This episode of The TruthSeekah Podcast is titled Bandersnatch referring back to the new Netflix episode of Black Mirror with the same title. Bandersnatch is an episode where you actually get to make choices throughout the show that inevitably change the outcome of the episode. You get to choose what cereal the main character eats for breakfast, what music he listens to, if he should take his meds and a ton more. The concept is taken from some of the choose your path books that came out in the 80’s and 90’s such as the Goosebumps book Escape from the Carnival of Horrors which I read in 1995. Without giving away too many spoilers I believe the movie is a representation of our lives as it explores the multiple timelines theory that coexist almost as dimensions directly on top of the reality that we are currently experiencing. Another movie that did a great job exploring this scenario was The Butterfly Effect with Ashton Kutcher that came out in the early 2000’s. The weird thing about the film is that I have talked to people who have reported having panic attacks and others who said the film just made them feel “weird” after watching. Theres something about tampering with the past in order to create a different outcome and the movie definitely made you examine your life and ask yourself the question “How in the hell did I end up here”. I believe many of us “end up here” by default. We needed a job and then filled out a random job application for a company that we have now been at for 6 years… 10, 20 years. This was totally not the plan, this was not in the foreseen future and deep down you may feel like “I KNOW this is NOT my destiny“. Just as a series of actions led you to that random dead end job a similar “conscious” set of actions can lead you into your destiny landing that dream job and doing what you LOVE for a living. I have found that it is about becoming mindful of every waking moment and not letting time just pass you by. By bringing our thoughts into captivity we can in the now moment formulate a game plan to bring about these results. Choose your destiny, if not, one will be chosen for you.
