When I saw the movie, “The Matrix” I thought it was a fantastic study in science fiction, a metaphor, for the trance that has overtaken humanity, but now many years later I know better. Truth is stranger than fiction.
What if I were to tell you that the movie points to the underlying truth of the reality we are all immersed in? What if I were to tell you that we are collectively as a species plugged into a reality that has been constructed to keep us asleep and unconscious of what is really happening on a global scale to the earth and to all of humanity?
Don’t shut down, stay with me. You know in some dark recess of your mind that this is true. You have tried to deny what you already know. The stories that we have been told, the reasons and explanations that we have been given for why life is the way it is have had only one purpose, to keep us distracted and paralyzed.
From the cradle to the grave our life force has been extracted to fuel an illusion that serves one purpose only, to empower the creators of the simulation we are locked into, the program of fear and separation, greed, and hatred.
Stay with me. Do not shut down because it is easier to live the illusion than face the awful truth of the false reality we are immersed in.
Do you really believe that the supreme creator loves a select few of its children but hates every one else?
Do you really believe that we have the right to strip and pollute the natural world of its resources, to slaughter and kill other species for pleasure?
Do you really believe that our sole purpose for being alive in this world is to deny its beauty and goodness so that we may escape to some imaginary place in the sky?
Do you really believe that you are happy and fulfilled in your 9am to 5pm existence with 2.5 children, a picket fence and a mortgage whilst consuming this entire planet in an orgy of limitless consumption and greed?
I don’t think you really believe any of these things but you are too scared to stray outside of what you have been forced to believe. It is too fearsome to leave the herd and step outside the boundaries that have been created for us.
We are social creatures. We want to belong to the tribe. Evolution has bred us to stay together, to crave the love and support of each other. We want to belong, so we stay plugged into the group illusion.
I have good news. Even though we are in a trance like state of exhaustion from the constant fear and hatred that is thrown at us in the media, a glitch has appeared in the matrix. The illusion is beginning to fray at the edges.
Even though we are perpetually distracted by trivial pursuits from the fact that we are being poisoned slowly but surely by Franken-food, foul air and polluted waters, by the electromagnetic onslaught on our bodies from the proliferation of wireless devices and cell phone towers. Even thought the stress of daily living has reduced us to the walking dead, the illusion is dissolving.
Look around, and you will see the mirage fading in the distance. You will see that there are some who have already unplugged from the collective madness that envelops the world. Every day, there are some who are waking up out of the stupor that millennia of bludgeoning has reduced us to.
It is not too late. There is still time to save yourself and reclaim your life. It is hard, I know, but others have done it and you can too. How do you start? Believe nothing of what you see and hear that promotes victim-hood, lack, fear, and separation.
Unplug from the virtual reality where the program of the matrix is stored within the collective consciousness of humanity by coming out of your mind and centering in your body. Ground your consciousness into the planet, earth. Believe only what you know to be true in your heart, plug into its intuitive knowing of truth.
Move into the reality of limitless abundance and creativity that has always existed, the reality that we fell out of when we started to believe the lie. Believe against all odds that life is beautiful, that we are inextricably interwoven into the fabric of all that exists.
Believe that ALL is an expression of the Divine. End your ceaseless search for a god outside of you to rule you and accept the truth that you are the sovereign creator of your own life because you have been endowed with the greatest gift of all, free will.
In this day choose to separate from the herd and unplug from the illusion. You will not be left behind. You will not be abandoned. You will join the community of new earth where we are supported in all things as we become the embodiment of the love that we BE.
