Shine Brightly in the Consuming Fire of Divine Love.

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

I would like, within the limitations of my ability, to talk a little about Bhakti Yoga today; which for me is the only legitimate fast track to the divine that exists for the present and the least dangerous of all the options out there.

My life keeps going by and I step in and out of it. These days I spend a great deal of my time in reflection, as well as preparation for my ongoing journey. It might be awhile yet and it may be right around the corner, either is fine with me. I have come to understand that loving the divine is so very, very much easier, once all the distractions that the greatest majority of us live with; are in pursuit of, or which predominates over all of the esoteric alternatives are... gone.

Without my even being aware of it, at first, nearly all of the usual human attractions and compulsions just slipped out the door and haven't returned. I find myself watching life behind some kind of glass. It's a movie that is being screened in the mind but once the film in the projector has been changed, ordinary life becomes irrelevant and one can immerse themselves in more important considerations.

One still goes to the supermarket. One still eats and excretes. One sleeps and awakens in the dream. One drives and walks and watches and listens to all of the sounds of the world around them but the effect of all of it has changed.

Last night (as happens a couple of times a month) I laid in my bed and did not sleep most of the night. So I did as I usually do and repeated, “I love you.” over and over and over On this night there was an atmosphere of static and confusion and I could not seem to break through it. Images of the past spiraled through to haunt me over mistakes made and opportunities missed. The Voice entered and said, “Do not occupy your mind with thoughts of what is past. These have all been paid for through your suffering. They are not relevant anymore.” Try telling that to the monkey mind. However, the point is that regardless of the static and confusion and the seeming distance between myself and the divine, I did not allow any of these distractions to deter me from the continuous repetition of, “I love you.” I felt the obstacles that hung in the air. I felt all the barriers that occasionally come and go and are sometimes not there at all and I just kept at it. I studiously ignored whatever it was that was interfering with my efforts and I told myself that I would not allow anything to intrude, no matter how much it did intrude; no matter what the difficulty might be I would persevere and I did. I fell asleep at some point. I awoke this AM and said, “Good morning Lord.” It is another day and I do not want to forget that every day given to me is an opportunity to celebrate the almighty, no matter how far away the almighty might 'seem' to be and no matter how difficult the effort might become.

The path of Love is not an easy cruise to some literal or metaphorical Caribbean island. Though we paint it as the only sure and certain route here, this does not mean it is also an easy route. There is bound to be opposition. In times of material darkness there are agents of that darkness who seek to hinder and hamper our efforts and often- these days- no real efforts are even made. The world seems to be swept away in a tidal wave of garbage and noxious dreams that spin themselves out of perverted daylight. Humanity is there to be found in the midst at all times but it takes a concerted determination to rise and greet it at every turn where it seeks to appear. To me, this is the real work... to move through the murk of this gray-scale existence and reach out to every hungry and troubled heart with some portion of the sunlight we are all given for the purpose of sharing.

If we are cheap with our sunlight, the amount of sunlight given will decrease and further decrease until we find ourselves in darkness. I refer you to the parable from Jesus the Christ where he gave the example of the three men to whom a certain amount of talent were given. So it is when you are kept awake in the night and you strive and reach for unity with the ineffable and you get nowhere... you continue and continue as if, at any moment, you will achieve that unity and you will not cease until you do; even if it is a thousand times a thousand nights, even if you are in prison or confined in even greater distress in the houses of the rich. You do not deter. You do not immerse yourself in comforting distractions. One day the sun will rise in your heart and there will be no further static or confusions.

The love of God is a consuming fire and fortunate is the one so consumed. It is important to understand that such a Love will demand everything of you and such a Love will try and test you to discover the level of your dedication and sincerity; “Many are called but few are chosen.” I am reminded of that short but powerful poem by Stephen Crane, “The Wayfarer.” The reality of this great and singular quest is precisely as the poem describes and there have been many souls who have discovered the truth of it as they went surging forward in all their temporary and unchallenged zeal, right up until they saw that every blade of grass was not a blade of grass.

Imagine in your own life and in your own mind, how often you forget about the ineffable and how often petty and incidental concerns arise in your thoughts to take you away. Later you can often not remember what these concerns were but you can certainly remember that they were of small importance, since you often cannot even remember what they were. When we look back on our lives we can't recall how we got where we got at all. Life is filled with things of small importance. For me, it is critical to remember that there are forces that are actively engaged in steering us wrong and placing obstacles in our way and it is even more critical to recall certain clues such as this one from “The Lord's Prayer.” “Lead us not into temptation.” Every agency that places obstacles and lures upon our path are not entities of the dark side. Lord Ganesha is portrayed with two items. One of them ensnares us and one of them frees us. Regardless of whatever religious schematic you may consider the nature and ruling power of the universe through, the similarities are glaring for the objectively minded. Unfortunately for many we live in a time of punishing subjectivity. It tends to influence the way we think and feel and behave. It takes a strong and inspired heart to break free and a steadfast intention to continue to that point.

The rate and intensity of contention between and among us seems to increase by the day, according to the divide and conquer philosophy that guides the game plans of those who serve the Prince of Darkness. In this time of the harvesting of souls, it is of critical importance to both sides of the equation in this truly important time... in what direction we are swayed.

I can truthfully say that recent years, until the beginning of this one, have been extremely difficult for me. Strangely enough, during some of the most difficult and inexplicable events, I just moved through it as if it were of no consequence at all, even though they were life and circumstance changing and might have caused me no end of grief ...but it all seemed like a passing dream to me. I didn't get angry. I was filled with wonder that it happened and uninformed as to the meaning of any of it. It passed and I moved on from one situation to another, to the one I find myself in and it's all behind me there and of no present relevance. I could have gotten angry, or fearful, or despairing or depressed but none of this occurred and I do not chalk this up to any great strength or fortitude on my part. It is as if the ineffable has been slowly but surely slipping ever deeper into my life and every challenge and trauma was just one more act on the part of the ineffable to distract me from the reality of the almighty taking up residence in my life. I realize now that it is not what happens to you that is most meaningful but it is how you react to it. Once you have stilled the reactive mind you are closer to your real home than you might imagine.

Loving God will draw the divine to you because the almighty is helpless before the sincere love of any soul. It has been said in many Eastern texts that the ineffable is the slave of Love. We must consider that this implies being a willing slave because the almighty is not subject to anything that the almighty does not choose to be subject to.

Love the divine with all your heart and soul and mind and the Lord will return it in kind. This is what I believe and this is what I am inspired to speak of. Let this Love permeate your existence and see every event in your life as a blessing and it will surely prove to be so. Remember that every incident in your life, no matter how insignificant it may seem, is a particular dealing of the ineffable with your soul.

Mr Visable... since you lived in Europe I have a question regarding the Azoras. Have you been there or know anyone who has?
And what of Portugal... is is livable and kind?

I have lived in Portugal; in the Al Garve. There are a lot of British there and anywhere the British ex pat to they cause the real estate costs to rise to absurd levels. This is no knock on them. It is merely a truthful observation. For some reason, a large percentage of the British have a lot of money. The Al Garve is very desert like and water can be a problem. It is also too populated in places and traffic can be a bitch and the Portuguese are the worst drivers in Europe; 3 times worse than their nearest competitor. North western Portugal is beautiful and you can get nice homes and sundry for very little comparatively with the rest of Europe. The Portuguese as wonderful people though often childlike (similar to Southern Italians). This can be a good thing and a bad thing. They speak English there often and their movies are often in English. Lisbon is the most beautiful city in Europe.

I was planning on moving to the Azores but never got there. It is a wonderful place so I have been told but various supplies can be in short supply as it all comes in on boats. On the main island there are many condos and some night life and I've heard good things. The rest of it can be remote and it is in an earthquake belt. On the whole I wish we had moved to Portugal and not southern Italy as I might still be there. All drugs are decriminalized (if that's your bag). Otherwise use the search engines and you can take all kinds of graphic and virtual tours. I had a great time there. The ocean in the Al Garve is fantastic for swimming and perambulating. It gets very populated in the warmer months in places like Albuferia and such. Further along the coast line into Spain headed to Marbella and beyond is can be really congested and the Spanish builders and realtors and politicians were all terrific criminals and looted the area as if the were conquistadors so the whole of the landscape is dotted with construction projects that never got constructed. I did not care much for Spain but once again it is no knock on the people. I spent a season in Marbella; beautiful town but crowded and sometimes unpleasant.

Vis: “On this night there was an atmosphere of static and confusion and I could not seem to break through it.”

If I may, that happens for me, also. I have developed ways of short-circuiting that circumstance. A minor tutorial...

Most humans have a Higher Self, under whatever name. This is our connection to the divine. I see/sense it as the levels higher than normal-Ray leading off into the spiritual distance. It can be felt as 'Presence' or loving energy or expanded consciousness or even direction. Many things. I tend to get a more-direct connection with it by following the Chakras upward. At some point, a 'connection' occurs, or is strengthened-enough to notice, and it feels like this additional 'body' is above you and around you (and through you)...

The key here is to notice how that feels. Take a conscious 'snapshot' while it is still occurring. That becomes your 'normal' reference to Higher Self. Anything different will trigger a something's wrong sense...

When I have “an atmosphere of static and confusion and I can not seem to break through it,” that usually means somebody/something has gotten in the way of my connection to Higher Self. It can be semi-harmless, like somebody liking your energy and 'glomming on'. Or, it can be a real attempt to interfere or even influence. The key to the situation is to notice it, as above...

And then, you take steps to alter the situation. This will depend on your character and woo-woo level. Personally, I have not found that continuously repeating “I love you” has done much to lift someone 'off'. If you have a baddie and he/she/it just does not like that 'vibe', that can cause them to leave. Otherwise, that phrase is just a nice, warm 'bath' type-of-feeling to them. Why leave?

If one has established a 'feeling' connection to Higher Self, it is often possible to bypass or end-run the interference. Just remember that feeling, and express a desire to experience it again. Higher Self often wants a connection, so can be 'trained' to be looking for your signal. This often forces a someone 'out of the path'.

When one cannot break-through, it is fine to ask for aid. Folk often have guides, helpers, or allies, whether or not they have consciously requested them. Just ask for help. Many of the good-guys will not 'interfere' until they are asked. (Baddies do not have that restriction.) Ask that anyone/anything interfering with your connection to Higher Self be removed. You may feel a 'tussle' in the aethers, and feel suddenly lighter and more centered. It works...

Believe it or not, the body also has an indirect connection to Higher Self. It actually is better than the ego's connection, because the body is simpler and doesn't know it cannot connect. You can just ask the body to connect-you, in a pinch. If you have made your body your friend, it is glad to help... (This is probably why the baddies tell you to distance-yourself from your body.)

There are baddie 'tricks' that you can recognize, once you realize what is possible:

A favorite is misdirection, or 'running your emotions'. A baddie will just pump-energy into some old earth-experience of yours, and you are off and running. Prime distraction. Once you are aware of this possibility, you can catch yourself in the middle of it - and can even use it as a 'directional beacon' right back to the baddie. No need to be a victim of this; there is plenty of help out there...

Another favorite 'play' is to put you to sleep in the middle of something. It is not you doing it. Once you recognize how this 'feels' (as opposed to regular dozing-off), you can 'directional beacon' it as above. The 'hit' actually can be useful in that way.

The other thing to watch-for is shamanistic manipulation. You can actually be 'led' down a primrose path, so to speak. Glamour, in the old sense of the word. This is where simple-logic comes in. Usually, whomever is doing this cannot prevent 'logical-inconsistencies' from creeping-in. If you are aware that something like this is possible, it will jolt you out of the 'spell'.

Remember, the baddies 'win' if you do not connection to your Higher Self. Determination and practice will cause you to develop techniques that work for you. Expect many fails and a gradual mastery. Soon, you will even be half-happy for the opportunity to 'turn' baddies who interfere...

Best Wishes,
Ray B.

Bhakti, mantra, and the path of "love", well, then this a fine place to quote and play some George Harrison. In "Isn't It A Pity" he seems to addressing the heartache of "passionate" love, which one dictionary defines as; "Powerful, exclusive, and obsessive love. Violent affectivity that hampers the judgement. It is fuelled by illusion and exaggeration, and insists that things be other than the way they are." Couple that with an excerpt from Matthieu Ricard's "Happiness"; "The obsessive desire that often accompanies passionate love can degrade affection, tenderness, and the joy of appreciating and sharing the life of another. It is the diametric opposite of altruistic love. It arises from egocentrism that merely cherishes itself in the other, or worse still, seeks to Forge it's own happiness at the others expense. This kind of desire wants only to appropriate and control the people, objects, and situations that attract it."
Forgive my circuitous path to dear old George. The other night I grabbed my guitar and just kept cycling George's brilliant simplicity. (With the obligatory diminished 7th chord that figures prominently in numerous compositions of his.)

Greetings Les,

It's been a while since I have connected with you. I just read your latest two posts, and I can relate to your feelings on turning around on this latest trip for you. It was a good move, and I agree about turning inward now instead of focusing on the despair as a result of this planet being run by demonic forces. It's time!

You and I share the same thought patterns in a lot of ways, and our travels thru time have paralleled in a lot of ways.

The perfect storm has arrived on humanities shores, and no human entity will be able to stop what is about to transpire. The coming economic collapse is a mathematical certainty as is WWIII. Just as it was in the movie Avatar, mankind has bulldozed our most precious and sacred entity, our Earth Mother! But God's Light is all powerful and will overpower the darkness!

I can say that our Earth Mother has had enough of mankind's destruction. It will stop now, I have it on good authority!

The Earth changes that are about to occur will dwarf even the nuclear bombs to be set off.

Les, in my heart I know that time is very short. I feel it in my being. Life as we know it is ending. It is time to leave this holographic matrix. It has been put in place to keep humanity chained as slaves. Mankind has been programmed like computers to keep a system going that God never intended humans to transpire to. It is time to end this reality.

Mankind will bring most of it down by its own demise, but the main course will be served up by the Source of all Creation who manifested this world by a thought in a heavenly minute. His hand of judgement is coming, and He will put a complete end to the injustices against the human race, and all the greed and corruption that has spawned such despair around the planet.

There is no sense looking back. It is time to LOOK inside and find true happiness, as I have. I look forward to ending the veil of despair that hangs over the human race. It is a time to rejoice that all the greed and corruption will end, and there will finally be harmony amongst mankind.

We need to share, not beat each other over the head just to survive and have the latest electronic devices.

This is only an illusion created for mankind's entertainment by very dark demonic entities. continuing

So I am off to a mountain top to watch the stars and become of our Mother. She is about to rebirth some of the human race by our Father's seed, His Light.

I resided in Vilcabamba Ecuador for a little while. It is where I will be till this reality dissolves from this plane of existence to another.

There will be no escaping the turmoil that is going to occur. But at least I'll go on God's terms, not these psychopaths that want to destroy this planet.

Unfortunately I will be losing loved ones who will be obliterated by what will befall the United States. It will no longer exist very soon, for Russia and China together will see to that. The leaders of this country believe they can win a war, they cannot, and it will be over within hours of being started.

The only reason for me to be still here is the World Series which my Indians will win! Cleveland Rocks, for this is where rock-n-roll began! Then I can ride off into the sunset and start a new journey! If I don't make it out in time so be it, God has His ways, and if you LOOK to Him, He will shield you from the coming chaos.

All the best Les,

Time Traveler

pierre said... (copy'n'paste'n'comment - often I think of this blog and it's lessons and enumerations when reading all about it.)
From Schaff's VolII History of Christianity p521 (1890)

"The history of the Nicene age shows clearly that the church of God carries the
heavenly treasure in earthly vessels. The Reformation of the sixteenth century was likewise
in fact an incessant war, in which impure personal and political motives of every kind had
play, and even the best men often violated the apostolic injunction to speak the truth in
love. But we must not forget that the passionate and intolerant dogmatism of that time was
based upon deep moral earnestness and strong faith, and so far forth stands vastly above
the tolerance of indifferentism, which lightly plays with the truth or not rarely strikes out
in most vehement intolerance against the faith. (Remember the first French revolution.)
The overruling of divine Providence in the midst of these wild conflicts is unmistakable,
and the victory of the truth appears the greater for the violence of error. God uses all sorts
of men for his instruments, and brings evil passions as well as good into his service. The
Spirit of truth guided the church through the rush and the din of contending parties, and
always triumphed over error in the end." well., maybe up until Vatican II.
Then again, in 1890 he did not have the benefit of Helen Nesta Websters (1921?) History of the French revolution and those Rothschilds funded Bavarian Illuminutters and who knows, some good might come out of it all as he says (Does not Trump speak truth, even though he come from a nest of vipers? or is that just bleeding off the opposition again?). OTOH John Robinson's Proofs of Conspiracy was written in 1790 about those sorts and their Masononic Mislead Lackeys. Schaff is not shy about Judaising influences though.
(Cueing Stephen Stills, Song of Love).

Hereticdrummer said...

Beautiful Vis. Funny you should mention the Azores. When I was in "The Suck" (what we called the U.S. Navy) many moons ago, I did a 6 month deployment there in an anti-submarine warfare squadron. The base was called Lajes and it was on the island of Terceira. You are well aware that the people there are Portuguese, many of them were employed on the base. It was crazy, the Navy did the flying, the Air Force took care of the ground, and the Army had control of the ships. Most of my fellow squids hated it because there was a dearth of drugs, hookers, and any other distraction or depravity that servicemen have access to stateside and most overseas bases. However I loved the beauty and solitude of it, when I wasn't working of course. Many people believe that the Azores are remnants of Atlantis. It's very possible, if not probable. You are also correct, it is a seismically very volatile part of the earth. Some geophysicists think it can blow all to Hell any time now. The tsunamis it would cause can smash the U.S. east coast to smithereens. No sense worrying about what you can't control. That would be a decision for those we cannot see. Be well Brother.

Vis, in line with Hereticdrummer's comment, you might want to search on "mega-tsunami La Palma Canary Islands". Not much chance it will let-go on its own, but various nefarious parties can probably kick-start the calving-off. I have two brothers who are likely in-range of this, so I keep my ears open to 'earthquake' news. I believe it was eight hours from calving-off to East Coast arrival...

(We have the Cascadia fault line off the Northwest Coast that could go at any time, plus there is the Yellowstone Supervolcano. Plenty for baddies to meddle with. Trust in all-God, and enjoy the sunshine & fresh air!)

Visible said...

That is one of the reasons we did not consider The Canarys because everything else about the place was fantastic. In this world right now, nowhere is safe except in the secret chambers of the heart and if the ineffable wants you to survive in this world the ineffable will send you on a spontaneous trip; the point of which you will only find out afterwards.

Reminded me of this...

"I have met with but one or two persons in the course of my life who understood the art of Walking, that is, of taking walks--who had a genius, so to speak, for SAUNTERING, which word is beautifully derived "from idle people who roved about the country, in the Middle Ages, and asked charity, under pretense of going a la Sainte Terre," to the Holy Land, till the children exclaimed, "There goes a Sainte-Terrer," a Saunterer, a Holy-Lander. They who never go to the Holy Land in their walks, as they pretend, are indeed mere idlers and vagabonds; but they who do go there are saunterers in the good sense, such as I mean....

So we saunter toward the Holy Land, till one day the sun shall shine more brightly than ever he has done, shall perchance shine into our minds and hearts, and light up our whole lives with a great awakening light, as warm and serene and golden as on a bankside in autumn."

The beggar wrote; "reminded me of this"

J.M. Harrison has devoted an entire book to "THIS", in "YOU are THIS - Awakening to the Living Presence of Your Soul"

THIS is a powerful little word.

"When used as an all-inclusive description of pure Consciousness, it refers to the totality without division or separation.

The word THIS, when used as an expression of all-inclusivity, automatically takes you out of the old polaric thoughts of the mind, and points to the infinite expanse of pure consciousness.

It provides a precise Non-dual indication of Awareness without requiring analysis or description.

Used as an expression of what IS, it is always here and now, always THIS.

Used alone, without preceding a noun, and not as a precision or emphasis - it is complete, unified and whole. Just THIS, only THIS, simply THIS.

It requires no 'other' word or addition to reveal itself. THIS."

And for those of you with a Christian persuasion, I offer the following improvisation.

"T" (Tau Cross) "HIS".

And then there are those who will say it's nothing more than an anagram of "shit", "you can't touch this!"
