The life of a robot

Are automation, robotics and AI the future and will humanity merge with machines? This is a view that the transhumanists hold firmly and believe in. Is it coming or are we already in it? Are we programmed to do a specific thing over and over again? Or do we actually consciously choose what we focus on?

I am sure each us would want to think that we as humans are far from being robots. Let’s just dive into this idea a little deeper and see what layers are there to be seen.

Perhaps we can agree that the mind is programmable. Education, news media, social conditioning, entertainment, arts and many other facets of our society pattern and mould our brains and the mind into accepting certain programs and avoiding others. This is what happens from the very first moments of entering into this physical life as a baby.

The conditioning washes through us for the first seven years when the brain is mostly at the theta and alfa state and it very easily absorbs information. And most of this programming goes into unconscious and it will colour our life for the rest of our lives unless new programming is consciously replacing it.

So much of our lives happen at the unconscious level. Our reactions and perceptions of life are as pre-formatted even before they filter into our conscious awareness.

The advertising industry knows very well how to program the mind and use the unconscious as the weak point. You walk into a store and buy things thinking that you are choosing to buy certain things when in reality you may just be following a program that has been set in your brain in the last two weeks as you watched tv and that particular add kept driving the message into you. And the the store knows where to place the items that you will most likely pick up the ones that they want to move out and sell the most.

Many of our choices come from preprogrammed behaviours and reactions. In that sense we do not differ very much from a robot that only does what the program says. This is how google can predict what you do in the next week. The algorithms of your choices and behaviour are recorded and from that a pattern emerges, there is a very high probability that you will follow the routine 95% of the time.

Routine creates comfort and a sense of knowing what is happening and also a sense of control over the environment. The cost is that we become predictable and machine like in our behaviour. The result is that there are not very many conscious dynamic choices that come from using intuition, awareness and being in the present moment.

But do not despair. There is an upside to this condition. We can choose to program our mind in a way that it is directed into expansion of conscious awareness of the more subtle aspect of our selves. We can use the mind as a tool to step out of the prison of repetition and robotic life.

If we understand the mechanics of the mind and the body, it is easy to see how this new program can be uploaded. We need high quality content, pure thoughts, that we can fill our minds with. Ishayas call these seed thought Ascension Attitudes. They are based on Praise, Gratitude, Love and Compassion. They drive awareness to the source of all thoughts and we begin the process of deleting the limited old programming while we simultaneously also install the new software that is based on living in the present moment with conscious awareness.

This is where the robotic life turns into life of a conscious being. It is not difficult to do, but it does require choice and commitment. To be or not to be? That is a choice and that is what is one difference between humans and machines.

Victim consciousness

Perhaps many don’t really think and identify themselves as being a victim in their lives, but let’s make one thing very clear. We live in a world of victim consciousness because collectively that is what humanity believes to be real. So yes, there are individual differences, but we still face this creation of victim consciousness together.

What does it mean to live from victim consciousness? It is a perspective that thinks that the little self is the center of focus, but feelings, experiences and thoughts are influenced and can be directed by others. Things happen to the victim randomly and one can only shy away or attack in order to preserve the self from the outside threat. Life is coming at victim and he/she is at its mercy.

The truth is that I am the center of my own universe, just like you are yours, but this is very different than what the victim perceives. All of what  our senses experience, all feelings and all thoughts have their source within the individual. All of us create our own universe of experience and we are each responsible for what is in it. There is nothing on the outside that is doing anything to me or that could possible have power over the truth of what I am.

The ego can be hurt and feel like it has been abandoned or crushed, but the consciousness that we truly are is far beyond being affected by the outside circumstance or other people.

If we identify ourselves as being solely physical being with a limited lifespan, we are open to being wounded, destroyed, betrayed and killed. It is a fight for survival. On the other hand, if we experience ourselves as pure spirit, there is no possibility ever to be betrayed, harmed or killed in any way.

Many people do understand this intellectually and see the reality of consciousness and how the true self is pure consciousness. However, understanding does not free the individual from the victim consciousness. It is a good beginning to the right direction, a very necessary step, but knowledge becomes wisdom when you actually use it and make it manifest.

This current global situation creates a wonderful opportunity to see victim consciousness in full action. There is the threat of pandemic disease and media drums the number of deaths as the whip to create fear around it. Even had I pulled myself out of living in victim consciousness for the most part, what happens when I am pushed into a collective thought stream that is 100% coloured by the sense of being a victim to a threat from the outside? Suddenly travelling is limited or I can’t go to work. This moment shows me very clearly just how much there is investment inside of me to being a victim. What is my individual choice in that moment of time. What do I choose to make real?

This moment is here for us to fully grasp that the inner is more real than what we see outside. What we choose to put our attention on matters hugely. Our personal beliefs are what colour our lives. Our inner landscape is what becomes the the landscape outside.

The more drastic and dramatic the outside becomes the more important it is that we have a stable inner life that is founded deeper than the surface experiences and the surface thinking level f the mind. Pure consciousness rests within each of us and it is unstruck and untouched by any drama of the human realm. That is where we find the Peace that passes all understanding. No understanding is needed to know the Truth of what we are.

Ascension literally means to rise beyond. We are rising beyond this level of victim consciousness. We are doing this collectively and individually. The Ishayas have seen this time coming and the Teaching of Ascension has been given to us for this very purpose. We have a chance to bring Reality into this dream of victim consciousness…

…with Praise, Gratitude and Love.

Global Fearus Pandemia

“I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.”

— Frank Herbert, Dune

What has spread around the world at an incredible speed and efficiency is fear. That in itself has more dire consequences than any physical pathogen. It is not the virus that has put the world into a standstill. This particular virus simply does not have the power to do it. But fear does. And it has.

What we focus on grows. 

One thing that fear pushes the individual into is a flight or fight mode. Awareness becomes narrow and the body prepares to extreme hardship in order to survive. It is a mind-killer. Our attention is heavily on the outside appearances as we are trying to make sense of it all and see where the danger is coming. And what all of this does is that it weakens us physically and in our minds and in our spirit.

In other words this is when a human is the easiest to control and manipulate. This serves a purpose for certain types of outcomes, but that is not where I want to go with this.

As much as it may seem we are struggling with a crisis on the outside in our physical world, in truth we are at a great turning point on the inside and the true challenge here is this.

Are we choosing for love or fear?

This choice is not happening on the surface of the mind. This has nothing to do with surface notions of love or romance or being afraid of snakes for example. At the core of our being it is a matter of life and death, truth and illusion. Do we recognise our selves as the Spirit, the Ascendant, Life itself or do we choose to be just bodies that are subject to death and destruction with very limited life spans.

What are we really?

When fear takes over there is no space to be aware of the truth. It is a cloud that covers the sun. But there is an upside to this experience of fear. It can be turned to good use.

All that energy that is held back and locked into the experience of fear and particularly the fear of death can be used to propel the expansion into consciousness if we are willing to face it. When we are willing to look fear into the eyes and see it for what it is, we will always find it has no reality. The only reality there is, is love. But if we are not willing to move through the dark places where love seems to disappear, we are not going to make a deep and meaningful connection to what love really is.

This fear that is dancing around the world is a blessing in disguise. It is a reminder, an opportunity, an opening to realise a deeper truth about our own selves than we have yet been able to do in this life. It presents a vast amount of energy that we can collectively and individually claim and turn back into Reality. There is nothing but love. That is the message that the Ishayas repeat in all the Thunder books that MSI wrote. There is nothing but love. And we are That.
