Who am I - while watching, listening, reading, observing?
"It's All in the Eye / I of the Beholder" - this is something to remember when watching movies, series, reading books, music - equal to observing paintings and reading poems.
The "Eye / I of the Beholder" is essentially 'who I am in the moment' / 'self's starting point' - who are you in that moment watching, listening, reading, observing the moment?
Because we so substantially exist within the Mind, we don't realise how much of what we interpret, perceive, experience, feel, become aware of in a moment actually DEFINES US - not at all what we are doing / participating with. What comes up in you, YOUR MIND - are YOUR PERSONAL frames of reference, views, opinions etc.
This is why I have oftentimes throughout this process shared with individuals to utilize movies, series, music, reading books etc. as a support tool to learn more about one's own mind, oneself and so expand, grow in a faster way. As you participate with any one / all of the above - you observe, be self honest, look at and assess what comes up / triggers in your mind. In this you can accordingly decide what needs working on / change. This is a faster way to walk through dimensions of your own consciousness, bring it to awareness and eventual change.
I have done quite a few recordings on this, how exactly to develop and use your relationship with movies, series, music, books, etc. in a constructive, supportive way.
So, it's interesting to note how much I, for example, through the Portal can have access to in your words when 'talking about something / someone' - even yourself; especially the moments where people think / believe they are only speaking of others - when all the while, one can see so much, everything about them in their own words.
Therefore, suggest rather making your relationship with movies constructive and supportive for you, your personal process. Realise what you observe / experience, realise etc. is for you to see, use how you can to the best to better your self awareness living in thought word and deed. So, rather SHARE YOURSELF in and through your words with others by writing posts, making notes of what you learned, observed and realized so that others can possibly see into it and learn / realise something for themselves.
For there NOT to be a spoon, there must then be a spoon
Here is an example of my sharing, for others to possibly learn something through seeing, for a moment through my eyes / I:
What I observed in that moment, also due to the process I have walked - even during and before the time the Matrix came out (I watched it with Bernard - and him and I walked through it together in detail, which was an interesting process); then from there walked through it a couple times as I progressed in my process because I always ended up seeing, learning and observing something new about me, my mind, my mind, body self relationship etc.
After some time walking my process, watching the Matrix cause of also watching it with others, walking it with them throughout the years - as we watch the movie, reflecting on some things we find fascinating / interesting, see what we realise / see etc.: the point that came up with the moment of the spoon is that "for there NOT to be a spoon, there must be a spoon". What this means is as follows:
Yes, the boy may of stated "there is no spoon, it is not the spoon that bends, it is yourself" - HOWEVER, now you must also account of the creators, directors, writers and MANY others influences of people's minds, understanding, consciousness etc. involved with the movie. Taking all that into consideration and looking at the statement, I realized what the boy is actually showing (which Neo also realized later in the movie) is that: it's not that the SPOON DOES NOT EXIST, it's more to realise - YOU ARE A PART OF THE SPOON, as much as it is a part of you. So, when you want to BEND THE SPOON, stand as that part of you as the spoon within yourself, equal and one on all levels - then you realise as you bend in that alignment, you as the spoon will bend WITH YOU.
Because in that moment, the spoon was there - it was 'real' for both Neo and the Boy the depth of 'truth' was to see BEYOND and INTO the spoon, not look at only the surface...
Later in the movie, Neo realized this equality and oneness principle, where he MERGED WITH AND AS THE MATRIX, and became a part of it as much as it became a part of him; which allowed him access to bend, manipulate, direct, alter and change the matrix AS HIMSELF. Just because he became A PART OF the matrix does not mean he could CHANGE IT ALL - the MATRIX still exists within its individuality / individual parts = for REAL CHANGE to emerge, ALL INDIVIDUAL PARTS must align within the same starting point, principle, process, change for EVERYTHING to change...that's why in the end, the Matrix remained, partially changed yes; cause only NEO in a way stood up, bar for a few - but still not enough to change everything for the best / betterment of all, equally as one.
So, taking this to my own process, earth process, existential process in this world and through Portalling - I realized: I may be / become aware, realise equality and oneness etc. - but it's not immediately going to CHANGE THE WORLD / HUMANITY - if anything, only then one's REAL process starts of LEADING BY EXAMPLE, until ONE BY ONE all realise their potential, their utmost, their best and through us ALL as INDIVIDUALS changing and standing, one by one - the world change.
My sharings for a moment, enjoy.
