On Being Neo (no I don’t have megalomania)

Neo from the Matrix is a Christ-figure.

Yup, I said it.

However, I may be stating the obvious but the difference between Neo and us is very little.  The differences between Christ and Neo is huge as well as it is with the rest of humanity.

However, I digress.

Each of us is born into a system.  For the most part most people accept that system into which they are born into.  If they have good conditioning, the outcomes of their lives are generally good.  If they have bad conditioning, the outcomes are generally bad and it gets aggravated with each continuing generation.

Then there are those of us who have a defining moment and get outside and rise above that system just slightly, and we begin to rebuild our lives accordingly.  We begin to work on the things we can change and eventually we begin to do what we previously thought was impossible.  It generally happens during some crisis in our lives and we decide are going to live differently and resist the old ways.

Sadly enough this doesn’t happen to everyone all though it can.  One cannot just wait around for other people to “wake up” we have to find people who already have decided they are going to live life on their own term and live a principled life.

As hard as it is some days, it is better to die to old habits and live in the life God has created us for.
