Did you know the only place that it's ok to put an exclamation point and question mark together is on the "Inter-Web?" I stopped calling it the "inter - net whenI realized that a net is: a new business strategy from Microsoft aimed at a convergence of personal computing with the Web; and a web is: an intricate network suggesting something that was formed by weaving or interweaving. That's another story!
I was thinking this morning, right after meditation, something I read in a child psychology book. I was seven at the time, my mom was studying early childhood development. In the book, it stated that everything a child could ever learn, they learned in the first 5 years of life. Can you believe that? The majority of people that walk this place you all call earth do. Well, I should say the Westerners do. How closed minded that philosophy is? How have you learned to develop skills you never knew you had, at age 5, when you don't even know you have them? How would you ever know what it's like to lose someone so close to you that you thought was your life, at age 5? How would you know the difference between Graham's Number and Graham Cracker ingredients, at 5 years old?
I only ask these questions and bring up this subject because as we move through this existence and become aware of the all, we realize that the majority of the things we've learned in school don't really help us become what we are in life! You don't learn social skills in kindergarten, you learn coping mechanisms, you don't learn cultural diversity in middle school (you learn what it means to study social stereotypes) it's not until you become an adult and understand that something as simple as a watch given to certain cultures means that you're expecting them or someone they love to die soon, ie: cultural diversity.
I believe, yes, I have that right; lol, that we live in a day and age where we need to put away the old "industrialized thinking' platforms. It's a new world out there and it's in your own backyard and we're so busy existing that we don't even know that life around us is changing that in this instance you've developed and can tap into abilities you never knew wer possible and it's also happening to the people we come in contact with. Who ever thought you could change the cebral cortex directory (or thought process) of another individual with your own thoughts just by typing your thoughts in the inter-web.
I know I'm all over the place with this but I'm trying to make a point. Just picture this:
You wake up in the morning. You have a specific number in your head: 614, you read your favorite blog and search a couple of forums and before you know it, your 1 number has turned $1 into $10 and now you're trying to fgure out a way to play them all. What happened to the 614? Why did you decide to play so many? You begin to hear the echo "Are you outta your mind?" You think, no but your intellect says maybe.....
We're still learning unfolding and growing but there is one thing I know for sure. Each one of us still has much to learn, much to grow on and above all gifts that we need to overstand. Break free from your Matrix. You're still young enough to learn, the brain never stops accepting information (yes even in death: there are studies). Open up and focus. Don't be upset with yourself that you chose not to listen to your first thoughts; embrace the fact that you've learned from the experience and know what not to do the next time: But above all things, let go and allow your creative skills and intuitions to break free from the that simple little INCEPTION: Everything you learned before you were 5 is all you'll ever learn:
A quote from the MATRIX: Have you ever had a dream that was so real?
The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you'reinside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers,lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying tosave. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system and that makes them our enemy. 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.
P.S. Thank you Joker17 for the inspiration. You are to be commended!
