Let’s start by defining the Matrix.

To me, the Matrix is the artificial system that has been built by the collective consciousness and has programmed us be a certain way in order to function within the culture/society we find ourselves in. It’s why we pay our taxes, why most of use work 40 hours per week Monday to Friday, why we watch Hollywood movies, why we have a 2 party political system ect..

This is the Matrix. It’s not real. And it has no reason to look like this, aside from the unconscious progression of our collective psychic energy which has carried the Matrix into its current form. The Matrix is energy. It carries with it all of the greed, joy, anxiety, intelligence, evil, and good that we all carry within ourselves.

In a way the matrix is a reflection of ourselves, all of our deepest desires are contained within it and there is a constant fighting for balance.

Most people are completely unaware that they are in the matrix, and it is meant to be that way. The Matrix would not survive if too many of us found out about its secrets.

But you, yes you, curious seeker, have made a profound discovery, yes you have. Consider yourself very lucky. You are one of the few.

You’ve discovered that the truth is not somewhere “out there” to be found. No leader, guru, politician or government has the answer, for the truth is right within you. It always has been.

And what a beautiful time it is to be alive, because we now have access to the clues that will lead to our salvation. We have internet. We have community online. All you need now to escape the Matrix is a bit of genuine curiosity and a wifi connection. We are all here waiting for you.

Trust your instincts. Do the unexpected. Find the others…

-Timothy Leary

But anyway, now that you’ve realized we live in the Matrix you can see that it’s not really a place you want to be stuck in. It will drain your soul, steal your energy, and coax you into a very meaningless existence far removed from what your highest potential calls you towards, your true purpose here on Earth.
