Well like a swift breeze, another year on earth has passed and my birthday came and went without pomp and circumstance.
The normalcy of everyday life, took its rightful place in precedence. An average day in the average life, of an average human.
I’ve almost completely wiped away any traces of celebration from my life, and that seems an awkward space to inhabit. The population is small here. Almost all walks of life celebrate SOMETHING ritualistically. Setting a space and time for certain revelry or observation.
I’ve now found myself only just ritualistically experiencing life. Like one long plateau. Everything sitting in a stasis, and the only interruptions come in the form of physical discomforts, and minor mental disruptions. The mountains are but ant hills and nothing is insurmountable. One listens to the changing season and adapts accordingly. Accepting that change is inevitable, and it’s how we decide to flow with it that matters most. Accepting the things that you can not change, knowing the difference.
All levels of consciousness, or unconsciousness, are just that… levels. Levels of understanding or comprehension; levels of compassion and humility, levels of love and hate.
Every individual is a matrix of levels. Those levels can shift and morph based on a situation, the environment and the people there. Take for instance favoritism. A teacher knows they will have 22 children in their class, and the teacher commits to care for each child equally, however rarely does anyone in any situation with 22 people, like or care for each one of them with total equality.
From day one of school, we are thrust into a situation with some strangers; some people we may know., some people who will remind us of other people, whom we may or may not like, some people who are nice, some people who aren’t nice, some people who are easy to talk to, and some people who are intimidating.
Each one of those people is a million different things on the inside, but on the first day of a new chapter in life, we tend to step into a position and stick with it, whether or not we realize it. Even a teacher is being placated on the first day. Each individual eye will assess the meaningfulness of the person in keep of knowledge and the peers next to them. To peer is to look at.
These beginnings of the program allow us to populate levels. You have bullies and teachers pets. You have jocks and nerds. These are the basic levels we populate based on our personal characteristics, our family histories, our interests and influences. This is where we first start to separate ourselves from one another. This is where we really start to fixate on how different each person is. This separation from one another is uncomfortable, and in response to that discomfort we gravitate toward others who are similar and experiencing a relatable discomfort.
We populate levels of separation with walls of discomfort, building ourselves cells within a block. Often times when we break out of our cells and move to new levels, the people we shared the block with, do not respond with kindness. Moving to different levels can be seen as threatening because it causes disruption and more discomfort. People enjoy familiarity and reliability, especially in discomfort.
Each person represents a complex code of these levels, cells and blocks. Each day they are introduced to choices which will allow them to experience a new code, but it is by choice alone that one can willingly do that. The system supports all things, and resistance is purely up to the player.
What no one tells you, early in the game, is that fact: The system supports ALL things, and resistance is purely up to the player.
That is a pinnacle truth, and at this point in time, a level of comprehension (not understanding, as when we KNOW we no longer stand UNDER or are stood UPON ) looking to quickly be populated. Those seeking to populate that level, MUST comprehend that we can no longer compartmentalize that which is already quite compartmentalized without seeing the totality of the compartmentalization. The whole of function, the interconnectedness.
A body is a bunch of cells, which is a bunch of organs and bones and blood and ligament; but a body is also a person which is made up of thoughts, feelings and influences of spirit. And that human body is part of the body of humanity. And that individual body goes to a school and is in a specific compartment called a class, which is divided by age and aptitude, and that school is part of a greater district. And that district is organized and led by individuals, who have specific jobs, and they are part of the Education system, which is a network that connects a broad area. And you can see the totality of all of that, but each person in that network is populating other levels of life both within and without that system.
Our world is attempting to show us that we need to stop fixating of the division of the whole. We have been inundated with our differences from the day we come into the world. There is always some one around the corner to fixate on how we appear so different, ignoring all of the amazing ways we are exactly like one another.
Perhaps we are afraid that by honoring the sameness, we will lose our uniqueness. But pointing out difference in a negative way, isn’t unique; in fact it stifles the ability to truly be oneself in the best and most supported way. This is so hard for people that they manufacture new cells to exist within, showing us the extremes people will go to out of their discomfort of themselves, and the world; that level of comprehension needs to be met before any of this makes any sense.
We need to reevaluate why we continue to put the whole of humanities despair on the shoulders of any ONE man, or Cell, or Block. None of it exists without the whole. It is OUR responsibility to ourselves and each other to come to that uncomfortable realization, so that we can willing gravitate to new levels of function within the program.
Each individual will continue to traverse levels and blocks until they realize it for themselves and act in accordance to that knowing on the highest ability they are able to express.
The greatest cataclysms a person will ever face, will be themselves on the inside, seeing their own reflection in the world around them. When you see yourself, will you break the mirror? Will you wipe the dust off your reflection? Will you promptly wash your face, or put on a mask?
The out come of the game, depends on you and only you.
