“The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you’re inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. 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.”
I have seen how badly they will fight to protect it, I have suffered, like many of you, how loved ones are willing to break all ties with you defending the same system that enslaves them. Like Neo said, people are not ready to be unplugged. But the question is, are we?
Taking the red pill doesn’t automatically unplug you, it just allows you to ‘see’ with greater clarity, but it’s a process that takes time. Time to assimilate, time to digest and time to shed.
Shed beliefs, shed habits, shed thoughts, shed people and ultimately shed the person you used to be.
It begins questioning some things and it ends questioning absolutely everything. You will believe nothing and everything at the same time, and the more you know, the more you will realise you know nothing.
You will begin to slowly detach yourself from all of it, like an actor that no longers wishes to play it’s role in a production. You will want to walk away from it, to disconnect, to unplug.
The matrix is a circus, an illusionary, extraodinary, all encompassing circus that has bewitched us from birth. The red pill makes you see it as the circus that it is, and so you are suddenly left on your own; shocked, bewildered, somewhat lost, isolated and having to create your new real reality by yourself.
A reality based on truth.
But what is true? What is there left when everything you thought was true is not? When deception is all you’ve known?
When you start asking yourself these questions, is when you are ready to unplug. It’s when you find yourself building your reality from scratch by holding on to the only things you know in your soul to be true.
And what are those?
Everything that is not the matrix; it’s the soil under your feet, the tree that gives you shade, the sun that warms your skin, the child that holds your hand, the dog that licks your face, the scent of the flowers in the yard, the birds that greet you in the morning, the song you wrote with your guitar, your mum’s smile, the waves that come and go, your baby’s laughter, a shared meal, a friend’s hug, a slow dance, a summer’s breeze, you and me…
If you are looking for truth, step out of the matrix, ignore the show, the lights, the whistles, the constant interference, the maddening noise, the fear, the insanity, the back and forth, the up and down, the ‘they’ and ‘us’, the black and white, the game, the trap, the nonsense, the lies, the illusion… and instead embrace what we were given, what we’ve always had, what will always be, what we all share; the frequency of God’s creation: LOVE.
Notes to Readers:
She’s right. There are layers of conditioning to unplug from; it takes a while, and can be an uncomfortable process, as you are probably going to lose family and friends along the way. Yet, you have to decide whether or not you are willing to compromise and ignore your gut feelings that something is wrong, face it or suppress it.
In the end, it is a choice each of us faces, red pill or blue pill.
