We are all the Capo de Tuti Capi of the Tutti Frutti of Something.

I am going to be giving a metaphysical talk with demonstrated techniques and a short musical performance in the next few weeks in Zurich at a hall. Please email me or comment if you are coming so we have an idea of scale. Thank you.

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

May your noses always be cold and wet.

In recent days, I have been the recipient of a certain form of sneering hate mail from someone who claims to know all about what happened in India. The imperious and self righteous presentation is a marvel to behold. Things like that always tickle me because of their transparency and how they reveal intent. It really is comical to see someone passing themselves off as a Christian and in possession of great self control, losing it while they tell you these things.

I get rabid screeds now and then, almost exclusively from anonymous and when they are not anonymous, as is the case with one Alan Jong, they retreat into anonymity soon after the initial foray. In that particular case he even started going after readers. He is a regular contributor to the septic quarantine area of the blogs.

I measured negative commentary against positive commentary not long ago and found that the percentage rate is about 1% or 1 for every 100 hundred comments; hardly worth mentioning really and it put it in perspective for me, so as to ease my mind about certain concerns. In any case I wouldn't even mention this exchange, except for one very interesting feature. The person was very angry and in their anger betrayed a great deal more than they probably intended to. No doubt they are hoping I missed it but... I did not. It puts a whole new light on what happened and clears up my confusion about certain things because, as much as it appeared scripted to me, and as much as it tied in with the appearance of a conspiracy with another commenter, my assessment didn't feel right. I wasn't 100% about it all in hindsight.

Now the missing pieces of the puzzle have been provided. Apparently the principal player in all of this (besides me) was being overwhelmed by India and couldn't deal with it. It seems it was freaking him out and I, harsh and unfeeling as most of the readers know me to be; did I mention stiff necked and self absorbed? No, well let's put that in too. I did not provide a shoulder for this person to lean on and so THAT is why I was responsible for the whole affair. I probably should have read that blog entry. I might have learned something; not that that was in there, apparently, but... there could have been indications. The unfortunate flaw in this argument is that I was totally unaware that this was happening, as nothing was ever said to me. Regardless, it explains a great deal.

I myself was pretty overwhelmed by the experience of being there and that was why I was insulating myself with regular rations of beer, which did the job nicely. I'm bringing this up, not to beat a dead horse but to show that the truth will out and it usually winds up being something other than what the players were led to believe, most of the time. The more I think about it the more this seems very likely to be true because I also had a lot of energy swirling around me at the time and when the 300 year old guru announced to his followers that I was a God, that really set things off in a viral manner.

The coconut telegraph in southern India is something else and it wasn't more than two days later when my rickshaw driver started locking me in the apartment because death threats were being made against me for poaching on the established territory and picking grounds of others and I hadn't even gotten donation one yet. I immediately bought a ticket home and split out of there. It was only later on that I realized I had been thinking I wouldn't get out of there alive and for more than a week, after I got home, every morning when I woke up, I thought I was still in India. That has to be one of the strangest trips I've been on. One day I'm dressed in blue jeans and hanging out in my apartment wondering what it all means and the next day, I'm draped in an ocher sheet with garlands of flowers around my neck and a dozen or more people are dancing around the apartment chanting some chant I hadn't heard before, their hands raised over their heads like you see flamenco dancers do when they are clicking castanets (except they didn't have any castanets) and the 300 year old guru is sitting there grinning like it's all just fine and dandy.

I only tell this story because it happened. I don't want to make people cringe and or put off threatened egos who can't handle hearing certain things. I never bought into it for a minute because although I am not completely self aware, I am aware to a degree. People who know me personally outside of the blogs know that this sort of thing has happened to me a number of times and has been the cause of my leaving places that I actually liked living in. I've no explanation for any of it but the fact that it has happened more than several times is not a matter for dispute. The ineffable is no doubt entertaining himself with this because not only am I unprepared for something like this, I'm unqualified too.

Another thing this very scornful and angry fellow said was that it was the same thing I did to GurneyGob, showing no compassion. It gave the impression that something had happened to GurneyGob (a long time reader here). If something did happen to him I didn't hear about it and... he hasn't been around for awhile. If anyone should know anything about this, I would appreciate hearing because he and I are friends, inasmuch as one can be friends with someone in a virtual way, without having ever actually met them.

I suffer from a certain disadvantage in the job I do here and that is keeping track of everything. Not a day goes by when I don't receive a dozen links by email, or get invited to go to one web site or another to hear something, or am sent something to read that a reader felt was important and I am not equipped to manage all of this. Guaranteed, some readers get offended when they don't hear back from me about something because from their perspective, it's just a simple email exchange. From my side of the equation, it's part of a complex switching board kind of thing that also involves various projects going on, besides the daily output and also including my trying to put my affairs into order prior to migrating... where exactly? I don't have a secretary, a dogsbody, a Hobson or any of those things. I do have an elf, thank god. There's just me. A friend was recently on the radio and sent me an invite to come and hear it and I still haven't gotten around to it, nor has she heard back from me and I'm aware of it when it bobs up to the surface, generally when I am right in the middle of something else. Except for brief moments where I go to the bathroom, or I eat my one meal a day, or I shoot off to the store for something, or I do my daily form of gigong, maybe play the guitar or try to record; which I haven't been able to do for almost a week now because of everything else. Except for those things. I'm at this desk from between 7 and 9 in the morning until 12 to 2 at night, most of the time.

I'm not crying or whining about this. I enjoy it most days. It keeps me young and active. It's fulfilling, when I'm not dodging slander, or enjoying one of the ineffable's practical jokes on me, which happen more than you might think. There's an arcane, call it Hermetic, saying, which goes; paraphrasing here; "I look at every single event in my life, no matter how seemingly insignificant, as a special dealing of the ineffable with my soul." If you do this you are going to be the beneficiary of some surprising revelations. You'll also have access, eventually to, "future view". Future View is kind of like "Broad Daylight Awareness", except it's different. This brings me to a declaration which is common knowledge to initiates, certain mystics, sages and other similar types and that is that we are all Gods in the making. The Mormon teachings cover this and you've probably heard, "every man and woman is a star" Future View grants the ability to see things pending. It also spares you projecting things which may come true at another time as being already true. A lot of people who take themselves too seriously, or are premature about their eventual status, meet their downfall because of this. There are some things you can show up not completely prepared for. That is not one of them.

The quickest route to actualizing this truth in one's own life is by going about your daily affairs as if you were an operating extension of the ineffable. You try to act like and talk like him/her. Of course, the potential problem here is that not being actualized, we don't know exactly how a direct extension of the ineffable acts and behaves and if we are too secure about thinking we do know, we will become a lesson for others. What one has to do is to believe that once engaged in this practice that the ineffable, noting your sincerity and overall intentions, will inspire you as to the correct speech and behavior and this does not mean some permutation of shining teeth, smiling, new age sweetness and light. I've heard bona fide saints go off on people and I've heard the ineffable use salty language and make comments most would consider improper and unsuitable for such an august and incomprehensible personage. One might consider here that it is foolish to make any kind of move in this direction without sincerity and clear intention.

We cannot comprehend the personality of the ineffable, the essence of the ineffable, or the dimensions of the ineffable, so we might as well quit trying. There is no way we are ever going to comprehend the ineffable, not even a little bit, comparatively speaking, but what we can do, what we should do, is comprehend ourselves because... once we do, we will comprehend the ineffable to the degree of our personal capacity, even if all that amounts to is a shuddering awe. Not all of us have the same capacity. The ineffable is NOT politically correct. Some of us have and will always have, a deeper reservoir. Some of us will always be a better fighter, guitar player, violinist and tap dancer. You name it, someone is the capo de tuti capi of tutti fruitti of whatever. You are the capo de tuti capi of the tutti fruitti of something, you just don't know what that is yet. How you find your God Gig is in the process of self discovery and that is why everything else you may engage in otherwise, is either completely unimportant or secondary at best. The more you discover of yourself, the more Renaissance Capable you become and the more valuable you are to the operation of the cosmos. This doesn't mean you are ultimately more important or that the ineffable loves you more than anyone else, what it means is that you are critical to the process. This is a good thing; to be critical to the process and what that means is you are useful. There is no more certain guarantee of immortality and all that attends it than being useful.

When you behave badly you diminish your sense of self worth. When you inflate yourself, or believe your own press, you diminish yourself. When you go contrary to your own intrinsic values, you devalue yourself.. When you pursue wealth, you impoverish yourself. When you pursue fame you embarrass yourself. When you pursue power, you weaken yourself. These are all certain follow-ups from the original point of departure.

When we are exhorted to "know thyself", to engage in self inquiry, it is so that we can discover the marvels within. You must think of the subconscious as a vast ocean, in which many a sunken treasure chest lies buried in the depths. A properly programmed subconscious, is the cradle of divinity and the means of programming it is readily at hand and there are even varieties of techniques to suit personal preference. We are already rich, powerful and famous beyond our dreams, unfortunately we are still dreaming. These treasures are revealed in the process of awakening. Awakening can be consciously brought about and the means by which are already known to you. It's only the due diligence that might be missing.

End Transmission.......

Last night's radio broadcast is now up; my apologies for talking so fast. There was too much information for the time window (grin). I'll work on that in the future.

I like that. I've been repeating it to myself all morning...

Hey Vis did you watch "3000 Miles to Graceland". Hope you liked it if so. Some do, most don't.

“How is it that you make this complicated philosophy so simple and clear?”

Srila Prabhupada: “Because it is simple. God is great, and you are not great. Therefore you are not God, and you should surrender to God.”

Tamal Krishna Goswami: In the early days I was the temple commander in the La Cienega temple in Los Angeles. Prabhupada called me one day and asked me to get the Bhagavatam. He had his original Bhagavatam with the spiritual sky on the cover. He said, “Do you see this spiritual sky? It’s very big. You cannot fathom how big this is. Three-quarters of Krishna’s creation is the spiritual sky, and one-quarter is the material creation. That material creation has innumerable universes. One universe is so big the scientists can’t measure it. We’re on one planet in one of those universes out of innumerable universes, which constitute one-quarter of the creation. This one planet, Earth, is one of the smaller planets in this universe. On this planet there are seven continents, and on one of the continents, North America, there is a great city called Los Angeles. In that Los Angeles city, there’s a long boulevard called La Cienega. On that La Cienega Boulevard, there is one church building that is now a Hare Krishna temple. In that one Hare Krishna temple, there is one Tamal Krishna, and he thinks that he is very important.” (Laughs) I felt so small.

PK wishes to contribute this from The Urantia Book:

You are to let your light shine but do so with wisdom and discretion. No man, when he lights a lamp, covers it up with a vessel or puts it under the bed; he puts his lamp on a stand where all can behold the light. Let me tell you that nothing is hid in the kingdom of heaven which shall not be made manifest; neither are there any secrets which shall not ultimately be made known. Eventually, all these things shall come to light. Think not only of the multitudes and how they hear the truth; take heed also to yourselves how you hear. Remember that I have many times told you: To him who has shall be given more, while from him who has not shall be taken away even that which he thinks he has.”
When Jesus would have risen to depart, one of the lawyers who was at the table, addressing him, said: “But, Master, in some of your statements you reproach us also. Is there nothing good in the scribes, the Pharisees, or the lawyers?” And Jesus, standing, replied to the lawyer: “You, like the Pharisees, delight in the first places at the feasts and in wearing long robes while you put heavy burdens, grievous to be borne, on men’s shoulders. And when the souls of men stagger under these heavy burdens, you will not so much as lift with one of your fingers. Woe upon you who take your greatest delight in building tombs for the prophets your fathers killed! And that you consent to what your fathers did is made manifest when you now plan to kill those who come in this day doing what the prophets did in their day — proclaiming the righteousness of God and revealing the mercy of the heavenly Father. But of all the generations that are past, the blood of the prophets and the apostles shall be required of this perverse and self-righteous generation. Woe upon all of you lawyers who have taken away the key of knowledge from the common people! You yourselves refuse to enter into the way of truth, and at the same time you would hinder all others who seek to enter therein. But you cannot thus shut up the doors of the kingdom of heaven; these we have opened to all who have the faith to enter, and these portals of mercy shall not be closed by the prejudice and arrogance of false teachers and untrue shepherds who are like whited sepulchres which, while outwardly they appear beautiful, are inwardly full of dead men’s bones and all manner of spiritual uncleanness.”
  And then said this ruler to those who stood by: ‘Take the money from this slothful servant and give it to him who has ten pounds.’ And when they reminded the master that such a one already had ten pounds, he said: ‘To every one who has shall be given more, but from him who has not, even that which he has shall be taken away from him.’”
   Jesus saw a group of the Sadducees and Pharisees making their way through the crowd, and he paused for a moment until they drew near him, when he said: “You know how your fathers rejected the prophets, and you well know that you are set in your hearts to reject the Son of Man.” And then, looking with searching gaze upon those priests and elders who were standing near him, Jesus said: “Did you never read in the Scripture about the stone which the builders rejected, and which, when the people had discovered it, was made into the cornerstone? And so once more do I warn you that, if you continue to reject this gospel, presently will the kingdom of God be taken away from you and be given to a people willing to receive the good news and to bring forth the fruits of the spirit. And there is a mystery about this stone, seeing that whoso falls upon it, while he is thereby broken in pieces, shall be saved; but on whomsoever this stone falls, he will be ground to dust and his ashes scattered to the four winds.”
Thank you, nui loa, Les

Dear Visible,

Clearly clear transmission!

Kudos to the Invisible author!
Bravo to the willing scribe!

When we are clear, the yoke is light.
When we cloud up, the burden of being alive weighs upon us, because we are blocking the Divine Will sending treasure into our lives and the lives of those around us.

Gracias, mon amigo!

Visible said...

Yeah, I did and of course i liked it, though the kid was annoying. Finding Graceland was more touching and relevant to what I was talking about. Right now I'm watching 'Mr Brooks', also with Kevin Costner, one of the real sleeper excellently done thrillers of the last ten years.

Doug Pearson said...

Like I've told you before Vis, move to Mexico. It's inexpensive, non-USA and the weathers good. As you know, I'm here in Tepic. The climate here is about as good as you'll find anywhere. There's everything a body needs here including your high speed internet. Rents are cheap. You can be deep into the Sierra Madre in about an hour or on the beach in the same. Very few gringos here but a lot of people speak English and you don't need too much Spanish to get by. This place isn't one of those gringo communities they have set up here and there down here, like Chapala in Guadalajara. And no, it's not dangerous here unless you're a dope dealer. I could go on...

Hope you do a video of your talk.

"Mr. Brooks" is an excellent film. Loved it. I hope Costner does a sequel of that film; he said in an interview a while back that he would like to do one.

LV, I think a fundamental issue you have is the one of believing in a singular, all-encompassing universe. Really, what you're doing is forming a reality which suits your desires. It may or may not overlap with mine. But ultimately, what does it matter? You know who has the power here. Maybe you should explore the depths of your imagination to find out what's really possible instead of this continuous soliloquy which seems to have ventured past the breaking point of diminishing returns.

I suppose I should be grateful but it's not in my nature when my personal limitations are so numerous. Physical reality is just so, so slow to come into being. I feel like I'm just sitting around, waiting for this veil to be lifted.

Visible said...

Maybe that's the problem and not me. Maybe it's your veil. You familiar with the mirror image projection thing whereby one sees themselves in another, regardless of any actual similarities?

I was actually unaware that my view was supposed to overlap with yours. You know, maybe this is selfish of me but that motivation never even entered my mind. I'm also puzzled by your brief description of my philosophical view since that doesn't look at all like what I thought it was. Maybe I'm just confused.

Visible said...

A sequel... wow! that's a thought. What a tightly woven and well acted piece of film making.

I don't always agree with what you have to say, but I always enjoy hearing it. Today's article was particularly good, great work.

>"I was actually unaware that my view was supposed to overlap with yours. You know, maybe this is selfish of me but that motivation never even entered my mind. I'm also puzzled by your brief description of my philosophical view since that doesn't look at all like what I thought it was."

I wasn't describing your philosophy, but there was something I'm trying to clarify about the nature of any future occurrences. All of these things we've considered could become a reality, but there's only one thing worth knowing of any actual importance--any idea is a potential reality that can be manifested if it is what we/I desire.

I equate God with the infinite creative potential living within my being. Desire is the basic driving force, but do you know to what extent? It is unstoppable. It cannot be held back because all will stems from it to manifest any and every potential reality. There are those who repress this basic principal out of their own ignorance, but that is because they fear the snake.

I think you know what I am saying, but still you limit yourself to the "same old same old." What stops you?

Anonymous said...

I am surprised that someone in India told you that you were God. I would have expected them to ask what took you so long to realize it. (Grin)

Visible said...

I get all that Grant but you've got this fixed amalgam of viewpoints on this and that and that's fine for you and I've no quarrel with any of it but what I believe is what I believe.

Somehow you got the impression that you know more and that you are somehow empowered to teach me something, which you are doing in a weird way because you are creating shit I didn't say and you are placing values and lacks of value on it that is only and completely your projection. That's just how you see it from where you're standing and it doesn't make any sense. It would take to long to parse it all.

Nothing's stopping me and the only all seeing and all knowing person around here is you. No one else finds this to be the same old same old because the presentation changes all the time.

I didn't sign up for Grant's metaphysics 101 and I honestly don't get your point except where I see that you are attempting to put me in your classroom (and not very gracefully) but you're not saying anything at all, you're just making random statements "do you know to what extent?" You mean according to Grant?

I don't see anything coherent in what you're saying. it's disjointed and all over the place and there's no theme here, just a lot of declaratives with "I equate this" and "I'm clarifying that"

You seem to want to get into some kind of one upsmanship thing. I'm not in the mood. Believe what you like, I can't tell what it is you're trying to say except to say that I'm somewhere below you in terms of awareness. Why don't you just believe what you believe and I'll believe what I believe? That sounds like a workable plan to me.

Now, of course, I doubt you want to hear any of this, or that you will, in fact hear any of this but honestly, I haven't a clue what your point is except to attempt to make me look bad but there isn't anything that is accomplishing that either.

somebody said...

I've certainly not come here to fire shots at you, but I think with the way your comment came out you don't know what I'm actually saying to you. Unless, of course, you too are in on it.

I've begun to notice things more and more because of your "self-inquiry" business, and it's been very helpful to me. You've invented a certain symbology and that's fine, but like most other myths it has a variety of limits holding it in place, and if you have an understanding of what I say then I don't know why you won't just let out with the truth rather than arguing with me and constructing larger and larger veils. Not to say that truth is necessarily reductionist but there is something I feel you are refusing to say, or at the very least take interest in.

What do you think it is I'm saying, LV? It's no riddle.

The pursuit of wealth with a spiritual base is a spiritual activity, keeping yourself poor is not.

zepheri said...

The ice creeeam scene in Devil's Rejects,"tutti fucking fruiti", ad nausea. To which Otis says, "ok I'll stop, shut up". Ha

Visible said...

It's no riddle and then... you say nothing at all. You're fucking with me. This is yet another turn on the trolling efforts that have been coming around lately.

You've said nothing. You're argumentative without substance. You have no points that connect to other points; just random phrases with a lick at me thrown in. I'm hip to you.

It doesn't matter what you people come up with. It isn't going to work. Watch and see.

Visible said...

Not only is the pursuit of wealth with a spiritual base a spiritual activity but also, murder with a spiritual base, usury with a spiritual base, pederasty with a spiritual base, pretty much anything that one wants to put there...

What confuses me is, since nearly every spiritual text (except for New Age 'scriptures') condemns the pursuit of wealth because it is a material pursuit and it can't be anything but that, there's no need for me to continue with engaging this. You are also attempting to fuck with me and that won't work either. Watch and see.

insiam said...

Well thank you so much Vis for writing this post directly to me:) Used to beat me how you connect in such direct and at such opportune moments. But now i know :)

Any healthy scepticism i may have had regarding your authenticy has now completely left the building. I therefore offer my full and humble endorsement of this great and wonderfull man who is Les Visible - but also the truth.

Don't know if that makes a whole lot of sense. But is is heart felt and not meant to be sarcastic nor ironic in any way.

God bless you Vis and all that sail here.

Nautically speaking :)

Peter Brook's - "The Mahabharata"

Mahabharata - (You Tube)


Srila Prabhupada: That kuruksetre is still existing. It is not a myth or mythology. The nonsense people, they may say like that, but Krsna is the supermost person both in history... Purana means history, itihasa purana. Saram saram samuddhrtam. Vyasadeva compiled the Srimad-Bhagavatam by collecting the most important news from history. Purana means old history. It is not mythology. The foolish people, they say like that, "Mythology means something created." No. Don't take it that way. It is the essence of important historical incidences, record. Mahabharata is also history. Maha means great, and bharata means this land. Actually it is a history. But foolish people, without understanding through the guru-parampara system, they manufacture their own way of understanding; therefore they are misled. They cannot take full advantage of this Vedic literature because they are misled. We should not be misled. We should know always that we are lame, pangoh. Just like a lame man cannot go very fast. But by the grace of Krsna, even a lame man can go fast--not only go fast, but cross over the mountain."

I'll tell you what; just relax; have some fun; your body and mind will thank you.
