Dog Poet Transmitting.......
May your noses always be cold and wet.
(I started an Origami a couple of days ago but, for whatever my reasons were, I didn't complete it or put it up. We'll try a different approach today and probably be more successful..)
I don't know exactly how to put it; should I say there is a lot of bad energy swirling around? Is it that or just a lot of chaos and change that isn't entirely focused or directed? It has to be focused and directed from somewhere but I'm not in the loop with all of that. All I know is what I personally experience and what I hear about. It's a time of rough winds and rough waters. It's a time of confusion and great uncertainty. Those who are the bad guys, or masquerading as good guys, who are also bad guys and those who could be anything, since it's so hard to tell a lot of the time, have been at it and are at it all over the world. I don't want to give too much attention and commentary to them. They've been at it, in one form or another, for a very long time. It doesn't seem fruitful to me to keep bringing it up. I did notice this and further down the page you see a head-shot of The David Rocke himself, as a link to some other horrific thing he's engaged in. The point though... if a picture is worth a thousand words then this one qualifies as a guaranteed collective of invective and an offense against the sense employed to perceive it.
To me, it seems like the main concern that I have, maybe this applies to many others, is to not get dragged down into the darker realms, simply because of the intensity of the pressure. That's no easy task. It requires a discipline of both heart and mind that is not easy to maintain at the level of consistency that is required. You almost need some kind of robo-attribute that will operate independent of your occasionally flagging attention and determination.
The weather here has been reflecting the general mental and emotional climate that I am all too hyper-aware of. It's been gray and often rainy as well. Occasionally the sun comes out for part of a day or a few hours and then just goes back behind the clouds. It's like that now, though I hear tomorrow will be different. There's always tomorrow, isn't there? Until the day when there isn't.
I don't know what I thought was going to happen over the course of this last dreadful decade. I guess I mostly listened to all of those experts and seers that seemed so plugged in and had degrees for this or that and were important enough or persistent enough to get the space on one airwave or another, be it crass media or the, only less questionable, alternative mediums, be it text or voice or face-time. I sure did hear a lot of projections and opinions and none of them have really amounted to much. I'm guessing in their own minds they have had some success because these will be the things that they point to, in place of all the other things that were, more or less, off the wall.
I have finally arrived at the place where I don't believe anything I hear, unless it comes out of some several thousand year old tradition, that talks in a general way, about the calamities and misfortunes that descend on a world, that is far too interested in material culture and indifferent to spiritual things, unless they provide the freedom and justification to wallow in some version of material culture that agrees with temporally approved, scriptural guidelines.
The world of the moment, the ground and turf over which I walk, metaphorically speaking, might as well be made out of molasses. Then again, there is also a literal aspect to that and it doesn't all involve walking.
When you first start to encounter persistent opposition to your efforts, in any particular direction, there are a lot of explanations and excuses you can come up with. You don't want to be immediately paranoid or irrational. You want to make allowances for things you may not be aware of but which you are responsible for. You want to allow for the possibility that it has something to do with timing, or environment... maybe even your associates. Anything is possible in that regard. However, once you've been through the same thing from a great many angles and you still don't have any answers and it continues to be strange, weird and inexplicable and yet, doesn't apply to other things, which go right on happening, without anywhere near the effort or opposition, you kind of have to wonder about a few things. I'm a long time fan of Sherlock's comment, “Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth”. I might have put it a little differently, like this, Once you eliminate the improbable, whatever remains, no matter how impossible, must be the truth. Still, it's all semantics. People often base life and death arguments on semantics. That's because a very great many people assume they have to be right and, of course, they are not. The only people with any hope of being right at some point are those who make no such assumption. That's what “I don't know” is all about.
Accepting that you don't know, profoundly and viscerally, doesn't mean you don't know anything and are a complete dullard and perpetually ignorant. It means you allow the mind that does know everything to know in your stead and you get the benefit of that. If you go on knowing, certain that you must know, despite the consistent evidence to the contrary, as you go, you'll find out a great many things you don't want to know and which you wish you hadn't had to find out. That is actually one of the main themes of life and you see it everywhere around you, every day, unless you're deeply engaged in it and the percentage of that in relation to the population, is determined by the age in which it is taking place. Some of these things are inflexibly so. You can argue about it and cry over it, rage about it or be indifferent to it but none of that changes it.
Some people early on want to change the world and most people just want something out of it for as long as that is possible and the more that 'they' take out of it, the more it takes out of them. The former find out they can't change the world. They might change some part of it for some period of time or they might find, as is often the case, that their efforts corrupted and compromised them. This is how you go from being a do gooder, to a social reformer, to a monster that kills millions of people. Of course you believe your own press as well.
Many things in life are simple to comprehend and easy to see when they are happening to others. It can be a great deal more difficult when it is happening to you. It can be easy to see the self interest and weakness in others but much more difficult to see in yourself, even when you know this. It's set up like that to make you dependent and reliant, to eventually force you to be and therein lies the triumph and the tragedy, depending on what, or who, you rely on.
Any fool could see that there is a divine being, who is intimately integrated in everything we do and everything that happens to us. What any fool cannot see (and which makes most fools doubt what should be self evident) and which often confounds the wise as well, is that they presume to understand how it works and what is expected of them if they really do want to get some idea about that.
There is no telling what kind of trials and torments you might get put through, no matter how sincere your intentions are, or how devoted you may be or think you are. Any kind of event might come. Any kind of situation might present itself. Any kind of passion or problem may rear its head in a true WTF? manner. That's how it can be, especially in times like these.
Some people think the Avatar has already arrived and some say the Avatar is here and some say the Avatar is coming and there are arguments that can be made for each of those positions of belief and circumstances, in which all three of them might be simultaneously true. That's the hard thing for most people to get their head around; the type of contradictions and conundrums that can and do exist. The thing is, as has been stated here a number of times when the Avatar comes, the Avatar precipitates down through the planes and comes with a broom. The Avatar sweeps out the negative entities on the inner planes. Some of them have been operating there for a long time. They are a major problem, along the lines of 'powers and principalities', as Wesley said; “For our wrestling is not only, not chiefly, against flesh and blood - Weak men, or fleshly appetites. But against principalities, against powers - The mighty princes of all the infernal legions. And great is their power, and that likewise of those legions whom they command. Against the rulers of the world - Perhaps these principalities and powers remain mostly in the citadel of their kingdom of darkness. But there are other evil spirits who range abroad, to whom the provinces of the world are committed. Of the darkness - This is chiefly spiritual darkness. Of this age - Which prevails during the present state of things. Against wicked spirits - Who continually oppose faith, love, holiness, either by force or fraud; and labour to infuse unbelief, pride, idolatry malice, envy, anger, hatred. In heavenly places - Which were once their abode, and which they still aspire to, as far as they are permitted”.
When they get swept off their thrones, there is nowhere for them to go except outward into the physical realm, where they inhabit the bodies of those willing to host them. This is for the purpose of judgment and all of it is for the purpose of demonstration. Some things to think about, as if we didn't have enough of that already.
