You are the battlefield

There’s no looking for crowd validation. There’s no waiting for outside redemption. There’s no collective bargaining to rely on.

The awakening is you. Only you.
That’s what all this is about. The battle for your spirit and soul. There is nothing more important in this life for you, or me, than waking up. Once that’s straightened out the rest will follow.
How we perceive the world around us creates and reinforces the world around us. Once we become conscious and aware that this existing matrix we’re witnessing is an arbitrary creation manipulated by power-crazed puppeteers, that is when the change happens.
And the Universe will tell you what to do from there.
That’s what to respond to. Nothing else. That’s your job. That’s my job. Don’t shirk it, enjoy your earthly suit, but rediscover who you truly are.
We judge so much by how we think it will measure up to the world around us rather than just express what we’re thinking and feeling openly. Whether with close friends and family, our peer group, or the message we pick up in public, we’re being programmed. Programmed to not respond to obvious needs, but to strange, shallow self-serving impulses.
Just like everyone else.
But who’s looking when you’re sleep walking.
But there’s a price to pay.
Everything. Waking up costs everything. So what? What are you saving up for? Aren’t you paying that price anyway even if you’re not waking up? Life always costs everything. You’ll leave here eventually, like me, and the cost will be your life. How did you spend it? Consciously, or trying to conform, and using that to hide behind to justify living as a comfortable, selfish, lazy brain donor to the system.
That’s the battlefield. You. Me. It goes no further.
The only thing is, for conscious, spiritual reality there is no predator. That’s the secret. We are eternal consciousness having an experience.
We, individually, have to change first. We have to commit to consciousness, get free of entanglements and live a conscious life. The rest has little meaning until we get out of the matrix.
It’s you. It’s me. Your personal world and experience is the only one you’ll ever know. Just let consciousness be your guide. But act on it.
Dont let them take your freedom…

To be is to be perceived

If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?
my answer is ‘No’, it is the perception that brings matter and events into existence. You say it is there and it is there, you say it is not there and that is true again. There is no ‘truth’ to be proved as such. If you have more people sharing a perception that becomes a fact.

Today I spent some time reading this related article on Wikipedia, and it made quite a lot of sense to me.

Here is an interpretation from the article “The scientific answer, perhaps originally intended, is that no, the tree does not make a “sound”. It makes sound waves, that without an instrument such as an ear, do not convert to actual sound. The common sense answer, as the question has mostly come to rely on, is that yes, it obviously makes a sound since we know that a tree falling makes noise regardless of whether anyone is around or not. The metaphysical, and perhaps first roughly proposed, answer is that no, the tree does not make a sound if no one is there to witness it falling. And indeed the act of making a sound isn’t even a quandary, all that matters is that the tree in fact ceases to exist if no one is there to witness it.”

Some beautiful flowers that showed up at my balcony few days back, do they exist or is it just my eyes…
