Sailing on the Prevailing Wind of the Temporary.

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

May your noses always be cold and wet. Ruf!

Ah... to be more like my dog. The fidelity and unconditional love shames and inspires me every day; probably why he’s there. I’m beginning to think everything is where it is for a ‘very good reason’. Oh... I’ve always thought that but it didn't make it to the visceral until recently. You can believe it’s all there for a reason, or you can believe there is neither rhyme nor reason to any of it. Somehow... the latter is decidedly unattractive. Besides... when I look at the symmetry and beauty of Nature and the wider universe; what I see is an inexplicable harmony among diverse interactives. Now... how one explains that, to themselves and others is where the controversy comes in and... I suspect the reason for that is that no one really knows and everyone either suspects that or has a visceral awareness of it. I like what Lao Tzu said;

AND this;

How can you improve on that? You can’t. Probably one of the reasons he is not more universally followed is he provides no room for argument. You can’t argue with him except to expose yourself as a fool. The other thing is that there’s no effective religion that represents it. Sure you have the so called ‘Taoism’ but... that’s kind of like fries with your burger. You will be getting something to eat but the centerpiece of the meal is the burger and that you are going to have to go look for.

Today I was at the dentist; part of the process of my new teeth. I have to take care of this before I migrate because obviously... looking at the present state of my finances, something like this would be out of the question in the USA. When I am at the doctors (rarely) or a dentist, I encounter a perspective on the world that I don’t usually get; the same way I learn things from the commercials on NFL Network. First the medical offices; they got copies of Vogue and Cover and that sort of glamour garbage. I’ve been amazed to ponder the prices women (the ones with money) spend on clothing and shoes. You got 2,000 and up for shoes designed by men who hate women. You got jeans and nothing blouses for 4 and 600 and up. Everyone is making perfume. Jimmy Choo is making perfume now. I wonder if it incorporates the smell of his shoes? I look at the Heroin dead model’s eyes and the ridiculous poses which make the individual nothing more than a commodity AND they know this AND they’re okay with this, unless you get to the Jennifer Lawrence stage where you hear, “I’ll do anything for my career, it comes first;” followed by, “no one has the right to look at naked pictures of me. They should be ashamed of themselves yadda yadda.”

This reminds me of an old joke where a guy goes up to an attractive woman in a bar and asks her, “Would you go to bed with me for a million dollars?” She replies, “Yes, I would.” Then he says, “Well then, would you sleep with me for a hundred dollars?” She replies, “Of course not! What do you think I am?” He answers, “We've already established that, now we are only haggling over the price.”

I don’t know if it is the case on the regular networks in the USA but on NFL Network, it is pork and bacon central. Now they are selling some cheap pans that allow you to wrap all kinds of things in bacon; wrap whatever in bacon and wrap bacon around whatever from the inside too. I use my customary logic on this sort of thing and thereby I deduce that, if you are what you eat, it serves the imperatives of materialism for people to eat as much pork as possible.

What has any of this to do with Taoism, Nature, the Universe and my dog? There is an essential harmony to existence that exists when one is harmonious with their essential nature. The world then, reflexively, adjusts to that. When you are out of harmony with your essential nature, your perceptions of what is real and what is valuable and what is not become hopelessly out of sync with the natural order. When you are out of sync with the natural order, you come to an unnatural end and the degree of suffering you experience is massively enhanced. It may not seem so at times but... it WILL catch up with you. The truth of this is concealed from the lumpen proles. They are not to know that the rich and powerful are just as helpless as they. This keeps everyone driven.

Let’s look at that term, ‘driven’. All of us have been on the highways and encountered those individuals who are maniacally obsessed with getting somewhere so that they can hurry up and wait. I always wonder if it’s some kind of symbolic ass rape phenomena going on in the subconscious the way they like to tailgate and push. Well... thing is, they’re driven. They are under the spell and under the control of a force that drives one toward all manner of eventual calamity. Conversely... if ‘you’ are driving, you are in command. How can you be in command if there is any urgency about your movements? How could there be a need for urgency if you are operational within the Tao of your true nature? So... I have learned not to get angry at these fools but to be grateful that I do not share their condition. I am constantly reminded; ‘there but for fortune goes I.’

Everywhere you see people seeking to fit in with what is contrary to their best interests because it is the prevailing wind of the Temporary. They are trying to fit in the way cattle respond to being herded and they are being herded and for what amounts to the same end result, more or less. If one could see this, one would not do this, so... regardless of how one views scripture, it’s a case of the blind leading the blind with the predictable result.

Sure, it can get cold and lonely on The Lonesome Highway but there are unexpected perks that go down when one gets past the probationary period. One comes to find that the highway is alive and conscious. That’s a big thing, oh yeah!
