Sitting quietly alone, against a tree in nature, I was able to look in from the outside. The chaos seemed to be at every level, and I thought "Beam me out of here Scotty".


Sometimes when awareness kicks into high gear the signs of a fear based/driven society are overwhelming, and relentlessly bombarding us from every angle. As I scrolled through Netflix for a bit of escape, I again realized that the majority of movies/TV series were fear based, especially the ones that people seem to gravitate the most to, so I turned it off and jumped on the internet. Guess what I found next? lol

The advent of the internet coupled with social media has become a bitter-sweet addiction for many people, it provides some awareness for a small group that have critical thinking skills, however for the majority it has become an avenue to react quickly to MSM posted fear porn.

I can completely understand why people become drugs addicts and alcoholics, however those avenues seem to amplify the emotions after the buzz wears off and make things progressively worse.

We have fear reassurance on every level and it doesn’t stop with our supposed relaxing time, internet time or down time.

Let’s look at some facets of our way of life.

Health insurance – If someone gets sick then supposedly they are covered medically cough, cough

Auto insurance – People are covered it they get in an accident

Home insurance – Contents and dwellings are covered in case of loss

Life insurance – Loved ones are covered if the bread winners kick the bucket early.

Job insurance – Covered for a period of time in case of a job loss

Vacation insurance – Money back if things change, or something happens during travels

Bank insurance – In case the of bank failures, or fraud

Product insurance/warranty – In case your big and small toys break early

Welfare – supposedly a temporary means to get people back on their feet.

Social Security - insurance for retirement and disabilities

Pension's - Another financial insurance

401k's - Need I go on?


Religion’s insurance - the fear based dogmas, if you’re good by following rules you get to be in good group for eternity, if you’re bad you’re damned for eternity.

I personally do not watch TV or Cable anymore, not have I for many years because of the rhetoric that is spewed on a 24/7 based, and when I’m over people’s houses that have it on, it only reaffirms why I stay away from it. Can we say mind-numbing BS?

I’ve come to a conclusion that simplicity, and nature are a must to be able to gain some perspective, while living in this cluster-bomb of a world.

Lastly, it appears that no matter how much time we trade for money, and how many comforts and assurances we can afford ourselves we are many times at a net loss for a happy state of being. Could this possibly be because of our foundation and current dogmas for living?

So is there an escape from this reality, or can we somehow rewrite a healthier and happier way of living? Maybe ATS members have an answer 😊

"A little more awareness is a certain kind of Hell." --Chris Rock

You took the red pill, sounds like you're doing fine. Would you rather be plugged back into your Matrix bathtub? You can't go back.

Once you've seen the world outside Plato's Cave, your mission becomes going back in to drag others (kicking and screaming) up to daylight.

Like you just did.

Yes, theoretically you can obtain a Happier existence, if you really are ready for that.

But I don't think you're ready yet. I'm not ready yet either. You see, we base our happiness largely on material circumstances.

And at the end of the day, after learning all of this ancient wisdom about letting go and being happy for no reason at all, I find it unfair to myself.

If I just let go I might risk stopping to try so hard to improve my material circumstances.

Ever been abandoned by everyone you loved, betrayed by those you trusted your life with, lied about on national TV, then ended up literally starving and sleeping on the concrete when it's 13 degrees F with just a few thin blankets and some hand warmers? I have. It's bad but coulda been way worse.

To me, money and possessions aren't where I base my happiness. I see the material world of $$$ as hollow and fake in general.

What I want is to fix my family, achieve the exoneration of justice and redemption, and show everyone who I really am. I wanna be who I really am.

It feels so far away.
I don't have a chip on my shoulder, I'm carrying a mountain range on my back.

All I gotta do is convince Atlas to lift it off me, but man am I carrying it. Because I can and will for as long as I gotta. It coulda been worse, I'm lucky it isn't the whole world.

So how am I gonna rewrite the Matrix to make it better for me while I'm here? Spiritual Kung Fu, of course, lol.

With Trinity, Morpheus, the Oracle, Niobe, and Ghost helping me out I might just break this cycle and put a stop to Agent Smith and discover why the Admin is doing all of this, but it ain't gonna be easy.

The floor needs mopping and there is no shortage of faces to do it with. I'm just trying to find the right balance so I can play while I work.

In short, I only know 1 way to rewrite this thing - and that's to hack n slash, bash n thrash my way to a better day.

It's always a fight. Just getting up is a fight. But I do it because I might discover my inner might and will this thing right with the force of my light.

I dunno how to give up, I wish I could every day but I just can't accept losing in such a big way. Losing myself to despair and desolation. I can't accept it.

I only accept victory over all this BS. No occult philosophy, no ancient wisdom, no theology or practicality changes this.

I'm tired of losing. And I'm not going to just blow it off and ignore it by putting my head in the sand by convincing myself that my perception is the problem. That's surrendering and unacceptable.

My perception is just fine, it's my position in the Matrix that is the problem. And I'm gonna stand up to Smith and fight em with everything I got. I'm gonna change this thing. I'll be damned if I don't.

If I give up now there will never be a Me again. I'll find my end and it will never come back. This isn't the result of me clinging to my ego in a desperation, this is me about to kick some ass!

In the end everyone can say and think what they want, they can justify everything with whatever BS ideas they want, and they can waste away doing whatever petty BS they want.

But me? I'll do this my way thanks. If I'm wrong oh well, what's it matter to them? Everyone's wrong about a lot of stuff.

I'm going to Live even if it's the last thing I do. I'm just so tired of not being the real Me. I don't even know if "Happiness" even matters that much, but I do know 1 thing - laying the smack down sure does matter a hell of a lot.

When that last bell rings I'm gonna be the one left standing. That's what matters to me.

To each his own, but I'm gonna rewrite this with my mind, feet and fists.

I found an interesting article that's similar to what you speak of.

How Shamans Dream the World into Being



Whether you realize it or not, we are all dreaming the world into being. What we’re engaging in is not the sleeping dream we’re familiar with, but the waking dream we craft with our eyes open. When we’re unaware that we all share the power to co-create reality with the help of the universe itself, that power slips away from us and our dream turns into a nightmare.

We begin to feel we’re the victims of an unknown and frightening creation that we’re unable to influence or change. Events seem to control us and trap us.

Awareness huh...sounds like it going to frequently used.

I'd like to think of awareness as a manual transmission car, where as unaware or being asleep automatic one. Manual you feel it and listen to it, it's vibrations and how it feels, talks to you when using the clutch an stick, and even tells you her darkest secrets.

Automatic is just that, where you'd need a check light to tell you what's going on, and the driver is obilivous to things. Not that it a bad thing, just that one less tedious then the other, and their nose is to high in the air.

Now whose aware, or not aware as to what we have to be aware of, I'll never be able to judge.

I guess awareness is a subjective thing, however we have some inner force that tells us many times "Things shouldn't be this way in the world.". We seem to have an inner paradigm, but do really know how to properly manifest it, hence our states of unhappiness, and chaos.

Depending how far down the rabbit hole you want to go. I learned that on this planet we have all kinds of people, and some can do some incredible things. But that usually requires a special training and a lifetime of dedication...

My bet is yes. See, they say, and I believe it, that there are physical pathways through the brain, which our instincts travel upon. There is what is written, what is done. And there is what is meant.

The trick is, getting the one to replace the other. Because as we know, good intentions are plentiful, and talk is cheap. Were literally talking about different metaphysical structures: the one.which governs and the one which learns. I believe this is what is meant by living with awareness, as opposed to living in ego.

It all boils down to this: theres what you do, and theres what you think about what you do. Think long enough, hard enough... Literally, even if you cant incorporate any of the intended structure, if you just make it instinctive, by constant repetition, then it will begin to override the old patterns.

This same mechanism works for revision on the societal scale too, if society acts collectively to do so.

I couldn't be able to say, but is there really such a thing a thing as Objective reality? This is where many doctrines or artistic( I'm being nice here) renditions have tried. Wether it actually applies to reality, is often left to hindsight. We fear the future all the time, because we can never know, and objective reality can change very easily.

Money an objective in today society due to its usefulness and the strength of the illusion it provides, but when or where does the objective become the subjective? What happens next when one attains that objective, does it become secondary, or non existent at all?
