Наполеон всегда верил в судьбу и провидение - в высшие силы, которые его хранят.
Higher forces are the powers of the magical world, what is higher (stronger) than the ordinary terrestrial (physical and social) laws and institutions, and to which the earthly life obeys imperceptibly. The higher forces give out the Destinations to people, insert the Mission, prepare the Man for the Lessons, equip the Retribution, create obstacles and leave the Signs in their life, which can only be seen by a person attentive to them or an initiate.
As an option, the Higher Powers talk with us through our feelings and intuition. If we felt something without justification, we either have stupidities and glitches, or our intuition whispers something to us. "A person does not really want to get on a plane (provided that there is no phobia and usually this does not happen!), But it’s very necessary to fly." He grits his teeth still on the ground, and later learns that the plane is being broken. "
Belief in the Higher Forces is characteristic of people with an irrational picture of the world, and first of all these are children and people of primitive cultures. Among the adults of Western civilization, the belief in the Higher Forces is more common among women and less often among men, increases closer to old age and in situations of proximity of death. Like any faith, faith in the Higher Forces has many roots in family upbringing and is often broadcast through literature of religious or mystical content.
Higher powers are not always bad. Parents for the child are also Higher powers, but they tell him that it’s time to get up, they cook him breakfast, take care of him, protect him from a terrible neighbor’s dog and send him to school. These are the Higher Forces, which bring him up as a future adult, help him grow up. But if the parents, like the Higher Forces, form a feeling of weakness in the child, accustom him to the fact that he can not do himself any lessons, do not prepare breakfast, or iron his shirts, and develop a sense of dependence: "Mom, do not go, me without you scary! ", such Higher forces stand in the way of the formation of a healthy and independent personality. From such a child will grow infantile, a man-child.
Remember who infants are: they are adults with children’s self-consciousness. This is a man who can not lift himself off the couch, because it is very difficult and higher than him. This is a girl who can not decide to go to the dentist, because it’s terribly scary, because it can be painful. They are students who do not learn anything during the semester, hoping that some miracle will happen to the session and they will be lucky ... And if they are not lucky, then you can get upset, cry, then you will be sorry - and again everything is normal. You can even eat a cake. This is the infantile.
What are the Higher Forces common in today’s practical psychology?
• The unconscious is bigger and stronger than our tiny consciousness. How much our unconscious is friends with us, read from Freud ... No, he is not friendly.
• If you go against your own desires, you will get a severe internal conflict and inevitably lose. You are small, you will lose.
• Whatever your feelings, they need to be accepted, otherwise you can not do anything with them. If your feelings lead you to death, you will go to death.
• Love is a great mysterious power that can not be avoided and with which you can not help it. And do not you dare think.
• Everyone has his Fate. The one who is friends with her, Fate leads, and drags all others.
• Nothing in our life happens simply because the world gives you this for some reason. If you guess - well done, do not guess - you’re worse.
• Be attentive to the signs of the World. Go against the signs - how to write against the wind.
• Only by guessing and finding your Destination (what the Higher Forces planned you for), you can find your happiness. Believe and hope. Some people are lucky. (see I’m small, the world is big)
If the Higher Forces tell a person that he will cope, he will be able to - these are the Higher Forces supporting the person. They raise their self-esteem with their authority, give me confidence, make me go forward and do not lose heart in the face of obstacles. And for a mass person, for a person who is not strong, perhaps the belief in such Higher Powers is good. "The universe is friendly," "Our unconscious cares about us," "Love accidentally comes on, / When you do not expect it at all, / And every evening will immediately / So surprisingly good, and you sing ...", "A man who has felt his Destination will cope with any difficulties "- all these attitudes and suggestions about the Higher Powers may once bear a completely positive content. However, one must not forget about the other: all these attitudes, so common in modern practical psychology and psychotherapy - the consequences of betrayal of a scientific position. This is a consequence of the fact that practical psychology has not yet decided to focus on science.
Science, like a good mother, protects us from mistakes. Science, as a demanding dad, makes us think about what we say and do. We need science the same way as each of us needs childhood. An adult, developed, and wise person can go beyond scientific limits, he will use his freedom from science for good. He, advising an insecure child, will come up with something completely unscientific, but the child will blossom and spread his shoulders. A great specialist, a conscious master can do anything. Can everyone do the rest?
No. All the rest is only scientific.
Higher powers and supernatural
Higher powers are often called supernatural forces. When an inexperienced person sees an unusual phenomenon, he is usually unable to explain how this is possible. We admired reading Sh.Holms, how he could cut absolutely incomprehensible, and after "elementary, Watson", it was necessary to smile only. So most often it happens with the supernatural.
