For something to mature, be it a fruit or man, it is necessary that there be the influence of two Forces, which can be referred to as Light and Darkness. Light affects the maturing object from above, and Darkness — from below and from the sides. Maturation factors may also be named as Rod and Nature, Fire and Water, Day and Night, Father and Mother, depending on what is being subjected to maturation. The higher aspect enhances the essence, which is the content of the maturing being, whereas the lower aspect enhances its form. In this case, the essence is ignited, and the form is saturated. In a mature object, the essence dominates the form, while in its opposite — immaturity — the form dominates the essence.
Meaning is the highest force that drives a conscious person to continue to live, act, build relationships, raise children, produce something for other people, accumulate possessions and so forth. The Russian word “smysl” (“meaning”) consists of the sounds “s”, “m”, “s”, and “l”. “Smysl” can be broken down into Russian “s” and “mysl’”, meaning “with thought”. “М” (m) stands for “matter”, which receives and carries something within itself. L — El — means “higher”, “from a higher world” or “celestial”. The combination of these sounds leads us to conclude that “smysl” (“meaning”) is a certain higher entity, encased in several sheaths which carry and store it. (It is interesting to note that “smysl” shares the combination of letters “sms” with the abbreviation SMS — short message service.) To understand the meaning is to gain the experience of the entity from a higher reality and receive a message from it.
Measure is a reference value used for measuring something. The root of this word is also present in the Russian “zameret” (“to freeze”) or “zamerzaniye” (“freezing”), which demonstrates the qualities of stability and fixedness inherent in this concept. It is also displayed in the expressions “precautionary measure” or “take measures”, essentially meaning a stable and definite means of solving one problem or another. Thus, Measure is something stable and specific, a reference value for measurement, contrast or comparison.
Meditation is the process of directing attention to subtle phenomena that can be felt physically, to live through the experience of what the meditator would like to know. Sensations themselves can be called subtle forces that shape our lives. Directing attention to one or another sensation awakens the corresponding force to a greater degree and, thus, strengthens a certain aspect of life. In the subtle world of sensations, there are no boundaries of the body, space and time, so with the help of meditation, it is possible to gain an experience of what can exist in different realities (worlds), as well as in the past, present or future.
A mission is one’s higher purpose. The concept is derived from Latin “missio” (“mail, a message”), Spanish “mesa” (“a table, a sacrificial meal”), and Arabic “messiah” (“the anointed” with olive oil, denoting God’s message). The dove Noah sent for exploration brought in its beak an oil leaf as a sign that God had forgiven people, and the water abated and made life on land possible. Therefore, a mission is a message from God in the form of good, which is like consecrated food. The message brings God’s forgiveness and blessing. To have a mission means to know what you are doing for the sake of what is the Highest for you. Man can act out of different levels of his being: desires, or wishes, aims, meaning, or a mission, each of which is projected on the body and indicates one of the five levels of LiveDevice: the pelvis, the abdomen, the chest, the head, and the space above the head — where the mission comes from.
Money is a means of exchanging goods and services, and a measure of their value. In other words, money is a unit equivalent to a commodity or a service. To understand the etymology of Russian “den’gi” (“money”), we can divide the word into the two syllables — “den’” and “gi”. We cannot deny that the sound of words of a language spoken by people influences them. “Dengi” (“money”) begins with “den’” (“day”), which is a time that make us feel light and good and which is light created by God. The three most similar sounding ancient words “dengi”, “tenge”, “denge” and “den’ga” derived from “Tengri” — the Heaven, or the Lord. Thus, the etymology of “den’gi” (“money”) is the light of Heaven, the good of the Lord. For as long as money was made of gold, its name matched its essence, gold being an equivalent of light in the world of dense matter. But since money became paper or electronic, it has turned into mere numbers. Arabic “sifr” means “empty, zero”. A private company producing money, essentially emptiness, has become the owner of all the world resources and labour simply because it can exchange this emptiness for everything that exists in this world. The modern money has ceased to match its original meaning and no longer fulfils the function of connecting us with the Heaven. Money is now vigorously connecting people with the Earth, completely subordinating their lives and replacing the Lord with itself.
