Human Programming

I know I said i would touch or had an idea of a bunch of ideas that I would blog about in due time, but that hasn’t happened and apologies are in order. This is due to the fact that college has been at its height and this programming has been weary.

This is also why I wanted to post on Human Programming. I’m currently reading from a Jesuit author who went by the name of Anthony de Mello. Wonderful, wonderful being (just as you the reader are) who taught awareness. Awakened and yet still had hints of his individual nature (it is not the fact that you lose the individual nature but rather are un affected by its programming)

A recent book that I’ve been reading of his anyway is called The Way To Love, and it teaches the viewer to pay attention to the programming that has taken presidence, and that this programming has caused human beings to react negatively towards outcomes that are outside of the the reality that the programming has built. This quote then popped into my head upon contemplation:

“The programming is like a child throwing a tantrum in a toy store to get what he/she wants.”

We have all seen this happen at some point in our life whether it was us throwing the tantrum (and we do throw them even now, why else do you think we suffer?) or literally seeing a child throw a tantrum.

Human programming works the same way, as soon as circumstances do not work out to coincide with what the conceptual bodies beliefs are it reacts by sending negative emotions into the atmosphere. This is not a natural occurrence but rather a message to You that you are not in touch with reality. What can you do about this? DO nothing, see it for what it is, watch it, be aware that it exists, give your attention to it, but do not react or refuse to react. See the programming for what it is, only a program, it is not you and it will be as if this darkness never existed.

Darkness cannot possibly exist in the presence of light… Take from this what you can, live with the quote, and maybe something may come to light. I just thought I would expound that.

I am one who sees a potential lesson in every experience in life. Life is who we are and life is our ultimate guru. I seek to bring us together through our own shared experiences. And hope to not only learn deeply who I am but to learn deeply who others are by dropping my ideas from moment to moment about you.
