daniel wrote: LoneBear was mentioning that the other day, as to how "bad luck" seems to be defying probability. Randomness should result in a 50/50 split between good and bad fortune, but lately, most people that have any kind of spiritual drive seem to be experiencing 99 44/100% bad luck, whereas the muggles go blindly on without problem. Something has changed, but I have not yet figured out what. But it does appear to be associated with shen bioenergy.
I have a few theories to explore on this:
1. Those with spiritual drive have the strength to carry some collective "karma", or paying off some bad karma of others, so that our race as a whole can take a step forward spiritually. If we didn't do this, helping to carry some load, we might not collectively as a race be able to take a step forward. This might've been by agreement on an unconscious level that we would do this service for humanity. If we all (those with spiritual drive) carry a little extra, then the whole consciousness can hike a bit higher up.
2. I know most of you here frown upon the idea of a coordinated malevolent force on this planet, but its a possibility that such a force (if it exists) is trying to weaken those that can do something about the flow of time, the collective conscious, and the future of our race. Perhaps those with spiritual drive carry more power and if their mood / vibrations are pushed into a negative direction, it will create a powerful pull that oppresses the rest of the human collective downward even more powerfully - since those without spiritual drive might not contribute as much to the force of change in the collective as those WITH spiritual drive.
3. I'm not sure I understand the connection with shen bioenergy unless it has something to do with trying to impede our generation of it - or perhaps that difficult circumstances encourages the necessary transformation that ignites the generation of it where there were little or none before?
What are your thoughts on the above daniel?
This has been my life. What do you do if you are a positive person that has negative things happen to you all the time?
I can relate to that one, for sure, meaghan. I wonder if we are programmed to punish ourselves if we buck the system. If we don't pledge a path of "service" to marketing, the medical industry, engineering, sales or other such socially acceptable careers, or more importantly if our attitudes are too individualistic, society starts a labeling process real quick. All of a sudden, it dawns on you that behind all the smiling faces, there is nothing but judgement coming from the pack because we are being "bad." Then we have our inner devils to overcome that have been pre-programmed in that tell us to go along to get along.
Another thought is that if we are consciously pursuing living a spiritual life and building shen bioenergy, in a way we are rejecting the things of this world in favor of something we can feel but can't see. I think one of the many ways studying the RS is helping me is that now I see the "Other Side" as an aspect of the same physical Universe we are walking around in with our bodies, so there is no choice to be made. We don't have to reject material things simply because we are also looking for temporal things. Both go hand in hand.
Those inner devils / pre-progammed conditioning you mention - interesting thing to explore that. Perhaps by showing people an alternative to those pre-programmed ways of doing things, we help them break free of them by giving them a choice, where they did not know there was a choice before-hand. Many will choose the familiar suffering over the unknown or unfamiliar opportunities and possibilities - fear is a powerful motivator - but some are already desperate enough to try any alternative - if they can find one.
Sometimes being individualistic is good for provoking others into something other than complacency or herd-mentality, but we also need practical tools, or plans, or methods, for doing things differently. If we carry a solution in terms of thinking and living differently, can we transfer that understanding, or that ability? Or do their judgement of our way of being overwhelm us because we have no answer, or no way of transferring that understanding or ability, or worse yet - no real solution - and perhaps this makes us question ourselves?
I like to try different things as solutions - not only for my own growth in understanding - but also to develop language and tools to help others learn and apply things that WORK. I know there's a big frown in this community on channeled material or content coming from channelers - but I would suggest trying some of the practical stuff that guys like Bashar and Abraham Hicks talk about. I'm talking about the youtube videos you can easily access. I've gotten good results and good tools out of those that help me a lot in dealing with inner stuff and creating change in my circumstances. It has helped me develop such language and tools to help others take leaps in their understanding as well.
As a result, I've seen less and less of the bad stuff and more and more of the good stuff. Problem-based thinking started changing into solutions-based thinking. When someone says "can't" I say "there is no can't, how CAN we?", and I've yet to meet a situation where together we couldn't think of some realistically possible options.
We do have purpose. Our purpose is to be transformative. Agents of transformation. That means, pain, death of old ways of thinking, change, criticism, rejection, emotional agony - and it will result in beauty, freedom, rapport, ecstasy, and a better world. Part of this process is showing people what IS - and if they don't like the picture, they will want to shoot the messenger, but at least they're expressing that they don't like what IS and want something different. Let's show them that "something different" they are looking for.
