Early in our lives we dream of being free, independent finding our place in the world. Little do we know that if we are not careful our lives have already been set up to live in servitude. Its pretty simple how its done and it starts when we are young with the bombardment of advertisements. We are told that the things we obtain materially will determine our worth and unfortunately we find ourselves following that belief without question. Not questioning things in life will definitely lead us to a place of hard lessons.
Last week when I was in New Mexico I was going to a drive thru when I noticed the master card logo in Spanish Maestro Carta and in an instant I found myself shocked for it became apparent to me that it did not mean that we were the master of the card but the card was the master of us then I noticed the visa card and suddenly realized it meant vise. I was shocked because the card companies laugh at how stupid we had become that we couldn’t see that they were the true wolves in sheep s’ clothing. When we borrow anything from anyone we surrender a part of ourselves until we pay our debt back. We in essences become a slave to that debt until it is paid back, for many that could be a life time of servitude and for what! Things that as soon as they are brought have no real value, considering what the card companies do which is tack on a hefty twenty plus percent, the objects brought are never worth the cost at the end. The curious thing is that even though people know this they are still inclined comment themselves to being a slave to the plastic that is used to determine the value of who they are based on a number. Well the difficult thing is coming to terms that we are not a number but spirit/ life which in reality is priceless and should never be given away for a few trinkets however once the spell has been cast it is hard to convinced the mesmerized that they are being taken for a ride. When the pen is in their hands they are unable to resist signing the dotted line. Once any of us has commented ourselves to a debt it is hard to think of anything else and our precious energy of possibility is absorbed by the companies that cant live without us. Yet has been able to convince us that we can not live without them.
When one is in debt it is hard to think of anything else but that debt if one gets behind the companies have no problem having some eager twenty something who hasn’t figured things out yet to call and try to school one who is late on how to be a more responsible card holder. Poor creatures, they don’t even know what they are doing or rather how they may find themselves on the other side of that phone later in life talking to someone who has just about as much compassion or apathetic they do at that very moment. What a unsavory job to have for it may give them a paycheck but it also create a lot of negative energy as well. The way things are set up in our society is to wave the carrot in front of us with the pressure that without things we are nothing, then it is easy for us to surrender into becoming slaves with a sense of normalcy and complacency to ones own plight. What we are offered is rarely what we end up with and for most the promise of happiness within it is always a mirage that is forever chased with little to no yield.
However it doesn’t have to be that way. Think about it we are life as it is us, we are not separate of it but as one. That means the same energy that flows through the universe flows through us. We have abilities that most will never discover in themselves simply because their debt wont allow them to see what possibilities lie within, in fact it is all set up that way. Our own incredible power is used against us we bury ourselves into position to be used for the benefit of others. Most of us are surrounded by things that aren’t even in use yet for some reason within an impulsive moment of blind consumerism we find items of no use occupying space that could have other useful means. Then there is the burden of responsibility due to ownership which makes us unable to move at times out of fear of losing stuff we really don’t need. All while not realizing the real treasure was being ignored by oneself while being used by those who understand its value and convince us to surrender it for things that ultimately have no value except for what the mind has placed upon it. I think as a consciousness we have the ability to achieve anything mind wants but before we can realize that we are already under siege from a world that places us in the haves and have nots filling our heads with wants and desire of things we never knew we wanted or needed. Our reality is filled with commercials at very waking of consciousness in this world. The programming is started early and very difficult to break but not impossible. Its easy to see that the mind is a programmable organic computer that can become anything even a willing participation in the slavery of the me, myself and I with its wants and needs. We are not even given an opportunity to explore the possibilities before we have already been given limitations so that we can perform at our function for what serves those who control most of the resources of the world. For many going this path is lonely unfulfilled yet amazingly enough very crowded mainly because of fear, most will never try to escape. Those who try are often overwhelmed by the magnitude of the situation and a sense of what could one person do. Well, a lot when you think about it.
See I was once a slave to the cards which was a downright frightening experience particularly when strangers would call to speak in a manner that not even my family or friends would consider. Yet Mary do right from bloom cage screw me good Idaho had no problem scolding me for late payments on a bill of a thousand dollars while asshole corporate suit and tie that loves money so much that they have no consciousness of the lives they destroy, gets away with stealing money from company and customer with as little as a slap on the wrist. The most disturbing part is that we take it, fist and all!
I say stand against these leeches, yea they don’t force us to sign the dotted line technically but psychologically they keep the thumb screws on with constant bombardment of our self worth based on what materials we have in our possession.
We should not surrender our life force over for so little when we actually have access to the universe and instead of thinking about ones own needs understand and be willing to participate in the changing our world that we have somehow forgotten we are a part of. We are not as helpless as we think. A lot of time its just pure laziness that is filled with a mountain of excuses but no attempts to try to understand. We have to carry some understanding of the powers that moves through us otherwise it will be hard to use them in the most optimal way in which they will be beneficial. We want the world to change then the journey begins with one understanding their place within it all and the possibilities that lay with the change of ones own perception. The problems at hand can not be solved if one is not aware of them. So in order to free the slave mind we must first know the mechanics of how we got to this point.
This world that we are in that has most of us dazed and confused started somewhere. The answers are all around us, so are the warning signs, it is up to each one of us to do the foot work to see the world as it really is and how instead of us thriving in it we are limited by our own perceptions. Its natural to want a better life but lets be real with all the promises and formulas that would guarantee success why are we as a country so freaking broke disillusioned cemented together with fear and unreasonable expectation . Why has the American dream made so many homeless standing in longer food lines, literally imprisoned within our minds that filled with wants and needs that didn’t even exist until created by someone looking to profit? Where is the fairness in all of this? Our brains are an organic computer we must learn to become the programmer of it least someone else will without hesitation. It’s a matter of being in control of ones own destiny or letting someone else. Happy journey!
