Dial: 1-111-111-1111. Ringggg, ringggg, ringggg.
“Consciousness HumAuto. Wrench speaking. How may I help you?”
“Oh, hi. I’d like to schedule my holographic human for a tune up.”
“Haha–holographic human. Is there any other kind?”
“Good one. No, guess not.”
“Anyhoo, what can I-Am-That-I-Am do you for?”
“My human’s been acting up.”
“Well, it’s always been a little problematic–but even more so, lately. It runs hot or cold. Sometimes it brakes hard and pulls to the left–as though driven by fear; and sometimes it suddenly accelerates and veers right–as though chasing pleasure. If I didn’t know better, I’d swear that it had a mind of its own.”
“If I had a nickel for every time I’ve heard that,” said Wrench. “Sounds like a governor issue, to me.”
“Oh, and another thing, for the last forty years or so, I’ve been hearing a loud tick, tick, ticking–kind of like an internal voice. It’s begins when the alarm goes off in the morning and it doesn’t quit until deep sleep.”
“Is your human judgmental?”
“It wrote the book! It’s also got a really bad shimmy–seems to worry about everything.”
“Humph, it sounds as though it’s picked up an ego-stone in your hubcap. Anyhooo, bring your human in to the shop; and I’ll lift it up on the hoist and give it a good going over. How’s Thursday at 1:00 work for you?”
“Perfect. See you then.”
Thursday at 4:00. Ringgg, ringgg, ringgg
“Hi, there, it’s Wrench calling from Consciousness Humauto. You can come over and pick up your human.”
“Oh, great, how’d you make out?”
“Let’s just say that’s it’s a miracle you were still keeping that human of yours on the road.”
“You don’t say. What did you find?”
“Well, I put it on the dyhumanometer–ran a battery of tests. The harder I pushed that human of yours, the more it resisted. Timing was wayyy off. It was back firing regrets about the past, and belching fears about the future that made my mechanics blush. I did the best that I could to center it in the here and now.”
“I apologize. Thanks for doing all that you could.”
“It’s all good. The main problem was that your Spirit Reserve was dangerously low–your I Am That I Am barely registed on the dip stick. I strongly suggest that you knowingly fill that up again–but that’s up to you. We can’t do it for you.”
“Really? How do I do that?”
“You gotta get out of your mind. I recommend daily meditation, even for just a few minutes. Second choice would be to go for a walk in nature. Just be. That should help put an end to that shimmy.”
“What about that ticking sound.”
“I guessed that one right–your human had picked up an ego stone. That’s what was causing the loud ticking. Yeowee, it was a big one! I don’t know if I’ve ever seen an ego that big. It thought it was running the show. No wonder your human was veering all over the place.”
“How much do I owe you?”
“No charge. This One’s on the House. Trust me, you’re doing the Universe a favour by getting your human in order.
“Thanks, I’ll do my best.”
Special Note: Contrary to public opinion, that loud and often annoying tick, tick, ticking commentary that your human makes, isn’t the real YOU. That’s an ego-stone attempting to make your life miserable. The sooner you regain control of your human, the better. Just know that it’s going to rebel. It’s going to tell you that it’s the driver; that it’s normal to brake hard or suddenly accelerate right or left. It isn’t. There’s a balanced way to live in harmony; but to experience that you have to find your Divine Center. A word of advice: Don’t waste time searching for the Center outside of yourself. Turn within–it’s the only place you’ll find It; because you are It. Your essential nature has just been overshadowed by the false driver that goes by your name and description. If all else fails, dial us Consciousness Humauto and ask for Wrench.
Dare to dream (and care for one another).
