in case you need reminding why i'm taking refuge in michael tsarion

The news isn't worth attention just now. Whereas, the kaleidoscopic light show of Tsarion's blend of knowledge and speculation is riveting. I'm sure it's more riveting to me because I am into considering how he has thrown dharma into the air and put back the pieces in an entirely spectacular way.

Within Buddhism there are three vehicles—Hinayana, Mahayana and Ekayana—and, indeed, several models of each, available as transportation out of delusion and into the real. Each vehicle is geared, broadly, toward the needs of various mentalities. By far the most people need to start with the Hinayana, where the MAIN thrust is you-do-not-exist-and-settle-the-fuck-down, because they cannot enter without getting over that part, don't have the first part of a chance to catch the hem of the crucial insight because they are too blocked by belief in the reality of their false selves and their conditioned outlooks. There are quite a few who are so altruistically-oriented they can start right out in the Mahayana, the don't-be-a-selfish-bastard vehicle. The Ekayana, the One vehicle, is for those who don't need either of those starting gates. I can rap this down because I have the most experience with this mystical school, but there are other mystical schools that use their own modes of psychic travel to get you the same place. The same place. Awake. Aware. Dealing with the real.

The goal is identical in them all.

No matter what vehicle is involved, the vital thing to know is that it cannot be mere dogma. The schools must continually morph, never fall into dogmatic repetition of what worked in the past, because the deluded can easily learn to sound just like the enlightened ones who have gone before. They can sit at the head of the room and quote enlightened masters and put you through all kinds of rigors and you will end up having gone through untold rigors, signifying bubkes. Imitation cannot teach. There is NO linguistic form that can encapsulate it, and any linguistic form can transmit it, so long as an enlightening being is doing the transmitting. I think Tsarion has slipped the bonds of didacticism. The autodidact has done a Jackson Pollack with dogma... and the dharma is twinkling in the background.

I'm about 90% sure Michael Tsarion can wake you up if you don't need the basics to gain access, but wonder if he can do anything for suffering sentients too ready to just close their ears because they can't hear any loony and unscientific mumbo-jumbo about space aliens and numerology. I'm wondering if he doesn't leave you in the dust with all the ways he makes sure to appeal to the masses of conspiracy nuts and alien abductees. If your mental conditioning to knee jerk discount anyone on these subjects, how can he help you?

He can help you if you've been listening to me about removing yourself from your listening, provisionally, for long enough to hear, before you drop your iron curtain down on him. ONLY if you are a strong enough being can you do this, and you will not become strong enough until you learn to do it. A person of good faith, a genuine person, someone who really wants to be of use and to help bring us out of this mess, will do the kind of work on themselves it takes to uncritically listen to others and learn from it. I do NOT mean to learn to mimic what you hear, to be the kind of uncritical that convinces you to get off one bus to hell in favor of a more comfortable or entertaining ride. I mean that you need to educate yourself and quit just furiously sucking up bits of information to identify yourself with or against as you whizz by in your merry way through our daily agonies. You need to get big enough, and cool enough, and strong enough to deal with this world, do you not?

What you ARE doing is not cutting it, right?

This guy has plucked enlightening being from the vast libraries of alternative research, and if you are smart you will try to catch his wave, whether or not you can hang with his theories or space aliens or astrology or numerology or debauched secret societies poisoning every corner of all media with nefarious symbolism. None of that matters. You can just leave it hanging there, neither for it nor against it. There is a transcendentally lucid thread going through all of it, and you can't come wise to it if you don't just keep listening without judging.

love, 99

  2. News is also made by the people.

    "[The] major world powers, new and old, also face a novel reality: while the lethality of their military might is greater than ever, their capacity to impose control over the politically awakened masses of the world is at a historic low. To put it bluntly: in earlier times, it was easier to control one million people than to physically kill one million people; today, it is infinitely easier to kill one million people than to control one million people.[1]"

    Are We Witnessing the Start of a Global Revolution?

    As the Haitian pot washer used to say at the Breakers: "Bet your ass it's hot!"

  3. This is why it's important to keep things in perspective Vodaphone vs These or These for example.
