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. 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. ~ The Oracle, The Matrix
The movie The Matrix was a blockbuster hit and a sensation that still has people talking about it. My own experience with this movie very much resembled the state of pure energy and incomprehensible entities that don Juan often made reference to. My earlier post regarding The Predator was posted on another public forum to which it received quite a large number of comments and responses. The forum was not specific to the teachings of Castaneda, but rather, a site where people are attempting to move into an evolutionary realm of conscious awareness.
There were those, like me, who saw the post as reality, people who have heightened their awareness and as a result have the ability to connect to knowledge in the manner through which Neo, the Oracle, Morpheus and Trinity had experienced. To others, the post was perceived as demonic and fear based, a mere story that only serves to distract from the greater good. Numerous respondents implored me to go into the light, open myself to healing and operate from my heart center. And yet, the journey of a warrior is one that facilitates their ability to hold the light and darkness in balance to maneuver through this earth walk in joy, love and deep levels of compassion with a level of awareness that is sometimes overwhelming.
In hindsight it is comforting for me to know that so many people are committed to walking their path completely grounded (or in some cases ungrounded) in love because love is a fierce force and its ability to heal incomparable. The point of the post was to allow those who sat on the fence with this perception to come more fully into it and as a result have the ability to create a bridge for these perceptible forces and to hold them in balance through awareness of their mutual existence. And it worked because there has been an unfolding of further conversation specific to this end that clearly indicates that some had been pushed enough to assist them in deepening their awareness by allowing them to move their assemblage points from its fixated position.
The intention for introducing this information outside of a group of people who already understand it is to facilitate the potential to access a higher level awareness that allows others to see the complexity and vastness of our universe. To attempt to understand and begin to extrapolate the necessary information that may ultimately allow humanity to remove itself from the grasp of this foreign installation, this mindset that does not belong to us but to which we have been puppets for far too long.
Humanity has to stop blaming itself and each other, once and for all, for the imbalances in our lives that cause us to constantly point fingers and place blame. It is time to return to our inherent nature in connection to the earth and each other, not through implying that everyone adhere to a strict code of compliance but through gaining ultimate freedom from the stories and manipulations that this energetic force of other-worldly awareness would have us succumb to. As long as we continue to play its game we will never have the capacity to truly function from the totality of being our authentic selves.
In conclusion suffice it to say that there really is only perception. There are millions of energetic lines of awareness, or fibers as I like to call them, moving and floating throughout the universe and to believe that we or any of us has the answer is outrageously self-important. As strongly as some may feel about the particular information held within this band of awareness, others may not ever touch upon it or if they do, may choose not to travel its length. It’s easier to grab onto the fibers that vibrate the most, they are visible to nearly everyone through one sensory field or another. And perhaps, just perhaps, it really is all an illusion and as The Oracle said, it “is the system assimilating some program that’s doing something they’re not supposed to be doing” which returns us quite succinctly to “gate, gate, paragate, parasamgate, bodhi svaha” or “crossing to the other shore” from the Heart Sutra; attaining the perfection of wisdom, the Prajna Paramita. How you get there, if there is a there to get to, depends upon which lines you choose to follow and the ability to hold it all in balance. Just dance!
