The Beautiful Wisdom of Mukunda.

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

Greetings to you, my dear brothers and sisters on that blessed narrow path to realization; to divine luminous wisdom. I have just discarded a post that addressed certain issues with me and some of the readers, not all of whom come here with the best intentions. In this life I have learned that- not infrequently- people will arrive somewhere with the intention of beings disruptive, or to operate from an infernal mindset, only to discover that over the course of their visits, they had become hooked like a game fish and that all of their surface intents have been turned to the other end of the spectrum and they have found that which they were unaware of searching for has been revealed as the hidden motive so...”rave on MacDuff!”

No matter what direction we think we are moving in. No matter what enterprises we may imagine we are engaged in. No matter whether we think we do not believe, or do believe about an ineffable being, the reality of it is the true arbiter of our awareness and our fate. It is intention that manifests the destiny of outcome.

One of the reasons I chose not to argue or debate with anyone about anything is simply because what is, IS. I find that words without the defining authority of direct experience, to validate whatever there may be at the other end of a telescope or a microscope, are just words. One can find authentication for nonsense and exaggeration in those areas where they are most regularly employed; in the entertainment business, song composition, strange religions and- of course- in the media where without lies, obfuscation and confusion a sought after end result, there might be no media at all and certainly no media in any way similar to what we are served up every day; as I like to say at every available opportunity--- most people don't mind eating shit if you serve it to them warm.

I have spent this life and possibly others searching for God through a less than gossamer mist of alcohol and drugs. In these days, a large body of the human population are all looking for something through that haze; even if it is only oblivion. I suspect the number of those conscientiously searching for the divine (through that mist) are of a much smaller number and those who have been consistent and determined in this quest, regardless of the mist, compose a much, much smaller percentage.

Those of us who are Aghora, or some comparable tantric fringe, are known for ingesting any and all substances that might blow the carbon off of their jets and sometimes put them in touch with the one they cannot interact with unless they have reached a certain vibrational attunement. I did this for decades. I was driven beyond control because... to experience God on a personal level can ruin certain personality types (like me) from being attracted to anything else, except for that ageless 'poet's disease'. However, time eventually takes care of that.

Those who pursue pedestrian allurements will find at the end of life that they are alone in a barren field with no one but Saturn for a playmate. On the other hand, if God has been the passion of your heart, it eventually begins to resonate throughout your being and every molecule of your composition will sing and blow the rooftop off of each previously concealed weakness and fear, transforming dark emotion and personal delusion Into variants of Love on demand, for every occasion and in the declining years you will be in a garden of delight, where every form is a manifestation of light, in which angels dance in ecstatic syncopation with you. It is the fruit of unified devotion so... one might say, whatever force, form or entity who shares your never ending love, becomes your friend and protector... wherever you may go. God is in everything, composes everything and rules all things. Here is the greatest object of desire which so many toss to the side of the road, unseeing of the beauty and majesty of it, which shines and illuminates from within and without. It cannot be challenged or denied in this world where every other option is a kind of suicide. Those who close themselves off from the kingdom of light, wander in darkness until some inexplicable mercy uncovers their eyes.

In recent days I have been reading, “The Essence of Self Realization” by Paramhansa Yogananda. It has pierced my heart with the splendor of its beautiful truths. Yesterday, I got my copy of “The Autobiography of a Yogi”. It has been decades since I read it. Without thinking I asked my friend if it would be attractive for me to read it aloud. Assent was quickly given. I read the first two chapters and both of us were in tears from the impact of the tale being told.

I mentioned the drugs and alcohol carousel that so many of us have ridden more than a time or two. This was because I have put all these things aside now I am higher than ever before because all the better elements of my nature that were being suppressed by these chemicals are now rising to the surface and changing the face, the heart and the mind of my being. I was told as the days passed that I would not have been able to stop until now and I need not blame myself because it was all done for the purpose of demonstration. Sometimes the purpose of demonstration is between only you and the ineffable.

The power and beauty of the words of Mukunda (what Yogananda was called when he was young) are-can be... life changing. Some number of readers are familiar with the different video series that I have put online. I didn't finish any of them but it is what it was. Apropos of that I would be glad to post yet another incomplete video series of Yoganand'a's work; most especially, The Essence of Self Realization and Autobiography of a Yogi. Let me know.

Regardless of how hard this year has been on me (or me on myself), certain spiritual stations and levels of awareness have been granted me through this period of suffering and they are priceless to me. I want to share them with you and I can think of no finer initial portal than the teaching of Mukunda Yogananda.

We are all on the verge of tremendous change, whether we meet it in the air or we are sucked down into the material soup is up to us. Be alert and be aware; when times and conditions become hard that is a moment of opportunity for profound change.

None of us are compelled to go down into the darkness, where the fearful and appetite driven hide from the light. Many of those on the imaginary road to escape think that the darkness is a protection from being observed. The truth is that no such place exists, wherever you go and whatever you do is seen by you.

This is a time of high tension on the precipice of pending change. That which you seek walks on your feet and in your body, as you search for whatever is already in place. It is not a matter of discovery that is reached by an external journey toward some Fata Morgana that has swallowed up countless souls who have stepped out of their protections and into some random seeming lottery of lives to come and go; come and go. It is a matter of recognition and realization of that which is already contained within. It is a state of awareness which comes into being once enough dross has been burned off through suffering and karmic resolution.

What you seek you already possess. Recognize it, adore it, celebrate it. Confirm to yourself that it is the dynamic animating principle, which gives you breath and sight and all else that you exercise in the manifest prison yard; the penitentiary of the mind, where we as convicts sentenced by ourselves, plot our escape. The divine jailer, swinging his keys, is ever present, awaiting only your recognition. You can be free in the moment that you are no longer driven by looping desires, which compose the elements of your imagined cell. We are all prisoners of our body until we learn the dance of liberation; “Shiva Nataraja to the white courtesy phone (grin). Will Lord Shiva Nataraja please come to the white courtesy phone.” This just in, Colin Kaepernick wants to know how come the courtesy phone is white.

God bless and keep you and liberate you the moment you or I or anyone gets it clear enough to move from the driver's seat to the passenger seat.

End Transmission.......

1 Timothy 6:10: 'For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows'.

Notice it said, 'the LOVE of money, not money. Money doesn't make people evil, loving it more than God does.

Harold Rosenthal said, "Most Jews do not like to admit it, but our god is Lucifer...and we are his chosen people. Lucifer is very much alive."

According to the author "Rabi": "Christianity is essentially preoccupied with the individual salvation of man. Judaism only contemplates the salvation of the House of Israel, which alone can permit the salvation of seventy nations of the universe." (Anatomie du Judasime Francaise, pp.203-204)

"The advent of Christ was a national catastrophe for the Jewish people, especially for the leaders," Leon de Poncins writes. "Until then they alone had been the Sons of the Covenant; they had been its sole high priests and beneficiaries... "

He continues: "The irreducible antagonism with which Judaism has opposed Christianity for 2000 years is the key and mainspring of modern subversion...[The Jew] championed reason against the mythical world of the spirit ...he was the doctor of unbelief; all those who were mentally in revolt came to him either secretly or in broad daylight..." (Judaism and the Vatican, pp.111-113.)

Romans 2:28-29, "For he is not a Jew, which is one outwardly; neither is that circumcision, which is outward in the flesh: But he is a Jew, which is one inwardly; and circumcision is that of the heart, in the spirit, and not in the letter; whose praise is not of men, but of God.”

The Pharisees rejected Christ because he taught that God is Love and all men are equal in the sight of God. 'For whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and whoever humbles himself will be exalted. Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You shut the kingdom of heaven in men’s faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let in those who wish to enter...' (Matthew 23:12-13)

“You stiff-necked people! Your hearts and ears are still uncircumcised. You are just like your ancestors: You always resist the Holy Spirit! Was there ever a prophet your ancestors did not persecute? They even killed those who predicted the coming of the Righteous One. And now you have betrayed and murdered him— you who have received the law that was given through angels but have not obeyed it.” (Acts 7:51-53)

'If a kingdom is divided against itself, it cannot stand. If a house is divided against itself, it cannot stand. And if Satan is divided and rises against himself, he cannot stand; his end has come.' (Mark 3:24-26)

“ is the practice of God’s perfect law (faith) that gives us freedom...” (Jam 1:25)

Our selfish ways imprison us — we cry out to be free;
But if we will obey God’s Word, we’ll find true liberty. (Yoder)

Ah! Passive aggressive.. and... no provenance. There's a continuously missing conclusion to the statement that "the dogs bark but the caravan moves on" It should be that "the dogs bark and the caravan moves on AND the dogs are well fed"

I loved listing to your video reading just now : ))

Thank you!

I presume your response, "the dogs bark but the caravan moves on" was to my Monday, October 22, 2018 1:25:00 AM post, because your comment doesn't seem to be pertinent to any of the other comments.

An Arabic proverb which means people can criticise but it won't change anything.

Truth is not criticism, it is the true essence of reality when all the lies are pealed back. Truth is the breath of life, whereas deceit and lies lead to death.

Christ knew you can't defeat satan by fighting him, you can only defeat satan by overcoming him. All the masters of the world have conveyed this same truth. Christ's appeal was, and still is, an appeal to the individual to rise above the infernal world of ego, where desire rules. This is the only way to free one’s consciousness and overcome satan, which will, in the end, free you.

Christ tried to teach humanity about the ramifications of karma so they would better understand God's cosmic law of harmony, because that which profits a man for a short time in this world more often than not leads to a multitude of lives of intense suffering in the future. Just as Christ is a fisher of men so is the antiChrist, so those who join the antiChrist dominate Man to their own injury (Ecclesiastes 8:9), because those who oppress humanity do not do so for God, as God does not oppress (Job 37:23).

As I see it Christ's mission was about freeing people's consciousness so they could return to the higher dimensions within Creation. Christ did not do what he did to become King, as we see by his refusal to take up satan’s offer to be king of this world. The journey of the Christ is one of harmonising between the two polarities to gain self mastery. This is the 'Middle Path' Buddha spoke of.

What I have said was not in judgement. I walk in the same world as everyone else. I know how terribly hard it is. Like Christ, I am not trying to criticise but merely give people a heads up, just as I would if it were a dark night and the bridge ahead was out. Some could perceive what I am doing as criticising perhaps, but really I am just trying to warn people so they don’t go over the edge.

God made a covenant with Abraham that he would deliver the people, and through Christ Jesus he has. If Man chooses to follow their fellow Man into perdition instead, that is not God’s choice, but Man’s.

Perhaps it would be more accurate to say, the dogs bark and the caravan moves on AND the dogs are well fed with toxic GMO food and fluoridated water to calcify their pineal gland so they can't connect with the Holy Spirit.

I hope your hip is repairing nicely and the pain is becoming more manageable. Thank you for the effort you are making to provide posts to your readers. I note your condition is not effecting the quality of your work. Well done.

Yogananda reading


Visible said...

Dear anonymous, I have no clue as to what you are saying. I have failed at finding context or how The Truth would have a connection to the commentary or what old testament characters have to do with any of it; I am mystified by that as well. I mean no insult here, I really am unable to get at what you are saying. My dogs barking comment had to do with the actual barking and what the translation of the barks might mean, as opposed to the meaning given to that or to anything, given that it's all subjective in the way that people usually only hear what they want to hear and overall, I've no interest in parsing or spelling out what I mean. If it isn't understood in the first place I have little hope it will be later. I am not an intellectual. I do not enjoy argument. People come here and appreciate what is said and it is useful to them. In some cases they do not appreciate it for whatever the reason. I'm fine with either but I'm not going to be motivated in directions when something doesn't feel right about what the words actually conceal. I'll now return to what I was doing and that will be the end to it as no further response will come from me. Hopefully that is fine with everyone cause that's what there is.

Visible said...

I forgot to add that anonymous is not in my immediate circle of associates and whatever the reason for it may be, it does not strike my intuition as beneficent. Contrary to what some people might think, I do have an ability to read between the lines and I know when there is an effort afoot to play me, distract me, or anything else of similar motivation. I'm not defining what is specifically taking place here, only that there is a motivation that has some agenda whatever that may be. I'm not curious in any case. what I regret is the time expended in things like this when I can tell there is no real interest in clarity anyway. That is why I only do it once.

I noticed an error on my part this morning when I saw my name posted alongside Yogananda's. This should not have happened and it was an accident. I have removed all the postings from public thoroughfares and will leave my name off entirely in the future. I apologize for this. It should never have happened. All right... moving right along

Yogananda wrote the Second Coming of Christ: The Resurrection of the Christ Within You and God Talks With Arjuna to reveal the complete harmony and basic oneness of original Christianity as taught by Jesus Christ. He taught that the entire universe is God's cosmic motion picture, and that individuals are merely actors in the divine play who change roles through reincarnation. He taught that mankind's deep suffering is rooted in identifying too closely with one's current role, rather than with the movie's director, or God. He taught Kriya Yoga and other meditation practices to help people achieve that understanding, which he called Self-realisation.

Suffering occurs as a result of immersing one's self in their desires. Satan uses one's ego to convince them they are important because they are a King, but we are all just women and men when stripped of Man's titles. When one identifies too closely with their current role they are ruled by ego, when they identify with God, or more specifically connect with God via the Holy Spirit, true self-realisation occurs. That is why Christ said, 'know thyself.'

How ironic, what I said parallels what Yogananda is saying, yet you have no clue of what I am saying and claim what I have written does not strike your intuition as beneficent. Maybe Yogananda can succeed where I have not. As long as people get to where God wants them, Christ consciousness, I care not which vehicle helps carry them there.

Christ Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me" (John 14:6). The Holy Spirit lead me to the Bible, and many other master's work. It was the Holy Spirit that saved me from the path of destruction. Following Jesus' lead, whilst being lead by Christ, the Holy Spirit, I found the esoteric truths revealed in the Bible to be self evident, but one must have ears that hear and eyes that see not to get lost in the wilderness. I found the Bible highly advantageous because it provides a solid understanding of cosmic law, as well as Man's law, which is a necessary part of one's learning on the path of ascension. It also outlines the dangers and perils to be avoided, so there are many aspects that must be addressed if one is to embark on such a sojourn. Purification of one's temple is paramount before embarking on this journey, otherwise as you approach the holiest of holies you will be burned up in the fire.

I wish you all the best Mr Visible. I don't have many friends in this world because God's work frightens most people away.

John 15:18-25 The World Hates the Disciples

“If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you. Remember what I told you: ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted me, they will persecute you also. If they obeyed my teaching, they will obey yours also.'

God bless you
From one who has no name

Visible - so glad to see you bouncing back from the injury. I second all you're saying about Yogananda. Some time ago you brought him up in a posting that prompted me to get his 2 volume Second Coming of Christ discourses from SRF. I just finished reading it for the second time and it is just terrific and can't recommend it enough. He is an amazing writer who presents the profound in a very accessible way. Like someone else we know. So thanks for turning everyone on to him and the readings.

Thank you very much Visible... I have placed an order for Paramahansa's book! I read Autobiography of a Yogi, thanks to your suggestion as well and cannot thank you enough for passing on such powerful spiritual literature!

3rd installment is wrong link. It is second installment duped.

However, the gate to heaven is “narrow” in the sense of having a particular requirement for entrance—faith in Jesus Christ. Salvation is found only in the Person of Jesus Christ; He is the only way (John 14:6). The “wide” gate is non-exclusive; it allows for human effort and all other of the world’s religions.

Jesus says that narrow gate leads to a “hard” road, one that will take us through hardships and difficult decisions. Following Jesus requires crucifying our flesh (Galatians 2:20; 5:24; Romans 6:2), living by faith (Romans 1:17; 2 Corinthians 5:7; Hebrews 10:38), enduring trials with Christlike patience (James 1:2–3, 12; 1 Peter 1:6), and living a lifestyle separate from the world (James 1:27; Romans 12:1–2).

Thank you LTPTB It has been a bit of an ordeal getting it right. Two more are coming and hopefully I handle those right. I'll try to fix that error.

Visible said...

LTPTB- NO... the sequence is correct as far as they exist on my Youtube site. I think you are referring to a link I put in the comments section of one of the blogs. I'll just go and erase all of those. You can go here where all three are.

Yes, I did mean the link. Sorry I wasn't specific enough, for I didna think of it at the time.

Here is Episode 5 of the Yogananda series-

mistakingly numbered as 6. Some less than benign force is causing some number of errors for me. No doubt it is partly my fault but usually there is not such consistency in error.

Visible said...

A new Smoking Mirrors is up (sorry for not hotlinking)

Love To Push Those Buttons said...

Nope! What is supposed to be number 5 is the link to number 4. Are we bein' hacked?

Ray B. said...

Vis, I just got done reading your latest Smoking Mirrors, where you noted the lack of commentary on the Paramhansa Yogananda offerings. I haven't listened to them yet, but I read “The Autobiography of a Yogi” early in my 'alternate' life. It was quite profound. That, and books by Satya Sai Baba and Babaji (and other entities), were the reason for my first trip to India. You just cannot read about all the Higher Planes and Higher Beings (at least I can't) without a 'draw' to those States or Knowings.

(In my case, I got 'diverted' through my encounters with otherworldly beings during my trips to the British Isles, where I started investigating different Consciousness Levels. So, I ended up partaking in several different consciousness-raising traditions...)

And again, I am glad for your new 'insights' from Mukunda...

Best Wishes,
Ray B.

They are all in proper order at the site and given the degree of difficulty in getting anything useful out, I don't care and I'm not doing anymore.
