Sensei of Shambala. Book III
It is exactly your thought that is the initial cause of creating your life circumstances.
“…for people aspiring to the spiritual, there happens one and the same story: with honor and dignity, going through years of their life, retaining love for God through twists and turns of existence, they find unknown divine power, soulful gratification, and inner peace. They fear not Life; nor do they fear Death. For Life to them is but a temporary refuge for Soul; for Death to them is the Door to everlasting life, into the world of God. And the point is that spiritual people not only believe: they know about realities of the higher world. While those, who find comfort in thought about existence, being in the system of deceit, are not even able to believe, for not only they cannot see true reality behind the shroud of existence, but they cannot even adequately evaluate their own lives.

But man often perceives Reflected Light as Emitted one. Blinded by it, he thirsts for Truth, not understanding that it is merely a distortion of it. And only a true Eye is able to behold the essence!”

Besides Sensei's worldview, one more strong opinion is put on the scale of youngsters’ personal choice. Who the reader himself chooses – that is what the book's plot is about.

- Just look at how this world is organized. It is ruled by a small group of people, ‘powers that be’, who make billions of people work for them. Do you think these ‘powers that be’ trust television or newspapers? Of course not, because in fact they are the makers of those events that you see, for everything occurs according to their scenario in order to hold in continuous awe and servility their employees – that is, yourselves
