“I’m trying to Free Your Mind, Neo, but I can only show you
the door, you’re the one that has to walk through it…
You have to let it all go, Neo, fear, doubt, and disbelief.”~ Morpheus
I have two things for you today…
- Morpheus and Neo riff on ‘Free Your Mind;’ and
- 40% on my Evolutionary Mystic Meditation: Foundations Home Study Course thru this Friday, November 16th.
One) The Matrix is one of my fave movies. It’s a modern parable for the royal road to enlightenment and shaking off the mental programming that keeps you playing way too small for your Mystical Self.
And it’s a lot of fun…with some spectacular fight scenes.
One of my fave scenes is when Neo is having hours and hours of skills downloaded into his brain. Skill sets like combat training, Taekwondo, and Kung Fu.
Ready to test his young recruit, Morpheus challenges Neo to spar; and to a test of Mind of Matter. Wisdom, high jinx, and some all-around kick-assery ensue.
In just 212 words Morpheus conveys the essence of transcending The Self…and the wisdom of surrendering to Vast Spaciousness and Eternal Stillness.
Here’s their short, sweet, and profound scene.
Neo: I know Kung Fu.
Morpheus: Show me.
(Enter the Dojo program)
Morpheus: This is a sparring program, similar to the programmed reality of the Matrix. It has the same basic rules, rules like gravity. What you must learn is that these rules are no different that the rules of a computer system. Some of them can be bent. Others can be broken. Understand? Then hit me. If you can…
Then some dazzling fight scenes choreographed by Kung Fu master Yuen Woo-ping (who also choreographed the fight scenes for Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon).
Morpheus: Good. Adaptation…Improvisation…But your weakness is not your technique.
Then some fabulous kick-assery…
Morpheus: How did I beat you?
Neo: You’re too fast.
Morpheus: Do you believe that my being stronger or faster has anything to do with my muscles in this place?
You think that’s air you’re breathing now?
Then some breathtaking kick-assery…
Morpheus: What are you waiting for? You’re faster than this. Don’t think you are, know you are…. Come on. Stop *trying* to hit me and HIT me.
But wait, then there’s ever more fabulous kick-assery…
Neo: I know what you’re trying to do.
Morpheus: I’m trying to Free Your Mind, Neo, but I can only show you the door, you’re the one that has to walk through it…You have to let it all go, Neo, fear, doubt, and disbelief. Free Your Mind.
Free Your Mind, indeed.
Great advice; though easier said than done…
But why Free Your Mind?
Who would you be without your story?
Who would you be without your thoughts, decisions, beliefs, and stories?
Who would you be without the problems and limitations that obsess you?
Who would you be without this addiction to your “small Separate Self and that the voice in your head?”
Who would you be?
You would be Free…
Free Your Mind and float in Vast Spaciousness.
Free Your Mind and surrender to Eternal Stillness.
“I’m trying to Free Your Mind, Neo, but I can only show you the door…”
