Will you take the Red Pill or the Blue Pill? Yes there are other pills too ..but these matter!! What am I talking about? If you remember the film The Matrix, you’ll know what I am talking about! In the early moments of their encounter, Morpheus was saying to Neo in The Matrix.. take one of them and forget the truth..and go back to the false dream-like reality.. Take the other, and you wake up to reality.. and can never go back! He takes the right pill.. (never mind the colour)..accepts reality.. his body is unplugged..and rejected..ejected.. from the Matrix of fantasies.. and his real life begins (in a mixture of suffocation, loss, pain, slime, and struggles!)
Birth is hard!!
Though we are all born, and have been living in the World, so many are stuck in many `womb-worlds’ – clogged and cluttered by needs, dependencies, having signed away their freedom in order to loyally support an ideal, a country, allegiance to a flag, a football team, a tribe, an organisation, a group, a relationships, and so many other things.. !
Within the womb, the unborn child is in a state of total safety and security, but also dependency. It has it’s every need taken care of.. warmth, food..and even a playmate! Yes, that placenta ..the twin ..the Soul-mate of the unborn.. ! (And don’t we then spend the rest of our lives searching for that lost soul-mate.. the `someone’ who is missing!!)
But the moment the baby is born.. through the pain and pressure of birth canal.. from dark..through tunnel to a world of sudden blinding light. the the safe womb-world is lost! Soul-mate is gone.. It has to go from being a quasi-reptilian, amphibian to an air-breathing being.. and wait to be fed. No tubes..no more.. No food and oxygen on tap.. through the umbilical cord. No ready-made warmth of the womb. ..and no mother’s heart-beat ..that steady drum that has been in your ear..and permeating trough your whole body non-stop for a whole 9 months…gone! (that’s why drum beats always affect us!!)
And the tunnel of pain and birth.. ah..you look for that too! The passage of rejection from womb-world.. You search for it.. and hope you find it at the end of your days… at death.. the tunnell..leading to light! Your memories got screwed up.. you equate the moment of birth into world of light.. through the mother’s vulva, as life after death..
Having been thrown out of Eden (womb), the inner child…is always looking for the pearly gates of vulva..to heaven…back to the sacred womb…!
To be born is hard.. It means you have to be 100% self-sufficient.. No twin. No food in tubes. You have to breath! You have to open your eyes now..and look at a world of Light and dark..not just the dark of the womb! You can not float anymore in that secure slosh of amniotic fluid! You have to stand up..and walk! Let your spin and muscles support.. !!
It also means you are free.. to make your choices.. to walk your path…choose the roads you can travel.. choose your destinations!
Take the Option now.. to be born!
No one likes a cry-baby (except mothering types). No one likes a winge-bag (except the gossip-mongers and rumour-millers).
Stop looking for death..your body is dying since the moment of your birth.. but new cells are always growing to replace the dead ones.. At some point, that balance will shift.. But long before that, Live!!
Well.. I still haven’t talked about Infinity, and the quantum realities that you can manipulate..
That’s for another blog post 🙂
Happy New You!
