"Until THE MERCY AND GRACE OF GOD INTRUDES, at Some Point on your Personal Road to Damascus."

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

Chicago's mayor needs to pull to the curb and let some of the air out of her head. Over the weekend 67 people were shot and 13 of them died. Mayor Light-in-the-head said, “We are making progress... but we have to do better.”




The Coronavirus Hoax is seeking to soon challenge the biggest hoax of them all, which came out of World War 2. It's got legs and people, as people do, are buying into it. You want to know why everything that seems like it shouldn't have happened in this world did happen? This is why. People believe what you tell them, unless, of course, unless you are telling them the truth.


Here is the latest to come out of Florida, land of The Fish that Walk, the snails that are becoming condominiums and The Alligator Smorgasbord.



Finally... as was announced here several years ago (and several times since); guess who is running for president?



President Macho Camacho has thrown his pointed hat into the ring and the man whose girlfriend is auctioning off her soul has announced that he supports him.

West is courting the intellectuals, as confirmed by rocket surgeon, Paris Hilton, who posted her topless support (viewable in the linked Fox article). It was probably the evidence of Kanye's superb command of the English language that got to her; “yo, whatchu [sic] all laughing at?"

Hilton has long been known in academic circles as The Topless Philologist. She's also something of a savant at theoretical physics having dated Stephen Hawking for a couple of weeks. “I picked it up by osmosis,” she said. Hawkings said she should be credited with several of his mathematical constructs because her lap dancing expertise was “out of this world.” and had she not unscrewed his head and danced on the wires he could never have come up with them.

I am a mathematician myself as you might have noticed with one of my more popular equations; Materialism=Insanity=Chaos. People have taken me to task for pointing out that Hawking and Larry King were siblings but I was able to verify this during my study of the particular Hawking's theorem, illustrated in his paper to The Royal College of Edinborough, which was titled “The Suspenders that Hold up the World.” This pretty much blew String Theory off the court when it was released. Of course, afterwards everyone could clearly see the advantages of suspenders over strings but it took Stephen to put it all in perspective.

It is important that I occasionally engage the mind of the reader in other pursuits besides my relentless pressure to seek out The Presence of the Ineffable. The world is not going to go away anytime soon and so it bears paying attention to on occasion, so as to militate against the possibility of getting hammered by a garbage truck while thumb-humping your cellphone. There is an app for that which is based on the GPS model and you can get it online.

Okay... okay... before I get too carried away so that I actually wind up getting carried away, let me say that if the past few months have not proven out the veracity of my equation then the next few months are going to leave you with the appearance of a poleaxed steer. We'll be going from The Thousand Yard Stare to The Thousand-Year Stare. There is a point that comes to everyone. Sometimes it is to be expected and that is the good side of the affair and sometimes it comes upon you in an unexpected fashion and that is often less than desirable and that is when you find out that THE YOU YOU IMAGINE YOURSELF TO BE DOES NOT EXIST. Environmental and social programming account for the transitory persona that you identify as you. It is an ephemeral camouflage which conceals the reality of yourself from others and from yourself. Anyone who has experienced a full-blown acid trip knows what I am talking about.

'You' disappear and... at first... there is no one there. I've seen this up close and also experienced it myself but for me, it was a marvel of awakening and for many another, it was the scariest thing that ever happened to them. I've used a particular analogy several times here. Two people are riding in a roller-coaster. One of them is frightened out of their wits and the other is screaming with excitement.

I come out of the school where 'you fake it until it becomes real'. You walk like that is what you are and it becomes what you are. I could probably explain that better but no matter how I explain it, it won't serve to explain it. It is like trying to describe to someone what swimming is like when they have never been in the water.

For some of us, our false persona is like a stone set in concrete. For some, it is like a thick blindfold where no light can enter. For some, it is like a semi-opaque scarf and one can dimly perceive forms in movement beyond it. Then there are those who have a sheer or gossamer veil over their eyes and they can identify the forms in movement. The latter can go to their wit's end trying to transmit what they are seeing to the former but they won't effectively communicate it.

The whole world is an argument, going on between the people wearing the different sight impairments over their eyes. The ones who can clearly see are not arguing at all. When the false self is erased, whether by trauma or divine intervention, one can... it does not always happen but... one can encounter the eternal self that exists behind all of the masquerades and individual hallucinations of identity. This abiding self is present in EVERYONE. There is ONLY ONE SELF. You might say that it is a light which can assume any form for the purpose of demonstration. The you that you think is you is like a stained glass window through which this light does... or does not shine through. Those who can see more clearly are able to assess the whole of anyone they encounter by observing those areas through which the light shines and those areas which block the light. The human body is a miniaturization of the cosmos and every portion of the body of the cosmos has a symbolic and actual meaning. This is also so in the reflected particle which we are individually.

The places blocking the light are the residence points of our shortcomings. They are WHAT CAUSES US TO BE HERE. They are what torments us and what blinds up to the beauty of ourselves and others. There are those, moving among us, who have no blockages in their being and you can only see them if they permit you to. They are here to inspire and to guide us but... for the greater portion of us, our attention is not on such possibilities of encounter. We are neck-deep in the murk of the material world and it is collectively and individually driving us mad. It is one thing to go mad in the search for God. You have to anyway. It is a rite of passage, BUT... to have the world drive you mad, as a willing participant, is misfortune indeed.

At regular intervals, an unacceptable portion of humanity has been 'herded' to the brink of destruction and there is NOTHING ANY OF US CAN DO ABOUT IT on that large a scale. There is one who can, however, and that is The Avatar. The world routinely gets into an unmanageable fix and routinely, The Avatar 'returns' to set it right. This results in liberation for some and punishment for others, who are resisting their own liberation. In other words, it doesn't have to be that way BUT FOR SOME, it is.

The Avatar might well be among us now, or he might be still precipitating downward through the planes, sweeping them out on his way; dealing with those principalities, and powers, and rulers of the darkness of this world. He it is who attends to all that wickedness in high places and he has to deal with that before he presents himself here. What he does is to press these forces downward into physical manifestation where he can deal with them in the appropriate fashion.

This Avatar is God himself in the flesh. Here is what the Bible says about him;

“For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether [they be] thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him.”


You can dispute and argue and rail against THE REALITY OF THIS as you wish. You change it not a particle nor a degree. IT IS WHAT IS IS... EVERLASTING. I am not just saying these things, I KNOW THEM TO BE TRUE and the naysayers will continue to be born again and again as the dogs that bark at the passing caravan, until THE MERCY AND GRACE OF GOD INTRUDES, at some point on your personal road to Damascus, so that you might get rerouted to Damcar, or Shamballah, or Kitezh, or Shangri-La, or Pherylit, or Ketumati, or Pieroma, or Svarga, or Zion, or Cloud Cuckoo Land, or... what find you.


Those are only some of the places of legend mentioned as the end result of a particular path of spiritual pursuit, like The Western Pure Land or Brahma-Loka. There are, in fact, a great many locations such as these, resident in the cloud banks of the higher mind. Alternatively, you have New York, LA, Paris, Tokyo, Berlin, and sundry terrestrial locations and you can get to ANY OF THEM, simply by taking the road that leads there and if you don't deviate, you will get there. These times in which you find yourself, regardless of the present state of the appearance of tumultuous change, is the perfect moment to set forth on an unwavering course. See that you do so, in whatever fashion, becomes that road up the mountain which best appeals to you.

My friend here listens to Robert Phoenix's radio show on a regular basis and so it is that my friend told me about his most recent guest named Penny Kelly, who had a powerful Kundalini experience. Traditionally, women are not the usual examples of this BUT... in this age of the returning Divine Feminine, it is only appropriate that it should begin to happen. My friend was telling me about what this woman had to say and remarking on the fact that everything she said was near identical to the experiences I had been telling my friend about over time, which had happened to me. Just as there is a similarity in physical experiences, shared by diverse individuals, the same applies spiritually as well. AS ABOVE SO BELOW.

"Reincarnation, Karma and Suffering are Fixed Realities, Only Love Transcends Them."

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

I had to dismiss the last attempt at posting. Let's try a different approach.

As you can witness in the catamite media, devoted to the overthrow of all that is stable and human, people are losing it everywhere. This is not something they came up with on their own. They are being pressured by Dark Conning Towers, operating out of vibrational frequencies in the collective unconscious. This is the same medium that has been employed to spread sexual confusion and a pandemic of perversity.

It is a given that Satanism's chief export is Discord. Discord is proliferated by manipulating appearances. The result of this is Reflex Antagonism, Race Wars, Gender Wars and Culture Wars. The whole impetus of Satanism is to set us against each other and create an argumentative mindset and pervasive uneasiness.

People don't get here, on this plane of existence by accident. They mostly get here through Misguided Intentions. Unless you are motionless, every movement leads somewhere. Whatever course you are on has an end result. Two forces are constantly at work in the manifest; evolution and devolution. Individuals, groups of all sizes, countries, and continents are all engaged in one or the other. Things go up and things go down. Whatever you have convinced yourself of, automatically becomes a pathway to its conclusion and resolution. In other words, WHERE YOU FIND OUT. Certain inflexible rules are in force at all times. One of the primary constructs is Cause and Effect. Everything you do comes back on you. THIS I KNOW TO BE TRUE.

Certain fixed realities are ALWAYS in operation. It doesn't matter if one believes this to be so or not. As we said, very recently, Neither The Sun nor the Earth was affected one wit by the arguments as to which of them revolved around the other. There is NO ESCAPING the impact of TRUTH. You WILL come into contact with it, sooner or later. If you are true, it will be a celebration. If you are not, there will be an epiphany.

A fixed reality is REINCARNATION. It is a fact of existence. KARMA is a fixed reality. SUFFERING is a fixed reality due to ignorant desire. Everything that is manifest is evanescent, ephemeral, and fugacious. If you know this you are sagacious (grin) When you leave here, at some point following your departure, you will wind up in a proxy court, under the rulership of Twenty Four Lords of Karma, who oversees the process. There you will view something like a composite video of your life, in which you see, in inarguable crystal clarity, what you did and did not do. The KNOWING part of yourself will experience the meaning of it. There will be NO POSSIBILITY of dispute concerning the conclusions reached because, YOU WILL BE THE ONE REACHING THE CONCLUSIONS, You will, in effect, pass judgment on yourself.

You will then be given a variety of options, depending on how moved you were by what you saw and the intensity of possible responses it will have generated in you. You will be permitted to choose the number of lifetimes following that will be needed to adjust the scales of justice and restore you to cosmic balance. The fewer lifetimes chosen, the greater will be the degree of suffering.

Everything you ever thought, or felt, or said, or did is recorded. There is, in fact, an entity called, The Recording Angel, who possesses all of this information. As you can imagine, The Recording Angel has a number of other Devic beings who appear at the different proceedings. AS ABOVE- SO BELOW. The difference between The Below and The Above is that one is imperfect and the other is impeccable.

People who read this, whether they be skeptics or believers, are welcome to their opinion. We can only hope that their opinion is AN INFORMED OPINION. As you have, no doubt, learned by now, many people do not require that they be informed before they argue, in fact, the less informed they may be, the more intense is the posture of their argument.

You can think of existence as something like a Figure 8, of which, usually, only half is visible. It is a 'moving phenomena' and you are on it. At the one half you are present here on the physical plane. When you PASS... you move into the other half. The Figure 8 is a symbol of Eternity. This should tell you what the possibilities are for those devoted to their presence here. You must free yourself of Resentment, Anger, Hunger and Desire, Fear, and a host of other qualities that should readily spring to mind. These are all, BINDING AGENCIES and they account for your being present here and acting out in their various capacities. If you want to get even, you will be given the opportunity and The Law of Cause and Effect will attend to what follows.

Right now, you are being given a remarkable occasion, a serendipitous fortuity to make unbelievable strides, concerning the tenor of the vibration on your Figure 8 and even the possibility of stepping completely off of it. That opportunity is HERE and PRESENT. This is THE REAL REASON that there are so many of us here at this time. All I can tell you is what the unknown monk shouted out as he disappeared; “Strive Hard!” I know A LITTLE SOMETHING about striving hard. I have seen what it can accomplish. I also have some idea of the cost. One should not even consider such a thing as cost when dealing with what is priceless. Some of us HAVE or WILL attain Jivanmukti in this life and you will know it when you get it. This is the OTHER CARROT, which is attended by the OTHER STICK.

My job is not to convince anyone of anything. I am only required to convince myself and that demands that one Trust but Verify. Don't take anything on Faith, until you have established the value and the reality of it. Religion WILL NOT TAKE YOU THERE. Rituals, doctrines, and dogmas WILL NOT TAKE YOU THERE. Funny hats and sacerdotal drag queen outfits WILL NOT TAKE YOU THERE. Love Alone will take you there. Love is the primary expression of The Divine and beyond that there is only The Unknowable. Love is The Vehicle of Resonance between you and The Divine. Love is The Connecting Force. Love exists in various permutations in every kingdom of existence. It is The Attractive Force. What you want is Pure Love; Love unsullied by desire, artifice, or adaptation to personal ends. Here, everything is personal. In the Kingdom of Heaven it is impersonal. It is possible to be in The Kingdom of Heaven while still resident here. It is possible to take it with you wherever you go and to share it with all you come into contact with. There are those doing it right now. I have been in the company of those doing it. The purpose of those doing it is to inspire you to do it.

We are presently being victimized by a false contagion, whose intent is to subjugate us with fear and to set us against each other. This is one of the expressions of Discord, presently being employed by The Satanists. Let Love become your contagion and see that you infect everyone you come into contact with. Fear is The Enemy's greatest weapon but Love displaces it. Fear cannot exist where Love is present and so... it renders the agents of The Enemy of Humanity, powerless. This is no common love and ONLY those who have relinquished common love can wield it. This Love is conscious, just as the light that is The Divine is also conscious and one of the reasons he is called The Lord of Light. We are his instruments here. We are his hands. God is formless but he can take form; any form. He can and does take human form.

What I am telling you is REAL and TRUE. The self-important cannot acknowledge it because of the power of the false self over their consciousness. You EITHER recognize the indwelling divinity that also, simultaneously composes all of creation, or you set yourself up as a false god, whose arrogance is a counterpoint to the humility required of those who serve what is greater than themselves. So it is, in a time of material darkness that the world is filled with artless and clumsy impersonators of what they do not comprehend. Their abrasive and mocking laughter fills the world with a jeering imbecility that is all FOR THE PURPOSE OF DEMONSTRATION. It is a real tragedy when men become incapable of embarrassment and shame. Surely it will come however. It will surely come.

God sits and waits within us all. Carpe Deus! My friends. What does it mean that some say, “Strive Hard!” and another says “Surrender.” or “Let Go”? Life is an eternal paradox and all that is worthy of being said cannot be said. We are the statement itself and for some there is no sweeter music than the barking of the dogs as the caravan disappears over the horizon.


Every moment of time is precious. It is an opportunity to rise beyond the confinements of this world but the senses are captivated by the temporary glitter of temporary things. I would say, “You owe it to yourself.” but you should know that.

Doing the Motionless, Moonwalking Cool Jerk, Among the Dancing Bimbos of Babylon.

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

I've watched it coming. For me... after a reasonable amount of time, consciously watching the trend of the changes in the culture and in society, it has all become utterly predictable and it's all been an expression of or a variant of that inflexible equation; Materialism= Insanity and the more the primary intensifies, the more the secondary is amplified. We are now seeing the manifest turmoil that for so long had been internal. The dam broke and it was no better for the dikes and the levees. If I remember correctly, some astrologers did an astrological chart for the US during a recent blood moon eclipse (couple years ago or so) and the chart was near identical to that of revolutionary France. It explains the Jacobins now presenting as Antifa.

Please note that the COVID bullshit hoax was generated to get rid of President Trump. This has all been a defensive reaction by The Deep State, which considers Trump to be a mortal threat. None of the impeachment efforts worked. They had to try something new. Consider the connection between the masks of Antifa and the masks of Coronavirus and the greater profit for concealment and deception.

The most telling cause of the present chaos in these, no longer United... States is our collective abdication from “In God we Trust”. This is a subtle but powerful thing. For most, it is a slogan but just like certain symbols are, it is more than its appearance. It is all reminiscent of the meaning to be found in certain Biblical scripture; “O generation of vipers, how can ye, being evil, speak good things? for out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh” and- “Where there is no vision, the people perish.” Symbols are energy, concentrated in a specific form. Initiates and certain occult practitioners know how to access the power of symbols. Depending on the intentions and moral climate of the individuals, if the higher energy potential is locked because of their moral shortcomings, the force of the symbols is turned to perverse use.

Numbers also have tremendous power for those who understand their true meaning. This is best demonstrated in the Tree of Life, in which is concealed the whole of the workings of the universe. Because of the darkness of this age, leading up to what is coming, many of the traditions and institutions that formerly stood for the greater good of humanity, have been hijacked by spiritual predators. It is not necessary for me to go into more detail here. Many of you know who and what I am talking about.

All of the players of the moment are here for a reason, via reincarnation. A grand denouement approaches. One clear example of what I am talking about is the increasing tension developing between COVID mask wearers and those refusing to. It is the old tale of conditions before The Ascension and similar to the Bible story about two men working in a field and one of them is taken and one is left. I am not passing judgment. I am talking about the metaphysical looping; the cosmic bio-rhythmic pulse of creation that ebbs and flows at every level of manifestation, including that of cultures. I don't have details. They are always in flux but... the general patterns can be seen and the state of existence can be intuited at any time, to the degree that one is free of its influence and circumstances. Attachment blinds us at every level.

The Apocalypse is causing the lies of the manipulators and their foot-soldiers at every level to be exposed and the awakening is causing people to become aware of them but there is a large block of people who refuse to see no matter what. No amount of reasoning or evidence will convince them. We saw this with 9/11. They have too much invested in what they have been told is real, being real. It is a complex matter. In all cases Karma is a player and accounts for the multiplicity of secondary causes; ignorance, low-level desire, and consuming appetites, possession, stupidity. There are so many of them. Freedom; the desire to be free, however it is understood, is the consuming passion of everyone. It is the greatest misfortune that all too often Freedom is miss-identified as bondage and becomes an entanglement that can stretch for lifetimes unless Grace appears. Those of us who are the recipient of it understand how profound a gift that is.

It is one of the great mysteries how so many can be so blind to the presence of the splendor and glory that resides within them and on all sides around them. It is right there in plain sight but the eye cannot see. Yes... there are all those explanations in all of the scriptures that have been written since the beginning. It is still a mystery. Then come those rare moments, such as the ones we find ourselves in now. On the one side is the giddy and relentless elevation of awareness brought on by The Awakening. On the other side is the relentless intensifying of denial.

Rarely is there a need to pay such concentrated attention to one's spiritual state. Ask yourself; “What have I been up to already today? What did I give my time to in the past week... in the past month?” That should tell you a great deal. Now, some amount of you will render this a perfunctory dismissal. That ALSO requires your attention. If we do not reflect on what we HAVE BEEN UP TO, it will not go well in terms of what WE ARE up to and it will surely impact on what WE LATER GET UP TO. I speak these words, RIGHT HERE, as a cautionary admonition. If you cannot see from present conditions in the manifest, the degree to which the insanity has taken hold, it may occur that you are soon given reason to see. As my old friend, Louis Pasteur once said, “Fortune favors the prepared mind.” Another fellow once said, “Fortune favors the bold.” I've less attraction for the last statement. I've seen what comes of being bold when the conditions are not right. In fact, I am watching a number of people on their way to learning that for The Purpose of Demonstration.

Everything is arranged and whether you believe in nothing or some version of a perspective, SUBJECT TO CHANGE, is immaterial ...and SO IS THE CONTROLLER OF EVERYTHING. The problem arises, if problem it is, that there are some number of folks who believe that they are in control of this... or that and the fact of the matter is that they are not even in control of themselves. Unless you are in control of yourself, your efforts will ONLY result in an OBJECT LESSON. I am not telling you this because it is something I came up with on my own. What I am telling you comes from the timeless repository of Ageless Wisdom and is the fruit of minds far beyond my own and it is to minds such as these that I owe everything I have and do not have and everything I know and do not know and the variance between what I have and do not have and know and do not know is THE CRITICAL THING. It is the discrimination which is key; to know what is worth knowing and to have what is worth having is a jewel of incalculable value and the origin of all suffering when one does not.

I have said it often. These times we are presently in are EXTRAORDINARY TIMES and that is why the distraction of the material plane is so great, whether it is due to the attractions flickering like the lights of Vegas, the appetites being whetted, or the fear being generated. All of the nonsense of the Coronavirus and the dancing bimbos of Babylon; male or female or of questionable status, crying like sirens on the rocks of destruction, is no more than cheap carnival action, a sideshow to trap the unwitting and the unwary and it HAS BEEN EVER THUS. Nothing changes but the presentations. Step right up! Step right up, everyone's a winner! You bet.


There is a force, resident within you, that is more powerful than anything in the external; “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.” That statement was inspired by the everlasting presence and the everlasting presence is NEVER wrong. You must see that every challenge that comes upon you is only for the purpose of making you strong. It does not go on forever. It is also for the purpose of weeding out the insincere, the dilettantes, and the half measurites. If you are committed, the difficulty is remarkably reduced. You are then no longer fighting yourself and that is the majority of your conflict and your problems in every case. Self-mastery comes about on its own. It is not something you make happen. It is something you allow to happen. There is ONE ruling force. It is your opposition to it that has been the cause of your every defeat in life after life afterlife. It is the objective of life to come into alignment with that force and once you have done so, your troubles are at an end. One needs to understand the meaning of Fallen Angels and it wouldn't hurt to have an awareness of the meaning of 'redemption' also.


The world exists as a stage for the accomplishment of The Great Work and as a theater for the epic fails that are testimony to all that does not work because they are not The Great Work. You are destined to achieve it and it begins to manifest the moment you allow it to take place. It IS NOT something you do. It is something you permit to happen. It is the easiest thing there is because it requires nothing but your consent and accommodation. All the complications... all the mysteries and convoluted bullshit are the results of the operations of the monkey mind false self-justifying and its endless reactions and contrivances in the effort to defend Self Will Run Riot. STILL THE REACTIVE MIND and EVERYTHING will fall into place. Stand guard at the gateway of the mind and evict all thought until nothing remains but THE QUIETUDE OF THE PRESENCE. It is a VERY SIMPLE THING and conditions have seldom been so right for you to attain. May God grant you his grace and PERMIT your understanding!

"Bobbleheads, Nodwells and Nimrods, with the IQ of a Kardashian-Jenner Boyfriend, are Strutting like Rooster Tards."

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

It's been a long, long time since I have seen the level of self-righteous hypocrisy that I see these days. Fortunately... for me... I can speak truthfully and not care a wit who objects because there is nothing of any real value that any of them can take from me, unless I were to submit to their Jacobean Snowflake hallucinations of PC grandeur. Then they would have taken my integrity. I'm sure they would now be patting each other on the back, if that were possible, but there is no back because they are all front. Famous athletes with the IQ of a Kardashian boyfriend are puffing up like roosters, doing their cock of the walk thing, along with the fierce competition of their fellows, cross-platform and in the Mirkwood Soup of the ranks and rows of bobble-heads, Nodwells and Nimrods, virtue-signaling their complete lack of anything remotely similar to virtue, save for unreasonable facsimiles.

Is there no connection between the useless masks of the Corona-hoax and the Antifa masking of the same and sundry? Of course there is. It is all arranged. The humorous part is that they think they are arranging it. They can't even arrange their hair these days and that is why it generally looks like rats took a shit in it while they slept and then they sprayed it with Krazy Glue.

I did hard time in prison (for something I didn't do) with a majority of black convicts for several years and also grew up on military bases. I've NEVER had a problem with anyone over their color and that is why I feel ZERO GUILT for my own hue, not that I am ever aware of it in the first place.

Ah... the vicarious embarrassment that runs through me as I see these bombastic, prancing petunias pretending to be a rose by some other name. There is an odious stench of sanctimony, married to hypocrisy, wafting through the airwaves, as those without sin cast their stones in every direction and underneath all of this feigned outrage is... SHOW ME THE MONEY!


'BY THEIR WORKS YE SHALL KNOW THEM...' as they act- so they are. 'By their works ye shall know them...' AS THEY ACT-SO THEY ARE.


Israelis have been training American police forces for some time and the knee on the neck thing is one of the tactics they use on the Palestinians. Police protocols have changed dramatically, over time, so as to be reflective of the need for control when things get out of hand and the controllers have a need for their tender ministrations.

NO LIVES MATTER! Not when they are lived in an offensive revolt against the spirit of brotherhood and demonstrated in a war on Harmony and those resonating, archetypal ideals that identify us as human. Without them we ARE NOT HUMAN. Without them WE ARE BEASTS.

Civilization? Scratch the thin veneer of our fabricated politesse and the face of the ravening animal appears. This is ever the end of our imagined unity, as MATERIALISM crosses the border of self-restraint. It becomes a heavy breathing mob of smash and grabs. Nothing shows a lack of principles and values like masked skells running down the sidewalks with STUFF... stuff in their arms. CAVE CAVE DEUS VIDET. Where will that stuff be a few weeks hence? Or... for that matter... where will they be further on?

It all comes down to how we measure success. What does and does not have value? Stuff? Does stuff have value? Is glittery shit desirable? It will look really good draped around your skeleton vertebrae in the cold vault of the Earth.

In a time when hundreds of millions are followers of vain and mediocre talentless little shits like Ariana Grande, Taylor Swift, the Kardashian and Jenner vampire clan; in a time of youtube influencers like Jeffree Star and the rest of the gender-bending lunatics and self-serving face-time junkies, the transitory ego is king and queen of the madhouse. We literally live in a lunatic asylum. You know all of this. I could list name after name after name of those who haunt the celebrity websites and nearly all of them are distinguished by a simply amazing lack of talent and an even greater lack of humanity and whose charitable efforts are public relations scams, devoid of any sense of caring or concern whatsoever. They DO NOT perform their good works in secret.

Everywhere you go today you hear about the Tiger King. It's a tabloid drama designed to titillate. I've only a cursory idea of what is going on there but I do know WHY it is going on.

It is an easy thing to understand if you care to. Those WHO CONTROL the media that reports on the doings of the famous and wanna-be famous, control who gets identified as famous. They control PUBLIC PERCEPTION. They control who writes the books and sings the songs. They control who speaks in public. They control the ENTIRE FALSE IMPRESSIONS OF EXISTENCE and... by increments... those being promoted by these controllers are more and more clueless, talentless and perverse by the day BECAUSE THEY KNOW THE PUBLIC EMULATES THEM! They are CONSCIOUS employees of The Prince of Darkness. Like the shill outside the strip joint, like the carnival barker, like the circus ringmaster, they stand at the gates of perdition and wave their hands saying “Hello Sailor, come on in!”

Satanists like Billie (false) Eyelash, the next step in the Madonna-Lady Gagme progression, continue their Pied Piper Waltz. Matthew McConaughey wants you to help him with his whiteness. Boy are these callow and fallow little shrinking violets terrified of being on the wrong side of manufactured history!

The world is a gaping and ravenous maw, into which the millions march, in search of the satiation of appetite and it is they who are the consumed. We are here to learn through loss and disappointment, what is real and what is not, what is temporary and what is lasting. This euphemistically civilized Earth and all of its ways and byways are The Boulevards of Broken Dreams. At last... at long last, we realize what the Prodigal Son realized and we set out for Our Father's House. This is not the mere journey of a few days or weeks. It could be the product of lifetimes but... once we are set on that road, SOONER OR LATER, we will come home. The Father sees us from far off and literally trembles with excitement. That is how greatly we are loved. We may not think so, having that memory of the sty in which we slept and the squalor in which we awakened BUT... we are loved in a manner greater than we are capable of imagining.

Many are atavistically fearful. Many are despairing and fear there is no hope. Many in their fear are driven to great anger and no good will come of that BUT EVERYTHING... EVERYTHING that is taking place, is part of the grand learning experience of The Apocalypse. God... the grand weaver, spins his wheel and the tapestry of life unfolds before us like magic. It is magic. He who liberates us is also he who deceives us; “LEAD US NOT INTO TEMPTATION.” Could it be any more clear? Is God an angel or devil? Which of these are you? On that depends the interpretation of your relationship and identity. At which table do you sit? Are you scarfing from the trough or are you dining in THE UPPER ROOM? Are you rutting or are you caressing? Are you creating or destroying? We both do both each day and that is where DISCRIMINATION comes into play. A study of the 14th Trump is useful here.

“Faith is THE SUBSTANCE of things UNSEEN.” Ponder that. If God is Real and I assure you God is real; if God is defined by his qualities and his primary emanation= Love AND HE IS (and it is)... then, WHAT DOES THIS TELL YOU??? “Oh, ye of little faith!” “According to your faith is it done unto you.” It is so very simple. It truly is and it ONLY BECOMES COMPLEX when we begin to create arguments and justifications for WHAT WE WANT as we rationalize our behavior. If God is the cornucopia of all good things AND HE IS, who are these good things created for?

“But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.” The key to existence entire is to LOVE GOD. Love God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your strength, and with all your mind and in the clear mirrors of your brothers and sisters, love them as yourself because they most surely are. Ah... but what if you don't love yourself? There's good reason for that, isn't there. Did God make a mistake? God doesn't make mistakes. Did God make a mistake? Were you created by accident?

It looks bad at the moment. We've been saying for some time that this was coming and that this year would be the year of years BUT... with all of the specters and amorphous threats, along with the visibly evident... what else is there? What might we be missing in the process of focusing upon the negative aspect? Should there not be a positive aspect equal to the negative? Isn't that some kind of law of physics?


Be of good cheer my friends. This really is all FOR THE PURPOSE OF DEMONSTRATION and right now, the clowns and fools and predators are outing themselves in grand fashion. Meanwhile, The Awakening continues apace, as the eyes of humanity are being opened consonantly, in respect of the common perception (does that sentence even make sense? (grin)) God IS AT ALL TIMES, in complete command of all things. If anything is out of control it is not God.

There's a neat little POCKET,--
In the schoolroom it stands,--
And it points through the NET
With its two little hands.


And may we, like the clock,
Keep a face clean and bright,
With hands ever ready
To do what is right and then... there's Pocketnet.

"He is the Voice of the Lightning as He Speaks in the Thunder. He is the Crackle of the Flames in the Fire."

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

Throughout the days of recording and writing there has been a great deal of thinking and reflecting. The world has been in an uproar and despite the perspectives of all the experts, the real causes, the warp and woof and the why and wherefore, are deeper than the surface appearances. EVERYTHING is an expression of God, working things out to his satisfaction for the purpose of AWAKENING. Cause and effect teach us the consequences of our actions.

Those individuals, cabals, principalities and powers believe in the supremacy of their power. Painstakingly, they have been at work for generations in the effort to cause violent revolution and mob rule. They have been behind the World Wars of the last century and the Communist engines that killed and tortured hundreds of millions. They instigated the Vietnam conflict and CENTURIES BEFORE the Civil Rights movement, they owned the slave ships that brought the blacks over from Africa. Then they pounced on the Civil Rights movement to fabricate the evidence of their being the Good Guys, though they started the whole business in the first place.

They founded PNAC, which plotted the 9/11 attacks. They have been the visible machinery that orchestrated the Gay movement, whose sinister intention was to create an epidemic of REVERSED KUNDALINI to manifest spiritual death on an epic scale. They are behind the war on Christianity and on The Family Unit, which has been their chief target ever since the Bolshevik Revolution. They operate and control the music industry and are responsible for the Satanic messaging that has wiped out all inspired musical expression. They control the art galleries and the very nature of art, as it is presented in its contemporary demonic formats.

They are the force behind the Coronavirus Hoax and the ENGINEERED George Floyd protests. All along they have operated out of the shadows but so confident are they now, in their imagined control of material appearances, they are coming out into the open. Little do they know that their exposure in not, as they think, evidence of their power but, more rather, a testimony of their weakness and vulnerability. As they have continued, step by step, plotting the enslavement and destruction of the human race, all this time, they have been mere servants of The Prince of Darkness.


Much of their present frenzy is about removing Donald Trump from the presidency.


It is very difficult for most of us to avoid feeling overwhelmed by them, to avoid despair and FEAR on a mass scale. One of the things they took care of early on was to gain control of THE MONEY. By this means they can threaten and demand compliance from everyone with HOSTAGES TO FORTUNE.

Little do they know in their mad dreams of empire and plunder... little do they know that The Supreme Being is in TOTAL AND ABSOLUTE CONTROL OF EVERYTHING. He is the mind behind the mind behind the mind of the practitioners of both Good and Evil and he orchestrates every event to the fulfillment of his will. There are many ways to look at it. Life is QUITE LITERALLY a movie and he IS THE DIRECTOR. He says “ACTION”. He says, “CUT”. He says, “OKAY, THAT'S A WRAP.” He says whatever gets said that makes anything occur.

He is the voice of the lightning as he speaks in the thunder. He is the crackle of the flames in the fire. He is the pounding of the waves upon the sand and the rocks that are being rendered into sand. He is the horse and the hoof-beats and the rider. He is the panorama they pass through. He is the one who sees the horse and the rider. He is the origin and destination of EVERYTHING and you may... you may on occasion remind yourself of this but then you forget again and again. In many cases you remain unaware of it, or don't believe it but whether you believe it or not does not impact on whether or not it is real.

He is the essential and original OM out of which creation emerged by virtue of variations of vibration. He is the Akasha and the Prana. He is the thing and the force that acts upon the thing or animates the thing. He is intelligence itself and witness to EVERYTHING that takes place, no matter how seemingly in secret it may appear to be.

The fiends of these times are exposing their hand, with all of the violent nonsense they are manifesting. On the one hand it looks like they are more powerful than us. Not so... when they were in the shadows they were more powerful, manipulating behind the scenes; now they have exposed themselves and are vulnerable. When the awakening hits its next level, they will be visibly identifiable. God is WITHIN THE MIND OF EVERYONE. It is a simple matter for him to announce himself inside their heads. It is a simple matter for him to remove their sanity. He is WITHIN THEM. He is WITHIN every one of us.

Everything... everything taking place has a purpose! Fear not;

“The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.”


These poor sad fools, they plot and plot the overthrow of what that is they do not know. They do not know that The Earth is a sacred vessel, which at the mere approach of the profane, recedes. This is why no one HAS EVER been able to take control of the whole of it and why all that have tried have become object lessons.

If your spiritual senses were awake, you would see space is filled with entities of every kind. It is from the invisible that the control of the visible comes. Just because you can't see it doesn't mean it isn't there. Humanity is moving through a dreamscape, populated by Fata Morgana and tinkling, glittering objects of desire, carrot and sticking the dreamers through the realm of appetite, where they are WHAT IS CONSUMED, as they imagine themselves to be the consumers. They are what is being fed upon by creatures of nightmare that, for the most part, they cannot see; ♫ ah mercy mercy me, things ain't what they seem to be ♫ (excuse the liberties taken, Marvin)

While the masses seek to appease their merciless and draconian predators, they fail to see where the real power lies. They submit themselves to temporary chimera and become horribly bound by what is not even real. They are prisoners in the Penitentiary of the Mind. However... my friends, THE LIBERATOR IS COMING!!! Oh yes indeed, he approaches even now, down through the planes he comes, precipitating... as he cleans each level of being. Soon he will appear on the material plane. Soon he will arrive and announce himself in EVERY HUMAN HEART AND MIND and then... and then? Well... it depends on what you've been up to, doesn't it? We are looking at harvest time for The Foolish Virgins. What will the predators do when the power is shut down and when it is rerouted? What will they do when HIS AMBASSADORS appear with his mark on them?

It is going to be a situation of magnitudes beyond that of Palestinians, throwing rocks at tanks, because THE ONE WHO IS COMING WILL HAVE MORE POWER IN HIS LITTLE FINGER than all the ignorant armies of darkness that have ever been, could EVER muster at one time.

There is a reason that we are impressed by the pathetic displays of temporal force presently extant. There is a reason we are enthralled by the glamour of vacuous celebrities, or in fear of agencies of material force. There is a reason that our minds are captivated by trivia and base hungers. There is a reason that our Solar Plexus has been hijacked by criminal entrepreneurs, who play upon our lower centers like a sidewalk organ grinder does with his monkey and a reason why the mind is likened to one. There is a reason we dance like chickens on a hidden griddle. It is all for THE PURPOSE OF DEMONSTRATION!!! Now... however... The Awakening is upon us and each are reacting in their own individual and group fashion to force it;

“Whenever dharma declines and the purpose of life is forgotten, I manifest myself on earth. I am born in every age to protect the good, to destroy evil, and to reestablish dharma. As they approach me, so I receive them. All paths, Arjuna, lead to me.”


The Avatar WILL APPEAR and say, in his own fashion, “Today I settle all family business, so don't tell me you're innocent.” You cannot hide anything from yourself and that is what The Avatar is. Fear not my friends, continue to be as you are and let Faith, Certitude and Determination be your guidance system. Remember... in the end... it really does come down to who you know.

"Hiatus Interuptus; The Concluding Chapter from the book, Bhakti, by Swami Vivekananda."

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

I know I am on hiatus and from what I can see it may well have only begun, as I have these projects that have been delayed again and again and all of a sudden, I have a full head of steam on about them and it is going well enough to please me and I am VERY HARD TO PLEASE when it comes to ME. If you read a post from the past every single day, it would take you years to read them all. If you read one every day and one every evening, it would still take you years to read them all so... I've gone on and on and on about this, that, the other thing and yeah... all those other things too so... (sigh)

These days, The Lord God is becoming, more and more, the single enduring focus of my days and nights and because certain events that have been meant to occur in my life, ever since I met The Man on the Beach in 1967, are about to soon happen; all kinds of fireworks are going off, as well as new conditions appearing that I have not previously seen. I am absolutely certain that at year's end, neither I, nor You, nor the world surrounding, will resemble itself as it presently is. We are all going to be dramatically changed.

These days, due to the Law of Synchronicity and Resonance, a law you may not have heard mentioned here, or maybe anywhere before now, everything I read, dovetails right into whatever I may have been thinking of or wondering about immediately previous. It has reached a level of absurdity actually. I could not possibly convey how relentlessly this is happening now.

I have posted this statement several times here;

"These three are difficult to obtain in this world and depend on the mercy of the gods- the human birth, the desire for salvation and the company of the great-souled ones."


I mentioned what a thrill it was for me when it dawned on me that I could check all three of those boxes. The sense of assurance and certitude that washed over me (and still does) when I read it, was profound. Today I completed the book, “Bhakti Yoga”, which is in Volume 3 of The Complete Works of Swami Vivekananda. Once again I had that same feeling as I read about the different levels of Love one experiences in respect of The Divine. Wow!

So I want to share this with you and I don't feel that it compromises my hiatus. I didn't want any time to pass before I made this available to THOSE OF YOU TO WHOM IT MAY APPLY. It's not for everyone, nor am I, or have I ever been, trying to reach everyone. However... SOME OF YOU will be delighted to read this short excerpt from his works. Read it carefully, there is more present than may appear. Perhaps you will (as I do) ask your guiding angel to open the revelation area of your awareness so that you might receive the full import of what he is saying.


Much love to you my friends and now... back to work.


I will try to provide the occasional Podcast and video as time goes by.


God Bless and protect you all, my friends, in these trying and transformative times.




CHAPTER IX
HUMAN REPRESENTATIONS OF THE DIVINE IDEAL OF LOVE


It is impossible to express the nature of this supreme and absolute ideal of love in human language. Even the highest flight of human imagination is incapable of comprehending it in all its infinite perfection and beauty. Nevertheless, the followers of the religion of love, in its higher as well as its lower forms, in all countries, have all along had to use the inadequate human language to comprehend and to define their own ideal of love. Nay more, human love itself, in all its varied forms has been made to typify this inexpressible divine love. Man can think of divine things only in his own human way, to us the Absolute can be expressed only in our relative language. The whole universe is to us a writing of the Infinite in the language of the finite. Therefore Bhaktas make use of all the common terms associated with the common love of humanity in relation to God and His worship through love.


Some of the great writers on Para-Bhakti have tried to understand and experience this divine love in so many different ways. The lowest form in which this love is apprehended is what they call the peaceful — the Shânta. When a man worships God without the fire of love in him, without its madness in his brain, when his love is just the calm commonplace love, a little higher than mere forms and ceremonies and symbols, but not at all characterized by the madness of intensely active love, it is said to be Shanta. We see some people in the world who like to move on slowly, and others who come and go like the whirlwind. The Shânta-Bhakta is calm, peaceful, gentle.


The next higher type is that of Dâsya, i.e. servantship; it comes when a man thinks he is the servant of the Lord. The attachment of the faithful servant unto the master is his ideal. The next type of love is Sakhya, friendship — "Thou art our beloved friend." Just as a man opens his heart to his friend and knows that the friend will never chide him for his faults but will always try to help him, just as there is the idea of equality between him and his friend, so equal love flows in and out between the worshipper and his friendly God. Thus God becomes our friend, the friend who is near, the friend to whom we may freely tell all the tales of our lives. The innermost secrets of our hearts we may place before Him with the great assurance of safety and support. He is the friend whom the devotee accepts as an equal. God is viewed here as our playmate.


We may well say that we are all playing in this universe. Just as children play their games, just as the most glorious kings and emperors play their own games, so is the Beloved Lord Himself in sport with this universe. He is perfect; He does not want anything. Why should He create? Activity is always with us for the fulfillment of a certain want, and want always presupposes imperfection. God is perfect; He has no wants. Why should He go on with this work of an ever-active creation? What purpose has He in view? The stories about God creating this world for some end or other that we imagine are good as stories, but not otherwise. It is all really in sport; the universe is His play going on. The whole universe must after all be a big piece of pleasing fun to Him. If you are poor, enjoy that as fun; if you are rich, enjoy the fun of being rich; if dangers come, it is also good fun; if happiness comes, there is more good fun.


The world is just a playground, and we are here having good fun, having a game; and God is with us playing all the while, and we are with Him playing. God is our eternal playmate. How beautifully He is playing! The play is finished when the cycle: comes to an end. There is rest for a shorter or longer time; again all come out and play. It is only when you forget that it is all play and that you are also helping in the play, it is only then that misery and sorrows come. Then the heart becomes heavy, then the world weighs upon you with tremendous power. But as soon as you give up the serious idea of reality as the characteristic of the changing incidents of the three minutes of life and know it to be but a stage on which we are playing, helping Him to play, at once misery ceases for you. He plays in every atom; He is playing when He is building up earths, and suns, and moons; He is playing with the human heart, with animals, with plants. We are His chessmen; He puts the chessmen on the board and shakes them up. He arranges us first in one way and then in another, and we are consciously or unconsciously helping in His play. And, oh, bliss! we are His playmates!


The next is what is known as Vâtsalya, loving God not as our Father but as our Child. This may look peculiar, but it is a discipline to enable us to detach all ideas of power from the concept of God. The idea of power brings with it awe. There should be no awe in love. The ideas of reverence and obedience are necessary for the formation of character; but when character is formed, when the lover has tasted the calm, peaceful love and tasted also a little of its intense madness, then he need talk no more of ethics and discipline. To conceive God as mighty, majestic, and glorious, as the Lord of the universe, or as the God of gods, the lover says he does not care. It is to avoid this association with God of the fear-creating sense of power that he worships God as his own child. The mother and the father are not moved by awe in relation to the child; they cannot have any reverence for the child. They cannot think of asking any favour from the child. The child's position is always that of the receiver, and out of love for the child the parents will give up their bodies a hundred times over. A thousand lives they will sacrifice for that one child of theirs, and, therefore, God is loved as a child. This idea of loving God as a child comes into existence and grows naturally among those religious sects which believe in the incarnation of God.


For the Mohammedans it is impossible to have this idea of God as a child; they will shrink from it with a kind of horror. But the Christian and the Hindu can realise it easily, because they have the baby Jesus and the baby Krishna. The women in India often look upon themselves as Krishna's mother; Christian mothers also may take up the idea that they are Christ's mothers, and it will bring to the West the knowledge of God's Divine Motherhood which they so much need. The superstitions of awe and reverence in relation to God are deeply rooted in the bears of our hearts, and it takes long years to sink entirely in love our ideas of reverence and veneration, of awe and majesty and glory with regard to God.


There is one more human representation of the divine ideal of love. It is known as Madhura, sweet, and is the highest of all such representations. It is indeed based on the highest manifestation of love in this world, and this love is also the strongest known to man. What love shakes the whole nature of man, what love runs through every atom of his being — makes him mad, makes him forget his own nature, transforms him, makes him either a God or a demon — as the love between man and woman. In this sweet representation of divine love God is our husband. We are all women; there are no men in this world; there is but One man, and this is He, our Beloved. All that love which man gives to woman, or woman to man, has her to be given up to the Lord. All the different kinds of love which we see in the world, and with which we are more or less playing merely, have God as the one goal; but unfortunately, man does not know the infinite ocean into which this mighty river of love is constantly flowing, and so, foolishly, he often tries to direct it to little dolls of human beings.


The tremendous love for the child that is in human nature is not for the little doll of a child; if you bestow it blindly and exclusively on the child, you will suffer in consequence. But through such suffering will come the awakening by which you are sure to find out that the love which is in you, if it is given to any human being, will sooner or later bring pain and sorrow as the result. Our love must, therefore, be given to the Highest One who never dies and never changes, to Him in the ocean of whose love there is neither ebb nor flow. Love must get to its right destination, it must go unto Him who is really the infinite ocean of love. All rivers flow into the ocean. Even the drop of water coming down from the mountain side cannot stop its course after reaching a brook or a river, however big it may be; at last even that drop somehow does find its way to the ocean. God is the one goal of all our passions and emotions. If you want to be angry, be angry with Him. Chide your Beloved, chide your Friend. Whom else can you safely chide? Mortal man will not patiently put up with your anger; there will be a reaction. If you are angry with me I am sure quickly to react, because I cannot patiently put up with your anger. Say unto the Beloved, "Why do You not come to me; why do You leave me thus alone?" Where is there any enjoyment but in Him? What enjoyment can there be in little clods of earth? It is the crystallised essence of infinite enjoyment that we have to seek, and that is in God. Let all our passions and emotions go up unto Him They are meant for Him, for if they miss their mark and go lower, they become vile; and when they go straight to the mark, to the Lord, even the lowest of them becomes transfigured.


All the energies of the human body and mind, howsoever they may express themselves, have the Lord as their one goal, as their Ekâyana. All loves and all passions of the human heart must go to God. He is the Beloved. Whom else can this heart love? He is the most beautiful, the most sublime, He is beauty itself, sublimity itself. Who in this universe is more beautiful than He? Who in this universe is more fit to become the husband than He? Who in this universe is fitter to be loved than He? So let Him be the husband, let Him be the Beloved. Often it so happens that divine lovers who sing of this divine love accept the language of human love in all its aspects as adequate to describe it. Fools do not understand this; they never will. They look at it only with the physical eye. They do not understand the mad throes of this spiritual love. How can they? "For one kiss of Thy lips, O Beloved! One who has been kissed by Thee, has his thirst for Thee increasing for ever, all his sorrows vanish, and he forgets all things except Thee alone."


Aspire after that kiss of the Beloved, that touch of His lips which makes the Bhakta mad, which makes of man a god. To him, who has been blessed with such a kiss, the whole of nature changes, worlds vanish, suns and moons die out, and the universe itself melts away into that one infinite ocean of love. That is the perfection of the madness of love Ay, the true spiritual lover does not rest even there; even the love of husband and wife is not mad enough for him. The Bhaktas take up also the idea of illegitimate love, because it is so strong; the impropriety of it is not at all the thing they have in view. The nature if this love is such that the more obstructions there are for its free play, the more passionate it becomes. The love between husband and wife is smooth, there are no obstructions there. So the Bhaktas take up the idea of a girl who is in love with her own beloved, and her mother or father or husband objects to such love; and the more anybody obstructs the course of her love, so much the more is her love tending to grow in strength.


Human language cannot describe how Krishna in the groves of Vrindâ was madly loved, how at the sound of his voice the ever-blessed Gopis rushed out to meet him, forgetting everything, forgetting this world and its ties, its duties, its joys, and its sorrows. Man, O man, you speak of divine love and at the same time are able to attend to all the vanities of this world — are you sincere? "Where Râma is, there is no room for any desire — where desire is, there is no room for Rama; these never coexist — like light and darkness they are never together."



CHAPTER X CONCLUSION


When this highest ideal of love is reached, philosophy is thrown away; who will then care for it? Freedom, Salvation, Nirvâna — all are thrown away; who cares to become free while in the enjoyment of divine love? "Lord, I do not want wealth, nor friends, nor beauty, nor learning, nor even freedom; let me be born again and again, and be Thou ever my Love. Be Thou ever and ever my Love." "Who cares to become sugar?" says the Bhakta, "I want to taste sugar." Who will then desire to become free and one with God? "I may know that I am He; yet will I take myself away from Him and become different, so that I may enjoy the Beloved." That is what the Bhakta says. Love for love's sake is his highest enjoyment. Who will not be bound hand and foot a thousand times over to enjoy the Beloved? No Bhakta cares for anything except love, except to love and to be loved. His unworldly love is like the tide rushing up the river; this lover goes up the river against the current. The world calls him mad I know one whom the world used to call mad, and this was his answer: "My friends, the whole world is a lunatic asylum.


Some are mad after worldly love, some after name, some after fame, some after money, some after salvation and going to heaven. In this big lunatic asylum I am also mad, I am mad after God. If you are mad after money, I am mad after God. You are mad; so am I. I think my madness is after all the best." The true Bhakta's love is this burning madness before which everything else vanishes for him. The whole universe is to him full of love and love alone; that is how it seems to the lover. So when a man has this love in him, he becomes eternally blessed, eternally happy.


This blessed madness of divine love alone can cure for ever the disease of the world that is in us. With desire, selfishness has vanished. He has drawn near to God, he has thrown off all those vain desires of which he was full before. We all have to begin as dualists in the religion of love. God is to us a separate Being, and we feel ourselves to be separate beings also. Love then comes in the middle, and man begins to approach God, and God also comes nearer and nearer to man. Man takes up all the various relationships of life, as father, as mother, as son, as friend, as master, as lover, and projects them on his ideal of love, on his God. To him God exists as all these, and the last point of his progress is reached when he feels that he has become absolutely merged in the object of his worship. We all begin with love for ourselves, and the unfair claims of the little self make even love selfish. At last, however, comes the full blaze of light, in which this little self is seen to have become one with the Infinite. Man himself is transfigured in the presence of this Light of Love, and he realises at last the beautiful and inspiring truth that Love, the Lover, and the Beloved are One.

"Everything Outside was Already Inside and then You Named it and Owned it as That."

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

A reader wrote in yesterday, asking about what he might do, concerning flashes of anger and rage that come upon him. I suspect that this and similar emotions are plaguing a great many of us at this time, or have at some time. Venal and twisted beings have taken over the outer environs, which all of us are passing through to some degree. When a nasty little cabal of Satanists in the Middle East attacked the United States on 9/11, many of our freedoms went missing. Trying to travel by plane has become a nightmare and I- for one -avoid it now. I just don't go anywhere if travel by air is required, unless I travel in my astral body for which I do not need to pass through checkpoints.

Skulls Chertoff, one of the main players in the attack made a fortune off of marketing body scanners. His picture says it all. The impotence of our collective state, no doubt, enrages many of us. Now THEY have manufactured a nothing kind of a virus, to kill off the elderly and those with existing health complications, so that they could also create a new system of social control called, Social Distancing. They are invited to kiss my ass and no distance is required as far as I am concerned. Scratch that, I don't want them anywhere near my ass. I don't know where that mouth has been but without question it was deep into the darkest orifice of The Prince of Darkness not long ago.

I was talking to my friend about this reader's request and my friend said, “I was about to answer him too.” I replied, “You should have.” You should always react; ANYTIME you feel the push in that direction you should act on it because that is one of the angels of God speaking to you. My friend said, with an amused countenance, “Well... I didn't want to step on anyone's toes”, meaning me. I answered that any response of that kind actually helps me. Anytime anyone helps someone else, they are helping me because I AM EVERYONE ELSE. That perspective, it seems to me, is the right perspective to have. What did John Donne say in that poem? “No man is an island.” and he concluded with, “Each man's death diminishes me, for I am involved in mankind. Therefore, never seek to know for whom the bell tolls. It tolls for thee.”

We are all a part of one another and that is a scientific fact, regardless of how poorly expressed or understood it may be. We have no relevance or meaning outside of the context of each other and what any one of us feels, rolls... however slightly, through us all. So... in these times there is a great deal of anger on the move. Whenever steps are taken to impinge upon our freedom, rage and frustration are the offspring of that offense. The urge to freedom is the most basic human impetus.

Anger, from my observations, most often has to do with something unresolved from former times. It may be a familial matter. It may be related to something we did not do that we thought we should have done; the fruit of some moment of personal cowardice, where we did not rise to the occasion. It could be harm done to us by another and the memory of which we carry like an unwelcome passenger on our back. I don't know WHICH is the WHAT of it ...but MOST OF THE TIME, the origins of anger are simpler than we may think. Self Inquiry brings whatever is needed to the fore if we take the trouble to look.

Why is it... when we happen to be the origin and solution to every problem we encounter, that we do not look there? Our eyes give our minds the impression that we are seeing, 'out there'. We are not seeing out there. Out there is in our heads and the control of everything is quite simple. It only requires recognizing who is already in control. If... you allow the one who is perpetually in command of everything, to continue unhindered in his rulership of everything, from the movement of stars and planets to the final destination of a single fallen leaf, you will be aligned with that command. You will be in sympathetic resonance with THE ALL.

Attempting to hinder, or not hindering the Supreme Ruler does not affect the Supreme Ruler AT ALL. What was it that caused the Fallen Angels to fall? It was rebellion was it not? What was it that set them off? He commanded them to worship his creation, Adam and they refused. This is what we are told. There are many fundamentalist doctrinarians and dogmatists who object to this and others as well who do not answer to those definitions of type BUT... with ANY INSPIRED SCRIPTURE, the surface meaning is almost never the real meaning. I might add that any INSPIRED SCRIPTURE can be understood differently, depending on the level of awareness of the person understanding it. This was explained where it was said that there was one teaching for the masses and another for the disciples.

You learn what you are capable of understanding. You receive the teaching that corresponds to your level of awareness. At the moment that the switch is thrown in your consciousness, as the result of a metaphysical, critical mass occurring, the teacher appears. Here is a story I have never told here before, one of a great many stories I have yet to tell. I was sitting in a park in San Francisco (this was in the summer of 1967) when this fellow came energetically striding across the grass at me. He was dressed simply in a pair of pants and a button-down shirt and looked like one of those characters drawn by the cartoonist Don Martin from Mad Magazine. He had a grin a mile wide, with flashing white teeth and shining blue eyes. For some reason he reminds me (now) of one of those desert Mormons. He said, “Do you want to go to a Buddhist monastery?”

I was compelled to my feet. I still don't know why and I walked off with him. I thought of my possessions back at the apartment, at the corner of Haight and Fillmore but continued on with him. He had a ruddy complexion and was full of life. We started hitching out of town and were picked up quickly. We were headed toward the area of Big Sur, as I remember it. It was getting dark at some point and we were walking through a town when he said we should eat. He went up to the window of a Taco Bell. I think it was a Taco Bell and told the man at the window we were hungry and had no money. He gave us a big bag of food. It was like magic. Everyone he spoke to seemed to be under his spell.

It was dark now and we went back on the highway and a fellow in a Volkswagen Bug picked us up. My companion told him we were tired and needed a place to sleep. Without pause he said, you can sleep at my house. He had a pleasant cottage somewhere and we spent the night. The next morning he came to us and said, “I have to go to work now so... there's food in the refrigerator, help yourself and just close the door when you leave.” People just don't do this sort of thing.

We went up on the highway and got a ride. I had been talking about Peyote with the fellow and also saying that I really should get back and get my stuff; stupid of me I know. We were by the side of the road, out on the highway and all of a sudden a police car pulled up. They asked us for ID. I had some. He didn't. They took him away. Before he left, he walked to a bush by the side of the road with red berries on it, took a handful and then he gave them to me. “Here's your Peyote”, he said. I'll never forget the look of disappointment in his face. It may not have been disappointment. I don't know what it was but I felt bad as I headed back to San Francisco.

The three young men I was living with were all from D.C., as was I. One of them was only 14 years old and named Phil. They were all Heroin addicts. It disturbed me that they were like this. There was also a few hundred pounds of Marijuana in the apartment. They came from rich stock and had money and I guess they fancied themselves, dealers. This paid for the Heroin, or something did. They were not happy about being addicted and mentioned it frequently. I hatched a plan to take them to Big Sur to drop acid and said that this could work to get them off the Heroin. They agreed. Addicts don't do this kind of thing.

We climbed into the VW Bus owned by one of them and set off. We arrived in the Big Sur area and saw a sign that said, camping $3.00 a person at the Lime Kiln Creek turnout (now a state park). Destiny had the place in mind. We pulled in and parked and then took the acid and I went my way and they went theirs. After coming on to the acid and having a few words with the ocean from atop a big boulder, I went walking about and came upon a fellow sitting cross-legged at a distance from the beach. It was The Man on the Beach and all that followed after that, followed after that.

It never occurred to me to connect the fellow who wanted to take me to a Buddhist monastery a few days earlier, with my now being in that same area. When YOU ARE SUPPOSED TO BE SOMEWHERE, YOU ARE THERE. Every journey starts out as an internal affair. It is something you think about or... somehow it appears in your mind and then it takes place in the projected external world. The whole course of my life was altered that day. I've no idea where it would have led otherwise but it assuredly IMPACTED on everything that came after.

Everything in my life and... probably in yours, is a preparation for what comes after. Sometimes the after is in that same life and... more often, it is the after that follows whatever tax you had to pay for former excursions and whatever stage is being set by your handling of that which came your way this time around. My whole life has been about being made ready for where I am and now... whatever awaits in these few years to follow. I was banged and battered into present shape for a reason. I also had all the rebellion and recalcitrance hammered out of me. I was made strong to endure it and made stronger still for having done so.


It is a funny thing how we can go through the span of a lifetime, never really thinking about what the import of it all meant. We simply did what we did that was in front of us and made the efforts and sacrifices necessary to hold our lives and the lives of those who depended on us, together. Also never knowing that it was not us who held anything together. There are other imperatives besides the biological. Well... that is enough for today.

CHAPTER VI from “Bhakti” (the book) in Volume 3 of the Collected Works of Swami Vivekananda.


INCARNATE TEACHERS AND INCARNATION


“Wherever His name is spoken, that very place is holy. How much more so is the man who speaks His name, and with what veneration ought we to approach that man out of whom comes to us spiritual truth! Such great teachers of spiritual truth are indeed very few in number in this world, but the world is never altogether without them. They are always the fairest flowers of human life — — "the ocean of mercy without any motive". — "Know the Guru to be Me", says Shri Krishna in the Bhagavata. The moment the world is absolutely bereft of these, it becomes a hideous hell and hastens on to its destruction. Higher and nobler than all ordinary ones are another set of teachers, the Avatâras of Ishvara, in the world. They can transmit spirituality with a touch, even with a mere wish. The lowest and the most degraded characters become in one second saints at their command. They are the Teachers of all teachers, the highest manifestations of God through man. We cannot see God except through them. We cannot help worshipping them; and indeed they are the only ones whom we are bound to worship.


No man can really see God except through these human manifestations. If we try to see God otherwise, we make for ourselves a hideous caricature of Him and believe the caricature to be no worse than the original. There is a story of an ignorant man who was asked to make an image of the God Shiva, and who, after days of hard struggle, manufactured only the image of a monkey. So whenever we try to think of God as He is in His absolute perfection, we invariably meet with the most miserable failure, because as long as we are men, we cannot conceive Him as anything higher than man. The time will come when we shall transcend our human nature and know Him as He is; but as long as we are men, we must worship Him in man and as man.


Talk as you may, try as you may, you cannot think of God except as a man. You may deliver great intellectual discourses on God and on all things under the sun, become great rationalists and prove to your satisfaction that all these accounts of the Avataras of God as man are nonsense. But let us come for a moment to practical common sense. What is there behind this kind of remarkable intellect? Zero, nothing, simply so much froth. When next you hear a man delivering a great intellectual lecture against this worship of the Avataras of God, get hold of him and ask what his idea of God is, what he understands by "omnipotence", "omnipresence", and all similar terms, beyond the spelling of the words. He really means nothing by them; he cannot formulate as their meaning any idea unaffected by his own human nature; he is no better off in this matter than the man in the street who has not read a single book. That man in the street, however, is quiet and does not disturb the peace of the world, while this big talker creates disturbance and misery among mankind.


Religion is, after all, realisation, and we must make the sharpest distinction between talk; and intuitive experience. What we experience in the depths of our souls is realisation. Nothing indeed is so uncommon as common sense in regard to this matter. By our present constitution we are limited and bound to see God as man. If, for instance the buffaloes want to worship God, they will, in keeping with their own nature, see Him as a huge buffalo; if a fish wants to worship God, it will have to form an Idea of Him as a big fish, and man has to think of Him as man. And these various conceptions are not due to morbidly active imagination. Man, the buffalo, and the fish all may be supposed to represent so many different vessels, so to say. All these vessels go to the sea of God to get filled with water, each according to its own shape and capacity; in the man the water takes the shape of man, in the buffalo, the shape of a buffalo and in the fish, the shape of a fish. In each of these vessels there is the same water of the sea of God. When men see Him, they see Him as man, and the animals, if they have any conception of God at all, must see Him as animal each according to its own ideal. So we cannot help seeing God as man, and, therefore, we are bound to worship Him as man. There is no other way.


Two kinds of men do not worship God as man — the human brute who has no religion, and the Paramahamsa who has risen beyond all the weaknesses of humanity and has transcended the limits of his own human nature. To him all nature has become his own Self. He alone can worship God as He is. Here, too, as in all other cases, the two extremes meet. The extreme of ignorance and the other extreme of knowledge — neither of these go through acts of worship. The human brute does not worship because of his ignorance, and the Jivanmuktas (free souls) do not worship because they have realised God in themselves. Being between these two poles of existence, if any one tells you that he is not going to worship God as man, take kindly care of that man; he is, not to use any harsher term, an irresponsible talker; his religion is for unsound and empty brains.


God understands human failings and becomes man to do good to humanity: — "Whenever virtue subsides and wickedness prevails, I manifest Myself. To establish virtue, to destroy evil, to save the good I come from Yuga (age) to Yuga." — 'Fools deride Me who have assumed the human form, without knowing My real nature as the Lord of the universe.' Such is Shri Krishna's declaration in the Gita on Incarnation. 'When a huge tidal wave comes,' says Bhagavan Shri Ramakrishna, 'all the little brooks and ditches become full to the brim without any effort or consciousness on their own part; so when an Incarnation comes, a tidal wave of spirituality breaks upon the world, and people feel spirituality almost full in the air.'”

"The Spilling of Numbers down the Mountainside of Existence into the Colorful Riot of Material Form."

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

By now, you should know, there is this group of psychopaths that want to reduce the population by a lot. They are out in front of themselves at the moment, seeking to head God off at the pass, when GOD IS THE PASS. They CAN'T win, BUT they can triumph in any particular life that submits to them. Tattoo the following upon your mind! Tattoo it on your forehead if necessary but in that case, write it backwards like ECNALUBMA so you can see it in the mirror; 'GOD IS IN CONTROL OF EVERYTHING!!!' What I will now add you will probably not want to tattoo on your forehead because it will require very small print unless you have a really big forehead; 'NOTHING can oppose the Will of God. God is triumphant over all ALWAYS. There is no Devil when the reactive mind is stilled. The Devil is the mind and also a monkey in its undisciplined behavior.' Then recite The 23rd Psalm=

“The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD forever.”


I keep getting evidence of Doom and Gloom from hither and yon and some of you that ought to know better. What that is a serious lack of faith on your part. I am not saying if you cashier that attitude that you are therefore going to survive whatever it is that is on the menu for the coming times. I do not know what your particular destiny includes but I DO KNOW that Almighty God is in complete control of everything and I DO KNOW that all things work for good for those who love The Lord. Whatever appearances may be trying to deceive you with is a lie. EVERYTHING that is happening and going to happen is FOR THE PURPOSE OF DEMONSTRATION and God is using this to make his point and he WILL make his point.

Rely upon The Ineffable in all your comings and goings, period... PERIOD!!! Some of you may want to rely on yourself and you will get the fruits of that. I RELY ON GOD... PERIOD! I do not KNOW BETTER than The Divine, no... not hardly. As much as you may come here to get affirmation of a specific reality... for some reason... FOR SOME REASON, it seems to be very hard for you to be convinced of THE FACT that God is in control of everything. Maybe it isn't that. Maybe it is hard for you to be convinced that God means well for you personally. Perhaps you think that God is unaware of you? That is VERY unlikely. Or that God dislikes you because you dislike yourself. God IS NOT LIKE THAT!!!

Remember the story of The Prodigal Son? When the father saw his son coming FROM FAR OFF (sometimes a matter of more than one lifetime away). He jumped for joy and called his servants to prepare a feast! THAT is how God is. Yeah... if you don't keep the covenant. If you are Self Will run Riot. If you insist on being THE Mr. Supremo of all you survey... you will go off of God's television screen. He is NOT going to interfere with you AND The Lords of Karma (there are 24 of them) will then determine WHICH PARTICULAR PURPOSE OF DEMONSTRATION your life example is best suited for and they will then suit you up for it; as a teaching aid, an object lesson for everyone else and THANK YOU FOR THAT! Thank you for having taken the licks and giving the evidence SO THAT WE DON'T HAVE TO.

Whatever the case may be, it KEEPS COMING TO MY ATTENTION that many of you are fearful, disturbed by current events, apprehensive of the power of the psychopaths who are seeking your demise... basically uneasy, as if... perhaps God is not completely in charge of EVERYTHING. I don't know how to convince you of what to me is an inescapable reality that is proven out in regular fashion, at least from my perspective.

Try to get past your reliance on appearances for what is really taking place. What is REALLY taking place is going on BEHIND appearances. Think of it this way. Appearances are ALWAYS changing. There is nothing stable about them and the appearances from yesterday are not the same today. Sure... denouements may be closer and the appearances may be more or less threatening but... they are not the same. That which is behind them and which CANNOT BE AFFECTED BY APPEARANCES, remains unchanged.

What is it that renders God unreal in our minds? It is brought about when WE ARE UNREAL. Don't be unreal! As you MAKE THE EFFORT to be drawn closer to God by... following the tenets of Ageless Wisdom and all of the sacrosanct homilies, parts of scripture, and the urgings of your heart, you will become more real and God will become more real. It is a simple thing, folks! Why is it not simple for you? Ah... you have decided that you want to do it your way. You know better!!! Sure you do. One thing for certain... YOU WILL FIND OUT. You WILL find out.

Think of the whole of life and all of its dynamics, principles, and living elements as being ALL OF THEM... Mathematical. I have given you this image before and I will expand on it a bit here. Imagine the snow-covered tops of mountains... the Himalayas, the Andes, the Sierra Nevada's as being the plane of pure mathematics. When the snow melts, it runs down the mountainsides in streams and similar and comes to the valley, which breaks into a riot of color and life, due to the pure mathematics having run down the mountain and materializing into form.

Think of the white light of the pure consciousness of God- the ineffable hitting a spectrum and becoming the 7 colors. These are MANIFEST variants of the being of God, playing out in 7 musical tones, 7 days of the week, the 7 planets of the ancients, the 7 chakras, and their Hermetic counterparts and I could go on a bit here but I won't. These further divide into 3 each, which accounts for the 21 Tarot images, absent The Fool, who is that white light (breath of life) prior to manifestation. We call it 'the spirit in search of experience, prior to its descent into material form'.

I should add that the entire universe is an expression of numbers and letters and that is the essence of Kabala. Think of it as a ladder upon which you can go UP and DOWN. Think of it as Jacob's Ladder if you will. The UNINFORMED like to take me to task... for mentioning the Kabala, which they insist I am promoting; far from it. They take what I say as an approving perspective on my part. This is not the case. What I have said is that it can be used to positive and negative effect by positive and negative practitioners, as IS THE CASE at present by certain cabals (cabal-cabala). I don't recommend getting into it at all. I looked into it, probably more than many but it was not for me as I am not on that path, the path of knowledge. I am on the path of Love, which is the RECOMMENDED path for this time frame. The Sacred Magic of Abramelin the Mage is for the purpose of communicating in the angelic language, with the angels. Variants CAN BE USED to discourse with demons and there are idiots and fools of that persuasion. It is the same thing with the Masons. There are some VERY GOOD PEOPLE who were, are, Masons, but there are fools and idiots who know nothing about the matter and who insist all Masons are evil. All Masons are NOT EVIL but all people who think so ARE STUPID.

I am NOT a Mason. I belong to the Brotherhood of Light- not the esoteric organization of the same name but to an esoteric branch and which is not called that. This accounts for all I 'might' happen to know and for my predilection to maintain that, “I don't know.” (but God does... and he informs me when it is called for).


My friends... it is going to get dicey in coming times and I ADVISE that you make every effort to seek and to remember the divine and to practice the presence whether you feel it or not. Keep practicing it and YOU WILL FEEL IT. You have to impress the one you seek to be in association with. He IS NOT going to drop-in because you did 2 weeks and a 4 day intensive, cobbled together by some spiritual carpetbagger for the purpose of their own material enrichment; NOT HAPPENING.

You MUST give the verifiable impression that you are in it for the long haul and that NOTHING can or will dissuade you, because efforts WILL BE MADE to that effect. Like I KEEP SAYING; “If you don't give up, you cannot fail” AND “You just have to want 'it' more than anything else”.

Here is the first chapter in Bhakti Yoga from the 3rd book in the Collected Works of Swami Vivekananda.


CHAPTER I PRAYER


"He is the Soul of the Universe; He is Immortal; His is the Rulership; He is the All-knowing, the All-pervading, the Protector of the Universe, the Eternal Ruler. None else is there efficient to govern the world eternally. He who at the beginning of creation projected Brahmâ (i.e. the universal consciousness), and who delivered the Vedas unto him — seeking liberation I go for refuge unto that effulgent One, whose light turns the understanding towards the Âtman."


DEFINITION OF BHAKTI


Bhakti-Yoga is a real, genuine search after the Lord, a search beginning, continuing, and ending in love. One single moment of the madness of extreme love to God brings us eternal freedom. "Bhakti", says Nârada in his explanation of the Bhakti-aphorisms, "is intense love to God"; "When a man gets it, he loves all, hates none; he becomes satisfied for ever"; "This love cannot be reduced to any earthly benefit", because so long as worldly desires last, that kind of love does not come; "Bhakti is greater than karma, greater than Yoga, because these are intended for an object in view, while Bhakti is its own fruition, its own means and its own end." Bhakti has been the one constant theme of our sages. Apart from the special writers on Bhakti, such as Shândilya or Narada, the great commentators on the Vyâsa-Sutras, evidently advocates of knowledge (Jnâna), have also something very suggestive to say about love.


Even when the commentator is anxious to explain many, if not all, of the texts so as to make them import a sort of dry knowledge, the Sutras, in the chapter on worship especially, do not lend themselves to be easily manipulated in that fashion. There is not really so much difference between knowledge (Jnana) and love (Bhakti) as people sometimes imagine. We shall see, as we go on, that in the end they converge and meet at the same point. So also is it with Râja-Yoga, which when pursued as a means to attain liberation, and not (as unfortunately it frequently becomes in the hands of charlatans and mystery-mongers) as an instrument to hoodwink the unwary, leads us also to the same goal. The one great advantage of Bhakti is that it is the easiest and the most natural way to reach the great divine end in view; its great disadvantage is that in its lower forms it oftentimes degenerates into hideous fanaticism.


The fanatical crew in Hinduism, or Mohammedanism, or Christianity, have always been almost exclusively recruited from these worshippers on the lower planes of Bhakti. That singleness of attachment (Nishthâ) to a loved object, without which no genuine love can grow, is very often also the cause of the denunciation of everything else. All the weak and undeveloped minds in every religion or country have only one way of loving their own ideal, i.e. by hating every other ideal. Herein is the explanation of why the same man who is so lovingly attached to his own ideal of God, so devoted to his own ideal of religion, becomes a howling fanatic as soon as he sees or hears anything of any other ideal. This kind of love is somewhat like the canine instinct of guarding the master's property from intrusion; only, the instinct of the dog is better than the reason of man, for the dog never mistakes its master for an enemy in whatever dress he may come before it. Again, the fanatic loses all power of judgment.


Personal considerations are in his case of such absorbing interest that to him it is no question at all what a man says — whether it is right or wrong; but the one thing he is always particularly careful to know is who says it. The same man who is kind, good, honest, and loving to people of his own opinion, will not hesitate to do the vilest deeds when they are directed against persons beyond the pale of his own religious brotherhood. But this danger exists only in that stage of Bhakti which is called the preparatory (Gauni). When Bhakti has become ripe and has passed into that form which is called the supreme (Parâ), no more is there any fear of these hideous manifestations of fanaticism; that soul which is overpowered by this higher form of Bhakti is too near the God of Love to become an instrument for the diffusion of hatred. It is not given to all of us to be harmonious in the building up of our characters in this life: yet we know that that character is of the noblest type in which all these three — knowledge and love and Yoga — are harmoniously fused.


Three things are necessary for a bird to fly — the two wings and the tail as a rudder for steering. Jnana (Knowledge) is the one wing, Bhakti (Love) is the other, and Yoga is the tail that keeps up the balance. For those who cannot pursue all these three forms of worship together in harmony and take up, therefore, Bhakti alone as their way, it is necessary always to remember that forms and ceremonials, though absolutely necessary for the progressive soul, have no other value than taking us on to that state in which we feel the most intense love to God. There is a little difference in opinion between the teachers of knowledge and those of love, though both admit the power of Bhakti. The Jnanis hold Bhakti to be an instrument of liberation, the Bhaktas look upon it both as the instrument and the thing to be attained. To my mind this is a distinction without much difference. In fact, Bhakti, when used as an instrument, really means a lower form of worship, and the higher form becomes inseparable from the lower form of realisation at a later stage. Each seems to lay a great stress upon his own peculiar method of worship, forgetting that with perfect love true knowledge is bound to come even unsought, and that from perfect knowledge true love is inseparable.


Bearing this in mind let us try to understand what the great Vedantic commentators have to say on the subject. In explaining the Sutra Âvrittirasakridupadeshât (Meditation is necessary, that having been often enjoined.), Bhagavân Shankara says, "Thus people say, 'He is devoted to the king, he is devoted to the Guru'; they say this of him who follows his Guru, and does so, having that following as the one end in view. Similarly they say, 'The loving wife meditates on her loving husband'; here also a kind of eager and continuous remembrance is meant." This is devotion according to Shankara. "Meditation again is a constant remembrance (of the thing meditated upon) flowing like an unbroken stream of oil poured out from one vessel to another. When this kind of remembering has been attained (in relation to God) all bandages break. Thus it is spoken of in the scriptures regarding constant remembering as a means to liberation.


This remembering again is of the same form as seeing, because it is of the same meaning as in the passage, 'When He who is far and near is seen, the bonds of the heart are broken, all doubts vanish, and all effects of work disappear' He who is near can be seen, but he who is far can only be remembered. Nevertheless the scripture says that he have to see Him who is near as well as Him who, is far, thereby indicating to us that the above kind of remembering is as good as seeing. This remembrance when exalted assumes the same form as seeing. . . . Worship is constant remembering as may be seen from the essential texts of scriptures. Knowing, which is the same as repeated worship, has been described as constant remembering. . . . Thus the memory, which has attained to the height of what is as good as direct perception, is spoken of in the Shruti as a means of liberation.


'This Atman is not to be reached through various sciences, nor by intellect, nor by much study of the Vedas. Whomsoever this Atman desires, by him is the Atman attained, unto him this Atman discovers Himself.' Here, after saying that mere hearing, thinking and meditating are not the means of attaining this Atman, it is said, 'Whom this Atman desires, by him the Atman is attained.' The extremely beloved is desired; by whomsoever this Atman is extremely beloved, he becomes the most beloved of the Atman. So that this beloved may attain the Atman, the Lord Himself helps. For it has been said by the Lord:


'Those who are constantly attached to Me and worship Me with love — I give that direction to their will by which they come to Me.' Therefore it is said that, to whomsoever this remembering, which is of the same form as direct perception, is very dear, because it is dear to the Object of such memory perception, he is desired by the Supreme Atman, by him the Supreme Atman is attained. This constant remembrance is denoted by the word Bhakti." So says Bhagavân Râmânuja in his commentary on the Sutra Athâto Brahma-jijnâsâ (Hence follows a dissertation on Brahman.). In commenting on the Sutra of Patanjali, Ishvara pranidhânâdvâ, i.e. "Or by the worship of the Supreme Lord" — Bhoja says, "Pranidhâna is that sort of Bhakti in which, without seeking results, such as sense-enjoyments etc., all works are dedicated to that Teacher of teachers."


Bhagavan Vyâsa also, when commenting on the same, defines Pranidhana as "the form of Bhakti by which the mercy of the Supreme Lord comes to the Yogi, and blesses him by granting him his desires". According to Shândilya, "Bhakti is intense love to God." The best definition is, however, that given by the king of Bhaktas, Prahlâda: "That deathless love which the ignorant have for the fleeting objects of the senses — as I keep meditating on Thee — may not that love slip away from my heart!" Love! For whom? For the Supreme Lord Ishvara. Love for any other being, however great cannot be Bhakti; for, as Ramanuja says in his Shri Bhâshya, quoting an ancient Âchârya, i.e. a great teacher:


"From Brahmâ to a clump of grass, all things that live in the world are slaves of birth and death caused by Karma; therefore they cannot be helpful as objects of meditation, because they are all in ignorance and subject to change." In commenting on the word Anurakti used by Shandilya, the commentator Svapneshvara says that it means Anu, after, and Rakti, attachment; i.e. the attachment which comes after the knowledge of the nature and glory of God; else a blind attachment to any one, e.g. to wife or children, would be Bhakti. We plainly see, therefore, that Bhakti is a series or succession of mental efforts at religious realisation beginning with ordinary worship and ending in a supreme intensity of love for Ishvara.
