Burn After Playing

Cassette recorders are extinct Communication Devices in need of Erasing


We are like walking-talking cassette recorders. A pre-recorded cassette is inserted, and we are born into a script – a story that plays over and over again. 60, 90, 120 minute cassettes, are no different and we all value the ones with the longest life. Add more power to them and the Metal tapes were born, holding onto their illusionary powerful egoic songs with more perseverance and tenacity than before. Valued for their material contributions, songs of guilt become reinforced.

The settings or stages may change, but our life-tune recording stays the same. There is music playing in the background, and to all the cassette recorders this is seen as the world. Everybody’s background music is the same, and hence the world seems the same for all. The recorded stories play over-and-over again, and it just seems different, because his story of the past becomes history. The buildings, cars, technology and fashion seem to change, and this is a clever trick of the holographic projection of the ego-mind who changes the volume of the background music, making time appear real. History however just keeps repeating.

The white light of awareness is the miraculous magnetic eraser of firstly your story, then his-story and then of the background music until all that remains is a whole lot of cassette recorders playing white noise. By hanging onto your story or his-story, you make the recording real, and even though you are now sick and tired of playing out the same tune, you desperately hang onto your pre-recorded scripts, because you believe a blank cassette is worthless and is going to be thrown onto the garbage dump to be burned in the fire of recycling. 

Cassettes are extinct – their lives are over, but the music remains playing and the karmic themes are but a distant memory that the cassette recorder hold dear as truth. All illusions come to an end, but getting rid of a memory is another challenge altogether – yes one that altogether we as one have to choose to forget since all illusion is past, and past is not here in the now, and therefore an unreal truth which holds no meaning.

One way of healing is forgiveness of the scripts that have kept you in bondage and trapped in the loop of time and space. When you forgive your siblings you become united as One Mind, and little ego minds, the separated scripts are erased. Then as the deep subconscious guilt of the separation becomes clear as the background music is the only thing you hear, you forgive that too and all erroneous recorded background sounds in all cassettes are erased. In the silence of the white noise humming in the background, the Voice that calls you Home will be known. You can never hear truth, but know it you can and will when you hear it with ears that are not of this world.

Forgiveness as is taught in “A Course in Miracles” is a fine way to erase the noise of the script of your life and the background music’s incessant noise. Another erasing device is a technique made famous by Dr H Len called Ho’oponopono. It goes like this;

The Process of Ho’oponopono: 

  1. Bring to mind anyone with whom you do not feel total alignment or support, etc.
  2. In your mind’s eye, construct a small stage below you
  3. Imagine an infinite source of love and healing flowing from a source above the top of your head (from your Higher Self), and open up the top of your head, and let the source of love and healing flow down inside your body, fill up the body, and overflow out your heart to heal up the person on the stage. Be sure it is all right for you to heal the person and that they accept the healing.
  4. When the healing is complete, have a discussion with the person and forgive them, and have them forgive you.
  5. Next, let go of the person, and see them floating away. As they do, cut the aka cord that connects the two of you (if appropriate). If you are healing in a current primary relationship, then assimilate the person inside you.
  6. Do this with every person in your life with whom you are incomplete, or not aligned.
    The final test is, can you see the person or think of them without feeling any negative emotions. If you do feel negative emotions when you do, then do the process again.

And of course some will say; “But Lu, it’s difficult to forgive them. They are such assholes, bla, bla, bla….. I can’t forgive them, they don’t deserve to be forgiven.”

And what you don’t realise is that forgiveness is easy. Thin of how easy it is to live with someone who you have nothing to forgive. Living with hate, fear, judgements, resentment, anger and blame, now that is hard to do. Forgiveness is easy, and when you forgive you set yourself and them free. In freedom we unite as One, and the world becomes a little bit more like heaven.

Holding onto blame, is similar to holding onto guilt. Its like swallowing poison, hopping the other person will die or be set free.

Now which one do you really think is more difficult?

Namaste beloved siblings

In love, truth and in joy as we return to One.
