You always encounter the same events because nothing changes in you!
Like attracts like.
A particle of paradise moves towards paradise, a particle of hell towards hell.
According to Lupelius’ philosophy our states of Being attract the events that correspond to them, and events cause us to return to those same states. Only the will can stop this endless circle, this never-ending mechanical game and break the hynotic cycle in which man’s existence is circumscribed. Thought is creative. Thought creates. Events are the materialization of our thoughts, of our states of Being. Therefore, states and events are the same thing. States are produced in the Being of every man and events manifest themselves in his life, over time, and seem to originate independently of his will. In reality we are the ones who have intensely invoked them and unsconsciously created them.
Whether positive or negative, a man’s thoughts are always creative and they will unfailingly find a way to materialize. Our thoughts, like hand-written invitations, sent and then forgotten, attract events that correspond to them. In due course, when we are no longer even thinking about them, circumstances, meetings, events, problems and accidents, downfalls and failures, knock at our door like unwelcome guests with a secret and longstanding invitation nevertheless. Only neglect of our states of Being, which are the true cause of such events, makes them appear to be sudden and unexpected.
The unexpected always requires a lengthy preparation.
No external event can happen to a man without his consent, albeit unconscious. Nothing can happen to him without it first passing through the filter of his psychology. Therefore, thinking is a very powerful process. What we then call facts, events, experiences and all manner of occurrences in one’s life are states of Being which are already marching towards those who are in tune with them. Inner states are external events just waiting for the right occasion to manifest.
The quality of our emotions, the breadth of our thoughts and the states of mind that we experience this very instant will decide what will then become visibly manifest and the nature of the events that will materialize in our lives.
Thinking is Destiny.
The higher our Thoughts the greater our Life.

Existence on Earth is our great School … A School of life which in the eyes of ordinary men appears to be a prison.
We need to learn how to turn our vision upside down. Whatever men normally perceive as difficulty and misfortune, whatever they curse and try to avoid at all costs, is actually the most precious material for transforming their psychology of death into a psychology of life. Life through this world is a School for Gods. Confusion, doubt, chaos, crisis, anger; despair and pain are all propitious conditions for growth.

If you don’t succeed, you’ll have to go down the ordinary routes: those of time and experience. It will take years and years before that lost opportunity presents itself again in order for you to enter higher zones of the Being, towards understanding and integrity. In any case, you’ll have to repeat that examination, if you’re lucky enough to have another opportunity.
