We live in a time of informational super abundance. But the throttle is in the “ego”, your perspective, yourself, getting in the way. You think the structure of information you have consumed from birth is reality. You only hold shape as a person in relation to it. But that is not true. You exist as a conscious entity outside of programming. You can unlearn your perspective. You can realize someone who has been given the exact opposite information to you, is a good, kind, happy, whole person who is valid in their perspective. Once you get it, then all of a sudden, it floods in. You realize, everyone is valid in their own perspective. That means there are billions of perspectives on reality all operating at once. No one perspective is right, no other is wrong, they just all are. In that space of acceptance, outside of perspective, is reality. Let the wall of knowledge blast your perspective right out your head.
Open yourself up to the infinite stream of information. Let it flow over you, overwhelm you, drown you, until you are no more. Let yourself hear every dialectic so you can elevate above it. Once you stop trying to see the world from your perspective, you edge closer to reality. The internet provides access to pretty much every bit of information and knowledge we have as a species, that hasn’t been lost to time or agenda. It’s all there. And no one is stopping anyone from finding out whatever they want. You can learn, see, hear or understand anything. You can get a degree and change your life. You can become enlightened. You can become an expert in any field. You can find someone who feels like you but also someone who thinks the total opposite. You can use this wealth of information to step into the void. Once you start seeing a wealth of perspectives and information, new or different to you, as valid, possible, real, you start to loosen your attachment to your perspective. If you are able to be surrounded by all the dialectics of life, you can step into the eye of the storm. And, there is nothing there. You just are. You can see everything as it is. Nothing is true or false, right or wrong. It’s all just there, the infinity of information for you to explore. Nothing is right or wrong, dangerous, or taboo. It is just another idea or perspective that exists.
It is from this place where change, growth and progress come. An honest look at reality, unclouded by perspective and judgement, is how you assess what is and isn’t working. We cannot evolve as a species until more people in power ascend above the dialectic to analyze what information can be used for the betterment of each human’s day to day life. A person above bias, judgement, trauma, lenses, perspective, influence, control, lobbying or pressure, unaffected by public opinion, is needed in any leadership role. It is rather immature to not be looking to evolve as a species past the monkey brain, the reactive, the controlled state. The thinking that emotions and feelings can’t be controlled and thus reality must be controlled to change them, is regressive. If people want to be truly free they must learn to master their animal brain and let go of one dimensional perspectives of life. The more the everyday person does this for themselves the sooner it will become apparent the need for this change in perspective for society, culture and politics as a whole. There will be more people able to hold leaders to these standards, and it will become increasingly apparent, that the narrative led mind and person is a thing of the past. It’s down to every single individual to free themselves of narratives imposed on them by their informational ecosphere. And the baptism by fire is right there in the palm of your hand. The way to step into the void is available to you 24/7. It’s a fast track to awakening to reality, and to feeling humble and grateful to be a human being getting to witness reality at this time. It is not a state to be scoffed upon. It is not a state of woo. It is not what I have heard it described as by anyone before. It just is. Its comfort, contentment, ease, understanding you will never understand, its playful and fun, its light. Nothing is so much better than distraction. Being calm and still mentally is not something that should be limited to yogis, and gurus. It’s every human’s birth right. It’s our REAL state of being. It is fundamentally human. Still the mind and you are free to explore reality in your body. To explore what is, not what you think it is. The mundane can be as beautiful as the sublime. There is no such thing as boredom in the void. You are there. I’d rather we as a species move towards enjoying existence because we are alive, rather than carry on as we are, thinking we are living because we are propping up our sick bodies and dysfunctional minds with narratives and leaning too heavily into perspective and individualism.
Now is the time. Grab this opportunity to jump down the rabbit hole. It’s really not that scary. The way things are going the rabbit hole will soon be lined with neon corporate signs and a foam pit to land in. So before it’s too late, learn how to un-indoctrinate yourself. Everyone is wrong, everyone is right, everything can be good and it can also be bad. How can something hurt you that helps someone else? What if history was wrong? What if up was down? What if you drank the potion? What if you explored ideas, spaces and opinions that terrify you, and they turn out to change your world? What if you realized you can choose what lens or perspective to view anything with? What if you could have that level of control over yourself? What would the world be like if more people had the ability to see things from multiple perspectives and not hold any of those ideas tightly or defend them as “the right” way? How fast might things improve for your experience of the world and for society as a whole, if each person took responsibility for their perspective, addressed it as an entity to be understood and instead of being slave to it, was able to dance with it, and move it out the way when needed? What are you afraid of? Its only you there in the black mirror. It’s only your reactions that limit your access to information. Do you want to be scared of your shadow for the rest of your life, or do you want to be able to be truly free?
