“I need to speak to you, Vladimir, about the conditions under which
you would be able to get your money from banks when you have a lot
in your account”.
“Oh, it's interesting! Go ahead, Anastasia, tell me, it's a pleasant
procedure” I remarked.
Though the next moment the words I heard made
me burst out... It's unbelievable! Just read and be my judge...
“Whenever you decide that you need to get money
from your bank account you should do the following procedure:
“First of all, three days before going to a bank to get your money
you should not drink alcohol. When you arrive at the bank, the bank
senior official is supposed to carry out the inspection, in
accordance with this condition, using an instrument specially
designed for this purpose, in the presence of not less than two
witnesses. As soon as you are through with the above mentioned
procedure you are ready to start with a second one.
You should drop curtseys not less than nine times in front of the
bank senior official and those two witnesses present there...”.
When the sense of these conditions had reached my consciousness,
though I would rather say the senselessness.
I jumped up and she
stood up too. I could not believe what heard and asked again,
they will check me regarding the presence of alcohol and after that
I am supposed to drop curtseys in the presence of witnesses not less
than nine times, am I right?”
“Exactly”, was her reply, “for each drop they can give you a sum of
money not more than one million in your currency in accordance with
the up-to-date value”.
I was overwhelmed with feelings of madness, anger and frustration.
“Why have you said this? Just tell me why? I was || so happy I
trusted you. I have even started to believe that you are right on
many things, that there is logic in your conclusions. But you... Do
you realize that men do not curtsey? They bow. Only women curtsey.
Now I am absolutely convinced that you are a schizophrenic, a forest
fool, a crazy one. You have crossed over by your last statement. It
is absolutely senseless and the bottom line is there is no logic in
it at all. You know what, it is not only my personal opinion. Any
clear thinking man can prove it to you. Ha... Maybe you would like
me to put these conditions of yours down into the book you want me
“Yes, I would like you to do it”.
“Well, well, I am quite sure now that you are absolutely not in your
right mind. Are you going to write a special instruction or maybe an
edict for banks?”
“No, I am not. They will read the book and all of them will act
accordingly. Otherwise they will face bankruptcy”
“Oh, God!!! I can't believe that I am still listening to this
creature the for third day in a row! Maybe you would like the senior
officials to drop curtseys also together with me in the presence of
“It would be a good idea for him to behave exactly the way you will.
It would be of great use for all of them though I did not put them
on these kinds of terms as I have done in your case”.
“Does it mean that you have demonstrated such favor only for me? Do
you have any idea what kind of a laughing stock you have made of me?
Now anyone can see what could result if one is loved by a crazy
hermit. Just remember, nothing will come out of your tricks. Not a
single bank will ever agree to serve me under these kinds of terms.
It does not matter how much you try to model your situations. Look
at her! She is lost in her daydreams. I tell you, right here, where
you belong, you can drop curtseys as much as you like”.
“The banks will agree and, even without your consent, will open
accounts for you, though I should add, only those which are willing
to work honestly. Moreover, people will trust them and become their
customers”, continued Anastasia holding her ground.
Anger and irritation were accumulating in me more and more. I was
becoming rude and nasty, to say the least.
She was standing leaning
her back against a tree trunk, her head slightly bent forward, one
hand was pressed to her chest with the other one which raised up as
she was waving slightly. I recognized that gesture. She used to do
did it when she was trying to calm down the environment. She was
protecting me that way, so I would not get scared and I realized why
she was calming down at that time...
Any rudeness or offensive word
directed towards Anastasia was hurting her like a whip, making her
I shut my mouth, sat down on the grass again turning my back to
Anastasia. I made a decision that I would calm down, then go to the
shore and never speak to her again.
That was why when I heard her
speaking behind my back I was very surprised as there was no outrage
or reproach in the tone of her voice.
“Don't get me wrong, Vladimir, all bad things which are happening to
man are being attracted by man. This happens only when he is
violating the laws of spirituality and losing contact with Nature.
The dark forces are trying to mislead man's attention by the
momentary attractiveness of your technocratic being. To make you
forget the simple truth and the commandments which were set forth
for humankind long ago through the Bible. They do succeed very
often. One of man's mortal sins is arrogance and a great majority of
people are prone to it. Right now I am not going to speak about the
great baneful influence of this sin on man. If you would like to
learn more about this subject when you come back home you will be
able to understand it yourself or with the help of enlightened
people who will come into your life.
Right now I have to say only that the dark forces, as opposed to the
light ones, are using every moment in trying to cultivate sin so it
could stay with man and the most important instrument of their
efforts is money. Actually they invented money and now money exists
as a high voltage zone. The dark forces are very proud of their
invention. They even think that they are stronger than the lights
just because they had managed to think up money. The great
opposition has been lasting for thousands of years and man is in the
center of it.
I don't want you to be held liable for this sin since I do
understand that nobody can manage to overcome it. All kinds of
explanations which have been given to humankind have not worked out,
as man has not recognized the right way to resist this sin. You too
would not be able to realize it naturally by yourself. I would like
to help you to get rid of this mortal danger of spirit spoiling and
that was why I had thought up especially for you a special situation
in which this mechanism of the dark forces looks as if it breaks
down and moreover it works quite the contrary, it eradicates the
That's why they had become so mad at me. Their anger moved into you
and that was why you started to shout at me using insulting words
and expressions. They wanted me to get angry at you but I'll never
do that. I've realized that my invention had just hit the mark and
now it is quite evident to me that it is possible to break their
perfectly adjusted mechanisms. These were working without a hitch
for millennia. It was my first experience till now. I have done it
only for you but I shall also think up something for other people...
Well, what's wrong if you drink less of this intoxicating potion and
not become an arrogant and obstinate person? What has made you so
excited ? Surely it was the arrogance which had leaped inside you”.
She became quiet and I became thoughtful.
It was unbelievable and absolutely extraordinary or better to say a
Whatever one can call this squatting or curtseys
at banks, which her brain could invent.
“Anyhow her mind has logged
a very deep meaning into it and, to tell the truth, there could be a
logic to it... Of course, it requires one to take a closer look at
it”, I thought to myself.
All kinds of ill feelings towards Anastasia were gone. They were
replaced by a feeling of vague guilt though I did not apologize at
I only turned towards her seeking peace.
