What Is Family Homestead? 

(Excerpts from “Co-Creation” by Vladimir Megre))

First choose a place you like out of all the possible favorable places on Earth, a place where you would like to live, where you would want your children to live, and where you would be a good memory for your great-grandchildren. The climate in that place must be favorable for you. Take for the ages one hectare of land in that place for yourself.

What actions would you take if you were standing on your own land?

A Fence

It is better to plant trees, instead of large number of posts, which can later pot. It is possible to plant impassable bushes in between trees. What a splendid living fence you would have! And it would be just a little different from each other. And everyone would come to admire the view. And your descendants in the ages to come will remember the creator of this splendid hedge. And the hedge will not only save them time on repairs but will bring them benefits as well. It will serve, in fact, as far more just a barrier. One person will make a hedge out of birches growing in a row. Another will use oak. And someone with a creative impulse will make a colored hedge, like in fairy tales.

One might plant different-colored trees: birches, maples, oaks and cedars. Another could intertwine mountain ash with their burning red clusters and plant guelder rose between them. Still another could make room for bird cherries and lilac. You can think all of it through from the beginning. Each person must observe what grows — how high, how it blooms in spring, how it smells, and what kinds of birds it attracts.

Your fence would be singing and fragrant and would never tire your gaze, since it would subtly change its pictures by a half-tone every day. It would bloom with the flower of spring and blaze with the colors of fall.

In order to carry out the project as quickly as possible, you can use a plow around the perimeter to dig a furrow and plant the saplings in it. Plant all the saplings and shrubbery seeds that you've selected between the trees at once. Then run the plow again right next to that and turn the earth. Before the earth gets trampled, correct and line up each of the saplings.

A Plot

Each of us can fell intuitively what will be the most suitable for him and bring joy to the children and grandchildren. Each plan is individual, like a masterpiece. Everyone must create its own masterpiece.

Our plot is a wasteland.

The wasteland has been surrounded by a living fence. Let us take up another three quarters or half with forest and plant different kinds of trees in it. At the forest's edge, where the remaining land joins, we will plant living fencing out of the kinds of bushes that animals can't get through to trample the seedlings in the garden. In the forest of living saplings planted closer to each other, we will set up an enclosure where a goat or two, for example, might live later. Also out of the trees, we will set up a shelter for laying hens.

In the garden, we will dig a shallow pond of a couple of hundred square meters.

We will plant raspberry and currant bushes among the forest trees, and wild strawberries along the edge. Also in the forest, after the trees have grown a little, we will place three empty troughs for bees. We will plant a gazebo of trees, where you and your friends or children can be together, away from the heat, and we will set up a living bedroom, and your creative studio. And a bedroom for the children, and a guest room.

Bushes between the trees — think about how to use them for your life's delight. But here the trees do not let the grass and bushes grow between them, and you can bear this in mind for your own future living home. You must give everything a program and adjust it to your taste. To cherish and delight you and your children, everything in the vicinity that will be on your land must cherish and nourish.

A garden can also be made in such a way that it does not require too much labor from you, after all. Here it is only necessary to observe. Between the grasses — the way everything grows in the forest — you could also grow vegetables, the most beautiful tomatoes and cucumbers. You'd find their taste much more pleasant than what you normally eat, and they will bring the organism much more benefit when the land around them is not bare.

There is nothing without benefit in nature, and there are no unneeded weeds. Nor are there beetles that harm man.

How can you plow the same place every year, tormenting the land? It is like picking at an unhealed wound with a rake and at the same time demanding that grace grow from the wounds. The potato beetle or locust will not touch the plot that you and I are drawing. When everything grows in great harmony, then the fruits yielded to their grower are harmonious.


It is not worth putting too much effort in building a large house that is too solid.

When your grandchildren grow up, they will definitely understand what material of all the earthly ones conceived would be more pleasant, solid, and healthful for them. Right now, you do not have that kind of material. Your grandchildren will build a wooden house out of the trees that their grandfather planted and their father and mother loved. That house will heal them, protect them from evil spirits, and inspire them to the light. The great energy of Love will live in that house.

Dimension of Love

Love is neither fastidious nor obstinate. It strives for Divine creation. It can warm for eternity those who agree to create a Dimension of Love with it.

Dimension of Love it is born for the two of them, and then for their children. The children will have a connection with the entire Universe across three planes of being.

He and she will begin in love to carry out the project we are drawing, planting their own trees, grass, and garden and rejoicing as their creations bloom in spring. Love will live between them, in their hearts, and around them for eternity. Each will present the other with a spring flower, recalling how they planted the tree that has blossomed together. The taste of raspberry will remind them of the taste of love.

Beautiful fruits will ripen in their shady garden, but the two planted the garden together. They planted the garden in love.


A human being takes shape largely before appearing in the world, after all. His upbringing should touch the cosmos's entire creation. God's son should not disregard that which He used in making His beautiful creations.

Parents should present the three main points, the three first planes of being, to their creation.

Here is the first point of a person's birth; it is called parental thought.

The planting of a native tree by his future parents defines the first point, and that point will call on the planets to help them for their future creation. It is needed! It is important! And it is inherent in God most of all! It confirms the fact that you are going to create the likeness of Him, the Great Creator! And He will rejoice at the intelligence of His son and His daughter.

The second point — or rather, yet another human plane is born, and a new star lights up in the sky — is when in love, and in thoughts of creating beauty, two bodies merge into one in the place where you are building a paradise, a living home for your future child.

Later, the pregnant mother should live in that spot for nine months. Things turn out even better if those months are the flowering of spring, the fragrance of summer, and the fruits of fall. Where nothing distracts her but delights and pleasant sensations. Where only the sounds of Divine creations surround the wife in whom the beautiful creation already lives and senses the entire Universe. The future mother must see the stars and give all the stars and all the planets mentally to him, her beautiful child. The mother can do all this easily. This will all be in her power. Everything will follow the mother's thought without delay. The cosmos will be the loyal servant to the two people's beautiful creation in love.

And a third point, a new plane should come about in the same place. The birth should take place where the child was conceived. The father should be by the mother's side. The great Father who loves us all will raise a crown over the three.


That place would have greeted you with great joy. If your flesh is ill, it would heal your flesh. If your soul, then it would heal your soul. It would give food and drink if you were weary. It would wrap you in peaceful sleep and wake you with a joyous dawn. But like many people living on the earth today, you have no place like that. You have no homeland where the planes of being can collect into one.

Life goes on, and each person can create a beautiful image of life at any moment.

It would be good for old people to apologize to their children. Apologize sincerely for the fact that they were not able to give them a world without misfortune, for the dirty water and murky air.

Let aging hands begin to build a real, living house for the grown children. The days of the old peoples' lives will be extended as soon as this thought is born in them. When old people touch their homeland with their own hand, their children will return to them. Even if the old people cannot finish building the house, their children will bury them in their homeland and thereby help them be reborn once again. In the little forest planted by their hand. But they do not need man-made monuments. After all, everything around will serve as a memory of them, your surroundings can remind you of them every day, not with sorrow but with joy. And your family will become immortal. After all, only a good memory brings souls back to Earth.
