Lateral Thoughts on Life.

My Meeting with Morpheus.

It is by going down into the abyss
that we recover the treasures of life.
Where you stumble, there lies your treasure.
Joseph Campbell

Struggle and Strength are often related. Stumbling is a part of life. Too
often we focus on the pain of falling and forget to learn the right lessons.
We become traumatized instead of gaining wisdom.

Pain is more bearable when you realize that others have endured even more
than you and come through better because of it. The Chrysalis seems
unbearable but it’s a crucial part to the future flight. Keep fighting, keep
kicking, a breakthrough is coming.

We’ve all seen movies like Limitless, Inception and Total Recall but what
if these weren’t just movies. What if it was really true? What if you could
actually reprogram your mind and change your reality? What if you could meet Morpheus in real life?

Blue Pill or Red Pill ?

I did meet him and this is what happened to me when we spoke on the phone.

“Would your conscious mind be willing to learn from your unconscious mind
what the cause of the problem is ?” Dr. Wesley Morris asked.

“Yes.” I answered.

With that simple word I began a journey into my own mind.

I was guided on the journey by Dr. Wesley Morris and reached a moment in
the very distant past, felt like a previous lifetime, when I felt as though
I was being held down under water and drowning.

The strange thing is I was very calm even while drowning and did not feel
scared or fight back in any way. Another strange thing is that I could not
see anything. It was all an emotional feeling not a visual one. I think it
was the way my Subconscious mind saw the problem affecting me.

Lack of confidence was holding me down, I was drowning and not even
fighting back.

The process, which I later learned is called Timeline therapy,continued by
going even further back in time to a point before this traumatic experience.
It felt like it was way, way back ,in my case, maybe three lifetimes back.

We began to come back to the present but along the way I suddenly began to
get vivid images of an event that happened to me, in this lifetime. Some
years ago I was robbed while on a visit to Boston. I suddenly realized that
I could have fought back (I was doing Martial Arts at the time but I saw
myself not fighting but just shouting at my attacker while being willing to
fight and thereby dissuading him from attacking). My mind had reframed the
situation and was seeing new options.

Then we came back into the present. My subconscious and conscious mind both
agreed that I needed to be more assertive and fight back when necessary
rather than be passive. I then progressed on the Timeline in my mind to the
future and saw myself handling situations in a more assertive and confident
manner. Dr. Morris then brought me back into the present with a newfound
perspective on Life.

I felt great and we spoke for awhile. At one point Dr. Morris pointed out
to me that I was speaking more confidently already and I laughed. It was
true, I was already speaking clearly and fluently instead of my low-key tone
that had become customary. I told him some of the reasons why I’d always
been interested in psychology and NLP in particular. I discussed some of the
other challenges I was experiencing in my life.

Dr. Wesley Morris demonstrated the technique to me again.

This time he asked ” What problem are you facing in life now, you don’t
even have to tell me what it is write it on a paper near you. ”

I scribbled “Money” on a paper, meaning that lack of money seemed to be a
recurring decimal that was holding me back.

He then asked “Would your conscious mind be willing to learn from your
unconscious mind what the cause for the problem is?”

” Yes”

Again he guided me back in time, in a journey in my mind to a traumatic
event related to my concern, my lack of money.

To my surprise, maybe because I was getting the hang of it, or maybe
because my feelings related to money had a more recent cause, the results
were even clearer and more immediate than before.

I remembered a time, years ago, when I had substantial savings in a bank
and unfortunately that bank collapsed and I now realised that in doing so it
has shaped my attitude towards accumulation of wealth. For the last several
years I had considered it futile to strive after material wealth and had
little interest in financial planning. It sounds simple but it was a major
insight for me I had not even thought of this event for years.

Again Dr. Morris guided me to a time before the event when I was untouched
by trauma and then we reframed what happened and learnt lessons that could
help me in the future. I saw myself losing all my money again in the future
but this time reacting differently. I’d be able to calmly build back my
financial holdings. He brought me back to the present with new insight into
my problem and more importantly how to solve it. I had replaced a sense of
Futility with one of Enterprise. I could now Think Positively and Grow Rich.

Money comes and money goes but we can always build and get it back.

Dr. Wesley Morris used NLP to reprogram my brain. He did this over the
phone. His office is in Kingston Jamaica. You can find more information
about him and the innovative techniques he uses at his website

Now I’m a magnet for the ladies, I attract Success, I’m more confident,
more energetic, happier, smarter and winning more at chess. I’ve replaced a
passive and pessimistic mindset, that’s been holding me back, drowning me,
one which felt the accumulation of Money was Futile, with a sense of
Enterprise. My fears still exist but they are now spurs to action and
improvement, motivators as I Build.

Dream my friends, Dream big for they do come true !

Reasonings.

 “I realize this may sound similar to the Matrix but basically my idea is like this. I have a very active mind. I mean I might be thinking about foolishness but my mind is never blank.

    “Please don’t laugh, but suppose that you are on this Earth and, in essence, you are the only real living being on this Earth. I mean everything else is just placed here to make you believe otherwise. Everything else is like a program, some illusion that turns on whenever you are around and shuts down as you turn the corner or go to sleep.” Ebenezer Dutton spoke seriously but with a slight frown because he was worriedly wondering if his two friends would understand what he was saying or think him totally crazy.

     Young Son replied quickly saying “First of all there is no Original idea. All ideas are combinations of previous ones but perhaps placed in a new context. “

      Ebenezer nodded and said “Yes I just realized this idea is somewhat similar to the Matrix…”

      Young Son cut in before Ebenezer could finish his point and stated “What I would do is research some similar stories. As you said Matrix is one. Another one is a Fantastic Four adventure where Dr. Doom put them into a miniature World. He miniaturized the Fantastic Four and put them into a miniature World. It’s a really great comic drawn and written by John Byrne. Little things kept happening that made them suspicious though. Like in the Matrix what they use is déjà vu. Every time something happens twice they say there’s a glitch in the Matrix. The illusion is not perfect.  I think it’s a good idea but you have to frame it in some original context and also make the audience …”

    Ebenezer interjected now “No I wasn’t thinking of it as book or a movie or anything, I was just thinking of it.”

reasonings

    Young Son said “Well it’s a very big idea, man. The reason that I think it’s such a big idea is that I think it speaks to the basic human condition. All of us believe that we are the centre of the Universe.”

     Flute Snoot nodded and laughed and said “Yeah exactly”.

     Young Son continued “If your boss fires you, you believe it’s because he hates you, when it really has nothing to do with you. Part of the human condition, we believe that we are the centre of the Universe.”

     Flute Snoot said “Yeah true” while nodding and smiling.

     Young Son continued “The reality that we may be less significant than a fly on a piece of cow dung is not one we can easily accept.”

      Ebenezer said “ Yeah even here in this public park I feel like everyone is staring at me and have to keep checking if my shirt looks okay and make sure my fly is up.”

      Flute Snoots rumbly deep voice with a slightly unusual accent said, “What your idea reminded me of was the movie Truman Show where a guy is put in a small town and everyone is there really to keep him occupied for a reality show.”

       Ebenezer asked Flute Snoot “Did you see Eternal Something of the Spotless Mind?”

    “Yeah it’s the same director.” answered Flute Snoot.

     “What it reminds me of also in some bizarre way is when I was a child I used to think some of my toys were alive.” said Young Son.

       Flute Snoot laughed but Ebenezer was shocked “I had that exact same feeling.” He said.

       “That’s what I’m saying I think this is a common thing. It’s like you feel something is under your bed but when you look it is gone so as a child you think if only you could look quick enough before the Monster or Boogey Man could disappear.” Young Son said while Flute Snoot laughed and Ebenezer frowned.

  Young Son continued “It’s that paranoid feeling that the world may be set up to kill you or that there’s a lot more to the whole story.”

  Ebenezer said “I also think about how we sometimes fall asleep and lose all sense of time. I mean you sleep and when you wake up nine hours later you just continue your life. What about the guy who never slept or never fell into a coma or whatever is he ahead of you in this time continuum?”

   Young Son said “Well Einstein used to work out a lot of ridiculous questions and that’s why we call him a genius.

       “I once read an interesting book on Yoga. Frankly I thought that the book would be rubbish but in a moment of boredom I began reading it and it was very deep. The author asks the question have you ever met someone for the first time and from you meet them you just click? You have an understanding that even goes beyond words? Why is that? The author says the answer is simple, you have past lives.

       “You have met the person before and you know all about them already. Likewise there are some people that you’ve met before and they were your worst enemy. Therefore when you meet them in this life it’s only natural that you hate their guts from day one.

       “Like my boss at work, it’s not just because he’s my boss that I hate him. The man was an Inquisitionist and he was torturing me in a past life.”

      Flute Snoot laughed and said “So not only is he out to get you now but he’s been out to get you for thousands of years”.

      “Like the Erika Badu song where she meets this guy but she’s in a relationship already so she says See you Next Lifetime.” said Ebenezer.

        “Another thing, look at my situation Dutton. My brother Seal is an alcoholic and he treats me like dirt sometimes but I believe that experiencing that has made me a better person. Things that my brother may be mixed up in I have tried to avoid it and therefore I believe that has made me a better person. I am not saying I am a better person than my brother. I am saying that I may have taken a wrong path for myself if I did not have such an example to learn from.

         “ Now if I should reach to the Pearly Gates in a certain concept of the after life would it really be fair for me to go to Heaven? While my brother who is a good for nothing low-down dirty-skunk and was actually motivating me to go to Heaven ends up in Hell? Would that really be fair ? That could not be fair. So obviously even the low down dirty skunk must have a purpose.”

         Ebenezer said “Well even in the Bible Joseph’s brothers sold him into slavery but they turned around later and embraced him. They don’t have to continue on that path.”

      “But it happens in reality that they sometimes continue on that path. Get real Dutton, you cannot have stories where everyone is the good guy. You can only have a good guy if you have a bad guy. So I am saying to you that the good guy is not really such a good guy since he’s just reacting to the bad guy.”, Young Son, spoke forcefully, he actually felt energized by this rare conversation among old friends.

 It was deep, it was Reasonings.
