"Perhaps we are merely computer simulations of our future selves"~ discovery science
Then again it really is the minds job to validate itself. The agreement I feel ( those endorphins that make me feel good) could really just be my ego telling me that I'm right. This could all be the self full-filling prophecy of my minds internal validation system. But ya know if I'm gonna believe, 'that I'm right' either way then, I chose to believe in a world of love and overcoming. I like this thought! But I don't think it's a 'lie,' or an 'illusion.' I think that the opposite of this is the lie.
And all those other people who disagree with this have there very own set of lies and storylines that allows them to receive their own internal validation whenever something terrible happens. The mind rewards them whenever they see perceived evidence of the lies that they have been telling themselves. It really doesn't matter if you know it's real or not. If you are aware of the game or not. The system doesn't change. Am I any better for knowing this? no they are just playing a different game then me -- they have access to various levels of the game that I don't because of it, just like I have access to areas of the game that they have no access to. There is something to what you say here. I think it is a bit 'shallow' as you have described it, but there is something to what you are touching on here. Let's discuss this further.
The game/mind/ego/ whatever you wanna call it has rules - it will validate itself. if you play the victim you'll see evidence of it and you will be ever so the victim but in the realization that you are just playing a role in a giant simulation you can sorta change the game a little, but I find myself still bound by areas of myself that I am unaware.. the subconscious beliefs in limitations that the game makes real for me. Yes. There is a Ultimate Reality, I believe, and I do not experience that this reality is all just a MindGame...although I do understand some of what you are getting at here.
What about saving people in the game? ahh there is a paradox because if you shift yourself you are no longer in the same game with those previous people -- they look the same, smell the same, but they are not the same. I think we are shifting through realities itself whenever we change ourselves. Perhaps, but that does not mean that we cannot 'visit' other, former, realities. Because we change does not mean that the entirety of our exterior reality changes. Think of a harp and when you vibrate on a particular level you have access to reality only through that specific string but when you raise your own vibration you have access to an entirely new vibration. The previous vibration doesn't exist anymore -- those people are only figments of your imagination because they have been replaced with kinder, more loving, more appreciative versions of themselves. If what you are saying is that the way you move through the world affects the way the world moves through you, I agree with you. But there is much more to say on this, and I think it is dangerous to assume that the whole reality around you is going to shift because you have shifted your inner reality. This could lead to New Age Disillusionment. This all deserves a much broader discussion. I invite others to join in. Hugs...neale.
