In the Wes Penre Papers (WPP), as well as in our videos and articles, we have discussed the holes in the Grid multiple times, but we still get questions about them. It is completely understandable because this is an important topic as it discusses a way to exit the Matrix/Kenoma. Like with everything else, this topic can also be expanded upon to obtain more clarity. For instance, what is the Grid, and how can we make sure we find a hole once our bodies die?
I’m going to try to narrow this down from my current perspective, taking everything we have written and talked about so far regarding the Divine Mind into consideration (see previous articles in the Gnostic Musings Series).
The Grid is, as we have discussed many times before, the compilation of the human mass consciousness and our mass agreements. This “cloud” of thoughts is surrounding the world we live in as a Grid. We could say that the Grid is shaped like a veil around the planet. So long as we are stuck in our mass beliefs and just follow everybody else instead of thinking for ourselves outside the box, we will remain part of the mass consciousness, and thus being tangled up in the Grid.
When we die, we perceive ourselves leaving the physical body behind and continue our journey into what we call the “astral.” Most souls in a death experience find themselves floating in a “void” at first, watching the physical world below them or around them, until they either encounter a dead loved one, perhaps a spirit guide, or see the tunnel of light toward which they start gravitating. Very few of them see, or pay attention to, the Grid, apparently. Why is this?
What I have conveyed above is death from an “outside” perspective, i.e., it’s the projection onto the outside world. However, the real experience is not happening in the outside world/universe—it’s happening in the inside universe, i.e., in our minds. The journey, as we have also discussed in detail elsewhere, is happening inside ourselves—the rest is the projection of our own minds. Thus, people who don’t know this and have never heard about “holes in the Grid” will not be able to perceive them because their minds are focused on something else—the “agreed upon” procedures that follow death. The Grid and the holes in the Grid are not part of these common procedures that we have been accustomed to lifetime after lifetime.
Not until we educate ourselves and get a better understanding of what the human mind—the Divine Mind—really is can we more profoundly conceive of the Grid as an inside experience that we project outward.
Like everything inside our minds, it’s our own creation. You can’t perceive of anything that is not already living as a potential in your own mind. You can’t create from someone else’s mind. Thus, everything you experience is ultimately your own creation—so also the holes in the Grid, which you are creating inside yourself as a tool to break the wheel of reincarnation, if that’s your intention.
Therefore, to escape this loop of repeating incarnations, we imagine a hole in the Grid, and we mentally leave this construct and continue our inner journey, shifting our focus to something else—it’s all happening inside our minds. The holes in the Grid can’t exist in the outside world until they exist and are focused upon in the inside world. The holes in the Grid is a mind-tool to break the wheel.
It’s like when you write a book. The main character—the protagonist—might get stuck in the story, and the author doesn’t know in what direction to take the plot anymore. The author (the mind) then would need to create a solution so he can continue his journey. In his mind, he or she finds the solution, adds it to the plot, and the protagonist’s journey can continue. The hole in the Grid is ultimately just that, as I see it.
When we die, we will perceive ourselves experiencing the outside universe rather than what’s inside our minds—we focus on the projection that we share with many other people’s beliefs instead of what is happening inside of us.
From my perspective, it’s nothing different from an author creating a fantasy world, compared to Sophia creating a physical universe. Both create their characters, do world-building, create darkness and light, and good versus evil. Because Sophia (our own Higher Mind) created without her consort, she was shocked with the result and rejected it—thus, the subconscious mind was created which is the dark side of Sophia. In her mind, she created characters/star beings to populate the Universe—particularly in the 8th and the 9th Heavens. A fantasy author or a science fiction author do the same thing. Then, they put their thoughts into a book, projecting their creation outward, people read it, and the author’s universe is shared with all his or her readers.
The outer universe is what we project inside our personal mind and share with others, and then we receive the effects of what we put out—cause being the outward motion and effect being the receiving/inward motion, as a result of the cause. It’s a flow back and forth.
For the sake of simplicity, I like to think of the mind in the following way:
Many times, we’ve talked about “peeling the onion.” Our mind is layered, and we humans only have access to a small part of it, so long as we are incarnated in these solid physical bodies of limitation. However, we can still expand our minds while being incarnated if we are willing to do the work involved. I sometimes picture my mind as being inside my body—just for my own clarity—and perceive it as being layered. I only have access to as much of it as I am willing to confront because not all of it is pleasant. If it was, I would have access to the entire mind. Thus, I need to penetrate my own mind to the best of my ability. I can do this until I reach a “barrier” that is difficult to pass through. The reason for this can be manifold, of course, but it all boils down to fear. Who am I today? I am me to the degree I can penetrate my mind. Tomorrow, I might be a little more of my true self, or a little less, depending on my choices, based on fears or me overcoming fears.
How afraid are you to die? For this article, it’s an important question. The more we overcome the fear of death, and the more we are willing to explore the unknown parts of our minds, i.e., what is “outside the Grid,” the easier the transition between death and afterlife. If you are full of fear, the chances you are going to penetrate the part of your mind that is unexplored is severely diminished. It takes courage. Otherwise, you will more likely cycle back into already known territory, and the unknown parts inside you will remain unexplored. You will keep being stuck in the reincarnation wheel until one day, in another lifetime, you make a decision to be brave enough to penetrate the part of your mind that is unknown. You will need to think of the unknown as an exciting adventure—a new way of creation—in order to experiencing it.
But isn’t it enough just to loosely decide that you’re going through the Grid? Well, unless you are completely serious about it and have confronted your fear of death and the unknown and have firmly decided to let go of all attachments to this reality, the answer is most likely, no. This needs to be done first.
We all have the potential of breaking the wheel. It’s just a matter of how much of our phantom fears we are courageous enough to face and stay on top of. The “death implant” is strong in humans, but it’s still an illusion.
If you look at pets that are dying from old age, for example, they are not fearful—to them, it’s a natural process. I have witnessed this in quite a few of my own pets throughout my life, and it’s always been the same. The only ones who are upset are we humans. Yes, we miss them, which is a big part of it, but the death of a pet also subconsciously triggers our own fear of dying.
Lastly, are there other ways to exit the Matrix than through a hole in the Grid? Yes, there are, depending on our perspective. The holes in the Grid I believe is an excellent tool for us to imagine an exit point, but like everything else, it’s ultimately a mind tool. If what I have written in this article is correct, it’s enough to either think ourselves to which part of our minds we want to explore, experience, and create from after we die, and if we are mentally ready for it, that’s where our inner journey in the afterlife will take us. If we are not ready because we haven’t broken through certain barriers first, we might at least go as far as we can in our desired direction and continue from there.
I am an advocate for setting the intention, “I am going to the highest possible aspect of myself.” As I see it, with an intention like that, I can’t go wrong. I will then bring myself to a mind-space from which I am capable of creating and operating to the best of my current ability. The best way to accomplish what we want to accomplish after this life (for those who want to break the wheel) is to set the above intention and at the same time look for a hole to go through. By doing both, you would be covered, so to speak. You may or may not need the hole-in-the-Grid tool.
What about the “Guards” who ancient texts talk about—Archontic forces that supposedly are sitting like gatekeepers between the Heavens? Yes, they do exist inside your mind, which is the same as Sophia’s mind, i.e. the Universe. If you do encounter them, how are you supposed to handle that? Well, keep the perspective that they are existing inside your mind, and that you are in control of your own mind. Then, you decide how to deal with them. For instance, if you have a compulsive thought in your head about something, do you need to act upon it? No, it’s up to you! The same thing applies to the Guards. You have freewill over your own mind, and you don’t need to respond to those potential “barriers.” You just continue your journey without paying attention to them. The only one who can stop you from reaching your mind’s destination is YOU. No one else has control over your mind except you—unless you let them. This is the reason why others, in order to win you over and get what they want from you, need to manipulate you first. Your mind needs to abide to their will, or they are helpless. They need your consent—literally. Thus, nothing happens to us that we haven’t first agreed to in our own minds. If we hadn’t agreed to it, it could never have happened.
This is how I currently look at it.
