For Those who Believe, Some Direct Evidence of what Lies Beyond and Within.

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

(I was not going to write a post today. I had intended to write, perhaps only one or two in the next few weeks ...because I am presently concluding the coming book about Practicing the Presence of God and I have found, through experience, that unless I give a project my complete attention for the necessary time span, it can take significantly longer to be finished than is necessary. My last novel took nearly ten years longer to complete than was needed because I kept doing other things. However... today will be an exception to my present intentions because of something that transpired yesterday. I have been reading “The Autobiography of a Yogi” out loud to my friend, when we are driving in the car any distance beyond to the supermarket and back. Yesterday I was reading Chapter 43...”The Resurrection of Sri Yukteswar” which begins on page 456, in case all the other cues fail. Despite even that, I am giving a link in the post to that Chapter, which you can read when you are moved to do so.)


(it takes a couple of minutes to load, so give it time.)

Greetings, dear friends. Most come to this site; specifically this site, as apart from the other blogs associated with me because... (though there are exceptions now and again) it deals with God, The Ineffable, The Divine, The Incomprehensible Everlasting, Jesus Christ, Lord Krishna, Lord Ganapati, Amitabha Buddha, The Man on the Beach, Babaji, Lahiri Mahasaya and others. I don't include pictures of some mentioned, or the others because I don't have any of them in actuality and versions and variations of them in imagination and illuminated artistic and spiritual renderings (such as the one of Babaji), can be found in multiples, with little difficulty by any interested soul.

I had read “Autobiography of a Yogi” about 50 years ago and I seem to remember having read it a second time also but I can't remember when that was. I am now reading it out loud. This is something I do with books I love, such as “The Lord of the Rings”, “The Once and Future King”, “The Way to the Kingdom”; there are a few others and I give these live readings out as a Christmas or birthday gifts to people I love, provided they can hold still long enough. I'm careful about who I give such a gift to. If I read a book to someone, it must be important to me and and possess a spiritual character.

I have no memory of having read Chapter 43 of Yogananda's book, though I know I must have read it. I remembered reading the chapters about Babaji and many of the others but Chapter 43 appeared like something totally new to me and has left me with such a fever of spiritual affirmation and aspiration that I cannot put it into words.

As I read this chapter, I was transfixed by the tale being told by Sri Yukteswar. I thrilled and marveled at Yogananda's entreaties (and found myself echoing them) that he continue to talk about the nature of the higher realms of being that await every determined soul, with the faith and certitude to keep on keeping on. WOW!!! One of the reasons that the chapter impacted upon me with such force is because there is no doubt whatsoever in my mind that it is all true; none at all. For those who may find Yukteswar's ability to materialize and dematerialize his physical form at will; not to mention all the other powers and abilities of a realized yogi, it's not in my job description to convince anyone; the endless reach of existence will take care of that. Whether one wishes to take the direct route, or an interminable meandering course, is a personal affair.

To those without the benefit of supernatural experiences, or who are hampered by doubt, or... as is often the case in times of material darkness, do not believe in a divine being, a celestial hierarchy, eternal life, reincarnation or many another spiritual feature, I feel a deep and keen sorrow. Still, I know that every soul will find themselves in their version of being on The Road to Damascus at some point.

In some cases, this may involve a very, very long time and many, many lives and degrees of suffering that I am incapable of articulating. One of the most ludicrous statements I have ever heard is, “Well, (or 'what the Hell') you only live once.” How is it that they can know this, when they don't know it but find the alternative ridiculous or impossible, when they don't know that either? How is it that they can believe the one but scoff at the other, when they have no real information about either? How is it that some can believe in The Devil, yet not believe in God? I am, by turns, both amused and saddened by what people have convinced themselves is true. Of course, there are many things of which I am ignorant ...but as far as the existence of God goes, in that case, I must color myself informed. I have direct and first hand experience of this and these days, I have experiences of it through each and every day.

I have no desire to argue with anyone about it. I do not care if one thinks me mad or misinformed. I have only, ever, had to convince myself about anything. I KNOW that eventually every soul will be reunited with the everlasting ineffable. God is not complete without all of his parts. In my case, I have accomplished, what is to me, the greatest achievement that there is. I am content with this and care not a wit what anyone thinks about it. As I said, “I have only, ever, had to convince myself.” I will further add that I am rigorous in proving out what is true before I believe to be true. I am an eternal, lives long member of the 'trust but verify' brotherhood. I have been exceedingly fortunate that God went to such great lengths to convince me of his presence. How I could possibly feel more honored... I can't imagine and why he even considered me for this honor, still baffles me.
If you fail to be thrilled and irrevocably moved by what is contained in this chapter, I am sorry for you. What wonders are contained therein! I've had brief glimpses of similar things and places, now and again; all too brief but... what a joy! What a beautiful thought it is to me to know that the day will come when I shall be in a place like Hiranyaloka!!!

Some of you, I am sure, are familiar with Sri Bhaktivedanta's “Easy Journey to Other Planets.” If I remember correctly, it is about how one can travel to the various lokas through a persistent and determined practice of the Maha-mantra. Although I am referencing the Krishna Consciousness organization founded by Sri Bhaktivedanta, I have no affiliation with it and due to tales told to me by members I knew long ago and due to my having read, “Monkey on a Stick”, I've kept my distance. Every experience I have had with 'just about' every ashram, or presumed spiritual organization, with very few exceptions, has resulted in disappointment. This is not to cast any aspersion on Sri Bhaktivedanta (he was the definite article), or the power that can be generated by chanting the Maha Mantra. I am here to say that it is possible to travel to all kinds of places, in this life or afterwards, through the performance of spiritual disciplines and these are to be found in every legitimate tradition. One should choose a path that appeals to and works for them and spend as little time as possible criticizing the alternatives. Doing so is a definite hindrance to spiritual progress and compelling evidence of spiritual immaturity. This can prove unfortunate and result in stagnation.

When I wrote about political and cultural conditions, I had a large readership ...and so long as I kept my more important metaphysical interests to a low volume, with short appearances of spiritual things, all was well with those who promoted my work. Once I realized that it was far more important to me to speak on spiritual matters and only tangentially to mention the political and cultural states of affairs, I very quickly fell out of favor with the materialists that found such things abhorrent. My readership dwindled to a core group of visitors and I was generally out of favor and have remained so to this day. That's all perfectly fine with me. I'm not interested in being involved in popularity contests, or risking my relationship with the truly powerful, in order to cater to those who only imagine themselves to be possessed of power. I realize that they don't know any better and like all of us, will find out what is what and what is not, at some point.

It's time for me to bring this posting to a close and hope that some of you have found useful information here. May the divine being have mercy on you and hopefully, sooner, rather than later, reveal to you your true nature and confer upon you that greatest of gifts; self realization.

♫ All the things that I Wanted ♫

Froggie went a Courting and He did go, to The Land of Snakes for The Magic Show.

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

Each day I observe the subtle and incremental changes of manifest life- expressed in appearances. I observe the impact of the shape shifters and the mind controllers, by the degrees of reaction and levels of submission of the public at large. There is a common theme that exists in the minds of the populace, as far as the forces of social change are concerned. People in general are disposed to go along with the majority sway on issues, which are understood differently by three basic camps. We could use the political demographics of Republicans, Democrats and Independents. The last of these is larger than once it was but all of them are under the control of cabals whose intentions are inimical to that portion of the public under their sway.

The first of these usually involves a conservative mindset. The second, a liberal mindset and the last is composed of people who believe they are making up their own minds but that is normally not the case and we can see this considering what has been happening to Normal over recent decades. Each of them contains subsets of all the others as well. The conservatives can be counted in a majority that increases as it moves to the middle of the country and the liberals increase the closer their proximity is to one of the two oceans. You could also say that the percentage of liberals is greater, the higher the density of the population is in urban locations. The bigger the city the more of them there are.

Someone once said (paraphrased to be less cumbersome) “If a man is not a liberal when he is young, he has no heart. If he is not a conservative when he is old he has no brains.” This has been wrongly attributed to Winston Churchill (quite a few quotes are). As a matter of fact, Churchill was a conservative when young and a member of the Liberal Party later on. The truth is that Churchill was neither of these. If there were an image that correctly defined him, it would be a man with his finger held aloft to read the wind. Churchill would more correctly be defined as an opportunist. Like many of his ilk, History has treated him far better than he deserved as he did a lot of rotten things.

One thing we can count on as being true is that “history is bunk”. Henry Ford said that. Perhaps this should motivate a change in another oft used phrase; “those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.” (that's the original wording). It should probably now be written as, “those who do not know history is bunk are condemned to believe it.”

Another great mind said, “there are lies, there are damned lies and there are statistics.” That we see in demonstration every day, when we hear or read the pronouncement of pollsters and other distorters of reality on things like gay marriage, the border wall and pretty much every hot button issue going. These days, we are told (look it up) that most of the population supports gay marriage and no doubt gender switching and every aberration going. If they don't believe it today, they will believe it tomorrow, once it has sunk in that, according to the pollsters, they already do. We are being told that most Americans do not support the border wall. That's bullshit, as are all the rest of the polls that generally cherry pick their respondents from the demographics that support the numbers they present you with.

Materialism will cause insanity as it progresses. It also causes stupidity and all manner of other unfortunate states of being. This can be easily observed by anyone not under the thrall of it. People being stupid- and especially becoming more stupid, is a windfall to the politicians and the moneyed class that own them. It is inarguably true that the stupider you are the easier you are led and misled. There is a reason that the Khmer Rouge sought to kill every educated person in Cambodia and that is only one of the locations this happened in.

An army of angry people, who are angry because they cannot convince themselves (not really) that their way of living is acceptable to the cosmos, are being gathered together under several banners to be the foot-soldiers in a coming war against all that is good and noble and true. Antifa is just the tip of the iceberg. This is a redux of what took place during the French Revolution and any informed astrologer can show you the parallels between there then and here now.

Embracing the call of your appetites and desires, you become vulnerable to the forces of chaos and confusion to an increasing degree; which can be measured by the distance you have separated yourself from yourself. The more people do not know who they are, the more susceptible they are to being defined by others. War is not just guns and bombs and bodies tumbling in space. War is also a conflict of ideals and lifestyles and the greater the press of materialism, the more intense is the demand by crazy people to be given license to do whatever they please. Chaos and Confusion are optimum conditions for those motivated to make a profit from them.

Materialism is also applied Satanism and the further it goes the more manifest that entity becomes. The Devil is given physical form by particular donations of essence given by those engaged in conscious and unconscious devotion to 'it'.

For those of us not inclined to travel in this direction, we need have no concern. Whom we serve is ALWAYS more powerful than The Prince of Darkness. When one has been gifted an awareness of 'the indwelling', one lives in a state that is impervious to infernal force. “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.”

Also... “If God be for us, who can be against us?” When we are in a condition of Fear, we imagine a greater power in what is unreal... we can even give substance to it so that, “what we fear has come upon us.” It is similar to blocking the light in such a way that the shadow cast appears far greater than that which is causing it. When one relies on temporal things, one should realize that they contain no saving grace. It is a terrible thing to be naked and powerless in the wrong place at the wrong time. Conditions and circumstances can change in the wink of an eye and... no doubt will at some point.

If what you rely on is changeless, then the ever changing temporary can have no effect on you. The whole world might go mad but of what concern is that to you if you are in the cloister of sanity? It should be our beloved vocation to bring the truth of the affair to everyone we encounter; even when our gospel is silent, this does not mean our thoughts and the sweet symphony of our hearts is also. If one is resident in the timeless serenity of the everlasting and even if one is alone in a cave at a far reach, their resonance will permeate to the ends of the Earth if maintained.

The degree to which common life has gone out of balance is much greater than may appear to a casual perspective and the response of archetypal force to this imbalance is closer than it may seem. The composition of the appearances of the world is woven out of the product of smoke and mirrors. The world is a magic show.

When you see sleight of hand and other variations of smoke and mirrors, tricks of light and darkness, misdirection and the like...

...consider the world in which you live; it is perhaps the biggest magic act of all times and over the centuries there have emerged a number of practitioners of light and dark intention and they are still at it. Some of them have been around for a good long time. I would not call Babaji a magician. He is a great deal more than that.

We have become accustomed to the world of the senses to the degree that our sensory perceptions have overpowered the potential performance of our spiritual senses but... they are waiting there, waiting to be exercised by those with the dedication and intention required to awaken them. There are those who will tell you that certain authors are evil or in league with The Devil. Usually these people have read something somewhere and because they were already inclined to believe the worst about anybody and everybody, it didn't take much. I'll say it again, the devil is the way the wicked see God.

I have achieved what I was after. I am satisfied with the results of my efforts, though not nearly as much as I am going to be. If there are others who were as reckless and out of control as I have sometimes been, likely they are no longer here. Each of us has destinies, often set in motion at times some distance prior to the moment we find ourselves in. This destiny can be altered at any time that one musters the force necessary to accomplish this and... lacking possession of it themselves, can often find a source to borrow the necessary force from.

Just as one can get a loan from a temporal bank, given the necessary equity, one can also acquire a loan from a spiritual bank with the necessary equity as well. That equity is often composed of the promise of following efforts or some form of devotion and can be accessed by anyone with the requisite Faith, Certitude and Determination. Personally I am convinced of this and have 'many reasons' to believe it to be true. “There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.”

The Love Within is the Same Love Within, the Triangle Child of the Same Author.

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

Walking into Safeway yesterday, I saw they had made the FREE FLU SHOTS sign bigger. If you call your medical provider, you'll hear a message that tells you, you can get your flu shot there. I got a link this morning telling me that they were giving out flu shots at the Golden Globes and also 'taking shots' at people who didn't want them. Telling them to put a napkin on their head or somesuch.

I didn't watch the Golden Turds. Celebrations of mediocrity do not energize me.

Is there a flu epidemic taking place? Not that I know of. So what's up? One thing is that people are dying after getting flu shots. There's an argument being made that flu shots can give you the flu. Hmmm... Short and Sweet; the Deep State Lizards and self styled elite are- and have been- hung up on their usual Malthusian Enthusiasms, population control... Georgia Guidestones and la dat.

As has been mentioned often, the main byproduct of Materialism is Insanity, another major byproduct is psychopathy. The Lizard Elite are predominantly psycho-sociopaths and where they are not, they are genuflecting sycophants, with 'entrance in the rear' tattooed on their foreheads but you can only seen it with infrared.

We like to talk from a, hopefully, inspired perspective about the glorious splendor of the ineffable and wax lyrical in a “how do I love thee? Let me count the ways” manner. In order to balance that and not develop too much of a New Age Swish, we counter it with a- 'now and then', hard nosed, occasionally scatological, wit infused diatribe= “Let them know you are human”, as per Les Paul talking to Chet Atkins, about an album they had just finished. Please understand this behavior is intentional. Nothing would please me more than to be solid and immovably centered on the divine at all times. We'll get there when we get there. On the way, sometimes... entertainment and humor are a welcome purpose of demonstration mode. I hope these flights into WTF do not annoy or shock the listener here and there. We really would like to remain, 'just folks' and relentlessly avoid self-aggrandizement and doing the tango while juggling remarkable objects. I like it when one can meet another eye to eye, heart to heart, with the silent and unshakable recognition of the same indwelling in each of us. Granted; on the stairway into ever more refulgent and beautiful eternal light, we are, now and again, on different staircases, different steps... but... the Love within is the same love within, the triangle child of the same author.

Please do not imagine that visible is getting all Egyptian on you. Archetypes, symbols, al-gore rhythms and timeless mathematical intricacies, all proceed like stepping stones from the white light of the ineffable, which then passes through the prism into the radiant colors of manifestation; some before and some after... some as potential and some as a dancing goddess, raised up over a prone and motionless Shiva.

There is a serious problem that SHOULD be uppermost (following recognition of the divine as supreme above all things and...) that is... things are not what they seem. Life might be, more or less, 'dump da da da da dump da da da da... going on around you and, yeah... that doesn't look so good and that is ridiculous and so on but... even lurching down the hall and bouncing off a wall here and there, it seems to manage to find its way to the couch where it collapses and dreams its way off to the next morning. It keeps on keeping on but... one should never lose sight of what is out of sight and what its intentions are. God is not the only one who is both visible and invisible. Of course... to those whose vision is connected to ageless wisdom, evil is, often enough, something we just don't understand yet; like fire and lightning used to be. The important truth is that the ineffable is ALWAYS in control and if you have harmonized, aligned with and are resonating with the ineffable, you share that space of no worries, mate. Otherwise there is the cycle of manifest destiny, as it occurs to the temporary things we have elevated to a level of undeserved importance. We've used the image of a massive ship, sinking in the ocean and pointed out that you need to be a good distance, in the water, from that ship to avoid being sucked into the depths.

Unfortunately, there are more, rather than less of the public, who dream of strolling the deck on fair seas. Purpose of Demonstration can have a number of meanings, not all of them desirable. Sooner or later, the divine will have come to the point of maximum impact potential and will either initiate a sequence of dominoes, or toreador the matter through a sequence of events to materialize a teaching moment and for your best results... it really depends on where you are standing and what you are standing on. Along the lines of 'form is function' are considerations like 'position is perspective' and... one of my favorites, by someone else, “eternal vigilance is the price of liberty.”

It is a powerful act for a person to STOP at a point and make an objective assessment of where they are and where they are (think they are) headed.

If you, like some of us do... drop in several times... or many times a day and speak to the ineffable, reminding yourself and the ineffable of the value of the ineffable in your life, an immeasurable asset is made a permanent fixture in your portfolio. What I am telling you is inarguably true and anyone performing this understands what is being said. You are the result of what you have put the majority of your time and attention, affection and love into. “Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.”

Gather together all of your features and factors and manifest a composite snapshot in your mind and lay it all as an offering on the altar of the incomprehensible and indefinable ineffable. Acknowledge the paucity of your features and factors and recognize the measureless and priceless value of implementing the Greatest Commandment in all your coming and going and 'upon my soul', I guarantee you will not regret it. Realize that no matter what you think you know, you know very little and the divine knows everything. Imprint on your consciousness FIRST that the Divine is REAL. You may not know what the Divine is but you can know that God IS. From that, all things are possible and to the extent that you Love the ineffable with all your heart, with all your soul, all your strength and with all your mind (and love your neighbor as yourself= because in the ultimate and absolute sense, your neighbor is yourself) then you are in for surprise after surprise and your life will flower into the endless reach of eternal splendor, as the sunlight of the everlasting shines upon and from you for now and forever, Amen.

It is no accident that my most powerful drive is to celebrate, love and share my awareness of God at every opportunity. An electric thrilling runs through me now and again, more and more so as time passes, when I think of, speak and dance and sing with the ineffable. The divine is the living centerpiece of my life. Sure, I've made more mistakes than I remember. I have, occasionally, behaved in an outrageous and inexplicable manner and I have assuredly regretted more than one of those occasions. Life continued and I no longer behave in that fashion. My present and future acts of the outrageous and inexplicable are ALL an internal matter now. I have learned. How did this happen? I loved God. Leaping with abandon in intoxicated imagination... silent and serene... triumphant in consciousness and shattered by the force of my ignorance, I have loved God and that Love was the vehicle of transport that has brought me to this place; Amazing Grace! Thank you my Lord for your compassion, your mercy, your understanding and your love!!! May every soul know some part of how I feel with the indwelling, shimmering radiance, of the indwelling within.

This is freely given by the source of all power and life. How sad that so few avail themselves of this. It is right there to be had! I WILL devote myself to the never ending, unfolding joy of God in every moment I can remember to do so. There must be a reason for this. Try it out and I believe it will prove self explanatory.

Words will never do it but... we must needs try. What we think of, speak about and act in respect or disrespect of, defines us, Make God the be all and end all of your existence and he/she/it will most certainly become that. This is the single most marvelous opportunity that there will ever be; amare deum et perfectum est fatum.

Blessings upon you one and all!
