Welcome to Samskara Land

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

There are some fine writers out there that combine the finesse of precise articulation, honesty and courage combined. There are not many of them, of course ...but there are some and this is one of them. We haven't mentioned Mr. Apocalypse recently. What I would like to assure the reader of is this... Mr. Apocalypse is real and Mr. Apocalypse is coming and he is coming like the second coming, within the being of those of us, fortunate and unfortunate enough to live in these times. The second coming is coming in our hearts and Mr. Apocalypse is coming in our minds. It's like one of those dual threats on the football field like Rob Gronkowski and Martellus Bennett are going to be, only this qualifies as a dual blessing on the playing field of life. The avatar is bringing the light of enduring love up through the deep and hidden chambers of the heart and Mr. Apocalypse is playing that divine calypso rhythm on the sounding board of the human mind. It is what it is and if you can't see that by now you cannot be accused of being an early bloomer.

There are some bad people out there and you can call them misguided or deceived. I call them someone to be pitied or someone I am grateful to for not having to be them and to play that role. There are quite a few names, certainly George Soros is near the top of the list, even if he is a Rothschild buttboy, he is fully committed but... at that point you have to be committed or they won't use you; regardless of their deception, creations like Morgan Stanley, Rio Tinto and others, they were all committed. I sometimes see them as ranks upon ranks of doom bound lost souls in three piece suits marching in formation with the understanding that it is worth it in the short term to suffer in the long term and this gives new meaning to the vocation of hedge fund manager, or junk bond junkie. There are sharks in the water but there are bigger sharks around and Leviathan ain't no rookie when it comes to swallowing things whole.

I have to admit that I am stunned more often than not at what people buy into without giving it a second thought. I doubt even Leviathan could swallow some of these things whole but they do. However, Mr Apocalypse is on the set and if you can't see the humor in so much of this, no one will ever accuse you of being an early bloomer. If you can't see that all these vain- 'me first, you later, maybe...' false self loving dilettantes are being set up in a long con, then no one can accuse you of seeing what is right in front of your eyes. It reminds me of all the people that throw away the singly most important thing they possess and who also insist that a garbage filled empty lot is just that, instead of a great opportunity. We're all empty lots as far as that goes. If we only knew the difference between weeds and flowers and understood too that it is usually what we call weeds that have the greatest medicinal powers. There is good to be found everywhere, depending on your ability to see it. Welcome to Samskara Land. It's not just terrorists that make you wear a blindfold, especially when it is of your own creation.

I used to have a lot of friends, then it turned into an Agatha Cristie thing with somewhat less than Ten Little Indians. Real friends are hard to come by and friends with benefits even harder to come with... but when you get to my age you stop thinking like that or you will soon be dead or wish you were; in any case, what do I know? Maybe Hunter Thompson actually did kill himself.

Let's face it folks, the guys who do these things have crafted it into a science by this time. Of course, I work in an industry with limited face time. It is not like anyone is paying attention to the fact that Israel did 9/11 or that I have been saying it since I had acne; even though I never did; must be good genes, if you think that having your progenitor as a Macon dirt farmer who never got out of 6th grade is something to brag about. Well... all it takes is a good PR company but you still have to be able to afford it.

So... now we are hearing about the Saudi's again. Guess who is behind that? Well... I declare, it's Chuckie Schumer. Well, my goodness, I just have to see that Lite Beer commercial with Amy Schumer and Seth Rogan again; even though I have yet to see it in the first place. I wouldn't call either of them lite. Then again, when your ass is for sale, nothing is off the table. Aren't Rogan and Schumer both Pentecostals? I digress.

Right... right... quakes in Ecuador, far more numerous but of a lower wattage; quakes in Japan. I am guessing that the pollution went up high enough to warrant taking out Japan. Can I get a brace of Akitas before that happens? Could this be visible's idea of a spiritual Nibiru? I am probably digressing all over the map but that could also be the reason you haven't seen a posting in awhile. Occasionally I do lose my way, but at least I was headed somewhere in the first place.

Now... if my calculations are right, something is up in a big way. The only way to suppress a revolution is to confuse the people driven to it. Of course, divide and conquer is not a new concept. You would think, after all this time, that people would catch on ...but in a country where Beyonce's crotch thrusting can be confused with a statement about The Black Panthers, it should make you think. This is not Kant's 'Critique of Pure Reason' that we are talking about here. It's not even a fireside chat where Schopenhauer is mentoring Nietzsche. Apparently clear reasoning always leads to passionate reaction at some point. Am I digressing again? It is always possible.

I'm guessing that people are either lost in space about the dialectic or mostly comfortable about having shit served to them warm. Me... being who I am and not having more than an elusive clue about who (whom?) that is. Is it just me or is it getting warm in here? When you are really schizo and someone tells you to get a room, you all go. Group rates? Forgetaboutit. This is where season passes become relevant. I would really like to do something about the Dali Lama's Rolex. I'd like to melt it down and pour it over his head like that wild horseman did over the head of the brother of the Dragon Lady in Game of Thrones but... more digression.

Then again, you can sit in the front row of Eckhart Toll Booths lecture if you don't mind spending a few hundred bucks to listen to elementary hypnotics and look good around Ken and Barbie. What do you think Tavistock would charge me to learn how to do that? They would have to pay me a fuck lot more to go through it. Is it just me or is it getting warm in here? I would like to think it is the result of romance in the air but I suspect foul play. Well, I'm not going to hold it against Robert Cray. After all, he wrote this too.

But I digress. We are at the turning of the age. It is not my fault and it is not yours either. I am thinking about my friend Liz from LA. It kills me that there is nothing I can do. There is little I can do in so many situations and believe me... situations are coming. You will be horrified, shocked and delighted by what is coming, depending on your disposition. In the long run, it all works out. It might take awhile but it all works out.

I miss a few people... probably more than you think but in this hour of dread and uncertainty... in the early hours before dawn when I come into consciousness fully awake and I sit there looking at the terrible specter of my own face in the mirror of my mind, I think about all those great souls that I have known in this life and I just keep being inspired., I keep pushing on as I surely should. For all of you out there who feel like I do, don't let them get you down. And say a prayer for Liz and all of us facing an unknown dawn, of awakening and awareness. As many times as my heart has been broken, I never seem to learn. It is kind of like being a ten year old kid. I just don't seem to get it and by the time I do, somehow it is later than I think.

In any case, to paraphrase Bilbo, I love twice as many of you more than you think and less than half of you as well as you deserve.

I "get it" Les; or do I? You're all over the map, topographic or otherwise, in this one. Similar to the glut of earthquakes this past week or so. Consider me a friend even though we've never met. I come back to dogs and tbe "dog poet" time after time. We had a trivial misunderstanding in the past you and I. Eckhart Tolle...Yeah,
"The Power of Now", really doesn't merit further comment, yet here I go. I 'believe' he is a product, scripted and tailored to deliver a milquetoast "spirituality". It's unfair of me to pick on just "his" philosophy. He mentions the "holocaust" and communism in "A New Earth" as being the two greatest tragedies of the 20th century. Yet the power of "now" in Palestine for instance, eludes his analysis. Let's apply his philosophy to a parent who has just lost his child to the IDF. Read this in that pseudo munchkin-voice of his: "Well, perhaps the situation doesn't need to change, but only your reactions to it."
Or, he could try saying the same to some "holocaust survivor" seeking financial reparations. Contrast the two examples. Who has a the greater need or right to "rage against the machine"..."now"?
Although my example is short, a thorough deconstruction of Tolle's MO is only going to draw me into a quicksand of negativity that I simply can't afford right "now". "Now" is in inadequate word, basically because it doesn't really exist. "Now" attempts to freeze the continuum. Although we adopt it for convenience sake.
Please be well.

And what's up with Pearl Jam, Springsteen, and Boston? They don't really step up to the plate regarding 9/11, Palestine, etc. Yet they're all too willing to lose concert revenues over trannys et al using bathrooms of their choice. Remember Corp. Klinger from M*A*S*H who sought a discharge from the military under the guise of being "crazy"; a crazy cross-dresser? Oh the irony of his name! :)
He attempted to cling to a false "corporal" reality to break the rules. This, along with election campaigns are diversions.

That is why I have no respect for any of them. These days I pretty much only respect myself.

Great stuff Vis....
"Yet they're all too willing to lose concert revenues over trannys et al using bathrooms of their choice." I hear Ringo Starr (who he?) has joined the boycott over the North Carolina bill HB2...silly old fart.

I will say that something is definitely 'up'.

On the good side, there is energy flowing like no tomorrow (grin). So many woo-woo things are going-on that they are running-together in my mind. It feels like finally cresting a hill to see into the next valley.

On the bad side, there is a recent upsurge of senior Players in the aethers. (Bad Guys.) I guess that these were the crafty ones that eluded the sweep down through the levels. That they are coming-out now is interesting. The ones 'before' were self-confident to a fault; these 'late-show-ers' seem to be like repairing cracks in a dike. Focused, but scared. Of course, they get Cleaned just like the earlier batch. It is just Very Busy at the moment...

Something in me is like that ten-year-old kid, just before a Birth Day or Christ Mass. Excitement, even with so much 'up in the air'...

Best Wishes,
Ray B.

is a hypnotic digression a regression or a dighypnosion?
for whom do the tolles belle?
much apoo about something?
were those those large steel beams from what was left of the towers just bending over backwards like what was left of the workers who got the warnings and forever hold their pieces?
how many Ringos must a clown jump through before he gets his tradie card?
and how many shakespearian plays must an illiterate peasant publish before he calls himself The Bard?
the answer my friend is blowin' in the Fukushima wind.. [repeat ad nausea]

Dear Mr. V
Tears were rolling down my cheeks more than once whilst reading this post. There were also differing reasons for my tears, of course, for your dear friend Liz. My condolences.
Thank you sir. Your perspective warms my heart. i suppose this might be your hot flashes. Universal warmness from many people makes Les Visible more hot.
Thanks always, and please know you have friends everywhere, they just don't all know it yet!!

Thanks for the excellent Dobie Gray link. That song has some healing power, and it was great to hear it this morning.

How Do You Feel when depressed?

When frustration takes hostage of my vision

Demanding a satisfying solution or even the final relief,

Since no one is near me, I get mad at myself.

Is this at least a moral win, to direct blame at self

Instead of innocent bystanders or family and friends?

Clever subjective ploy to reward self-control for missing it

Really just another way to destroy the one you love!

Any emotion we support with our objective attention

First shocks the local monkey in our being

When then absorbs all the energy before projecting it,

Leaving destructive ruins behind the emotional burst.

We are left alone in our hollowed out heart

To learn some better way to handle our state of emptiness.

The only thing working is automatic reaction to delusion!

Raging can be an entertaining distraction from time out of mind

But merely hastens the cycle of death in the end.

We bang away on our half-beloved drum because silence seems so lonely

We shout out to prove to ourselves that we are still alive….

When do we allow ourselves to listen faithfully to the One in the Center?

The One who holds us dearly in a loving embrace of living commitment,

Waiting for us to play along with a fully free will

Until we recover our soul’s true desire for complete union….

Dear Les
Posts like this keep me coming back again and again. Your reminders of Mr Apocalypse banishes my despair, brings me hope.
With reference to our earlier conversation I recalled something attributed to Governor Huey Long (murdered by you-know-who): "An honest politician is one who stays bought".
With love

What have I learnt?

I have learnt that whatever you put your attention and energy into you give life to.
I have learnt that love makes my soul sour while fear makes it plummet.
I have learnt that I AM my best friend and worst enemy.
I have learnt that being creative/positive builds my soul essence while being destructive/negative tears my soul essence down.
I have learnt that it doesn't matter who others choose to be it is how I choose to respond, or not respond, that defines who I AM.
I have learnt that compassion brings joy to my heart while judgement saddens my heart.
I have learnt that although the universe has many destructive aspects to it there is also an abundance of life to be found through expressing oneself creatively with love.
I have learnt that I AM a co-creator in an infinite field of energy who needs to be mindful of my thoughts, words, and actions.
I have learnt that you get out of life what you put into it.
I have learnt that while I don't know anything I feel my way through the maze successfully if I resonate with love, compassion, forgiveness, and refrain from making judgements upon myself and others.
I have learnt that my body is my temple which houses my soul essence.
I have learnt that ALL life is sacred and I AM on a sacred journey.
I have learnt that the world reflects back that which I transmit.

I have learnt much but the most powerful thing of all that I have learnt is that love is the highest energy in the cosmos and through love all things are possible :o).

God bless you all.

Luv Kazz

Karen Norman said...

PS

I have learnt that ALL energy is part of the whole which makes up this world and that beyond it, so ALL energy is sacred and necessary to perpetuate the process we call life.

Cheers Kazz

Karen Norman said...

Oops - typo

That should be 'I have learnt that love makes my soul soar while fear makes it plummet, not love makes my soul 'sour'.

I have also learnt that I make lots of mistakes, but that is okay because that is how I learn ;o).

Luv Kazz
