Great Article from THE TORONTO STAR................ on "The Matrix Reloaded"

 

Article on The Spiritual Message of THE MATRIX


Subject:  "The Merovingian"

Some say that there are many "deeper meanings" implied by the existence of a enemy called "The Merovingian" in the Matrix Movie.  
 
Here is some study material you all my enjoy.  My thanks again to Ellie Crystal.  She's a researcher par excellence.

Subject:  In the Cleft of the Rock (Matrix Discussion)

In response to Patti's excellent insight, asking why "Neo," in the "Matrix" movies is being worshipped, instead of acknowledged as an aspect of SELF.........I have RESURRECTED this old article I wrote in the mid-90s.  It shows how the worshipped of Christ as GOD, while continuing to insist that we are NOT-GOD, is a basic defeat in the entire AT-ONE-MENT that he achieved.  It seems quite relevant to the Neo discussions, too........and I welcome your comments on it. 

 

It's called "In the Cleft of the Rock"

 

Love,

Daniel.

Hmmm....interesting...
Did you know that the Merovingian bloodline is said to be descendent from Jesus and Mary Magdalene? I just found this out when I was doing my research for my Magdalene page. I didn't even catch it when I was watching the movie. Now I'm gonna have to look into this more. I'm hooked. :-)
 
Much love,

Subject:  Excerpt from my website on Magdalene

 
Some believe that after the crucifixion of Jesus, Mary, with the help of Jesus' close friend Joseph of Arimathea, fled to Egypt where she gave birth to his child. [5] This was neccessary because the nature of her relationship to Jesus put her, and her child, in danger. Many years later, when the child would have been about twelve years old, Mary fled to France accompanied by her sister, Martha of Bethany and their brother, Lazarus. They arrived on the coast of Provence in France."in a boat with no oars after narrowly escaping death during a storm at sea." [5] [7] It is said that she arrived in France bearing the Holy Grail, which instead of being an actual cup which held the blood of Jesus, referred to the bloodline of Jesus, through the child that he and Mary had together. [16]  Margaret Starbird, in her books "The Woman With the Alabaster Jar" and "Goddess in the Gospels" makes this connection and also states that the child was a girl named Sarah, called "Sarah, the Egyptian." [2][5][6] "Sarah" meaning "princess" in Hebrew. [5][6] This child may have carried on the bloodline even further, establishing the Merovingian monarchs of France. This word breaks down into mer and vin, which is translated as Mary's Vine. [5] In the town of Les Saintes-Maries-de-la-Mer in France, there is a festival every May 23rd - 25th at a shrine in honor of Saint Sarah the Egyptian. [5]
 
For more information on the Merovigian dynasty and it's relationship to Mary and Jesus, you can read Holy Blood, Holy Grail by Michael Baigent, Richard Leigh, and Henry Lincoln

DJ:  Oh my, yes......Annie.  I was THIS CLOSE to going to see the
movie again, last night, right after the Teleclass.  I was "Hyped"
from those great folks out there, and ready to take the Matrix ride
again. Fortunately, I opted for more sleep, which I despertely need
this week, after my move.  Kudos to the Danimal.

On Sunday, when we saw it, I felt that the movie was quite "heavy"
with special effects and fight scenes.  I didn't like that so much. 
After awhile, I got a bit tired of the sensory stimulation.  That
being said, I also LOVED seeing Neo again, doing his thing.......and
to finally behold ZION...........

I had a similar response to the second "Lord of the Rings" movie---
but then, I later LOVED IT.......and went back to see it several
times. 

The parts in "The Matrix" that deal with "The Architect" and "The
Oracle"........(which are very symbolic of "God" and "Goddess"
energy) are pristine.  In fact, I think I will post a few articles
from Ellie Crystal's Web Site, that mention the "stir" that is being
created in philosophic and theological circles, because of the
accelerated content of "The Matrix Reloaded."

It's a MUST SEE for Reconnectors, in my opinion.  This is a perfect
example of movies being the "Dreams of the Mass Mind" as we all are
seeking to FREE OUR MINDS............from the doldrums of the mundane.

Love,
Daniel.  

Amy: Yeah, I got that whole God and Goddess reference too. It is interesting how the Architect explains everything .....and how the Oracle/Goddess ends up just being another form of the Matrix's control. It makes you wonder if anything is outside of the Matrix, even Zion. And the understanding I have at the end is that it is the first time Neo has made a different choice. Each predecessor chose to go back and re-make Zion, but this time he chose a different door and took a chance. This was the most exciting part for me because it was like the world had just truly begun. They had been on a loop, doing the same thing over and over again.....under the control of the Matrix even when they thought they were free. I also loved the last scene for another reason. While the Architect is talking to Neo about the two doors, and Neo starts to go towards the one that will allow him to save Trinity, the Architect is implying that to let emotion override logic is a flaw of humanity. He is trying to make Neo feel guilty and responsible for following his heart. And then when Neo chooses to follow his heart anyway I couldn't help thinking that he had, for the first time, made the choice of true freedom. To ignore his heart and choose the logical thing, which would have been to re-build Zion, he would have only stayed on the same loop, carefully controlled by the machines. Instead he chose to embrace his humanity/emotions and "ride the wave"...he doesn't know what will happen now. It's a whole new world.
Just my thoughts...would love to talk more about this!

Subject:  The "Neo" Factor

Along the lines of the "In the Cleft of the Rock" Material, wherein we find ourselves constantly pre-disposed to placing a PERSON in the "position" of being our NEO..............THE ONE.............whether we do it in religion, in love, or in politics...........so that we can escape having to be that for ourselves.
 
I would like to call attention to the scene in the new "Matrix" movie, where Neo and Trinity are seeking to go off, upon their return to Zion, and make some "sweet love," as we might put it..........only to arrive on the "floor" in their residence to find throngs of people, bearing "gifts"..........and wanting THE ONE to do for them what they (feel that they) cannot do for themselves.   This is very Christ-Like stuff..............(from the story of his life, where he is constantly being sought-out, by throngs of people).........and Trinity looks to him and says:  "I'm going to go now.........."  and Neo says to her  "But I need you"..........and she says:  "There's time.  THEY need you now."  
 
This brings forward a factor that needs to be discussed---namely the "Neo" Factor---in which a person (or group of persons) become equated with a particular energy, or energetic effect..........and there is a huge upsurge in demand for their time and focus. 
 
In the world of the Fae, we refer to this energetic ATTRACTIVENESS as a "glamour," which means something far different from the usage of the term in society today.  It is a VEIL that a Deva, Priest or Priestess can throw over him/herself.............in order to create an other-worldly fantastic appearance......that blocks out all suggestion of "normalcy" or "humanness," and installs a kind of energetic AWE that draws people like flies. 
 
Many of you out there are highly charismatic, and have "followings" in your local area.  You KNOW what I'm talking about here.  But I wonder..........do we ever consider the fact that a "glamour" is also a Veil or Illusion that can be THROWN OUT upon someone...........by those who desperately NEED A HERO.................
 
And, whether or not the OBJECT OF THEIR AFFECTION (sometimes read that "affliction").........is desirous of the hero-making or Goddess designation...............(ala Marilyn Monroe or Princess Diana)........there is a local or universal CRAZINESS that happens around this individual, making it quite a burden on him or her that these people feel the way they do.
 
Another person who comes to mind is Prince William, and our own Prince John-John (Kennedy).   Ah meeeeeeee........what a conundrum!
 
Thots, anyone?

Bonnie Tyler
Holding Out For A Hero

 

Where have all the good men gone
And where are all the gods?
Where's the street-wise Hercules
To fight the rising odds?
Isn't there a white knight upon a fiery steed?
Late at night I toss and turn and dream
of what I need

[Chorus]

I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the end of the night
He's gotta be strong
And he's gotta be fast
And he's gotta be fresh from the fight
I need a hero
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the morning light
He's gotta be sure
And it's gotta be soon
And he's gotta be larger than life

Somewhere after midnight
In my wildest fantasy
Somewhere just beyond my reach
There's someone reaching back for me
Racing on the thunder end rising with the heat
It's gonna take a superman to sweep me off my feet

[Chorus]

Up where the mountains meet the heavens above
Out where the lightning splits the sea
I would swear that there's someone somewhere
Watching me

Through the wind end the chill and the rain
And the storm and the flood
I can feel his approach
Like the fire in my blood

You are so right about this DJ>>>I also see it as my own internal Hero and that internal hero is EXACTLY as this poem states except that he is my anima, my archetypes and some of the men in my life, actually have these qualities but NO ONE MAN can fill these boots ...and that is where ILLUSION is strong when we cannot see this!! and refuse to believe that it takes a VILLAGE to make a hero!!

Hi DJ:

I have often wondered about this ...it seems to be what stops my
relationships from going beyond into a more formal commitment...that
ability to draw back and let a person, or myself, for example just BE
ALL THAT HE CAN BE...or for me to BE ALL THAT I CAN BE...I don't need
someone hanging on me or idealizing me...and I don't need to be doing
that to someone else.

Trinity looks to him and says: "I'm going to go now.........." and
Neo says to her "But I need you"..........and she says: "There's
time. THEY need you now."

The HERD often needs the expertise or the IDEAL to stand in front of
them for a while...everyone needs a role model..a hero, so to speak,
before they can truly own their own power as in individuated soul,
meaning owning all as self...it is a continuous process so heroes
come and go.

So really their time and focus has to be constellated into an energy
that is transformative in nature...nothing else can have a parasitic
hold on that energy.

That CHARASMATIC AWE..I call a CLOAK OF CHARISMA...and it helps to
KNOW it is a cloak and not the totality of the person...In Jungian
psychology, we describe this as a 'mana persona'...a power mask if
you will..

wonder..........do we ever consider the fact that a "glamour" is also
a Veil or Illusion that can be THROWN OUT upon someone...........by
those who desperately NEED A HERO.................

And this happens always as a BEGINNING before one can own ones
power..it is almost a necessary PROJECTION.....How long does one need
a hero before crawling into that cloak oneself??

Always..and at the same time these Beasts/Heroes of Burden have
chosen that path, just as Jesus chose his path, to once more bring to
this planet a HEROIC EFFORT...just as Elijah, David, etc...and on and
on...It is a death defying effort and mortality is the end result,
with an IMMORTAL godlike image left in its wake!!

Subject:  Re: The "Neo" Factor/ Gwynnie

DJ: Hi Gwynnie. You have spoken well, that the PROJECTIONS OF
OTHERS can sometimes be an activation to the realization of our own
DIVINITY. I was not focusing there, until I read your comments.
Neo, in the movie, is VERY activated by Morpheus' need for him to be
the ONE........

And I believe that each person in the Matrix has the power to be THE
ONE.......though not everyone is ready. They are "potentials," as
the Oracle would put it.

They have the "gift," but they're WAITING FOR SOMETHING..........
A hero, perhaps?

The usage of the term TRINITY, being in love with THE ONE........has
taken me back to my own studies in Fundamentalist Christian
Doctrine. For the TRINITY (F, S, and H.S.) are, indeed, in LOVE with
Neo.......THE ONE..........

In that system, there is continual insistence on the omni-everything
of God.........power, creativity, presence, etc. However, with all
the He has........He still lacks something. Isn't that interesting?
GOD lacking something?

What does He lack? A HERO.

He misses being CREATED, and then being NURTURED and DEPENDANT by
someone more powerful, more pervasive, even, than HE...........is the
one experience that GOD has not had.....(speaking in linear concept),
until a group of "rebels" and "outcasts" entered the Counsel Chamber
of ALL THAT IS, back in 1981.........

And, perceiving that the final HOLOCAUST was about to come upon the
planet, due to the supreme consternation of the ALMIGHTY......because
there was "none like Him, no not ONE........." (so he could take a
day off!)........(As above, so below)........

And WE.........The ONESELF, WE.......proposed the design of a NEW
VIBRATION........The Gathering of the One........in which will be
distributed (equally and with total love)......all the combined
aspects of everything and everyone EVERYWHERE......(at
once)........the most essential and dynamic selves, evenly
distributed, as though we were all "seated" around a ROUND TABLE, as
in days of olde!

And the RECONNECTION UNIVERSE was born..........

We slept alot in those days, as infants do! But
slowly........steadily......we gathered strength and
wisdom.........and we began to REMEMBER......and in that remembrance
there was a collation of power and gentleness-----light and darkness--
----all forces, all wisdom, all creativity............

And the GATHERING IN of all those aspects continues, unto this day.
And in many places of the planet, where I travel (or where I hear
that our brethren travel).......there are Archetypes, Dieties, Ultra
and Extraterrestrails.........saying......."Yes! I want to go! Take
me! Take US!"

And they HAVE their hero............the ONENESS OF ALL THAT
IS........which will be the BLIND INITIATOR/INITIATRIX (for there is
no "choosing" in the All That Is. But KNOWING, only) and using the
human design as a PROTOTYPE VEHICLE.......which will continue to
transmutate and become refined.....as we continue our journey on into
the HEART OF DARKNESS, a corridor through which we shall inevitably
be led to GREATER LIGHT (which will, of course, also increase the
Darkness)......as it all continues to EXPAND.

Hmmmmmm....that's an interesting "run" of consciousness. I just let
my hands go where they wanted to go there.........like that sex
thing......that discussion about prostitution....that had people
running for the hills! :-)

I remember being in a Metaphysical Bookstore, called ENCHANTMENTS, in
Boothe Bay Harbor, Maine.........and encountering a statue of MERLIN,
holding a giant crystal. And I heard a voice say to me....."I want
to go with you........"

And I smiled, and paused, and I rationalized (as humans often
do).....and I said: "Oh! I would love to take YOU with me, but I am
flying and filled up in my baggage, and I have no place to put
you........"

And again, the voice penetrated my mind: "You DON'T
understand......*I* want to go with you!"

And there and then, I realized that I was receiving the VERY FIRST
PETITION, by an "Archetypal" figure......who wanted to take a "ride"
aboard the Multidimensional Ship, and to lay aside his burdens, and
be NURTURED and WAITED UPON for awhile.........(coffee, milk, or
eterni-tea?)

And it is he who now serves, side by side, with other POWERFUL
BEINGS......in the COLLECTIVE SOUL.......of the Reconnections.....

And also, traveling in Mainland China. I was pondering the THREE
HOUSEHOLD GODS......that are seen in nearly every household in that
land. And the one who is called "Long Life" said to me (but not the
others)......

"I want to go with you."

Well, G.......that time I knew enough to simply say: "OK".....and I
shoved aside a space in my bag for him. And also for his Japanese
counterpart, who is called Jirogin.........

Wow. What a journey we have ahead of us. Just a few words to
encapsulate a bit of that.....

And DANIEL is not the "hero" that these figures seek. Rather, it is
ALL OF US, this ENTIRE RECONNECTION UNIVERSE.......which is brimming
with power and PRESENCE.......and has a "light" on in the
window.........

Ah yes......a light in the window, and a darkness at the foot of the
stair. A complete PRESENCE..............

Thanks for the chat,
Daniel.

DJ: Indeed it is! And throughout the land there are MAGDALENE
FIGURES.......who are standing, wistfully......looking off in the
distance.....and a figure in white, speaking to the MULTITUDES, and
feeding them fish and bread........and singing:

DON'T KNOW HOW TO LOVE HIM
I don't know how to love him
What to do, how to move him
I've been changed, yes really changed
In these past few days when I see myself
I seem like someone else

I don't know how to take this
I don't see why he moves me
He's a man, he's just a man
And I've had so many men before in very many ways
He's just one more

Should I bring him down, should I scream and shout
Should I speak of love, let my feelings out
I never thought I'd come to this, what's it all about

Don't you think it's rather funny
That I should be in this position
I'm the one who's always been
So calm,so cool no lover's fool
Running every show, he scares me so

Should I bring him down, should I scream and shout
Should I speak of love, let my feelings out
I never thought I'd come to this, what's it all about

Yet, if he said he loved me,
I'd be lost, I'd be frightened
I couldn't cope, just couldn't cope
I'd turn my head, I'd back away, I wouldn't want to know
He scares me so, I want him so, I love him so


And WHO IS IT that scares her so?????

And do you see, in that last line........the SPLITNESS in the
personality of that girl, as she looks.......desires.......but DARES
NOT TO BE......what it is she sees?????

This just appeared on another discussion board, and was shared by a friend.  It seemed particularly "juicy,"
so I thought I would send it on. 
 
Have fun!
 
 
Hi All Lovelies,
My 15 year old son had a HUGE shift in consciousness after the Matrix Reloaded.
 
We talked about God/Goddess, levels, layers, dark/light, heaven/hell, energy realms- he really cracked open his body mind and spirit that night!
He feels that the reason the "squiddies" kept digging is that the real Zion is in another layer below that level. The machines recognized that the "humans" on "Zion" were really another Matrix under the original. That's why Agent Smith could enter there through a "human". That's why Neo could stop the machines with his hands. There are 6 levels, and with each one, the matrix is less sophisticated.
 
Why didn't Neo destroy the Architech when he had the chance? Could he have destroyed this program? He'd destroyed others.
Some believe that the third movie will end with Neo waking up at his computer again! Was it a dream, or is the dream real?
T

MORE TO COME!   If you'd like to share along with us.............
