Opposition and chaos on the spiritual path

Question: I have great difficulty understanding what has been happening in my life during the past seven years. It is as though an earthquake has been happening and there is constant disruption and chaos. Through a series of extraordinary events, I have lost control of my own life and find that nothing I do makes any difference to the situation. Can the masters shed any light on why this is happening? And why it is so surreal. Can it be that matter is resisting the flow of Spirit through my own being and that is what is causing this upheaval?

Well, given that the question gives few specifics, I will not give a specific answer, I will give a more general answer. When you dedicate yourself to the spiritual path, there will be some opposition. There will be an internal opposition from your own separate selves. There will be an external opposition from dark forces that might be able to influence you directly or might be able to influence people around you. Many, many spiritual people have experienced that when they become aware of the spiritual path and make a more firm determination to step onto that path, they encounter various forms of opposition  perhaps from family members, perhaps from spouses, perhaps from people around them, perhaps at work, and it can create a seemingly chaotic situation, at least for a time.

However, it should also be the normal flow of events that as you grow on the spiritual path, as you use the tools, as you call for protection, as you work on your separate selves, the chaos or the upheaval becomes less and you find a new form of equilibrium in a more balanced state. If this does not happen, then I recommend that you make a more serious effort to work on your personal psychology, perhaps even seeking professional help and certainly using the tools to overcome the different selves. But also considering that in the more extreme situation, you might need the help of professionals who can give you a different perspective from the outside that you cannot get from the inside.
