The Prison House of the Punishment of Flesh... in Search of Liberation.

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

Ah... the blooming... ever loving beauty and wonder of God. There is nothing in life that can be compared in value, metaphorical or literal that can come close to the presence of God in your life. Without God you have nothing. Every shine. Every impression of wealth. Every imagined security. Every concept of influence you may have is meaningless, if God is not in your life. Isn't it remarkable that God is real? More remarkable is that God is good. God is the ever loving beauty and wonder of God.

These are shameful times. People are pressing and pressing for this or that and the ironic truth is that everyone is looking for God. They just don't know that and that is why everything else is a disappointment and that is why we all grow weary. We get tired and stumble along with a saddlebag filled with regrets. Paramahansa Yogananda once said something like; take all your cares and sorrows and woes and put them in a bag and throw them in the ocean and then walk away with God. That's not verbatim but it is the solution. When you do this, what you are doing is handing your life over to the ineffable, who knows all the comings and goings, who is at the beginning and the end of all things and the certainty of continuance, through the process, between the beginning and end.

Once you know that God exists. That is all it takes. From then on, having turned the rudder over to the steady and unshakable hand of the supreme being, your life then moves through the most expedient and righteous way home ♫homeward bound, I wish I was, homeward bound♫

It seems so complex somehow. They say the devil is in the details. Confusion is the order of his disorder. It does not have to be so hard. Trust and Faith are two of the important qualities of God. The confusion makes us weak and hesitant. We drift. The hand on the rudder is not steady. Sensations come from every angle and direction. Look at me! Look and me! Desire me! Conspire within to acquire whatever it is that is acquiring you in the process ♫take another little piece of my heart now baby♫ So it is that we become divided against ourselves, conflicted, the punishment of the prison house of flesh. We torture ourselves. Nothing in this world is worth having and you never really have it. There is no war. There is no natural disaster. The war is within. The unnatural disaster is the push and pull of the planets within. A wise man rules the stars. You are on a surf board in a sense and here is one of those areas that the New Age tricksters like to work... go with the flow. Right. Flow right into the abyss. It is true that this is true in a sense. Going with the flow is the right idea when it is the right idea at the time. Timing is the thing and perfect timing is being in tune with God.

You do not have to be in tune with anything else, only God, because God is highest resolution to each and every situation. This isn't something that anyone can explain. It is experiential and that is the job of the guru- internal teacher- guide, what have you. The Lord within takes control and then there is the knowingness, which comes along with Certitude and Certitude leads to Determination walking hand in hand with Faith. These interlinking qualities of the ineffable, the true armor of God, are the most valuable items in all the universe. My constant prayer is; Lord, please grant me your qualities. Can you acquire the qualities of God without acquiring God? No. Of course, God is already there to begin with because you would have no life were God not present. God is the dynamic animating principle- DAP.

Just as the sun is responsible for all life on the manifest planet and without which there would be none, so it is in the metaphysical. It is what you do with it that counts. It is a matter of INTENTION. Intention manifests direction. That is the way you are going. It makes all the difference in the world. You can take the high road, or the low road, depending on whether you like crowds or not. Visible does not like crowds. Visible has been in the middle of it, a time or two, when crowds panic.

If I could only touch you, just once... and you would see... that all you have forgotten is remembered here in me. Waxing poetic, Visible? Moi? Heh heh.

Oh my friends, my beloved friends. Here we are, in this moment and... where are your thoughts? What is on your mind? If the divine is the centerpiece of your existence, then the divine is in your thoughts and wherever you may be, there is no better place you can be than there. The tragedy of this situation is that inevitably, in almost every case, this is where you will find yourself, eventually. Will it take a million lifetimes of tedious and painful repetition? Will you suddenly awake and comprehend what was the initial purpose of your having come into manifestation in the first place? “Success is speedy for the energetic.” That's what Krishna says.

What are you doing anyway? Really. If you take an assessment of your moment, what will you find? This, that... or the other thing? There is only one reason that any of us are here and that is to discover why we are here. We are playing hide and seek and someone once said, “Seek and ye shall find.” After all, the same person also said;

“Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.”

It's right there in front of you. It's right there in front of you all the time, if you can see it. It is so completely obvious, or there is no evidence at all. This depends entirely on your perspective. If you believe and know that God is real, you see God everywhere. If you preempt God for yourself because you are the only God in town, as far as you're concerned; Mr. Invictus, you can't see God anywhere because you've blocked him out in the mirror with your make believe face.

That is the timeless problem. We usurp the master of every mind and every heart to the fulfillment of the ultimate desire and put a fool in his place, while demons drink his wine and laugh at him in his disgrace. Then we wander on unknown roads in search of ourselves and the one place we don't look is within.

"Spread your wings, close your eyes,
let your love flow, come inside
Spread your wings, close your eyes,
let your love flow oh come inside."

Spread Your Wings

What a terrible waste of beauty and being. We're so close, so... close!!! My friends, remember, the more difficult the circumstances, the higher the return on your investment. It's no cakewalk. Because of the degree of difficulty, the result is exponential. Be aware of this. In other times it was never so hard. Kali Yuga is when the summing up and the harvesting takes place. ♫If you can make it here, you'll make it anywhere, it's up to you, even in New York♫

You should be excited. Each day should be a promise of discovery. There is only one item we need to acquire, out of all the tens of thousands of objects on display (and not on display) and that is our self. Find yourself and you need look no more for anything at all. You are the great prize to be won, if you can evict the impostors. Oh sure, I have a personality for every occasion! Actually one size (face) fits all. What is that face? It is the face of the sun. It is not the face of the moon. Here is another of those ageless truths. The moon has no light. It has only the light of the sun reflected. The Tibetan Book of the Dead illustrates this; When you pass, you see a brilliant light. It becomes too intense, then you see a softer light and you gravitate toward that. Then that light becomes too intense and you see another softer light and you gravitate toward that and so on and so on. We become food for the moon and the moon dutifully suits us up with another body so we can repeat our previous mistakes... or not. So it goes... or not. What's it going to be?

I could be saying this, one way or another, day after day and it seems like I do, which... in a strange fashion, accounts for me going missing for a week now and then. I like to put some space between the moments of repeating myself. What can you do... after all? Time was that I had tens of thousands of visitors every day but the more I brought God into the equation, the more the big news linking sites dropped me from the menu. I wrestled with that for some time, always thinking that I could slip God in here and there. It's like having too many commercials in your program. Well... now, the important thing is to be on God's cable channel and those who care more about the initial product know where to go and if some tens of thousands shift in the wind of whatever the wind presents, as it goes back and forth, at the whims of planetary influence and chance... so be it. Eventually... everyone comes home. God is not complete without all of the parts, however long that takes, is... how long it takes ...but it does come round. That is destiny. How long has this been going on? How many Yugas? How many Kalpas? The years are like grains of sand on an endless beach.

Thank you for coming by today. It is 11:30 PM where I am right now. Not the usual time for this but there you are and here I am and we are one and always shall be and time is our friend, not our enemy. God bless you all and you have my love and my never ending appreciation for having cared enough to come by. It is a great privilege to be able to do this and a wonder and a marvel of great gratitude for me that it happens at all. Thank you so much, truly... thank you.

End Transmission.......

What's on my mind? The repulsive monsatan is getting the snot sued out of it, and this is good. Two nasty opposing sides are also whacking each other, but I'm not gonna post what they are. I'm just gonna enjoy the show.

Now off to bed (Futon, really.), to get ready for today's disgusting graveyard shift; being I have a special project tonight with the kitchen drains. Dishwasher/janitor my arse. I'm a bloody catch-all for everything that goes wrong. I WANT THE JOB TITLE OF 'NOSE AT LARGE', DAMMIT! Well, at least my boss pets my nose. I get more as a bonus when I rescue her, so hey. Works for me.

Dear Visible,
If your audience has been whittled down by bigger blogs afraid to lose their materialistic focus, so be it. I will always come here. Thank you for singing for us.

It's becoming harder and harder to sit through discussions of how soon we'll all have self-driving electric cars, thus ending our environmental problems, while pretending collapse of "civilization" is practically impossible.

Even worse, any consideration of our relationship with the Ineffable is considered seriously ridiculous and passe.

Hopefully the imminent censorship will not include this site...

I've been reading your blogs for years,since 2004 I think, and have found them interesting, informative and more often than not useful.Your writings now are more useful than ever so I can't understand the drop off in readers given they must have read a lot of your prior work.
You may think what you write is repetitious but I liken it to a gem with a multitude of facets.
Each facet being the perspective of someone at a certain stage of development and you address that perspective and how you dealt with it and then move on to another.What you write may not seem applicable to me specifically at the time I read it but it's startling (use to be!) the number of times I find myself saying -"I was just thinking about that."
So ,thank-you for all you have done and please keep doing it.

Nice column, Vis. Thanks!

Back in New Age circles (grin), there was the old cliché that you attracted those of like energy or consciousness, and those of too dissimilar consciousness fell away. I have found that to be true. I also suspect that this cliché accounts for "the more I brought God into the equation, the more the big news linking sites dropped me from the menu." (Assuming this was not 'enemy action', which amounts to the same thing.) The gap was just too wide...

I do worry about the chances of the younger generations. Folk brought up in - or just subsequent to - the Flower Power days were steeped in spiritual possibilities. It was like Spring was in the air...

The backlash against that 'growth in consciousness' has been profound: Everything from greed-is-good to pushing for hard-core religious control (as opposed to spiritual 'guidance'). Whatever kept a person outside instead of going inside. Our younger generations have no such society-wide 'expectation' to draw-on. Let's hope all-God knows what It's doing (grin)...

And thank you personally, Vis, for being a 'placeholder' for those wishing to raise/sustain their consciousness in these (pre The Turning) times.

Best Wishes,
Ray B.

Hello Les,

Just wanted to share a thought with you: You are the one who got me talking about "the Ineffable" rather than "God" and that has been a big help for me, has made it possible for me to grow spiritually in ways that I never could when I contemplated "God."

When I think of "God," my mind immediately goes to an image of some Judeo-Christian guy with long hair and a beard, wearing a white robe, sitting on some throne. He's watching the world on his computer screen, observing all of the things he doesn't like while his finger hovers over the "Smite" key on his keyboard, saying things like "hmmm, Billy is being bad again. I never liked Billy. Maybe THIS will learn him up a bit" as he presses his favorite key on the keyboard.

Anyways, just wanted to share that thought with you. I'm curious, is there a reason you've gone from using "the Ineffable" to using "God" as your favorite term for the Deity? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this.

Best regards,

Wow. Mr. Visible, another ball hit out of the ball park.
Some kind of lifetime synchronicity going on. Over 50 years ago my 'farmer Rishi' explained to me the unsatisfactory repetition of death/rebirth. She longed to be liberated from it.
I said 'are you crazy, life is so beautiful, the beauty, the (seemingly) endless highs' of loving her and life itself.
Of course I have been lessoned re: the first Noble Truth many times since. And here again by you.

I read today that, at the rally and celebration of the Baphomet statue (in Arkansas, was it?) a Satanist supporter said 'why would I want to go to Heaven, sounds boring to me'. I think that he, like all of us really, has not caught on completely that “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, Nor have entered into the heart of man,the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.”

So it is with this 'liberation from rebirth' thing. We don't just cease to exist any more than we stand about in robes all the day with sore feet praising some old coot sitting on his throne. 'Eternity' if I may dare venture to say, is timelessness. It is said God exists outside of time and space, while yet permeating it all.
There is no time in heaven, but time enough for endless joys.

All a bit complicated eh? Like seeing through a dusty mirror whilst drunk with pride.

My beloved farmer Rishi was on the track, and so are you and many others here.
Thank you all,

- the beggar man, the Master of none.

May you heal quickly, and may your future be a gazzilion times better than you're past.

James Arthur Jancik said...

Jesus started to lose some listeners at the times his words were so true it was hard for some.

"As a result of this (His words) many of His disciples withdrew and were not walking with Him anymore. So Jesus said to the twelve, “You do not want to go away also, do you?” Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom shall we go? You have words of eternal life. We have believed and have come to know that You are the Holy One of God.” John 6:66-69

I say to you Les Visible; you have the words of Truth from the Holy One, The Ineffable One, to whom shall we read/listen? This piece is one of your best. Godspeed to good health and to more words of wisdom.

From the wisdom of The Pattern on the Trestleboard,if all I can offer is to sing your song back to you (& it is clear you have not forgotten it) just a gentle reminder of your access to :

All the Power that ever was or will be is here now.

I am a center of expression for the Primal Will-to-Good which eternally creates and sustains the Universe.

Through me its unfailing Wisdom takes form in thought and word.

Filled with Understanding of its perfect law, I am guided, moment by moment, along the path of liberation.

From the exhaustless riches of its Limitless Substance, I draw all things needful, both spiritual and material.

I recognize the manifestation of the Undeviating Justice in all the circumstances of my life.

In all things, great and small, I see the Beauty of the Divine Expression.

Living from that Will, supported by its unfailing Wisdom and Understanding, mine is the Victorious Life.

I look forward with confidence to the perfect realization of the Eternal Splendor of the Limitless Light.

In thought and word and deed, I rest my life, from day to day, upon the sure Foundation of Eternal Being.

The Kingdom of Spirit is embodied in my flesh.

Sending healing, gratitude & love to you dear Visible. We will hold the line, shakin it here' boss...

God speed.

From NJ with Love

Dog Bless Les!

I ONLY read posts that riff on the ineffable like yours do.

The ladder/hip thing really, really sucks. I wish you kind nurses, pleasant surroundings,
and good friends who will sneak in tastier food.

I you feel like it do some artwork or drawing - maybe your friends can upload them.

You are loved and appreciated by me, one of your strange friends in cyberspace

Happy Birthday BTW.

Bless the Lord, O my soul; and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits; Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; Who healed all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; Who crowneth thee with loving kindness and tender mercies. Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; So that thy youth is renewed like the eagle's.

From Bill C.
Thank you Les for another through, yet deliciously truthful, tome of salvation which I hear means home. Your untimely fall from another ladder, like in your abode Central European Time, says that something big is in the works, to me anyway. You and I and the company we keep here know that all that happens happens for a reason, a season or a lifetime! Hope you have a chance to read my e-mail to you which may digest a bit better than this public comment. I've turned a lot of my like minded friends onto you blogs and am constantly telling them how God inspired your writing has become. Some care, others pay me lip service, yet knowing that at some level you are reaching many. My courage to speak of the ineffable, my Higher Power in 12 step terms, bodes well for those with ears to hear and eyes to see how much I've changed through God's grace!! Last stanza of the 3rd. step prayer says, 'Take away my difficulties, that victory over them may bear witness to those I would help of Thy Power, Thy Love and Thy Way of Life. May I do Thy Will always'.
Les Know you are loved by many! Godspeed in your recovery and may you know that you are loved in a very special way! (right ineffable!)
Bill C.

Happy birthday, dear Vis! Celebrate the wonder of You!

Ah well, when one begins to speak divine truth in more fullness, those unable or not willing to embrace, will fall away. I, for one, have been enriched by what we are now giving here at the blogs. Not that I wasn’t before, yet the more rarified the air becomes, the more it resonates with me. Thank you for the wisdom expressed....I appreciate the gifts you have shared with us.

Wishing you much ease, comfort, grace and renewed well-being.

The Four fundamental powers are Understanding, Grace, Perception and Consideration.

These produce Truth and Form which in turn produce Conceptualization and Memory ("It's like remembering.”)

This leads to Love and Idea (The Thoughts - Birds of Heaven that land and rest in the branches of your new mind - nous - arisen from the tiny seed of faith planted in rich soil and blossoming inward like the fruit of the fig tree yet as massive as the mustard plant.)

And we are led to Peace and Wisdom.

Home. Heaven. The Garden. Eden. Paradise. Nirvana. And It has been here the whole time. We just didn’t have the eyes to see it.

It all begins with a longing, a carnal thought coaxed out by an invisible spark accompanied by the Pure Will of Intention. The definition of Prayer.

And prayer is efficacious.

This spark, this seed, that has always been there, waiting. And we know it vaguely at first but the recollection grows until you recognize the old friend that has been stowed away until its perfect time.

A seed must die (of itself) before it blossoms and becomes something new. Yet this death has no sting and the grave remains empty afterward.

Peace and Wisdom. God. The ineffable. The Destination and the Reason.

Order has been established out of the chaos. The Beginning and the End. Alpha and the Omega. I Am.

That is the template.

We must seek His Will.

We must ask for His immense and fearless Will to allow us to achieve the conductivity and strength so we may obtain the Gnosis and bring it back to the Here and the Now.

We must knock to receive his Will.

And there will be struggle, not against men of flesh and blood, but against those invisible powers and principalities, that rule the darkness from the high places of spiritual wickedness.

And this is an impossibility of the self. The self loves it-self. It doesn’t want to die and become something different. Our very own personal Gollum.

Yet perhaps Smeagol found redemption.

This is what is requested.

The state of Metanoia.

And then one finds the next chasm and there is a second leap to be taken.
