Most of what I would have to say on this topic depends on what sort of circumstances you are talking about Questor.
There is a vast different between external and internal conditions. If you are talking about creating a change in yourself then I agree that you need
to keep a certain amount of focus to avoid slipping back into old behaviors. But at the same time, depending on how you do the work, the amount of
effort can vary.
If for example you wish to eliminate your Jealousy. If your technique is to keep that in mind and not act on what you feel then you are in for a
constant struggle. If you can maintain it for years then eventually it will settle in and you will not have to work at it quite as hard.
But there are other techniques, ones where you focus more effort in a concentrated way that can achieve results. This does not eliminate the need to
remember that you no longer wish to act this way but it can make the new change sink in much quicker.
The key is to involve more than just thoughts, to take actions, speak words, and in general dedicate your entire being to the effort. If you put
everything you are into the effort, results will follow.
Now if you are talking about external circumstances things are a bit different. Each choice we make effects the directions of not only our lives, but
the lives around us. I have seen many times how even one choice can alter the pattern of life forever, most people think about a really bad choice
when I say this but it works for good ones as well.
Everyone carries around in their head an internal model of the people they know. This model is based on what they have seen and experienced of each
person. But since we see only a fraction of others we also fill in the blanks with elements of our own personality. What this leads to is one person
attempting to get another to fulfill what they wish them to be, rather than a true acceptance of what the other person really is.
These models are the source of much of the misunderstandings that occur between people. If you sit down and talk to someone about things you have
never discussed before their model of you will change, and their behavior towards you will change as well.
That is just one example of how external circumstances can be changed with a small amount of effort. This sort of change will stick.
But perhaps none of this really relates to what you are talking about, perhas if you care to give a few examples I could be more specific.
I agree with you in theory, but in reality there are a few other factors to deal with before you can achieve TK. I can toss objects around in my mind
quite easily and see them clearly but I have never had any luck in the physical world.
First there is your own psychological reaction to consider, a person has to be able to deal with the consequences of their new ability. This is an
easy thing to test, reach out your hand and will an object to fly to it. Then think about how you would feel if it did indeed happen, most people will
get an involuntary fear reaction to some degree.
The second and much harder to overcome is the pressure put on all of us by the rest of the life on this planet. I can say all day long that TK is
possible, but that will only affect those people who believe I know what I am talking about. But if I did it in front of you then there is little
choice but to accept the fact that it is real. Some people would take refuge in the idea that 'it is just a trick' even if they cannot find any
proof, but most people would be shocked and stunned.
Then some of them would learn to do the same. The changes that would then follow are staggering. Depending on how strong your belief that others have
the right to decide their own fate you have to overcome this potential risk. To put it more simply, you have to believe that you have the right to
introduce this change into Society.
The first condition I can handle, I have done enough other odd things to be able to deal with the idea of TK without the associated fear. The second
though, that is the one I cannot easily overcome.
