The Long and Winding Road of Love that Runs into the Never Ending Sunrise of Love.

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

Greetings and welcome to Smoking Mirrors. A decade and a half we have been at this. Long enough for me to have forgotten that the site was named after an Aztec deity. We've had high points and low points, large crowds and small venue, late night, art house blogging periods. We've been occasionally compared to people like Jean Baudrillard (I don't see it) and others; the examples being meant as a compliment or an insult. That was awhile ago in any case. These days I can't think of anyone we're similar to; only because few choose to write as we do, since there's no profit in it and a definite possibility of being maligned, censored and repressed. So... why would anyone do it? Exactly.

I do it because I am absolutely convinced of the existence of God and I happen to like what I have experienced, in my pursuit of the elusive character, who is beyond definition as a character; is both personal and impersonal and I like the personal side. It's like being a child with an imaginary friend, who happens not to be imaginary. It's very possible that the imaginary friends of the imaginary child, just referenced, are not imaginary either.

It's not from writing about God that I've been in danger of being maligned, censored or repressed. It's from the other subjects I write about. If you are going to write about a cosmic being, at some point you are going to be writing about the opposite character and you will most likely be writing about those who work for either of them. There has to be an opposite character. That's just how it works and... since we are in a time of more darkness than light, it stands to reason that 'the dark side' will 'appear' to be more powerful than the light bringer. The light bringer is whomever the original generator of light chooses to be his ambassador on the material plane. You've heard of the smallish group of shakers and movers, who have brought some form of illumination to those who are of a mind to seek that influence. There's a larger body of us who are less memorable, probably less efficient and certainly less powerful.

There's no 'hard to achieve' exceptionalism that attaches itself to individuals, in the larger group of those who labor in the vineyard of life and whose efforts are an attempt to emulate, one or more, of the major league, movers and shakers. God will take anyone who is willing and use them, since there are never enough who are motivated to this form of service. There's no regular salary. There aren't even any holidays or sick leave. A good portion will quit or fall by the wayside. Some will matriculate into demagogues, sophists, hypocrites or other form of erroneous manifesting. Being as one has to take the promise of their physical support and continuing existence on Faith and being as that Faith will be rigorously tried and tested... it takes a dogged relentlessness and determination to stay the course. One needs only to consider the world in which we presently live to see the verity of that.

There's an all out war going on at the moment and one side has the lion's share of weapons and material persuaders. The other side isn't even allowed to use weapons but... virtue is a power as much as it is a quality. Also... those who are sincere and known to be so by The Big Kahuna, have all sorts of assets at their disposal. There's a pun in that last sentence but I can't quite locate it. As I said, there's a war going on and it is just as egregious and serious an affair as any war you might think of. Here is one of the weapons being utilized by The Dark Side.



Perhaps you will find it amusing (I did) what the job title of one of the characters in that video is. It should flash on the screen at some point. Stark raving Insanity is being celebrated and each new outrage seeks to undo the one that came before.

For a long time it looked like those of us employed by the Supernal Realm were on the losing end of the struggle, but Mr. Apocalypse and other archetypes are representatives of that realm and they start out small and occasional and incrementally work up to their frequency of appearance and fighting weight. Then we begin to get glimmers of victory here and there. I can tell you right now, unequivocally that victory is assured. Individually we might stutter here and there and some will fail... but over all? It's a slam dunk. The principal can best be illustrated by what happens to the darkness in a room when you hit the light switch. Here I should point out that the light switch that is of the greatest importance is the interior light switch, at a location within all of us and it can take awhile for a person to learn this and some never do.

Anyone who has been following the news of the world lately has noticed a sea change in the wind. There are all kinds of indicators and you might also have noticed that the struggle on both sides is intensifying. This is all for the purpose of demonstration. Life is a combined drama and comedy. It's best described by those masks you sometimes see outside of live theater buildings.

Even though you will encounter people who will tell you that fate is inescapable, or that there is no rhyme or reason to life, that it is all random ...and some will tell you there is a God and some will say there is no such thing and usually both of them are wrong... because the God the atheists doesn't believe in does not exist. I can say that with 100% assurance. Also, the God most people believe in doesn't exist either, except as an anthropomorphic projection. What God is, is incomprehensible and indefinable and ever shall be. However. God can be experienced in his/her primary expression, which is Love. Love is also indefinable in any comprehensive sense (grin) but whatever Love there may be in expression by anyone, is regulated and/or limited by the state of awareness of the one expressing and experiencing it.

There are levels of Love beyond the awareness of any mortal creature and very possibly beyond the awareness of any immortal creature as well. None of us have ever plumbed the heights and depths of Love; not nearly. Most of us... when we start out, from whatever point of origin we begin to seek to serve Love, are sure to have mishaps aplenty on the way. The good news is that Love will refine us as we go. You can count on that. It will also take everything you have because that is the price of traveling with Love. Real Love is demanding of us in our entirety, should we be sincere in our desire to go to the fullest extent of which we are capable and Love will make us ever more capable of containing and expressing ever larger amounts of Love as we go. Love hollows us out for that reason, until all that we contain is Love, until all we know is Love.

No matter what any of us chases after in life, it is Love we are after, regardless of what we might tell ourselves to the contrary. We are all in search of completeness and ONLY Love can complete us. So, the good news and the bad news is that Love will take everything you have. The really good news is that nothing you have or can lose is the equal of the Love that replaces it. In fact, everything you think you have, serves only as ballast to ground you against the great and enduring flight of the never ending inspiration of Love. Every great and enduring artist is galvanized by Love and the unfortunate tragedy that happens to any particular artist, is when they settle for what their passion brought to them and then Love leaves them behind. Love will not stay in a selfish heart or with anyone who mistakes liberty for license.

There has never been, nor ever shall be anything as great as Love. What seldom occurs to many is what a protective force Love is. Anyone who has thrown caution to the winds for Love's sake has learned this, just as they learn that those who Love much are forgiven much. “Wherefore I say unto thee, Her sins, which are many, are forgiven; for she loved much: but to whom little is forgiven, the same loveth little.”


You do not need credentials or degrees to work for the divine. You simply decide to do so; keeping in mind that no man can serve two masters.


To me, it has been a no brainer (the brain isn't needed in any case) that Love was The Way. However clumsy and error prone that I may have been on my way to this moment, I never let any of that discourage me. It is a terrible thing to be born a poet, unless Love is your single objective. Then it is misfortune to be born anything else. God will make of us and give us anything we desire. He will also confer on us the lessons that attend these seeming gifts. Better we let the Grand Architect work without our interference. It is learning that single truth that is at the heart of our finally understanding. It is understanding this that finally sets us free.

This job requires no uniform and comes with no titles. There is no pension and there most assuredly is a pension. Here you will find an explanation of God's Pension.

No matter where you find yourself in this moment. No matter in what fashion you remember yourself as having been in the past. No matter this and no matter that, at any point one can take up their cross and follow the master. At any point one can become a fisher of men; as soon as one discovers the irresistible bait. At this exact moment, guides and masters are waiting for that change of heart to take place in whatever place it occurs and will appear instantly upon the observation of it. They may not announce their presence right away but they will most certainly be there and I know this absolutely to be true and far greater souls than I have said as much and better, a time or two before.

Spring is breaking upon the land, at least for those who have regular seasons; some of us do not... heh heh, unless it be hot and hotter, which is probably still better than cold and colder; then again, what do I know? You don't notice the seasons so much when you are young as you do when you are older. The bones will sing you a song or two about that (grin). In any case, Spring is symbolic of beginnings and a fine time to start, if we have not already.


End Transmission.......


♫ Pure Sweet Love ♫



A friend of mine, Bob Hitt (the astrologer) has had some catastrophic health concerns of late and any of you who might be motivated to offer a prayer for him... it would be much appreciated.

Dear Visible,
So nicely said, real poet you are. ....It is a terrible thing to be born a poet, unless Love is your single objective. Then it is misfortune to be born anything else.....
So true, and also the reason plato wrote in the symposium 2500 thousand years ago that heavenly love transforms anyone into a poet. Thank you for what you give our anxious souls, may all of us come closer to god inside us as you are teaching us to do. Amen

Love can also be the well source of an endless and unbearable pain. And yet, when one tries to put their hand on exactly where it hurts, one can be at a loss.
funny heh?

Very nice post. Loved the 'pension' story.

Diane said...

I've had this on my wall at work, wherever I've worked:

Money Can’t Buy…
A clear conscience; square dealing is the price tag
Happiness; happiness is a mental attitude
Sunsets, singing birds and the music of the wind in the trees;
they are as free as the air we breathe
Inner peace; that is the result of a constructive life
Character; character is what we are when we are alone with
ourselves in the dark
The glow of good health; right living is often the secret
Real friendship; it must be earned
Working for God on earth does not pay much,
but His retirement plan is out of this world.

It's my friendly reminder.

A line in a movie I recently heard says it all.

'You go to Heaven for the climb and to hell for the company.'

Vis - 'None of us have ever plumbed the heights and depths of Love...'

Mother's do. Mother's love is unique because it is unconditional.

Vis - 'What God is, is incomprehensible and indefinable and ever shall be.'

I agree, but that does not mean one can not know God up close and personal, because God moves through us in the form of the Holy Spirit once we have attuned ourself to the Divine. 'Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to discern what is the good, pleasing, and perfect will of God' (Romans 12:2).

'For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart' (Hebrews 4:12).

The Holy scriptures are essential, because not only do they provide the means to get us home, but they are also the only sword that can be used to defend ourself against satan.

'The Armour of God

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the SWORD OF THE SPIRIT, which is the word of God' (Ephesians 6:10-18).

I urge people to be careful not to be fooled by the false light, because those guys hiding behind the rock, who are creating the false reality for humanity by using media and IT to create a world that doesn’t really exist, are the same people that Plato spoke of in the ‘Allegory of the Cave.’

Do not delude yourself that anything but the light of day is the true light. Those who fall for the false light are trapped in the cave due to their inability to overcome their desires, so they are yet to reach the supernal realm. It is time to walk past those who project a false reality for humanity, for their own personal benefit, and climb out of the cave into the brilliance of the light. At first it will be disorientating and blinding, but then it will become sublime.

Be warned, if you go back into the cave to help others you will no longer resonate with those in the cave, because you are now of another world, where truth holds sway, not lies, so you will not be well received.

This is why Jesus said, “If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you…” (John 15:18-19).

God Bless

KIS this:

The primary principle and power that must be overcome, simply and precisely is greed.

Any and all groupings can achieve immortality by defeating that one deadly enemy of all life forms.

The hominid has adopted a monumental addiction to this the one simple principle that guarantees its extinction.

Materialism and capitalism are just one aspect of greed, behaviors and goals and emotions are all in the weapon belt of greed.

We wish to defeat the tribe, simple defeat greed and the enemy has no way to weaken you.


The enemy within has a firm grip on greed and that principality is the greatest foe that seeks your death.

All power stems from greed and all power is as suicidal as greed, get over it if you can.

All knowledge comes once greed is defeated.

All of time comes once greed is eliminated.

Yes I am one of the dreamers for to dream like such is the only gift I can give to help the hominid achieve immortality.


It is said that a great thinker once stated "I think therefore I am".

A great many scientists and others with exploding egos say "I think therefore I am RIGHT"

Therefor also the guest is to eliminate the false and what may be left is probably truth.


With Love to us (the hominid).

Karen; just so you know, I don't read anything you put here because when a person's sole goal is lecturing and oneupmanship, it gets tedious as can be. The only thing as tedious is scripture delivered from the Pulpit of Pontification. I realize that this will bounce off of you and have no impact whatsoever, which is explanation from another angle of why it is so t---e---d---i---o---u---s. This is a straight ahead, observational rending, with zero emotional content. It is what it is.

Silly me I forgot to sign the above, thank you for posting Les.

Karen Norman said...

Sorry for being such a pain in the arse Vis. Too many years as a mum I think. My cross to bear. I will try harder. I do love you, and all your readers. My apologies. I don't mean to lecture but I simply can't seem to break the habit. I do it with the best of intentions, because I care so much, but I can clearly see I am not in your league in respect to how I convey things. I put it down to the Divine's sense of humour. Personally, I don't think the Divine could have picked more of a defective vehicle, but then I realised, by picking someone like me, when the Divine speaks there is no confusion about who is doing the talking. Haven't you ever wondered about how such a defective individual like me came about all this knowledge? I most certainly could not have done it on my own. Without guidance I would have been lost in the wilderness, and there is no shortage of people there today.

Then again maybe I am just a really, really annoying individual, who is full of shit. There is no shortage of people like that in the world today either. The thing is, if I really do serve the Divine it would be unthinkable that I should hold back, and if I don't then I am stuffed anyway. At the end of the day I care enough about humanity and God to take the risk. I know what I put forward isn't very much, but it is the best a person like me can offer. I always hoped people wouldn't throw the baby out with the bath water. I refer to 'The Lesson of the widow's mite' as presented in the Synoptic Gospels (Mark 12:41-44, Luke 21:1-4). I just hope God views my offering in that light and not in yours, otherwise it's off to the fire with me.

A peace offering Vis.

Vis, one of the most beautiful pieces you have written. Thanks!

Vis: "The light bringer is whomever the original generator of light chooses to be his ambassador on the material plane."

One of the side benefits of learning to 'attach' to Higher Self and travel around with he/she/it is whom you encounter (or at least see). There are a lot of higher-level humans out there. By higher, I mean above shamans, saints, or sages. High.

Some higher-level humans are working for what I call the bad side (lowering human consciousness, or keeping it pinned-down to its present artificially-low level) and some are working for the good side (raising human consciousness). That was one of my biggest surprises. I expected an automatic thinning-out of baddies at higher levels. Apparently not so. I guess this is one of those 'cosmic' things which we will learn about, once we graduate-out.

There are all sorts of 'gradations' of these higher-level humans. Some are still in a human body, although way up past where they could ascend. Others have no human body (some form of 'dead'). Some are fully-functional. Others have been 'crippled-up' in higher-level battles, or forced into some version of 'exile'. Quite a menagerie...

The single biggest surprise is the number of these higher-level humans. Note that I said humans. These are not (real) Angels. These are not Devic beings such as (real) Elves or (real) Faeries. They are humans.

And this is on Earth, not floating around the Cosmos. Gives quite a different perspective on 'our world'...

Best Wishes,
Ray B.

That is the precise reason for this statement in The Bible " For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."

'Against spiritual wickedness in high places'

GregS said...

The Light Bearer is expected to reveal a little something particular about light.

We should be able to recognize the light bearer by the new insights that are revealed.

We are all made of light, as we are light beings.
Memory is a function of light as is perception.

Everything is the light.

Electrons and light are created by the same event, which is a vacuum opening up in the aether. So light and atomic solidity are made of nothing, literally, nothing, a vacuum, a void.

Yet, light can make everything, atomic solidity, sentience and worlds.

Light actuates perception.

The back-action of light is what carries both the function of memory, (as a mnemonic charge across time) and the soul.

Through the transition states of death, our luminous body accelerates to superluminal velocities to travel to other quadrants of the universe. This is also the same place we travel to when we dream.

So when it feels like we are accelerating out across the cosmos, that is because we really are accelerating out across the cosmos.

So, we are not prisoners here on God's planet, we are not prisoners of this world.

Everyone is welcome to stay but free to go.

We are more stuck here because we do not know how to drive.
