Say six billion people agree that putting your hands, and other extremities, into a guillotine is okay and are doing it to chop off fingers and toes! They have passed legislation to make it legal to do so. Would i do it? No, i think I’d pass on that.
Just because everyone else is doing something doesn’t mean that it’s RIGHT! It just means that a lot of people are doing it. Do we choose to live our lives by consensus or by the spiritual laws of the universe? I choose to follow the spiritual laws. You are free to do what you want, but if two wrongs don’t make a right how can 6 billion wrongs make a right? It can’t.
Contrarian thinking states that if everyone is doing something it makes contrarian sense to do the opposite as when “everybody” is doing something it is usually wrong, There are people who maker fortunes with contrarian thinking – Mr Buffet for a start. Not that they use contrarian thinking all the time – they use it judicially to find out the truth of the situation. If everyone is doing A is A necessarily the truth? Contrarian thinking is a touchstone, a tool, to the truth, not a formula for living. Find the Truth and the Truth will set you Free. (who said that? Oh, just some minor Jewish radical in the first century – take no notice of Him!)
There are dozens of contrarian examples. I’ll look at just two – (1) the 1932 stock market crash and (2) the rise of Nazism
(1) the stock market crash of 1932 caused people to lose 86% of their investment value. 86%!!! As most people in the stock market at that stage with using borrowed money to invest with, that meant that their investments were worth a lot less than their liabilities to the banks. This is the fundamental reason for the pain experienced after the crash. The “easy money” gotten to buy shares had driven them up to a ridiculous high and a crash was inevitable. However the loans were still due and at high interest rates too! So that is where the pain was caused in American society because nearly “everyone” was doing it! Very few families were unaffected!
(2) the nazi regime got a hold f power by unfair means and then got access to the youth of Germany and trained them up to be real nazis! The first thing they got rid of was all the real, the spiritual, thinkers who would oppose them. Then once they were gone, they got rid of all the people in authority and replaced them with nazi party officials. so they worked on a two pronged front. Get rid of all the free thinkers and replace them with party line thinkers and then set to indoctrinating the youth (who have everything, except wisdom!). From there you have a perfect killing machine and no physical laws in Germany to stop them!. Contrarian thinkers were amongst the first to go in nazi Germany. The Germans of today are not responsible for this history, but are responsible to keep it alive in their memory lest it happen again!
So the Truth must be decided by the individual – not by the masses!
Rosa Parks was just a tired black lady who was a member of a church in the southern states who refused to move when told to (move to the “black” section of the bus!). Has history recorded the name of the person who told her to do this? No that non-entity is now long forgotten by history. Instead it remembers the name of the lady who stood up to the bully and refused to move! This is what history judges us on – did we do the right thing when confronted with an untruth? It is history that judges us, not our friends, neighbours and associates who agree so strongly with us now – “it must be right because everyone is doing it!”
You have to make decisions in your life, many small ones and a couple of big ones. How you handle the many small ones basically decides how you handle the big ones! If your many small decisions are based in untruth then it is likely that you big decisions will based on untruths too. If your many small decisions are based in the Truth then more than likely your big decisions will be based on the Truth as well. Why is this? Because of the law of inertia – which is also known as the first law of Motion (movement) which states that, “an object not subject to any net external force moves at a constant velocity. Thus, an object will continue moving at its current velocity until some force causes its speed or direction to change.” Put another way, “Nothing changes until something changes!”
Humans are creatures of habit. Unless something (a habit) changes within us we will continue on the same path we are on indefinitely! Or until the pain of circumstances of staying the same are greater than the pain of changing. That is human inertia.
Human inertia is described in the saying, “Stupidity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results!”
So what caused me to change (for the better?) I went down the ladder of unhappiness through discontent, through depression to the very edge of self-destruction. At that point I had nothing to lose, so i asked for the whole truth of Life and received it! I was “reborn” into the spiritual circumstances of life (not the religious).
What I am saying to you today is this – there is a different path to the one you’re probably on (those of you already reborn know this to be true) that leads to freedom of a universal kind. This Freedom then leads to freedom on the metaphysical and then the physical plane (note the order) The universal system of Freedom always starts at the top and works down, as opposed to the physical system which tries to start at the bottom and work it’s way up (but can’t because the spiritual entrance is blocked! Lol!)
The fact that spiritual law is binding, and yet freeing, in it’s operation is contrary to physical thinking and so most people never even see the entrance to the spiritual world! Which is why there is so much corruption in religion, politics, business etc because they have no foundation on spiritual law! I can effectively raise a businesses turnover by at least 50% in six months by applying spiritual laws to it. If fact i have done so several times in the past. Not because i am smart but because the laws say , “if you do this, this and this then that, that and that will happen!” And, because they are spiritual laws, they always work!
Physical laws work for a time and then reach the limit of their useful life time. How many car drivers still drive at 4 miles per hour? That was a physical law and it’s time went very quickly. How many people get Wealthy by being Poor? Every Wealthy person in the world! (note Wealthy, not rich).Because wealth is a spiritual state and the first level of wealth is to be Poor!
Spiritual law always works – you’ll find the same advice given to the rich man (to Gift his possessions to the Poor) are still the same today! Compare to the economic level of 2,000 years ago the middle classes of today are all rich! And there have been another three messengers from God since then so the laws have been refined in their implementation by Spiritual Knowledge (Water)!
All i can say is this – if you are trying to get rich, forget about it! Because being rich is only the accumulation of money and seldom leads to permanent happiness! Yes, it leads to temporary happiness in the early days but after a while our lives become rich and miserable. Getting wealthy, on the other hand leads to long term happiness! Yes we don’t see the manifestation of money for a lot longer than being rich, but we learn detachment from money and things and are grateful for what we have right now, no matter how little because we know that more is to come on top of the happiness we have now!
Put another way the rich get rich expecting happiness to manifest by itself once they are rich! BUZZZ! Doesn’t happen! (I know form experience!)
The wealthy get HAPPY first and know that things will improve on the physical level as they follow the laws of gifting , just like a farmer that plants a crop of seeds knows that they are going to reap a crop of food! That is the difference between riches and wealth – one is a state of illusion, of poverty and the other is a state of BEingness!
If you are tired of the physical rat race you live in and want better for yourself and your family then ask to BE shown the source of truth (the knowable essence of God – I Am). It’s as simple as asking (out aloud!) Or writing it down as a goal! Either way will revela the truth to you. And from there you can go to BEing FREE!
May Love, Detachment, Health, Happiness, Peace, Success and Prosperity BE yours,
