Can an oligarch become a spiritual mentor?
Can a multimillionaire abandon his thirst for power and money and turn his steps towards himself?
Do you know a single super-rich person who stopped creating an empire in the outer world and concentrated on cognition of his outer empire?
Such people exist and the author of the book "A Crossing or the Drop's history" is one of them. Considering that such people are uncommon, their experience and spiritual knowledge become even more valuable as they have stood the test of power and money .
Usually rich people in the prime of their glory write books about earning money or being successful, about things that, to be said in all conscience, are somewhat out of date. "A
Crossing or the Drop's history"
is the first book by Anatoliy. He calls
himself a Drop metaphorically, giving readers a chance to understand that each
of us is a Drop in the Great Ocean called the Universe. The book consists of 5 sections:
- "Universe - Intention - Human"
- "Why a Human?"
- "Who is a Human?"
- "How is a Human?"
In the last section the author recalls the lives of such spiritual mentors as Krishna, Buddha, Jesus and others, reconsidering their heritage.
The main idea of the book corresponds to a
famous phrase: "Nothing is as easy as it looks". According to the
author of this book, our notion about the human being, about the Earth and the
Universe is oversimplified. Human sense organs can perceive a restricted
spectrum of external signals, that is why people believe that the world meets
their expectations. Our audible range is from 20 to 20,000 Hz, luminous
spectrum is also narrowed for our sight, and so on. At the same time there is a
riot of light energy, smells and feelings beyond the limits of our perception.
This obvious observation can be followed by the
logical question - can your own perception be broadened and how?
And this question is not idle at all. The
matter is that the nature endowed human being with definite potential. In
modern phraseology it means that we can use a range of options from the first
minutes of our life: we can breathe, swallow food, move our hands, feet and the
whole body, differentiate colours, smells, tastes and many other things.
Nearly all the people truly believe that the
skills given at the moment of their birth are exhaustive and they could not
achieve major triumph. Anatoliy Obraztsov suggests in his book that people can
broaden their abilities by broadening their mind. Only in this case a person
develops "extra-options" in themselves and does it on their own by
achieving a deeper understanding of themselves, their inner world, their ego.
People receive evidence based on their own experience that ego is a set of our
self-images, it is an abstraction, so it... does not actually exist!
The main feature of all the books by Anatoliy
Obraztsov is their simplicity. The author expresses and analyses daring ideas
without affectedness and euphoria common in such cases, but there is always a
light irony and sincerity in his parables.
And the key point is that the author
appreciates his own spiritual experience at most. It does not require any
arguments, disputes or discussions. When you gain your internal spiritual
experience there is no need to prove anything to anyone else, because you have
the Knowledge. You experienced it.

To sum it up, I would like to say that I found this book very interesting and pithy. It leaves an extraordinary warm feeling after reading and
impression. It is easily read but, at the same time, such deep issues are
touched upon that each of them deserves another book.
