Dog Poet Transmitting.......
(I started on a new post for personal reasons but I had another going... was thoughtful about putting out something that just has to do with me; even though most of my personalized postings are for the purpose of exhibiting synchronicity between myself and the readers. It is my hope that the readers get this and do not surmise that I am indulging in self-aggrandizing subjectivity. This is never my intention and if I seem to bring a certain subject up on more than one occasion it is because I do not feel that I have illustrated or clarified it as successfully as I might have wished on the other occasions. I hope I pulled it off this time. I feel like I did and won't have to visit this issue again. You will find it at the end of this posting.)
To understand the innate propensities of the world to demonstrate in nations, languages and cultures one must understand geography and the sun and moon. Many things that seem to be a mystery to scientists and educated experts, are easily comprehended through the use of logic and reason. There are many obvious truths that stare us in the face and these concepts are sustained in certain secret societies and the apprehension of them, through the use of reason, logic and yes... math, account for aspirants progressing through the grades. Please note that although similar considerations apply to organizations like The Masons and others we have heard about, I am talking specifically of uncompromised brotherhoods, who are entirely unknown in the common parlance. I will also point out that though I am a member of one, I don't know what it is and I have come to these conclusions I have come to on my own, though you never know and I certainly don't... whether or not other influences have been brought to bear on my thinking processes.
I submit that others can argue at my conclusions, or if my conclusions are inarguable to those bright enough to catch the drift of what is implied here, they will surely want to put their own spin on it. That is how so many people are, due to the burning need to promote the false self to its all too brief incendiary glory until it turns to compost. No soul that comes here, passes through here, is legendary unless the ineffable is moving in them. It just doesn't happen and the only exceptions are when it is the infernal moving through them as it too often is these days. Once again we have to replay that great and trenchant Biblical quote; “seek ye first the kingdom of Heaven and his righteousness and all else will be added unto you.” It would be wonderful if people studied that comment with more reflection. It would be even more wonderful if they believed it and applied it. Well... I won't let the suspense build further.
The West is the performance end and the East is the reflection end. Christ is the sun and the heart. Buddha is the mind and the moon. People in the east dream and are born in the west to express. People perform all sorts of austerities for certain lifetimes they are possessed with the desire to experience. Sometimes that involves several lifetimes of service, suffering, whathaveyou. You might have no idea how badly some people want certain things and that accounts for how loathe they are to give them up or share them.
People on the performance end seek to create the image that will manifest in the reflection end and since that is not humanly possible it is all the proof ever needed of human futility in respect of playing god. The sincere in the east are uniformly quiet about what can't be said in the first place and prefer to let their presence do the talking. In the west, the sincere and prescient understand about, “be still and know that I am god.” Short of all that is a whole lot of pointless and meaningless babble that might sound good but it doesn't say anything. It hearkens to that piece from 1st Corinthians. I submit that Charity is not what is meant though it is an aspect of it. Love is what is meant.
Look at the characters of language as they move from extreme to extreme. Look at the religious iconography and symbolisms. Look at sex and the manner in which it is expressed. Look at how panoramic that is. Everything is sex. How we understand what that means may not be lucid or correct but it doesn't change anything. Technology can be explained through the plug and the socket. Of course it extrapolates from there to include all sorts of obvious and arcane permutations. It's still sex. Sinners have sex and saints have sex. The sense of touch is the one most employed in both areas of congress. One form of sex leads to the sense of separation. The other form leads to perpetuating unity.
They understand the deeper meaning of sex in the spiritual sense in the east. In the west we simply provide acceptable rules of behavioral parameters and then routinely break them. Of course this happens in the east and of course there are reflective types in the west and performance expressions in the east. I was speaking in a general sense.
The world is a looking glass. We see ourselves in it, unless we have a special mirror that must be manifested, according to a certain ancient process and although the symbols and systems of its creation are seemingly at variance, they are the same and so is what is being reflected.
I realize this all comes across as a combination of poetic similes that, rather than comparing the inanimate and the living, compares another combination of elements (grin).
But... what am I saying with all this floral arrangement of verbal flowers? What is the gestalt of the affair? Firstly it is created only to make the reader think, imagine and then extrapolate in their own mental ping pong, to arrive at conclusions which, if they are sound, will hearken back to what has been implied here and verify these abstruse strange winged creations as also being sound and flightworthy. Secondly, certain constructs cannot be erected out of direct statement. They can only be understood when the reader does extrapolate and get the intention within the unspeakable understanding of their own minds. Finally, ONLY Love can provide the inspiration for real comprehension because any understanding that does not have Love at the core falls short of enduring truth. There is no other way around or up the mountain.
I guess there is more to life than what I think I see. I hope my love for you reflects a clarity in your love for me.
I need to address an issue here and I hope you will bear with me on it. I will strive to be as sincere as I am capable of. I am aware that I have discussed parts of this issue recently and want to stay away from this issue and because of the season and other reasons so... let me make something clear. For whatever the reason might be, the el(ves) are tirelessly devoted to promoting our work here. This has been going on for years and the elf has just put together a website for me that is pretty outrageous and has involved a tremendous amount of work. This can be evidenced in it having taken almost a year since it was supposed to be unveiled. Part of that has been the archaic technology he has had to work with, not to mention a near dead last internet speed. His efforts have been practically Augean and I love and appreciate him more than I can say.
He visited me a couple of times in Europe and also got to experience what happens occasionally, when people visit me. I take no credit nor blame for these occurrences. Let me just say in all honesty that these phenomena are real and the elf is not the only one to experience it; Alistair and others has also experienced it but in a strictly positive fashion. It varies with the person. Most of the time there are no obvious effects due to the time lapse thing as intention. Irregardless, these things happen. In the case of the elf it was pretty interesting and almost led to a riff but here we are today and the link is stronger than ever. This is probably all the proof needed that it is not about me, nor ever will be.
I'm mentioning these occurrences because the elf, with all the good intentions in the world, wants me to prosper and proliferate. The truth of the matter is that I am fine. I get less in material reward than some and that is fine with me. There is a reason for this and it is why I sometimes am at pains, exhaustively it might seem, to disabuse any possibility of my being taken seriously. The only one who should be taken seriously is the ineffable. I am an agent and not a very good one sometimes and that is the ineffable's doing, just as are my successes, which finally, are outweighing the incidences of off the rails behavior. That is also the doing of the ineffable, in BOTH respects.
The ineffable once told me, “Everything is under control. Take the reins.” It seems simple enough but... try taking the reins. Such a potentiality does not come without cost to the personal self. One might argue there is no personal self; even though, after a fashion, there is. The cost is the loss of the personal self, or perhaps reconstruction is a better word, or even better, the revealing of the self from under the suffocating blanket of the false self and that is the deal for any of us so disposed and most of us are not because of the investment in the false self and then the cost of the loss of the entirety of this investment seems too dear. That is because most of us are unaware of the joys that can come through a real dedication, attended by certitude and determination. It's a simple thing but... oh my god, in all the world and anywhere elsewhere, there is no struggle so great.
Apropos to all of this, whatever circumstances or conditions I am placed in or put through are exactly what they are supposed to be. When the time comes that anyone is moved to help me in any way, they will be. If not, that's fine too. No material value could ever be commensurate in any case and in that case, only the ineffable can deliver anything commensurate in any respect and provide the enjoyment experienced... by coming into residence, which is the ineffable's chief desire and our own unrecognized one.
I am not being humble by calculation here. There is no calculation involved, except to continue in this work and to not be made much of. It might seem that I am saying the right things here but that is because they are the right things and no truly humble person got there on their own steam. They get taken there through a series of events, where they finally see the comparison between themselves and the ineffable and there is no comparison. It's one thing to imagine this and quite another to experience it repeatedly. It wears you down until there is nothing left of you but a still and motionless mirror of stabilized Mercury and an ever increasing sense of awe. That's it and, I might add, payment enough in all the realms of possible being.
I'm not saying all of this to discount the sincere intentions of the elf. I am touched by them but there is a reason I NEVER personally ask for anything because you, dear reader, are not the one to ask. Hopefully this communicates my position and it is a sincere one, even if it makes me seem like a deluded and presumptuous fool because I, in my own mind, am nowhere near the goal, however, for reasons I won't go into... I do know that the ineffable is closer in time and presence to us than we ever will be to ourselves except... after a certain point ...and transformation can take place at any time and be total and complete at any time; regardless of what any of us might imagine to be the distance between ourselves and the ineffable.
This seeming distance is our own construction, brought into being through the tension and release of our struggle against the ineffable's efforts to set us free. Eventually we understand this and begin to cooperate in the process. Then we cease to be troubled by the desire for terrestrial returns. We are getting paid.
What the elf says about me is true. I do work at some variant of this all the time and as far as appearances go, I don't get remunerated accordingly and sometimes not at all; lately, this year, it has been like that more often than not. Let me state with all the totality of truth that I can muster that the fact that you, take the trouble to come here and appreciate what happens here, is worth the world and all that is in it to me. One has to consider whether this might really be so. In that case, one should reflect on the countless other enterprises one could be involved in and what one might expect in return for any of them. We all get repaid for our work in the coin of that particular field of enterprise.
In any case we need to be satisfied with what that is. Your level of awareness defines for you the playing field you perform on and which is generated in its totality by your value system. There is no common playing field. The mind creates it and the heart fuels it and no matter what you think, it is all about the meaning and discovery of the one most precious thing in the universe. The trip is that you have to know that it exists and that that is what it is. It has to mean something more to you than anything else or you won't discover it. Something else will impersonate it and it will disappoint you, as anything will disappoint you that you have mistaken what you thought it to be and then it proves this to you. That's life.
It would seem then that the primary inquiry of existence is what is real and what is not and how to tell the difference. Of course, it will be impossible to tell the difference before you can tell what is real and unreal in yourself and this is impossible unless the ineffable comes in and demonstrates this to you, since the ineffable is the only thing that is real or makes anything else by extension real.
We all exist and continue under the grace of the ineffable, not one moment is this less than true and we had better come to an understanding of this and grasp the essential nature of gratitude. Once that has been achieved, we find that we are increasingly more grateful as we go and ever more certain of where that might be. One of the most underrated emotions is Gratitude, most especially for the power in it. It is far more powerful than most might suspect and is right up there with imagination.
So... regardless of what anyone who comes here does or does not do for me I am content in terms of what's in it for me and certainly appreciative when anyone is motivated to support my work but they support my work best by coming here and taking what is useful and applying it to the betterment of all of us. I have learned some hard lessons in this life. I am very much unlike what I was last year and the year before in respect of the following year. Let us hope that is the case with all of us and that we grow out of the bad constructions of our own hand into the divine image hewn by the divine hand. This is no work for the lazy or for cowards. You will be tested to the limits of your endurance and you will fail but... the ineffable will lift you up at the appointed time.
