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.

 

 

The Collective Subconscious of the Group

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. 

Sometimes the spiritual connections that form between two people can become so strong that a person might start to accept things about the other person that they did not originally accept.  This happens because each person is deep into the soul of the other person and is having a very strong influence on the other person's thoughts and feelings.  People who form strong spiritual links with another person can sense (or perceive) the other person's thoughts and feelings in a very strong way.  When one of them has a thought or feeling, the other person will sense that thought or feeling and will respond to it automatically (and neither person will be consciously aware of the dynamic exchange of spiritual information that is taking place).  But even though these people may feel that they are very close to each other, there is still a filtering process in place (the main computer).  They will not be able to know exactly what the other person is thinking (although they may have a pretty good idea sometimes as to what the other person is thinking).

The Myth of the Passive-Aggressive Personality

In the period following World War II there were many advances made in the field of psychology.  One of the discoveries made at this time was that there were a lot of people who seemed to be somewhat passive on the surface but who projected out to the world a type of subconscious (or below the surface) unstated aggression towards other people.  Being as these people were not totally autonomous (or not totally together), they would try to gain feelings of power and control by doing things like showing up late for work, not finishing jobs that they started, and making excuses for themselves. 

The above discoveries about the passive-aggressive personality were being made at about the same time in history that people were beginning to realize that mankind had been living in a dream world.  People had been flying high believing in myths that had no basis in fact and were having to face the harsh reality that they were not going to be able to continue to live the same way that they had in the past.  The information that surfaced about the passive-aggressive personality was disturbing because it pointed out just how dysfunctional society had become.  There was no denying that there were a lot of people who were not really strong enough to function in society but no one really wanted to admit that society was to blame for the problem. 

One of the techniques that was developed to deal with this problem was to try to deny that the problem existed.  For example, when it became obvious that one of these people had a behavior problem in their high school classroom by showing up late or being late turning in their assignments, the teacher might start to suddenly make life difficult for one of the quiet, shy students in the class who was always on time and who did not talk in class.  This would divert attention away from the fact that the passive-aggressive student had a problem and would also give some feelings of motivation to that student (who would realize that the teacher must really like him if he would do something like that for him).  It would also protect the teacher from criticism that he did not use discipline when the passive-aggressive student was disruptive.  The teacher did use discipline, but he disciplined the wrong person (he disciplined a student who was more vulnerable than the passive-aggressive student).  After the "discipline" the behavior of the disruptive student would improve at least temporarily.  While it would certainly be unfair for the student who took the blame (and who had to unfairly receive the discipline that should have gone to the other student), it would help to protect society.  If the teacher disciplined the disruptive student, that person would then feel forced to show defiance towards the teacher and their behavior would become worse as a result of the discipline.  A situation like that would be embarrassing for society.

Over the years society has continued to "bail out" passive-aggressive people whenever they have started to stumble in ways similar to the above classroom example.  One of the techniques for doing this has been to take spiritual energy from the people who are truly vulnerable spiritually and psychologically and give it to the passive-aggressive people.  But we may be getting close to the point where the people who are truly vulnerable spiritually and psychologically will no longer have any spiritual energy left to give.  We need to remember that if you go back to the same well too many times, it may eventually become dry. 

Life in the Spiritual Pit

Many years ago, before the major advances in science that we have all benefited from, it was widely felt that people from other cultures were somehow evil.  But as we became more enlightened and as we began to understand our spiritual natures, we began to realize that all cultures are basically the same as our own from a spiritual point of view.  Everyone on earth begins the process of exchanging their subconscious spiritual thoughts and feelings with other people shortly after they are born.  Some of the spiritual information they "pick up" from other people early in life may contain cultural and religious myths that have no basis in fact but those cultural and religious myths seem magical to them and they will allow those myths to go deep into their souls because the myths will come into them in a magical way (through the automatic exchange of subconscious spiritual information with other people).  Today it seems that people throughout the world have come to a belief that people who have antisocial characteristics are the only people who are evil because they project out a nervous type of spiritual energy to the world and because they are not "solid" members of any particular spiritual or cultural group.

At some deep subconscious level a lot of people feel that when one of the antisocial people eventually blows up psychologically and commits a tragic crime, that all of the other antisocial people in the world have somehow been involved in the crime.  They feel that the other antisocial people have been encouraging the criminal by way of the subconscious spiritual messages that they feel these people exchange back and forth between themselves in some sort of evil spiritual underworld (or spiritual pit).  And it may be true that something like this does take place.  But whether or not it is true that all antisocial people are constantly communicating with each other by way of subconscious spiritual messages in their spiritual underworld, a lot of people do seem to believe that this is true.  When an antisocial person commits a crime, and another antisocial person who has never even met them notices that they are getting a lot of dirty looks from other people, the innocent antisocial person who had nothing to do with the crime should not become defensive thinking that they are unfairly being blamed for something that they did not do and that they do not approve of.  They might actually have subconscious spiritual links with the person who committed the crime that they are not aware of.  If they realize that possibility, then they will understand why people sometimes seem to blame them for something that they did not do and that they do not approve of.

We need to realize that it may be possible that early in life some of the people who we define as antisocial may have been unfairly deprived of their spiritual energy (when their spiritual energy was unfairly taken away from them) and may have as a result been thrown into an evil spiritual underworld.  It is not a perfect world and sometimes things happen that should not happen.  If it is true that they did not want to become antisocial but were forced down that path when their spiritual energy was taken away from them (and if they tried to stop what was happening but were not able to), then it can be argued that even though they may have developed subconscious spiritual links with the evil spiritual underworld, they should not be blamed as much as they presently are.  They are not really evil by nature.  They were simply forced by their community into a spiritual position that they did not want to be placed into.

Sometimes people who are antisocial get defensive when people suggest that they should change because they feel that the people who are trying to get them to change are the same types of people who put them into the difficult spiritual position that they are presently in (they are the same types of people who deprived them of their spiritual energy originally).  They need to, with insight into the situation, stop blaming themselves for having been thrown into the spiritual pit that they are in, but they also need to realize that they might have, since being thrown into that pit, subconsciously formed spiritual links with people who would not like them if they ever actually met and who they would not like if they actually met.  When they realize this they will probably want to wash off some of the spiritual dirt that they have picked up while they were in the spiritual pit.  We need to remember that not all antisocial people like being in the spiritual position that they are presently in.  When analyzing people in this position, we need to look at the specifics of each particular situation.  Did they carelessly fall into the evil spiritual pit that they are in, or did they jump into the spiritual pit on purpose, or were they thrown into the spiritual pit against their will?

Happy Days and Magic Crystals

Many years ago people would often talk about unlocking the secrets of the mind.  Many people were also fascinated by the psychological research that was going on at that time.  Today, when we analyze the reasons for why there have been so few spiritual and psychological advances made over the past few years, we have to wonder if maybe there are not too many more advances that need to be made.  A lot of people have already decided that most of the major advances in spiritual and psychological research have already been made.  And these people have already begun to turn their attention to using what they have learned to help them in their daily lives.  

Unfortunately, many of the people who have been applying what has been learned from the research are the ones who are the most afraid of the results of that research (and are the ones who have the most to lose if people start to pay close attention to the findings of the research).  They are the ones who take pleasure in taking advantage of other people spiritually and psychologically.  They take pleasure in hurting other people psychologically by doing unfair things to them or saying unfair things about them and then denying that they have done anything wrong.  By doing this, they are able to tie other people in psychological knots from which they cannot escape.

As the period of spiritual and psychological advances came to an end, it became apparent that there were two basic types of people who had been damaged by society and who were beginning to become an embarrassment to society.  (These were people who were not totally comfortable with the inconsistencies in our society and who had been in one way or another damaged spiritually and psychologically by the stronger members of society.)  The first type of person who had been damaged by society basically liked the superficiality in the world but just didn't know how to be tricky enough or dishonest enough and for that reason had been taken advantage of by other people.  These people thought that the goals of society were basically good, but that they personally were not adequate (or not worthy).  These people were thought of by the stronger members of society as "good people" who had a bad streak because of the fact that they were weak and not really autonomous (or not totally together).  The second type of person who had been damaged by society liked to act rebellious.  They prided themselves on not being superficial.  But these people could not hide their secret admiration for the stronger members of society who were able to get away with things.  These people were thought of by the stronger members of society as "bad people" because they did not accept society's superficiality (and also because they were not really autonomous [or not totally together]).  But many people felt that these "bad people" had a good streak because it was obvious that they secretly admired many of the stronger members of society (the ones who were able to get away with things).

Over the past few years the people who are a little bit more spiritually and psychologically vulnerable than the two groups described above (the "good people" and the "bad people") have been unintentionally working together with the stronger members of society to help lift up and encourage those people who had become an embarrassment to society many years ago when the major advances made in spiritual and psychological research were made.  But it has not been easy for the people who are a little bit more spiritually and psychologically vulnerable to do this (and they have not done it voluntarily).  Whenever one of the "good people" started to embarrass the stronger members of society with their weaknesses, the stronger ones would encourage them to increase their feelings of spiritual power by attacking one of the people who was more vulnerable than themselves spiritually and psychologically by doing something unfair to them or saying something unfair about them and then denying that they had done anything wrong.  This increased the spiritual power of the "good person" at the expense of the person who was a little bit more spiritually and psychologically vulnerable than themselves.  In a similar way whenever one of the "bad people" started "acting up" (or started acting disruptive), the stronger members of society would in a very obvious manner start to make life unpleasant for (or "lean on") one of the people who knew the "bad person" and who was a little bit more spiritually and psychologically vulnerable than the "bad person" was.  Whenever the strong members of society did this, the "bad person" would see what was happening (no doubt finding the situation to be "delicious") and would be able to increase their feelings of spiritual power at the expense of the person who was a little bit more vulnerable than themselves.  The more vulnerable person would not like what was happening but they would have no way to stop it.  The "bad person" would gain a sense of importance as it became clear to everyone watching that, while the "bad person" might be bad and weak, at least they were better and stronger than the person who was being forced to take the blame for them when they "acted up" (or were disruptive).  The stronger members of society knew that they could not discipline the disruptive person (the "bad person") because that person would not be able to handle the discipline (because they were too weak), so they disciplined someone else instead (someone who was a little bit more spiritually and psychologically vulnerable than the "bad person" was).

 

 

A lot of people have tried to "make sense" of some of the things that were going on in society during the years following the era in the last century when the major spiritual and psychological advances were made.  There were idiotic TV shows and movies being produced that depicted life in the past in a very inaccurate (and a very over-glamorized) way.  A lot of people shook their heads trying to figure out why so many people seemed to find so much enjoyment and so much meaning in these silly excuses for entertainment.  Some people at that time refused to even have a television set in their homes.  They wanted to make a statement to the world that they did not like (or understand) what was going on.  What people failed to realize at that time (it is more clear now looking back) was that these TV shows and movies may have actually been a way to disguise the spiritual power transfer that was taking place at that time between the "good people" in society, who had become an embarrassment to the people who were spiritually strong, and the people who were truly vulnerable spiritually and psychologically.  It appeared to a lot of us that these "good people" loved this type of entertainment because it somehow made them nostalgic about the past.  But actually, they were gaining real-time feelings of spiritual power coming into them from those who were spiritually and psychologically weaker than themselves during this period of time.  They were gaining this spiritual power by doing unfair things to people who were more vulnerable than themselves (or saying unfair things about them) and then denying that they had done anything wrong.  That was probably a large part of what was making them feel better about themselves.  It was not just the memories of the past.

 

There was something else going on during the years following the period of major spiritual and psychological advances that had a lot of people confused.  The same stronger members of society who had been encouraging the "good people" to get lost in nostalgia were starting to "look the other way" when a lot of the "bad people" described above started getting involved with drugs.  It was generally thought at the time that the stronger members of society were looking the other way when it came to the subject of drug use because they knew how important it was to be socially accepted.  What we failed to realize at that time was that society's apparent acceptance of drug use at that time may have actually been a way to disguise the spiritual power transfer that was taking place at that time between the "bad people" in society, who had become an embarrassment to the people who were spiritually strong, and the people who were truly vulnerable spiritually and psychologically.  It appeared to a lot of us at that time that these "bad people" loved drugs in part because of the feelings of social acceptance that they felt they gained from using drugs.  But actually, they were gaining real-time feelings of spiritual power coming into them from people who were spiritually and psychologically more vulnerable than themselves during this period of time.  They were gaining this spiritual power by "acting up" (or acting in a disruptive manner) and then being rewarded for their actions when the stronger members of society punished another person for what they had done (someone who was more vulnerable than themselves).  Whenever they did this, spiritual energy was taken away from the more vulnerable person and that spiritual energy was given to them.  That was probably a large part of what was making them feel better about themselves.  It was not just the drugs.

 

 

The spiritually weak and vulnerable people described above like to imagine that someday these "good people" and "bad people" who they have unintentionally been helping to become stronger are going to maybe in some small way repay them for what they have done (or at least stop trying to drain them dry).  But when one of these spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people tries to explain the above described situation to one of the "good people" in an effort to hopefully reduce the amount of spiritual power that is constantly being drained out of them, the "good person" will very likely claim that the weaker person is being unkind (that they are trying to tear down [or stop contributing to] a spiritual structure that they themselves have willingly helped to create).  And when one of these people makes a similar plea to one of the "bad people", these people will respond by once again "acting up" (or acting disruptive),  knowing that when they do so, the stronger members of society will once again reward them by giving them some of the more vulnerable person's spiritual power.

While people who are spiritually and psychologically vulnerable like to try to develop relationships with other people, they tend to only form weak relationships with the people who they meet.  But from time to time they will meet people who they feel they are developing a genuine relationship with.  

There is something special that happens when a woman with normal spiritual abilities makes an effort to get to know a man who is spiritually and psychologically vulnerable.  When they are together, she is allowing him to "pick up" her subconscious spiritual thoughts and feelings.  Even though it does not develop into what most people would call a serious relationship, the positive spiritual energy that he picks up from her during the short periods of time when they are together "overrides" his own damaged spiritual structure with her spiritual structure (he merges with her spiritually [but only in a weak sort a manner]).  For a few hours after they are together, life will seem to him to be easier than it usually is.  He will feel that the people he encounters are now accepting him and that they now seem to understand his point of view without him having to explain it to them (he will feel that the presence of this woman in his soul is making it easier for him to communicate with other people).  He will believe that he is experiencing what most people feel all of the time (dynamic, real-time spiritual links with other people).  But in reality he will only be getting a small taste of the spirituality that most people experience all of the time.  While the woman will be having a strong effect on his thoughts and feelings, she would probably be able to have "relationships" with three or four men like him simultaneously.  Each of the men would, like him, feel that this woman was having a strong effect on them.  She might enjoy the company of these men, but she would not be overwhelmed emotionally by any of them.  If she did have "relationships" of the type described above with four spiritually and psychologically vulnerable men simultaneously and was asked to compare the feelings that she picked up from these men, she might comment that she noticed that even though all of the men sought out her company, she sensed negative spiritual energy coming into her from them.  She might say that one or two of them seemed to be exchanging more negative spiritual energy with her than the others were, but that the percentage of negative spiritual energy that each of them was exchanging with her was much higher than the percentage of positive spiritual energy that each of them was exchanging with her.

It is hard to understand why there are so many spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people who have more negative exchanges of spiritual energy with other people than positive exchanges of spiritual energy with other people.  It is true that there are bad things that happen in the world and that people are not always kind to each other, but how could people get involved in such negative exchanges of spiritual energy?  Below is one example of how a person might get into a pattern of developing negative exchanges of spiritual energy with other people.

Most of us have been in situations where we were going through a hard time and then we were very disappointed when the people around us (who we hoped would encourage us during our time of trouble) actually seemed to be happy about our misfortune (thereby making our pain even worse).  When a family is going through a hard time (such as a death in the family or a financial set back) and a new family member comes along, there is a danger that some of the more aggressive and unkind members of the community that the family is involved in will start to put increased amounts of pressure on the family in an effort to hurt the family at a time when they are down and vulnerable.  Some families can handle this type of pressure and humiliation better than others, but it is not easy for anyone to feel negative spiritual energy coming into them from members of their community when they feel that these people should be trying to help them in their time of difficulty.  When a family is pressured in this sort of a way and a new member is born into the family, there is a danger that the family will transfer the negative spiritual energy that is coming into them from the members of their community that are pressuring the family to the new family member.  The other family members are able to keep their equilibrium because they do not have to absorb the negative spiritual energy that was previously coming into them.  

When the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person described above absorbs the negative spiritual energy that was forced on his or her family at the time they were born, this negative spiritual energy becomes a part of their emotional structure.  Some families might absorb more of the type of pressure described above than others (and thereby force less of the negative spiritual energy onto the new member).  That is why some spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people have a lower percentage of negative spiritual exchanges with other people than do other spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people.  But all of them seem to have a higher level of negative exchanges of spiritual energy with other people than most other people do.  When the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person forms relationships with other people as they are growing up, those relationships will be based on a combination of the positive spiritual energy they felt coming into them early in life and the negative spiritual energy that they felt coming into them early in life.  If the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person has an emotional structure that is 20 percent positive and 80 percent negative they will be sending a lot more negative spiritual energy to the people they meet than positive spiritual energy.  No matter how hard they try, they will have trouble getting genuinely close to other people emotionally because the other person will generally be more attracted to people who have large percentages of positive spiritual energy than they are to people who have large percentages of negative spiritual energy.  On the other hand, if a person who has the ability to form genuine (and positive) exchanges of spiritual information with other people has an emotional structure that is 80 percent positive and 20 percent negative, they will probably be able to form genuine (and positive) emotional relationships with other people without too much effort. 

It might be good if spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people could become aware that, while they may exchange spiritual energy with other people, the spiritual energy that they exchange with other people may be in large part negative.  They should realize that the only way they are going to be able to develop genuine (and positive) exchanges of spiritual information with other people is if they can, with insight, learn to understand how they might have been (if the "Theory of Negative Spiritual Exchanges" presented above is true) forced to develop negative exchanges of spiritual energy with overly aggressive and unkind members of their community who put pressure on their family at the time that they were born (or how they might have been forced into other types of negative spiritual energy exchanges with other people early in life).  It might also be good if they could realize how those negative exchanges of spiritual energy might have possibly become the basis for a lot of other negative exchanges of spiritual energy that they have developed with other people throughout their lives.  

 

 

Situations like the one described above where a woman with normal spiritual abilities develops a "relationship" with a man (or as in the example above relationships with three or four men simultaneously) who is spiritually and psychologically vulnerable are not uncommonThis sometimes happens 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 this person when they need the client to do something that they want them to do (for example, signing the contract).  The salesperson knows how to use spiritual links to influence and guide the other person's thinking.  Usually, the client does not believe deep down in his or her soul that they could have any sort of a real relationship with a salesperson who uses this type of low level spiritual connection to help make their day to day activities go more smoothly.  But people who are only capable of low level (and largely negative) exchanges of spiritual energy with other people (people like the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable man described above) will more or less bring the salesperson into their soul and will subconsciously "introduce" them to all of the other people who they have met during their lives in these types of situations. 

You may have heard people who have normal spiritual abilities (and who have positive 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 is 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).  Individuals such as the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable man described above also have a tendency to transfer their exchanges of spiritual energy from women who they liked in the past (women who were willing to exchange spiritual energy with them in the past) to women who they like now (women they know in the present who are willing to exchange spiritual energy with them).  The spiritually and psychologically vulnerable man in the example above might find the spiritual energy he receives from the new woman 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 [and largely negative] 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, he will realize that he has been believing that this woman is giving him very strong (and very deep) spiritual and emotional guidance while she on the other hand believes that there is not really very much going on between him and her.  After having an experience like this, he might start to wonder just what has been going on in his spiritual and emotional life that could lead to such an strange situation.

Everyone on earth begins the process of exchanging their subconscious spiritual thoughts and feelings with other people shortly after they are born.  When people such as the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable man described above begin life they also begin to exchange spiritual information with other people.  But the spiritual thoughts and feelings that they exchange with other people might be composed of a much higher percentage of negative spiritual energy than of positive spiritual energy.  The negative exchanges of spiritual energy that they receive from other people might seem magical to them (even though it is negative spiritual energy) because that spiritual energy comes into them in a magical way (though the automatic exchange of spiritual information with other people).  That is probably the reason why spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people have trouble keeping themselves from getting "involved" with people who are not really involved with them.  They truly believe that something magical is taking place between themselves and the other person. 

The spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person might imagine that the other person must care deeply about them (or is possibly guiding them subconsciously) because they can sense that they are exchanging quite a bit of spiritual energy with that person (possibly more spiritual energy than they have ever exchanged with anyone else).  But the fact that someone exchanges spiritual energy with you (even if it is more spiritual energy than you have ever exchanged with another person before) does not mean that they care about you deeply or that they are somehow intentionally guiding you subconsciously (and it does not mean that they want to increase the amount of spiritual energy that they are exchanging with you).  In fact, sometimes in these situations a person who is accustomed to having positive exchanges of spiritual energy with other people might get nervous when they sense that they are starting to have strong exchanges of spiritual energy with a person who is spiritually and psychologically vulnerable (and they might want to cut back on [rather than increase] the amounts of spiritual energy that are being exchanged).  It is hard for the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person to understand what is going on unless they can possibly learn to understand that most people are constantly exchanging positive spiritual energy with other people (and most people receive very strong and very deep spiritual and emotional guidance from the people who they exchange spiritual energy with).  Most people do not get excited by the fact that they are exchanging spiritual energy with another person.  Exchanges of spiritual energy are for most people just a normal part of life.

As described above, there is something special that happens when a woman with normal spiritual abilities makes an effort to get to know a man who is spiritually and psychologically vulnerable.  When they are together, she is allowing him to "pick up" her subconscious spiritual thoughts and feelings.  Even though it does not develop into what most people would call a serious relationship, the positive spiritual energy that he picks up from her during the short periods of time when they are together "overrides" his own damaged spiritual structure with her spiritual structure (he merges with her spiritually [but only in a weak sort a manner]).  While the woman will be having a strong effect on his thoughts and feelings, she would probably be able to have "relationships" with three or four men like him simultaneously.  Each of the men would, like him, feel that this woman was having a strong effect on them.  She might enjoy the company of these men, but she would not be overwhelmed emotionally by any of them.  If she did have "relationships" of the type described above with four spiritually and psychologically vulnerable men simultaneously and was asked to compare the feelings that she picked up from these men, she might comment that she noticed that even though all of the men sought out her company, she sensed negative spiritual energy coming into her from them.  She might say that one or two of them seemed to be exchanging more negative spiritual energy with her than the others were, but that the percentage of negative spiritual energy that each of them was exchanging with her was much higher than the percentage of positive spiritual energy that each of them was exchanging with her.  She would not think there was any basis for her to have a serious relationship with any of the men because she would only be interested in having serious relationships with people who were capable of exchanging larger amounts of positive spiritual energy with other people than negative spiritual energy.

Spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people might imagine that another person must care deeply about them (or is possibly guiding them subconsciously) because they can sense that they are exchanging quite a bit of spiritual energy with that person (possibly more spiritual energy than they have ever exchanged with anyone else).  When they finally realize the manner in which they have been misinterpreting the situation, it will not be easy for them to "swallow their pride" and admit that they have a lot less control over their subconscious thoughts than they previously thought was the case. But while spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people have trouble admitting that their relationships with members of the opposite sex might be based on a false foundation, their relationships with members of their own sex can be even more dangerous and potentially damaging to them than are their relationships with members of the opposite sex.

It is natural that there is more competition between members of the same sex than competition between members of the opposite sex.  Early in life, spiritually and psychologically vulnerable 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 power and that gives their spiritual power to the person who took advantage of them.  When this happens the one who stole the spiritual power from the more vulnerable person immediately starts to view the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person as a potential threat.  They are afraid that the person who they stole the spiritual power from is going to try to regain (or take back) the spiritual power that was stolen from them.  This situation creates tension between the one who lost their spiritual power and the person who stole that spiritual power.  The spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person will feel a certain amount of anger (hostile spiritual energy) coming into them from that person who has now started to distrust them.  They will be confused by these feelings of anger that are coming into them.  They will get confused in a similar manner to what they feel when they sense that they are exchanging spiritual energy with a person of the opposite sex.  This will happen because they sense that something magic is taking place (because they will sense that another person's spiritual energy is coming into them), but they will not understand the nature of what is happening.

The confusion that a spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person feels when they sense hostile spiritual energy coming into them from a member of their own sex can potentially cause spiritual and psychological damage.  Even though the hostile spiritual energy coming into them is not very strong by normal standards (because the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person is not capable of strong exchanges of spiritual energy with other people), it may seem strong to them.  That destructive spiritual energy can have a strong effect on this person.  If someone told the person who was sending this hostile spiritual energy to the more vulnerable person how much this destructive spiritual energy bothered the more vulnerable person, they might be surprised.  They might comment that they send large of amounts of destructive spiritual energy to other people all the time (much larger than the amounts of anger that they feel they are sending to the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person).  In fact, they might comment that they don't really think that the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person has much capacity for exchanging spiritual energy with other people and that this person could not possibly be receiving a very large quantity of destructive spiritual energy from them.

While the man, in this example, who stole the spiritual power will be having a strong effect on the thoughts and feelings of the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable man, he would probably be able to have similar "relationships" with three or four men like him simultaneouslyIf this were to happen, each of the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable men would feel that this man was having a strong negative effect on them.  He, on the other hand, would not be overwhelmed emotionally by any of them.  He would feel that he was only exchanging a relatively small amount of spiritual energy with each of the men.  But if he were asked to compare the hostile spiritual energy that he was exchanging with each of these men, he might comment that he noticed that even though all of the men were exchanging hostile spiritual energy with him, he was exchanging larger amounts of hostile spiritual energy with one or two of the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable men than he was with the others.  

In the same way that a spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person might start to imagine that a person of the opposite sex (who they are exchanging spiritual energy with) might be giving them more subconscious spiritual guidance than this person is actually providing, the same person might start to imagine that a person of their own sex (who they are exchanging hostile spiritual energy with) might actually be capable of hurting them more spiritually and psychologically than they actually are capable of doing.  With the person of the opposite sex they subconsciously "add to" the feelings they get when they exchange spiritual energy with the other person and they make it into something more than it actually is.  With a person of their own sex they also might "add to" the feelings they get when they exchange hostile spiritual energy with the other person and they might make it into something more than it actually is.

Subconsciously "adding to" the feelings a person gets when they exchange spiritual energy with a person of the opposite sex might give a person a feeling of happiness.  But it is interesting to speculate what might happen when a spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person subconsciously "adds to" the feelings that they get when they exchange hostile spiritual energy with a person of their own sex who has a reason to want to hurt them (a person who fears that the more vulnerable person might try to take back the spiritual power that was stolen from them).  The spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person might start to believe that the other person is exchanging a lot more hostile spiritual energy with them than they are actually are.  This situation might very easily make the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person feel unhappy and might even weaken them to the point where they might become sick.  When this sort of thing happens, a combination of the relatively weak hostile spiritual energy that the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person is exchanging with the person who stole their spiritual power and the "adding on" that is done by the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person might be what is creating the feelings of unhappiness and the feelings of physical weakness that the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person is experiencing.

As described earlier, when a spiritually and psychologically vulnerable man meets a new woman who is willing to exchange spiritual energy with him, he might transfer the spiritual energy that he received from women like her who he knew in the past to the new woman.  He may find the spiritual energy that he exchanges with the new woman to be better and stronger than the spiritual energy that he exchanged with any of the other women such as her who he knew in the past (and she might find the spiritual energy that she exchanges with him to be stronger and more intense than any of the other low level [and largely negative] exchanges of spiritual energy that she has experienced with other men like him in the past).  In the same way, when a spiritually and psychologically vulnerable man meets a new man who likes to steal spiritual power from other men, he might transfer the hostile spiritual energy that he exchanged with men like him who he knew in the past to the new man.  The spiritually and psychologically vulnerable man may find the spiritual energy that he exchanges with the new man to be more hostile and more destructive than the spiritual energy that he exchanged with any of the other men such as him who he knew in the past (and the new man might find the hostile spiritual energy that he exchanges with the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable man to be stronger and more intense than any of the other low level (and largely hostile) exchanges of spiritual energy that he has experienced with other men like him who he knew in the past.  But like with the woman in the example above, when the man who likes to steal spiritual power from other men becomes aware of the high levels of hostile spiritual energy that he is exchanging with the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable man (a man who is normally only capable of weak spiritual exchanges with other people), he might become alarmed and he might decide to cut back on the amount of hostile spiritual energy that he is exchanging with the more vulnerable man. 

A lot of people are beginning to realize that there is a lot of falseness in the world and for this reason they are starting to want to only experience things that are real.  For this reason it is likely that the people who are capable of strong and positive exchanges of spiritual energy with other people will increasingly be cutting back on their low-level exchanges of spiritual energy with people who are spiritually and psychologically vulnerable.  But rather than viewing this possibility as a threat, people who are spiritually and psychologically vulnerable should try to view what is happening as an opportunity to potentially move on to something that might be better for them.  They might now have a chance to start building something for themselves that is much better and that is much more real than what they had in the past.

In a situation like the one above where a man with normal spiritual abilities finally decides that he is tired of exchanging large amounts of hostile spiritual energy with the types of men who he has stolen spiritual power from in the past, he will need to come up with a strategy for severing his emotional ties with those men.  He knows that these men have similar backgrounds to his own.  In other words they probably grew up in families that were somewhat similar to his family in terms of what the basic beliefs of the families were.  He does not have a strong connection with the men in terms of the amounts of spiritual energy that are being exchanged but they do have a strong connection in terms of the fact that the spiritual energy being exchanged is of a very deep, subconscious type (it is the type of spiritual energy that gets exchanged between people who have similar sorts of backgrounds).  

For this example let's assume that both the man with normal spiritual abilities and the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable men who he is trying to sever his emotional ties with all grew up in middle to upper middle class families in one of the developed countries of the world.  All of the men had spiritual energy coming into them from their community early in life that cemented into their souls a firm belief in the idea that "you should not give a sucker an even break".  All of these men knew that most cultures in the world have a certain amount of sympathy with that somewhat cynical view of life, but they also knew that being as their spiritual group was somewhat more affluent than most of the other spiritual groups in the world, that their spiritual group not only believed that "you should not give a sucker an even break" but that you should also, if possible, make every effort you can possibly make to "break" (or destroy) anybody who is a sucker, and anybody who is weak (or who is not affluent).  They felt that this was necessary in order to ensure that their spiritual group maintained its position as one of the more affluent spiritual groups in the world (and that the spiritual groups that were less affluent would not have a chance to catch up with them).

During the early years of life the man with normal spiritual abilities learns how to harness and focus his spiritual energy.  Although as the years go by he still firmly believes in the idea that you should crush suckers, foolish airheads, and people who are not affluent, he knows that sometimes you are more effective in your dealings with the people who you are trying to hurt if you learn to filter out the hostile feelings that you have towards them during the periods of time that you are actually with them.  Your dealings with them will go more smoothly if while you are talking to them you guard yourself from showing how you really feel about them. 

During the early years of life the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable men in the same spiritual group as the man with normal spiritual abilities will start to increasingly send distorted and confusing spiritual signals to the people they meet.  After their first couple of experiences having their spiritual power stolen by men with normal spiritual abilities who they know in their own spiritual group, they may actively seek out people from other spiritual groups, hoping they will find acceptance from those people.  They might think that they must have some sort of a spiritual bond with people from spiritual groups that their own spiritual group considers to be unacceptable because people in their own spiritual group who have normal spiritual abilities laugh at people from spiritual groups that they consider to be weaker and less affluent than their own and because these same people from their own spiritual group who have normal spiritual abilities also laugh at them.

There is a good chance that the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable men will find that their efforts to become accepted by people from other spiritual groups (groups that their own spiritual group looks down on) will meet with failure.  In fact, these people may be so hostile towards these initiatives of friendship that the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person may decide that they really do belong in their own spiritual group.  They will start to once again think of themselves as being firm members of their own original spiritual group.  They will tone down their efforts to reach out to people who don't seem to accept them and they will realize that because of the elitist sorts of beliefs that their own spiritual group holds towards spiritual groups that they consider to be weaker (or less affluent) than their own, it is natural for these people to distrust them.  Everything will seem to be under control.  As long as they remember who they are (firm members of their own spiritual group), they will be not feel the need to reach out to people from other spiritual groups who (for no good apparent reason) seem to not like them very well.

As the years go by, however, the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person will run into more and more situations where people with normal spiritual abilities in their own spiritual group will steal more and more of their spiritual power.  Each time this happens they will become convinced that they should reach out to people from other spiritual groups and each time they try to do this they will be once again rejected.  They will go back and forth between thinking of themselves as firm members of their own spiritual group (snobbish elitists) or perhaps potential members of spiritual groups that their own spiritual group looks down on (thinking of themselves at these times as maybe being champions of freedom who have been cast out of their spiritual group).

It seems that spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people in the situation described above are safer during the times that they view themselves as members of their own original spiritual group.  They understand at these times why people from other spiritual groups might distrust them.  They are less scary to people from other spiritual groups at those times because they don't try to "come on" to them too strongly at those times.  But as the years go by, eventually the men and women in their own spiritual group who they have been exchanging low levels of spiritual energy with may decide to cut back on the amounts of spiritual energy that are being exchanged.  The spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people will find it hard to think of themselves as snobbish elitists when the snobbish elitists are ignoring them, and they will find that people from spiritual groups that the snobbish elitists look down on will still not consider them to be champions of freedom and will still not welcome them with open arms.

As they approach this frightening new world where they are ignored by members of their own spiritual group and are distrusted by members of other spiritual groups for no good apparent reason, it might be helpful for them to consider that through the years they may have been subconsciously (and unintentionally) sending negative and hostile feelings of spiritual energy to people in other spiritual groups (and they may have been sending out those feelings unfiltered).  The people in their own original spiritual group with normal spiritual abilities were able to control (and filter) the amount of negative and hostile spiritual energy they sent to people from other spiritual groups.  But the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people (who had the same elitist spiritual ideas pumped into their souls at an early age as did the people with normal spiritual abilities in their own spiritual group) were never able to learn to control their spiritual energy.  They may have tried to reach out to people from their own spiritual group and also to people from other spiritual groups in an effort to avoid the spiritual and psychological situation that they presently find themselves in, but they were not successful. 

They will now find that people from their own original spiritual group who they deal with may be afraid of them because they are sending out unfiltered negative and hostile spiritual messages to people from other spiritual groups saying something like "you are a sucker, and you are weak, and I will make every effort to break (or destroy) you".  In a complex world where people mix with people from other spiritual groups every day, most people feel that they cannot afford to be associated with someone who sends out frightening spiritual messages to people from other spiritual groups (and the fact that these people from their own original spiritual group [who are now frightened of them] helped to create the situation that they are in does not mean that these people are now going to help them get out of the situation that they are in).

It might be useful if spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people in this situation could start to think of themselves as people who were in fact born into a snobbish elitist spiritual group and that early in life ideas were cemented into their souls (through the automatic and real-time exchange of spiritual energy with other people) telling them that people from spiritual groups that were less affluent than their own were actually suckers who were weak and who did not deserve an even break in life.  They also learned to believe at a very early age that they should make every effort to break (or destroy) those people from other spiritual groups so that those people would never allowed to become strong enough to catch up with their own group.  When they understand this, they should be able to start to control the unfiltered negative and hostile spiritual energy that they may unintentionally be sending to people from other spiritual groups.  This should help them to develop better relationships with people from other spiritual groups and also help them to develop better relationships with people from their own original spiritual group.

Spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people also have a tendency to send out unfiltered negative and hostile spiritual energy to other spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people.  When they eventually reach the point where they realize that they are not being accepted by members of their own spiritual group and that they are not being accepted by members of other spiritual groups, they may decide to try to reach out to other people who are spiritually and psychologically vulnerable.  When they do this they are likely to run into the same problems they experience when they try to reach out to people from other spiritual groups (spiritual groups other than the one that they were born into).  In a manner similar to their interactions with people from other spiritual groups, they will not realize that they are sending out negative and hostile spiritual messages to those other spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people (spiritual messages saying something like "you are a sucker, and you are weak, and I will make every effort to break [or destroy] you").  They will also have trouble understanding why these people don't seem to want to accept them.  They know that people from their own spiritual group look down on these other spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people and that people from their own spiritual group also look down on them personally.  On the surface that seem might to be a good basis for developing a relationship.  But they will not realize that while other people from their own spiritual group send negative and hostile spiritual messages to people who are spiritually and psychologically vulnerable, those messages are filtered so that the person receiving the messages does not become too angry.  When a spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person tries to get to know another spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person, they will send those negative and hostile spiritual messages out unfiltered and they are likely to not only fail to make a new friend, but they are likely to also make that other spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person become very defensive and very angry.

 

 

The man with normal spiritual abilities and the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable men described above (men who grew up in middle to upper middle class families), had ideas cemented into their souls at an early age saying that a man should be as tough as nails, that a man should never give a sucker an even break, and that a man should make every effort to break down (or destroy) anybody who is a sucker and anybody who is weak.  But they also had ideas cemented into their souls at an early age saying that a man should have a surface personality that said to the world that they were a kind, good, and compassionate person.

During the early years of life, as the man with normal spiritual abilities learns how to harness and focus his spiritual energy, he is careful to mask his aggressive nature with a surface personality that says to the world that he is a kind, good, and compassionate person.  And if anybody tries to say or infer that he is not a kind, good, and compassionate person, he will make every effort that he can to try to destroy that person. 

During the early years of life the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable men in the same spiritual group as the man with normal spiritual abilities will find that their efforts to become accepted by others as being people who are as tough as nails below the surface while being kind, good, and compassionate on the surface will be rejected.  They may go through periods of time when they think that they need to act tougher in order to succeed because they sense that they are being rejected because people think that they are "too nice".  But when they try acting tougher they will find that this approach will also not succeed.

What spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people in this situation may not realize is that they are constantly sending off spiritual messages to other people saying that they are a person who is as tough as nails below the surface but who pretends to be kind, good, and compassionate so that they will be able to get away with deceiving and hurting other people every time they get an opportunity to do so.  That is probably the reason that they are being rejected.  They may find this confusing because people with normal spiritual abilities in their own spiritual group appear to send out the same spiritual messages to other people but they don't seem to suffer from rejection as much as does the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person.  The key difference is that the people with normal spiritual abilities learn to harness and focus their spiritual energy so that they are able to control (and filter) the spiritual messages that they send out to other people.

The spiritually and psychologically vulnerable men in the example above are fighting a war on two fronts.  They have to be careful when dealing with people from other spiritual groups than the one that they were born into because they are constantly sending out spiritual messages to these people saying something like  "you are a sucker, and you are weak, and I will make every effort to break [or destroy] you").  And they are also constantly sending out spiritual messages to everyone they meet (people from their own spiritual group and people from other spiritual groups) that say "I am a person who is as tough as nails below the surface but I pretend to be kind, good, and compassionate so that I will be able to get away with deceiving and hurting you".  There are people in the world who are able to get away with sending out filtered spiritual messages such as these to other people, but nobody gets away with sending out spiritual messages such as these unfiltered.

Sometimes people like to compare life to a play that you might see in a theater.  But people who are spiritually and psychologically vulnerable are usually not very good at pretending and they often have trouble playing out their roles while acting in the game of life.  They may also feel that they are not being accepted by the other actors.  When spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people get involved with a new group of people and they feel that they are starting to make progress with being accepted by the other group members they may feel like they are an actor in a play where the person who was struggling starts to be accepted by people who were once hostile towards them.  And they might be suspicious that the people who seem to be starting to accept them are just playing a game to give them a false feeling of confidence so that they can laugh at them later when they "pull the plug" and stop pretending that they are accepting that spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person.  But even though the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person knows that they are not a good actor and that the ones now seeming to accept them will eventually "pull the plug" on the emotional support that they are now giving to the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person, the more vulnerable person really believes that they have the ability to become an actor in the theater of life who will someday become genuinely accepted by the other actors and by the audience.  In spite of all of the evidence to the contrary, why do they believe that they can become a good actor in the theater of life?

As mentioned earlier, a spiritually and psychologically vulnerable man who grew up in a middle to upper middle class family in one of the developed countries of the world might have had spiritual energy coming into them from their community early in life that cemented into their souls a firm belief in the idea that "you should not give a sucker an even break and you should also, if possible, make every effort you can to "break" (or destroy) anybody who is a sucker, and anybody who is weak".  But they also had ideas cemented into their souls at an early age saying that a man should mask his aggressive nature by having a surface personality that says to the world that they are a kind, good, and compassionate person.  They know at a very deep subconscious level that they did in fact have the same types of spiritual energy cemented into their souls at an early age as did people in their own original spiritual group who had normal spiritual abilities.  Throughout their lives they have been sending out subconscious spiritual messages to other people that are similar to the subconscious spiritual messages that people from their own original spiritual group with normal spiritual abilities have been sending out.  So if they are similar to people in their own spiritual group in terms of the types of subconscious spiritual messages that they are sending out, it would seem logical to them that they would also be the same in terms of being able to become good actors in the theater of life.

Individuals who have normal spiritual abilities seem to have a pretty good understanding as to the nature of the problems that spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people face.  But they are not always willing to share their knowledge with spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people.  They often would prefer to leave the more vulnerable person clueless rather than to share their knowledge.  But if they were to open up and give some useful advice to a spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person they might say something like the following:  "You were born into the same snobbish elitist spiritual group that I was born into.  We had ideas cemented into our souls at an early age saying that we should crush people from spiritual groups that were weaker than our own while showing the world a surface personality that masked our true nature.  As the years went by I learned to harness my spiritual energy and I learned to turn my emotions on and off depending on the circumstance.  You might say that I became a very good actor.  That is where we are very different.  You are not a good actor because your emotions are not yet fully developed.  You should concentrate on learning to control the unfiltered spiritual messages that you have been unintentionally sending out to other people throughout your life.  Those unfiltered spiritual messages that you send out do not seem to match your true feelings.  This confuses people but with insight into what is happening you might be able to learn to communicate better with other people and you might be able to develop better relationships  While you and I may be the same in terms of the types of subconscious spiritual messages that were cemented into our souls at an early age, the path that I have taken in my life and the path that you have taken in your life are very different."  

 

 

There are many countries in the world where you can obtain a restraining order to keep someone you know from hurting you.  Sometimes one party in a divorce will ask for a restraining order against their former partner if they think the former partner might try to find them and abuse them after the divorce is final.  And if the person who was issued the restraining order does not comply with that order, the person who obtained the restraining order can ask the police to arrest that person.  A person might also get a restraining order if their former partner pays them unwelcome visits (even though their former partner may not be physically abusive during the visits).  Sometimes when a relationship ends just the sight of your former partner can cause you emotional damage.  Many countries in the world recognize that fact and they have laws to protect people who do not want to see their former partners.

As discussed earlier, people who are spiritually and psychologically vulnerable might sometimes start to think that they might be getting emotionally involved with people who are not really involved with them.  When the other person senses the strong vibrations that they are receiving from the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person they may make hints to the more vulnerable person that they should "back off" and direct their energy towards pursuits that have a greater chance of success or perhaps towards people who really might want to get involved with them.  The spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person might think that this is unfair because the relatively small amount of spiritual energy that was being exchanged between themselves and the other person never really developed into what most people would call a relationship and because they are being treated by the other person in a manner similar to how a person might treat someone who they had just gotten a divorce from.

The spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person in this situation has just been issued a Spiritual Restraining Order (a non-written spiritual order that is enforced by all of the members of society who will send negative spiritual messages into the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person if they continue sending unwanted spiritual vibrations to the person who has requested the Spiritual Restraining Order).  The other person requested the Spiritual Restraining Order by sending out subconscious spiritual messages to the world (or at least to everyone they know) saying that the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person has developed a spiritual relationship with them that they do not want to be involved in and that they feel that the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person is going to try to continue to pursue that relationship against their wishes.

It is important for the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person to learn how to comply with the Spiritual Restraining Order and to stop sending unwanted spiritual vibrations to the person who has filed the complaint.  As part of their efforts to comply with the Spiritual Restraining Order it might be useful for them to learn to understand the five deadly sins that can cause people of the opposite sex and also their own sex to have a Spiritual Restraining Order placed on them.  (There are actually seven deadly sins.  Those sins are: Wrath, Lust, Greed, Pride, Envy, Gluttony, and Sloth.  But for the purposes of this analysis, Gluttony [eating or consuming more than you really need] and Sloth [not working hard enough] will not be covered further because those sins are not the ones that result in spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people being issued Spiritual Restraining Orders).  

Below are the five deadly sins that can create problems for people who are spiritually and psychologically vulnerable:

    Wrath - Anger of a very strong and intense nature

    Lust  A very strong sexual desire

    Greed - Wanting to possess a lot more than you really need

    Pride - Possessing a lot more self esteem than is really necessary.  An                                        overestimation of your position in life, your talent, your looks, etc.  Finding               people who you consider to be beneath you to be disgusting.

    Envy - Wanting to have something that is possessed by another person.  Feeling               angry and resentful when you think about another person's success.

As discussed earlier, people who have normal spiritual abilities often have a lot of negative types of spiritual ideas cemented into their souls at an early age by the spiritual groups that they are born into.  They may have an inclination towards Wrath, Lust, Greed, Pride, and Envy from a very early age but as they get older they learn how to harness their spiritual energy and learn how to mask their more negative qualities with a surface personality that says to the world that they are a kind, good, and compassionate person.  The sins of Wrath, Lust, Greed, Pride, and Envy are not as destructive for a person with normal spiritual abilities as they are for a person who is spiritually and psychologically vulnerable.  The people who have normal spiritual abilities learn how to filter and control the subconscious spiritual messages they send out to other people that are composed of Wrath, Lust, Greed, Pride, and Envy.  Those people who have normal spiritual abilities are expected to have Wrath, Lust, Greed, Pride, and Envy and they are usually not issued Spiritual Restraining Orders for having those qualities (but people with normal spiritual abilities are sometimes issued real written restraining orders by real courts).

Spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people, like people with normal spiritual abilities, also have an inclination from an early age towards Wrath, Lust, Greed, Pride, and Envy.  As they get older they form relationships with people of the opposite sex and with people of their own sex.  Like with people who have normal spiritual abilities, their feelings of Wrath, Lust, Greed, Pride, and Envy become part of the basis for developing their early relationships with other people.  But while people of their own gender will start to develop successful relationships with members of the opposite sex, spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people are likely to meet with failed attempts at developing emotional closeness with members of the opposite sex.  When they fail to make an attachment with someone of the opposite sex it will be natural for them to try to get attached to someone else from the opposite sex who is different from the first person who they tried to bond with.  When the second attempt fails they may try to get involved with a third person of the opposite sex who is different from the first two.  By the time they reach adulthood they may have made failed attempts at romantic relationships with several different types of people from the opposite sex.  In adulthood, when people observe them with members of the opposite sex they may say that the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person has a problem with the destructive sin of Lust.  Their sexual desire may seem to be stronger than that of people with normal spiritual abilities because they will be attracted to so many different types of people of the opposite sex while most people will only be attracted to one or two types of people from the opposite sex.

In regards to their relationships with people of their own sex, spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people often appear to be guilty of four out of the five deadly (or destructive) sins listed above: Wrath, Greed, Pride, and Envy.  While people of their own sex with normal spiritual abilities will form fairly strong relationships with one or two types of people from their own sex who they are competing with early in life (and who they will therefore develop feelings of Wrath, Greed, Pride, and Envy with), people who are spiritually and psychologically vulnerable will (like with their relationships with members of the opposite sex) try to bond unsuccessfully with several different types of people from their own sex who they are competing with early in life (and who they will therefore develop feelings of Wrath, Greed, Pride, and Envy with).  For this reason, when in adulthood people observe them with members of their own sex, they may say that the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people seem to have a problem with the destructive sins of Wrath, Greed, Pride, and Envy (their "sins" will seem to be stronger than those of people of their own sex who have normal spiritual abilities because they are involved with so many different types of people from their own sex while most people of their own sex will only really be involved with one or two types of people of their own sex).  For this reason, the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person will be sending out more subconscious spiritual messages composed of Wrath, Greed, Pride, and Envy to more people than people who have normal spiritual abilities send out.  As they get older some members of their own sex may, like some members of the opposite sex do, start to send out subconsciously spiritual messages to the world (or to other people who they know) asking society to put a Spiritual Restraining Order on the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person.  Spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people often find themselves being slapped with Spiritual Restraining Orders both from members of the opposite sex and from members of their own sex. 

Spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people may have weaker levels of spiritual energy than do people with normal spiritual abilities, but they still project out to the world the same types of subconscious spiritual messages as do people who have normal spiritual abilities.  But while people with normal spiritual abilities do not really have a need to get rid of their Wrath, Lust, Greed, Pride, and Envy (because those personal traits do not interfere with their basic ability to function in the world), people who are spiritually and psychologically vulnerable have been burdened down with Spiritual Restraining Orders that will cause society to pump negative subconscious spiritual messages into their souls every time they send out feelings of Wrath, Greed, Lust, Pride, and Envy to other people.  While we all need a little bit of Wrath, Lust, Greed, Pride, and Envy in our lives, people who are spiritually and psychologically vulnerable would probably be able to get people to start sending them less negative subconscious spiritual messages (the punishment they receive when they violate the Spiritual Restraining Orders that have been placed on them) if they could learn to, with insight, start to cut back on the amount of subconscious spiritual messages they send out to other people that are composed of uncontrolled and unfiltered Wrath, Lust, Greed, Pride, and Envy.

For many years there has been a conflict between the church and the witches.  There has also been a conflict for many years between the church and the atheists.  This would indicate that there might be some similarities between the witches and the atheists.  While there certainly are some similarities between witches and atheists, there are also some important differences.

The witches like to keep their distance from the church.  They try to act as if the church does not have any power over them.  They feel that they can make their own rules and that they can create spiritual power on their own without the assistance of the church. 

The atheists will often acknowledge the existence of the church, but they get frustrated when people in the church say that atheists are cold, heartless people who have no morals.  They believe that they have at least as much compassion for other people as do people in the church.  In fact, they sometimes express the opinion that people in the church are cold and heartless because they are so critical, so defensive, and so non-accepting of anyone who has an opinion that questions one of their religious myths.

 

 

The witches seem to understand something that the atheists have trouble accepting.  The witches understand why atheists will never, no matter how hard they might try, become accepted by the people in the church.  The witches understand the complexities of spiritual power.  They know that spirituality is not a simple matter of people exchanging their subconscious spiritual thoughts and feelings with other people.  They have made discoveries such as the three-fold law where they learned that a spell that is cast on a person may have a ripple effect that has consequences that were not anticipated when the spell was originally cast.  The witches know that the people in the church have a greater awareness of the complexities of spiritual power than do the atheists, who in the opinion of the witches naively believe that they will be ok if just they try to be a good person and if they try to not hurt other people.

On the other hand, the atheists seem to understand something that the witches have trouble accepting.  The atheists understand why the witches will never, no matter how hard they might try, really become spiritually fulfilled by simply casting spells on other people (and by successfully defending themselves against black magic spells that are cast on them).  While the atheists don't seem to understand the very dynamic nature of spiritual power, they do understand that people who are a part of a spiritual group are often more fulfilled in their spiritual lives than are people who try to exercise spiritual power on their own.  The atheists know that anyone who tries to exercise spiritual power on their own (such as the witches) will eventually meet with frustration because of the nature of group dynamics.  They know that no matter how resourceful the witches might be, the group (or society) will eventually block the witches from developing the kind of spiritual fulfillment that they are seeking.

It might be useful for witches and atheists to consider that both of their groups (the witches and the atheists) may have trouble understanding the nature of the church and the power of the church.  At one time it was unthinkable to question the power of the church because of the external dangers that our societies were faced with at an earlier time in history.  There was a time in history when there was a very real danger that another country might invade your country and that you might be killed in the invasion or that you might have your property and your wealth taken away from you.  The church had a lot of power at that time because even if a person in the year 1850, for example, thought that religious myths might not be true, they believed that they (and the other members of society) would be personally safer from external dangers (like their country being invaded by another country) if people such as themselves did not question religious myths.  There may have been a lot of people at that time who kept their doubts about religious myths to themselves because they felt it was important for their country to be united and strong.

In our world today we are not as concerned as we were at one time about our individual countries needing to be united so that we can fight off an invasion from another country.  And that is probably one reason why more people today do not see any harm in questioning the myths upon which many of our religions are based.  But when people try to express their doubts about religious myths to people in the church they sometimes feel such a large rush of deep, dark, and very negative spiritual energy coming into them from the other person that they might start to wonder if maybe they were wrong and that God actually does exist. 

Why is it that people who question religious myths often feel the wrath of God coming into them from the church people who they are expressing their opinions to?  The answer to this question seems to be that the church people who they are expressing their opinions to are spiritually connected to other people who are similar to themselves.  These church people have developed spiritual structures and spiritual connections with other people who are similar to themselves that are based on a false foundation.  They know in their hearts that their spiritual power does not come from God.  They do not really believe the religious myths deep in their hearts.  They know that their spiritual power comes from exchanging spiritual energy with other people who are similar to themselves and that their spiritual power does not really come from God.  But they feel that there is some truth in saying that they believe in God because they know in their hearts that their spiritual connections with other people who are similar to themselves are so strong, so powerful, so complex, and so hard to understand, that in some ways their spiritual connections with other people are similar to what God was painted to be like in the myths.  And if their spiritual connections with other people are similar to God, then why not just say that it is God?

As the 21st Century began it was becoming clear to many people that society was becoming increasingly less tolerant of people who expressed opinions that questioned the authority of the church or people who tried to act like the church did not exist.  Anyone who questions the authority of the church (such as atheists) or anyone who tries to go down their own path spiritually choosing to ignore the church (like the witches) needs to realize that the people in the church may have a lot more going on spiritually than appears to be the case.  The witches should be careful when they laugh at the people in the church for their lack of spirituality.  The people in the church are a united and a well established spiritual force that exercises a lot of spiritual power in the name of God while knowing in their hearts that they are only exercising spiritual power for their own selfish personal objectives.  When a witch ignores the power of the church they may very well get a curse tossed at them by the people in the church that is larger in scope and that is more dynamic than any curse that they have ever experienced before.  And they need to realize that they may not be able to fight off and resist the power of that curse.  And atheists need to be aware that if they continue questioning the authority of the church without realizing how much spiritual power that the people in the church are capable of exercising, they too may get a curse tossed at them that they will not be able to fight off and resist.  Witches have some understanding of the complex and dynamic nature of spiritual forces, but atheists often have trouble understanding that spiritual energy not only gets exchanged between people, but also that spiritual power can be destructive in nature.  In making their attacks on God, some atheists may have forgotten that getting rid of the myth of God does not get rid of the spiritual power that is harnessed by the people who profess to believe in God.  The spiritual power that is exercised by these people is not something to laugh at.  If a large number of people unite spiritually and try to hurt you with a curse, they can hurt you a lot.  If they want to hurt you with a spiritual curse, and if you do not have the spiritual resources to fight off and resist that curse, they could do a lot of spiritual and physical damage to you.

Many people who are interested in things of a spiritual nature are impressed by the courage that the witches and the atheists have demonstrated.  These two groups have made great strides in helping everyone to become more aware of the nature of their spirituality.  But witches and atheists need to remember that when they criticize or ignore the church they are making a lot of people really mad.  And they should not be surprised if someday a large rush of very deep, very dark, and very negative spiritual energy comes rushing into them and knocks them out.  Witches and atheists have made great strides in helping us to understand some of the spiritual things in our world that are hard to understand, but they should perhaps consider that the spiritual power of the people in the church might be stronger and might be more complex than they can imagine and that those people in the church can hurt them and will try to hurt them if they question the authority of the church or if they try to act like the church does not exist.

 

 

Arguments such as the one made above that claim that people in the church today may actually be high-powered witches who exercise spiritual power for their own selfish benefit have been made before.  But somehow the people in the church have always managed to defend themselves against these types of arguments in spite of the evidence that the arguments are based on the truth.  One of the techniques the church has used to protect itself from the accusations that have been made against it is to exaggerate the accusations in such a way that the accusations are made to appear to be ridiculous.

You may have been in a church meeting where the pastor said something like "people in the world today say that those of us in the church are the worst sinners of all.  They argue that we exercise spiritual power in the name of God when we are actually just exercising spiritual power for our own selfish benefit.  Now, if that was true, then we certainly would be the worst sinners of all.  What could be worse than that?"

After making the above argument the pastor will usually not even try to answer the question that he or she had posed, which was "what could be worse than exercising spiritual power in the name of God when you are actually just exercising spiritual power for your own selfish benefit?"  Instead, they will say something like "we don't have to prove ourselves to the world.  We know in our hearts that we are good people and that we are spiritual people, and we know in our hearts that there are a lot of people in the world who are a worse than we are".  A nice prayer will be prayed, a nice song will be sung and almost everyone in the audience will feel spiritually energized.  But there might still be one or two people in the audience who will not feel spiritually energized and who will wonder what it was that they just experienced.

The one or two people in the audience who did not find the pastor's sermon uplifting were probably people who were spiritually and psychologically vulnerable.  Those people shivered inside when they heard the pastor say "what could be worse than exercising spiritual power in the name of God when you are actually exercising spiritual power for your own selfish benefit?"  They knew that the pastor and the congregation did believe that there was something worse than exercising spiritual power in the name of God when you are actually exercising spiritual power for your own selfish benefit.  The spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people knew that the church was under attack and that the people in the church were constantly trying to drag down people who were spiritually and psychologically vulnerable so that they could say to the world "you think that we are bad?  Look at those spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people.  They are really bad.  They are dangerous, they are scary, and they are evil." 

Spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people shiver inside when they hear sermons such as the one described above because they know that if the people in the church are looking for scapegoats to take the blame for the sins of the church, then those people in the church are going to try to hurt them every chance they get.  The more they can hurt the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people, the weaker those people will become.  And the weaker they become, the easier it will be for the people in the church to use them as scapegoats so that people do not think as much about the fact that people in the church today are in many ways just high-powered witches who exercise spiritual power in the name of God when they are actually just exercising spiritual power for their own personal benefit.

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.

In trying to understand why spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people have so much trouble breaking free from situations such as the one described above (where they are constantly being forced to absorb negative spiritual energy that should be going towards the people who made them into their personal spiritual slaves), it might be useful to look at how the spiritual structures of people who have normal spiritual abilities function. 

Most people have the ability to exercise a certain amount of spiritual control over other people.  Individuals who have normal spiritual structures are constantly influencing the thoughts and feelings of the people who they deal with and the people who they deal with are constantly influencing their thoughts and feelings.  Individuals who are blessed with strong spiritual abilities seem to be able to perform magic in their dealings with other people.  For example, a salesperson with strong spiritual abilities has the ability to (in a short period of time) take a prospect who is angry and defensive and turn that prospect into not only a customer but also a loyal and enthusiastic supporter of the product that the salesperson is selling.  When this happens it appears to people observing the situation that the salesperson is merging his or her mind and soul with the mind and soul of the customer and is, in some sort of magical spiritual fashion, forcing the customer to buy the product that the salesperson is selling.    

Spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people tend to have trouble in situations where they are supposed to take a skeptical and angry prospect and turn that prospect into a loyal and enthusiastic customer because they do not have strong enough spiritual abilities to perform spiritual magic when dealing with other people.  And no matter how hard they try to improve things, they never seem to be able to increase their spiritual power.  They may listen attentively when a successful salesperson tries to explain to them the secrets of the salesperson's success.  They know that they need to develop their spiritual powers if they want to become more successful in life.  But a spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person might run into a problem when they ask a successful salesperson what the secrets of their success are.  The salesperson knows that one of the main reasons for their success is their ability to overpower other people spiritually with their strong spiritual energy.  They know that they are merging their minds and souls with the customer's mind and soul and that they are using spiritual magic to get the customer to do what they want that customer to do.  But the successful salesperson who has strong spiritual abilities knows that they are dependent on spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people for a lot of their spiritual power and they do not want to lose this source of spiritual power that they are constantly tapping into.  For this reason, they are reluctant to tell the person seeking knowledge from them the true reasons for their success.  The salesperson might instead say something like "well, it's pretty much a matter of just working hard.  The breaks come to those salespeople who are always making contacts and who never stop working.  Basically, what I've found is that the harder I work, the luckier I get."

If the salesperson were to let down their guard and give a spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person the real reason for why they are successful, they would probably say something like the following: "In many ways life is a zero sum game.  When one person loses, it seems that another person wins.  And when it comes to things of a spiritual nature, the same rule applies.  If you lose your spiritual power, the person who took that spiritual power from you will receive that spiritual power and it will be theirs to use however they wish to use it.  Spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people tend to lose their spiritual power at a very early age.  Their spiritual energy is never really allowed to develop and other people are allowed to take advantage of them spiritually and psychologically and make them into their personal spiritual slaves.  Spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people are in this way forced to absorb the negative spiritual energy that is being directed towards the people who have made the vulnerable person into their spiritual slave.  The vulnerable people might 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.  But if they do get this psychological release 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 the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person into their spiritual slave is not happy about the new situation where they now 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 now 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.  I've seen what happens to people when one of the people who they have been using as a spiritual slave manages to, with insight, break free from their spiritual slavery.  The individual becomes very distressed because they now have negative spiritual energy coming into them that their spiritual slave had previously been absorbing for them.  The group sees what is happening and they put the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person into the role of an evil person and they force that person to go back into their old role where they are being forced to once again absorb the pressure that is being directed towards the person who has made the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person into their spiritual slave."

"When the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person I was observing at that time managed to, with insight, temporarily break away from being forced to absorb the negative spiritual energy coming into the person who had made them into a person slave, it appeared to me at that point that he had normal spiritual abilities.  Usually other people did not notice the vulnerable person's spiritual energy, but when he temporarily broke free from his spiritual slavery, it appeared that he was exercising spiritual power over the person who had made him into a personal slave.  But after he was forced back into the old situation by the group I did not notice any more strong (or even normal) displays of spiritual power coming from the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person.  I realized at that point that when he temporarily broke away from his spiritual slavery his spiritual energy levels did in fact increase.  But he was not really controlling other people spiritually like some of the people in the group thought was the case.  He had not put a curse on the person who had made him into a spiritual slave.  The vulnerable person, by getting out of the way (or out of the line of fire) of the negative spiritual energy that was being directed towards the person who had made him into a spiritual slave, created a situation where the negative spiritual energy that was originally supposed to go to the person who had made them into a personal spiritual slave started to be sent directly towards that person.  The curse (or negative spiritual energy) that the person who had made him their spiritual slave was complaining about was actually coming into them from one of their personal enemies, not from the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable person."

"Spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people who get involved in spiritual slavery early in life never really learn how to exercise spiritual power over other people and for that reason they tend to not be very good salespeople.  They tend to think of themselves as potentially becoming good salespeople because they can remember those periods that they have gone through in their lives ( similar to the one I just described) where they temporarily got free of their spiritual slavery and when for a short period of time other people viewed them as being people who were able to exercise spiritual control over other people.  Spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people need to realize that people such as myself who are good salespeople might feel sorry for people who are spiritually and psychologically vulnerable but we don't really want to help them to break free of their spiritual slavery.  If one of the people who I have taken spiritual power from (and who I have made into my spiritual slave) breaks free of their spiritual slavery, that is going to have a negative impact on my ability to perform spiritual magic when I try to sell things to other people.  I need the extra spiritual energy that I receive daily from the people who are my personal spiritual slaves and I need for them to continue absorbing the negative spiritual energy that is being directed towards me by my enemies."

"There have been times when spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people have asked me for the secrets of my success as a salesperson and I have purposely misled them into thinking that I thought they had what it takes to become a good salesperson.  I reminded them of the times in the past when they temporarily broke away from their spiritual slavery and suggested to them that they were only a step or two away from the spiritual empowerment that they were seeking.  But in reality, I knew that, just like an alcoholic cannot be cured of his or her problem until he or she recognizes that they have a problem, an individual who has been a spiritual slave since a very early age will never gain any sort of spiritual empowerment until they realize that they have never really had a sound and fully functional spiritual structure.  Spiritually and psychologically vulnerable individuals should realize that even though people like myself seem to be very confident, in order to maintain our high levels of spiritual power we need to have a constant source of spiritual power available to us.  And we need spiritual slaves to keep providing us with that spiritual power.  We will continue giving spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people false information and false hopes so that they will never be able to sit down and (with insight into the realities of their situation) figure out what they need to do to both break free from their spiritual slavery and stay free from their spiritual slavery.  You cannot solve your problem until you understand both the nature and the scope of your problem."

 

Eventually, cultures from throughout the world will probably start to move away from old fashioned practice of using other people as spiritual slaves.  Of course, it will take a while for this change to take place.  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.  Some people, such as the successful salesperson in the example above, might be reluctant to see the old way of doing things come to an end.  But everyone, those who serve as spiritual slaves and those who benefit from the use of spiritual slaves, will be better off when things eventually change if they can now start to learn more about the nature of spiritual slavery.

One night in the spring of 2008 a young man named Thomas, who had just returned to his home in Los Angeles from Chicago, was getting ready to meet his friend Jeffrey.  Thomas knew that Jeffrey had become depressed recently.  Thomas had a couple of hours before he was going to meet Jeffrey so he decided to get on his computer and go online to see if he could find an answer to Jeffrey's problems there.  After a few minutes he saw an ad for a psychic in India who was offering a free introductory session.  He entered his contact information and he entered some information about what he wanted to talk to the psychic about onto the website page where he saw the ad.  Soon there was a beeping sound from a call that was coming into the video chat program on his computer from the psychic in India .  When he answered the call he could see a woman with long dark hair on the right side of his screen and he could see himself on the left.  A very friendly voice said, "Hello, Thomas, I am Kala."  (Thomas and Kala are people who are real for the purposes of this story but who are not real in real life).

"Thomas", said Kala, "I can see from the information that you entered onto the website that you wanted to talk to me about some problems that your friend Jeffrey has been experiencing.  Would you like to start out by giving me some examples of the types of life situations that Jeffrey finds to be difficult?"  

"For the past three months", said Thomas, "I've been attending a college in Chicago.  Last night on the airplane coming home to Los Angeles from Chicago I spent over an hour talking about Jeffrey's problems with the pastor of a church in the Chicago area who happened to be sitting next to me.  When he introduced himself to me, he told me that I could call him Pastor Ron.  I'd like to tell you what I told Pastor Ron about Jeffrey and then I would like to relate to you Pastor Ron's observations about Jeffrey."

"Kala", said Thomas, "Let me start by talking about a summer job that Jeffrey had last year before he started his senior year of high school.  The boss at the place where Jeffrey was working did something very unfair to him.  He punished Jeffrey for no good logical reason.  Jeffrey also said that he could tell from sarcastic comments made to him by his coworkers that his boss had bragged to his coworkers about the unfair thing that he had done to Jeffrey.  As the days went by Jeffrey noticed that his boss was becoming a little bit more accepting of him.  He also noticed that some of the other employees who had been having trouble with a lack of motivation at their jobs were now doing better than they had done before.  Jeffrey realized then that when his boss treated him unfairly, it motivated the other employees.  But as soon as Jeffrey started to be comfortable in his new role as the person who was responsible for the improvement in the performance of the group, the other employees started to lose their motivation.  At this point his boss once again started treating Jeffrey unfairly."

"Then I gave Pastor Ron an example of what usually takes place when Jeffrey meets a girl who he likes.  Late last year, Jeffrey was getting to know a girl named Audrey.  One night he was talking to Audrey at a school activity and a boy in his class named Brent came over and broke into the conversation.  After his conversation with Audrey, where Brent broke into the conversation, Jeffrey noticed that Audrey seemed to be more reluctant to talk to him than she had been before.  Jeffrey said this same sort of thing had happened in the past when he tried to get to know other girls."

"In regards to Jeffrey being bullied by his boss, Pastor Ron felt that the other employees did not want Jeffrey to get any benefit from the bullying that he had experienced.  For this reason they did not like it when Jeffrey got credit for the improvement in the performance of the group.  Pastor Ron told me that he thought that Jeffrey's experience with Audrey and Brent was similar in some ways to what happened when Jeffrey was bullied by his boss.  As soon as Jeffrey got to know Audrey well enough so that other people were able to tell that Jeffrey was starting to exchange some spiritual energy with her, one of those people (in this case Brent) became unhappy and he tried to make sure that the relationship between Jeffrey and Audrey ended before it ever got started.  He interfered because he did not want Jeffrey's relationship with Audrey to become strong enough for Jeffrey to get any sort of benefit out of it."

"Pastor Ron then told me that he thinks that Jeffrey's problem with his boss at the summer job and his problem with Audrey and Brent were both indirectly based on guilt.  Pastor Ron then explained to me how some people who suffer from guilt may have had their guilt imposed upon them by other people.  He explained how when a family is going through a hard time (such as a death in the family or a financial set back) and a new family member comes along, there is a danger that some of the more aggressive and unkind members of the community that the family is involved in will start to put increased amounts of pressure on the family in an effort to hurt the family at a time when they are down and vulnerable.  When a family is pressured in this sort of a way and a new member is born into the family, there is a danger that the family will transfer the negative spiritual energy that is coming into them from the members of their community that are pressuring the family to the new family member."     

"When the family eventually realizes that the new family member (such as Jeffrey) is having trouble developing relationships with other people, they might decide to take some action to try to correct the situation.  For example, they might talk to the new family member about the pressure that the family was under at the time they were born in an effort to hopefully help them understand what might have led to their spiritual and emotional problems.  They might explain to the new family member how those pressures were so hard on the family that the other family members felt like they were about to fall apart emotionally.  The new family member might at this point feel bad that they caused these problems for their family.  The new family member might express to the other family members some feelings of guilt for the problems that they caused for the family and they might apologize for what happened."  

"After the new family member accepts part of the responsibility (and some feelings of guilt) for the circumstances that they were born into, there is a good chance that the other family members will start to feel increased negative spiritual energy (or pressure) coming into them at the same time that the new family member is starting to feel increased positive spiritual energy.  Now that the new family member is not being used as the scapegoat for the family's problems (because of the fact that they have accepted guilt for what happened), the other family members will start absorbing the pressure that the new family member had been absorbing for them.  The other family members might at this point decide that it would be better for them to not accept the apology of the new family member."

At this point Kala offered her interpretation of what might be happening to Jeffrey.  "Thomas, I agree for the most part with Pastor Ron's analysis of how Jeffrey may have had guilt imposed on him early in life.  When this sort of thing happens to a person they will get caught in an endless cycle where they go back and forth between feeling that they should feel guilty and feeling that they should not feel guilty.  If Jeffrey tried to apologize and to acknowledge some guilt for the extra pressure that his birth had put on his family and if his apology was rejected, it would be hard for him to accept the idea that he was a cold and heartless person who did not take responsibility for the problems that he had caused.  But Jeffrey needs to realize that he should be careful not to laugh at other people who feel guilt in their lives.  Jeffrey might not understand people who feel a lot of guilt, and he might think that they are too emotional.  But if Pastor Ron's analysis is correct, Jeffrey did try to go down the normal path where a person develops an emotional structure where feelings of guilt are normal.  If Jeffrey's apology would have been accepted by his family early in life, then he might have become just like those people who he might sometimes laugh at for having too much guilt."

 

 

"Kala", said Thomas, "last night after talking to Pastor Ron about Jeffrey's situation, I asked him about something that has always confused me.  I asked him how it could be possible for a person in a church meeting to speak in tongues (to speak in a language that they have never learned).  Pastor Ron told me that he thinks that we ourselves might be the mechanism for apparently supernatural phenomenon such as when people speak in tongues or when a sick person is delirious and they seem to be speaking to someone who is not in the room.  He believes that every person on earth communicates subconsciously with each other by exchanging spiritual energy through the Collective Subconscious." 

 

 

"In regards to speaking in tongues", Thomas continued, "Pastor Ron thinks it is possible that when this type of spiritual event occurs someone at a meeting in their office in Chicago might be communicating subconsciously (through the Collective Subconscious) with a person who is speaking in tongues in a church meeting in another city.  The person in Chicago might be providing feelings of comfort to that person who is speaking in tongues.  Another person who is in Eastern Europe might also be communicating subconsciously with the same person in the church meeting who is speaking in tongues.  This other person might be providing the foreign language component that is being used in this spiritual event.  Pastor Ron feels that there might be several people from different parts of the world participating in the spiritual event with none of them being consciously aware of their involvement in what is taking place.  And he also thinks that something similar might be happening in the Collective Subconscious when a person is sick or delirious and where they appear to be speaking to someone who is not in the room.  They may actually be talking to someone who is trying to comfort them through the Collective Subconscious."

 

"Then I told Pastor Ron that I knew that some people believe that when we die our souls remain in the Collective Subconscious and perform tasks such as helping people who are still living when they take part in spiritual events such as the ones that we had been discussing.  I told Pastor Ron that I thought that this would be a very cold and a very limited sort of an afterlife.  In answer to my comment, Pastor Ron explained to me that spiritual energy travels between us and other people so quickly that we are not consciously aware of it.  For this reason, it seems to us that the spiritual world is limited and non-fulfilling because we can only sense, or can only see, the spiritual world in a very limited sort of a way.  Pastor Ron believes that the spiritual things below the surface that we cannot see are probably very rich and very fulfilling."

Kala thought for a moment and then said "Thomas, I like very much Pastor Ron's ideas about the afterlife.  But I think that there are a lot of pastors and other church people in your country who would challenge the idea that there might be an afterlife where there is no Hell.  I personally do not believe that there is a Hell where people such as Jeffrey will burn for eternity, but I do think that in some ways the lives of people such as Jeffrey are similar to what Hell was pictured to be like in the Bible.  Hell was a place where people were tortured and where they had very little contact with other people.  It seems from what you have told me that Jeffrey is somewhat isolated from other people at the present time and I think it is likely that he will become even more isolated from other people as time goes on.  When people such as Jeffrey make a comment to a church person saying they don't think that Hell exists, the church person probably walks away laughing because it appears to them that the person who just told them that Hell does not exist is actually living in Hell and they don't even know it." 

"Thomas", said Kala, "I know that some people in your country might say that their Jesus would never send anyone to Hell.  Other people in your country might say that their Jesus would not hesitate for a moment to send people to Hell and that their Jesus will someday come back to the earth to lead an army in an attempt to destroy the enemies of the church.  In recent years it seems that a new Jesus has been created.  The spiritual entity of the original Jesus (which is the combined spiritual energy of all the people who believe in the original Jesus) is still alive.  The spiritual entity of the original Jesus (Jesus Number One) is loving, compassionate, and forgiving.  The spiritual entity of the new Jesus that has been created (Jesus Number Two) is the combined spiritual energy of all of the people who seem to take pleasure in being cruel to people who are weak and who are eager to send other people to Hell."

 

 

"Thomas", continued Kala, "people such as Jeffrey sometimes forget that getting rid of the myth of God does not get rid of the spiritual power that is harnessed by the people who profess to believe in God.  The spiritual power that is exercised by the people who believe in Jesus Number Two (and who picture their Jesus as being a warrior) is not something to laugh at.  If a large number of people unite into a powerful spiritual entity and if they try to hurt you spiritually, and if you do not have the spiritual resources to fight off and resist them, they could do a lot of spiritual and emotional damage to you by sending large amounts of negative spiritual energy into you.  Jeffrey needs to have a healthy fear of the people who believe in Jesus Number Two.  He also needs to remember that a lot of the people who profess to believe in Jesus Number Two are the same types of people who will often act like they care about vulnerable people such as Jeffrey just enough so that the vulnerable person will mistakenly trust them and give them information that will allow them to work against the vulnerable person rather than trying to make him become stronger."

"Whenever a group places a person in the position of the scapegoat (such as in Jeffrey's case), the one who is the scapegoat starts contributing spiritual energy to the other members of the group.  The ones who dominate the scapegoat through the years care about them deeply because of what the scapegoat does to help strengthen the group, not because they want the scapegoat to become stronger.  They might at times ask the scapegoat what he needs in order to become stronger.  But when the scapegoat tells them what he needs to become stronger, they will make absolutely certain that he never receives whatever it is that will make him stronger.  They may sometimes feel bad when they watch the scapegoat struggle in life, but they like the end result.  When the boss at the summer job in your example felt that he had to pressure Jeffrey to motivate the other employees, he might have actually felt bad about what he did (and Jeffrey might have sensed that his boss felt bad when he mistreated Jeffrey).  But the boss was happy about the end result because mistreating Jeffrey motivated the other employees.  And when Audrey in your example realized that Brent would be happier if she stopped spending time with Jeffrey, she might have felt bad when she saw how disappointed and confused Jeffrey was about what had happened.  But she was happy about the end result because by preventing Jeffrey from becoming stronger, Brent and the other group members were allowed to continue holding on to spiritual energy that they would have lost if Audrey would have allowed Jeffrey to become stronger."

"Thomas", continued Kala, "in previous centuries when science was much less developed than it is today, people had faith that spiritual energy was being exchanged between themselves and other people according to the spiritual models provided by the Bible and by other religious writings.  That faith made people feel their spirituality more strongly in previous centuries than they do today  Because of the fact that people today do not really believe in their spiritual models (the religious myths), they are only able to feel their spirituality in a strong way when they steal spiritual energy from other people."

"You may have heard that there are countries in the world today where spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people are treated worse than people such as Jeffrey are treated in your country.  In some countries the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people are pretty much just ignored and isolated.  I believe that there is a similarity between the situations of spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people in your country such as Jeffrey and the situations of the spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people who live in countries where they are pretty much ignored.  There are very few people in any of the countries of the world today who still believe (way down deep in their hearts) in the myths that the various religions in the world are based upon.  And because of this lack of faith caused by people not really believing that they exchange spiritual energy with each other, people throughout the world today have less spiritual energy than they had in the past.  For this reason, things have become worse in recent years for the individuals throughout the world who are spiritually and psychologically vulnerable.  Those people have had increasing amounts of their spiritual energy taken from them and that spiritual energy has been given to the people who have lost their spiritual energy as a result of losing their faith.  Thomas, until the world can come up with a better spiritual model for understanding spiritual forces than the spiritual models (the religious myths) that we have today, things are going to become increasingly difficult for people such as Jeffrey who are spiritually and psychologically vulnerable."

One night in the spring of 2008 a young man named Dan, who had lived in Chicago for several years, was enjoying a late dinner at his favorite pizza restaurant with his friend Thomas.  Thomas, who was a student at a college in Chicago, had returned to Chicago the day before from Los Angeles where he had spent his spring break with his family.  (Dan and Thomas are people who are real for the purposes of this story but who are not real in real life).

After Dan and Thomas had placed their orders Dan said, "Thomas, I remember that a couple of weeks ago, before you went back to Los Angeles for spring break, you told me that you were concerned about your friend Jeffrey who had become depressed recently.  You said that you were trying to figure out what to say to Jeffrey to make him feel better when you got back to Los Angeles .  I was wondering if you were able to give Jeffrey some good insights into his problems?"

"Well", said Thomas, "I started out by telling Jeffrey that I believe 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.  I explained to him 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.  I explained to him 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).  I explained to Jeffrey that I believe that people such as him 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."

"My conversation with Jeffrey took place at a restaurant in Los Angeles that I like very much where one of the waitresses is a girl who I know named Amber.  Amber had told me about how last summer she got involved with a guy who was spiritually and psychologically vulnerable like Jeffrey so I asked her come over to our 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 our table to help some of the other customers Jeffrey commented to me that he could feel some very positive energy being exchanged between me and Amber.  He asked me why I had never gotten involved romantically with Amber.  In answer to Jeffrey's question about me and Amber I explained to him 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.  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).  The salesperson knows how to use spiritual links to influence the client's thinking at that important point where the client might be tempted to back out of the deal.  Then I explained to Jeffrey that what I think is happening between me and Amber is that I am merging the practical part of my soul with her and she is merging the practical part of her soul with me.  So even though the exchanges of spiritual energy between us are positive, those exchanges of spiritual energy are not a good basis for developing a serious relationship."  

Thomas thought for a moment and then continued, "At this point in my conversation with Jeffrey he told me that he knew that salespeople were often very influential in guiding the thinking of their customers when they were trying to sell their customers something, but he said that he didn't really understand how salespeople work their magic."

"I then explained to Jeffrey my theory about how salespeople are able to guide the thinking of their customer in a manner that sometimes seems to be magical.  I told him I believe that salespeople will, for a short period of time, merge a part of their soul with the soul of their customer.  They merge the part of their soul that is practical with the part of the customer's soul that is practical.  It might seem to the customer that the salesperson is reading their mind when the customer purchases a product that they had not planned to buy when they started talking to the salesperson.  When the salesperson opens up the practical part of their soul to the customer, they are not only guiding the customer with what they are saying to the customer but they are also guiding the customer in a very deep sort of a manner that they don't really understand but that they know is effective.  Then I gave Jeffrey an example situation to explain what happens when a salesperson allows their customer to use their soul when they are trying to help the customer to make a decision.  I explained that if two individuals go into a car dealership and test drive a new car, one of the individuals might take the car out in the country or out on the freeway to see how fast it will go.  Another person might use the car to pick up their kids after school.  When they come back and the salesperson realizes that the test drive has helped the customer to overcome the doubts that they originally had, the salesperson will be happy with the end result, but they will not know where the customer went on their test drive.  The difference between a salesperson allowing a customer to test drive a car and a salesperson allowing a customer to test drive their soul (by merging the practical part of their soul with the practical part of the customer's soul) is that when a salesperson lets a customer test drive a car they will have no idea where the customer took the car.  But when a salesperson lets a customer test drive their soul, the salesperson might know at a deep subconscious level what the customer had been thinking during the period of time when the salesperson had merged their soul with the soul of the customer."

"Then", continued Thomas, "I brought up once again the example that I had given Jeffrey about a high school girl merging the practical side of her soul with her fellow students for the purpose of getting votes in an election.  I explained to Jeffrey that when she does this she will notice that one of three things might happen.  First, the student might not vote for her and she will have wasted her effort in merging the practical side of her soul with that student. Second, the student might vote for her and her effort will not have been wasted.  Third, a spiritually and psychologically vulnerable guy in her class who had previously been a casual friend might start to think that there was a basis for him to develop a serious relationship with her.  I explained to Jeffrey that it is my belief that many spiritually and psychologically vulnerable people only develop a practical set of emotions and that is why they might 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."

"At this point Jeffrey asked me 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 I gave him another example.  I asked him to imagine that he got to know a girl named Vanessa who merged the practical side of her soul with him 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.  I 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 I 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.  I explained to Jeffrey that it was my belief that during the time that he 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 explaining my ideas about spiritual energy to Jeffrey he told me he thought that my ideas about people communicating subconsciously through the Collective Subconscious made 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 me 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.  Jeffrey then said that he is not the type of person who would want to barge in on someone uninvited when they are at home at night after a long day of work.  But by Jeffrey trying to form a strong relationship with a girl who is only merging the practical part of her soul with him (the part of her soul that she usually only uses for work situations), he realizes that he might be getting her to think about him more than she would like to think about him during her free time when she is not supposed to have to think about things that are related to work.  He realized that even though he does not verbally say things to girls that might make them feel uncomfortable, his subconscious mind might be making suggestions to their subconscious minds that they consider to be inappropriate due to the fact that the girl is only merging the practical side of her soul with him."

After Thomas had finished telling Dan about the conversation that he had with Jeffrey the previous week, Dan thought for a moment and then said, "Thomas, as you know from our conversations over the past few months, Jeffrey is not your only friend who is spiritually and psychologically vulnerable.  I have fought many of the same battles that Jeffrey has fought.  I like Jeffrey's ideas about realizing that his subconscious mind is communicating with the subconscious minds of the girls who he meets and that this below the surface communication between Jeffrey and the girls who he meets might be making them feel uncomfortable.  But having tried to do variations of what Jeffrey is suggesting where his subconscious mind tries to subconsciously apologize to the subconscious minds of the girls who he meets for coming on too strongly, I'm afraid I have to say that I don't think that is going to totally solve the problem.  I think that Jeffrey has to go further and not only change the way that his subconscious mind communicates with the subconscious minds of the girls who he knows, but Jeffrey also has to change the way that his subconscious mind communicates with the subconscious minds of the guys who he knows."

"Thomas", continued Dan, "we 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, 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.  They might at times ask the spiritual slave what he needs in order to become stronger.  But when the spiritual slave tells them what he needs to become stronger, they will make absolutely certain that the spiritual slave never receives whatever it is that will make them stronger.  Thomas, you mentioned earlier how Jeffrey thought there might be a basis for you and Amber, the waitress who you mentioned, to have a serious relationship.  You said that both you and Amber were only merging the practical parts of your souls with each other.  You knew that was not a good basis for developing a serious relationship.  It is my opinion, Thomas, that the guys who try to dominate spiritual slaves such as Jeffrey and myself know for certain, just like you know 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 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.  They do not want us to make a change that might make us stronger.  This 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.  We are suspicious because we know that the guys who are dominating us do not really believe that it is possible for a guy to develop a serious relationship with a girl who is only merging the practical part of her soul with him."    

"Thomas", continued Dan, "I know that right now you might be thinking that while in theory it makes sense for Jeffrey and myself to try to spiritually overpower the subconscious minds of the people who are dominating us, it will be hard for us to actually make this happen.  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.  I think that in order for people such as Jeffrey and myself to avoid being overpowered spiritually by the people who are dominating us spiritually, it is important for us to come up with a framework for understanding (and for believing in) spiritual energy exchanges.  I think that Jeffrey and I should maybe come up with a variation of Pascal's Wager."

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

 

 

"As usual, Thomas", replied Dan, "I think that you understand this issue very well.  My subconscious mind has trouble communicating to the subconscious mind of someone who is bullying me subconsciously that they should stop what they are doing because the other person knows that I am weaker spiritually than they are and that I do not really believe at a deep level that people exchange spiritual energy through the Collective Subconscious.  But if I let them know that I choose to believe that people exchange spiritual energy through the Collective Subconscious because that is a better bet (or wager) for me to make than not believing that people exchange spiritual energy through the Collective Subconscious, then I might be able to 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."
