One of the best movies I have ever watched was and is The Matrix. It is in every way a symbolism of life as we know it, so cleverly captured.
When Neo accepts the fact he is The One, he then achieves incredible feats. Slows down time, plucks bullets out of the air, karate kicks the men in black aka viruses/glitches in the system to some dark, coding hell. It is all of us, aint it? When we remove fear and negativity inbred in us, we too can see clearly, bravely and can do what was once considered – in our heads – impossible. A simple case of mind over matter.
But my best part is the overall setting of the world as we know it. Where we all think we are independant beings doing whatever we believe we have a choice and freedom to do so. But we are actually comatose beings with wires plugged into our brains, being fed a virtual world to act out what we are already programmed to do.
But deep down, some of us, know. That all is not what it seems. That this is a doctored world, where from birth we are brainwashed into believing a perception of the world we are fed to believe.
The wires feeding us are media channels that create hype that sells their agenda, archaic divisive religions and traditions that teach us to be afraid, hate and be suspicious of one another, medical exhortations of big pharma and doctors who take the Hippocrates oath to heal but instead conspire to make you sick so you are always at their mercy, govts that ban things that can actually heal but allow those that kill, milk and meat lobbyists telling you cows and pigs snd chickens dance merrily hand in hand to donate their body parts for yr consumption… etc.
What if we are all just cash cows to The Matrix ? What if we never had a chance against the insidious Matrix that weaves its dark web… but there are some who see it. Perhaps these awakened ones fight the Matrix and The Men In Black who control the mind hallucination through small rebel units?
But those who see it cannot seem to convince the rest who prefer the hallucinative state they are in. Because it is easier to live life as you know it and not know history, or fathom the ugliness behind their seemingly perfect lives and what they have been taught and fed into their brainwaves as they lie numbed and comatose ..
What if the Resistance is right here, fighting the good fight, but Agent Smith is just too strong ?
Happy New Year to a Brave New World.
May we all see with clarity, and live with the courage to see what is hard to see.
May we all be …The One.
