To the general topic ЂRussia and Christianityї and ЂSense of Russian Historyї:
Christianity which is not at all of this world was tried as a cover-up for a political state in this world, the result of which Ц "unworldly holes" piercing this world all through into abyss of emptiness. One of such terrible "holes" is the whole of Russian historyЕ
That is why people in the West sometimes "terrified" of it as something "irrational" and awesome Ц if not to say awfulЕ But it really is. There is a parable of Christ in the Bible of attaching a new patchwork to old clothing ЂNo one puts a patch of unshrunk cloth on an old garment; for the patch pulls away from the garment, and a worse tear resultsїЕ
There are also other parables, explaining all things in this History Ц so much "to the point", that Е I can't help writing the following:
So, what is that: "to hear and not to act upon"? In original Greek, it's simply "do them" ("poiein"; word "poet" and "poetry", by the way, come from this root; while there is such Russian saying: ЂPoet in Russia is more than a poetїЕ), as in original Hebrew "Word" and "Deed" are one word ("DAVR"), so Е such contradiction between Word and Deed Ц is not even what was pertaining initially: neither to Word nor to Deed, but Е obviously came later, as a Е "Sign of last times"!
So Е what is that: "Word separated from deed" which people are anxious to Е "Listen and not act upon"?
Ч Obviously, it's MYTH; in translation from Greek "myth" means "Fairy-tale", "Saga", "Story", just Е "Flow of words" (in Russian "Skazanie") which is "by its own" and doesn't require correspondence to the Reality, any realization in deeds!
Such kind of mythology is a basis of any pagan religion. It is clearly Ц not to transform the reality; maybe it's to safeguard its current status ("Status quo", as they call it in Latin).
While Е Christianity Ц clearly calls to transform; all of its words Ц are of Reality, about Reality (witness), and for transfiguration of the Reality! (Literally Ц commandments!)
But Е ЂWe are born to make fairy-tail a Realityї were namely the words of a Bolshevik song (even a hymn called "Aviators' March", the melody of which, by the way, was stolen from a Nazi hymn with constant cryings: "Heil Hitler!"), while Е Christianity namely was used in the era before Е to safeguard current status of things ("Status quo"), as I've said above of pagan religion, and even Е namely on place of such religion!
And this is a right place to ask:
What religion at all is used for?
ЕYou may be surprised, but religion usually lies that it is "of the Heavenly"; no, it is OF THE EARTHLY! It is Ц to safeguard that self-same earthly "status of things", while Е "some mythology of the Heavenly" is only used, so to say, for "dialectical anchor": something opposite to the earthly, of other nature to it. For the earthly itself can't hold itself in one's limits, it runs to the different sides, expands, and even explodes sometimes; in the nature of matter Ц to scatter, disperse, dissipateЕ, unles it is united (and Е bound!) by certain idea

∆изнь моих сочинений напоминает что-то из компутерного software: в отличие от печатной продукции, не знают за-вершЄнного и со-вершенного состо€ни€, но Ц посто€нно совершенствуютс€, продолжаютс€ и обновл€ютс€; ведь Е абсурдом было бы требовать от программиста, чтобы он, запершись в глухой монастырь, создал лет через Е 100 "всесовершеннейшую программу", котора€ бы не требовала никаких доработок и продолженийЕ ѕочему же требуют тќ от мен€? Ќе лучше ли Ц в наш компьютерный век просто и наблюдать эти вещи в ≈—“≈—“¬≈ЌЌќ… дл€ них "среде обитани€"?..
