Know that all things are as they could be. Now ask yourself; what else could be? Life is inclusive – Only your mind is exclusive
I watched “Edge of Tomorrow” with Tom Cruise and Emily Blunt tonight.
An average action/Sci-Fi movie, but the reason I found it interesting was the concept of
“Live, Die, and Repeat”.
This is actually how our reality and life works. You can choose a Buddhist view, or do as me; believe in infinite parallel realities, experiencing one viewpoint and timeline at the time.
In the movie Tom’s character had the ability to remember and build upon previous life experience to figure things out.
We (by our own divine design) chose to start with a blank slate when we got here. Frustrating at times, but this way probably contributes to more growth, expansion and fun in the end.
If you slow down one day, like you could every day, and become aware of what’s happening around you and inside you,
you’ll notice plenty small clues and hints to guide you along the way.
Call it intuition, aha-moments, glimpses of peace, feelings of connection and love, seeing the back-end of the Matrix, and understanding that there really are no ‘others’ here – it’s all you.
There is an excellent scene in the film
“The Game” by David Fincher.
It’s the highlight moment where Van Orton (Michael Douglas) stumbles into a canteen full of all of the people he’s been interacting with in the two hour running time that preceded it.
That’s the point where Van Orton realizes that all those interactions were a scripted part of the game he was part of. They were all just extras playing roles to give him the experience he searched for.
The equivalent scene in The Matrix would be when Neo sees the code for the first time and understands that he can access reality on the level of source code.
