Question: Olga writes: “I read somewhere or heard from you that the embryo in the womb sees its entire life from the beginning to the end. Is that so? And if so, then why does it lose these abilities later?”
Answer: This refers to a spiritual embryo, not to an ordinary one. Our embryo is no different than the embryo of animals. We are born just like animals. And gradually, if we develop, we develop perhaps into decent people and maybe even into spiritual people who feel the Creator.
Question: Let’s say that we develop as a spiritual embryo. So what does it mean that this spiritual embryo sees everything? What does it mean: “everything, from the beginning till the end”?
Answer: How it sees itself: where it is from, what it is, for what purpose. That is, it begins to see its entire path from beginning till end but on a very narrow scale. And it understands why it was born and exists in a spiritual form.
Question: And what is this, this end? What can I see if I am a spiritual embryo?
Answer: Complete adhesion with all souls and with the Creator. That is all. It is an ascent to the quality of bestowal, the quality of love, the quality of absolute connection with everyone, when the feeling of time, movement, that is, this whole world, ceases to be felt.
Question: At what point does a person become a spiritual embryo?
Answer: When one stops thinking about oneself.

Question: Is it possible for a soul to be reborn during one lifetime? Can the soul die and be reborn in the same body?
Answer: The soul is not born and does not die. It is immortal because it is the attribute of bestowal.
So, you do not need to worry about what will happen with your soul. It can of course develop only if you develop it. Nothing else happens to it. It is an eternal entity that is in each of us and between us, and we need to simply reveal it to ourselves.

Question: What benefits does a person who has a screen bring to society? Does his ability not to think about himself somehow affect other people? Or are these purely internal calculations and no one knows about it?
Answer: Indeed, people may be completely unaware of the presence of the screen because they do not have such property and do not feel spirituality. This is first.
Question: And if he is already in a group of like-minded people and he rises above his egoism there, is this somehow felt by those who study with him?
Answer: No. Why? This can only spoil them. Working with the screen is an individual interaction of a person with the Creator.

Question: “How should one relate to fortune tellers? I have been told things that it is better not to repeat. Should I believe them or not? And if yes, how can I avoid what they predict for me? I believe you. I do not want to believe them.” Sergei.
Answer: You understand that a lot of people have the ability to sense the future. I have met such people. I talked about this with my teacher. And he had several such students in his lifetime who came, studied a little, and acquired this sensation of the future.
But I personally did not feel an immediate attraction to them.
Question: What about curiosity? To know what will happen to you, how fate will turn out?
Answer: No. I will tell you frankly, what will happen to me in a week, a month, a year, ten, twenty years—well, so what? I think it is much more interesting to live when you do not know anything. You just do not know anything! It is much more interesting, it is exciting.
And when you know everything, it is like you came to a movie, as we used to do to cinemas, sat down in your chair, and suddenly you find out that you remember this movie perfectly, you have already seen it. All the sharpness is gone.
Question: In other words, it is desirable to live as you say: tomorrow is tomorrow, what will be will be. Everything is in the hands of the upper. And you move along with this current?
Answer: Yes. The best thing is to know nothing and be the master of your life.
To what extent you are the master or not, you will start to understand that this is also pointless. I go forward according to the rules that the Creator has set in order to come to Him. I am getting closer to Him precisely according to the conditions that He has set out for me. And I want nothing else. I do not want to see another iota more! I do not want anything else! I want to be only this: a devoted follower of the Creator.
This is the most beautiful thing that can be! This is a great reward for a person when he can behave like this!
And at the same time, listening to how your future is being slandered, no way! We must come to bestowal from inside-out.
Question: And if around a corner during this journey of, as you call it, surrendering to the Creator terrible things suddenly happen?
Answer: There is nothing terrible or not terrible. It all depends on how you feel about it. If you give yourself to it openly, just like that, you open your soul: whatever is there is there and it is from the Creator; there is nothing terrible.
It is just that everything instantly becomes simple, clear, and soft. What your attitude to the Creator is, that is how you make Him—the Creator. And that is all. And there is the right connection between you.
