the religion” of adults — in those supposedly “spiritual” schools, where the real work which God expects from us, is replaced by the selling of specific mantras and taking new foreign names, also where special “monk” clothing or hairstyles are used.
Laughing at all such “plays of religion”, he began to call himself among friends — Purrer: according to the invented by him “mantra of feline bliss” “Purr!”.
Katya, laughing, once said that this name fitted him very well: he is really the Purrer! Because however difficult it is, he only “purrs” a few times to cleanse and align the energies in the body and in the “cocoon” — and dives with the consciousness into God’s Consciousness. And there — the Bliss! And he presents this Bliss to others.
God is in him, he is in God. He has realized this.

At some point I began to feel that my head started to break up slowly; even to move it became painful. I immediately began to blame myself: thinking that I worked poorly and generally contrived — in such a short period of this embodiment — to neglect myself so inexcusably!
But Vladimir approached and began to explain that after such healing practices, as were today’s, the existing health problems could get initially acute — before they vanish.
I confirmed to him my headache, and sighed with relief: it means that it is probably a positive sign.
At night I found it very difficult to fall asleep because of my headache, as well as the desire to cleanse immediately my upper “bubble of perception”. And now the best thing, in my opinion, that I could do was… to repent. I went over in my memory again all the injuries, both to myself and those caused to others by me, all my claims and accusations, all the desires which were directed against the principle of love and, accordingly, brought only pain and disappointment. I tried again and again to go through those situations — in the right emotional state… Then I re-read books, tried to speak with the Holy Spirit, to listen to God’s answers — as long as I felt no fatigue. And only then I could fall asleep.
