Dog Poet Transmitting.......
(drum roll!) Mr. Apocalypse is coming!!! (oh yeah) This is actually bigger and more surprising news than Harvey Weinstein because Lauer is a much more mainstream, every day, high profile guy. It certainly is surprising to see such a gaggle of Tribe members standing in for the pinata at a metaphorical Tijuana birthday party. There be cartels and there be cartels. Long ago we said here, again and again and even recently, as well in many variations on the theme, that power/force is cyclopean. It is neither good nor evil. That is defined by the intention of the one wielding it; as well as by whomever was appointed to make the call on the definition of what good and evil might be. We also said that the current of power that has been flowing through the different vehicles expressing it, through the institutions large enough to bring it to the general attention, were going to find that when they turned on that particular faucet, nothing was going to come out. We are in the time of the great power shift. There are many emergent cabals out there. There are many collectives of blinded horses, champing at the bit and dreaming about comeuppance and the victory of their idea of justice over what used to pass for justice and which amounts to them being in a position to be just as ruthless as their predecessors, if not even more so.
If you are careful, attentive and slow, that opening paragraph should make some amount of sense but... it's convoluted and twisty like a Twizzler. Right, Visible
They aren't going to get anywhere near the brass ring. The shift in power and the definition of what is and is not better for all of us, in every sense, is going to be determined by the general shared values in the aggregate human heart. In the same way that 'the second coming' is going to occur within the collective human heart. The same way that all events and investments have an outcome. The same way that all events are investments that generate events, or results as you prefer; all behavior is self defining and indicative of outcome, modified only by intention, which identifies the quality and essence of the self so engaged. Given that everything but the ineffable is in a state of flux and transformation, one can never judge anything beyond the merits of the moment it is engaged in, because everything that happens changes us. Bad guys don't always stay bad guys nor good guys good. Sometimes one is assigned a role that must be played for the sake of Karma or by divine fiat. In the Hindu tradition, the divine is known for sometimes putting those close to him in an antagonistic relation to the divine for the purpose of demonstration and education. We never know if what we see is what is and even if it is it is subject to change.
It took me a good part of my life to come to terms with the true nature of existence and the unrelenting force of change upon and within all things. We just don't know. This accounts for the degree of humility compassion, mercy and understanding that I see in the personalities and actions of the wise and illuminated. They know that but for fortune there go themselves as well. The reasons for why what happens happens and to whom it happens is often a mystery to most. What we grant to others we will find returned to us at a further reach.
Apropos of nothing and as a momentary diversion and digression, if you had gotten into Bitcoin when I had mentioned it you would have now more than tripled your investment. We are not investment bankers here, nor do we proclaim a savvy awareness of finance or the like. This is neither our area of expertise nor our field of enterprise. We do know a little something about trends. At a certain time a few hundred dollars of investment in Bit Coin would have made you a millionaire today. I'm bringing this up because the whole area of money and commerce and what gives value to which symbols, is on the verge of serious change and whether it be Bit Coin, or Ether, Peer Play or any of the other emergent crypto-currencies, or whether it be the result of your ability to see a need and fill it with the idea whose time has come, this is a period of tremendous possibility for those who are putting their attention on it. I do not bring this up because I want to motivate anyone to do so, or because I am moving into these areas of interest. I bring it up because the same holds true in the spiritual theater, according to the "as above, so below" algorithm. The doors to success in every area of engagement are wide open. If you want to be materially rich that opportunity is at hand and the same applies to spiritually rich as well. There is even opportunity for both, although a true possession of spiritual riches, already includes everything in its optimum appreciation, awareness aura. Nice terminology, visible.
Let's just say that the single most important thing anyone can remember, after the ineffable, is to be mindful that things are not as they appear, nor are we, as much to ourselves as to others. In the pursuit of truth, it is a certainty that you will come into conflict with those opposed to the truth and also those who are convinced of what they call, 'one's own truth'; to use a variant on those trendy new age themes of the moment and which applies to all the other travesties like 'reclaiming one's own power', or 'validating one's own story' or all of the other hopeless deceptions that come along with the unfortunate pretense of playing God. It is actually the willing surrender of all of these things that leads to one garnering them, as they were intended to be 'owned' or 'possessed' as opposed to being 'owned by' or 'possessed by' unreasonable facsimiles. To know the truth of what we are told by all those not telling the truth is that it is most usually so that ...it would be the opposite of what they say it is.
The witch hunts have gotten so bad of late that they are at the edge of ridiculous. Soon we will be hearing about someone casting a lascivious eye upon some fair and since damaged lass, 50 years earlier and which resulted in her having taken her own life finally (through drinking herself to death) but... due to the advancement of forensic cybernetics is able to speak her accusations from the grave. She alleges that he looked at her when she was twenty three years old at a dinner party and the force of the lurid desire, contained in that glance, transformed her into dual infernos of nympho maniacal, alcoholic, psychopathic gender confusion as if Winston Churchill and Ellen DeGeneres had been welded together in some lower astral body-shop and sold on the common market as an upgrade for the Ford Pinto. It is a similar process to the way Matt Lauer was manufactured in an underground lab at the Rand Corporation. None of that makes any sense and it wasn't supposed to. One Tribe member after another is getting the hot glare of the 3rd degree spotlight on their sexual low jinx's. A brief glance at this fellow, prior to reading the article, made it possible for me to make the right choice as to the likely direction of his attractions (grin).
My point in all of this is that (since this is a mathematical certainty- or absolute) as materialism gains a greater and greater stranglehold on the collective human consciousness, insanity increases logarithmically and exponentially ...or outwardly from a point in all directions, at an ever increasing speed, if that is easier to understand; the sort of tsunami generated by a large object dropped into an enormous body of water, where the water is electronically charged with a force that is amplified by magnetic generators located on an island chain that surrounds the larger body of water that the large object was dropped into. This is the sort of thing I get up to on a slow day.
I'm trying to say in various and eclectic ways that there is no better a time to seek after the ineffable right this moment, no matter when this moment may occur ...but if it occurs now then the good fortune which shines upon the endeavor is like what happens when a star goes supernova and you are standing directly in front of it, which would be anywhere as long as you were close enough. What happens is the same as what happens in the secret chamber of the heart where the slumbering divine awakens and floods the soul with an eternal, everlasting illumination. Of course the degree of difficulty is exhibited in the level of distraction that presently pervades the manifest plane. Should you find yourself capable of the level of concentration necessary, the sky is not the limit. There are no limits.
God is the only sane objective and devotion, or Bhakti is the most reliable and direct route. Once again, refer to the Greatest Commandment if there is any confusion about what is being stated here.
We do try to find new surprising and enterprising ways to say the same thing. Hopefully that has been somewhat accomplished here today. Seek after the ineffable in every moment until the moment has absorbed all past and future and can generate either at will or... something to that effect.
Later... unless later no longer applies.
