Cinema

Chapter from the book  “How God Can Be Cognized. Book 2. Autobiographies of the Disciples of God”  — Anna Zubkova.

Cinema played a very important role in my life.

My grandmother (the second, not the one, whom I have already mentioned) worked at the “Lenfilm” as an artist since the foundation of that cinema studio. And there was no question of choosing a profession for me.

Through the cinema, I learned a lot. After all, every new film is — a new crew, new world of images, new expedition, new cities, people… And every person, whether he/she is a famous actor or a crowd-scene participant, when he/she enters a wardrobe, takes off part of his or her personal image along with clothes — then it gets better to see his/her substance.

I have worked with many “stars” of Russian and foreign cinema and had a possibility to observe them, at the top of their fame, from the side. Also, I could see that happiness or unhappiness did not depend on their fame and fortune, for the achievement of which many are willing to spend their entire lives. But everything is determined by moral principles and spiritual qualities of man.

I worked on joint projects with the French and British, Japanese and Americans — and I knew that people in the world differ from each other, first of all, not by their language and nationality. And I was happy to meet in some people the desire and ability to work creatively, caring for others, and so on — and watched with sadness the arrogance and selfishness of others … And it is also not dependent on the halo of glory, wealth and nationality…

Perhaps, no other job would have allowed me to cognize so close such a huge variety of human souls and life situations.

… And also, there, in the movie studio, God gave me the chance to realize my childhood dreams… For example, I was trying on clothes in front of a luxury mirror various times and in various nations (to see how they are sewn). I traveled in a luxurious carriage (on the set), slept in palaces (in the brief intervals between shots — on the floor on a pile of clothing), sailed on the “ancient” sailing ships on the sea and so on.

It is exactly here that happened my first meeting with Vladimir Antonov, and it so drastically changed my life.

… Once, during a day when Vladimir was explaining the work with Kundalini to me and Maria, he asked, inter alia: would you like to quit filming the useless rubbish for humanity — and start making spiritual films?

Of course, I wanted to Maria and I even had begun to think: where would we find the director, operator, money for the project?

We even tried to think of the scenario; Maria asked God to dictate it and took the pen… That’s what came out of it:

 

Predestination can not be understood,

While hearts are blind and deaf,

Manage to assemble the mosaic:

The truth is divided into rumors.


Do not forget, when you arrive in the world of matter:

The whole world of Creation — it is an illusion!

Do not take away your root from the Infinity,

When you arrive into this world!


With the blinding whiteness of Fire

Burn the shackles of the material burden!

With look-jet from the other side of “Mirror”

You will pierce the space and time!


Look forward both in the depth and breadth:

There are no boundaries from behind “the looking-glass”!

To look only at the corporeal world —

This does not have sense!


Reality is there, where only He exists,

And there is no bound for His Love!

Understand that we exist only in Him —

Either we have bodies or not! *


We initially thought that it was — the recommendation “to quit” filming at all. And Maria and I rushed, struggling to implement this new “scenario”. But God had other plans. We just then were proposed and asked to always keep Him, God, in the foreground in Life. And the cinema — let it become one of the mechanisms of service to Him!

… When the idea to shoot places of power and meditations had appeared, I could not even imagine how great it would be!…

And so, video camera, tripod, microphone, cassette tapes were bought… And — the first shootings started…

Knowing by experiences, that the work of a two-hour movie in a professional studio usually takes about a year, and after that about a year for the film editing… And during all this time people receive a salary…

It took us half a year to film and edits three four-hour series of the movie “Places of Power”…

Maria and I were involved in this more than anyone else. We worked on it almost twenty-four hours a day: for God did not cancel those paces of life for us that He set from the beginning, and they were just accelerating. We did not have a computer yet and if Vladimir did not like just one frame at the beginning of a four-hour tape, we had to reedit the entire film again, from the very beginning, because there was no other way to make changes…

And yet — it was turning out great! The videography transfers meditative states and states of places of power surprisingly well. The beauty of captured pictures of nature heightened even more the effect.

And God continued to teach us to communicate with Him in the affairs of serving for Him — even when we were editing films! For example, when we were trying to choose the music for the film, it was unsuccessful over and over again… But then, for example, Lao would come — and the music, which “accidentally” was turned on, suddenly was precisely laying on the image, coinciding with the duration up to the second…

Sathya Sai Baba offered such comparison: God — is like an all-powerful film Director in His earthly staging… [16]

And we were studying to be assistants of this Great Director.
