Our Belief System: The Ultimate Operating System for the Human Experience
As a technologist and a psychic medium I have had the privilege of meeting a number of fascinating people in my life. Each person has always represented a life lesson (sometimes several lessons). Usually when I meet someone new they always ask us “What do you do for a living, Terry?” I used to reply with these types of answers: “I am computer programmer”, “I design software for computer systems”, or “I architect information systems for medium to large corporations giving them a way to grow their business and protect their vital information”. All those answers did was baffle people or chase eligible single women away from me. After all who really wants to spend their Saturday night listening to something they don’t understand and have very little interest in the subject?
My past experience showed me very few. I had to learn to ask myself why I answered that simple question like a machine. It would be easy to say insecurities, lack of experience, or other catch phrases that seemed grounded in conventional wisdom. The time came in my life journey of my “awakening”, learning to unplug myself from the world of illusion of technology and connect to the cosmic internet. This “awakening” answered the question. It also helped me to connect the dots between what I once viewed as unrelated topics: How we perceive and why. We are taught the internet has no beginning and no end like the Universe itself (I don’t agree with the conventional definition). But even the internet has its own operating system. So why wouldn’t the human soul? I know what you’re thinking; there he goes again with that techno-babble. Yes and No.
First you need to understand some techno-babble first. An operating system is simply a computer program like Windows or the Mac OS that lets you interact with all those microchips, circuit boards, and the other computer guts so it can do things like read email, see what the latest weather is in Humboldt (but sometimes opening a window in my living room is more accurate for that instead of using weather.com), or see what the latest drama is on DramaBook, (Face Book). The operating system allows the computer experience to become more relatable, almost soulful i.e. like a spiritual connection between you and the computer. With new devices exploding on to the market faster and faster it makes technology theorems like Moore’s Law obsolete. The millennial generation runs around tied to these devices as if it were a new arm or leg to them. It makes this technology explosion look like its growing (evolving) faster and faster. But how does this impact our soul’s growth?
Astrologically, speaking we are in the Age of Aquarius. Many astrologers have educated and raised my awareness that we are still in the dawn of the Age of Aquarius. One of the changes that come with this new age is Technology. It is a common site at Starbuck’s to see a 20 year old glued to his or her iPhone is more evidence of the dawn of Aquarius. The Space Shuttle upgraded for better space vehicles. The first trans-humanist (a type of cyborg) grown from DNA in a laboratory. If you find this unbelievable you may want to check out predictions for the 2020’s that will really bake your noodle!
What drives the soul’s evolution? What allows you to interact with the cosmic Internet? How do you allow yourself to upgrade your soul’s software? Some of us turn to religion. Others go with a more agnostic point of view while many others choose direct life experience. Several Authors have always cautioned me as the reader that most of us pick the difficult, long road to fulfill the goals we outline in our birth charts. Sometimes we can spend what seems like years or even several life times to update our operating system. Why is the soul so slow to learn it seems? Philosophers have tried for centuries to answer that question. Perhaps the answer used to be in the Mystery School Library in Alexandria, Egypt before it was destroyed “due to political reasons” a channeled guide once told me. That’s like suggesting Humboldt County on the front cover of Time Magazine as county of the Year for Pot and Satanism.
So what’s with the channel spirit being so vague? My guess is because its Operating System is way out of date! Many times our belief system whether it’s New Ageism, Christianity, Judaism, Islam, or what I’ll call generic spirituality can make our life lessons much, much harder than they need to be. Being hooked to a piece of technology (figuratively or literally) like a smart phone or tablet constantly slows the updating (learning or evolutionary process) down. We have to be aware how technology creates an artificial awareness in an artificial Universe called the Internet. Awareness works for many of us. It works extremely well especially if you are a psychic, medium, sensitive, spiritual healer or however you choose to share your gift with the world. It can be easy to lose Awareness while we communicate with this artificial universe. When we lose awareness, we slow down the learning or soul’s evolutionary journey.
On this journey our spiritual Operating System is our belief system. The Universe, like Microsoft and Apple, offers free updates constantly. Software updates are not always about fixing a bug or something that is broken. Sometimes a better program comes out. Sometimes another program gets replaced. Could we argue as we go from life to life that we are slowly receiving slow Universal updates? A great book to read “Future Life Design” by J.L. Mee will give a mixed Western Science and Metaphysical outlook to designing your next life or 20th life from “now”. This course work was designed for Seniors. Even though I’m not a senior, I found Mee’s work to be interest and informative to our current and our future life design.
To summarize, our belief system part of spiritual operating system. An operating system is computer program like Windows or the Mac OS that lets people tell a computer to do things for them like read emails, browse the internet, or use Drama Book (Face Book). When we stop to consider the impact technology has on everyone we can see the impact on the soul’s journey especially on the millennial generation. If we are not aware of our technology usage it will impact on our soul’s journey. We live in an increasingly changing world where there are booby traps we don’t think exist until they snag us. As metaphysical practitioners and beings, we need to carefully consider how the technology around us and what we use affects our true purpose of being here in the now. With there being no “past” or “future” and only the now, the reader needs to consider are you updating your operating system that’s best for your current journey?
