Visible Origami – Feb 25, 2020
Dog Poet Transmitting…….
It’s often been stated by ‘us’ here that we are an observer of Trends and Social Progressions; even when they are peddling in reverse. You can see what’s coming, IF… you watch where you’re going. Paying attention SHOULD BE Job #1. Paying or not paying attention, is the determinant of whether one continues living or becomes dead.
So it is that it came to my attention, in many ways, that it is the byproducts of the Corona Virus that are the real concerns, NOT the virus itself. It seems that most of our medications are produced in China and this makes sense since the pharmaceutical companies operate on such a tight margin (grin). One of the things to KEEP IN MIND is that ♫ the hip bones connected to the knee bone and the knee bones connected to the leg bone ♫ so… VERY OFTEN things happen and also do not happen, for reasons not immediately clear, because of tangential and ancillary connections to something else.
I think it is not a fearmongering prediction on our part that possibly… quite possibly… supermarket shelves might start to empty soon with no warning. Panic operates according to its own mysterious dynamic. I have not and do not intend to have sex with Steven Spielberg’s, damaged skell of an adopted daughter but it is more than likely that, in time, I will know someone who knows someone who did.
Panic begins in whispers and metastasizes into screams. It is as if there were a disembodied hand, like the one in the Adam’s Family, that is controlling the volume knob on the sound of appearances. All of a sudden, with no warning, things can get very loud. Before you know it, people are running wild eyed in all directions, driven by an inscrutable fear of no identifiable origin. That is the heart and soul of PANIC.
PANIC is soon going to be emptying the shelves at supermarkets. PANIC is going to be generating epidemic Haphephobia and Agoraphobia. PANIC is soon going to be generating MORE PANIC. PANIC is an interesting phenomena, it generates mindless fear that cancels out all sense of strategic thinking, along with rational inquiry and then degenerates to a self destructive flight into certain danger. Another interesting feature of PANIC is how it affects breathing. At no time… ever… is giving into PANIC a good idea. It is the worst possible response at any time to anything. Here is one of the results of PANIC. A study of the origin of the word should bear fruit as well.
I have been told that Coronavirus is genetically selective and only kills Asians. If you attempt to get evidence of this, there is none that I have been able to find so… is this true… or not? That, I think, would be a critical consideration. This will not protect you from the alternative possibility of being pancaked by a city bus, while texting a friend about it and inadvertently, stepping off the curb into it.
EVERYTHING in life comes down to KARMA… PERIOD. Every thought in your mind, every word you voice, every action to commit, is attended by Karma… UNLESS you act without thought of reward, or personal gain of any kind… then you activate the Law of Providence and you become the recipient of dharma. You can’t avoid Karma in any case so… why not incur Good Karma? One can correctly state that the result of actions of self interest WILL RESULT in Negative Karma at some point and that acting in a selfless and disinterested fashion will create the opposite effect.
Opponents of this view are welcome to disagree with it but these ideas did not originate with me. They originated with far wiser minds who said, “as ye sow so shall ye reap.” You can think of your existence and everything that happens in it, being an interaction between yourself and a wall of consequences that bounces back at you the ball’s reaction, to the direction and degree of intensity with which you threw the ball… or your thoughts, or words or deeds. Continuing existence is the outcome of the Boomerang Effect. You get what you give. What goes around comes around.
It can seem that what has just been stated here cannot possibly be true BECAUSE… look at all the vile individuals, who are doing horrible things to others, seemingly with impunity. You can’t judge the nature of a river from standing at a single point on the banks. The river is of far greater complexity than what can be determined between two bends. The bends themselves are a reaction of Karma (grin).
Conversely, one can see good people experiencing all sorts of unfortunate events that make no sense in the context of their personality. KARMA DOES NOT, except under peculiar aegis, occur instantaneously. Of course, if you leap from a cliff, you will very shortly make contact with the ground and there are myriad examples of similar results but USUALLY… Karma is more about engineering precise conditions for its occurrence further on. Often we may not see the results in the same life that the causes of it originated in. Here is an explanation for the good person to whom bad things are happening. HOWEVER… MAKE NO MISTAKE… Karma WILL BE SERVED. Karma will be inflexibly served, UNLESS… Grace intrudes. The Ineffable has more Grace on tap than could ever be measured, OR DISPENSED. Realized masters, saints and others, also have degrees of Grace that they are free to dispense as they see fit. There have been many cases of realized beings assuming the Karma of one or more or many of their followers also.
♫ What a friend we have in Jesus
All our sins and griefs to bear
And what a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer
Oh, what peace we often forfeit
Oh, what needless pain we bear
All because we do not carry
Everything to God in prayer
Have we trials and temptations?
Is there trouble anywhere?
We should never be discouraged
Take it to the Lord in prayer
Can we find a friend so faithful
Who will all our sorrows share?
Jesus knows our every weakness
Take it to the Lord in prayer ♫
In that song you find an example of just what I am talking about. Behind every great song, there is often a great story. Here is the story about that song. It was an Irishman also who wrote, “Amazing Grace” ah… Grace comes up again; what do you know?
In the life of the author of that song, just as in the life of the author of Amazing Grace, you can see Karma at work. It is one of the amazing features of Karma, where tragedy and trauma can occasionally lead to astonishing results. I know many, many tales like this; one of the benefits of being an inveterate reader with an insatiable curiosity. It is that curiosity (along with a great deal of Love) that led me to God. With God it is not possible to satisfy curiosity and therefore, if you are of a curious nature, may I recommend the creator as a subject for your consideration?
There are those who eschew all action and there are certain followers of Buddhism that take this to an absurd degree. They believe that the less they act the less they will suffer. Might I point out the line from Revelations, “if ye be lukewarm I shall spew thee out of my mouth.”? Also, there is the Parable of the talents, given to the servants of the man ‘going on a journey’. Yes… you have to think. Even if you are me and engage in ‘casting out thought’, you still wind up thinking and speaking and doing so… HAVE AT IT but… attach no personal value to any of it. This is the Spirit of Karma Yoga. Act unselfishly and your Karma will not result in suffering but in Joy and Liberation.
“God loves and cares for me and is giving me every good thing. I love him and think his thoughts and do only those things that he wishes me to do.” I think that would be a good guideline.
Remember that every detail of your life… NO MATTER HOW TRIFLING OR NEGLIGIBLE IT MAY APPEAR… is a particular and important transaction between God and your soul. There is nothing inconsequential. It ALL HAS AN IMPACT. Think of yourself as a kind of Johnny Appleseed and leave intentional evidence of your passing. What imprint would you like to leave on life? The ball is in your court. You have the power to decide upon the specific impact you will have on life and on everyone you meet.
Look… I’ve made plenty of mistakes but it was in getting dirty on the field of play that I was permitted to learn and to grow in understanding of consequences and intentions. Sure I wish I knew then what I know now BUT AT LEAST I DO KNOW NOW WHAT I KNOW NOW! I shall have ample time to make up for every error I committed, unless God seeks to intrude on that. He certainly has already in many, many fine and gracious ways, but regardless, I have ETERNITY in which to be an expression of God’s Lila and all will be well, sooner rather than later and the day WILL COME that I shall be totally free and of FAR GREATER IMPORTANCE, free to make others free as well. Oh Happy Day!!!
Today’s Song is;
(a song about one who took themselves too seriously and served as a karmic example for the rest of us-
THERE ARE MANY WHO HAVE DONE SO)
Peter Piper picked the Pocketnet and by prestidigitation drew a Hasbara scoundrel from a hat and turned him into a footstool for illiterate gentiles who speak in a language he will never understand. You can catch it all happening here.
