Visible Origami – Feb 15, 2020
Dog Poet Transmitting…….
The timeless question of Evil; what is it? Can it be inflexibly identified? Does it shift in meaning? I see Good and Evil demonstrated in the undulatory locomotion of a snake. That serpentine slide, first to one side and then to the other. Certainly, much of what was once considered Evil is now no longer so defined. The same applies to Good. Sometimes it is more a question of Smart and Stupid and it can be said that the reason there seems to be so much Evil in the world is because there is so much Stupid.
Only purity can restore virtue out of vice. Vice is the product of our lower nature in action and Virtue is what is expressed by our higher nature. People tend to opt more for one than the other and it defines them. In times of Material Darkness, the lower nature comes to the fore. Excess is celebrated. Indulgence, like Greed, is considered Good. At least Ayn Rand thought so and that was some time ago. Rand’s birth name was, ‘Alisa Zinov’yevna Rosenbaum’. She died just as The Decade of Unbridled Greed was winding up into the modus operandi for the ‘Me Generation’. It was originally said to have been The 70’s. It may have started there but it went full bore in the 80’s. It hit its zenith when Cocaine went mainstream.
I personally, broadly define Evil as the product of Selfishness and Good as the product of Selflessness. The latter reaches its most refined expression in a mother’s love. Yes… I am being overly simplistic and exceedingly broad in my reach and exceptions abound. I tend to rely on the reader to interpret what I am really trying to say. People ‘who want to understand’ WILL GET a modicum on the surface and if they thoroughly chew… ruminating……. much more will come to them over time.
There are those who come here to taunt and belittle, never realizing they are performing it on themselves. It has zero impact on me. As Buddha said to a questioner, “If someone brings you a present and you do not accept it, to whom does the present then belong?” I have a nattering nabob who comes here seeking to harass me over cant and dogma that is IRRELEVANT. He/she/it keeps mentioning a crayfish, rather than lobster for the pool before the tarot card, The Moon. IT MAKES NO DIFFERENCE!!! It could be a snail, or anything with a carapace because THAT IS THE IMPORTANT FEATURE. Much of The Tarot is fluid imagery. Certain symbols and presentations are important but the environment and other more subtle variants are fluid, SO LONG AS THE ‘CORRECT’ COLORS, SYMBOLS AND OTHER FEATURES ARE PRESENT, all is well. I know this… so I am hardly affected by the uninformed, who are ONLY seeking to antagonize me anyway. They would be FAR BETTER OFF making me a friend and profiting from what gets said here BUT… that is their affair, as they will see… at some point, up around the bend (cue John Fogarty).
Like Krishna said; “Whenever dharma declines and the purpose of life is forgotten, I manifest myself on Earth. I am born in every age to protect the good, to destroy evil, and to reestablish dharma. As they approach me, so I receive them. All paths, Arjuna, lead to me.” Now… I am not Krishna but I work for him. He is the same incomprehensible supremacy that is resident in Jesus Christ, Buddha, Lao Tzu and others, ALL SENT HERE TO BE OUR GUIDES. Some are avatars, some prophets, some sages, some illumined entities but THEY ARE ALL PRESENTATIONS OF THE ONE, OR DIRECT, OR INDIRECT, PORTALS TO THE ONE.
I received a comment at Petri Dish this morning and it resonated deeply with me. Perhaps I was in the mood, maybe I changed overnight (grin) well… of course I did. It is a whole new world today, as it will be tomorrow. Yes… for many it will be the same OLD WORLD, interminably but… not for me. I am reborn in the light of the ineffable each day and SO CAN IT BE FOR anyone.
Ignore the statements made about me in the comment. They are kind but not comprehensive. I’m just some guy trying to do his job. I’ll probably make an error in judgment or a mistake today; just to put it all into perspective. I considered removing the referential portions but that seemed like overkill. Anyway, here it is, followed by my answer;
“Thanks again for your insights. They really connect with me at times. I struggle to get to somewhere like the state you have achieved. The thing that always causes me such dissatisfaction is the apparent injustices that don’t seem to be ever punished. I accept that through incarnation that it will all even out eventually, but it is very difficult to watch the evil creatures prosper while great individuals and peoples are destroyed. You frequently state that it is for the purpose of demonstration but few seem to pay attention or learn from those demonstrating events. Yesterday, was the 75th anniversary of the bombing of Dresden. All those good people were roasted and nothing ever came of it. The perpetrators prospered. Of course, our lives are only blips in the scheme of things and time will tell, as you say. The goal should be what you can do in your own small way. I know this intellectually but I struggle to feel it. I struggle to have an experience of ‘God’ as you describe is central to your life. I feel strongly that my life has been a waste. I feel that it has been spent completely on the periphery as an observer with little effect. Even the thought that I will be sent back to try again doesn’t comfort much. Again, thank you for what you do. I am glad that I discovered you some years back and get comfort from what you write.”
“You pretty much covered the ground in what you said. As for payback; except in an apocalypse, and we’re just getting to certain parts of that now, the scenery has to be arranged with a certain precision and that isn’t always possible at times. People are often made to suffer internally without it being palpably evident to others. Sometimes one is born into animal form because their crimes were manifestations of that kingdom of being. Justice is ALWAYS served.
IN AN INSTANT EVERYTHING CAN CHANGE; “success is speedy for the energetic.” When you think you are making no progress and all seems dark and stagnant within… great strides are often being made but you are unaware of it.
Try to remember that the evil you see being done, or heard or read about happening, without retribution. IS RETRIBUTION for previous wrongs on the part of those you are witnessing being abused. Dresden, for instance, was a gathering of many from many times and climes. Often when something is happening to more than one person… war times… plane crashes… earthquakes, the injured and dead might have been gathered from across a vast spectrum of time. They were not all present for the same offense. God paints in both broad strokes and great detail.
STOP TRYING TO GET YOUR HEAD AROUND WHAT YOU SEE IN THE REALM OF APPEARANCES. Appearances LIE. They are a lie… most especially because the information is ALWAYS incomplete. Fix your thought upon the indwelling and maintain it there. Pray for help; KNOWING HELP WILL COME. Be relentless in your optimism. Convince and commit yourself of and to the certitude that all will be well and better and better as it goes. DO NOT ENTERTAIN DOUBT. Stop chasing your tail!
Immerse yourself in the love of the supreme by standing before the sun and ACKNOWLEDGING! See the fluid beauty, transparency and purity in water. Touch the fecundity of the Earth. Feel the power of its possibilities. Breathe in the spirit of God in the air that enters your lungs. Let it charge you with enthusiasm! Embrace the consuming beauty of fire that purifies everything and celebrate the fire that burns within. Don’t give way to negativity. Powerful conning towers are broadcasting, this moment, a radiant darkness from the Lower Astral Plane. Reject it! Visualize angels hovering above and flying about and… THEY ARE AWARE OF YOU. Nature is a mirror, What are you thinking when you look into this mirror?
The Sun is the face of God on the material plane and evidence of the spiritual sun, which is literally God. The Sun is your friend. Speak to him. Angels circle the sun endlessly, carrying thoughts and statements pleas and prayers to him AND… HE IS RESIDENT IN YOU!”
When you see injustices being done THAT IS JUSTICE BEING DONE for previous injustices. You may not like that this is so. You may dispute the symmetry of the cosmos BUT THAT CHANGES NOTHING. Everywhere justice is being done all the time; “I recognize the manifestation of the undeviating justice in every circumstance of my life” (Geburah; from the Pattern on the Trestleboard).
The flowing rays of The Sun are GOLD. They are actual gold. They penetrate the Earth and transform into the literal gold. Let these rays enter and transform you! That is… “The Operation of the Sun.”
There is no Injustice
There is often the extreme nearsightedness
of selfish intent
for as long as i stand here
and you stand there
the appearance of difference
is the God divided
and worshiped from a bloody altar
that man has built to his own dark needs
toward a unity
time and time again
until pain has brought forth the blossom
of loves symmetry
there is no injustice anywhere
there are no innocent bystanders
there are no accidents
and being sorry doesn’t help
its not your fault
it may not even be wrong
whose view is vast enough
that passing time does not soon compromise
their line of sight?
who sees well enough
to leave well enough
beautiful bubbles break inside the oceans foam
the water leaks into the sand
then swims away unseen
the wind stirs the leaves
the grass grows
the bees make honey
the fish laugh beneath the surface
and the horses gallop forever beneath and within the waves
that will never free them
it is only longing
and there is no injustice anywhere
clouds float by like dreams in a peaceful sleep
and the sky is blue
and the sun is brimming with life
and the moon is pregnant with form
the coyote howls
and the eagle screams
and longing and hunger will never end
Desire is the agent of Gods will!
and there is no injustice anywhere
the light changes
and gridlock comes
and the car horns honk in Hell’s unfinished symphony
where the smoke from hidden fires
rises from the manholes and grates
as Jesus blows on his hands in a broken stairwell
with Bethlehem two thousand years away
its going to be a long night
but there is no injustice anywhere
the heat blisters the streets in these cities of wanting
the mad fire dance
the insane dervish in a suit
it fries the palate
all sense of taste is gone
it burns the bowels
and turns the earth an alkaline white
devoid of life
here in the pushing crowd
where loneliness is king
where no one makes love
but are only ashamed
and cannot speak
eyes do not meet
the money changes hands
but never the heart
nor the mind
is what takes place
if you want something else
then go somewhere else
love will only be a problem for you here
It is incredible
and it is insane
it will not get better
it is supposed to be this way
a million years ahead
or a million years behind
t’was ever thus
the city is the same
the drama does not change
the cataclysm comes
and the fiery rain
vaporizes the stage
so that it might all begin again
and there is no injustice anywhere.

Pocketnet went a courtin and it did go uh huh… Pocketnet went a courtin and it did go uh huh… Pocketnet went a courtin and it did go… to the land of snakes for the magic show… uh huh
