Dog Poet Transmitting.......
May your noses always be cold and wet.
When Materialism reaches a certain level, rage and anger percolate at the surface, along with envy and resentment. Sociopaths are both born and made in these times. The degrees of opulence and self indulgence go through the roof. Of course, you can take it for granted, in times of Materialism that the one at the rudder is not your friend and the system protects the abuser for the purpose of demonstration.
The addictive insanities of technology create a whole new theater of conditions. I read once that one of the things that destroyed Atlantis was the wide gap in privilege between the leader/scientist class and the workers. Measuring imbalance is an interesting thing because it usually gets measured in a projected sense but it actually exists in the minds projecting it.
Here's a classic example why one should refuse to allow themselves to be called a spiritual teacher. This Tribe member wants to represent Beverly Hills and a large portion of the rich drenched enclave that is LA. Not a day goes by when I do not hear the whisper in my head, "Mr. Apocalypse... Mr. Apocalypse" Not a day goes by when I don't see multiple examples of self destructive behavior on the part of people who not long ago would have acted rationally. Now... I don't consider this a crime. I consider it poor judgment and a lack of discretion. No doubt the poor fellow will have to go to counseling for this since, in the minds of all the pervs standing in judgment over her, she damaged the poor boy. I think it would be pretty difficult to find a teenage boy who wasn't wide open to something like this.
Yeah... this is all cultural stuff but that's what 's going on, except maybe for Assad having the full support of his people, while being damned by the people who want to destroy his country. This would be the Israeli owned western press.
I know that there are many of you out there who are experiencing degrees of uncertainty, depression and incipient angst. You could be having more trouble focusing these days or notice that there are odd thoughts and compulsions passing through your minds; not that you act on them (yet) but that they are present. This is because the cosmically condemned are engaged in a last ditch effort to steer you into a ditch. When I hear concerns like this voiced to me in emails, one thought enters my mind; do you meditate? There is no single more effective discipline available than this in these trying times. You can include prayer, which is just a variation on the theme of invisible contact.
I've used a certain example several times here and I want to do it again. The mind is like the restless sea. In the large majority of cases it is seldom ever still. It is stirred up by emotion. It is stirred up by certain thoughts. It is stirred up by certain visible and invisible cabals with a vested interest in induced chaos and disorder. This allows for the twin engines of plunder and enforced rule to go on at will. It's never been so pervasive as it is due to all the networking and ubiquitous media, as well as the attendant entertainment and soundtrack distractions and everywhere there is the subliminal and overt sexual programming pounding on the conscious and subconscious minds of the public which... explains all the acting out going on and which I often example here to give evidence of that very thing. This stimulates areas of human behavior and makes the weak and susceptible vulnerable to costly mistakes.
If you don't meditate or pray on a 'regular' basis, you're a bobbing cork on restless seas and at the mercy of whatever dangers may present themselves. It's a terrible thing to be sailing without a rudder. The cosmic tillerman is always there but not always engaged. It's one of those 'two to tango' things. There are things that only the ineffable can accomplish and things only we can accomplish and both require an interactive relationship. As Guru Bawa used to say in one of his not politically correct statements; 'god-man, man-god'. The relationship HAS TO BE in effect to be effective.
It takes between two and six weeks for meditation to kick in. Once it does your life takes on a whole new way of being and it is easy to know what the difference is. Once you have achieved the beneficial state, simply stop doing it for a day or two and you will see what I mean. In simple scientific or logical terms let me say that as a result of meditating, when you step out on to the playing field of life, you are entering it from a particular level of awareness and everything and everyone you encounter is affected by that level of your awareness. If your level of awareness drops, the conditions all around you are altered by that. If the level of your awareness rises, the reverse is true. You MUST have a daily spiritual practice which bookends the day. The idea is to get it to flow from both ends until the whole of your existence is saturate with it. This is the constant condition of saints, mystics and sages when they have realized it.
It is a simple thing. Any fool can do it, though, at that point they would no longer be a fool (grin). Why is it so damned difficult? You know what I'm talking about. You go to meditate and something comes up. It always does or... you forget. Something distracts you before the thought can enter your mind. This is the same thing that happens at the moment of death, when you are supposed to have the ineffable foremost in your thoughts for a successful transiting. There are entities whose job it is to make this happen and you don't overcome them if you have been inconsistent in your efforts to that point; or generally indifferent to them all along.
Your life goes on for as long as it does for one reason and that is to give you an impressive length of time to get it in order. Sure, by comparison with eternity it's not even a blip but in a relative sense it is plenty long enough. Day follows day and the distractions continue, crises come and go, or the dream is so pleasant it seems it might go on forever and there is no apparent need for change. Oh... but there will be. There will be but... can you?
To effectively get into gear with this incredibly powerful and profound process, you simply go to it first thing in the morning. The moment you wake up, you sit up and engage. This guarantees that nothing will intrude. Later, when you've got the groove operative you can go through the preliminaries of arising without concern that you won't get to it. When you go to bed, worse case scenario, you can always lie there and meditate in corpse pose. The good angels are around. They will begin to help, consonant with your zeal.
I cannot stress intensely enough how critical it is that you do this. You are making a deliberate effort to engage with the all knowing ruler of all things, who created the entire structure of existence simply to provide a stage for you to accomplish the ultimate discovery and contact. This is all life is about. In the beginning, the ineffable was single and alone unto itself, brimming with the limitless potentiality of creation. Let there be light! So it was that the ineffable made the visible and invisible universe out of itself and populated it with itself and then interpenetrated it with itself. You might say that the ineffable fell to the ground and broke into billions of pieces and all that followed was the process of the ineffable gathering all of those pieces back together.
When any entity consciously seeks union with the ineffable they fast track their evolution. they hothouse it. On a flowering tree, some buds come into being early. Some come late and some do not come at all. This is observably true. Be one of the early buds. Of course, that's unlikely given the stage of the game we are at (grin) but... regardless, have at it with a will and come into bloom. Seriously, in the scheme of things there is nothing else of value worth doing. Everything else is a waste of time and... it hurts. It is painful. "All life is pain caused by ignorant desire." Meditation is like cruise control and it comes with shock absorbers; the really good gas ones.
The reactive mind is a beast. It is very powerful. It keeps coming back ten thousand times ten thousand. You have to be non stop at it. If you are, success is certain. The mind is your greatest enemy and it follows you everywhere. It is potentially your very best friend. One who does not have this special and privileged relationship has no idea what a wondrous and beautiful thing this is. This is the hardest time in which to accomplish this, so the potential rewards are commensurate with the degree of difficulty. Look! Look at what is going on around you. Look at what is reported in the media. Look at children and the aged. What does it tell you?
For as long as there is breath in your body, the opportunity remains. Seize the moment! "Success is speedy for the energetic." The ineffable said this. Broad Daylight Awareness will confirm that you are surrounded by the functional insane. By this, I mean there is the appearance of functional because one perceives routine and one sees the vast majority acting in accord with all of their peers, in the ongoing discord of this terrible drama. Step away from the quiet lives of desperation and seek out the one who is oh so willing to act through you; who forgives you in a heartbeat and embraces you in the same. The mind wants to tell you it's too late. The mind wants to tell you you can't do it. The mind throws up all kinds of images of your failures and works constantly to reinforce poor self image but... what are you imaging? You are the crown of creation. You are the ultimate expression and channel for the ineffable here. Simply commune and then act as if it were the ineffable doing everything in and through you. There's nothing more and Love is the fuel that proves it out because if you love doing it you cannot fail and you won't stop. Why would you? You love doing it..
