Connections of Condition

One Father

Three Mothers

Earth, Nature and of The Universe.

This Quaternity of Eternity

Holds and is embodied.

In my life

There are three children

From three mothers.

All were loved, are loved still.

The first born from Nature

My son,

My first daughter from Earth,

My second daughter from The Universe.

One day we shall remember

One day the mothers shall recall

Until then, the Universe bears all

And the children at least know their father,

Somewhat.

Love – personal asides

I remember a story that was written about Christ asking God for some physical manifestation that might signify the power of the Love of God.
God, in the story, makes it clear that really Christ didn’t need to ask for that kind of physical phenomenon to appear, that even He should be careful.
Christ seemingly persists, whereupon there is a huge explosion and a huge crater is left in the ground.
Whatever the provenance of the story, I mention it here to put Love into context.
Some years ago when I was training to be a counsellor, my wife joked as I left the house to travel to London, that I should be careful of the females in the group. I protested my freedom from entangled thinking, but she said seriously, “you can’t choose who you fall in love with.”
As a man who has wrestled with the spiritual fact that The One and The Many are united by Love, I am a case history that reflects many of the futile attempts of Mankind to control Love, but whereas many still pretend to be in charge of their relationship with Love, I simply live in submission to this Highest Power.
Thankfully because Mercy and Compassion predominate as promised, then my many mistakes and misunderstandings around Love have been and are being resolved.
For people who approach God, as Love, then the animal interfaces of universal instincts are always placed into difficulty and history is full of cult disaster stories.
For those who merely seek power over others, then their animal instincts are similarly challenged, but if without a sense of serving Love then fetish is introduced to try to buffer the power of life as the thinking function attempts to control its machinations.
Rituals of politics and of religion, of academia and medicine, all with their separate languages and costumes arrive in a culture that is trying to control the lives of those within it.
Powerful people have often had chaotic private lives as the exercising of influence over other people has been seen to have amplified their instinctive appetites causing great misuse of sexual energy.
I approach Love as a poet, yearning for inspiration and in that yearning there are great unknowns and much unpredictability.
My Muse sometimes can take form seemingly and She takes my breath away. It is no longer an age to be granted wives as were granted to my spiritual heroes.
So, in any difficulty, as long as my love remains unrequited, honesty in expressing feelings can both keep me free from hypocrisy in my disclosures and my poetry, as well as Love can keep making a fool of me as I fight to stay true to myself and to maintaining my monogamy.
Worlds, eras and epochs however, are defined by requited Love, for that is the primal Cause.

Scarab musings

I can’t create a shit rolling dung beetle
Ex nihilo
So, what right have I got to criticise
Anything?
God’s loneliness
The intensity and immensity of His aloneness
To create this Universe of otherness
Of Motherness and Brotherness
Of Fartherness and Insisterness
To say to David,
“Oh David, My yearning for them
Is greater than their yearning for Me.”
This lonliness is the ‘why’, to all the hurt,
For, whose hurt is it?
Who bears all the ignorant action
That threatens to destroy the Earth
For power’s sake?
I heard the challenge of who yearns the most,
If there is any explanation for my life
To those who scratch their heads in disbelief,
It is that I said to God’s ‘yearning’ claim,
“Really …. ok, we’ll see about that then!”
And I set about beating God at His own game.
Impossible of course,
For His yearning makes the Universe.
But the numbers that numb yearning
For the One,
Whether numbers of pounds Sterling
Or US dollars,
Or numbers of houses
Or conquests
Or qualifications
Or clever answers,
These numbers never numbed the pain
Never made their claim upon me
Strongly enough
To dissuade me from my path of calamity.
Eventually, He relented,
Granted me refuge,
As you might spare an ant on the path.
Yet, sometimes I give God a belly laugh,
Unexpected,
Breath-taking.
I’m not saying I’m anything special.
I’m simply saying that whatever you
Think about this Tale of Two Cities,
This ‘best of times and worst of times’ time ,
I’m simply saying that there is
“More to it”.
That it’s worth the yearning,
That though my yearning that your yearning
To match God’s yearning, might be greater than your present yearning,
That it’s possible to start
Right here, with abandon.
“Abandon yourself to God, as you understand God,” (© AA)
But know this,
People only abandon ship
When they actually believe that it’s sinking.

Heaven and Hell

William Blake wrote of “Heaven and Hell” and his work is mysterious and enigmatic.

Every generation addresses this matter.

God connects the seven levels of Hell and the seven levels of Heaven.
In the Christian Creed, Jesus Christ is described as descending into Hell, then ascending into Heaven.
Jesus Christ is met personally in the heart, the centre that is transcending, connecting the ascending and descending, holding all Love, stopping all Hell from breaking loose.
This reality is always present on Earth.
When T.S. Elliot wrote of the centre not holding in one of his poems, he was speaking of his feeling that this connection was lost. It was his personal feeling.
The sentinel fact is that, in this era, the centre holds.
The centre is now secured in the global 12 Step Fellowships wherein in this very instant, people are sharing with humour their darkest experiences of separation from The Holy Spirit, i.e. Hell, and the way in which they became conscious of their never absent connection with That Holy Spirit, i.e Heaven, the illusion therefore of that separation as a disease, and the Paradise of now improving their conscious contact with One Love.
Salaam. All power is in Love. The centre holds.

Song Sung You

How to keep open when the energy seems so discordant?
A friend asked me this question today. I found myself quoting the Islamic prayer, “God, I seek refuge in You, from You.”
This is the most powerful prayer that there is in my experience, where Love is the only refuge anyway.
Then I listened to the word, “protect”.
I then remembered Jonah and the message of the story that there is no where to run, that when I think that I’m running away, actually, because there’s only One, I’m running toward.
Then it appeared to me that the greatest protection is to drop all detection.
As it says in The Qur’an, if God sends you a test, nothing can stop it arriving; if God sends you a gift, nothing can step it from arriving.
There is no detective work needed about this world. There is One doing.
Your world is like it is because you are like you are.
My world is like it is because I am like I am.
Change is possible. “Be the change”, as Gandhi said, but remember that only One has the power to do, that’s for the asking.
No blame is necessary and God doesn’t make mistakes, they’re your job, that’s our task, everything is perfect.
To connect the ascending with the descending is transcending, then it’s simply a matter of how wide your circle is, how much your sphere can encompass.
Amo, Amas, Amat, Amamus, Amatis, Amant.

Rise up

The inner war perfectly described, the necessity of material action ‘after’ the illusion has been destroyed. Imminent action is required of us, solitude and renunciation is not enough according to Krishna.
Whatever the appearance of my utterances, my words about the practicality of spirituality, the practicability and development of material action in the present moment, is rooted in my direct experience of the eternal Singularity meeting Its own material action.
“Rise up I love you” seems a timeless order to any material entity downtrodden by authoritarians’ disbelief and the broken lovelessness of cultural dissonance.
It’s how that rising up is to happen.
The old junta can only see outer war, this literal slaughter may come, it’s happened before after all.
My words are about the possibility of a healing, of an inner rising up of meaning, of an individual escape from fear and resentment that then brings about a collective change. This is the message of Carl Jung.
Is this possible?
If the inner war is not fought individually, then the outer war is inevitable collectively, this has been the fact since Muhammad (pbuh) differentiated between the greater and lesser war in the message of Islam.
So, for centuries, the forces of collective plunder have done everything to stop the greater war and insist upon the monetary based lesser wars that form the history of our broken hearts.
Now, rise up and love as you are loved, is the battle cry of the changed person, the reality of every spiritual Messenger sent from your potential future.

I worship creation

The Devil is very clever. Everyone has God and the Devil inside according to the dervish, and for the dervish the way is to emulate Muhammad (pbuh) who said that for him his Devil had submitted.
So, in my arrival at a view, I am sensitive to any apparent Enlightenment that actually does not see the full worth of this extraordinary creation that is Mankind, that sees the mistakes of Mankind as somehow proving that it’s all gone wrong, that there is great delusion in relating to material creation, that God has got it all wrong.
There is sickness, the dervish says that God sends sickness to His favourites. So, because there is sickness, there is also the possibility of healing.
This healing of sickness is inherent in seeing the full majesty and beauty of Earth’s creation and of Mankind’s conscious self-awareness of Love as being an intrinsic part of Earth’s creativity – or else why bother with sacrificing time and effort to serve other people at all?
Spiritual teachings that subtly seek to return people to an inner place of quasi-happiness by maligning the messiness and disasters of peoples attempts to love, without first being clear about the overall worth of those efforts as being magnificent, are in fact satanic. The design of Mankind is not a mistake, the Prophetic principles that point to a conscious Source for everything do not diminish seeking to know other people in love to experience being. The spiritual principles are delivered to help heal when these efforts inevitably go wrong, for mistakes mean experience, experience calibrates conscience, conscience is the only arbiter of individuation in the wrestling match between the inner God and Devil that is our kindergarten psychic birthright.
Happiness is beingness. Beingness is not just an inner attainment, its beauty is messy, majestic, muddy, moody and magnificent.
The question to my left and right hands, to my psyche, the place of my angels, the place of my djinn, is the eternal question from “O God”, to God and the Devil, “now, will you bow down and worship that which I have created?”
My Devil says “yes”, (bows down).
God makes this world with both of His hands, they don’t often come together in a person until life has unfolded plausibly, that is, to a point of personal applause that has escaped from a teacher’s temporary clap-trap.

Light

Shedding tears
Shedding fears
Shedding the skin of old ways
Shedding light upon new days

The light that lightens
The light that brightens
Issues not just from the flame
Issues not just through the pane

Light transmits (from)
Light commits (to)
Sources are points of transmission
Mankind accepts Love’s commission

Or not.

ACID test.

Your current situation is measured in your conscience, or with-science, where science is simply what you know.
Conscience works with ‘energy in’ from an anode interface with the invisible singularity, Love, connected to the visible ‘energy out’ cathode interface, Worth.
When the relationship between Love and Worth becomes adulterated, then personal current or energy potential drops to a trickle charge. Whole swathes of people lose faith in Love and money completely overwhelmes Worth.
People then seek to augment their personal dynamic erroneously by stealing little bits of current from ‘other’ people, places and things.
This mistake all but destroys the personal and collective anode connections over time and the cults of celebrity manifest as a kind of quasi anode for people, thus further stealing what little trickle charge people personally have with the glaring arc lights of stolen celebrity popularity appearing to light up a cultural landscape with lightening flashes.
This unstable situation is not sustainable as can be witnessed presently in Earth’s cultural and climatic conditions.
The resolution to these “current” problems begins with individuals taking an honest inventory of their inner cathode and anode connections.
The conscience of a person is in how they speak to themselves in their inner diction, its health is in the steady sustainability of light as a function of guidance along a knowledge based journey of experience.
The therapy that can help restore a person and then eventually a collective, to a healthier more practical conscionable experience is brought into focus initially as an invitation to a conversation around Diction Resolution Therapy.

Interregnum Manners

Connection is that which connects precious to conscious with the two interfaces of conscience. Without these conscionable interfaces actually being connected as the reality of Human currency, the current or present moment, is forever disconnected. Then mere monetary currency usurps its purpose and pretends to be the answer to everything, the only currency.

The gap between you and me
The impossible possibility
The understood misunderstanding
The never to meet again, meeting
The centre holding, as
The movement of my wish
Turns into grants of our light,
Making the tears simply years
Meeting eternity’s calibration.
