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!

The Monkey Mind and the Dog of Desire.

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

When you are talking to a dog and you say his or her name and then you chatter on about being a ‘good dog’ or a bad dog’ and whatever you have to say; impressed or depressed by certain behavior, what the dog hears is its name and then something on the order of “quack, quack, quack, quack”. It could be any series of sounds that don’t make sense to the dog.

Some dogs can recognize a number of words that translate into actions. Most house pets don’t get a great deal but they can be reached through the subconscious the same way we can. You have heard about people who go to sleep with a problem in mind and then wake up with the solution. You can also impress things on your subconscious and, over time, modify your consciousness, your behavior... just about anything. This is the purpose of the Tarot. Fortune telling is not the purpose but that is the level that people who are of the house pet variety see it. It seems a little redundant and deluded to want to ‘attempt’ to predict the future with a particular medium when you can actually alter the future with the same medium. The future isn’t entirely fixed.

Some elements of the future are fixed, such the conditions one might find themselves in and people one might encounter but the level at which one enters the condition and/or meets the people is variable. By example; you can show up drunk for a particular event or you could show up at the top of your form. Your condition would have a telling impact on what might take place.

The Tarot speaks to the subconscious mind in pictures and symbols. That is how the subconscious mind processes information. Consider the nature of dreams. The ninth trump is called Strength. It shows a woman dressed in white with her arms around a red lion. According to the tradition I follow, she is opening its mouth to speak. This card stands for the modification of forces below the level of self-consciousness and it is the stage preceding mastery. I’m being overly simplistic here because I want to avoid getting into complex explanation for the sake of brevity and making a general point. This isn’t even about the Tarot, nor is it a suggestion to make use of it. The same results can be attained in various modalities.

The dog sees us as God. We’ve got hands to open the icebox. We make food appear. We’re at a whole other level. In a certain way we are dogs in relation to the divine who has other hands (see Hindu posters of the deities) and can open other iceboxes and provide certain foods we don’t know how to access.

A dog’s consciousness is modified by its association with human consciousness. This can be a good thing or a bad thing. A human being is modified by its contact with the divine. This is a good thing that can sometimes take the appearance of a bad thing depending on what you get put through to increase your contact with the divine. The end result is positive but the terrain you pass through can be trying. Seeking communication and union with the divine is not for the faint of heart.

We cannot access the divine directly; rather let me say that generally this doesn’t happen. Most people would be burned to a cinder. Our contact has to take place through a series of filters. Angels serve a purpose in this respect. The divine has a variety of mediums with which to reach human consciousness and we have a variety of routes by which to approach the light. It could be said that they all work out to be the same thing, such as when Jesus says, “No man comes unto the father save by me”, “I am the way, the truth and the light”. Other religions might object to the implied exclusivity of this but the essence of the thing doesn’t contradict other religions.

We carry on far too many pointless arguments in our heads and they lead nowhere. It’s a lot like a dog chasing his tail. I often think of the childlike quality that is recommended for those seeking the kingdom of Heaven. I fancy it because it gets results. It can be very profitable to consider why this is. Often we turn thoughts over in our head in a very casual way and do not give them a deeper scrutiny. Often we do not even scrutinize the manner by which thoughts appear in our head and why that occurs to begin with. There’s a great little pamphlet from some decades ago called, “As a Man Thinketh”.

People very often wind up at the end of their lives with a great deal of regret and emptiness. They obtain senility instead of regenerated innocence. They have the TV going all the time instead of the still small voice within. When they were young they were oh so confident about who they were and where they were going; not that they actually knew. Now they have no idea who they are or who they were and can’t even remember their past with any degree of accuracy.

The trump that precedes Strength is called The Chariot and its general meaning is, ‘triumph in the mind’. You have to get control of your mind. Nothing is going to work for you until you do and you can hardly move on to anything greater in a metaphysical way until you do. This takes work and relentless application but most people can’t see the point of it. Professionals in certain lines of work can definitely see the point of it or they won’t be much good at what they do.

I’m approaching this in a very elementary way. However, simplicity is a very important feature of success. It’s been said that even an illiterate person can attain illumination. The mind likes to complicate things and this obscures the way.

Dogs take upon themselves the characteristics of their owners. Seekers take on the characteristics of the divine or whatever archetype or animal nature they are seeking to emulate or wind up emulating; aware of it or not.

People identify themselves to themselves (and to others) according to their color; race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, profession and a host of things they associate with themselves and this conceals what they really are. We are none of these things and thinking we are... is a serious mistake. It’s a death sentence. After a certain manner one might say that all death is suicide. In the Bible it says, “We shall not all die but we shall all be changed”. We can look at that statement and many another scriptural statement and just gloss over it without deeper scrutiny. What’s the point of reading it in the first place if you don’t want to understand the deeper meaning? A partial effort comes to nothing or at the very best yields inconsistent results.

I’ve said before that the world looks like a mental institution to me. I mean this literally. It’s a remarkable self-defense mechanism to be able to identify different pathologies when you encounter them. You can’t always treat the patient but you can anticipate their madness and potential and not only inoculate yourself against it but avoid the consequences of engagement. This might seem a little cynical but you have to know what is and is not within your abilities and sometimes getting out of the way is the only alternative. This is what I got from the martial arts. My days of actual physical contact in this respect are long gone except for maintaining a certain level of ability and flexibility for reasons of mobility and health. These days the matter takes care of itself before it becomes a concern (raps on head with knuckles and says, “Knock on wood”.). It’s a lot like bullfighting but without the red cape.

Things like the Tarot and other interesting disciplines from earlier times can be very, very useful in many, many ways. When one can communicate with their dog (metaphorically speaking) one can often do some surprising things. One’s mind, which is very much like a monkey, can become one’s greatest ally instead of one’s most remorseless enemy. A great many of the residents of the animal kingdom symbolize activities, conditions and states of being in the human realm but... once again, we don’t look deeper. We don’t scrutinize intently and carefully. Many of us move through life like a pinball and wind up in the same location (metaphorically speaking) as the pinball.

Most of what we think we know about life is not what life is about. Life has a single purpose and engaging in anything else just means you go round and round and round and round until you discover it.

Les-
I was lucky enough to work at a dogsled operation for several years. Over 300 dogs at various ages, all with unique personalities, and something I learned there is that humans and dogs are quite alike.
The sled drivers were the dogs 'masters' but in reality it was more like a factory and the dogs were co-workers. The dogs were maybe not quite as smart as the drivers, but working with them felt a lot like working with human coworkers, except the dogs worked harder and were more focused.
After being around the critters as much as I was, I realized that god is just dog spelled backwards...
Now, having finished reading your post comparing dogs to humans, humans to the divine, I have a new perspective. I like your comparison, it fits.
And as you say about physical confrontation is true: The real masters don't need to use physical means to move others... they've mastered themselves and can control their passions which makes them far stronger than any muscle head.
Stay strong and may you go with dog...

Well said Les!!

Why is it that I enjoy teaching people? It helps me understand myself and others a little deeper with each encounter.

I think Politics and Religion are far from strange bedfellows, rather their snouts are both butting into all our troughs.

My father always said you could tell a lot about a man by his dog.

It is intelligence which commands the mind to control the senses...

Paramahamsa: People argue that "God has given us our intelligence and our senses, and therefore we must enjoy."

Prabhupada: Yes. You enjoy. The dog is also enjoying. What you are enjoying more than the dog? Dog also eat. You also eat. Dog also sleep. You also sleep. Dogs also enjoy sex life. You also enjoy sex life. Dog is also afraid of his enemy. You are also afraid of your enemy. So what is the difference between you and dog? Why you claim that you have become very great? What is the difference between the dog's mentality and your mentality? God has given you intelligence to understand that you are nothing, God is everything. Just realize it. That is intelligence. That is intelligence. When you understand that "God is great. I am His servant," that is real reali... That is his intelligence. Otherwise, he's exactly like the dog. What is his intelligence?

this is why i love the origami. i just listened to one of your radio shows yesterday talking about the dogspeak "bla bla bla bad dog bla bla" and i made this exact connection from dog to man to god. but you just extrapolated it further with the tarot.

i see the chariot as total action in this world. it is indeed a mastery of the mind, since that is where the world resides for each of us among the endless distractions.

on the subject of animals and symbolism, i sent you a short email not long ago attached with the first part of a series of images i am nearly finished with. i never expected you to reply, but hope in some way you enjoyed it.

its good to see the clarity this break has afforded you.

A divine guide and lover of the light you are, thanks man.
My first love was a dog. By the age of six I could see other people's will in the dogs they owned. It took sometime for me to see myself in my dogs. They all love to lick and love. They all want pets and to sit in my lap. They hate to be alone. Me too!
Thanks for lesson
The strength card is super big for me. I see myself being the lion and getting some pets and love? Very cool. I want to learn to be the lady!

Lots of good points, Les - but as a cathingeymebob I must say, a beep of a lot of people act like pampered, untrained dogs, worse even; barking up the wrong trees etc. Sniffing each others arses and pooping on the street is plain natural behaviour of course. Sometimes I don't even mind dogs as much as their so-called owners - maybe that works on the sapien level too.

As always Les you are right on point

I am not throwing roses ..it just the way I see it and wish I myself had the ability to express it.But your doing a fine job for all of us out here that can't use word's in a manner as eloquent as you my Brother.
I would like to add that when the zionist in the msm are attacking in one religion, they are in fact attacking God.As wel as attacking many good and honest folk.But the day is quickly approaching and folks are falling awake to their sinister plans.
May the Great God and Provider guide and protect you Les.

One of the things that one learns in practical magic is to only believe what you see or experience. Have been practicing all sorts of meditations for many years, some of which are very scary, and have never met an "Angel" or any other ethereal critter. Practicing real magic actually makes one look upon the world in a very stark manner, free of fantasy.

Meditative practices have greatly increased my internal strength, and have achieved really "high" states of consciousness, but has also brought about the belief that images of angels and demons are just self induced hallucinations. Some of the magicians who propose such things as angels and demons, such as Crowley and Steiner are just carnies. Crowley was a drug addict and total degenerate, who probably suffered horrifying visions from various sexually transmitted diseases. Steiner played the intellectual card in order to convince people of his visions, and his writings are drawn out and boring as hell.

The next step in consciousness, after the Human consciousness, is quite obviously that of the Sun and Earth. One does not need to have "visions" to observe the Sun and Earth, which is probably why people never consider them as magical. People want to feel special, so the concept of anyone being able to directly and easily communicate with higher beings is too ego demeaning for neophytes.

Ironically enough, the desire to be special only blinds one to the door of power and realization. One can never state that Nature does not have a sense of humor. Unfortunately, too many Humans believe in the fairy tales of angels and demons, and forsake Nature.

This is why the Jews can feed the goyim the nonsense of Jesus, the "only" son of God, who incarnated on Earth as a Jew (of course) in order to be tortured and murdered by other Jews to save the much despised goyim from a sin invented in the third century by the Jew controlled Catholic Church! This is the type of angel and demon crap that goyim eat up, because it makes them "special". It also helps them avoid actual meditation and proper behavior, whole they only have to invoke the magic word Jesus.

Humanity is screwed.

The master and the dog, a good analogy, for some at times it seems a tad more remote, like the master and the worm farm.
But it clears the vision of the master when one knows how much the master loves the dog.

Profound thoughts brothers Les. S/He for whom we all live does indeed have many hands, and faces. Bless your many typing "fingers".

PS: A personal question Les, why is it that literally every form of spirituality declares God to be love, yet none feel comfortable declaring Love to be God?

Anonymous said...

To those of you slinging arrow at Les - it's not about whether the path is right or wrong according to a religion. It's simply about right and wrong.

Every path one takes has branches and forks in it - some lead to a cul-de-sac; some lead on detours you need to grow and understand, and then there are some that lead only deeper into darkness, wrongness and futility of evil.

What is important is that you are on a path and seeking right. That is all the guide each of us need.

There are more commonalities to right and to wrong between each religion than there are differences. Each of us is responsible for our choices and actions - and that is all we can ever be responsible for.

Take the good in people and build. It is harder than picking the bad and tearing down, but by choosing to build the good, we are all uplifted.

And yes - it sounds cheesy, but having been in many cultures and many places - I feel this is the right path.

Hey Les,
Just one point I would like to make about the Jesus "said" phrase. John wrote that Jesus said "No one comes to God except through me," but these were said to be putting words in Jesus's mouth. John never met Jesus and wrote this down over 40 years after Jesus was dead. Mark knew Jesus and wrote that Jesus himself said, "The prerequisite for eternal life is not what you believe, but your ability to recognize God in your fellow man, especially those who you consider the least of your brothers and sisters." For reference consult Bishop John Shelby Spong's "A New Christianity for a New World."
Mean while I wish I were closer to you, where ever you are. It sounds like a wonderful place to be. Maybe Romania. I heard they are back in time compared to the Rat Race here. Take care, I look forward to meeting you. Maybe this life.

Synchronicity !?!

I think you're right. Tarot is NOT just about divination but a method testing our ability to affect some desired future.

I was just using the Tarot to see if visiting my dog ( who is dying of old age and is with my ex-wife ) would be OK.

You know about the "Observer Effect" in quantum physics right? Where how the observer looks at a Quantum system effects how the particles behave.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Observer_effect_(physics)

Well there's a follow-on experiment that shows we may not just effect how it behaves but actually CREATE the outcome

http://www.newscientist.com/article/mg19426091.600-the-second-quantum-revolution.html?full=true

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leggett–Garg_inequality

I think Tarot not olny queries the future but tests out intention's ability to create it.

Our scientific knowledge is starting combine with our esoteric knowledge so that we may in the words of T.S. Eliot

"We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time"

Anonymous said...

Kelly O made an incredibly sweet point about Jesus saying and including God being in ALL people, especially the least..

In the Bhagavad Gita, Jesus' Father (Who Jesus always talks about and loves so very much) said the very same thing, but in His total knowledge and mercy actually included not only people but EVERY living entity.

"The humble sage, by virtue of true knowledge, sees with equal vision a learned and gentle brahmana, a cow, an elephant, a dog and a dog-eater [outcaste]..."

psychegram said...

As so many have pointed out => dog man god thus if we understand our dog, we integrate ourselves into the chain - consciously, that is - that leads up to the gods and maybe eventually God. To study our metaphorical dog, a great many systems of symbols are of use: tarot, astrology, meditation, as well of course as close association with actual dogs (which got that name for a reason of course.)

In the end it doesn't matter which system, so long as a system is followed. Like any symbolic system, a valid system will function as a language, and it must be a complete language, able to cover the entire range of the monkey mind's inner workings in an inevitably combinatorially complex fashion, which is to say that every system should be infinitely deep in potential meaning. It probably helps, however, to learn as many systems as possible, to be able to compare the psyche in different lights. In the end the goal is to transcend any system entirely and become a channel for the divine which is beyond all that and primary to it (and whose existence implies that ALL of its parts will express its Mind, if one but looks ... which is why the various occult systems work in the first place.)

Thank you, LV.
In a similar vein to kcb at 8:05 pm, and to what you say : the citations below are from readers of the link given at the bottom; the comments are worth reading.
Though some of your readers seem to want to promote some religious dogmas (as you pointed out), keep on with your message, which those who have open minds will grasp.
The ONE Mind/ Spirit/ Awareness/ Source, (ultimately formless, not a person)which has caused Everything to come into existence simply encompasses ALL that is, as you point out, what we call Good and Evil, the purpose of which we ordinarily do not know, but which natural mystics and others who have trained themselves have been able to glimpse.
What we can and must do is be kind and generous and help those we can. "Love your neighbour".

" Is not enlightenment: never losing track of the whole and seeing the non-whole as a mere transient surface appearance of the whole?"
" - it seems also more than likely that everyone is challenged during his being as a human to reach a higher level of knowledge and consciousness. If so, after death the electrons will organize or form a new "living tool" (may be a human) on this higher level..
If this logic would really exist (and I have no doubts at all) we should take the chance to invest as much as possible into our nextl life. May be this could be the beginning of a new kind of philosophy and - this is definitely a captivating vision - could lead to a global change of consciousness at all levels of our society."
"Our logic system seems to be inadequate to handle the results from quantum mechanics, psi and a whole host of other phenomena of a subjective nature."
"Nagarjuna: X, Y, not X, not Y and both X and Y. Translated to wave/particle duality, this may be seen as: particle, wave, both particle AND wave and neither particle nor wave."

I hate what America has become

.
Best of Craigslist

Warning English Language used

There are so many reasons that frankly, it's hard to pick a place to start:


First of all.....when 28% of you brain dead fucking morons give a blithering IDIOT like Sarah Palin positive approval ratings and think she ought to run for president in 2012, it really makes me sick to know I am lumbered with that many mouth-breathing Cro-Magnons I unfortunately have to consider as my fellow countrymen....trust me.....I don't. You motherfuckers are beyond help.


And before you go thinking this is a "liberal" based rant.....that brings me to one more item on an ever-lengthening list.


This "Liberal" versus "Conservative" paradigm that so many of you simple dunces buy into.....as BOTH parties sell you out to the multinational corporations, banks and special interests that actually run Washington D.C.).....you do this STUPID dance every day, blithely detatched from the reality that YOU YOURSELF are helping to DIVIDE AND CONQUER the nation, as you myopically beat your little Hannity/Olberman drum of FUTILE self -righteous indignation. PATHETIC.


THIS is a nation of PUSSIES AND FUCKING COWARDS. If this nation had any BALLS WHATSOEVER, there would be a trail of DEAD MEN SWINGING FROM THE ENDS OF ROPES leading from AIG, thru WALL STREET, the not-so "Federal" reserve, the 9/11 commission, and right through every other set-up con-job you people just buy into like a bunch of CATTLE BEING LED TO SLAUGHTER.


It's not that Americans don't give a fuck.....every misled, misdirected group that goes out and crusades for the "Grand Cause" they think is responsible for the decimation of this ONCE great nation proves that.....the problem IS that the problem ISN'T illegal aliens (i.e. Minutemen) or Democrats in Washington (i.e. Teabaggers) or conservative policies (i.e. Code Pink).......the problem is ...... AMERICANS THEMSELVES.


AMERICANS have sat on THEIR ASSES while Washington and the Pentagon have BANKRUPTED THE TREASURY and sent our sons and daughters into MEAT GRINDERS in Iraq and Afghanistan for WMD's and connections to 9/11 that did NOT EXIST and even AFTER the overwhelming evidence that the intel was "swept all up" (doctored, falsified, unreliable) you STUPID SHEEP keep buying into the BRAIN DEAD notion that somehow, these wars are for the FREEDOM of America.

You're an IDIOT. They're wars for EMPIRE.

This is the most ARROGANT nation in EXISTANCE, second only to ISRAEL....and since ALL of our politicians are falling over backwards to kiss Israel's ASS on a daily basis, fully knowing that exposing any inconvenient TRUTH about them equals political SUICIDE....that and the mass media in America that feeds it's daily ration of BULLSHIT is controlled by individuals biased towards them as well....ANYONE who thinks they know what is going on because they read TIME magazine and watch CNN, FOX news OR MSNBC.....you are DELUSIONAL.


One nation under God....? What a JOKE.


MONEY is God here pal....even people who are reading this who hate the words I typed KNOW this is true. What does it say in your bible about the love of money? The root of all evil, no?


How DARE this nation question human rights abuses of other nations after Abu Ghraib and countless other bombing and torture campaigns, where it was stated it is passable to crush the testicles of young boys in front of their fathers to extract information.


How DARE this nation deign to be the world's nuclear police when WE are the only nation to ever USE NUKES.


MOST of you actually consider Palestinians as TERRORISTS, when it is THEY who have been occupied, imprisoned behind 25 foot high concrete walls and denied basic human decency by APARTHEID ISRAEL. Those of you who get your info from American media REMAIN IGNORANT OF THE TRUTH.


You're probably wondering if I'm some Arab, or other person hostile to "America's Freedoms" lol.... Yeah, you're really free here.......


Free to go BANKRUPT if you get sick, even if you HAVE HEALTH INSURANCE.


Free to vote on DIEBOLD voting machines that can flip elections and leave no paper trail.


Free to watch your life savings DWINDLE AND EVAPORATE into the pockets of the ROBBER BARONS you PATRONIZE.


Free to watch your JOB get shipped to CHINA....and then you fucking FOOLS buy the goods PRODUCED FORM THOSE JOBS at Wal Mart, further REWARDING AND ENCOURAGING businesses to CONTINUE this pattern. I have never bought a fucking THING from Wal-Mart, and if you have.....you are a simple, stupid FUCKSTICK.


You're free to be video monitored, photographed by the millisecond at traffic light traps, electronically surveiled, searched with no warrant, shaken down and partially disrobed at airports, free to be told how much shampoo you are allowed to carry in your luggage, free to buy processed foods that give you cancer, genetically altered vegetables that contain neat things like INSECT DNA, free to pay more than ANY OTHER COUNTRY ON THE PLANET for pharmeceuticals, free to be the pharmaceutical company's guinea pig for drugs that have potentially catastrophic side effects, free to have PUBLIC POLICY DICTATED TO YOU by government 'officials' that have dual citizenship with ISRAEL, free to have ANY MEANINGFUL TRUTH WITHHELD FROM YOU by the mass media......

......and you do NOTHING to stop ANY of it.

You ignorant FOOLS who send shotgun Emails to all your friends warning of "death panels" and other such HEALTH INSURANCE INDUSTRY PROPAGANDA, yes, you friggin' GOMERS actually think the Health Insurance Industry has your best interests in mind, and it's "dat mean ol' gubmint" that wants to penalize you by providing your family health care that isn't profit-based.


MEDICARE only got passed because it effectively REMOVED the highest-risk group to the insurance providers (the elderly) from the 'pool' of prospective insurees, thereby minimizing their financial exposure. It's completely lost on most people that catastrophic illness is the main reason for personal bankruptcy....and that 75% of those who had to file HAD health insurance.


And this is the 'status quo' many of you are defending. You are BEYOND dense.


America has lost it's HONOR, as well as it's collective senses. I don't wish upon America any malice or catastrophe.....trust me, this is happening with assistance and collusion from the top down, not from some Arab in a cave. I just want to leave peacefully and live in a place that doesn't have leaders that hope for a "catastrophic and catalyzing event" to promote a war agenda that takes pride in kicking the shit out of unarmed peasants living in the dirt....then blames them for retaliating. Can't wait to see this dysfunctional madhouse in my rear view mirror.


When you abide by a system of government that you FULLY EXPECT will side AGAINST YOU and WITH corporate lobbyists (MANY of whom represent interests that are not even from the USA) who BRIBE THEM WITH BALES OF CASH....and are working 24/7 to maximize their profits and minimize their potential competition in the marketplace.....all at the expense of you and your family....and don't lift a FINGER to do ANYTHING TO CHANGE IT......you fucking DESERVE WHAT'S COMING. What might that be.....?


Think Germany and the treaty of Versailles.....when a wheelbarrow full of Deutschmarks is what it took to buy a MEAL.


WHEN the dollar collapses.....not IF, WHEN.....THAT'S when you'll really begin to see the true definition of FASCISM. The unity of government and corporations to economically and militarily control it's people. History WILL repeat itself....but if you're like so many of the morons in the USA who think they're so smart but don't know SHIT.....it will all be NEW TO YOU. Good luck.....you'll need it.
