Smoking Mirrors – April 9, 2020
Dog Poet Transmitting…….
As complex as life can appear to be, it is a very simple affair and is rendered complex or simple, based on a single dynamic and that is… (trumpet fanfare, accompanied by a rising chorus of Tympani and Taiko drums) WHETHER YOU HAVE DECIDED TO LIE TO YOURSELF OR NOT.
There could be several reasons why you have decided to lie to yourself. One of the reasons is that there is something, or a number of somethings that you want and you are not convinced that you are permitted to have them/it, or you are not likely to get them/it, unless you strategize to that end. Hence… you get ‘justifications’ and/or ‘rationalizations’, accompanied by internal and external arguments, employing the acts of justifying or rationalizing.
Our main problem, which attends justifying and rationalizing, the adversary who stands in our way is (more horns, Tympani’s and Taiko’s) our Conscience. Mark Twain had a lot to say on the matter of our conscience. I remember a short story by him; at least I think I do, in which he murdered his conscience but I can’t locate where it was that I saw it; if it was a short story, or an essay… can’t remember.
You EITHER do what you know to be right, or you try to find a way around it, maybe just this once because… the end justifies the means. We’ve all done this and if your response is, “Well, I’ve never done that!” You are lying to yourself and… by extension, everyone else as well. The majority of us live in a land of half-truths, or far worse. How I know that everyone has done this and committed many another act as well, is because life is set up this way, in order for you to learn from the consequences of your behavior. There are none that escape this. The Bible tells us this. We all come short of the mark.
So… what we get is a sector of the self-righteous, who can do no wrong and have convinced themselves of this. They have to, it comes with the persona. Then there is a sector of those who know they are short of the mark and seek redemption and the opportunity be on the mark, henceforth. Then there is the larger sector of those who have no idea of who they are but they have cobbled together some version they hope will convince the world as they pass through it. That’s most people. Some of them skate because they’re a little better at it than whomever they are skating by or over. Some get by a bit more haphazardly. Sometimes they get the bear and sometimes the bear gets them and the rest? They wind up as fish-food.
You don’t usually hear about the people who get mulched into fish-food. It’s not an interest grabber; the people who fall into the cracks. You do see them sometimes if you are the sort of person who bothers to look. Most people don’t bother because seeing this troubles them in the place where their humanity used to live. It scares them too. They don’t like the implications it brings to their minds. Where do those implications come from? Yes… it’s the conscience, which does not only remind us of what we should and shouldn’t be doing. It also alerts us to where we are headed, according to the laws of Karma, if we don’t wake up. We ARE our brother’s keeper. There are crimes of commission and crimes of omission and it’s all observed and noted.
I am SURE that the majority of us do not know that we are on TV all of the time, in front of a large audience, depending. In some cases the audience is carrion feeders and appetite satisfaction agencies who take their nourishment and pleasure from us. It is one of the reasons that ‘certain activities’ make us so tired. Our audience is also comprised of the dead and various entities in nature, as well as beings from other planets. The appearance of Justice and the quality of the common values present in humanity ARE NOT demonstrated to our advantage. It looks like there is no justice here. It looks like, despite the presence or absence of values that some people do whatever they like and it doesn’t matter.
Take Leonard De Caprio as an example. He’s an actor and was born to the profession. All the doors opened for him early on. He spends his time banging an endless line of hot chicks. Little does he know how hot they are. Then he also grandstands about social justice and nature causes, while being a big-time offender of the same, like most of his associates in that line of work. He paid for the opportunity to do what he does and the wheels are greased accordingly, so are the chicks, I imagine. He’s either paid through the nose ahead of time, or he has agreed to pay later. He was warned beforehand about coloring outside the lines. Everyone is.
This is the world though AND you can do ANYTHING… as long as you are willing to pay the fare. From our vantage point, outside of the perspective of reality, it looks like he’s doing okay. Many others would kill or do most anything else to get a shot at what he has BUT appearances are deceiving.
There are people like Ellen Degenerate who are despised behind the scenes and records of their bad behavior are there to be noted. No matter how efficient or powerful your public relations goblins are, word of your doings gets through the filters. She’s not unique in this way. People with a sense of entitlement are completely divorced from reality. They tread, on the unsuspecting head, with regularity. The little people just aren’t that important.
You ask yourself, “How can they get away with this shit?” Well… they don’t. A long time ago, those who were designing the Christian religion, in such a way as to maximize profit and control on their behalf, excised REINCARNATION from the operating model. If something is placed out of sight, that doesn’t mean it is gone. It’s just out of sight. People who don’t get the essential presence of Reincarnation in the scheme of things, will argue night and day about it. These days, the fundies only hear what they want to hear. I’ve no argument with them because I don’t argue. Either I KNOW something to be true or I DON’T KNOW. There’s no wiggle room with me. I KNOW Reincarnation is an integral feature of existence. Leaving it out removes all sense from the dynamic. Keeping it in makes sense of it all. Why did they do this? Asked and answered already.
Nobody gets away with anything and those who lie to themselves WILL live in a world of their own creation but… it’s like what happens when an architect doesn’t know what he’s doing. The stability of the building suffers and so do the residents. It makes no difference to me if people agree with me or not. Time will tell and WE SHALL SEE.
Before I forget, let me say, “Fuck Coronavirus and the whores it rode in on!” I apologize for the salty language. That is not how I usually communicate but I couldn’t find anything else that accurately summed up my position on the subject. The good news is that no matter what the malefactors and agents of darkness get up to, it will be to no avail. As per The Rules of the Apocalypse (not like the REGULAR RULES), whatever you do that is wrong, WILL work to your disadvantage NOW AND HENCE and WILL be revealed and exposed. That is the nature of an apocalypse and if you can’t see evidence of this right off, you aren’t looking very hard and IT’S EARLY DAYS. Try to see everything that happens as a set up for something else and ALL OF IT as being managed by The Supreme Being.
This virus seclusion syndrome is a transition period. The world will not be the same at the other end. In keeping with God being the motive force out of the background… you will have noticed that there has been small mention of domestic incidents and very little of people going crazy, which is something you would ordinarily expect under such circumstances. Some mysterious power seems to be keeping the lid on. There has been very little acting out by fringe elements, ♫ah… and it makes me wonder♫
We are either, working in sync with the cosmic will, or we are in some degree of opposition to it and finding out how that applies to any of us is easy to do. You can tell by the way you feel. Notice and knowledge of your state is coming up at all times from the subconscious. There is either some percentage of uneasiness, or there is a sense of well being. Life informs us, even when we don’t want it to.
Lying to ourselves cripples our understanding. We become spiritually disabled and regular passengers on The Short Bus of Existence. Going through life with self-created blinders is neither sane nor safe. Why do we do this? Asked and answered. God is either working through us or driving us from behind, depending on the cosmic personality we have chosen as our agent for the Purpose of Demonstration. The outcome is heavily dependent upon which persona we give fealty to. It could be so much better than it is and one day, despite all of our collective worst efforts, it will be.
Today’s Song is; ♫Love Goes Home Alone♫
I saw a man who wasn’t there, do something that just didn’t happen, in a world of subjectivity, where everything, ironically, was shaped to fit the pattern of a drunken sidewalk slattern, who dreamed she was a princess in a country far away. I saw it cited at Pocketnet just the other day.
