Outside of the Sheltering Wings of the Almighty God there is Only Suffering

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

Well... it looks like Planet Nibiru is on its way again and the world is going to end this month. That's kind of a drag because I was looking forward to this summer; hanging out at the beach, doing my version of Raisin in the Sun. That's not a Stevie Wonder tune by the way. Speaking of Stevie Wonder tunes, ever since I posted that article that included those Stevie Wonder videos, I can't get his songs out of my head and it is worse than you might think. They are appearing in my dreams. The full songs play on the subconscious ethers of my dream state. I wake up with them playing in my head. I don't know what the meaning of this is but at least it is Stevie Wonder and not Barry Sweet and Low.

Where was I? Right, Nibiru. Well... expert astronomers are saying that this planet is on its way and we are screwed and... to quote me, “not in the way that I wanted to be, with sweet fruits and champagne but more like the Christians and the lions with lots of excruciating pain.” My problem with this is that probably not a single one of you is preparing for this. I recognize that most of us do not have a VIP pass to those underground luxury low rise condos; seriously low rise, since they are going in the opposite direction and behaving like David Rockefeller's dick, unless there is the appearance of a young boy in a communion suit to sacrifice on the altar to Satan. Then all bets are off.

Jesus, Visible (thank god I put a comma there) this doesn't sound very spiritual so far. Well, it's just one of those things; happens now and again and maybe the saving grace of that is that Nibiru is probably spiritual, even though it is a manifest expression but surely there have been manifest expressions that have been spiritual, like Jesus Christ, not Jesus Visible, which, as far as I know, does not exist but might be a good name for a Folk Rock group, if I can ever get the band back together. The thing is that everyone else is probably geriatric by now, except for me; that is a positive for arrested development and in my case, both arrested and incarcerated. You'd think as bad as my condition in that regard is that they would have sent me to a youth facility but... I digress.

Nibiru... something... something. It's on the tip of my tongue but I can't remember what it is. Some massive planet is coming; ten times the size of Earth and it comes every 27 million years or so, which for me is a long time but somehow they know about this; must be algorithms or something and Google would know about that but Google is silent on the matter, except when it isn't but it is all chatter isn't it? As much as it annoys me when people quote scripture, cause of that self righteousness virus thing, I approve of and enjoy scripture because it confirms things that I believe to be true and one of the lines I like is that “But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only.” I think I am going to go with that for the moment; given that there is only now and ever will be.

It makes me smile when people talk about God as if they know what he wants and what he will do. I think I will create some scripture; no one knoweth the Nature of God, for that is sealed up in mystery and defined only in the vanities of a presuming mind. The Lord is neither good nor evil but some measure of awareness well beyond the barking of dogs, walking on their hind legs for a time and performing tricks for an audience of laughter.

Nibiru and whatever other doomsday scenarios that are birthed of the angst of this troubled age are of no consequence to me. Come they might, or not but my personal ability is not sufficient to a control of such events. I have enough on my mind simply seeking to control myself. It is the most difficult thing in the world, given that we are meant to surrender to achieve it in the first place. I'm not Abraham wrestling with angels. I don't wrestle with angels, given that they are direct extensions of the ineffable.

I figure we can put a couple backpacks together (should this prove real) and head for the Luray Caverns in Virginia but... you know they would probably close them, saying they are not safe, because above ground is the much better option or some form of bureaucratic nonsense or... they are already secreted there with their more deserving relatives.

Like another bit of scripture says; “for whosoever shall desire to save his life shall lose it, but whosoever shall lose his life for my sake, he shall save it.” Amen. The truth of the matter is that if the ineffable wants you saved, he'll do it. He can whisk you into the upper atmospheres without a whole lot of thought involved. The ineffable can do anything that can be imagined and one should not forget this, otherwise one might be left to their own devices.

There is this feature where if you have the desire to be independent -that can happen- if only to prove certain enduring truths about walking through the valley of the shadow of death on your own. Many, many times a day people experience what it is like to be on their own or to believe they are. One of the most powerful lessons that attend life is that at some point one must discover that there is a divine being and whatever experiences are necessary to take one to that understanding will occur and continue to occur until one reaches this understanding. All our arguments and protestations are in vain because there most certainly is a divine being and life... lifetimes are nothing more than a game of hide and seek. Outside of the sheltering wings of the almighty god there is only suffering. It might seem for a time that there are those who cruise along in some fantasy existence of their own device but it is only one more soul bound for self discovery and there is a vast distance between actively seeking the indwelling divine and having that information brought to your attention in extremity.

As it so happens, those of us in search of the divine also suffer as well but that suffering is just money in the bank. This is how I see it. One might say that all suffering achieves something. I am not sure of that. I think some suffering is pointless but suffering experienced in the pursuit of the ineffable is never pointless. It is currency. It is an investment. There are all kinds of investment banks, bankers and investors. Some of these banks are spiritual. There are all kinds of parking meters, whether on Earth, in Heaven, in Hell. I'm not interested in temporary things; material, spiritual, or otherwise. I don't like the idea of parking meters when it comes to my saying Aloha to this place, only to come back again. This is not a natural habitat for me. It isn't for any of us, it is a place of trial and testing. So... perhaps according to the ineffable it is natural but I prefer the supernatural. Some don't. Many don't. They like it here. They get to do things that are natural and unnatural in this place. I don't understand the logic of most of it but apparently it makes sense to them. It makes little sense to me. I've tried a lot of the experiences that people are so hooked on. They just don't do that much for me except as some form of temporary palliative, a momentary escape but... we cannot escape ourselves. That follows wherever we go.

When we drink alcohol and go down or sideways and when we get high and go up to whatever levels are permitted to us... it is momentary and there is a level of attrition attendant, regardless... and you always have to come back to the level you are at because of the integration factor that attends every flight of imagination and perception. The doors close again. Only through initiation or grace is there a lasting operational impact and whether earned or conferred, it is still earned in some way. We have to keep pressing or... conversely, letting go. There are arguments for either approach. I think it is a matter of temperament which one applies ...and I think this speaks to all those different roads that the travelers each insist upon being the only way. The only way where the only way applies is when it has to do with the singular preference of any individual soul. It depends on the ray you are on and your level of advancement and then one could say that this or that was the only way, simply because it is the most expedient and that can vary widely. It still wouldn't be the only way.

The only time it becomes the only way is when it is the path of Love because that is the same slender vein of gold within every path... no matter which, so long as it be a path where Love applies, it can be the only way because... sooner or later, that path must be taken.

I believe it to be true that one can gain all the wisdom of Solomon but they will still have to come back and walk the path of Love but... if one walks the path of Love to begin with, everything else is automatically conferred as well.

I've no idea if Nibiru is around the corner, or if it is something else or something else again. I know that I will be guided to where I should be, or transited, or it won't matter. It will be as it should be because my own greatest drive is for the ineffable and that is a contract that no matter how inconsistently I might honor it, is completely honored at the other end, though there is no other end really. They are the same point but differently perceived from two 'seemingly' different aspects. Eventually we are one with what we seek and emulate and that applies across the board; no matter what way stations we may inhabit for however long, no matter what exit is taken, no matter what town or wasteland of location or being we fall asleep in, we will awaken at some point, no matter how vast the distance ahead or within may appear to be.
