Do you ever feel like a muppet? You’re very real to yourself and everyone around you, but you’re still attached to… strings! You’re still not you.
What does that mean?
It means you’re not the controller of your charming muppet self. You’ve been riding the backseat for as long as you can remember based on the most appropriate ways to react to life’s events. Yet, the backseat personality that you are so used to playing is your default. That is all you know!
Time to tune into the truth: You are whomever you train yourself to be. You are reinforced to train yourself based on your programmers.
As children we are all raised based on the rearing of our guardians. We ask questions to an extent, but mostly follow orders. They are our leaders after all! For a long time we believe that we should be exactly what our environment asks of us, in order to fit in with everyone else, and get the attainable future. The problem now is, we are so focused on the future and what we will be then, that we forget we are still in default-mode!
Your rearing environment is your first programmer.
Your habitual responses are your second, and more constant ones.
Some of us rebels become everything that our parents did not plan. From that point on we begin a new cycle in our mind, following a persona that directly opposes our upbringing. The programmers of your childhood are silent for the time being. Once you are ready to find peace with your past, they shall return. Until then, you have entertained a new set of programmers. They will egg you on until you see the end of that particular rebellion. A lot of people go through this stage. We recognize them as our angry teenagers, spiritual explorers, promiscuous individuals, and the list goes on. How spicy!
Then life knocks on your door again. If you are a winner of maturation, you are ready for another internal revolutionary stage!
If you are not so comfortable with change in your life, you are overrun by your programmers.
Your feelings are based on the responses of your emotional patterns. You learn these patterns from those around you (eg. your friends, your family, and your emotionally intense connections). You internalize the most stimulating patterns based on experiences. You are then tuned into the thoughts of the many possible outcomes of life. Yet, you focus on the most emotionally reactive thoughts in your mind, let’s say “for survival sake”, even if they are unhealthy thoughts, and far from possible. Yet, you acknowledge that those are YOUR THOUGHTS, YOUR FEELINGS, AND YOUR PERSONALITY.
Why are you thinking these thoughts?
You have a relationship with your programmers. You are the radio waves picking up on most familiar networks. Your thoughts are not even your thoughts most of the time. You’re playing backseat again in your mind, and now you don’t know who you are!
The secret is, that you have been mentally/emotionally conditioned since the day that you landed on this plane.
You were taught many things in life, including how to follow what you want. But you were not told that you can be anything by allowing yourself to be the change.
The world around us needs a lot of change.
As of late, it appears as if we have less and less control over our own lives. We have become control freaks for everything around us so that we don’t get sucked in! Yet, how are you controlling yourself throughout it all?
The real change starts within. Be the programmer! Be the muppeteer! You are living YOUR LIFE in YOUR BODY. That’s a lot of power!
Being the change you want is not as easy as turning on a switch, unless you’re a pretty good actor. It requires you to let go of those “closet homies” that overstayed their welcome in your mind. It’s okay. Look at it square in the face, and know that you are not that. It’s time to tune into a different program.
You will have to practice how you want to speak to yourself and others, how you want to act…everywhere, and most importantly what YOU want to think about.
I make videos to influence you to hop out of the backseat. Start thinking about things that used to scare you in the past. Why did it terrify you? How much control will you allow it to have over you now?
You are not your programmers. You are evolving. You ARE the Programmer.
