The King and Queen of the Visible World.

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

Cry havoc and let slip the dogs of tofu; thus does Cochise make cowboys of us all.

Once we were small and then we were not and then we were not at all; or so it seems, cause people come and go. They come and go just like the Karma Chameleon but... they don't really come and they don't really go. They simply manifest and unmanifest in this particular bandwidth for specific periods of time. We are all looking at the same thing, sooner or later. Most of us spend our time here to the degree that we believe we are here, to the exclusion of an awareness of everywhere else other than here. However, it is only this composition of aggregate dust that occupies this zone. Our emotions are in another. Our minds in yet another. Our soul and spirit also have their place of residence. We think it is all happening here but that would be a rare occurrence pulled off only by masters of the trade.

So... we're here, more or less but we are not integrated. Our minds fly off in all directions. Our emotions do too. I'm guessing our souls and spirits are fixed but- most of the time- out of reach. These eternal features of our immortal but inactive nature never seem so far away as they do in times of material darkness. They are right there though. Your consciousness needs to be vibrating at a particular frequency in order to make communion. Imagine that. Imagine that there is someone or something you love more than anything else and more than everything else put together. Imagine that you don't know what this is and all you have is a vague and undefined yearning. You've tried to quench this thirst with all kinds of things but nothing works for long. Not even the deepest sleep or the most powerful dream can conceal this yearning. You might interpret it as something else but its there. It is the most basic impetus, though our 'blind and deaf to reason' scientific community would define our basic impetus(es) as other drives because they don't recognize anything outside of the bandwidth they are captured in. There are, of course, some exceptions to this but they are in the minority.

What happened yesterday? What is happening now? What will happen tomorrow? It's too bad that our minds demarcate these constructs into separate time zones. It's part of what traps us. People talk about freedom a lot and they think it will come to them with the acquisition of wealth or some other material condiment but it doesn't. The result is quite the reverse. Here on this plane most everything is reversed; just like those old cameras. I understand one of the reasons that we have difficulty learning to walk is that we see everything upside down, prior to our accomplishing this remarkable feat. There's a message in there somewhere. There is a message in everything but it appears to be written in a foreign language.

I've seen that language gleaming out of the fabric of everything. It is a vibrating flame alphabet and as I remember, the characters were red and sometimes electric green. They were arranged differently and composed of different characters, depending on what I was looking at. Once I tried to make sense of all of this. I probed all the disciplines; occult, arcane, hermetic, alchemical, religious, metaphysical, mystical. Some of these are interdependent and some things I left out. I didn't learn much; not entirely true because I learned a great many things, I just couldn't use them. Either I didn't know enough or I wasn't allowed to. I am leaning toward the latter.

This is where real difficulty enters in. We are all in different phases and some things make sense and some do not and later on down the road, the things that made sense, now do not make sense and the things that did not make sense, now make sense. This explains why people can love you at one point and hate you at another; hate you at one point and then love you.

I stormed the gates of Heaven. I'm paying for that. I walked in alien landscapes where one should not wander unattended and I am paying for that too. I probably was attended. I believe I always have been. It is hard to accept this sometimes because memory tells us we have been places and done things that are not classically permitted and likely an offense against the will of God. One has to put aside their uninformed ideas of good and evil if one wants to understand better. Much of what we know as good and evil are the creations of the overlords and are employed for crowd control.

I've said what I had to say about these things for the moment. I want to segue to something that comes up all the time here. We hear about it in the comments and I hear about it in emails. It doesn't matter how many times it gets said or explained; people do not want to accept what is inevitable and what is inarguable. Sure, you can argue but that is just the result of temporary blindness coupled with the sort of ignorance that attends ones unwillingness to look life in the eye and see it for what it is. If you face life with open eyes you will not wander blind.

Carve these words by Lao Tzu upon your consciousness. Carve them deep. Draw blood. Make remembering what you are about to read, more important than eating and sleeping;

“Be utterly humble
And you shall hold to the foundation of peace.
Be at one with all these living things which, having arisen and flourished,
Return to the quiet whence they came,
Like a healthy growth of vegetation
Falling back upon the root.
Acceptance of this return to the root has been called 'quietism,'
Acceptance of quietism has been condemned as 'fatalism.'
But fatalism is acceptance of destiny
And to accept destiny is to face life with open eyes,
Whereas not to accept destiny is to face death blindfold.
He who is open-eyed is open-minded-
He who is open-minded is open-hearted,
He who is open-hearted is kingly,
He who is kingly is godly,
He who is godly is useful,
He who is useful is infinite,
He who is infinite is immune,
He who is immune is immortal.”

How many times do people come around here seething with outrage about what goes on in this world and also railing at God for letting it happen? There is only one time when anger has any value; when it is useful. This applies to every emotion of that kind, as far as I am concerned.

You must accept that Karma rules here. You must acknowledge that Karma is precise and perfect. You may not understand why things are as they are. It may sicken and outrage you but how useful and effective is that? You can rage and whine in your impotence for so long as that seems like some kind of effective tactic; which it is not (cue the blindness commentary). Karma is a fact. It is a blood and tears fact. You can stress out and commit suicide over it (which is what stress results in) but you cannot change it. It is what it is. You may not like it but so what; that is what Karma says, “so what?”

The beginning of getting what it's all about is in acquiring the understanding that you can affect some things and have no impact whatsoever on others. Everything you see is Karma. Everything you hear about is Karma. It is ALL Karma and that is why the Buddhas have something called 'unbearable compassion'. Serve as you go and do your best. It is what it is. It is what it is. People drive themselves crazy arguing about it and insisting it be otherwise or that there is some kind of cure or solution. There is and there is not. Karma is King here and Kali is queen of everything that moves and whatever happens to it.

There are things one can do. There are potential alterations that can be made to Karma and acts of sacrifice and good works can militate against Karma but it is also Karma that keeps people from this awareness. I don't like it any better than you do but I accept it. I get up every day and I go about my business as best as I know how. One day I will be much better at it. Some day I will see more clearly. Is this true of you as well? Time will tell and we shall see.

Well said good Sir. Time will show your words to be correct.

Peace and love.

What a pain in the butt to know too much, yet too little, huh? Double edged sword. Painful, but you wouldn't trade any of it in for anything.

Deep down, we think God's out to get us. We fear his wrath and punishment. We'd rather pre-emptively punish ourselves first than surrender to the living Presence.

As you forgive, you are forgiven.

As you accept the Life that gifts you with your own undying existence, you accept yourself.

As you allow the Infinite to use you and guide you, the burden of having to control life, to know what to do, is lifted.

Listen now. Only detach your mind from the clamoring voices that tell you there's something other than the Eternal here, and the Ineffable will reach into your dream and make itself known.

William is at a loss for words before the splendor and grace of the Divine. He knows it is ever ready to fill his being with a peace that this world cannot touch. What greater treasure can there be?

Peace to all!

Your statement, "The beginning of getting what it's all about is in acquiring the understanding that you can affect some things and have no impact whatsoever on others", although possibly true, is not necessarily useful, because in the divining between doing or not doing, optimism or pessimism, undertaking or not undertaking, lie often the success or failure of good works.

Our abilities are not known beforehand and although self-limitation may backstop self-preservation, it also precludes self-realization. God gives whatever gifts he gives. It is a sin, arguably mortal, to not use these in service and homage to Him, because a determination is made to not attempt some good thing because, possibly in error, one has decided that one's actions will have no impact whatsoever on this or that thing.

Happiness fails and neurosis arrives when we avoid non-being by avoiding being (per Paul _?). A course of action taken with goodwill and good faith is required in order to animate and arouse and engage to one's side providence and god, and often this requires the setting aside of pursuing the need to know that which, in advance, we only think we cannot effect or affect, because to do so and to be wrong, precludes our good works.

Always go with good intent and armed with these gifts and, come what may, face the possibility of failure, because getting up and doing what needs doing, is the gauge and necessary element of success.

The Serenity Prayer,

God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change,
The courage to change the things I can,
and the wisdom to know the difference.,

seems to have been ignored by the evildoers, and has been the reason for the good not attempted or achieved.

God bless the good and rebuke the evil. For we cannot know with certainty which are the things we can affect and those which we cannot.

Vis, a very thoughtful column. Thanks!

Vis: "Your consciousness needs to be vibrating at a particular frequency in order to make communion."

Vis, this sentence caused me to sit right up. I believe this was the original meaning of 'communion', before religion got ahold of it. The actual 'meeting' (and hopefully 'merging') of lower consciousness with higher consciousness!

In a sense, that is how I experience communing with my Higher Self. First, there is likely a 'distance' between he/she/it and I (Ray). Then, I get still and 'reach up'. When there is no interference, Higher Self notes this and 'reaches down'. (Or, in times of need, Higher Self reaches down, anyway.)

There is a wonderful 'communion' sense when that occurs. It feels like a 'completion'. And, after that, you know what it is like to be without it. (Both cool and a bummer.) Your world is no longer the same, and your 'direction' changes accordingly.

And even better, when you get used to it, there are things you can do 'together' that you could not do apart... (grin)

Best Wishes,
Ray B.

Vis, what choice can we imagine but that we have to as you state, , " accept that Karma rules here. You must acknowledge that Karma is precise and perfect. You may not understand why things are as they are. It may sicken and outrage you but how useful and effective is that? You can rage and whine in your impotence for so long as that seems like some kind of effective tactic; which it is not (cue the blindness commentary). Karma is a fact. It is a blood and tears fact." --as difficult as it is to arise from a nights sleep with renewed resolve and good intentions, the struggle is seemly constant.

The Buddha instructed that one "must recognize and accept the fact that this triple world is manifested and imagined as real only under the influence of habit-energy that has been accumulated since the beginning-less past by reason of memory, false-imagination, false-reasoning, and attachments to the multiplicities of objects and reactions in close relationship and in conformity to ideas of body-property-and-abode."
The Lankavatara Sutra

Souls of poets dead and gone, What Elysium have ye known, Happy field or mossy cavern, Choicer than the Mermaid Tavern Have ye tippled drink more fine Than mine host's Canary wine

Thank you, Visible :)

I must say, I have a feeling that everything will turn out nicely. I think The Lord is a trickster.

Be well, All.

And so it is that we, as men, do not exist until we do; and then it is that we play with our world of existent things, and order and disorder them, and so it shall be that Non-existence shall take us back from Existence, and that nameless Spirituality shall return to Void, like a tired child home from a very wild circus.

"and so it shall be that Non-existence shall take us back from Existence, and that nameless Spirituality shall return to Void, like a tired child home from a very wild circus."

Hahahaha! what a bunch of inane gobbledygook!

Mr. Hill sounds very much like a tired confused child himself.

If one is going to 'return to the void' how in heaven's name does this compare to a 'tired child' returning home from a very wild circus!?'

A child returning home implies PEOPLE, not some lifeless inert void devoid of love and (it takes two to tango) reciprocation. Home implies family, friends, pets, events, etc., etc.

Mr. Hill, the standard raindrop falling into the ocean would have sufficed. No need to extent too far into the ocean depths of inanity, but then the ocean also implies life, life, and more life. Does it not? Quite a conundrum, innit?
No problem though, we'll just make it up as we go. Throw reason, logic, home, family, etc., etc. into the void where they (and everything) belongs. Happily nonexistent ... well, can't be happily either.. Damn! what has God wrought! Oh, whoops ... can't have that either..

I see Mr. Hill trying to reach beyond his understanding only to assume a child's understanding. (very superstitious)

How might 'Non-existence' (with a capitol N, no less!) achieve anything, anyhow? It's nonexistent!! Wow! Even an immature superstitious child might have a problem with that..

Unless of course nothing from nothing leaves something, which, once again, the void impaired Mr. Hill fails to understand 'just ain't so,' Well, outside of fairy tales and fairy tale imaginations. So once again Mr. Hill falls like a child and scrapes his quasi metaphorical knee.

Hey Mr. hill, here's someone with a little advise. A lesson which might help you. Try to listen as best you can with those earless ears..
Very Superstitious

P.S. Please everyone, take this with a (very real) and salty grain of salt. Save the hand wringing and teeth gnashing comeuppances. Shooting the messenger, especially when he delivers a postcard originating from the realm of reality (aka) broad daylight, is, well.. childish.

Unless of course you must!
But if you do insist on a moral outrage tit for tat, I'll be forced to click my heels and with the awesome all encompassing reality overriding power of , yep, you guessed it, IMAGINATION, I'll turn you all into frogs!

Why aren't you getting it Les? Take the I Ching, get a 6 or 7 (13) or a 8 or 9 (17).

A quarter is 25 cents. The numeric value of Horus' pupil in his eye is one quarter.
