Reflections in a Petri Dish – June 30, 2020
Dog Poet Transmitting…….
There are times when the noise, aggression, and nasty behavior reach epic proportions. These would be such times. Today… I am going to ‘try’ to point out some details that may be of comfort to you. Take a moment and observe the behavior of those pantheons of sanctimony in the press, in the street, in the corridors of power and in the tinsel and glitter worlds of celebrity. Note… as each tries to outdo the other in self-righteous outrage, puffed up like parading peacocks, grandstanding in their (LOOK AT ME!) delusional state. We are in the endless, yet brief hour of the whitened sepulcher. Voices of reason and compassion are being shouted down on all sides.
Now… summon all of your objective capacity and note that they are EXPOSING themselves in crystal clarity as what they are. This is The Purpose of Demonstration in action. At the moment they have the security of fellow gasbags and swaggering blatherskites. What they do not know is who is watching them and to what end their conduct and performances will take them. THIS… this… is one of the principal enterprises of The World; to provide a stage for human behavior and in these times… never has it been so easy for one to be seen far and wide, in all their feckless and unashamed posturing. There is a point and a purpose to all of this. That we cannot plainly see this is a problem. The mind is both reflexive and reactive. It sees things within the environment that the senses provide. It seldom perceives outside of that. When it does it is termed The Intuition, or The Sixth Sense, Premonition or Visceral Awareness. Because it USUALLY sees only within a narrow parameter, all sorts of details are missing. One is then, a bewildered resident in a half-cocked universe.
Depending on whom it is present in, the mind is either their greatest enemy or their best friend. In these times, a great many people are transporting their adversary in the same compartment as their false self. When you don’t know who you are, it is not possible to know much else, or perhaps we should say, whatever you do know is not real. Such people cannot be reasoned with. Until trauma intrudes or epiphany arrives, there is no way to bypass the blind man who is waving his angry sword in all directions.
Proponents of Advaita philosophy talk about reaching wisdom by the process of Neti… Neti; by saying, “not this, not this” to everything, exercising divine discrimination to empty themselves of all false perceptions and identifications. No matter how effective they may be at this, they are not going to get very far, no matter how far they travel, until they deal with ‘I’; the indwelling I, that confronts and disputes everything having to do with the supremacy of that I, which has veiled the True Self. That intrusive and obscuring I is The Devil. The Devil is the mask that conceals the presence of The Divine. If you should have the misfortune to encounter this devil and the presence of mind to stand still and unmoved, you will see a corona of light outlining the form before you. That hidden light is The Angel who is concealed behind the illusory form. You are either BOUND or you are FREE.
Love is the medium and the vehicle that channels or transports you to a state of freedom. It is the cosmic vitriol that reduces everything to itself. Love is The Essential State and everything else is a mockery, created out of manipulating the essential vibration into something self-serving. Love gives itself away. Love… Pure Love melts away all bindings and attachments. THIS… this is what The Avatar is bringing and everyone will be revealed by the nature of their relationship to it. There is NO HIDING PLACE. There is NO DEFENSE against it. There is no power equal to or greater than it. It AUTOMATICALLY rules over all else. Love is the Power of God.
I know there are many out there who will say, “Oh… those are just words, anyone could say them.” It is the nature of the deluded to refuse to believe that anyone else might have something that they don’t possess. If they don’t have it then no one else does either. It ALL depends on the quality of your love and the quality of your love is reliant on your level of selflessness. As soon as you are not out for yourself, you axiomatically become the servant and friend of Heaven. Self Interest is The Devil’s Workshop. However, this fearsome specter has not one iota of power that you do not give it. You give it whatever reality it has. It is not real, or rather… let us say that it is a relative existence. As I NEVER tire of saying; The Devil is God as the wicked perceive him. One might say that The Devil is the shape that our fear gives to it. So long as we are in the thrall of any base passion-appetite or selfish ambition we are the bound subjects of this autocratic taskmaster.
We would have no fear if we were not under the self-imposed threat of the loss of temporary things. We would have no fear if we had no hostages to fortune. No matter to what extreme one goes to save or prolong their life, they cannot do it, and even when they do, for however brief a time, as some practitioners of certain disciplines have found, it is still for The Purpose of Demonstration. No matter to what extent one studies, or what austerities one performs, or however much one pleads or attempts to negotiate with him, Death is unmoved. No matter to what length one may go to attain liberation… one cannot, except through the mysterious power of GRACE;-
“And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now worketh in the children of disobedience: among whom also we all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love wherewith he loved us, Even when we were dead in sins, hath quickened us together with Christ, (by grace ye are saved;) And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. FOR BY GRACE ARE YE SAVED THROUGH FAITH and that not of yourselves: IT IS THE GIFT OF GOD: NOT OF WORKS LEST ANY MAN SHOULD BOAST. For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.”
I have given you Biblical scripture because most who visit here are Christian. I could present the same in other traditions as well. I am NOT a Christian but I am a FOLLOWER OF CHRIST and I say with conviction that I have met him, though whether that is believed by anyone else is of no matter to me, nor am I made any greater than another because of it. BY THE GRACE OF THE ONE, I have been made the servant of all.
It is very hard for most of you to come to terms with what you see taking place in the world. Your mind is in a constant struggle to be supreme and it retains its false position through endless reactions and distractions. It MUST BE made subject to the higher mind and it will be, once again… by GRACE. We are all reliant upon GRACE and without GRACE we will get nowhere. We can amass riches and supernatural powers, as some do. We can seemingly rule over the fate of others but we will have NO HIGHER UNDERSTANDING without submission to The Higher Self. This is an impassible barrier, as anyone who has attempted to bypass it finds out. For so long as we are manipulated by the despotic false self we will be in delusion.
EVERYTHING transpiring in the world around you is a scripted drama for The Purpose of Demonstration. People can come to their wit’s end arguing about it and railing against it to no avail. It matters not. This world is the sport of God. This is his Lila. This is his playground and we are ALL creatures of his whimsy. Stop trying to make yourself important. You already are important BUT ONLY once you have realized the true state of your relationship with the one abiding and ALL POWERFUL being, who is the totality of creation itself and who is intimately aware of every particle of it and who is resident in you and watching through your eyes and waiting for you to discover this. This I KNOW to be true.
There is a force that has now appeared in the world and it is the force of Awakening. People are responding to it in many different ways. It is an inexorable force. If you refuse to acknowledge and surrender to it, you will be brought down by it, in a manner according to the particular nature of your resistance. The Force of Awakening is an instrument of The Avatar, projected in advance of his appearance. One might say that Mr. Apocalypse is a permutation of The Avatar who comes in a variety of personifications, including The Rewarder and The Punisher.
I realize he is taking too long for some of you. You will find his appearance expedited to the extent that you begin to engage in the performance of acts that are in resonance with his nature. The Kingdom of Heaven is within you. Live and move and act as if you were already at all times in that kingdom. Simply behave in a selfless and dispassionate fashion. Every resident of Heaven has similar characteristics of conduct and comportment. Emulate them.
