Recently I wrote a facebook update about me witnessing on a metro a drunk man telling to all passengers that government keeps raising taxes so all is left to do is drink.
One lady in her comment expressed her sadness and a wish to help people like that.
I learnt over and over again that every time I try to help a person like this, neither that person, nor I benefit. It’s a total waste of time to do this – I learnt this the hard way – and I no longer give out my guidance to those that look in need of it.
Why some people can’t be helped
Compassion is awakening in the Western world, and thus people naturally gravitate towards those who look hurt or unlucky. But tell me from your own experience, what happens when you, for example, get into a relationship with a person burdened by many problems?
Usually you end up hurt or fail to help your partner. At first, you kind of see yourself as a hero who would take that person out of their miserable existence, but that almost never happens.
You cannot help those who don’t want to be helped. It’s a strange thing for sure, but some people really enjoy wallowing in their misery. It’s only when the “unlucky” person decides he had enough of it, that he can become open to external help or help himself. Surely not before that.
What about starving children in Africa, you might ask. First, you should know that souls incarnating in those bodies chose perfect environments to further their evolution. It’s not a coincidence that someone is born in a wealthy and loving family, whilst some get abandoned and then get adopted by cruel people. They incarnated in such circumstances for a reason, and they will surely get to better circumstances in this life or the ones to come, when poverty, dependence, or some other lesson, is learnt.
Know also that sometimes wise souls choose to incarnate in wretched bodies or wretched surroundings to teach those around them a lesson. Such incarnated being is a blessing indeed, because she causes change in those who otherwise would not wake up in their lifetimes.
For people who don’t acknowledge anything but matter, and who are really stuck in life, it takes much self examination and faith to awaken their souls from deep slumber, and start rising in life.
Many people are indeed creatures of environments, because it’s the path of least resistance. It’s not being in the flow of life, please don’t confuse this with that, but it’s being passive in your self expression, and thus life takes you wherever the stars on your chart point you to.
Why sometimes many problems come at the same time
People who don’t give up in trying to achieve higher life, soon start having more energy for that. That’s because they awaken the life within, which was dormant because of soul-killing activities they used to engage in. Answers start coming quicker, miracles seem to happen and they get into the flow of life.
If many obstacles come your way, know that firstly these lessons need to be learnt before you can move on to greater things. Life is trying to help you, since it knows your wish to succeed. Therefore, life tries to give you as many things to overcome as there are on your path, so that you would get to success quicker.
However, many people don’t see obstacles as help, because they can’t rise above their current circumstances to see the reason hurdles are there.
Every difficulty we experience, therefore, must be seen as a lesson. The quicker we learn the lesson, the quicker difficulties of that kind would leave us alone.
The more earthly lessons we learn, the finer lessons we get, which can be as hard. Those who overcome poverty and rise to great abundance, for example, can be faced with the emptiness of their life, which would encourage them to take up teachings about the soul.
The hard-to-learn money problem
The biggest stumbling block for Westerners at this time is money. Vast majority of people are true slaves for this printed paper and metal coins. Money should be mastered in this world, I’m afraid; there’s no other way round this issue. If you give up on it, the lesson won’t disappear from your life. It will patiently and surely wait for you at the next corner favorable for its expression.
In a London financial gathering I recently attended to meet old friends, there was a guy who was new to the group. He was obviously struggling in life, and a very wealthy and successful businessman tried to explain to him the workings of the Universe and the Law of Attraction.
Instead of listening meekly and being grateful for the teachings received, he crossed his arms on chest and told that LOA was nonsense and that he had his own strategy to succeed. His strategy didn’t work so far because he was just “unlucky”.
Such a guy is not yet ready to move on in life and to become abundant. He’s blocking outside help, because he’s not yet ready to help himself. He will be stuck in his unpleasant circumstances as long as it’s necessary for him to be finally awakened to the reality of his problem.
Perceive money problem as a lesson you must learn to master your life and be in control of your destiny. See it as a game; when you win it, it will forever leave you in peace and open the doors for better things to come. When you learn how to make money and how to control your expenses, you will never have this hurdle in your path again.
Start reading financial books. Understand money – it has a philosophy. Then, and only then, money will become an ever-ready-to-help friend, and not a powerful enemy it was before.
There are more problems, of course, facing Westerners at this time. Whatever they are, they all need to be perceived as lessons which try to get your attention so that you would learn them quickly and move on to something better.
There are absolutely no mistakes in this Universe, although we sometimes perceive life’s lessons as mistakes. Life is the ultimate perfection and life is really Go(o)d.
People don’t suffer because they’re unlucky. They suffer because they fail to learn the lessons that they must learn in order to evolve and move on.
God is fair to the extreme, it makes no mistakes and gives to every incarnated soul experiences it must go through in order to blossom.
Finally, here’s another post I wrote that people found very helpful in understanding why they’re stuck and how to change their surroundings: Your Surroundings Reflect Your Vibration.
