The Voices from the Rocks at the Island of the Sirens of Ulysses.

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

Just because you can't see it doesn't mean it isn't there and just because you can see it doesn't mean it is.

Welcome to Visible Origami. This seems almost redundant to me because so much of what needs be said has already been covered in this week's radio broadcast, which will be available shortly ...but we must needs continue in any case and find some new way to say what has been said already, more times than we can remember the various occasions of.

As mentioned in the aforementioned broadcast, Love is the key to all of our concerns. It is the magic carpet that takes you where it is you need to go. If it is not Real Love then that carpet can take you to places that are unreal, for the purpose of demonstration, experience and observation. Let us say that the carpet exists on, can exist on, many planes at the same time and it capable of inter-dimensional travel, just like the saucer pod. The carpet moves on coordinates that are written out in conjunction with the intentions of the heart. It moves on the reins of the mind. When the heart has swallowed the mind then the mind becomes luminescent and generates its own light and the coordinates are automatically charted for that mysterious island across the turbulent oceans of birth and death. The reason the moon works on the waters and rules the tides, is directly connected to the fact that it is where you go to get a new operating form, every time you are compelled to return here. The fates sew it together out of the compositional elements in the bank of Karma. We all have an account there. We've all got a checking account and a savings account and investments that have been made over the course of time. Some of these might be good investments and some bad and they both accrue interest for interest and industry given.

Yes... the moon builds new bodies for the ghosts in your head. These insubstantial diagrams of thought vibrate in the ethers and precipitate down into the manifest and there you are... living it, until the point is made. A point can be made over and over but without any recognition of the meaning there is no understanding and without understanding there is no closure to the patterns that compel repetition of the cycle that returns you again and again to the same experiences. Variations in experience are generated by variations in the objective focused upon. It is the nature of the mortal mind to redirect the attention to new items of interest, in hopes that the result will be different and this is proof positive of the insanity of the process. You can liken it to beating your head against a wall, or what happens to a windup toy soldier when it hits a wall and falls over, thence turning in circles until the windup has run out. Sometimes the legs just kick against the wall, due to proximity ...and that goes on until the windup stops.

There are certain relative truths here, like the meaning given to anything is the meaning it has for you. Some things have meaning and some do not. Some things drive and some repel, through the mysterious workings of the electronic and magnetic push and pull; that strange and ongoing dynamic of the universe we inhabit. Sometimes meaning is injected into you and sometimes meaning is constructed out of the experiences of contact, under fortunate or unfortunate circumstances. You become the composition and expression of these meanings that act upon or through you. Sometimes, whether something appears to be right or wrong will have an effect on your propensity for engagement and sometimes right and wrong don't apply because the desire for particular results trumps the force of any moral code that might be present.

We are all inmates in a global, open air mental institution and prison ...and we all act and react here, according to our dispositions and desires. Most people are unaware that this is literally true. This is where the phrase, “to walk in all things contrary to the world” comes from. It refers to a comprehension of this global condition of large numbers of people, driven by a multiplicity of fluctuating desires, or reacting to conditions and controls, engineered by those with the power to route and ritualize the behavior of the populations. If these rulers are for the most part unseen and the people are allowed to go about their lives in a more or less natural order, all can be well. If the rulers are known and prominent, it goes less well for the public. If the rulers are hated and even ridiculed, then things are bad and will get more so until change comes about. It can be said, with a degree of certainty, that we are in the latter stage at the moment and so we wait upon the inevitability of change. Most do not, however, but rather flail about in restless dreams of confusion and disordered sleep.

When the rulers are corrupt then crime becomes a way of life in the culture, to a greater or lesser degree. If survival has any importance then this is an inescapable condition. Then lawyers become an ever greater and greater force in human affairs, as the laws become ever more numerous, ever more complicated ...and ever more ridiculous. This generates a great deal of income for those who prey upon the public.

In these times, those who speak the truth about the state of the world and the events that occur in the world are made to appear despicable, deluded and insane by the rulers, through the agency of pervasive media. They are labeled with various, unpleasant sobriquets, like 'truthers', 'nutjobs', 'wackos' and of course, 'terrorists'. This is not to say that there are not real terrorists but these are all either created by the rulers or caused by the rulers. Never has this been more obvious that the now proven and known fact of western government support and international banker financing of the terrorists in Syria. This is only the most recent example of the same thing that was manifested in Afghanistan; Iraq, Libya, Yemen, Palestine and anywhere there are resources and land to be stolen for profit or geopolitical advantage by the international predators who control the governments that set the national and foreign policies of the various oppressor countries.

One is a programmed fool if they believe that Israel was created to provide a homeland for a victimized people, or as they like to say, “a land without people for a people without land”. The real purpose was to create a sovereign nation, where a criminal syndicate could act with impunity, because the laws of that land make all of their criminal activities legal. As history clearly shows, they have been the biggest victimizers of others for a good long while now. They even invented a historical hoax that proclaims millions of them were killed at certain locations, when official records say otherwise and their own census, across that period of time, says otherwise. They orchestrated an attack against their alleged closest and most powerful ally, called 9/11 in order to create a climate of fear that led to all of the repressive conditions now present in the country of their closest ally, so that wars might be fomented against all of the nations already listed. This is not only proven fact. It is so obvious that only an ignorant fool would think otherwise. Of course, FEAR comes into the picture as well. Much of the populations are in a state of fear for themselves and their families, as they try to negotiate conditions of ever greater want and need and greater confusion and uncertainty that are all generated by these same predators. Their power to do this comes from two areas. One of them is dispensations of magical force, conferred on them by the infernal kingdom and accomplished by mass blood sacrifices and widespread suffering caused in the world at large, which pleases the infernal kingdom ...and the other is the control of world banks, which print and regulate the currency. We are talking about two kinds of currency here. One is generated out of blood and torment and one is generated out of thin air.

It needs be said that the infernal kingdom is only able to achieve these things through their agents on Earth because they are ALLOWED to do this, by the cosmic ruler of all things, according to the laws of karma and this is done for the purpose of demonstration in the ongoing drama of the grand movie of life. One might object to or disagree with this statement ...but it is nonetheless true.

Your personal concern should be less about what you can do to change any of this in the wider sense and more about what you can do to change it in the personal sense. You are a part of this all to the degree that you are influenced by it ...and granted or denied the things you seek, according to your complicity or opposition to any of it. Love casts out fear. They cannot occupy the same space at the same time. Ergo, the force of your Love must be greater than the force of your fear and if this is so, you become an agent of change simply by being. You cannot insist on change. You cannot demand that one thing become another because there is no certainty of how it might turn out. Of course it will change, or your relationship to it will change, or its relationship to you will change but... it could well not change the way you wanted it to. We have seen the tragic result of this many times in the stories left to us in the histories that precede the moment we are in. Change yourself and the world changes and remember, this may not happen immediately and it might actually get worse in the process, for a time, because things are never so hard as when you are trying to change. Think of the tensions that occur when you are trying to kick some habit. Even long after you may have accomplished it, the memory of former pleasures will come upon you out of the blue, like some recollection of an old lover. You can escape the company of old lovers, but have you escaped the patterns of being that brought about these contacts in the first place? The past calls out to us in a seductive voice and it is the voice of the grave. The future cries out and it is the voice of whimsy and want that is always there, like the voices from the rocks at the islands of the Sirens of Ulysses. Once the eternal present is established there is no past or future anymore. This is the island of immortal divinity. This is that place where your parts come together as one.

Possibly you are familiar with that story by Plato about our separated selves and the quest it implies. This tale has been told by others in different ways, through fable and allegory, even in unusual movies like “Hedwig and the Angry Inch”, which, regardless of your views on the subject matter has one of the most inspired soundtracks of any movie ever. It's a powerful film, despite it's controversial topics. Life itself is the most powerful of films and we are in it ...but we often do not see it because we are, 'too close up on it'. We are 'in it'. We are immersed and we are dreaming. It's all a dream and when you wake up, the dream is gone and further... the dream has no influence any longer, except... perhaps, flashes here and there... a remembrance like the sudden appearance of the face of an old lover in your mind... even if it is just the thought of a cigarette, or the image of beads of moisture on a glass of scotch that trigger a cascade of images from the past. We hunger after these parts as if they somehow were some composite of the whole but they were just props.

We must build that magic carpet from the force generated by the consistency of a higher love. Woven into the fabric of that carpet will be all the things needed to take you everywhere and anywhere you might want to go, or more importantly, be supposed to go ...because that is something most of us have little awareness of. We can be very clear on where we think we want to go, or should be but... the other is often an elusive mystery. We discover more about that as our disenchantment with the world progresses and it will progress, though this may be at a different speed for each of us. It is what the purpose of demonstration is all about. We are all meant to be somewhere. How wonderful it would be if that were where we presently are, in the most complete and enduring sense of it.

End Transmission.......

There will be a radio broadcast this weekend and it will be made available at some point.

You ever take those IQ tests on line? I do occasionally. On the most complete one I got this-

You scored 145 on our IQ Test.

Your IQ Range is Above 140 and you are EXTREMELY INTELLIGENT.

Congratulations on completing our IQ test! Based on your answers to the test questions, your IQ is above 140.

IQ scores are based on a scale where a score of 100 is the average score. By scoring higher than 100, you have shown that you have a higher than average intelligence level. Your score range of above 140 is the highest category and indicates that you are extremely intelligent, so again, congratulations are in order!

Your intelligence level can say a lot about how you approach life. By having a high score, you are someone who can face their challenges and often overcome them easily. You look at the world and are able to make sense of it by fitting together the pieces of the puzzle.

Thank you for taking our fun IQ test!

I also got 127 and 157 and one of them that was quite strange gave me a 106 which I have never gotten before ever, my lowest of all time being 122 previously. However, the one that gave me the 106 also called me stupid for taking a 7 question test to begin with and for thinking one's intelligence could be measured by such a short test so... whatever. No, I'm not bored. It just seemed to be something to do and I was curious if I might have been getting stupider with the passage of time given that I seem to be less effective at some things than I was. This could be because I am in a hostile environment in terms of the invisible side of the equation. Sometimes it pays to check the astrocartography.

Salutes Vis (writing briefl- from a thumbfuck gadget...),
big congratulations to your IQ test results -most excellent)!
I myself got at most 142 IQ result in one of them and some are really a hard stone.
Doing it some times just to examine and excercise my wordly head (grin).
Be most well, God bless you and thanks for all you do!
Now on to your latest Origami.

Love To Push Those Buttons said...

I took 3 of those tests one week. I averaged 135. But what does it mean? You've been exposed to this or that information, in a lot of cases.

Anyway. . .love? Fear? I'm just getting progressively more annoyed, and my temper is getting shorter at being progressively inconvenienced over sheer garbage that doesn't matter worth a whit.

I must say, however; I'm glad I played so few of the standard mortal flotsam games even when I was still a 'food product' (under 16 for most, but it took me until 32 to outgrow that stage of mental development.), and have so few problems for it. I'm also freer than most. Me thinks the biggest thing that curtails true freedom is a sense of personal obligation to what ever. I have very few of those. In fact, in the right circumstances; I can sever what's left of them in a split second. So here is my obligatory NEENER-NEENER and BBBBBBLLLLPPPPPHHHHHHT to top it off.

Love is the answer. For those of us surrounded by Love, working hard to protect all the people in our lives. Seeing to their needs and being there for them.

I feel for and pray for those that are alone in this world. To be alone is no choice. To be alone is usually the effect of pushing everyone away or using up the Love others give to a point where they eventually run away.

The selfishness that permeates this world is a sickness. Repent. Accept Jesus Christ as your Saviour. He is the way out.

Lori said...

Well, Vis, I always knew that you were smarter than the average bear :)

And I love you to the moon and back!

The last two nights I purposely sent you a message to see if one of them might surface in your next writing. The fact that the word "Island" appeared in the title today is good enough evidence for me. The details of the particular one that you mentioned may or may not pertain to what I had in mind but in a way I did call you to it.

And then you mentioned "to walk in all things contrary to the world". Yesterday I spent too much time struggling with an idea to change the direction of all these "walks" for breast cancer (which they are having in my town today). How about a walk for LOVE? And your topic today is very much about LOVE.

I think I understand the dilemma you are in these days with finding new ways to say what is in your heart. I encourage you to keep on trying cause if you knew how some/most of us sit on the edge of our seats just waiting to read another reenforcement from you, well, we do.

Looking forward to listening to your broadcast later on today. Have a blessed day.

Love, Lori

I once took a real live IQ test with real live psychiatrist(s). Court ordered, no doubt.
The apprentice shrink, (the boss left in a snit), said I got 144 and if you could tell the difference between a square and a circle, it would be higher. I said .. "I knew that"
Offered a full scholarship to a prestigious university shortly thereafter, I said no thanks.
My would be benefactors, as if launched from a jack in the box, once more waxed pathetic as to what is what and what's wrong with me.
I said, look man .. I'm 19 years old and I've been in school 12 years ... do the math.
The rest, as they say ...

Ooops - reinforcement - knew I should have checked it out first!

Did you believe them when they told you you're extremely intelligent?

Did you run across a question like this early on:

How much wood would a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood

A) 500 board feet per hour

B) 750 board feet per hour

C) 1000 board feet per hour

D) None of the above

And did you run into a question like this later on

A woodchuck chucks 750 board feet per hour. How much wood does a woodchuck chuck in 25 minutes. Of curse you devise the equation 750*25/60 and choose 312.5 board feet.

What you see there is an example of a pattern of the answers to the early questions presented in the problems of the later questions. You have to ask yourself "Is this by accident or design?". You have to answer yourself "It's by design". Subsequently, you have to ask yourself "Do the questions get harder from #1 up?". You answer "No, they don't and why would they." You reason that the questions would get easier, by this pattern, starting at the back and working your way toward #1. You refer to the instructions which say : Answer as many questions as possible in the time allotted. Well, no rule against starting at the back there. So, they test you for identifying patterns and if you have the confidence to take advantage of those patterns. The game is for points. You will get more points if you start at the back. It's the smart thing to do.

Again referring to the instructions: Answer as many questions as possible in the time allotted. Well, all you need to answer ALL the questions is your no. 2 pencil. Nothing there about studying every question, or even reading it. So, you do what's only smart again and 'answer' every question you couldn't study at the warning of 30 second left. If you answer all B's, you will surely get some right, but if you shotgun them you have a chance of getting them all right, but you also have a chance of getting them all wrong. Are you a bettor or a gambler? They're gonna know. They don't test just for how clearly what they told you was written in stone. You can see how their measures of intelligence have a lot to do with your balls to act on what you know has to be true.

142 may be 'extremely intelligent', but that's not a category. The person who gets stroked by that is the easiest to manipulate and that's the biggest problem with asshole people these days. Just tell them they're superior versions of their parents because of evolution and they are all over that bandwagon like raving fanatics. Blind to the realization that cars take a whole transportation industry to support and industry to support those industries, they'll say things so stupid as "Our ancestors never invented cars". What good would a car be without a gas station or bridges across the rivers? Only a fool would make a car. And then they'll wank about overpopulation in complete ignorance and hypocrisy. If the population were reduced to 500 million, you wouldn't have cars again.

The liars on the internet are like the death from 1000 flea bites. Bloggers are advanced versions of high school gossips. Always flitting about from one superficial tangent to the other like gnats on the surface, incapable of going radial. Tireless self promotion, all in lockstep obedience to the baal idol of collegianity. Just showing off for eachother.

I've not even finished the post (yet) but I have to say, it is BRILLIANT:

Visible said...

I only mentioned the IQ tests to see how many people run off and do a few. I had a theory in my head and I don't expect any one with about 30 questions to be conclusive but particular questions are suited up for one level and some for another and what I think is that you take a bunch of them and average it out. I've taken the big and comprehensive ones and the Iowa state tests and other things including the Minnesota Multiphasic... intelligence is not a sign of humanity or worth so I don't take it seriously. I know I'm intelligent and I suspect other people think so too but I know for a fact that there are people I neither respect or admire that have higher scores than myself. I take no pride or sense of accomplishment from doing well on these kinds of things. It is in the area of service to the wider good that one ought to find their sense of accomplishment but they should be quiet about it too.

It is amusing to me when someone gets a number that is right in front of them wrong and then proves by the way they shape their language and the personality profile they present in the process that they are near exactly what they are accusing the other of. Check it out my friends and see if I am not quite close to the mark in this observation.

A couple of comments were made but one slipped under the radar because of the other and maybe that was the point.

Guldur said...

Vis - right, that matters not (the IQ). Humanity/Spirit, true wisdom matters.
My prev. comment - WTF that seems messes somehow.. hate those gadgets thumbing.

BCii said...

Intelligence is a double-edged sword. It takes a refined spiritual discernment to use it in the service of growth and harmony. Fortunately, our beloved host is blessed with both. ;)

We can never rest on our laurels. Every moment strips us of our past accomplishments. We are naked and empty, looking only to the fulfillment of the imperative of the now to clothe and fill us. The now lacks for nothing and yet asks of us our all, giving totality in exchange for being.

Life is sacred. Whether we see it and live it as such is up to us. Inner guilt, shame, denial, and fear - and all their children - are the seeming enemies we are here to embrace and call by name. Forgive yourself and just see what's there. What may have seemed an impossible war may come to be as simple as breathing.

Peace to all.

"We all have an account there [in the bank of Karma]. We've all got a checking account and a savings account and investments that have been made over the course of time. Some of these might be good investments and some bad and they both accrue interest for interest and industry given."

In the course of my day's work today, I found a jewel of a text: Compensation by Ralph Waldo Emerson. It's basically a treatise on Karma. Important stuff to know. Beautifully written, too.

"In general, every evil to which we do not succumb is a benefactor. As the Sandwich Islander believes that the strength and valor of the enemy he kills passes into himself, so we gain the strength of the temptation we resist."

" is as impossible for a man to be cheated by any one but himself, as for a thing to be and not to be at the same time. There is a third silent party to all our bargains. The nature and soul of things takes on itself the guaranty of the fulfilment of every contract, so that honest service cannot come to loss. If you serve an ungrateful master, serve him the more. Put God in your debt. Every stroke shall be repaid. The longer the payment is withholden, the better for you; for compound interest on compound interest is the rate and usage of this exchequer."

"There is a deeper fact in the soul than compensation, to wit, its own nature. The soul is not a compensation, but a life. The soul
is. Under all this running sea of circumstance, whose waters ebb and flow with perfect balance, lies the aboriginal abyss of real Being. Essence, or God, is not a relation, or a part, but the whole. Being is the vast affirmative, excluding negation, self-balanced, and swallowing up all relations, parts, and times within itself. Nature, truth, virtue, are the influx from thence. Vice is the absence or departure of the same. Nothing, Falsehood, may indeed stand as the great Night or shade, on which, as a background, the living universe paints itself forth; but no fact is begotten by it; it cannot work; for it is not. It cannot work any good; it cannot work any harm. It is harm inasmuch as it is worse not to be than to be."

I don't know why it is that you would want me to choose scripture over intuition but it is a lot like leftovers as opposed to what is right there on the plate. A feast in any case if one is capable of understanding it.

long john said...

The Hare Krsna mahamantra is neither scripture nor "like leftovers".

As the supreme personality of Godhead Krsna is absolute, Krsna and the the name of Krsna are non-different, the mahamantra is transcendental. Krsna is present in and as the name of Krsna.

Hearing, chanting, or remembering the name of Krsna instantaneously elevates one onto the transcendental spiritual platform, which is above and beyond the three gunas - the three modes of material nature (ignorance, passion, and goodness).

By simply chanting the Hare Krsna mahamantra (internally or externally) one instantly elevates into divine transcendental plane of Krsna Consciousness. There is no need whatsoever to labor over philosophy or scripture.

Again, if you would kindly simply listen to the brief explanations in the Hari Nama Cintamani audiobook, as well as sincerely chanting the Hare Krsna mahamantra, then this will all become revealed by the mercy of the Supreme Godhead, Sri Krsna. Thank you.

Here is Srila Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada's purport to the Hare Krsna mahamantra.

Hare Krsna Hare Krsna
Krsna Krsna Hare Hare
Hare Rama Hare Rama
Rama Rama Hare Hare
