The cornflower blue moon is upon us. What a great time to talk about limboic stasis. “What in the fucking hell is “limboic stasis” you might ask? I dunno. Just made it up. I think I did anyway. Not the concept, the name.
Once a dumbass, always a dumbass...right?
Perhaps SoPi-O can help us with this transition.
^The “Limbo State Of Awakening” – (& How To Move On)^
If you are “psychic”, why is it so jarring that you are equally capable of sometimes being “antipsychic”? Wasn’t there a time when you were not what you now are? To relate, just because you are a distance runner doesn’t mean you are distance running right now, nor does it mean you are capable of distance running at this precise moment. Capability and/or capacity for a certain activity is not indicative of some steady-state existence.
Take a minute to ponder the preparation that distance runners endure in order to prepare for an event. But life is not always like that. Meaning, within this psychic or spiritual realms we travel in life, we rarely have the luxury of being able to prepare for some something down the road. Not to mention that if you are preparing, the Universe has a tendency to show up at whatever function we’ve been preparing for, and they are armed with an infinite supply of produce to throw at our raggedy asses as we take center stage.
Is Not / Is \ Was
Everything that I’ve found within “the spiritual realms” is equally paradoxical.
Is Not Now /= Is Now
Is Now =\ Is Not Now
As you read that left to right, then down, time progresses, is/is not and was/was not, become “am” once you as an individual can find your own comfort with discomfort.
Am Not Now /= Am Now
Am Now =\ Am Not Now
There is a time when “am = am not”, and there is a time where “am = am”. There is an equality to “am/am not” over the course of time. Some can be comfortable with certain truths, others cannot. I guess it depends on what we strive for and why. Take for example, the concept of seniority.
^DEPECHE MODE INSIGHT^
We like getting in early.
Getting in on the ground floor.
This provides us the opportunity to advance.
Hover over others
Just last night, I watched a video with Roob of some dude reading The Emerald Tablets of Thoth, and Thoth was all fucking over the concepts of ascension and structure and order and law, and talked about all kinds of hierarchies that exist on these higher and higher planes.
We wanna get in on that. But I’m gonna divert here to a Sufi story that I listened to from Idries Shah’s book “A Veiled Gazelle: Seeing How To See”. The book is a collection of short stories, and the story I’m thinking about addresses some of the misconceptions we can maybe sometimes have about seniority.
That Google Books link above should take you straight to the story we are about to explore a bit.
^Depeche Mode – Happiest Girl^
The story is called “Young And Old”, and it’s the story of some older dude on his spiritual path, looking for teachers and their teachings. The old dude has all kinds of experiences and knowledge under his belt, but this new teacher he stumbles onto is WAY too young and seemingly inexperienced to teach the old dude anything. The old dude seeking smarts tells the young teacher as much, the old dude leaves the school telling the young teacher
“you are far too young”
“you are of no use to me”
The old dude stumbles around for 10 years searching for what he is seeking, and winds up right back at the young teacher’s school. The old dude tells the younger teacher that he’s wasted 10 years of his life looking for what was right in front of him 10 years ago. The teacher refuses to accept the old dude, telling them that
“you are too old”
So with respect to seniority, we’ve now got the additional variable of physical age, and we can add to that individual ability. Perceptions of equality, and how we calculate it.
Behind /= Ahead
Ahead =\ Behind
I know I know…no one wants to get lost/be lost. But getting rid of options may leave a void. So let us leave lost right where it is in the event we find ourselves there again. Finding lost just might help us to better find found.

Got a quick question for ya…
Q: How do you approach things in a library?
The information is there, but you can’t go deep until you find what you are looking for.
How you approach things is prolly important.
^Depeche Mode Blue Dress^
But wait, Sufism is a bunch of nonsense from the Middle East!
The lands of terrorists and terrorism!
Welp, I’m pretty sure that one of my elementary school teachers used to read stories from this book when I was a kid, so we’re talking sometime between 1976/1978, because I remember the teacher. Sometime in either 2014 or 2015, I stumbled across an audio copy of this book on YouTube, and was floored by the coincidence seeing as how I’d completely forgotten about this book and where I’d originally heard some of it’s stories.
Considering that I was knee deep in syncs, synchs, synching, and synchronicity back in 2014/2015, but was completely alone and had no one to talk to, let’s us now here in 2019 reflect and take a peek at a bit from the introduction page of the book A Veiled Gazelle: Seeing How To See, and see if we can make some connections with old and new. See if there is something that I may have missed as far as “a direct connection” or whatever in the fuck may have led to my being completely incompetent.
“And among the wondrous things is a veiled gazelle: A Divine Subtlety, veiled by a state of the Self, Referring to the States of those who know. Unable to explain their perceptions to others, they can only indicate them to whoever has started to feel something similar…”
Muhiyuddin ibn Arabi: The Interpreter of Desires
So that’s the first part of the Introduction page on the book. Let us see who the fuck this Ibn Arabi is, and see if we can see when they wrote about/tried to describe what seems to be a textbook description of “syncs and syncing”.
Born 26 July 1165. Died 16 November 1240.
This dude was writing about weird coincidence/weird events/synchronicity 800 years ago? Thank God for Jung, eh? Would prolly never have made that connection without some lenses to see in that/those directions. But let us continue on with the Introduction, and see what Idries Shah himself has to say on the topic.
‘“The veiled gazelles, or shrouded deer, (Dhabiyun mubarqa’un) referred to by Ibn Arabi are the perceptions and experiences indicated by those who have them to those who have some inkling of them. ‘Veiling’ in Sufi parlance, indicates the action of the subjective or ‘commanding” self, which partly through indoctrination and partly through base aspirations prevents higher vision.’
‘Sufi poetry, literature, tales and activities are the instruments which, when employed with insight and prescription rather than automatically or obsessively, help in the relationship between Sufi and pupil, towards the removal of the veils.”’
Woah nelly! Did I understand that correctly? These “veiled gazelles” are actually roadblocks?
Makes sense tho
Most of the “syncs” that I personally have experienced could be equated to rain at an outdoor event. Nails in the road on the highway of life. A huge pimple on your face the morning of your wedding day. Road Signs turned the wrong direction to intentionally lead you away from where you are trying to get to.
Q: Do questions exist in the absence of adversity?
The “automatically or obsessively” bit gives us some breathing room tho. Gives us some options. Allows us to scrub our subjectivity, and question as to why we label things and events as we do.
He’s got some cool stuff for learning. For those so inclined.

^Scratch-D Vs. H-Bomb – Red Pill (Original Mix)^
It’s now Sunday the 19th of May, and the subject of reincarnation came up last night. I’ll give you, the reader, a straighter answer than I gave the person I was speaking with last night, and that is,
I don't fucking know
I can imagine all kinds of reasons for reincarnation being quite practical. Such as, if you want to know what it is like to be a worm, crawling along, minding your own business, doing your thing, then suddenly someone comes along, picks you up, and sandwiches you into a piece of paper and shoves that paper into an envelope?
*Ah, he DMed me the Depeche Mode song, ‘cos of the missive, Clicky…*
Welp, reincarnation could provide you some firsthand insight into what that experience is like. Many people scoff at the concept of reincarnation, but these same people might be wholly sold on the idea of legacy. That’s kinda the idea of SoPi-O and SoPi-M. The same or similar energies and motions, but traveling in different directions.
Wait…I’ve gotten sidetracked. I started writing this yesterday morning with the intention of writing and thinking about SoPi-M, but I’ve not gotten to it yet.
Hrmmm...what to do?
