I am in a trance… a hypnotized person who is unaware that since birth I have believed paradigms preconceived by others. This happens in every sphere, including the spiritual sphere… actually, especially in the spiritual one. Haven’t I always bowed, without asking too many questions, to the following deeply false and mocking paradigms?
It’s such a subtle and insidious propaganda that it takes on hypnotic connotations. A truly unconscious indoctrination that completely bypasses my reason and my critical faculties… ultimately, the intelligence given to me by my heavenly Father. A true hypnotic propaganda that bombards me from my first day of life through the infinite prison guards that I encounter during the course of my life in the Matrix.
I discover with immense sadness that most of the citizens of the Matrix are not yet ready to be disconnected from this ATM of false certainties and preconceived reassurance. Many of them are so addicted to and desperately dependent on the Matrix and its rebellious spirit that they are ready to fight to defend it.
Am I ready to make a U-turn, performing what seems to my senses like a leap in the dark? But isn’t that what faith is, a leap in the dark… in other words madness (see 1 Corinthians 2:14), like Peter walking on the water with Jesus? Yes, am I ready to walk on water?
I live in a prison without bars, of which I finally know, at least mentally, the way out. But really going along the path barefaced is a whole different matter!
