Greetings ATS!

I wanted to share something I read on a web site just recently, because I really think the same way this guy is, and perhaps some of you readers will see the beauty of these words as well.



Like me, you are sitting inside, or somewhat near anyway, the body you chose to be in. We’re looking through and freely operating these amazing biological machines on a fabulous planet. And, “Wow, there appears to be a whole lot of other beings like me walking around! Where am I? What am I here for? And what am I supposed to do?”

I know, jumped off the deep end there, but that’s exactly our predicament. And what immediately sets in once we arrive? As young children we have this abandon as we experience this incredible place and all its feelings, sights and sounds. We screech with delight, sing made up songs, swing our arms around wildly, and run in place. We just express!

Then what happens? We start to conform to what we’re seeing, as well as what we’re being told. We become more regimented and are herded into classrooms and categories. We start feeling social pressures and are then handed this fundamental doctrine of insecurity where fear and scarcity become our main drivers. Your purpose in life now is to “fit in and get a job” so you won’t run out of money or food. Your internal, conscious response? “This is strange. Everything’s a problem here. Sure didn’t feel that way when I arrived.”


Please read the article below and let me know what you think.

What do you think about yourself? Do you believe you and other humans are here for no other purpose than to breed and make more humans? Or do you believe there is a spiritual purpose for you here? Please let me know, Im genuinely curious to see how people view themselves!

Being here on this planet at this time is pretty rough some days so its nice to get some inspiration. I truly believe some people are here to change the perception of other people for the better - not to comform to peer pressure and scientific dogma.

my take is: you, as a human, are born into this world and are used by spiritual beings, which guide you through your destiny.

But then you wake up, and realize you are your own "spiritual being" and your own destiny.

'Don't let them take your freedom'.

Don't let the belief in 'other' take your freedom.
Them is just a thought.
This is the one.

The more I read about the bible and religions, they seem to be code books for astrology, and ufology and ancient sciences, but also metaphors for internal struggles, and symbology for inner work.

The only battle there is is the conflict that occurs in the mind.
The mind is just made of symbols called words. The words fight with themselves.
Humans are mental.
The human condition (wording and belief in the words) is what the bible is about and all religions.

humans are mortal, the spiritual part is immortal. don't be confused with these two. for example, when you fall in love, it is not your decision, it is decided by spiritual beings shaping your fate.

Think sometimes people underestimate how difficult it is to unlearn the conditioning of both your parents and society.

They all make it seems so effortless but it's not. It takes immense self-awareness.

Some traits, habits and fears are just too deeply rooted to just be done away with over night.

But I guess just realizing your not a prisoner to your mind or society is a good start in the right direction.

Once there is this realization everything just seems to smooth out.
The viewing perspective shifts.

The truth is that there is nothing until you believe a thought and then the story will begin.
If you can stay with the nothing and know that no matter what stories arise that the thought is not 100% true.
The nothing is true - out of which all stories grow.

I believe you are right about that. And everybody who is creative gets their best stuff done in silence. This is because we can recieve the guidence. And that is why society is structured to keep us very busy all the time.

Inspiration comes not in words but has to be translated into form (symbols/words) for the mind to understand.
Inspiration is the spirit prior to the words that make us the conflicted individuals we believe we are.
Prior to conception you are. This is the un nameable - you/this is one, is all..

Creation is now.
This instant is created and destroyed so the next instant can appear, this appears to be what is happening.
You are the awareness of that changing.
You are the unchanging aspect of an ever changing scene.

You are an interesting one.


Do you believe in time being linear or has every possible event already happened and we are simply selecting where to go by our choices?

Time is a mind made thing. It is a projection of yourself into the future - a thing that does not exist in reality. Only the present is ever experienced.
Here and now is all you will know. Different words are asigned to confuse matters.

The belief in time goes hand in hand with the belief that you are a person that needs to be protected from time and life and death.
You are the being of the present moment. Timeless being.

It is happening. But what is it?
Some believe it happened along time ago and are trying to work out how it happened. Some think it will happen later and are waiting to find out.
But it is happening right here and right now and before the mind can grasp the happening - it is done.
'Who' are you to 'think' you can do anything to change the present happening?

The present happening is the beingness, it is aliveness, it is life itself.
You are that.

They must have ran out of clones on the day when you reincarnated.


I think its interesting to see how people think of themselves, because surely not everyone can believe they are just their body? Specially on ATS....

The mind is a system (the clone implant). This system can be watched by observing the mind and it's contradictions.
You can watch the system, you can observe the conditioned mind (the clone), you are the carrier of the mind so it is never out of reach.
You are the silent witness to the thoughts (the words, the symbols that the machine uses).

Step out of the matrix - see and hear all that is appearing (including thought and sensation) and know that you are the one. The one constant. The one prior to any appearance and the one remaining after the disappearance.

I am not incarnate and neither are you.
I am not flesh.
