It is Not Easy to be Arthur Topham.

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

The more one gets to know of men, the more one values dogs.

Ah... so it is Memorial Day. Yes, this is the day that we celebrate all of those who were delusional enough to die in Banker Orchestrated Wars. This is the day when people still captured in the thrall of patriotic delusions, get incensed when you mention something like this. How delusional can one be when one has proof of these things in such abundance that not acknowledging this truth is proof positive that one is dumber than a rock?

There are no greater murderers on the planet than bankers. Bankers of the magnitude of those being discussed here are not recruited Satanists. They are born Satanists. One does not rise (or sink) to their level of evil and depravity in one lifetime. In another of life's great ironies, these bankers come in the largest part from the worlds smallest and most pestilential demographic. Is this anti-Semitic? The truth is anti-Semitic.

What is the cost of telling the truth? Ask Arthur Topham. There are quite some number of people that you cannot ask because they are no longer with us; having been promoted for telling the truth. Telling the truth will not always get you promoted. It depends on what the truth consists of. An example could be, “Yes, I killed him/her/it.”

I had considered migrating to Canada. There is a fraternal fellow there with a community, or what might become a community in Ontario (I think) but it was due to circumstances such as Arthur Topham has encountered that I demurred. Arthur Topham is a crusader. One might say he is quixotic but Arthur is not tilting with windmills that he imagines are giants. If giants can be monsters then Arthur is tilting with monsters in human form. These are the bankers who have captured and subdued Canada. Canada was easier to bring low, or to a lower degree than America because Canada is a more socialism inclined country and so the apparatus that is being bent out of recognition in Canada was already prone to the foul machinations of the carpetbagging, Marxist Satanists Bankers that infiltrated that country over time. Bring attention to their control of Canadian affairs and you will find yourself buried in legal fees before the courts that they control. As the Tribe manufactured laws of Canada become ever more and more Draconian, legal fees will be the least of one's problems.

The Seagrams and other poisoners of Canadian well being, completely control their catamite in office, Stephen Harper. Will the Canadians wake up to what is happening in their land? Will they tumble to the perversities being visited upon their educational system by this same Tribe of Predators? Will they awaken to the sexual outrages being visited upon the minds of their children and the shaping of their preferences by hijacking their prepubescent focus? Mr. Apocalypse is in charge of that. However, though one might be tapped by the force of awakening, though one might have their shoulders shaken as they sleep, one must desire to awaken or the nightmare will continue. One must respond to the hands of the cosmos upon one's person and that all comes down to whether the pull of the dreams of magnetized dust prove stronger than the call of the celestial realms. It is a difficult thing. The dreams of dust are everywhere, vibrating within the reach of the senses and the celestial is invisible in source, cause and residence but... not in effect. The invisible has its effect upon the manifest every day. It reaches from out of time into the world of time. Time is a form of gravity and that which comes from out of time, moves at its own speed. It may come slowly but it cannot be stopped.

This is what we must remember about the process of one age following another; everything changes. It doesn't matter what you think and it doesn't matter who you are or what you want, unless of course you are the avatar, or employed by him in some fashion ...but then what you think would be in accord with him. Who you are would be in accord with him and what you want would be in accord as well. Keep that in mind because that option is ever before you. The force of the avatar is ALWAYS victorious and sets the tone for the following age. It may not always be easy to see the truth of this since it moves across a large extent of time that no 'human' life can span.

Here, once again, is the power of “I don't know.” The arrogance of the human mind is breathtaking. Because of this it is often blind to the vastness of what lies beyond its ken. Those who recognize this truth can be informed. Those who do not recognize this are like a pitcher filled with water. You cannot pour more water into it. It is already full. For reasons beyond anything sane, many people prefer to have their minds filled with the flotsam and jetsam that bobs and drifts upon the ocean of material ignorance. One who has emptied their minds can become like one who holds a mirror to the sun. The magic and mystery of true light is of a very high order and the wisdom in it is not often possessed by anyone here. This is both sad and disturbing because it is a simple thing to empty one's mind and simpler still to arrange oneself in such a way as to be filled with the object of devotion.

It is not given to all of us to be permitted to reside in true sanctuary in the manifest sense but it is given to any of us to carry our sanctuary with is as we go. It is not given to all of us to exist in a blessed anonymity because there is so much work to be done and that work is extremely varied. Some of us are maintained in states of different limitations, in order to accomplish our singular vocations. All over the Earth today, there are souls making sacrifices for the purpose of redemption and demonstration so that others might be inspired by what they have done.

The problem with Arthur Topham is not Arthur Topham. The problem is that there are not enough Arthur Tophams in Canada or the world. What Topham says is true and it is the truth of what he says that causes the outrage among those whom this truth is concerned with. Most people are so consumed in the performance of appetite satisfaction that they do not want to be disturbed by anything that might take their attention away from this. The hypnotic force of Materialism is extremely strong and so there are very few of us that are capable of putting our hearts and minds upon the greater good. The greater good is not always accomplished by sweet and tidy behavior. One could say that this is seldom the case. Soft and sonorous platitudes and flowery speech are fine for those cloistered in ashrams and privileged engagements that one can afford the cost of. Idle dilettantes do not mind paying for the services of those who are willing to tout their exceptionalism.

Most people do not want to hear the truth. The truth is inconvenient at the best of times. It gets in the way of one's capacity to indulge themselves in personal pursuits. The truth is a torment to vanity. It can be a wrecking ball for the ego and one's sense of privilege. Lord Shiva is often shown as a personification of the truth and that is why he is seldom invited to celebrations, weddings and the like but he is often seen at funerals. We do not know which element of god nature will be invoked in us, should we be inclined to seek after something of that nature. We might imagine that we will be transformed into someone all wise, or someone powerful but this is not in our hands. We are a prisoner of the talents bestowed on us and must exercise them regardless of whatever risk might attend these performances.

We might wish for always having the funds to carry on our lifestyle. Sometimes even when we seek little for ourselves we still struggle to make our way. Why is this the case in such a bountiful world? Every person's karma is different and every case has primarily to do with the progress of the soul and this often runs counter to our material needs, such as we might imagine them to be.

I know very well the nature of being in extremity. It is never far from me. I live in an unpredictable dependence upon the unseen ineffable who chooses to make whatever statement it is inclined to make on each and every day. What can one do? One continues in hope and faith. It is all that one has.

It is not easy to be Arthur Topham and there are not many like him as a result. I pray that he will find respite from the less than tender ministrations of the beast. I am reminded always that behind every appearance of the devil there is an angel concealed and which only needs to be seen to produce the force of it being.

Into a Deep and Dark Mindinao Trench of Doubt.

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

When a man's best friend is his dog, that dog has a problem.

Saw a video yesterday about the potential for a seismic event in California. Unlike a lot of folks who come and go, this fellow has a very measured take on the whole affair.

This doesn't make him more right or less wrong than the next guy but... we'll know one way or the other in a week.

I mentioned this to an acquaintance of mine here today and he said, “Yeah, everybody is talking about that.” I don't know what this means. I didn't ask him for details.

In wandering through the news gathering sites where I go, I came across some mention of Alex Jones, David Icke and others having, 'heavy premonitions' about something big going on on the subconscious radar. Given Alex's fascination with the geographic complexity of his own navel and Icke's endless fascination with shape shifting reptiles and both of them with their larger than life fixations on self promotion, I don't know what to think about whatever it is they are thinking about. Yet there is a great deal of tingly speculations concerning the creeping unknown going on hither and yon. It's widespread and not the sole province of cigar store celebrities of dubious provenance.

Let's add in my own intuitive spun web trembles about a world changing event coming soon and no later than the fall of this year and the continuous, rain on a tin roof racket, about something to do with California that keeps pinging inside my head. I wish I knew what any of it means. Suffice to say that it is under discussion today because the signs are flashing on that Las Vegas strip of dancing neon that is the internet in wildly diverse locations.

Regular visitors here will remember how often Lady Nature has been mentioned on these sites of late. Prior to my hearing about May 28th, I hadn't come across any of this burgeoning informathon about groans, rumbles and possibilities of Earth Dancing catastrophe but... I have been feeling something too. This is just the first page over at Google. When you look into the complexity of alignments that Nostrildamus picked up on, it gives one an eerie slither up the spine.

Okay... I'm not a prophet or a precognition seer. I don't dream about world changing events but it does strike me as uncanny that the thoughts I have been having are mirrored in places around the world and backed up by specific verses of Nostrildamus; not that I have put a whole lot of belief in that particular seer, simply because of the obscurity of his symbolisms that are open to such expansive interpretations but... but... there sure is a lot of chatter going on, not to mention that the day after, the film “San Andreas” goes into theaters worldwide.

Walking hand in hand with all of this is the strange phenomenon of people wigging out all over the place. They are wigging out in our comments section and in every case it is either about fixations they have on particular doctrines, according to their interpretation of them and for which they WILL accept no substitutes, or it is about them not getting their due and endless degrees of tolerance for their acting out in a less than generally enjoyable manner. It's not just here though. It is going on in the lives of people I hear about and people I hear from. It is going on close at hand and far away. It is a clear and obvious manifestation of people being unable to deal with the pressures of the apocalypse coming down on them and into them.

Personally I am getting none of this, as my own life is still and serene for a change and has been that way for some time now. I was told a long time ago that the worse things get in the world the better they will get for me. That's comforting and disturbing and... as usual, inexplicable. Man! We are getting deep into the subjective. Let's see if we can dig our way out of it.

If California goes into the Pacific Ocean, it is going to transform world consciousness in ways beyond anything we can imagine. The epic scale of it will throw every other consideration into confusion or... highly placed negative conspirators will use the cover of this event for more dastardly doings.

If nothing comes to pass then this is all just a speculation shitorrama. Surely we know that given the state of the world, something large and unwieldy is on the move, straining at the bit, chomping at the bridle and pulling fiercely on the leash. Like someone used to say back before he went bankrupt, “It's Hammer Time.”

We've always been about trends here and the way so much of the world is trending now; good grief!!! Here is just one of the many absurd happenings going on in the world at large. This is one of any number of manifestations coming out of a religious psychopathy whose usual main focus is world domination. The level of absurdity is off the charts. How crazy are these people? Really, REALLY crazy. I don't doubt they fly in on private planes for dinner in Lagos. Well... if you check the latest news, it turns out to have been all fabrication. There's a lot of that going on too, so that you don't know what to believe anymore and maybe that is the point. Maybe all the lies and half truths are part of an agenda to break the public's faith in any consistency of collective belief, in the permanence of a shared reality. It seems that if you can splinter the connection between people and those things they have come to consider to be dependable manifestations of this and that, which they all agree, or used to agree, is actually this and that, then... this and that suddenly become mysterious things that are no longer what they were and there is a sense that maybe they never were. All this news about the ubiquitous corruptions of church and state, combined with the outright criminality of the markets and marketplace and the storm-trooper behavior of law enforcement seems to be about plunging the common mind into a Deep and Dark Mindinao Trench of Doubt.

We can't be precise and specific about anything here because we just don't know. What we are doing is putting all of these connected and disparate items out there for you to see how this pings off of your consciousness and what you get from any of it. What do you think? Is it all just a grab bag of coincidence and tenuous projections based on... based on what?

Search out that deeper part of yourself and commune. If you find yourself going nuts over your belief systems; if you find your ego in flames and possessed of a near uncontrollable desire to lash out at all and sundry... check yourself. Can you back away from this madness and bring these raging internal solar flares to heel? Can you let go of the hands reaching up from the broken earth to pull you down?

Think about all of this. How do you really feel? Can you put yourself into enough of an objective state to see the wackiness at work? Regardless of how justified our subjective self has convinced us that our behavior is justified, ANYTIME one is consumed with the need to strike out at others, one has gone wrong somewhere. It is not for us here to determine what that is and when it happened but... we can say with great assurance that no matter what the rationalization, this kind of behavior is not okay and won't prove to be effective. Unfortunately for the one suffering from it, getting out of the subjective and into the objective is no easy thing for those whose personal self is thrashing about like a water buffalo in an antique shop. Could it be the antiques?

Anyway, I'm guessing all of this is as clear as mud.

Let me close on a poignant tale of struggle and triumph that involves the former lead singer of The Persuasions; arguably the greatest acapella group of all time. Like many another musical group, the full story is one of tragedies and small successes; promises that didn't come to pass and a sheer and indomitable will that carried the players onward. Jerry Lawson is now in his seventies and some months ago he suffered a torn esophagus, which resulted in an infection that very nearly took his life. In the process of his recovery he made a connection with someone in the music business and the next thing you know he has released a solo album and been written up several times in Billboard Magazine. I see the hand of the ineffable at work here. I have been a fan of Jerry's and The Persuasions and gone to see them many times; visited with them back stage, sang with them on stage and in one or two parking lots here and there. This group had a profound impact on my life, mostly because of what decent people they were and are and their efforts to keep the ineffable front and center in their work. You don't see that very often. If you want to know more about Jerry and what is happening with him today, go to the right hand menu and click on his picture. God bless you Jerry!

Try as Hard as You Can and then You Let Go.

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

My goal in life is to be as good of a person my dog already thinks I am.

I'd like to point out that I will use links from anywhere based solely on the content and credibility of the article and not any past associations the writer may have had. This is apropos of nothing. It just needed saying.

We've been mentioning Lady Nature and her performance angle in the mix of circumstance. Here's more indication of her potential, revving the engines in the darkness of her garage. Her garage is where she keeps the heavy motors that, in better times, account for all the profusions of color, ambiance and atmosphere; not to mention the bounties of her larder, upon which we depend without exception because... what are the exceptions? Unless you live on sunlight and aether, you are dependent. There are very few exceptions, although they do exist.

Then, there are those messing with Lady Nature, for whatever their reasons amount to be. This is in the same country where they are poisoning the Karachi street dogs. Some countries have turned to a better philosophy and one might well expect the lady to shine on their efforts. Here lies a glimmer of the coming mini golden age. It's being brought into being by the precipitation of the avatar, down onto the physical plane. Avatar time is not our time AND... a new broom sweeps clean. The areas in need of cleansing are the astral and mental planes and... of course... other places as well. Across the length of extended time between visits, a lot of evil plaque builds up on the invisible planes and the cosmic dentist has to come in and see to all of that; not to mention the lacquer of Materialism that coats the sensory apparatus of the willingly deaf and blind. It's all about those principalities and powers in high places. Even demi gods can be corrupted and enslaved in times of material darkness.

So it is that some amount of terrestrial time can pass between the first exploratory probes and the conclusion of the cleansing, resulting in the physical appearance of the avatar HERE. The avatar is uniquely qualified to spot every trace of resident darkness and automatically dispel it. The avatar doesn't even have to think about it because the avatar is the highest light and light will banish darkness as a natural expression of its being.

The avatar is coming within us, wherever a suitable hosting vehicle is discovered. It will drive out of us all inimical forces. This accounts for the crazy speech and behavior that we are noticing on the increase of late. You might associate it with the phenomena of vomiting, as undesirable matter is driven from our being. You might think of it as a fever. It can take a number of forms. The primary concern is not about having to go through it. It is about making it through to the other side. Think of it as your turn in the washing machine; soak, wash, rinse AND... in some cases, repeat. For those with no consideration for this necessary labor, they are being soaked and washed in something else. It might even be the same thing, only with a completely opposite relationship to it. As we like to say here occasionally, the same fire that the sinners burn in, the saints rejoice and dance in. It is a cleansing fire. If you are attached to what is being cleansed it can be quite painful. If you are not, or you are cleansed, it's all good. Bathe in the light!

Modern existence is taking a heavy toll. We have not seen the full results of this yet. It is not only good things that can take time to develop, this is also true of bad things. Though is is not precisely relative to what is being discussed here, the black comedy, “Very Bad Things”, illustrates what can happen when you go down certain roads. Here is an example of of how really Topsy turvy Materialism has gotten. Materialism always results in the hungriest and most driven scavengers acquiring everything down to the last bloody nickels of human torment. It's not that they need it. They already have more than they can possibly spend. They are driven and you know by whom they are driven. One of the set truths about the human condition is that you are driving, or you are being driven. Take a look around. This is THE essential state of us all. There is only one driver but he does wear a mask when he is driving in certain directions.

Normal doesn't engage in things like this but normal has left the building. The majority of us no longer know what normal is. The shared awareness of what it was is being bred out of the masses in specific steps. Seen from the perspective of short term awareness, one does not see the ultimate direction of the long haul. Eventually one winds up in unknown territory with no clear idea of how they got there. Confusion to the left of them. Confusion to the right of them. Into the valley of confusion marched the six billion.

Materialism is a fever and a virus and eventually leads to bouts of projectile vomiting. Just ask the Romans about The Vomitoriums. Materialism is the very opposite of the Avatar, who initiates the process of cleansing and failing that, generates the supernatural fire. Cleansing doesn't always look like what it is, just as no matter what road a soul may take IT MUST eventually take the path of light. Why not take it this very moment? That is a compelling question. The spirit is willing but the flesh is weak and it is made weak by relentless exposure to Materialism. Ironically, the flesh is not weak, is it? The pull of that magnetism is very strong. Otherwise the spirit would prevail and it does, here and there.

The single critical feature to keep uppermost in the mind is, 'don't give up'. Don't give up. If you do not give up you cannot fail. It doesn't matter how low you have fallen or what dark entities may presently feed on you. The power of the ineffable is immeasurably greater than all the forces of darkness that have existed through eternity. Faith increases in density and volume, according to the intensity of its employment. Eventually it sweeps every obstacle aside as if it were nothing, which, is just what it is because every obstacle only has its level of force according to one's faith in it as well. Of course you can't move certain obstacles but that isn't your job. Call in an expert.

I put a considerable amount of my life into realizing certain objectives which I have failed to accomplish. Is any of this worth thinking about for a moment? Absolutely not. No sincere effort is lost and these things have a habit of being realized by other means besides your own efforts. What is not meant to be is not meant to be. Do any of these personal accomplishment come anywhere near the accomplishment of The Great Work? No. Then again. It depends on what your priorities are. At the risk of being redundant in a good way; “Where your treasures are, there is your heart also.”

No matter how detached any of us might be from the fruits of our efforts, there are muses that attend our creations. Failing that, there are demons. Everything is inspired by something. The quality of your being is determined by the quality and direction of your thought. Regardless of any fame or fortune that might attend any of it, it has its impact on the world around you. There are very large invisible audiences that watch us at work. We are a TV show in certain quadrants. Live as if entire worlds were watching you for they very well might be.

Every arriving day is a new life and every sleep is a form of death. Adjust your priorities according to this understanding and things will go well for you.

It Could be Vegas and it could be Varanasi.

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

“We long for an affection altogether ignorant of our faults. Heaven has accorded this to us in the uncritical canine attachment.”

Katy said something over at the most recent Origami about how people are all stressed out about the coming trials and tribulations. Doubtless there will be some. I tend to agree with what her comment implies. All my preparations are about transforming myself into a better person. I am sorry it took so long but the terrain was seriously inhospitable and fraught with ambush and pitfalls, not to mention the occasional pratfall. Like we tend to believe here, it's not how you got there, it's whether you got there. We are, of course, defined by our intrinsic nature; to the degree that we allow it to hold sway. It is what it is. It could be Vegas and it could be Varanasi. It could be up and it could be down and it could be in and it could be out. The first verse, or chapter, or whatever they are called in The Way of Life by Lao Tzu says;

Existence is beyond the power of words
To define:
Terms may be used
But are none of them absolute.
In the beginning of heaven and earth there were no words,
Words came out of the womb of matter;
And whether a man dispassionately
Sees to the core of life
Or passionately
Sees the surface,
The core and the surface
Are essentially the same,
Words making them seem different
Only to express appearance.
If name be needed, wonder names them both:
From wonder into wonder
Existence opens.

I am mostly focusing on this portion-

And whether a man dispassionately
Sees to the core of life
Or passionately
Sees the surface,
The core and the surface
Are essentially the same,
Words making them seem different
Only to express appearance.

What does that mean? Think about it. To quote a Beatle; “Your inside is out and your outside is in.” Hmmm, indeed. It makes you think. It is judgments made on an imperfect knowledge of life that gets us into trouble and confusion. Spiritual purists think that everyone else is wrong and only they are right. Hedonists don't want to miss a moment of their temporary paradise in flesh. Mystics want a god that is not themselves but who can manifest or appear to or in them. Atheists want to be the sole authority. That's funny, given how very little they know. The reach of possible knowledge is like the oceans that surround us. Each of us are like cups and can contain only so much, then it overflows, which is a good thing, depending on what it is that is overflowing. There is nothing that the ineffable does not know, except what it chooses not to know. For instance; such as seeing us in our possibilities for improvement as well as our essential beauty and turning a blind eye to our failing, more often than we might think. It is not so much god who needs to forgive us as it is us who need to forgive ourselves. What makes the latter so much more difficult than it might be is our need to pass judgment on everything and everyone else. We all do it. It is a very hard habit to break, take it from me.

As complex as it can all seem, especially in these bewildering times, it is really quite simple. It comes down to one's level of commitment and what one is committed to. It comes down to intention and consistency of determination. Either you are in for the long haul or not and IT IS a long haul. In some cases, for those who need to keep coming back here millions of times, it is a very, very long haul. I couldn't do it. Or... have I done and just don't know? Somehow I don't think so.

How do you prepare for the looming shadow of world dysfunction? Do you turn into a squirrel? Do you go into packrat or magpie mode? Do you make sure you can afford whatever you need or want by having the funds to purchase them at whatever the cost? The thought crosses my mind but I am just not motivated that way. My existence is in other hands; saner and safer hands than my own. This is my area of preparation. If you are valuable to the ineffable then the ineffable looks at you as an investment and will protect it. Of course, we are all valuable but many of us have reduced our value. Rather than elaborate on that I will leave it for your reflection. As Lao Tzu also says;

Be utterly humble
And you shall hold to the foundation of peace.
Be at one with all these living things which, having arisen and flourished,
Return to the quiet whence they came,
Like a healthy growth of vegetation
Falling back upon the root.
Acceptance of this return to the root has been called 'quietism,'
Acceptance of quietism has been condemned as 'fatalism.'
But fatalism is acceptance of destiny
And to accept destiny is to face life with open eyes,
Whereas not to accept destiny is to face death blindfold.
He who is open-eyed is open-minded-
He who is open-minded is open-hearted,
He who is open-hearted is kingly,
He who is kingly is godly,
He who is godly is useful,
He who is useful is infinite,
He who is infinite is immune,
He who is immune is immortal.

I probably revere Lao Tzu more than any other luminous visitor here, except for Jesus Christ and of course, Krishna ...but I think they were pretty much the same. Lao Tzu's simplicity and integrity just breaks my heart with the purity and clarity of his voice. I consider being of service as the highest station I can aspire to. We don't all serve perfectly. Those so identified are very few and far between but however we may serve, it does not pass unnoticed and it all has an effect like Lao Tzu also said-

A man's work, however finished it seem,
Continues as long as he live;
A man, however perfect he seem,
Is needed as long as he live:
As long as truth appears falsity,
The seer a fool,
The prophet a dumb lout,
If you want to keep warm keep stirring about,
Keep still if you want to keep cool,
And in all the world one day no doubt
Your way shall be the rule.


When I was very young, I used to take that great LSD and then sit for hours reading this book; the Witter Bynner translation of The Way of Life. I wanted to imprint it on my consciousness. In hindsight, it does not seem that I was really effective at that but... I tried (uh oh... sorry to say I have noticed a great deal of subjectivity in this posting, please forgive me.:).

If the world scorns you and is as dismissive as it usually is, when greeted with speaking of the one ...and if the organized religion bully boys hold you in contempt, then you are going the right way. Here's how it works. Some get all manner of honors and praise from the temporal establishment, to which they also give their fealty and allegiance. Some get next to nothing here but please remember, “as above so below”. That can mean a lot of things. It can mean that if you don't get it here, you get it somewhere and if you get it here you might not get it anywhere else. Of course, some of us aren't looking for it here or elsewhere. It is sufficient that we have done our duty. We all have duties, though we may be unaware of them and not even get anywhere near performing them. Am I my brothers keeper? Everyone answers that question in their own way.

Most of us do not look forward to the tests and trials that come our way in our journey through here. Yet each of us must admit that these things have shaped us into what we are. We are none of us what we were. We are all what we are and... that continues until all of the trappings and concealment's have been burned away in the crucible of experience. We only become what we already are in essence but we are all cloaked from ourselves and each other by the camouflage of what we are not. For some, the experience here is about even more concealment and artifice. It is the singular soul who is fully disenchanted with all of that and seeks only to know and be known as they truly are; 'to know, to will, to dare and to keep silence'. These are the powers of the Sphinx and some of us are Sphinxes; .“To attain the SANCTUM REGNUM, in other words, the knowledge and power of the Magi, there are four indispensable conditions--an intelligence illuminated by study, an intrepidity which nothing can check, a will which cannot be broken, and a prudence which nothing can corrupt and nothing intoxicate. TO KNOW, TO DARE, TO WILL, TO KEEP SILENCE--such are the four words of the Magus, inscribed upon the four symbolical forms of the sphinx.”

Well, as might be assumed by that, this sort of thing is not for dilettantes and weekend warriors. It's full on or it is not at all and there is that special feature all too often overlooked by those who put too much faith in and place too much importance on their own abilities. I will illustrate that with a personal anecdote (at the risk of being subjective again). Yesterday I was doing my workout, which I have been at with real zeal now for a month or two and yesterday I was not initially drawn to do it but then I noted I was doing it and that nothing was going to stop me from doing it and I said to myself, “Wow! I'm really committed to this.” Immediately a voice came into my mind and said, “No, I am really committed to this. You are just along for the ride.”

“Everybody's got something to hide except for me and my monkey.”

Be well...
