Let’s say that you believe that intention is cause. This is reasonably easy to validate and there are even exercises that can prove this to you by bringing your cause level up to a point where you can intend something to happen and it will happen.
These exercises work when the persons working with you intend for you to increase your cause level. These exercises fail when those coaching you intend you to fail and go away in defeat.
Lets test the assumption that intention is cause. Think of the last success you had. Did you intend that to happen? Were other people intending you to be successful? Was anyone protesting your success?
I think you will find that every success you have enjoyed was easy to the extent that there were no counter intentions to that success.
I think you will also find that every failure was accompanied by negative postulates from others and by your own doubts and reservations.
This is what I have observed from hundreds of sessions and in 80 plus years of personal experience:
WE KEEP POSTULATING OUR FUTURE INTO EXISTENCE
OUR POSTULATES AFFECT OTHERS AND THEIR POSTULATES AFFECT US
The future is the summed postulates of all beings participating in that future. This makes prediction tricky doesn’t it?
Unless you use your psychic abilities intelligently and observe all intersecting intentions without flinching.
Suppose you were to use caring communication on those who are postulating your failure? Do you think you might be able to postulate a success that they could share in? If you can’t envision a future where you can both benefit, you are postulating a zero sum game and one of you will lose if the other wins. You can almost see that you are postulating mutual destruction and I think you might remember how those kind of contests end.
If you want a future to happen, try making it a future where everyone associated with you wins. I think you will find that you will be far more successful and you will end up with many new friends instead of opponents.
I see there is more to write about using this viewpoint, so I will leave off here and let you exercise your imagination as to how you can include others in your future success.
I think you now have the answer to the problem I posed in the title to this article. This will be continued.
Let me know if anything interesting occurs in the meantime.
