The Matrix and Spirituality

Spiritually engaged people still find a contradiction between discovering the Matrix and their Spirituality.
Why is that so? Did they forget how they got it?
The focus point of any free spirituality has always been an awakening.
And I am not advocating that one awakening is better than another, its spiritual elitism and the world has seen enough of that.
Maybe you awoke from atheism to “happy-go-lucky-with- the-elves”, or if you did the ashram in India routine, or became Christian or Muslim.
It´s your belief system and the most private room one can have.
Let’s respect that. The world won’t.
We are, as every living thing on this planet on a journey.
I know it´s a cliché, but sometimes even clichés offers the truth, if they are fully understood.
There are enough in this world with salvation in the right hand and damnation in the other.
So do what pleases your soul.
Bring it together, it was separated and now there’s a hunger to: Connect again.
Maybe the old belief system was a kind of auto system, where the soul went on autopilot GPS-coordinates and maybe the term Soul, isn’t the right term, its more an Ego thing imposed by others.
The soul needs your heart in it. The Ego doesn’t.
Maybe we feel trapped, without the gift of: True discovery, having our heart in it or similar.
It´s our right to fight our way out because we did not choose it.
When that emotion finds us like an inner tidal wave we start to rebel.
Starting out on our spiritual quest.
That has consequences: we will get socially banned, people will start to punish us, bad talk us and the spiritual control mechanism will show its face.
No matter what we may turn to.
It seems to be a challenge looking for ways to connect to: The Divine; also within.
Interpretation of: “The Divine” comes in many forms.
There´s divinity in a bug’s life and in a cornfield and in a church and in nature, its everywhere. And we are all embodiments of: The Divine.
The problem is when somebody hijacks it and holds it for ransom.
Spiritual freedom is not granted, we will have to fight for it.
The journey often starts with a spark ignited from the feeling of emptiness or the feeling that something is missing, which drives us into the mystery of spirituality. Something has to ignite it.
The path is beautiful, full of wonders and offers a state of “ Being Self “, instead of: “Being Me”. It´s also turmoil. It´s like a flip of a coin, there´s two sides to it.
We often forget that the emotion of : “Being Self “ comes before the feeling of: “Unity“.
Often we seem to get stuck there with some confusion regarding: is spiritual development an Ego issue? Am I being selfish here?
To be frank: Yes, but “You” comes first. Find yourself first. It´s okay.
The inner tide hopefully draws us deeper than that.
For so many, this journey plays out on a pathway with very few allies.
They will come, when we reach the: “Get sober – but stay cosmic point”.
People of the same inner vibrational states attract each other and become the emotional strongholds of a heart and mind once in turmoil. Good.
Until the next tidal wave manifests itself. As it should.
This mechanism is very much on the table now in these so troubled times.
People are removing the shackles and the matrix of externally controlled belief systems and discovering their own path, what ever that may be! We found truth and we found out, that we were not alone. And hopefully that ”truth” will continue evolving, bringing us even closer to the source code of the mystery.
We awoke as we do many times.
When we awake, we see the world with new eyes. For every awakening we have another reality replacing the one we just left behind.
Lovely: A shift.
And a crucial point here is:
Should we leave the world alone, participate in the turning away, or take that journey too?
It´s a spiritual vortex point and this planet is not a waiting room.
So frankly I don’t like the belief system that says:
“I won’t get my spiritual hands in the muddy waters of the world as we know it” or:
” That’s bad for me, the world will judge me once again”.
Sorry, the world already does that! No matter what your belief.
“It´s negative, they attack the powers and pinpoints its contradictions and lies“.
Yes. So did Ghandi.
So did you. But that was when you wanted your spiritual freedom. Or another job, left a partner, found a new. Or what ever. Same mechanism.
Tell me: The difference.
The path is the same as the spiritual one, exactly the same. It becomes spiritual along the way, if it wasn’t from the start, since it will engage us more and more on a soul level as we find our way through life.
And we sure will find ourselves between a rock and a hard place but: That can be very transforming, if we know exactly that it is where we are.
And we know that! Because we feel it.
It is when we don´t know where we are; it really hurts.
We survived the first rounds. We will certainly survive the next of: Bringing together what is separated: A truly free spirituality radiating into a truly free society.
The only real obstacle here is the sniper in our brain, that tells us: We can’t do this.
Of course we can do this.
This world offers a lot of exotic travels.
The most exotic is very short: From the head to the heart.
Yet so difficult.
The heart would hold no snipers……..
