News of rapidly advancing poverty in America is starting to appear in the media. Not by accident, things like this are also appearing alongside, or further down the page. Signs of conspicuous consumption by the clueless rich are readily available to see, at least in the media. It's doubtful that 'you' will see any of it up close. It's ironic to see the conspicuous consumption of the fatuous rich, behaving as if they've gotten their due and don't mind hooting it up in the midst of terrible economic times for the rest of us and painting a giant target on their backs. They don't see this? Why don't they see this? They are not permitted to see it because they are for the purpose of demonstration. They party down like there's no tomorrow, waltzing by all the want and desperation of their fellows that they had a hand in creating, believing that the orchestra is playing only for them. Who could possibly need solid gold toilets and wash basins? Who needs an eleven million dollar watch, does it tell a special kind of time? It tells time alright but they don't know what time it is, or mind the hours and days that pass as they dine in their private mortuaries, already entombed, already dead and dead in the only way that really counts. What does it say in the Bible? “ For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his only soul”? If you Google or Bing this, you can see how the many differing versions alter the text and meaning. This has been happening at an accelerated pace of late and significant quotes have been either changed beyond recognition or disappeared entirely like, “even the devil is transformed into an angel of light at the given moment, be not deceived”. So, logically, who does this mean he works for? Swish... nothing but net. Well, it's still there but not like it was a couple of decades ago. Why change it? It's not about any one specific change, it is about a series of changes incrementally applied.
You dig into the first level of appearances and new things emerge. Few choose to dig to any depth, afraid of what they may discover about this world and, more frighteningly, about themselves. Is it true? We'll see. There are no limits to the appetite of greed and behind the backstory, there is always the real story. There is a vast library of offenses that seldom come to the public's attention because the presses, both media and currency, are owned by the people committing the crimes, or are employed by them. How do you get the attention of people who don't pay attention and who, even if they were told and shown the evidence, would say, “Go away, I don't want to know”? Good question., I submit one sinkhole in Louisiana and all the implications forthwith. I also submit the New Madrid fault line, courtesy of BP and the Royal Family, along with assorted 'don't give a fucks'. I submit the looming California earthquake. It's on deck and soon to be seen. Count on it.
I've had this dream a few times. I know it's a real premonition because of the details. I am walking in LA but it's not me. I'm occupying someone else's consciousness. The dream is presented in hyper reality so that all of the details are sharp and precise. Most of the dreams I have like this, which don't come often, are always of this visual quality. I'm on a residential street and suddenly everything goes quiet. I can even hear the quiet and I sense the minds of all of the four-legged and winged creatures. There is an extended stillness that appears much longer than it really is. I can feel the animals begin to move at speed for some other location. I can feel something coming. The ominous sensation is one of extreme dread and helplessness. After what seems an age, as I stand there frozen, the ground begins to move beneath my feet. It's like being in one of those children's blow up, party castles, only there are no rubber walls to bounce off of. Then it is all confused for a time, as the Earth ripples and undulates beneath my feet and then I hear something like a hundred express trains, moving on parallel tracks and the dread moves up several octaves, into sphincter loosening fear and I turn to look behind me and I see in the distance, above all of the buildings, an enormous wave of water, hundreds of meters high, coming toward the land and... me. The dream pretty much ends at that point. Even now I can close my eyes and visualize it. That's how strong it was. ♫standing on shaky ground♫
I had another similar dream where I was in Peru. II might actually wind up there. I was on a plain below the Andes mountains. A descendent of the Incas was sitting on a rock playing a flute and the music was visually moving up to the sky. There were 30 or 40 people strolling around and the grass was an iridescent green. Every color had a surreal glow, unlike what we see here in ordinary consciousness. I looked up at the mountains and between two cliffs I saw these winged sphinxes, like extremely high definition cartoons, bouncing off of the peaks. There was this sense that the world had changed in such a way as to be unrecognizable as its former self. Thing's happened before and after this but I am unable to remember them. A sense of powerful awe attends these forgotten moments and this dream also comes up on me with an irregular frequency. Both of them seemed prophetic.
We have been lulled into a sense of false security because so many of us thought that various things should have happened some time ago. For many, the passing of 2012 was a landmark non event. So many things continue to tremble on the verge and many of us have reached an accommodation concerning this. It's a form of uneasy complacency. Be not deceived. The reason for this inexplicable (boy, I sure seem to like that word) extended time period, is that it is an opportunity from providence to get our act together. It is also there to give us a chance, all of us (as if we have not been given so many chances already) to rise to the occasion because many of these things do not have to happen. They do not have to happen. They will only happen if there is no alternative and that is up to us, both collectively AND individually. Whatever the fate of another, it does not have to include you. Don't let the wrong magnetism overwhelm you. There are all sorts of practices that one can engage in which neutralize the pull. What needs to be remembered is that when we are not consistent in this, the negative magnetism does not take the day off. Evil doesn't rest. It can't.
There are various ways to look at the world. You can see it as random happenstance and many people do. Viewing it from this perspective robs it of all meaning and plays havoc with moral compasses. You can see it as an orchestrated symphony, with a conductor, this connects you to the inner ear, so that you can hear the music and the byproduct of that, is harmony. You can see it as flat inevitables of the observable stages. This steals your joy. Due to the manipulation of Christian scriptures, many people believe that they have only one life. This is absurd and I won't even get into the argument(s) to the contrary. What is true is that a human birth is more rare than most imagine it to be and yet... this does not have to be the case. One needs only to properly focus on what is real, according to the footsteps of those walking in the right direction and those are not hard to find because in that direction there are not many footprints. ♫Try to make it real compared to what?♫
Run with the crowd and die with the crowd. Walk the solitary road and disappear from the eyes of the world. Every one of us has a spark of something within them. What we lack is ignition and that comes about through mysterious contact. Of course, having a piece of flint and an industrious nature, you never know. There is not a one of us who might be reading this that lacks the possibility and as I've said by analogy; if you pick up the guitar and play at odd intervals for half an hour here and there you're going to get the degree of ability and performance you put into it. If you're at it for a few hours a day the results will soon be significant and if you play all the time you will be able to do it at a professional level soon enough and that translates into every area of endeavor that the mind is capable of imagining, no matter how decent, useful or productive it may be, or how indecent, useless and not productive it may be. That's how it works. So many people go around bemoaning their state. Often times they are trying to succeed at something they have no emotional connection to, so where's the charge? Where's the connection? ♫connection, I just can't get no connection♫ Even if you have to work for free at something you do feel connected to, you will find success or be routed toward some higher octave of the same.
People talks about the laws of Nature and fail to realize that they are aware of only a few of them. This should be a concern. Who is going to hip you to these mysterious laws? Well, consider the source; where do they come from? That's something Lao Tzu had down and he was rewarded commensurately for his due diligence to what's important, as compared to what amounts to pissing into the wind. The story goes that, disappointed with the state of humanity and recognizing there was nothing he could do beyond what he had done, he got on a water buffalo and rode out through the great wall of China to parts unknown,. Before he was allowed to leave, the door warden, who was also an initiate, prevailed upon him to sit down and write out his wisdom, on whatever medium they were using back in the day. Thanks to him we have what we have today, where it sits, for the most part idle, while Kim Kardashian and Piers Morgan do their dog and pony show, on the main stage, under the big tent. It will always be a matter of priorities and the personal determination of what those priorities are.
Your real progress and attendant rewards may be invisible to you for some time. That's to sort out the uncommitted and insincere. Once past that period of trial, you only have to put one foot in front of you and keep your attention on the light. You'll know when you've gone off the path because you won't be able to see where you're going anymore. That should be evidence enough for anyone but... strangely enough sometimes it is not. You would think that the pornographically rich would realize that they should keep their excesses private but they cannot. You would think that the Zionistas would realize that what they do is best performed under the cover of darkness but they do not. You would think a lot of things would occur to a lot of people but... so it goes.
