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. 

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.  Even though they are just feeling the negative spiritual energy that the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person has been absorbing for them through the years, 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 because of the obvious pain that the other person is  going through.  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 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.
