Reflections in a Petri Dish — April 25, 2019
Dog Poet Transmitting…….
By this time, it should be unpleasantly clear that there is a concerted effort afoot to seduce the public mind into an ever more coarsening view and performance of existence. Through identity confusion, which is the antithesis of Self Realization. Through the enforced elevation of ‘diversity’ over ‘unity’. Through the perversion of natural behavior, via the celebration of unnatural behavior and most especially (taking a page- or 2- from 1984) by hijacking the language and making it the bitch of Satanic Doctrine, we have arrived in this mysterious way station, between what we have forgotten and what we are told we know. This is the land of despotic minorities, who are made ever more cruel and tyrannous by the inner knowing that they are not what they say they are. They have been rendered into a sad mockery for the entertainment of psychopaths.
There is no difference between President Camacho of Idiocracy and the manufactured Kanye West that certain nasty cabals are grooming for a most important persona in the yet to be unveiled, brain damaged future. Presently they have him assuming the mantle of pop tart preacher of a Shake ‘n Bake’ gospel to D-list celebrities and the mesmerized moths who dance in and out of the invisible flames.
We’ve heard about his selling his soul to the devil. We’ve heard it about all sorts of people in ‘the industry’. Generally, the media that processes the sewage of the times into the Soylent Green being served as a real meal, tends to make fun of any and all claims about what is patently obvious if one believes, as do I, that, “by their works ye shall know them” (ye?). It is observable that some number of people, possessed of zero inspiration and talent, are surprisingly successful. One could say, well, that’s just another indication of how bankrupt the culture is. I happen to know that one cannot actually sell their soul, since it does not belong to them but… one can certainly be convinced that they have done so. By the time anyone is in consideration of selling their soul, they have already removed all the value. Meaning, they are already in the sway of that force, which is as misunderstood as is the presumed alternative.
There is a great deal of confusion as to what the greatest spiritual prize is. Some might think it to be going to Heaven for ever and ever, except… it doesn’t work like that. Usually Heaven is on the meter and at some point one has to return here to finish ‘the job’. The ultimate achievement is accomplished ‘here’ and that is a state of being- a state of consciousness, of awareness. Though it might be named differently at different times and in different places, it is always some variant of Self Realization. It is the result of ‘know thyself’ and has something to do with ‘as a man thinketh’. I’m not suggesting this is the sole province of men. That has already been overruled by more than one feminine being, among them, the source of the quotes at the end of this brief.
That which is called The Devil, has as its agenda, the manifestation of confusion, discord, strife and all manner of similar and all of these are for the purpose of hindering Self Realization. The job of the Devil is to keep you from realizing who you are. Jesus Christ made this clear in his own way but that is seldom the argument given by those who purport to speak for him. It all comes back to Jesus being a man and Christ being a station; “Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.”
It’s a timeless game that goes on here and there are manufactured archetypal characters to play this role and that. In the end one might find themselves saying, as did Alice; “you’re nothing but a pack of cards.” There is, of course, more than a passing association between this and the arcane meaning of The Tarot.
There’s a price that comes with fame and fortune and a great many things that go on behind the scenes. Even the light of day can just as often not be the light of day. On the common level, episodes of chronic crazy are multiplying like bacteria. There’s another version here and yet another version here. You’ve seen the lizard person here a couple of times too. All over the world, reality has been stood on its head, as people march to the beat of what they are told by those they have given the power to tell them. If you have a job you want to keep. If you have a family that relies on you for their bread and board. If you have a standing in your community then you have give a certain value to them and you are well described by Francis Bacon who said; “He that hath wife and children hath given hostages to fortune.”
Certain periodicals that, with the invention of toilet paper, no longer serve their former purpose, are creatively engaged in bringing certain things to your attention. With the invention of the internet, the paperless aspect of it… heh heh. As you read these articles and if you still possess an objective mindset, you can see that much of the time, it’s not about what it seems to be about, while still being about that, only coming from a more convoluted perspective. Sometimes the best way to promote something is to not appear to be promoting it but rather let the manner of presentation speak volumes.
Only a few decades ago, you would never have imagined society or the culture to be manifesting in the way that it does. Aldous Huxley, George Orwell, H.G. Wells and others, were capable of seeing well ahead by simply paying attention to the trends of the moment and when one has a conscious grasp of things like Materialism, they can readily intuit what stages will occur as B follows A, as C follows B. Therefore it is not a reach to consider that where liberty is held in high regard, or where it was instrumental in the construction of a social or political form that… tyranny might well be up around the bend. It comes to you under the guise of protecting your freedoms. As Ben Franklin wisely put it; “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” One should pay careful attention to just what liberties and freedoms are most defended these days.
Those of us who know that the world is a projection of the mind, are in a position to know if the light at the end of the tunnel is a train. Maybe it’s two motorcycles and they will just go round you? Those who know that the world is a projection of the mind, possess a powerful magic as a defense against powerful magics. It is crystal clear that something… someone… several someones, is most tirelessly and relentlessly engaged in guiding or herding or leading the populations in a particular direction. At the same time it is easy to see that the endless creation of comforts and conveniences ever further and further removes the individual from their basic survival skills. Oh well…
It’s a tough call in today’s world to be on the side of the angels. Of course, given the nature of the world, this is why angels are not the dewy eyed and gentle caricatures that new agers with names like ‘Hallelujah Rainbow Morning’ might imagine. I’ve had the odd encounter a time or two so I know ‘somewhat’ whereof I speak. It take a degree of sand to take a stand in respect (or disrespect) of that which seeks to push you to the side, or compel you in one creative way or another to ‘follow suit’ as the general press of conformity might demand. There are those who wisely note but do not speak and then there are those who were constructed to speak. In certain times, the wise, knowing what the inevitable course is, retreat to whatever version of the Himalayas is available to them. Of course, those who know that the world is a projection of the mind can be anywhere for that matter and irrespective of all the best laid plans, we all have some destiny we are slotted toward until… we don’t.
There is a greater and higher destiny to which we are all heir to. Unfortunately, it is a common misfortune to miss that boat because some thing(s) other attracted or interceded. That is the sad commentary of life, in one way or another out of countless ways, we concede or compromise with the manifest, as it presents itself in the bandwidth of the senses.
Let me close with a more complete selection of those thoughts which accompany that statement which I often post here about there being “a road steep and thorny” by the off maligned HPB.
“The Golden Stairs
A clean life, an open mind, A pure heart, an eager intellect,
An unveiled spiritual perception, A brotherliness for all,
A readiness to give and receive advice and instruction,
A loyal sense of duty to the Teacher, A willing obedience to the behests of TRUTH,
Once we have placed our confidence in, And believe that Teacher to be in possession of it;
A courageous endurance of personal injustice, A brave declaration of principles,
A valiant defense of those who are unjustly attacked, And a constant eye to the ideal of human progression, And perfection which the secret science depicts—
These are the golden stairs Up the steps of which the learner may climb
To the Temple of Divine Wisdom.
There is a road, steep and thorny, beset with perils of every kind,
but yet a road, and it leads to the very heart of the Universe:
I can tell you how to find those who will show you the secret gateway that opens inward only,
and closes fast behind the neophyte for evermore.
There is no danger that dauntless courage cannot conquer;
there is no trial that spotless purity cannot pass through;
there is no difficulty that strong intellect cannot surmount.
For those who win onwards there is a reward past all telling – the power to bless and save humanity; for those who fail, there are other lives in which success may come.
Do not be afraid of your difficulties. Do not wish you could be in other circumstances than you are. For when you have made the best of an adversity, it becomes the stepping stone to a splendid opportunity.
Whatever plane our consciousness may be acting in, both we and the things belonging to that plane are, for the time being, our only realities. As we rise in the scale of development, we perceive that during the stages through which we have passed, we mistook shadows for realities, and the upward progress of the Ego is a series of progressive awakenings, each advance bringing with it the idea that now, at last, we have reached “reality”; but only when we shall have reached the absolute Consciousness, and blended our own with it, shall we be free from the delusions produced by Maya [illusion].
It is an occult law moreover, that no man can rise superior to his individual failings without lifting, be it ever so little, the whole body of which he is an integral part. In the same way no one can sin, nor suffer the effects of sin, alone. In reality, there is no such thing as ‘separateness’ and the nearest approach to that selfish state which the laws of life permit is in the intent or motive.
Theosophy is who Theosophy does, not thinks, not studies, not feels but does.
The Universe is worked and guided from within outwards.
A Hindu is a born mystic, and the luxuriant nature of his country has made him a zealous pantheist
Inaction in a deed of mercy becomes an action in a deadly sin.
Before the soul can see, the Harmony within must be attained, and fleshly eyes be rendered blind to all illusion.
No man can swim unless he enters deep water.
The end of man is an action and not a thought, though it were the noblest Key To Theosophy
From strength to strength, from the beauty and perfection of one plane to the greater beauty and perfection of another, with accessions of new glory, of fresh knowledge and power in each cycle, such is the destiny of every Ego, which thus becomes its own savior in each world and incarnation.”
I can’t think of anything further to add to that. May guidance come to one and all, before catastrophe appears.
