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.
