The planet is bursting at the seams with people. Technology is making the world smaller and smaller. The geography of human thought paints the current world map—a map of ruthlessly populated urban metropolises and deserted natural oases. There is large-scale migration from poorer countries to richer ones and from the country to the cities. The matrix of the big cities feeds on the survival instinct of those blindly submitting their lives to the machine of the urban metropolis.
In most cases, it is a one-way entry, a pass for life. In a crowded city of strangers is where we feel as aliens at home. Money buys us pleasure, so we can forget pain.
Some of us turn to religion for help, but find ourselves even more zombified. Organized religion is seen by many as the white death of spirituality. Atheists have become truer in their pursuit of God than religious people.
The matrix of control and material ease we have created is so successful that in the midst of trying to learn basic survival skills for our daily “less complicated activities,” we are left with no time to learn about our own selves. We swim in an alphabet soup of confusion without a life vest. WHO AM I? The Matrix has labeled this most existential question as entirely out of fashion. Perhaps it is now time to GOOGLE THE SELF!
“At the center of your being you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want.” Lao Tzu
The MIND has become the master of the planet. But what happened to the heart? Or are we too busy to ask? Ask your heart HOW to find balance in constant instability. Can you hear it answer?
“Mind is consciousness which has put on limitations. You are originally unlimited and perfect. Later you take on limitations and become the mind.” Ramana Maharshi
What is true knowledge and what knowledge do we really need to have? We need to explore the knowledge of the heart and the wisdom of the self. This cannot be found on the Internet. We need to close our eyes and see the answers. They are always contained in the questions. We should only learn to ask the questions of the heart.
My heart tells me that the less I try to know about the dynamics of society, the conventions and odds of the Matrix, the happier I will be and the longer I will be able to preserve and renew myself. My heart does not think, it feels, it listens, and it shares. My heart is Love. EXISTENCE IS LOVE. What does your heart tell you?
