Hitching on the Wrong Side of Humiliation Road.

I am going to be giving a metaphysical talk with some demonstration of techniques and a short musical performance in the next few weeks in Zurich at a hall. Please email me or comment if you are coming so we have an idea of scale. Thank you to those of you who have already responded.



Dog Poet Transmitting.......

May your noses always be cold and wet.

Ludicrous, thy name is Media. Boy, are they getting desperate and anxious too. Look at who the many fans are, which are spoken of in the title and if you already know who the organization listed represents, it won’t come as much of a surprise. Wouldn't you think there would be more... supporters? They’re finally on the last gasping edge of Humiliation Road. What a world! Well, it wouldn't be fair of me to hang these things up like used condoms on a laundry line at Venice Beach, so here’s something a little more entertaining. Interesting windows on the world to be sure. It’s good to keep in mind that the whole world is a hoax, when you encounter a hoax.

Despite Kalifornia’s inundation of rain, it’s being said it won’t do much to solve the problem and the problem increases, while generally ignoring the problems they are major players in bringing about, let it not be said that they bypass the opportunity to continue to educate the public, on those issues they use for the promotion of perspectives they want imprinted on the mind of the willing, or anyone not in possession of the capacity for discrimination. All this is no different than the programming they engage in day by day, to convince the ignorant and unwary to be canon fodder in their wars. There is only one war I can think of worth fighting in and that is the war against those who finance the wars against everyone else. They are deserving of, at the very least, the same level of mercy they have extended to others.

I had a most illuminating experience last night that filled me with optimism and a large increase in certitude. It is only logical that it would be followed by a day of intense stress that pushed the event to the sidelines. This is how things often go in these times and that is why I mention it. Although progress, in the shape of amazing leaps and bounds, is possible, so is the force of hammering opposition to every good and decent thing. One needs to keep this in the forefront of their minds so as not to be surprised and knocked off center by the incredible venom that can appear through the avenue of the agents of darkness. One should remember relevant portions of the ageless wisdom of Lao Tzu in these most uncertain times-

“Long ago the land was ruled with a wisdom
Too fine, too deep, to be fully understood
And, since it was beyond men's full understanding,
Only some of it has come down to us, as in these sayings:

'Alert as a winter-farer on an icy stream,'
'Wary as a man in ambush,'
'Considerate as a welcome guest,'
'Selfless as melting ice,'
'Green as an uncut tree,
'Open as a valley'
And this one also,
'Roiled as a torrent,
Why roiled as a torrent?
Because when a man is in turmoil how shall he find peace
Save by staying patient till the stream clears?
How can a man's life keep its course
If he will not let it flow?
Those who flow as life flows know
They need no other force:
They feel no wear, they feel no tear,
They need no mending, no repair.”




And that, by turns leads to this-


“Death might appear to be the issue of life,
Since for every three out of ten being born
Three out of ten are dying.
Then why
Should another three out of ten continue breeding death?
By use of sheer madness to multiply.

But there is one out of ten, they say, so sure of life
That tiger and wild bull keep clear of his inland path.
Weapons turn from him on the battle-field,
No bull-horn could tell where to gore him,
No tiger-claw where to tear him,
No weapon where to enter him.
And why?
Because he has no death to die.”




I sometimes wonder at those others who have also read these works and I wonder whether they read the words and the words bounced off of them, or if they thought them worthy of temporary memorization, for use in a dorm room bullshit session, or any of the myriad ways there are... not to get the value inherent in the mind behind these words because... in every instance where a book is profound, or possessed of meaning that reverberates through time, there are much deeper teachings concealed, that expose and express themselves in revelation and this always comes about by putting yourself in the mind of the author and... in some cases, the mind behind the author. A request for inspiration and an activation of the necessary facet of the intuition necessary, will seldom go amiss.

I remember a time about ten years ago. I was walking in the woods and I was on mushrooms and I came upon one of those signs you sometimes see on parkland trails, where there are colorful posters that might feature pictures of plants and trees, as well as animals one could encounter in the area. Perhaps there would be a cautionary listing of prohibitory activities and even phone numbers. I stopped to check it out and as I was reading some text, a voice came into my mind and began speaking to me. It said, “If you take the words into your mind and imagine that you are eating them, chewing and digesting them, they will become a part of you. Do it slowly and with the awareness that this is what you are doing.” This was accompanied by mental images of timeless works and I was told some of the same things I am saying in this posting and I saw how it must be true and that when I read works of significance, I should employ this act of deliberately ingesting and digesting the contents.

The voice returned me to earlier times in my life when I would take acid and sometimes sit for hours reading The Way of Life and sometimes other works. I was informed that this was exactly what I had been doing, in my own way... but that there was still more to it and I got informed about some of what that is. I do not doubt that there is much more I have yet to be informed of; all things in time.

Besides the books we are familiar with, there are far more arcane volumes and one of them is called “The Book of Nature”. You can’t find it, much less read it, without ‘her permission’. In order to get her permission you have to court her and you don’t even get around to courting her unless she has been impressed enough to want that to happen. She is, of course, just like the ineffable, within you. It is so very, very important ‘who you know’ in these matters, just as it is in the temporal world, when it comes to entrée and access, invitations and associations and so forth; as above, so below but oh... what a world of difference. Like they say in real estate, “location, location, location.”

I used to say to fundies, when I ran into them, in the course of my movements through life and they sought to pound upon me about The Bible being the only word of God and being deaf to any and all attempts at reasoned discourse; I used to say, “It’s a good book”, I would say, “it can be but... it was not meant to be a club with the intent of beating someone, or yourself, senseless. The only Bible I fully recognize as the living word is the one that is written upon my heart.” Well, you can imagine what they made of that. For some reason, all through my life, members of organized religions and cults have looked upon me as a dangerous person and I have experienced first hand, the degree to which they can take their aggressions out on one. No doubt we all have peculiar forms of Karma unique to our persona. That has been one of mine. Thankfully, over the last decade or two, this has backed off considerably. Most of my troubles of any sort are of the invisible kind these days but then... so are the benefits as well; most but not all.

For those who might have been confused about things here and elsewhere and things I may have said on occasion, which might not have been as fleshed out as may be desirable for some, I suggest you read this and that you read the whole thing carefully. I state here without reservation that what this article depicts is exactly what I have maintained for a while. Naysayers would be advantaged by paying heed ...and those who come around here, who may not have understood some of the things that have transpired and been said at these blogs, will find ample corroboration should such a thing be desired. And so on.

The Lao Tzu quote is so good and very nice in that format,too.
Interesting synchronicity on the Training Guide article link.
There has recently been a concerted, intensified effort to antagonize/disrupt/discredit a group on which I voluntarily moderate.
The group costs or sells nothing, and simply offers simple ways to relieve physical illness sans reliance on RX drugs, Big Daddy doctors,Corporate food, etc.
The group is growing exponentially with nearly 1K new members each month and people are healing. There have been some real shits there lately stirring the pot for 'no apparent reason' & refusing to loosen their grip without posthaste removal.
Maybe this article will be helpful in convincing the board owner to keep his head up, as he has sort of blown off my recommendations so far. He's a nice person who can't quite believe how the controlled opposition works.
Thanks.
Carmen

Visible said...

Yes, Carmen. the more people that see it the better. I wish I had been so informed on some earlier occasions when I was the target of some false flag efforts 'designed' to discredit me. I could not figure it out until I was informed on the matter. For some reason, things always wind up being explained to me somehow, unfortunately it is often after the fact.

Thing is, I was warned some time earlier and either forgot or didn't consider myself important enough to go thru the trouble to do it.

Vis-
You are right on target with this one. The world as it is now.....things moving very quickly here in the bible belt south. quickly downhill as the masses push pipelines everywhere they can...more $ must be good eh? Who cares that there are no toads around anymore- spray more round up and more chem. waste on our crops. at least they are cheap at wally world. some days I wish I could get away, but I know my place is here right now. I am more at peace with myself than ever these days- my little vacations are right here in my own area-visiting with lady nature -jen

Visible said...

Absolutely no details are given in this account, I detest things like this. What kind of a non informative article is this and... the followup? I hate being critical but i see questionable things from this source all the time. On occasion something interesting happens. Ah well, I'm only posting it because of the egregious nature of glaring omission.

Visible said...

As long as you got Lady Nature somewhere in the neighborhood, you've got the necessary connections being as she is also a connection too.

One of my favorite things to do (whenever I have a little free time) is to go to Yahoo News, and antagonize the paid shills. Whenever I see a post made by a paid shill, I make a comment that points this out. I'll write something like, "Do you get paid by the word, or the post, or hourly?" Then I'll paste a snippet from an article into the comments section that talks about paid government shills, and the war on words (which is what it is).

It's fun stuff, because they don't have enough paid shills at Yahoo News to go around. For example, let's say an article is about gay rights (something the MSM has been pounding lately). A whole batallion of pro-gay rights government shills will show up, and start calling everyone who doesn't want gays to adopt children, "bigots", etc. But in another comments section, on a different article, about Climate Change (aka Gore Bull Warming), for example, there won't be any paid shills there at first. And all of the public comments will be along the lines of, "this is utter b.s.; Global Warming is crap", etc. Then, the paid shills will magically show up and start calling everybody an idiot and accuse them of never graduating from the 3rd grade. And I keep pointing the shills out whenever it happens and people are getting hip to it. The shills will show up all at once and start trying to shape public opinion, but by doing so, they are bringing attention to the fact that it's beyond coincidence for it to happen this way, and it has to be a concerted, financed effort.

It's pretty crazy. They are scattered all over the Internet, but their ranks are not sufficient to really mold public opinion, the way they do it with agency-crafted MSM "news articles" and MSM "news stories" on TV. They can't control the whole discussion and it irritates the piss out of them. So much for being elite, eh? Thinking you are elite doesn't make you elite. A lesson that they will learn at a dizzyingly rapid rate as time progresses. Might doesn't make right. The elite actually murder people who are smarter than they are - first they will try to recruit them, but if that doesn't work, they'll kill them. (Tesla, et al.) They figure by killing people who are smarter than they are, it proves that they are smarter. Actually, it just keeps the entire gene pool dumbed down.

The elite are like those hillbillies in "Deliverance", fucking the unsuspecting sheeple up the ass. And thinking, afterwards, that the mere act of doing it makes them smarter and more powerful than those they are ass-raping. That's exactly what they are like - inbred and brain-dead. They possess no overt talent of their own, and all they can do is co-opt those who possess it, and then turn it to their own nefarious use, while pretending that doing so, makes them "elite". And they are also exactly like someone who take great delight in owning a vicious dog, and taking it for walks in public, so as to terrorize everyone around them. "Look at me, I have no talent, but I have this vicious animal, so watch out." I guess cops and the military are the elite's vicious dogs these days...

Did anybody else notice that yesterday was an extremely weird day? Everyone I encountered (especially women), we're complete and total psychos. I don't know what was in the air, well, other than that shit they constantly spray in the skies every day. But something was up...

AAAAAACCCCCCKKKKKKKKK! I clicked on a wacko makow article. I'm contaminated for life! I CAN'T STAND HIM! (Is he related to Alex Jones?)

We're getting super heavy rain where I live, being in the East Bay of kalipornia. Radiation levels must be nice and high for it, or so I've read. Of course radiationnetwork .com doesn't show it, but go figure. I've been really wondering how reliable that site is, these days; if it ever was. I note that none of the hot spots are ever covered. They're having major issues in NM and FL right now, but I don't see it on the site.

Well, what ever. Whatever gets me outta here faster is OK by me. And we will see if a nasty storm hits us next month that kills 50-60 people in Frisco like John Thomas. . .I mean Thomas John said. We can see Frisco from where we live, and it might be fun to take the 3 1/4 mile walk around the block we live on during the storm as the streets become rivers. I've done that before, and it's quite an experience being in the suburban hills during a massive rainstorm. Though the last walk I took was an accident. I went out and when I was about a mile away from home the clouds cut loose big time. I decided, the Hell with it. I was gonna come home soaked no matter what, so I kept walking to my intended destination, and came home after that. Had to take two to three foot jumps over the 'gutter' water every time I wanted to cross a street in some areas. It would be cool to go through that again.

Interesting you say that about yesterday, I DEFINITELY noticed. It was a foul and gruesome day, exemplified by my dog having one seizure after another.

Fine work, Visible. As Yogananda wrote of Sri Yukteswarji's teaching, they would read a few lines and then meditate upon them before continuing.

'Selfless as melting ice,'

Ah, the brilliance in that pearl of wisdom. True selflessness. To yield so completely to the divine only to be re-formed the following evening, perhaps to a greater purpose. Next to join forces with other patches of icemelt, to gently caress the hillsides and reshape valleys according to the plans of providence. Ultimately to reach the ocean of oneness that culminates at the end of mighty rivers.
But the journey ends not there. From the ocean, the spirit of life reaches down to swoop up what once was mountain ice, up unto the heavens, up unto itself. Then, reinvigorated, proceeds to fall, blanketing the mountain tops.
And the cycle begins again…

Nice Lao Tzu saying Viz one of my favs is:

The Ancient Masters were subtle,
mysterious, profound responsive.
The depth of their knowledge is unfathomable,
all we can do is describe their appearance.
Watchful, like men crossing a winter stream.
Alert, like men aware of danger.
Courteous, like visiting guests.
Yielding like ice about to melt.
Simple, like uncarved blocks of wood.

Here's one of my favorites, from Denard LaPierre -

The river of awareness
Sweeps inwardly
Touching the shores
Of tranquil islands
Within our hearts

We rejoice silently
For god is good
For god is great
And the wise man seeketh
Only to serve

Dear Vis,

Thanks for linking to The Way to the Kingdom (I have been taking what time I can to read through it, and it's marvelous), and for citing Lao Tzu. I have had Bynner's translation of the Way since the '90s, and have left it on the back of the john for the last year or so. I'm sure to take a little wisdom from it every day.

That is one of those books that seems like it can be everything to everybody. For example, I first tried to read a very scholarly, annotated translation as a teenager back in the '80s, and all I could take out of it were a few simple lessons: the hard yields to the soft, as water turns rocks to sand; and the highest man puts himself below all others, and thus all waters flow to him. I have gained a lot from meditating on those ideas, and over the years, as my soul has opened more and more to its eternal source, the Great Sage's words ever expand in meaning and import.

Another example of the cypher-like quality of Lao Tzu: I work with an American man of Chinese descent who is studying for his doctorate in mathematics and philosophy. He leant me another translation of The Tao te Ching, which I also enjoyed. Occasionally when we have time to talk philosophy and metaphysics I will bring up this book to him, thinking that he, a person who grew up with Taoist teachings and a martial arts expert, could perhaps share his different insights on it. Yet we always reach a point in the conversation where he doesn't know what I'm talking about: to my friend the philosopher, The Way of Life is a work of philosophy, while to me it is just what the title says it is.

To est: hear, hear - time runs short.

Love,

SJ Palmer

To All,

And let me say: until the Book of Nature (a personal endowment from Lady Nature Herself) finally opened my eyes to God's omnipresence ("even in the rock!"), and until Lady Nature finally forced me to recognize the eternal's omnipresence in my life - and her endless love for us, her children - all books were books of philosophy (read sophism).

Now some books are truer than others.

Namaste,

SJ Palmer

Thanks Les for more gems like The Way to the Kingdom.

While reading this book I kept seeing mention of a previous book written by Benner entitled The Impersonal Life.
I found a link and started reading and can hardly stop reading.

I spent over four hours reading yesterday and realized I was only on page 12.

To gain insight I ensure I do not move on until I completely understand the sentence I am on.
Some of the words were words I had not seen before and wanted to make sure I understood the correct meaning.
If I recall this was originally written in 1917 and words change over time...like everything else.

To sum up; Les Visible is the gift that just keeps on giving.

Thank you Sir.

Hank said...

You know, there was recently a story in the 'news' that told a profound story, and no one seemed to notice. The story was that 85 people own 46% of the worlds wealth. For those who are able to mentally project and extrapolate, this tells THE story.

First you have to understand that for someone to allow themselves to accumulate the obscene kind of wealth that requires millions to go hungry or die, you have to be a psychopath. You must also understand that with that kind of wealth, in the world that man has created, comes great power. This simply means that a very small group of psychopaths are running the world.

Governments, religion, the media and financial institutions are just tools for these people, to be owned and manipulated to affect their nefarious ends. You also have to understand that life has become unreal for these people. All normal purposes for living do not apply to them. They have satisfied all corporeal needs and desires, and by their actions have demonstrated that they have no conscious connection to the creative force. The lives of the majority of people on this planet mean nothing to these people, and they are driving the bus.

But there is a power that they cannot overcome because, like I said, they have no connection to it and cannot get to work for them. That creative force gives those of us that don't have wealth to fight with a weapon that they cannot defeat. Sort of a catch 22. If you have that force in your life you don't accumulate the amount of wealth that requires millions to do without, and if you do have that wealth you cannot get that power to work for you. It's the balance that the force imposes.

They can't get it to work and they don't seem to know what it is, but they do know it's there. It's why they go after those who deal in it. They array their formidable forces of government, religion, the media and banks against those who deal in and foster the connection to the force and even with meager resources it's more than a match for them.

It's why they hate you Les and all those who deal in the truth. All those who are indelibly connected to the creative force in the universe. They are oblivious to the fact that the only way they can win is to surrender.

Kill them with peace my friends, and may peace reside in your hearts.

Another good read. I also enjoyed the comments. Much fodder for meditation. Yesterday was also a weird day for me.

I am sure their are paid shills on the 911 truth videos, Kennedy assassination videos and lunar hoax videos on you tube. Truth being if the official explanations of any of the three aforementioned events was axiomatic, or proved beyond the shadow of a reasonable doubt there would be no need for the so called 'debunkers'.

Internet debunkers are either paid shills or they are obsessed. And obsession is always a symptom of mental illness.
