Pt 2. The Truman Show: A Letter to the Distracted traveler

If you have watched the film The Truman Show you will have observed that all the actors in the life of Truman observed a specific unwavering routine. A certain driver in a car would pass, he would greet the same neighbours at the same time every day. Every eventuality in every day of his life would occur on time. This dance would transpire until the penny dropped in Truman’s mind that his life had been meticulously orchestrated. It was too perfect.

Have you realised dear reader, that you are Truman and your life is not yours?

Every night through the centuries desert dwellers have seen through the light of the stars. Century after century. They have passed now, but the stars continue to loyally observe their purpose. For you; and your children; and your children’s children. If you wake up at the crack of dawn the chorus of the birds begin, day in day out. At sunset the birds flock together and migrate only to repeat the sequence of events the following morning. They do not waver. Again the birds submit to and observe their purpose.

The earth has remained turning for millennia day in day out, darkness to light, light to darkness and repeat. Accommodating your sleep. Accommodating your body clock. Your heart beats without fail and the body grows in stages: held upright while most of us don’t even know the names of the structures and nerves that allow for this to occur. There is power in naming. We have no power because we cannot even name the substances that comprise and sustain us. The body is not ours therefore.

Every 150 years the earth’s population is renewed like wheat in a harvest without delay or question. The planets are kept in loyal orbit and the seasons elapse month after month. Year after year. The human is suspended in the womb and birthed into the world: there is only one way in. And similarly the human must one day leave the earth: there is only one way out. These doorways, entries and exists are a fact of your time here. Year in year out everyone of us passes through both doors. The seed sprouts; the plant one day wilts. Day in day out. The routine is concrete and unwavering. Like the routine Truman observes. Too perfect.

These are certainties that we simultaneously know and don’t know. The mind knows it but you have not thought on it via your innermost core / pure intellect (lubb). These certainties occur without disruption whether or not you realise what is happening.

Traveller, these certainties elapse in your life and you wade through existence absentmindedly immersed in one form of entertainment only to seek out and latch onto another. You are Truman and the penny has not yet dropped. And most will never hear the penny clattering to the ground. Think to yourself as Truman did “what is really happening here?” then crack the code and allow your eyes to pierce through a tapestry of shadows.

The universe exists because you do. It is there to accommodate you. It is at your service because it was created to sustain you for a brief moment of Divine observation before you are sorted and allocated to your actual life.

Today wake up, take action and see into the world through the eyes of your heart….

Peace and Blessings, A Soulscape
