Are Goals set at birth? People who were in concentration camps, would they not go into sudden Retardation? If you are one in Submission and suddenly inherit or come by a million dollars, could not this luck raise you to another level, such as Acceptance?
PEOPLE WITH REJECTION AS THEIR GOAL SET THEMSELVES UP FOR MISFORTUNE AND WOULD NOT RECOGNIZE A GREAT SPIRITUAL TEACHER IF ONE CROSSED THEIR PATH. EROTIC LOVE IS FULL OF REJECTION FOR THOSE WHO HAVE THIS AS THEIR GOAL. THEY AUTOMATICALLY CHOSE AN UNSUITABLE OBJECT AS THEIR LOVE OBJECT BECAUSE THEY KNOW THAT THEY WILL ULTIMATELY BE REJECTED. FORTUNES HAVE BEEN LEFT TO PEOPLE WITH REJECTION AS THEIR GOAL, AND THESE FORTUNES HAVE BEEN QUICKLY MISHANDLED WITH BAD INVESTMENTS AND ILL-FATED VENTURES, OR SIMPLY “BLOWN”. ON THE OTHER HAND, PEOPLE WITH ACCEPTANCE AS THEIR GOAL HAVE MANAGED TO AVOID TORTURES QUITE SUCCESSFULLY; AND THOSE WITH GROWTH AS THEIR GOAL GREW SPIRITUALLY IN AUSCHWITZ. THE ONLY WAY THAT A GOAL CAN BE ALTERED IS BY CONSCIOUS RECOGNITION OF BOTH THE GOAL AND THE DESIRE TO ALTER IT WITH POSITIVE CHANGE AS THE RESULT.
