The Light at the End

  as a lark, before we resume the practical stuff, we simultaneously do a halloween extravaganza, an election preview special, and an example of how to plunge oneself into a totally paranoid hellworld, where luciferians rule the earth.

 there’s some stuff about american politics, the metaphysics of light, half assed futurism, world war 3, the illuminati, and global macroeconomics.

  Don’t drink the kool-aid. at least no more than is somewhat fun for you…

Systematic for the People 8: Gather it up, then let it go forever

…and so we round up this first phase of systematic for the people, in a nice tidy box of grandiose visionary experiences and textbook mysticism.

I’d like to leave these eight as a clear backbone for everything else. You can play around all you like, but these foundational techniques have stood the test of time.  ignore at one’s own peril.

While the series will continue, I might play around a bit with some other stuff first. It would probably be worthwhile to re read some of the alchemy for the braindamaged stuff, for a nice psychological spin dry cycle, if you hadn’t already. You may find the difference interesting once you’re moving a bit more energy around with that brain of yours, to play some of the language and imagery games I present there with more fuel in the furnace.

So be careful, y’all.

Retorts and Rarefactions

..just a wee bit of housekeeping today.

 I’ve revised my blogroll a little bit, as I thought it a bit unfair to not make a distinction between those sites that are still up and running versus those that have gone dormant. ‘Not dead, but dreaming’ will now denote those sites that have a rich body of work that has concluded for the time being.  If it’s still here, then it’s worth your time, but for the novelty junkies the party has gone elsewhere.

 I’ve never felt the need to be one of those sites that must link to everything and everyone. part of my role that i take seriously, is to filter what’s out there and let people know what’s cogent to me and, if they happen to share my taste, to them.

  The ground zero category is the stuff I read most everyday, or friends, or simply sentimental value. you decide which.  If you’ve linked to me at some point, you will probably pass through ‘my house is your house’.  just so we’re clear, right.

   And for the real social networking pimps, you will be pleased to know I’ve established a junta on myspace, and am in the progress of becoming a ‘featured artist’ there. Who knows how that will go, but I thought it would be fun to IM some of ya’ll and have my stuff playing when you get there. In the meanwhile, if you have music up on myspace and you’d like me to put it up there, then let me know. for the rest of y’all, if you’re so inclined, then by all means ‘add’ me.

I’m also conducting an experiment to see how many ‘friends’ I can accumulate by being as confrontational and abusive as possible. I’m fascinated by the difference between the sort of ‘peer-esteem’ type dynamic that these sites are supposed to run on versus what it is they really do. The purpose of a system is what it does, kids. tattoo it on your forehead backwards so you can see it in the mirror.

there will be a test later.

Systematic for the People 7: Wave of Dissolution

 

As we come to our penultimate chapter dealing with the limbs of ‘yoga’, I have to cease my relentless browbeating and instead exhort one to love, reflection, relaxation and release from false evidence appearing real.

In so doing, the door opens to infinity, or at least some really kickass moves on the basketball court.

Peak experiences, boundry dissolution, foci for concentration, and why some things are easier to focus on than others.

as tyler durden once said; you are not special, you are the same decaying organic matter as everything else. Who knew he was referring to the fundamental unity beyond the ego?

step right in,  space monkeys…

Systematic for the People 6: Siddha Supermassive

 

If you’ve ever wanted to be a radiant loci of mind force, surrounded by swooning tantric initiates, drunk on the ecstacy of your own communion with primordial mind, throwing off sparks of yogic power to be harvested by the devoted and virtuous… well this is how you do that.

If you just wanna kick some ass on PS3, then this is also how you do that.

If you just wanna know how to sit still for a hour without losing your mind, you are also in luck.

It’s concentration, baby, and there is no accomplishment without concentration.

Systematic for the People 5: Cast Adrift

…and now for the hard stuff.

I get the dubious privelage of leveling an across the board critique of pretty much all western esotercism from the last hundred years at least.

And it’s all rooted in a simple idea: that consciousness should not be led around by the senses.

The name of the game is pratyahara, and in so playing we brush upon john lilly, the master therion, the road of excess, staring into the toilet bowl and spiritually conscious outlets for jacking off.

Yes, sometimes even I wonder where I come up with this shit, but I’m getting a thousand  downloads every 6 days or so,  so I must be doing something right.  Thank you for your kind indulgence.

and now that I mention it, if some of ye multitudes were to wander over to my donations page and drop a few bucks, that would be swell.  I’d like to quit my job now. I’d ask for worshipfull groupies, but I doubt Alaina would dig that very much, so it’s the tip jar or nothing, girls!

Off you go!

Systematic for the People 4: The Invisible Fire

Ok. Up until now you could probably get away with screwing around with this stuff. Even going as far as asana will make you significantly harder than most of the people  in this game.

But if you start doing some of these pranayama excercises and you don’t do your homework, and you don’t lay down some preparations for a potentially rude awakening, then I take no responsibility for what happens to you.

The mental health ‘industry’ is slowly defining a category for people who fuck themselves up with practices like this, so tread carefully.
