Coercion, force and the power of bonding gets the snowball rolling. It soon develops into a mass lifeforce of it's own, swamping individual rational
processes via attraction, which quickly clamps the unwary with the bonding force.
You speak as though it is just the ignorant or the innocent that this works successfully on...it is not: many times you will see this work on
otherwise intelligent people through the 'mass group' or mob-effect, which few conceive the roots of: it is the sticky nature of energy, which
aligns the mind through it's forces.
Spirit is sticky: it is like a blob, once touched, it sticks, connects, and grows: the aura is your vehicle of access, and as it is basically
unrecognised by most, it can use it's dominant body-of-enegry to easily submerge the more subtle energy of mind.
This is the metaphysics of it....not generally accepted, certainly the unknown factor, or origin of potential (cultist growth and direction). So, is
there defense against this? Hardly at this stage of mankind's development:
Spirit has Two affective Pole aspects, one Feminine, the other Masculine: At this moment, perceive the image of the yin-yang in your mind:
The black half represents the Feminine aspect of spirit, the embodied or womb polarity: it is magnetic, and it's darker effect is known as uzian:
ooze. It is like an infinite tar: once touched, it can never before broken from (while within it's field of influence: energy). Starting to get the
picture? It is where humanity arose from!
The white half represents the Masculine aspect of spirit, the subtle or mind polarity: it is electric, and its darker effect is known as sticky:
adhesion. It is like an infinite glue: once touched, it can never be broken from (while within it's field of influence: life). Now getting the
picture? It is the self-aware aspect of humanity, the inherent intelligence within nature.
So, here you have your Origin of Influence: it over-rides, overcomes all processes to elude it:
'I want to appeal to your analytical mind,' don Juan said. 'Think for a moment, and tell me how you would explain the contradiction between the
intelligence of man the engineer and the stupidity of his systems of beliefs, or the stupidity of his contradictory behavior.'
("Active Side of Infinity," Carlos Castaneda)
That is an example of something, nor matter the origin, that any intelligent observationalist can perceive as a functioning aspect of humanity, and
humans within social settings.
To elude these unfavorable effects, one must learn the carefully concealed methods that are everywhere revealed, but which themselves are always
traps: unless learned entirely by the individual (very slow/hard), there is always a 'price' set upon this knowledge, which is then used by the
highest members as their energy, which originally belonged to the innocent inquirerer. This hidden knowledge is known today by the term: Integration:
the two united overcomes either force alone, and then you have a unified field of energy, stronger than the black or the white half of the
(representational) yin-yang, or what is also known as Awareness of One Self.
Religions are cults, of course. Just because they are big does not mean they are excused from their negative effects: they control large masses of
humanity, and will not, cannot, release them without dying.
Example: how I was indoctrinated into christianity:
My grandmother made all her five children sign contractual agreements with the church to raise their children as christian: this included saying the
rosary every nite together for 10 yrs.. It included going to christian schools; it included giving to christian charities; it included paying tithes,
which were published once a year and passed to all church members (great for gossip and encouragement to pay more); church was mandatory, and
punishable for failure to attend: our family was required to attend church 6-7 times per week. Oh, and don't forget bible class, dear heavens.
Now, escape is possible: but it is begun in the nature of friendship and group camaraderie, and like-to-like has both moments of consciousness, and
, when the darker forces of uz (black) and sticky (white) are able to seep upon all. Btw, these can also be called evil and
good, but both principles have a touch of evil: don't forget the reverse colored dots in the black-white yin-yang, which readily reveal this to you,
Integration is the Phoenix bird that dies and is reborn to Itself, the Many in One, or Awareness of One Self:
The Ultimate Cult, Immortality in the EverAll.
