Welcome to the new year. A new year is a perfect time to remember who we are and to create consistency with our real self. Over the past thousands of years, the main thing for us humans was to survive. The quest for food. This survival instinct has programmed our DNA into – fight, flight, freeze, façade, greed, wars, hoarding, bigger, more, more, more etc.
Collective and individually we then create an identity based on survival and accept and believe that to be who we are. This identity then becomes lacked in and fixed – subconscious. In fact, the identity becomes a programmed pattern and we literally behave and operate like a computer.
This identity does not serve anything the highest or best in us – it only serves the survival of the façade we have created. You will not find true love, peace, happiness, and compassion within that programmed survival identity.
What to do about it?
History has shown us that 99% of us will do nothing about it and will continue to live as the “sheeples” in the matrix movie. However, there is always the 1% of us with a calling within us – that is calling out to us to wake up and see that the survival game only leads to “hell”. Of the 1% who hears the call only a smaller fraction will answer it. For that fraction I say:
The start of a new year is a perfect time to answer the call. It takes awareness, intention, discipline, focus, courage, and determination.
The first thing is to inhabit tremendous courage within yourself. You will need it. You must go against the whole world of fear and survival. But even more importantly, you must go against what you have called “yourself” up until now. Many fail at this stage, and they may even repeat the word of ones who have crossed, but they never cross themselves and settle for allure of the ego.
Like a ladder one must climb to freedom and each rung on the ladder there is an ego deception to distract you. It is an inner journey. No external entity can do it for you. You are on your own. You have free will. It is up to you.
We are caught like a fish in a net and there is only one way out – to become “no one” “nobody” “no identity” “no attachment” if we can accomplish that we will find a hole in the net and escape.
If you can find someone on this journey it may help to be in their presence.
Love and light
