Notes on Exit From The Matrix

Notes on Exit From The Matrix

by Jon Rappoport

February 13, 2017

These are notes I made in preparation for my collection Exit From The Matrix:

“New space and time appear when a person contemplates doing something he really wants to do.”

“The greatest thing in the world is doing what you really want to do. Once you start, all sorts of implications and ripples and consequences develop. You even begin to imagine new branches on that tree. The tree gets bigger. There are no limits.”

“The self plus imagination plus commitment to action is a force that, in the long run, can never be defeated.”

“What is a goal? It’s really doing more and more of what you want to do. How you organize it and define it are secondary.”

“Everybody knows that time changes when you’re absorbed in doing what you really want to do. But how many people realize that’s a revision of time itself? Time is a function of doing what you want to do.”

“Finding a new goal, a new direction isn’t all that hard. Committing to it and acting on it is a different matter. If you want to achieve the goal, think of the alternative: doing nothing. Acting on a new goal has nothing to do with perfection. Perfection as a prerequisite is a waste of time. It’s also likely to be just one more way of postponing action.”

“Goals don’t have to be described with exact clarity at the outset. As you take action, things will become clearer, things will develop. For example, if your goal is to write, then write. Later on, you can decide what kind of writing you want to do. You may discover you want to do five different kinds of writing.”

“When a person has a problem, the question is, in what context does the problem exist? If there is no context, then the person has lost sight of what he wants to do in life.”

“Knowing what you want to do, and doing it, creates a perspective from which problems are manageable.”

“I’ve known people who have swung into action on a goal…and then later, in the midst of their action, they discovered a larger purpose. If they weren’t taking action, they never would have discovered the new purpose.”

“What holds a person back? He perceives he has a problem. But he has no larger context in which he can view the problem.”

“Does a person want to get ahead and advance along a certain line or doesn’t he? If not, he’s in a muddle. The muddle looks like a problem. He produces excuses. The answer is always reaching out into the world with action. His imagination is telling him that all the time, but he isn’t listening.”

“Why do people give up? Because they want to.”

“Why do people strive to create something they desire in the world? Because they want to.”

“Why do people occupy a middle ground between these two choices? Because they want to.”

“Fortunately, a person can change his mind about what he wants. And then, in a second, everything changes. Imagination is the key. He imagines something new and he says, ‘That’s it. That’s what I want’.”

    Jon, your work is wonderful. I live your articles and your interviews on various YouTube channels. Have you ever considered recording audios of your emailed and posted articles and creating your own youtube channel? You have a powerful voice and your research and words need further reach, such would also be easy to share with other inside the matrix!

      I second the motion. The spoken word is often much more effective, and Jon’s delivery is effective. His sarcasm is absolutely perfect – not overdone, but not too subtle. And his sense for the absurd is unmatched (except by Monty Python). Check out this short video – shades of John Cleese!
