Why is the name of this composite book “Mystifying Russian soul”? Let’s apply to Wikipedia: “The concept arouse in the second part of the 19th century due to a philosophy of the leading Russian writers such as Dostoevsky and Tolstoy. In their popular in Europe books not ethic, but aesthetic principles as well as not entertaining, but moral needs are playing the dominant role. “Spirit” of such writings turned into “Soul” and lead to a concept “Mystifying Russian soul” popular abroad. Except Dostoyevsky and Tolstoy almost all the writers who became classics of Russian and world literature took part in this process. The composite book “Mystifying Russian soul” contains more than twenty their novels, tales, plays and poems.

Transcendental Leadership

The Ego is just a passport but it is not our Soul. The Soul needs the passport to navigate this world. When our Ego is synchronous, our passport gives us a world level credential for sanctuary...we can travel anywhere.

As we strive for good, through our fear and sense of lack, we inadvertently give power to a coalition that infuses cultures in a philosophy of eternal conflict and domination as a means of preserving civic order, that is controlled by promises of greater good while guiding policies and actions protect and produces a world of haves and have-nots. The deeper impulse of the Soul to thrive and transform itself into loving is an eternal force and is unstoppable in the long run. Though ominous, these times embody a great opportunity for humanity to change the narrative. To do so we need to rise above the inversion layer of shadows into transcendent realms and resources. Prophecy portends a “new day and new dawn.” We are that promise. We live in a time that invites a vision for humanity and leadership based on integrity and spiritual awakening. Remember. As we incarnate into the human condition, the most essential and most forgotten element of life for each of us is that we are the ones that bring love. In our first breath, we encounter an overwhelming challenge to identify with the world in which we find ourselves and forget the world of love from whence we came. I invite you to engage in an exploration of Self that is continuous and reveals the truth of life without fear, inspired by Soul and guided by love. Consider perhaps that the promise of a “new day and new dawn” refers simply to a change of heart. Transcendental Leadership occurs when we connect to our visionary nature, awaken to an integral perspective, and apply our greater virtue and spiritual depth in response to the challenges and callings of life.

This psychologically penetrating revisionist account of the life and rule of Rusia's 18th-century Tsar-reformer develops an important theme - that is, what happens when the drive for "progress" is linked to an autocratic, expansionist impulse rather than to a larger goal of human emancipation? And, what has been the price of power - both for Peter and for Russia?
