No, this is nothing to do with the Movies of that name
Over the last couple of years and becoming more and more frequent, the term ‘New Matrix’ is being used in the spiritual community for new ways of doing things.
They are all about changing the way people think so that Law of Attraction will bring them what they truely want.
But the more I see these, and listen and read how people expound on them, the more concerned I’ve been getting about them. This finally came into focus yesterday after reading the justification for a previous post about one such ‘new matrix’ concept.
Dont get me wrong, I’m all for changing the way people think so that they concentrate on what they want, instead of what they dont have and what upsets them. This is important work. As long as its “follow my example” and not “do as I say” presented !
There are 2 things that are always in play to hold people back from walking their spiritual and healing path.
The first is the Ego. It continually tells us that the quick and easy path is there to take. That you dont need to do things the long slow way, but you can do it in one easy affirmation. That the past doesn’t matter, because you are manifesting the future. Why spend a lot of time doing the hard work, when hey, its actually easy to do in one go.
The second is the group of beings who work to hold the Earth and those on it in a state of stasis. Their aim is to prevent the Earth from ascending, keep people in a state of ‘organised’ chaos and revelling in the excesses of the 3d state of being.
This group uses the Ego to do their work through. And human nature being what it is, anything that seems an easier way to do things is seized apon.
Karma is Cause and Effect. Each thought, word and deed causes an effect. Each effect has a cause, even if you cant see what it was. Effects carry forward with the soul as it reincarnates accross space, time and dimension.
What happens to you now, is the result of what you thought, said and did in the past.
Law of Attraction is what you think will be what happens. So if you want something to happen in the future, you need to create it with your thoughts now.
So in a way, Law of Attraction is part of karma. But its only the part that is concerned with creating the future.
It tells you nothing about the now.
Many people believe that manifesting the future just requires affirmations of what you want, a positive mindset that concentrates on what you want and ignores what you dont like about now. And so it does, but only up to a point.
To understand the NOW, you need to look back for what created it. If you do not like your ‘now’, then understanding why it has come to you is important to understanding how to change it.
What is NOW, came about because you made choices. And the NOW is bound by the choices you MADE. The choices you make now will be what brings the future, but how long this takes, and what form it can happen in, depend on the NOW and the choices you make to get there. But the choices you make now start with the current situation and if that situation does not support the new choice, then it cannot manifest as you wish.
Karma is ongoing. It never ends.
Law of Attraction will help you into the future, but many people need to undo the past.
And this is where Ego and the Ones who block, sabotage people’s healing path by giving them good reasons for taking the simple easy path.
Its very easy to see this happening. In forums all the time you get people making constant affirmations about what they want in the future and how wonderful it is to be manifesting what they want, and yet these same people are also demonstrating by their constant requests for support that nothing is actually happening, or what is happening is very slow to happen.
Why is this ? They are ignoring the WORK.
Each person is born with a life contract to do certain work, walk a certain path, and may have a spiritual purpose that involves helping others. The work one must do is contained in lessons and is manifested according to karma. Even helping others may be a manifestation of ones own work needed for one’s own path.
I keep telling people the importance of walking the walk.
Way to many spiritual ‘teachers’ stand on a virtual soapbox in some forum or other and preach their message. This is talking the talk. Talking doesn’t actually take you anywhere. Its a form of “do as I say, because I think you should” and is a very Indigo trait, which is not surprising considering so many of the spiritual ‘teachers’ now are Indigo.
Walking the walk is different. Its actually walking your spiritual path, continually working on yourself as you help others, continually doing your own WORK. This includes releasing karma from past lives, forgiveness of individuals and situations, affirming love for all beings, especially the ones you dont like.
Talk doesn’t require MOVEMENT. Walking does.
Helping other people alone, is not walking your path. Its sitting on a rock helping people.
Walking the walk is being an example to people of how to do things. Your not telling them anything, your just walking past inviting them to follow if they feel guided, and then imparting knowledge and method when asked for help or clarification of what it is your doing.
Walking your path means following your life contract and doing the things you agreed to do before birth. You have freewill and freewill can choose timing and how and where to address lessons, and this is the exercise of choice.
Each choice you made led you to where you are now. The now is bound by the choices already made. To change the now, you must first change the choices.
The ‘New Matrix’ would have you believe that simply changing the choice is all you need. In affirming a changed choice, so will it be. (Dig hole in sand, insert head here).
“You are the architect of your own imprisonment.” (Raymond E. Feist). Your choices had effects and the now you are stuck in is the result of those choices. To get unstuck, you need to change the choices AND change the effects.
I see this in feng shui consultations all the time. People choose a house that manifests the lessons and karma they need to work on. But until they have learnt the lesson and released the karma involved, they will not be able to manifest anything different. Only after they have finished the reasons for the choice, will they be allowed to make the changes they need to manifest something better. In many cases, they need to move house first. And the difficulty of doing that is often specified within the feng shui of where they want to leave.
If the “New Matrix” works for you, follow it.
But if it doesn’t work as advertised, then you need to look at what your life contract is asking you to do and instead of getting on the transport device and teleporting from A to Z in an instant (and how disappointing it is when it doesn’t engage), put on your walking shoes and walk the walk, doing your work while you walk.
I’m not asking you to accept “this is the way its always been done”, because I dont accept it myself. I’m saying that “nothing beats good old fashioned hard work” and our spritual healing journey is no exception.
The choice is yours.
