Dog Poet Transdimensionalizing.......
“Dogs never bite me, just humans.”
Three things have a powerful effect on us; cosmic delusion, the cosmic dream and all of the things in it that snag and entangle us. These are all generated out of the consciousness that liberates us from them. It is because of the existence of these forces and our relationship to them that accounts for wherever it is that we find ourselves at the moment but... obviously for some who read here, this is not all. These forces are generated, as all forces are, by the same source; good men, bad men, good things and bad things, true sanity and all the countless variations of insanity are all generated out of this same force through intermediaries that color the impact and the impact can be colored in all the ways you know and do not know about. This is not to say that that supreme originator directly intends everything that goes down, or... should we say, 'comes down?' Perhaps the more accurate way of putting it is to say that the supreme originator allows all of these things to occur and the intermediaries, such as they are, their quality and intention is determined by the age they are operational in. We get 4 combinations of darkness and light; light and darkness and each determines the nature and power of the energies that both deceive and correctly inform us. We are presently in the time zone that possesses the greatest amount of darkness in relation to light.
Humanity has wondered and argued about why life is the way that it is. People say that there can be no God because God would not permit some of the things that happen to happen. Somewhere in the Bible it says that God sets both the light and the darkness. In the Lord's prayer it says, “lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil.” This implies that the ineffable is both the tempter and the liberator and gives some element of truth to my claim that the devil is an employee of the almighty.
For me... it is a simple leap of logic to come up with the reasons for why things are the way they are and that would be what you so often see written here; it is all for the purpose of demonstration and it is a movie. For most of us, our attention gets captured by the goings on in the film on the screen. We get caught up in it and forget who we are. In some cases we forgot a really long time ago and we have been spending lifetime after lifetime in pursuit of nonsense, dressed up as something meaningful. Out of these pursuits come all of our trials and torments. I marvel at the resiliency of people who can simply go on and on like this. They risk everything over and over again for nothing. Because we are in a time of darkness greater than light, we are also in a time of the rule of insanity. Insanity looks sane because that is what appearances dictate as so. Sanity looks threatening and also wrong. It looks like an enemy of the state and of course, it might well be. After all, the state is an enemy of the people and... by this time there can be little doubt about that. It's one thing to be a good person. It is another thing to be a good person in the practice and pursuit of truth. Being a good person might give you good standing in your community, however, association with truth can kill that dead. Good is relative. Truth is not. Yeah, sure, we can broach a good argument for relative truth; certain things that are routinely so, no matter where you come up against them. Truth in its essence is something else and truly difficult to define. It can be experienced though.
One of the reasons the wise tend to keep their mouths shut and also not to talk about certain things is that is can get you in trouble. Some of us, less wise than the wise, do not have the more practical inhibitions. In some cases we have been karmically tagged to do this and the reasons for that can be many.
The people caught up in the movie think that the movie is real, when the movie is just a projection on the screen of the mind. The consciousness of the almighty is like the thread that holds together a strand of pearls. We are the pearls and the almighty is the strand. The strand is invisible, just as the almighty is; not visible but... palpable... definitely.
We are not all pearls. Some of us are rhinestones and some of us are rocks. Some of us are stink bugs and some of us are something else; no matter, we are all on a strand somewhere. Here's a helpful tip; the divine resonates and the resonating of the divine affects whatever is on the strand unless... unless whatever is on the strand resists the resonance of the divine and then you become whatever you are determined to be according to the quality and degree of your resistance.
I'm learning something very important. It seems like it is something I already knew but I didn't or... I didn't know it in the manner that I should have known it. It has to do with that 'be here now' that is so fashionable and omnipresent. However (I seem to use that word a lot), like anything we hear too often, it eventually fails to register AND... more importantly, unless we have visceral understanding of something, we do not understand it in any practical fashion. We understand it intellectually. A great many people understand things intellectually but there's not a great deal of real value in it. I compare this to people who are caught up in religious organizations of any stripe, who pray by rote, who chant mechanically, who look at the whole affair as putting in their time, or going through the motions for the payoff of social interplay or hedging their bets with Heaven. Most people do not like to be alone but we are all alone and on some level we know this.
A person can be many different kinds of insincere in many different kinds of situations. The result of that is that they will eventually find themselves in a completely insincere world surrounded by insincere people just like themselves. The one place you cannot be insincere and lack commitment and dedication is in dealing with the almighty and there is no way to conceal this, since the almighty is right there inside your heart and mind at all times.
I mentioned that the ineffable had recently told me that I no longer had to chase after anything, conspire after anything and go through any changes about anything because everything was going to come to me now and all I had to do was be me where I am. Previous to leaving Europe, I was told that there were things intended for me that could not happen where I was and that I had to return to a solitary life and simply await it. The amount of evidence I have had in regard to this happening, in these few short weeks has been impressive, to say the least. As far as the world goes, we can be anyone, depending on the roles needed to acquire what we are playing a role to acquire. If it is the ineffable, we have only to be what we are and want that contact more than anything else. It's a simple affair and other than that, there is only the consideration of the path chosen toward the goal pursued. We want what is most expeditious and effective. For that we must look at the age the pursuit is taking place in. Given that this is the Kali Yuga, once again logic- utilized in respect of the most illogical of forces (Love)- tells us that Bhakti is the most expeditious and effective. Why? In times of darkness, Love generates the greatest light. Love is the most powerful attractive there is AND as far as effective goes; above all things, the ineffable is a lover. The ineffable is a virtual slave to love IF we are a slave to love of the ineffable. Furthermore, as I never tire of saying; those who love much are forgiven much. It's very easy to stray or be drawn off the path in times of darkness. Love will keep you focused.
It's been pointed out here many times that the greater the trials and suffering we are put through, the greater the rewards intended for us. There is a caveat to that and that is when Karma is the reason for it. However (there it is again) generally... generally one is not necessarily in the pursuit of the ineffable when Karma is kicking their ass. Often when one is being put through it, it is because they are a pack-horse for the ineffable. They are carrying others along with them in the slipstream. We are, all of us, a reservoir and an inspiration for each other IF we are. Of course, there are teachers and illuminated souls that are not getting hammered but you can be certain they were getting hammered at another time. We don't pick either the times nor the circumstances for our purpose of demonstration. We 'can pick' the most important feature.
Who is going through the demonstration? Is it you or the ineffable going through it with and for you? If you are truly being yourself, who does that make you? What are you an expression of? What are you an extension of? You are sunlight in extension. You are sunlight frozen in form. What is the essential essence of sunlight? Angels soar around the sun every day. In certain states of consciousness you can see this. Celestial music accompanies this and you can hear it, in certain states of consciousness, unless it is being drowned out by terrestrial noise. All this and so very, very much more is available to those who seek after the ineffable with a greater intensity than what is given to anything else.
You do not reach the ineffable by going to church now and again or giving lip service or using your appearance of a spiritual life for personal gain. The ineffable sees everything and the ineffable knows everything. We do not and that is why we do not understand why the world is the way it is and why the ineffable allows the things that happen to happen. Are these things happening to you? Usually not. Justice is selective. That is one of its primary qualities. You reach the ineffable by being the appropriate hosting vessel and by meeting the criteria that the ineffable demands in order to be there. You reach the ineffable by relying utterly upon the ineffable, which allows the ineffable to shape you, unmake you and make you... or simply remove the dross that covers your illuminated being.
I'll close today with a truth that should heal any broken heart, made so by the loss of one's beloved. All separation is as temporary as the life in which it occurs. Never imagine that you will not see those you loved again. You surely will. Comfort yourself with that and live your life to the fullest. That is what the one you loved wants for you. Do not disappoint the one you love by stressing over the separation or by suffering from the loss. This serves no one. You WILL be reunited. Be joyful with the expectation of that and be the person the one you loved knows you to be. The more you seek the ineffable, the closer you come to everyone and everything you love. In truth, the totality of that is all the ineffable in one permutation or another. Have a wonderful day!
