We may feel sad, angry, helpless, afraid or hurt but in all these experiences we, essentially feel negative. Negative emotions arise in our life because we come as souls, to overpower negative energies.
Arrogance is a negative emotion because it comes from ego. When we feel negative, it is our ego which gets hurt not our soul. Our soul’s sense of self worth does not arise from the ego. The soul always lives in the present whereas the ego is derived from past experience. Arrogance makes us stay in the past by making us feel revengeful , angry or hurt rather than focus on being free from negativity in the present.
Arrogance makes us feel indestructible , which makes us rigid to receiving new learning. Arrogance prevents learning of a new way of being and upholds old learning at the cost of soul advancement.
Arrogance also prevents us from receiving love . The ego comes in between and we feel rejected even when the other person does not intend to reject us because we feel our work is supreme and they are inferior. If we become arrogant, we expect that everyone else should hero worship us. If they love us but have other work because of which they cannot be with us all the time, we feel unloved without understanding their problems. Arrogance prevents people from giving importance to other people's work and credit for their being. The people who feel neglected or misjudged cannot give love freely to the arrogant person because of the demands of the bloated ego. Arrogance makes people abusive and thus, they fail to attract love in their lives. They succeed professionally to feel appreciated and loved but they cannot cope up with demands of true love by ensuring a fair energy exchange. They only receive flattery and not love , inspite of success
The soul is a part of the Creator. It is energy of a very high positive vibration. The soul exists in several dimensions, one of which is Earth. Earth is a physical dimension.
A physical dimension is created by interaction of negative with positive. When air particles become dense, they create solids. The frequency of particles in solids is less than in air. Likewise, the frequency of the physical body is less than that of a spirit body which is made of energy like air. To make its frequency denser in order to enter a physical body, the spirit has to interact with negativity because it is negative energy which binds particles together. The negative energy lowers soul frequency and slows its evolution to happiness.
As is written in the book CREATION OF HAPPINESS: THE ENERGY WAR, a soul’s perspective
“T he speed at which the soul energy vibrates is called its vibrational frequency or soul frequency.
The concept of soul frequency is important because the soul’s power of creation depends on its vibrational frequency. The higher the frequency of vibration, greater is the soul’s power of creation.
Spirits, choosing to incarnate in a physical body, from the celestial planes have to lower their frequency to be able to enter the physical dimension.
Also, once they enter the physical body, different souls vibrate at different speeds depending on their level of evolution. Advanced souls vibrate at a higher speed or frequency than less advanced souls.Positive souls vibrate at a higher speed than negative souls”
So, physical life for the soul entails interacting with negative energies and transcending them into positive by creating happiness in its life. All negative emotions are negative energies in motion. Emotions are feelings and feelings are created by movement of electric impulses in the body.
The only way to create happiness is to transcend negativity by overcoming negative emotions, in a way that overcoming sadness becomes the tool of creating happiness.
Arrogance is a negative emotion because it creates heaviness or negativity in the free soul. The soul is always moving freely at a high speed of vibrational frequency. As the soul vibrates, it connects to the Creator’s life force and rotates life force energy to create life in its physical manifestations. Each thought that the soul focuses on repeatedly with feelings gets converted into form.
Arrogance makes the person conceited about his mind or body’s achievements and makes him disregard the soul’s role in the creation of success in his life. The person becomes proud of himself as a body, forgetting that he is first a soul, then a body. The person forgets his connection to the Creator by disconnecting with the soul. He loses track of his life purpose and goals of soul evolution.
He starts living for the sake of maintaining his ego and reputation in society. For the soul to move towards attaining his life purpose, it has to keep discarding its old negative beliefs as it discovers new happier ways of living. The soul is always is a vibration of flying. Arrogance pins the soul down to a status quo of being, which is against its free nature. To maintain the existing system, the person starts sacrificing new ways of being or evolving.
Also, the arrogant person becomes satisfied with success in one aspect of life. For example, Michael Jackson was arrogant about his music skills but indulged in incest. He thought that his success in one area made up for the negativity he created in another. But, for the soul, it is the average score which matters in all areas of life taken together. The soul evolves to happiness only when positive energy is created in all areas of life. If Michael Jackson was sexually starved or emotionally dissatisfied, his success in music would fail to help him be happy, as a soul. So, from the soul’s perspective, his life would not be a success and he would have to repeat it till he clears negative energy in all connected areas. Because of arrogance, he became negative and made mistakes which he may not have had he not been so successful in one area of life. He was unable to receive love as his ego came in between. Arrogant people start becoming whimsical with people they love , expecting the lovers to sacrifice their total personalities without giving as much time for love, themselves. As a result, their personal relationships often suffer.
Similarly, Mahatma Gandhi was saint like in conduct but he completely sacrificed his house holder responsibilities. He took the country to freedom but sacrificed happiness in his personal life. With his wife, he was arrogant in conduct and left her on anger. So, as an average, the positive energy he created in his professional role could not lead him to feeling happy as a man. From the soul’s perspective, it is not your action which matters but the average units of positive energy created in your life vs. negative energy. If you fail in your personal life, your professional success would not be able to outdo the negative score. You cannot move to a positive dimension or clear your grades on Earth if your core soul frequency remains unhappy.
The soul evolves by converting the total emotional negativity it converts into positive energy. Happiness comes through soul evolution. The mind has to learn to question and remove all negative beliefs it has which block it from feeling abundance in all aspects of life. Arrogance makes the soul’s focus one-sided. An arrogant soul is like a student who gets eighty percent in English but fails in Maths. The soul cannot move to the next grade till it clears both subjects to some reasonable degree of passing marks
"For instance, if a soul has been a killer in one life and a saint in another, it is the overall balance of karma which would affect its stage of evolution at any one point.
In other words, the person’s karmic debt in his present life would equal the amount of negative energy he created in the life of the killer, minus the amount of positive energy he created in the life of the saint.
If the soul has incurred - minus10 points in the killer’s life and + plus 8 points in the saint’s life, his present karmic debt would be – minus 2. Till the karmic debt is not cleared, the negative energy would not transcend into positive. The soul would evolve to the next higher plane of the game or evolution, only when his karmic debt is cleared.
In other words, obstacles would block the player’s progress in the present level of the game till the player is able to overcome them, and pass on to the next level of the game." _ excerpt IN SEARCH OF HAPPINESS - from chapter 10 - Karmic Balancing
There are several successful people who become very unhappy as they move up the ladder of wealth. They become haughty, rude and mean, thus attracting hatred in all personal relationships. They resort to drinking or prostitution to make up for the lack of love in their life but these short term measures do not bring peace to the soul. The soul can become happy only when the arrogance is discarded and the soul opens up to accepting its mistakes. The soul stays in the body if it can keep on learning and creating new ways of being happy. If the person becomes wealthy but loses his creativity, his soul would keep his body alive like a computer creating the same repetitive program. His mind would not evolve to the next stage of success where he can also be happy because he refuses to accept failure.
Such a person may call himself God like because of his wealth but he is far from being happy as God is. A god like energy is always humble and loves freely. It has no shame in accepting mistakes or saying sorry because the God like soul is happy in its core. The soul always remains alive and it knows that whatever it creates in its life is a part of creation of the whole universe and guided by its Higher Self. It knows that as it seeks to create anew, mistakes may happen but the mistakes can be converted into learning better ways of creating happiness. Like a toddler learns better ways of walking after falling or tripping, the soul learns better ways of being happy by making mistakes, accepting them and choosing not to make them again.
An arrogant soul cannot accept he is wrong and hence cannot learn from his mistakes. Instead of becoming happier, he becomes less creative and more rigid with time. Such a soul also starts feeling helpless and victimized inspite of all the wealth he accumulates because he feels he has to remain the same, in order to maintain his reputation. If we block change, we block evolution.
Blocking soul evolution by preventing creative exploration of the brain to different ways of being happy to staying in the same set up in order to make money and be safe, creates a shrinking of the soul’s involvement in our life. As the soul shrinks, happiness shrinks. Life largely appears empty and futile from the soul’s perspective of growth. The person becomes diseased overtime as the soul seeks to leave a stagnant mind and body.
So, an arrogant soul may get praise from the whole world but the praise would not touch the soul. The soul would feel praised only when it acknowledges itself from within. Self confidence comes from choosing to be happy by defeating attacks of hurt, betrayal or sadness.
Arrogance has to be destroyed for allowing change and moving on. Mediation by connecting to God’s light in the sky and inhaling it in the stomach; smiling often within the self for no reason for releasing positive hormones in the body; and utilizing creative energy of the soul by allowing change and recycling is necessary to be happy.
Negative people who flatter the body and crush the soul’s dreams have to be avoided to defeat the energy of arrogance. The status quo has to be maintained by promoting change and moving on. The partners in life have to evolve together or discarded as insignificant, if their speed of thinking blocks your evolution. Your happiness as a soul increases by spreading your inner light, your ideology which can contribute to increasing happiness of others and by defeating all those thoughts of others which make you feel compromised or helpless. If you are not arrogant, it is easy to realize dreams because the fear of rejection or hurt do not block your self respect.
Viewing yourself from an eternal soul’s perspective and knowing that God is watching you, guiding you and loving you as an eternal reality, helps to overcome arrogance and negativity in the mind.
It is more important to be happy than being arrogant . Ego comes in the way of receiving love, happinesss and being creatively fulfilled.
If you are living with a person who is arrogant, develop immunity. Use self healing techniques like energy cord cutting, silent talking, anger management m using observer perspectives and overcoming criticism. Do not allow your self worth to be diminished because the arrogant person sees you as inferior. Keep strengthening your aura through meditation, smiling and inhaling light in your body. Do not try to prove your self worth to an arrogant person for in that process, you may become negative like him or her.Instead , stay connected to your life purpose and often tell yourself that ' I respect myself' while breathing in the words into your stomach and thanking God.
