Mirror of Self-Acceptance

There are similarities and difference between being a geek about a science fiction show, and being a geek about metaphysics and reality creation. If you’re a geek about a sci-fi show, you’ll get the same weird looks from people who aren’t, and they’ll mostly just shrug and move on these days. This was probably a little more challenging in the early days of sci-fi, for instance, when many people didn’t even know what it was! But since it has become a known quantity, thanks to shows like The Big Bang Theory, it’s no longer such a threat – it’s easily set into its own box in the mind.

From my perspective right now, the difference is that if you tell people who aren’t into metaphysics that you believe that you are a multi-dimensional being and that you create your own reality, you’ll still get some weird looks, but there’s the added weight of being considered absolutely nuts as well.

Of course, as a metaphysical geek, I have to point out that I feel this way because I did not grow up in an environment that supported expanded ideas of the self, metaphysical realities, reality creation, or even things like talking about dreams, so I understand that there’s a belief there about “crossing the line” fully into crazy land from conventional mass reality. At least, that’s how I, apparently, decided to set things up for myself when I came into physical reality. I suppose I could have chosen parents that were already into this sort of thing, or even chosen an entire planet that accepted we are all spiritual beings creating our own realities in the physical. But I didn’t. So I acknowledge that not everyone has this type of challenge.

Since physical reality is a reflection of my own INNER landscape, the more I fully accept that I am a conscious creator, and become comfortable with it to whatever extent I do, the more that sense of acceptance is mirrored around me in my experience. This makes perfect sense if you take the sci-fi example from earlier – at first, perhaps in the 1950’s, it was a very odd thing to like and not well-known. But after a few generations, and more and more people accepting and liking it, it has become essentially mainstream now.

Perhaps metaphsyics and consciousness and reality creation are the new ‘weird’ now.

Another related thing I’ve had to deal with is the anger and frustration I’ve had about being told “this is how the REAL world works – not YOUR way”. It was told to me in the manner of trying to teach, of course, not to be mean, with constant ‘correction’. The anger and frustration of not being able to be all of who you really knew you were and having to try to live within the rules that your parents and society show you. It’s a good thing now to see this for what it is, and release the anger that had become my ‘vibe’ in this area, and making space for my real vibe – finally.

Being a Metaphysical Geek

I’ve always been a geek. And by that I mean that when I’m interested or intriqued or curious about something, or if I resonate with something, I dive into it and try to learn as much about it as possible, perhaps even experience as much as possible. I do not limit my geekiness to any specific topic as is usually associated with ‘geekdom’, like science fiction and fantasy, comic books, etc. – ‘geek’ is a state of mind, not a specific manifestation.

I’m a geek about metaphysics. I have great interest and curiosity about metaphysics, consciousness, reality creation, and similar areas, and I like applying analytical thinking to these concepts and experiences to help further my understanding. To be clear, this is way beyond the ‘what is true or not’ process of applying conventional thinking to experiences beyond the current mass belief system. To my thinking, the only result of that avenue is that it’s completely subjective and dynamic for each person, rendering the attempt itself moot, and raising even more, and hopefully better, questions as a result.

Questions always lead to more questions, and that’s especially obvious within the apparent boundlessness of consciousness and existence. There may be platforms of thought along the way where you’ll rest for a while in your understanding, but then you’ll ask more questions and start moving along again. If there are too many answers are presented, and not enough questions being asked, yup, start walking.

What do you know about who you are, how you think and why you think the things you do? How does what you see around you in physical reality corrolate with your expectations of it? What are emotions and how are they communicating with you? If you’ve ever had a dream where you felt completely awake and aware, did you end up dismissing it and going about your usual day or did you wonder how that *is*?

So. I don’t know yet what this website is or will be, but I’ve put some words together that I’m happy with for now. We shall see!
