real news

The Fool’s Reality News Network presents:

Commentary on what is really going on – for the discriminating mind.

a) we are all screwed!

b) we are all trapped in the Now, and no “now” is exactly the same as any other persons’ “now”

c) we are cursed to feel separate and alone, self-inescapable …

d) we find this intolerable, and then seek where is my place, where do I feel comfortable

e) sometimes we partner, lovers, children, parents, co-workers, strangers on a bus ….

f) always we learn, pinballs in an infinite arcade of mystery …

TV News is mostly stories of someone else’s karma/drama … the science of publicity, considers “optics” crucial – how something looks, as against how it actually is …

publicity whores serve anything but the truth, … well, not quite, since there is a lot of money and perhaps prestige being a “news-anchor” … we should not be surprised as the mighty fall to the core struggle, … why do men and women exist?

Matter and anti-matter?

Electrical and Magnetic currents in fields of eros and thantos … burgeoning life and the unknowns of the gate of death …

There is a narrative being created where crises arise and then abides for a time … the Holy Mother’s Brooms sweep an unsettling upon the world … Weather belongs to the Gods&Goddesses … Christ brings a sword, not peace; while the Hopi Prophecy names our time The Day of Purification.

After theses “storms”, in the first moments of space to breathe – toward which governments have little to contribute – peoples hearts awaken, and neighbors come from near and far to succor the survivors, and millions of Clara Barton souls – souls of empathy act, in spite of the farce in Washington D.C. and Wall Street.

I need a job. Better yet, work.

I need a job. Better yet, work. I don’t need money. Divine Providence (Mother Earth) has led me to a remarkably magical retirement. No savings, just Social Security, and a woman … I didn’t know existed.

Still, I’ve now lasted eleven sevens of years, and in looking back I’ve had a curious education. The first words on my e-business card are: “a white-privileged, Christian, son of Montana, American citizen, Shaman … ” … more follows …

I also have law degree, speak to trees and squirrels, while lately I’ve taken up a closer observation of the songs of clouds …

It is a scientific fact that the Planet Earth is a living Cosmic Being. Her consciousness links All Our Relations into a single web of life, … and the mystery of death …

Over hundred years ago, Rudolf Steiner entered into a stream of modern thought that is well named: the counter-Copernican Revolution.

The Copernican Revolution produced a science only of matter, of things and numbers … describing a world empty of any meaning but that which is reached by cold thought alone. No room there for spirit at all.

Turns out spirit is still there, and with Steiner’s works on the problem of scientific knowledge as inspiration, a number of individuals have produced valid scientific treatises on the spiritual nature of physics, chemistry, botany, geology, social science, medicine, farming, astronomy, geometry, and even philosophy as well as religion & art.

A done deed. Best way to help this remembering that the Mother Earth we want to help is just waiting for us to call Her, on the phones of the elements. Beings are everywhere. Still, you want to connect, its up to you and the Rites of your daily life.

Meanwhile, for the scientific geeks, there are some books at the following link. Own them, all of them, as soon as possible. Money a problem? Form a group, for these books are wonderful for the engendering of lively conversations.

Shaman’s Law Firm (contact me if you need help understanding any of these books).

I die more everyday …

I die more everyday. I used to think life was about living, but in some sense it is also about dying.

We tend to avoid pain, and to acknowledge the little murders that occur each day is not an experience of pleasure.

Yes, murders.

Mostly it happens when I watch News. This sense of death and dying. Not just the death of truth and justice, but of trust and hope.

Every damn day.

I sleep at night, with some help from pills, and start my day with a ganja goddesses celebration, but in the evening, the News. Torture for the well informed and educated, whatever channel we watch.

Trump is the arch-distraction, while the Oligarchy uses the intelligence-establishment to run psychological operations against the American people, out of the Pentagon.

Included is millions spent to make the military look good, and to urge our patriotism and a kind of slavish asleep consent that believes the big decisions benefit ordinary Americans. The big decisions do not.

The Oligarchy needs consumers of its products, workers for its farms and factories, and bodies for their wars.

Last night I watched CBS News give space to a shill for the Deep State, who as part of a report on the latest three dead in the 17 year old war in Afghanistan, explained that he had just been there, and we’re doing great fighting not just the Taliban, but ISIS and Al-Qaeda are there as well.

That just plain lying, but for purposes of making the war look “right”, best to serve up names of bad guys we should all fear in never ending war on terror.

Anyone actually paying attention knows the latter two hardly exist anymore, much less are a factor in the poppy wars in Afghanistan, which allow a wealth-equalization process to arise (we can’t/don’t dare try to out-spend the Taliban) and no foreign power has ever done anything in that region of the world – ever.

But the Military Industrial Complex needs wars, and strife, and so Trump is okay in his effort to ruin our public life, in the name of values. Values? What are those?

Values shared is how Trump voters justify their complete lack of actual patriotism. Not nationalism, which is what Trump sells, but other-service oriented one-for-all patriotism. The first word in the Constitution is “WE”.

Neither Trump&friends, or the Oligarchy, and certainly not the political parties, actually cares about the WE.

So everyday I live to die some more, as the too rigid ideologies play games, and serve themselves at the expense of others.

So in grief I pray each night, and seek at least a little bit the next day to try to wash away the mud and confusion, for it is a spiritual fact that the NEWS is all show-business, and not a true narrative of the world at all.

the moral aesthetic – the reason the world is full of woe and drama The outer sense world, of wars, crimes, divorces, and other common horrors, is not the reality of our shared Earth Existence. Thoreau remarked that most men lead lives of quiet desperation. The first Noble Truth of the Buddha is; …

this thanksgiving I am grateful for the trump event

For a lot of people the idea of “history” being Art might be a difficult notion to grasp.  All the same, an ancient Greek playwright  would admire the handiwork of the Gods&Goddesses in this  “trump event”.

If anything, the Gods&Goddesses are story tellers.  Science declared Them dead, as did much of  modern culture,  which is a vanity of sorts.  With the right mind-set it is possible to see that They are still around, and taking pleasure at our triumphs, and feeling sorrow at our defeats.

We are Their children after all and remain as confused and prideful as we did in more ancient times.   So full of ourselves.  Do folks not see how arrogant is Natural Science to declare it knows what happened a trillion years ago.  Most people can’t remember what they had for lunch the day before.

Don’t get me started on the religious zealots.  It is always  the end of the world around some or another corner, and the Books they thump are incapable of error, the Divine Mystery apparently having inspired these holy books and then left the field of activity without having another word to say.

Does that make any sense?  Anyone who honestly prays in private knows They are still there, and a Book doesn’t listen as well in any case.

Still, we are continually reaping what we have sown, … and all of us know it.

As to the “trump event”:

Our confusion is rooted in a set of assumptions, that come with this Age of scientific arrogance and religious zealotry.  Both want to pretend spirit is not real, and that neither are the Gods&Goddesses – although for entirely different reasons.

Science wants to keep the Divine Mystery out of their theories and mental inventions.  Why?  Fear of what it really means if Carl Sagan’s “Demon Haunted World” book comes out to be prescient.  Elemental Beings?  Angels?  Science likes its explanations reducible to mathematics.  Easier than learning to look up to a Creator and maybe having to explain why – when we went playing with elemental (atomic) fire, – we broke a hole in reality, and entities not of this world rushed in.

Flying sauces anyone?

As to the superior in all ways religious zealots … can’t live with them, can’t live without them.    The odd situation here is that they don’t listen to their own stories, for all the Gods&Goddesses will punish error whenever and however They wish.  If Katrina is the result of the sins homosexuals ….

What is “trump event” the result of?

The “trump event” is a massive give them enough rope to hang with morality play written for full audience participation, by the Gods&Goddesses Themselves.

Everyone is horrified.  No one if getting what they want or like …. although as the Rolling Stones had it: “you don’t always get what you want, but if you try real hard, you’ll get what you need.”.

Or Christ, if you can handle it: “I come not to bring peace but a sword”.  For details, see this:


– a Children’s Christmas Story for Adults –

by Joel A. Wendt

scenes from the “other” side

Joseph Periwicked the Third, plopped down to rest. As a moderately elder gnome of the Fane of B5, he was a leader, not so much because he led, but because he trusted himself, and did not let new enthusiasms overwhelm his self-care. A good gnome is a healthy gnome was the Way of the Grandmothers.

Let the young be heroes, and leave to the old the best stories to tell. For the old were once young, and survived that oblivious innocence. Might be something was learned in the process of survival.

JP-3, then turned his eye-lamp upon the mind of the dreamer, in the cave. So much chaos, so little discipline. A thunder-like sound floated by, a copse of sylphs in flight, while the dreamer wondered – as always – what to do about the Sending in the human’s dying form of government.

Anyone who wants to be President is certifiably mad just for the ambition and hubris required. What is still beyond most modern human thinking on madness, is itself mad. Madness is just one of the four-escapes open to the suffering. Madness is also a Gate into the Underworld, or Faerie, or the Upsidedown.

Modern science threw out so much hard won wisdom with its denial of the Spirit. Such that the mad go unprepared into Holy Faerie, not knowing that like all the four gates to Faerie, this one too requires surrender. All paths to the Mother require surrender. Ironic all the same, that through the gate of madness lies a very deep and profound sanity, for while the Father&Son give us life becoming light, the Mother blesses all order with just the right spice of wild.

Take a look at our world, Could there be any greater proof of the tide of humanity rushing all the gates of heaven&earth – all at the same time.

Migrants storm the Bastille of America’s fears. The Mother burns California to ashes, and makes sure no amount of money means one is free of being touched with Her Great Brooms of Change. Everywhere an unsettling of the what-was, …

This is what it looks like when a Civilization lets go its roots, and through chaos seeks rebirth. In Faerie, especially this Winter, there will be celebration, for throughout the Universe She thunders loudly: Just be yourself, and if you fall I will always catch you.

a letter to the folks at the upcoming Natural Science Section meeting in Eastern New York

Spiritual Research on America

Dear Friends of Rudolf Steiner,

On the occasion of the Natural Science Section’s meeting in Spring Valley, where the questions related to the problem of knowledge are being more openly discussed, I wish to add an additional perspective, from – shall we say – the point of view of those who Steiner described as the Platonists, who were to gather with Aristotelians at the turn of the Century.

America is not Europe, nor is the American Soul like the soul of Central Europeans. The following material is distinctly of the American Spirit, and yet little known in anthroposophical circles, either here or elsewhere.  Dire straights if this ignorance is alllowed to continue.

For example, concerning the problem of knowledge, a distinctive American Way of practicing the New Mystery of Thinking is outlined in this book: Sacramental Thinking, links to which are part of the material collected on this data stick. [  ]

The gathering Steiner refereed to as the “Culmination” happened. I was there. A earlier report of mine on the results of that is here: [ ], also included on this data stick.

As a – hopefully – succinct preview of this work, I recently wrote a letter to both John Bloom and John Beck. Below is that letter and their replies:


Pagan (Platonist) Anthroposophy

Owen Barfield, in his seminal “Speaker’s Meaning”, proves through language studies that all the oldest religions only named reality, given that languages in their youth are purely literal.

One implication of this fact is that the most primitive religions – the earth-religions – were correct in every detail, although as various as are clusters of stars in the heavens, given the significance of geographical regions&peoples decorating the whole surface of the Earth. Differentiation is essential.

The Platonists to which Rudolf Steiner referred, in his prediction about the Culmination Event, were pagans. Which really only means that they worshiped/adored/cherished Everything, knowing the Totality of this Cornucopia comes from the Mother.

From the American Platonist Stephen Clarke’s: Rudolf Steiner’s “Mexican Mysteries” Re-Imagined … Introduction, 2017 [ ]

“Thus, successive precipitations of Old Saturn, Old Sun, Old Moon and Earth evolutions (simply an alternate vocabulary for the traditional kabbalistic worlds of Emanation, Creation, Formation & Existence as depicted in shorthand in Genesis) can be seen as having their parallel “tree-rings” in the building up of successive inner-earth layers corresponding to Saturn, Sun, Moon, and, finally, the surface world of Nature, all inhabited at their core and in every particle by divinity in its immanent maternal aspect.”

However, … in Central Europe, with its long history of immature Christianity and the woeful dualism of good&evil, Steiner was constrained – again in harmony with the variety of peoples and geographical/ethereal regions out of which the Earth surface is composed. He – Steiner – was serious medicine for the culture that birthed scientific materialism – all is matter, there is no spirit – a medicine that needs to be precise and focused … no room for mystical and magical operations.

Still Steiner managed to hide in plain sight, the Seven Earth Mysteries, sprinkled with fairy dust, and slyly described as abstract “forces”, in a situation that in other contexts he pointed out that there are no abstract (ethereal formative) forces, only Beings and their collective Will.

[What happens if you unite in the soul generalized versions of the wisdoms of the Sections as a single whole? All were rooted in accompanying magical acts done by Steiner – not too hidden from view, yet not really noticed.]

Even in the beginning the language used was an open obvious evocation: Lucifer Gnosis. The Foundation Stone, that was laid in the Earth, begins with an open air magical ceremony, acknowledging the Spirits of the Four Directions, just as is still done today in the Pipe Ceremony of the Lakota Sioux.

By connecting to Freemasonry Steiner tried to keep something alive, among those Lodges who acknowledge the still real role of Rite. Ultimately he then helped generate a new priesthood and ritual work in the Christian Community, at the request of the local folk with pastoral responsibilities.

He spoke of Anthroposophia – a female emphasis, and of the dangers that would befall the Anthroposophical Society were the members to lose sight of the essence – a Way of Seeing Anthroposophy as the Mother from which all else, including spiritual science, was being born.

When we are in a position to assimilate anthroposophical knowledge not only through reading and listening, but when we are more and more able to experience the content of anthroposophy in our heart, in our feelings, then it is as if living, cosmic beings enter our souls. Then, anthroposophy will appear to us increasingly as a living being. And we will become aware that something is knocking at the threshold of our heart saying, ‘Let me in, because I am you yourself; I am your true nature, your very humanity.”

or …

In Anthroposophy it is the Truth that matters. In the Anthroposophical Society it is the Life that matters.”

In what sense are today’s earth-religions true brothers&sisters of Anthroposophy? While their sciences are visionary/mystical, and magically evocative, they are still “sciences” as anyone knows who studies those ancient teachings outside a Steiner-only wisdom.

The already immortal Beings are the same, only the names vary. All the same, it is humanity that is the leading edge of change. Our hungers, whether vain or exulted, rule our destinies.

Owen Barfield points out in his “Saving the Appearances: a study in Idolatry”, that language reveals the human being becoming the leading edge of the incarnation of the Logos into&through earth-reality, most notably when around 250 to 300 years ago, the word “self-consciousness” first appears in English.

Steiner, necessarily originally constrained, needs to be freed. The baleful dichotomy of evil&good needs to be laid to rest. This is the mission of the Platonists, which are being born from the Aristotelians. The Culmination Event is ongoing … the whole world is pregnant with it, including the Anthroposophical Society, which mostly needs to get occasionally intoxicated and dance much more frequently.

Why? Ahriman so loves rules and procedures over daring and adventures. Joy and/or humor is not in his repertoire.

The logical problem is this: There is the either/or idea(1) of “evil”, and another idea(2) of “good”, … and then there is the meta(above)physical idea(3) of both/and or: = “good&evil” – qualities that cannot be separated out from each other, their opposition only apparent – an “appearance” as it were.

Heaven&Earth ~!~ Flute&Drum ~!~ Breath&Blood. the Emerald Tablet:

“The above from the below, and the below from the above – the work of the miracle of the One. And things have been from this primal substance through a single act. How wonderful is this work! It is the main (principle) of the world and is its maintainer. Its father is the sun and its mother the moon; …“

In the Americas, the earth-religions know the secrets of the will. Fire and Water cannot be separated. The path to the Mother involves surrendering to the own dark&wild. Occasionally dancing intoxicated is a necessary antidote to a paralyzed from too much reading mind and soul, afraid to physically express joyous freedom of personal essence.

Feelings move us. Feelings see/know.

For millennia folks slowly left the more wild regions of the earth, slowly coagulated more and more in cities, billions now crowded together – yet there&surviving. Meanwhile Western Civilization is dissolving into a yet to be created&new – a social organism of wide variations, while the no longer viable nation states slide to their inevitable defeat, through the machinations of the multi-national heartless corporate cultures.

The political wars, especially in the Americas, very much need to be infused from the Earth-ground upward, with spiritual knowledge. Women, carrying the Mother&Friends are already on the march. Changes surge from within, and youth have such glorious forces, if we can get them to attend to the wisdom acquired over the years from their grandmothers.

Still, nothing stops the music. Nothing impedes free culture expression, which is always defiant of excessive form. At the glorious mixture of the social commons travelers wander, some forced (parents fleeing with children), others doing good in loco perentis. Many carry Anthroposophy (conscious and instinctive) in their hearts, yet always dangers … for Anthroposophy itself is dissolving away from its: the best Way is the highest Road, becoming Americanized into: the Way that Works will have to do, no time for the will to be any longer asleep, hardly dreaming.

Anthroposophists need to recognize that as the new pagan/mother mysteries are coming forth, our shared physical life is getting harsher, water and food more scarce, … so that what Steiner gave needs to wash the feet of the local latent ancient culture. Steiner didn’t know those Other Cultures, as well as his own, which leaves to true scientists of the spirit the task to investigate all the ancient truths.

Everyone will recognize in their own local great myths, the roots that are modernized&science-touched in bio-dynamics, Waldorf education, anthroposophical medicine, … in all of the newly refreshed sciences&arts&letters, …

… but Europe must no longer engage in any form of spiritual/cultural imperialism&colonization. Goethe is interesting, but Everywhere Else in the world there are different cultural giants, and as we know, the Divine Mystery wastes nothing.

Anthroposophy – the truth – arises from the individual, through family, and then into community, because that is where/how the future always emerges – out of individuals. To live on the Earth, of wondrous variations of culture&language, is to discover that each ancient Way to the Mother remains valid.

That Place, where any particular People live, that’s were the deepest memories are of the ancient ones, who like the rose are still themselves, whatever names we sell/buy/preach … this is the secret of the return of the Moon. Echo-Born borne from seeds deep in the mysteries of the earth and of the will.

Do you want to know what Anthroposophy is, … answering that question means to seek to know what Others most need. Anthroposophy can’t be carried in a bucket of books, only in the warmed perceptive evocations of a heart. Magic is real. We use it everyday, although tending to mislabel its arts.

The Moon is Returning Now, for those with eyes to see, and ears to hear: Medicine Woman is Here [ ]


Replies of John Beck (Director of Communications of the Anthroposophical Society in America), and John Bloom (current General Secretary of the Anthroposophical Society in America).

Hey, Joel,
Good to hear from you. Very interesting thoughts and observations.
And you know, it is very important that you are engaging and carrying these thoughts, along with a few other people. Why do I say that?
What gets missed (I’ve done it many times myself) is that this Anthroposophical Society is a tiny thing. We haven’t been able to organize the resources even to meet the more obvious opportunities. Dornach is a substantial center but it is smaller, I would estimate, that the typical community college in the US. There are over 1400 of those. And the ASA is about the size of a regional animal welfare society.
So I think a great many things can only be carried right now as seeds, by passionate individuals like yourself. If we are short in other resources, we are long in people who really dig into things.
I would mention that the AGM last fall in Phoenix was really planted in a space of living Native American culture, a palpable presence. And I met a radiant old man who creates curriculums and was working to interest tribal schools in Waldorf methods. So we have two pages on that in the latest being human. That would begin to be a foundation for recognizing the gifts the ancient cultures can still bring.
Best wishes to you,



Thanks for taking the time to write this and for the depth of thought. The question of where and how anthroposophy stands in the world right now, and how it can be of real service in support of each person’s humanity is at the forefront of my daily work. So I much appreciate the vision that you are holding.
Be well,

John Bloom

the Alien Invasion is Now

The 2018 by-election is near at hand.  For those attuned to deeper songs, there are strong rumbles, and grave riots in the dark-below hidden in many sad hearts.  The invisible storms wanting out are worse than the invisible ones already seen.

Everyone is angry, and scared, and alienated&alone.

For all the dangers, one matter is forgotten, especially by those that claim to know God’s Will.

We’ve been warned to leave vengeance to the Father.  For all the stories in the texts of the Peoples of the Book (the Hebrews, the Christians, and the Muslims) are clear:  It rains on the just and the unjust.

Odd isn’t it, how much it  seems that it is religious leaders who are the true atheists, for the God they assert to speak for does not choose sides. nor are any of us on a path to escape illness and death.  Life ends.  The zealots are certainly in for the biggest surprises in the afterlife, don’t  you think.

For example, 2000 years of Christianity, and still the fundamentalists  & evangelicals run around praying in public, in spite of the simple clarity of this advice:

And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you


Join it.  Throw a party.   Celebrate.   Believe.

She’s got the Whole World in His Hands

a brother, passes

About ten days ago I had a dream of my brother Lou. It was a strong dream, something I often think of as a “sending”. We (he and I) had/were doing something good together. When I left the deeper dreaming of the night, my first thought was to wonder if he had crossed over. I did not worry that … not all dreams say the whole story, but I suppose I expected that if he had died, I would hear about it, so the dream was shelved with a long list of other-dreams, October Dreams we could imagine … Lou introduced me to Ray Bradbury.

Children know fathers. Wives know husbands. Aunts and uncles and cousins – a tree of many fruits, still growing. Only brothers know brothers.

Lou liked fear games, and one time when he had me alone in the basement of the house 3004 on the way to East Bases, he was sitting on my chest, holding the threat of an awl in his hand, a sharp tool for making round holes in leather, … the wrestle overbalanced, something slipping and the awl penetrated at least an inch into my upper arm.

Scared us both … later in 1804 country he taught me chess, and when I was eleven and twelve I started to beat him, once in a great while his hand would be a hurricane rearranging chess pieces all over the rug (we laid on the carpet while we played)

In my teens he took me mountain climbing. I think he was happiest the years he got to work for the Forest Service, who liked his skill set: skier and mountain climber.

My older brother had an amazing friend, who deserves his own book: Howie Clark.

Lou taught me of the love of science, and of the costs of the pursuit of the truth. We lived together in northern California, at the foot of Mt. Shasta. Along with my second wife, and second son. We later lived in the woods of New Hampshire near Wilton, at different years working in the same local factory. When he was broke I’d give him five dollars, and drive him to State Liquor store for some vodka, which he sipped out of tea cup all day – self medication a fine and necessary art – who knows the state of their own consciousness best, but the one living it. I suspect Lou learned this trick from mother Dorothy. She was ours, us brothers three.

In NH we shared the first home computer. My capital, his curiosity, and Adam/Zarta Ivy’s being at one with the machine insights …

Brothers don’t talk to each other about wives and children, except in brief spurts of sympathetic noises. Guys talk #metoo all the time, just a different subject of can’t live with them, can’t live without them. Misery Loves Company.

Families and Children a strange school. Lou sent me a capsule of LSD the Christmas of my senior year in law school in Missoula. It came with two hand written pages of instructions for having “trip sitters”, who were not partaking, hanging around for … our Dad was still alive, we were taking acid, the summer of love was birthing itself, and Lou&Linda&Company were living in the San Francisco Bay Area.

A year later not so true … Dad gone, and brothers gather, safe in a special way in each others company. Somewhere in there the nicknames: Snoony, Loony, and Puny … affections are hard to express … we wanted to make a rock album together, snoony in Denver, puny in SF, and loony in Lou-isianan.

We were stunned to be part of a funeral where over 600 people came from all over America to honor dad, who had been one of the fallen in the year 1968, along with MLK, and RFK, and the Democrat Pary. We were sons, wished all many of well, destined to go back wherever, although for loony and puny Montana was always a stronger calling of the heart.

Lou’s words after our father died (loony was a sensitive soul in a cruel age – still/yet, landing in the bosom of family in the last of 82 years – that’s a successful life, we all survive … but not without pains):

***A second spring

within life’s matrix
alternatives branch, bud
and wither.
The delicate lace
fine new leaves against
a patched gray sky suggests
the pattern.
Many branches and growing points
exist together.
Farther north and west
where winds exposed to
snow chill the
and lives
and winter’s death has not
been rescinded.
A second spring will come
new buds flower
the soft rains warm
chill soil.
This promise lies implicit
In the earth’s course.
Somewhere within the matrix
as on earth
is always ending.

the hidden whole of the hole

A hole is a curious type of physical phenomena … it is there, but matter empty … i.e. the space is surrounded, but physically empty.
generally when something is “not”, there is still a “there” there, like a kind of magnetic or electrical “field”.
for the elementals, such as the air elementals, they are “sound”. we are told of vibrations in the “air” that carry sound to the ear from the source, but a deeper appreciation realizes that that which “carries” are elemental beings.
what then happens when the ordinary nature of the form of the ear is physically empty? Do the air elements find the Hole as a gateway for deeper dancing with … with what? Sound?
we have a buzzing in the ears … a fault, especially if distracting. still it is there, and if sound is air-elementals dancing, the what is the buzzing – who or what is buzzing?
there is a sound to silence, just as Simon&Garfunkel tell us ….
In meditation we can listing for that sound, which is not sounding, for to careful observation the soundless sound IS.
we have a hard time understanding how the elemental kingdoms work, given our tendency to think in three dimensions … these beings are the link from the mother-generative beings to the physical work, yet in terms of geometry the movement is from “planer” space (flat yet infinite 2D space) to the 3D space the bilateral symmetry of our 3D form.
from the formless and uncreated realms, where SHE/HE & friends live, intentions of will descend toward materialization … still there is a passage through the imaginative flat plane-like yet infinite spacial aspects of the elemental kingdom, but still we find are are put to get how, used too seeing movement and connection in 3D, however …
that’s why the Vulcan artist M.C.Escher was sent to help us “see” … Notice Escher’s similar form to that of Tesla, should you want to learn to recognize Vulcan (incarnations from the linear future) folk …

attitude adjustment

So, I’ve been high most of the day … topping the day off with a scotch …

One of the ways to see this coming election is as if it is a Greek play designed by the Gods, and meant to bring catharsis … to expend emotions of many flavors, and in a sense is a Rite America Has, for our pubic life is a major religion – a sea of beliefs and hopes and dreams, and not all dreamers have the same hungers.

We are meant to be diverse, which at the least means actually free. We pay a price, but if we do the Rite well, and make it more celebratory of that diversity, we make something out of what seems to be lemons … even words can be … more artful, even the ones that sound like mud pies …

Make a party happen. Smoke weed at public events. Get arrested for being too happy.

Now that’s a revolution …
