Ha dude. Its a bit off, miles exactly.
The Law of Increase is that Life is always growing. Flowers grow, grass grows, and babies grow. Increase is the natural order of Life. It makes sense
how people see children as "ungrateful" and always wanting more (toys, candy, video games, money, etc.). It is natural to always expect more when you
notice this order of Life to always grow and increase.
There is no law of increase, things merely more or less coalesce into greater wholes or patterns of reality, both in a physical sense and
metaphysical. Increase or decrease is just a perspective of the creatures who exit there in.
Rich people are treated the same. They always expect more money and good things in life. They are called "greedy", "selfish", etc., but this is the
similarity between the mind of children and the rich.
"Wealth is evil."
"There is not enough for everyone."
"We should not enjoy life but resist, that is more 'spiritual'."
That is different. Ever wonder why somebody like Michel Jordan did so well in baseball or why other do well, and others do not. Or why some
are successful in some things while other are not?
A lot of factors are actually involved, thousands upon thousands, but the biggest is that they are more simple in there mental makeup. Even masses
follow the ones who have the more simple outlook on things, think of religion or government or anything else out there, its all kiddish stuff right.
In martial arts its thought as being one with oneself, or the zen mind. To remove yourself form the ego, but what is the ego but the thing we all
spin around, most especially today in our societies.
And what are the precepts of the zen mind or what the Buddhas said? What are there maxims and the things they though? How about this, no mind. In
eastern philosophy its thought as being nowhere at all, being in a place were your not influenced at all by anything you just exist.
And what did Michel Jordan think of when on the court? Did he think about the universe or the price of oil in the next quarter of the stock market,
or his rent or any thing else? No! If he thought about anything else besides being there in the moment he would not be were he is now.
Same goes with everything else, even in business. Its not magic, its simply the way our reality is structured. Those who are more one dimensional
and strife for a fixed thing are more likely to manifest it then those who are not or have more on there mind or more to carry in life. Its not
manifestation, its tunnel vision will get you farther in our matrix simply because you will have less to carry around with you.
So ya! The more things you have to worry about the more chances are that you will not succeed. And the more you burden yourself with things both
physically and especially mentally the less focused you become and the more you have to deal with, which again does what? Makes you less successful
in things. Which makes you less happy. So yes, the whole law of attraction thing is not really about being more or knowing more, in fact its the
opposite. Its about being less, and knowing less, there are other factors off course but that is the basic.
So ya! The more childlike unless they have something real bar there lifes, are way are more likely to be happier.
My Michel Jordan comparison stands but so does in other things, how about business or even in learning something like how to play the flute. Ever
notice how the more simple and tunnel vision are in, the farther you will get in anything. Its simply because you have less things to worry about
and carry around even if it is just random thoughts outside the line. In group though that is the same also, look at religions or politics or even
social media. Its all just that precept on a mass scale, and the simpler and less complicated it is the likelier it is that it will succeed. In
martial are it also stands as you have to be in the moment and think of nothing more.
Of course there are rules to that even, but I dont think humanity has ever had to face anything outside that yet.
Or how about this? What were the things Buddha said to detach yourself from, things like lust, sloth, gluttony, anger, pride, envy, and greed.
Does that list begin to sound familiar? Should since your raised christian. Why are you jealous of other people? Why do you envy others? Why are you
angry? I could go on. We literally live in our own dimensions in our heads. And even thinking on any of those is basically just a waste of energy.
In fact when you are jealous of others you are literally given them your energies, or in greed? That things which all humans posses? Why does our
monetarism $ society work?
Why do the rich get rich and the poor get poor? Its simple because the poor are focused on helping the rich get richer because they are blinded by
there greed there all encompassing thing, and then the system breeds more of the same even mentalities, and hence it cycles ever on in that fashion
both and is manifested in this reality on whatever scale it is. They are in effect feeding the beast inside them and outside of them. There primal
urge and thing that they are, there sin.
Its not even really that the rich are more happy about things that they are in the position they are. Its because they are more centrifugal on
themselves, and are not capable of thinking of other things, some literally so, which make them have less mental burdens and less issues and scruples.
So yes! They have a child's mentality and are more simple people, simply because they are not capable of thinking farther in things, so they do and
act more on there desires. While somebody who is more burdened with a conscious is still stuck in the dreads of seeing the world for what it is.
While those more simple will simply forge on headlong regardless, simply because they cant see what lies ahead. There is a downside to that as well,
but again humanity has yet to really deal with it, but one day it will come.
So basically this whole service onto self vs service onto others is nonsense, as it creates a false dichotomy. The rich are happy because they put all
there effort on themselves, in fact many are not capable of thinking outside there interests, and are focused solely on that, the thing you take as
greed or cheating or gaming the system is a manifestation of that.
And the poor are unhappy because they focus and put all there energies in helping others ie the rich, they worry and put more effort into that then
even helping themselves, or there families, or sometimes even offspring, and focus on it so much that it manifests into there reality, and what were
thing things the Buddha or Jesus warned against again? And from there that cycle and pattern continues ever on. So basically its a false dichotomy
you could say.
Its why Michel Jordan was top player in his time. Its why CEOs are so successful in the social climb, its also why psychopaths will like be more
successful then others. Having a conscience is not necessarily a good thing in our society and existence, because it will burden you with more to
mentally deal with. Or how about this? Think on how much more easier and funner things were even on ATS before people became a little more
enlightened on things? Nothing really has changed in that time but some perspectives have broadened.
