Manifestation and the Problem of Interdependent Origin

Manifestation is a subject that many have tackled in various ways, using various tactics. However, there is a problem with most techniques that seems to have slipped by unnoticed by most. It is the problem of interdependent origin. The idea is that one problem will have multiple causes. Each "problem" is likely to be linked up with tons of other issues in one's life. Hence, to look at it in isolation is a mistake. Yes, in some cases, it will be possible to solve the problem, if it happens to be a relatively isolated issue. In others, it will be more difficult, but still possible. That is why the best manifestation processes always allow for deeper issues to arise and resolve them.

However, in the larger scheme of things, problems are Gordian knots. You either solve all of them at once, or not at all. Each one will slightly influence the other, and if they are not cleared, the manifest result of one project is likely to be skewed in unexpected ways. That's why manifestation is tricky.

The key then will be to cut at the heart of the knot, the part from which all this emanates. It has to do with the self, unsurprisingly enough, and the sense of self/identity. Before problems become physical, they arise in the mind. Look at the Paradox of Manifestation for a deeper discussion to this end.
