What is the Matrix?
“There are two ways to change things: Either you are forced to change or you have the intuition to change.” – Yogi Bhajan
The Matrix is my thinking mind. It is the construct that houses my program. The construct was blank when I was born, and the program was written as I aged. The program was based on where I was born, when I was born, my parents, my community, my traumas, etc., and all the information that I poured into my brain without questioning.
The program told me what I wanted and showed me the map to get it. Go to school until you are 25, work until you are 65 and then if I still have my health, find ways to entertain yourself until I die. Make widgets, climb mountains, collect more stuff than everyone else, and above all else, don’t be different; conform.
I was forced to change when trauma and pain woke me up to the fact that I AM not that program, and I am not those thoughts. I had lost myself only to find my Self. I am simply the observer of those thoughts, and those thoughts are not true.
The brain generates 70,000 - 90, 000 thoughts a day. 95% of them are the same as the day before and they are all based on my infinitely tiny historical experience, beliefs, biases, and wounds. The Matrix is a prison with invisible walls until you see it! It is the bondage of self.
A spiritual awakening us nothing more than accepting this truth and fully surrendering to it. From the surrender comes wisdom, and wisdom is the ultimate source of personal power that arises from accepting one’s powerlessness.
“I am the wisest man alive, for I know one thing, and that is I know nothing: - Socrates
This is the doorway out of the Matrix. Only you can walk through it.
