Paradigm for A Better World – Part 1: To the Point

We live in a world where we are told be get tough and move with the times or be left behind. Technology impacts our lives more every day and connecting with each other can be instantaneous. Yet I believe that we are more disconnected than ever.

We are supposed to be an advanced civilization yet there is more turmoil and discord in this day and age. To us, cave people seemed primitive and barbaric. Nowadays we have etiquette and political correctness (hence why I used the term “cave people”), yet at our core we are still primitive and barbaric.

Let me explain. Over generations we have learned how to behave so that we don’t appear like our fore-bearers (cave people). However, we haven’t really changed much. We may have changed outwardly but internally, in our hearts, we are still primitive. We even have what we call “primitive nature”. And instead of changing what is at our core (our nature), we have moved to force change with our minds. From the surface perspective it seems to work, but once again our core has not changed. Whenever we are placed into a situation where our lives are at threat or of those we care about, we will react through this primitive nature – it is an automatic response. That which is truly in our core will surface in times of trauma and threat. It’s times like this that our real motives become apparent.

So ultimately, we have not evolved as such, but rather created survival mechanisms to avoid our fears. Fear is the greatest threat on this planet, it has been for millennia – along with self-interest (what is in it for me?)  I will talk about fear more another time.

Now at this point you may be wondering, “what is wrong with wanting to protect oneself and those you care about?” Putting a few people above others causes separations and disconnection. That is why the concept of family (and culture) as we know it is actually harmful. We are all equal (or should be). We are all brothers and sisters on this world and until we realise this, in our hearts, we will have separation.

Primitive nature only exists because we have not evolved – progressed beyond it. We have no idea what is beyond it, as we don’t realise that we can evolve beyond it. We are too busy following our self-interest and “surviving”, that we don’t acknowledge our selfishness and look rather at how we can be more.

We are still looking at the mind as being the dominating factor in our lives, mental intelligence is looked up to and aspired to, and told emotions are weak. But our psyche is not mind dominated, it’s emotional. And it is our emotions/feelings that we are all running away from (by the way fear is emotional). It is what keeps us primal. We are an emotionally cold world – unless it meets our self-interest we really don’t care. By getting tougher and moving faster we move further away from progress and evolution.

The world is in chaos. Something needs to change. Using our minds alone, doesn’t work. It’s obvious! We still go to war; we deface the land and strip oceans. We damage everything and everyone at the same time through these actions. I don’t see that as progress. Our cleverness is destructive, not creative. Continuing this way is mere stupidity.

Progress involves connecting to our core, and this can only be done through the sub-conscious. Only by reconnecting to our inner emotional being can we become truly more loving, compassionate and creative, hence evolving beyond our primal urges.

But we won’t know this as scientific fact unless someone takes a leap of faith to prove it.

I’m willing to at least question the possibility, are you?

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?
