The Sirens of Appetite and the Doors of Perception

Reflections in a Petri Dish — Jan 22, 2014

Dog Poet Transmitting…….
May your noses always be cold and wet.
Greetings from a very tall white man. Greetings from the Sirius Cluster. You know, I’ve been talking about Mr. Apocalypse for a good while now and… I generally reference present and coming exposure, uncoverings, scandals and similar things as being the major elements of The Apocalypse, along with awareness and the lack thereof. There’s more to all of that and I should have said something earlier but I recognize things get said when they are supposed to get said and since what is going to be mentioned is now approaching, well… there you have it. Incoming (grin).
As usual, I’ll get around to it in my convoluted fashion and you’ll know I’ve finished at that point where you can close your eyes and see a glowing golden serpent with its tale (sp?) in its mouth, hopefully.
Then again, maybe I have said it already and just need to reiterate it and flesh it out in a form of tighter containment. Something seems to have gotten into my syntax this evening; not much I can do about it (grin).
An apocalypse exists within a particular structure of operation. In other words, there are rules that attend the ongoing progression of an apocalypse. According to the main religious text, this is what comes with and after an apocalypse. That looks like some pretty stern stuff. It seems like too much actually and I suspect that either what he really said got toyed with over the millennium, or he got some bad acid. Since we know he was on mushrooms at the time when he saw all of this, it’s altogether possible that the mushrooms were Amanita Muscaria and it’s known, at least to those of us who have taken them, that there is a degree of poison in that strain of mushroom, something called Arsenocholine, which would be an arsenic type (I think). Most of the others (all the ones I know about), do not have poison in them. Well, if you’ve taken psychedelics with similar toxins in them like Hawaiian wood rose seeds, morning glory seeds and other comestibles, you are aware that depending on the degree of toxin in the shroom, to that degree you will have aspects of a bad trip. The lovely Amanita can have more or less toxin based on the time it blooms and the place it blooms in. I don’t know what was growing on Patmos at the time and God knows I don’t want foaming at the mouth fundies chasing me down the street with rakes and scythes. It just so happens that that is a relevant consideration.
The degree to which psychedelics have influenced religious texts and inspired writers is much more profound than is generally known. In the Vedas, the ‘soma’ is mushrooms. All kinds of information is routinely suppressed by those controlling the ‘general’ perception and thereby, perspective of the public mind. As long as they can control this, they can manipulate humanity and herd it in whatever direction they choose at the time. This is a reality, operating, of course, within an illusion. In an apocalypse, this reality is slowly and then not so slowly being shattered.
This leads to another facet of an apocalypse. An apocalypse has various progressive time zones. It starts slow and like a ball rolling down hill it picks up speed and like a snowball going down hill it picks up weight. It keeps going and increasing in speed and weight until it has completed its task.
In the early days of an apocalypse the focus is on specific things. The revealing of the pederast priesthood in the Catholic Church was one of these things. The apocalypse doesn’t just reveal things. It also brings forth technologies and human capacities that provide for more rapid dissemination of information relevant to its intent. The degree to which an apocalypse is scripted and directed is far more impressive than the people who don’t even consider it think it to be (grin). The good and bad news is that whether you believe in it or not, it’s going on. So if you are looking for an increase in awareness and ever so much more, you came to the right place at the right time. If you were looking for anything but that; what can I say? Exposure is going to take a major uptick. And as monsters get identified and far worse- bad for business- all kinds of things happen. In the meantime, business goes on as usual.
As the apocalypse continues uncovering and revealing things, it doesn’t particularly change prevailing conditions or alter the social and cultural dynamic much, at first. It might push elements of it to absurdity (and it certainly will) and it will certainly arrange ironic circumstances, which are all geared toward alerting people, with the intention of waking them up. However, for a good while, the effect of the unseen controllers is allowed to continue apace, giving people the choice, whether to opt for a greater freedom of thought and feeling, or to further immerse themselves into the awesome suck of materialism before it starts to impact on them regardless. Unfortunately, the apocalypse is not one of the better periods to pull the covers over your head.
Prior to arrival here, everyone was informed, ‘more or less’ what awaited them here and also informed about what they were likely to go through and what they could do about it. That’s Karma for you. Anyone who is even slightly tuned in to the obvious; which manages to hide quite effectively in plain sight, should have been able to suss out that this is a very, very significant period in human history. Otherwise, why would such a large number of people be making their way here? Why would there be so many billions of people on the planet?
Now, I know there are plenty of people that don’t believe in this form of ‘nonsense’. These are the same people that can’t connect the advances of physics with its role in proving enduring spiritual truths, such as everything is thought born and made out of the same thing but existing at different vibrationary rates. If you, by coincidence or intention, are actually seeking the truth, well, you’re surrounded by examples, that is, unless you are in a somnambulistic and mesmerized state, which is the case for a great many people. The surrounding clatter and confusion goes a long way toward compromising and dulling the senses, not to mention closing off access to higher sensibilities. It should come as no surprise that manners are more and more less visible, though I am not referring to manners when I mention higher senses.
Hermetic and occult training can stimulate, does stimulate the higher senses, so does yoga and of course, psychedelics will do this in turbo speed but it’s got a time limit, except for those rare instances where they get opened and stay open.
If you are such a person who is actively seeking illumination and truly wants to ascend into a higher state of consciousness, you are in the right time and place. Of course, conditions may not be optimum but progress can be speedy indeed, should one be militant against distraction. In earlier times I have mentioned certain techniques that can have a marvelous and salutary effect on getting you into the proper frame for advancement. If you don’t perform basic disciplines, instead of achieving certain states, certain states achieve you. One is desirable and the other is not.
All of the complexity of distractions, the marvels of technology that captivate people in their social networking circles, all those myriad of allurements, not to mention the attractions of fortune and the pull of the temporary promise of fame, which is what reality TV is all about… oh I could make an enormous list that would go on for pages and pages but surely you are aware of the vast multiplicity of potential delights which are present here at this time and… if you have the bread and connections, whoa baby! Of course, everything is upside down here. What looks like wonderful and serendipitous circumstances is anything but in the long term. Being surrounded by protective details grants an impression of security. It is anything but.
I’m guessing most people think they are a good judge of appearances and probably think they hold no sway over them. This is something that every individual should pay closer attention to. How much am I influenced by appearances? Appearances are a blind that leave you blind. They are very powerful and insidious as well. They form emotional patterns and reflex perspectives. As much as we believe we are immune to them, very often we are not. A good example is what happens when you take psychedelics. All of a sudden you can see, with impressive clarity, a whole lot of things you weren’t seeing before. Your sense of time is greatly, or can be, greatly altered. Your awareness of the unseen can become highly magnified and higher sensory organs can go into active operation. Some of us can see interdimensionally and etherically. I’ve had that happen too many times to recall. Auras can often be easily seen and it’s possible to hear at a level generally denied us. Many, many other wonders and possibilities can occur as well. I noticed at one point that not everyone was having similar experiences. In fact there was a whole section of the public, whose main thing was to groove on the colors and who sought out a variety of physical experiences because of the enhancement factor. I found it very peculiar at the time and I also didn’t much associate with these people. After years following and now in present time, I understand why that was, a lot better now than I did then.
Some of us are just constructed in a more limited fashion, due to the aggregate of our lifetimes, based on what we spent our energies on. So it is that a good number of us came here for no more than the physical experiences and that’s about what they get. It is imperative upon the seeker to recognize that there is a large body of the public that is deaf to the alternate realms. Strangely enough, the apocalypse is what it is for the purpose of shaking people out of their deep slumbers. The universe has that, ‘you never know’ attitude and the collective compassion of many great souls, all come to bear upon the hour, in the hope of positive result. The whole dynamic is so intricately complex that no one really understands it fully and that’s just fine because a certain amount of mystery makes it all so much more intriguing and holds out the promise of there always being more to learn. It doesn’t end and neither does suffering, in the other direction. So it is that it can take a very, very, very long time for some individuals to come around. It doesn’t have to be that way but in many cases it is. Some people return only to go to prison over and over again, or to fight in one war after another for centuries, or are born with conditions and a person observing all of this, within their own so limited perspective would find it to be totally unfair and senseless. So it might seem but… it’s all a tapestry of unimaginable beauty, a perfectly woven and unspeakable poem. For those who have had no more than a brief glimpse, it changes them forever. It’s something to shoot for, other than all the rest. So it appears to me but I pick my appearances.
It is so very hard to resist the pull of the houris of appetite and desire. Imagine yourself strapped to the mast of a sailing ship and sailing past the Islands of Sirenum scopuli and hearing the sirens singing. This is a selective thing, meaning not everyone is affected. It’s one of those odd things about life and odd things about people. Some thing have an irresistible effect on certain people and none at all on others. Big cities are Siren Islands. the internet is a Siren Island. The mind is a Siren Island. Since any Siren Island is surrounded by rocky reefs that cause ships to sink and the people on them to drown, we can assume that Sirens do not have our best interests at heart. Sirens are shapeshifters. They can take all sorts of different forms, ‘appearing’ to be something other than what they are but… without real objective awareness it’s hard to tell. Think about any of the really attractive people you met at some point that turned out not to be attractive at all; things you wanted so very, very badly that brought nothing but heartache, conflicts that occurred with others over things neither of you care about anymore but that doesn’t change what happened as a result. You can hear Sirens and not be affected by them. I remember freebasing for a few days once and not particularly liking or disliking it but… several of the other people there were transfixed by the pipe. I would see them get up to do something, walk several steps and, as if an invisible wire were tied around their necks they would be snapped back to the pipe. I thought it was funny at the time. Now, lest I give a false impression, I am not immune across the board to everything, or, rather, I wasn’t at one time or another. This is just an example of a situation I was in and how we were differently affected by it.
So… even though we can’t understand why people get sucked into different things, it happens and it happens because certain things have a very powerful effect on them that it does not have on some of the rest of us. I try to remind myself of this so that I don’t judge others too harshly but since their actions lead to terrible consequences, something is judging them, something provided those consequences; set the system up the way it is set up. Actions have consequences but… then again, there seem to be no consequences for some. Of course, that’s just more appearances. It’s a difficult thing to understand; about making judgments. I was told we are what we are for the purpose we serve and that adds to the complexity of the appropriateness of blanketing rules of moral conduct applied across the board to everyone. It’s all about dispensation or the lack of it. The same rules of conduct don’t apply to everyone. In the end, none of us knows. We’re walking on faith. We’re walking blind. We’re enamored by Sirens or we aren’t. I’m of the glass darkly school. We’ll see.
So here we are at a particular pivoting of the apocalypse and the scene is about to shift into hyper drive, just another logical progression of the whole affair. You can expect to hear a lot more about aliens now, as well as all kinds of strange and curious things not brought forth previously. It’s either a very good or a very bad time to be alive. Both of these courses are a matter of personal choice.
