One Day, Every One of us will be Bathed in the Light of the Ineffable.

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

Just because you can't see it doesn't mean it isn't there and just because you can doesn't mean it is.

At the risk of being subjective here, instead of introspective, which sometimes get's mistaken for it, much as one might mistake the musings of Proust as navel gazing, when he was just doing what Proust did or he would not have been Proust, I will take that risk, given circumstances that have been ongoing for a bit. At one point I was linked at a number of major alternative news gathering sites and that went on for some years, with seldom a problem and during that period I was a great deal more, direct and even bombastic than I have ever been in recent times. If anything, I've scaled back some of the thunder and I have certainly modified my behavior in the comments section. Originally, I agreed with myself, to respond in kind so as to negate any possibility that I would be taken for someone, or something that I am not. I doubt that many readers know how important this is for me because, regardless of what I have elucidated in these postings, there are a myriad of experiences that have never found their way on these pages and given what generally unreported things The Man on the Beach told me and given some of the unreported experiences I have had with others, over the course of time, it is critical that I am crystal clear about certain things. Maybe I overdid it here and there; that is the nature of compensation, or what might be more correctly called, 'overcompensation', (grin).

I have not always possessed a completely objective state of mind and that might still be the case. This means that sometimes I mistake events and trends as something other than what they really are. This is only in the short term, because I do have 20-20 hindsight. However, it does make for errors in judgment where I mistake what I think is happening for what is really happening.

The sites I was linked on are main street, Las Vegas, neon advertising portals. That they are after financial compensation can be reflexively presumed. Besides this, there is often a public crying out for funds. I've done the math on the advertising revenue, vis a vis their daily traffic and with the assistance of certain software and search engine tactics and it's pretty clear to me that these webmasters are living at a level far above anything I know and that is mostly because I have NO paid advertising. I have no paid advertising because I do not want to have to 'grow to depend' on anyone who might at any point object to my saying certain things. I'm not a materialist. In some ways, these webmasters are not much different from those they presume to expose and criticize because they are just looking to do well like all the rest of them. They found a tactic and a platform that let's them present themselves as being on the right side of history but when it comes to bottom line survival issues they don't differ that much from their targets and because of their vulnerability to a drive for personal gain from what they do, their potential to become like those they despise is quite great, given states of necessity they might be placed in and the desire for an ever better and better life.

I was decent to these people and defensive of them, even at the cost of my reputation in the minds of those who don't like them. I never once received any appreciation or acknowledgment of this but I'm not looking for accolades. Regardless of what some might think, I really do want to do the right thing. I may not always be right about what I think that is but I try.

People have said negative things to me about these webmasters now and again. They have called into question my integrity for simply being linked on their sites. These sites link hundreds of articles so... I'm guessing none of us have any integrity according to these anonymous critics. Even today there are people who insist I am a Mason, which I am not nor never have been. They say I am somehow in the employ of the Catholic Church because I do not criticize them enough or recognize that they are behind everything. In my opinion, based on my studies and intuitive gifts (should I actually possess any), I believe the prince of darkness is behind it all and his first line of manifest control is the bankers. Everyone else is secondary or ancillary. This is just what I have found, over and over and over again and what I see in action every day. I do not doubt that there is a multicultural population of offenders of every hue and stripe. I also believe there is a pecking order and that you, 'follow the money'. In any case, I write what I am inspired to write and that's how it goes. As I have so often said, “Take what is useful and leave the rest.” Regardless... all of my illustrations of the manifest realm are simply incidental color commentary, whose purpose is to sinuously and sometimes circuitously find its way to some exposition on the ineffable. That's the whole point and purpose of everything that happens here. I don't care one way or another what opinions some tiny minority may hold about me, that's how it is and it is demonstrated in a daily consistency that doesn't change. It might wobble on occasion but there is a gyroscope in it.

Speaking of circuitousness, let's cut to the chase while there is still space to chase it on; I discovered that a webmaster who had hosted my work for some time had ceased to put me in the daily headlines BUT... I still had my box section and my book was still being shown in the horizontal Rolodex up top of the page. I didn't know about any of this because I seldom paid attention to that site. I just sent in my work and went on to the next thing. It was a reader that alerted me to it. So I began to inquire of the man who was involved in transferring my work to the site. Not only he but every other person I knew from that site refused to respond in any way. If there were, or had been any kind of reason given for this happening, I would be fine with it; life changes and we must adapt. I was expunged from the site completely once I began my inquiries.

You might be wondering, “hasn't he already said some of these same things?” Yes, I have but much has happened since then.

The other major linking site stopped posting my work shortly after I went public about the Rense affair. When I inquired, this time, I got a response. I was told that my work had become too subjective and- of course- my mention of the divine in my postings was anathema to a confirmed and committed atheist. My postings were often rejected, should any mention of the ineffable come about. I was okay with this because I have no problem with people holding certain perspectives that differ from my own. The spiritual evolution of any personality can take a long, long time, depending on the direction they are headed in. I thought it ironic that this atheist, like 99%, objects most virulently, not to the idea of an overseeing creator, but to the vagaries and vices of organized religion. A subtle mind would easily pick up on the differentiation but for some reason, even seemingly intelligent people, find themselves incapable of distinguishing between the two. What makes this even more strange is that they have no problem rejecting the idea of things beyond the reach of their understanding. Put simply, these people reject god because they want to play god and any competition to that is cast off out of hand. If you are going to be god then there can be no gods before you; just like with the real thing. They have decided that they are Invictus. They believe, “I am the master of my fate. I am the captain of my soul.” At a certain level and having reached the requisite awareness, this can turn out to be true, after a fashion. It is not true as concerns the ego and its mechanisms of analysis and judgment.

Some time ago I pointed out to the reader that there were individuals in the comments section who were not who they made themselves appear to be. Recently I have heard from different commentators that they have been experiencing bullying tactics from certain long term residents here. They felt I should take a stronger hand in the matter. Not long ago a poster who had been around for some time and who is a bit of a curmudgeon, started to go off on a more regular basis, employing expletives and profanity... generally a sort of, “fuck you!” reaction to anyone who disagreed with him, while at the same time engaging in a passive aggressive manner of cultivating the support of some and unleashing on others. I initially told him he was being over the top and sought to influence him to be less abrasive. He kept at it and finally I informed him that this particular kind of behavior was unacceptable. He unloaded on me in particularly nasty way, as if all of our time together here meant nothing at all. I found that surprising. I didn't print the particular comment because I didn't want to be part of starting a negative back and forth. He hasn't come back around. Maybe he thinks he's banned. He's not.

I bump around one or two comments a month. Sometimes I do it to protect the person posting it, whom I believe would later regret saying it. Other times it is because it is an anonymous hit piece that serves no purpose other than an intent to injure or slander me. One of the reasons I seek to be more equanimitous (yeah, I know it is not an actual word but I'm using it.) these days is to possibly cut back on people offended by my previously direct manner. We are in search of a kinder, gentler visible. This won't dissuade the viper contingent but maybe it will militate generally .across the board. I do not intend to stay fixed in a pattern, unless it is the pattern of a relentless search for the ineffable.

What is the central locus of this whole affair here, today? It is to point out that there is a war on and it is being waged against those who seek to publicize what is true, as opposed to the shitstorm of lies that surround us on all side. In respect of that, some people are finding it near impossible to comment and these sites are being blocked in many areas.

Yes... for the period of a posting or two we are more subjective than some might like. We don't just discuss contemporary conditions and current events to the exclusion of hidden and less visible causes and agendas, or eschew anecdotal examples. We seek, in our poor fashion, to illustrate subjects that have never been easy to articulate. We recognize that we are limited. We recognize that we have shortcomings that need to be overcome. We recognize that we know little when our knowledge is matched up with the cosmic intelligence. We can only do our best and we will make mistakes. We will make mistakes in the precise truth of what is and what is not because we don't know everything and we will make mistakes in our interactions with others because we were not as patient or understanding as we might have been. All I can say is that we are better than we were and that each day we strive to be more so. Of course we will have setbacks but we will step forward again and again until we walk through that timeless portal into the living and eternal light and our ability and possibility of doing this is not dependent of the permissions of anyone here who might object. It depends on the will of the ineffable... and only on the ineffable... alone.

Yes, we have suffered certain dramatic hits in our exposure but strangely, our daily numbers are not that different from what they were before these things happened. I find this hard to understand but it is what it says on the stat page. Although Visible Orgami was the first blog, it receives less traffic than the others and was overtaken in visitor count a long time ago. This speaks to the public's interest in the seen over the unseen.

Sometime in the next couple of weeks, Smoking Mirrors will pass a count of seven million visitors. We'll manage. Only the ineffable has the final say on the particular life of this particular personality and... in truth, this is so for all of us, like it or not. I rest my existence upon the absolute and certain truth of the existence of an ineffable. Believe what you will and may it go well for you. I do wish this for you. I pray it goes well for all of us, though I suspect it will not. However, in the long term, all of us will find the light. The power and will of the ineffable cannot be denied and even if I am never linked anywhere again, I will not cease in talking about the ineffable. Nothing else holds any primary importance for me.

Last Sunday's radio broadcast (about the ineffable) is still up there somewhere.
