The Wobble Factor in the Inferior Realms

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

I’d like to talk about something today that has plagued me throughout my life and which, I suspect, has been a concern for a great many of you as well; consistency. I’m the kind of guy who is capable of intense focus for periods of time but who can go off the rails now and again because of misleading signals concerning the destination or object of endeavor.

Sometimes I’ve maintained consistency for a period of years, only to find that some unfortunate event or some inexplicable pressure has tossed me into the soup; not the sort of soup you’d be inclined to serve your guests unless you didn’t want them staying around afterwards.

A few weeks ago I had a series of events that catapulted me beyond anywhere I’d been before and stripped away a parasite darkness that had attached itself to me at some point in the past. It might not even have been in this lifetime. The removal of this entity granted me a clarity I hadn’t been able to lock on to with any ‘consistency’ for quite some time. I made a decision at that point to do away with some number of things that I had previously allowed into my life. All of these things seemed to be a fair tradeoff in the face of relentless pressures, which would increase to a near unbearable state every time I decided to make deeper changes in myself.

You could think of these tradeoffs as release valves that bled away the pressure but still allowed me to limp along in the direction I was headed. I knew I would succeed, maybe not at the speed I was capable of, but sooner or later and without spectacular highway incidents that tended to occur when I got that ‘all or nothing at all’ thing into my heart and my head.

So... there I was in this state of clarity and I said to myself that I just didn’t want any more escape valves but that I would allow myself whatever I thought I needed if it were something I could command and direct in the direction I was going. That’s been consistent since the event. What have also been consistent are the reactions of the external world, both internally and externally, at this outrage of non-conformity on my part. I decided it just wasn’t in my interest or consistent with my true nature to ‘go along to get along’ any longer. It had always been some kind of misty concept in my imagined future that I would walk away from the familiar into the unknown,  in as real a sense as it gets. I’d been doing this more or less through my life but always retaining a foothold in the shit loop of the manifest.

I realize now that every life on this planet is justified or compromised by its degree of consistency. Time is engaged dependent on the degree of consistency. At the basest level are the lives that are purely automatic and elevated only by the force of evolution. At the most rarified level is the most assisted evolution, free of any and all attachment to the surroundings through which it passes.

I was talking with Guru Bawa once and expressing the desire to achieve at the most rapid rate. He told me not to polish the pot so hard that I break it. I got the point. There’s also the danger of extreme self-righteousness and sanctimony where there isn’t enough virtue to sustain an extraordinary state. It seemed sensible to me not to press too hard because I was already moving with speed through relationships and environments so that there was no life except for constant motion in the direction of what lay beyond.

There is a point to the triumph of trivia in the world of the present. There is a motive to the dominance of the superficial over the profound. It has to do with dispersing the ability to concentrate. Along with the will, concentration is one of the keys to the magical art of transformation by self-realization. When the forces of darkness are employing their wiles upon the common mind, it is a necessary element to destroy the capacity for adequate defense in those being preyed upon. Due to the psychopaths engaged in control of the entertainment and media industries, all focus is upon the lower chakras in order to bleed the strength of the people into cisterns that empty into Hell. These fluids and excrescences are turned upon those providing them to the tune of their enslavement.

Take a look at the content and character of any film or TV series. Counterpoint it with the basic attraction utilized in every commercial from the side of a bus to halftime at the Super Bowl. It’s all about sex and the promise of your receipt of it, which results in you being bent over a rail for perpetuity. The promise of being in charge of all available pleasure, results in you becoming the plaything of demons. One’s objective reasoning and higher facilities of reason and intuition are blinded by the smoke of desires focused upon sounds and images constructed by those who intend to enslave you.

One can pass harmoniously through this, if one has the consistency to be unwavering in the passage. Few possess this capacity. One can pass with a great deal of conflict with everything one encounters and eventually win through by the force of assisted will. One can just walk away from it entirely, keeping in mind that you carry some portion of it with you wherever you go. Not even a cave in the Himalayas is safe, if the internal mechanism has not been stilled to the point that the voice of the silence can be heard.

There’s no flexibility in me now, concerning my turning to the rest stops and off ramps of possibility, on this highway out of the shadowland. This has provoked a relentless response on the part of many things external, whether they are conscious of it or not. The saving grace for me is that I’m not fighting with it. It’s just going to happen until the lack of attention to the temporary relief mechanisms causes it to starve to death. There seems to be no other way around it except through it. The inspiration for continuance is fed by the reduced capacity and strength of the force opposing liberation.

One should keep in mind that if one can imagine the victory, it is possible. However the conditions may be at the inception, they can only improve from that moment, because the opposition can never be stronger than it is at that time. Appearances may tell a different tale but appearances are a lie; not only because they are a temporary concealment of the eternal upon which they rest and flower but because our perception of their meaning is subjective. This is the key reason to not knowing. This is the freedom road out of the bondage of false knowledge; I don’t know.

My favorite phrase from the Bhagavad-Gita is, “success is speedy for the energetic”. I’ve seen the truth of that recently in a way that impressively blew my mind. I now believe that it is possible to achieve as much in a single day as one might achieve in any number of lifetimes. One has to come to an understanding of the meaning of this, on ones own terms, in ones own mind and being. The force which accomplishes liberation is not our own, though the two are engaged with each other. The Emerald Tablet of Hermes Trismegistus talks about ‘the operation of the sun’. The principal point of it all is that it is an operation preformed by the sun which you ‘allow’ to take place.

You can think of a guardian angel who stands behind and above you and who tempers and adjusts everything to the degree that you permit it. The general reaction of most everyone is to resist because the perception is that it is inimical rather than friendly; that is opposes what we think we desire, instead of being directed toward what we truly desire. The truth concerning what we think we desire can be read in the tears and sorrow of the lives that surround us and which go on in a state of endless wanting, counterpointed by regret.

Krishna stands behind Arjuna, the same way as the angel I mentioned. Every single moment of our lives and every event, no matter how insignificant it may seem, has a special connection to our relationship with the divine. Nothing else is taking place except this, although we see it differently than it is, which accounts for the extent and duration of our suffering, which can be transformed at any time, once we ‘allow’ it to take place. The whole experience can be conducted in Nature apart from the artificial constructs of the world of time. It can also take place within our own nature in the midst of the constructs.

In times of darkness... and this surely qualifies as one, devotion, or the path of Bhakti is the only sure and certain way. Everything else ties you up in the machinations of the monkey mind. I’m done with my own efforts. They have failed me. The only effort worthy of us is the effort to permit the presence of the divine, which should involve no effort at all. There is a jewel concealed within the darkness of this mystery that will reward an earnest search. I hope this proves useful and an inspiration toward consistency.

Wow, Les. You hit the nail on the head for me. I've been beating myself up rather regularly for not staying committed to a practice, and then drowning my regrets in a glass or 2 or 3, of wine at the end of the day. I think I can put the bottle down now knowing that this energy pushing against me isn't failure, but something to recognize and be with. Why give the darkness energy to feed off of my railing against my regrets and sorrows?

I recently signed up for Yogananda's weekly at home lessons (yogananda-srf.org). Between Yoganada and Les' words today, I think I can right myself back on track again and stay there longer.

Thanks, Les.

Peace

Ah, Les,

What a post. Layered like a wedding cake, but more nutritious and I thank you for your words.

I'm a creator and I lust for tools I don't own to better create. The truth is, I have all the tools I need with me at all times, but I need to keep my mind flexible enough so that I may see what creations my tool pouch will allow me to make.

This goes beyond hammers, saws and mig welders, and includes hands, feet, mouth. Think of the Black Knight from Monty Python's Holy Grail, and how he continued to find tools to use against his opponent, even after losing everything but his power of speech.

I think the lesson is; if a being can recognize itself then it has all the tools it needs to create the reality where it exist.

I don't know, but I know... if you know what I mean.

Peace
DaveS

I have been schooled that an enthusiastic mind will move faster and grow with great vigor. Still the fruits that maybe beared arent so all the , so I try over and over.

Thanks for the trade off view, that helped me see more of the maya's way, wow.

"One should keep in mind that if one can imagine the victory, it is possible"

Yes one should understand that victory is just one step of many,on the path and you will come to it, just dont run it down.

Been fighting the sex thing too. Have cleared the mind and heart of this issue but not the body yet, maybe Im still too young?

Les you speak about the sun as the center or source? The cult of aton, ie zio bad guys, started the worship of the sun and its light over all other things, thus createing lucifer?

I see only my faults but dont mind sharing, but be warned.

Sun, the father source of light
Moon, mother source of will
Earth, the child perfectly placed between its creators
Us=Earth

Simple I try and keep it.

Thanks Les. As Im still being carried and guided by the divine( and its unseen angles) and not moving at its pace, its wonderful to hear its words within you as Ive said them within myself many times over. Youre like a cosmic reinforcer.

Love Your Life

Les, you said: "I’m done with my own efforts. They have failed me. The only effort worthy of us is the effort to permit the presence of the divine, which should involve no effort at all."
Oh yes. Absolutely. My monkey mind is dragging me through the mind every which way. Deceit, appetites, all sorts of things are paraded in front of me as the Divine. Trying to exclude myself without making the mistake of the Ascetic and paying too much attention to (excluding) myself is tough going. You are in my prayers Les. Keep at it.

Les sometimes you are a light in the darkness. Keep shining.


Les I was sitting just now engaged in some simple meditation, nothing special just a candle and focusing on stillness and silence. I call it standing in the heart and using my minds eye to look into the nothingness and waiting for whatever comes along. There is a point to this at the outset and I call that “waiting for god”

Sometimes I am rewarded with an inner peace and sometimes a knowing that god is in me and with me and that all is under control.
Often times I feel so alone and a feeling of abandonment comes over me. I feel so incapable of reaching the object of my desire, which is union with god/the divine/or in my case Christ.

I have been searching for a good part of my life, hindered as it has been with dogma and such, which is something I am trying to leave behind, but finding it hard.

There are all the other distractions as well. Like the things that I have allowed to pollute my mind through freely interacting with then at different times in my life.

TV and media play a big part as you rightly point out.

Consistency is something I lack and I wish I could get a handle on that part. It seems to me that I want something that I am not willing to fight for on constant bases and yet there is hardly a day goes by when I don’t engaged in some degree of searching inwardly and outwardly for some sign, some morsel of divinity that will sustain me.
These days I feel I must race as fast as I can, it’s like playing catch-up and it is impressed on me that I must do this because time is moving on. The thing is, the more I search the farther away I seem to be. I am in that place you call “I don’t know” and it can be a scary place.

I had to leave my meditation as I was getting myself into a tizzy and felt like I was hitting my head of off a brick wall. It’s so frustrating at times. I felt angry and confused. I turned on the laptop only to find this Visible Origami which I was not expecting. It has helped me to see a little more clearly.
Thanks Les and praise the lord (Christ that is)

The older sister of a friend of mine became very ill. Near death. She emerged from hospital talking of visions she had had, and a face that said "Trust me". She was straight as hell, never so much as smoked a cigarette, and was quiet as a mouse.

To cut a long story short, she became "psychic" and was told she was very advanced. My friend had many "mystical" experiences with her, including seeing the "blue-skinned" folk we see in Indian/Vedic art.

He went to see her once, and asked if he could take something of mine, I gave him my Zippo.

I was in a club, waiting for a mate to show up, my usual non-dancing and slightly frozen self. My mate showed up, I checked the time; around midnight. After getting a drink, and chatting for a bit, a tune came on I liked, and I just got up and started dancing, fooling around, not "cool" dancing. Carried on doing this for an hour or so. Great fun, and not drunk? Wow.

Two days later I saw my friend and he asked me what I had been doing around midnight on Saturday. I told him. He said that at that time his sister was holding my Zippo, she detected a few "dark entities" that were attached to me and removed/ banished them. True story.

Anyone here familiar with Stuart Wilde? He wrote a book called "God's Gladiators".

Recommended. Thanks Les.

Visible, Thank you SO much for this!!
Question, I always give you questions. I'm sorry I don't have any answers just questions all the time. :)
Do you have any tools to suggest of practice to help remove attachments from oneself?
Maybe visualization or just yelling, I command you to go!
I have felt an attachment or two for years now. it's not as bad as it used to be but I feel there's something always sabotaging my efforts for any kind of peace or concentration. Maybe it's just my own laziness and lack of real commitment or maybe something else.
I guess I should reread your post for the answers. Hence my laziness.
I love you so much. Wish I could send you rainbows of love.
Debs.

Visible said...

Hi Debs;

One of the best ways to get rid of an attachment is to get another attachment to replace it. I know that sounds funny but it's true.

It's like that secret truth of how to get rid of the agony of heartbreak after the end of a relationship; immediately sleep with someone else. I wish I had known that at a certain point years ago but it only cost me a few months (grin).

Though it may seem a little coarse in respect of what you might be expecting from me, I suggest you motor over to Smoking Mirrors and read what I had to say about the Holistic Horizons colon cleanse. This is one of the most amazing things anyone can practice.

A lot of our attachments, fears and other negative elements are stored in our tissues and they never get a chance to cleanse because of the toxicity of ordinary life in these times. It will definitely help. Anyone who has access to a sauna and the time to do it should sit in it five hours a day for six weeks at low heat- 140 degrees and this will cleanse all the poisons from the tissues also.

Otherwise... it's a complicated thing to discuss except to say that you have to replace something with something else and bring that into your mind every time the other rises. You will effectively starve it to death after a certain period of time. Consistency again is the imperative quality needed.

As usual Les, your words ressonate.

I have been practicing my own Bhakti recently (never thought in that term till just now) and .. .. well the return is instant and obvious.

I have noticed a big change in my wife and son's attitude of late. They seem to be so much more calm and even tempered. I keep asking my wife why and She keeps telling - it isn't them it is me!

Perfect. Think of God in every moment. Really. Every moment. Hard to do, we get distracted (boy, do we get distracted) but train your mind to always return to God. "May the Divine Will prevail in my life today."

The Divine Will is perfect. Let it operate.

Hello, Les. Thadeus T. Thistlethwait here. Y'all can just call me T Cubed. I've got control because that dirty old man, Rev. John, was having a wet dream with his fantasy woman. The sorry SOB is supposed to let one of us alters have control every Friday after we all meet, but he's reneged on the deal the last several months. I've got him temporarily doped up on endorphins, but they're running out.

Anyway, I just wanted to say that in my not so humble opinion, this just may be your best Origami ever. Leastwise, I can understand it. I also wanted to ask your opinion on a speculation I have to wit: Do you think that there may be Gods above our God? Ad infinitum? As Bob Dylan sang, we've all got to serve someone.

@Gurnygob: Meditation, drugs, whatever, the thing that works best for me is to TOTALLY trust your Creator. Whatever's going down, just pause for a few seconds and commit to that. Works for me.

No doubt there is wisdom in your article.

We are usually told to to "do" good things to achieve perfection, but we also have to "avoid doing" many things in order to purify ourselves. One of the "not do"s in Islamic teachings is to lower our gaze when we see a female stranger. If you accidentally see a woman who has sexually made herself attractive that is OK, but know that the second look is an arrow to your heart by Satan.

We are told to purify our sights for 40 days and we are guaranteed to have our inner eyes opened to some secrets of universe.

This is just one example of NOT DOs...

Les, once again your words were written just for me. At least that's the way the resonance makes me feel. I too have recently had veils lifted, only to find myself in contention with things that I have already learned will only hurt me. I couldn't understand my pain, until I realized that I was standing on my own spiritual dick.

It seems that seeking, finding and knowing the path, and walking the path are two very different things.
One is easy, and the other very hard, unless one finds the balance to walk the edge of a razor. I have found though that if one walks a true path, the balance comes without effort, and the razors edge is the only solid ground.

I keep succumbing to my human condition and getting caught up in the mechanations of material life, which really interferes with my connection to the creative force.

I know, I keep jumping from 1st person to second and back. Maddening isn't it.

Anyway, I recently foung myself in court, which is a place I swore I would never go again, and with the help of a locust tree in my yard, I realized it was all my fault. I tried to assume the role of life and teach someone a lesson, only to find that it was me that learned the lesson. Funny that. Wait.....do you hear it....yep, god laughing at me again. And some think he, she, it has no sense of humor.

What?...The locust tree? Oh, well there is this locust tree in my yard, and it's very tall and old. It had a second trunk that died some time ago, and a substancial portion of it is still standing. It's the last big locust tree on my property, and it only has leaves at the very top. The thing is, locust wood is great for wood stoves. It burns very hot and leaves almost no ash, and burns as well green as cured. So I could cut this tree down and have lots of really good wood for my stove for the winter, but while I was staring at the tree the other day, it told me it wants to live. The force of its life touched the force of my life and reconnected me with the creative force. I think it was the way the leaves were moving in the wind, or the sound they made, I'm not sure. Either way, at that moment all the contention in my life went away, and let me see how I had been swimming against the flow of life. That's why I was so tired in my last post. Those poor salmon.

I also realized that I had been the source of tention in those close to me. They're feeling much better now, as am I although they don't know why, and are not in a place where they would understand if I told them, so I think I'll just keep that locust tree thing between us here. Peace to you all my friends. Thanks for being here a tolerating my rantings.

We have to get our natural state of mind back,for me it helps best to stay concentrated on Him by means of continuous chanting.
Before I reached anywhere near that state of mind, I did a lot of empirical efforts, research on all the available scriptures, all forms of yoga, pranayama, etc. But it actually is very simple, like it is stated in the Bhagavad Gita, chanting the Maha mantra is the best method to return home in Kali Yuga.

E-Bee, I agree.

Like les says, when you wish to change, something has to fill the niche you've lost/left.

I also chant the Maha mantra. It becomes a habit. Hopefully. That's the goal. Human life can be seen as a series of habits and because that's what it is that's also the key.

Instead of an internal dialogue of materialistic mundane nonsense, I consciously replace this chattering with chanting, praying, talking to God. As time passes and the more this becomes my habit(s), I become satisfied and feel as if I'm making progress in life.

The fringe benefit is a sense of peace, comfort and love.

Thanks for your help.

In the depths of time are all things revealed.

In the depths of the night. In the depths of the soul.

Where do you turn when the weight of the world, all things known, and unknown, bear upon you?

There is nothing now in me that clings to the things of this world.

The fictions are nauseating. The rote cons, tired.

This time is death and decomposition.

Life is by another system.

The negative holds full and massive sway. But are not both natures required?

We dwell now at the pole, the fringe. Fraught with tingling, dark, destructive energy.

In the maelstrom is pure light, pure positive energy...ignited.

All of the force of will, and groups, intent on crushing, destroying, all that is good and right...

Now brings about, an event continuum, of profound, perfect, and far-reaching influence.

They cannot turn back now, what they have so long set in motion, by all, near and far, high and low, bright and dark, man and woman, young and old.

As fierce night winds seek to snuff the very life from the small, molten ember, so instead is it fanned to mammoth proportions. Walls of fire as tall as the mountains. As hot as the breath of the earth herself.

The fiery destruction is not ruled by the princes of darkness, but God Himself.

Come, my enemies. There is nought to me but what God wills.

I am an instrument in His hands. I am a weapon.

You are reaped, even as you have sown so very long.

So be it. Every dark will and action now is turned upon thee until thy utter destruction befalls.

Go down into your diseased decomposition and unmaking.

Life and light and the rule of day is nigh at the doors of being.

As the Lord God liveth, thus it is.
