You’re Looking Good, Peckerwood.

Dog Poet Transmitting…….

I guess we will have to delay the definitive treatise on political correctness and multi-culturalism for a little longer as we have spotted something in the Petri Dish that looks a lot like Ebola, even if it doesn’t eat your face… literally …but eats up other amorphous portions of a person’s being. These portions of a person’s being are amorphous only from the perspective of a society which never saw a photo-shopped ass that it didn’t prefer over the living light of the soul.

I think of the soul as being like a mirror. It carries the reflected light of the spirit. It’s less of a mirror and more of a vessel, of course. It’s something like the phial that held the glimmer of Galadriel which was to be a light in dark places for Frodo. I need the mirror image (pun intended) for my presentation though and so we’ll go with that.

You can throw shit- or just about anything- at a mirror and the staining is temporary… or can be temporary; you only have to wipe it off. It’s a good metaphor. In these dark days there are many who prefer to parade around with the ordure in place because they think it adds to their allure, the same way a dog thinks it smells better when it rolls in a roadside carcass and doesn’t understand why you aren’t as impressed as it hoped you would be. All the fashionable swains are wearing eau de dead armadillo these days.

You can let dust collect on the mirror until the reflection is no longer visible and lots of people do that too because the light of the soul is an annoyance in the uptown watering holes where the exotic animals like to congregate. They prefer a flattering light and the light of the soul is not going to accent the features they are looking to showcase. It’s better to dim your lights if you want to drive very far on the wide highway that leadeth to destruction thereof (grin).

I’ve been around a certain amount of celebrities and some of them were very famous. I have some idea of the sort of personality disorders that surface when people get the idea that they are God on Earth. Even though there are thousands of these God’s on Earth they still believe in their own unique luminescence even as it fades inexorably into inevitable deliquescence down the road. They operate in all areas of endeavor from the playing fields of bouncing balls to the amphitheatres where they spend their time groping their balls, for the unrequited desire and delight of those secretaries who have to put on their makeup on the Staten Island Ferry every morning, in the cavernous toilets, as they sail to New York City and dream of their moment in the lights when their number comes up… someday, as it will for everyone who wants it, which… explains some of the performances we get to see, especially these days.

Some may disapprove of my knocking celebrities and some may fear I’ll catch it up the road for my efforts. Well… even if I was St. Francis of Assisi (and I’m not) there would be people disliking me, even if I never said these words so… I might as well have my say since it won’t change any of that. You might want to drop in at Assisi if you’re ever in Italy and see what they’ve done with the place. I’d like to see Francis’s face if he were to get a look at it. It’s like Graceland, only worse. I was much amused to see the monk’s sauntering about and chatting on their cellphones; when they weren’t playing rock star for their adoring public (it looked like a theme park for pederasts)… but I digress.

So, Leonardo Dicaprio gave a million dollars to the Clinton-Bush charity for the Haiti’s (Hades?) relief charity that they put together? This is similar to some member of the middle class making a hundred dollar donation to a cause; I think Leonardo gets about 20 million a film… probably more. That hundred dollar donation is not going to garner the same publicity however. That’s not my point though. My point it the Clinton-Bush charity.

Aren’t both Clinton and Bush personally responsible for a great deal of suffering in Haiti irrespective of the earthquake? I believe if you look into the matter you will find it to be so and there’s a great deal of talk that the earthquake was engineered by unnatural means. It’s not like the government doesn’t engage in manufactured crises for the purpose of profit. They might not have had this particular technology back then but… they do now. If they did do the deed, one can reasonably assume that Clinton-Bush was and are associated with the forces that carried it out. I can see The Walrus (Clinton) and The Carpenter (Bush) strolling arm and arm through Port au Prince bemoaning the tragedy. I can see it clear as crystal.

Of course Madonna and Sheryl Crow had to show up; looking good peckerwood! I think we’ll include my homage to Madonna as the song for today at the end of this… this… whatever this is. There’s no word on whether Sheryl has hooked up with Payton Manning yet. He’s a bigger human billboard than Lance Armstrong and was a heavy Bush supporter. It seems the logical choice.

I would dearly love to see the Haitian people get relief, make no mistake about that. Pardon me if I am a little uncertain that it’s going to arrive via Clinton-Bush. I see where the mining companies are virulently and violently active in various parts of Haiti and; weren’t the mining interests the biggest contributors to Bush the Stupid’s presidential campaigns? You know, I believe they were. This is one of those moments where you can see irony and hypocrisy equally balanced on the seesaw. It’s a beautiful thing.

I suspect there are some legitimate charities but you will have to do the research. I suggest you do. Money has a funny way of not arriving at its advertised destination. I suspect there are some celebrities who actually give a shit about the Haitians. I suspect they were already helping out before the tragedy… or helping out with some condition of human misery… somewhere?

Hundreds of thousands of Haitians have hit the road for other places which, I suspect is an indication of how effective the relief efforts have been at the primary location. Why would they go migrating into the unknown when all the food, shelter and assistance are back the way they came?

I have the highest regard for Medicins Sans Frontieres (pardon, my keyboard does not have accent a grave or accent a gue) and the remarkable work they have done around the world under the most trying of circumstances, most often caused by people like Clinton-Bush. I know there are selfless lightworkers around the world who serve beneath the radar. They are vastly outnumbered by those showing up for the cameras. I hope you can forgive my cynicism. I’ve see things and they are hard to forget. I sense things and they are hard to deny. Once I become a little more realized, I will probably be more understanding than I am now. This piece is not to praise those who are doing the right thing. This piece is to point out certain odious behavior that I suspect is afoot.

Clinton-Bush and their charming wives (one of whom is certainly the incarnation of Elizabeth Bathory; or that might be Barbara Bush), family and associates in the trade along with their comrades in weapons development, the arms trade and the financial world see no confusion of purpose between their wholesale mass murder and genocide of Iraqis, Afghanis, Pakistanis, Lebanese or Palestinians and their glad-handing the Haitians who are migrating away from those firm handshakes of support as I write these words. No, it’s business as usual and there’s plenty of death and suffering at both ends of this spectrum, just the way they like it.

Celebrities are generally a clueless lot and actors are among the worst. You morph a certain way when you pretend to be the people who actually did or experienced what you are misrepresenting.

I believe in charity. I recently helped someone out who made the whole process extremely difficult and then didn’t bother to thank me. It’s not about thanks though. It is about doing the right thing and also finding out you can’t help some people. I do not mean this in regard to the Haitians… it’s just a life observation. I believe in charity and I believe you should be engaged in it at all times and that it is only occasionally about money. I believe it should be kept as private as possible and it should reach the intended recipient too. I believe in a lot of things that I don’t see much of but I do have a lot of faith in humanity and my gratitude goes out to those who do what they can as they go. As for the rest of you, “verily you have your reward”.

Love Song for Madonna

The New Shangri-La

Listening for His Master’s Voice.

Dog Poet Transmitting…….

Inside my mind the area around February; but mostly February, has been sending me alert signals for some time. It’s not personal alert signals but more to do with world conditions going quantum (if I can put it that way… and I did). Things pass through my head like trains in and out of a station. I have a new way of looking at them now and it beats the old method, which was often reflexive. Everything means something but the meaning isn’t always on the surface or it’s symbolic, the way dreams are.

Last night on the radio show (now available for download) I talked briefly about something and it ties in with what I’ve opened with. I was saying that a lot of the discomfort and uncertainty that some of us are feeling is not our own but is what we are picking up from the population through our increased empathetic awareness. It’s an important point. Interestingly, an astrologer friend mentioned this same thing to me a week or so ago. It’s important to be able to separate your feelings from the ebb and flow of the ocean’s courses.

In some ways this is like what happens with the Web Bot linguistics system. They draw their projections from the web which… is also an ocean. Our little personal inlets connect to the greater ocean of surrounding souls in the encompassing mind. We are not independent of it. A few decades ago, the term ‘vibes’ was ubiquitous and there was an extended awareness of it in certain communities of kindred souls who may or may not have ever even encountered each other but who all drew the same meaning from it. Vibes are a good thing to pay attention to but it’s not nearly as effective as if you have the right understanding of how to interpret them.

Being a lighting rod, or an open channel, or someone who has pushed out on the boundaries of what is generally understood as the personal self, are likely to be getting all sorts of input these days. I realize now that that is what has been responsible for some of my wild and uncomfortable rides over how ever long it’s been happening. The flash of this realization automatically brought that end of things under control… for the moment… heh heh. Seriously, it was a pretty impressive breakthrough as these things go.

The powers that think they are the powers that be are not the only seeming concern that we have. They may not even be the primary one. Of greater importance is our willingness and faith in being able to adapt and also …not to react. There are other considerations also. A revolution can be a scary thing but so are earthquakes or a powerful storm. They don’t come out of the same dynamic even if the same pervasive governing awareness is behind them both. What I’m trying to say is that you might have too much focus on one consideration and wind up caught unawares by another or even another. This is one reason not to spend your time constantly troubleshooting your life and trying to protect yourself from one thing when that might not even be your primary concern.

This is the single most compelling reason for anyone to put themselves under the protection of a higher power. Some doubt the existence of such a force but when you question them on it, you find their greatest doubt is related to traditional definitions of it and the observable hypocrisy of those who presume to represent it. You can see dark forces at work just by spending a week as a cultural anthropologist in any large urban setting and probably even in a small town; passing in and out of the various places that people congregate. Sometimes they aren’t dark forces but just something you don’t understand or something that affects your present construct of what defines morality but… sometimes it is certainly a product of what (for lack of a better word) can be called dark forces. Yes, it could all just be the outworking of Karma and maybe things only become what they are when we define them as such. After all, ‘Adam’ translates into ‘names of things’.

Regardless, everything in the relative world is counterbalanced by an opposite so there have to be light forces as well. It’s even scientific. We know our eyes operate within a general bandwidth. It’s not a leap of superstition to assume that there are all sorts of things that exist beyond that bandwidth in both directions.

I’ve presented some things to flesh out an environment. We’ll move away from all of that now and back into wherever it was when I started.

One of the readers pointed something out over at Smoking Mirrors yesterday about a woman who worked in a store and was so proud of her son going into the Marines. He said something about how it should be hoped that he doesn’t go to Afghanistan and she replied that he was absolutely going because someone needed to defend our freedoms and yadda yadda. I often forget how many people there are out there who are caught up in various delusions. Even when you’re not simple minded like this woman, there are a lot of ‘oh so clever’ people who are striving to amass fortunes or scheming night and day about all manner of things. They are no more aware than this woman of what the present adjustment of the archetypes portends for them.

Awakening is not optional. It’s mandatory. Those seeking to awaken are in a far better position than those who are not. It’s a matter of degrees. It’s a matter of what it’s going to take.

I mentioned the other day that my bank cards no longer work. I went into town today for something and thought I would check on that. Curiously, the amount you can withdraw has now been cut in half. It still wouldn’t give me any money.

I get the distinct sensation that the next thing they are going to go after is the food so… it wouldn’t hurt to have a lot of beans and rice around. You can live on that and even make a host of different dishes with some various spices and probably cornmeal is a good addition.

We all wonder what it is that would make so many people in power around the world behave in similar fashion. Surely they know that so much of what they are up to is wrong. I’m not talking about the psychopaths. They do it ‘because’ it’s wrong. I’m talking about people who have different degrees of humanity that flares up now and again. Why would so many people cooperate in a system that is out to get them? Like I said, more or less, there’s a dark side and a bright side; both extensions of the same thing but different. In order for them to secure their positions and to prosper in what they do they had to make an arrangement with the dark side so… whatever they do… that ancient intelligence is there and it justifies (inside their minds) whatever they do as the necessary end. Whatever they are thinking, it is thinking with them and it finds whatever is needed to make the irrational seem rational. They are under a spell. There’s a purpose to all of this. The powers that think they are in charge are not in charge. It’s not really us against them. In every case it is us against ourselves and once you have sorted that… there is no them. There are just a lot of bewildered people who don’t know what they are doing but think they do.

Now, I can either look out for myself and my loved ones or I can let the one looking out for everything look out for me too. This doesn’t mean being stupid. I will take some reasonable steps because I’m bring informed to do so but that will all happen as it happens. What I am not going to do is panic or become insecure because that is not necessary for me. It might be necessary for some because it might be tied into waking up. Think of it like a nightmare that is responsible for making you sit up in bed.

I’m not saying anything directly here. I’ve tried to paint a partial graphic for which everyone else can fill in what applies to them. Though our ultimate destiny is the same, our relative destinies of the moment are as different as our locations …but we can all be served by the same higher mind if we will permit that. I’ve mentioned, ‘Nipper, the RCA Dog’ before. There’s an old commercial where a dog is sitting by a Victrola with its ear cocked to the speaker and the caption reads, “His master’s voice.”
