Dog Poet Transmitting.......
May your noses always be cold and wet.
Today is June 13th. It is also a Friday the 13th and a Honey Moon. As for the astrological side of it, as is usual with so many astrologers there is such a blizzard of associations and intersecting WTF's that no clear picture can occur but which give a wide spectrum of handy info for 20-20 hindsight. I don't know what any of this means but probably hardly anyone else does either.
Here's an interesting take on what many of us already know about the Satanic side of organized religion. I'm going to take exception to this use of the devil's hand signs and yet one more time post the photo of one of India's greatest saints in the last several centuries, RamaKrishna:
I will also bring attention, once again, to photos of me holding my hands in similar fashion:
This occurs in states of heightened awareness, brought about by meditative states or the ingestion of psychedelics. My hands go into moving mudra during the aforementioned states because, for whatever the reason, I had a massive kundalini experience at the age of 21 that has impacted on my entire life and, no doubt, always will.
Let me be brief in the analysis of this consideration; THERE IS ONLY ONE POWER. Both good and evil draw their capacity to perform from the same well. All evil and compromised secret societies have taken everything they know from perverting the teachings and truths of the societies of light. In this Kali Yuga the corruptibility factor for seekers after the light is great and there are many who have fallen under the spell of The Shadow; think of the tale of Saruman and you can understand how powerful secrets came to be stolen from those whose task was and is the protection and preservation of them.
On the other hand, powerful angels watch over the secrets of the light and nothing gets stolen that they are not aware of beforehand. This all happens for (drum roll) the purpose of demonstration. The most important secrets are never in danger of being shanghaied. It should be stated here that it is an impossibility for a corrupt consciousness to comprehend the higher mysteries at any time. Even if they came into possession of them it would do them absolutely no good and there is a good chance they would be incinerated on the spot. At no time are we in any danger if we are not deceived. Because there is no power that can harm us so long as we are sheltered beneath the eternal wings.
You can ask, "why would a deity who purportedly loves us, expose us to such relentless temptations and difficult conditions, given the inherent weakness of human nature?" It is hard to grasp sometimes, while at the same time we can see how we have, each of us, fallen many times, yet we are still here and we still aspire because forgiveness and mercy are always at hand. It seems that the real problem to look out for is getting to the state where one is resistant to the act of seeking forgiveness; where one has convinced oneself that they are right and become deaf to the advice of their better angels. So... it's not like we are set up to fail and then denied any redemption. It's our decision not to seek it. It's up to us if we become stiff necked and proud beyond measure in the extreme paucity of our knowledge. There are only a few ways that we go wrong. Sure, you can point to a multitude of errors and expressions of bad judgment but they all come from just a few points of origin.
I've pointed out that telling line from The Lord's Prayer; "Lead us not into temptation" on several occasions. That should be an eye-opener, but for many there is an automatic snooze factor that kicks in whenever they are faced with some knotty conundrum of a question that puts them outside their comfort zone, or which might require some kind of undesirable change in their nature. This is visibly apparent in Fundieland. It's also apparent in Iconoclastia and Ecclectica. It shows up everywhere that people become convinced they are right to the degree that they no longer rigorously field-strip everything that passes before their mind's eye. This is yet one more example of why, "I don't know" is among the most powerful mantras that there are and probably why it was given to me by The Man on the Beach. There are some others that have deeper and deeper meanings, imports and importance as you go; "Be still and know that I am God", "Cave Dei Videt" (beware, God is watching) and "Leave good footprints". I have to smile when I think that somewhere, someone, for sure is saying, "Right Visible, I don't think that's been the case with you." It's an admonition folks, not a statement of policy; much as I might wish it to be. However... the jury remains out on many things as to motive, meaning and final result. I'm content to leave the summing up in the hands of The Great Summoner.
When we observe the seeming unfairness of existence and the ongoing frustrations so many of us experience, while the worst among us prosper and have boat drinks in the High Tower... it can be trying to say the least. The hardest job any of us is confronted with is to break through the years of enforced negativity that has made its way into the subconscious, where we are often unaware of the influence that it exerts on our every day existence. This is another reason and one of the BIGGEST reasons to insulate your life with spiritual disciplines, especially meditation and prayer and ESPECIALLY to remember that prayer is a conversation when it is at its most effective. After all, if you are going to ask something, should you not expect an answer? When do you not expect an answer? Most likely is it when you are speaking to someone who is deaf (would you do that?) or dead, or non existent (would you do that?). Any of that sounds like an expression of futility and impotence. Would you go through the trouble of planting something that had no hope of breaking out of the ground?
Think of the subconscious as The Earth and that we seed it every day with our thoughts and feelings. We always have done. Ergo, weeding is one of our (should be) chief concerns where we have planted undesirable things. Following that we plant desirable things. It should go without saying that nothing grows that is not watered and exposed to sunlight, except mushrooms and a few other things... maybe and most of them don't see the light of day because they should not see the light of day. I'm not knocking mushrooms and I'm aware of Ginseng (grin).
It doesn't matter how many times we have been wrong. It doesn't matter what crimes we may think ourselves guilty of. The only unforgivable crimes are the ones which bring one to the point where they sneer at redemption because one has then put themselves in that situation; right? Short of that one need only go to the cosmic laundry for whiter whites and brighter colors. One should give up the ghost every night and awaken reborn, imagining themselves reborn in the light of a new day. One should awaken filled with vigor, expectation and promise. This is how it should be. When it is not it means we are being weighed down by that which we have not addressed and we're going nowhere fast until we do. Do not measure the ineffable by your own being. Do not engage in anthropomorphism. Do not construct a God who is only a bigger you. Such a God is not as forgiving as the real ineffable and is lacking in various areas of critical need. We are 'vessels' and 'vassals', nothing more. We are defined by what fills us and by whom we serve and as the song says. "You got to serve somebody." Regardless of how independent you might think yourself to be, you are not. You are in service to something. It is best you decide on who that will be. Become a conscious servant. What do you think the divine is? Is the divine some autocratic bureaucrat sitting in that great hierarchy in the sky? The divine is the greatest servant of them all and a veritable slave to love. Can we do better?
Start today. Start now. Whatever may have gone on before does not need to continue. At all times the light is pouring down. Walk in it and you accomplish that by going about all of your business as if it were the divine who were performing it. This is true in any case because that is the source of all power and the rightness and wrongness of any of it is defined by intention; not forgetting, as has been said by 'someone', "the road to Hell is paved with good intentions" The Master did not say this himself. If like attracts like then good attracts good. That's how I see it.
'Riding with an Angel of Light' will feature on a forthcoming Visible album, sometime in 2014
