The World Inside our Minds

I have a guest in the house who has been reading from the sites for awhile. He flew down from Sweden last night and we talked for about half an hour before he retired.

Since I have relocated to Europe almost ten years ago I have lived as a near recluse. I have no close friends around and I see no one socially except at rare moments orchestrated by others. I see the people in my house every day. There are two of them. Weeks may go by without my speaking with another person except to say “Good Day”. It’s the same thing if I am in Italy. I don’t seem to mind. My life goes on inside my head. Regardless of how much social contact any of us have that is still the case. Our lives go on inside our heads.

We give our life whatever meaning it has. Any observer might take away a different impression on the meaning. No one would have all the details. In most cases our lives are mere sketches. We live within an outline of constantly changing features. Many people sit in the sunset of their lives and often wonder who the events they remember happened to. What really happened is altered by imagination and the limitations of memory. Very often we know no more about ourselves at the end than we did at the beginning. We define ourselves by the situations and environments we encountered or passed through. We see ourselves in the context of our family and friends as well as our occupations and interests. These may define portions of the personality we traveled in but they do not define us. What we are very often remains a mystery.

We can’t account for choices we made and actions we took. Of course we have theories and opinions but the answer very often lies in the places we were not inclined to look.

My guest was talking about events in the wider world and one particular piece of information he had encountered recently. In respect of this he said, “Well, this depresses me. If it’s true then we’re screwed aren’t we?” When I heard this, I experienced a series of impressions which leads me to my subject for the day. It’s about the world inside our heads and the things we tell ourselves which affects our climate. We have internal weather just like the weather that Nature brings us through her annual course. What we think about ourselves and the world beyond is what determines the weather we have; our personal weather and what Nature brings us too. It is the collective consciousness of the people that determines what Nature gives us. Many people would argue about the latter. It’s too esoteric a concept. I live in Esoterica so, for me, it makes perfect sense.

My guest presented me with some details that he had read at one of the blogs about an historical event. Some reader had laid the blame for this event at the door of an extremely wealthy and influential family. I considered what he told me and thought about it in relation to the timeline. It happened to be a period of history I have a certain familiarity with. It took only a short period of time for me to reject the assumption he had made based on something someone else had said. His believing it to be true affected his personal climate. His world, my world and your world are all the result of what we believe is true and very often what we believe to be true is not true at all.

When we believe things which are not true we empower them. They can become increasingly more real as time passes. It is safe to say that many people are living in a complete hallucination. It is also safe to say that many of these hallucinations are manufactured by agencies and entities that profit from the public’s propensity for hallucination.

I thought about the way my mind works when I am confronted by concretized belief and opinions and then I saw a momentary flash of the beauty of, “I don’t know”. You might well ask, “How can you say you don’t know when you were able to assume that the information under discussion was not real”? The thing is, “I don’t know” is a lot more than it appears to be. Just because I can analyze something and encounter errors in the presentation, does not mean that I know what really happened. I do not need to know what really happened to know that what I am being told is wrong. Knowing at a fundamental level that I do not know also gives me a fundamental awareness that others do not know either. Quite often what people think they know is no more than a belief in a particular perspective that, ironically, serves and/or benefits them in some way. Quite often what we believe is not based on any actual knowledge but rather upon what we want to believe. It’s a rare bird who is after the truth simply to know the truth, whatever that may be.

If people would take the trouble to look deeply into what they believe and be honest with themselves they would soon find that much of what they believe and think they know does not exist.

There’s a reason I’m talking about this. It has to do with a valuable benefit that we can accrue to ourselves if we will do the necessary work. I can see that the world is screwed up due to a proliferation of self-interest and the force of a materialistic age. I can see this but... I don’t know what it means except to say that it’s all for the purpose of demonstration. Life is nothing more than a demonstration whose purpose is to show us something and it shows us over and over again. We could have understood long ago but our self-interest is in conflict with reality.

While the world may well be screwed up, my life is not and I’m not the Lone Ranger in this department. One can take the view that the world is a very dangerous place and these are perilous times and I could make a good argument for that myself but... I find that my life tends to move in a smooth and unobstructed fashion nearly all of the time. I do not encounter danger. I don’t encounter the things I hear about in the news. I’m not feeding my internal weather generator with information that is created for the purpose of making me, or anyone, insecure and uneasy. I know that everything is under control and that this whole movie is designed for my education and entertainment. I know the stars were set in the sky with me in mind. The whole universe was designed with me and you in mind. It’s all about us. It’s not about anything else or anything that happens and... I don’t know.

We give negative forces power in our lives by believing they have any power to begin with. Here is a simple guideline that, if it is consistently applied, can open an entirely new world for anyone who will take the trouble to practice it. Remind yourself as often as you can remember to do so that, everything is under control. Remind yourself that you do not know. Remind yourself that you fundamentally do not know and that by truly not knowing- whatever you encounter or have under consideration- will reveal itself to you.

You can’t go through your life worrying about what’s on the horizon that may not even be in the horizon. Yes, the world is about to be shaken to the core. This is, in fact, very good news, unless you’ve got major investments in the way it is now. Try to accept that everything has been created and exists with you in mind and that once you can establish the linkup with the guide who accompanies you everywhere; whether you know it or not, that you will be shown the meaning of things as they apply to you. It really is all about you. It’s just not all about you the way certain personalities think it is when they’re riding the big wave and looking in the mirror.

Obtaining the living conviction of “I don’t know” frees you from the consequences of the unreal which will surely come upon you in order to ‘free you’ from the false beliefs that imprison you. If you don’t know, then a certain very powerful something does know. If you know, then... that powerful something does not. It’s the choice of only two possibilities of a relationship with something that cannot be comprehended but can certainly be trusted with your life and all that it contains. I don’t care how many options and possibilities you may think you see. There are only two. You go with the cosmic program or you are in some way or fashion in opposition to it and it’s going to reveal that to you as an object lesson. Everything is under control by this powerful something unless... you decide to take over and... well... that’s life.

It’s a good thing to remember that angels were created to ‘serve’ us. If our lives are screwed up it’s because we put ourselves in charge and relied on the general information of commonly shared belief. We have no idea what is and what is not. Make “I don’t know” a part of your being and accept that it is all under control and I’m thinking someone might well show you what is and what is not.

I don't know why but, I keep waking up at 3:30am with an uneasy feeling. I don't know why. I agree that the world is going to wake up soon and something will be very different. I don't know what. I don't know why but, I get the feeling I will be on the other side of whatever it is and I don't know what it is but it will be something to look back at and wonder...

Succinct and wise counsel from you, Les. Reminded me in some parts of 'Desiderata' by Max Ehrmann:

'Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune...

But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and lonliness...

You are a child of the universe, no less than the trees and the stars; you have a right to be here...

And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should...

Therefore be at peace with God, whatever you conceive him to be...'

Thanks, Les.

Another Wonderful post Vis (-___-)

Quoting R A Wilson-

“Belief is the death of intelligence. As soon as one believes a doctrine of any sort, or assumes certitude, one stops thinking about that aspect of existence.”

“. . . there are periods of history when the visions of madmen and dope fiends are a better guide to reality than the common-sense interpretation of data available to the so-called normal mind. This is one such period, if you haven't noticed already.”

“The shock of discovering that most of the power in the world is held by ignorant and greedy people can really bum you out at first; but after you've lived with it a few decades, it becomes, like cancer and other plagues, just another problem that we will solve eventually if we keep working at it.”

“Of course I'm crazy, but that doesn't mean I'm wrong.”

I will just share 2 succinct memories that popped into my mind when I read you post.

The first was when I was a kid and I would always tell my mother 'I don't care' when she asked something, used to frustrate her to no end and she eventually came back with 'Well what do you care about?' in a very unhappy tone. When I was a kid though for whatever reason, nothing ever seemed important enough to care about one way or the other.

The other memory was when I was in grad school and I was supposed to become an expert in my field. Well many of my answers to many questions were, 'I don't know'. This really doesn't fly well in academia. Needless to say that experience ended in the lesson of failure.

Thanks for sharing the post.

Visible, as you know I am a college professor and allow me first off to thank you for always answering every email I send you and also for telling me, "I don't really give a fuck who you are." when I told you who I am.

Despite what my colleagues might think and considering also that they do not invite me to their houses anymore; tenure is a wonderful thing.

Despite what my colleagues think, I am after the truth and have been thirsty for it since I was a child. My fortunes of birth gave me access to a world that few enter without the need of usurious, costly lubrication.

Visible, you are the prophet of my heart. I've read the dead and the living but you come alive in my mind every time I read your words. You could not possibly write what you do on your own. No man can be this consistent and accurate so as to speak to the living soul of the reader.

I said that the truth has been my objective since I was a child. The fortunes of my birth have given me the opportunity to become a performing whore and no more. In some ways I owe you my life because just as I was about to make the worst decision of my life; already a reader for a year or more, you wrote about compromise and the lure of the temporal. I had to make a decision and I made the opposite choice to what my family, friends and colleagues expected. I was roundly criticized for doing so.

I avoided humiliation and censure that I richly deserved, just by the company I keep, because I took your advice.

You're right. We have only one friend and I can only think that grace led me here before I made a terrible mistake. To quote The Beatles, "I got the news today, oh boy."

Thank you.

From the world inside my mind to the world inside your mind I wonder if a Dr Spock meld would clear the fog of pampered memories ?

Some folks that I deal with in the virtual world and the imaginary world and on a forum have said that I need help because of my beliefs and my posts.
This is a recient one of which you may have heard me mention before in a similar theme, but expanded now ->

No doubt there are quite a few of you that are totally clueless about what zionism is. That statement is not an insult as zionism is a topic/belief system that is not well exposed or explained, no doubt because it is partially hidden and not proud of its existance. If you were to compare it to something I guess the closest thing like it is greed, an uncontrolled urge to have so much more than is deserved and a hidden embarresment to the follower.
Zionism is a mental aborition as its stated aim to create a homeland for gods chosen jews and a city for god as stated in their old books including the bible. The sequence of things prophesised in the old books has a couple of main features, the first one being a holocaust a melting of 6 million jews IN ISRAEL and the second is then the creation of a new city of god called Zion also in Israel, hence the name zionism. Now many many people have no interest or belief in god or the bible but still are followers of zionism, And while many having an understandable distrust in the 'for profit' religions that have been created by man and do not reflect any true respect for god, the main belief system of zionism is because of religious influences.
So while zionism is trying to destroy and obscure the fundimental truths that many religions contain, they want non zionists to have no belief or trust in god and would rather that the goy (as they refer to the lesser others) worship only greed. (As money lenders have the source sewn up)


DodgyOne said...

So getting back to the sequence of events that zionists are trying to create in some demented distorted sence of self importance, the melting and then the city of zion, they are ardiment and obsessively trying to claim that the events they call the holocaust have already occured in the second world war in EUROPE. Now lets assume for a second that somehow the bible got the location of the melting wrong and that it has occured and the state of Israel is the new Zion under construction.

If the melting has occured why then is Israel and the so called zionists so shit scared of Iran having nukes to cause another melting when they should have faith that no power on earth could cause a second holocaust and melting of 6 million zionists as foretold in their books

Also since the facts in logical order as well as zionists obvious trembelling fear of Irans nuke suggest that the melting is yet to come and that the illconcieved state of Israel is not zion but rather the demoniod zionists attempt to pre-empt the occurance. There is no logic in believing that Iran will need to create nukes for the melting as they may not be the ones that create it or even launch it. The melting is just as much possible of happening by Israels own nukes/plants in Israel, in full compliance with those living by the (nuke)sword dieing by the (nuke)sword.

So having established that zionism is a demonicly demented greed system and that its is in control of most of the worlds money. It is also very obvious that these demonoids have no remaining humanity but are instead beasts unlike any born of nature. In a weird twist of reality the demoniod beasts who call us goy are so completley what they think they are superior to.Therefore to expect them do any good thing is foolish folly and wishfull thinking. The logical thing to do is suspect that every thing they try and inflict apon us is evil and destructive to nature and life. So riddiculing those who distrust demonic beasts and their slaves is self and life destructive and highly stupid given these facts that cannot be shown as false.
End Quote

So as its said by a few that I need help, I would not expect they capable of giving any, but the author and readers here have shown great wisdom and so I would ask them to point out if my take on zionutter demoniods is or could be considered reasonably accurate. If not then where and why as I dont want to be spreading falsehoods.

"It is safe to say that many people are living in a complete hallucination. It is also safe to say that many of these hallucinations are manufactured by agencies and entities that profit from the public’s propensity for hallucination."

Yes, it is a hallucination. For lower level sociopaths/psychopaths it is about greed. For the top of the pyramid it is about control.

Mayer Amschel Rothschild quote: "Give me control of a nation's money and I care not who makes the laws."

It is about control under the illusion of freedom, liberty and choice within and only within the physical plain. Unfortunately, most people only reside on this plain and are blinded by its offerings.

Gandhi: "An eye for an eye only ends up making the whole world blind."

And it most certainly is.

I buy some items from a merchant across the street from where i live. They are from Yemen. Yemen is on the verge of civil war between Sunni and Shia. The shopkeeper is Sunni. We have had many conversations regarding the conflict. I have attempted to education him on the principle of "Divide and Conquer". Admittedly, it took me years to understand this evil myself. I have failed to educate him or he simply chooses not to see. He tells me how much he loves his country, yet he and his clan live here, in the US.
I once asked him the difference between Shia and Sunni. He stated that Shia believe in human sacrifice. I replied, oh really?

The last conversation we had was about Saudi Arabia's involvement in the Yemen conflict and the corrupt house of Saud, and other interest dedicated to these divisions. He was more concerned with the importation of arms to the northern Shia by Iran and justification for Saudi involvement. We went round and round the wheel for a couple more rounds to no avail. My last statement to him was: then, by all means, get on with it already. Kill yourselves off.

The conflicts over there are, of course, no different then the conflicts over here. The factions here have different names and are not divided by country, per se. But, it is the same game. Each sect, each race, each faction, each religion in contempt the other for a avirice crumb of the shrinking pie.

The battle to create but not knowing what has been made is center in these trying times! I say youre very correct about the weather. I say we have a darkside that creates the world needed for us to see how far off the cosmic path we are? We, your on person does this, not large source needed? Now it seems to me that other forces have helped guide a few to this nature as all, but I dont know their names.
Question, how do you link this open mind you ask for with open acts? Are they not linked together. At the moument of action is there not some "knowing" involved? Yes it maybe just us acting out a dream state for sure but cant that loop be guide and not watched?

" When we believe things which are not true we empower them."

Yes soo true but doesnt this work the other way around too? We are empower to be wrong, and via a long road and time we give up these beliefs? I say its better to turn over every stone and walk away with nothing than not try to began with? Maybe Im missing somthing here.
Please the world we share to not under control, nor are we. The unseen world and the glue between is very much moving in peace but we have a hard time getting there. I say we cant, while on earth. Zeus created man by spilting him in two halfs?
What is left than to do, set under the tree and wait? Did not Budda move from this too?
Its a gift that the world is in the mind!!! I learned long ago a bad day is all my making. And for sure, as I became more filled with love the world has become that love! I know where that love is coming from? I know when Im not moving with it. But as you well point out, I cant find an outlet for it thats not made up by myself. I say so what, was creation guide by a plan or a will? I say a will, and I will create with that love even if its a dream? Thank all, God dreams too!!

He was a carpenter kitty. Now the Nazz was the kind of a cat that come on so cool and so groovy and so with it that when he laid it down, whabam! It stayed there! Naturally all the rest of the cats said, "Man, look at that cat wail! He's wailin' up a storm up there. Hey, eh, ain't it down right? Hey, get off my back Jack! What's the matter with you? I'm tryin' to dig what the cat's puttin' down!" They're pushin' the Nazz to dig his miracle lick, and the Nazz say, "Cool, babies. Tell ya' what I'm gonna do. I ain't gonna take two, four six, eight of you cats, but I'm gonna take all twelve of you studs and straighten you all at the same time. Say, you cats look like you pretty hip." He say, "You buddy with me."

So The Nazz and his buddies was goofin' off down the boulevard one day and they run into a little cat with the bent frame. So The Nazz look at this little cat with the bent frame and he say, "What's a matter wit' you, baby?"
Little cat with the bent frame he said, "My frame is bent Nazz, it's been bent from in front."
So The Nazz look at the little cat with a bent frame and he put the golden eyes of love on this here little kitty and he look right down into the window of the little cat's soul and he say to the little cat, he say, "Straighten!" Vrooom - Boom! Up went that cat like an arrow and everybody jumpin' up and down say "Look what The Nazz put on that boy! Hah-hah. You dug him before," said "re-dig him now!"

Everybody talkin' about The Nazz, what a great cat he was, how he swung with the glory of love, how he straighten out all the squares, how he stomp into the money changin' cart and kicked the short change all over the place and knockin' the corners off the squares. How he put it down to the one cat, dug it, didn't dig it. Put it down twice, dug it, didn't dig it. Put it down the third time, dug it, boom, walked away with his eyes buggin' out to here bumpin' into everybody. And they're pullin' on The Nazz's coat tail, they want him to sign the autograph. They want him to do a gig here, do a gig there, play the radio, play the video; He can't make all that jazz! Like I 'splained to you he's a carpenter kitty, got his own lick. But when he know he should go and show and blow, and cannot go, cause he got too much strain on him, straightenin' out the squares...

I think the only thing that really kept me alive was the use of psychedelics since the late sixties.
Granted, a lot of my friends who went to the needle etc. are dead now, and I did veer by using Vitamin K, and MDMA (in a therapeutical setting, trying to overcome preadolescent sexual abuse), and heroin as well, but that is long past. With LSD or psilocybin or MDMA in large doses, as you know, you could just 'see' the lie on the carnival barker on his/her face before they ever moved their lips. After I gave up using them (after you get the message hang up the phone) I found this ability stuck with you. And then you get an ability to "intuit things." It's all strange to me, and who knows how it works, but K and MDMA are really strong in this regard.

Les, Im trying to work it out, but I just dont trust people. You could be an agent of the dark forces. Who knows. I don't know you. So I sit here in this farmhouse.
I will go on to Basilicata, as that is on the schedule. Maybe if you return to Italy we will met, maybe not. And I want to re see the museums of N. Italy. But I have been delayed in Malta with great hesitation. Just a vibe. I expected a big boom in the US but turned out wrong. Maybe all of the prognostications are wrong? I guess it all comes from being abused by my uncle, I simply dont trust adults. I still have the medicine and will dispense it if I ever go to Italy. I am not a liar. A wonder maybe I got it this far.
Probably you shouldnt publish this. There are "only" 400k people here, but with the CCTVs in UK, etc.,and here, you never know.

So The Nazz say, "Say, what seems to be troublin' you boys? Heh heh. Say, you hittin' on that SOS'in' bell pretty hard. You gonna' bend that bell knockin' on it like that."
One of the cats say, "What's eatin' ya? Oh, can't ya see the storm's goin' and the lightnin' flashin' and the thunder roarin'!"
And The Nazz say, "I told you stay cool didn't I babies?"
To the people who don't know, that means to believe, to stay cool is to be, to have the sweet fragrance of serenity rock your wig. See. So now everybody's talkin' about the Nazz. Ooh, this beautiful, swingin' man. How he's settin' the country on fire with great sparks of great love like a swingin' non-stop satellites goin' through all the lanes and valleys and puttin' down the scene with such beauty and such power and such charm that there are now sparks seventy-five feet long shootin' out of the grapevine and they now got five thousand of these little cats and kitties in the Nazz's home town where the cat live, lookin' to get straight. Well he knows he can't straighten'em there. It's too small a place to want to hang everybody up. So the Nazz backed away a little bit and he look at these cats and these kitties and he say, "Come on, babies. Let's cut on out down the pike." And there went the Nazz, with these five thousand cats and kitties a stompin' up a storm. Behind them there's a great love river joy, it's goin' like a great chain through these gorgeous cats and kitties as they're swingin' along in the beat of the Nazz and the birds are flyin' on one side and singin' love songs to these cats and kitties and there's a great jubilee of love. And the Nazz talkin' about how pretty the hour, how pretty the flower, how pretty you, how pretty me, how pretty the tree. Nazz had them pretty eyes. He wanted everybody to see with his eyes and see how pretty it was. And they're havin' such a glorious swingin' time that before you know it they were forty-two miles out of town and ain't nobody got the first biscuit.
So the Nazz look at them cats and kitties and he say "You hungry ain't ya babies?"
And the cat say, "Yea Nazz, say we's diggin' so hard what you puttin' down, heh-heh, we didn't prepare, say we goofed."
So the Nazz say, "Well, we gotta take it easy here We wouldn't want to go ahead and order up something you might not like, would we."
And they said "Sweet double hipness, you put it down and we'll pick it up."
And the Nazz step away a little bit and he put a glorious sound of love on.
He said "Oh, sweet swingin' flowers of the field."
And they said "Oh, great non-stop singular sound of beauty."
And he said "Stomp upon the terra."
They did.
He said, "Lift your miracle of the body."
The body went up.
He said "Lift your arms."
The arms went up.
He said "Higher and higher."
He said "Dig infinity!"
And they dug it!
And when they did that, there was a flash of thunder, and in one hand was a great big stuffed sweet, swingin', smoked fish and in the other a long gone crazy loaf of that southern home-made, honey-tastin', sweet bread. Why, these poor cats flipped!
Nazz never did nothin' simple, when he laid it, he laid it.

I should like to salute William Shakespeare.
In this language he's called Willie the Shake.

You know why they called him Willie the Shake?
Because he shook everybody.
They give him a nickel's worth of ink and five cents worth of paper,
he sat down, wrote up such a breeze, brrt, that's all there was, Jack,
there was no more.

That's all she wrote! Ever'body got off!

Got so many studs arguin' about findin' about who he was
they blew his right name.
Understand what I mean?

Here's a stud that's so powerful and so great
they dig him up every six months, say,
"Yeah, dat's him, put him back. He's alright."

Too hard a stud.

An' you remember when Mark was swingin' wid Cleo on da Nile,
cruisin' under that crazy moon, wit dis wild crazy Cleo.

Wheeeew. Hmmmmmm.

Hello friends.

And Caesar got all goofed up and swung in dere to Rome
and got into that hassle and they sliced him all down. You're......

Naturally the Roman Senate was jumpin' slightly all over the place,
so Mark had to cool it.

So he fell in on 'em, he says:

Hipsters, flipsters, and finger-poppin' daddies,
Knock me your lobes.
I came here to lay Caesar out,
Not to hip you to him.
The bad jazz that a cat blows,
Wails long after he's cut out.
The groovey, the groovey is often stashed
With their frames.
So don't put Caesar down.

To swing, or not to swing, that is the hang-up!

In my naïveté, I wrote the following only to realize that you guys are almost certainly referring to something else entirely. Rather than just delete it, I figured, what the hell, have a good laugh at my expense:

If you follow the link below you can see that Brussel Sprouts has insane amounts of vitamin K (& C).

I eat 2kg of BS a day, 6 days a week so I'm getting 1,500% (not a typo) more K than the RDA (which admittedly, should be taken with a grain of salt).

That said, can someone please explain the subtle references to vitamin K in this and other threads?

Specifically, what kind of benefits and what kind of quantity must be consumed to achieve said benefits? Are we talking pharmaceutical doses or is my 2 kg of BS per day enough?

For those of you wondering why I consume so much BS, it's because I want to be healthy but I just can't live without my weekly large, all dressed pizza with extra bacon and a 6 pack (or 2) to wash it down.

Consuming copious quantities of BS allows me to have my cake and eat it too, so to speak, because 2 kg of BS is only 940 calories and BS has more protein than almost any other vegetable besides green peas (which is technically a legume) so you can easily make it until dinner without the hunger pangs which would come with trying to live off any other veggie.

Dinners and Sundays I eat WTF I want but I don't look at all like a couch potato.

If any of you are trying to lose weight or not gain back any weight that you've lost I highly recommend you give this BS diet a shot.

For best results, BS should be steamed, not creamed.

Come out, come out where ever you are. You might live inside your head, but it seems I keep bumping into you there. I love this article more than you can know, or then again, maybe you are uniquely qualified to do so. I have always considered this one of my more abnormal abnormalities, and have been reluctant to acknowledge it. Your article let me understand that, not only is not abnormal, but that everyone lives their lives there. Albeit, some more than others, but we all do.

Do you talk to yourself a lot Les? my wife, along with others are constantly asking me who I'm talking to, and even though I have some awareness that I am doing it, I have never really acknowledged how much. I guess it's time to come clean and just tell them. It's the man inside my head dear!

I love epiphany. With all the examination that goes on inside my head of almost everything I learn, I have never examined the process of examining everything inside my head. The myriad scenarios that play out on a stage that only I can see. The vigorous discussions I have of the pros and cons of the subjects du jour.

I understand that recluse thing very well, and unlike so many that I know, I do very well all by myself. There are times when I actually prefer it. That quiet time to lose myself in the vast cavern of possibility my mind has become. It's amazing the wilderness of discovery one can create within, with those three magic words. The real life equivalent of abra cadabra, I don't know. Every time I am able to say those words, even if only inside my own head, new doors of discovery appear.

I still struggle with certain concepts, which by the very nature of concepts, all takes place inside my mind. However, having struggled with concepts before to a point of resolution, I don't know which I enjoy more, the struggle or the resolution...but...where was I..ah, concepts. Like where I fit in the big picture of life. I don't even know if I'm supposed to fit into the picture. Is this ride of life a roller coaster or a drive on a complex highway system. Is it all predetermined or do we have a choice of, not only where we go, but some influence over where others go as well. Sometimes I get the feeling that life shows us what's on the page, and after reading it we get this huh? look on our face, and life slaps us in the face with the page and says read it again. Are we on the verge of turning the page or another slap and re read. I don't know, but ain't it great. So much to learn and so little time, or is there too much? (grin)

Les, thanks once again for shining your light into dark places. This glimpse into the world inside your mind, has provided me a sunny day indeed.

Coletteonice, you are welcome for whatever it was I said that you found value in. I am always flattered and gratified when that happens. For now, I'm going to go feast on the food for thought Les has so graciously provided. Peace to you and all.

Get out of my head, man -grin- Yeah, something very similar to this discourse on the nature of belief, reality, the mind and the cosmos was going through my head not too long ago, a particularly strong current of inner dialogue around the same time this beautiful discourse was posted (if my leaky recollection is remotely correct).

I've been saying for a while now, when people ask me what my plans are: I don't make plans. No point. Universe is much smarter than I am, I tell them, so why should I try and out-think it? I can offer qualitative mathematical proofs for why this is impossible, and thus futile. Makes a lot more sense to me to just sort of flow with whatever Universe is doing. Because then you're not acting with whatever feeble force you can muster, but with the backing of the entire goddamn everything.

Of course you sort of have to take it on faith that the Universe really is an active, conscious entity, that it's not all just the random motions of particles colliding into each other. This is the sticking point for most people, I think, and without this faith it's virtually impossible to trust to the flow of the Tao. With it, and it gets easier every day until eventually you and it are inseparable, consciously so and then ... the world just sort of melts open....

Dearest Dog,

Two facthemorroids to chew on. I still take "anti-fluorescents." Why? If you look at the proza or some other "fact" shit that comes with the meds you will notice thyat under what not to take with them -- believe me or not -- it states eyeyuasca... Why"?? Because that is the active ingreasient.

I also still smoke smoke consistanley. Why? Mr. Jow Vialls -- before they "off"ered him -- states that in the early 50s "they" knew that the nuclear micro-dust reingning on us would cause lung cancer. Clear lungs effected death most efficiently. Vialls states that the mucous produced in the "lungos" fr4om smoking protecfied from certain death.

Ever wonder why Linda McCartney and a certain famous "screwsman" died of lung cancer even though they didn't smoke???

I was set on a quest to seek you out after reading recent tomes from the Time Monks. I ultimately found the Sirius Canine at the smoldering reflections blog and have spent the last two days reading your posts at both that site and here in Visible Origami - going back to early spring of this year.

I feel as though I have finally found the source of wisdom that I have been long in seeking, and that will eventually guide me through the process of resolving some of the questions I have had about the deeper issues faced in life. I have felt since I was in grade school that I was put here on this planet for a specific purpose. It took about 35 years between there and when I woke up about 2 years ago. I have been on a quest since my awakening to find some Truth about both; the nature of the force behind most of the problems being faced by mankind and the true nature of God and how I am supposed to serve his will. I truly believe that your posts are divinely inspired and will at least help guide my quest for answers to these and other questions.

I also believe that I have something important to either share with you or show you - which, I am not sure of and when I have no idea of either - soon I think, 'cause time is short.

This I can say for sure - your words are going to be heard by a large portion of the planet in the coming months and the more those words are heard the greater the negative feedback will be towards you from TPTB. Unfortunately for them they do not realize that just as you cannot get blood from a stone you also cannot silence the Truth or the Word. As you have rightly pointed out there are far too many MBA guru's and preachers in the world and as time has accelerated those with eyes have come to realize that the message coming from those of their ilk is not the true Word but a a false version of it, intended to enslave those that listen. This false message is a very sinister deception, and ultimately it is deadly to those that are deceived to believe it is the Truth.

I think I read in a comment here something to the effect that prophets come in mysterious and unexpected forms. I am convinced you are a manifestation of that observation.

Beware of temptation, seek the Truth and spread the Word.

I'll will be back in touch soon.

God Bless You,

Jeff (somewhere near Detroit)

I might mention here since someone posted about various concoctions for depression I have known people who did fine on SAM-E. It can be purchased in health food stores or Seventh Day Adventist stores even.

It is a natural substance which speeds up production of DNA in the bone marrow and consequently leads toward production of more serotonin. SAM-E is what your body is trying to produce anyway, why not help it along?

New studies are also showing that trytophan HTTP and Noni supplements work as well as pharma drugs which most of them are aspartame based.

Aspartame is the same neurotoxin in soft drinks. They say Michael J. Fox drank around 12 of these a day and look what it did to him.

I am not a doctor but many people have just decided to try and help themselves these days. Many docs receive bonuses for how much of certain products they prescribe.

The whole situation is a bit nasty if you ask me. They call for MRIs and so forth which are barium based. Nobody knows what barium does but it penetrates the blood brain barrier and it is supposedly contained in the chemtrails also.

Anyone having trouble along these lines it might be wise to keep away from cell phones and have a few crystals in your home to convert sounds waves back to something around 800 hrz. Crystals resonate at Schauberger resonance which is the natural frequency of the earth.

There is quite a bit of information about this on the internet if anyone is interested.

Dublin Mick;

I know you are one of the good guys but I suspect that you do not suffer depression. I have the clinical version. You might even call it existential despair but it hurts like a motherfucker in a sort of no way out no exit kind of way and I have taken every chemical I have heard of to address it but only K addresses it. And the proof in this which also has to do with my work is this. It has become unobtainable. I can get every other chemical on earth but not this one. That is proof of my contention but the Dog Poet will howl.

I was told some things tonight that took my pain away and I have nothing more to say.

Les I don't have depression other than the normal kind of watching what the world is coming to but I know people who have had it. I have seen SAM-E work. It is all a matter of producing enough serotonin.

I am talking about people very close to me also, close enough that I have done a lot of looking into what is going on with it.

You don't see a lot of this in the east because there is no attempt to poison people with aluminum cookware, aspartame, teflon and the list goes on as you well know.

The body works on energy same as a computer or electrical appliance. The energy must be transferred. What works for machines works for the ultimate machine. You need copper, iron, silver, bronze and other minerals to transfer it. Even gold. It is the king of minerals and most don't have enough in their system and most cannot afford monatomic gold sold in liquid these days but you can throw a jewish kadush cup in your water dispenser. I do and I am not Jewish.

It is best to cook in cast iron, copper and bronze pans. Many people in the west use aluminum, telfon etc and they do not conduct, they are poisonous as a matter of fact. They do not transfer the energy up the spine and through the brain.

Kundalini is what those more versed on this than me call it. This is the real value of gold and silver. We know also that silver is one of nature's best antibiotics along with being a good transfer metal.

I read once that Prince Charles according to his doctors had so much silver in his system most doctors would diagnose him with heavy metal poisoning. Why do you think the monarchs use silver chalices? They know it is good for them it is something the peasants need not worry themselves about however. I would take a look at this.

SAMe (known formally as S-adenosylmethionine) is not an herb or a hormone. It's a molecule that all living cells, including our own, produce constantly. To appreciate its importance, you need to understand a process called methylation (chart). It's a simple transaction in which one molecule donates a four-atom appendage—a so-called methyl group—to a neighboring molecule. Both the donor and the recipient change shape in the process, and the transformations can have far-reaching effects. Methylation occurs a billion times a second throughout the body, affecting everything from fetal development to brain function. It regulates the expression of genes. It preserves the fatty membranes that insulate our cells. And it helps regulate the action of various hormones and neurotransmitters, including serotonin, melatonin, dopamine and adrenaline. As biochemist Craig Cooney observes in his new book, "Methyl Magic," "Without methylation there could be no life as we know it."

"The SAMe solution has arrived. You don’t have to be depressed. You don’t have to see a doctor and wait for a prescription. You don’t have to suffer the miserable side effects of standard prescription antidepressants. You don’t have to endure weeks or months of waiting for your antidepressant drug to start working. You can stop your depression right now. In fact, you can feel much better in a matter of days. And you can find all the tools you need to conquer your depression quickly and safely right here in these pages. Stop Depression Now will introduce you to a breakthrough supplement called SAM-e (pronounced “sammy”) that is revolutionizing the treatment of depression and is about to change the lives of the millions of Americans battling this ailment."

"“Few Americans have heard of [SAMe] but it’s been used for two decades in Europe to treat... depression. A quick review of the medical literature shows why... SAMe appears effective against major depression as well as mild blues. It hasn’t been found to cause the side effects associated with prescription antidepressants... And it tends to work more quickly.” – Newsweek"

There is a well know doctor at Princeton who has prescribed only SAM-E for years and says it works better than anything he has ever seen with no side effects on the liver or other organs.

Of course you can never over estimate the value of finding a good woman who enjoys tantric yoga. That is the mother of all energy transfers to the brain.

It seems people are under attack from all different directions these days and another one of them is wifi and cellphone towers as well as chemtrails.

I don't use cell phones but they have stuck a wifi tower right on top of me. You can't sell a house these days either. Looking into it you probably have about six years before cancer clusters set in so I am not sure how long I will be around.

A petition of 68 home owners I put together saying they didn't want it did not phase them down at the podunk city hall. There (technical expert) would not even come out to receive it. I left it with the secretary.

Here is some boys fighting the good fight against wifi and cell phone transmissions however.

Never underestimate the damage a cellphone of wifi can do as far as sending people into depression either. Those frequencies replace natural earth resonance. Microwave can definitely produce depression.

Before I retired a they gave us cellphones. I would get in the car and my partner would sometimes ask did you bring your cell phone? I always told him yours is good enough I am not into brain cancer and he would just laugh.

Shortly after I retired he had to also, tumor of the brain right beside the ear where he kept the phone. He had to learn to walk all over again after it was cut out. He came out O.K. but I did tell him you know we talked about all this but you just weren't a good listener. He could still laugh about it though.

Re: Depression, may I suggest 2 books. "The Diet Cure", and "The Mood Cure"---Julia Ross (search for her web site)

Personal experience with people close to me has shown that, if followed, depression, etc. can be cured through the regimen in these books.
From 5HTP, to L-Tyrosine, as well as others, you can find the way out naturally.

Bhagavad-gītā As It Is 3.43

evaḿ buddheḥ paraḿ buddhvā

saḿstabhyātmānam ātmanā

jahi śatruḿ mahā-bāho

kāma-rūpaḿ durāsadam


Thus knowing oneself to be transcendental to the material senses, mind and intelligence, O mighty-armed Arjuna, one should steady the mind by deliberate spiritual intelligence [Kṛṣṇa consciousness] and thus — by spiritual strength — conquer this insatiable enemy known as lust.


This Third Chapter of the Bhagavad-gītā is conclusively directive to Kṛṣṇa (God) consciousness by knowing oneself as the eternal servitor of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, without considering impersonal voidness the ultimate end.

In the immature stage of material existence, philosophical speculations and artificial attempts to control the senses by the so-called practice of yogic postures can never help a man toward spiritual life. He must be trained in Kṛṣṇa (God) consciousness by higher intelligence.

Hi Les, best

Interesting article. A lot of people feel they just HAVE to be right, no matter what. They'lle argue at the drop of a hat with anyone who makes an assertion in their presence.
It's how to respond to such folks I find a bit puzzling. It depends on my mood, sometimes I'll say "Well, that's your opinion", other times I'll say "Think what you like" or maybe I'll just be silent. Once in awhile I'll play the game and make effort to if not convince then overwhelm the person with information.
One time I got an interesting response. I asked the person I had a difference with to explain why he felt a need to debate or argue about something that I knew he, mostly, agreed with me on. He said "Sometimes I could use being convinced when I'm not totally sure"

Maybe sometimes some people who claim to know are also saying, in an unspoken way, that they want or could use being persuaded otherwise?

Not sure what kind of turn we took there? I have found over the years that 99.9% of the people going around explaining how to be illuminated or enlightened are never enlightened themselves.

I have met and read hundreds of them. They can tell you how it is supposed to be done but it seems it hasn't worked for them yet.

I am going to break ranks here and say just one thing on the subject. The best course on enlightenment is talk to somebody who is and ask them how best to go about it. You will usually find these types in a temple.

I have a copy of the Gita also but it is just a book nothing more, a very special one but nevertheless a book.

The giant monuments thousands of feet high in Vedic civilization of India displaying oceans of people in tantric positions are simply a guide post also but a hint hard to ignore don't you think?

There is a vast difference in a sacred ritual than trying to pick up somebody at burger king.

The way to overcome the cosmic ocean is to plunge into it, you are part of it yet not a part of it. That is probably all that needs to be said here.

Nothing tops SAM-E but I take noni supplements myself. The Hawaiians crossed thousands of miles of ocean in canoes with only noni seeds as food.

Noni has been called the Hawaiian medicine cabinet as they treat everything with it.

“Recent evidence (2003) indicates that Noni* works directly on the central nervous system freely passing the blood brain barrier and affective neurotransmitter binding sites such for dopamine and nicotine. The overall effect is to return the body to it's normal healthy balance” -statement from Dr. Richard Troelstrup PhD, Current University of Hawaii Professor, 40 year research career National Institute of Health."

These essential items included twenty seven plants, which became known as “Canoe Plants”. Fourteen Ire foods such as taro, ‘ulu (breadfruit),nui (coconut), the others Ire for construction like wood, vines, tapa (cloth). Perhaps the most important singular plant in this group of essentials “Healing” plants brought from Polynesia and the South Pacific Islands was the Noni la'au plant. Through the ensuing generations Noni has been a critical healing herb and mainstay in Hawaiian healing practice and tradition."

The Bhagavad Gita, quite properly, is also considered a deity.

One day, after the Pandavas had defeated the Kauravas in the Battle of Kurukshetra, Arjuna was riding on his chariot with his friend, Sri Krishna. They were riding through some gardens by the bank of the Yamuna. Arjuna had, however, developed some pride: ‘I am very wise. Krishna personally imparted this gita-jnana (wisdom of the Gita) to me.’ He had developed some pride in his heart.

Krishna, being the Supersoul in the hearts of all living beings, understood that Arjuna had developed some pride. Krishna will not tolerate pride in the heart of His devotee. If he detects that his devotee has developed pride, He smashes that devotee’s pride. That is His mercy.

As they were passing the Yamuna, they noticed a jackal moving around. Out of pride, Arjuna made some derogatory remarks: ‘That jackal is a great fool. He is moving around that dead body, simply sniffing, but not eating it. If some dogs come now, he will run away. He is a fool, bereft of knowledge.’ Krishna stopped the chariot and summoned the jackal. The jackal came. Krishna asked the jackal, ‘O jambuka (jackal), the body of this dead human is your food. Why are you circling this body and not eating it?’ The jackal replied, ‘O my Lord, You are all-knowing. What shall I say? Even though this is my food, I still have some discrimination over what I eat and won’t eat.’ Krishna said, ‘You have some discrimination?’ The jackal replied, ‘Yes.’ ‘What is that’, asked Lord Krishna. The jackal said, ‘Since You are asking, my Lord, I will answer. From the smell of his legs, I can tell if this human being ever walked to Jagannath Puri Dhama, Vrindavan or Mayapur. By smelling his hands, I can tell if this person ever offered puja, worship, to Sri Bhagavan or not. From smelling his eyes, I can tell whether or not this person ever saw a sadhu or the Deity in the Temple. By smelling his head, I can understand if this person ever bowed down to a Vaishnava or Deity. By smelling his ears, I can tell if he ever heard krishna-katha. It is by scent that I can tell all of these things. If he has not performed any of these activities, I won’t eat such impure food. And, if one or more of his limbs – a hand, a leg, or an ear – has performed some devotional act, then I will eat only that portion.’ The jackal then said, ‘My Lord, I am in the body of a beast. My consciousness is very covered. I cannot perform any dharma. The only piety I can perform is by eating.’

Lord Krishna said to the jackal, ‘O jambuka, all glories to you. You are My devotee.’ On hearing these words, Arjuna was amazed. ‘This jackal has such knowledge. I was thinking myself to be a great jnani and a great bhakta, but this jackal is greater than I am!

In this way, Krishna smashed Arjuna’s pride because Arjuna is his dear devotee.

I don't know but I want to. We see 'truth' all day, every day around us and don't see it. Truth is revealed to those who seek/see it. Sometimes you just need to ask.

In limitation there is a desire to know. It's there whether it is acknowledged or ignored.

That said, what the heck was it Les, your guest from Sweden was depressed about to say "Well, this depresses me. If it's true then we're screwed, aren't we?."
