How one four letter word may be THE Key to unlocking your way out of the Matrix of Reality

In a world locked down by rules, regs, and agendas that some say must go according to plan, one might think there’s no way out of what has been dubbed “The Prison Planet.”

The Matrix was a movie that depicted a frightening scenario of the robotic masses and their “handlers” (The Agents) determined to keep tabs on and prevent the public from a life of freedom. The character portrayed as “Neo,” once taking the red pill did discover how deep the rabbit hole goes, but he also discovered an inner sanctum; a power woken up out of dormancy, that on some level we all possess.

The themes from this film resonated with so many about the constructed nature of physical reality, and how one can escape the proverbial Matrix. But there’s another movie that exquisitely captures the idea of a planned or constructed reality.  However in the end, it offers quite a different angle on how one can dissolve what appears to be an inescapable terrain of rules and authority.

What’s the angle?

Quite simply – LOVE!

Spoiler Alert

If you haven’t seen The Adjustment Bureau, the following narrative may just give the entire premise away. However, the movie is well worth seeing, I’d urge you to have a look for yourself and you’ll see why the following is so powerful.

The character of Harry Mitchell says:

Most people live life on the path we set for them, too afraid to explore any other. But once in a while people like you come along who knock down all the obstacles we put in your way. People who realize freewill is a gift that you’ll never know how to use until you fight for it. I think that’s the chairman’s real plan. That maybe one day, we won’t write the plan, you will.

But what does this have to do with love, you might ask?

This is what we’ll discuss in this episode of Conscious Commentary.

      Thanks for reaching out. Your question is very complex and I’m afraid doesn’t have an easy answer. What I will say is that what we refer to as “The Matrix” though it is believed to be what our reality is made up of is also very elusive and unclear as to what extent it exists…particularly in what we call the “afterlife.” Our animal companions are not only unconditionally loving but very intuitive. I have a feeling that your beloved pet soulmate knows exactly what to do to continue to live an authentic life. Perhaps the Matrix does not apply to her at all. Many questions here, but trust that she is in good hands and continue to send her your love and support. I’m sure she will know she’s receiving it from you! All the best, -AB
