Surfing the World's of Light in the Footsteps of The Master.

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

May your noses always be cold and wet.

Welcome to this Christmas Eve and at the risk of being redundant, Merry Christmas!!! Of course, it being Christmas I need to talk about Jesus 'the' Christ. Jesus as world teacher, as Wayshower, as revolutionary- take no crap from the moneychangers. As Bill Maher, Zio-Satanist shill and mouthpiece likes to say, "Well you know who they mean when they say, 'moneychangers?" Yes Bill, as a matter of fact we do.

Some decades ago, I lived with an Archbishop of the Old Catholic Church; friend of Vanderbilts and sundry, as well as many another curious public figure. One of them was Kalil Gibran. I was at the time a huge fan of Gibran (still am) and I used to ask Father Francis (as he was called) about him. He once told me, "He was a very sweet man but he drank too much wine." Gibran wrote a relatively unknown book called, "Jesus the Son of Man". In this Christmas hour, let me gift you with a digital copy! It is a most unique book about those in various professions and how they saw this teacher through the lens of their professions. Gibran was a true mystic and as with all true mystics, could bring you to tears with the beauty of his inspired articulation. The beauty of his soul attracted the attentions and ministrations of a high muse and we are the beneficiaries of this relationship.

I lived with Father Francis on Mead's Mountain in Woodstock. He was a cantankerous fellow and I was the least loved among those who came and went there, no doubt due to my lack of orthodoxy and he was none too fond of the ladies that came around to visit me. I was in celibacy mode but I doubt he trusted me on that. His preferences were 'otherwise' focused as are so many of the representatives of that faith. When I knew him he was in his 90's. Sometimes the power of the connection he had would display itself in his tea time talks. It was enervating. Regardless of his moral failings; more of the mind than of active expression (I think), he was still used by the invisible hierarchy for what good there was in him. I am in his debt. He got me out of the West Street Federal Detention Center in NYC when they were looking to shanghai me up the river yet again for the usual charge of being a public menace, although they called it something else of course. I miss Woodstock, even if it is known as the Jewish Rockies.

Anyway, back to the man of the hour. Some number of people have gotten after me about my outspoken support and celebration of Christmas. Why it is that people feel that I 'have to' mirror their own contempt of the event escapes me. I live in a house where the residents are none too appreciative of the meaning of this time. They, like so many, got hijacked by the corruption of religions and the awful toll that materialism has taken upon the real meaning of this time. I'm from the school that "Ye must be as a little child to enter the kingdom." I don't get brought low by appearances and wind up all cynical and empty of the bounty of spirit that walks abroad in this season. Where is the profit and the good in that? Just because people ruin the moment for themselves does not mean I have to follow suit. Go ahead and wallow in your lack of wonder, awe and joy; not me, not me. I am fair to bursting with Christmas spirit at the moment and I don't care two figs and a wheelchair for the naysaying negativists who have purged their life of all innocence. You're stuck in your own boat with yourself. I'm not.

I see Jesus the Christ as a warrior. You can see him as The Prince of Peace (not that the Christian tradition reflected that in any way over the centuries), a healer, or a teacher of the peoples. I see him as a warrior for truth against the pervading temporal darkness of this depraved age. I see him as a man of unshakable courage and conviction. I see him as integrity personified, one in whom all the qualities of the ineffable were invested and expressed. I see him as a shining example of how one might come to be; an inspiration and a guide and I have no interests in religions, dogma, avaricious and power hungry priests or any off the other 'for profit' scams that always try to lamprey on to the aftermath of the lives of those who gave their all.

What I believe about Jesus the Christ is that his blood was the currency that bought and paid for the age we live in. When the blood fell, it nourished and spiritualized the Earth and everything in it that was so disposed to be lifted or ignited by it. I had no interest in the historical Jesus, or any of the religious porn that proliferates in the hypocritical speeches of pathological sophists. I believe that Jesus Christ is the solar logos and the word made flesh. I understand the metaphysical meaning of it in the only place where such things matter, in my heart. All true lovers of God love every legitimate appearance of that force, in whatever outfit, culture or language it appears in. I love the Buddhas and the prophets, the gods and goddesses, the saints, mystics and jnana yogis AND the Ahora too. I love them all and see no conflict in any of the teachings and traditions in their essence. I've no interest in arguing any of it with any of the dogma-drones, fundie garbage heads and tight assed 'send you to Hell', self righteous fountains of hypocrisy. Tell your story walking. The door is thataway.

I love Christmas. I only see what I want to see and that works for me. I love Easter and Diwali and all those festivals and celebrations that venerate the light. People get trapped in their heads and then they get insufferably pretentious. They're all tangled up in the little they know and puffed up with all kinds of vanities over their exalted states of reasoning and logic and they don't know a damn thing. I literally cringe when self important pseudo intellectuals come around and start hairsplitting with me, while never getting whatever it was I said in the first place. They want to argue but the whole point of their arguing is that they want me to know just how smart and well informed they are. It's all about prancing and posing and wanting me to admit that they are a formidable equal and that it is in my best interests to accept whatever they have to say and it just bores me to tears. I'm not interested in any of it. I just want to commune with the infinite and hope you have the good sense to do the same.

It took me awhile to realize that all these pundits and park bench prophets weren't interested in hearing anything. They were just waiting for their turn to speak, which is when they would spin like a top, enthralled in the magic of their presumed eloquence and the denser and more convoluted their arguments were, the more they liked it. Well, the fact is that only Love counts and the rest of it is no different than what you get mucking out a horse stall. One of the main tenets of wisdom is quietude and a serenity devoid of internal conflict, which expresses itself in an external lack of the same. Every bonafide teacher I met was as humble as dirt. They knew about the awesome and immeasurable, incomprehensible excellence of the ineffable and... what that made them by comparison. If you don't know that you don't know much. Arguing is a sure sign that you missed the point.

Jesus the Christ is an internal affair. I remember a tale about a monk who was cleaning out a stable when Christ supposedly appeared in front of him. His reaction was, "Be gone or I will fill your mouth with what I have on this shovel." His point being, Christ appears within, not without ...and the Second Coming of Christ will be in the hearts of humanity and it shouldn't be long now. Certainly it is imminently pending in any particular heart that is open to it at any time.

It's not my place to judge or censure people who want to harangue me with their pet theories. That doesn't mean I don't do so (grin). What it does mean is that, regardless of my occasionally unfortunate responses, I don't personally believe I'm right or that I know anything. I know it's possible I'm not and that I don't. I play a role for various purposes and until lately I went out of my way in regular fashion to expose flaws and shortcomings in myself and all of that is to keep us on even footing, as a company of equals. I'm not letting myself get put on a pedestal, nor am I wearing a dress for that purpose (grin). I'm just one more walker on the road. If some of my thoughts and experiences are useful then make use of them. Otherwise discard them. It may not have been for you anyway. A lot of the time I'm not writing into the present. I'm writing into the future, for times when much of what gets said here might become relevant. Very often what doesn't make sense at one point will make sense later on. I know that things I came across didn't reveal themselves to me at the time I heard or saw them. A digestion was required, after which the information was booted back up out of the subconscious into a form I could understand.

I don't bear any ill will toward those seeking to unhorse, slander or offend me, nor am I affected by it. The only criticisms I consider are the ones that rise out of my conscience later on. In the meantime all judgment is held in abeyance until I get the word from my minder.

So, on this day before Christmas, this is what I had to say, as it was told to me before I said it (grin), according to my own peculiar process and how it applies to me. That said, Merry Christmas!!! Do something nice. Be nice to someone, in the spirit of it.

Ray B. said...

Vis, a very empathetic column. Thanks. And worth reminding about not getting caught up in the historical crap and forgetting the 'holy'...

I had a nice Christ Mass present a couple days ago. I went to see the second "Hobbit" movie and had an inner occurrence. Without blowing the plot, at one point a female Elf is doing a healing. The presence, the light, and whatever caused me to slip into contact with my friends, the (real) elves. My heart filled, my consciousness expanded, and my head spontaneously bowed/nodded in recognition of their state; quite unbidden. It brightened my day - and the days to come.

Quote of the Day: "You're stuck in your own boat with yourself. I'm not."

(Reminds me of the old "Mythbusters" tee-shirt, "I reject your reality, and substitute my own.")

Merry Christ Mass,
Ray B.

Hey Les,

According to scripture Christ's blood was shed in payment for the sins of mankind, to redeem mankind (i.e. to 'buy back' mankind from Satan the usurper) from a debt we're unable to pay (having mostly to do with spirit realm stuff). The gospels explain it fairly well, especially the gospel of Luke. The 19th century French philosopher and philologist Ernest Renan said of the book of Luke that it is the most beautiful book that has ever been written. Luke also wrote the book of Acts (which I think should have been titled 'll Luke').

Regarding Jesus' birthday, here's a link to an interesting article in which their astronomical analysis proves that Jesus' birth was on Sept. 11, B.C. 3. The Satanists have held this belief for hundreds of years. The Zionist Neocons (who are Satanists) also perpetrated the 911 false flag incident. I find it interesting that they chose Sept. 11 to do it, probably as a 'birthday present' for Jesus, because they hate him more than they hate anyone. Anyway, here's the link:

http://www.versebyverse.org/doctrine/birthofchrist.html



As for Christmas (Dec. 25) being the alleged date of Jesus' birth, the Canaanites were celebrating the winter solstice almost 3000 years before Jesus was born. In the ritual they had a tree (phallus symbol), a wreath (vagina symbol), and they exchanged gifts. The ritual was in honor of Baal, a spirit they believed had the power to grant them successful agriculture, and to insure that their women would bear children. Later in history the Babylonians called him Bel. Later on the Greeks called him Cronos. Later on the Romans called him Saturn. Same spirit but with different names in different cultures and time periods. The Romans held a ritual in his honor which they called Saturnalia, which was held during the winter solstice period. The biggest and most elaborate temple in Rome was the temple of Saturn, it was built in the 5th century B.C.Their belief was that the sun god died on the day of the winter solstice (Dec. 22) and was resurrected from the dead three days later. Hence the Dec. 25 'birthday' celebration. In the third century A.D. the Catholic priestclass transposed Saturnalia into their emasculated brand of Christianity and called it 'Christmas.'

Vis,

Merry Christmas to you too!

People seem to think "Christ" is the surname of Jesus! It likely should be written as: "Jesus the Christed." The second coming of Christ shall indeed arise within us. I was just listening to "Messiah" and looked up the libretto:

"... darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and His glory shall be upon thee."

So far, we've certainly got the gross darkness part. Then, near the end:

"The trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised, the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed."

Surely we, right now, are the "dead," and we shall be changed...

John

DumbGoyNot said...

Another thing that is interesting about it is that the Canaanite ritual dates and practices have remained unchanged for almost 5000 years. Kingdoms, empires, cultures, nations, and governments, have come and gone, yet these ritual dates have remained unchanged. That's because the rituals are empowered and overseen by the spirits who wanted them put in place. The so-called 'Christmas spirit' is none other than the same spirit the Canaanites called 'Baal.' He desires to be the spirit that can provide for all the needs of man, and to be able to cure all the ills of man. He seeks to promote peace and good will among men, and he knows how to make people feel better about themselves. He is the counterfeit of the Holy Spirit in other words. The Apostle John called him 'The Spirit of Antichrist.' The actual Greek translation for Antichrist is 'Other than Christ' or 'Counterfeit Christ.' He is the second most powerful of the principalities (fallen angels), second in power only to Satan himself. The Apostle John also called him 'The Beast' in Revelation chapter 13. He is all sweetsie-sweet and nicie-nice to those who play along with him, but to his enemies he suddenly manifests as the spirit of genocide. To everyone else in-between he manifests as the spirit of top-down-control, the spirit of idolatry, and the spirit of looking back. He rules the world mainly in his role as the spirit of top-down-control (e.g. heads of state, religious priestclasses, heads of corporations, medicine, academia, etc.).

The principalities first recorded contact with humans was with the Canaanites almost 5000 years ago. The first thing they did was to instruct the Canaanite priestclass to institute rituals in their honor, the winter solstice 'new birth' ritual, the spring fertility ritual, and the fall death ritual (our Christmas, Easter, and Halloween). The reason it was so important to the principalities to have the people do the rituals was because they knew that it would give them rights of control over those who participate in the rituals.

Curtis Matthew Ellsworth said...

Try to make this short and sweet or what not. Nice backdrop! Just listened to a tale on youtube in german two days ago about Soma mushrooms and an initiation rite that Jesus went through in Egypt. Gonna do more research on that. My intuited take on Jesus and certain types, the people in "high places", doing low down things, is that they're on a crash course with one another, given that gangster types don't know what no means, know no decent types of love, and don't know how to stop, bearing in their idiotic mind that there will be no consequences, and it brings the lion-esque warrior side of him out. Other than true satanists being "handled", he's more about the peace-based aspects of establishing a truth-based, highly functional, new paradigm based on the more lighted, utopian, heavenly kingdoms that's he's rather familiar with and whose denizens stood the test of time (much, much time) by his side as comrades in arms against hellian types. Obviously, just my take, though there are some strange coincidences that may not be as such, coincidences, given how the Cosmos rolls there that leads me to believe in what I'm saying, which, like Les said, isn't at all knowing. Never the point of faith, the knowing part, though clues and signs, inferential in nature, are never out of the picture, just hard to explain, being a part of the ineffable, esoteric rubric. Not everything in that rubric is ineffable, to be sure, just a lot. Much like Les has been saying, and this is just my, personal take along those lines too, evil hasn't much time before it, being ran by darkness, runs into the light of the truth and then it's bye byes time for many a compromised idiot throughout the world. One of the other points of the Cosmos is to put everything out and all at once so that there's little equivocation about what was a lie and what was truth, catching certain, whole groups of people up, who are not hardcore satanic in nature but who've been, unwittingly, running interference for said hellians, in the fact-based notion that they've been BSing themselves about one too many plot lines about being plotted on that many couldn't and wouldn't follow, given how many types of popularized cleopatraitis were going around. At any rate, it's just a weird test, much of life, and I wish everyone here a Merry Christmas and a preemptive, Happy New year.

i was thinking, what is this place,
why have we gathered here together ?

one of my favorite 'quotes', "when
two or more are gathered in my name, i am there, also"

what is there, also ?

when i was in 're-hab' 'dave', the
psychologist, asked in intense group :

"who are you ?" - when it was my turn, i said,
"i am pure awareness, and so are all of you"

'dave' immediately asked the others
"are you buying this ?"

ha they all looked at me quizzically,
but i answered the wrong question

i thought he said 'what are you ?'
you see, that is what we really are

bringing me to my point :
'jesus' was a man, 'the son of god'

as are all of us, gods children
what we share here, is that knowing

the consciousness of the 'christ'
the light and love and forgiveness

available to each of us on this earth
when all else falls away, there is only this

may all of you and our beloved l v
find the peace within your own hearts

and then, perhaps, we can stop hurting each other and recognize in each and all of us, the face of our creator
-

here i include the last thing jimi wrote,
the night before he 'died' :


"The story of jesus
So easy to explain
After they crucified him,
A woman, she claimed his name

The story of jesus
The whole Bible knows
Went all across the desert
And in the middle, he found a rose

There should be no questions
There should be no lies
He was married ever happily after
for all the tears we cry

No use in arguing
All the use to the man that moans
When each man falls in battle
His soul it has to roam

Angels of heaven
Flying saucers to some,
Made easter sunday
The name of the rising sun

The story is written
By so many people who dared,
To lay down the truth
To so very many who cared

To carry the cross
Of jesus and beyond
We will guild the light
This time with a woman in our arms

We as men
Can't explain the reason why

The woman's always mentioned
At the moment that we die

All we know
Is God is by our side,
And he says the word
So easy yet so hard

I wish not to be alone,
So I must respect my other heart

Oh, the story of jesus
Is the story
Of you and me

No use in feeling lonely,
I am you, searching to be free

The story of life is quicker
Than the wink of an eye
The story of love
Is hello and goodbye

Until we meet again"

You're right on the button there Vis, from what I know about the Jesus.

A timely post for the occasion, with a couple of synchronicities aswell. Bonus.

When I have been praying to Jesus lately, (and just last night) it is to make me a warrior. I can't envision my future otherwise.

An old friend was the only person I knew who used the expression "Tell your story walking". I saw him on Monday for the first time in three years. Weird or what?

Christmas morning here, daughter has woken me a bit early. The old mushy chomping shaman has been and gone thru the smoke-hole, presents unwrapped. Clear skies and 30 celsius is the forecast. Cheers Vis and readers. Merry Christmas.

Hi Vis,

Merry Christmas to you and bless your beautiful soul. Your words could have come out of my mouth verbatim. I too only let the guidance from within to resonate and correct, and it works wonders. Thank you dear soul for all your sacrifices, though I understand that to do what you, and I, do it is an honour and not a task. Luv your work, luv your connection to the all, love the fact that you inspire me to be more of what I can be.

Hey Les,

While drinking some of my homemade tomato wine just now, the following thought popped into my mind:

The reason people love he status quo is because it makes them feel safe. Christmas has been one of the foundational tenets of the status quo in America ever since her inception. Most people will never venture outside of the status quo because they fear the unknown, even if the status quo is slowly killing them (and they know it).

Ben said...

Dear Vis, All,

I haven't posted for quite a while but still read all Vis puts up and I find that the majority of it resonates with me.

I try to follow Jesus as my Master and I read His Scriptures and pray (quite a bit) on a daily basis. This is what keeps me "living".

I only really know two things: 1. None of us get out of here alive. 2. Love is the most powerful force in the Universe.

I believe that Jesus the Christ is the personification of Love.

May Jesus the Christ make your hearts merry.

Ben

Merry Christmas Les to you and yours....let us hope the New Year brings forth some new drama and fun for us to behold. Even if it isn't exactly what we are expecting.

the gardener said...

So long ago now I can't remember any details but I read an article about what the one we refer to as "Jesus" was really all about.

Simplifying it: Jesus came back here to earth, he didn't have to, chose to do so, to absolve all humans of their sins which resulted in them having so much 'karma to work off' that they'd never be able to do so regardless of how many life times as the humans were accruing more debt with each life time of involvements than they could ever break even on let alone pay off.

So Jesus was mass humans mass sin eater.

BURRRRRRP

Jesus could have just left everyone to their sinnings in the mires but chose to involve, intervene due to his love for all the souls, with without his interventions/absolutions everyone would just go swirling off into the dank tanks with no further abilities to 'get out of this place'.

So humans got their slates cleared and it hasn't taken to long for us natural born sinners to fill up our plates once again to the overflowing brim...

I pray for the love of Jesus to keep our strings attached to him.

Thank you for all the pretties you've presented raining down on us through your site Les Visible.

Love to you Vis... :)

Praying that Jesus comes to us and gives us direction and the strengths needed to wield the shields, the swords and the lanterns.

Viziji,

MERRY CHRISTMAS

Thank you for the wonderful present. Gibran is very special.

I used to get around the Grinches by telling them I always start Christmas Day with beer for breakfast. That seems to refocus them so we can be allowed JOY. This year I can't afford beer. Oh well. I'm going to settle for cheese crackers and a lovely ripe persimmon. God bless us each and every one.

I live in this great place now with subsidized rent ($204 a month). Everyone living here is poor and everyone TOTALLY BELIEVES in Christmas. They put up delightfully tacky Christmas decorations in the foyer and a Christmas tree. All wonderfully Pagan. Jesus loves it, I'm sure.

"Magic loves the hungry."

Seeing those mushrooms always takes me right back to when i was only 3 years old. I remember so well that it was Christmas, and i having a few pennys in my pocket I went to a small shop in Liverpool and bought a bauble for a Christmas tree. I didn't have a tree as i was staying in a lodging house with my mother and younger brother whilst visiting my father who was working in Liverpool. I remember buying it cos i found it so attractive. Of course i didnt know of John Marco Allegro back then. But those decorations were sure modeled on that particular mushroom :)

Insim/Insaim/Insiam,

I ended up watching that Annie Lennox video over and over - it made my day too. And what a synchronicity with the child at the end!

Blessed Be,

Still reflecting on the capacity of Christ to be blunt, staight forward and ANYTHING but nice.

and a God of Love isn't to be confused with a God of Nice.

Thanks for the uplift and great good fortune all round.
