Patterns, Behaviours, Habits ‘Hiding in Plain Sight’

I am always struck by the notion that we may just all be social robots whose actions are dictated by habit, unconscious programming, social conformity and survivalist triggers. Of course free will has to come into play at same level but the reason I highlight these notions is because most people live their lives with no realisation that the majority of their lives are lived unconsciously with their ‘egos are running the show’ without any of their conscious awareness of this truth. You see that time your loved one flips out, loses it or acts completely out of emotion and they are not themselves, you are correct. It’s their ego-defences that are firing out on a purely emotional fight or flight level and they are not in fact themselves. They are not their higher selves, their loving truthful integral selves. They are living out of a primed survivalist trigger that has been set off.

It’s amazing how many people will go through their lives with no real realisation of the hypnotic unconscious state that they’ve lived their lives. It’s like the Matrix says: ‘You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it’. Awareness is key. Once you are aware of the truth you can start to make conscious choices when you might have otherwise have been unconscious or in the emotional mist of the ego. Namaste.
