"The Destiny of the Reactive Mind is Suicide for the Purpose of Demonstration."

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

There is only one source of conflict in this world that occurs between PEOPLE and themselves; that is The Personality. There are 12 basic personality groups and 36 variants, based on Decanates. It doesn't take all that long before you have met everyone in the world. You have not met them all personally but you have met the prototype. Of course, there are shades of deviation BUT... they are negligible. What complicates the affair is where and when the prototype was born and... that then determines which persona is 'rising' in them (rising sign) AND the emotional filter (the Moon) operating in that time period, the couple and a half of days that it spends in that filter and then... which planets are in which 'houses of operation' and that decides all of the colors of the life; the changes that life will be put through, due to the requirements of KARMA, which determined the where and the when of this BIRTH.

That was as simple and comprehensive as I could make the descriptor for the astrological palette. Think of God as ♫ that Old Master Painter from the faraway hills ♫

It's been said that a wise man rules the stars. What does that mean? It means that whatever the state of the ocean and its waves, whatever the shore is like, the one possessed of wisdom surfs it. He does not resist it. You don't fight the ocean if you want to survive it. Regardless of the severity of the conditions we are put through to satisfy the imperative of KARMA, the situation is NEVER improved by reacting to it or running from it. Whatever your reaction may be, THAT HAS ALREADY BEEN FACTORED INTO THE KARMA! Of course you can't run from it because that also has been factored in.

Rare among us is the one who DANCES WITH ADVERSITY. You cannot be here and be entirely free of adverse circumstances. Common sense, ALSO RARE, should intuit, after a certain amount of exposure to life and its actions and reactions, that life is all about balance gone missing. We are here to find that balance. We are here to surf that wave. We are here to become wise. From 'my perspective' the first requirement of wisdom is to STILL THE REACTIVE MIND and you gain command of anything by studying how it operates. KNOWLEDGE IS POWER.

I put the astrological Cliff Notes presentation; this Astrology for Dummies at the beginning of the post BECAUSE... it is the most all-embracing template I could think of and everyone who comes here has at least a basic awareness of what it is. Think of KARMA as THE FORCE at work in the manifest theater and Astrology as the mechanism it demonstrates through. You do not have to be an astute mathematician to get the principles on display here BECAUSE... we will be dealing with the esoteric aspects, as opposed to the nuts and bolts schematic that ONLY A VERY FEW are capable of interpreting and communicating in the first place. Here is a novel idea! Come to terms with who and what you are, to begin with, THEN... THEN consider a plan of operation!

I have a certain advantage that is not shared by most people anywhere and I wouldn't say this were it not true that practically any of you could be in the same state of awareness IF YOU CHOSE TO BE. I must use analogy to make my case, just as my spiritual betters have been using for thousands of years; I am a fisherman in a boat on the vast Subconscious Sea. Unlike most everyone, I am not proprietary about The Tiller. I have relinquished control of The Tiller through an act of faith and am only a passenger in the boat. The one at The Tiller knows this sea intimately, every particle of it. He knows the location of everything buried beneath the surface and AS SOON AS I SETTLE DOWN, he is disposed to advise me on all things having to do with fishing. How do I SETTLE DOWN? I still the reactive mind.

How do I still the reactive mind, so as not to scare the fish? First I let the reactive mind do whatever it pleases. This allows me to study it. At one time... this mind was my best friend but we grew to be at odds, due to compromises made, due to self-deception, JUST AS IT HAPPENED TO YOU. Arriving at realization is not something new that you discover. It is something old that you will remember. Now... I should point out that there are people about who insist that there is no mind, no nothing really AND... in an absolute sense, this might be true but THEY ARE NOWHERE NEAR THE POINT of understanding the things they parrot that were said by others. It is one thing to pontificate and hold forth on something. It is a world of difference between the visceral apprehension of it and the intellectual egotism that is only able to argue and object. Such people are fools and will remain so for as long as they can bear the pain of their self-deception. If they knew what was what, they would have nothing to say. That they cannot restrain themselves is proof that they do not know and also proof that their reactive mind commands them.

This small group of deluded know-it-alls, appear in regular fashion, whenever any of us discourse on anything. They cannot help themselves and they most certainly can't help you. There are two basic types of individuals who work in this area of enterprise; those who have surrendered their imperious ignorance and those who have not. The former is capable of being informed. The latter is not. This is why I have surrendered The Tiller. If I need to know something, I am told. I am able to be told because I am not filled with preconceived notions that immediately set to argue with what I am told. I have emptied my bucket. Subsequently, the one at The Tiller can recommend to me the proper hooks and bait so that my every fishing expedition will be a success. I did not discover this method. I do not invent the things I say. They are all capabilities and information that I receive through the intuition. ANY OF YOU CAN DO THIS but you must first, STILL THE REACTIVE MIND.

What is the composition of this reactive mind? It is the force of the compendium of your astrological makeup. It is the force of your assigned KARMA, resisting its own best interests and the force of its Liberation. There is the 'force of you at war with the world', via the schematic of your astrological template ...and then there is the force of the one at The Tiller. If it happens that you imagine that you are at The Tiller, well... good luck with that.

When you set out upon the path of liberating yourself from your astrological servitude in the Penitentiary of the Mind and when you are able to disarm your jailer, who is the reactive mind, this does not mean that you are then free of all future conflict, or... rather... let us say the potential for future conflict. You will most certainly 'be in a position' to run afoul of the know-it-alls, religious fundamentalists and other malcontents. You will run afoul of the makers of rules and laws, that are the systematized, official protocols of accepted behavior BUT... BU... BU... BU... BUT, you DO NOT HAVE TO REACT TO THEM. The reactive mind is a truly subtle and demonic force and it stays alive and is fed by your complicity with it. As with all negative occupying forces, like Fear, Doubt, Anger, Hate and the like... THEY MUST BE FED OR THEY WILL DIE.

Freedom from the reactive mind and all of the negative emotions in its arsenal, is not the fruit of a single day's efforts and the time required can vary considerably from person to person. HOWEVER... and THIS IS KEY. When you have absolutely decided that there is no other option but Victory; when you have reached inflexibility on this point, it is no longer an arduous and seemingly endless struggle. Once you have committed and there is no Door #2, no alternative whatsoever, YOU HAVE WON. It is getting to that commitment that is the whole shebang.

Watch what happens every time your mind reacts. Study yourself! You will be amazed at what you see and as you begin to gain command, you will see how ingenious this reactive mind can be BUT... the mind is a tool. Use it. Don't let it use you. The idea is to allow the Indwelling Self to operate UNHINDERED THROUGH YOU. This is accomplished by restraining the personality, which is a construct used by the mind to negotiate existence and all else that it gets up to, some amount of which is detrimental to you. It will become an instrument in the hands of The Self. It will no longer be poorly ruling your life like an incompetent dictator. The Self will be permitted to be The Lord of all it surveys rather than it be you as the victim. This is such a profound divergence from your previous state of bondage. You will no longer be that. You will still look like you but everything else will be dramatically altered.

Don't argue with stupid people. It makes you stupid. Let the frustrated angry and resentful howl. What is it to you? They are howling at themselves. Simply dismiss and ignore them. It is like watching someone wrestling with the invisible man. It is themselves they wrestle with, not you. It is not your affair unless you permit them to drag you into it.

The personalities of the self-indulgent, the sexually perverse and the social justice Nimrods, are merely temporary expressions, of particular insanities, that express themselves for The Purpose of Demonstration. They will burn themselves out. They will eliminate themselves in a true Darwinian fashion. They DO NOT NEED YOUR HELP. Be like pure water, colorless, odorless, pass through this life, mirroring the essential and real in all you encounter. Pay no attention to anything else. Do not let the shortcomings in others call forth the shortcomings in you. STILL THE REACTIVE MIND! Once your reactive mind is firmly under the control of your true self, the reactive mind of EVERYONE ELSE is also under control. Everything is under control. Live it!

Today's Song is;

A dumb young man named Pocketnet grew restless on the net. A fool consumed with wanderlust who really meant no harm. He changed his clothes and shined his Birkenstocks (or Crocs) and combed his pink hair down and his mother cried as he walked out, “don't take your rhetoric to town son, leave your rhetoric at home, Pocketnet, don't take your rhetoric to town.” Well... you can find what's left of him here.

Catering to the reactive mind is one of mine weaknesses, I must admit. When I'm on a mission, IF YOU INTERRUPT ME, I'M GONNA BITE YOUR NOSE OFF!!!!!!! No, not really, but ya gets my drift. I do not deal well with being inconvenienced. It oft results in a temper tantrum, or not nice words at large. Don't see that bein' fixed in this life time. Hence I say I'm 57 goin' on 10 or somethin' to that effect. However, I do realise it is a problem. It's just that I'm a'takin' the path of least resistance, and in analogy, letting the ol' clunker (moi) roll until it dies completely. I'm not fighting myself. I do not deal well with this realm. Never have in this life, and based on what Akashic memories I have from my NDE; I didn't deal too well with it in a lot of other lives on that dayam wheel of reincarnation, either. Hence my view of this realm and everything associated with it, is: FECK OFF, GO TO HELL, AND I SHALL SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE! After all, I'm a bit too old and crotchety to dance in the ruins.

And now for something completely unrelated to this post that I think you and the readers may find kinda interesting regarding Alexa:



It wouldn't play for me on Chrome/google, but it did play for me on Brave/google and Firefox/DuckDuckgo. The answer is 'yes', by the way.

Yes, I loved the post even though it ain't gonna make me change mine errant ways.

Vis, thanks for the 'reactionary' column. Appreciated.

"Dances with Adversity." I like that. Sounds like a good movie could be made from that... (grin)

Vis: "Be like pure water, colorless, odorless, pass through this life, mirroring the essential and real in all you encounter."

Looking back, reducing the held stuff helps one get to that place/stance. It is hard to be non-reactive when one is hair-triggered because of old pain and the emotions 'bound' to that pain. For me, becoming relatively non-reactive has been tied directly to working-down old held stuff. Think of it this way: Every piece of held stuff means that one is Not in the Present in that arena. One is tied to the Past. It even becomes a base for one's personality (hence, one's ego). People will then fight to hold-on to that personality; it is familiar.

There are two deep fears involved:

Who would I be without that personality? (You would be closer to your True Self, but you do not know that yet.)

And a fear due to an intuition: You already know what held stuff is still inside you. You just pretend not to know. That old stuff wants to come-out and be felt-through, so you can lay down that backpack and move into the Present. But intuitively, you also know that feeling-it-through will be painful (not just the negative emotions, but also the pain which caused those emotions). After all, you partially-felt it as it lodged within. So, there is a natural antipathy to the process. (Some held stuff will track-back into past lives, if that is where it originated. Be prepared for non-familiar scenery/relationships and non-familiar sense of self.)

So, becoming non-reactionary is not just 'declaring' it. It is slowly removing the held stuff which is making you reactionary. After that has been done (sufficiently), you are much closer to your True Self and its measured, wise responses...

Best Wishes,
Ray B.

Gratitude for the synoptic journey, most synchronous and helpful!

Reactive mind = personality aka identity, the false identification.
Our persistent error is to believe in our constructed identity as who we are as ALL we are.

Experience, if we are blessed, eventually disabuses us of that limited lease on life, making way for permanent relationship.

Our little self identity is a phantom, generated by interacting with other phantom selves.

In the current madness, dangerous are the hard core phantoms who will kill others to protect their precious delusions!

When we stop dancing with our phantom, we can dance with the ONE worth dancing with!

Or, we learn to dance with both but take our lead from the One, NOT the phantom.

Hey Les and Friends -

LTPTB - NDE, been there done that; except it was not so NEAR as, over the top of the other side - Not once but twice....

Forgive me for disseminating verses of the past. But there has been so many written things said that it is almost impossible to relay something that hasn't already been re-hashed to the nth degree. However, each time I come here and read a new post, it's as if the oracle of consciousness has been looking over my shoulder and taking notes, later to be transcribed into this format of understandable prose, fragrant as sunshine, the color of air and the taste of water. So, when you hear them say "It's just not humanly possible" - They was right.

Wow, the Alt-net is abuzz these days with the purveyors of the Roswell circuit. How many different ways can humans express what is known through the eyes of De-ja vu
? On The Evening TV Commercial News. Let me count the ways.....

Oh Ya, my favorite -
"4000 holes in Blackburn Lancashire, although the holes were rather small, THEY had to count them all, now THEY know how many holes it takes to fill the Royal Albert Hall". Because THEY love to turn you on.........

In the movie "The curious case of Benjamin Button" Twice recited;
"You can be as mad as a mad dog, at the way things went. You could swear and curse the fates, but when it comes to the end, You just have to let go".
This movie had such great dialog. The scene about all the things that had to transpire for Daisy to have been hit by the cab, puts Karma into a grand text.

So many of our mentors have been writing warnings for so long, preparing our understandings, composing musical scores to augment the lyrics, creating memorable live performance for the entertainment, in full coliseums of kids on acid, That when one rides calmly over waves, Stands at the HELM of "The Ship of Fools" surviving the adversity that has been MY LIFE, one deserves a PhD achievement award. ADVERSITY - Holy crap, "If it wasn't for bad luck, I wouldn't have any luck at all"

The best part about all this is; I know my life is nothing unique. each of us at this site, especially the curator herein, displays the days most valued collection of art works in vivid, perpetual living color. The interpretations thereof, for each to put to their own mindset. not withstanding, the telepathic connection between some humans has got to be more than happenstance. Personally, I wish to believe that "The Gathering" is real and "Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed."

InShalla. And the Band plays merrily along.

At ease private, as you were....

To the person who said I would be more effective if I were more succinct. Perhaps your grasp of language will permit you to understand that that is a completely subjective statement. Did the complexity of my address confuse you? As you can see, mention of your comment and its main thrust has been included here and since you are anonymous, no one can say your statement was suppressed since there is no way for anyone to know who you are. I take this opportunity to present my position, hereafter, on insinuations and commentaries lacking PROVENANCE. In the future, when I get comments from unidentifiable sources, where the motivation is suspect, I will simply not post them. In the future, if you are able to take the trouble to make a comment, there MUST be a verifiable name behind them. If you don't care enough to identify yourself... well... you do the math.

Dear Vis,
thanks for that post. I really like the astrological parts when you utter them, cannot agree more with the Karma realizing through one´s astrology.
Being a 3rd decan Leo (as you are, if I remember well), tell me about the reactive mind...
Thanks for this pearl post.

Yep... 3rd decan. It makes me feel good knowing someone got my intended points. I don't write things down if I don't think they are important.

Aggressive truth.

in order to stop the virus, a solution is needed out of this world. No one will probably believe it, but this Q is History. Money which belonged to scientific theories and were stolen from him by the introduction of the PM May surveillance act, his knowledge was stolen and used by Obama in Paris about the climate crisis. For this money, Q would adopt all orphanage children and feed the hungry. In God we trust.

And my frends that how you say abot stupid person is not worth to speak with him.
"To the person who said I would be more effective if I were more succinct. Perhaps your grasp of language will permit you to understand that that is a completely subjective statement." i know you understand me. Take care.

All right! Let's get to the point of the matter. (Grin) karma never looses an address because it is simply creation returning to its maker. You have a unique energy signiture. You can move to the Moon and it will find you there. **note: karma is only a bitch if you are a bitch. Its neither good or bad. Those are judgments we make on our creations.

Meditation 101. (Not for you Mr. Vis. For the newbies)

Do you honestly truly know what Level is? What Balance truly looks like? Stillness? Centered? Often times people ask me, "how do you quite your mind?" I'm going to give you a very simple tool. Let me first ask you one more question. Have you ever hung a picture in your house? Of course you have. When its crooked it looks like shit. So does your thinking when you are not level.

Get a torpedo level. You can buy one at the dollar store for a single dollar. Or you can download the app for FREE.

For 2 minutes every day sit and hold it in your hands level. Where the Bubble is centered. You can spend the other 23 hours and 58 minutes of the day doing whatever you want.

As you sit there, holding the bubble centered, still, balanced and level close your eyes every so often and picture the bubble in your mind. Centered, still, balanced and level. You will notice that it is subtle movements take you off centered, balance, level and it is subtle movements that put you back on center, balanced, level.

As you go throughout your day, circumstances, events, personalities will pull you off center, balance, level. You will be reminded that it is subtle movements that put you mentally, emotionally, spiritually back on center, level, balanced. Stillness gets you there. "Think before you speak." So to speak.

THE WHOLE WORLD is prone to Knee Jerk reactions. that is when you slam your mental, emotional, spiritual level to the other side to adjust. The most profitable thing meditation offers is peace, correct action and direction to avoid obstacles through being centered, balance, level and still.

This is the gps address of the serenity to accept the things we can not change that the Alcoholics pray for and the courage to changes the things we can and the wisdom to know the difference. The first thing we ask for is not wisdom, not acceptance, nor courage. The first thing we ask for is Serenity to--->>> accept to---> couage to -->>> wisdom. We dont ask for wisdom first. Because you have to have serenity coupled with acceptance and courage to find and know it. We dont ask for courage first because you have to have serenity to accept a space in your mind to be teachable.

Sit with a level, 2 minutes a day for 30 days and just be still, centered, balanced and level. Trust me, it will change your whole life.

I know that is really simple. Maybe you are too smart for something as dumb as that. It's the truth though. The level gives you something to focus on besides yourself. Creates an opening for Peace and serenity is to dwell in, to take root and to thrive in your being.

If you dont learn this now??? When the energy waves from space start increasing in intensity, it will drive you mad like the rest of the world. Because that coming and soon. We already signs of it. A guy in LA tried to drive a locomotive into a Hospital Ship, said he was seeing people that weren't there (bleed through reality are already happening) a captain on an Aircraft carrier just got told to step down for sending out a meme saying the Corona virus is bullshit. You have to be really squared away sailor to be put in charge of an Aircraft carrier.

It's coming. Tidal waves of energy. learn Balance now. I know, I know. Om a long winded fucker. Hahahhaah

I'm a I'm a Wo. Jaguar and Frog.

The Myan astrology has 20 signs.

I'm Leo in the Solar zodiac and a Dog in the lunar zodiac. Have had 11 NDE's thus far (I was still born a pronounced dead at birth) miracle baby they said. Lol this is my 12th life. Lol. I have litterally flatlined on every single zodiac. I have proof every thing I say is true. So what sign is my sign? Every time I came back to life? I was born again. Lol

I dont know what all that means. Astrology stuff is not my forte. Hahahaha! I know its something to do with navigation of life. No wonder I'm confused. Meow, bark! Uhem Meow ribbit! Hahahhah! I have the same birthday as Bill clinton, just a different year. I dont give a shit about planets other than the one I'm on. Originally there was only 8 of them. The moon being one according to Chains, globes and root races Blavatsky got from the Himalayan masters.

Hey! I never claimed to be perfect! Hahahahhaha


I dont know everything. I do know one thing and I do it well. I listen, really really good. I have a G.E.D and I ain't afraid to use it! I made it to the 9th grade. Then it dawned on me I didnt like school. It's just pattern matching. They want you to learn their responce to their questions. Get with the Program mister! Spell check! Spell check! Check mate! Cant be having all them creatures of habit running around casting spells without them in check. Can we???!!

Abracadabra is Arimaic for "from what I speak I create."and it's there a man or whom might have a chance of making a difference with their digets on them keys unlocking their mind and turning the tumblers on the locks of the gates we confine ourselves.

"Often times it happens, that we live our lives in chains and never even know we have the keys. " Already Gone, ~The Eagles ~

Pound pound pound on that keyboard space monkey! Hahaha this may be the day the ELEphant realizes it's just rope not a chain wrapped around its leg.

20 years ago,
I used to have this mentor and spiritual teacher/coach. On my birthday card he wrote "fuck you!" I was sooooooo upset! Why would you write that on my birthday card?!! I been working my ass off to learn this spiritual stuff. Like practicing faith and prayer and ritual. I was sooo pissed. He didnt answer and went in my house and proceeded to throw all my spiritual and self help books in the garbage. I was screaming hey man! Stop throwing my books in the garbage! Those are helping me! You are an asshole! You lost your mind???!!! He calmly turned around and said, you know what your problem is??!!!!! You! All these self help books are all about self! IF self was the solution to self?????!!! The world would live in perfect peace! So Fuck you! It ain't all about you! The solution to you is helping others not MORE of YOU!

I was blown away! He was right!!!!! If David Wilcocks was a genius and a genuine guru???!! It wouldnt matter if he was Edgar Cayce re-incarnated. Now would it?? That is one of the reasons for a long long time I used the symbol 0 instead of my name.

Because only the Ineffable owns the Patten on Wisdom. It will cost you everything you own but it's free. It's not for sale. Anyone selling it is a chump for their own line of shit.

I gotta go see about some stuff. If I'm not back for a while again Vis? You know where to find me. Ladys and Gentlemen ,I bid you adue.

As with tradition??? I expecta hearty "Fuck you!" As I leave. Because that is more meaningful than good bye. Right sized and proper mentality. Catch ya on the flipside.


Visible said...

Outstanding and much appreciated!!! Putting things in easy to understand terms is one of the basic keys to what you say having an effect as opposed to confusing the reader. There are a few others... NEVER take credit for anything and that is not just about being humble. It is about accuracy and accuracy is one of the most underrated of tools' or is it something you accomplish by using the right tool for the job? Don't argue! Listening is remarkable. Words could never say because words don't go there and when you get there, words aren't what you are listening to.

If what is real knows that you are really looking for it, it will find you.
