All of our lives we have heard that everyone is connected and that we are all part of a universal consciousness - kind of like pieces in a puzzle.  The Philosophy of Exotischism embraces the idea that shortly after a child is born, they start picking up subconscious spiritual thoughts and feelings from other people.  This information travels between our soul and the souls of other people in a manner similar to the way that radio, television, and cell phone signals are sent.  Because our thoughts and feelings are constantly being exchanged with those of other people, it can sometimes become very difficult for us to gain control over our own thoughts and feelings.

 

 

Most people are constantly exchanging their subconscious spiritual thoughts and feelings with people who are similar to themselves (the people who act as their conscience).  Every person is a part of the people who they are connected to spiritually.  Try to picture in your mind a main computer with incredible speed and incredible storage capacity that is connected to a number of smaller computers.  When the individual computers send data to the main computer, it is analyzed and compared to the data that has been received from the other computers.  Each computer is immediately sent a report that summarizes the data that has been received from all of the computers.  In the same way each person who is spiritually connected to other people is a small part of those people's thoughts and feelings (each person is part of a collective subconscious).  The people who they are spiritually connected to "pick up" their thoughts and feelings and they "pick up" the thoughts and feelings of the people who they are spiritually connected to.

As the 20th Century came to a close it was starting to become clear that a new class of people was beginning to develop.  The seeds that helped to create this new class of people (who in later years were to behave in many ways like the warriors of the past) were being planted as early as the 1930's.

In the years preceding World War II many people began to abandon their religious beliefs because of the conflicts between religious myths and science.  During World War II the excesses of the warlords in Asia and the white supremacists in Europe also led many people to abandon their faith in men who tried to make themselves into gods. This led to a short period in history where people began to question the long-standing notion that cruelty and abuse were necessary components in a civilized society.

In the period following World War II there were many books and articles published that showed how people are capable of putting complexes on other people by doing something unfair to them or saying something unfair about them and then tying them in psychological "knots" from which they cannot escape by denying that they have done anything wrong. There were a lot of people at that time who believed that by the year 2000 people would no longer want to gain feelings of personal power by taking advantage of other people psychologically.  It was thought that once people realized the manner in which they were hurting other people, they would want to stop doing it.

Over the past few years the new class of warrior that has developed around the world has shown that it takes pride in taking advantage of people who are spiritually and psychologically vulnerable.  Instead of using the information that has been published on psychological weaknesses to help other people become stronger, they have studied that information and they have used that information to purposely abuse people who have been abused enough already.  

Due to the fact that the most spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people were probably damaged emotionally early in life and then had to deal with the increased pressure that was put on them by the warrior class, we now have a situation where many spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people have a type of rage below the surface of their personalities that is hard for them to control.  In order to try to understand how spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people might learn how to control the rage that they might have below the surface of their personalities, it might be useful to examine the concept of spiritual slavery.

 

 

Spiritual slavery (where one person is forced to give their spiritual power to another person) appears to exist in many cultures in the world but the mechanics of how spiritual slavery works no doubt varies from culture to culture.  For this analysis we will look at how a person might become a spiritual slave in one of the developed countries of the western world and how their efforts to escape from their spiritual slavery will probably end in failure.  Early in life the individual who becomes a spiritual slave in one of the developed countries of the western world is never given an even break.  Other kids get away with things that they do not get away with.  If they question anything or ask for the same things that the other kids ask for they will be put under a lot of pressure.  They learn to keep their opinions to themselves because whenever they speak up they are punished.  By being treated in this manner their spiritual energy is never really allowed to develop.  They eventually get into a position where anytime one of the other kids feels bad about something they will take advantage of the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person (the spiritual slave) knowing that no one will protect the more vulnerable person from the spiritual and psychological attack that is being made on them.  Because of this process the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person ends up absorbing the pressure that should be going to the people who have attacked them and who have made them into their spiritual slaves.  They have to deal with not only the pressure of their own lives but they also have to absorb the pressure that is being directed towards the people who have made them into spiritual slaves.  If they eventually, with insight into the nature of their situation, get some sort of psychological release where they no longer feel the need to absorb the pressure of the people who made them into a spiritual slave, they will notice very soon that they will have increased pressure put upon them by people in their group who are upset that the person who made them into a spiritual slave is not happy about the new situation where they have to absorb the pressure that was previously absorbed for them by the spiritual slave.  The spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person might also be accused of being evil after they break free from their spiritual slavery.  The ones who have been using them as spiritual slaves might say that they are feeling increased negative spiritual energy coming into them and they might claim that the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person is evil and has put a curse on them and that is why they are feeling increased negative spiritual energy coming into them.  Actually, they are just feeling the negative spiritual energy that the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person has been absorbing for them through the years.  But being as the person who made the more vulnerable person into a spiritual slave is going through obvious spiritual and psychological pain as a result of what has occurred, it will appear to anyone observing the situation that the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person probably has in fact put some sort of a curse on the other person.  The group will now cast the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person in the role of an evil person and the vulnerable person will be forced to go back into their old role where they were being forced to absorb the pressure that is being directed towards the person who had made the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person into their spiritual slave.

You may have noticed that spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people often seem to be "too nice" and often seem to be afraid to do anything that might get them in trouble.  On the surface it might appear to be silly for a person who lives in a "not so nice" world to always be trying to do the right thing.  But as we see in the example above people who are spiritually and psychologically vulnerable are labeled as being bad or evil whenever they try to escape from their spiritual slavery.  They know that whenever they manage to (with insight) break free from their spiritual slavery there is a danger that people will view them as being evil as a result of what happens to the person who made them into a spiritual slave after the vulnerable person breaks free of their spiritual slavery.  Due to the fact that they are often being blamed for evil things that they have not done, they feel that they cannot afford to do anything that would make them appear to be evil.  They hope that if they can demonstrate that they are not evil people they might be cleared of the charges that have been made against them.  They hope that if they can break free of those charges maybe they will no longer be forced to serve as a spiritual slave and that they will no longer have to absorb the negative spiritual energy that is being directed towards the person who made them into their spiritual slave.

Have you heard the old saying that when a warrior takes another's person's life, that person's soul then becomes a part of the warrior's soul?  In our society today we don't really kill other people like the ancient warriors did, but we sometimes hurt other people emotionally.  When we hurt another person emotionally (by killing part of their life force), that person's soul then becomes a part of our soul.  When one of the members of the warrior class that has developed over the past few years takes advantage of a spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person by stealing their spiritual energy they are often amazed at how much rage their action seems to create in the soul of the more vulnerable person.  They might say that the small attack they made on the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person should not bring on such a big reaction.  They might even think that the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person should be appreciative because now a part of the vulnerable person's soul has merged with the warrior's soul.  What they don't understand is that the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person was earlier in their life charged with being evil when they tried to break free from their spiritual slavery.  They were falsely accused of being evil and they were forced back into spiritual slavery as a result.  While the warrior may feel that anyone should be proud to merge their soul with the soul of a warrior such as themselves, they do not realize that every time a spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person merges their soul with a member of the warrior class it becomes harder for them to break free from their spiritual slavery.  When they originally tried to break free from their spiritual slavery and were falsely charged with being evil, some people may have been on their side and defended them because it was clear to those people that the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person was not evil.  But as time goes by and more and more members of the warrior class make an attack on the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person, it will become increasingly difficult for them to break free from their spiritual slavery because people will sense increasing amounts of evil in the vulnerable person's soul as time goes by and they will force them to remain in their role as a spiritual slave.  

Another reason that spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people are afraid of members of the warrior class is that due to the complex nature of spiritual forces, the vulnerable person is never really able to figure out the dynamics of what happens when a warrior steals the vulnerable person's spiritual power.  The warrior is probably just using the spiritual energy that they take from the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person to help the warrior cheat somebody out of something to gain some sort of a temporary personal gain.  By merging their own spiritual energy with the spiritual energy that they have taken from the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person, they are able to spiritually overpower and control the person who they are trying to cheat because their spiritual levels will be higher after taking the vulnerable person's spiritual energy than the spiritual energy levels of the person who they are trying to cheat.  The warriors know that spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people tend to think that things of a spiritual nature must be divine and altruistic so they know that the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person will not be able to understand how the warrior is using the spiritual energy that they are stealing from the vulnerable person.  Due to the fact that the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person does not know how their spiritual energy is being used by the warrior, it will be hard for them to develop enough insight into the situation to be able to avoid having their spiritual energy stolen from them by that warrior (and by other warriors) in the future.

Eventually, cultures from throughout the world will probably start to move away from the old fashioned practice of using other people as spiritual slaves and eventually spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people should be able to (with insight) finally start to make some progress in breaking free from their spiritual slavery.  In the meantime, it would be good for us to keep trying to learn more about the nature of spiritual slavery.  The transition from the old way of doing things to whatever new order that may develop will probably be smoother if we can learn to understand more about the dynamics of the old fashioned practice of using other people as spiritual slaves.

Most of us who were born in the last half of the 20th Century were encouraged very strongly by our teachers and by our families to learn to think as logically and as carefully as possible.  We were taught to respect science and we were taught to challenge any ideas that were not backed up by cold and hard facts.  Our teachers and families were not trying to mislead us.  They wanted us to be able to successfully navigate our way through life and they sincerely believed that it was dangerous to accept any ideas that were not based on the facts. 

The same respect for the truth that was instilled in all of us as children is causing a lot of people to start questioning the physical laws that in the past have been so important to science.   But while a lot of people are impressed by the argument that energy is matter (we may be able to exchange spiritual information with other people in the same way that radio, television, and cell phone signals are sent and received), the real reason we are starting to once again believe in spiritual forces is that we realize from our experience dealing with other people (and from our strong emotions towards other people) that our spiritual links (both positive and negative) with other people have had a large influence on our lives and will continue to have a large influence on our lives in the future.  As we learn to better understand the nature of spiritual forces, we should be able to start steering a straighter and a more consistent course as we navigate our way through life.

In the period following World War II there were many books and articles published that showed how people are capable of putting complexes on other people (damaging other people psychologically) by saying unfair things about them or doing unfair things to them and then denying that they have done anything wrong. There were a lot of people at that time who believed that by the year 2000 people would no longer want to gain feelings of personal power by taking advantage of other people psychologically.  It was thought that once people realized the manner in which they were hurting other people, they would want to stop doing it.  

Over the past few years a new class of people (the warrior class) has developed.  These are people who take pride in taking advantage of people who are spiritually and psychologically vulnerable.  Instead of using the information that has been published on psychological weaknesses to help other people become stronger, they have studied that information and they have used that information to further damage people who have been damaged enough already.  They have also used that information to continue making spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people into their spiritual slaves.  

But recently something new has started to take place.  It appears that we have started to enter an era where the new class of warriors who have taken such pride in taking advantage of spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people and making them into their spiritual slaves has developed such a strong dislike for the people who they have been dominating through the years that they are starting to want to have nothing to do with these vulnerable people.  The warriors are so sick of the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people that they don't even want them around as spiritual slaves anymore.

Being as we may be moving away from the time in history where people are forced to serve as spiritual slaves it is probably better for spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people not to spend too much time worrying about what happens when one person is forced to serve as another person's spiritual slave.  We do seem to be moving into a period of time where there will be less of that sort of thing going on.  Nonetheless, it might be useful for spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people to have a basic understanding of what happens when one person serves as another person's spiritual slave.  As the old practice of people using other people as spiritual slaves slowly fades away there will still be situations where someone gets forced into the role of a spiritual slave by another person.

When a spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person becomes another person's spiritual slave, they end up absorbing the pressure that should be going to the people who have attacked them and who have made them into their spiritual slaves.  They have to deal with not only the pressure in their own lives but they also have to absorb the pressure that is being directed towards the people who have made them into spiritual slaves.  If they eventually, with insight into the nature of their situation, get some sort of psychological release where they no longer feel the need to absorb the pressure of the people who made them into a spiritual slave, they will notice very soon that they will have increased pressure put upon them by people in their group who are upset that the person who made them into a spiritual slave is not happy about the new situation where they have to absorb the pressure that was previously absorbed for them by the spiritual slave.  The spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person might also be accused of being evil after they break free from their spiritual slavery.  The ones who have been using them as spiritual slaves might say that they are feeling increased negative spiritual energy coming into them and they might claim that the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person is evil and has put a curse on them and that is why they are feeling increased negative spiritual energy coming into them.  Actually, they are just feeling the negative spiritual energy that the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person had been absorbing for them through the years.  But being as the person who made the more vulnerable person into a spiritual slave is going through obvious spiritual and psychological pain as a result of what has occurred, it will appear to anyone observing the situation that the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person probably has in fact put some sort of a curse on the other person.  The group will now cast the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person in the role of an evil person and the vulnerable person will be forced to go back into their old role where they were being forced to absorb the pressure that is being directed towards the person who had made the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person into their spiritual slave.

Spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people have a lot of trouble breaking free from their spiritual slavery because they don't understand the complex nature of spiritual forces and the dynamics of what happens when a member of the warrior class steals their spiritual power.  The warrior is probably just using the spiritual energy that they take from the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person to help the warrior cheat somebody out of something to gain some sort of a temporary personal gain.  By merging their own spiritual energy with the spiritual energy that they have taken from the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person, they are able to spiritually overpower and control the person who they are trying to cheat because their spiritual levels will be higher after taking the vulnerable person's spiritual energy than the spiritual energy levels of the person who they are trying to cheat.  The warriors know that spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people tend to think that things of a spiritual nature must be divine and altruistic so they know that the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person will not be able to understand how the warrior is using the spiritual energy that they are stealing from the vulnerable person.  Due to the fact that the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person does not know how their spiritual energy is being used by the warrior, it will be hard for them to develop enough insight into the situation to be able to avoid having their spiritual energy stolen from them by that warrior (and by other warriors) in the future.  

In general, there seems to be more competition between members of the same sex than competition between members of the opposite sex.  Early in life, people are sometimes taken advantage by members of their own sex who they are competing with and sometimes members of their own sex do unfair things to them that steal their spiritual energy from them.  But people who are spiritually and psychologically vulnerable also have competition with members of the opposite sex.  It is a different type of competition than they have with members of their own sex but it ends up in many ways being similar to their competition with members of their own sex.

For an example of this, lets take the case of a spiritually and psychologically vulnerable man.  Early in life he becomes a spiritual slave and he is forced to start absorbing negative spiritual energy that is being directed towards the person who made the vulnerable person into a spiritual slave.  He finds it difficult to break free from this situation because whenever he manages to, with insight, break free from his spiritual slavery, the one who made him into a spiritual slave becomes unhappy because they are now being forced to absorb more negative spiritual energy than they had been absorbing before (they did not need to absorb as much negative spiritual energy before when the spiritual slave was absorbing the negative spiritual energy for them) and they will find a way to force the vulnerable man back into his role as a spiritual slave.  As he grows up he will get involved in situations where other men will steal his spiritual energy.  The men who steal the vulnerable person's spiritual energy will use the spiritual energy that they receive from the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable man to gain some sort of personal advantage for themselves.  For example, by merging their own spiritual energy with the energy that they take from the vulnerable man, they might be able to spiritually overpower and control a man who they are trying to cheat.  They may be able to cheat a man who they were not capable of cheating before because now, with the extra spiritual energy that they have received from the vulnerable man, their levels of spiritual energy will be higher than the spiritual energy levels of the man who they are trying to cheat and they will now be able to spiritually overpower and control the other man.

The spiritually and psychologically vulnerable man in this example will also be expected to serve as a spiritual slave to the women that he knows while he is growing up.  While he may be attracted to the women he knows, he will not be allowed by the group that has made him into a spiritual slave to get into a genuine relationship with any of the women.  The group cannot allow that because if the vulnerable man was to have a genuine relationship with any of the women, then the women were are using him as a spiritual slave would no longer have any power over him and would not be able to continue to steal his spiritual energy.       

As to the dynamics of what happens when a woman steals the spiritual energy of a man who is spiritually and psychologically vulnerable, what probably occurs is something like the following.  In a similar manner to what happens when a man steals the vulnerable man's spiritual energy and uses it to gain a temporary personal advantage, a woman who steals the vulnerable man's spiritual energy can take the spiritual energy that she has stolen from him and she can merge it with her own spiritual energy.  By merging her own spiritual energy with the spiritual energy that she has taken from the vulnerable man, she might be able to spiritually overpower and control another woman who she is trying to cheat out of something.  She might be able to cheat a woman who she was not capable of cheating before because now, with the extra spiritual energy that she has received from the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable man, her levels of spiritual energy will be higher than the spiritual energy levels of the woman who she is trying to cheat and she will be able to spiritually overpower and control the other woman. 

But there is another factor to take into account when trying to figure out the dynamics of what happens when a man or a woman steals the spiritual energy of a spiritually and psychologically vulnerable man.  A man who steals the spiritually energy of a spiritually and psychologically vulnerable man might use part of the spiritual energy that he steals to give him enough spiritual energy to make a romantic conquest of a woman who had previously not yielded to his advances.  By merging his own spiritual energy with the spiritual energy of the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable man, he might be able to spiritually overpower and control a woman who he had not been able to get involved with before.  And in the same way, a woman who steals the spiritually energy of a spiritually and psychologically vulnerable man might use part of the spiritual energy that she steals from him to give her enough spiritual energy to make a romantic conquest of a man who had previously not yielded to her advances.  By merging her own spiritual energy with the spiritual energy of the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable man, she might be able to spiritually overpower and control a man who she had not been able to get involved with before.  When we try to understand why spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people might sometimes seem to be more hostile towards members of the opposite sex than they are towards members of their own sex, we might want to look at the dynamics of what happens when men and women steal the spiritual energy of a spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person.  If a man or a woman steals the spiritual energy of someone of their own sex and uses part of that spiritual energy to get involved in a romantic relationship with someone of the opposite sex, it might be at least a moderately pleasurable experience for that vulnerable person of their own sex (who is naturally attracted to members of the opposite sex) to be a part of that involvement.  But if someone steals the spiritual energy of someone of the opposite sex and forces them to become a part of a romantic involvement they have with a member of the vulnerable person's own sex (who the vulnerable person is not naturally attracted to) the vulnerable person might find the experience to be unpleasant.

We've all been told that we should "Keep It Simple" but spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people have some complex issues to deal with.  While they need to learn how to prevent the men and women they know from stealing their spiritual energy, they also need to realize that they may have developed underlying hostilities towards members of the opposite sex who have stolen their spiritual energy and who have put the vulnerable person's spiritual energy into unwanted relationships with members of the vulnerable person's own sex.  The vulnerable person needs to, with insight, learn how to stop having their spiritual energy stolen from them.  They also need to, with insight, learn to realize that they should not feel guilty for having been forced to put their spiritual energy into unwanted relationships with members of their own sex (by having their spiritual energy stolen by members of the opposite sex who put the vulnerable person's spiritual energy into relationships that those people had with members of the vulnerable person's own sex).  Then the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person should hopefully be able to, with insight into what has been happening to them through the years, start to finally get free of their hostilities towards members of the opposite sex and also start to get free of their hostilities towards members of their own sex.  Finally, with insight into the situation, they should hopefully be able to start breaking free from the underlying spiritual slavery that is constantly robbing them of their spiritual energy.

 

 

It appears that cultures throughout the world are starting to move away from old fashioned practice of using spiritual slaves.  Of course, it will take some time for this change to take place.  In the meantime, it would be good for all of us, those of us who serve as spiritual slaves and those of us who do not serve as spiritual slaves, to keep trying to understand more about the nature of spiritual slavery.  The transition from the old way of doing things to whatever new order that may develop will probably be smoother if we can learn to understand more about the dynamics of the old fashioned practice of using other people as spiritual slaves.

Spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people have a lot of trouble breaking free from their spiritual slavery because they don't understand the complex nature of spiritual forces and the dynamics of what happens when another person steals their spiritual power.  The other person is probably just using the spiritual energy that they take from the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person to help them cheat somebody out of something to gain some sort of a temporary personal advantage.  By merging their own spiritual energy with the spiritual energy that they have taken from the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person, they may be able to spiritually overpower and control a person who they are trying to cheat because their spiritual levels will be higher after taking the vulnerable person's spiritual energy than the spiritual energy levels of the person who they are trying to cheat.  The person who stole the vulnerable person's spiritual power knows that spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people tend to think that things of a spiritual nature must be divine and altruistic so they know that the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person will not be able to understand how the other person is using the spiritual energy that they are stealing from them.  

It would be nice if the people who are spiritually and psychologically vulnerable could learn to become more stable.  A lot of us might be skeptical about the people in the church but those people do understand a lot about the nature of spiritual energy and spiritual forces.  One of those people could probably explain to spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people how they could become spiritually stronger.  These church people might not always share what they know with other people but they definitely understand this side of the world very well.  Imagine a situation where one of the leaders in the church decides to talk openly with a spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person.  If this were to happen the church leader might say something like the following to the vulnerable person:  "I'm a cynic, I'll admit that to you (but of course if you tell anybody I said that I will deny it).  I know that those of us in the church are too harsh towards any sort of weakness and that we do not really want people who are weak to become stronger (I think we maybe feel that life is a zero sum game and that if we help other people to become stronger, then we will automatically become weaker).  But eventually the world will change.  Those of us in the church will eventually be forced to acknowledge that a lot of our present ideas are just a rephrasing of the imperialistic ideas of the 1800s.  The spiritual force that we call God (the combined spiritual energy of the people who say that they believe in God) is a bit too old-fashioned and a bit too conservative at the present time but someday things will probably start to change.  When things change spiritual energy will still get exchanged between people but the nature of the spiritual energy being exchanged will probably change.  For example, instead of the cold-hearted ruthless people who act pious on the surface (masking who they really are) getting all of the positive spiritual energy coming into them from God (the combined spiritual energy of the people who say they believe in God) and all of the weak and gentle people getting negative and destructive spiritual energy coming into them, we might have a situation where everyone gets a more moderate and neutral type of spiritual energy coming into them".

"Someday things may become easier for people who are spiritually and psychologically vulnerable and they may be able to develop genuine exchanges of spiritual energy with other people.  In the meantime there are two things that, in my opinion, cause the biggest problems for spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people.  The first obstacle is that they believe that things of a spiritual nature must be divine and altruistic.  This creates a problem for them because it allows other people to be constantly stealing the vulnerable person's spiritual energy.  If spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people could develop insight into the fact that when someone steals their spiritual energy, the spiritual energy that the spiritual thief has stolen gets merged with the spiritual thief's own spiritual energy to help them succeed when they are trying to take advantage of another person or cheat another person, it might make the vulnerable people understand these people better and perhaps, with insight, allow them to figure out how to stop other people from stealing so much of their spiritual energy.  For example, the vulnerable person might feel that the spiritual thief has a right to steal their spiritual energy because they might hear this person praying to God in a meeting and they may be impressed with this person's apparent spirituality.  It might be useful for spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people to think of the following when they hear a spiritual thief praying to God.  The spiritual thief is closing his or her eyes and making a subconscious type of communication with all of the people who claim to belief in God.  As I mentioned earlier, those of us in the church today hold beliefs that are very similar to the imperialistic ideas of the 1800s.  The spiritual force that we call God is actually the combined spiritual energy of the people who say that they believe in God at this point in history.  When those of us in the church pray to God we picture a "person" who was born into an upper middle class family in one of the developed countries of the world.  This "person", who represents the combined spiritual energy of those of us in the developed countries of the world who claim to believe in God, had exchanges of spiritual energy with other people coming into them from their community early in life that cemented into their soul a firm belief in the idea that "you should not give a sucker an even break" and that you should make every effort you possibly can to break, crush, or destroy anybody who is a sucker and anybody who is weak.  But of course this "person" who we pray to always was and always is careful to give the impression to other people that they are kind and compassionate (they know that it is easier to trick other people if they do not see who you actually are).  This "person" who we picture as being God in our minds (and this "person" who we pray to) feels that it in order for us to maintain our wealth and to maintain our levels of spiritual energy, it is necessary for us to oppress and trick other people (and this includes increasing our levels of spiritual energy by making other people into our personal spiritual slaves)."

"The second problem I've noticed that spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people have is their lack of understanding about the nature of their relationships with other people.  You may have heard people who have normal spiritual abilities (individuals who are not spiritually and psychologically vulnerable and who are capable of having genuine exchanges of spiritual energy with other people) talk about how their current lover was able to tie up their emotional loose ends and was able to help to bring their life into perspective.  It was almost as if the spiritual energy that the individual had been exchanging with their previous lovers (who were no longer physically present) was transferred to their new lover (who was physically present).  Spiritually and psychologically vulnerable individuals also have a tendency to transfer their exchanges of spiritual energy from people who they liked in the past (people who were willing to exchange spiritual energy with them in the past) to people who they like now (people they know in the present who are willing to exchange spiritual energy with them).  For example, a spiritually and psychologically vulnerable man might find the spiritual energy he receives from a new woman he has just met (a woman with normal spiritual abilities) to be better and stronger than the spiritual energy that he received from any of the other women such as her who he knew in the past (and she might find the spiritual energy that she feels coming into her from him to be stronger and more intense than any of the other low level exchanges of spiritual energy that she has experienced from other men like him in the past).  But when this man comes to understand that this woman does not believe that there is any basis for them to have a serious relationship (because she is accustomed to men exchanging stronger levels of spiritual energy with her than the levels of spiritual energy that she exchanges with the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable man), the vulnerable man might start to wonder just what has been going on in his spiritual and emotional life that could lead to such an strange situation."

"Spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people often detach themselves from other people to try to protect themselves from descending further and further into their destructive world of spiritual slavery.  But they do still seek out relationships with other people hoping that they might meet someone who will show them how to somehow escape from their spiritual slavery.  As a spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person, you need to understand that when you form relationships with people who have normal spiritual abilities, they might end up dragging you down further into your world of spiritual slavery rather than helping you to break free from your spiritual slavery.  When you start getting involved with (or start yielding yourself to) a person with normal spiritual abilities, you might start to subconsciously dip further into your spiritual slavery.  If the person you are getting involved with prays to the same God that I pray to (the one who thinks it is necessary to oppress other people and to make other people into spiritual slaves), then as you get more and more involved emotionally with them you too will subconsciously start to believe that it is necessary for people to serve as spiritual slaves.  At that point you might stop fighting against your role as a spiritual slave and without your knowledge you might start to descend further into the role that has been assigned to you by life and the role that you have been trying to avoid all of your life.  And as the person you are getting involved with watches you self-destruct before their eyes, they will probably want to end the relationship."

"I would recommend that spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people try to gain insight into the fact that their relationships with other people could unintentionally drag them further into their destructive world of spiritual slavery.  If a spiritually and psychologically vulnerable man, for example, can gain insight into his situation, then in the future when he meets a woman with normal spiritual abilities, he will broadcast out spiritual vibrations that say to her that even though he thinks that he would like to get involved with her, he does not want a relationship with someone who believes that it is necessary to use other people as spiritual slaves.  If she prays to the same God that I pray to, and if she believes firmly that it is necessary to use other people as spiritual slaves, then she will probably back off from any further involvement with him and he will be saved from any further spiritual destruction.  If the new woman he meets does not believe that it is necessary to use other people as spiritual slaves, she might choose to get involved with him and it might turn out to be a pretty good relationship."

 

 

It appears that cultures throughout the world will eventually move away from old fashioned practice of using other people as spiritual slaves, but it will no doubt take some time for this change to take place.  In the meantime, it would be good for all of us, those of us who serve as spiritual slaves and those of us who do not serve as spiritual slaves, to keep trying to understand more about the nature of spiritual slavery.  The transition from the old way of doing things to whatever new order that may develop will probably be smoother if we can learn to understand more about the dynamics of the old fashioned practice of using other people as spiritual slaves.

In the period following World War II there were many books and articles published that showed how people are capable of putting complexes on other people (damaging other people psychologically) by saying unfair things about them or doing unfair things to them and then denying that they have done anything wrong. There were a lot of people at that time who believed that by the year 2000 people would no longer want to gain feelings of personal power by taking advantage of other people psychologically.  But what actually happened was that instead of using the information that had been published on psychological weaknesses to help other people become stronger, many people began to study the psychological information that had been published and they began to use that information to purposely take advantage of people who were spiritually and psychologically vulnerable.  As a result of what has happened, we have a situation today where there are a lot of spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people who have become very discouraged.

Most of us think of successful salespeople as being individuals who are very different from people who are spiritually and psychologically vulnerable.  While spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people are often nervous when they are around other people, successful salespeople seem to thrive on being with other people and they seem to thrive on meeting new people.  It would be nice if a successful salesperson could sit down with a spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person and give them some insights that might help to make them stronger.  In the following story we are going to see what might happen if a successful salesperson named Mike were to sit down in a Chicago bar with a spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person named Dan and talk with him about things of a spiritual and psychological nature.

After Mike and Dan had ordered their drinks Mike said to Dan.  "Dan, I understand that you are spiritually and psychologically vulnerable and that you are interested in having a better understanding of things of a spiritual nature.  I would like to help you understand the nature of spiritual things better but as you know, the fact that a person has a lot going on spiritually in their own life does not always mean that they will be able to explain those spiritual things to another person.  I believe that a lot of our spiritual activity goes on at a subconscious level and for this reason it is difficult to understand things of a spiritual nature.  Dan, why don't you start out by telling me your ideas about spiritual things and when you are done, I will try to add some insights to what you have told me."

"Sure", said Dan.  "Last night I spent some time with a friend of mine named Thomas who is a college student here in Chicago .  Thomas has spent a lot of time studying things of a spiritual nature and I would like to share with you some of the things that Thomas and I talked about last night.  Thomas started out last night by telling me that last week when he was in Los Angeles on spring break he went out to dinner with his friend Jeffrey.  Jeffrey is spiritually and psychologically vulnerable and he has been discouraged lately.  Thomas wanted to try to give him some insights to help him feel better.  Thomas started out by telling Jeffrey that he believes that everyone is constantly exchanging spiritual energy with other people and that our exchanges of spiritual energy with other people are an important part of our relationships with other people.  Thomas explained to Jeffrey how sometimes people talk about how their current lover was able to tie up their emotional loose ends and was able to help to bring their life into perspective.  He explained to Jeffrey how it almost seemed to those people that the spiritual energy that they had been exchanging with their previous lovers (who were no longer physically present) was transferred to their new lover (who was physically present).  Thomas explained to Jeffrey that he believes that people such as Jeffrey who are spiritually and psychologically vulnerable also have a tendency to transfer their exchanges of spiritual energy from people who they knew in the past to people who they know in the present."

"One of the waitresses at the restaurant in Los Angeles where Thomas and Jeffrey had dinner is a girl who Thomas knows named Amber.  Amber had told Thomas about how last summer she got involved with a guy who was spiritually and psychologically vulnerable so Thomas asked her to come over to their table and tell Jeffrey about that relationship.  Amber explained that at first she was reluctant to get too close to the guy.  She was pretty sure that it would not develop into a serious relationship so she felt kind of guilty getting involved with him.  But still she sensed that he was reaching out to her and that he wanted to get to know her.  After a while Amber realized that even though the exchanges of spiritual energy between her and the guy who was spiritually and psychologically vulnerable were not strong enough for her to be able to get seriously involved with him, it seemed to him like his relationship with Amber was serious.  Looking back on the experience Amber thinks that there was a logical basis for her to have a relationship with the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable guy.  He had been exchanging spiritual energy in the past with girls who were similar to Amber (girls with normal spiritual structures), and she had been exchanging spiritual energy with spiritually and psychologically vulnerable guys in the past.  The spiritually and psychologically vulnerable guy was transferring to Amber the spiritual energy that he had exchanged with other girls who he knew in the past and she was transferring to him spiritual energy that she had exchanged in the past with other guys she knew who were spiritually and psychologically vulnerable."

"When Amber left their table to help some of the other customers Jeffrey commented to Thomas that he could feel some very positive energy being exchanged between Thomas and Amber.  He asked Thomas why he had never gotten involved romantically with Amber.  In answer to Jeffrey's question  Thomas explained to Jeffrey that most people as they are growing up develop two types of emotions.  They develop deep emotions for the people who they are really close to emotionally, and they also develop a "practical" set of emotions that they use when they are in situations where they are dealing with people in their school while they are growing up or where they are dealing with people in business types of situations when they start their working lives.  For example, a girl who is running for homecoming queen or for a class office while in high school might develop "practical" relationships where she merges the practical part of her soul with her fellow students for the purpose of getting their votes in the school election.  Thomas told Jeffrey that this sort of thing also happens quite often in business situations where a salesperson, for example, might feel that it is important for them to form a temporary spiritual bond with their client so that they will be able to influence the client when they need the client to do something that they want them to do (such as when they need the client to sign a contract).  Then Thomas explained to Jeffrey that what he thought was happening between him and Amber was that he was merging the practical part of his soul with her and she was merging the practical part of her soul with him.  So even though the exchanges of spiritual energy between them were positive, those exchanges of spiritual energy were not a good basis for developing a serious relationship.  Thomas then explained to Jeffrey that it is his belief that many spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people only develop a practical set of emotions and that is why they might sometimes think that there is a basis for them to develop a serious relationship with someone who is only merging the practical part of their soul with them."

"Then Jeffrey asked Thomas to explain in a little more detail the dynamics of what happens when a spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person starts to believe that they are developing a serious relationship with a person who is only merging the practical side of their soul with them.  In answer to Jeffrey's question Thomas gave him an example.  Thomas asked Jeffrey to imagine that he got to know a girl named Vanessa who merged the practical side of her soul with Jeffrey for a short time.  While that took place Jeffrey was exchanging his spiritual energy with Vanessa and she was exchanging her spiritual energy with Jeffrey.  He explained to Jeffrey that compared to the amount of spiritual energy that most people exchange with other people he might not have been exchanging a lot of spiritual energy with Vanessa, but he thought that there was a magical exchange of spiritual energy taking place between him and Vanessa because he could sense that her subconscious mind was communicating with his subconscious mind.  Then he asked Jeffrey to further imagine that another girl came along who also merged the practical part of her soul with him.  It was similar to his exchange of spiritual energy with Vanessa, but it was different because now his subconscious mind was communicating with this new girl's subconscious mind.  Thomas explained to Jeffrey that it was his belief that during the time that Jeffrey knew these girls, he would have been exchanging his spiritual energy with them through the Collective Subconscious when he was with them, and he would have been exchanging his spiritual energy with them through the Collective Subconscious when he was not actually with them."

 

 

"After Thomas explained his ideas about spiritual energy to Jeffrey, Jeffrey told Thomas that what he had said made a lot of sense.  Jeffrey said he thought that gaining insight into how the subconscious mind works might help him to learn how to communicate better with other people and might help him to get along better with other people.  For example, Jeffrey told Thomas he thought it might be useful for him to program his subconscious mind to communicate to the subconscious minds of the girls who he meets in the future that he has been misinterpreting the situation in the past and that he is sorry if his subconscious mind is sending out signals to their subconscious minds that are stronger than what is appropriate considering the fact that they are only merging the practical parts of their souls with him."

Dan thought for a moment and then continued.  "After Thomas had finished telling me about the conversation that he had with Jeffrey last week, I reminded Thomas that I am also spiritually and psychologically vulnerable.  I told Thomas that I had tried to do variations of what Jeffrey was suggesting where his subconscious mind tries to subconsciously apologize to the subconscious minds of the girls who he meets for coming on too strongly, but that I didn't think that was going to totally solve the problem for Jeffrey.  I told Thomas that I think Jeffrey has to go further and that he also has to change the way that his subconscious mind communicates with the subconscious minds of the guys who he knows."

"Thomas and I have discussed before how many spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people have been made into spiritual slaves by people who have taken some of their spiritual energy away from them.  Whenever a group makes a person into their spiritual slave by treating them unfairly, the one who is the spiritual slave starts contributing spiritual energy to the other members of the group.  The ones who dominate the spiritual slave through the years care about that person very deeply because of what the spiritual slave does to strengthen the group, not because they want the spiritual slave to become stronger.  I reminded Thomas how he had told Jeffrey that Thomas and Amber were only merging the practical parts of their souls with each other and how Thomas knew that this was not a good basis for developing a serious relationship.  I then told Thomas I believe that the guys who try to dominate spiritual slaves such as Jeffrey and myself know for certain, just like Thomas knows for certain, that they cannot develop a serious relationship with a girl if they are only merging the practical part of their soul with her.  I told Thomas I think that the guys who try to dominate spiritual slaves such as Jeffrey and myself will try to make us believe (both while communicating with us verbally and while communicating with us subconsciously) that we will eventually be able to develop a serious relationship with a girl who is only merging the practical part of her soul with us.  This tricks us into thinking that we are better off to continue going down the same path that we are presently on rather than trying to make a change.  The ones who are dominating us want us to stay where we are.  That is why I believe that it is important for Jeffrey and myself to realize that while it is a good idea to get our subconscious minds to communicate to the subconscious minds of the girls who we know that we are sorry if we are coming on too strongly to the practical parts of their souls, we also need to get our subconscious minds to communicate to the subconscious minds of the guys who we know that we are suspicious when they tell us, both in verbal communication and in subconscious communication, that we will eventually be able to develop a serious relationship with a girl who is only merging the practical part of her soul with us."    

"At this point I told Thomas I knew that he might be thinking that while in theory it makes sense for Jeffrey and myself to try to stop other people from overpowering us spiritually, it will be hard for us to actually make this happen.  I told Thomas that while it is true that most people in the world today have less spiritual energy than their ancestors had (because they grew up in a very scientific and skeptical world where it is difficult for a person to have any sort of deep religious faith), most people in the world today do have a fair amount of spiritual energy because they have been exchanging spiritual energy with other people through the Collective Subconscious throughout their lives.  Then I told Thomas I think that in order for people such as Jeffrey and myself to avoid being overpowered spiritually by the people who are dominating us, it is important for us to come up with a framework for understanding (and for believing in) spiritual energy exchanges.  I told him I thought that Jeffrey and I should maybe come up with a variation of Pascal's Wager."

"Thomas liked that idea.  He pointed out that when my subconscious mind and Jeffrey's subconscious mind try to confront the subconscious minds of the guys who are trying to dominate us and mislead us with false information, their subconscious minds are likely to let us know that there is no way that we will be able to overpower them spiritually at a subconscious level.  Their subconscious minds will tell our subconscious minds that we are basing our argument (that they are destroying us on a subconscious level by giving us false information) on the idea that people exchange spiritual energy with other people through the Collective Subconscious.  They will argue that we do not really truly believe that people exchange spiritual energy with each other through the Collective Subconscious because we do not have absolute scientific proof.  They will argue that for this reason we will not have enough faith to stop them from overpowering us spiritually on a subconscious level.  Thomas then said that what Jeffrey and I can do is to subconsciously communicate to the people who are trying to spiritually overpower us that while we might not have absolute scientific proof that people exchange spiritual energy with other people through the Collective Subconscious, we do believe deep down in our hearts that there is a logical reason for us to believe that exchanges of spiritual energy between people through the Collective Subconscious actually do take place.  We have a logical reason to bet (or wager) that people exchange spiritual energy with other people through the Collective Subconscious because if it is true that people do exchange spiritual energy through the Collective Subconscious, and if we do not have a strategy for dealing with that, then we will continue to allow other people to hurt us by stealing our spiritual energy.  The potential negative consequences for us are too great and too damaging if it is true that this exchange of spiritual energy does take place and if we have no defense against the people who are misleading us with false information and who are stealing our spiritual energy through the Collective Subconscious."

 

 

Mike thought about what he had heard for a moment and then said "Dan, I think that Thomas is on the right track here.  Your subconscious mind has trouble communicating to the subconscious mind of someone who is bullying you that they should stop what they are doing because the other person knows that you are weaker spiritually than they are and that you do not really believe at a deep level that people exchange spiritual energy with each other through the Collective Subconscious.  I agree with Thomas that you should let the spiritual bullies know subconsciously that you choose to believe deep down in your heart that people exchange spiritual energy through the Collective Subconscious because that is a better bet (or wager) for you to make than believing that people do not exchange spiritual energy through the Collective Subconscious.  But I think that this strategy by itself is not enough.  After subconsciously communicating your version of Pascal's Wager to the spiritual bully, the subconscious mind of the spiritual bully might say something like this to you: "Dan, you know that at a deep down level I do not really believe in the myth of God.  You are basing your argument that I am misleading you with false information that I am sending into your subconscious mind on the idea that even though I don't believe in the myth of God, I do believe at a deep down level that people exchange spiritual energy with each other through the Collective Subconscious.  I believe that people exchange spiritual energy with each other through the Collective Subconscious because I have experienced strong exchanges of spiritual energy with other people through the Collective Subconscious throughout my life.  But even though your assumptions are correct, I am going to steal some more of your spiritual energy through the Collective Subconscious right now and your variation of Pascal's Wager is not going to prevent this from happening.  And do you know what I am going to do with the spiritual energy that I steal from you?  I am going to merge it with my own spiritual energy and I am going to use that extra spiritual energy to give me enough spiritual power to spiritually overpower a person who I have been trying to cheat recently.  You are not only going to give me some of your spiritual energy right now but you are also going to feel bad afterward that you have made it possible for me to cheat a person who you would probably really like if you got to know them."

"Dan", continued Mike, "the example I just gave of what might be communicated subconsciously between a spiritual bully and a person who was spiritually and psychologically vulnerable might seem a little bit strange at first.  You would think that if someone told you subconsciously that they were not only going to take some of your spiritual energy, but that they were also going to use that spiritual energy that they stole from you to do something that you would not approve of, that you would not allow that to happen.  But if you have never had a conscious awareness of the idea that a person might subconsciously steal some of your spiritual energy and might use that spiritual energy to do something that you would not approve of, your subconscious mind would have trouble preventing that from happening.  You might feel a lot of frustration and confusion as your subconscious mind was trying to communicate to your conscious mind that something was very wrong, but without having a conscious insight into the situation, it would be hard for you to direct (or program) your subconscious mind to prevent this from happening in the future.  I believe that conscious insight into what might be going on in the subconscious mind is very important so that the conscious mind will know how to program the subconscious mind."

Dan thought for a moment and then said, "That's pretty good, Mike.  I will program my subconscious mind to subconsciously tell spiritual bullies that while I may be weaker than they are spiritually, I have chosen to believe deep down in my heart that people exchange spiritual energy with each other through the Collective Subconscious because that is a better bet (or wager) for me to make than believing that people do not exchange spiritual energy with each other through the Collective Subconscious.  This will hopefully convince them that in the future I will not be as easy of a spiritual prey for them as I have been in the past.  And if they then tell me that they are going to steal my spiritual energy so that they can use that spiritual energy to give them extra spiritual power so that they can cheat another person who they otherwise would not be powerful enough to cheat, my subconscious mind will not be powerless to prevent that from happening.  My subconscious mind will reply to the subconscious mind of the spiritual bully that I am aware that spiritual bullies take pleasure in doing things like that but that I am not going to let it happen."
