Simply Inspired

I remember some where I read, or heard that ‘Inspired’ is Being ‘In Spirit’. Which now to Me makes sense. The Latin Definition uses words like ‘Thunder-Struck, Stunned, Frantic…’. The English Dictionary defines it as ‘Of such surpassing brilliance or excellence as to suggest divine inspiration, aroused or guided by or as if aroused or guided by divine inspiration, and extremely accurate or apt but based on intuition rather than knowledge or logical deduction’ . This is cool as well, when You break the word a part, You get In, and Spire. In has various meanings, the one for this context is ‘To, Toward’. And Spired means ‘A top part or point that tapers upward; a pinnacle’.

Those definitions seem to all point to a Source (A God if I may). I find this rather intriguing to write the least. For example when I say “Some thing Inspired Me to Do that!”, or “You Inspire Me!”. What Do You think of when You read those statements? I personally think of some thing outside of My Self guided Me,. What? I Am unsure. The word it Self points to in side of You , and some thing out side influences.

Think back to a moment that Inspiration had happened. It is kind of weird really, and powerful. To think some thing beyond logic, aided You in some thing at that moment, which may have seemed impossible. It happens more frequent than one may think about. For instance, this website. All this came to Me out of Inspiration, Honestly! The name Umattr, all the content I write. It is rather Incredible really!

Being Inspired is a Connection to a Source that is most Valuable. When You let go of the ego momentarily, or permanently,  that is when You will find Inspiration happens most definitely! The ego is a wall between Us and what ever Created Us,. False identity is the ego, drop the ego and You will Be Your True Self! That is rather Inspiring 🙂

Enjoy!

Simplicity

I just watched this movie titled ‘Oh Canada’. It is a comical view of how Canada and the rest of the Planet is complex with its monetary system, governments, constitutions, etc… In the past I would have eaten these views up, but I have realized that every thing in Life is simple. We create complexity, really think about this… Look at some of what We call “advanced and complex”, for example building a rocket. You may say building a rocket is complex, but have You noticed any thing complex has been engineered by many people in a collective manner. One simple thought combined with many other simple thoughts will create a collective of complexity(namely one complex idea from many simple sources). So Our rocket, We have many engineers with some thing to contribute to the final result. This holds true for every thing else! Every thing is simple when broken down to its main components. The most simple You can get is “Every thing is Energy”. Every thing vibrates, that is how We may see some thing, hear some thing, touch some thing, and so forth…

We have been taught to think most stuff is complex and You require a advanced education to under stand or create stuff. Well I have a what You would call a basic education, and I under stand quite a lot. We all know the answers to every thing, We just have been choosing to think We do not. If You take the time to relax and clear Your mind when presented with a issue, You will be truly amazed at how You will eventually come up with the solution. I have done a experiment time and time again, to see if that last statement is true. You may do this as well, lay out in front of You a space to place categories of what ever You like. For example Person, Place, Object, Food… Now write down on pieces of paper things that would go into these categories, make at least 50 pieces of paper with various names. Now get a clock, or stop watch to time Your results. What You are going to do is mix the pieces of paper up, and when You are ready place each piece of paper in the above categories. Do it as fast as You can, and mark down the time it took You to do so. Now, go for a walk, read a book, eat a snack, simply just relax for a while. Come back to Your space, and mix up the pieces of paper again. Now place the pieces of paper near the above categories, but this time, take Your time doing it. Calmly and relaxed place each of the pieces in their categories. When You are done mark Your time down. I will bet You that You did it faster and with more accuracy?! My point is if You are relaxed and calm, Your mind works more efficiently and effectively. This will work for any thing You do, trust Me.

I will leave on this note, “truly imagine a World with out money” I mean We operate with out economics altogether, not lack there of, but truly living with out money. How would that feel?

The movie below, is the movie I wrote about briefly above, about 2 hours in length. It is interesting, but does not support My beliefs what so ever. I viewed it as purely entertainment. No offense to the director.

Assumed Higher Powers

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 stand  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 certainty  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!

Enjoy!
