A PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT

Public Service Announcement


14 April 2014

Visible is moving home April 15th 2014.

At the same time, all his blogs - including this one, will be relocating, too; this means that soon this page will disappear - as will all other pages on Vis' sites. The move (the blogs' move that is, not lord Visible's) is expected to take somewhere between 3 and 8 Earth days so should complete some time between 18 and 25 April 2014.

The blogs will remain accessible however, on their old blogspot.com URLS, and here is where you are going to find them - so please bookmark the following links!


Reflections in a Petri Dish
Smoking Mirrors
Visible Origami


Please also be aware that although all the existing blogs' content will remain accessible, many image links and other bits and pieces may look a bit tatty for the duration of the move (not that anyone visits Vis blogs for pretty pictures anyway, but it's just polite to let you know)



Thank you for bearing with us during the move!

There can be no Darkness more Powerful than Light

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

I don’t know if conditions and events come in waves or cycles. Maybe they come in cycles and there are waves within them or maybe there is cycling going on in the waves; like the Tour De France under water or something. What I do know is that things come and go and sometimes the same kinds of events and conditions pop up all over the place. It happens in the world and it probably happens in outer space. I know it happens in inner space and I know it happens at blogs.

I know at these blogs, as I have observed in my life, that sometimes those events and conditions are triggered by me and sometimes not. Sometimes I trigger them intentionally and sometimes not. I haven’t figured out what to do about any of it. I haven’t figured out what to call the ineffable divine or what shape or personality to keep in mind because that changes too. What I have discovered is that just keeping it in mind seems to work better than running around confused about what he or she is. I’ve been given to understand that I will never figure that out anyway and that all I do know about the matter usually explains itself in human terms or some element of Nature, unless the super conscious comes into play and then it’s all about serpents. They coil up and that could imply cycles but they also move in waves so... let’s not get any further up the road with this at the moment.

In the blog world just like in real life, sometimes we’re on the mark and sometimes we’re not. In these days there are a lot of people running around calling themselves ‘healers’ but they aren’t healing anybody, not even themselves. There are a lot of people running around calling themselves teachers and sometimes they teach you something and usually, in the process, they teach you about themselves too. Hard times are circling the planet and suffering seems to be at an all time high. Hypocrisy and self interest are epidemic and even in the midst of great tragedies you see them as the greatest by product.

It’s easy to become depressed and looking forward the indication is that much worse is on the horizon. I’ve seen these things come and go in my own life and buckled beneath the weight of it a couple of times in recent memory.

In the process of going through what I have had to go through, or put myself through I’ve resorted to a number of different practices in hopes of keeping certain forces at bay. It’s hard to know if these forces are visiting themselves upon you from external locations or rising up from within. We are told that the planets which pass by one another in the solar system create aspects which affect the human condition in positive and negative ways. We are told these planets are also located within us in locations known as chakras or ‘interior stars’. Depending on when we were born and where we are at the time, different pressures come upon us. I’ve looked into this science and come to believe there’s something to it but when you consult people who have studied this science of planetary relationships you never hear the same thing from any two of them. What is one to think?

I’ve studied the various religious traditions and their exoteric and esoteric aspects and I’ve spent considerable time studying certain hidden traditions and there are similarities in all of them but all of them are different. I’ve studied with certain teachers from different traditions; in person and at a distance through their written works. Some of them had already departed long before I got here this time so there was no great chance of running into them, although I did manage to meet some of them on other planes of being for brief periods of time and I have had the sense of being overshadowed by entities on occasion who have advised and protected me. At least it seemed so. Still, I don’t know much more about any of it; how or why it happens.

These teachers had different perspectives and ways of saying and doing things. I’ve looked into teachers whose work had no affect on me at all and quite the opposite at other times. Others have gotten a great deal from the former, or say they have and nothing from the latter. Life’s a big place. Death is a mystery. Birth is at one end and death at the other and I suppose that implies cycles or waves again. I don’t see much that moves in a straight line for too long before it bends one way or another and I suspect that should tell us something if we were inclined to listen.

For as long as recorded history has been around there have been orders, brotherhoods, schools of thought, which have influenced the human theater of operations. Some of them are secret societies that involve initiation rites and levels of awareness that go deeper and deeper into the peculiar path or understanding upon which they are based. These days there are an increasing number of people who think all of these societies are evil. The ancient sign of an awakened kundalini has come to signify evil because certain corrupt leaders are seen flashing what is called, ‘the Devil’s Horns’. I’ve been taught that everything the dark side has appropriated, it has stolen from the fellowships of light and then perverted the knowledge for purposes of self-interest or harm to others.

It stands to reason that, if there are dark fellowships, then there must be fellowships of light. It stands to reason just the same way that day follows night. However, these days there are more and more people who believe all these organizations are evil. I’ve heard people say that the Tibetan lamas were evil and it was a good thing the Chinese got after them; as if the Chinese brought something better to Tibet afterwards.

I’ve had people get after me for embracing Eastern Thought because there is some kind of rule I never heard of which demands I stay within the precepts of Western thought, which leaves me cold. I’ve noticed an increasing cynicism, accompanied by a perception of knowing everything, without even having experienced it. I could go on at length about the things I notice and observe but I’ve done that already more times than I can remember.

What I have found lately and been aware of for a lot of my life is that the real teachers, traditions and fellowships, known and unknown, have only one purpose and that is to bring you into the presence of the divine within you. They accomplish this in many different ways. Sometimes they hit you with a bamboo stick and sometimes they trigger awareness through a sequence of thought. Sometimes they get you there by removing thought altogether. I’ve noticed that a few people seem to get it but most don’t. Most just want to hang around the teacher as if somehow the presence within was the presence without. I can understand how they might be both but it does seem to me that the primary thing of value is what awakens or comes forward from within.

I think I’ve had several purposes in mind in writing this today/this evening. One of them is to say that I am finding an increasing comfort in simply practicing presence without much attending it in terms of ritual or tradition. I keep bringing my mind back to it whatever I am doing and reminding myself that I’m not actually doing anything; that there’s only one primary mover.

I keep reminding myself that I don’t actually know anything. I don’t know if the hidden government actually caused the Haitian earthquake. I don’t doubt their capacity for violence on a massive scale. You can see what they’ve done in Iraq and Afghanistan. There’s no doubt that there are some bad- or miss-’guided’ people around. We are in a dark age and the appearance of darkness is greater than the appearance of light. This, by no means, is evidence that the darkness is stronger than the light. Any time light appears the darkness recedes. The trick of it is to have a light. If you don’t, then the darkness could appear to overwhelm you, make you believe you were like it or manipulate you through fear of it.

If you had that light, which I think of in terms of the awakened divine within, then you wouldn’t need to be concerned with the darkness unless you set your light aside, or didn’t have a light... unless you were following someone with a light... like a teacher, perhaps. Still, it’s so much better to have your own light, which you only get by a continuous practice of the presence. It’s kind of like a bicycle generator if you are peddling around at night, which seems to imply some effort on our part or maybe it only seems like that because as long as we think we’re peddling there’s effort in it and maybe even personal satisfaction too and maybe that leads into darkness, I just don’t know.

I get so tired of hearing about how evil everyone is. I get tired of hearing that everyone I ever mention; someone thinks is a tool of the darkness. They can’t all be tools of the darkness. All these societies can’t be devilish. It doesn’t work like that. I think people are gravely misleading themselves by knowing everything all the time, including people they’ve never met, places they’ve never been and things they’re never done. I’m going to try to undo my knowing with a little positive unknowing and the greater presence of what we must all be in truth once we let this little self ...and what little it thinks it knows ...let go into that greater self that knows it all.... governs it all and composes it all and is the very essence of light.

Hi Les,

I have heard you say sometimes, "I simply do not know" or something to that effect and I think you are spot on. We feel certain things and our intuition bears a certain amount of fruit but when we engage the grey mattter and apply logic, things sometimes go astray in our thinking because we start to think we have somehow latched on to something, only to find a dead end because we "don't know". My understanding is that this is where faith comes in specifically faith in the ineffable.

Destiny is the map you cannot read.

Thank you for sharing your thoughts, it helps the rest of us think too.

I hope Poncho is okay.

All the best

Jim

Visible said...

Poncho is fine. We suspect it was the pest collar he was wearing (flea and tick) that triggered it. I removed it and there's been no episodes since.

I believe Black has passed though because I've been round several times with a treat but he's not there.

I've got the Zio-bots flooding me with negative commentary and all pretending to be someone else. I'm surprised it took so long (grin).

Pstonie said...

Since I've started paying attention to world events a wave pattern has definitely occurred to me, and to me the frequency seems to be growing.

As for HAARP, I was thinking that maybe they're keeping a lid on what should be hitting California rather than causing quakes elsewhere. Who knows?

I think I know what you're getting at with the light and dark orders. One thing that I learned from being an IT consultant is that people tend to notice negative things a lot more than they do the positive, regardless of the balance that may exist between the two in actuality. A user for instance will have 1,000,001 things working correctly on their PCs, things they don't think about because they take them for granted. But if just one of those stops working it can ruin their day and that of everyone who's unfortunate enough to come into contact with them. The way our heads work are opposed to being content and at peace.

dear les,
well done my old friend and spiitual brother. your thoughts and feelings and your conclusions that you have expresssed here in this post are, for all intent and purposes, virtually identical to my own.

and btw, i've been reading & watching things unfold here recently - you know, the supposed HPB 'evil' thing, and also that woman in brazil & the guy in london matter), and of course all of the attended reactions and posturing of various commenters. and well, i am just glad you have now finally delivered some clarity, wisdom, humility and sobriety.

also, i want you to know that i had desired to sincerely offer my heart and hand to you again (via private email) in the spirit of that deep and true friendship that you and and i once shared long ago - and especially during your recent apparently intense period of personal crisis - but i sensed that it would likely get lost in the shuffle and whirlwind of confusion. so i am taking this opportunity now - via this latest blog post of yours - to reconnect again. the remainder of what i have to say is more personal and so i will send to you via your gmail sometime in the next few days. its important to me, so please tune in and be on the lookout for my message. omsatnam. love, JD

I have noticed a definite increase in Hasbarat activity almost in tune with the increase in the F16's dropping bombs on Gaza. They are definitely pulling out all the stops, even I have had an 'edna' on my facebook page because my mate tagged a boycott 729 barcode picture to me. No talking to those people so hey, why bother?

Flea collar, huh. I must tell my parents to watch out. Shame about Black, he sounded like a great neighbour to have. Easier to deal with than people....we have a cat called Prince next door and he acts like a dog rather than a cat. He certainly lives up to his name!

I have always felt that animals are our first line of defence, they are so aware. My parents have a Heinz 57 variety called Panda (picture on my facebook), small dog. He barks when the phone rings as they are getting old and don't always hear the ring and picks up his lead when he needs a walk. Panda is also vicious at times, very protective which helps me as I am here in the UK and they are in Ireland.

Blessings come in all shapes and sizes!

Take care

Jim

Todd said...

This was in my inbox this AM & I thought it was timely and supported your line of thought...

"When you are afraid of anything, you are acknowledging its power to hurt you. Remember that where your heart is, there is your treasure also. This means that you believe in what you value. If you are afraid, you are valuing wrongly. Human understanding will inevitably value wrongly and, by endowing all human thoughts with equal power, will inevitably destroy peace. That is why the Bible speaks of "The peace of God which passeth (human) understanding." This peace is totally incapable of being shaken by human errors of any kind. It denies the ability of anything which is not of God to affect you in any way.


19

This is the proper use of denial. It is not used to hide anything but to correct error. It brings all error into the light, and since error and darkness are the same, it corrects error automatically. True denial is a powerful protective device. You can and should deny any belief that error can hurt you. This kind of denial is not a concealment device but a correction device. The "right mind" of the mentally healthy depends on it. You can do anything I ask. I have asked you to perform miracles and have made it clear that miracles are natural, corrective, healing, and universal. There is nothing good they cannot do, but they cannot be performed in the spirit of doubt.


20 God and the Souls He created are completely dependent on each other. The creation of the Soul has already been perfectly accomplished, but the creation by Souls has not. God created Souls so He could depend on them because He created them perfectly. He gave them His peace so they could not be shaken and would be unable to be deceived. Whenever you are afraid, you are deceived. Your mind is not serving the Soul. This literally starves the Soul by denying its daily bread. God offers only mercy. Your words should reflect only mercy because that is what you have received, and that is what you should give."

Todd said...

21 Justice is a temporary expedient or an attempt to teach man the meaning of mercy. Its judgmental side arises only because man is capable of injustice if that is what his mind creates. You are afraid of God's Will because you have used your own will, which He created in the likeness of His own, to miscreate. What you do not realize is that the mind can miscreate only when it is not free. An imprisoned mind is not free by definition. It is possessed or held back by itself. Its will is therefore limited and is not free to assert itself. The real meaning of "are of one kind," which was mentioned before, is "are of one mind or will." When the will of the Sonship and the Father are one, their perfect accord is Heaven.



22 Denial of error is a powerful defense of truth. You will note that we have been shifting the emphasis from the negative to the positive use of denial. As we have already stated, denial is not a purely negative device; it results in positive miscreation. That is the way the mentally ill do employ it. But remember a very early thought of your own-"Never underestimate the power of denial." In the service of the "right mind," the denial of error frees the mind and reestablishes the freedom of the will. When the will is really free, it cannot miscreate because it recognizes only truth.



23 False projection arises out of false denial, not out of its proper use. My own role in the Atonement is one of true projection; I can project to you the affirmation of truth. If you project error to me or to yourself, you are interfering with the process. My use of projection, which can also be yours, is not based on faulty denial. It does involve, however, the very powerful use of the denial of errors. The miracle worker is one who accepts my kind of denial and projection, unites his own inherent abilities to deny and project with mine, and imposes them back on himself and others. This establishes the total lack of threat anywhere. Together we can then work for the real time of peace, which is eternal.



24 The improper use of defenses is quite widely recognized, but their proper use had not been sufficiently understood as yet. They can indeed create man's perception both of himself and of the world. They can distort or correct depending on what you use them for.



25 Denial should be directed only to error, and projection should be reserved only for truth. You should truly give as you have truly received. The Golden Rule can work effectively only on this basis.



26 Intellectualization is a term which stems from the mind-brain confusion. "Right-mindedness" is the device which defends the right mind and gives it control over the body. "Intellectualization" implies a split, while "right-mindedness" involves healing.

Todd said...

27 Withdrawal is properly employed in the service of withdrawing from the meaningless. It is not a device for escape, but for consolidation. There is only One Mind.



28 Dissociation is quite similar. You should split off or dissociate yourself from error but only in defense of integration.



29 Detachment is essentially a weaker form of dissociation.



30 Flight can be undertaken in whatever direction you choose, but note that the concept itself implies flight from something. Flight from error is perfectly appropriate.



31 Distantiation can be properly used as a way of putting distance between yourself and what you should fly from.



32 Regression is an effort to return to your own original state. It can thus be utilized to restore, rather than to go back to the less mature.



33 Sublimation should be a redirection of effort to the sublime.



34 There are many other so-called "dynamic" concepts which are profound errors due essentially to the misuse of defenses. Among them is the concept of different levels of aspiration, which actually result from level confusion. However, the main point to be understood from this section is that you can defend truth as well as error and, in fact, much better.



35 The means are easier to clarify after the value of the goal itself is firmly established. Everyone defends his own treasure. You do not have to tell him to do so because he will do it automatically. The real questions still remain. What do you treasure, and how much do you treasure it? Once you have learned to consider these two questions and to bring them into all your actions as the true criteria for behavior, I will have little difficulty in clarifying the means. You have not learned to be consistent about this as yet. I have therefore concentrated on showing you that the means are available whenever you ask. You can, however, save a lot of time if you do not extend this step unduly. The correct focus will shorten it immeasurably.

This from "A Course In Miracles", one of my favorite guidebooks. Bless you Les for your heartfelt outpourings, I love being here with you and admire your courage in doing so. Namaste my brother..

Les said; I’m going to try to undo my knowing with a little positive unknowing

I think I will join you. Besides, I am sick to death of the www and all the shit I have learned or not learned, dew to the fact that there is so much shit on it. It seems the more I learn the less I know. I remember a time when I was a peace with "God" normally this was during times of silent prayer where I would shut-up and just listen. Other times I just prised Him for being whom He is in my simple way of thinking. It was during these times that I got my answers and found some favour with Him. I think I will try going back there.
I consider my self a truth seeker and to be fair I have found out a few things from the www that I would otherwise not have known. That said; most of the stuff I read or “learn” seems to fill me with despair and a feeling that I am in a real dark place. I now try to limit myself to 3 or 4 sites, yours being one of them, but often times I go chasing after answers from all different sorts of places and end up more confused than I was before I started looking. There are so many opinions out there and everyone believes theirs is right one. I am guilty of this myself, so I suppose I know where they are coming from. I do the rounds looking into different prophecies from a Christian prospective and can’t find two that agree. Most non-Catholic Christians are waiting for“rapture” and some are proactive in trying to hasten its arrival which, in my eyes, isn’t a good thing. Others, well what can I say, I won’t bore you with the details. The truth is, like you, I really don’t know the answer and, it seems, neither does anyone else. I am glad you reminded me of this.
I have been watching and reading the shit flying around you for the past few days and all I can say is hang in there. I will pray for you.
Your friend

Yes GG...

That seems to be what I'm getting too.

Raven123. It's time for me to go to bed and it is there where I am headed this minute so... not at the moment.

I stay away from chat rooms and don't really have the time and right now I am really pressed in certain ways because I have to accomplish a great deal in the next few weeks and still do the radio shows (tomorrow)... near daily blog entries (after this brief hiatus... answer a ton of emails (which I haven't answered hardly any in two weeks and many people must be a little disappointed in me and a host of other things.

Perhaps after this two weeks there might be time but it would probably be a one off because I it just isn't something I do. It's hard enough doing everything else and now I've got these trolls too. I've stopped reading their emails which is a good thing and I'm not letting them on the boards.

Good night all.

Go ahead and post, I'll put them up in the morning between the tea and meditation and the chain saw work following.

yes the light melts the darkness

It has to be your life that shows forth God. Otherwise, God’s work has failed, because the miracle isn’t going to happen
out in the air, the miracle is going to happen in your experience; and the miracle will be God revealing Itself,

God “closer than
breathing,” God as a better experience, God bringing another section of the world into the worship of one power.
…So, as we awaken in the morning, we turn to It in the realization, “This is Your day, this is Your life, this is Your
business, this is Your ministry, and I am Your servant; so let’s get together. Then, as you face this day with these different truths,


you will find that always this Presence will make Itself so clear since you will know what to do and when to do it and where to
do it. Oh, in the early stages we make mistakes. If you don’t, I did! But, as a rule, we make lots of mistakes, because we do not
rightfully hear or interpret the Word or the Spirit. But of this you may be assured that no harm will be done. Never fear to
make a mistake; never. Never be afraid to make a mistake, because It will correct it before any great harm is done. …

Obey
your highest impulse, and then, if for any reason it turns out that you have misinterpreted It, It will correct it before any damage
can be done.
Well, that is the part that concerns the letter of truth, that is one-half of our Message. The other half concerns the spirit of
truth, or the consciousness of truth. It is this second-half which accounts for whatever measure of success comes into our life

through this Message. The first half only leads to the second half. It is the second half that really brings the success. In other
words, now that we know … I’m assuming that we now know that there is only one power and that there is no use in going to
God to get Him to do something for us (whatever God is going to do, He is already doing, and we just leave Him do it). We
know, now, that there is only one power, and we know also that there is only one law, so we’ve lost all fear, now, of material
law, mental law, even legal law, because we have complete confidence, now, in Spirit, God as the law-giver and the law.

We have learned, too, in this year, that Christ is individual identity, yours and mine, his and hers, saint and sinner. So that, we
have learned in this year to consciously look about us in our families, in our marketing, in our shopping, in our business life and
our professional life, and learn not to judge people by what they appear to be outwardly, but to have a secret place within
ourselves wherein we look at each other and realize, “Just think. There is divinity. There is the very Christ of God. Sitting behind
those eyes is the very Christ of God. The Soul of God looks right out from those very eyes.” Now, that was part of our lesson
last night, of the Ninth Commandment:

“Never bear false witness against thy neighbor.” And every time you say that your
neighbor is a human being, even a good one, or a healthy one, or a wealthy one, you are bearing false witness. You are only
bearing witness to truth when you say of your neighbor, “He is the Son of God,” or “She is the Daughter of God, the Child of
God,” and “We are of the household of God, all One, heirs, joint-heirs with the Christ in God.” Then are you bearing witness to
spiritual truth, and you will find that it will take less than one week for the people of this world to change their attitude toward
you. The very moment that you stop seeing people as human beings … the moment you give that up and abide in the realization


that the Soul of God looks out of every pair of eyes, it will be less than a week until you find that people will be responding to
you in a different way.

As that noble bard of yesterday, James Russell Lowell, eloquently stated:

Once to every man and nation
Comes the moment to decide,
In the strife of truth and falsehood,
For the good or evil side;
Some great cause, God's new Messiah,
Off'ring each the bloom or blight,
And the choice goes by forever
Twixt that darkness and that light.

Though the cause of evil prosper,
Yet 'tis truth alone is strong;
Though her portion be the scaffold,
And upon the throne be wrong:
Yet that scaffold sways the future,
And behind the dim unknown,
Standeth God within the shadow
Keeping watch above his own.

It's good to see you feeling all right again, Les. I resonate so strongly with Visible Origami, it's like reading the thoughts I (or an older, wiser me) might be having if I weren't so good at distracting myself.

Namaste, my brother. Thank you.

psychegram said...

You've across Benjamin Fulford's work, I take it? He claims to be the Ambassador to the West for an ancient Eastern secret society, which he first called the 'Red and Green Society' and now refers to as the 'Black Dragon Society'. Perhaps the BDS precedes the RGS, I'm not clear on this. At any rate they are, he says, now quite fully as global as the Illuminati but aimed at rather different ends: the inauguration of a new Golden Age.

Yeah, but the symbolism say Icke or Tsarion might associate with a 'Black Dragon' isn't exactly encouraging, ie 'reptialians'. Also there's the issue that, according to Fulford, the Rothschilds for instance are fully on board with this new Chinese plan (they're being bought off with assurances that they'll get to keep the palaces and servants). I'm not sure if I can fully trust anything those blood-soaked demons are participating in.

At the same time, though, part of me is really intrigued, thrilled really, by the idea of an ancient order of white-hat ninjas who are fighting in the shadows for the good guys ... and Fulford's explanation of the 'let's get everyone talking at the round table' mentality of the Black Dragon Society as the reason why the Rothschilds have been let in ... it makes sense, much as I hate to type that.

Thank you once again Brother Les. Just picking up on the "spiritual brother" comment above. Yeah, that's what I feel for you, a spiritual kinship.

Les, some people pretend to know everything. Some know enough to be humbled, some don't know enough to know they should learn some more.
What one should know and must aknoledge is to keep the enemy on the outside, outside his ring of light. At some point you should know for sure if you are doing the right thing (as the right thing to do in this or that particular circomstances without loosing the coherent threid of thaughts). For that you need help, for that you need law not opinions. For that you need a book of conduct.
I have one.

"Cognitive dissonance is a psychological phenomenon which refers to the discomfort felt at a discrepancy between what you already know or believe, and new information or interpretation."

-- -- -- -- --

I am wondering how long the pain of cognitive dissonance lasts? As the realization goes deeper, of how much their lies twist our lives, the discomfort also goes to new levels.

Had it not been for the advent of the Internet I would have gone to the grave ignorant of much suppressed/perverted Truth; believing lies, lies and more damned lies, as generations before me have.

It is probably not possible to get at all the Truth anyway, but the as-yet uncensored Internet affords one the opportunity to expose lies - massive, decades-long BIG lies, as well as their much more recent offerings, eg. 9/11.

What has happened for me is that certain events, for example 9/11, have been exposed for what they really are, via the uncensored Internet.

The image comes to mind of us stumbling around blindfolded in a maze. Blindfolded by their suppression and perversion of Truth, lost in the maze created by their lies.

Les, your blog has helped me to see some important things more clearly.

Thanks.

p.s. Sorry to hear the Parasite Defense Force have "discovered" you. I don't think hanging up the Unwelcome sign will mean much to them.

It was good to wake up and get educated but now I also need to remember to lay in the grass and stare at the stars ....don't lost the wonder and awareness of all that is possibly good.
Luv to ya

when we watch a child trying to walk, we see its countless failures; its successes are few. If we had to limit our observation within a narrow space of time, the sight would be cruel. But we find that in spite of its repeated failures, there is an impetus of joy in the child that sustains it in its seemingly impossible task. We see it does not think of its falls as much as of its power to keep its balance, though only for a moment.
Like these accidents in a child's attempts to walk, we meet with sufferings in various forms in our life every day, showing the imperfections in our knowledge and our available power and in the application of our will. But if these revealed our weakness to us only, we should die of utter depression. When we select for observation a limited area of our activities, our individual failures and miseries loom large in our minds, but our life leads us instinctively to take a wider view. It gives us an ideal of perfection that always carries us beyond our present limitations."
-Rabindranath Tagore

Gretings Les! Good to hear that your doggy has found his legs again.

All the best...

Mr. Visible:

I've read you for a long time, but have never posted a comment.

Our lives are somewhat similar: origin, peregrinations, and destination (figuratively and objectively - the further and the farther).

Anyway, I just wanted to tell you that that was one of the most important, and beautiful things you've ever written. Well done.

From another from the same place and destination, best wishes always.

P.S. I'll now get back to my Primodial Gnosticism and Jnana Yoga.

It's all symbols and signs
Twilight langauge riddled with rhymes
There's no such thing as a straight line
Everything is entwined
So what's reality
How's it defined
This is what you get when the blind lead the blind

yep

It's a riddle and it keeps getting deeper
You're not only in jail you're also your own keeper
And if you're not on the fiddle you're the piggy in the middle and they just gave the thumbscrews another little twiddle

If you ask me the answers got to be
We'll just have to wait and see

Les,

We all have a light. The problem is we want to have it in hand before the darkness arrives.

It doesn't work that way. You don't get the light,until your tested. Then it appears, you need faith.

Les,

As it pertains to the zio-bots,

Revel in glory when the minions of the anti-Christ hound you or falsely accuse you of anti-semitism.

You stand in great company of One, whom they similarly falsely accused some 2010 years Ago.

Flea solution - when I lived in Ohio fleas were a real problem. I discoverd a solution. I would take orange peels and put them in a blender with water and blend it up. then take a stocking ( not mine :) and put the pulp in the taocking. then rub down the dog with it and it kills the fleas instantly. You then ahve to wash the dog but they are flea free.

Agent provocateur activity has been very high lately. Almost every chat room and forum that I have seen is filled with soulless shriveled parasites just waiting for an arterial vein beneath a warm fold some gullible sigmoid to latch on to. Not to indulge these morons, but they are probably teenager(s) who spend their entire night harassing people in World of Warcraft, and during the day time aimlessly wander in herds in search of masterpieces and priceless artwork to burn. I guess the best reaction would be to ignore them. They have exhausted their self esteem and integrity to the point where they redundantly push people’s buttons only to imagine themselves as Gods when they get the slightest reaction.


Who knows, maybe somewhere deep down they are bigger and brighter than that. In time maybe they will see the inherent truth and beauty that is interwoven within the parables of your words and ideas. Maybe I’m just a dreamer… but anyone who actually hates you, or plays games like this must be a very sad minority. Like all of us, they are at a different stage of awareness and awareness will not arise out of dung hurling. I realize some of the things in this post aren’t very bright, and it goes to show that I’m not the brightest, but I appreciate what you say and do Les and it inspires me. It really makes me angry to hear how people treat you. When they treat you like that, it’s like they treat all of us like that. Shame on them, and shame on us for buying into it. If we can live up to even one ounce of what you, man’s best friend, have provided, the world would be a far better place.

Greetings Les,

Hope you and all your loved ones are well.

Most humans tend to complicate their lives, when it is the simplistic approach to the universe that will eventually bring the human race into a new timeline that they are destined to achieve. It is the unknown that humans fear, and the uncertainty of the future that hinders humanity from freeing itself to a new level of understanding of the universe. Until recently, scientists thought all dark space was just that,empty, with no purpose, but there is no such thing as nothingness. Everything is connected and serves a purpose.

As you say, the key is to look inward, not outward at what seems like a chaotic world.The intellect, with all its learning and ideas will not navigate mankind to a new existance, it will be the inner light as you say, that will lead mankind.

It is but the final act of this play, where the human race will finally go from crawling on this wondrous blue planet, to finally standing upright to begin the next journey. Where humans will finally be walking amongst the rest of the civilizations of the multiverse.

One must not get intertwined with the negative influences that are playing out around them. Clear the intellect of all the outside clutter. Look inwards and believe that the purity of ones heart, and the love that eminates from the heart, will finally connect to others of the same belief. Then ones own high frequency of inner consciousness will be so in tuned with this planet and the universe, that it will intertwine with those who are truly awakened, and then, and only then will this reality dissappear, and a new reality will appear, and those who have made this transformation will begin to experience the true knowledge of the universe, and will then unlock the inner wisdom that has been in all of the human race all along.

The universe is infinite. It is a journey of time and space that has no end. The smallest particle in this universe serves a purpose. Nothing dies. Everything is energy which just converts to something else. It just keeps evolving from one form to another.

The unknown is not to be feared. Its what powers the imagination of the human race, in this reality, or other realities,or other dimensions, or other parallel universes. The only true reality is inside of all of us.

The key is to center and balance your inner consciousness, slow yourself down, to take that quantum breath where you begin to shed all the outside influences out, and focus on one belief, and that is the universe is inside of all of us, as every electron, proton, quark that makes up every atom, are one connected spirit or soul of everything that has been created. When one realizes that, then what humans are experiencing right now will make sense.

The planet is slowly awakening for a reason at this particular timeline for the human race. The molten heart of this planet is pouring out her inner vibrational frequency for all humans to connect to. Once you believe in the powers of the universe, and believe this planet and you have the power to shift humanity to a new paradigm of existance, there will be no need for fear of the unknown, or any of the despair that is enveloping humanity at this moment.

So follow the light, as you have said Les, the inner light, and it will connect to the inner light of all that is good in each human, and to the planet, and the universe, and when that light finally shines bright enough, and beacons thru the Milky Way and into the multiverse, one will be a part of something much greater than one can imagine!

Once one enters that peacefulness and contentment that only comes with that inner light, and this planet begins to heal herself of the despair that mankind has brought upon her, the journey begins.

Thank you for the VO posting of the 16th.

For Fleas. I got this from a book on Natural Cat and Dog care, and used it for my cats.

Rub pure Brewer's Yeast powder (with no additives, like calcium, or anything else) into the skin and fur of cats and dogs. Do not wash off or brush off.

Available from Health Food stores.

Not Torula yeast, or Baker's yeast .

The fleas leave. If the dog or cat licks its fur, it will not be harmful, but rather beneficial, since the Brewer's Yeast is rich in the B vitamins.

I applied it three or four times over a fortnight on my cats' fur and they never had fleas after that for 12 years.

Best,
hillside

I would love to be a healer too
what an honor that would be
healing all the people
with my medicine thats free
I dont know
may be the healer
is just a feeling
an awareness no one can describe
but you can feel it
working in you
healing all inside
and every body has this ability that can only be felt
wise men learned to tap it
the rest of us
will one day learn our selves
well I dont know
how it goes
as I wander in heart and mind
all these different things
need sorting out and being refined
cliff high said something
about sun dis-ease
I dont know
maybe we are unraveling
the application to ourselves
higher nature time will come
I would say
time will always tell.

..peace

Very correct and wise!

"There are a lot of people running around calling themselves teachers and sometimes they teach you something and usually, in the process, they teach you about themselves too"

I hope more people understand when I speak about anything Im really talking about myself and the learning path I use via other people? Im thankful for others, Id learning little without them!

Oh, the healer deal, thats the same thing too. We heal the self by trying to help others, and again the end goal is really in learning to heal the self? I say more of us need to make time for others in our lives. The "web" includes all things and all faces of the lord?

I want to share a story with you, a few years ago I was driving through the flatlands at the base of the southern Sierra Nevadas when the base of my throat began bothering me, ... electrically. Call it a chakra, or call it a thyroid, it doesn't matter what we choose to term it, I can point to it on my body and say, "there."
At any rate, the sensation wasn't a pleasant one and I began looking around at all the cell phone towers surrounding me and thinking that my uncomfortable sensation was coming from them.
In due time (about 10 minutes) I arrived home and noticed my parrot was acting freaky: swooping all around the house eventually to crash into the plate glass window.

Not 2 minutes after that we experienced an earthquake on a local fault line. Short, sharp and shallow.

My body knew what was coming. If we listen to those small voices, read those tiny cues, the sum of the whole becomes apparent.

Sacred knowledge is greater than the sum of its parts. But it's damned difficult to articulate.

Les;
For the people who give you shit about being Western and understanding Eastern wisdom, I'd like to remind them that both Swami Vivekananda and Swami Muktananda intentionally wanted to teach the West. They didn't believe in the concept of the "mleccha" the "one who is not worthy to be enlightend". It's the same "not one of god's chosen", "pagan", and "infidel" bullshit.
