The Karma of Secrets

The first thing to say abouts secrets is that they all in some way itch, they itch at being. The second thing to say is that secrets bind. Secrets also have a tendency to infect and cause fear in their purveyors. They nearly always generate new Karma to be worked with and sometimes, though not always, have a habit of surfacing at the most inconvenient of times. Some secrets are carried to the grave. Organisations, governments and people use secrets when they think it expedient. Avoiding a problem today often stores it up for tomorrow.

People are fascinated by secrets. Fascination binds.

This fascination is by way of a glamour and an attachment. Because most know that secrets are “naughty” they come with a certain salaciousness and a sense of privilege. Some how the possessors and purveyors of secrets are better than others, they are in the know, others are in the dark.

Exactly who is in the dark and who is in the light, is a moot point, often unconsidered.

From a point of liberation what is most germane is their binding conspiratorial nature. If you share a secret, you share the breath of that secret, you conspire and breathe it together. Whispers in the dark, keep you in the dark, for fear of light.

The two major cause of secrets are lack of impeccability and lack of courage. If you are impeccable there is never any need for secrets.

Anything, any act, which binds you, is not good for liberation.

I suspect that there is not a being alive who has never lied nor never held a secret, at some stage or another. It is the Karma, the Dharma, of holding a secret that needs learned from. There is nothing quite like real life experience to teach.

The cure for secrets is impeccability.

It is as simple as this. If you are utterly impeccable you will never feel the need to lie or hold secrets. You may not feel the urge to spill the beans on everything you know, yet if the time to speak on it comes, there is no secret, no attachment.

People are attached to secrets. Beings often cannot move past a secret. They are log jams in evolution.

Often the secret, held deep and hidden, is no way near as bad as people have built it up to be. Its revelation seldom causes a tsunami nor the explosion of the sun. Some secrets are bad and these eat and itch at the being all of their lives.

Secrets cause suffering!

It is a matter for each individual as to which secrets they keep. One could try airing a few of these to see if God strikes you down. Theory has it He knows in any case. Much of the suffering associated with secrets is SELF generated for the SELF is what keeps or shares secrets, so as to bolster its SELF IMAGE.

As I have mentioned before, Karma is for learning by and from.

Have I ever kept a secret? Have I shared secrets about others? What have I learned through this? What am I still learning from this?

The Sword Taia – Cutting Through the Crap

In the previous post I have quoted two pieces which had and have profound and sustained impact on me. I have dabbled in Japanese martial arts on and off. I was never really interested in getting a black belt, but I am a sponge. I did train for a while with a Japanese trained expert, perhaps the last of his kind, and what I gained from him was more than physical it was a contact to the Budo lineages reaching back and the impeccability thereof.

If I may be so bold.

There are vast swathes of crap in modern social interaction and in the ME, ME self-advancement psychodrama. People are drowning in it. I have just seen an advert for a non-binary ginger biscuit! But it is still insensitive to the trigger word ginger, a persecuted minority. Why cannot it be orange-brown instead of the discriminative, finger pointing, ginger?  We need to reframe this as a non-binary orange-brown biscuit.

Foxtrot, foxtrot, Sierra.

Careful with the word orange, especially in Ireland.

Seems to me, that there is some shenanigans / political / reputational crap going on in West London and it pertains to “how to manage Alan”.

By all means have your chinwags, your discussions and if you want to try to throw in a seemingly non-aligned head of department from Strand Poly, I will counsel against. Get a girl to do a man job…nice idea…

Speaks volumes…

We are going to watch the new Twin Peaks tonight…

There are now 21 {peace and success} traps out for the piss taking mole…

And on Sunday we have a southerly with 80 km/h gusts forecast.

At last, the wind is changing…

Leaving the Homeworld

The Chandra X-ray image of Sirius A & B, a double star system located 8.6 light years from Earth, shows a bright source and a dim source. The central bright source is Sirius B, a dense white dwarf star with a surface temperature of about 25,000 degrees Celsius. The dim source (slightly above and to the right of Sirius B) is Sirius A, a normal star more than twice as massive as the Sun. The spoke-like pattern of light is an instrument artifact due to the transmission grating. The white dwarf, Sirius B, has a mass equal to the mass of the Sun packed into a diameter that is 90% that of the Earth. The gravity on the surface of Sirius B is 400,000 times that of Earth!
