There is no such thing as “good luck” or “bad luck”. Your every thought, feeling, word, or action is forever creating your life. You are the creator of your life. It is normal and sensible for a person to have a reason for their thinking and doing, but it does not always work out this way. I’m quite sure that some people do what they do without any coherent thought, without motive or direction, or any clue about the repercussions of their actions.
In Cleveland, USA, I was strolling from some local shops and had reached the pedestrian crossing. This very wide road was controlled by the usual pedestrian lights, which were red. Another man reached them just ahead of me, briefly pausing as he scowled at the WAIT sign. I could feel his emotions as energy – a swirling mass of anger and inner turmoil. As I expected, he immediately began to cross the road, dodging among the cars as he scurried to the far side. He was making good progress, when he had to jump aside as a car blasted its horn at him. He reached the far curb just as the lights changed, and so I also crossed the wide and busy road. The man was now walking along with one stiff finger held in the “up yours” obscene and universal salute of anger and defiance. This, despite the fact that it was he who had been in error. Walking across the road while the light is red is no big deal, but I wonder how often a child is impressed with the idea that the traffic lights are of no consequence, that traffic rules are meant to be broken. What I am saying is that our every action sends out ripples of energy; energy that will affect many people before it returns back to its original source. In other words, what goes around comes around.
Most people imagine that energy which goes out would come back in its original form, but this is not so. The energy that radiates out comes back multiplied by the energy of all the people who have been in any way affected. Imagine disregarding the pedestrian traffic lights in our usual unthinking way, and a child is watching. A day later the child, like you, ignores the lights, and is badly injured by a car. Your energy is directly linked to the child and their preventable so-called accident. What goes around comes around!
Neither does it end here. The child has a family, and they are all emotionally affected. A parent reprimands the child asking ”Why did you cross when the lights are red? You know we have taught you not to do that.” And the child replies, “But I watched a person cross yesterday when the light was red, and they didn’t get hurt.” The parent then focuses the energy of anger and resentment on you, and despite the fact they have no idea who you are, and are never likely to, their anger energy is instantly connected to your own field of energy because of your involvement. This is unpreventable.
Many unfortunate people experience similar incidents several times in a week, adding up month by month until, in perfect timing, the repercussions return in a stream of so-called “bad luck” to their original source and creator. Unfortunately, this unseen, unrealised, flow of negative energy affects the lives of most people on this planet. For many, it is the very fabric of their life. Of course, if most of your actions are positive and uplifting, affecting people in ways that are mostly to their benefit, then what ‘comes around’ is usually termed “good luck”.
Let’s look at life through terms of human energy. Without our being aware of it, we are each continually generating and expressing a huge field of physical, mental, and emotional energy. This energy is either under our loving guidance – which is rare – or it is strongly reactive to whatever situation it encounters. Okay, this gets subtle. Reactive human energy is continually attracting and reacting to potentially negative, angry, and reactive encounters in life. In other words, this the perfect victim scenario. It continues unabated until the person either takes some measure of control over their energy/behaviour, or, as commonly happens, gets seriously ill. This continual discord is the birth place of our more common diseases. However unlikely it may seem, your human energy field is so very powerful that, for good or bad, it can affect a person on the other side of the world if their own field of energy is closely in sync with your own. When it comes to human energy it can be truly said that there is nothing outside of Self.
Not only is our field of energy a super-powerful attractant, it is also creative in a way that might involve no other people. Okay . . . so let’s go back to the man with the upraised stiff finger. What is this creating for him?
First and foremost his ‘up yours’ gesture is attracting everything into his life that can, and will, express his gesture. He is the one who will get ‘shafted’ by life, and all unrealised, he will probably do the ‘shafting.’ The violence of that shafting will be in direct proportion to the violence and anger of his energy field when he made the sad ‘I am a victim’ salute. Of course, he is not aware of this. If he was told, do you think for one minute that he would be open and receptive? As I said, the anger in him was so strong that I could easily feel it while ten meters away. Just imagine how powerfully he is broadcasting his anger/victim energy into life. What goes around comes around is only half of the story. The increase in negative energy can grow to be so big that only death can really serve the impact that is created, and even then . . . the story continues!
What I am attempting to show you is that there is are principles in life that seem to be totally unrealised by most of humanity: There is nothing outside of Self. What this means is simple; your relationship with self is your relationship with life. If you have angry and violent patterns of thought, this is your life. Your life will be one where anything that can go wrong will go wrong at the worst possible moment. Murphy’s Law! Even if you have feelings of anger and resentment to the President of another country – and they make it so easy! – it is your life that is affected. The energy that you generate toward another human Being is the field of energy which magnetises and attracts reciprocal energy into your own life. No matter how valid, the thoughts and emotions that you generate about another person become the creative element in your own life. It is your life that is affected. All that you negatively inflict on another person is coming back to you – with the huge negative energy increase that I have already detailed.
All over the western world suicide is escalating rapidly. Stress and depression have become the number one problems in people, along with all the disease and sickness that accompanies this. We are a race of sick, stressed, basically unhappy people, mostly looking outside of ourselves to blame someone else. And all never knowing that we are creating our own despair, our own sickness, our own problems – or that it can so easily be reversed. I know this, because I was once a stressed, sick, unhappy man, and I blamed the system for my misfortune. To get out of my own mess, I had to accept that I had made it, and that if I had made it so negative, maybe, just maybe, I could completely reverse it. Believe me, I’ve been there! It’s an odd fact that while suicide is escalating, it is only in the Western world, where basically most people have never had it so good. Or, at the very least, have never had a greater opportunity to prosper. In the Third World countries, with their daily struggle to survival, there is no increase in suicide, and they have probably never had it so bad, especially in contrast to the affluence and overindulgence of the West.
Consider, if you will, that you are a Being of energy. What you focus on is what you attract. Accept that nothing is outside of your field of energy, and that it is your focus, your thoughts, your feelings, that are the energy of attraction. Without wishing to belabour the obvious, you can so easily change your life by choosing the direction and even the content of your thoughts. Choose to focus on the good in yourself and life. Quit criticising yourself or life. Self-criticism attracts more of what you criticise into your life, simply because this is your focus. You attract more of what you don’t want. Chose to focus on what you like about yourself, instead of what you don’t like. Choose to focus on all that is bright and positive in your life. Quit watching negative morning news on television, or reading of human misery stories in the daily stress paper! All that negative focus enters your life. Life is also full of the beautiful, the uplifting, the positive . . . this needs to be your focus.
Always remember, you are the creator of your life.
