THE WEATHER'S SO MISERABLE IT'S STARTING TO CHEER ME UP!

       I've done a lot of writing and 
songwriting in dark places - what
you might call dark places - dark,
either because there was no light
or dark because the company was odious.
In  WAIT-A-BIT in the dark 24 hours
a day six to ten months a year ( sometimes
it seems longer).
       You could call the Preacher dark company
here in this flickering light from the yellow
gun powder-flecked candles. His breath is bad and he's flatulent. The gruff words he utters are
like barks from a fat dog down a well.
        Susie is writhing on top of the bar stool.
Can't sit still.

         "Hey, Artie!  It's dark as fuck in here!
Light an oil lamp, will ya?"
          Artie's out back. Shouts back: "Can't find the oil!"  He emerges behind the bar. "I can always burn some liquor."
          "No don't do that!" Frank says. (I'm Frank)

           The wind is howling like 3 dreaming fiends outside the bar door.  Every so often it sounds like someone kicks the door.  But it's only the wind. 
            That wind would blow you right down along the ice on the river.

            "The weather's so miserable it's starting to cheer me up~!" says Frank.

HOMAGE TO MILAREPA

MILAREPA was an early Indian poet, singer and magician. His verses are still available to us.
        OK. this is not a dance song... It's structure is based on the Indian raga... although this version is primitive. My voice when it comes in is rather high... But recording something at 3:00 AM, you should not expect perfection. I post this for interest's sake. Still there's a sweet tune in there... support for DREAMING WHILE AWAKE, my meditative technique. Sitting for the half way lazy man, and for the adventurer in the vast inner realm, who damn well will not be told what to do. This version is only seven minutes. I have another one that is 17. I like this song " HOMAGE TO MILAREPA" because this is the way it emerged out of the dark.

THE GREEN DOOR WITHIN

        


        This book is A VOLUNTARY REGRESSION... into the EARLIER PRIMAL WORLD OF CHILDHOOD... childhood
that MYSTERIOUS COUNTRY, this HIDDEN EDEN... this PARADISE AND HELL WITHIN WHICH WE CAMOUFLAGE OURSELVES... This book is a JOURNEY
into this strange interior land, which only certain artists and self-hypnotists enjoy the vast wealth of... possessing the key.
       Rare is the man who hold the key to the GREEN DOOR WITHIN. More rare still is the man who knows how to use the key without disrupting the very core of his personality, without destroying the very foundation of his being.
        Such an artist must be able to play like a child, to fantasize,
potentialize others, feel primordial awe for his own feces, ask fundamental questions of the Void and God.... Eg: "What are dreams for?""What does God know? What's it like to die?"
And at the same time he sees the mystery of that shady little alley under the eavestroughs at the back of his white house.
        The artist regresses voluntarily so he may immerse
himself again and again in that primal edenic world of WONDER that is the domain of childhood., the kingdom and realm of the very young.
         And the source of horror.

THE REVELATION OF JOHN




"Whoever is near to me,
is near the fire; "
"Whoever is far from me,
is far from the Kingdom." Jesus said.

John Sallie How does that jive with, "Rather, the kingdom is inside of you, and outside of you."

Walker Ballantine Fire is inside and outside of you. The kingdom is laid out upon the earth and men see it not.

John Sallie True. And now even Quantum Mechanics is hypothisising this very fact. The universe, they imply, for all intents and purposes is holographic. If so, then something is projecting this hologram. My own personal belief is that this hologram is in fact theconsciousness of God projecting itself. In this regard, there is no escaping the "kingdom" because it is All the kingdom. You couldn't be outside of it even if you wanted to be. Lol Just simply my belief. 😊

John Sallie And this, to me, is why Thomas said,

"If I tell you one of the words he said to me, you will pick up stones and throw them at me..." 


And what do I believe Jesus said to Thomas?

That, "You Are God."

"The heavens opened and the whole creation shone in an unearthly light, and a boy appeared unto me, but I saw the form as an old man, within whom there was light. And the forms of the one before me were numerous owing to the light; the forms kept appearing through one another. I looked on him but did not understand this wonder."

Walker Ballantine How is this for a hologram?

John Sallie Such experiences are very personal in nature. I, as you, have experienced similar type visions albeit totally different in their content and context.

Walker Ballantine Yes, and when discussing such visions, Grace entersthe room...An entirely different situation arises, one that no one is expecting.

Walker Ballantine A further vision emerges.

Cathy White Sample Many years ago I had a dream where I was shown the formulae , incredibly long, for the hypercube turning in on itself to the 4th dimension. of course I couldn't remember the whole formulae. this to me is the same essence as the hologram of the individual when in no time there is no age
