The Matrix is here

To liberate yourself, let go of the stories

Signs that should tell you to get out.

Are you depressed a lot? Are you heading towards a burn out? Or coming out of one? Are you on medication against some emotional unbalance? Are you fearing an invasion of whatever people? Are you always in a hurry and lack time to stop and think? These are all signals you aren’t living your real life. They all mean your caught up in a life and world, that’s not yours.

Finding “the courage to live a life true to yourself” should be the cornerstone of every education by the way. If you want to prepare children for life, this is it. The tools to do so, do include reading and writing, but also critical thinking and self awakening.

Why it matters to wake up.

Look up most important regrets of the dying. So when you aren’t living without regrets, or postponing taking care of them, chances are you are lost in suffering now. You suffer for a future that has to do with pictures in your head. And those pictures are the Matrix.

Neo taking the ‘Red Pill’ to wake up.

Waking up.

You breathe. You read. You may consider how it applies to you. You may play scenario’s of different options in your head. You may think of changing everything and people screaming at you when you do. Such scenario playing creates anxiety. But the real ‘unplugging from the story’ doesn’t need to be that big. Breathe. Read. Be here. Now. Repeat. This is what Zen is all about. And meditation is just the practice of practicing that. Breathe. Be here. Now.

Living in this world.

Become true to yourself. More accepting of inner sides. If you want to play, play. If you hate your job, stop it, or change how you are present in it. If you feel the need to make a difference, volunteer, help, start giving. By the way, giving and helping are the best depression fighters ever. It’s the worrying about yourself (story) that takes freedom away, rather than offer it. With worry there’s only two choices, accept or act.

  1. Go here to learn how to live in a complex world.
  2. Go here to unplug from media dominance and lies.
  3. Go here to face all the corporate scams damaging people and planet.
  4. Go here to start rethinking the basis of our current society. (popular)
  5. Go here to see how movies play your beliefs.
  6. Go here to start living a fulfilling meaningful life.
  7. Go here to start listen better to your inner compass.
  8. Go here to find the social courage to live it in the world.
  9. Go here if you want to change education to help future generations.
  1. Listen to the best Alan Watts video’s on youtube. Consider what’s wrong with our culture. Better stop worrying about the money. Dream who you really are. And find the real you.
  2. Start following Christopher Chase. His blogs are a mix of whole systems consciousness, tao&zen, scientific insights and our collective stories we live by (good and bad).
  3. If you’re young, try a different kind of education, like Knowmads, where they do train the courage to live a life true to yourself.
