Bypassing the Planet of the Curmudgeons.

Dog Poet transmitting.......

May it always be Christmas Day in your heart. Ruf!

I love Christmas. I love Easter. I love Thanksgiving. I haven’t got much use for New Years Eve or The 4th of July. These latter are amateur hour on the highways. I consider myself a professional in that regard (grin). I have driven many times, blitzkreiged and also stopped by the PO-lice both on the highway and at temporary traffic stops for checking this very thing AND- never once have been cited for being impaired. This is because I take driving under such conditions very seriously. When I know that my senses are altered, I operate with that understanding and my attention is intensely and narrowly focused on the task at hand.

In no way am I seeking to brag about this and condone it and I recognize that it opens a window for self righteous anal retentives to come at me about it. That’s all past business anyway. However... there is always a lot we can do in any situation or circumstance besides the automatic that people put into play because they are lazy or lack the imagination. End digression.

The reason I like certain holidays, is due to the spirit filled state I enter on a regular basis. Christmas Spirit and the correlative spirit of the others are very real conditions and available to anyone who seeks them out or puts themselves ‘in the way’ of this state. What will and does cancel out this state is Materialism and cynicism; despite the seeming joy of the act of giving; this token and routine ritual of exchanging objects instead of this state of being, which is a wonderful thing to be sharing and far superior to objects. Of course, there are those who give gifts from Malkuth and gifts from Tiphereth at the same time. “God Bless us every one!” as a character in a book once said.

Last night I was told to record a Christmas Album with music as similar as possible to the traditional carols. This isn’t my normal style; not that I have one and not that I’m normal. There is a significant downside to my doing this and that is that it comes up against the contemporary cynicism of many readers who believe in nothing traditional and hedge their bets about God by shaping him according to the parameters of what they feel comfortable acting out as.

I’m not like a lot of the people who come around here. I’m not an adult. I never became an adult. That was denied me and I am grateful. I had one of the worst childhoods I know about though... I know there are worse childhoods; much worse. Mine was amplified exponentially due to my having been overly sensitive. If I had had a little more insulation and a little more of a hard side, I would have been much better off but... I was extremely sensitive and so it injured me in a way I never recovered from. I suspect it did make me into the person I am today, doing what I do, day after day and not minding, not even thinking about it. I often feel like a pack animal or a horse. I am carrying something that is greater than myself like a dog and its owner. Being beaten into submission might have helped make this possible.

Anyway... cynicism... I am a selective cynic. I do not expect Henry Kissinger or David Rockefeller to change. I expect them to walk right through the gates of Hell when the time comes; which is real soon. At the same time, I am not cynical about these holidays, even though holidays have not been all that kind to me; I think. This Christmas I will be in transit.

At some point, usually in late November, the spirit descends on me and I get kind of divinely intoxicated. It’s in the air and you CAN plug into it. If you are cynical it will NOT process. Cynicism is a defense mechanism against feeling and vulnerability. People don’t want to be hurt anymore so they devote their time to hurting themselves and others and they get guidance in this regard too.

Sure... I could focus on the extreme commercialism of the season as well as the hokey aspects, sometimes cloying and all the gratuitous media portrayals. But... I don’t. I am only interested in the spirit. I note when I say Merry Christmas to people they frown. Many people have bad associations with Christmas. That’s their problem. It isn’t mine. I celebrate the birth of the light and CONFIDENTLY expect it to manifest in me.

I do lots of strange things here as a water tester or to see if people pick up on them. This may be a part of why some readers take EVERYTHING I say seriously. I referenced that in The Petri Dish comments, should there be any interest. For instance, in this very comment I intentionally did some judging, to see if anyone would call me on it. These things are only for my own edification or amusement. Still... they just go by.

Cynicism is an ugly thing; can be. It’s one of those things that calcifies. It hardens. It leads to the Planet of Curmudgeons. Remember... when you pass on, you have to spend that time with people and entities very much like you. Birds of a feather get sent to the same place. What this means is you have to strive toward adjustments in yourself. Heaven begins where your feet touch the ground and it’s been said that you don’t go anywhere that you aren’t already present in. Your mindset and emotions are like an airline ticket. You get to the next realm and that world arranges itself around you to accommodate your view. This can be very good news or very bad news. I tend to recommend people to The Tibetan Book of the Dead insofar as a pictorial of what you will experience in similar fashion. Ergo... I pursue Christmas spirit and I could care less for the cynics who did become adults but... not in a good way.

For many people, the dark side and its agents have been successful, inasmuch as it has served to put them into a negative mindset and what this accomplishes is something like throwing the baby out with the bathwater. Sure there are all kinds of sham and pretense. Sure, the trivia side, the superficial side of the holiday is off putting. You react to that and that attitude extends to areas where no aware person would want to be chuted to. You can deny the manifest side of the time but... as all too often happens, you discard the spirit as well. Jesus Christ should not be judged according to Christianity. Christianity is a fascist enterprise but... one can have a personal relationship with the Christ Consciousness. This can descend upon you and it is not unlike Christmas Spirit. So... I wrote three Christmas carols last night after being instructed to. It will be an interesting project and I will include the lyrics at the end of the posting. In this particular case... the music is going to be a much larger factor in the potential for appreciation because it will dovetail right into the familiar.

I refuse to become cynical, except selectively. I don’t mind looking like a Polyanna fool, someone overly influenced by naiveté, a callow sort. Nothing could be further from the truth because my posture is calculated and intentional. I’m not spending my time wishing and hoping that I have done enough or that I have sought the almighty with all my heart and soul and loved the almighty above all else. I simply do it to the best of my ability to and chastise myself whenever I find something pedestrian occupying my mind. It will pay off in the end. Sometimes the struggle goes on for your whole life. You cannot judge outcome according to that. Well... you can... if you’re a cynic but even cynics get wary when it has to do with their own future... unless they have become so seduced by that attitude that it’s an unconscious operating part of them.

The only embarrassment I am concerned about is being embarrassed before the throne. Thankfully, forgiveness is a constant reality for the sincere. We should always keep in mind that it is quite possible that a lot of what we did or what happened to us was not brought about by Karmic reflex but was intentionally created by agents of the almighty for the purpose of demonstration which... in some cases has a lot to do with that particular outcome; a teaching moment if you wish. A teaching life is something all of us engage in. We are taught NOT TO go that way and certainly to go in some variant of THAT other WAY.

Well... we all have our options all along. We have attitudes and lifestyles to choose from in bewildering profusion. We can make ourselves to a degree, while also being shaped by one of two enduring forces. To each their own for that is what they will own. We are in this moment. It is all we will ever have in actuality and all through our lives there are doors and apertures we can go through or ignore. It’s how we feel in our end game that is of singular importance all round. Merry Christmas!!!


End Transmission.......


Ring out the old world and ring in the new
Jesus Christ the son of god has a message for you
It came upon a perfect night his star appeared inside the sky
His light was born to shine within
for those that he made free of sin
Kingdom come is now in reach
of every heart that comes in peace.

Come ye all and sing his greetings
Come ye all and sing his songs
gladly and with open heart
on this day when he is born

And let it be on every day
his love shall swell your heart
let him come alive in you
and let your new life start.

He came out of the darkness
from the womb of Lady Nature
He precipitated into life
to become our savior

He said he was the way
the life and the truth
from the kingdom of forever
where one gains eternal youth

Christmas is the season that we celebrate his birth
How the light was born out of the darkness of the Earth
How the light of god came to shine as if the sun
were brighter by ten thousand times and there for everyone

Joy to the seeking heart
joy to the prisoned mind
This is what he told us to
Seek and ye shall find.

Joy to the suffering
in every place of want and need
Joy to the friends of god
and death to fear and greed

Our liberator now has come
and paid the price for everyone
How truly great and measureless
this love that never dies

Seasons greetings to you all
here on Christmas Day
celebrate the birth of light
and let it have its way.

Christmas is the season that we celebrate his birth
How the light was born out of the darkness of the Earth
How the light of god came to shine as if the sun
suddenly appeared within the heart of god's own son

Ring out the old world and ring in the new
Jesus Christ the son of god has a message for you
It came upon a perfect night his star appeared inside the sky
The light was born to shine within
for those that he made free of sin
Kingdom come is now in reach
of every heart that comes in peace.

Come ye all and sing his greetings
Come ye all and sing his songs
gladly and with open heart
on this day when he is born

And let it be on every day
his love shall swell your heart
let him come alive in you
and let your true life start.







The son of man
is coming back on that you may depend
to be reborn in every waiting heart

He is not coming down from the sky
but he is coming down from on high within
Into every waiting heart

In Bethlehem it came to pass or so the scriptures say
That Jesus Christ the son of God was born on Christmas Day
Born in humble circumstance
to illustrate the true romance
Of spirit with the human soul
the greatest story never told
The priesthood needs must have a lie
To build their coffers up so high
the ignorant do not ask why
but the truth will live forever
The truth will never die

Now 2000 years have gone or so the records say
but the records they are often false and continue to this day
The businessmen have bought his church and twisted his fine words
So it is that Jesus wept and his kingdom not occurred.

In Jerusalem it came to pass that Jesus rode in on an ass
a symbol of the ignorance that prospers in this world
along with death and darkness which the master brought to heel
He taught us what is true of love. He taught us how to feel

He taught us that the greatest love will seek the highest good
that after love for god the greatest love is brotherhood
He showed us how we all could be
He came to Earth to set us free
Earth is in torment to this day
That torment soon will pass away.
If you, my friend, are true of heart
The Christ within will not depart.

All of this has been foretold
In stories from the days of old
Still fear and lies they rule the day.
Yet all of these will pass away
in this apocalypse
Believe it or believe it not
what is is what will be

Jesus Christ was born on Christmas Day
To tell the truth. He said it all, there's nothing more to say.
and that day can be any day that Christ appears in you
Pursue this course above all else
and love the one and true

Eternal life was promised by the one who cannot lie
Now death it has no meaning and you have no death to die
The glory and the power before the kingdom throne
Is singular and tailor made for everyone alone

Feast upon this day
Feast within your heart
Make the master one with you
and you will never part

Jesus Christ the son of man was born on Christmas Day
Jesus Christ the son of God was born on Christmas Day
He came to Earth to speak the truth
there's nothing more to say
There's nothing more to say.






Seasons greetings one and all
come into our home
the hearth is warm and comforting
There's food and cheer for everyone
and let the spirit fill your heart
glad tidings are the living truth
of what the season brings
and those who love the lord our god
hear how their soft hearts sing

We dance and sing the merry way
of Christ’s love in our hearts today
our cup is filled to overflow
and still there's more, how? we don't know.

The blessings of the son of god
are singular and truly fine
the higher love is in our hearts
the shining light is in our minds.

How did we come to now possess
the full extent of measureless
capacity of love and grace
that travels with us every place

The transcendental innocence
of that which is without pretense
that is the power and the glory
birthed in true humility

Greater the undying love
that dies for those they truly love
and cannot die and cannot die
this grace comes from above

seasons greetings one and all
come into our home
the hearth is warm and comforting
There's food and cheer for everyone
and let the spirit fill your heart
glad tidings are the living truth
of what the season brings
and those who love the lord our god
hear how their soft heart sings

Come ye on this special day
when grace has made a perfect way
for you to now experience divine
the source of prescience

And all the angels sing his praise
across the endless span of days
He rules forever infinite
and we are all a part of it
and we are all a part of it

How deeply dark the ignorance
that cannot see, it makes no sense
how free and clear the beautiful
that shines out of the heart of you

We come to what we emulate
There is a love that is so great
mind cannot know, tongue cannot tell
Make it yours and use it well

seasons greetings one and all
come into our home
the hearth is warm and comforting
There's food and cheer for everyone
and let the spirit fill your heart
glad tidings are the living truth
of what the season brings
and those who love the lord our god
hear how their soft heart sings.
