Our lives are influenced by people and conditions and the people and conditions in our lives are influenced by our scripts and stories. So ultimately we have the power to rearrange or to remove these characters by rewriting the script.
From time to time you may have experienced a sudden shock or feeling as if segments of time are missing or awakening to a sudden realization of the disappearance of past memories. This experience can be quite jarring at first. What we do not realize is that we have traveled to a reality that may have some extreme differences to the reality we may have left behind.
As we face challenges in our private realities, on our private stage, we are caught in the performance, the drama and intrigue of the experience. The actor now believes that he or she is the character, the role being played in the game . This is the dilemma that we all face. The characters we play are created from archetypes written into the script of this collective version of reality—we simply add uniqueness to these characters based on the stories we select to play out as our experience.
Being spiritual is in some respects an overrated concept steeped in all sorts of conjured up rules and expectations. Instead it becomes a state of being that we try to achieve yet every act is in honor of the spiritual experience. It is how we experience being human.
Each day I am reminded of the closely guarded rules and conditions that we have established in our lives. We are on guard watching for any thought or idea that may come along and possibly alter that paradigm. Most often we go running to the safety of our own mental prison.
This is a question that is well worth examining from many different angles. Who is in charge of the humans, do humans need handlers/controllers? Humans are hard wired to be controlled; hard wired for slavery. Because of this the vast majority readily accept the need for control by government, corporations, religion/spiritual constructs and education.
There are those moments that many of us have faced when everything seems to freeze and nothing seems to be working. This can be such a powerless feeling especially when you have experienced the flow of movement. What then. You run around in your head hoping to find some resolve, a glimpse of a solution. This is where we can easily become desperate.
The distractions are relentless, simply one after another; the game is hypnotic and engaging. Since the beginning of 2011 cycle our minds have been busied with an assortment of distractions. Tsunamis, pirate kidnappings, the royal wedding, Osama bin laden, Lindsay Lohan, Libya, radiation poison, Charlie Sheen, cancer, death, illness. There is not much space in between to process thoughts which plunge below the surface of reality. This is much like going on a guided tour and the guide’s job is to keep the excitement moving as he wants to be sure that he delivers your money’s worth.
