Hooked by Greed, Anger and Delusion?

Currently I am re-reading “The Zen Teachings of Bodhidharma” translated by Red Pine and from which the following extract is taken.

The whole “greed is good” mantram is being waived about apropos of vaccine hoarding. “Charity begins at home”, whatever. Boris is claiming that greed is a good thing, selfishness is OK. Aren’t we clever?

The three poisons are greed , anger and delusion, many people are hooked to these.

Are you a “greed is good” kind of being?

This morning I found a fishing lure hanging from our boundary wire. Someone is after “our” trout who was in that pool last summer.

People are lured, tempted, by greed , anger and delusion. They find them very difficult to let go of.

Making Claims – portcullis mind.

People make all sorts of claims when they are trying to sell themselves or make themselves look better. Many people big themselves up, sometimes to get promotion. People do not like the pin applied to their claims balloon.

People will believe all sorts of stuff without checking it and will refuse to believe stuff even if it is true. That is because human beings are weird fish. Some claims are impossible to check. We have had a Donald making loads of claims. People can be entirely prejudiced. I get the sense people are now turning on him, in quite a nasty way. It is strange I am actually feeling empathy for him. I never thought I would claim that.

If for example and as a thought experiment I say that I am from time to time in telepathic rapport with Djwal Kuhl and Kuthumi, there is absolutely no way that I can prove such a claim. There is no way, from where you are reading this, that you can disprove it, either. You may however think that I am away with fairies, I have lost the plot, I am delusional, or I am simply bullshitting. In your mind telepathy might be impossible, the stuff of science fiction and Marvel comics. You could make a counter claim that it is you in fact who is in telepathic contact and these guys have told you that I am lying. We could compete to see who is the most delusional. If you like to win, you could win by being more delusional than me. It depends how important winning is to you!!

I have heard someone claim that all trained nagal beings are in touch with one another through the “mind-link”. Because I am open-minded when I heard this, I thought OK, might be possible.

If I told you that I worked with Comte de Saint Germain in my previous European life, you might imagine me a fantasist, some kind of whacko or a loony tune. After all I did invent the “loony quiz”, see my earlier post today.

We get a lot of politicians making claims about test and trace, vaccine roll out et cetera. I found that Reuters have a fact checker section.

I’ll just come back to the blue books for a second. Way more people read them than you might imagine and if you haven’t come across them this might surprise. I genuinely have a science background and that kind of thing might not sit too well with mainstream omniscient natural sciences. I had to politely explain to several blue book readers once that concrete minds of a fifth ray bent (scientists) do not like new age “hippies” using words like vibration, ray, energies. I can use the language of the blue books to explain the reticence of my erstwhile colleagues. I could make a claim that I am bilingual, I can speak both concrete science and new age.

If I say that on the lower levels of the cosmic mental plane one can find the world of The Lipika Lords. Above that is a world best thought of as the World of the Dragons. Above that is Amitabha’s world and just above that the domain of Ganesh which sits below the golden triangle, the city of the golden triangles. Unless you can “go” there in your mind there is no way that you can check if what I have just written is reproducible in your “lab”, your mind. But you can’t go there because you cannot open your crown chakra and take your consciousness that far outside your body without dying!

So, what does one do? One has to find out for oneself and trust one’s own judgement without having portcullis mind slam a priori.

I am going to define a new state of consciousness. It is portcullis mind, mind that slams shut out of preconception. Once shut it is immovable.

Do you have portcullis mind?

That Diesel Delusion..

all those glorious knights

tapping out djembe rumours

seated that table round


their courage vast

with impeccable conscience

and Braveheart deeds


ghosts of Christmases past

rattling their chains

iron linked in justification


armour now rusting

ferric, ferrous brown

the patina loses shine


no minutes for this one

or records allowed

nothing more to redact


that mystic problem

the hermite conundrum

our to do, dilemma


if only the six feet

had him box bound

for all eternity


those jungle drums

call and answer zoom

of an impending doom



give him haloperidol

to polish his halo

that deluded Angel


slip him ziprasidone

or a Thorazine

to slow him down


after all

it is him not us

WE are right and just




Persecutory. People with this type of delusional disorder believe that they (or someone close to them) are being mistreated, or that someone is spying on them or planning to harm them. It is not uncommon for people with this type of delusional disorder to make repeated complaints to legal authorities.

Grandiose. A person with this type of delusional disorder has an over-inflated sense of worth, power, knowledge, or identity. The person might believe he or she has a great talent or has made an important discovery.



zen and the art of motorcycle quotes

“What is in mind is a sort of Chautauqua…that’s the only name I can think of for it…like the traveling tent-show Chautauquas that used to move across America, this America, the one that we are now in, an old-time series of popular talks intended to edify and entertain, improve the mind and bring culture and enlightenment to the ears and thoughts of the hearer.”


“And what is good, Phaedrus,

And what is not good—

Need we ask anyone to tell us these things?”


“The pencil is mightier than the pen.”


“Care and Quality are internal and external aspects of the same thing. A person who sees Quality and feels it as he works is a person who cares. A person who cares about what he sees and does is a person who’s bound to have some characteristic of quality.”


“When one person suffers from a delusion, it is called insanity. When many people suffer from a delusion it is called a Religion.”


“We’re in such a hurry most of the time we never get much chance to talk. The result is a kind of endless day-to-day shallowness, a monotony that leaves a person wondering years later where all the time went and sorry that it’s all gone. ”


“The Buddha, the Godhead, resides quite as comfortably in the circuits of a digital computer or the gears of a cycle transmission as he does at the top of the mountain, or in the petals of a flower. To think otherwise is to demean the Buddha – which is to demean oneself.”


“Your common sense is nothing more than the voices of thousands and thousands of these ghosts from the past.”
