Inspiring Your Authentic Week

Awake

Posted: 12 Nov 2007 08:18 AM CST

Psychologist and hypnotist Charles Tart describes the the sate that many of us live a large part of our life in as being in a hypnotic trance.  Our education, the media, jobs and so on all combine to hypnotize us into a dream state where our lives follow the program that is set by society.  

Another view of society as a trance was in the film The Matrix where the programming of peoples minds was represented by the whole artificial experiential world of The Matrix.

Within the trance we are sure that this is “reality”.  We are sure that there is no real choice.  We are sure that the path we are on is the only one.  We are afraid of challenging the trance.

And yet we all awaken, we all enjoy moments of clarity, consciousness, enlightenment, authenticity.

From within the trance, these moments appear to be unreal, appear to be false, idealistic, unrealistic.

From a state of being awake it is the trance that appears to be unreal.

What is real?  Take a look at this clip, before you decide.

How would we know if our life was a being lead from within a trance?

The clearest evidence of our level of awakeness or consciousness is in the level of responsibility that we feel.  When we are within the trance it is difficult to feel responsibility much beyond our selves or our immediate tribe (whatever form that may take). 

When we are fully awakened we feel and act on a sense of responsibility that spans all life the past and the future.

Within this it is important to bear in mind that our level of wakefulness varies (and therefore responsibility) with circumstance.  There will always be situations that can bounce us back to our sleeping state.  The journey is abount spending more of our time being more awake.

If you feel a big sense of responsibility and your life’s purpose is to inspire the evolution of consciousness or to inspire authenticity in others you may be interested in coming to the Authentic Transformation Advance – the last one was “Amazing” – the next ones are in Mallorca in March and California in April – take a look at the video and the web page to find out more.

If you want to wake yourself up, from the 7th of January we will be opening Authentic Transformation Why Me?  This is a full time centre in Mallorca where anyone looking for a deeper understanding of life can come and stay for as little as a week or as long as they like for €100 per night excluding flights and food.  Please e-mail for details.

with love

Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of the earth. Your playing small does not serve the world. Theres nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people wont feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do… And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As were liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
