I have under stood this for some time now, I Am choosing to share what I know. There are two sides to ‘Higher Powers’, 1) Invisible Source of Energy 2) People of assumptive importance
Lets start with the first one ‘Invisible Source of Energy’. We all know there are things out there that We can and can not see as energy, take electricity for instance, We all know it exists, but can not physically see it! This goes for a lot of things. But I wish not elaborate on those, for there are too many things to write about here.
Second, ‘People of assumptive importance’. This is simple really. What do some consider “important”? Some one with lots of money? Some one with lots of education? Some one who has many followers?… I agree to the last statement, but only in the context of how it ‘debilitates’ You as a free thinker. What I mean is why do they supposedly have power? Because You “Believe they do!”. Once You stop focusing on what does not empower You, then You realize the importance of who You are truly! I do not mean that in a egotistical context, but more a inward acknowledgment of pure Self. This can be implemented into all aspects of Your existence.
I stopped reading the news papers, watching tv, looking at fear mongering websites… You get the picture. Some will say “Matt, but what You are doing is embracing ignorance!”. I dis-agree with that whole heartedly! I know the problems of the World. I agree, I do not know specifically all the problems of the World, and I agree that one does not require to, in order to under standÂ¬â€ that if We stopped making every problem a personal issue, then the collective issues made from the personal issue will seize to exist entirely! And that is what it is all about, taking full responsibility for all that goes on in Your experience. Guilt is based on this fully. To plead “not-guilty” is to plead “not-responsible”. Guilt is not a bad word, as is a lot of words We assume have negative connotations wrapped around them.
Complexity is a man-made thing, I believe every thing is simple. We tend to label this and label that, classify this and classify that, but when You get down to it all, every thing simply just is as it is. No fancy explanations. How do You think nature thrives as it does, I can tell You with certaintyÂ¬â€ it is simple and does not have a ego to get in the way of what it does best. Nature is connected to a infinite source, as is every thing else, As Human Beings We have dis-connected Our Selves from nature, and source. It is unfortunate, because I believe nature knows best, look at how no matter what has happened over the many millions of years on this planet, it has still managed to survive with out technology, knowledge, ego, nuclear bombs… I trust nature, it will always know best. Just observe it, and You will see what I mean.
Assuming is one thing I have learned recently, that it does not serve well in any regards. It is always best to ask questions to change that assumption into a fact, and that can be some what dangerous as well for facts are perceived differently from person to person. So use that advice with caution. Assuming is a difficult habit to break, but like all habits if You persist at changing them for the better, it will soon become common place just like the habit You replaced. ‘They’ say it takes “30 days to change a habit”, but I believe with more advanced methods, You can achieve faster results.
So to conclude, if You focus Your energy on those You assume are powerful, then You are correct in thinking they are powerful! But only to You. To assume they are powerful to others, is false in so many ways as explained above. Focus on what serves You well, remembering not to harm any one and any thing else in the process!
I thought about this today, the word “Freedom” I mean. I remember reading and/or hearing that “Freedom is either a Right or Privilege!”. It dawned on Me that it is neither a “Right” nor a “Privilege” and it is both!. This statement applies to many others like “Operating a automobile is a Right or a Privilege!” and “Raising Children is a…” You get the picture.
Why I believe it is neither and both is simply that “Freedom” just IS! This seems to be some thing We do in all aspects of Our lives, set “Conditions”. Take for instance a multiple choice question, You have the question and then a select few choice of answers. The key word in that statement is “Select”, some times they throw in the “None of the above” and I agree with that one most. But My point being You do not have to choose any of the answers or You can choose ALL of them. Who says You are required to choose just one answer.
This all stems back to Your “Freedom of Choice”(I have written a post prior to this one on this website, check it out if You have not done so). It amazes Me how We set conditions on most of the things We do(My Self included). I have been releasing those conditions I set on My Self each and every day. And it is easy to do! All You have to remember is “Any thing is possible, as long as You do not harm any One else in any way!”, I know what You are thinking “But Matt, that is a condition too!”. And You are correct, it is a good one though. More simply “Be Free!”, but remember this is My opinion:)
I know a lot of You have either read, heard, or seen on TV that there is a “Global Recession” going on. What I Am going to tell You next either will shock You or cause You to exit this page. All recessions ever experienced are personal! Let Me clarify that, every recession ever endured has been isolated only to You personally! Think about that for a minute or more, and then continue reading this post…
Now lets elaborate on that last statement I previously told You. A recession personal to You, “how is that possible?” You say. Well it is quite simple really, You believe what others are telling You to be true! Do You think extremely wealthy people do what others tell them to do? The answer is “No”! If it were the opposite, then they would be like the average person. Trust Me the wealthy make more money during so called “Global Recessions” than any other time, reason being is while every One is being scared on where they will get their next dollar, they(the wealthy) are planning and buying their next venture to sell to You!
Sure there are up and downs on how much wealth is going around, but the key word in that statement is “going around”. Money is still flowing, just not to the Ones believing there is a recession. Take Me for instance, I refuse to read the papers, watch the news(TV for that matter) and do My bsst to not partake in gossip. So to Me there is absolutely what ever I desire to believe in My life. The phrase I love to use for all this is “Care but do not Care”, which means I Care, but do not Care about the things that are trivial. I Am a very responsible Human Being, and have great pride in “not” adding to the Collective Social Mess Humans have and still create moment to moment. I know the World is improving, and Am seeing drastic changes for the better. I have complete faith Humans will come out on top, and never look back!
I will be writing a post in the future about how Our “Beliefs are Perception Filters”, and how You can go about changing Your debilitating beliefs easily!
You all may be wondering what inspired Me start this website, and I Am asking My Self that same question? I guess it all starts from whence I was quite young. I can remember growing up wondering why are things “the way they are!”, I had and still have this inner voice saying “question every thing!”.
I had a awesome up bringing! Living in a simple community named Daly Grove(in Millwoods, Edmonton, Alberta CANADA). My Family treated Us very well, and I can say that with integrity. My Parents provided My Brother, Sister and I with every thing We could ever desire, You may say We were a average suburban Family, what You would call a typical “middle class Family”, but to Me it was a lot, especially when I look upon it now. My Parents did the best they knew at the time, and I Love them for it, and continue to Love them 🙂
When I think about it now, I realize I Am a better Human Being as a result of My Family! No thing was dis-functional about Us, and I believe that because I have no stories to tell like molestations, beatings,Â¬â€ impoverish conditions and so forth(things that society will tell You that are not normal). But what is normal? Normal I believe in My definition is what majority of the masses are doing at that specific point in time. So if You really think about that definition, it means any thing goes if the majority are dong it! That I believe is pretty dis-functional! And this is where I get My inspiration from, My purpose so to speak. I Am for once in My life doing what I have always thought and felt, and that is “What I desire!”, not doing what the masses are doing.
I can remember getting My first job, it was exciting at first and then after a brief while I realized “this sucks!!!”. Then I moved on to what You would call a better job, and shortly there after I thought to My Self again “this SUCKS too!!!”. And so the cycle began, I always did what others thought and said I should do. They said “You have to get a job”, “does not matter if You like it”, “if it pays good You will learn to enjoy it!”…After a while I got My Self into what You call debt, most people go through this stage and most continuee to repeat it over and over again. I lost hope for a bit, thinking to My Self “What is this all for, what does it matter!” Eventually I whipped into shape so to speak, got another “good paying job I did not enjoy” paid off My debt and thought I felt good about My Self, but I did not. Some thing was missing, “Purpose”. I began looking into various so called “Conspiracy Theories” and started to get quite angry inside, wondering “?what the hell is this Worlds problem!”. I soon came to realize it was not what was out there that was the problem, it was in Me that was the problem. So instead of always searching and finding all the problems, I began to just look with in for all the solutions. I love this quote “Look with in, and You will find with out!” that is very profound! It means when You go with in Your Self and change how You feel about every thing, the out side World(Your experience) changes to what You desire!
I admit I have read quite a large stack of books(still continue to read), and watch various videos on all topics as well. But that was and still is just stepping stones to aid Me and ingrain My “purpose” on the stage of Life. Which brings Me to My original question “why Am I doing this website?”. “There are millions of other sites just like Yours, Matt!”, “What makes Your site so special?”, and You are right there are millions of like websites, but what makes it so special is “I Am doing what I Love doing, and that is providing un-biased information to any One who desires to better their experience in this Universe!”. You are thinking “Un-biased?” How? I have on My site stuff that is beside there so called “competitors” stuff! I believe as people We can choose what is right for Us, and not require any One to filter out any thing. I Am doing some thing most believe is impossible, because We have been raised to think in order to get a head in Life, You have to be competitive! Says who? I choose to question Our so called “Beliefs”, another cool quote I have read is “Beliefs are Perception Filters!” Therefore what You believe limits or enhances Your experiences! So You can say what You were taught throughout Your entire Life structures how You perceive things. But You are not a victim of this, You have the choice to change Your beliefs at any moment! And this My Friend is profound. This is what I Love about Life the most “The Freedom of Choice!”. Once You understand that statement, and fully believe it, Your experience here makes more sense! No thing is expected from You at all, You are what, You are! And that is as simple as it gets.
For a year now lots has happened, I was laid off, chose to not ever work for any One else again, released My fear of authority and not having money, become more accepting of others, forgave every One I thought wronged Me, forgave My Self for wronging others, I Am fully responsible for every action I do! I have done a complete 180 degree turn around from who I was! And I thank every One in My Life for being My teachers!
Enjoy what I continue to provide for You on this website, for I enjoy sharing it with You!
Sincerely~Matt Sicotte 😀
