Some people tell us that, in front of an alleged spiritual evolution, there is also a certain sense of isolation, a difficulty to "fit" in the usual molds. I believe that, for itself, spiritual evolution is a paradox - its movement is part of both the differentiation and the union. At the same time we strengthen our individuality, which subtracts the longing for external acceptance, we also seek for the other - not to take something (affection, attention, recognition), but to stimulate us, hence the stage of duality.
The work of self-knowledge shows us that life is composed of a single fabric, of a miraculous set of relationships, and any effect generated on this fabric affects all of us - there is no way to isolate. However, while life is a unique set, the evolution of the strengthening of individual being - it is not possible to delegate our journey. There lies the paradox!
Our fundamental work is to seek individuality and, from that, develop a relationship of interdependence, where I bond with another because I want, and not because I need to. This is why spiritual evolution brings us a sense of isolation and union at the same time - by looking at ourselves, we evolve and learn about the other. In Short, this walk is about how to spiritualize the matter and materialize the spirit.
Fear makes people act irrational, and then they are easier controlled, willingly giving up freedom, rights, and so forth. It activates the reptilian brain of pure physical survival instinct (this relates to the dark side of the “prepper mind” as well which may attract that which one is “prepping” for if coming from a place of fear, i.e. self-fulfilling prophecy.
It’s easier to mind control people when they are in a state of fear. People then also start to police each other and keep each other in check. They can even become afraid of each other because of fear. They turn into authoritarian followers to the extreme, following all orders, laws, and rules without questioning driven by fear.
So, to where this nature of events is leading to, yet remains to be seen. A lot is happening on unseen levels and I’m not the person to project either Fear or Hope into the future, the two opposites of the same coin, and both are mind traps.
One thing I discovered about illnesses is that, besides fear drawing it in, anything that programs the subconscious will do so. Several times now I’ve gotten sick after looking at a photo of a virus and innocently dwelling on it in a daydreaming kind of way. The alpha brainwave state is very suggestible that way. It’s like a hypnotic command. That’s the exact formula the Manifesting / Secret / YCYOR people use. Occultists say it creates a thought-form that manifests into physical reality, psychologists would say it’s a form of autosuggestion. Either way, it shows that fear isn’t the only thing that can draw something in.
Another form is saturation. If you’re reading certain news and forums virtually every hour of your waking life, you’re saturating your mind and plugging into the energy field of others doing likewise, and the whole thing starts unnecessarily bleeding over into your personal corner of reality. Same with getting obsessed with any other topic.
Ironically, the feeling of vulnerability from not being prepared can draw something in if the fear takes on a life of its own (literally), while the peace of mind from having basic security in place can attract more peace and security.
And lastly, another opening can come from severe stress / deep emotional wounds that lead to symbolic illness. The solution isn’t denial, but being informed enough to take rational action while, on the energetic/subconscious front, staying focused on ideals like peace, wellness, and empowerment.
