Quick shout out!

Whaddup amigos?!

Hope all’s well witchya in this epic time of transition and in the words of Bono, “Don’t let the bastards get you down!”

Been doing some symmetry breaking up in the mountains with a wise owl and apologize for breaking our routine and leaving you hanging lately. Somewhere I heard however, that only through a profoundly notorious absence of words can one hope to gain an understanding of them and do look forward to sharing any insights that may have been unearthed at some point.

I’ll leave you with these mellow live vibes as a peace offering while you ponder the following and promise we’ll return to the Sunday vibes once this alchemical experience gets processed.

Thought for the day – Is the inkpot aware that Goneril, Regan, and Cordelia lay sleeping within, the subtle stroke of a goose feather all the stimulation necessary to educe the maidens from their slumber? This is what a model extolling the primacy of Mind would imply.

And if you’ve already gone to sit with Heimdallr then you can think on this one – “Ass, gas, or grass – nobody rides for free!”

One love,

P.S. Been on a classic rock kick as of late.

Sunday Matinee: The Nature of the Mind Part 1

Whaddup you old rogues?!

I’ve got a real banger for you today. This is the first of a four part discourse between David Bohm, Jiddu Krishnamurti, John Hidley and Rupert Sheldrake.   A rather eclectic dialogue, the topics addressed include abstract considerations like the self, religion, infirmity of the mind and the etiology of problems confronting the world of men. I must warn you though, it’s pretty vivid and intense amigos so prepare to have your perspectives challenged.  With these heavyweights on the case however, I respectfully request radio silence.  Today is training of will with the Jedi High Council. Enjoy!

Sunday Matinee: Kundalini – Reflections of the Inner Light

One’s-Self I sing, a simple separate person,

Yet utter the word Democratic, the word En-Masse.

Of physiology from top to toe I sing,

Not physiognomy alone nor brain alone is worthy for the Muse, I say the Form complete is worthier far,

The Female equally with the Male I sing.

Of Life immense in passion, pulse, and power,

Cheerful, for freest action form’d under the laws divine,

The Modern Man I sing.

—Walt Whitman

Various schools of ancient philosophy and insight were centered around unlocking the vast mysteries residing within the heavenly temple of the human body. Through gaining an understanding of himself, man sought to interpenetrate the mysteries underlying the music of the spheres. Over the centuries, Eastern philosophies have probed these mysteries at great depth and seem to share a common recognition of a super sensory energy system that resides within the human body.  The beauty of modernity however, lies in our ability to filter these ancient philosophies through the lens of inquiry to pierce through the mendacity that inevitably accrues with the passage of time.

I think this is a well done presentation introducing the pre-Vedic concept of Kundalini to the Western mind.  Kundalini represents the all-powerful cosmic creative energy that unifies both the physical and spiritual aspects of our existence and can be described as a mystical experience of self-realization.  I’m not in a position to speak with authority on this subject amigos, but instead share this to open further avenues of exploration for the curious among you. Enjoy!

Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you. Luke 17:21

Sunday Matinee: The Taoist Way with Alan Watts

Butchers, Bakers, Candlestick Makers, and my old rogues,

I have learned much in my life from the teachings of Alan Watts. I thought I’d share a wonderful lecture he did on the Taoist way for your enjoyment today. The philosophy of the Tao is a fundamental aspect of my own reality tunnel and it lends itself well to an even-keeled temperament. This does not mean that the Universe can’t pitch a curve ball every now and again that knocks your freakin’ socks off.  ;)

But I digress. Is Taoism truth you ask? How about some good ole’ Gibran wisdom -The bird of truth does indeed unfurl its wings in Taoist philosophy but it still does not take flight. It has served me as a masterful methodology to approaching life however and also, to processing data received from self-observation.

A life of higher egoic reflectivity eventually reorients the soul to its Divine origins. Walking this path of relentless self observation also leads to a life of teaching by example versus exposition of precept. The little dilemma that arises however is that only by suffering through exposition of precept does one develop the skillset necessary to perform relentless self observation. Lol  Go figure!

Would you expect any less in a universe where the increasing complexity of life dances with the 2nd law of thermodynamics? But enough rambling from me, I’ll let the venerable Mr. Watts do the exposition today. Enjoy amigos!

One love,

HJ

P.S. 2nd Law of Thermodynamics just states that the entropy of any system approaches positive infinity or disorder is always increasing. Seems to be contrary to the move towards more organization that drives evolution.

Temple of the Goddess

Hujambo Jedi!

Been enjoying a wonderful reprieve from the web lately so no fulminations this fine Friday friends. Just felt like sharing something fabulous with you folks. With the ubiquitous chaotic frenzy confronting the humans, I thought an infusion of beauty may create some positive vibes and ripple out. Chaos theory is on my side it seems.  Maybe, just maybe, this butterfly can create a hurricane of positivity.  Check out these vibes:

Can you hear the priest?
He’s tryin’ to keep his goddess pleased
Love’s shining eternally
Love will make you feel so free

Come, come it’s okay
For satisfaction you must pray
The flame of passion ain’t no bluff
It’s shinning in the temple of love

Come to the temple of love
And together we’ll pray
To the heaven’s above

Come to the temple of love

She sure is beautiful compadres.

Ye stewards, seek the sublime that lies beyond everyday cognition. The mind is the great slayer of the real as the wise ones say.

If I tried to tell you that stars lie hidden in your soul would you believe me?  Or would I get something like, “H3nry you should really turn off the Northern Lights before you write.”  Okay, you don’t have to believe anything, but when you do realize the inner light amigos, remember I tried to give you a heads up.

Nothing will ever look the same once you listen to the whispers of the soul.  Discard the desire for details of the declination from the Ineffable to the flesh cage and learn to dance.  Schrödingers’ equations and Sabbath observation are just alternate mappings of the same reality and these are not necessarily mutually exclusive.  Or alternatively, you could say that the universe has a design that includes physicists. Lol

Every now and again the Mother Goddess smiles and presents you with a glimpse of something so incredibly beautiful, the soul stirs. It could be a dance, or a dancer ;), a butterfly in flight, a tiger tiger burning bright, or even heaven in a wild flower.  It’s at these moments of exquisiteness that one’s gaze becomes naught fixed elsewhere.  The first premise driving the transcendental machine becomes vaguely discernible since you’re in the presence of that which is Good, Beautiful, and True. The Dancer dances and you simply sit with bated breath in bewilderment. The hue of reality changes so to speak.

Do you really think that this is worth destroying so men who have can accumulate more? A wise owl would probably disagree with this model.  Seek beauty, goodness and truth amigos and the temple of love opens its doors to you. #justsayin

One love,

HJ

Sunday Matinee: Reflections on Oneness with Peter Russell

Ropes over the abyss,

I thought I’d give my dawgz a real mad izm sparker today.  I think it’s time for an update of our operational definitions. The overman’s concept of infinite is no longer locked in a dialectic with an antithetical rebel for the soul of mankind. Coincidencia oppositorum – it’s time to reconcile the duality amigos. I shared a lecture of Russell’s some time back. If your itchin to spend one of the nine, click here. You know what they say about curiosity folks.  But hey, rockin the old reality tunnel is never a bad thing. Enjoy!

It is a secret which every intellectual man quickly learns, that, beyond the energy of his possessed and conscious intellect, he is capable of a new energy (as of an intellect doubled on itself), by abandonment to the nature of things; that, beside his privacy of power as an individual man, there is a great public power, on which he can draw, by unlocking, at all risks, his human doors, and suffering the ethereal tides to roll and circulate through him: then is he caught up into the life of the Universe, his speech is thunder, his thought is law, and his words are universally intelligible as the plants and animals.

– Ralph Waldo Emerson

Secular Divinity of Sound

Ye who have seen beyond the walls of the cave,

A captivating piece of music recently crossed my path and resonated on a level that eluded linguistic trappings.  Just had to share this soothing instrumental with my homeys.  In homage to Holmes, I also did some reconnaissance and the following translation turned up. Turns out that this is actually a devotional piece written in the 15th Century by Narsinh Mehta.  The word “Vaishnav” is translated as a devotee of Vishnu.  For those who may be uncomfortable with assigning intelligence to the infinite and eternal energy from which all things proceed, replace “Vaishnav” with “True Humanist” and voila, any perturbations experienced in the mind of a 3D dweller is rather easily resolved. I hope you enjoy the piece.

Vaishnav Jan

One who is a Vaishnav (or True Humanist)

Knows the pain of others

Does good to others

Without letting pride enter his mind.

 

A Vaishnav (True Humanist), Tolerates and praises the entire world.

Does not speak ill of others

Keeps his promises, actions and thoughts pure

Your mother is blessed indeed.

 

A Vaishnav (True Humanist) sees everything equally, rejects greed and avarice

Respects women as he respects his own mother

Though his tongue may tire he will utter no untruth

Never touches the property of others.

 

A Vaishnav (True Humanist) does not succumb to worldly attachments

He has renounced lust of all types and anger

The poet Narsi will like to see such a person by whose virtue,

The entire family gets salvation.
