It shouldn’t be a surprise that The Matrix and its follow-up, Matrix Reloaded, have become cult movie classics and have surpassed the financial expectations of filmmakers and film critics alike. The simple fact is that people here on this planet are waking up from their own long programmed sleep.
The movies raise many questions about our group reality and individual reality; the biggest being,
“Who is really in control and what, if anything, can we do about it?”
Indigenous groups of the past understood this and within the program of their time learned all the nuances to keep themselves from being suckered into the black hole of lost and forgotten souls; that is, sheep being led to the slaughterhouse.
They learned to survive using their own senses rather than by the noise of outside institutions constantly telling them how to live, breathe, think, pray, and behave, to conform to rigid and unnatural social mores and laws.
Who really are the controllers?
Is it one overlord, is it many, is it the government, or is it the entire institutionalized system?
The Matrix is confounding to most because not only does it present a scenario that most people haven’t ever considered, let alone understand, but one that presents a picture that is not pretty and creates fear for those who might even want to consider its message.
Exactly what is the Matrix?
We all dream and some are fortunate enough to remember our dreams. We are programmed by institutions such as psychiatry to view our dreams as preoccupations, fears, neuroses and sometimes psychoses. But the Maya and many indigenous cultures understood far better that our dreams were the key to reality rather than the other way around.
Our dreams show us a side of life that we all live when our ego is no longer involved in the process of maintaining the physical. They show us what is really going on from an objective point of perspective and can also be prophetic, helping us to realize our own power and those weaknesses that must be overcome to live unrestrained. Most of all, they show us how we remain bound in a controlled world, and sometimes they even show us how to break through the boundaries imposed on us by others, and mostly by ourselves.
Traditional psychiatrists would have us think that these dreams manifest to show us just the opposite; how we must find a means to control our impulses and fit into the system, rather than break out of it.
How does this tie in with the Matrix?
If you take your current reality and your dreams, and transpose them so that your dreams are your reality and your reality the dream or maybe I should say, “the living nightmare”, you start to get the gist of the program.
If you can buy this, then you’re starting to understand the Matrix!
Then you begin to wonder just who is controlling the entire waking scenario, keeping you in a constant state of amnesia so that you don’t even realize you’re a walking, talking slave, feeding a system that cares little about your wellbeing. This faceless system feeds you crap about family values to contain you, and then brainwashes you into believing that there is value in fighting and dying and working for such causes as economic freedom, liberty, etc.
In fact, these actions do not liberate us but just tie us further into a system that benefits only a few and keeps us from determining our own values!
And where are the people who are feeding you this garbage?
Do you see them on the frontlines, or do they instead take your money and your time, and then run, glorify everything that will help them in their pursuit of power at your expense?
Now you’re beginning to understand the Matrix…
The Matrix is in fact a machine, a political machine, an economic machine, a social machine, a religious machine, a family machine, and any machine that feeds off the people without them realizing it.
The Matrix raises serious issues about choice, destiny, control, and the nature of God and faith.
Are we then all programmed to do exactly what we do and to believe exactly what we believe?
Or are there a few brave souls out there who see through the Matrix, ask questions, understanding that there is an element of choice, destiny, control and faith existing within the collective unconscious and even themselves?
Remember the old hippie adage, “challenge authority?”
How did we ever draw that conclusion?
Was it a result of programming, or by some of us choosing to expand our minds and tapping into the collective unconscious?
Was the drug culture a program to wake us up?
Do you understand why the church and government is so fearful of those who woke up and ask questions?
Is it any wonder that alcohol, a depressant is legal and marijuana, a mind expanding stimulant is illegal?
If we are one big universal computer program, can we break the code?
If so, what’s in it for us?
If we break the code, do we become terrorists as our governments want us to believe we are, or heroes to those of us who saw through the program of the few and mighty and fought it to obtain their freedom of choice?
But once broken, what are our choices then and what is our destiny?
Is there a God who created us as part of his imagination so that we think we’re living but instead we’re his program that he can turn on and off as he chooses?
Are there those in his favor who carry out his program for his and their own self interests?
Are his interests solely in his favor or are they humanitarian?
Do our lawmakers and church leaders really make laws to protect us or protect their own interests?
Are they part of the programmed hierarchy of foot soldiers and agents who get special treatment for doing so?
We are all God’s creation, whatever God is.
The God program has many embedded programs that play themselves out; some are useful and some become obsolete. We are not perfect and will never be so despite the God program that occasionally tries to wipe his own creations off the face of the planet either in biblical proportions or by use of his agents. Once here, we gradually mutate to accommodate our new environment.
New programs may be instituted to control mutants, and programs can even be aborted if they no longer have the desired effect. But some mutants may become anomalies. They adapt but sometimes not according to plan. They run amuck and threaten the status quo. Some programs may contain their actions but ultimately lose control due to unforeseen expectations; that is, the lack of foresight in programming.
These anomalies somehow manage to tap into the spiritual guidance source code; sort of like the hippies of the 60s. They get inspiration from the angel program, the ghost program, the UFO program, or the oracle program.
As humans, with spiritual guidance, we learn we must move beyond playing by other people’s rules if we want to spiritually survive. While we physically mutate by evolutionary design to adapt to our physical environments, we also have the capacity to change our destiny and make our own choices by taking back control of our thoughts, beliefs, and creativity.
Believing in anyone or anything other than ourselves keeps us a prisoner in the Matrix. Some people succumb to the spiritual program, and as with most religions, give up their free will believing that a higher force they do not understand has more power than them. However, understanding that we each have a role in creating our own destiny if we follow own intuition and heart, and by refusing to play by other people’s or higher power’s rules, is the key to breaking through matrix prison.
There can never be a perfect world if that world is conceived only by one and everyone else becomes a part of that person’s limited and controlled design. We are all “the one” when it comes to controlling our own destiny. And when we realize we are all “the one” and we each have the same purpose of fulfilling our individual destinies, we all become one with each other, raising a new consciousness level that breaks the old programming.
The currently running limited-edition God program will most likely abort in the near future. More sheep are due to wake up upon realizing something is very out-of-sync, which will result in cracking the cosmic code.
Then a brand new program will take over within the God program.
Could that program be the one where we are expected to progress to a new level of understanding; the understanding that the one ultimately in control is just “you”, and that the choices we make must be of our own free will, and that those choices are what ultimately create our destiny?
Do we have enough faith in ourselves to unravel and understand our coded purpose?
Don’t bother to ask the “authorities” for the answers because authorities won’t tell you.
They have too much to loose and everything to gain by keeping us trapped in a six-sided, limited-view box. You must find the answers within yourself to free yourself.
You are your own oracle and your oracle’s sole purpose is to function not as a slave master, but as a guide, moving you to new dimensions in awareness.
