Reflections in a Petri Dish – Feb 19, 2021

Dog Poet Transmitting…….

Everywhere you look there is a scandal running or one in the making. All over, the rot is coming to the surface, as Mr. Apocalypse churns the deep waters of time, space, and causation, with his walking stick and; The Avatar? ♫He’ll be coming out of The Sun when he comes. He’ll be driving Krishna’s chariot when he comes. He’ll be healing the sick and cutting to the quick. He’ll be in the human heart when he comes♫

There is an unsettling tension rising. Lady Nature is coming down hard in certain places. Could hundreds of people really be dying of carbon monoxide poisoning from sitting in their cars in the garage for heat in Texas? Another storm is on the way. What is causing this perfect storm of uncertainty? The collective consciousness of humanity is the glue that holds the manifest in order or causes the reverse. Anger and Fear have gathered up a gang of fellow travelers and they’re shooting up towns and robbing trains. Humpty Dumpty is in The White House. Lady Macbeth is in the wings.

Some hidden hand is shuffling the personnel in high and mid-range locations. Like termites, they are being set loose to eat away the support beams of the infrastructure. They don’t know what they are doing. Almost no one knows what they are doing, except for those with a visceral sense of not knowing, because they are informed in every moment of what they need to know. I don’t know about anyone else but the first thing I look for, every time, if I happen to be in darkness, is a light.

I don’t want to move without a light. I may be certain of where I am going but I am not certain of how I will get there. That is why I rely on a guide who has been up and back more than once.

I am walking through a world of somnambulists. It used to be I was all about waking them up. That served to piss them off. I didn’t know any better. I was young and I had a lot of zeal; a lot of passion. It was the usual deal with the usual result. Then I learned to move in and around them without bumping into them. The first thing you have to do in order to awaken others is to be awake yourself. You ever have one of those dreams when you realize you are dreaming and you are desperately trying to wake up? It can take a while and be frightening too. Then when you wake up you think you are awake, BUT… you are still not awake. This is often the case with those in the white suits with all the seminars.

If you are going to be among the blind leading the blind, you need to know that the karma is worse for those doing the leading than for those being led. It’s even worse for those who are directing the ones who are leading the others. It runs, as it always does, to the heart of the darkness itself. They got a whole hierarchy there, just like the heavens above; as above, so below.

It’s a matter of personal choice, which kingdom you are getting your marching orders from. I don’t like being, ‘driven’. What are you being driven to anyway? You are being driven to the point of epiphany concerning The Purpose of Demonstration. In other words, you are being put through a seemingly endless ration of shit in order to discover this, and to what end? So that you won’t continue to be put through it. This should imply that you can stop at any time. You don’t have to whip yourself through uncertain terrain in pursuit of something you later find out you didn’t want in the first place. Then on to the next thing, and the next thing, and the next thing. Sounds like a whole lot of unnecessary suffering to me. Why not just cut the whole thing loose?

We are struggling to awaken in a rushing stream, and the dream currents are very strong. The idea is to make it to the banks. It can be done because it has been done. We have all kinds of evidence of unique souls reaching a state of being outside the clamor of the pushing and shoving of this unpredictable world which is all too predictable. We have to fool ourselves in order to keep believing it. We huddle with kindred spirits with whom we have conspired to agree upon a particular version of The Unreal. Here is where you find your fair-weather friends and whatever soap opera drama they are bringing to the mix.

What to do. What to do. We all answer this in our own way based on our understanding of how it works. Some are very good at how it works. This means they are in a position to get even more completely sucked into the machinery. You are either going deeper in, where it is denser and hotter, or you are going in the other direction, where it is less dense and cooler.

We live in a movable orgy of sexual magnetics, even as the vehicle of our transport grows weaker and further in submission to the desire for more, as the capacity reduces itself to impotence. It is what I would call, ‘a vicious cycle’. The greater your desire, the more you hammer life, and the more life hammers you. There is an interior flame that has to be reduced to a single tongue of radiance. Then you are driving and not being driven. Then the other lights are turned on and you can finally see. How’s that Biblical quote go? “For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.” then there was that part about once thinking and speaking like a child, then putting away childish things.

The Bible is filled with simple yet profound truths. “I die daily.” “Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;” Oh… there are many, many more. We read them but they only penetrate to a point. Within these parts of scripture is the REVELATORY ASPECT, where one gains spiritual insight into the living substance of it. Then there is the revelatory aspect of The Intuition. One builds a deeper connection through prayer and meditation. If you keep banging on the door, it will, eventually, be opened.

My dear friends, do not let the craziness of the times suck you into them. God is coming. He comes on schedule in every age. His presence is already being made evident in the changes going on in the world. Each series of changes leads to another series as wonder opens into wonder. There can be beautiful wonder and awesome wonder. There is wonder to delight you and wonder to make you tremble. I remember a friend asking Guru Bawa what could he do about being sexually attracted to beautiful women. Bawa said, “put your hand over your heart and say, “What a wonder!” There are many different poses that one can adopt concerning The Divine Feminine. I prefer to see her as The Mother. It is much less trouble and far more enduring and intimate.

It’s The Cross for being a poet, with one foot in both worlds. Byron handled it one way and Keats another. A true poet becomes a mystic and if he persists he becomes a sage. Beyond that are other states, but no matter how you approach it, even if it comes down to a pedestrian perspective, it will adapt to an understanding of some kind. Kalil Gibran wrote a book entitled, “Jesus, the Son of Man.” It has been a very long time since I read it but, as I remember it, there was a fellow who traveled around to talk to different people who had met Jesus Christ. I guess there was a banker and a baker and others and the key to the theme of it was that each of them saw Jesus through the lens of their own industry. It is, like most of Gibran’s work, unique in the way he struggles to present the truth as it has appeared to him. Obviously, he was inspired.

I lived with an archbishop on a mountaintop in Woodstock for a period of time. He had met Gibran. Gibran came to his church to visit him. Many famous people did. He said that Gibran was a lovely man but that he drank too much wine. Well, there’s wine and there’s wine. They drink a different vintage in the heavenly spheres.

One of my objectives, always lurking somewhere in the backdrop of my life, is spiritual intoxication. There is a location in the mind through which this wine can pour, once one has stabilized so as to access it. God possesses marvels and wonders that are beyond the reach of human imagination. Why! Why would anyone want to go anywhere else? That to me if the definition of Crazy. Yet that is all those other directions taken by the mass of us. Like they say, “there’s no accounting for taste.”

I know that everyone has an agenda of some kind, even when they are in service to others. It might be as simple as wanting to go to Heaven. I thank God and all his angels that it doesn’t occur to me that I want anything other than The Presence. Wanting is the problem to begin with.

It’s time to put aside childish things because something is about to happen under the main tent and in all the other tents that hasn’t happened in a LONG TIME. God cannot reside in a place that has not been prepared for him. He will NOT go where he is not invited. I can’t express the degree of sorrow I would feel upon discovering what I had missed simply because my attention was elsewhere. I do not intend to put my attention elsewhere. There is not even a second choice of any kind.


End Transmission…….

I’m not in the mood to include those links I usually include here. If one wants to travel to those links you can find them at the other posts. Pocketnet is not letting my posts through and I keep getting a runaround. It doesn’t matter if I post my work there anyway and it’s less work all round for me (grin).
