The matrix movie trilogy became a phenomena at the time of its release. And I think it is because they touched on something very real about the nature of reality and perception. We live in a mind created reality that reflects our thoughts and beliefs and although it appears that we share the same reality with others, in truth we each have our own worlds based on how we perceive things to be.
We are living in a time where virtual reality games and applications are being developed very quickly. There are more and more ways to dive into random experiences that are designed to keep the mind active and as a result of that less connected to the physicality of our human bodies.
This is not necessarily a bad thing, but there is a very real danger because of the way that our minds are conditioned to perceive reality and make the perceptions real in the first place.
Without understanding how reality is created through the mind, we are easily lost in the sea of experiences. And this is even before we step into the reality of virtuality. What we focus on grows is an accurate statement. Adding one layer of confusion on top of what is already confused creates a multidimensional challenge.
Because of this there is even more of an urgency to become aware of the inner world, the Source of it all and how thoughts flow through the mind creating the very real like experiences we have .
The scientific research shows that we use mere 5-10% of our minds. That is staggeringly low percentage. There is so much reality not being experienced because our machinery of perception is so limited by stress and limiting beliefs. Now would it not be more worthwhile to expand the capacity of the mind to experience more of life, more that potential that we have on the inside and be more in touch with the actual Reality of full human experience.
Virtual realities keep moving the awareness further out into the field of mind created illusions. Before we are too deeply invested in that (and we already are well into it with the screen culture that is all around us) there is still good time to realise what is the only real game in town. Expanding consciousness beyond the limitations of fear will give us so much more than any artificial creation of entertainment for the mind.
Do we succumb to the machine world of the matrix or do we rise beyond that and cut our connection to that which is not real. Blue pill or the red pill? Choice is the name of the game here.
