A Written Christmas Card of Gratitude and Thanks

Smoking Mirrors — Dec 25, 2013

Dog Poet Transmitting…….
May your noses always be cold and wet.
Merry Christmas!!! There’s nothing like the resonance from the mind of another that reaffirms all the things you believe in and attempt to practice  Thank you Vigilant Citizen for your continuous vigilance. Thank you Michael Rivero for your keen sense of irony and outrage in all the right places but not for the aquarium popup (grin). Thank you Jeff Rense for the fourteen hour days and the shoulder to the wheel. Thank you Rixon Stewart for your firm and steady assurance in metaphysical truth. Thank you Kenny for your sideshow and your flawless integrity. Thank you to the men from Hang the Bankers and Lone Star Watch Dog for the courage to tell it like it is without the usual marine varnish of chicken shit compromises in search of an eventual mundane profit. Thank you Robert Phoenix for the persistence of inquiry where hearts less stout would fail. Thank you to the heroes from Wake from your Slumber for being consistent and unflagging warriors. Thank you Nina for your archetypal presentation of what a friend should be. Especial thanks to that anonymous angel known only as Sim for his fantastic help over recent years and who has done more toward making these site what they are than anyone. Though we are in a hiatus, I doubt the cosmos permits that to prevail. Many thanks Sim, you’ve been a rock.
My deepest thanks goes out to the readers who have made these sites far, far more than they would have been simply due to my efforts. Great gratitude is due to the vast majority of you for your steadfast support of and defense of me during my haywire periods and your patience in hanging around until the smooth and surfable waves arrived in the perfect sets of seven. Life is a journey and a movie too and no movie is going to keep your attention for very long if it is not entertaining. How can it be entertaining without plot twists, suspense and character driven action? You don’t need ridiculous car explosions and a streaming hail of bullets that hit nothing. You just need the entertainment factor wrapped up in a professional delivery vehicle and that means a competent director. The director is and has been on set.
Thank you for the personal generosity shown by so many of you with your donations and accompanying words of support. You weren’t supporting only me. You were investing in your own future due to the bread on the waters dynamic and that works. It really works.
Today, I’m going to make my signature lasagna with Caesar Salad and garlic bread, seated around a small collection of those I love but who have no faith in this season, as is the case with so many people. I will say my blessing as I always do and I will include all of you in my certitude of words, for that shining future to which all of us are bound. I can’t fix the things that are broken in others with a wave of my hand. These things take time. I can do my small part in working toward that end but people need to want to be fixed and first they need to know that they are broken. They need to know this and then the Christmas Spirit will descend on them and they will see that the forces of darkness are responsible for their narrow view upon that which is designed to expand their heart in a celebration of the forces of light that are resident within them. They will be able to take their minds off of the negative imagery designed by those who hate Christmas and loathe the idea of what it stands for because it is in all things contrary to their aims and expectations in this sphere. If they have managed to kill the Christmas Spirit in you then they have won. Surely that cannot be what you want?
Since we have far wider reach with this blog let me offer again this gift for a wider understanding of something often not very well understood.
So… Today, let’s stay away from all the bad shit and false appearances that have been constructed for the sole purpose of bringing you down and leaving you confused, indifferent and alone. You are not alone. None of us are, ever.
Yeshua means Liberty, or you can term it ‘God’s salvation’ but it amounts to Liberty and from some texts translates as such. It comes from Joshua which comes from Jehovah, which comes from Yod Heh Vau Heh as it always does. Now the hairsplitting anal retentives, will no doubt chime in just to show us the depth of their scholarship, not to mention how knowledgeable and informed they are. See, a lot of people are less interested in the truth of anything but rather to what degree they can use it for the purpose of self promotion. Real wisdom is humble as all get out because real wisdom knows what its puny possession amounts to when compared against the macroprosopus. Real wisdom has an accurate awareness of its place in the scheme of things; somewhere between a gnat and a dust particle.
Anyway. I want to give you an example here of how to better understand The Bible and how it contradicts conventional wisdom. There’s a phrase in the Bible which says, “At the name of Jesus every knee will bow”. What it is actually saying is, in the name of their own liberty everyone will submit or give fealty. I can grab a dozen and more of these and show a convincing turn well outside of the usual translations. Of course, you don’t have to believe me. Only I have to believe me. I have only to convince myself. Believe what you like.
You don’t have to be a Christian to enjoy Christmas Spirit. I am awash in it at the moment and I’m not a Christian. However, I do know how to tap into the collective joy being felt and shared by people all over the Earth, who may or may not know the esoteric truth about the birth of the light being the birth of the promise of their own freedom. I’m a humming bird. I know how to suck the joy from the pistils. One could see that as pornographic; sucking at the female seed bearing portion of a plant, or one could see it in the lyrical and poetic sense as I do. Since all personal joy is fully resonant with collective joy, I crank the amp. There’s nothing religious here, nothing dogmatic or formalized. It’s just a spontaneous expression of what I do not allow to remain latent. Feel it! Join the party. Be damned grateful instead of damned and celebrate the genesis of freedom within; free from all the constraints of the temporal.
Rock your joy! Put on some good music. Listen to some gospel. Go watch “It’s a Wonderful Life”, or “A Christmas Carol” Remind yourself of what life was like in London when Dickens wrote that. Dickens knew all about the child labor situation and all manner of injustice similar to what the same bent aristocracy are seeking to employ today, are in fact employing it in various places in the world right now.
If they take your Christmas Spirit. If they convince you to sneer and scoff at its potential, they’ve made you into their bitch. Don’t let them steal your potential for joy.
For many of the readers whose names I did not mention, please forgive me. There are too many of you for me to risk the attempt and then wind up leaving some of you out. Suffice to say I remember and appreciate you, a lot, a whole lot. “God bless us everyone!!!” and why not? God Bless Mr. Scrooge too.
Have a wonderful day!!!
Much Love,
