Hello Guys and thanks for the awesome work you guys are doing for the sake of humanity.

Recently i have left my previous job because i felt like i wasnt getting anywhere spiritually in that position. Which was a more physical type of job.
I felt strongly i needed to sharpen my mind because it was becoming terribly dull from the atmosphere. So i thought i would shift to a more intellectual type of job. Always keeping in mind that we need to balance the 3 centers in our lives to stay healthy and balanced.

Now moving onto this new job i had an incredible increase in fresh energy, i felt a great joy. But over time the constant intellectualism has attracted a massive amount on negativity causing me to become crude. I've tried the balance this out by meditations on the heart ,meditations for suffering humanity. But as soon as i get back in shop it causes me to lose hope. The people that come in to the shop are incredibly negative and constantly complaining and its constantly repetitive and alot of people have that false sentimentality which they mistake for compassion for you ,seems like they like to be negative.

Which in turn is effecting my family and those around me. Which i try so hard to nullify so it doesnt cause harm.
I thought changing centers in my job would add benefits ,but maybe the job is too intellectually intense?

At the moment it seems as thou the negative has the upper hand and i cant really dedicate all meditations to general compassion which i spend alot of time anyway when i need to concerntrate on the chakras ,transmutation, and eliminations as well.

How would you guys handle this situation maybe im missing something or something that cant be avoided?

Thanks guys for your time and patience.

From Treatise of Revolutionary Psychology by Samael Aun Weor: "All things, all circumstances that occur outside ourselves on the stage of this world, are exclusively the reflection of what we carry within ... When someone changes internally—and if that change is radical—then circumstances, life, and the external also change"

The "radical change" is not a thing.

When we choose to do a particular job we have to approach the situation wisely. Above all else this means accepting the situation after we place ourselves in it.

Then, Inner Peace is the practical requirement in the face of any negative impressions. Obviously, just "accepting" things is not enough. There have to be positive impressions; impressions such as the good music, audio lectures, etc. for us to be in our desired inner state. This is the equivalent of packing a good lunch. We are responsible for our inner state and it would be more than impossible to walk the Path of Self Realization if we did not have the skills to change our own inner state positively on demand. Practice makes perfect.

For Work purposes, it is useful to have a specific task that we are doing internally as an exercise. Something simple works as well or better than a "momentous" exercise. This activates our will and helps put our center of gravity in the consciousness.

Peace.

P.S. Aun Weor says the following about the Two Lines of Life and Level of Being: “What is the real objective of our existence? For what are we here? Why?
This is something that we have to elucidate with meridian clarity; this is something we should weigh, analyze, and calmly judge.

We live, in the world, with what objective? We suffer the unspeakable for what?
We strive to get this that is called bread, garment and shelter and, after all, what?
Where are all our efforts?
Live for living, work for living and immediately die is, by chance, something wonderful?
Verily, friends, it is necessary to understand the meaning of our existence, the meaning of living.

There are two lines in the life: one of them we could call horizontal, the other, vertical.
They form a cross within ourselves, here and now, neither even a second further, nor a second behind.
We need to objectivate a little these two lines.

The horizontal starts with the birth and ends with the death; before each cradle there is the perspective of a tomb, all that is born shall die.
In the horizontal is the whole process of be born, grow up, reproduce, getting old and soon die.
In the horizontal are the vain pleasures of the life: liquors, fornications, adulteries, etc.

In the horizontal is the fight for the daily bread, the fight for not die, for exist under the sunlight.
In the horizontal are all those inner sufferings of the practical life, of the home, of the street, of the office, etc. Nothing wonderful the horizontal line can offer to us.

But, there exists other line totally different; I want to mention, with emphasis, to the vertical one. This vertical is interesting.
In it we find the different levels of the Being; in it are the transcendental powers and transcendences of the Inner; in this vertical are the esoterical powers, the powers that divinize, the Revolution of the Consciousness, etc.
With the powers of the vertical we can decisively influence over the horizontal aspects of the practical life; we can change totally our own destiny, make something different of our life, something distinct and turn to be something totally distinct of what we were, of what we are, of what we have known in this bitter existence.

The vertical is, therefore, wonderful, revolutionary by nature; nevertheless it is necessary to have a bit of restlessness.
Before everything, I ask myself and ask the others:
Are we, by chance, glad with what we are? Who of you feels happy, in the most complete sense of the word?”

Only you can judge your limits and capacities. Right vocation is part of the eightfold path of Buddhism; therefore it is important to find a job that resonates with your own particular stellar idiosyncrasy.

Sometimes it is necessary to stick with a job that is difficult in order to make ends meet. Other times such jobs compromise our spirituality and must be renounced at great cost. This is something you can only discover through much trial, error and meditation. Have patience, reflect, and you will arrive at creative comprehension of what you need to rectify your situation.

Joyful in hope, suffering in tribulation, be thou constant in thy prayer.

Benedictis, qui venit in nomine Domini. Osanna in excelsis.

"Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest!"
