By attempting to put some words to something that is timeless and unvoicable I recognize those who are Friends traversing the icy road home, those whose voices join in a perceptual hum of Truth, the Real that Is.
Being Real in a False World
Much is being written and spoken about in the current pondering of the human condition, many are questioning whether we are living in a simulation or as some say a video game or movie like reality. Before anyone rejects or accepts this it is important, no vital that you engage the power of your Observer, that is the you that doesn’t have a persona that is outside the program.
“It’s a pickle.” said the Oracle in the movie Matrix and indeed it is.
The Oracle: [to Neo] We are all here to do what we are all here to do…
The Oracle: Do you see her die?
The Oracle: You have the sight now, Neo. You are looking at the world without time.
Neo: Then why can’t I see what happens to her?
The Oracle: We can never see past the choices we don’t understand.
Neo: Are you saying I have to choose whether Trinity lives or dies?
The Oracle: No, you’ve already made the choice. Now you have to understand it.
Neo: No. I can’t do that. I won’t.
The Oracle: Well, you have to.
The Oracle: Because you’re the One.
Neo: But if you already know, how can I make a choice?
The Oracle: Because you didn’t come here to make the choice, you’ve already made it. You’re here to try to understand *why* you made it. I thought you’d have figured that out by now.
The Oracle: So, let’s get the obvious stuff out of the way.
Neo: You’re not human, are you?
The Oracle: It’s tough to get any more obvious than that.
The Oracle: It seems that every time we meet, I have nothing but bad news. I’m sorry about that, I surely am. But for what it’s worth, you’ve made a believer out of me. Good luck, kiddo.
Neo: Are there other programs like you?
The Oracle: Oh, well, not like me. But… look, see those birds? At some point a program was written to govern them. A program was written to watch over the trees, and the wind, the sunrise, and sunset. There are programs running all over the place. The ones doing their job, doing what they were meant to do, are invisible. You’d never even know they were here. But the other ones, well, we hear about them all the time.
Neo: I’ve never heard of them.
The Oracle: Oh, of course you have. Every time you’ve heard someone say they saw a ghost, or an angel. Every story you’ve ever heard about vampires, werewolves, or aliens, is the system assimilating some program that’s doing something they’re not supposed to be doing.
Neo: I suppose the most obvious question is, how can I trust you?
The Oracle: Bingo. It is a pickle. No doubt about it. The bad news is there’s no way if you can really know whether I’m here to help you or not, so it’s really up to you. You just have to make up you on damned mind to either accept what I’m going to tell you, or reject it.
The Oracle: Candy?
Neo: Do you already know if I’m going to take it?
The Oracle: Wouldn’t be much of an Oracle if I didn’t.
Neo: Why are you here?
The Oracle: Same reason. I love candy.
Neo: What happens if I fail?
The Oracle: Then Zion will fall.
Neo: What does he want?
The Oracle: What do all men with power want? More power.
What I am about to write are the ramblings of my mind intertwined with the ramblings of many other minds, for myself this is the pickle indeed.
For many years I have listened to others express themselves on this subject and myriads of re-searchers all the while looking inside to find connector points, places in me where I resonate with what is being shared. I am not a believer, self reflection and the focus of a long life view allows me to know myself to some extent… so while I experienced many events, people, places, etc. I didn’t believe in them, I experienced them. This is something we all do either consciously or unconsciously, we take into ourselves experiences, data if you will and then express it in multiple forms, few have stopped this long enough to stay comfortable in silence, in the void.
Until one wakes up within the system and becomes an anomaly there is an underlying belief that this false program is just the way life is when in reality that couldn’t be further from the truth. These programmed ‘beliefs in other’ are what keeps the system running. The belief in any outside authority, the most prevalent of course is the belief in the almighty god engendered in our human psyche via the Abramic religions of Christianity, Judaism and Muslim and other religions that precede these.
This is my shall we call it argument with new age-new thought programmed religions and all belief systems, in many ways they have the keys that All Life is Good, in Truth Life is Love, etc. However they believe in this and reinstate it without ever coming to the waking horror of the moment that this belief isn’t strong enough, does not contain power enough to take them to the place of experiencing what they believe. Inevitably they fall short as the body deteriorates or when some unexpected event uproots them and pops the bubble of their belief. This is my condition too, one repeated enough times that I must confront it.
This is true for almost all people, we still suffer from the deeply embedded programs, the result of being unwhole in a collective of fractured psyches, we are searching for our wholeness. our holiness. To truly confront this reality takes courage, moments of enraptured solitude, contact with Nature and Self in a natural world where Spirit can be heard.
As we wake up to the “horror of the situation” (as Gurdjieff described it) and realize the madness of the world – with sleeping people “dreaming to be awake”, as well as our own sleep state and conditioning – it can feel like we’re caught in a prison, and that analogy is correct in many ways. ~ Bernhard Guenther
For the many who were born awake and those who have scrambled through the dark brambles and endless labyrinths of the mind there is the confront with the horror of the situation, it can’t be otherwise for every moment of everyday whether watching the screens of TVs or computers our whole body knows the trauma being inflicted as countless bombs fall, as innocent children are taken from parents via Satanic ritual abuse, pedophile rings or via the nefarious poison of vaccines. There is literally nowhere we look in the world we call home that isn’t being purposely destroyed. We see this and the pervading question is what can we do about it? For in Being we are also called to doing … from stillness to action.
Then there are many who I know personally that are dealing with galactic consciousness which brings a unique visceral suffering, their own real issues of not fitting in the system. And woe to those who declare themselves free for they will be tested to their greatest strength.
This is a state of total cognitive dissonance, no wonder most people stay in the ‘one world view’ being promulgated through institutionalized propaganda, it falsely feels safer and for the ‘lucky’ ones little bubbles of realities can be created. For the mass of humankind however this is not true and therefore a quick calculation of the mind tells us that there is no Truth in this view, it is illusory and ephemeral.
We are given examples of strong belief moving mountains such as when a person has a spontaneous remission of cancer or another disease … isolated as they are they do show us something about our abilities or do they? Lets assume for a moment what the Oracle said is true … that the choice was made long ago and we are asked to understand why we made that choice. Somewhere inside we do know, the trick is to bring that knowing to conscious awareness, to really be Trinity and jump through the fine meshed matrix unseen, not an easy feat.
Many personas on the alt media circuit (circus) are saying we are the creators .. okay I then say show me your creation and for the most part all I find is ego regurgitation. And yet there is a truth in these proclamations, we are Creators and we are creators. We are the ones creating through programs keeping the endless looping cycles running and way too few take any response ability for this creation. And then as Creators omg! fewer still accentuate the immeasurable responsibility of claiming thus, old goddesses and gods of the past made some really bad decisions that we are still paying for.
When the circle completes, when the alpha meets the omega, when the serpent swallows its on tail then we shall collapse all the programs, then we shall be free … and that is the jump of infinity, the jump into the unknown. Choice and free will play big in this, every millisecond we are either consciously choosing or not … when I say choosing in conscious awareness I mean we either are the observer of our choices which would bring my mind back to what the Oracle said … we are in process of comprehending why we made these choices all along. We are blind most of the time so we must act on faith, some aspect of self in self in Self in which we gamble everything on.
Simulation or Real? That is the question.
The image I choose for this writing is of a rose, for a rose is a rose is a rose … it can not be other than a rose. If I were to say to myself I am the Rose then I would know myself as not being able to be other than I am… I would not need to prove, to research, to proclaim, to teach, to speak, to write, to be other than my eternal essence. I would gamble everything on Love.
So what of Love? Word, feeling, or knowing? Real or false? Ah dear ones, that is the question after all.
The feeling that overwhelms me at times is that it is all so simple and is right before our proverbial noses and still we don’t see it for the what it is. I share these feeling with many friends who have this inner knowing that when the veil is finally pierced we will find great laughter. Oh, the foibles of self importance we will say and time will collapse along with our laughter.
