I’ve been thinking a lot about our ability to manifest. Law of Attraction. The Secret. Think and Grow Rich. Recently, I’ve been following the work of Jordan Peterson. He has a profound way of describing consciousness and being.
“The world is actually made of potential, and that potential is actualized by consciousness.”
Rule #1: I can’t kill anybody.
Rule #2: I can’t make anybody fall in love with anybody else.
Rule #3: I can’t bring people back from the dead.
Sounds pretty similar to our subconscious minds. We have more practical limits than a genie at least in terms of efficiency, but the fundamental truth is that we can grant ourselves almost anything wish if we are committed to the intention.
The key to this is to actually continually evolve ourselves to Truth.
“The Truth is something that burns. It burns off deadwood, and people don’t like having their deadwood burned off, oftentimes because they are like 95% deadwood.”
One of the things that has been profound recently is a commitment to the Truth. In marriage, in friendships, and in business.
“If you want to have a good relationship, man, you embed it in the Truth because if you don’t embed it in the Truth, you don’t have a relationship.”
A Truth that is uncomfortable for people that I’ve recently been exploring is the idea that we have evolved for millions of years as a male dominance selection hierarchy mediated by female choice.
“The dominance hierarchy is something that breeds heroes.”
Heroes are meta-admirable, and the ideal person, the ideal man, is the person who tells the Truth. This always leads me back to the rabbit hole of the Red Pill from the Matrix.
Which led me to this documentary, The Red Pill.
“All that my film advocates for is critical thinking for yourself as a viewer.” -Cassie Jaye
It was an interesting documentary. These days, with all the different loud factions spreading hate and fear and victim consciousness, there needs to be a greater focus on Truth and Responsibility.
We cannot find the Truth until we release our self-delusional frames of reality. We need to set the Genie free. Rather than wishing for things for our ego or worldly desires, we need to let go and discover our purpose that is greater than ourselves.
