The Mystic’s Fractured Mind and Identity

The fact that you are reading this means that you are an awakened individual. You can see more than other people can see. Not only that, but you are keen and active in improving your life and the life of our societies.

Many people in our position have gone through life separating out our interests in topics that are considered “fringe” or “too spiritual” from our daily jobs and life. We have become experts at fracturing our minds and identities.  We have the ‘work me’ the ‘family me’ the ‘woo me’ the ‘real me’, and many other ‘me’.

This article should be an essay, really, as this topic is very large. Because the writing format is short, I want to concentrate on one of the ways in which we often fracture our minds and identities as we move through life. We will have expanded discussions around it and share more examples on our podcast “Driving to the Rez”, particularly in the second half with our panel of experts. The second part of our podcast is how we thank our sponsors and patrons and you can find it in the sponsor section here.

Anyway, back to our exploration of Mind and Identity Fracturing. As is traditional with my people, I will share the ways in which we do this with a story:

A Mystic in the Computer Code

Most people are familiar with what computer code looks like. It appears in movies a lot and it looks like dozens of numbered lines on a screen. Each line is a command that moves electricity this way and that. It turns things on and it turns things off. 

For example, when you click a button on your device’s screen, it sends you somewhere. That button was created with code, and it “listens” for the code that tells it it was pressed, then sends you to where it is coded to send you.

We are also very familiar with what “coders” look like. The “geek” at school, or in movies the attractive and cool rebellious hacker. The reality is that most coders are regular people you see at the supermarket buying food for their families. They don’t look any differently. Having been in the coding business for some years, I had the opportunity to work directly with coders. On the whole, they were regular Joes and Janes. But the really good coders, the coders who could find bugs fast, or write code that had never been thought of before, these men and women were mystics and they did not know it. At least they didn’t advertise it or talk about it.

These men and women would follow energy lines through the code in the same way I do to find lost keys. They would tap into collective fields of awareness in the same way a Shaman does. With a few of them, I saw that these skills would only come about when they had spent dozens of hours on a piece of code, and they were exhausted. Others would do it all the time.

The industry called them “good coders”. I called them Mystics. Not surprisingly, these coders were also interested in spiritual advancement, expansion of the mind, ETs, UFOs, and loved Fantasy and Science Fiction. All things that look beyond what we call “plain reality”.

When I have scratched a little bit by asking these mystic coders to explain how they do their work, I usually get two different reactions from them. One is to deny all “intuition” or “mystical skills” from the equation, and become defensive about their programming training and logical mind skills. The other is to become fascinated by the reality and their mystic skills are something they would love to learn more about, and want to know where or how to learn more.

In both cases, their abilities and their lives were fractured. Their minds, their identity and their mystical skills were far removed from each other. The really good coders had moments of connection (mysticism is all about connection), but in the main, stumbled upon a method that became how they code really good, like being up for a long time, or some other method to get in the flow. Still, it was something that was separate from their main self, more like a super self they use specifically and only for the purpose of coding.

Whenever I take on a Mystical Student, the first few months are spent decompartmentalizing their lives. It is spent putting together their minds and Identity back together again. Often, this involves becoming comfortable with sharing their “woo” interests with work colleagues and family members.

You are still reading this article, which means you have either gone through this decompartmentalization, or intuitively know that it is healthy to do so. And if it is the latter, the last sentence of the previous paragraph probably made you cringe. The thought of your work colleagues and family members knowing that you read this article, for example, might send shivers down your spine.
