This is the fifth in the phenomenally inspiring Anastasia books. In this book Anastasia reveals the idyllic society that existed before the advent of the major religions that destroyed the spiritual free thinking society that was present in most parts of the world. These times were then called pagan and all records of their true nature were destroyed.

Our True Nature Sept. 3 2010
By Bani Sodermark - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book completes a certain phase in the ongoing communication between Vladimir Megre and Anastasia. This phase was begun in "The Space of Love", in which Vladimir recounts the story of his second visit to the taiga, in order to see his then one year old son. Books three, four and five, form a series within the Ringing Cedars of Russia series. The conversations and events so far, steer clear of actual political and historical people or events. That is done in progressive degrees in the later books of the Series (some of which I have yet to read).

As the second book in the Ringing Cedars series deals with the grounding of the Anastasia encounter (Vladimir tells the story of his experience of writing the first book), so also this book describes how the predictions and prophecies in this ongoing conversation were being fulfilled in the Russia of today. He describes his own musings around these conversations, especially about her ideas on people working their own small plots of land (dachas). There is a whole chapter on the Auroville experiment in India, an experiment that did not survive, and how the pitfalls that were encountered there, could be avoided in the development of the upcoming Russia of today. Later, Anastasia progresses him to a possible future of their country, where people from all over the world, come to imbibe the benefits of the Russian way of life. Vladimir resolves to do all he can to realize this particular vision of his country. He writes a strong letter to the President, Vladimir Putin (the letter also forms the content for a whole chapter) and addresses conferences on the Anastasia series on these issues. These conferences have had attendances of hundreds of delegates from all over the erstwhile Soviet Union, and answers to some of their common misgivings and questions on the viability of Anastasia's way of life, are also given in this book.

Later, Anastasia shows Vladimir, a picture of the Moscow of the future. She also progresses him to a possible future of St. Petersburg, where children of the future have taken the task of restructuring the city, on themselves. A strong case is made for the lost powers of "Man" in today's civilized world and how these lost abilities are being reawakened, especially, by the more developed children of today.

Vladimir also provides a picture of the kind of reception received by the Anastasia material in Russia. One very positive response is from a very old and erudite professor, who has lived alone for decades. It is clear that he, for one, takes these ideas to his heart and adapts them in his own life, besides, calling himself by the appellation of "Anastasia's foot soldier":

On the other hand, there have also been many other very scurrilous campaigns on Vladimir, which, apart from questioning Vladimir's integrity, make insinuations on Anastasia's very existence, among other accusations. One such attempt, which truly disturbs Vladimir's psychic balance, is dealt with in detail. Anastasia manages to save him from a life threatening encounter in the nick of time. When Vladimir is effusive in his thanks, likening her to a Goddess, worthy of worship, Anastasia shrinks from the very idea, asserting her identity only as an equal and desiring only to be accepted as such. Personally, I think that this attitude is the reason behind the power of the Anastasia material, her steadfast refusal to build a cult around her person, her adamant refusal to leave her glade in the taiga and appear in the public eye.. This episode is, as I see it, holds the key to our real nature as "Man", and also, I assume, the reason for the unusual title "Who are We?"

Vladimir's and Anastasia's dialogues promote a way of life that is not easy to comprehend for most of us rooted in the frenetic rat race of an urban lifestyle. It is in this book that the contrast between our lifestyles and Anastasia's appears starker than ever. We are shown, clearer than in the earlier books, exactly where our paths and Anastasia's started to diverge and how each of us, not knowing the power and glory of our genetic heritage as 'Man', allowed ourselves to be led astray. This book, more than ever, propagates the idea of a feasible way of returning to Nature and recovering our pristine essence without giving up too many of our material comforts.

I recommend this book, as all its predecessors in the Ringing Cedars of Russia series, warmly to all.

Concerns Dec 15 2011
By D Train - Published on
Format: Paperback
I am reading this series out loud with my partner, who is a huge Anastasia fan. Personally I have concerns with what I'm reading, especially in this fifth book in the series. My concerns center around a theme that I have picked up several times in the series, namely that all the spiritual teachings in history so far have only served to lead human beings away from the truth (otherwise, wouldn't we be more enlightened than we are?), and that Anastasia is this extraordinary being who is finally bringing the truth that will set us free, where everyone else, including Buddha, Christ, etc., have failed.

This stance, if indeed it is an accurate summary of what is being put forward, is, for me, nonsensical at best, and misleading at worst. It does not seem to recognize what Steiner, the preeminent Western clairvoyant researcher, and many others have humbly acknowledged, namely that the Christ event, or what Steiner calls the "Mystery of Golgotha," is the key event in human evolution. For this is the moment when the Godhead united itself, for the first time through death and therewith into all regions of the cosmos, with humanity for eternity. This event provides the possibility, indeed the promise, that atonement of the human race is a certainty. As Jesus said after the resurrection,

"To you (the masters of Persia) I come, the first of all the race to be transmuted to the image of the AM. What I have done, all men will do; and what I am, all men will be."

He repeats this final assurance to the masters of Egypt: "You know that all my life was one great drama for the sons of men; a pattern for the sons of men. I lived to show the possibilities of man. What I have done all men can do, and what I am all men shall be."

The entire Course In Miracles is a scribed, modern "bhagavad gita," or song of God, to humanity from the risen Christ Jesus describing in detail what he assures us is a "required course" to graduate, or wake up, from the current nightmare most of us are experiencing to a happy dream from which true awakening, or enlightenment, will flow naturally. The time we take this course is up to our own free will, but not the content of the course.

Now of course one could say that believing that the Christ event is the key event in human evolution, etc., is just as dogmatic as Vladimir Megre claiming that Anastasia is the savior where all other teachers of the human race have failed. This is precisely where my concern has been heightened in reading "Who Are We?" In the chapter of "Questions and Answers" Megre callously puts down the Hare Krishna sisters and brothers, claiming that their spiritual practice is hogwash, calling them names, etc. This is what differentiates what I am reading in "Who Are We?" from the spiritual teachings that I consider bona fide: a bona fide teaching does not put another practice down.

The Course In Miracles in its inclusiveness and universality says, "(The Teachers of God) come from all over the world. They come from all religions and from no religion. They are the ones who have answered. The Call is universal. It goes on all the time everywhere. It calls for teachers to speak for It and redeem the world. Many hear It, but few will answer. Yet it is all a matter of time. Everyone will answer in the end, but the end can be a long, long way off. It is because of this that the plan of the teachers was established. Their function is to save time. Each one begins as a single light, but with the Call at its center it is a light that cannot be limited. And each one saves a thousand years of time as the world judges it. To the Call Itself time has no meaning.

"There is a course for every teacher of God. The form of the course varies greatly. So do the particular teaching aids involved. But the content of the course never changes. Its central theme is always, 'God's Son is guiltless, and in his innocence is his salvation.' It can be taught by actions or thoughts; in words or soundlessly; in any language or in no language; in any place or time or manner. It does not matter who the teacher was before he heard the Call. He has become a savior by his answering. He has seen someone else as himself. He has therefore found his own salvation and the salvation of the world. In his rebirth is the world reborn.

"This is a manual for a special curriculum, intended for teachers of a special form of the universal course. There are many thousands of other forms, all with the same outcome. They merely save time..."

A teaching with truth as its core does not need to put others down to make itself right. Of course, this could just be Megre's own woundedness coming out, just as Paul's woundedness profoundly affected the message of the Christ that the world received for nearly 1,900 years, until recently, and made the "good news" of the first human being to arise to his full power and even conquer death as a Christianity that by all accounts has done much harm in the world. I would hope that Megre does not taint Anastasia's beautiful message with his own form of bigotry, similar to Paul's.

Does Anastasia also feel that the Hare Krishnas are idiots, as Megre feels? Does she really believe that hers is the only true teaching in the history of the world? Does she acknowledge the Christ event? These are important, and as yet unanswered, questions for me.
