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 have 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 s he 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.
