Surfing the Lowlands with Friends in High Places.

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

May your noses always be cold and wet.

For some reason, it doesn't occur to a lot of people that the entities on the higher planes are far, far more aware than we might imagine them to be and certainly more aware than we are. It is a rare, rare exception when someone physically incarnate, has any kind of parity with the higher ups. It's an unfortunate truth that the quasi spiritual perspective engaged in by followers of the dogmatic side of the religious carnival (that would be most of the practitioners? ...personages? what?) are working through the lens of anthropomorphism, which is not unlike taking photos with the lens cap on, when it comes to getting a clear picture... or should I say an 'accurate' picture of what's what. This don't mean just because we are not seduced into this particular gambit that we automatically understand what's what concerning what is and what is not. It just means we aren't subject to that particular delusion.

Now... I don't know much but... what I do know is that if I am supposed to know something, I'll be informed about it and if it's not pertinent to me, it won't come down the usual chute from which descends all that is relevant to me. This does not mean that I could not become aware of all kinds of things, even things dangerous to my well being ...but appearing rather otherwise, as if they might even be an asset. A lot of people don't share my hesitations about running around in the unknown without a road map (heh heh, I originally wrote 'toad map') or a guide of some kind. This is not to say I wouldn't venture into the unknown behind some high octane comestible at the drop of a hat (cause I would) but... I always immediately run into the same hierarchy of companions so, that falls into the category of having a road map or a guide. I'm talking about other variables of the unknown... All those places where the ingenue, posing as an informed practitioner, saunters forth with the confidence that they are capable of things they have no clue about. Higher forces come in all shapes and sizes and not all of them are impressed by our presumptions and pretensions. In fact, some of them are employed for the very reason of dealing with them.

The single most important thing that any seeker after truth should have uppermost in their minds is a clear understanding of their own insignificance. Probably the best exercise anyone can engage in is to seek after a clear perspective on themselves in relation to the immensity of the cosmos. It's no coincidence, it's no accident, that illuminated souls are the most humble of lifeforms that one can encounter. There are a lot of teachers out there. Some of them are in possession of powerful siddhis and they are quite persuasive and charismatic. This doesn't mean they are in possession of spiritual integrity, or that they can do you any great good in the areas of your greatest need. They can fill you up when you are present with them but... when you are not, well... the radius isn't that great. It's a lot like eating potato chips or any variant of fast food. For some reason you are hungry again quite soon. True jnana yogis and masters are not numerous, especially in these days when so many of the real ones have retreated to distant spaces, to wait out the changes coming. There are some who are moving among us but they aren't generally identified as that. Their true identities are concealed.

This is the time of false prophets and the reign of Mammon and others. One needn't look very far in any direction to see what passes for the icons of this age. The ludicrous contends with the ridiculous and that results in a stalemate of mediocrity. For most, the banality, the tragic embarrassments of the tediously mundane, are not seen in all the execrable detail of their fatuous nature. Being too close up upon anything, compromises the perspective and cripples the objectivity. The comatose cubicles of the subjective, amount to individualized deprivation tanks of loneliness, made all the more torturous because of the close proximity of those alienated from one another by the ubiquitously pervasive angst. It moves like bad perfume through the atmosphere of the day and only a close fellowship with the invisible renders any kind of immunity from this fear. It is, in fact, one's estrangement from the invisible that generates the fear in the first place.

No doubt there are some number of you who wonder why it is that you have not been fortunate enough to be a member of some manifest group of supportive others, in these times when there is such a great need for it; why your circle is so small, why you are a general outcast... or would be, if your thoughts were more widely known to those who are uninformed of what you really think. This is no accident for any of us. In order to swim with a myriad of fish, you have to spend your time in their preferred feeding grounds. This is more than you or I want to endure. Character is often an unfortunate inhibitor of every manner of intercourse. There are some things you simply find yourself unable to do. Maybe it was e.e. cummings who said in one of his poems, "There is some shit I will not eat".

One of the things true poets possess, besides their obvious intimacy with the muse, is their sense of time and their awareness of the eternal. They can see where life is headed and also the beauty that abides in every stage of the journey. This causes their priorities to be a great deal different than most. Despite their privileged relationships, their suffering is also keener than most, albeit for altogether different reasons. True poets, visionaries and mystics are perpetually aware of their separation from the ineffable. It consumes them. Everything wonderful that ever happens to them comes from that source and it is to be expected that they are intensely aware of its absence, when the sense of separation occurs and it surely will, time and time again. This is because there are definite reasons why one must endure regular periods of separation. It's all a part of the package. So many appetites are easily satisfied. Some are not so easy ...but sooner or later, of course, the opportunity will arrive. On the other hand, some appetites cannot be satisfied, unless every other passion is banked first. Sometimes there is no lasting succor at all, here. Sometimes one must wait until they are through the gates for that. It's different for every one of us.

So long as one has a body or, let me put it another way, so long as one has a particular awareness of a body. one is subject to certain conditions. That's just how it is. Bypassing or overcoming this awareness should be the primary objective of everyone who has come here in this remarkable time; made all the more remarkable because so very few are aware of the meaning of it. The true significance of this period is completely concealed beneath a false glitter of no value whatsoever and its sole purpose is to conceal this truth from those deceived by it. Cogito ergo sum.

Let's look at it another way by drawing in something like gravity for example. Gravity hits those with larger body mass and density more so than it does lighter beings. It seems I remember that the bones of birds are hollow, so as to assist them in being flight worthy. Let us say that our affiliation with material concerns adds a certain kind of density to our beings while... at the same time... it alters our relationship to time as well. Time most certainly has a lot of similarities with gravity. Next let us consider the weight that rests upon any of us, considering the degree of our regrets, remorse and the heaviness of memory, which, regardless of our feigned indifference to our own actions, does not fail to make its presence known. So it is that when you let go of all of these things; which first means that you let go of all of your resentments toward others ...and when you do... the possibility of being able to release all of the rest of it becomes ever so much easier. You WILL NOT be able to release the rest of it without doing this first; rationalize it with yourself as you wish... you will NOT BE ABLE to. It's not that hard. Loving the ineffable really helps. In my life I have been the victim of several individuals whose resentment toward me, whether it had to do with a certain level of perceived celebrity of the moment, associations with one of the opposite sex much desired by another or... any of the reasons one might get increasingly more upset with someone else, went out of their way to injure me in as grievous a way as they could manage. I had done nothing to bring this about, insofar as to offend against them, except for being in their way, in one fashion or another. I had even been of great assistance to them when they were in need and I suspect this only amplified the resentment.

These acts of treachery against me were not unlike attempted murder in terms of their severity. I suppose I could justify all sorts of anger toward these people but I've zero of that and wish them well as far as it goes, should they show up in my mind, which they seldom do. This is where Broad Daylight Awareness really comes into its own, in terms of value. When you see things as they are, they are no longer colored, or otherwise shaped by certain emotional filters. We have only to look at our own failings and times of operative disregard for the sensitivities of others to understand the need to be generous and forgiving. Another reason is that if you persist too long in this sort of thing you will be put into a situation where you act the same way... for the purpose of illustration.

Anyway, higher entities are not uniformly blissed out and unshakably compassionate toward all life all the time. They come in all shapes and sizes. People might think of the Devic Realm as a wondrous location, all harmonious and without peril of any kind. This is very much not so. I've had it convincingly demonstrated on me precisely for my own protection. Angels are not all beautiful and joyous creatures tossing blessings right and left like they were some kind of ambulatory pinata that Pez like dispenses favors every time it bumps into something or someone. They can be terrifying in aspect, intimidating and decidedly unfriendly as well; most especially if they are of the guardian sort, protecting portals and what not. Make yourself one of those friends who knows all about the ins and outs of whatever there is going in and out and leave all potential meetings and exchanges in their hands without argument, ever.

I cannot stress enough the importance of making invisible friends. Even a simple routine of walking each day into woodland or meadow and speaking about such a possibility will most certainly bear fruit; ONCE you've been vetted in terms of sincerity and integrity. In case of these two, use the Master Card Maxim, 'Don't leave home without it'. I'm telling you that you will absolutely get results if you are consistent in practice and understand the value of constant giving way. You are all hosting one presence or another or more, now and again. Certainly they come and go as they wish. Take control of who you grant admittance to. Stand guard at the gateway of the mind. In tonight's radio broadcast I will be reading certain passages from The Way to the Kingdom.

Be well. Be watchful. Be alert! Be passionately alive and in love with the source of it and you will find yourself a channel where a river of it runs through.

End Transmission.......

right on track, dear LV

thank you for your endurance in things spiritual.

by the way - this festival you recommended; can you tell more about it ?

thanks in advance


Visible said...

What festival? You mean the solstice celebration?

I'm many miles removed from Visible but it's come to my attention that his expenses are far outstripping his income of late (not difficult when he HAS no income as such)

Not to put too fine a point on it I think Vis going thru a hard time financially so

Now is a good time to hit the PayPal donate button at top left of his blog sidebars or visit his store site, buy one of his books or music albums,

Thank you

Les, as hard as it is to imagine, I do think at times that God is somewhat smarter than me.
I suppose a being that exists outside time, seeing the whole big simultaneous picture, might indeed know a bit more than we might think.
Humility is requisite, although the lessons necessary to get there are tough ones. I'm not there yet, so I expect more slapdowns.
Subdued passions? Yesterday on NPR
there was a bit on Cole Porters 1920's era song 'Anything Goes'.
The '20's were like today, indulging wants were fine...
But that's like a Twinkie, looks good, tastes pretty good, but you have ask yourself, is it really good? Is it Good for me and others?
Or is it just more selfish materialism, leaving one hungry as ever?
There is a peace in surrender to the ineffable, a letting go as you say, in humility.
You are so spot on.
I almost hate to say it without caveat(is that the word) so as not to spoil you. Perhaps I should bitch and moan. But I reckon your feet are on the ground as firmly as your gaze is toward heaven, and the posters here will keep us all off the high horses we tend to get on.
There is no loneliness among us.
Thank you,

Hi Vis
A part of me wishes fervently that you were going to be in Italy still come September. I am traveling there with my son and my best & oldest friend of 42 years ago...would love to visit you. I'm happier knowing that you are well and ensconced in your preferred place, I dreamt recently that I was in a small, old fashioned classroom being taught by you. Not much more to the dream that I can remember but it was a nice dream nonetheless.
As per 3rd Elf's comment, I had been thinking the same thing about helping with the financial end of things, and I have a note to myself on my calendar to send a bit of money to you the first part of June. Is it more helpful to purchase a book, etc. or to just make a cash donation? I wish my financial ship had already arrived and that I had lots to send you, but if we all do our little bits it will make a positive difference for you.
Wishing Vis and all his readers & commenters a wonderful week,

Wow! 4th paragraph reminds me of something I just posted on my blog after finding out about the Ik tribe.

Imagine Life Like This:

Something to look forward to. . .for some, huh?

More on the Ik:

I'm surprised they don't eat their crotch droppings the day that they're born. It actually would be kinder than living the way they do.

On the other hand, I just read a little more. They sometimes use their crotch droppings for bait, and I suppose that's better because there's more meat on the critter that wants to eat the crotch dropping as opposed to the crotch dropping itself.

Pragmatism at it's finest.

If you want to make a pun here, even if it's dumb and unoriginal, that's perfectly fine but not anonymously because then we can't tell whether it's a jerk issue or whether you're simply retarded. The latter is fine, so long as I know which retard it is.

My Letter of Apology to the Illuminati

For the past 10 years, I have tried my best to oppose and expose the agenda of the global elite, the "1 percent" as Occupy Wall Street calls them, or as "conspiracy theorists" call them the Illuminati.

I did this out of a false humanistic ideal, thinking that human beings are inherently noble and good, and that if given freedom, humans could create a perfect world.

What a fool I was. I realize now, that the elite are doing God's work, and are being compassionate, by CONTROLLING the human race, especially in terms of population control. Because let us simply face the unpleasant truth- we humans really are a cancer on this planet. We reproduce uncontrollably, and suck up all the natural resources, until there is nothing left. That is by definition what cancer is. The human race is a virus, a cancer, on this beautiful planet.

I truly feel regret for opposing the Illuminati's agenda. If only I had been a bit older, a bit wiser. The global elite are doing THE RIGHT THING by using GMOs, vaccines, chemtrails, forced abortions and sterilizations, and other methods in their depopulation agenda. If we don't get the human population to a manageble number within the next few decades, it appears that we are a human race is going to go extinct, as we will have depleted the natural resources of this planet and destroyed the planet environmentally.

To John Rockefeller, to Henry Kissinger, to Bill Gates, and to the other compassionate elite, I want to sincerely and humbly offer my apology to you. You guys were doing the right thing all along. The human race does not deserve unlimited freedom, or actually any real freedom at all, as we have not evolved or perhaps are not even capable of evolving beyond the cancerous species that we truly are.

Let me end this letter of apology with the astounding wisdom that the Illuminati has promoted on their Georgia Guidestones:

1. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature.
2. Guide reproduction wisely — improving fitness and diversity.
3. Unite humanity with a living new language.
4. Rule passion — faith — tradition — and all things with tempered reason.
5. Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts.
6. Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court.
7. Avoid petty laws and useless officials.
8. Balance personal rights with social duties.
9. Prize truth — beauty — love — seeking harmony with the infinite.
10. Be not a cancer on the earth — Leave room for nature — Leave room for nature.

Signed, A truly useless eater,

John Doe

galen said...

Richard, what does Mas and Mas mean? Just wondering.


galen said...

John Doe, great satire. Sadly many a John Doe will resonate with your assertions. To that John Doe I would say. . . 

I was wondering if you will be amongst the first to volunteer to bring our number down to 500,000,000? And what method would you choose for your diminishment? Starvation? Guillotine? Vaccine cocktail? Relocation to Fukushima? 

Oh and your acceptance of our reproduction limitations. . . would that be enhanced by the cessation of mating? Sure, that will be REAL easy to pull off.  

A few other points. . . Kill language = kill culture/heritage, that which evolved naturally over millennia helping us understand where we came from. It's homogenization that kills diversity. But some might prefer the earth with every flower looking like every other, and every tree, as well. 

Rule with tempered reason. Who's reason? Guess we just trust those leaders who've been doin' a bang-up job this past century. Yeah, they are highly reasonable. 

Temper passion?! Goodbye art, literature, music, invention. Hello fluff. 

World Court? Good luck with that one. Excuse me, yes, I live in California, but I have to speak with my representative in BELGIUM!!. What's that you say? The lines are down? I should just stay put and wait 'till I'm contacted? No later than 2020. I should just wait. Okay. 

Social duties? Who's callin' 'em? Henry, I guess, or Georgie S? 

Leave room for nature? I AM NATURE! No one is not.

Soullessness, that's where they'd take us. But the soul won't easily go along, and now I guess the fight is on.

Yours Truly,
And Anything But Useless,
Inherently Good


Eudoxia said...

Excellent post Viz and excellent radio show as well. Another piece of brilliance that came along at exactly the right time for me. I will be reading that book, I have read many others that provide the same teaching but you can never read too many and at the core of all religions they all teach the same. The Bible is a demonstration of how perverted those teachings became. I have been wandering off path for the past few months this has manifested in my animals behaviour of late as odd as that may sound. This post was right on time.

@ Galen - well said in response to Useless Eater I for one am getting fed up with stupid, they are simply oxygen thieves. zx < that was from Lucy the cat who loves walking across keyboards.

@ 3rd Elf - notes, it's a shame I wasn't in much of a position to either purchase the books or donate previously. Aside from continued Visa debit card failures i.e. being declined constantly for bullshit reasons I have finalised my move and now know what I have to work with. I have just switched from a bank to a credit union here in oz just waiting for my cards now so will be looking forward to some fine reading in the orchard or the grove (both locations are also excellent places to meditate) - cards should be here this week.

Visible said...

Harmless pun? Hardly but it certainly exposed the author, which was the intent. As for the rest of it; so far off the mark on every count as to produce no more than mirth. Now that you have unveiled yourself, please find another venue.

Thanks, Eudoxia.

Hello Vis,

Interestingly enough, recently song by Peter Gabriel and Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan resurfaced on my path - Signal to Noise. Now your post revalidates certain contemplations that took place thereafter.

Filling one's mind with thoughts of seeking material rewards and comforts of this life is the sure path to be consumed by Noise.



"Signal To Noise"

you know the way that things go
when what you fight for starts to fall
and in that fuzzy picture
he writing stands out on the wall
so clearly on the wall

send out the signals deep and loud

and in this place, can you reassure me
with a touch, a smile - while the cradle's burning
all the while the world is turning to noise
oh the more that it's surrounding us
the more that it destroys
turn up the signal
wipe out the noise

send out the signals deep and loud

man i'm losing sound and sight
of all those who can tell me wrong from right
when all things beautiful and bright
sink in the night
yet there's still something in my heart
that can find a way
to make a start
to turn up the signal
wipe out the noise

Receive and Transmit.

thanks Vis.

It's good to be reminded of my insignificance. It's funny, I have quite (or very) low self-esteem, yet at the same time some part of me has grandiose thoughts of self-importance. Anyway, I know I'm clueless, yet surrendering is so so hard (Why oh why?!). Perhaps there's something in me that doesn't feel clueless (and that's not a good thing, methinks). All in due time. And practice practice practice. Anyways, just wanted to say thanks :)

All the best, to all of you

And then there’s zen, sitting here with Here
Nothin’s actually over there
‘cept for the subtle hiding of Here

Then is gone and when moved on
zen forward bends in humble bow
a welcoming welcome to here and now
It says, ‘Right now, right now as you read
not later or when you no longer breathe
you are so dear when you are Here’

I forget, I forget almost everyday
waiting takes over and waiting holds sway
postponement wrestles with delay
and I have fully abandoned Here

Ah, two hands clap behind my head
a jolt to me soul, my eyes attend
I look around again and again
Now offers up a cup of zen
and I am no more waiting
