Right after we were born and the umbilical cord was cut, we were specified as a male or a female being, we we’re given a name and of course if our parents happened to follow a religion we were presented with our very first gift, religion. We grow up learning things as they come, enjoy the comfort, learn to lie, get into a school, make friends and you know your story.
A matrix of instincts are formed in this process based on our intuition, the source of which are governed by two major factors:
1. Our upbringing; influenced by our beloved family and friends.
2. Our judgement of acceptance and forbearance.
A third undeniable factor is our exposure to media which acts as a catalyst to keep us amalgamated in the matrix.
Knowing this, ask yourself, what am I?
Will this answer affix you to the matrix or will you break yourself free from it and see what lies beyond it?
You must be unique! But the other 7 billion people are also unique in their own special way. This means that your thoughts about yourself have no life value when we look at the bigger picture (unless you possess the power of reading and controlling everyone’s mind like Charles Xavier from the X-Men).
Dissecting furthermore into the physical properties, we see that we have a body made of matter. Matter which cannot be created or destroyed and only transforms from one form to another.
You are not 25 or 75 years old; you are 14 billion years old. You have always existed and will continue to do so. You, the people around you, the walls in your room and this phone alike, have always existed in some form, until time came to reunite you.
Ain’t that cute!
We become a separate entity the moment we start distinguishing ourselves for what we are. That is the birth of our ego. If your intelligence is a knife ready to dissect opinions, your ego is the hand that holds the knife. The way you dissect is entirely upon you. It can be graceful or it can be artless.
A subtle synchronicity underlines all guidelines. The universe is aware of you just as much as you are aware of it. You are not a part of this universe. You are the universe becoming aware of itself.
