Weird and Strange and So it Goes

Dog Poet Transmitting........

“May your noses always sense the presence of truth”.

Well now, I’m back a week early because the fellow babysitting the dogs had to go into the hospital because nearly all of his red blood cells have disappeared. We just walked into the house about an hour ago after a thousand mile trip and I’m either fried or bushed, depending on how you describe the state but I’ll write this as my way of saying I am back, even though it wasn’t what I wanted and provides me with a subject for what I’ll be talking about here, so, all things being some kind of equal, although I don’t understand any of it, let’s proceed.

I got to the house in Italy and Susanne and I worked from dawn to dusk for seven days and then decided we would have some recreational time and maybe do some things we might enjoy when we were informed that her friend had been taken to the hospital and realized that we had to come back; so it goes, so it goes. In the process of coming and going, I lost a couple of what might be called valuable items from the material plane and I just let it slide. They got lost in a way that doesn’t compute because they were right there and then they were not.

A morally corrupt astrologer, who might know what she’s talking about, told me that I would be having supernatural experiences the way other people have Cheerios for breakfast. Since all the other astrologers who appeared out of the woodwork; apparently because I was supposed to hear these things at this time, also corroborated this, even though one of them doesn’t even work by the usual western method, I assume it’s true and I assume it’s more true, since I’m looking at these things take place. I’m not going to itemize the weird and the strange since that will take too much time but weird and strange appear to be my new zip code.

In the process of going through weird and strange, weird and strange have spilled over into the moments and circumstances of those interacting with me and since these events are, ‘weird and strange’, no explanation can suffice concerning what people expect and what people get, which puts me in weird and strange, if you catch my drift. I’m okay with that; I’ve lived in weird and strange for most of my life. Most people don’t live in weird and strange and I’m just going to have to trust on my track record to act as an explanation that I can’t give because, well, because it’s weird and strange.

In the meantime, Susanne’s old boyfriend showed up to take care of the dogs and had enough hepatitis to turn him yellow but he seemed good to go. He’d been in the hospital off and on for several months because his heart wasn’t operating properly and no one seems to know what’s wrong with him, which is par for the course with allopathic medicine. I imagine it’s some kind of immune system failure and it’s unfortunate; certainly for him and certainly for Susanne who loves him very much. She’s visiting him at the hospital here right now. He was in Berlin, where it’s all state of the art and they were treating him, even though they don’t know what’s wrong with him.

I feel like everything is going to work out for everyone, even though I don’t know much of anything; I’ve got a wheelhouse filled with faith and the certitude that everything works out for everyone, even if it takes longer than most people want it to. The reason for that is a lack of cooperation on the part of the players in the cosmic drama, who don’t always see it as one. I’ve come to understand that everything that happens to everyone is related to their relationship with the cosmic author of all things and all that time involved, is the measurement of distance between the awareness of those affected and the presence of the one who is reaching and needs to be reached into.

It’s as clear as the wind through the trees to me, even though the wind doesn’t explain itself and one is left with the sound of the voices in the wind, that carries Nature’s answer to our questions, spoken and unspoken, because Nature is god’s trumpet, speaking in the tongues of the unconscious, as it rises into the plane of the self conscious, having been prompted by the author of all things. All of this should be clear as sunlight to everyone who knows what I’m talking about and as opaque as the mud of the material world, that blinds those engaged in it from the manifestor behind the manipulator of the appearances of the permutations of the one thing.

One tries to operate from one particular point of observation, which is constantly changing due to alterations made in the perceptual field of the perceiver; as well as alterations made to the perceiver, while attempting to translate circumstances that will make a different impression on every reader, depending on where the reader is standing, on the spiral staircase of existence and keeping in mind both the continuous movement of everyone concerned, while also keeping in mind the quickening at work in ‘this time’, in relation to all of us, depending on our degree of openness to it. Am I being too obscure? I hope not because this is as clear as it gets (grin).

I hadn’t anticipated writing anything for another week yet but here I am. I had hoped to spend this week putting the final touches on the next book; “Spiritual Survival in a Temporal World”. I’m going to do that and get it off to the publisher around this time next week but I’m also going to be writing for you, which is the only reason I engage in any of this because it wouldn’t make much point writing it for myself.

I look at what I do here- sometimes- and it’s a mixed bag for me. I don’t enjoy it and I don’t dislike doing it either. It just happens. My whole life has just been things happening and every time I try to have some kind of personal input into it, it nails me into one more condition of failure, in which my personal efforts are proven to be no more than woven moonbeams upon a sea of samskara. I used to mind this quite a bit and I suppose the whole point of what I am writing here is that I don’t mind anymore; like being called back the moment the necessary work was done in Italy and the loss of certain items, I just let it go and I suppose that is and has been the point of the whole exercise; for me to finally let go of my presumptions and ambitions and just look at every moment and every day as a situation in which I wait to see what’s going on and dance with it. I don’t know why it took me so long to catch on to what’s been happening to me for such a long time. I’m the guy who says that everything is under control and a whole lot of other things but then I operate like one more mask extended into the world, when I have no real connection to it, except for what it is I’m doing right now, or the various permutations of it.

A poet once said, “Teach me to care and not to care, teach me to stand still”. I don’t remember who that was at the moment but I get what he meant more than I ever have and all sorts of things are touching each other now, when they were just acting off of each other before. It’s as if whatever friends and enemies I’ve ever fantasized that I possessed, have suddenly found something authentic in one another in a powerful and inexpressible way that wasn’t possible before, because I wasn’t willing before, because, well, because, quite frankly, I just don’t know. It appears there are all kinds of, “I don’t know” and I was missing one of them, which had been operating- in its absence- as a reflexive, “maybe I do know” but I didn’t know about it, because it was hiding in the operation of the personality that I had been using as a transmission vehicle, without taking into consideration that it was not entirely transparent.

Supposedly, exactly on my coming birthday, certain possibilities will be at the highest potential they have ever been for me and this is being echoed by all of those who have been engaged in interpreting my chart, which comes to about 6 of them, give or take and I’ve known about this event which has been coming for a long time so, it’s not a surprise, though the event will surely be and it may or may not be precise but it’s inevitable. I’ve come to understand that nothing prevents it but us and that it becomes definite and immediate (cosmically speaking) the moment that nothing else has any more meaning or value. It’s a curious feature of our deluded humanity that we don’t get the glaring fact that everything is based on the one thing that is obscured by our misidentification of it with anything other than it. That’s all that keeps us hanging around and repeating ourselves. The moment we catch on, the sum of all of our desires are delivered to our doorstep, for the enjoyment of the principle, in the most complete and profound ways that we have never managed to experience, while we were someone other than the supreme enjoyer of everything. Would that I had the words to elaborate on this but that’s not possible and never will be.

I don’t want to confuse the issue with talk about astrologers and the implication of understanding what is meant by, ‘no man knows the hour of his coming” but then, it’s been here all the time anyway and I imagine that some extended period, filled with peals of laughter, follows upon the dawning of the simplest thing in the world. I think Ho Tail embodies that as much as anyone. Please forgive my poor attempt to make sense out of this, given that it exists beyond the bounds of reason and given that madness is a prerequisite. The one thing I’m sure of is that it all works out and that we are all more OK and blessed than we can imagine. The only thing blocking our full appreciation of that is us.

End transmission.......

Hello Les,

Thank you for the post.
I'm glad you're back.

Hi Les,

I am glad you are back, welcome back. I am glad you had some time with Suzanne, every couple needs some time together.

Amazing things have happened inthe last 24/36 hours, the murdoch empire has been dealt a mortal blow with the BEST selling Sunday newspaper (Rag) being closed down. This is miraculous...

I will say a prayer for Suzannes friend and hope his suffering is limited by Gods good graces, Inshallah.

It seems we are in the final act of this movie and I for one is glad to have you here.

Gosh, Les.

You make it sound as if you expect to undergo an important transition on your upcoming birthday.

Whatever happens, I hope that you will still be able to communicate with us in some form or fashion.

My best of wishes to you and yours and may the best of good fortune be your companion.

Hello Mr. Visible. Thanks for writing today. I have been trying to see the me and find I always manage to get in the way. Funny how that works. Thank you for spending the time with us. We all very much appreciate you! Be well sir.

Perhaps you secretly (instinctively) hope for some level of reciprocity. You know what they say; just keep showing up.

In any case, I expect when we 'get there'... it will be like we never left.

some of all that here . a possible health diagnosis that will make sense, in hindsight of it all, and, despite the difficulties encountered, still counting my blessings and giving myself a pat on the back for being such a good chap. a cure would be nice, but not essential, pain without suffering, what a lesson to learn (aint there yet, and not one minute of meditational bliss - but I do know what I ought to know and it probably will, if I WILL, BE). Why settle for less?

happy birthday and even happier 'death' days.

Hello All - you all seem like good people, brothers and sisters in Humanity :)

I thought I'd share the latest blessing in my life...

... with videos and talks from a 90 yer old wise man, from the Sufi perspective.

Be well everyone.

Visible seems a bit tired from his sudden trip home, as the level of difficulty of these metaphysical concepts bandied about in this post of his are normally quite easy for him to treat with perceptual aplomb and cognitive precision.

So get some rest, Dude Visible. 1. Shut left brain down to maintenance level via means of your choice (sleep, etc.). 2. Open right brain via means of your choice, (sleep, etc). 3. Let subconscious do its job. 4. Tomorrow is a better day.

Aloha Les... I just tried to send this through the facebook personal message system but I get an error... I was about to send this even before I read your newest blog, as I intuited you've been going through odd things lately similar to what I have. You suggest you didn't have a clue what was going on. I suspect you may find this very important and relevant to the situation that you, myself and many others are going through at this particular moment in time. Consider skimming through the comments under these videos as well...

Ear Ringing?! The effects of S.S.S.S. (Killer HD) YT testimonials... Pt 1

Ears ringning?! Silent Sound Spread Spectrum (Killer HD) viewer testimonials PT 2

The name of the video doesn't give it justice. He doesn't recognize the telepathic nature of ear ringing (and brain effects) which is completely natural, but he does a good job explaining how they are attempting to scramble our connection to the collective unconscious... hence the possible difficulties in communicating, mood swings, health problems and other anomalies of late. Yeah, I don't know.

Generally I avoid such topics but I was surprised. This guy has some wonderful stuff... he is such a humble human... he is the real deal, and for the rest of his videos, consider checking out his youtube page here:

Take care, and much love to you.

My wife, who tends to run with the herd, came in the other day with a rock in her hand. 'Do you know what type of rock?" she asks. 'It's a chunk of coal', I reply. 'Where did you get it?' I ask. 'Found it in the garden' she replies. 'Why isn't there any dirt on it?' I ask. 'I washed it off' she replies.

Life, a metaphor. Profound. Meaningful.

Reading today.... Les went to Italy to clean up some stuff. Works hard and lost some stuff before returning home.

Our drama seems to be directed by a hidden director... and it's always means something.

Be well at home Les. Keep writing the best stuff I've seen, that is, short of the cosmic author who holds our hand(s).

Well said Les, I also don't know much of anything and being that I do know that, leaves room for a plethora of anything; I'm comfortable with that.

Dear Les...

Welcome back...I missed you and everyone that comments...

in your absence...i found comfort listening to many YouTube videos created of your blogs and wonderfully narrated by user name...Snordelhans...

this is the beginning of the end of evil...ALL evil will be destroyed...not just the evil found in certain people or nations, but everywhere...

in this final awakening and Judgement...when all beings are cleared out of this toxic physical dimension...they will be stripped of all pretence and will be separated according to their spiritual natures...

those who are of the Light and loyal...regardless of the circumstances of their physical incarnation...regardless of race, religion, nationality, beliefs, gender, finances, education, or position in life...will go to the Light...

those who are evil and loyal to evil...regardless of their circumstances in life, will be quarantined and then transmuted into nothingness...the evil ones will cease to exist and Divine Justice will prevail...

this time...there will be no escaping detection, capture and eradication of those of the evil essence...the basis will be spiritual...

i feel my energy level vibrating higher this morning after being back in touch with everyone...

Best Wishes Always

The universe moves us at its will. The scent of truth is easily detected, smells like flowers sprinkled with morning dew and glowing in the morning sunlight.

Trying to make sense of it, can make you crazy, if you aren’t already.

Weird and strange may be a matter of perspective, and as the world changes to meet the needs of the divine, we change with it or are overwhelmed.

Write as you are moved to write, I will do my best to read with acceptance and understanding, but a lack of understanding will merely indicate I’m not thinking it through properly.

"...the implication of understanding what is meant by, ‘no man knows the hour of his coming” but then, it’s been here all the time anyway and I imagine that some extended period, filled with peals of laughter, follows upon the dawning of the simplest thing in the world."

Les, some days you are really on, at least for me. This posting is the most lucid in a long time, again, to me.

I pick the above quote because I realized something from it. Every time I see it used it refers to the second coming of Jesus. But now it just dawned on me that this might be the wrong interpretation. My feeling is that the "Christ Consciousness" is a personal, individual realization of the Christ, the Divine, within us. No one can do it for us and we can't do it as a group. This must come individually. Some might refer to it as "enlightenment", or "seeing with one eye".

The quote above "no man knows the hour or the day of his coming" or some paraphrase refers to each individual not knowing when his own enlightenment will occur. That realization might just be the "simplest thing in the world."

I don't know that I can see this clearly, but enlightenment maybe doesn't come all at once, or maybe it does, or maybe ii does if I think it does. I don't know.

This just popped into my head, sung to the tune of "I Can See Clearly Now":

I can see clearly now, the rain is gone,
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It’s gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-Shiny day.

I think I can make it now, the pain is gone
All of the bad feelings have disappeared
Here is the rainbow I’ve been prayin' for
It’s gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-Shiny day.

Look all around, there’s nothin' but blue skies
Look straight ahead, nothin' but blue skies

I can see clearly now, the rain is gone,
I can see all obstacles in my way
Gone are the dark clouds that had me blind
It’s gonna be a bright (bright), bright (bright)
Sun-Shiny day.

My Lord Jesus, I repent of my fornications, wickedness and idolatry.

I offer praise to You Jesus, for openiong my eyes that I might be turned and healed.

Our Father who art in Heaven,
Hallowed be Thy name.
Thy kingdom come, thy will be done,
on Earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us today our daily bread,
and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.
Lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil,
for Thine is Kingdom, the Power and the Glory.

Hmmm I read mirrors first hoping to see why the confusion existed, I didn't see it.
Maybe I'm just dense as it made prefect sense and the need for clarification superfluous.Heck maybe I don't understand which is more than possible. But what I got is a gift, as always Thanks Les.Or as Chief Dan Geoge says in Josey Wales, "We must endevor to persevere" :-)

How about perhaps a relevent zen thought!?!

"Life at the pivot of nothingness is nothing but motion and process. Through spiritual practice you can really understand this and enjoy your life. But no matter how long you think about it logically, you won’t understand, because thinking always creates a gap. Then your daily life is not grounded in the real present; it is up in the air. You are mixed up and your life is really suffering."
―Katagiri Dainin, Each Moment Is the Universe, Ch. 14

The other night when I entered my room, there was a spider on the wall, motionless in the light of a desk lamp. I grabbed a glass and deftly trapped the spider inside. Out of the blue I said aloud, "anyone else looking for a way out, step up..." Nothing happened. I took the spider outside and set him loose. I went back into the house and into my room only to discover the exact same type of spider, in the exact same place as the previous one. I caught him with no problem and set him free. The whole affair seemed odd, if not weird and strange...

elder flower wonders

heart of earth reveals
the wheels of all solutions
vibrancy engage
waves across the motions
oceans living brace
a lotion of the rivers
flowers and the sun
tempest of the mountain
union of all one
a whisper through the silence
knock upon the door

"Last night in the television, one boy was asking me, “Swamiji, you are all after spiritualism. Why you are using this clay as tilaka and so many things you are using which is matter?” So I explained to him… Perhaps you have known. Actually, there is no matter, actually, in this sense, because everything is emanating from the Supreme Spirit. Everything is emanating…"

Thank you Vis for your beautiful words. I get what you are saying as I am floating in Love this past week visiting family in N Michigan and floating back home taking it all with me, leaving behind much, expanding and expanding. Who knows how long it will last for me, but I will BE in it as long as possible.

Writing thank yous makes me wax poetic; hope they get it. But if they don't, well the intention is out there and will surround them anyway.

There have been a lot of passings in this family and what I got from people sharing their memories and interactions is that everyone has their truth of the situations that brought death to our loved ones. All sorts of perspectives, all true. It gave me a chance to let go of any notion I had of who anyone was and just hold all the sharing as a large picture of the life that was led in the various ups and downs; the Joys and the deep Sorrows.
Some feel guilty for how they treated these ones who have passed, but I am not one to hold it against them any longer; I will go beyond the history to where the Heart is Now, and look to allow the Healing and Love that will hopefully bring Peace. It is not mine and never was(though I just get this)to judge. It is not my soapbox to say who deserved what or brought it on themselves.
Mine is only to love those who speak their heart to me and accept them as they are.

It is a chance I take to be misunderstood or thought a fool, and that's ok, I take no offense.

One woman passed a lot of judgement on me about something she knew nothing about, and later after I struggled with my anger, I realized I had upset her applecart about how she thinks things are suppose to be...and I laughed...I freed myself from my own prison and left her behind.
And I will love her too eventually(grin). She gave me a test and I passed so I am glad to have met her.

Blessings and healings to all.

The lines are similar to TS Eliot's Ash Wednesday

Blessed sister, holy mother, spirit of the fountain, spirit of the garden,
Suffer us not to mock ourselves with falsehood
Teach us to care and not to care
Teach us to sit still
Even among these rocks,
Our peace in His will
And even among these rocks
Sister, mother
And spirit of the river, spirit of the sea,
Suffer me not to be separated
And let my cry come unto Thee.
