If one sees oneself as Neo or Morpheus, one might think one can take a flying leap off of a tall building with impunity; you’ll just bounce back up onto the roof. But if we remember: dying in the Matrix means one dies in “real life.” Those that bend the rules still recognize that there are rules to begin with, and higher structures meant to preserve the experience in the Matrix, which is required to go and live beyond it. Neo and Morpheus do not see others within the Matrix as being too “asleep” to be a part of their mission, for those still sleeping are just as real in each layer of existence as they are.
I think that’s one of the greatest crimes we can commit to our hearts: taking on the passions of others in excess.

This is especially the case for our relationships of all types, and even more so with those closest to us.
One of our greatest gifts as people is our ability to uniquely journey into the collective unconscious, should we choose to, and understand that the only authority on this planet we succumb to is our own. You are the center of your universe, just as each and every celestial body in space is the center, as that is their perspective.

Take your shoes off.
Relax your shoulders and give me your bag.
Come sit with us.
Have a drink with us.
You seem like you need a friend.

“Thank you” is never enough. Neither is “I’m sorry,” or “You’re amazing” or “I love you.” But I will tell you anyway, until I am shorn of my body and soul, and even then ever after until even the etheric is in a form you no longer recognize.
One piece of advice that will free your mind from worry and your spirit from being snuffed out is as follows: never ever take what other people do personally.
Is it the body? The mind? Maybe it’s some intangible thingy that was placed there by another equally vague idea. Maybe….it’s a little bit of all three? Yeah, for our narrative here, let’s go with that. TLDR version You are made of three bodies. Mental Body – The Mind – The Rational or Logical SelfContinue reading “The Selves.”
Hippie magick is bound by the rising smoke of an old man. The empathetic approach of a child seeing another’s pain. A mother whose concern is greater for others than herself. This is the way of a people bound not to any book, but to all stories. We gather around the fires lit by ourContinue reading “Hippie Magick”
