Does a fish Know, They’re In Water ??

Does a fish Know, They’re In Water ??

This perspective-shattering idea is cited by many different people. I haven’t found a definite source, “A fish doesn’t know water is wet.”

Wetness is in one way all a fish knows. But because water is the base of the fish’s entire experience, it doesn’t know how wetness compares to other states. It has no non-wet point of reference from which to evaluate wetness.

Much in the same way, we are often totally unaware of the contexts that immerse us because they immerse us. The most influential things that frame our lives can go unnoticed. We are rarely analyse of the mediums through which we experience. Without a mirror, you can’t see your eyes.

Culture is a great example to demonstrate this. Experiencing culture shock is like a fish having an out-of-water-experience. When you encounter a way of life that rests on different assumptions than yours, it forces you to reexamine the assumptions you live by. You experience the world through filter's, filtered through your cultural operating systems. But you don’t realize you even have these assumptions until you open the new neural pathways in your mind and encounter a differnt way of operating from. Think about the contexts that immerse you. Your culture. Your family. Your mind and the way it functions. Your body and the way it feels. 

What is it that you cannot see because your immersed in it ?

How might you be blind to the processes through which you experience the world?

The Body is The Filter For This Reality

Something i have asked myself on loads of occasions is" yes i know i am not my body, but why does it seem to be that there is this important connection that needs to take place between our consciousness and the body even though i know we inherently aren't the body ????.  

If you think you are only inside your skin and you define yourself as a little meat suit floating around on a big blue rock in space and you were nothing before and nothing after and we now we cut ourselves off from the thing before and after, you need to realise you are still the thing before and after. you are not just the meat suit on the big blue rock you are the thing before and after you are the everything. (This Quote below was similar to what i heard few years ago by Alan Watts)

So i have thought about the question above a lot and tried to answer below

SO NOW TO TRY AND ANSWER MY OWN QUESTION: 

We all know that life as we know it in this physical reality is absolutely dependant on the body. Lungs to breathe, heart to pump blood around the body, Gut to digest the food that supplies the body and mind nutrients. Without these, there is no life. Not only are humans dependant upon these for life, but even animals and plant life is likewise dependant upon similar functions for continued existence.

Your body is the first thing you make contact with and also the last thing. For instance, exiting the womb, an infant connects there life form into the body And behold, life on earth begins. Likewise, an old man gives a faint gasp, his last contact is made with the body and life on earth ends. From the first contact with the body of an infant, to the last gasp of a dying man, life is one long story of continued connection to the body.

Your body is with you for your whole life. We experience everything through it. It is the filter through which reality passes to become our perceptions. The state of your body affects the state of your reality as well as your state of mind. Bringing awareness to your body is the most important component that i am currently at now on my journey. I can tell you how to eat, i can tell you how to move, i can even tell you how to think, but if you tap into, hear and become your own awareness, You will be able to tell yourself how to do all the things above. This awareness can also transcend over to the whole human experience, from the way you look at somebody else to the way you view a leaf, to the way you view your reality.

Learn how to feel your body. Practice paying attention to it. More so than anything else, this skill can act as your physical compass. This compass can be developed by anyone, it just take's training your attention. Learn to pay attention to the quality of your breath, to the tension you build up in your head when you’re stressed, or the way your body feel's when you move. Ten to twenty minutes after eating, ask yourself how you feel. Is your stomach heavy; do you feel groggy, heavy or light? Do you still feel hungry? Do you feel well-energized and satisfied? Do the same thing after you exercise, sleep and even after engaging in a conversation with somebody

Your goal isn’t to mold your body into some idealized shape like pressing dough into a cookie cutter; your goal is simply to play with balance in the body you bring to the cushion, to feel how the sensations and energies in the body keep lightening up as the segments of the body keep lining up, one above the other.  (Quote below by Unknown)

Tracking the state of your body will give you the information you need to make healthy choices. Through learning how your body reacts to what you consume and the actions you take, you can discover what is good for your body. Your body is central to your quality of life. Take care of your body, and your body will help take care of you. Learn to pay attention to the signals from your body; make friends with the cells, neurons, fibres, bacteria, inner senses and sensory parts of your being. For some not finely understandable reason all these signals in the body seem to be the doorway to the seed of the self, the consciousness, a way to communicate to your true self, the real driver of your meat suit. Once you tap into, connect and open up these pathways and can now communicate with the consciousness, It will be one of the best things you ever do for yourself.

From the perspective of the world’s great spiritual traditions, our body not only brings needed information to the physical body, but it will also invigorate and activate’s the energy flow within our subtle and energetic bodies. With enough accumulation of energy absorption, new frontiers of awareness light up and the finer spiritual dimensions of interconnection emerge. Whatever we may believe about our body it is intimately connected with all aspects of our being. The Body is the vessel for our consciousness Manifested for consciouss expression and experience in the this reality. It is an integral part of one's nature, and experience. To align the body, the Soul, and spirit will allow you to No thyself and in that Expression serve others. 

Hope this piece of writing can inspire you to step into your own awareness.

Cultural Operating Systems

When you start questioning the nature of human experience – how or why we perceive things the way we do, – very quickly, what we think of reality begins to unravel. You realize that most of “reality” is constructed in our minds. Our brains are always being selective about what they focus on and what they ignore completely, meaning that we can disregard a huge amount of information. And vice versa, What information are we discarding? What information are we allowing in? our brains are also filling in the blanks in order to make sense of what’s happening. but what are those blanks? what are you filling those blanks with? 

The Great Terence McKenna speaks of “cultural operating systems” and says there is certain things that can open your eyes to it. And he speaks about being more curious to what your own cultural operating system looks like..........

So just think for a second about how many different cultural operating systems are constantly playing over and over again in your psyche? radio, television, computers, friends, family, advertisement boards when you walk or drive down the street, teachers, work colleagues even me who has wrote this ;) so forth and so on............. data has been arriving every since we where born.

 

But what happens when the cultural operating system is wiped clean?

Who knows? Maybe we will never be fully wiped clean? maybe the nature of the game doesn't allow us to be fully wiped clean? 

Terrance mkenna speaks about the process of replacing the cultural operating system and speaks about how when we do replace it something older more vitalistic, more in touch with the animal soul replaces it, replaces the cultural operating system, something not determined by history and geography but something write in the language of the flesh itself. 

 

Then the question is, well, how does one download a new operating system?

So first of all you have to clear some space in your harddrive . The best way to do this is probably start of by drinking a glass of water and blow some air in and out of your harddrive. And also switching off your harddrive every now and again is also a great cleaner....... I find sitting still works best for this one, however over the last few year i have found out that moving my body in many different ways can also be a great way to shutdown the harddrive :) 

I have not yet, delved into the world of the plant medicine ayahuasca, but through my extensive research and friends i have heard it is an excellent hardrive cleaner. As are many other Psychedelics. Ans just like a computer, i have heard You can put a lot of things in the trash and have them just disappear very fast. however just like a computer you still cannot just clear the trash once and its now completely working smooth and clean and you have more memory back. You have to keep updating it and cleaning out the trash using many different tools and hacks 

 

What are some of them Tools and Hacks?
 

Yoga, Mediation, Seeking new Information, Eating Real Foods, Surrounding Yourself around positive people, Exercise, Getting out into nature, going for a walk, Breathing, Grounding, Mindfulness, Float tanks and so on. incorporating as many of these different practices as you can will work towards replacing the cultural operating system. 

Then Terrance McKenna talks about how You are not naked when you take off your clothes you still wear your religious assumptions, your prejudices, your fears, your illusions, your dillusions. When you shed the cultural operating system then, essentially, you stand naked before the inspection of your own psyche and its from that position, a position outside the cultural operating system that we can begin to ask real questions about what does it mean to be human? 

Knowing or Not Knowing at All

“There’s a ant in the street, you walk by it. Does the ant know that you think you’re smart?

The ant has no concept of your intelligence. Because you’re that much smarter than the ant ?. So maybe the ant has no idea that something smart is walking by it ?. Which makes me wonder whether we have any concept if a super species walked by us ?. Maybe or maybe not ? maybe they’re uninterested in us because we’re too stupid for them to even imagine having a conversation?. How often do you really walk by ants and go “ee I wonder what the ant is thinking.” This is just not a thought that you have?

So most would just presume We are so much smarter than a ant and that it has no way of even imagining our level of intelligence?  It might know enough to get out of the way so it doesn’t get squashed, but that’s about it?.

If we are that much smarter, that much more aware than the ant, then why couldn’t there be an organism somewhere in the universe that much smarter than us??

Perhaps we’ve encountered such a being and not even known it? Maybe something so intelligence has strolled right by Earth or even on earth right by your shoulder without us even realising??

So, how smart are we really?

The Consciousness Warrior

I am going to give you a scenario to imagine.....................

Imagine one day, maybe in a different time, a different dimension, a different time, a different galaxy, a different world, inside a different consciousnesses or in a different reality we one day decided to all be Warriors of Consciousness.

TIME OF IMBALANCE AND MISDIRECTION

Where ever our souls of existence were at that moment, we decided to embark on an incredible, journey, a journey across the plain of time. To visit a big beautiful blue planet full of life, energy, light, oceans and trees. Placed just right in between the sun, not too hot to burn, and not too cold to freeze. On this planet, it was a time imbalance, where there is a big tip of balancing just on the cusp of happening.  A time in history, to change the course of the human existence and the chance to enter this new sense of reality, a chance to change and heal the planet. A time to make a change within the current situation that has played out or unfolded.

HOWEVER

This was a mission only the best consciousness warriors would be able to do. In known that when there energy force strikes the earth and is reborn again into a human form, he or she will have to regain everything Known of all the distractions, fear and anger they will face along the way. They would have to rediscover what they already knew or thought they knew and find the warrior again?

CHALLENGE ACCEPTED

So now we have all accepted this journey, we wait for it to unfold 

Before the day where your journey is going to unfold, you cannot sleep as you know the next day you wake; you are going to one of the most beautiful places in the cosmos. You are so excited you ring your fellow consciousness warrior buddy and tell him, "Guess where I am going tomorrow brother, Where, The big Blue Planet", "me too bro, I will see you down there somewhere,"

"it is our purpose to be all Consciouness warriors" Daniel Harrison

 

THE JOURNEY UNFOLDS

Birth 

LIVING LIFE OR JUST LIVING 

"We are now living our life" or living the system? From a early age you just know deep down inside there is something more, there are questions unanswered.  Information hidden something else but you not quite sure what it is.

CONSCIOUSNESS CALLING

You start asking yourself questions you never asked your inner self. 

"What is my purpose?" 

"Where am I going?" 

"Who am I" 

"Why am I here".........and so on and on and on

THE CONSCIOUS LEAK

If you feel the call to take action and stand up for the good of your body and mind it’s consciousness calling.  Are you just going sit there? Pretend you didn't hear it?

No doubt you’ve given all of this serious thought. And I know many of you have already activated and it’s absolutely beautiful. I’m proud to be associated with so many amazing, loving committed people. I think we just need to be adaptive and prepared for more. The cosmic winds are picking up and starting to gain momentum and the battlefield is becoming more fluid and real, more challenging and more demanding. The War on Consciousness is here

AWAKING THE CONSCIOUS WARRIOR

Are you going to awaken the conscious warrior? and let your real journey and purpose unfold ? 

Really hope you enjoyed my theory of the consciousness warrior.

One thing is for sure, we are all still trying to figure out what our real purpose is on this planet, but there is one thing for sure, We are all just trying to help humanity, reconnect back to mother nature and back on equal Libran with the earth, because we are loosing that, and a think aswell this current system is not going to last, it cannot, cause things that do not work cannot last. Always think out of the box and don't let anyone tell you what you can and can not  do and remember to enjoy the journey.

Peace My Consciousness Warriors Dan

The Awakening and Truth Movement

―  "A master will never tell anyone, I am fully awake, because then that would mean there is nothing else’s to learn" ―  Dan Harrison

We have always got to keep flowing, We have always got to keep growing, learning, experimenting, keep going out of our comfort zone, keep challenging ourselves and get in align with people that are align with what you are doing and been supportive. 

This experience of life is a gift.

The human body Is a gift

Be true to yourself

Force yourself to learn and grow

YES, there are going to be challenges but we need to embrace them

― Carlos Castaneda “Only as a warrior can one withstand the path of knowledge. A warrior cannot complain or regret anything. His life is an endless challenge, and challenges cannot possibly be good or bad. Challenges are simply challenges.” ― 

And a think what Carlos Castaneda is saying is embrace the journey of everything that is throwing our way

It's not about standing in a false conciseness bubble, there is so much deception going on in the world. A lot of people are attracted by the subconscious truth and the true remembrance of who we truly are, and there’s a lot more people becoming in tune with this fact, which is absolutely amazing however it only takes one emperor with no clothes on to divert us back to where we were.

Something that plays a huge role in our life which is very external and influences our lives every day, which is the government, the power to be or whatever else you want to call it.  We are constantly laid down to abide by laws and regulations, something very dependent for our society

or is it ????????????

Yes the government or powers to be are defiantly shaping our reality and have for ages, but however, a still think it is a conscious decision on our behalf and what a see in a lot, are people actually just trying to avoid their own reality. Yes.  We are still evolving and always will be, so then i think we have got to know how we can use that to our advantage, yes, we are being manipulated, yes, we are being lied to, but we need to increase our choices and increase our consciousness and for me that means looking at what I consume, how I even react to certain situations, who I let into my environment, what food I consume and much more.

So In a world with many fake laws, many fake rules, always remember the only law that really matters is Universal Law 

What is My Universal Law

In a world drowning in illusions and lies, there is absolutely nothing more powerful than the spread of real Truth. We are all responsible for the future of this planet, and the only way we can create a better one is through personal responsibility, followed by action and to all come together as one.

But even what I have been saying in this post and everything thing else I have said, done or wrote, i don’t just want people to accept what i'm saying, I want you to question me and go on your own journey. Make it your own and do your own research and that’s how you really do find yourself and will find your path.

The Game of Life

We are a energy force in a Human Avatar. We are playing in one of the best and most well constructed video games the world has ever seen. We are a player in a game called Human and our current level is Earth. So let’s play! Once we surrender to that fact, we can all take a deep breath and view life as one big training Lesson.

  • At the start of the game, you had no control over who you were or your environment.
  • However when the game really begins you do have a choice over your environment and how you decide to train your character and what other characters you allow to join forces with 
  • All players die after about 30,000 days, or 80 years. If your skills are good, you might last a little longer. There is no Hack code to extend this. YET
  • Your past decisions drastically shape where you end up, and if you’re happy, healthy, fulfilled – or not – in your final days there’s far less you can do about it.
  • That’s why your strategy is SO important. Because by the time most of us have figured life out, we’ve used up too much of the best parts.

Now we all best get playing the best game of life

 

I really hope this read inspires you to also live you own game of life and do cool things too.

Earth is the School & Life is the Classroom

If earth 🌎 is the school and Life is the Classroom, 📕 What's the best Lesson you have ever Learnt???

I have recently posted a video on my social media asking the question above.  My inspiration came from the book 'The 4 Purposes Of Life' and my recent Podcast i have just recorded, with Dan Millman. 

In my opinion, it’s a brilliant way to look at life, and i think if we come from a perspective that earth and life is a school with every situation that comes our way, we can really appreciate every detail. When you think about 'Earth' it is a perfect school and the more i think deeper about that concept, the more i really think that’s why we are here. We are here to learn and grow. You are evolving now, right now, right this second as you are reading this.

Lessons repeat themselves until we learn them

And this is so true because every day we get new sings, new visions, new lessons and a lot of our time we do resist and ignore them. We see the call, but we don't answer it.

I really do believe more people will be able to see the call when we become more in tune with our human body and more conscious of our body and thoughts. There are a lot of things we can do... Start eating foods and using methods that DE calcify the pineal gland, but the problem is there is a lot of people eating processed crap. Our bodies are getting hit with toxins and these things are surpassing our pineal gland and real inner voice. When we can change all this, we can become more in tune with our vessel and we can notice the call.

"There came a time when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful, than the risk it took to blossom"


If earth 🌎 Is the school and life is the classroom. 📕 What's the best lesson I have ever learnt???

The Best Lesson in all honesty that I have learnt "The more we think we know about health, life, earth, consciousness, the human body and mind the more we find out, we don’t know shit. I truly believe that when we come from that perspective and realize, we can always be a student and teacher and willing to learn every single thing that comes our way in life. We can then come from an angle of open minds towards everything.

"Always be willing to listen and learn, and you will always be your most authentic self"

Would Love to hear What's the best Lesson you have ever Learnt???
