Getting all metaphorical

A few days ago, on my son's birthday we went to the local cinema to see a new film, 'Revolver'.  I thought it was brilliant.

I know some would say its just a weird gangster film but I thought it was more than that.  Maybe I'm seeing something that's not there but I think the main character played out (and this the whole point of the story) the struggle we all have between our everyday ego 'thinking' mind (the matrix of fears, doubts and suffering we project onto the world) and our true nature (the source of all love, happiness and power within us) which the 'ego' does its best to hide from our awareness.

So how come we don't see all this?

Because you can never see the Matrix from within it.  As it says in the very last line of 'Revolver' -
"the greatest con that he ever pulled was making you believe that he is you"

How then to see this for ourselves?
Well, maybe we just need to take_it_easy and learn_to_be_still     (click to listen)

But strange that I was not told
That the brain can hold
In a tiny ivory cell
God's heaven and hell.

  • ..this blog stems from a recognition that our true nature is far more creative, loving and unlimited than we could possibly imagine... and it transforms everything... a practical, generic solution to all our problems.

    These are just my lesson notes as I try to  be true to that recognition... and  learn to fly.  So it's quite possible that everything here may be wrong.
