Inspiration From An Insidious Source
Insidious: mid 16th century from Latin insidiosus ‘cunning’, from insidiae ‘an ambush or trick’, from insidere ‘to lie in wait for’.
Deliberate memes create our norm.
Meme: an element of a culture or system of behaviour passed from one individual to another by imitation or other non-genetic means.
We meditate – so that ignorance may dawn as wisdom.
Wisdom is seeing clearly, without distortions.
Waking up, we realise the true nature of our own mind,
rather than that of someone else.
Who is that ‘someone else’? Those who create events in the world to exploit the gullible. This is exactly why we are in the mess we’re in. Our lives have been dictated, and we unconsciously conform – or, more to the point, conform by reacting. This fantasy world, created for us, is our norm.
Ideas are introduced into a population through social engineering, to divide us from one another. They are plausible and attractive fancies placed into our consciousness, and then subtly changed to other plausible and attractive fancies … and so we are divided. We take sides, creating chaos, confusion and suffering. Don’t believe me; just look and see: do we really think that things just happen for no reason?
The power-hungry collude with the delivery system – the media – to created chaos, confusion and suffering so that we conform to maintain their illusion of power.
The life we lead is a charade that’s been played out over centuries, so that we forget what it is really all about, and end up accepting something that is far removed from our reality. Our reality is that we are wisdom beings – homo sapiens – with an ultimate reality of homo divinum – divine beings.
If we believe in anything, then we fall prey to exploitation by thosewho make full use of and derive benefit from a resource. That resource is us. Our ignorance of our true nature of pure knowing consciousness stops us from being free. If we do not awaken, then we will be ambushed by likes and dislikes. Just before these likes and dislikes manifest, there is the delight of pure awareness, and it is in that moment that we are free. Free from anxiety.
Once we are free from being controlled by likes and dislikes, it is then that we are able to chose what is of true benefit, what is habitual, and what is harmful. As the saying goes, “If you keep doing the same thing and expect a different answer, that is an indication of insanity.”
Knowing we have a real choice is the secret to real enlightenment.
An empty cushion is not the answer.
An empty mind is.
