Dog Poet Transmitting.......
May your noses always be cold and wet.
Oh well... There are so many things to talk about. No doubt there are many, many more that are not worth talking about. We cover both sides of that equation here (grin). This is why we say, “take what you find useful and ignore the rest”. We sit down here most days and never have anything driving us in a grimacing fury to express. Things just flood out for whatever the reason and we have come to be comfortable with that.
Most of the time, we note the ridiculous and unreasonable, as well as the horrific and intolerable. We like to segue, following that, into ways of being and possible solutions, as well as positive mind sets and routes of passage up, in, around and out of the mazes and snares of this entangling world.
We are grateful here for our general lack of worldly success. The most powerful and positive result of that is that we don’t have to concern ourselves with how powerful backers might take what we say. We don’t have to concern ourselves with what an employer might say. We don’t have to concern ourselves with approbation or censure from friends and family because we don’t have friends and family in the same way that most people do. Our family is only and ever... that which shares with us a familial relationship to those things we believe in. Our friends are only those who are friends of our own friends in the invisible sphere. What we mean by that is that our friends are led and inspired by forces much like our own, regardless of what face they put on it and regardless of what belief system they express it through. We do not base our friendships on pedestrian similarities of material taste and preference. You can be abandoned by anyone at any time. This is a treacherous world and anyone seeking a higher plane of residence can and should anticipate the certainty of betrayal and slander at any point.
Here is the kind of thing that happens to you when you are owned by the economic interests that you depend on and the fame profile that grants you such ease and sycophancy in your every move from the Percale sheet of morning to the winding sheets and stretch limos of another kind of mourning. You take your talking points from the people who create the mischief in the first place and when you, like all the rest of the poseurs you associate with, travel around on public relations tours to places like the Sudan, without a clue as to what is going on there and WHO is actually RESPONSIBLE for what is going on well... what can I say?
The world of the moment in the doomed materialism of the west is controlled by managed insanities of loathsome characters spouting cultural marxisms for the purpose of personal profit. Of course, that sort of thing is trumpeted by the press which is owned by the people pushing and celebrating these tiny demographic with the destruction of a functioning society in mind. Then they have it written up by people from the same area of expertise; lifestyle wise. This kind of social climate makes is possible for things like this to go on elsewhere now you add both of those together and you get things like this.
In the last posting, I was talking about denial and not wanting to know. What I did not talk about was the pain and deep insecurity that these create. When you are not true to yourself, something inside you knows; SOMETHING INSIDE YOU KNOWS! You wind up at war with yourself and that deep channel, through which atavistic ...and others fears flow, begins to vibrate with the sound of something rushing through.
Fear displaces love; love displaces fear. This is all you need to know and the reason that I STRESS that one adopts a Bhakti perspective in their devotional life. If you are a Christian, then adore Christ and seek to emulate him. If you are a Muslim you adapt your Bhakti to that and so on and so on for any faith that may be the one that appeals to you. As visible never tires of saying and of which he is a living example; ‘those who love much are forgiven much’. I might add that those who love much are led often toward that which they love. Love is MAGNETIC. It attracts you to itself. Let us here also state that there are many things that go under the common (accent of the word, ‘common’) definition of Love. This explains star crossed lovers (although Karma certainly plays a part). It explains how you can love someone so much and then come to hate them; hate is love suppressed. You MUST seek a higher love.
As love ascends up the ladder of variable permutations it becomes ever more refined and expansive. The highest expression of love is sacrifice and that is why Christ came in the age of Pisces. The cosmos IS choreographed at that level. It is. :Love in the age of Kali Yuga... heh heh, I just found the title for the follow up to Spiritual Survival on the Temporal Plane. The critically important reason that one should adopt a Bhakti form of practice is due to the age we are in. The force of Kali Yuga... and by extension, the force of Materialism, is powerful. You can be an excellent swimmer but you get into the wrong kind of waves and look out. We all need a swimming coach in these perilous times, as much to tell us how to swim, as where to swim and... no less importantly, when to go into the water at all.
I have had moments of higher love. It can express itself as a keening rapture that is simultaneously, self contained and giving itself away at the same time. You cannot exhaust the cosmic reservoir of love. The more you take, the more you can access BECAUSE, as you dispense Love... love increases your capacity to express it. BECAUSE all Love wants to do is love more AND here is an amazing cosmic truth. Consider the path of knowledge, of Jnana Yoga and by comparison with Bhakti Yoga. If you follow the path of knowledge and the luminous awareness of all things, you will still have to come back here and follow the path of Love, whereas, if you follow Bhakti, all knowledge and whatever else is useful and valuable is “added unto you”. You get all of is as accessories to love. How marvelous is that?
This is the reason that I hammer on about how ridiculous and embarrassingly obvious (if you have Love) the materializations of the world are at this time. It is why I am compelled to ration out doses of objective criticism concerning it... so that I can offset it with what you have here before you today. Love will untangle every snare. Love will take you past, up and around obstacles wherever they may be. Love is far seeing. Love knows the road up ahead. Love is precognitive and one of the fruits of love is Wisdom and another is Understanding. When one is accompanied, on either side, by these twin companions, not much can go wrong. We see things go wrong all the time, in the world and in our respective lives, simply because of the intense presence of Materialism. You come up against it daily; when driving your car, while negotiating your way through the blizzard of expenses in this ‘pay as you go’ culture but it is more than that. It is also the worry of ‘pay later’ convenience, which is one of the chains that bind. Love sees through all that nonsense and just cruises through. Because love fills your life, everything is manageable if not downright pleasant. This is the essence of Tantra; not all of that other complexity and once again; if you have the love, the rest comes automatically AND as has been said, “Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither has it entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.”
You get the complete package with love and what is more impressive is that you don’t have to worry about the details because love takes care of those as well. Love is the ultimate multifunction. Mind... the love has to be at a high level to perform at a high level so... prime the pump and also exercise it through the performance medium. We are in denial; the majority of us. We are possessed by a cognitive disconnect; the majority of us. We do not realize what an operational, functional, comprehensive and joy filled excursion it becomes to ride on the ineffable’s love bus. It, quite simply, gets better and better ♫it’s getting better all the time...♫ It gets better and better, as you progress, until it goes past anything you ever imagined and which can no way, no how, be duplicated in even the most sumptuous offerings of material nature, all of which are temporary, no matter what. Love is not temporary. Love is eternal.
So... on this Christmas season which is geared to the solstice, in all of its ancient meaning, we celebrate the birth of the light. Most profoundly, that birth of the light expresses itself within us and consumes all of our darkness. Darkness is turned into light; on what may be a simile to that effect, according to visible and his rules of usage (grin), in scripture it says, “be not deceived, even the devil is transformed into an angel of light at the given moment”. Fundies don’t like that so they say that just means he looks like an angel to deceive you but... according to me, even the devil works for god; his wonders to perform. Let us close with, “love conquers all.”
Maybe not be a radio broadcast this week and probably not next week as I will be on the move.
