Life can bring out the most in you and those one attracts to you!

Even really positive relationships can be quite challenging since one has to invest an awful lot of oneself into them to get the most out of them for both parties involved. . It is the challenging side of life that helps us grow the most spiritually. Challenging relationships that do not work out that well can teach us a lot and help us really appreciate the positive ones we are able to develop later. It is good to have expectations that do not preclude the positive. Unrealistic expectations either too positive or too negative do not serve us well. Having a balanced spiritual view of reality is so important. Our spiritual programming can always be improved on so that we will attract better people into our lives.

It is important to work hard to prepare oneself for the challenges that come with life. Pitfalls do exist that one can be aware of so as to avoid them. Often hard lessons are part of life, we need to learn from them and become deeper spiritually as a result. The people who become the strongest spiritually will have the hardest lessons and learn an awful lot from them. It is positive to be able to handle really big challenges, since this world has so many of them that need to be positively addressed. One can connect with people who have really serious spiritual problems and actually help them to spiritually grow and heal from them. But, one can only help those that are open to being helped. Also one has to be open to being helped oneself spiritually in order to be able to help someone else do so. People with really deep psychological/spiritual problems can be extremely hard to heal. But, that is the challenge that this world we live in presents us with. If we are going to heal the serious underlying spiritual problems that exist in this world we also are going to have to be good at helping people dealing with serious spiritual problems heal, including ourselves. Life is rough and requires a continuous effort to heal from its challenges and become healthier physically and spiritually as a result.

Being a spirtual pioneer on a spiritually backward planet.

I am a spiritual pioneer who connects with God(the universal spirit that maintains our physical/spiritual reality so that it is able to serve us well provided we put in the effort to understand how it functions) directly. I am a spiritual independent free to develop the most effective spiritual theories and techniques possible. People in this world connect with God various ways, with various degrees of effectiveness. I do need to stand up for what I have to offer to this world spiritually , since my survival here depends on this. So many people do not read my  blog posts on the spiritual. I am creating videos on youtube and struggling to reach people with my innovative spiritual ideas and techniques.

Spiritual development requires one find/develop better spiritual theories that enable one to handle reality in heavier doses. The better one is able to handle the difficulty that come from living in this hard resistant physical reality, the more effective one will become spiritually. Spiritual/meditative techniques can help one to become really good at becoming able to handle extremely difficult spiritual/emotional states provided one has guiding spiritual theories that enable one to see the value in putting up with such difficult and often painful states of consciousness. One ability to handle pain and difficulties has a lot to do with how much one can achieve in life. The truth can be quite painful, and one has to be able to face the pain that comes with the truth in order to grow further spiritually in a world that has a lot of serious problems that cause pain and hardship for those being directly affected by them.

The spiritual theories that enable one to handle the most discomfort and difficulty are going to be the ones that are closer to the truth. Tough spiritual(meditative) training can not be handled unless one is programmed with spiritual theories that are good enough to enable one to see the great value in putting up with a high level of spiritual difficulty. The spiritual beliefs of the past that have such a foothold in this world are very responsible the current state this world is in and tend to be addictive and resistant to being improved on. Science keeps working on improving on its theories and knowledge, we need to do the same in the spiritual area. The spiritual senses have to be developed in order for one to tune into what is happening on the spiritual level. Tough spiritual/meditative training can not only help one to tune in better to the spiritual, but help one to better understand how things on the spiritual level works so that one can have positive impact spiritually there. Better spiritual theories then can be developed which will help one to train even harder spiritually and thus tune in ever better to what is happening on the spiritual level. It is a constant circular type(spiral) process of training, tuning in, developing better theories, and then training even harder, and tuning in even better, and developing even better spiritual theories.

The spiritual theories that make one the most effective spiritually at dealing with the serious problems in this world will be the ones that are closest to the truth. The problems in this world are all rooted to a considerable degree in the spiritual. As we improve the spiritual state this world is in by improving the spiritual state we are in as its individual inhabitants, we will automatically be inspired to effectively take on the challenges that are happening on the physical level here. So often we are handicapped by out of control desires and emotions that not only handicap our effectiveness in this world, but can cause a lot of harm and destruction in this world. A rational spiritual approach to solving the problems in this world can not work if we are unable to properly direct our emotions and desires in a way that is constructive and healthy.

Addictions prevent one from making progress spiritually, and addictive/autocratic type beliefs do the same. It may be comforting to be addicted to that which you are familiar with spiritually, but we can become comfortable with a more adventurous spiritual approach in which we are constantly exploring new spiritual territory and discovering better ways to understand this universe on the spiritual level. Going beyond ones comfort level is required in order to achieve a lot in this world. And achieving a lot in this world can be extremely rewarding to ones spiritual wellbeing and bring more actually spiritual comfort/peace than one will ever get from being stuck where one is at spiritually.

My spiritual theories are developed rationally with no concern for the fact that they may be contrary to the spiritual theories/beliefs so many hold so dear. I am not here to win a popularity contest, but am here to get the most out of my capabilities and thus contribute as much as I am able that I have of value to the world. I am “differently abled” with my abilities very focused in the spiritual on a very core level. I am a very unique person as to my abilities, but everyone is unique to some degree, and can get more out of themselves by further developing this uniqueness(specialness). I do identify strongly with those individuals who are the most unique(specialized) in their capabilities and that often are destroyed or greatly damaged by a world that is so much into forcing a rigid type of mental/spiritual conformity that is greatly responsible for holding back positive spiritual/social progress on this planet.

Too much forgiveness can harm ones ability to positively transform this world spiritually!

I forgive people, but I do not forgive the type of spiritual energy that is responsible for all the abusive/destructive behavior that happens in this world. That is why I am a spiritual pioneer working hard to improve the level of spirituality on this planet. I work hard to keep my spiritual energy really healthy and work hard to ensure that unhealthy spiritual energy either stays clear of me, or is accommodating to being transformed by me. I often do have to take on or defend myself from toxic type spiritual energy in order to ensure that the energy close to me is not working against me too much. I am use to a type of spiritual explosive energy happening around me, and because of my training I seem to get positive results despite shocking people and often needing to take a sort of protective cover shortly afterwards. Being a spiritual pioneer does have its dangers, but this world will not be easily transformed, and will not be done by the timid. It will not be easy to improve on the spiritual status quo in this world, but it can be done. But, one has to often be willing to push the edge and handle the danger associated with it in order to really positively transform things in a world that is backward and brutal spiritually. Forgiveness has its place, but to forgive and not try to transform the energy responsible for inadequate spiritual behavior is not a positive thing.

After posting this a person gave this response elsewhere: “Hi Thomas, love your work and posts. I am respectful of your view on forgiveness. I on the other hand believe their are 3 key concepts in which one must master in regards to spirtual mastery. 1. Unconditional love 2. Unconditional acceptance 3. Unconditional forgivness. God loves, accepts and forgives all of us. If we are to truly becone one with god, or enlightened, we must be able to forgive all unconditionally. Again just my opinion and of course your truth is yours and i respect that 🙂 much love brother and i love what you are doing and your leadership in spiritual practices!”

Here was my response to this: I just go with that which works in the real world which I am very strongly connected to because of the extremely rough training I do and the direct experience I have in it. I just do not automatically believe in what is widely circulating in this world psychically and thus has a strong appeal even if it is not well enough in balance with reality. I do forgive people as I clearly state in the post, but do not accept negative/destructive spiritual energy that lead to unhealthy and destructive behavior. I am very healthy physically and spiritually because of the type of spiritual energy I accept and what I do not believe meets my high spiritual standards. I want the best for people, so will not be an enabler of bad conduct and unhealthy habits. My posts need to be read carefully and not quickly dismissed. Spiritual pioneers are often rejected for what they have of value without people taking the time and effort to really understand where they are coming from. It is so easy to just cling to inadequate beliefs without taking the time to explore something new, that is outside of ones comfort zone. We can all get closer to the common truth that govern the common reality we exist in.

I added the extra above because:   I tend to be triggered by others who have differing spiritual theories/beliefs than I do. I do not like to waste anything I write that can further explain where I am coming from. I am programmed in the spiritual theories that I developed to be very effective in helping me and others at coping really well with the common reality all of us share and have impact on. I do not have a lot of other spiritual theories strongly programmed into me, since they would counteract and harm the effectiveness of my own spiritual theories. I do have an intuitive connection to a lot of spiritual theories/beliefs that are out there in the world, but do not have them taking up the important space in my subconscious needed by my own really effective guiding spiritual beliefs. Deep within oneself spiritually is only room for certain core beliefs, and one has to make sure they are the really effective ones. One does not need to be an expert in all spiritual/ religious beliefs/theories that are out there in this world in order to become really advanced in the spiritual area. One actually functions best spiritually when you only retain the best spiritual theories and the reasons why they work better than the others that compete with them for effectiveness in this challenging world we exist in.
