From The Underground

From The Underground

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Exit From The Matrix, click here.)

These are quotes from an ongoing multiplying expanding in every direction work, The Underground.

“Most people who engage in politics do so for the hope of attaining power, or for the friction between opponents. The friction is most frequent payoff. It satisfies because it stands in for art, which is the conscious invention of elements that wouldn’t ordinarily exist side by side. Notice this polarized proximity of elements is also a staple of alchemy. Alchemy is the transmutation of what is comfortably a “snoozing neighborhood” into a higher disjunction. Disjunction is always more open than symmetry. Symmetry is eventually boring.”

“There is a question people can ask themselves. What can I do to relieve my deepest boredom? That is a very productive inquiry. It shatters enclosures. It seeks open spaces that haven’t yet been beset by solutions.”

“Suppose, for example, the universe has the answers to 54678796578 specific questions. It would then be exposed as a machine. Now, if the mind has a habit of asking and answering questions, it is a close relative of the universe. This connection is called mind control. Perhaps not right away, but eventually.”

“Don’t worry about what other people do. They generally tie themselves to a railroad track and wait for the train. They are on that diminishing adventure. At best, they try to make their approach to the track interesting for others. Admit that you’re clairvoyant. Don’t be ashamed. You can see the climax before it happens. Go elsewhere. Find something else to do. Make it more exciting than the collision on the track. If you can, you’re possibly on your way to becoming an artist.”

“Sometimes people ask me what I’m doing. What is my goal? Here is an approximate answer. I’m running a school of imagination. It has no curriculum in the usual sense. It has no content. Content is what imagination has already achieved. I’m interested in what imagination has yet to invent. But that sentence has no application unless people access and deploy their imaginations. Therefore, it is the purpose of the school. It is enhanced by the fact that what imagination can do is limitless. What people can create and invent is endless. Now we’re talking about something interesting. At last.”

“The future is more ‘complicated’ than people think it is. First of all, it’s completely unwritten. Second, you invent the future you want. But as you do this, you discover more of what you want. Then you invent that. The cycle continues to widen. Gladly, it never halts. And that is the only reason the future never ends.”

    I continue to find the daily emails utterly fascinating and inviting to deeper, critical thinking. Thank you.

    I agree with you. But, sometimes, an individual comes along, an individual who sees his country going down the tube, and wants to give his country a last chance to survive. An individual with a huge imagination and creativity skills, that believes he can do it.


    “You invent the future you want. But as you do this, you discover more of what you want. Then you invent that.” (Jon)

    I would like you to be more specific on that quote:

    Let’s say, for instance, that an individual decides to create a garden in his front yard. The Police comes along and arrest him and fines him. He doesn’t have the money to pay the fine, so he ends up in jail. The guy loses his low paying job and is now sitting in jail, helpless for a few years, When he finally gets out of jail, no one wants to give him a job.

    So, he becomes a homeless person and he is unable to feed himself. Oh, sure, he could imagine a better future for himself in his mind, but the reality is that if he doesn’t eat for a few weeks, he will die of starvation. No matter how his imagination is strong creating a new future, he has to find a way to fix his present problem.

    I mean, if you cannot fix your present problems, how can you believe that you will be able to solve your future problems?

    I read somewhere, that a guy found a way to avoid dying of starvation, when he comes out of jail. He immediately robs a store, so he is back in jail. He says at least in jail, I have a place to live and food to eat. So sad.

    Jon, please write an article that clarifies what you really mean. I surely would appreciate it. I like what you write, but sometimes it seems almost too good to be true. Create a new future. It’s easier said than done most of the time, for most of the people. Imagination, creativity or not, some problems have to be solved immediately, not in the future.

    • If Caesar imposes taxes or limits behaviour, don’t let that stop you giving to God what is due to God – ie: take whatever practical actions in the direction of your desire or passion are available now. The primary movement of inspiration is gardening, growing and husbanding plants or vegetables – be that imagination and grow that in whatever ways are available AND be aligned and attentive to all inspirational movement because synchronicity is not causal along the lines of the personality structure. Grow seed sprouts – maybe a zen garden is allowed? The key is desire, passion excitement and one’s commitment an persistence in aligning in it. That then will raise issues of worth, or negatively defined self as a result of conditioning. If you are worth it, it is your knowing or self-honesty that reveals this as a true foundation to act from. You see it is living the life you have and are rather than creating processes that wait on neverland conditions.
      It is too good to fit in phoney truths.
      Definition is the false rigidity that creates blocks. Look more closely at how you are defining yourself with regard to whatever the situation is. The recognition and full ownership of conditioning is the awakening presence (of you) that simply FEELS and knows alignment or indeed recognizes what has NO belonging in you. The doing is not a process of getting rid of anything but to do whatever you do out-from who you truly now know and feel yourself to be.
      Be aware that you have in a sense already created a complex pattern of denials and disguise by which to limit your power that has become second nature. The persona is a mask. Re-aligning with the true of you is not a struggle but a decision – and an ongoing embrace of your Now – which unfolds the fulfilment of your strongest thoughts and desires – whether that is apparent to your conscious self or not. If you are busy focussing on what you don’t want while seeming to be in what that presents itself as, then that negative is running undercurrent to the apparent positive.

      This is my offering into your consideration. You are the one who feels for resonance and relevance to whatever theme you are living/exploring. So if anything is meeting your desire, it is part of your willingness to imagine and embrace.

      There is always the option to focus on all the reasons why you cannot live the life you choose. But your past conditioning has already set that up and it doesn’t work for you no matter how much you deny yourself to conform – so that’s why you are reading Jon’s Raps 😉
      Challenges are not merely outside forces. One has to look within and without. I find this exciting, at times very challenging. I wouldn’t have it any other way – regardless the reflected experience of difficulty. I’m not here to wrestle with the mirror but rather to recognize self-image and be repurposed from that recognition – which feels like what Jon is calling inside and outside the matrix.

    everytime I check this blog out, usually I feel like almost dead-dying and coming here as last resort. leaving with a completely different state..I can’t thank enough mr Rappoport.


    So there I was beside myself, sitting next too, and on top of what I had been. Around the corner from my yesterdays. Without any planned tommorrows…and heading into the horizon of what I am not yet, and could be, before the honorable intention of what I don’t believe, inside the congruence of what can possibly be next in this existance.
    For a while maybe not for a while, tempted into a understanding of not knowing exactly were I am going and for why I should or should not go there for some other reason?
    And so I beat down the door of nonsense and sense in hopes of exploring the conundrum of what this might not be. Possibly stirring in me an adulation for the sacredness of what I have not yet achieved, in a new place inside the old used place that once was a new place so very long ago.

    Maybe in forgetting that I am on the border of what was and will become as long as I don’t encourage the aspirations of another on top of what once was, me, and could be me again in another time but this time.

    And so the future alights, exposed as nothing until I arrive at the place that I use to call home but is now and forever simply a thought reduced inside of me. And that in it’s intent will set fire to ackowlegement that I am not, and forever will be, and without a doubt I am…me.

    Sometimes at night and during the day after long contemplation on a saturday; saturdays always seemed like the day after yesterday before the morrow and marrow of new an unforboding and uncalled for existance. Arising and so I will not pray to that, that does not pray to me, but I will prey on; like a lion eating the spring gazelle in the morning dew of a ancient sun not so long ago, were paintings on a osidian construct in a hole in the mountain will forever cause me to perambulate to the next something, or…I will just sit down and smell the yellow sun.

  6. Post note: Actually an overly verbose poem about nothing.
