A Manifest State, Clothed in Darkness and a Triumphant Ineffable Love.

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

(Christmas came early this year. One of my biggest heroes and the finest collaborator I have ever worked with, took one of my better postings and did his usual Maestro Magic).

The thought that this was true about the posting came into my mind immediately after I proofed it. I don't like to get into the value of measuring my work because, if it is any good, I didn't write it. Gratitude fills the room I occupy with waves of appreciation. Cue-Speechlessness.)

World unchanging- beneath the cover-slip of fear. Anxious angst of no discernible source. The fidget of time, trembling with negative awe. Fingers tapping on the table, interspersed with sighs. Something from long ago, the size, shape and constitution forgotten but... there is an uneasy silence, as if someone knows more than they are aware of.

From whence does it come? It comes out of the nightmare catcher of material darkness. This is not the first thought that might come to mind as one ponders the source of uncertainty. One might think of The Devil sleepwalking. One might think of the coalescing wrath of the ineffable, as the world wobbles in disorientation, the center cannot hold as the axis loses sight of True North and is falsely magnetized and going South. One might consider the nature of the times and the gathering suspense that attends each changing line from the Cliff Notes I-Ching. James Earl Jones has been replaced by Geraldo Rivera. Luke... this is not your father; it is a strange cuckold who rapes their own mind.

The uneasiness that comes out of material darkness seems to have a multiplicity of origins. Materialism is Legion. It seems to be coming from everywhere, like ventriloquism speakers. The fixative is not fixed. It's all alchemy but... in times of material darkness there are a surfeit of bad alchemists. It speaks to overkill because in times of material darkness, everything is trying to kill you. Overkill is a synonym for surfeit. Myriad is a synonym for Legion.

The demons were cast out of the possessed man and sent into the Gadarene Swine. This was allegedly at the request of the demons. After this happened, the whole town went out to meet Jesus and pleaded with him to leave the region. What? Read the text that attends these links. There are all sorts of strange associations that are composed of information that begs certain questions.

Material darkness is a manifest state that is clothed in darkness. As anyone who have ever entered a room that was in darkness knows, you do not know what is in that room, unless you were recently in that room with the lights on and you still don't really know because it could have been rearranged in your absence and even more important; how well you you recall the exact placement of all the objects in the room when the light was on?

Material darkness is very disturbing because it seems to be lit. You seem to be able to tell where you are going. Material darkness is lit with a false light. When you look up the definition of 'false light' in a search engine you get a legal term. If we search for, 'what is spiritual false light' then we get some interpretations, general and specific when related to something specific. We find that there are different types of spirituality that have different qualities of light.

Then there is a false light that exists in the afterlife. No doubt you remember that scene in Poltergeist where the little girl is being admonished not to go into the light. I think this is what they are talking about.

I have not read this article. However... I suspect it deals with something that often comes to my mind when I think of the New Age. I have a former girl friend. We had one of those star-crossed romances. It was volatile and explosive. She was ALWAYS into The New Age and I was not. I have a phobia about the New Age. I realize that there are many aspects to the New Age that are valid, legitimate and reflect certain ageless teachings and timeless certainties that are resident in a place prior to the religious or spiritual schematic they later appear in. At the same time, the New Age is rife with deception and dangers greater that mere physical dangers. There are systems of thought like, A Curse of Miracles.

Right off the bat you've got the false news, Huffington Post promoting it and you've got Offal Winfrey promoting it. Do you really need any further clarification of this? I do not. The character of the authors might create questions for some. There are so many points of view and so many reworked and revisionist efforts, where ancient, legitimate teachings, were recycled into new and improved systems, where the ones so engaged, profited immensely from the plagiarisms. There are so many characters like, Dr. Wayne Dyer, Marianne Williamson and Eckhart Tolle-Booth; too many to list who demonstrated as self interest icons, grabbing anything that wasn't nailed down and then coming back with crowbars for everything else. I've been studying the phenomena for years and over and over and over, coming to the same conclusions while, freely admitting that there are some number of good and useful ideas that can be found.

I'm not interested in the latest version of Legion. I'm not interested in 10,001 New Age systems for Dummies. I'm not interested in being a motivational speaker, although, I do happen to be one, I guess. I'm not charging you for it. This is not due to some high-minded altruism on my part. The fact is that I cannot charge for something that is priceless and should not charge for something that is worthless and you may well, on occasion get both from me. Hopefully the latter is a rare occurrence (please... dear God.) I have heard that one does not charge for spiritual truth. Those who are charging have all kinds of slick and convoluted justifications for charging. Shutan is a Tribe name, though I don't know if it applies to this carnival barker.

I am fine with people getting something from the New Age and I have CLOSE FRIENDS who profit from what they have gleaned from the New Age. I don't pass judgment on that area of inquiry overall. I simply have reservations about any number of practitioners from that neck of the deep woods. I love you so much Lord! You are the one that I seek to be in communion with. You are the one who will and does illuminate my thought and flood my heart with your love. I need no other resource. You are the be all and end all- the alpha and omega of my existence. You have many names and faces but you are the perfect mirror of the self unto the self. Like a wind that never, never stops blowing. Like a stream that never, never stops flowing. In this way, my love keeps right on growing, through every mad escape into wonder on my way to you. Because you are everything to me. You are everything to me, as far... as far as I can see. You are ...everything to me.

I got nothing more to say about the New Age, the Old Age and any age in between. I got nothing more to say about any religion or system of thought. I don't know jack about chakra cleansing. I don't know about fire walking and aura cleansing. If you type it into a search engine, the drop down menu offers, aura cleansing music, aura cleansing spray, aura cleansing bath, aura cleansing techniques, aura cleansing reiki, aura cleansing spray recipe, aura cleansing benefits, aura cleansing essential oils and- for some reason- Aura Toronto. Chakra cleansing has Toronto also (grin), as well as all of the options that are available for Auras as well.

God, whether associated with religion or simple aspiration, devoid of trappings, is my road. I don't have any use for religion but I know many people do, so I do not discount it for others. Some people are much better off with a system to operate in and intention defines their course. The state of their heart and their pursuit of the 'qualities of God' says everything about the way 'character is fate' applies to them. I know God is real and I know that anything that may be considered real about me is associated with the indwelling deity, for which I provide a residence. If the ineffable is resident in me, it immediately and completely displaces certain other things. Where God is present, certain other things cannot be. Where God is not present, certain other things are resident. I prefer the automatic adjustments made to me by hosting the divine. It is the decision of the divine whether I am able to host the divine. I trust that the ineffable has that predilection in respect of me.

The ineffable has said to me, “rely on me!” The ineffable has to me he is coming, more and more into residence as the necessary changes are made in me to permit this. The ineffable has told me I am his friend. It is my highest aspiration that this be so. The ineffable is the centerpiece of my existence. Every other consideration is secondary. The ineffable is more important than everything else put together. May this be enduring, everlasting and true of everyone of us, for whom it is the single greatest and most profound objective.

May the Lord, bless and protect and transform us. May we be swept up in the love of the ineffable. May everything else drop away and the divine alone remain.

End Transmission.......

A fundie named tsisageya came in and started giving me a massive ration of shit. Probably not seeing that I quote Jesus Christ way more than anyone else and telling me that using the term the ineffable was my way of presenting myself as the ineffable. I wager this person does not even know what the word means or implies. I rejected all 3 of her comments. We're past all that juvenile wrassling, where the person making the charges is actually the person who most resembles the charges being made. Bye.

There is an old saying by Samuel Johnson, “Depend upon it, sir; when a man knows he is to be hanged in a fortnight, it concentrates his mind wonderfully.” I suspect that we (humanity's collective consciousness) are in that spot; we know that something big is up. In the medical community, they used to call this type of thing a 'healing crisis' - where the body knew it was do-or-die time, and called-up all its resources. Profound things could happen, beyond medical expectations. I think that - collectively - humans know that we are badly infected, and our resources are being 'pooled' in that manner...

Outside of bad-guy manipulations, I think that the New Age phenomenon came about because religions (as a whole) no longer invoked the spiritual. By that, I mean in-your-face spiritual happenings, as opposed to god-in-the-sky. I am reminded of an incident a few decades back at my then-college:

The Dean of the College had broken his ankle, and it was not healing. He was limping-around on crutches. On an inner-whim one day, I asked if I could try some healing on him. With a patronizing look on his face, he sat down. I put my hands on his ankle, and invoked some higher assistance. A great deal of energy started flowing down my arms. The Dean exclaimed that his ankle had suddenly gotten really hot, jumped up, and virtually ran away from me on his crutches. He was obviously not prepared for the intrusion of the spiritual into his day-to-day life...

Now, combine the 'crisis' of the first paragraph with the 'innate abilities' in the subsequent paragraphs: Times might be tough, but they could produce a really cool result...

Best Wishes,
Ray B.

I am not writing this to get into a pissing contest with you. I read your work and your words help a great deal. However we disagree on a Acourse in Miracles. Marrieanne just jumped on a band wagon and I don't care about her. I studied the Course for 4 years and I love God as much as anyone. There was nothing in the book that disparaged God or encouraged Materialism. It is a foundation for Inner Peace and it was for me. It came long way before New Age by the way. The Church hated it as well.
It helps one to look inward and step blaming the outside world and people for all that goes Wrong in your life. The Couse is about Forgivness.. One of the work book lessons is GOD is the strength in which I trust. Most of the daily lessons are God oriented. The Course is not far from AA in some respects. SO that being said, I expect you will not have a positive reply to this. If you have not read the Book then you have no basis for your contempt of it and if you have read the book I would like to know what you find so curseful about it.
Now this is your blog and I respect that. I look forward to your words and this is the second time I have found your reference to the Course to be beyond negative. I had to express my feelings in this. As I said no pissing contest. Its your blog . Views like this are personal and not to be debated as to whether they are good or bad. Its your right to feel as you do and mine to tell you I am sorry you feel that way and A Course in Miracles was a big help to me as a great deal of your writings are

Greetings, Dog Poet.

Your output of late has been phenomenal, both quantity and quality. I dropped in to catch up and ended up re-charging. Glad to hear events with you are proceeding the way that they are; seems like a natural progression for you.

It seems ironic that our so-called culture can manage to be so bizarre and yet so boring at the same time. Dysfunction posing as creativity, I suppose. One has to wonder what is in store next when the engineered chaos designed to distract no longer functions that way. Lots happening on many planes right now and a huge sense of something even more momentous waiting in the wings. "Mr. Apocalypse, please pick up the white courtesy phone."

This is where I find non-doctrinal spirituality to be an advantage; no filters, no interpretations, no forms, rituals, or traditions. Just pure energy transmission. Of course it's up to me to find the ultimate meaning in it all, but again, easier to do without the window dressing. I don't know at this point if I'm capable or worthy of this path, but I figure I'll find out soon enough. Beings like you certainly assist the process for me and help me to recognize timeless truths when I hear them. A valuable ability in this day and age! Your thoughts also keep me in touch with what it takes to stay proactive and positive, something I struggle with. For this and all you do you have my utmost gratitude. Thank You.

Ray B. and Buttons and all the other calm and insightful beings who lurk here and share their ponderings, Thank You as well. May we all weather the changes to come with Love and aplomb. Keep Howlin'!

Peace, Love, Truth

Reggie; As I was AT PAINS (grin) to say all through the posting, I recognize that there are a lot of people who get real value out of elements in the New Age and I have no problem with that at all. Most of my problem with a Curse in Miracles is the people I have encountered (not talking about you!!!) and they just rub me the wrong way. On the other hand I have noted there are people devoted to that course and I respect that. Whatever works is fine with me. It just doesn't work for me. It's like Eckhart Tolle Booth. I know directly from individuals that were there just how mercenary that guy is and I have a lot of individual situations where he showed his colors. On the other hand there are people that like his droning hypnotic spiel and I've no quarrel with that. If people are getting good things from something and I get nothing, that is just what it is and I wish them well, as I do you.

As for a Curse of Miracles, my biggest problem is the derivative. I can literally see where they have directly taken things from other vehicles and rewritten them as if they were original. It just gnaws at me when I come across it. Sometimes I am too critical and I hope for that to even out as time passes.
