Earlier in the month I was visiting one my “suggested” blogs and mentioned the movie “What the Bleep do we Know?” in one of my comments. The author of the site, Secret Simon, had already seen the movie however…and actually knew much more detail about it than I do. If you have seen the movie are are going to see the movie, I would definitely recommend reading his post. (The Secret of Life – What the Bleep do We know?)
I think the reason I mentioned the movie in the first place is also the same reason I recommend certain music and the occasional book. As you know, I very much enjoy exploring the perception of Unity…in this perception nobody really exists other than me (and my reality)…knowing this, I tend ignore names and histories (if all that exists is the moment, history does not apply anyway) and focus instead in my minds interpretation of what I am seeing (hearing/reading) at the time…why is this particular “thing” in my reality and this time?
If I can focus on just “the moment” then everything has to tie directly to that moment…the mind and reality are connected simultaneously, so all things are a reflection of my current “frame of mind” or perception. (the moment is indescribably small, to the point of not even existing in what we call “time”, so this frame of mind is changing very very quickly, reality changes with it…thus the fluidity of “change” that we experience)
An example of this is walking down the street while talking to yourself (internally or verbally does not matter)…often, if you are not distracting yourself, you find that you are “working things out”. Your mind is flowing through thoughts and you, the only observer of these thoughts, have to choose between acceptance or resistance…you can judge it, or accept it exists and continue to let it flow.
Suddenly, as if on cue, you will see an image, a word, possibly something that triggers a memory (it could be anywhere…advertising, a scrap of paper on the ground, a scrap of conversation you catch while passing) and you realize that this “thing” directly ties to the thoughts that were just flowing through your mind. (this only works when you’re not looking for it)
The history or origin of the sign is not important (who made it or why) but the “connection” is…your reality is trying to answer you (teach you/remind you that you already know).
I think that is why I enjoyed the movie…for the messages that “my mind” heard rather than the messages those speakers intended to give me. In Unity your reality is a personal thing, it is the one thing that is always with you…your best friend, your parent, and your worst enemy (depending on your perception). It speaks to us in many ways, but only if we look at it as “one thing”…otherwise it seems like an infinite amount of messages that have nothing to do with each other.
In my posting “How does does God speak?” I was trying to convey this exact message…I thank you for the opportunity to explore it “just a little bit more”. I guess that is why “Simon” (acting as “my reality”) wrote what we wrote when he wrote it…
Thanks for the lesson.
