Dog Poet Transmitting…….
A long time ago, a psychiatrist gave the opinion that I was a ‘chronic’ Schizophrenic; meaning- incurable. My response was that most people have a fenced in mind and that the fence is the parameter of the self defined real; but has the self been defined as real? Sometimes a part of the fence gets broken and you can flow out. Of course something else can also flow in.
In the material world and most especially in the Kali Yuga, it can be a good thing to have a fenced in mind. Alternatively, consider what sorts of creatures are kept behind fences. Consider the fate of livestock. If your karma is good, you are unlikely to be mistreated. If it is bad, do the math. In either case, the killing floor awaits. Many human beings live in a manner not unlike livestock. They embrace the controls placed on them and the security they think they are getting but the same fate awaits them, there is no security against Death, except that one has found the one who has mastered Death and made them a friend. Such conditions exist on both good and evil planes. As the Bible says, “Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed.”
Sleep is to be understood as death and we are apprised of the cyclic nature of existence, every time we go to sleep. Generally we die every day. When one orgasms one also dies. This is why the French (of course it would be the French) describe it as, La Petite Mort. Sex and Death have many a curious connection with each other and very often the dead animals we see on or by the side of the road are in the pursuit of Sex. Of course, food and migration account for a certain amount but, a thinking and introspective person would do well to consider those habitual events, which they participate in and seek to find the deeper meaning of them.
A certain amount of artists are schizophrenics. This is where the inspiration comes from. Mystics hear voices, I can attest to that. People who are insane also hear voices and they can be benign or dangerous. If one considers the virtues and hindrances of a fenced mind, one should come to some impression of there being only one mind and that what we call our individuality and personality, are the result of the fencing we make, within the expanse of the one mind. I had the truth of this demonstrated to me in a most convincing fashion and more than once.
Many people need a fenced mind because they are ill equipped to deal with what resides in the dark unknown. That darkness is ignorance and all the fears and horrors of the subconscious are manifestations of forces that we have not mastered. Here is an example of the manner by which one masters these forces and makes them articulate.
In times of material darkness, the clarity that might be possible for the masses is a rats nest of confusion and disorder. Religions have become businesses, no different than your brick and mortar stores. The only difference is that their product cannot be seen. Some religions have preachers and priests that can make convincing arguments about how the unseen can be observed moving through the seen. It often then metamorphoses into a cash register. When religions are new and also legitimate, they are still infused with the power of the teachings of the founder. Eventually it degenerates into statues and artifacts, using cant and dogma to hold it together. Then you have fenced in religions for fenced in minds.
If one is sincere about their pursuit of the ineffable- for the right reasons- one will discover that there is a teacher, a guide, a companion, who has already arrived previously at the destination the seeker is moving in. Angels cross over the world, ceaselessly observing the possibilities of light beneath their course. When any evidence of the luminous is noted, the awareness of this is instantaneously transmitted to the ineffable and then to the servant of the ineffable who is the most efficacious for the necessity of support, succor and protection.
It has been the case that we are far more concerned with dangers from without than with dangers from within. My considered observation is that that should be reversed (grin). It is an impossibility… that I would ever be able communicate… how vitally important the presence of God can be in life. If one is in communication with the ineffable, one is then connected to everything that can ever be known and which also is the substance and life of all things and also apart and to itself. It’s the whole ball game.
If… because of fear, you batten your hatches, hoping it will keep the rain out and that the sun will find a way in… you have only isolated yourself with your fear. Fear is a shadow and it increases in size and density of being, according to your faith in it. Much of this happens subconsciously. Imagine your life to be a garden. If you do not tend it, aggressive things will come into play. Your garden will turn to disorder and those things that bear no fruit will occupy the place. The wind and rain bring both life and destruction. All the forces of Nature can be positive or negative; Nature, unaided, always fails. If you should choose to walk the path upon which angels give guidance, all the forces of Nature and else-wise will flock to your side as an automatic response.
The human mind is a marvelous thing. We have all seen evidence of surprising events made possible by the power of it. A small group of souls forged the idea of this country. “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” Fellowship is the catalyst. In other words, the sum of the whole is greater than the sum of the parts. There’s your special ingredient.
My friends… make the ineffable the centerpiece of your life. Make it the first entity you turn to in conversation. Make is so that you are ever and always speaking only to the ineffable. Make it so that you expect only the ineffable to appear. Whatever question you may have about anything, address it to the ineffable. Begin your day with the ineffable, as if it were the ineffable who brought you awake. Remind yourself at that time that you are awakening into a dream (unless, of course, you are one of those rare souls who have escaped the web.) and hold that thought as you go through your morning ablutions. As you radiate, express and contain yourself, you will come into a state of continuous, elevated awareness.
It is the ancillary and secondary considerations that don’t get the necessary attention and which accounts for our winding up more vulnerable and exposed than we may like. Some say the Aquarian Age is here and some say it has not yet come. This is the problem with cusp periods, their length of influence, especially in times of material darkness, is uncertain and also dependent on the degree of immersion in respect of every sleeper. Some flowers bloom early. Some come in their time and some never arrive at all. It is important to know the difference between real escape and false hope because the dream-weaver is fully capable of dialing you right back in. This is the birth channel of false prophets. It is a kind of ‘too big for their britches’ syndrome.
Everything in your life depends on a harmonious relationship with your seemingly separate selves. In the manifest and most especially in times of material darkness, the demarcation lines are notable. We partition ourselves off and depending on the climate of the times, we are antagonistic or supportive of the parts. You are three in one, the same as these realms are demonstrated through- ‘as above, so below’.
Your subconscious see everything in pictures. It’s like a child. Your self conscious is your state of awareness adjustment to the moment; be you so or be you not. Your super-conscious is the overseeing awareness that comes into play to the degree that you seek its influence; not seeking it puts you into the machine like playing field of cause and effect.
God is real. I am not real but… I am becoming real as what is unreal is burned away, by the love of mutual pursuit. God is always looking for you, harder than you are looking for God. That should inspire you in truly profound way; “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.”
The trifecta, the hat trick, is always available as long as there is breath on this plane. See that you have one thing on your mind and the same upon your lips in every moment.
If something is not true, it will show itself to be so because it cannot self validate. If something is true it self validates and leads to greater truths. Put an end to Sisyphean struggles. Master the mind and let the heart then swallow it up as the one resides in the protection of the other and performs the true miracle in a continuing demonstration of it. That should serve for the moment and all moments to come.
