In installment two of this seven-part series, as a way of uncovering the veiled truths and obtain answers to questions like is there something wrong with the way in which current Earth existence is designed we worked with the film, The Matrix, written and directed by Larry and Andy Wachowski as a modern myth. In the film, as part of an invitation to extract Neo from his enslaved existence, Morpheus offers Neo two options: the "red pill" or the "blue pill", with the choice of pills illustrating our right to choose between truth and illusion or ignorance. The red pill will answer the question "what is the matrix?", a question that can be answered only by removing Neo from it. On the contrary, the blue pill will ensure that his life or illusion of life will go on as before.

As installment three in this series, let's proceed from the vantage point of having taken the "red pill" and explore the design and framework of our current Earth existence with an emphasis on how many of us experience this matrix in the undercurrent of our lives. As we make our way through this exploration in part three, be assured that after addressing the risky consequences of the "unexamined life" in part four and examining the creators and keepers of the matrix in part five, part six of this series will contain suggestions about how to dispel the matrix and live a life of self-sovereignty, spiritual freedom and glory.

What is being proposed in this series might seem like heresy.What is being proposed in this series might seem like heresy. However, it's important to note that according to the Merriam-Webster dictionary, heresy is derived from the Greek word "hairesis", meaning choice, dissent or deviation from a dominant theory, opinion, or practice and a heretic is someone often described as a renegade or rebel. Etymologically according to Etymoline, a renegade, from the Spanish "renegado" means someone who denies; an apostate. Apostate, according to the Merriam-Webster dictionary is one who commits apostasy, which is the abandonment of a previous loyalty. The word apostle is a derivative of apostate and according to Etymonline, apostle, from the Latin "apostolus" means , the chief advocate of a new principle or system.

Therefore, a heretic is an apostle, a messenger and advocate of a new principle, a renegade who dares to ask questions, an intrepid explorer and independent thinker who honors the experience of being challenged by opportunities for freedom, who welcomes being stretched outside their comfort zones and who bravely detaches from external source authority in order to uncover and disseminate uncommon knowledge.

With this in mind, let's explore the concept of the matrix. The matrix is a force that operates at the level of both our individual minds and the collective consciousness of humanity (referred to as the "world mind" by Meir Schneider in his book "My Life and Vision"), and it is at work everywhere. It governs the design and framework of Earth's political and social systems, economic, educational and cultural constructs, nearly all religious structures and most New Age spiritual systems. Each of us has our own degree of internal resistance to fully acknowledging the existence of the matrix, particularly because aspects of our existence here on planet Earth include experiences of comfort, success, belonging, gratitude, love, synchronicity, grace, natural beauty, etc. These experiences make taking the "red pill" extremely challenging, and consequently, the motivation for discovering deeper levels of larger truths must be unwaveringly strong.

There are many authors who have researched, intuited and mystically discerned truths related to the design and framework of the matrix. I am not the first, nor will I be the last. Their revelatory discoveries are documented in works such as Lynn Grabhorn's Dear God! What's Happening to Us? ~Halting Eons of Manipulation~, Jim Marrs' Rule By Secrecy, Adriene Wentworth's Divine Intervention, Michael Berg's Becoming Like God, Stuart Wilde's God's Gladiators and the films of Ben Stewart Esoteric Agenda and Kymatica. I stand with them in choosing the "red pill". And as part of this exploration, I invite you to invoke a strong motivating strength and go with me beneath your experiences of either fleeting change or quotients of change that almost satisfy; beneath your experiences of temporary satiation garnered from the voluminous quantities of information this spiritual renaissance constantly delivers; below your excitement and hope accompanying the history of sixty years of paranormal experiences; under the waves of repeated opportunities for rapid spiritual awakening that you've been riding in expectant seeking. In this undercurrent, I bid all of us to acknowledge that our hunger for answers to the larger questions, for unadorned and unambiguous seeds of unequivocal new beginnings has driven us to the place of willingness to take the "red pill" the place where we heed the words of Morpheus in the modern mythical film, The Matrix when he describes the hunger to uncover whatever has been shrouded in a conspiratorial mystery as "a splinter in your mind, driving you mad" the place where, like Neo, we allow our restless but perhaps well concealed melancholy to lead us to acknowledge that "there is something wrong with the world."

What is wrong with the world is that in our current Earth reality the matrix that governs us feeds us data in the form of information and ideas. We take in the information and concepts, digest and assimilate them and then adopt the data as fact. These facts become beliefs and our beliefs take up residence within us as truth. Our truths become convictions that we defend and protect as irrefutable dogma. This is one of the primary ways in which the matrix assures its own survival. When Neo asks Morpheus "what is the matrix", he responds "control." And why is our attachment to our beliefs so unwavering? Perhaps because we do not yet sufficiently abhor the experience of being deceived and controlled.
