Of course, all the most valuable things are in the knowledge that we need today.
And you will be surprised that all this knowledge has not gone anywhere, as it is imprinted in our language and in our traditions.
We analyze the "images".
"Spinning of life" - fate spins the thread of life for us, it can be interrupted, and then a person appears for judgment, and "Sudyasudba" shows us how we will pass it along the thread.
Our ancestors believed in reincarnation, that we return to earth many times, helping each other to pass all the tests, solve all the problems, and our FAMILY plays an important role here.
It is to the judgment of a kind that a person first gets after death, climbing up a thread, being responsible for his deeds both to the "Motherland" and to the "Fatherland".
Now, if you pay attention to the icons of the Mother of God, you will see in the left corner of the MR, at all, veiled or explicitly, but at all. And has anyone ever wondered why there are so many images of the Mother of God, and why Russians stood under her "miraculous" images when our homeland was in danger? I dare to make my guess: each city, region, region painted its Mother of God, or rather, according to the old faith, its "Mother Motherland", and therefore wrote abbreviated MR in the left corner, she is the defender of the lands and the people inhabiting this land. "Otcheotechetvo" is power, it is order, standing up for the Fatherland, we stand up for our way of life.
Perhaps here lies the answer to the opinion that all soldiers, and after all they stand up for their homeland, go to heaven. (subject for reflection)
"On the floor" above - "The Queen of Heaven - Chresto Yin" and "The King of Heaven - Chresto Yang", such expressions have remained in our language, and we do not know where they came from. This is the real paganism. We don't even realize how much information our language carries.
How did the "images" survive to our times, if people were threatened with hard labor and even the death penalty for their storage? Icons were painted, signed, slightly changing the images to the ones needed by the authorities, so we see such a variety of icons today, unaware of their true history.
Times change, and religions also change with time. In no case should we contrast this information with other knowledge, other religions, start a witch hunt, accuse someone. Perhaps, for some time, the "rules of the game" were changed for us, some knowledge was hidden, "The ways of the Lord are inscrutable." Someone continued to know about the power of the Family and use it in life, respecting their ancestors, someone went astray, laughing at their ideals. But just today and "faith in God",and "the heritage of our ancestors with their ideals" has been included in our Constitution, so this task has been set for us in the near future, we will study, we will take the acquired knowledge into service in order to live life correctly and restore the right order on our land. Russian Russian World, like the Russian language, carries a code given by God, and it cannot be destroyed just like that. (subject for reflection)
