If we will observe the life of people in the world today we will inevitably come to the realization that the majority of people do not live a happy life. The are not fulfilled, fundamentally joyful or generally happy. It seems that most of us are suffering or struggling to survive and "make it". Everyday Life can be intimidating. We live in a fast environment where so many things are happening all the time. We have to act constantly and in the same time to interact with so many people. Also, we have to deal with the continuously growing number of new rules and new structures that appear in our societies, which can help us deal with different situations from the one hand but also taken all together they are creating confusion, conflict and chaos in our minds.
All these simultaneous acts of our bodies, emotions and mind in a world of 7+ billion people create a big demand for endurance, psychological stability and also a need of special skills for dealing with the ongoing waves of energy hitting us from different directions. Many times, through the interactions with people inside the different types of relationships and through the social influences and the collective unconsciousness, which is known generally as social conditioning, we feel literally like being attacked...and in a sense we are. These different energies and programs that arrive from outside, many times make us feel like being torn apart. We feel that we are pulled here and there and that we do not have actual control over our own life. This creates a terrible feeling of isolation and fear, a feeling of being lost in an unfriendly world which is waiting for you to fall down or just make a mistake in order to quickly devour you with no pity!
Lets see some examples: One example can be the pressure from parents, relatives or other close people that encourage someone instead of following his own dreams to follow the purposes and the goals of his surrounding circle or these of the majority transmitting fear of being unique or simply being oneself. All these are influences from society, friends & work environment which deprive a man from his freedom. This puts one under the influence of different concepts and relationships which one is somehow “obliged” to follow with no other choice as it appears to be. “This is how life works” or "this is what everybody is doing" they will tell you. There are also the influences from the political propaganda and propaganda of the corporate world which both try to instill in the mind of people their own thoughts and ideas which in reality “steal” the time and energy from the lives of their followers without giving them back real benefit.
Also there are the ideas of fashion, popularity and fame which bring even more anxiety and concerns to the lives of people because all these force people to imitate and value unconscious and useless stereotypes, especially the ones that are already followed by the majority like zombies. Also even the religious dogmas, culture and sometimes even art awake in people the instinct of the herd, transforming them into sheep that need someone like a shepherd /Pharisee… Lets add to all this the influences of doctors, parapsychologists and other “masters” and extrasensory specialists that the last years multiply and appear everywhere almost like mushrooms.
All of these are influences that show us the depressive picture of what is happening in the world that we live in. A person who lives in the state of the sleep of consciousness, in the “darkness”, is very difficult to understand all these moreover to escape from all these, but if someone has a bit of intelligence he will understand it. Despite all these, the holly purpose of a human being is freedom and independence. It is the only way for someone to be happy and have the right understanding of what life really is. However, unfortunately, today the main concern of people is not freedom but survival and conformity!
Although it is true that many people today feel this depressive state of being that exists in the world and even feel hopeless, the command of the spirit is that we should not feel panic and desperation. We must realize that exactly in this state a man is more open and vulnerable to be influenced and believe in anything because he feels sensitive and weak. Such a weakened person will accept without filtering with his consciousness any strange influence from outside. However a spiritual person, instead of becoming a follower and believer of someone who will promise things, has to acquire the knowledge and learn the methods and mechanisms of protection and the art of fighting with these influences. This is the way for a man to start having by himself influence over his body, emotions and thoughts and start becoming himself the master of his own life. This is in essence the path of the “spiritual warrior”. This is the reason why the esoteric martial arts appeared on the earth. The real spiritual warrior who is connected with the Divine Power and is sincere is not in danger of becoming psychologically defeated by all the above unconsciousness of the world because he is aware, conscious and almighty.
