Visible Origami – April 2, 2021
Dog Poet Transmitting…….
God comes for you in the end, at death, if you have served God through life. God comes before that too, checking- on each occasion- to see if there is any interest in you for spiritual things. Cave, Cave… Deus videt. He does not come personally, although he is personally resident within. It is his angels that make the visits. If you spend more time thinking and talking about God than the people who never think or talk about God believe to be necessary, then… you get categorized as not all there and thank God for that.
Perhaps you have heard that powerful line, “be careful of the way you treat people on your way up because they are the ones you will see on your way down”? Not many of them do pay attention to this. I study these people as they appear in my windshield, sometimes in person… rarely (these days) and also in the various internet media. I haven’t watched any of the networks in decades. I study these people and all people as they come to my attention and I see karmic train-wrecks in slow motion. You can’t scream, “The bridge is out!” at them, they will give you the finger.
So… that is pretty much how they handle life. Their lives are like escalators, connected in absurd and abstract fashion. Looking at it, you think to yourself, ‘this makes no sense’ and it doesn’t. It smacks of lunacy and perpetual suicide. HOWEVER… ‘they’ vastly outnumber you, and they are not gentle and understanding. You have to learn to negotiate them as if they were pasture bulls and you have to cross the pasture.
They said I was incurably, chronically schizophrenic. This came about due to my quoting Lao Tzu and seeing EVERYTHING in spiritual terms. Ingenue that I was, it did not occur to me that these were the very worst people to discuss spiritual matters with. I was as jejune as it gets. After the kundalini event, I must have looked almost cartoon-like. THEY certainly did to me, once I got the hang of it; kind of got the hang of it.
Schizophrenia is like cholesterol. There is good schizophrenia and bad schizophrenia. I took some brief tests this morning. I took all the ones that might apply to me and I never got out of the minimal tendencies bracket. The reason I came across this site was because I was looking for the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory online. It’s the gold standard for mental testing and apropos of I don’t know why I went looking for it, I thought I would see how I rated on it.
When I was confined for reasons of being impossible to categorize, after a few months… imagine my surprise when looking deeper into these doctors and nurses, I saw that they were themselves crazy. Most of them were so in the neurotic sense. I might have met a psychotic or two in the time I went through their mills, don’t remember right now. Most people operating in any professional field are looking for answers about themselves in what they do. They may not know. Usually, they don’t.
If you factor in intangibles, then people like us can well pose as threats. One disarms this with a lack of interest, and then there is no competition for end results. You don’t want anything they have or want, and you do not oppose their way. Therefore you DO NOT appear as a threat. Much of this is PROGRAMMED stuff. You are treating with people who are programmed to react. Don’t push their buttons.
Yeah, I should talk. I left a lot of casualties back the way I came. I’ve also read the Bhagavad Gita, so I know how things really stand. You can’t rely on appearances to resurrect or absolve you of whatever you are getting up to. You can’t WORK appearances on your own behalf BECAUSE… they will turn on you in the natural bio-rhythm of existence; in the ebb and flow
Throughout your life, many things happen. You are around and interacting with others every day (most people). People see you from every side as time goes by because that is HOW LIFE WORKS. Life is devoted to arranging situations in which you are exposed to the eyes of others and they come to see what you are made of. Then you get in trouble. The trouble itself is arranged to put you in a situation where the people who know you have to make up their minds about you. If you are a good person, and I have seen this first hand, people come out of the woodwork to speak on your behalf.
After this last election, after the way the Supreme Court behaved, and after all the street chaos and Big Tech shenanigans, it is now truly apparent that there is a ruling cabal of Satanized souls with the seeming power to shape the world in their own image. This is all temporary and passing folly, but it looks real and it feels real. People buy into it. Those seducing the common mind know just what treats and trinkets appeal to the mentally challenged. It’s not unlike the original purchase of Manhattan Island, only the currency is souls.
Most people, if they could see what is truly happening around them, would go freakishly mad. They CANNOT look at it. This is the origin of denial. We are REALLY on the edge of collective freak-out, spurred by the apocalypse and attendant force of awakening. What can you do when what you most desperately do not want to see is brought before your eyes against your will? For so many people with fatal attractions, this SEEING can be extraordinarily painful. For others who are not attached to these objects of bondage, it is a delightful setting free.
You are on your way out of here. This is an absolute that needs to be pondered and explored PRIOR TO departure. It would seem that this is one of the most critical issues anyone could confront, but they don’t want to. It shakes up all their values and perceptions in a scary fashion. What do you hold on to when you have seen the absolute impermanence of things? You hold on to what is holding on to you and you discover what that is when you let go of everything else. This is a pain prison for those who have willingly made themselves inmates.
I talk too much. I think I will close with Chapter 6 from the Bhagavad Gita. This is not the section that deals with the reference made earlier. It is the one I saw yesterday and wished to include BEFORE I had written this (grin).
The Practice of Meditation
It is not those who lack energy or refrain from
action, but those who work without expectation
of reward who attain the goal of meditation.
Theirs is true renunciation. Therefore, Arjuna,
you should understand that renunciation and
the performance of selfless service are the same.
Those who cannot renounce attachment to the
results of their work are far from the path.
For aspirants who want to climb the mountain
of spiritual awareness, the path is selfless work;
for those who have ascended to yoga the path
is stillness and peace. When you have freed
yourself from attachment to the results of work,
and from desires for the enjoyment of sense
objects, you will ascend to the unitive state.
Reshape yourself through the power of your
will; never let yourself be degraded by self-will.
The will is the only friend of the Self,
and the will is the only enemy of the Self.
To those who have conquered themselves,
the will is a friend. But it is the enemy of those
who have not found the Self within them.
The supreme Reality stands revealed in the
consciousness of those who have conquered
themselves. They live in peace, alike in cold and
heat, pleasure and pain, praise and blame.
They are completely fulfilled by spiritual wisdom and
Self-realization. Having conquered their senses, they
have climbed to the summit of human consciousness.
To such people a clod of dirt, a stone, and gold are
They are equally disposed to family,
enemies, and friends, to those who support them and
those who are hostile, to the good and the evil alike.
Because they are impartial, they rise to great heights.
Those who aspire to the state of yoga should seek
the Self in inner solitude through meditation. With
body and mind controlled they should constantly
practice one-pointedness, free from expectations
and attachment to material possessions.
Select a clean spot, neither too high nor too low,
and seat yourself firmly on a cloth, a deerskin, and
Kusha grass. Then, once seated, strive to still your
thoughts. Make your mind one-pointed in meditation,
and your heart will be purified. Hold your body,
head, and neck firmly in a straight line, and keep
your eyes from wandering. With all fears dissolved
in the peace of the Self and all actions dedicated to
Brahman, controlling the mind and fixing it on me, sit
in meditation with me as your only goal.
With senses and mind constantly controlled through meditation,
united with the Self within, an aspirant attains
nirvana, the state of abiding joy and peace in me.
Arjuna, those who eat too much or eat too little,
who sleep too much or sleep too little, will not
succeed in meditation. But those who are temperate
in eating and sleeping, work and recreation, will
come to the end of sorrow through meditation.
Through constant effort, they learn to withdraw
the mind from selfish cravings and absorb it in
the Self. Thus they attain the state of union.
When meditation is mastered, the mind is
unwavering like the flame of a lamp in a windless
place. In the still mind, in the depths of meditation,
the Self reveals itself. Beholding the Self by means
of the Self, an aspirant knows the joy and peace
of complete fulfillment. Having attained that
abiding joy beyond the senses, revealed in the
stilled mind, they never swerve from the eternal
truth. They desire nothing else and cannot be
shaken by the heaviest burden of sorrow.
The practice of meditation frees one from
all affliction. This is the path of yoga. Follow it
with determination and sustained enthusiasm.
Renouncing wholeheartedly all selfish desires and
expectations, use your will to control the senses.
Little by little, through patience and repeated
effort, the mind will become stilled in the Self.
Wherever the mind wanders, restless and diffuse
in its search for satisfaction without, lead it within;
train it to rest in the Self Abiding joy that comes to
those who still the mind. Freeing themselves from
the taint of self-will, with their consciousness
unified, they become one with Brahman.
The infinite joy of touching Brahman is easily
attained by those who are free from the burden
of evil and established within themselves. They
see the Self in every creature and all creation in
the Self. With consciousness unified through
meditation, they see everything with an equal eye.
I am ever-present to those who have realized me in
every creature. Seeing all life as my manifestation,
they are never separated from me. They worship
me in the hearts of all and all their actions proceed
from me. Wherever they may live, they abide in me.
When a person responds to the joys and
sorrows of others as if they were his own, he has
attained the highest state of spiritual union.
A r j u n a
O Krishna, the stillness of divine union which
you describe is beyond my comprehension.
How can the mind, which is so restless,
attain lasting peace? Krishna, the mind is
restless, turbulent, powerful, violent; trying to
control it is like trying to tame the wind.
It is true that the mind is restless and difficult to
control. But it can be conquered, Arjuna, through
regular practice and detachment.
Those who lack self-control will find it difficult to progress in
meditation; but those who are self-controlled, striving
earnestly through the right means, will attain the goal.
Krishna, what happens to one who has faith
but who lacks self-control and wanders from
the path, not attaining success in yoga? If he
becomes deluded on the spiritual path, will he
lose the support of both worlds, like a cloud
scattered in the sky? Krishna, you can dispel all
doubts; remove this doubt which binds me.
Arjuna, my son, such a person will not be destroyed.
No one who does good work will ever come to a
bad end, either here or in the world to come.
When such people die, they go to other realms
where the righteous live. They dwell there for
countless years and then are reborn into a home
which is pure and prosperous. Or they may be born
into a family where meditation is practiced; to be
born into such a family is extremely rare.
The wisdom they have acquired in previous lives will be
reawakened, Arjuna, and they will strive even harder
Indeed, they will be driven
on by the strength of their past disciplines. Even
one who inquires after the practice of meditation
rises above those who simply perform rituals.
Through constant effort over many lifetimes,
a person becomes purified of all selfish desires
and attains the supreme goal of life.
Meditation is superior to severe asceticism and the
path of knowledge. It is also superior to selfless service.
May you attain the goal of meditation, Arjuna! Even
among those who meditate, that man or woman who
worships me with perfect faith, completely absorbed
in me, is the most firmly established in yoga
It took more time to edit the text from The Gita here than it did to write this post… heh heh…
