The Saturday Night- Out of Line Dancing at Gilley's.

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

Yes folks, it’s starting to look like the cosmic version of a Texas Line Dance with Gilley’s being represented by Planet Earth. It’s like a typical Saturday night but a little early on. There have been a few hard looks and a little pushing and shoving but no one is that drunk yet. Don’t worry, they will be. The head-busting hour will arrive as it always does. The really good looking women, who are the cause of the problems, are actually humanized representations of large oil deposits, strategically placed countries and immense bank accounts of questionable provenance along with all of the resources that allow for the club to function whenever furniture needs to be replaced or food and drink when it runs out.

The guys, who also look human, are themselves representations of ambitions that are composed of desires woven together by a calculating imagination which automated the ambitions. Certain ambitions cannot succeed unless others fail. This is a hard-wired reality. None of these ambitions can succeed on their own, so alliances have to be made. There’s no room for more than two groups because if there are three, then whichever two get to the musical chair room first will come out with knives and forks and devour the third group. That’s just how it’s been so far. All the ambitions know this, so for those of us in the audience who only see half of the picture, because we don’t get to go backstage, we have to fill in the blanks (grin) in our heads.

All week long, everybody is thinking about Saturday night (cue Loverboy “Working for the Weekend”). It’s not a real week, any more than these are real people. It’s longer than that. However the time feature may be, speaking in a relative sense, we’re in the neighborhood of sometime Saturday at this very moment.

For a long time, a particular gang has run the show at Gilley’s. They call themselves, The NATO Cowboys. That’s an acronym for, Nasty Aggressive Terror Orcs. They’ve been in a long standing alliance with the Bankeraelis who are also not human and who exist on a diet of money and blood. The Bankeraelis, being vampires, have been slowly gaining a commanding control over the flow of blood which, together with their control of the money, has given them an authority that outweighs their numbers. Luckily, on a particular level, they are lightweights and so, though they can maneuver the NATO Cowboys most of the time, they can’t one on one confront them or they will get their asses kicked. That’s not a consideration of the moment however. Well, yeah it is, as we shall see.

So, for as many Saturday nights as we can remember, this cabal of head-stomping drunks has owned Gilley’s and they’ve had their way with the women and the men too and there hasn’t been much anyone can do about it. People get raped on the tables and beheaded in the bathrooms and it’s just been the way it is. You might ask why those victimized attend the club but, as I mentioned, it’s the world. Where are they going to go?

I guess this could just go on forever, except for the small penis thing. There’s a physiological transformation that occurs when you dine on blood and money, to the exclusion of other essential foods that are necessary to maintain overall good health. Over time, your penis shrinks while your chest expands. The chest expansion takes the place of the penis in terms of a performance statement of the being, in terms of reproduction (which doesn’t actually occur) and in terms of ancient social dances that are dressed up in romance and colorful outfits but are really just about ‘the old in and out’ once you strip away the trappings.

What happened is that as the expanded chest thing took over the Power Point presentation of the penis, due to its shrinking, the Bankeraelis got the idea that they could do whatever they wanted to anyone, including their allies, because their chest was doing the talking. Also, the more the penis was shrinking, the more the chest was compelled to make a statement without actually being able to penetrate anything enough to anchor it to any sense of union with whatever it was supposed to be in alliance with.

So, the Bankeraelis did some disgusting shit on the NATO Cowboys turf. This seems to have been okay because it served the NATO Cowboys interests, since they still had penises and they could then rape a lot more of the other customers who accepted it because the disgusting shit was made to look like somebody else did it. Flushed, not only with the blood of anyone they could nail and drain but with blood and money together, which is a little like Cocaine and Alcohol, the Bankeraelis went after one of the NATO Cowboys who had been their best friend in the neighborhood and they tried to kill him.

At the same time, the NATO Cowboys had been attempting to ass-rape a smaller gang that lived next door to them called the SATO Gauchos. That’s an acronym for Sick of Aggressive Terror Orcs. The reason the NATO Cowboys were doing this was because the SATO Gauchos had some fine looking women, which weren’t actually women but you get the idea.

The plot thickens cause, over in the back of the club there’s way more tables, by far, than what’s in the main lit up area where the NATO Cowboys and the Bankeraelis rape and stomp and kill. There’s a red and yellow and white collection of the majority of the population of the club at any time and it gets larger every minute because their penises still work over there but I’m just guessing.

They’ve been watching what’s been happening to all of their neighbors and keeping out of it more or less, because though the NATO Cowboys and Bankeraelis have been doing whatever the Hell they want to, they haven’t gone after this one particular chick in the club yet but… now it's obvious that’s just a matter of time. This chick lives next door to a lot of the people in the back of the club and if they go ahead and rape her on the table then they figure they are next. The red contingent has been pretty quiet because the NATO Cowboys were drone-bombing the shit out of their long time enemy but it’s finally occurred to them that they’re next too.

What’s happened is that all the people who aren’t NATO Cowboys and Bankeraelis have decided to go have a chat at the house of that chick I was just talking about and that one NATO Cowboy cat decided he would go along too because the Bankeraelis tried to kill him and his NATO Cowboy butt buddies didn’t pull his coat about it beforehand so he figures he’s expendable.

Well, this is bad news for the NATO Cowboys but much worse for the shrinking penis Bankeraelis who nobody likes, not even the NATO Cowboys, but they just don’t talk about it. Nearly everybody thinks the Bankeraelis are an active yeast form of reptile smegma from Hell but they haven’t been able to do much because the Bankeraelis control their money and they also control the sound system in the club, which means they control the guy who announces the music and makes the public service announcements and whatever gets said over the P.A., which means that whatever people hear gets explained to them however it suits the Bankeraelis.

What I’m trying to say is that this is shaping up to be a different kind of Saturday Night than we’ve been having. Everybody in the club is sick of the NATO Cowboys but are especially, projectile puking, gut wrenching- something crawled up there and died- sick of the Bankeraelis. So, they decided they would all get together and let these long time, dominant punks know that they are likely not to take it any more if it keeps on going the way it’s been going. A little head stomping and rape is okay because all of them do it but… you can’t head-stomp and rape everybody in the club because nobody is going to have any fun then.

Most of the time, the club owner is sleeping in the back and doesn’t do much about what goes on. He’s been a kind of ‘let them work it out’ club owner and that’s allowed for a lot of freedom of expression. Now, however, one of the NATO Cowboys pissed in the pool and turned the water black and the club owner likes to swim there in his dreams. This gave the club owner a nightmare and also killed a lot of his dream dolphin companions of whom he is EXCEEDINGLY fond and this woke him up and he is not happy; not happy at all. The club owner can personally head-stomp everyone in the club with one hand tied behind his back so, we’ll see what comes of that. I’ll be out in the parking lot, laying in the back of my pickup and looking at the stars, in case anyone wonders what I’m doing.

If you can't comment because of ongoing Zio-Nazi attacks send your comments to lesvisible@gmail.com and I will put them up.

I will enjoy watching Cassiopia dance.

Wish I could join you for the solstice, but trapped in the occupied confederacy as I am, it is just not ment to be.
My thoughts will be with you however.

This is, honestly, a hilarious post. Alas, I doubt one in a hundred people would be able to understand it. Think the club owner might be willing to make a little expansion for those who have been desperately redialing his cell phone trying to tell him some ugly shit is going down and he better have a look? A private cabaret with a semi-hidden entrance would be a nice addition to the club.

After reading this I stood up and clapped for a fantastic summation of what is going down (grin). Yes things are going to get interesting. Grab your cajones amigos it's going to be a hell of a ride. The Saudis are now getting into the act vocally which makes it more action pact since they have a lot to due with this part of world.

I realize that if I'm going to use someone else's music to make this kind of point I should have dug a little deeper and used this one or maybe this one or both as the case is.

Maybe I should have used someone I respected instead of someone I simply enjoy but then I couldn't have done this now could I?

I don't usually do this sort of thing but I think these songs are a good example of the times ahead of time and a telling evidence of what is no longer allowed to be said. That, in itself, is as great a crime as any crime we suffer from but... it's about the change and hallelujah to that.

The club owner is never asleep. He mingles among the crowd of fools, incognito, listening to all the illusionary, penis enhancement, machinations. He chuckled to himself over the fool boasting about his phat finger.

Well, at first when my agent booked my group into this club, it was pretty easy to simply keep the head down and just keep playing. Heck, I was so stoked to be on stage I never even noticed the body parts or the screams. It never really got too scary up there since the chicken wire was in place and the crowd needed a good groove to do their thing to, so it was all good for a while. Hey, a paycheck is a paycheck, right?

Then, we showed up for our usual gig one night and discovered that someone had made off with the microphones. That made it hard to do the songs the way we wanted to. I mean, no one could hear the words anymore but hey, a gig is a gig so we made do with what we had left. ASCAP showed up one night and said we owed a shit-ton of money for playing those cover tunes, and when I said "Willie Dixon and Muddy won't ever see any of this money, so WTF are you on about?" he just smiled and said we had to pay or we would be shut down by the cops.

Then, soon after the ASCAP hasle, the drum set was stolen along with my prized amplifier and all our instruments, too. I saw a truck out back with our gear in it, but when I tried to confront the dude making off with it he just laughed and said "Nothing personal - it is just the way things are done around here! Shoulda read the fine print in your contract" The problem was, the patrons kept threatening us with harm if we didn't keep entertaining, so we found some bottles and a couple empty 5 gallon pails and proceeded to bang out a jungle-jam kinda thing, which didn't seem to bother the crowd one bit. In fact, they seemed to enjoy watching us struggle to keep it all going with less and less, as long as we kept showing up and smiled while we played.

I appealed to our agent to get us a better gig, but he said the club owner insisted we stay and just ride it out for now. He appreciated that we were at least somewhat reliable and didn't join in with the insanity, and indicated that there might be an opportunity to open his new club that was being set up in a new location. "No promises", he said, but he told me as long as we keep showing up and don't let the goings-on turn us into something resembling the crowd we would at least get an audition.

I have since been whittling a new guitar out of some Koa wood I had been saving, and while it won't be as shiny and perfect as the old one I had, it should hopefully be good enough to start anew when this place is gone and a new stage is built. I know it will sound good, because this one is being made with all the love my heart can muster, although I still get splinters doing the work and managed to lose my tools for a spell. It is hard work, but I am finding some excellent instruction on the 'net and even have some people willing to help with the hard stuff like doing the inlay and crowning the frets properly.

I hope to see all of you at the new club when it opens. Maybe we can even help build the place into the finest anywhere.

Actually, as it turns out, I am younger than you but not by that much.

Here's a masterpiece of a song. I used to sit at the piano at those times when I was supremely lit and do things like this some of them my own and some by people like this who know how to be evocative of the secret losses of the heart due to the poetry that is no longer buried in their soul.

All of us carry a treasure chest within and sooner or later the pummeling of life and the disintegration of everything that held our fear together and kept us from expressing the truth of all we held important; well, we have to be stripped of it before it gains enough meaning to jerk us from our sleep and make us proclaim it independent of any threat or insecurity that may linger.

Not even death and the repetition of vain and wasted lives across centuries of forgetfulness can forever restrain the force and power that will eventually come forth to declare the nature and object of that which we love more than all the lives it took to get there including the one in which it happens.

It's just a matter of time before our desire for flight overcomes our desire for the bonds that hold us down.

This is 9 days now with a total of no more than ten hours of sleep. It's 4:15 AM and heh heh... I'm stunned; bright and clear mentally but stunned at the power of this newly activated siddhi.

I thought I'd see if I could alter it so I bought a bottle of Campari and a large beer and they're gone with absolutely no impact at all. There was a heaviness in the area of the cortex, which is where the poisons are housed that we drain during sleep but now that's gone now too. Well, that's pretty impressive is all I can say and I suspect this is not going to change, period.

It's kind of nice having a pretty large extra percentage of physical life now and another strange thing has been happening since this Kundalini event. For a number of years time has been speeding up so that it seemed like a third of the day was missing. Since this event started the time it takes an hour to pass has doubled. I don't know what to make of that.

Anyway, this is also impressive and it should remove all doubt that the world has entered a serious point of transition. You will, I'm sure, compare the scientific estimates with the official government line. This is a breath-taking catastrophe.

Hey, knock yourself but, you do see why, as I said in the initial comment, I don't do this sort of thing (grin) ordinarily?

Tonight is the first time I've listened to music in a couple of years. I wouldn't even listen to my own except that I have to in order to record it and I haven't done much of that in awhile either.

Tonight I enjoyed it though but usually I like the empty space. No telling how I'll feel tomorrow. Things are changing so rapidly within that I have no clue who is going to be here.

Zoner said...

Les, the no sleep thing is pretty intense sounding - just don't end up like Christian Bale in "The Machinist", OK?

It is upon us, isn't it? All this time it seemed far off, like there was plenty of time, or even a dream or something to play at but, this is really heading where we think (dare I say hope?) it is.

Oh well, since we are spinning tunes, here is one of my faves and the reason I started to play guitar. My peers were all hypnotized by KISS, but Carlos grabbed my heart and has yet to let go.

Gilley's!? Good grief, your mind sure does 'get around'! You gotta be pretty sharp to utilize a famous Pasadena Texas dive for a picture of the world situation. Perfect picture.

Just wanted to share a little dittie on Mickey himself.

Long before there were 'concerts' they gave us these things called rock n roll shows...There'd be 6-8 different bands...and general admission tickets.
Long about 1961 I caught Mickey Gilley & band at one of them. I can't describe the pride I felt (as a 15 y.o.) to watch Gilley playing a Rickenbacker 450 (crested wave) 6....black/gold anodized pick guard..

....Exactly like the one my Dad bought for me a year prior.

And that show occured long before the Beatles put Rickenbackers on the map. Nobody used Ricks til then.

Again, thanks for the great metaphor. I wasn't one of the cowboys at Gilley's (hippies and cowboys didn't mix well back then) but I remember the place and it's fame. It brought a shock and a grin to hear someone from half way around the world mention a place jes down the road from me & my past.


The main event at Gilley's, as you recall, was the robotic bull ride. While reading your story I thought, 'oh yeah'...imagined seeing that bull morphing into a multi-headed beast complete with the Whore Babylon atop...squirming...slithering.
..deceiving the gawkers :-) There's a whole underground film script there in your story somewhere.

Stay safe and keep on thinking free,

I am not quite sure I buy into the whole synchronicity thing; however, I think I have read every post here for about two years or so and this is the only one I can remember that everyone is on the same page.

I came across this little ditty last weekend and started laughing. Don't ask me how I came across it because I don't know, but I downloaded it to my desktop. At the time, it provided for better clarity than a Tibetan singing bowel; not that I need one for clarity, but I have one to play around with.

This song doesn't say much:

Good Morning Ya All, It's good to see that the gang here has some knowledge and good taste in music. I like and enjoy most of the tunes that have been posted here so far today.

One of my favorite groups is: Arthur Lee and Love and the album that I like the most by them is "Forever Changes" and my favorite song on that album is: "You Set The Scene." And I just happen to have a link to that very tune. This version is many years later than the original, but it still rocks:

Typical; that is also one of my all time favorite groups. Anybody that can write "Little Red Book" and "Orange Skies" has got some range. They had a truly unique sound. My appreciation for The Fine Young Cannibals is because they remind me of Love, for whatever reason. Maybe it's just purely subjective but they do.

To add some additional humor and if you think cartoons sometimes resemble reality you may want to check this out. It kinda makes me think of our predicament in the ME. I picture Bugs Bunny as the wayward explorer (US) and Daffy as the Bankeraelis. The Arabs are depicted how the Bankerelies probably perceive them. They have the gold or should I say oil and the Bankeraelis want it bad and will put Bugs life on the line for it. Of course, the U.S. no longer resembles Bugs in my view unless they are playing along in order to expose the charlatans. I’m not putting my first born on that though. Enjoy

Great finale by the (Bankeraelis) if you watch it till the end.

Les,

Your promised suggestion for the mutual focus of intent regarding the world situation and the condition of humanity is sorely needed. This is my plea. I look forward to joining my heart's fervent voice with the other beautiful folks here and, just maybe, making that much of a difference.

Yours in loving sincerity of faith,
~william

bholanath said...

I'm tending toward agreement with BCth. I read his plea and believe it's in the right spirit. It seems anything that transpires in this vein will be helpful both to all who join together and to all beings under siege.

I am nowhere near the writer that Les and many others here are, but I did post the Message of Arvol Looking Horse on my humble blog, prefaced with the following:

[Yesterday I read the message "A Great Urgency"]
At about the same time I was listening to the great teacher of indigenous wisdom, Martin Prechtel on the radio. Both are reeling, as are many of us, from the continuing "disaster of biblical proportions" ongoing in the Gulf. While the MS&M media claims that 58% of 'murrikans' want to continue on the same old path of "all about self" and plunging the knife ever deeper into the heart of the Mother so to preserve some so-called "way of life", the obvious missing element here is well known and hardly needs to be said: Empathy. Just like Respect, the humans have fled from Empathy faster and faster for last 5000 years.

Prechtel was describing the event as a great "spiritual heart attack". He spoke of the Mayan view of Oil as the "neuron-deity of the memory of what it means to be a living creature". Their view of the Ocean is the Great Mother whose children we all are. They look at the Ocean, but don't Touch Her until they have been through a certain initiation. She is viewed with the highest reverence. The Mayan word is Ya. Ya for the Ocean, and all women have the prefix Ya before their names.

Empathy seems to be the test and the key and the line in the sand for this point in time in our spiritual evolution. I don't know if those who have put off rediscovering their sense of empathy with all beings have any more time left. It's gonna be a hard rain. Martin, as he has been doing for years, advises us to fully feel our grief, both for the creatures our brethren and for the Mother/Grandmother. His teaching is: to "metabolize the grief into beauty, of an active prayer for a time beyond our own, something that makes a human into someone worth descending from, and to become a neighbor to all other creatures and beings in the world." He also emphasizes that "the WAY you do everything absolutely MATTERS". Not "how big" your action is. We must love one another (and ourselves) for our "small greatness".

respects,
bholanath

I have to say I am pleased with the radio show this evening and hope you will be in a position to hear it. Otherwise it will be available for download tomorrow or later tonight at the link at the bottom of the post.

How I can still require almost no sleep and be clearer than I can remember being is faith assuring mystery to me as are the conversations I am now having all day long.

In the spirit of most of what has been said here recently; most notably Bholanath's latest I want to extend a gift to all of you that will reveal the history of the world as it really is and the tenants behind every belief system of which we have knowledge. I am presently reading about The Druids and it is fascinating.

I've had this book for years but never read it all the way through. That is what I am doing now and you are welcome to your own copy by going to my shared file space on line and downloading it. I put an entire library of metaphysical, alchemical and spiritual texts up a few months ago but nobody took advantage of it so I removed it. Now there is just the one book and you are invited to help yourself here.

Well, I am completely blown away, shattered; visible the work you are promoting is contrary to everything you espouse - manley p hall is a 33 degree mason of the scottish rite(conferred 1973) and the author of 'the lost keys of freedom' (approx' 1927): A supremo fruit loop luciferian ANTI-CHRIST.


A 'genuine' Knight of The Temple of Jerusalem.

Visible said...

I've said it before and I'll say it again. I don't buy into all that bullshit and I doubt you know much about Hall at all, whereas I know a great deal more. It's one of the banes of life and something I always find to be unfortunate that people have so many opinions on things which they consider themselves experts on.

You also probably know very little about the book which is a historical record, without prejudice about most everything under the sun, concerning mysteries and societies. It teaches nothing and it represents nothing. It just lays out information. You ought to ask yourself how you know anything at all if you didn't read about the subjects. What you are suggesting is that no one learn anything because you already know everything, which does no one any good if you think about it.

I'll say it here one more time. I am my own man and I owe no one here or anywhere else anything. What I give I give freely and with good conscience and everyone is free to think what they like but that has no influence whatsoever over what I say or do.

This Don Quixote thing of yours tends to blind you to a very important point. The traditions you espouse are held in every bit as much suspicion and the traditions you attack.

The tenants of Masonry are not evil at all. It's pure math. Evil is in the heart of the individual according to how they use these things.

I'm not going to argue with you about it and I don't mean to offend you. I like you. I like all of you but I don't dance to your tune. I make up my own mind about things and on this matter I am correct and you are not and anyone here who reads what the book actually contains is going to agree with me.

I suspect you haven't even read the book but you know all about it. Doesn't this tell you anything?

I can't tell you how wearying it is to hear people coming off with their witchburner mentalities and attacking every society that ever was because they got the idea it was evil with no actual exposure. I belong to an ancient brotherhood that goes back into the mists of time and which, no doubt, all the usual suspects consider evil commensurate with their ignorance concerning it, even though most people have no knowledge of its existence.

This book is an impartial record of information concerning the hidden side of things. it has no agenda at all.

I've spent too much time writing this while I could be relaxing and enjoying my empty space after a long and vigorous day of work. I won't explain myself again.

Most definitely; I have not read that book, I have however read the one I mention; I prefer Bio's and preferably auto-bio's – ‘A sort of Life’ (Greene) is one of my favourites, for his candid explanation of subjective vanity and humility. Why bio's? Because I like to understand people, I came to appreciate Hemingway BECAUSE I couldn't get into his prose; it was so different from anything I had been exposed to. I researched the man and read 'Papa', a biography written about Hemingway by his dear friend (talk about chalk and cheese) A.E. Hotchner; suddenly I got what Hemingway was trying to achieve, no nonsense leading straight right combinations of punchy pars'. Now, I am a proponent of his and look for his style all the time (grin). My opinion like yours is a matter of prerogative. I didn't criticise you as you can see, I simply have no time for masonry or black magick; 'I' don't think it helps. That you have some connexion with this medium came as a shock to me. I have read a bio’ of Hall and it pushed me further away. My father was a mason (and a didactic career military brute, god bless him) of some degree and encouraged me to join – he made available a great many books to me, one being the Hall Bio' and another, the book I mention(beautifully bound first editions). I am struggling to deal with my own spirituality and ‘I’ am certain investing time in such sophisticated esoteria by a novice is incredibly dangerous to ones’ spiritual development – the Druids were great teachers and practitioners. My tribe; the Setante, a sub–tribe of the Great Brigantes of North central England were Druidic – we need our sages, which is why I frequent your Blogs, not for silly internecine rivalries. That you are a complex and enigmatic character is at one time alluring and at another perplexing – that you constantly shift and morph’ before 'my' eyes beguiles me. This confusion does cause me to question myself, and is in no way intended to waste your time – I ask questions of my teachers constantly, the best teachers I have had are the most controversial and affective – the platonic (grin) among them have not so much as a vague place in my memories and the most ephemeral effect upon my development – you have and do profoundly affect my development. Nameste. I will hold my hand out, once again, for the ‘cuts’; however, if I have a question I will ask it, regardless of the consequences.

Thank you for your valuable time and priceless patience. I must go now as Rocinante is champing at the Bit (grin).

Nothing of substance is what I have to say except for two words: Thank you.

Listening to James talking about the oil disaster and how we can all approach it in our minds, deal with it, send loving energy to where it's needed, and understand the purpose of it all. And it's true what he says: everything happens because it's allowed to happen. It's up to us individually to turn to the divine Source and ask that the highest good for all beings be the ultimate outcome. Because it will be, and eventually we'll all realize that.

the BCth said...

Dublin Mick, thanks for setting an example on that prayer thing. I've been a little bit of a wimp, myself. But that's the beauty of a community like this: we can all learn from each other.

BTW, I have started reading the Hall book. It may take some time to finish it, but I will - although actually my first priority these days is the study of Eastern wisdom teachings... that is some powerful stuff. I'm kind of laughing at the fact that I never got into it before now, hehe.

well as long as we're doing relevant lyrics, this one always had special meaning to me;

THRASHER by Neil Young
--------
They were hiding behind hay bales,
They were planting in the full moon
They had given all they had for something new
But the light of day was on them,
They could see the thrashers coming
And the water shone like diamonds in the dew.

And I was just getting up, hit the road before it's light
Trying to catch an hour on the sun
When I saw those thrashers rolling by,
Looking more than two lanes wide
I was feelin' like my day had just begun.

Where the eagle glides ascending
There's an ancient river bending
Down the timeless gorge of changes
Where sleeplessness awaits
I searched out my companions,
Who were lost in crystal canyons
When the aimless blade of science
Slashed the pearly gates.

It was then I knew I'd had enough,
Burned my credit card for fuel
Headed out to where the pavement turns to sand
With a one-way ticket to the land of truth
And my suitcase in my hand
How I lost my friends I still don't understand.

They had the best selection,
They were poisoned with protection
There was nothing that they needed,
Nothing left to find
They were lost in rock formations
Or became park bench mutations
On the sidewalks and in the stations
They were waiting, waiting.

So I got bored and left them there,
They were just deadweight to me
Better down the road without that load
Brings back the time when I was eight or nine
I was watchin' my mama's T.V.,
It was that great Grand Canyon rescue episode.

Where the vulture glides descending
On an asphalt highway bending
Thru libraries and museums, galaxies and stars
Down the windy halls of friendship
To the rose clipped by the bullwhip
The motel of lost companions
Waits with heated pool and bar.

But me I'm not stopping there,
Got my own row left to hoe
Just another line in the field of time
When the thrashers comes, I'll be stuck in the sun
Like the dinosaurs in shrines
But I'll know the time has come
To give what's mine.

write on Bro.

Here: Floater - The Wave

Visible said...

Nothing wearies and depresses me more than when I have to explain what should already be understood.

As for myself, I make mistakes- I'm a work in progress- but I'm trying to quit.

Because I still have shortcomings I have to be considerate of shortcomings in others. If I fail at this then I will know about it promptly because at this stage of the game I know about it right away. I need a certain latitude to operate in and so I must extend that to others. Because I have been given certain precious gifts and the ability to see a little deeper into things as I go, I have to be mindful of how I see myself.

The best defense I have is to be charitable and never presume that I understand completely or that I know how it's supposed to be done and somehow that gives me the right to behave as if I do, which is not the case.

The further I proceed the more inconsequential I realize I am and that's a good thing. I don't want to be consequential. I don't want to stick my head above others where it can be knocked off (grin). It's not fear of that which persuades me. It's the genuine realization that I'm no more important than anyone else and anyone who thinks they are will be instructed otherwise.

So I can't just arbitrarily forbid someone the right to post here because they are eccentric, or brash or sometimes over the top or because someone else doesn't like them. We are all part of the family of God, If something bothers us about someone else then we need to look inside ourselves to see where the fault lies.

I'm not firing on all cylinders at the moment. I hardly sleep and so many things are happening that it's all I can do to be mindful of them. I feel fine and all but it is a little startling through every single day. I haven't been here before.

It is expected that dustups and personality conflicts will arise; that's the formula on the phenomenological side. It doesn't mean we need to focus on them. Directly behind these annoyances lies an ocean of love and we can leap past these things right into it. It's what we are supposed to do.

I expect I am still going to screw up on occasion and sometimes exercise poor judgment but I am determined to get past this. I need that ocean of love. I need it more than anything; absolutely. So I am not going to let things like this hinder me and press on me to be the sheriff unless the situation is obvious and, I assure you, I have no problem with that.

I've dealt with these things up close and in real life when it wasn't just words on a computer screen. I know how that works and I think I can see when actual malice is at work.

We don't just skate through the gates of the kingdom. There are obstacles in the road. We can't negotiate these while our eyes are on someone else's behavior that we are objecting to. We'll have an accident for sure and it will be our own fault.

Good will and high hopes for you all.

"Visible said...

Let's be clear about it.

It's everywhere and no where...UK, Germany, France, China, U.S., even Italy (no place is immune). Comes down to Karma and Consciousness. Either one's got it or one doesn't, and if one does, one knows how to automatically, naturally, spontaneously take the path of least resistance in a potentially volatile situation, as it unfolds. Be it at the border, at the cafe down the street, or even on the internet.

Now with that being said, on the other side of the coin, we are living in a time where it can literally, or figuratively speaking, be a crime to go "outside."

Visible said...

No... it is definitely worse in some places. It was worse in the U.S. when I left 11 years ago than anywhere in Europe I've been since and I travel.

It could be that I skate. People mention how authorites pay no attention to me but I would hear about it, I would see it in operation. I would notice it at passport control and on trains and planes and I do not.

Only thing I have noticed remotely close is the financial police in Italy and Switzerland.

In Australia I can still 'mouth off' at the cop that pulls me over for a 'license check' or a breath test and have an altercation as to how effective it all is. The airport security who pulls me aside (regularly) for a bomb check gets the same treatment with no consequences – just a ‘ho hum, don’t tell me, tell your local politician’ or some such.
Even the quarantine guards who are at some of our borders are still very polite and you can have a carload of product not allowed over the border (because of the possibility of disease) and they tell you to eat it or put it in the bin – thank you.

Dress Rehearsal is Over. It's Time for Opening Night.>

Zurdo said...

I see a lot of things happening in the U.S. that make my skin crawl, especially here in California. At various stages I have planned to relocate to a variety of countries including Honduras before the coup took place but, because of family, friends, and associates I’ve developed a love for over the years I found it unlikely I’d leave for my own personal gratification. I’m now taking care of my elderly parents after what they have done for me over many years and California became their heartfelt home to end their final years.

In light of what’s happening in the world and the U.S., I think many Americans are thinking, why stick around when other places seem more tranquil, at least for now. After reading about what the Palestinians go through on a recurring basis I often wondered why they stick it out, day after day. It would probably be somewhat easier for them to leave and try their best someplace else. Dealing with white phosphorus, depleted uranium, contaminated drinking water, incursions etc. is not my idea of a place to raise a family or live a fulfilling life. But nonetheless, they continue to struggle on and maintain some semblance of community. In their hearts this is their home and they WILL withstand a host of abuses before letting a group of psychopaths destroy their heritage. The Apache tried to do the same thing and to some degree succeeded. They have some good size reservations close to their homeland, if that is any conciliation.

When looking at the world I think about how I can make it better at a personal and community level, which is why I decided to work on, developing sustainable communities. A good example of this is the Eden Project in England and the Masdir city in Abu Dhabi. I’m now developing connections with China and the Philippines as well. We can all make a difference no matter where we are in the world and it may be difficult at times but we adjust and move forward. These are the cards I was dealt by the Divine and I’ll play them from where I sit right now.

For those of us that want a better country we need to get more involved at the community level which is where things can start. We have a so much to gain and so much to lose if we do not participate in making the world a better place for all humans no matter where one calls home.

"All endeavor calls for the ability to tramp the last mile, shape the last plan, endure the last hours toil. The fight to the finish spirit is the one... characteristic we must posses if we are to face the future as finishers."

Yes, it's true, some places are hotter than others. But that wasn't my point.

We live in a time where everyone we encounter could potentially be dangerous. This is my premise. With that being the backdrop, it helps if one is able to "nip it at the bud" prior to the encounter, i.e., keep the situation cool rather than heat it up. Case in point, if one truly listens to the encounter that the supposedly innocent couple going through the border encountered, there is an underlying edge to their side of the conversation. Not that they are not within their right to express themselves as they wish, but were they really that naive? Like I said, everyone we encounter has the potential to be dangerous, whether that is the postman in Argentina, the fat black TSA bitch with an attitude in Atlanta airport telling you to remove your pants, the neighbor next door or one's spouse.

Unfortunately, with the programing along with the mind (and heart) altering substances so rampantly available, e.g. Rx and non prescribed drugs, gmo foods, iphones, internet, TV, etc., etc., it's becoming harder to "pick up" on the multitude of "trip wires" underneath the surface in those we encounter.

The "mind-fields" are everywhere. However, if one is in touch with their "subtle radar" and one is also able to keep one's Ego in check, one has a substantially better chance of reducing the ruffling of feathers in others, i.e. taking the path of least resistance. At least this is my personal experience.

Granted, it's not really how one cares to spend ones time, but it's the world we live in today.

It's a global thing, now. There's no escaping it's influence, but there are ways to "lay low while the storm passes over" .

I think there is more going on there than you are willing to admit ;-). (See, you've got the Ego in check, naturally, automatically, spontaneously). It's a subtle science (the Mechanics of Consciousness, Being) and maybe your ability to see and bring out the best in others is simply you fulfilling your Dharmic role (as a PeaceMaker?).

It's what many aspire to attain.

Sadly though, you aren't the norm.

Mimi Farina

Mimi is one of my all time favorites, I saw her perform with Tom Jans at "In The Ally" a coffee house in Escondido, CA in 1970 and at Sonoma State University, with Banana (from the Youngbloods) in 1980. I don't have any lyrics or videos of her at this time, but I do have a link to a very interesting site about her life. Take a trip back in time to the good ol'? days and check out the people she performed with and her friends at:

Bakery chain Panera Bread opens non-profit, pay-what-you-want shop

The pilot restaurant is run by a nonprofit foundation. If it can sustain itself financially, Panera will expand the model around the country within months. It all depends on whether customers will abide by the motto that hangs above the deli counter: "Take what you need, leave your fair share."

Heading to Frogtown to listen to some great musicians and bands from the links many people sent in to Les.

http://www.jambase.com/emails/promoters/LiveNation/SF/2010/100528/index.html

It has to be a good thing since many of the folks are from a bygone era and I fill like reminiscing.

Anyone in Cali interested in meeting up drop me an email.

Les,

check out this article:

Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet.com
Wednesday, May 19, 2010

At a recent Council on Foreign Relations speech in Montreal, co-founder with David Rockefeller of the Trilateral Commission and regular Bilderberg attendee Zbigniew Brzezinski warned that a “global political awakening,” in combination with infighting amongst the elite, was threatening to derail the move towards a one world government.

Brzezinski explained that global political leadership had become “much more diversified unlike what it was until relatively recently,” noting the rise of China as a geopolitical power, and that global leadership in the context of the G20 was “lacking internal unity with many of its members in bilateral antagonisms.”

In other words, the global elite is infighting amongst itself and this is hampering efforts to rescue the agenda for global government, which seems to be failing on almost every front.

Brzezinski then explained another significant factor in that, “For the first time in all of human history mankind is politically awakened – that’s a total new reality – it has not been so for most of human history.”

Well they sure didn't waste any time eviscerating Rand Paul! The Howdy Doody press office gets a buzzing, AIPAC's Wolf Blitzer starts grilling him about race on CNN along with sanyahim Bill Kristol on Faux Noise and now stop on the Olberman-Maddow trio so now we know it, Paul is against the Civil Rights Bill, he's against illegal immigration, he's against the Americans with Disabilities Act, he's against foreign aid, and wars, worst of all aid to Israel....
So now the only rhetorical question for the media bobbleheads to ask remains, "Will he withdraw from the race?" This has, is and will be done to every single candidate who is not 100% Kosher approved. The only "change" you gonna get from the ballot box is Howdy Doody, Rahmbo Emanuel type "change."

Hi All,

URGENT!!

This might be very important. Some group on the internet has come up with a potential remedy to the Mexican Gulf oil disaster.

In summary, in my own words:

BP is preparing a so called 'Top Kill'
A very knowledgeable group on the Internet is very worried about this remedy and instead suggest using a 'Top Slurp'

They have suggested this idea already to BP through official channels, but the more this idea is 'pushed' the better IMHO.

I include an excerpt from this expert discussion that I have been following closely for weeks now:

http://www.flickr.com/photos/uscgd8/4551846015/page9/

Petroleum Engineer1 says:

Just occured to me to produce up the choke and kill line if the top kill is deemed unfeasible. Horizon: you hate the top kill. How about the "top flow"? And the flow from the 2" valve On the capped end of the drill pipe, and the existing straw production and perhaps we could out produce the well from other spill points.

----

Please spread 'far and wide'

Thanks,


Erik

(1 of 3) I was ready to leave praise for another eloquent post, but then I saw you defend freemasonry? Not evil? You do know that only the top ranks know the TRUE purpose and that they admit to LYING to ALL lower ranks about the true meaning of their information as well as their full agenda of their (LUCIFERIAN) SECRET SOCIETY. As in LET'S HIDE ALL TRUTH TO EVERYONE BUT THOSE WHO ARE OPERATING UNDER THE MASON ONUS. You do realize the QUEEN OF ENGLAND is the HEAD of all interntational freemasonry? That's right it's lies in the service of the 2nd oldest (2nd to Vatican) DICTATORSHIP/HEGEMONIC EMPIRE IN THE WORLD. Anywhere evil can be found in the world you will find members of this supposedly benevolent cabal.
All you have to do is listen to their own lies "conspiracy theories are never true" - listen to them parrot it over and over hoping you'll ignore that their entire organization IS a CONSPIRACY - a vast crime network with judges and police and politicians to cover up their robbings and murders. This evil institution's acts dwarf anything done by that desert parking lot Israel. And you seriously defend this in any way merely because they happen to be the hidden repository for information HIDDEN FROM MANKIND FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS? And what do they do with this information? THEY KEEP MANKIND DOWN, keep us as slaves to their masters, ensure the masses are deceived, and most importantly handle the coverups of every crime they commit through the positions that they acquire through the evil throngs of their organization combined with the hidden knowledge that you praised them for having.
This is why I have no hope at all, even the people who's job it will be to BATTLE THESE DEMONS don't even know whats staring them right in the face. You don't know your enemy, you have snuggled up against him and thanked him for keeping the real nature of the world form you. Oh I'm sure I'll get the standard lecture about not knowing enough about poor hero Manly P Hall. Guess what? I know he's a Mason so I know his words are strewn with half-truths BECAUSE THERE IS NOT AN HONEST BONE IN ANY LUCIFERIAN'S BODY, and thus not in any corrupt lying Mason's heart either.
I admonish you for your membership in a secret society. You have all the potential in the world and you are selling out, period (by merely giving these groups anything but proper condemnation). These secret societies are secret because if the world knew what they were up to they would spare no expense at hunting down every last memmber and finally give them the come-uppance they deserve in PUBLIC for the crimes against manking that they continue to perpetrate to this very hour hidden in the ignorant blind shadow of the masses (ESPECIALLY PROPPING UP CANNIBALISTIC ARISTOCRATS), doing whatever they want while good people suffer in every nation on the globe. This group has had the power for hundreds of years to rid the world of ignorance and many other vices forever, but chose to profit from these instead and thus are enemies of the creator and every living thing which respects life and truth. (And for myriads of other crimes that I do not have the energy or space to go into, but I assure you the members of these groups are on the wrong side of the fence, G)

3 of 3 I'm sure I'll get hit at, I don't really care. People defending masons can not go unresponded to, and I won't hold my tongue. I'm sure you can make some incorrect assumptions about me like I imagine I have some about you as well, but this is in response to you telling someone else they are ignorant on a topic when you should examine your own beliefs and claims, G.

http://www.theforbiddenknowledge.com/hardtruth/uspresidentasmasons.htm

Masons will burn, I am confident of that. Even if they are "good" (THEY ARE NOT), keeping all that knowledge from mankind has produced a mountain of crimes so high it can never be measured. And yes, Rome laughed. I could have been a Jesuit and it was never considered - ITS NOT WORTH LOSING YOUR SOUL FOR INFO OR POWER , G


PS - I have had the no sleep thing you mgiht want to be careful as it can sliply quickly into hypermania, and could def. affect your judgement on things like Manly LMAO. Thats a mason thing, truth being a symptom of mental defection in the "profane" right, G? Or we just "don't know enough." Oh? Why don't you tell us then? Oh, its forbidden OK OK. Your bound by death oath? But hey what do a group of angels and saints like the masons need a death oath for?

2 of 3 "You ought to ask yourself how you know anything at all if you didn't read about the subjects. What you are suggesting is that no one learn anything because you already know everything, which does no one any good if you think about it."

You ought to ask yourself whether if someone DID read this tripe and still utterly reject it as originating in the same place as every other big lie that they spread. How can anyone who believes Jesus existed be a freemason? You do know the whole basis of it relies on the myth that Jesus had offspring who are now the world royal families and elite? Oh , you haven't got to that part yet? Maybe you should read it and then lecture us about how GOOD these snakes are. (PS 33rd degree knows this as well as the LUCRIFERIAN agenda, yes Manly wore the robe and sacrificed people and whatever else they commit)

"The traditions you espouse are held in every bit as much suspicion and the traditions you attack."

A typical mason comment, I can't see how I missed it in you before. A recent convert? Typical of amateur truth chasers, who really are just wondering for power and something that feels good on their ears. Go ahead and go join the snake clubs, we didn't need your words anyhow. The movement is bigger than any one person but we have no room for false revolutionary masons in this tribe. We stand for TRUTH and masons for the opposite. The rest of the secret societies whichever you may be associated with are all junior to Rome anyway. Anyone involved in such a thing is a tool of the enemy, period.
Very disappointed, but why should I be surprised. Mason filth has spread like cancer across people that should be their biggest critics. Disgusted, really. I don't have as shiny or interesting of words as you but if you're "right" about the masons, then I love being wrong and the truth I type about their CRIMES will put this other frivolity to shame. Not that I expect you to keep this up. I doubt you want much more attention being brought to your comments amongst us real truth seekers who KNOW what the masons have been doing. I'll post this link again though I guess you'll think the founding fathers were all heroes along with practically every president, supreme court justice, vice president, etc

Snuck it into a back post AND are anonymous. Well, aside from saying I defend the Masons (which is a lie), instead of that I insist people inquire and make up their own minds, all I notice is that you're a coward who cannot stand behind what he has to say which means...? You have no confidence or faith in it. It waters down your argument to the point of no impact at all.

In a couple of minutes I could expose you to yourself just by asking a series of simple questions which you could not answer and which would also show you are talking out of another part of your anatomy than is usual.

Not much point in that.

Be well and good luck in High School.

It’s now official – there’s no actual shortage of Holocaust Survivors:

quote from The Holocaust Industry by Norman G. Finkelstein of the City University of New York, published by Verso in the year 2000:

'The Israeli Prime Minister's office recently put the number of "living Holocaust survivors" at nearly a million.' (page 83)

Statement by Richard Lynn, Professor Emeritus
University of Ulster, December 5, 2005:

"I've checked out the six volumes of Churchill's Second World War and the statement is quite correct - not a single mention of Nazi 'gas chambers,' a 'genocide' of the Jews, or of 'six million' Jewish victims of the war.

Eisenhower's Crusade in Europe is a book of 559 pages; Churchill's Second World War totals 4,448 pages; and De Gaulle's three-volume Mémoires de guerre is 2,054 pages.

In this mass of writing, which altogether totals 7,061 pages (not including the introductory parts), published from 1948 to 1959, one will find no mention either of Nazi 'gas chambers,' a 'genocide' of the Jews, or of 'six million' Jewish victims of the war."

Elie Wiesel vs Encyclopaedia Britannica

Wiesel has been one of the most prominent spokesman for the very sizeable group of people known as Holocaust survivors. Wiesel has chaired the US Holocaust Memorial Council and has been the recipient of a Congressional Gold Medal and Nobel Peace Prize..

Time Magazine, March 18 1985:

‘How had he survived two of the most notorious killing fields [Auschwitz and Buchenwald] of the century? "I will never know" Wiesel says. "I was always weak. I never ate. The slightest wind would turn me over. In Buchenwald they sent 10,000 to their deaths every day. I was always in the last hundred near the gate. They stopped. Why?"

Compare this with Encyclopaedia Britannica (1993), under ‘Buchenwald’:

"In World War II it held about 20,000 prisoners.. Although there were no gas chambers, hundreds perished monthly through disease, malnutrition, exhaustion, beatings and executions."
