I expect my brother Tiger to comment here. Or perhaps Shiva.
No worries.
I am sad because it was so brief but so potent.

From tonight's asana. You can't expect pure poesy if it's a true dharana to samadhi....but i wanted to express what I am still fleetingly feeling.....
Corpse asana

What is this...
Relax
Breathe
Chakra bounce
From top to bottom to top
Where am I
I am floating
Vibrating
What is North South East or West?
What?
I?
Nothing.
Sensation.
Breathing.
Nothing.
I?
Nothing.
Gravity.
Gone.
INHALE
Where am I?
I am ...?
I am.
I?
Here?

Damn.

No, it would appear not. It looks like Tiger is now facing some fierce competition to be the next E.J. Thribb ?

I thought Tiger was doing a personal Jugorum exercise of willfully communicating like they're at a poetry slam.
It produced some wonderfully funny situational imaginings.
Outside the funny though it'd be a difficult and admirable thing to maintain then stop after a long time without going back to it unconsciously.

The scent of wet volcanic soil
broken grass and invasive weeds
seasoned with decaying leaves
blend under the apricot tree
that drinks from the sewer
near the lake and shelters
the body in dew and camouflage
as its spirit kisses the loving
welcoming depths of night.

My will is fate.

Ode to God asana

Gently now
Stay upright gently
Stiff
Gently stiff
Crack me
Move
No no no

Breathe
Rooted to the earth
Via the root chakra and
Little feetsies

I am a statue
A vampiric eidolon
Sucking the qi
Through me heads
And me feet
The body becomes
A husk
All is energy

.

()

BAM

Crack that back

If a wheel spun in my head

To me it would be going clockwise

To those on the outside it would be going counter clockwise

To me inside I may see white

Where others see black

Shall I transmute myself for others, or for myself?

I couldn't find the poem thread

This was in corpse asana.

Feel free to share

Cedar falls on empty things

In the muffle of snow

We walk empty headed

Galumphing

Pick up the pace

We pass the geese

Shouldn't they leave ?

Pick up the pace

Lazy animals

Nature is beautiful

God is great

Stop talking. Keep walking

 

The cedars sway in the

 wind

Smell the needles

Hmm

There's mountain lions around

You can die at any moment

Be calm

Its so beautiful

God posture.

 

Renfields Beached

 

 

Stalking starlight by instruction

storm clouds obscure reach

Renfield's desperate for induction

with the last word on the beach.

 

 

"Van Helsing? Vainglorious!",

screams the quiet pious man

apologizing victorious

even before he began.

 

 

The picture outside the frame

seen in the common light

is beyond eyes that flame

with their own delight.

 

 

A whimsy of distraction

for the monster's goal

isn't of Renfield's making

but to put him on the shoal.

 

 

On strange shallows grounded

ship and mind splinter

with death's whistle hounding

the silent final words of winter.

My will is fate.

The head of the Templi Omnium Hominum Pacis Abbas,
turned 180 degrees,
bellowing fumes
of unspeakable mysteries.

Charging the susceptive,
fluid electric agent.

Illuminating;
Zoophagous supplication rituals of exhortation;
of the Ecstatic Reprobate.

 

The veil closed.
The automated research team
filed into
systematic protocol.
As an aberration.

@XON 

I think I hate your online persona and ego because it is full of show:

 

'look at me look at me erudition'  Mixed with an inexplicable (to me) show of juvenile references and memes such as 'boomer' and 'you are on block' (like a 14 year old child) and also other holier than thou references but none-the-less I do appreciate your poetry.

 

So thanks for contributing.

 

 

 

Perhaps you chain those ego tigers and meld them into something more akin to a poet hermit.

 

 

Anyway, good stuff, sometimes.

Hate is a rather strong emotion to feel. That along with your opinion is yours to own. It's not something I take onto myself. It's reflective of the individual making the comment. When feeling strong emotions it's been my experience that it's better to self-examine emotional reactions. Yet, in the detritus of being on the receiving end of emotional outbursts and unasked for advice there may be something to glean  of value that uplifts rather than diminishes. Hermit, for example, seems astute in a thelemic context and something that is reflected in self-examination.

As for the "you are on block" statement(I believe I said ignore), you must have missed the original context, that was in regards to not wanting to get into a bickering contest as well as letting others know I wasn't participating in it. Although, that didn't stop a few from continuing with it and trying to goad. It would be better if moderation was a bit more strict in regards to hostility and personal attacks.

My will is fate.

But then what would your posts consist of? You seldom seem to have anything to say about AC, Thelema, or any other topic relevant to this site.

Passive-aggressive psychobabble snowflake-vocabulary personal attacks are your main stock in trade here, other than posting terrible music and comedy bits with a questionable connection to the legacy of AC. And pontificating about the politics of countries you do not live in, of course.

Oh, and the posturing as some sort of intellectual, with amusing results.

And the posturing as an illuminate here to enlighten us trogs; results ditto.

Perhaps you are familiar with the African-American saying "The higher up the tree the monkey climb, the more he show his ass"?

There is an interesting article someone shared that seems applicable to the techniques you demonstrate and to your intent.

https://pro.psychcentral.com/exhausted-woman/2016/05/11-ways-narcissists-use-shame-to-control/

Historical Revisionism. A narcissist will retell another person’s story adding their own flare of additional shame. This can be done in front of others or privately. It usually happens after the other person has achieved some level of accomplishment. The narcissist will state that they are only trying to keep the other person humble but in reality, they are trying to humiliate.

Comparing Accomplishments. It doesn’t matter what the other person has accomplished, the narcissist did it first, better, and more efficiently. By outperforming the other person, the narcissist minimizes the other person’s accomplishments in comparison to their own. This produces an ‘I can never be good enough,’ feeling in the other person.

Offensive Play. The narcissist will use personal attacks to put the other person on the defense. The other person will get so caught up in defending their name or character that they will miss the next attack. “Look how defensive you are, you must have done something wrong,” the narcissist will say. This is a checkmate position because the other person has nowhere to go.

It's remarkable how close you resemble these observations. 

Anyhow, this discussion is off topic, but it seemed important to let you know that there's awareness of these techniques. Maybe a poem may manifest on the matter after meditation.

Thank you for demonstrating that my summary of your persona/posts was exactly on the money.
