Dog Poet Transmitting.......
There seems to be no end to the difficulties that people experience trying to understand Karma. There are various reasons for this. They can't resolve the seeming lack of Justice in this world. NOT EVERYTHING HAPPENS IN THE SAME LIFE. That is where a lot of people falter in their ability to comprehend the nature of Karma and it comes down to a lack of Faith and that is usually the result of Anthropomorphism because we create a nonexistent God, based on the model of our own failures and shortcomings. GOD IS NOT LIKE US! He does express through us when WE ALLOW IT but that is, especially in these times, a rare event.
MOST PEOPLE... MOST PEOPLE are unable to grasp the immaculate precision of the workings of the universe. We fuck things up and... once again, PROJECTING... convince ourselves that God fucks up. GOD DOES NOT FUCK UP! Sorry about the language which, as you know, I do not like to employ it in that manner BUT... YOUR PROBLEM in understanding ANYTHING is that YOU THINK YOU KNOW. You think you know how it is and how it should be. YOU DON'T. Do yourself a BIG FAVOR and admit the paucity of your knowledge and wisdom. Until you do, YOU WON'T GET ANY!!! I DON'T KNOW! Make it a mantra and make it visceral.
How is it that you cannot see how utterly HUMBLE the 'truly' realized and illumined are? Why do you think they are as humble as the ground itself? Is it so hard to get a clue here? Okay... I am not talking to everyone and I also am not looking to demean or diminish any of the rest of you. ALTHOUGH... you ought to consider doing so on your own. GOD is NOT impressed by the self-important, the know-it-alls, the proud and the vain, and a litany of other shortcomings I could list. Keep it up and see what happens; ESPECIALLY IN THESE TIMES.
It is a SIMPLE thing; do bad shit and bad shit WILL come back on you. Do good things and good things will come back on you. If you were responsible for harmful acts upon life forms of a particular kind or age group, you will return and experience it as a member of that kind and age group. IT IS NOT ALWAYS LIKE IT IS NOW. This is a specific and particular period in which long-standing debts are being called in. I don't like being here during this but here I am. I am fortunate in regard to why I... personally am here but I have been extremely unfortunate concerning the cost of it. The best I can say is 'it comes with the territory'.
You want things to be different? CHANGE YOURSELF! This world, this unique theater we are in, is ONLY ONE OF MANY PLANES OF EXISTENCE. Once again I am going to link Chapter 43 of Autobiography of a Yogi, which deals with the resurrection of Sri Yukteswar. Here you have the matter EXHAUSTIVELY gotten into. Has it occurred to anyone that THIS COULD JUST AS WELL BE YOU? Put in the time and effort and IT WILL BE. For some of us, this is much closer than you might think and for others, it could involve a number of lives BUT... ALL YOU HAVE TO DO is set off for Your Father's House this very hour. Upon my soul, I GUARANTEE the validity of this. You don't want to believe? You don't want to do the work? I can't help you and no one else can either.
This world is a zone of Trial, Testing , and Temptations. It is a Boot Camp. You don't have to be here!!! You put yourself here, at least as far as the circumstances and conditions that you are presently experiencing. This is a place of suffering because of IGNORANT DESIRE. Stop wanting anything but to Love your Creator and to place your life completely and absolutely in his hands and HE WILL WORK IT OUT FOR YOU AS EXPEDITIOUSLY AS POSSIBLE!
Not everyone here is suffering.
Let me bring up the matter of GRACE now. It is child's play for The Divine to wash your slate clean this very moment should he so choose. Yes... Karma is an inflexible verity, UNLESS GOD CHOOSES TO SET IT ASIDE. The Power of God is LIMITLESS! What does that mean? It means it is LIMITLESS. There is NOTHING that God cannot accomplish in no time at all. Whether he does so is another matter but HE CAN DO IT and HE HAS DONE IT.
On the matter of Grace, let me say it might prove more complicated than that. Yes... you could have your slate wiped clean BUT... somehow or another, in one fashion or another you would owe for it. Your own divine nature would COMPEL you to respond in kind; IN A SERVICE ORIENTED MANNER. This DOES NOT NEGATE the wiping of the slate. The slate is still wiped. God loves you! I don't know how to even begin to explain this or communicate the degree to which God loves you. You are the one hanging your head in shame and hiding your nakedness, NOT GOD.
So long as one believes in the might of his/her own power, just so long is one left to the fate of personal devices. So long as one believes in the force of personality to adjudicate the matters and means of one's existence, just so long is one subject to the petty tyranny of the false self. One is the whipping boy of their appetites and desires and pays the freight in all kinds of less than pleasant ways. Life DOES NOT HAVE TO BE LIKE THAT.
WHY ARE WE HERE? It is Karma that has placed us here. We are experiencing the fruits of our former actions. We could be experiencing it in all sorts of other places, where our Karma might have put us. We suffer Karma as the result of IGNORANCE and ignorance is the offspring of our presumed certainty of knowing when WE DO NOT KNOW. I remember back when I thought I knew. I knew all kinds of things. I had read all kinds of books. I was an expert on many things and I could talk at length about any of them. However... I didn't know shit, or perhaps it might be better to say that what I knew was shit. God- in his Grace, had mercy on me and sent someone to inform me in a visceral fashion that I did not know. The freedom and relief that swept over me was incredible.
I've said it before more than once. I will say it again because, obviously, it has not taken in every case. If you 'think' you know then God does not know. If you know you do not know then God will inform you of everything you could ever want to know, as long as you are aware that you do not know. God lets anyone and every one of us play God for as long as we insist on doing so, FOR THE PURPOSE OF DEMONSTRATION! Our playing God will... inevitably... lead us to being informed otherwise as to the truth of it. ONLY God can play God effectively. He can and does do it THROUGH US, if we only STEP OUT OF THE WAY. It is like bullfighting and we are the bull. We have to get out of our own way or... yeah, we WILL SUFFER. Personally, I like to employ what I call 'bullfighting with a scalpel' where the scalpel is Discrimination.
There is a perfect storm brewing my friends and it is going to be one of those things that come up all of a sudden with little or no warning but which, upon hindsight, one could say; given they were still around to reflect upon it at a later moment, "It was there to be seen, I realize now BUT... I just didn't see it, because all the tinsel, glitter and other distractions got in the way." Amidst all of the cultural upheaval and ever-intensifying, spontaneous AND PROTRACTED insanity, we should very much be mindful of the possibility of NATURAL and supernatural events. We are entering into a particular phase where almost anything could happen. All that I, personally know about it, is this image that has been with me for some time, of a moment in which the whole world is reduced to a shocked silence and after which nothing can ever be the same again. That is all I have as far as prognostications go. It is all the same image that keeps coming up and it is filled with awe and wonder in some instances and a terrible sense of dread in others.
Pay attention! Look around you at the accelerating chaos and the feckless responses of the leadership. How I read it is that there is something present in each one of us that is causing us to act and to not act and in most cases, those engaged are oblivious of its occurrence and especially of the consequences. These are times of trepidation, one must tread lightly and with a care as to how we go. Sometimes I wish I knew more about the patterns of planets and stars but my intuition has proven remarkable as a working substitute for my lack of astrological savvy.
I am aware of the intensity of this posting and the force of delivery. It would be greater if I felt it would serve without turning the reader off. Something VERY BIG is in the wind; at least that is the reading I am getting but details are scant. The best I can say is that present trends APPEAR disturbing. HOWEVER... HOWEVER... God is in COMPLETE COMMAND of everything and is directing all seemingly unrelated circumstances to his appointed ends. This is the time to shelter beneath his wings and seek his counsel. Otherwise, it is altogether possible for one to get swept up in the powerful currents of madness that are rushing and pressing in all directions.
I do not want to be an alarmist. For me... there is no cause for alarm because I am fully and irrevocably committed to THY WILL BE DONE. I am convinced beyond all argument otherwise of the profound mercy, compassion, forgiveness, and love of The Creator and Director of all Destinies. I seek nothing more than to pray that HIS WILL be revealed to me so that I might acquiesce. For the one who is surrendered and undivided, there is no cause for Fear or Distress. All will be perfectly resolved NOW AND ALWAYS.
The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.
Today's Song is; ♫Give it Your Best Shot♫ I must apologize for no longer having the power and clarity in my vocals that once I had. Age has reduced my abilities but hopefully, enough remains that the message is conveyed.
I haven't been by Pocketnet, except to post in some time. I still regard it as a great place to get news and opinion and it is uncensored and run by some terrific people. I'm just really busy with all of my projects and don't even follow the news except for a cursory visit to get the main items. Anyway... here it is and I REALLY APPRECIATE the support you give me there. I will be round there again once I get these albums done.
