The Abe book says there's no evil trigger and that the universe doesn't condemn anyone, but what happens if someone uses a form of trickery to get what they want? For example, people using loopholes to get around laws like lawyers or people in business.
The reason why I ask this is because I'm in the process of hosting a giant video game tournament with my university, and I've been using several loopholes to get around legalities. Based on the way people in the facility are acting, I can tell they're beginning to act suspicious. This is probably what The Secret books meant by tricking the universe would bring consequences, but if karma doesn't exist, then how can there be a consequence? The Hebrew Torah says not to scam anyone.
The loopholes are provided by Law of Attraction. If you feel good, you will attract ease and cooperation. If you feel bad about it, you will attract what you don’t want.
Exactly, the signs are already showing that.
Who said Karma doesn't exist? Also it depends what you mean by loopholes. There are legal loopholes and illegal loopholes. Legal loopholes may be unethical, but if they are legal you should be okay. Long term though, ethical behavior is empowering.
They aren't illegal loopholes. They are loopholes that are a "work around", meaning an alternative.
Do you think too much honesty is an issue? I think this could disempower someone.
Too much honesty is never really an issue. Unless it's like a situation that calls for a white lie about something that would hurt another's feelings, in that case it's acceptable.
Insanity is nothing to deal with .
The loopholes I'm using are alternatives and withholding certain information. In other words, what I'm doing isn't illegal unless proven through court, and I'm not placing all my cards on the table. I actually think too much honesty can actually do harm, because you never want to let the enemy base know everything you're doing.
For example, I used a loophole to win my university's talent show. When the coordinator asked me if I owned the rights to the content, I responded yes. After the dance was done, he said I didn't own the rights, and I responded I was protected by parody. The loophole being used was that I was blurring the lines between parody and copyright, which is legal under circumstances that courts can show evidence, yet it's up to interpretation.
Since I feel really bad about this tournament, these are signs this is heading down a dark road.
"What if there isn’t actually an “enemy base” so to speak. Sure I get there are people who would not support your efforts – but its interesting choice of words as enemy always implies a battle has to take place at some point. However, your feeling bad about the tournament aren’t actually signs that its heading down a dark road but rather your inner being communicating to you something is off course – which is vastly different."
Yeah, there's no enemy base, because that's just a belief. Yeah, you nailed it. And what is off course, is that this loophole could lead to something disastrous in the future. This was the red flag that came up.
Notice how I didn't feel bad when I used the loophole in the talent show. Yeah, it's based on instinct.
What goes around comes around.
