Programming/filters/ego
    #2400017 - 03/03/04 09:04 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Everyday when I wake, for a few seconds, usually, I am pure.  I am free from the programing and filters of my mind that I am rarely consciously aware of.  I believe this is me, my true self.  It cannot be quantified and has no negative/positive qualities.

As we go through life we build up associations.  I see an ornament on the side and feel the many memories, which, it brings.  My mother talks and I expect her to be complaining.  She does not always complain.  She spends roughly 40% of our shared conversation moaning.  Although,  I may have even caused her to complain, at times, through my very expectation.

I have spent 21 years (so far) creating "brain filters".  These filters are constantly active.  They can respond for me or be overiden if desired.  I notice most people never question their filters, they accept the programing for a true reality.  This reality is very sure of itself.  It has a way of quantifing every peice of information into something understandable, something more acceptable to that personal reality.  The reality also protects itself by blocking out/altering anything external that is analyising or challenging the reality.

So, I have created my own reality, something that fits comfortably for me.  But hang on, I CREATED MY REALITY, this is not right.  Surely there is a correct reality, mine must be the correct reality, I am not experiencing anybody elses reality.

What am I getting at?  Who is really experiencing the now?  I am having trouble recognising my own ego.  This program is so easy to slip back into, should I slip back?  It seems everyone else has.

Sorry its too late & i'm too stoned to make this more legible...

I think the best way to get rid of filters would be to remove your frontal lobes. Plus you would have a neat scar on your forehead!!!

I wish i could be more aware of my filters and override them more often, so that I would act more like my true self.

But It's always getting better day by day  :tongue2:

I think in order to function in our society.. (to survive) you need the filters, otherwise your brain will over load and you'll find a bullet through your skull as the only means of dampening the depression that is sure to over come your mind.

It's true. We create our own reality.

Kinda freaky, isn't it? I notice a lot of people around me do this.. it's as if they're unaware of their own "filters".

I, personally, am aware of them and try to stay aware of them in all situations. This can be really hard at times, and I notice that if I haven't had any kind of "mental cleansing" in a long time, it's MUCH harder.

Try a mushroom trip, does the trick for me. :P

The way our world is geared. The way we teach each other to be "normal" is to copy society. The media, consumerism, the lifestyle is all designed to breed this mentality. Its a mad world.

Another trippy thought:
We all seak entertainment. We may even become frustrated if the entertainment does not arrive. Strange. You have nothing. You decide to get something. If you can't get it then you feel worse than before you decided to do anything!

I made this post 1514 days ago. Thats about 4 years.

Today I decided to revive it for a new lease of life. To see what the shroomerites of today think.

I feel the same way when I wake up and before I go to sleep and I love it. :smile:

where is the best program? do you know where to find it? Each of us is blessed with a temple .

The masses walk around with temples that are dirty, cluttered, and just plain static.

We trip to reorganize and clean our temples in order to find the gems that are sometimes hidden.

I wake up today ready to find more of the hidden bonuses that have yet to be dis-covered and opened. it is a program of action which ends in total freedom. freedom through sobriety.
