To bend a stick breaks it
If pushed too far
It’s who we are
The neck of a bird
That flies into glass
The necklace I pull in anger
And the pot
On my clumsy way past
Behind all these things
And in everything that we do
We humans are so blunt
Working with only what we can see
This did that because I pressed this
Didn’t pay attention
But we miss the point
We are vibrational beings
And every action that we take
Has a whole chain of consequences
Into another sphere
Every thought we have
Every decision made
Is toppling dominoes
Somewhere we can’t reach
And we can sit paralysed by this fear
Of all those unknown
Or we can learn the art of refactoring
Within our own sphere
Changing the software
But it’s not enough
We need to dig deeper
“Refactoring is the process of changing software system in a way that does not change the external behaviour of the code but improves its internal structure.” Martin Fowler. Refactoring preserves valuable behaviour patterns whilst discarding those which no longer serve us, it simplifies and deletes the murky time consuming clunky chains of command.
What you end up with is clean code and an optimised system.
Ever had a computer blue circle, freeze up, slow down, jam up?
Frustrating isn’t it?
And that’s what happens to us humans all the time.
We are just computers. These things – we have produced on our own likeness because that is all we can comprehend, our own likeness.
When a machine or a system produces an outcome which we expect, because we have pushed a few buttons, we think nothing of it.
As humans, we expect different behaviour, yet we keep pushing the same damn buttons and we refuse or cannot even see that it is our inner code that is writing our system.
Then we have an aha moment and we begin to refactor
Once we have refactored the code, and improved the structure of our internal system then and only then can we hope to begin overhauling the entire system. We can’t buy a whole new body but we don’t have to.
The body renews itself constantly and it builds itself from the choices we make ie exercise, food etc, what it can’t do – is upgrade the internal software – the mind does that.
Which is why diets fail and gym memberships lapse, because the mind is stuck in a pattern that it loops back to.
Unless we change our habits.
Unless we refactor but that’s not enough
Our phones come with upgrades
Our televisions come with upgrades
It is not enough to sit and visualise a better future
It is not enough to write some affirmations on a slip of paper
It is not enough to do yoga until our hamstrings a supple
It is not enough to meditate until the world goes quiet
It is not enough to choose better habits.
It is not enough to just refactor our code
These are all good things but dig deeper
Underneath all these things is an even deeper program and that is the subconscious
This is the part we have to reach to enact true change that will begin to change itself without us even having to think about it.
And change that changes itself is called lifting our vibration
Not just for a gap
A few minutes
Or half a day
Change that changes itself
Walks up the stairs by itself, we don’t even have to try
Which is good because as anyone who has tried to lift their vibration knows
Trying doesn’t work
We need to look deeper than just refactoring our codes
For anyone who has struggled to “lift their vibration” ala Abraham Hicks explanations
You are working with human eyes and a human mind on something you cannot see
In essence you are trying to think
Or I do anyway
So perhaps it would be better to see it this way
It works for me
You are a computer
Your brain is running the same data over and over from an old outdated server that no longer serves you
Upgrade your system
Watch inspirational videos
Read the books
But keep digging deeper
Change your code yes
But keep going
Why am I having this thought
What does this mean
Write it down
Take the leap to new behaviours
Does this work
Keep doing it
No this is not working
Keep it light
You’ve got the rest of your life
Keep pressing print
And see what happens
If you don’t like what you see
Living this life is a constant chance to adjust, we do it unconsciously anyway so why not choose.
