Life in the Matrix

For those who have seen the movie “The Matrix” would agree with me that the Matrix itself is a fictitious construct and not the “real world”. The characters effectively “wake up” through desiring truth. But if you follow the rest of the story, it is one based on a struggle for survival – pretty much what they woke up from. So did they actually escape? Their truth changed but nothing effectively got better. To me it portrays life as being one fight after another! Does it have to be that way or is there truly a way out?

To the best of my ability, I will be using some computing terminology to illustrate my meaning. The Matrix according to me:

I believe the Matrix is the real world, it is our belief of how to live in it that is flawed. Simply, the Matrix is the world we live in through our belief systems and emotional state

The general understanding of life in the Matrix is a falsehood that has been passed down through the generations. Each generation teaching the next how to create and live within the Matrix thus adding to the deception. As soon as we are in the womb we automatically absorb the knowledge of the Matrix through the understanding that our mother has of it, through her own experience and that which has been passed down to her. We also absorb information from outside of the womb, from the surroundings of the Matrix itself and its inhabitants: So by the time we are born there is a heap of programming already within us as to what is expected of “Living in the Matrix”.

Our early childhood years is where more data enters us through being part of the Matrix and helps to reinforce the specifics of the program. As we get older we begin to live life through how we understand the Matrix works and start creating our life.

On top of that, we are oblivious to the fact that the Matrix has a Creator who lovingly designed it and had different intentions for the use of it. The Creator’s benevolence gave us all free will to do whatever we want in the Matrix (with our life), and a part of that was that the Creator would not (and does not) interfere with our decisions.

The Creator being the most loving of beings also wanted us to be happy and thus put in place laws to hopefully help us understand when we are doing anything to hurt ourselves, others and constructs within the Matrix: Acts that would cause unhappiness (pain and suffering) and show us the errors within the program. Unfortunately, most of us don’t see the warning signs: They start off subtly and gradually get more apparent, like a malicious virus corrupting more and more data files. Due to the generational data passed down to us, as well as our own choices and actions, our understanding of these signs is misinterpreted by us, distorted or overwritten by the numerous viruses within the Matrix.

The Creator ultimately created a (virus free) platform where we could learn about ourselves and other things within the Matrix and about love. The Creator also gave us the ability to choose to do whatever we wanted to: to live in the lie of our current understanding of the Matrix or to desire the truth as the Creator knows it: that our false thoughts, beliefs and unfelt emotions that are the virus; and that we can live without struggle.

How? We would have to seek out the Creator, to desire to know about living in truth – as the Creator does. But many of us won’t. Why? Because that would mean being willing to deconstruct ALL of the corrupted programming that we currently live our lives by, including our beliefs of who or what the Creator is. To let go of everything we believe is the purpose of the Matrix and how we live in it.

I’m game! . . . Are you?

A Planet in Crisis

Have you noticed of late that the whole planet seems to have taken a crazy-pill! Yep, the whole planet. It is true that storms, floods, famine and drought have been recorded throughout history, but have you observed that there are weather events happening in places that have never had such events before; the intensity and frequency of these out-of-place weather events is becoming more widespread. On top of that, millions of children around the world die every year – still. We cut down rainforests to put cattle on, killing several eco systems for the sake of supporting one. Animals, wild and domesticated now display behaviour that is out of character and strangely resembles the behaviour of the creatures at the top of the food chain (humans). Intolerance and violence amongst different cultures and even the sexes have exacerbated. Retaliation, victimisation and other abhorrent behaviour is recorded and placed on social media and viewed as comedy. And that is just to name a few.

So before asking the question, “What can we do about it?” we need to first acknowledge that there is a problem and see that we are all contributing to it. Yep, you heard me right. We build huge emotional castles to protect us from the big wide world and fill it with anything that helps us feel comfortable and secure. And if we believe in the law of attraction, it only stretches as far as our backyard and only see the good things it provides us and call it happiness. We ignore what is going on around us in the world and in the environment.

We either A) sit back and wonder why there are so many nut-jobs and wackos in this world or B) verbalise our opinions all over social media; it is easy to sprout our opinions all over the internet from the comfort of our castle-of-security. We think by doing that we are taking action. Sorry but that is not action, that is reaction! Action comes from breaking down the walls of the padded castle that we believe is protecting us: In reality it keeps us blind to the truth that we have all contributed to it in some way.

Hmm, what can we do about it? Let’s look at history. History dictates that we should use violence or force. Yes, let’s blow the crap out of all of the innocent people who are in the country or culture we have a discrepancy with. Then we say “We won the war.” Until someone else has an opinion different to our own. Let’s have another war and then another until there is no one else left to have war with.

When will we learn that violence begets violence! It starts with a smack to the face, then a punch in the head, a knife to the gut and a gun to the brain and if that doesn’t work go get your bazooka or missile launcher!

How did it all come to this? We fail to see the connection of what is going on ‘out-there’ to what is going on ‘in-here’ – in our hearts. We are so in our heads – thinking and thinking, that we have lost all sense of moral reasoning. Let’s think away our problems! We fail to realise that we have hardened our heart and closed our eyes to the bigger picture. The plant is in crisis!

So I ask you all how much worse does it all have to get before we say enough is enough, we need to try something different, something that we haven’t tried before – as same old, same old isn’t working – we have been doing it generation after generation.

So how do we fix it?

I am not here to tell you how I think or feel we should fix the problem, but I can offer a suggestion: It is simple: One person at a time! Bring back the focus from ‘out there’ to ‘in here’. If we all start taking responsibility for the turmoil and hatred that we harbour deep inside of us, we can begin to make a difference. When we choose to accept and to look deep within at how we all contributed to the creation of the nut-jobs and the wackos we begin a new phase of human evolution. And the easiest way to do that is by putting ourselves into someone else’s shoes to gain compassion and understanding that we are all human – all scared little children in a big person’s body, chucking tantrums, pretending to be adults.

At the end of the day, what I or anyone else says is irrelevant. It is up to us as individuals to choose to take a long hard look at ourselves. It is up to us to choose to change ourselves and thus change the world. To take our blinkers off – before removing our neighbours’.

A Moment of Honesty

I am excited to share this about my life and what I have written and I’d love to hear your comments. Many may read this and feel it is depressing, and others will see something greater. Some may see or feel how this relates to them, but I say now that it relates to many!

…………….

I have come to the realisation that we as humans are living life back to front. Much emphasis is put on achieving physical goals and sometimes spiritual growth, but none is being placed on Soul based development. I thought I was pursuing this until now! I see us all as neglecting to seek Soul based knowledge – and if our real self is our Soul, would it not make sense to want to learn more about who we really are (a Soul) rather than focusing on what is happening on TV or about buying that special car or diamond ring? Well I am interested, and so I write this for me.

I realise that personal Soul growth is most important and should be my no. 1 focus. If I imagine for a moment in a simplified manner that I, yes ME, as being the cause of what happens to or around me – then if I am angry (or any other emotion), then I am the one that has to look at that emotion. But instead of feeling through this anger I choose to either; punish myself or project it out onto others. I generally do this through blame, as blaming someone or something else other than myself is so much simpler, right? I blame others for how I feel. I make justifications for why I do these things, I also minimalize and deny it so that I can feel better about myself, totally removing all responsibility.

Oh how easy it is to blame others for how I feel and for what is happening to me or not happening. I feel much power from removing all responsibility for my actions from myself. This IS the fictitious world I have created around me, my façade! I live through this façade, oh how powerful and special I am. I can be anyone this way. No one has to know the real me. I can surround myself with people and things that keep the illusion going – a wonderful husband and a lovely life! I can even appear to be more loving, compassionate and caring, heck, I can be queen of my illusionary castle.

At the end of the day though (whenever that day is), I will need to face reality….and why do I have to? Because at that time the pain of my denial will be so great that I will call out louder than I ever have before. I will call and call and call! I will ask for someone, anyone, to come and rid me of the pain, a pain which I have created through my ignorance and arrogance. “Oh please won’t someone save me from my torment!” I call out to God. But the response is silence, but why, as I know God exists, which is more than most people. Again I cry out. Still nothing. Then I realise, even now I have not learnt my lesson. I am still waiting for someone to save me. I am still fooling myself as I have not changed. I still get angry, I still have emotions of grandeur, act out of addictions of purposeful ignorance, arrogance and wilful denial. So the pain continues, festers and grows.

It would have been so much more loving and easy way back when I was younger, but I was not aware of what I know now, that everything that happens to me is to trigger me and show me that I am denying God’s truth and because of that I create pain and darkness. It is time to take responsibility and not blame others for how I feel and what has happened to me. One day when I choose to open up my heart and feel the truth of the situation, I will find that the answer was always there, always trying to assist me – designed to assist me.

In time I will become weary of the pain and know that no one is coming to save me. I will in my last desperate attempt to call for help, I call for God again, and I wonder what will be different about how I call this time?

My reflection on my life will show me familiar things, but not in a way I have ever seen them and in a way that I had never conceived of seeing or knowing. I will now choose to be humble and feel the pain of what I have done through all of my erroneous beliefs. And right there and then I will realise that I have up until now, never opened my heart. I am asking from my Soul. Truth will flood in and for the first time I will know beyond doubt that God is real. I will feel the truth of how I have caused others pain, and the animals, the planet and myself. I will see that everything is about me, but not in a narcissistic way, but rather that my growth in light or darkness is up to me and that there is truth out there that I have been reluctant to notice until now. My openness and desire creates a connection with God through my sincerity to want to know His Divine Truth, and I will be certain that this is the only thing that will set me free. For this is the only gateway to Her Divine Love and the Divine Kingdom.

So – It begins and ends with me! What does this mean? It means that no one is coming to save me! No-one! I need to make the choice to be willing to save myself and not through the Willpower of the mind, but through the emotional Will of my Soul. And in this moment I realise that I have been the most honest I have ever been in my life thus far. So this story is not one of despair, but one of humility, a genuine sincerity to be real.

Who’s in your head?

What if 90-99% of the thoughts in your head were not yours!

Would that freak you out?

Would it be too hard to believe?

What exactly does that mean?

Regardless of your belief systems lets explore the possibility.

What does that mean?

As we think, we hear our thoughts as a voice. Right? Right! But what if those thoughts or that voice is not always ours. It isn’t our thought. It isn’t our voice – even though it sounds like it, as it is the same most of the time.

Who is it then?

Billions of people have passed over throughout history, all of them now in another dimension, for now let’s call it the spirit world – Our spirit lives on after our physical body dies. So now there are billions of spirits that can talk to us just like the billions that are still on Earth in a physical sense.

Why do they do this or pretend to be us?

Some spirits miss the Earth and the life and experiences that they had while there were here (including good and bad habits). Some we invited to talk through us in our sleep state – they are like friends we hang out with but are in spirit form. Just as we build rapport with people here we do the same on a spiritual level. Some guide and teach. Others like to control us to get the experiences they miss and act through us. They can purely be drawn to us due through similar ‘addictions’ or desires that we have. Through our choice to avoid ‘life’ opens the door to spirits living through us from time to time, hence the term, “he/she isn’t herself today”. We can also become ‘overcloaked’ (usually happens after a traumatic event) where we totally flip out and another spirit takes control. This is noticeable as great wisdom beyond the normal means of that particular individual or the opposite end of the scale and being totally reckless – or anywhere in between.

How can we avoid this?

The choice to be grounded at all times (in one’s body), so that you can experience the highs and lows of life and not run away when things get tough. Work through fears about spirits. Have a desire to see/feel what is truly there in a spiritual sense. Ultimately: Connect to God and self – have a desire to get to know yourself with God.

Did you know you can do this to other people on the Earth as well?

Generally in our sleepstate, but can be while ‘out of our body’ while awake, we visit others and act through them as through they were us – we may see it as a dream. We can be channelled by a psychic the same way spirits can be. Interesting hey!

Schizophrenic, bi polar and manic depressant conditions and even dementia are real – real spirits conversing to or through these people, sometimes more than one at a time. Mental conditions are not just due to a chemical imbalance in the brain (why is the imbalance there??). Yes these people may seem crazy to most, but they can be helped.

That is a brief look at the subject.

Something to think about!

Simple Choices

I think back to my life before I began to desire to know God, without the religious connotations, and I marvel at my growth however small it my seem to me at times, it is growth nevertheless. I have spoken before on how truth can change as I grow and I see it more often. And once understood by the heart, it is noticeable in the world around me.

A few posts ago I talked about “The Divine Connection” I used words that made emotional processing sound like something you have to work at – and that is not the only post I said it in either. I now know this not to be so. The Divine Connection is about surrender and experiencing that surrender, as in those moments we experience – feel our self and God.

I believe there is great misconception about what God is. It would be easier to describe what God isn’t: Despite what the bible may say; God will not pick sides, tell anyone what to do – as we have free will to choose as we please. God will not punish us or send his/her wrath or angels to smite us. There is no vengeance or coercion. There is no favouritism and God will not do for us that which we should be doing for ourselves; God is not there to do it for us. (S)He will not save us – and neither will Jesus. Through our connection to God we will learn how to save ourselves! This was the message that Jesus came to share with humanity over 2000 years ago – and is still trying to share with those who choose to listen.

God will however, love us and answer prayers of the soul (not of the mind). For God so loved us that (s)he created laws that govern the universe and everything in it. The laws of ’cause and effect’ are a great example and work with the other laws. If we live within the laws in a harmonious way the effect is joy/happiness and if we live disharmoniously or break these laws the effect will be pain/unhappiness. Don’t believe me, look at the law of aerodynamics: ever known anyone who jumped/fell from the top of a skyscraper and came out unscathed? The laws don’t choose if you are good or bad – they are what they are. Or how many times have you overeaten knowing in advance that the result will be pain/discomfort. The laws are not punishment: They are boundaries of love and by crossing them we choose to not love (hate) ourselves or others in that moment. It’s not God that punishes us but we ourselves through our own ignorance and defiance. A sequence of simple choices can change our life.

It’s about love, it always has been. We can choose to remain ignorant and defiant or we can choose to stop hurting ourselves. It is up to us as individuals to stop our own suffering. It is our choice to love…. or to hate.

Truth is Infinite

Every moment of the day we can choose either misery or happiness, love or hate, light or darkness. This choice either lifts our vibration or lowers it. The higher our vibration the more truth we have access to. Truth is as infinite as the source. Be hungry for truth as we are always able to learn more truth. Holding onto something that is truth for you today may not serve you tomorrow. .

Always strive to be better, to raise your vibration.

“For a man at the top of the giant oak can see more than the one standing near the roots”.

Live in it – as knowledge of truth is nothing until applied.

“You only truly understand something by sharing it with someone else until they understand it”.

Understanding Life

To me life is about finding Peace! It is about being calm and patient enough to connect with self (and to source).

I believe we all have a past that makes up the sum of who we are today. We all react differently to whatever life dishes out. We all interpret what happens to us in our own unique way. As in life also in death – I see now that everyone has a story, even “demons”.  That is why it isn’t about fighting our demons; it isn’t about fighting at all. It is quite the opposite. That being said, we can still stand up for what we believe in – without angst. I feel fighting stems from a lack of understanding. But to do that we must let go of fear and to desire to see things for what they really are.

In my own life I am becoming aware of how my childhood beliefs have carried through into my adult life. I am also becoming aware of the behaviours and unrealistic survival mechanisms I created as a result of these false beliefs. Once prudent for a child yet debilitating to an adult. I held onto these lies as though they were truth. Now when I become aware of one I consciously focus on it with intention to locate the cause. Some beliefs can be changed simply by replacing it with a new one, while others have an emotional core. I find it is through the constructive expression (or experience) of these emotional cores that allows the release, bringing healing of a higher nature. It is quite fascinating!

By choosing understanding, I choose to face the truth about myself. By making this choice I have also discovered that I have avoided many of the good things in life as well, such as joy, fun and abundance in all forms. It is not just about clearing the disharmony, but also allowing the harmonious to be part of my life. I now see more joy and wonderment in everything. I meet people who are happy and at peace with themselves and the rest of the world. I feel a sense of freedom as I breathe in a higher truth.

My journey is my journey and I don’t need to rush it. All I know is that I am moving forward in love through understanding. I have heard it said many times that it is about the journey and everyone’s journey is unique. It is about constant learning. There is no right or wrong, there just is! In this day and age there seems to a sense of urgency, everyone is in a hurry. There is little time for rest and quiet or solitude. I feel it is because we don’t ask enough questions about life. How can we at that pace! Question everything, including this! Does how you are living your life make sense? Does it really? Do your beliefs serve you or keep you imprisoned in a fictitious façade?

So to finish I would like to conclude that patience has many degrees, with many lessons and an even greater number of rewards. Choice is everything: we can choose understanding or ignorance. I personally choose to move forward in understanding. Anyone care to join me?
