What has been called The Matrix is a series of layers. These layers compose what we call Reality. Reality is not merely the consensus people accept in their daily lives. It is also a personal and individual conception of limits. It is a perception that these limits are somehow built into existence. But this is not true.
What I’ve done here is remove the lid on those perceived limits. This isn’t an intellectual undertaking. It’s a way to open up space and step on to a new road.
That road travels to more and more creative power, joy, and fulfillment.
During that great adventure, the individual experiences what has been labeled “paranormal” and “synchronistic” and “magical.” These words really don’t do us justice. They only hint at what we are and what we can do.
I put this collection together because it expresses, explains, and shows, in detail, how the individual can rediscover and reclaim his/her true power.
That process, that engagement, that life, is beyond solving problems. Our problems, at the core, exist only because we have “misplaced an infinity.”
The Wizard of Is surveys the world and the universe and says, “Here it all is. This is what will eliminate the need for you to invent your own world.”
Translation: “It will keep you in a beautiful prison forever, because all roads lead through a maze that takes you back to the beginning, where you started. Who could ask for anything more? It’s complex, it’s a Matrix, it’s challenging, it’s joyous and painful, it’s a thrill a minute. Or, you can lie down and go to sleep.”
The Wizard of Is is the maestro of What Is. He does everything he can to convince you that What Already Is is your best option, your destiny, your home of homes.
After that, you only have to find your place. The Wizard is very good at cooking up mumbo-jumbo about you needing a particular place and how, when you find it, things fall together and click together for you.
“We’re making this endless TV series called Reality and there are billions of roles available. If we can find your best role, you’ll fit it like a glove, and then you’ll be happy.”
The Wizard then makes sure to indicate that challenging What Is is a very difficult road. It opens you up to all sorts of dangers, he says. The Wizard has lots of experience in wielding the stick and the carrot.
What are some of the characteristics of What Is? It’s always there. You can always see it and look at it and get involved with it. It’s outside yourself. It’s like a vast painting in a museum—except you walk into it and live there. It’s made for you. It’s apparently seamless—once you’re inside it. It doesn’t break down and reveal rips in its fabric. It endures.
You can approach it from many angles—political, economic, social, medical, military, scientific. But above all, What Is is a Continuum, which is to say it’s an interlock of space-time-energy. It all fits together. Each aspect enforces and confirms every other aspect.
The idea of exiting from it seems absurd. You’re there, and there you will stay. Your job is to fit in, to find your place, your role, your destiny.
A great deal of Wizard-of-Is propaganda surrounds it. For example, you have no capacity to exceed its parameters. You can make use of technology to explore and manipulate certain pieces of What Is, but without technology you’re lost. Therefore, those who supply you with technology are your masters.
The Wizard states that he is your guide. He’ll help you navigate What Is to your advantage. This is your best option. Your only option.
All of this is a highly sophisticated form of hypnosis.
This external Matrix couldn’t operate at all—unless the human perceptual apparatus was designed to mesh and merge with it. But this apparatus is only a fragment of the possible range of perception.
The clumsy word “paranormal” is used to explain (and deny) the capacity to see beyond the structure of Matrix.
The Wizard says, “You don’t want to look too closely at the Matrix. It’ll lead to disillusionment. You’ll feel depressed. You won’t know what to do. You need to accept the Matrix. All happiness stems from that.”
However, the truth is more complex than that. You need to cultivate both an acceptance and a rejection. Here is the paradox: acceptance gives you a platform from which to reject.
This should have been the message of Zen for the last several thousand years. And perhaps in the hands of a certain few teachers, it was. But for the most part, the message of Zen has been about spiritual insight and breakthrough leading to acceptance.
That’s half a meal. It’s unstable. It breaks down. In time, the devotee finds himself at sea, cut off from his own creative power, unwilling to exercise it, for fear that he’ll overstep his mandate as a human being.
I cite Zen, but in fact almost every spiritual system devised in so-called civilized cultures has carried the same message. Accept What Is, period.
This makes the Wizard rejoice. It’s his device, his con.
Some years ago, I was interviewed by a host who urged me to talk about the Matrix. With every step I took, he assented and pushed me forward. But I could see in his rushed agreement all the signs that he was becoming more and more uncomfortable.
He was looking for a new system to replace the old. He wanted a conclusion, a wrap-up that would confirm his hypnotized belief in What Is.
It was, all in all, quite amusing. He was saying yes, yes, while he was thinking no, no. He wanted a better prison, a kinder warden, that’s all.
So I introduced the idea of the Wizard of Is. Then, I really saw him go into internal paroxysms. He looked like he was about to fall off his perch.
He was dedicated to systems all the way down. He wanted to be surrounded and comforted by a structure that would eliminate the need for him to do anything—while he pretended that was not the case.
I said, “Look, if you really like systems, invent your own. You don’t have to be living under the umbrella of someone else’s.”
I saw a light go on in his mind.
“That’s interesting,” he said slowly.
“Sure,” I said. “Keep on inventing systems if that’s what you want to do. Maybe some day, you’ll come to the end of it and you’ll create something you really want to that isn’t a system.”
“Well,” he said, “I suppose that’s possible.”
After the interview, he took me aside and told me, “You know, I rarely think about a new idea on these shows. I’m pretty much up to speed on everything that could happen. I’m tired of it. I’ve been looking for something else. Now I have a new idea to chew on. Maybe I can dump that Wizard you talked about…”
The Wizard isn’t forever. He just acts as if he is.
