Guerilla Wizardry: DIY spiritual pat(c)hwork

GODS & RADICALS

Stick em' up! Stick em’ up!

By The Dizzy Wizard

All Gods – No Masters!

Mainstream religious thought is rife with oppressive doctrine, patriarchy, and bigotry. Global history is colored by the death that deity worship has caused, yet many of those who deny spiritual practice have adapted or acknowledged the beneficial tenets that are professed by most faiths. That is to say, in all things there is balance if you look past what is presented TO you and instead create something that is made FOR you. Towards this end it helps to dissect the process of spiritual work, utilizing what rites and practices most apply to understanding of the self while discarding or re-purposing the things that are detrimental to personal growth. The result of understanding this process is a personal method of access to an intangible force of nature. More frequently this method of access is used in ritual and energy…

constant humdrum
clank, bang, and thud

gears grindin’
wheels spinnin’

people cursin’
hollerin’ and laughin’

blank stares
excessive frowns

corporate clowns
ups and downs

 

tobacco chewin’ and cigarette smokin’
coke and coffee drinkin’
sometimes good food home made

(we mostly leave the weed, whiskey, cocaine, meth, and guns out in the parking lot)

hot acids and alkalines
molten zinc

chemical spills and puddles of oil
air heavily hazy with fine dust in one room
air saturated with oil in the next

cranes poise tons of steel overhead,
tubular formed steel flies by at hundreds of feet per minute

perpetual night
shrouded in an artificial day

monotonous rhythm brain schism
a rich man’s vision

dancin’ with the demon
bitchin’ and screamin’

dream squashin’
brain washin’

soul forfeiture

the only thing
that remains unstained
the hard and shinin’
diamond like perfection
of this timeless moment

WTFGZ II

Ok … yeah … so I suggested that wtf guerrilla zen was cleanliness and order. Ya know, first things first. Not antiseptic or puritanical, just healthy, really more for one’s own mind and environment than  to please others. I always trying to create space, room to work.

And actually that flows straight into training and discipline. Cleanliness, order, training and discipline is simply another way of sayin’ live in learning mode. I just talkin’ ’bout what I have to do to survive. This the same shit I been sharin’ fo’ awhile now, irw. And again I saying don’t take anything to an extreme. Well, I guess maybe nothing is too extreme until it imposes on other folks or otherwise detracts from your health and wellbeing.

Well. That’s really all there is to it. The beginning and end of guerrilla zen. You live in learning mode and you can accomplish anything. Uh, that is, if your willin’ to do the grunt work.  The grunt work is the slow, tedious, repetitive, boring routine of learning a new skill. Could be anything – chess, guitar, basketball, martial arts, mathematics, mechanics – any of thousands of life and community enhancing skills, gardening or healing, maybe even the granddaddy of them all – sitting quietly doing nothing.

And while you sittin’ there doin’ nothin’ explore yo’ own mind – go past all the surface bullshit it throws up and shine a light in the hidden corners – spot the demons where they live, they dare not manifest. Face ALL that. And while you sittin’ there doin’ nothin’ you may prepare for the worst case scenario, be prepared. Pay Attention.

false friends
liars and hypocrites
push their agenda
and evangelize their fears
while presenting them as virtues
that you are obliged to adopt
if you want to fit in

strange looks
from
strange people
nervous and afraid
they impose themselves
upon my vision
interrupting my stoic stare

when they look again
I curl my lip
and gaze at them
until they turn away

Alchemy for the Braindamaged VII: A Symbolic Order

Alchemically Braindamaged

Before we move on, a couple more points on the last installment relating to concentration: why it works, how it works and why it’s hazardous.

It helps to think of the mind as a kind of ecology full of all kinds of conflicting impulses, beliefs, concepts, and emotional perspectives on things. This whole ecology is sustained more or less by the attention/energy you give it. In practice you can treat energy and attention as the same thing. In truth one follows the other so closely they might as well be the same.

Now attention has ( at least ) two aspects to it, and they can both be trained. Breadth and depth. Most of us have no problem with a extremely wide and diverse breadth of attention. We maintain views on the whole universe after all. Or we think we do anyway. Most of us have a lot less practice…
