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!

In the Land of Tamil and Sunshine.

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

May your noses always be cold and wet.

Ah well, the world did not end. I had had my suspicions that it would not and strangely enough, so far, they have proven accurate. As I may have mentioned; I get the impression that maybe it is only the darkness which has ended and- quoth the raven, “nevermore” so, we’ll keep on rocking in the unfree world until we are given further marching orders.

There are cows everywhere, as well as dogs and monkeys and, of course, people. The cows are more than passing odd. Sometimes they stand like frozen statues (what other kind are there?) facing up the road or down the road, with their heads extended on their necks as if peering into the future, or some land seen only by them. The dogs are also strange. They generally mind their own business but you do have to watch yourself walking certain places and I guess I don’t have to tell you about the monkeys or the nagas, which are best left entirely alone in any case, unless you got some kind of dispensation.

The mountain seen from my window, or at any point where you have a skyline, is called Arunachala and that is where Ramana Maharshi lived for over 50 years. The mountain is considered to be Shiva and Ramana an incarnation of him. By this time, the testimony of thousands who met him when he was here, attest to the likelihood that he most certainly was a self realized soul ...but the reader can look into that if they want to. There is a road that runs for 18 kilometers around the mountain and last Sunday people were walking around it all day and all night. It was some kind of an auspicious date. I did not do this. I am waiting for my friend Roy to arrive tomorrow before I head up into the mountain. We had talked about doing it and so, in my mind, I thought we would do it together.

There is no real way to describe or explain India at all. You can discuss aspects of it and try your hand at vignettes but India, in many ways, lies beyond the reach of words. I will say, right off the bat that it is the most spiritual place I have ever been and has greeted me (except for certain technical difficulties) with open arms. There’s no doubt about my being welcome here.

There is a larger highway that runs along the mountain and all alongside it are saddhus sleeping on the sidewalk, sitting there or walking by, while monkeys scamper along the wall behind them. There’s a Sri Ramana Maharshi mini mart on this road and they told me to take my shoes off when I went in. I found this highly amusing as the mart has nothing to do with Ramana except for the name. They do a brisk business with westerners by providing things you can’t get elsewhere and which many westerners seem to want.

I’m not planning on going anywhere besides here except for the Kumbha Mela. I see no point in traveling from town to town in an ever increasing state of exhaustion and disorientation. My friend Roy has a friend named Abul who got me a place to stay next door to him; something far beyond anything I expected and at a price that would not be expected at all, since I have seen other places where the cost for much less is the same. Abul is a professional photographer and it turns out he is going to the Kumbha Mela and offered to take me along. This is uncanny because there is nowhere to stay or rent there that is not entirely outside my economic spectrum at this time. Now I have somewhere to go and a native to go with. This kind of serendipity has been happening by the day and is welcome in the extreme.

This is a land of the very poor and the very rich, along with the very recently middle classed.

A fellow was by Abul’s yesterday- 81 years old and had met Ramana. He owns 30 acres of land with all kinds of things growing on it and worked by his extended family. He’s got one tooth in his mouth and likes to smoke the ganja. He left bearing away a large collection of return deposit bottles from Abul’s on his bicycle. Apparently he is land rich but really short of cash. Women are not treated very well here in many places and bad things happen to them. People of all ages commit suicide. An 11 year old boy had a quarrel with his sister and so he poured kerosene over himself and set himself on fire. This is some kind of preferred method. There are assaults on women as well, often by relatives.

Before anyone points out to me that it can’t be very spiritual if this is going on, well, we’re talking about a billion people. There are certain to be a few bad eggs. Of course the cities are redolent with material culture, all Bollywooded out and the celebrity worship is sickening but I’m not resident in that spectrum.

Everything is going on in your mind. If you can still your mind so that the sunlight of the self can rise and shine through it then, you’ve got what you came here for, even if you forgot what that was; which is why remembrance is key.

I’ll be leaving this hotel on Monday, Christmas Eve, and a new chapter will come into play. I’ll have greater ease of access to doing these things and probably have the radio show up and running again, give or take a week on all of that because this is India and things operate on manana time here.

The curious case of the western visitors continues. There is a leaden heaviness to so many of them here. They came here for something but... as is ever the case, what they are seeking is inside them and not outside of them and this confuses and I think depresses them. The Indians are smiling and gracious and I really latch on to that and put my hands together and greet them, while most of these visitors seem embarrassed and made uncertain by it all. None of the westerners, with a couple of exceptions seem to want to talk to me but I come off weird wherever I am. I realized pretty much soon after I got here that I wasn't particularly looking for anything but what is destined to happen to me anyway. Some good portion of myself tells me I have found whatever it is that I am after, it just hasn't come into total focus yet.

That said, I will leave you now, so as to get this up and get off on to whatever this day holds for me. Be well and prosper!

And... Merry Christmas!!! Precisely because certain people don’t want you to say it.

Visible,
Hope you have a very merry Christmas as well. I express that to all I talk with, strictly because those people we occasionally speak of have been working to throw Christmas under the bus for many years. If possible, please relate what Christmas is like where you spend it. Thanks for sharing your adventure, and be well,,Rob

HALLELUJAH! THE WORLD DID NOT END! HALLELUJAH! THE OLD WORLD HAS ENDED!. Yesterday WAS the turning point, I tell you, I have seen it with my own eyes. You may think I Lie, but I do Not. I don't understand it AT ALL, but "someone" is explaining it all to me, and my brain is too too slow and little to keep up. Very confusing, Very curious, very mysterious, very beautiful. It will all be clear in time. I can tell you this, it's all a DREAM, and we DREAM it up. We write our stories Ourselves, and the boundaries around us are our limits of understanding. oh oh oh oh Allmighty Creator, THANK YOU SO FOR THIS MOST PRECIOUS OF GIFTS, OUR FREEDOM OF THOUGHT! All is created of Our Thoughts, All is Our Imagination. As we grow in understanding it shall be clearer and clearer. Right now, FUCKING A, WHAT A RIDE! HALLELUJAH! We are DREAMING TOGETHER! HALLELUJAH BROTHERS AND SISTERS!

With wishes of beautiful and good dreams,
I&I (I Am You Are We Are yesyesyes WE ARE - HALLELUJAH!)

In HIS Dream they cannot hurt him, and if they try he will kick their asses. THE FOOL SPEAKS AGAIN! The monsters are only the dark corners of The Mind. ´Shine your beautiful LIGHT PLEASE AND LET US SET THE WORLD ON FIIIIIIRE.

Visible,

Your Indian adventure beckons memories of a 4 month stay there while I was much younger. For many mysterious reasons an opportunity presented itself to go and I had the money earned from years of a paper route to pay my way. Astonishing to me, I did not hesitate to forgo the purchase of my first automobile to jump on board. I still have vivid memories and am grateful for the experience. I have a deep respect for Indians, their Country and I feel the spiritual bond which I'm reminded of every time I cross paths with one.

Hi Guys and

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!! My food store (health food co-op) said they're not allowed to play Christmas music. I'm boycotting Wikipedia cuz they changed BC to BCE (also cuz of da lies dere). Go change your own calendar. Out! Out, you ugly demons.
Staying with relatives (stuff in storage). They watch zombies on da TV alla time (dese are grownups mind ya). Zombie stuff is further degradation of our culture. Vampires were better than zombies (much prettier) but also a degradation (some truth there though - especially Bram Stoker's Dracula). Anne Rice brilliant with vampires.

HALLELUJAH! Yes, Thomas!

Great textiles in India Viz - perhaps a madras tutu for Suzanne and mama. Enjoy big fella. Sending hope and energy.

Well, if The Hobbit portends anything at all, it is to enter 2013 with lowered expectations. Jackson bombed.
"they'll taste better with a little bit of sage" said a dwarf-hungry troll.
"Stick it up your jacksie!!" said a dwarf. Stick it up your jacksie? Certainly Peter and Phillipa could have found room for at least one heartfelt "fuck off!!" But they didn't, so let me offer one to P & P..."fuck off". Oh, and slapstick? They've got slapstick coming out the "jacksie". Beings that had no language in the books are mysteriously given a language in the film. The stone giants which occupy about 6 lines of text in the book are given far too much screen time. Erebor looks great though, I'll give them that. 5 out 10.

Setting yourself on fire is a horrible way to go. I don't understand why anyone would do that. Much better to OD on pills and booze, or eat a gun, if it comes to that. I have made it for 56 years without killing myself, so maybe there's something I'm missing.

As for spirituality, there are spirits all over this planet, but very few people recognize that fact. That includes churchgoers. But I guess you knew that.

If you see John, Paul, George, or Ringo, give them my regards.

Indian Prophecy of 21 December 2012

Mark said...

No one has to believe anything

Vis wrote that, and I agree with the sentiment. And yet I also agree that, here in the U.S., willful ignorance is an epidemic which acts as a roadblock against stopping those engaged in various crimes against humanity. I don't know anything about India, although, once upon a time, I was the bartender at Royal Khyber, a restaurant in Newport Beach, CA. I loved the food, and the all-Indian staff.

The video below shows you just how real chemtrails and Morgellons are, and that a large portion of humanity is or soon will be personally affected by one or both. Perhaps then you will take this to heart.

Before you criticize others who have lived in India for years, you might want to consider the following.

In the beginning, everything is nice, blissful, and awesome. And then you start to see beyond the superficial covering of India and you truly see how screwed up the society is. Maybe not as screwed up as America, but it comes close.

The truth is, indians are some of hte most corrupt and selfish people you will ever meet.

I don't mean to rain on your parade, and enjoy the innocence of India while you can. Best to not stay there too long, or else you will see the real nature of the modern Indian society, and you will become just as disgusted with them as you are with modern American society.

Pussy soldier girl;

No man, but one has laid his life on the line for me. The simple fact that your mom and dad or lack there of has created another vampire-pussy is concrete like the mausoleums you help fill.

Unimaginative parents create cyborg progeny to faithfully goosestep into the boots of murders, rapist, and thieves.

You've never protected one second of anyone's freedom. You stole freedom and if your homeless and broke because of it I would call that balance.

I will feed an orphan or widow created by a soldier before I ever feed an impenitent man whose mind is an imploding sun and his heart, a black hole.

You were told like everyone else: "If you live in your sin, then you die in your sin." I shed no tears for gang members regardless of the colors they brandish.

I forgive you for being a murderer or conspirator to the act, but nothing else until you request mercy and find grace, LEGION.

The church perished on the cross for it to be in-dwelling and made of flesh and spirit, not a building or a book.

Hey there, "g" person -

The individual who posted the piece about being a soldier from New York was obviously making it up. It was a joke. You seriously need to either lower the dosage of whatever it is you are taking, or think a little harder about the actual reality of a situation at any given moment, versus your snap-judgment perception of what you think is going on.

In any event, you display the EXACT same sort of judgmental, hateful, vicious, and zombie-like behavior of those whom you were accusing in your rant. That is funny in itself, but what is even funnier is that you will never see this about yourself (because, brother, you chugged some serious Kool-Aid and you now think you know it all).

All you "awake" people at this place really kill me - most of you are no different than those you are trying to supplant. And that's the cosmic joke surrounding it all. Your main complaint is that you aren't on top, pulling the puppet strings yourselves, and making all the money. Your main complaint is, nobody has actually recognized you for your self-perceived "genius" and offered you what you perceive to be your rightful place in the hierarchy of the Elite. Freakin' hilarious!

This place truly does give me some serious laughs - and with that being said, I truly hope all of you hypocrites will keep doing what you are doing here. It's like visiting a way station for the spiritually retarded and the galactically stupid...guaranteed to make people laugh out loud, if they can actually ferret out truth for themselves.

Carry on!

since you have nothing to offer

why do you people go out of

Awareness is a continuous process, and not a static absolute. Whatever is stated reveals both the described, and the describer recursively. Solid facts and sound reasoning always support those whom abide in the truth, and for those courageous enough to embrace it their consciousness will be increased in proportion to their courage and desire. Those whom desire power embrace the lie, and as a consequence their consciousness is decreased in proportion to their desire. The Holocaust is a lie, and the truth is Jews did nine-eleven. The truth renders powerful lies of domination powerless, and empowers those dominated by them. Merry Christmas, Blissful Yule, and a Happy New Year to all.

Anonymous black hole at 1:31. My name is Aaron Bell. (The Ringing Mountain) so's use could learns somfin.

I had the Elite money and ideas etc. All the hiway signs you see at merge's along our fine roads with little ad plaques from various corps; mine. Dry-erase refrigerator magnets for schools, apartments, home and office; mine. In 2003 I took $300 and turned it into $16 mil by 2008; all gone and given back. The list goes on, but, it all came from prayer and internal dialogue with the in-dwelling God.

Today I choose to carry $25 in my pocket and give away everything that is over and above what flows to me daily for my need in the Now.

No-thing exists outside before arriving inside, ever. I gave up my Elite way of thinking. IF, I were to be made sovereign of Earth my commandments would stay the same as they have been for eternity: One God-One Love for each other. The rest on the list would come naturally which is why they came after the first 2.

Regardless of the event horizon in your chest and the sucking noise of arrogance and selfishness that resides behind your eyes; I love and forgive you, but you are commanded to come back in a lower station if you refuse to release your anger, hate and fear before your time is up again on this spin. Those who are given much are expected of much, my child.

Aaron Bell aka "g" aka Whomever -

Let me gladly partake in our little verbal ping-pong game here, as, in typical troll fashion, you ignored it the first time. (Speaking of which, you aren't related to Ray B. by any chance are you? I digress...)

You made a blistering, judgmental, hate-filled comment, which was aimed at a poster who was not making a serious statement to begin with - the poster was displaying tongue-in-cheek humor. The poster was NOT a soldier; this was evident to anyone who read the post and actually let it digest.

I pointed out to you how your rantings were elitist and misguided. No matter, here you are again, puffing your chest out and trying to prove how "godly" and "spiritual" you are.

My initial point was, you are as spiritual as a canned ham. But then, you board trolls are all the same (whether you are paid trolls, or programmed trolls who unwittingly do the work of the elite for them). You castigate others; you are caught out by someone at the board - they point out your faulty assertions and your tendency toward character assassination (even when your assertions are wrong to begin with, in terms of whose character it is that you happen to be assassinating), and you IGNORE that you were caught red-handed doing exactly that which you identify in others; you never apologize; you continue to act as if you are spiritual beyond all comprehension.

Like I said, this place is hilarious. Please do continue to explain yourself, while ignoring the character-assassinating behavior you initially exhibited (which you let fly because you misinterpreted the intent of a poster), which began this whole back-and-forth process here.

It's so...comedic, yes, but, um...how shall I say it...it's so FUNDIE CHRISTIAN! (i.e., "Elitist"; i.e, you are mind-controlled and you don't know it; and sir, I ask you this, how can you stop being a machine, when you don't first realize that you ARE a machine? - the short answer is, you can't. Which is the overall point I was trying to make here - a point that has now been slam-dunk made, if you only have eyes to see.)

Would a machine put a light bulb at the top of his resume that says "I'M A FUCKIN GENIUS" in the bulb? That's better than saying "fuck you and your job and I'm more intelligent than you are". They need to hear it! And then under Salary Requirements write "A blowjob and a taco"? [I've been thinking about girls a lot]

Everyone is a genius in their own way, albeit in some it’s hard to see. Reality is like a pie; everyone gets a slice, although the proportions may vary. With crafted illusions come delusions over the apparent successful confusions, and the consequent abominations. You deceived yourself Satan, and reality is going to bitch-slap you silly simpleton. You were only part of the system, and never the whole. All your dichotomies belong to us; we have transcended while you are ensnared in your own diabolical trap. The poetry of the universe is written in cosmic irony. Really, could it ever be any other way? Verily, you will be judged by your own standard; never forgive, never forget. The universe is perfectly fair.

There is some serious mind-control going on in this joint. And if you aren't a Party Line Kool-Aid Drinker you get ram-rodded by those who can't think for themselves. Yawn. I think all of you people who slam others without provocation, should get together and write out a Manifesto (maybe Visible could help you, since it's his board) and explain in a precise, outlined, word-for-word fashion, exactly what can, and what can't, be stated here. Basically, fine-tune and distill your agenda down, into written fashion, to the point where all board visitors will have explicit dos and don't to follow; you know, like they have in virtually any city these days. You see signs that spell out appropriate and inappropriate (i.e., criminal) behavior inside buses, train stations, public buildings - heck you can now see them on sidewalks in any major city. And while you're at it, perhaps you could rewrite the dictionary as well, and delete all the words you don't like. Or maybe you could just put all dictionaries in jail, or burn them. And all other books that don't jibe with your particular Party Line (i.e., Israel is responsible for all evil; chemtrails don't exist; Mr. Apocalypse is coming - oops, guess he missed that bus on 12/21, eh? - etc.). You guys can continue to pile on like the machines you are, whenever real truth hits you in the face via the comments posted here - but the truth is still the truth. You can't wish it away, or scream it away, or imprison it away. If you are after the truth, like you claim you are, you would not belittle anyone for their views. If you truly don't know anything, as so many people here are so fond of saying, you would walk that talk, 24/7. But you don't. You pile on and belittle and cast aspersions at anyone who has the audacity to think outside the Party Line box. I have read Visible's constant proclamations about how he knows nothing - but I have also seen him pound away at people for stating things that don't adhere to his Party Line. This is just an observation - a stating of obvious facts. No judgment involved. (And even Visible can't object to that...) It's true - nobody knows everything, and the open-minded will allow and encourage different viewpoints. (In the search for truth.) But no, not around here. Anybody who gets out of line and starts laying real truth out for the readership, is a "Zio-Troll" or a "Hasbara boy". Blasting others for their differing viewpoints (and the evidence that backs up those viewpoints) is a dead giveaway that your brain has either been co-opted, or you are on the payroll of the Dark Side. So...come on, come on, pile on me again. Blast me. Leave your heavy footprints in the sand for all to see. I guarantee you won't attack the message I am giving here (because it's true) - you will just continue to attack the messenger. Which will prove my point in itself. If a few of my right hooks wake a few readers up here, and discourages them from chugging the entire pitcher of ANYBODY'S Kool-Aid, well, that is my aim. That's why I bother to spar with Spiritual Special Olympians. Here's the main thing I want to impart: Don't follow Pied Pipers who won't tolerate different viewpoints. Don't EVER do it. These Pied Pipers are the exact same beings whom you have been trying to escape all these years. Different masks, same controlling, brainwashing tactics. Have a wonderful Christmas - those of you who can think for youselves, anyway. The rest of you? I don't really care how your Christmas goes, as other people do your thinking for you, and those people who DO control your thinking, well, they control you, too, which means you work for them (unwittingly), and I hope, in that case, that you get a lot worse than a lump of coal in your stockings...

The measure of intellect is how far one can go before being confounded by contradiction. Go far enough, and the contradictions are necessary to balance the whole. To Mr. V’s credit he goes farther than most before reaching his conceptual limitations, which is something we are all bound by. When any of us are in error, and to some degree all of us are, the water will simply pass us by until it becomes undeniable. Why is it any surprise that a group will take on characteristics of being a group when coalescing around shared ideas? The Tribe makes no attempt whatsoever to be fair and impartial, and yet it always demands that very thing from the opposition its behavior creates. This is by design, and is part and parcel of the Machiavellian modus operandi. If anything, Mr. V can be faulted for being too kind, too forgiving, and too loving. In the end we are all steeping stones.

The trolls who post here (@anonymous 1:31) from time to time are obviously scared of losing con-TROLL, and they have damn good reason to be. They are losing control, no matter how much money they steal, no matter how many people they kill, no matter how much information they suppress regarding their nefarious deeds. Whadda fucking nightmare for the con-TROLL freaks!

On another note, I found this link recently regarding the Israeli's interest in using MDMA to treat post traumatic stress disorder in America and Israel:

http://www.maps.org/research/mdma/mdma_ptsd_israel_study/

Now the fact of Israeli involvement in the black market trade of MDMA is no shocker to me, but I wonder what their motives could be for trying to use it to experiment on American soldiers?? I have some theories of my own, but just curious as to what some of you may be thinking about this?

Cause and effect reflecting upon itself is more of the same. All complexity is derived from simplicity. The spin cycle is the caldron of the double helix, and you are a dynamic double helix. You are the creation of the great washing machine, and are one of its parts doing a wash, being washed, and agitating the wash.

In this Kali yuga the demons are very very powerful, exhibiting relentless energy of deceit, vileness.


BY: PALAKA DAS

Dec 27, 2012 — USA (SUN) —

In the presence of Srila Prabhupada we all learned this:

cheto-darpana-marjanam bhava-maha--davagni-nirvapanam
shreyah-kairava-chandrika-vitaranam vidya-vadhu-jivanam
anandambudhi-vardhanam prati-padam purnamritaswadanam
sarvatma-snapanam param vijayate sri-krishna-sankirtanam

Glory to the Sri-Krsna-Sankirtana, which cleanses the heart of all the dust accumulated for years and extinguishes the fire of conditional life, of repeated birth and death. This sankirtana movement is the prime benediction for humanity at large because it spreads the rays of the benediction moon. It is the life of all transcendental knowledge. It increases the ocean of transcendental bliss, and it enables us to fully taste the nectar for which we are always anxious.

(Sri Caitanya's Siksastaka)



And now they are teaching this -- their new translated version:

"Let there be all victory for the chanting of the holy name of Lord Krsna, which can cleanse the mirror of the heart and stop the miseries of the blazing fire of material existence. That chanting is the waxing moon that spreads the white lotus of good fortune for all living entities. It is the life and soul of all education. The chanting of the holy name of Krsna expands the blissful ocean of transcendental life. It gives a cooling effect to everyone and enables one to taste full nectar at every step."

Hi Sim, could you please let me know if there is a way to make donation other then through PayPal? Kind regards, Lane

Sim said...

Hello Lane...

PayPal is it, as far as I know, sorry... but you don't need a PayPal account to get money to Vis.

(Sorry if this is a bit convoluted)

Don't use the PP button in the sidebar... instead, go to his music store - choose an album to buy.

OK, the transaction is run through PayPal but you do NOT need a PP account for this. Just choose the "guest" option once on the PP page and you can use a debit or credit card. (And in CASE the page appears in German (thanks PP) look for the link which says:

Sie haben kein paypal-konto
Mit Lastschrift oder Kreditkarte als PayPal-Gast



How easy is that? Easy enough to repeat the process and buy 2 albums maybe? (ho ho)

Happy New Year to you.

Bhagavad-gītā As It Is 18.61

TRANSLATION

The Supreme Lord is situated in everyone's heart, O Arjuna, and is directing the wanderings of all living entities, who are seated as on a machine, made of the material energy.

---------------------------

Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 5.23.4

TRANSLATION

This great machine, consisting of the stars and planets, resembles the form of a śiśumāra [dolphin] in the water. It is sometimes considered an incarnation of Kṛṣṇa, Vāsudeva. Great yogīs meditate upon Vāsudeva in this form because it is actually visible.

PURPORT

Transcendentalists such as yogīs whose minds cannot accommodate the form of the Lord prefer to visualize something very great, such as the virāṭ-puruṣa. Therefore some yogīs contemplate this imaginary śiśumāra to be swimming in the sky the way a dolphin swims in water. They meditate upon it as the virāṭ-rūpa, the gigantic form of the Supreme Personality of Godhead.

PURPORT

After changing bodies, the living entity forgets his past deeds, but the Supersoul, as the knower of the past, present and future, remains the witness of all his activities. Therefore all the activities of living entities are directed by this Supersoul. The living entity gets what he deserves and is carried by the material body, which is created in the material energy under the direction of the Supersoul. As soon as a living entity is placed in a particular type of body, he has to work under the spell of that bodily situation. A person seated in a high-speed motorcar goes faster than one seated in a slower car, though the living entities, the drivers, may be the same. Similarly, by the order of the Supreme Soul, material nature fashions a particular type of body to a particular type of living entity so that he may work according to his past desires. The living entity is not independent. One should not think himself independent of the Supreme Personality of Godhead. The individual is always under the Lord's control.

Karma certainly believes in all of us.

Yet there is one way.
There just has to be..

Les Visible prabhu realizes how to influence karma.
It's not really that hard at all. "Just think of Me"

I've heard him say as much several times.

I just received a mail from Vis - all is well with him, and we can expect a new posting soon.

He also says thanks for hanging in there!

Thanks Sim... just checking in for that exact message. I'm presuming Vis is having many great experiences and don't want any of our needs or expectations to get in the way of THAT.

Holy cow Clarity!

That's some brutally honest link.

Satan's demonic philosophy is abhorrent even when rendered in black and white and stale yellow.

The same illustrations presented in (non)living color would likely be unpopular, unbearable and offensive.

Is it odd that the closer a society's collective realization approaches the truth, the less likely the truth is accepted, or acceptable?

All the children should know. Really know, not just pretend to know like the adults do.

They should know all those living animals belong to God and dear Mother Nature.

There has been a small advance the last couple of decades but it's such a huge monstrous curse this progression ultimately resides within the individual.

Kali yuga and all..

Best wishes for you!

Sri Samkatanasana
Ganesa Stotram
Narada Purana


Sri Narada says:

1. With head bowed, let me unceasingly worship in my mind the god Vinayaka, the son of Gauri, the refuge of his devotees, for the complete attainment of longevity, amorous desires and wealth.

2. Firstly, as the one with the twisted trunk. Secondly, as the one with the single tusk. Thirdly, as the one with the fawn colored eyes. Fourthly, as the one with the elephants mouth,

3. Fifthly, as the pot-bellied one, Sixthly, as the monstrous one, Seventhly, as the king of obstacles, Eighthly, as the smoke colored one

4. Ninethly, as the moon crested one, Tenthly, as the remover of hindrances, Eleventhly, as the Lord of the hordes, Twelfthly, as the one with the elephants face.

5. Whosoever repeats these twelve names at dawn, noon and sunset, for him there is no fear of failure, nay, there is constant good fortune.

6. He who desires knowledge obtains knowledge. He who desires sons gets sons. He who desires salvation obtains the way.

7. Whosoever mutters the hymn to Ganapati reaches his aim in six months, and in a year reaches perfection, on this point there is no doubt.

8. Whosoever makes eight copies of it, and has them distributed to as many brahmans, he reaches knowledge instantaneously, by the grace of Ganesh.
