Neshka Robeva about Baba Vanga
What did the prophetess teach you, what did she most often advise you?
Baba Vanga would never impose her advice upon anyone, she would not preach from the pedestal of her uniqueness and genius – her whole life was an example of the essence of teaching. An example for those who have lost their strength and faith, those who were hurt, deprived, sick or lonely… She lived her life under the heavy burden of her mission, without complaining – she never accused or judged anyone, but would offer help to everyone who needed it.
How did she understand faith? Why did she insist so much on faith, on believing in God?
I don’t know how she understood faith – but she carried it within herself, she radiated faith and inspired others. She was enlightened. The power to know and “see” things, unattainable to others, was given to her. This made her sad and apprehensive… Because she knew very well that you couldn’t make anyone believe in God, unless they were willing. Whenever she talked, there were many people around her who listened, but very few who actually heard what she said.
It seems that faith and spiritual awareness hold the key to our salvation. Baba Vanga often used to say: “Bulgarians suffer because they are not believers”. Why do we dismiss this important message from her so lightheartedly?
Because we are not believers. Achieving spiritual awareness is difficult. Not only for us. Look at what’s happening around the world. Baba Vanga would often say: ‘Greediness would kill humanity. Pray to God to save us all” Hardship and suffering can be overcome, if people believe that difficulties come as a response to our individual and collective way of life. We are the ones who are causing them. The situation is like this: our country is being robbed, our people are subject to genocide. Our leaders are more and more incapable and prone to corruption. And all this happens with our participation or lack of such. We are the ones who choose to follow the road of suffering. And maybe this is our destiny…
