Spinal Tap…

March 26, 2011


First there was the word, and it was?

Unspeakable. Yes. To think that a manifest thing (like sound) could con-vey the un-manifest or even more, the constantly changing boundary between manifest and un-manifest, yin to yang, positive to negative, here to there and back again, is, in my mind, a singular error.

God is a word. A name. A meme. In whatever language. MERELY a word.

A word is limited. See how funny and strange our reality is. Word. WorLd. En-folded.

Take the name in vain. Everytime. Over and over. And all you have done is wasted breath.

Do you understand the tongue which formed it? Even in silent taking, the tongue is in-volved. Try it. Still the tongue and take a word. You cannot.

Take the name in vain

Again and again

Like religion,


Again and again,

To what end?

Or beginning even?

They told me,

You said,

It was his…


but so profane

Spoken out


While hidden in a cloud,

Like rain,


Till a clap, like thunder

And flashing light

Ripped asunder

Un folded the


Drop, like Acid

On your tongue

Of flame


round about,

In circles,

Again and again,

No beginning

No end

it’s just around the bend,

One more time,

One more time,

God, Allah,

Krishn, Krishn

To no avail,

No wonder

The mystery is hidden. An open secret. In-visible, to the naked eye. Where is it? What is it? Why aren’t we just told the answer? Why always another question?

There is a little secret. Another one. Secret. Secrete. Think pineal. Deep recess. Not a pump you can reach or press at will. If only it was easy, eh? Not really. joy at being Chopper dropped on to the top of mount everest? Quite hollow eh?

We are here to delve. Between. Not sure how many got the magic of now here now here now here. Where’s the magic in that?

Hmmmmm…… Is silence merely the lack of sound?

How long does the pendulum pause between swings? Where is the place of maximum potential?

The pineal is the Spinal Tap.

Ponder that.

Between the lines.

    Systole – Diastole, air the second highest food only trumped by the brain food of “impressions”. So “word” can also be a thought.

    As for the speed of the pendulum, highest at the mid point between the opposites, generating the most force and connected to the third force. Conceivably the best place to disembark… However that being said, it would require strong “directed” will, somewhat like the first parachute jump, or as you put it… “joy at being Chopper dropped on to the top of mount everest?” where the air is most thin .

    The interesting thing about ideas, they can be most healing, but if used incorrectly, most destructive. The word balance comes to mind again, as the guiding force.

    Thanks again my friend, for the brain food!

      Balance in all things indeed, hmmmm, Eso?

      The beauty of beauties is that at every point in the swing, there is balance, or it would not be.
      That balance is what is hidden, always, even if something seems completely off kilter. Hidden dimensions.
      And thanks so much for the link to G’s book (I Am). Awesome read, as always. that writing style…. pierces right in.
      Something tells me though that everyone perhaps missed my point about Spinal Tap. All good though. We will try, again and again! 😉

        Hello Vivek

        I am so glad you are enjoying “I Am” , I think you would like Ouspensky and Nicoll too.

        Yes I have to agree that the machine would not work if not for a balanced engineering, which takes into consideration restrictive forces playing out
        against the centre.

        Gives a whole new meaning to “magnetic centre” though, and the most optimum point of balance with the least amount of restriction / resistance playing against the inertia. There I suspect, in that magical point, at maximum vibration, would be the doorway….. other wise put,

        “Its shape resembles a tiny pine cone (hence its name), and it is located near the center of the brain, between the two hemispheres

        Thanks for the chance to play and a reason to ponder.

    Gaining the skill to produce somatic turn-on at will
    I was a kid with the keys to a merry-go-round
    or a rat with the “pleasure” button wired
    until the *message* came.
    Pleasure is not the purpose
    learning to crawl is supposed to
    lead to other things.
    Open the eye;
    this mandala is a maze, and sometimes going backwards is going forwards, just one layer deeper.
    Now crawl up.

    No esoteric without the exoteric.
    Not all Eyes are open; not all ears hear (here).
    To know, to will, to dare…. to keep silent.
    Waking somnambulists is a dangerous business:
    each Star has a path of it’s own.


    My current favorite god-word is Elohim: a female root word with a masculine plural ending — about as non-specific (in number and gender) as a word is liable to get and still imply a level of sympathy for the human experience.

    My favorite God name is Madre (read mother, in Spanish). I am comforted knowing she is within me and I in her. She protects, she comforts, she watches. The seed of life unfolding in creation and creative destruction because of her. My favorite form of word is silence. If I can only reach silence of sound… of mind, what does it matter why I’m here. I am here. I am.

    Job 9


    1 Then Job replied:
    2 “Indeed, I know that this is true.
    But how can mere mortals prove their innocence before YAHWEH?
    3 Though they wished to dispute with him,
    they could not answer him one time out of a thousand.
    4 His wisdom is profound, his power is vast.
    Who has resisted him and come out unscathed?
    5 He moves mountains without their knowing it
    and overturns them in his anger.
    6 He shakes the earth from its place
    and makes its pillars tremble.
    7 He speaks to the sun and it does not shine;
    he seals off the light of the stars.
    8 He alone stretches out the heavens
    and treads on the waves of the sea.
    9 He is the Maker of the Bear[a] and Orion,
    the Pleiades and the constellations of the south.
    10 He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed,
    miracles that cannot be counted.
    11 When he passes me, I cannot see him;
    when he goes by, I cannot perceive him.
    12 If he snatches away, who can stop him?
    Who can say to him, ‘What are you doing?’
    13 YAHWEH does not restrain his anger;
    even the cohorts of Rahab cowered at his feet.

    14 “How then can I dispute with him?
    How can I find words to argue with him?
    15 Though I were innocent, I could not answer him;
    I could only plead with my Judge for mercy.
    16 Even if I summoned him and he responded,
    I do not believe he would give me a hearing.
    17 He would crush me with a storm
    and multiply my wounds for no reason.
    18 He would not let me catch my breath
    but would overwhelm me with misery.
    19 If it is a matter of strength, he is mighty!
    And if it is a matter of justice, who can challenge him[b]?
    20 Even if I were innocent, my mouth would condemn me;
    if I were blameless, it would pronounce me guilty.

    21 “Although I am blameless,
    I have no concern for myself;
    I despise my own life.
    22 It is all the same; that is why I say,
    ‘He destroys both the blameless and the wicked.’
    23 When a scourge brings sudden death,
    he mocks the despair of the innocent.
    24 When a land falls into the hands of the wicked,
    he blindfolds its judges.
    If it is not he, then who is it?

    25 “My days are swifter than a runner;
    they fly away without a glimpse of joy.
    26 They skim past like boats of papyrus,
    like eagles swooping down on their prey.
    27 If I say, ‘I will forget my complaint,
    I will change my expression, and smile,’
    28 I still dread all my sufferings,
    for I know you will not hold me innocent.
    29 Since I am already found guilty,
    why should I struggle in vain?
    30 Even if I washed myself with soap
    and my hands with cleansing powder,
    31 you would plunge me into a slime pit
    so that even my clothes would detest me.

    32 “He is not a mere mortal like me that I might answer him,
    that we might confront each other in court.
    33 If only there were someone to mediate between us,
    someone to bring us together,
    34 someone to remove YAHWEH’s rod from me,
    so that his terror would frighten me no more.
    35 Then I would speak up without fear of him,
    but as it now stands with me, I cannot.

      What this translates as “Yahweh” is the telegrammaton. Hebrew is written right to left, but in English, using roman lettering it is written:


      And has no vowels specified. (My particular favorite way of pronouncing it is “Yo! Hawaii!” )

      YHVH = Fire Water Air Earth
      YHVH = Assiah Yetzirah Briah Atziluth
      YHVH = Chiah Neshama Ruach Nephesh

      YHVH is beyond encapsulation, but it could be said the whole of conscious experience is experience within YHVH, whether perceived as external, or internal. It is beyond me how a concept this abstract is referenced with the English pronoun “he” in the other verses.

      How does this substitution change the meaning? Imagine what other change are “lost in translation”?

        The first letter, yud, means “hand.” Hei means “grace” and vav means “nail.” So the name YHWH literally translates into “hand of grace nailed in grace.” This is a clear unmistakable picture of Yeshua. Jesus.
        see for more details. He’s an amazing preacher – that is, if you’re truly interested in what the name YHWH means. You can search for his sermon #202 which will give you a whole lot of information on the hidden meanings of names in the Torah. YHWH bless you!

    He was a sumerian who sat on a throne in the semitic area of of Babylon among many along with his wife Ashtaroth. I wouldn’t get him mixed up with the word or great white spirit. He didn’t make the flowers grow, he just talked.

      • March 27, 2011 5:25 pm

        Peace GL. I don’t think any god wants or needs any “one” to defend his name.
        That has been the pre-text and the post-script of most wars.
        Let us all find our own wordless peace was kind of my point of the post anyways.
        Language, except pure sound, ALWAYS obfuscates. Always.
        It’s the nature of the lainguistic beast.

          No, He doesn’t NEED anyone to defend His mighty name. But He is certainly watching to see who glorifies it, and who blasphemes it. The entire reason He asked Solomon to build the second temple was to make a place for His NAME. It is precious to Him.

        “Language, except pure sound, ALWAYS obfuscates. Always.”

        in the case of YHVH, a word with all consonants that represents ‘The Most Holy of Holies’ aka ‘The Highest of The High’ aka ‘The Master String Puller’ aka ‘The Big Kahuna’ hiding the critical fact that it is the VOWELS that transmit the energy…the consonants only there to hold the space between vibrations.

        so typical of sneaky boys to hide something in plain sight (or sound in this case).

        how about instead of arguing over tetrapentagrammatronnics,
        say this word 3 times slow:


        and discover for yourself what part of the body it tickles.

        this is ka-ba-la, true magic, the real shit.

        all else is intentional distraction meant to divert our attention from where the power really resides…inside of each & every single one of us.

    A testimony is just that–a testimony. It is not a belligerent act nor a defense. This is my role, being YAH’s witness and telling others. The supernatural experience-relationship is there for those who have the necessary Mentality of Separation.

    My two little chihuahua mutts *do* know who YAHWEH is.

    Ponder that, as you like to say…

      GL, all good my Brother in Arms (left and right).
      We are all together on this journey. I look upon any desecration as my own in-stinctive response to an idea I hold dear. And personally, I’ve seen the desecration of Hinduism (Yoga, Tantra and all the other A’s). They are pure. In and of themselves. They don’t need my defense.
      I understand what you are saying though. All good.

    • March 28, 2011 4:49 am

      John, India is a Corrupt, klepto/thugocracy. Run mostly by a criminal class of politicians playing the tune of their funding masters from overseas and old British Era connections. I think that can be said for every nation in the world right now. In India, it’s face is just particularly ugly and un-caring.
      Really ugly and totally un-caring.
