Smoking Mirrors – Aug 13, 2019
Dog Poet Transmitting…….
Last night I watched Five Easy Pieces. I didn’t like the film the first time I saw it but my friend wanted to see it, having never seen it. I noticed how similar Karen Black’s features were to Faye Dunaway (to a degree) but more so Julie Christie. This got me reflecting on the faces of actresses and actors, in different generations, up to the present time and… how similar so many of them were to one another in the same generation. This set me to thinking about the mental and emotional climate in each generation; how similar were the thoughts and feelings, how similar the public faces were and how similar the hoi polloi and lumpen proles as well… the common threads that ran through each of the generational segments. I mused on that period of grunge, where the whining music of the times was so popular; Nirvana, Stone Temple Pilots, Smashing Pumpkins… all that nihilistic, heroin fueled dissonance with the Satanic undertones..
I watched through a kind of mental kaleidoscope, almost a proctoscope, as rap first manifested in political and social anger and then degenerated into bitches, ho’s and bling. I studied the masses of people from each following group of time lapse dancers …and it was a startling thing. Each generation marched through an ever thickening fog of materialism and masturbating technologies, until we come to the present day… an en masse robot army of thumbfucking cellphone addicts, perpetually bent over a tiny screen… about to be bent over in a whole other way… hour after hour… somewhere in the dark room of a solitary exile, the screen flickers with a blue light that flashes off of their haunted faces. Soon they will fade like wraiths from this world we know and re-materialize as ballroom dancers in The Overlook Hotel.
This is the time of the harvesting of souls. It is a Grand Apocalypse. Because of the intensity of materialism, the degree of difficulty in ascension is great indeed. The significance of this time frame we are in, is massive, and that is why there are billions of people here, who promptly forgot why they came, as soon as they arrived. If you have the Faith, Certitude and Determination that is required, you can make a quantum leap spiritually at this time. Every moment is precious and that which you spend on acquiring the necessary Faith, Certitude and Determination is priceless. It is an investment of a magnitude that cannot be rendered in any math we have possession of.
I am not concerned with whether one is a follower of Christ. Everyone of true heart, in whose heart compassion sings and whose actions are directed toward selfless service, no matter how that may be camouflaged, due to the dangers of the time, are followers of The Master Wayshower, whether they know it or not. Religious fundies with their, “my way or the highway” are quick to label anyone who does not fit the narrow parameters of their criteria; all so quick to send people to Hell and to judge the heart’s intentions of others. The Christ spirit knows who is who …and it is through the medium of love that the master is able to identify his own. I am a follower of Christ but I am not a Christian. I will not associate with those who damn others through doctrines they have no understanding of. Their Karma is soon to run over their Dogma.
There is something so profound taking place this very minute and it is hidden from the eyes of the world, especially hidden from carnal eyes, where the desire force interprets everything through the lens of magnetic attractive heat that generates a thick smoke, due to the composition of what is burning. To understand the difference between Heaven and Hell, one has only to understand what is consuming them. Hell is compressed and confining and pressure creates heat. Heaven is wide and expansive. The nature of the residents is one of liberation because they have all learned the secret, which is to GIVE YOURSELF AWAY. The opposite of that is to acquire everything for yourself. To have the mindset that is focused on getting for self, is to create confinement in a personal Hell. In the process of giving yourself away, your real self manifests and it is eternal and flushed with everlasting bliss and joy.
What I am saying here is expressed through the medium of words and that will NEVER be an accurate and complete description. This is one of the reasons that no matter what anyone may think, NO ONE achieves Liberation or Self Realization under their own steam. All true seekers must eventually come to that place where they meet The Guide, who knows the way. There are a number of reasons why no one ever attains to the heights of spiritual understanding under their own power. There is a comment in the Bible where it is said, “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.”
The amount of false prophets and New Age Snake Walkers is a very large number in these times, because… to serve the light you cannot serve yourself. You can’t ride around in limos and private jets and with gold Rolex’s on your wrists; looking down in admiration of it, like the Dali Lama. Spare me the apologia’s, I’ve heard them all. I remember the commentary on Christ, speaking to that particular person; “Then Jesus beholding him loved him, and said unto him, One thing thou lackest: go thy way, sell whatsoever thou hast, and give to the poor, and thou shalt have treasure in heaven: and come, take up the cross, and follow me.” We all know how that worked out, or… maybe we don’t.
There is a great deal that people on this material plane do not get about the Kingdom of Heaven. The glory and riches there, so far exceed anything the human imagination can envision that to attempt to explain it is an effort in futility. One of the best comments I’ve heard about it and which I often repeat, is- “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.” I’ve had brief glimpses into that plane of existence and I am convinced that what I saw was a very small part of what is there but… it has been enough to fix my attention on the goal, with no concern for the cost of the trip. It confounds me that so many people do not get it. I am astonished at how few do. You know them when you meet them; the genuine atmosphere of their presence says it all. They are shining with an interior light.
The season of life in which we presently find ourselves is unlike other times. We are in the midst of a spiritual war. One side is seeking to lift humanity to the next level, into the Aquarian Age, the Age of Brotherhood. The other side is seeking to pull it down into perdition. It will be an individual thing in every case. Those who think they can accomplish under their own power will fail. Those who are utterly reliant upon the Supreme Being are already victorious.
Two worlds are presently coming into being; a world of plenty and a world of want. Each are predicated upon where any particular person’s treasures are to be found. The enduring and everlasting spirit is a spirit of abundance. It is a literal cornucopia and those in unity with that spirit, are heir to all that that which they are reliant upon possesses. The result of selfishness is to find oneself alone; alone in a barren field with no one but Saturn for company. Fate is a harsh task mistress. There is no question in my mind that the majority of the population laughs and ridicules the idea of selfless service and giving oneself away. A portion of these are merely indifferent to spiritual possibilities, because their motto in this world is, “I want it and I want it NOW.” Technology has accommodated this desire.
Strange doings are afoot in the world. Across the fertile Midwest of the US, floods have killed this year’s harvest. Similar conditions are taking place in other environments. Chinese Pigs are dying by the millions. Hatred is being stirred up between the religions and between the different colors of humanity and yet… and yet- this is allegedly an age of brotherhood on the doorstep. What appears will be different from person to person; to each person it will be given according to their faith. The return of Christ is not what is imagined in the traditional sense, of a shining white robed being, coming down from the sky at the head of an army. Christ is to return within the hearts of humanity, in those hearts where a place has been prepared. This is the fruit of an age of brotherhood. He will not appear in every heart, many hearts are closed off …but this does not have to be and there is time yet for each and every soul to address the circumstance.
Consider the lessons of history. This world has been a stage for enormous genocides and near unimaginable torments. In Tribe-Communist manufactured Soviet Russia, tens of millions were murdered. The same was the case in Communist China with Mao. We have had some period of extended peace in the First World countries, which have waged their wars in Third World countries. Massive immigration out of wars orchestrated by bankers has rendered these First World countries vulnerable to terrible possibilities. Open your eyes! Bankers are now at work manifesting new wars in new landscapes.
NEVER discount Lady Nature.
It really is going to come down to who and on what you depend. The days come and go, as lives are squandered in foolish pursuits. Sooner or later the piper will come calling.
