Dog Poet Transmitting.......
'Money can buy you a fine dog, but only love can make him wag his tail.'
I have been thinking and thinking of late. Of course; that's pretty much what I do anyway but maybe 'deeper' is a better expression. It's been forced upon me due to major life changes and due to new forms of pressure that require new methods of response. Like many of you, I have been in pursuit of the truth most of my life. I was in pursuit of the truth even before I knew that I was. This was, no doubt for two reasons, one was not understanding why the things that were happening to me were happening and the other was a matter of reincarnation, which I am aware of but the details escape me. The details escaping me is part of the movie. You know what you are supposed to know and you don't know what you are not supposed to know. This does not mean you cease to strive to know. The nature of existence is the spirit in search of experience and the result of experience is knowledge and the fruit of knowledge, properly valuated, according to the algorithm of the ineffable, which illuminates everything as it really is, is divine luminous wisdom. There is a reason that everything comes in stages with very, very few exceptions, which aren't really exceptions because there is a Karmic backdrop to everything. Just because something looks a certain way on the surface and makes no sense does not mean it makes no sense. It makes plenty of sense as long as you aren't making your assessments based on surface information.
This is the general state of of contemporary life. People draw their conclusions according to sensory information, based on ingrained habit that manifests as a personal perspective. So long as we are caught up in our self affirmed validity of a personal perspective, we are in conflict with the world around us; to some degree. Worse... you will be in conflict with yourself; of course, you wouldn't be in conflict with the world around you unless you were in conflict with yourself. If you know this, good, you can do something about it. If you don't know this, you can look for subconscious usurpation, manifesting through the weakest link in the chain.
It is only when we manage to subdue, or put aside our personal perspective that we come into harmony with the world around us, while at the same time, incrementally becoming more and more free of it with every passing breath. I don't care how you arrive at this understanding, or what arguments anyone might have to the contrary. Until you do arrive at this awareness, the essence of every world teacher who has come and gone here but has neither come nor gone, will not be accessible to you. Being able to operate from beyond a captive personal perspective is to come into possession of pure and unsullied objective awareness; what I call Broad Daylight Awareness.
There is a reason I got into all of this convoluted and complex exposition bringing us to this point. It is because, as important as I believe all of what just got said to be, none of it holds a candle to the single most important consideration there is or ever shall be. I will preface this with the greatest commandment; “Thou shalt love the lord thy god with all thy heart and all thy mind.” I'll add to that the new commandment, given by the Christ to his disciples; “Love one another as I have loved you.”
You can learn all of the things stated in the early points of this posting and all of the much deeper complexities available in all the systems of thought across time ...but they will prove to be of little value whatsoever compared to the power of Love. Here is something to remember. You can acquire all of the wisdom of the ages and achieve enlightenment but you will have to come back. However, if you reach the singularity of eternal love (my phraseology) ALL of these other things come with the package and you won't have to come back, unless you get that Bodhisattva virus as many do, for whatever their reasons may be, probably an excess of Love (grin).
When you are looking down upon this plane from the heavenly spheres, it does not look the same as when you are looking at it from down here. As a result, there are those in the heavenly spheres, overwhelmed by compassion, who leap into the birth channels out of a desire to help the human race. Some of those who do this often wind up cursing themselves for what they consider to be their stupidity later (grin). However, the way the ineffable works is that everyone who works for the ineffable works and everything works out so... experiencing doubt about ones mission is irrelevant to the complete success of it.
Love will get you through times of lacking intelligence much better than lacking intelligence will get you through times of lacking Love. I've adapted that phrase from a Furry Freak Brothers comic (grin). My point is that the most intelligent thing anyone in pursuit of higher awareness can engage in is the pursuit of Love; not generic, mundane and ordinary terrestrial Love but a higher love (cue Stevie Winwood). Intelligence is as likely to get you into trouble as it is to get you out of it. A lot of people rely on it to take them through the tangled-woods of existence but it is just as likely to get one lost in them as to get them out. Look around you. Read the history books. The world is full of people who are too smart for their own good.
Love can make anything possible. As trite as that may sound, it is true. Love is the power that manifests the living light of the divine. Love is so powerful that the divine is a slave to it. That's right. Look it up. It's been said many times in many faiths.
If I did not think it would look ridiculous, I would close out the posting right now by just repeating the word Love over and over and over again. It's not just a word though. The word exists to define a rough approximation of something with a variety of temporal applications that are shadows on the wall by comparison with the sun that casts them. It is Love modulating from one particularization of itself into all the specializations you see. It is Love that sends the planets in their courses. It is Love that causes the ocean to crash upon the shore. It is Love that brings us together only to separate us and it is Love that brings us together forever and ever when the time comes for it. It is Love that sets the limitations that manifest in the spheres of time and gravity, in order that these constrictions can be broken by... the power of Love.
Everything you see around you and everything you cannot see around you but which is around you and within you, is some permutation of Love. The objective is to take all of those multiplicities and reduce or convert them into the ineffable singularity of that high and keening state of transcendent love that is the same as that in which the saints immerse themselves. It is the unmistakable presence of god. IT is without peer. It is without equal. It can be compared to nothing and nothing can be compared to it. It is remarkable beyond the capacity of any medium to define or express it. This is why it exists in silence and whenever it moves into expression, as a vibratory statement, upon the sounding board of the ether, it reduces and fragments itself for the purpose of being experienced. You might almost think of it as some kind of a sacrifice. One of the things seldom understood, is the degree of sacrifice that the ineffable engages in for the sake of creation. Whoops! A whole lot of Bodhisattvas just jumped into the birth canal as soon as I said that. I'd better watch myself (grin).
I want to share with you that most important understanding that exists for me and which I have received as truth from my betters; there is nothing like Love. There never has been and there never will be. You can read all the books you want to and you can pose the most sophisticated arguments based on all your acquired acumen but Love will walk out the door, while you are so involved in it. Why waste your time on building dream castles of temporary substance out of egoic ectoplasm? Go to the 'heart' of the matter. This is the answer in any time but it is most assuredly the answer in Kali Yuga and a defense against any and all of the stratagems brought against you by The Enemy. No human mind is that good; lie to yourself in whatever manner you choose to, it matters not.
May you, each and every one of you, achieve this glorious end that never ends. May you sun bathe on the rocks of time and skinny dip in the pools of infinity forever and ever amen.
