The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you’re inside, you look around, what do you see? Businessmen, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inured, so hopelessly dependent on the system, that they will fight to protect it.

“Only the inner silence is yours.
No-one gave it to you.
You were born with it and you will die with it
Thoughts have been given to you;
You have been conditioned to them.”
1894 - 1963

Love is all that is real … Pure consciousness … When you tune into the vibrational energy of the Universe you are tuning into the highest vibratory frequency there is … the same wavelength that Love vibrations travel along … a continuum of Consciousness … At this level there is only Harmony - there is only the divine and holy trinity of Love/Universe/Consciousness that exists at this highest vibrational © Lisa Pearlman 3/28/12
