There’s no East Way around the Stones in your Path

Visible Origami – February 13, 2011

Note; Yesterday I went to write about something that happened earlier in the week and decided I would just let it pass. Now I find I can’t write anything in Origami, which means I should go ahead and write about it since there are no names or locations involved. It is odd enough to qualify for a blog posting and maybe there’s something in there we can profit from. We’re all about profit here as long as there’s no interest charged. What a minute, we do charge interest. Interest is the price of admission (grin)

Dog Poet Transmitting…….

‘May your noses always be cold and wet.’

After a little interplay between myself and the subject of this post, the subject agreed to look at my chart and provide me with transits for the coming year. The subject originally approached me, although I broached the following actions first, though the person admitted they had been waiting for that. I learned that the subject lived alone and on very little and was making do with a cellphone; operating the thumbs to type the text to publish to the web.

The subject had a unique way of gleaning specific information that was of great interest to me (there’s that interest again). The subject missed a great many things, most especially all of the physical things that were wacking me during this period and other things that I also felt were important but… astrologers tend to zone in on those things which they find important and the issues this person raised were also important to me. I was curious enough, given that I was well aware that powerful changes were taking place in my life.

I listen to what people tell me about myself, whether it is out of the blue or connected to some kind of system, which this information was. I hadn’t had much to do with astrologers or astrology for decades, preferring intuitional reads on my situation and internal adaptations to the impact of forces on the interior and exterior. The pressure has been relentless over the last several years and ‘out of the blue’, around half a dozen astrologers just showed up and gave me their reads on the why and wherefore. This latest was focused on esoteric aspects and seemed to grove right in to what I was experiencing.

I sent this person some money, about double what this kind of an effort would usually cost but I always believe that generosity is a good policy most of the time. I was also struck by the rudimentary technology available to this person and I offered to send then a laptop, which was a good one but not getting any use around here anymore due to the presence of a higher end laptop. At first this person was thrilled at the idea and I was glad to have the laptop looked at to insure it was serviceable.

Then something happened and the person said that they could not accept the laptop because they didn’t take payment for spiritual services. I said that it wasn’t payment as much as it was a desire to see them able to perform at a much more rapid rate of speed, which would also provide for the possibility of a wider reach in their work. Something was off though. The person had turned cold and I was aware of it, though it was not immediately apparent.

The person had sent me the transits for January, seeing as the month was nearly up and this person wanted me to have the advantage of the advice before it was moot. Then I heard nothing from this person and February was a third finished. I could feel this person’s displeasure with me and thought I would write and ask if they wanted to send me February’s projections before they became history too.

The person replied and said that there was no reason to send me any further information because I was just tossing the advice into the dustbin and was generally rude and insulting in a way that surprised me. It turns out that this was allegedly based on the recent Visible Origami posting about spirit guides. It wasn’t about this though, because the negative vibrations were happening prior to the publication of that posting. I thought about it and realized that it had to be connected to my having sent the link for events that happened to me the past Spring. It was after that when I noticed the change in vibrations.

The person told me that they had warned me about illusions and had been speaking specifically about two entities that asked if they could be seated in my mind and assist me in my travels as I went through my days. This person wanted to give me the impression that I had been warned ahead of time concerning this event. This turned out not to be true as I read back over our communications and there weren’t two of them anyway.

What I realized is that the person doing the transits actually wanted to be in the position that I had given over to the so called ‘adepts’ who wanted to provide me with advice. The astrologer said they wanted to push me out of my body and take over etc. Nothing could be further from the truth and it’s a real stretch for someone not intimately involved with the whole exchange, to make sweeping assumptions that my own experience shows to be otherwise. I see now that the person is a control freak and wanted to be able to be in charge of my actions, even to the point of retroactively constructing dangers and events that weren’t actually what happened, nor did they occur at the time or in the way that was retroactively presented.

In other words, I wasn’t supposed to be in communication with entities from the inner planes and I wasn’t supposed to write about it either. How I could have known all of this is beyond me. This person said that I didn’t want their advice. I said that that was unlikely since I was soliciting it and paying close attention to it, however limited it was, in terms of covering the gamut of what was happening to me. I said, “You told me that I was going to be having supernatural experiences the way other people have Cheerios for breakfast, I’m having those experiences but now you are telling me not to have them.” It was all very confusing and I didn’t feel like going on any further with it. I figured I needed to get in touch with a jyotish astrologer, especially someone who would be able to accurately read the effects of the kundalini on my situation; someone who is anchored in the tradition from which a particular understanding of this force proceeds.

What happened is that this person freaked out after reading what happened to me and made a whole lot of assumptions, which were based on nothing real. It is highly unlikely that I could be pushed out of my body or co-opted in any way for long, except as an instructional exercise; primarily because my master has residence within me and nothing happens to me without permission. I am in someone else’s hands at all times and I’ve had more proof of that than writing here, nonstop for the next two weeks, could provide. It is interesting to me how all of the motives and intentions of this person, revealed themselves with such clarity, when I simply sat and studied the series of events. There wasn’t much I could say to the person. I tried to explain a little, knowing it would have little effect. The person sees themselves as an enlightened seer and any diversion from recommended behavior is met with a sharp stick; even when the recommended behavior has not been offered, but merely retroactively inserted, even when the recommended guidelines are fuzzy and imprecise. The best thing in these situations is to walk away.

I could go into the dichotomy about the laptop being an impure gift and the money being gladly accepted but that leads nowhere useful. I don’t want to give the reader the idea that I have astrology on my mind because I don’t. The people who engaged me in it just sort of showed up and what followed, followed. I did have an interest in what was happening to me. I knew it was shaking my world and intended to continue and it always helps to have impartial reads into the matter. The only reason I would look up a jyotish astrologer now is because the previous effort was left incomplete and I’m the kind of person who likes to at least study the loose ends for a bit before I go back to what I was always doing which was to “stop, look and listen”.

I don’t bear this person any ill will. I’m a little disappointed that so many people turn out to be flakes but that is the nature of the times. It’s a weird sensation to accept information from someone and then have them come back and start hammering on you because you didn’t follow all of the directions they didn’t give you exactly as you didn’t get them. Meanwhile, I’m not possessed or between bodies at the moment and my whole talk about the spirit guides and visitors from the inner planes was all about the knowledge and conversation of the Holy Guardian Angel but I didn’t want to mention that. I prefer that these things be intuited by the reader so that they only get what they are supposed to get and so that they are involved in the process; getting the meaning, sorting out the ideas and making subtractions and additions of their own.

What this is all about is to say that there are some strange people out there and a lot more experts than we can really use and it can be confusing, especially when you mean well and then you want to say, “Hey, wait a minute, it’s not like that”. No matter what you say or do though, it doesn’t matter. People set things up a certain way to create certain scenarios to begin with and it’s no surprise that so many people are alone and marooned on the Planet My Way, surrounded by on ramps to The Highway. It doesn’t seem to occur to them that they are in orbit too. I tend to agree with Shakespeare, “A wise man rules the stars”.

I enjoy varied perspectives, courtesy of ancient sciences and I enjoy sifting and comparing information, mostly while I sleep (grin). I have a curious nature and I’m always learning something. However, everything I contact or encounter gets held up to the mirror of the self, or handed over to the one who arranges the circumstances and events of my life. I get the most important things from an interior well and I would have to say that anything useful or valuable that I ever say here comes from there too.

Now, if any of the intrepid readers out there have some contact with a jyotish astrologer or want to fill in the gaps of what I didn’t get because of petulance ruling the day in certain quarters then, I’m all ears, which does make my face look funny at the moment. I’ve got another anonymous reader who is pissed at me and keeps showing up at the blogs to attempt to insert digs and I’m not publishing that nonsense because it’s not about clearing anything up or understanding anything. It’s just an effort to injure and I’m not in the business of being on the receiving end of that. The Buddha was once asked what to do about abuse conferred on one by others. The Buddha replied, “If someone brings you a gift and you do not accept it, to whom does the gift belong”?

I try to be easy going, especially since I don’t have all the answers. I try to be accepting of alternative perspectives. I can’t learn anything if I am not but… some people don’t have the truth as their objective or they wouldn’t be at such pains to alter the record. Some people just want to injure because they got injured somewhere previously or they’re annoyed if someone listens to you when you should be listening to them. It’s complicated. Every case is different. We can only do our best and adjust ourselves as we go. Shortly I expect to go through some thing that will make it a great deal easier for me to understand what’s going on. At the moment I am between here and there and simply have to span the distance in the meantime. It would be a real improvement in this world if people were as ready to share their love as they are to share the misery of their imagined slights.

End Transmission…….

There will be a radio show tonight at 7:30 Central time. Or you can download from here tomorrow.
