Did you ever watch the movie Matrix Reloaded? I watched it twice. But I did not get the meaning both times. Lately, it came up on television again. Next to talking to my son, him explaining me some things around our world history (he is amazing in that), checking my phone for some comments, and other things around, I was not very focused on the movie… until Neo met the oracle.
I started to get glued to the movie when he was led to the oracle, passing one world and emerging in a different world in order to meet that oracle. On their way, they were talking about all beings as programs, not as real existences. Then Neo met the oracle. After some conversation about choices, she offered him a candy and a little confused he asked: “Do I even have a choice?” She answered: “You already made your choice. You have come here to understand the choices you already made.”
Wow! I did not continue watching the movie. My mind started spinning. That statement blew me away. I began to link to what I believed in and questions came up like if we already made our choices, then what about our free will? But pretty quickly all puzzle pieces fell into place.
“The program” is our life plan. It is the manuscript we chose for this lifetime. It contains how we look like, how our bodies are created, our limitations, our skills, our dreams, our personalities. All is put together in order to make us walk one certain path which we did choose as an agreement for this incarnation. And yes, it is a program we are running. Since your real existence is spirit, what we see is part of the program which expires one day, but spirit doesn’t.
I recently won a numerology reading on Hugh’s blog by the fantastic Beverley A. Young. I got her reading and I was blown away. I already knew about numerology but I was totally amazed how exact she could describe my being, my challenges, my dreams, my path… really amazing. While reading it again, I thought again of “The Program”. It makes complete sense that the numbers and dates in our lives are codes written for our life’s program. When certain dates or data are reached things happen. Some people (other programs) are having access to your program. You can grant them access or even deny them. You can block them actually with your thoughts (settings). I think the only thing you cannot do, is emptying the trash.
Now I come to that crucial subject: our choices and our free will. Is that opposing each other? No, not at all! It immediately was clear to me that this is about the difference and at the same time about the cooperation of Fate and Destiny. I wrote about it in my post Reincarnation and Karma.
FATE is the choices we already made about the things we want to experience within this lifetime. Or it is what leads to reach those experiences. We don’t have a choice about them anymore. It makes the frame around our lives which keeps us on track. It is the inevitable happenings, encounters, developments we are passing. And yes, we wanted that before we incarnated. We saw this all from a much higher perspective before we came into this body. That is why we don’t understand so often why things happen to us or why we have to go through changes and challenges. That is what the oracle in the movie said about what we want to learn here: Understanding the choices (fate) we made.
We think life just happens but actually it only delivers what we ordered. In our lives, we go from one choice to another and learn to understand them. At last is about the journey not about the destination. The journey is what we can still choose. It is our decision how we walk from one choice to the other and the more we understand the smoother the journey will be. We might not understand all the choices immediately. But knowing about fate and the journey makes us accept that we don’t understand them right away and that there is an insight at the end. The journey will lead us there.
We stop refusing to move towards our choices. We stop cursing them. We start taking responsibility. This all makes the ride not only smoother but also brighter. We see more and want to see more. We get aligned with our program and go with it. And for sure, the path will be easier and less painful because we are not standing ourselves in the way anymore. The journey we walk and which we can choose freely is our DESTINY.
We all made choices, great choices. Choices for ourselves but also for others and all the choices are linked and perfectly programmed to show up at the perfect time. It confirms me again that there are no coincidences in this perfectly organized universe. And it confirms me that we mustn’t judge. We all have our programs and one program is never fully able to understand another program. But we can understand that it is that way and accept that fact. No program is more or less right or wrong. They all have their authorization and are needed to keep the system complete and working. And all the programs are coming from and returning to the same source.
Of course, there is a lot more about the movie Matrix Reloaded. I just wanted to point out that one subject. We have come here to understand the choices we already made. This sentence simply says it all. It totally makes sense to me and confirms what I believed about it and what I already wrote in my book and in my posts.
