4 Positive attitudes evoke outer Do not confine in those limitations -What to do? Do not focus on the negative. Focusing negative aggravates the problem Focusing the positive & shift in attitudes will make the circumstance favor -What are the practical steps? -What is the end result? -What is the practical meaning? Lifes response by Changing the outer circumstance and bring sudden benefits, Luck etc.., Despite her limitation, she practiced unconditional goodwill for Elizabeth. Generous goodwill of magnanimity, supreme commonsense of ripe age and shameless mercenary practicality dwell together in Charlotte Do not confine to Materialistic Limitations Materialist view Charlottes view Not beautiful, 27 yrs old, no money for dowry, no status etc.., Life came to her by presenting itself Collins to him and a reasonable status in her life What is that - What she did - Life Response - The weakest can accomplish if the circumstances favour with the right attitudes.

Do the best what you can do and leave the results to the Mother -What are the practical steps? -What is the end result? -What is the practical meaning? It drives away Bingley from Netherfield to London Expectation cancels or postpones Life will reward for the positive inner attitude Bingley would not come as long he is expected by various parties like Jane, Liz and Mrs Bennet.

6 He didnt react during Lydias elopement and practiced positive values. Went himself to London to find him He is more interested in picking holes in his wifes scheme than in the work on hand. It is a moment of triumph for him to thwart the wife Negative Attitude -What it will do? Change to positive attitudes & values -What to do? Take responsibility for your life Refuse to blame others for the problems Do not expect others to solve your problem Recognize other mans point of view Do your best, consecrate the acts and leave the results to the Mother. -What are the practical steps? -What is Lifes Response? Negative and Positive Attitudes Mr. Bennets Negative Attitude His unsavoury sarcasm is a negative vibration The triumph in meanness directly brings misfortune Sarcasm is the small victory issuing from a great defeat Finally, it bring Lydias Elopement What is the meaning It will attract negative events Lifes response by Changing the outer circumstance and bring sudden benefits, Luck etc.., Mr. Bennets Reversal (Positive Attitude) He took the full responsibility for his actions.

7 Initiatives It will destroy the positive possibilities -What will it do? Mother asks us not to take initiative -What to do? Ego takes initiative and that becomes ones karma. To every foolish initiative Life has occasions that can countermand -What is the theory? -What is the end result? -What is the meaning? Carolines ruse destroyed her chances with Darcy Do not take initiatives Life will bring rewards for the inner nature of non-initiative Caroline adversely comments about Elizabeth several times to Darcy. Her every Initiative ends up bringing Darcy & Eliza closer Small triumphs of life are more fascinating than the large victories of life. Caroline may enjoy thwarting Elizabeth and Jane overmuch. What she did- Who is her Opposite - We always see with Mother that SHE gives more than we ignorantly asked for, but never realise that it is because we have not taken initiative in that area. Carolines Initiative (with negative attitudes) Charlotte and her Good will What happened - What is Lifes meaning - Eliza reaches Darcy through Caroline Darcy comes to her through Charlotte. 6 Theory P&P Example

8 Acts Continues to Repeat Consecrate all the Lifes responses to Mother (Both Positive & Negative) Be conscious and consecrate before acting on anything -What to do? Arguments repeat themselves as they are full of energy News is endlessly repeated till it is worn out (Vital absorption of social energy) When an event repeats, it means we are missing something. -What is the theory? -What is the meaning? No act ends there. It continues to Repeat Darcys act of saying Elizabeth Tolerable Elizabeth repeats to Darcy No gentleman & the last man she would marry Life events revealed the truth as the days go and she has to come back to him by herself again. Example 1 - To let Her do what we can do is to let Her do it better and it is consecration. Consecration avoids the procedure of the process and gives the result through the Light. Consecration yields the final result in the beginning Acts Repeat (P&P Examples) Example 2 - Darcy influenced Bingley to London and avoid him marrying Jane. Life made that act to reverse himself by bringing Bingley back to Netherfield and to marry Jane. Example 3 - Collins proposal to Eliza which she feels shame to her. She feels the same when that act repeats to her with Darcys proposal. 7 Theory P&P Example
