Reflections in a Petri Dish — June 20, 2017
Dog Poet Transmitting…….
Yes… there was a reason for presenting, from my perspective, serious doubt upon this whole ‘breathairian’ thing which, like anything else makes me want to look into the Cui Bono end but… then again, it’s not that interesting to me but it does fit a pattern of phenomena, like the Earth being flat and the pretty outrageous claims made by the Maharishi’s TM enterprise, which is operating in the billions of dollars arena. Some number of them are claiming that through the practice of TM, they can levitate, fly and become invisible. There are Photo-Shopping, Youtube videos of some of these levitators, which does, should it have come to your attention, rhyme with meditators. The videos catch them in mid bounce off of their ‘bouncy pillows’, which, if I remember correctly, are available through the TM shopping chain; not sure if that’s bricks and mortar or virtual; probably both.
There’s a sort of interview that happens at this site. A lot of what I read in the initial back and forth I would not argue with because, if you study at all in the Asian Indian, Hindu system you run across a lot of this and it should be noted that anyone has access to this information. Most importantly… read the comments that follow it all. I found the Twinkies mention typical of the kinds of things God sets up ahead of time on the way to WTF? The ads are annoying but just keep reading and you will arrive at some very amusing commentary. I should point out here that I have run into very similar hypocrisies in nearly every one of these movements that come and go and have been coming and going for somewhile. A few centuries ago there was a cult in India where the followers routinely walked into the ocean and fed themselves to sharks because they believed they were then assimilated into a higher order; maybe they were. I’d have been a lot more impressed by Heaven’s Gate if the final photos showed only empty sneakers but not the bodies of the people wearing them. Sure, they might have just migrated to some other location in the hinterlands, leaving the sneakers behind but… what do I know? Especially since they did not leave the sneakers behind.
People… I tend to look into things. I look into sources, even sources from atheists and PC junkies. Here’s a further extension of the same article from these sensation seekers and both of them were printed in the yellow-sheet (sensation seeking) British press. Who makes a argument for conditions like this by saying that not having to eat gives them more money to travel? AND… if they are eating several times a week then they are NOT Breathairians. I usually eat once a day and these days that doesn’t amount to much. The extremes I went to in prison were pretty interesting, given that I survived and thrived but… Oh well, if you are eating a few times a week (for social reasons? Heh heh) then you are not living on breath and the prana extracted from it. People do exist in these miraculous states. People do levitate. There are skywalkers. There are people who have one, or an array of siddhis but it is not GENERALLY (or probably ever) found in these groups of people seeking after celebrity and personal gain and don’t tell me this ain’t the case here.
Finally, on this subject, let us go to the most financially rewarded and well known Breathairian fraudster presently milking the zombie undead.
This sort of thing and many variations from Eckhart Tolle’s paid (and expensive) front row celebrity seating… to representations of permutations of all the things listed in this link, there is a pretty large collection of individuals moving through the populace with milk buckets in hand. Given that there are billions of us now, it stands to reason that there is going to be a segment of psychopathic and sociopathic personalities that will be at work gathering the swag as payment for their singularity in spiritual ways. There are hundreds of Christian evangelists that are doing real good, “bringing in the sheaves” via real and electronic collection plates. The potential for fraud is always greatest when the subject matter deals with what is incomprehensible and unknowable, as is the case with the ineffable.
Anyone can come around and say practically anything and God isn’t known for jumping right into the mix at every necessity. This is not the same as anyone getting away with everything because, moments of exposure and epiphany are all arranged up the road for when the time is right. No one gets away with anything and you would think that that should be the first thing any of us would keep in mind as we go about whatever it is that we think our business is but… for some reason, this cold hard fact seems to escape the minds of those most in need of the consideration of it.
I was in a conversation the last day or two with someone who objects to my comments on Breatharians because, basically, don’t I want the world to be a better place and on and on from there. All through the conversation I could see we were having two conversations. From his part, he wants to believe certain things are true without it being necessary for these things to be PROVEN and in every case, except for bonafide and rare yogis, they fail to prove. In most cases it is all some variant of sensationalism in search of money and celebrity. God knows I wish this were not true. God knows I wish the world were filled with honest and decent people but it is not. It is filled with potentially honest and decent people.
We have to recognize the times in which we live. We have to be aware of the force, the living conscious force of Materialism as it acts on us. We have to consider what has happened to certain tens of millions of dollars that so called teachers have taken in and I’ve seen all the apologies for these people; my favorite and the one you most often see is… “well you can get all kinds of stuff from him for free. You don’t have to pay for these things, they are there if you want to. Eckhart TV for 20 dollars a month is there if you want to.
It might not be a consideration in the minds of most people who come around here but, I could charge for what I do. There are enough people who would pay me if I refused to do it otherwise, or I set up one of those sites where you have access to a certain amount BUT… if you become a member! You get all that inner circle stuff. I refuse to do this. I get by on donations and they aren’t anything extraordinary but I don’t want much and I have a small pension and I used to play in clubs now and then and am rehearsing hours a day now to do that again; while I’m still here (grin) BUT… I KNOW what happens with money. I KNOW. There is so much I do not know but I know about money. I know what it does, or rather what the love of and hunger for it does.
I’m sure I’ve been rich now and again (I hope I handled it well- probably not always). I know I’ve been poor; more recently on that one but as time has brought me into the latter stages of my tenure here, the ineffable has been more than kind. Let me say the ineffable has got a weird sense of humor and let me point out one more thing which I find of the greatest importance but which others may not find as important; God doesn’t just own all the power in the universe. He owns everything, including all the money and if he wants that to rain down on me (or anyone) like a monsoon, he will. Don’t believe all that horseshit about The Prince of this World granting you wealth and power over all things. The only place he gets the ability to do any of what he makes it look like he can do comes from GOD… period.
The Devil that took Jesus out on the mountaintop to offer him the whole world was just God in disguise checking in. There is ONE POWER and ONE POWER alone and nothing in books or even experience or anything else is going to give you revelation or the real ‘secret handshake’, ONLY God does and can do that. Everything else is a load of shit. I don’t care how much you read, or how intensely you study. I don’t care what siddhis you get. I don’t care who your cronies and contacts are… ONLY GOD can deliver what is worth having. Sure… you can be some version of Hitler or Churchill… Alexander or Socrates at some point. You can be THE rock star of the times or the sex siren of a couple of decades, You can get all of this. You are going to have to pay for it and I could go into the cost of it right now but I won’t. Let’s just say you have to play all of the roles around you that make it all seem like what seems like it is is happening is happening, for it to happen and that is… beforehand or afterwards but you got to pay for it. I get what I get free and I give it away for free. Sure I suffered. Big fucking deal… and I KNOW most would have dropped off to the side before this but, really, I didn’t have a choice. I wasn’t able to drop off to the side or maybe I would have. I’ll never know now. So nothing I did was any great shakes cause I had no choice. The agreement went in before the label went on.
People take themselves way too seriously. You want to be important? You want to have an impact? You want ANYTHING, in the best possible way? Serve the ineffable. Lose yourself in the ineffable and I guarantee he will come up with some surprising denouements, adventure tales, classic endings that turn into endless expressions of the ever more refined and improved expression of LOVE that is what made and really maintains us and what lifts us out of the darkness that conceals it from us.
I’m not here to argue to validity or lack of it in any of these carnival acts. I think the articles and the sources of the articles speak for themselves and they didn’t suddenly show up in the Crass Media by accident. If I have offended anyone with my plain speaking, or my not taking 20 pages to go into detail, or my trusting my intuitive nature maybe more than some would like, I am sorry but… that is just how it is… Whatever it is that got me to this very moment is what got me here and I trust it completely. That hasn’t always been the case, even recently …but… it is now.
