I believe in following the white rabbit. Do you?
I’m not necessarily braver than you. I’m not necessarily any more mentally intact. I actually physically went somewhere else, but that isn’t necessarily necessary for everyone.
I woke up in my life and realised I had to do something in order not to die without having lived. Watching, and thinking about, The Matrix, and Alice in Wonderland- see blog, helped me break free and dismantle my old life. Placebo provided the soundtrack see blog explaining their impact. My Escape the matrix posts one two and three
I watched The Matrix with fresh eyes once I started ‘waking up,’ at the time I didn’t get it. It was the same with Blade Runner. Later I watched Black Mirror and Battlestar Gallactica. Westworld will do it too, but that’s too violent for me to watch.
I sometimes think about where we ‘really’ are, and the nature of reality. I sometimes think of being a brain in a tank, or going ‘back into the tank’ to regroup, especially when I was in the capsule in Tokyo!
I have on occasion believed I just arrived in this day or moment, and that all my memories are a feed. I also sometimes think, Wow, if I created this back story for myself, I really did a number on myself. It’s not glaringly dramatic, I sometimes think that much more extreme lives might have been experienced by this consciousness, but that this is the last one and so is fine tuned to have any experiences that were missed previously; the things that upset me are so complicated and subtle and detailed and just keep on hurting, and therefore keep me emeshed and prevent me waking up fully. In Blade Runner, they implanted memories, families, a back story, into the robots ‘to make them easier to control.’ I still feel a bit goosebumpy thinking about that
In Siem Reap we watched The Thirteenth Floor and afterwards went for a walk. Me feeling like I’d just arrived, Look at that, look at that. A purple building, a row of neon lights. I had to sit down on a bench, but even that was overstimulating, pictured above; shells and mosaics are kind of a thing for me. I decided to have a working hypothesis that it’s a matrix. That would mean: don’t worry about what people think, in cafes, walking past, don’t get distracted. Instead focus attention, choose, consciously choose, don’t go around saying hi to everyone, don’t waste energy, don’t feel self conscious, don’t be scared of mother, believe I can do anything that any similar person can do i.e. write book.
Since then I’ve been lower, and right now I’m higher, confidence and frequency and understanding wise.
There can be many signs that awareness is increasing. It can be seeing the beauty and feeling bliss. It can be seeing the beautiful things even when feeling very bad. Beyond that, it can be seeing things in real life that I’ve just seen on Netflix , or vice versa. Or hearing similar conversations. Or timing. Or meeting people you need to meet. Or the clock whenever I look at it saying 04:40 or similar: when I turned on my tablet to write this post and looked at the clock it said 07:07.
It’s about fearlessness.
Beyond all the films, books, the spiritual teachings, the New Age philosophy, it’s about waking up into your life. And realising, really realising, that you are a being, that you are here, in a life, in this world. That you are conscious, that you are alive, but that you will die and that that could happen anytime.
Once you realise this, as Neo said, what you do with that information is up to you…
