Old life, new life: entrances and exits

Old life, new life: entrances and exits

by Jon Rappoport

December 31, 2016

Dreams come and go. Some are forgotten, others remain. The practical side says, “You must do this, you must do that,” but the dreams that hold on say something else:

You can leave an old life and begin a new one.

This is more than hope. It’s a kind of vision composed of past moments in which the cup of joy is filled to the brim.

Nothing in this universe can wipe out those memories forever.

They come back.

And when they do, they bring energy, belief, and confidence.

A person can refuse to see the suggestions and the implications, he can pretend he’s merely floating in a brief reverie, and he can then trample on through the garden and continue his way to a bleak outpost. But still he doesn’t entirely forget.

Because he doesn’t want to.

The memories are distillations of the best of the past, and they point to a new future.

The shape of that future may be vague, but the emotions and sensations are vivid.

These feelings can rise again, if one can discover what actions will recover them. Actions, which taken together, create the substance of the years ahead.

For a baby learning what this world is, there is no tangible past. His entire thrust is discovering delight. Which reminds us that the psyche, the spirit, wants joy, naturally—and if unimpeded, will find it. Hour by hour, day by day.

Only much later, when the baby has “grown up,” does he realize he has left something behind.

Then, unfortunately, he comes to believe he can’t go back. He comes to believe that some rigid set of principles should be his North Star: through this compass setting, the best of what is possible will be his, given that limits are more important than possibilities.

But every human knows, in a part of himself that is often shielded from sight, that possibilities ring more true than limits.

When a small child paints a picture, no matter what it looks like, he can tell you a story about it. And he invests this story with a vision that is more powerful, in some mysterious way, than all of society.

Centuries from now, when historians look back on this time, no matter what they find, they will still need this lesson. They will need to know that in the soul of every person, there are colors of visions which, when acted upon, make new lives, new delight, joy, ecstasy. And the alternative is always less.

The simple compounding of these lessers, without the need for mathematical sophistication, explains the root cause of the decline of civilizations.

I built my second collection, Exit From The Matrix, on the liberation and expansion of imagination. Not just in theory, but in practice. There are dozens of imagination techniques to work with.

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, with new power.

    So exact & concise. So true to the bone. So very, very recognizable. Old life – new life. So me, over the past decade. Thank you Jon.

    Grabbed me. I thought, “How did he know this, what I have experienced recently?” The sudden unlocked memories of magical moments, all collected and more vivid than photographs in an album. No matter how much I looked for them in the past, I could never find them. Only when I looked to a new future did I discover them. How appropriate for New Year’s Eve.

  4. Joy says:

    Jon, your words read into my soul just as the line between past and future is folding in on itself, leaving only the doorway into intended, remembered, imagined possibility…

    The ‘past’ works a memory complex as an overlay present that covers over presence. Choices are actions that by repetition become ‘habits’ as IF autonomous. Persisting the choice of habit, sacrifices life of true presence in favour of an oppositional habit of an acquired ‘second nature’.
    Presence may be covered over and reaction to ‘past’ conditioning may misperceive Everything – yet what is here is all that is here – while what the mind interprets is a current ‘choice’ running blind as default.

    The attempt to escape the past is the act that makes it real in the mind so made, and by setting the past as the frame of meaning for what is now, does the identity of attempt to wield power over life, disempower under illusion of a fearfully defined conflicted self.

    Maintaining a presentation masks true intent. Masked off minds agree to differ and make collectively reinforced illusion of a fearfully defined matrix of ‘meanings’.

    The old life was who you thought and believed yourself to be, and the unfolding anew is who you release from such framed thinking to un-cover the being of. But one cannot change a choice that one is unaware of making – and kept so by the attempt to effect power over life as a self-segregating ‘mind’.

    The power that Is life has a redeeming quality to salvage true blessing from a past made in anger and thus translate and transform the basis for separation of withheld identity, into an recognition of presence – as a direct appreciation.

    The power to make meanings for your self alone is different from the power to receive inspiration and reflection to who you uniquely are – and are unfolding the expansion of appreciation as.

    Focusing in what you don’t want as if you do want it – is a result of running a past that you can never arrive in or be – so as to never re-experience the fear that split the mind into dissociation. Yet this is the way to keep a denied past forever unhealed and active – over your own experience and communication.

    The release of the past is of an unconditional acceptance for that you are – within which presence the past is NOT – unless you choose to bring it with you. This is a choice. This is where you are free to choose NOT to come from what no longer feels aligned with who you know and feel and prefer to be. Into the space made available, the movement of your being registers with you – AS you.

    Or persist in self-rejection howsoever ‘creatively’ masked by assertion that freedom lies in opposition and defiance. Yet who can be defined by the hated and know the love that is their own being? Wish-denial, anger and hate are tantrums of perceptual self-specialness that deny the exploration, freedom and sharing of who you uniquely Are. Blame is anathema to true perception. Blame is the curse of a past made real in a mind that ‘loved’ to hate.

    If you ‘deal’ in hate-thinking – there’s your choice – and your reality… as requested. If your ‘reality’ is not coherent to who you feel and know yourself to be, then what would you have to be defining yourself and this situation to be to attract such experience to you?

    Watching the mind ‘in act’ is an awakened perspective of desire and curiosity – and the shifting to a more aligned path of choice is the gift of an untrammelled imagination – for imagination under fear and blame is defended against – excepting in ‘justified retaliation’.

    I appreciated writing this as a guided morning meditation. There’s presence ‘within’ the carrier of the forms of the communication. Always new and never by rote.

    They say time changes all it pertains to
    But your memory is stronger than time
    I guess, everything does change
    Except what you choose to recall
    There’s a million good daydreams to dream on
    There’s a million good times we could dwell on

    Lyrics from: “My Favorite Memory” (Merle Haggard)

    …………………………………………………………………………..

    I just love these country music songs, there is a lot of wisdom in them.

    One that is so perfect with the time we live in is this song:

    Merle Haggard Are The Good Times Really Over
