And their purpose in the painful learning schemeThe agenda of the graha which occupy bhava-6 represent, whether consciously or unconsciously, enslavement either physically or mentally, socially or financially, biochemically, sexually, or psychologically.

Everyone in Earth has endured lifetimes spent in slavery. Some beings have scheduled enslavement repeatedly as a learning exercise. Once enslaved, human potential allows protective survival coping mechanisms. One begins to conform to what seem as materially fixed conditions of involuntary servituder.

Aid and Assistance

Deputies and Deputation

Even if one is born into a social culture that forbids explicit slavery, one may as the plan requires become enslaved to a drug or a hormonally driven behavioral pattern (biochemical additions).

One may become enslaved to financial indebtedness, marital conflict and abuse, or inner narratives of exploitation and injustice. One may become enslaved to the will or another, or to the march of time.

There are many ways to have Learning Pathway experience of servitude, exploitation, abuse, humiliation, and war. There are also many ways to resolve and remediate the condition of imbalance, once it is recognized.

The trick is to identity the unfair conditions and acknowledge one's own purpose in generating the miserable experience of apparent powerlessness.

Several iterations of the pattern may be required to convince the native to look inward for solutions, rather than blame outward apparitions.
