More on the Matrix...
Why You Don't Know Real Love | Lauryn Hill
Who saw the movie The Matrix? The Matrix was a banging movie to me. And the reason why I appreciated it so much, was because- remember at the end when Neo realises his potential? He started to see the binary code. Remember that? The whole world. That’s where I’m trying to be spiritual. I’m trying to see the word of God in the whole world. Every time that agent throws a punch, I’m like: I see you! You know, I’m just catching his punches. You know, so I’m not afraid.
I’m not afraid because I’m starting to see that.
Situations materialize themselves and “hugh!! He’s an agent!”
Here’s the trick: You have to remember that sometimes you can be an agent. You can be an agent to yourself. You can be an agent against someone else, and not even realize that you’re been used. You Know?
Let me tell you another thing about the Matrix. I was always confused about it. I always thought that you know, the Matrix was battling the enemy out there. Picking the battle. I’m going to find those enemies, I’m gonna get that enemy! Until I realize that until you conquer the enemy in yourself, you can’t deal with anyone.
In order to be “used by God”, you have to really be used. We always want to be used for the glorious jobs. Let God put me on a stage, in front of the people, and the Grammy show, and a nice dress on, and let me just praise your Name.
But that’s not been used- sometimes in order to be used, you also have to be humiliated. It’d be humiliating sometimes. You have to be kicked, and beaten. And in that situation, the person who is kicking and beating, he’s feeling more pain than you are.
You know, love is an incredible thing.
And we don’t know love like we should. We always talk about “I have unconditional love”.
Unconditional love is we don’t even know it. Because if a person stops stimulating us, we stop loving him. You’re not interesting to talk to anymore, goodbye! But that real love, that love that sometimes is difficult… difficult to have, that’s that love. And that's the confidence builder.
