I do think that there is some room to take control and manipulate the environment and your own body to go into the direction that you want to go
into... after you've become aware of things you were previously unaware of.
Becoming aware is key.
But that just might be part of the program, too.
A fat person, for example. A fat person who wants to lose weight can change their environment via diet, exercise, and people they surround themselves
with... to go into the direction that they want to go into.
Prior to that a fat person may wonder and complain about how they just keep gaining weight... until they are presented with the information that soda,
tea, milk, and etc. are all full of sugar that turns into fat unless your body uses that energy, so just maybe if they want to lose weight, they
should start with quitting all sugary drinks and only drink water. This could be the first step that they could focus on solely for three months at
least, instead of changing their entire diet all at once (because that might be overload). During this time they may be presented with other
information regarding carbs, and how our bodies work, and etc. Baby steps, folk. One inch at a time.
Now, if you are aware that previously conceived notions and experience may determine your decisions- you may be able to break loose from old
paradigms(old programs) and start something new. So there is something to awareness leading to breaking that connection- but this requires that you
step into foreign territory and you might "lose" yourself... by letting go of everything you thought you knew... and going against everything you
thought you knew. This is terrifying. In fact, someone once told me this is what selling your soul to the devil really means... to go against your
rational self, and do something outside of the program.
Because otherwise, you're just being led by already preconceived notions... which will determine if the fatty is going to "trust" the information that
they are given.
If they don't trust in the information that they have received then they will never change. They care more about immediate satisfactions due to the
way the brain lights up whenever they eat to comfort themselves.
But if they trust the information that they receive, which may mean they are able to break lose from old paradigms, they will change their behavior
and begin to manipulate their own environment (via diet and exercise, and also in who they surround themselves with because that's important too once
again) in order to go into the direction that they want to go into. This is an extremely lonely path... and requires a sh-t ton of taking
responsibility for your own actions and life, which involves boatloads of personal work... and all of that may just be extremely off-putting. It's
easier to sit around and complain about things than to actually break free and get to work on your own. And if you don't have a real reason to break,
then why should you change?
I think it's very rare for this breaking free from past selves and foundations to happen. Most people seem trapped to me. Even when we break free, a
part of us is still trapped, always. And I do understand that the breaking free... for me personally, was like a last effort kind of deal. Out of
desperation... and I didn't really choose to be in that place. It was just a "try everything before you give up" last straw kind of thing. Which is
also guided by survival instinct. So even that ability to break free and take personal responsibility? Even that is part of the program, lol.
I'm about halfway into the article. I stopped around the parts when they're talking about how people who don't believe in free will have poor work
ethics and etc. I think those people don't trust in their social realities... like they don't trust in the information they have been given. For a
reason. So it's not really about free will there to me, it's more about trusting in your environment and giving permission to information in order to
program yourself. Permission is a recurring theme in my life lately, and I was inspired to write.
I'll come back later after this lol it's a lot to take in.
