Transurfing. Part 16. Excess Potentials and Balancing Forces.

Part 16
Excess Potentials And Balancing Forces

People create their own problems and obstacles, and then waste time and energy on overcoming them. Contrary to popular belief, Transurfing shows that the reasons to all of our problems lie on a different plane. How can we eliminate problems from our lives? 

Care without worrying.

Everything in nature strives towards a state of balance. Drop in atmospheric pressure is balanced out by the wind. Differences in temperatures are compensated for by heat exchange. Everywhere, where there could be an excess potential of any energy, balancing forces appear, directed at eliminating the imbalance. We’re so used to this being the normal state of affairs that we don’t even ask ourselves: but why is it exactly this way and not another? Why does the law of balance work? There is no answer to this question.
Overall, laws do not explain anything - they only state the obvious. All laws of nature are only secondary to the law of balance. It is the primary law (or at least so it seems). There- fore, it is not possible to explain why balance should exist in nature. To be more precise, it is impossible to explain where balancing forces come from and why they exist at all. After all, just because we are used to some phenomena, it does not mean that is exactly how things happen. We can only guess what the world would be like without the law of  balance: would it turn into some kind of formless jelly or into aggressive scorching heat? However, the inappropriateness of such a strange world cannot be the reason to why the law of balance exists. So, we simply have to accept the law of balance as a fact, and stare in amazement at how perfect the space around us is. At the same time, however, we would not have any idea about what the driving force behind all of this is.
We’re used to having good and bad luck in life. We are also used to the idea that success is always followed by failure. These are all manifestations of the law of balance. After all, both failure and success upset the bal- ance. Absolute balance is when there is abso- lutely nothing going on, but there are no ab- solutes. In any case, no one has yet been able to observe an absolute state of balance. The world is full of constant fluctuations: day – night, high tide – low tide, birth – death and so on. Even in vacuum, elementary particles are constantly dying and being reborn.
The entire world could be viewed as a collection of pendulums where some are swinging higher, others are being dampened and all are interacting with each other. Each pendulum receives impulses from its neighbors and gives them its own in return. One of the fundamental laws controlling this entire complex system is the law of balance. In the end, everything strives towards balance. You yourself are also a kind of pendulum. If you one day decide to upset the balance and make a sudden swing in one direction, you will affect neighboring pendulums and create annoyance around you, which will then turn against you.
The balance can be upset not only by actions, but also by thoughts, and not only because thoughts usually precede actions. As you know, thoughts radiate energy. Even in the
material world, everything is based on energy. And everything that happens on the in- visible energy level is reflected in the world of visible material objects. It may seem that the energy of our thoughts is too small to be able to have any effect on the world around us. But if that was the case, things would be so much easier.
Nevertheless, let’s not try to guess what’s actually happening on the energy level, so we don’t get completely confused. For our purposes, it is quite enough to accept the simplified model of balance: if an excess energy potential appears, balancing forces arise to eliminate this potential.
Thought energy gives rise to excess potential when some kind of object is given too much significance. For instance, let’s compare two situations: in one situation you’re standing on the floor in your room, and in the other - you’re standing on the edge of a cliff. The first alternative doesn’t bother you at all. Yet, in the second alternative, the actual situation becomes very significant to you – take one wrong step, and something irreversible will happen. On the energy level, the fact that you are simply standing has the same significance in the first case as in the second. But, being as you are on the edge of a cliff, fear arouses tension in you, and so you create an irregularity in the energy field. The balancing forces will appear immediately, directed at eliminating this excess potential. You might even be able to feel their effect: on one side, a mysterious force is pulling you down, while on the other side, a different force is pulling you away from the edge. After all, for the excess potential of your fear to be eliminated, balancing forces either have to pull you away from the edge or throw you off the cliff and put an end to it. So it is the action of these forces that you are experiencing, while standing on the edge of a cliff. On the energy level, all material objects have the same significance. We are the ones that give them specific qualities: good – bad, happy – sad, attractive – repulsive, good – evil, simple – difficult and so on. Everything in this world is subject to our evaluation. By itself, evaluation does not create any irregularity in the energy field. Sitting an armchair all by yourself, you evaluate the situation: sitting here is safe, but standing on the edge of a cliff is dangerous. Yet, in the current moment, it does not concern you. You simply evaluate the situation and therefore the balance is not upset in anyway. An excess potential only arises if unreasonably great significance is given to an evaluation.
The magnitude of excess potential grows if an evaluation, having a great significance, is greatly distorting reality as well. In general, if the subject is very important to us, we are unable to evaluate its quality objectively. For example, an object of worship is always overwhelmingly full of virtues, whereas an object of hate is always full of flaws, and an object of fear is always full of terrifying qualities. It turns out that thought energy is artificially trying to create a certain quality that was never there in the first place. In such case, excess potential is created, which stirs up the wind of balancing forces.
Distorting reality, evaluation can be displaced in two ways: by giving the object either excessively negative characteristics or excessively positive characteristics. However, just by itself a mistake in evaluation plays no role whatsoever. Again, notice the following – a displaced, incorrect evaluation will create an excess potential only if your evaluation is of great significance to you. Only the things and situations that are of importance to you specifically will provide your evaluation with energy.
Excess potential, although invisible and in- tangible, nonetheless plays a significant and even treacherous role in peoples’ lives. The actions of balancing forces in eliminating this potential give rise to the lion’s share of problems. The perfidy lies in the fact that a man often gets a result that is quite the opposite of his intentions. Moreover, nobody understands what is actually happening. Hence, we get the feeling that there is some kind of mysterious evil force at work, a kind of “Murphy’s law”. We have already touched upon this question when we were discussing why we always get what we really don’t want. Let’s take a look at the next example that will show us why the things we wish for always slip away.
There is an erroneous opinion that if we wholly and completely devote ourselves to our job, we can achieve outstanding results. From the balance’s point of view, it’s becomes completely apparent that to get immersed in your work means to put this very same work on a scale and weigh it against everything else. The balance is disturbed and you won’t have to wait long for the consequences. The result will be the direct opposite of what was expected.
If working harder to you is making more money or raising your qualifications, then of course, you would have to make an effort, and nothing terrible will happen because of that. But you’ve also got to know when to stop. If you are constantly feeling exhausted and work has become a nightmare to you, then it means you need to slow down or change your job altogether. Excessive efforts will definitely have a negative outcome.
Let’s take a look at how this all happens. Besides work, you have many other things that you value: your house, your family, entertainment, your spare time and so on. If you have put your job above everything else,  then you have created a very strong excess potential. Everything in nature strives to- wards balance. Therefore, regardless of your will, forces will be manifested, taking care of the excess potential. And they can act in the most varied ways. For example, you get sick – there can be no talk about work until you get better. Maybe you would even get de- pressed, and why not? After all, you are forcing yourself to do something that has be- come a burden to you. Your mind keeps telling you: “Come on, you have to get up, go to work and earn some money!” But your soul (the subconscious) is wondering: “Is that really why I came into this world, to suffer and endure all kinds of pains? What do I need all of this for?” Finally, you’ll end up with the chronic fatigue syndrome, which will put an end of any possibility of doing a job. It’s like pulling the devil by the tail – there is no point.
At the same time, you may notice how other people around you achieve greater results and they do so without much effort. It turns out that, having reached a certain level, the significance that you attribute to your job starts maxing out. The more weight your work has for you, the more problems you will get. It will seem to you that having all these problems is just the normal way of things, “it’s all in working order”, so to speak. The truth is that you would have much fewer problems if you only lowered your “bar of importance.”
There is only one conclusion we can draw from all of this: in order to eliminate any excess potential you need to consciously review your attitude to work. It is necessary for you to have some time off when you can do what you like, besides your job. Those who don’t know how to relax don’t know how to work either. Once you are at work, rent yourself out. Give your job your head and your hands, but not your heart. The pendulum of work needs all your energy, but you came into this world not just to work. You will be much more productive and efficient at work if you eliminate your excess potential and free yourself from pendulums.
While renting yourself out, make sure to act impeccably. Don’t let yourself make even the smallest blunders, which may allow others to accuse you of recklessness. The impeccable bit concerns your performance at work. Renting yourself out does not at all mean to be a slacker and take no responsibility for your actions. It means to act detached, not creating excess potential, but at the same time do everything that is asked of you down to the smallest detail. Otherwise, you may be in for a bumpy ride. For example, there are always people around you who, unlike yourself, really bury themselves in their work. They will sense subconsciously that you are renting yourself out; that is you are no longer working extremely hard but still manage to get a lot of things done. These diligent souls will intuitively start looking for an opportunity to catch their rival making a mistake. As soon as you make a mistake, they will immediately throw themselves on you. Whatever mistake you have made, it will probably be insignificant, and therefore humiliating, when your colleges point it out. Something like you being late for work, forgetting something or having missed something. If you were engrossed in your work, they would overlook your mistakes. But now they accuse
you of not caring enough about your job.
Similar situations could arise not only at work, but also in your family or among friends. Therefore, when you are renting yourself out, whatever situation it may be, it’s necessary to perform your duties flawlessly. Let your inner observer – the Overseer -come to your aid in this task. Otherwise, you will soon plunge into the game once again. Your inner Watcher doesn’t have anything to do with a split personality. You’re simply noting to yourself, in the background, what you are doing and how you are doing it. We’ll return to this in subsequent chapters.
You could object to the above reasoning: if you should not be working excessively and consequently, avoiding any excess potential, how can we then understand the expression, “putting your heart and soul into it”? It depends on the task at hand. “Burying yourself in your work” could only be justified in one situation, when the work itself is your goal. We’ll discuss later the topic what it means to have a goal and what your goal is. So, in the case where your work is your goal, it serves as a kind of tunnel leading you to success. In contrast to the job you are doing for some- body else, such work pumps you with energy and fills you with inspiration and satisfaction. If you’re among those rare happy souls whose work is exactly like that, then you have absolutely nothing to worry about.
Everything mentioned above is completely true for studying as well. Later, we will look at other life situations which create excess potential. We will also look at the consequences that follow the actions of balancing forces.
