“Let me tell you why you’re here.”

“Let me tell you why you’re here.

You’re here because you know something.

What you know you can’t explain but you can feel it.

You’ve felt it your entire life: that there’s something wrong with the world.

You don’t know what it is but it’s there — like a splinter in your mind,

driving you mad.

It is this feeling that has brought you to me.

DO YOU KNOW what I am talking about?”

–Morpheus from the movie, THE MATRIX

This is a guru interviewing a potential disciple. Are you a spiritual seeker? DO YOU KNOW what I am talking about?

Are you discontent with your own viewpoint on life? The way that you have been taught to see life. Do you sense some fundamental flaw in this way of seeing yourself and what happens to you? Do you sense that you and everyone you know (except the guru or Master) is missing something when they look around and talk about what they see?

Are you unwilling to live a life along those socially constructed lines? Are you unwilling to define success according to conventional standards? Do you refuse to fit in to the categories that your family and neighbors hold dear? Do you squirm and sometimes seethe over these conventional values and ideas that are being constantly pushed upon you?

DO YOU KNOW what I am talking about?

That there is something wrong with the world and it’s something that is unclear. In fact, it’s unclear whether you will ever be able to see it. Sometimes you despair of ever getting free of its oppressive weight.
