Road to Damascus

So, what on earth is all this stuck-addiction© stuff on about?
Q. Do you want everyone on a 12 Step Programme?
A. No.
Q. Do you want to turn The Chisholme Institute into some kind of rehab?
A. No.

At a recent workshop weekend with Scilla Elworthy, I put forward a proposition that ‘peace’ was an inner place that could be built.
A fellow delegate said that Jerusalem meant ‘city of peace’.
I would like to begin here to extend this possibility of seeing anew the outer expectation of spiritual materialisation of prophecy at this turbulent time, by transforming any such outer Parousia expectation into an inner ‘Presence’ possibility.
The Greek word parousia simply means presence anyway.
The outer expectation of Parousia looks to the physical Damascus as a place of showdown and manifestation of a prophesied claimant of rôle.
The inner building of peace requires an inner ‘road to Damascus experience’ as a catalyst to a new beginning for an inner sight, a personal vision for an inner site for the building of an inner Jerusalem.
In the original version of the ‘road to Damascus experience’, Saul was rendered blind by a spiritual awakening that made Saul aware that in his lack, in his illness, he was persecuting people in a way that had to stop.
The inner Damascus experience is what the message of stuck-addiction© is about.
Stuck-addiction© both exposes the inner blindness of denial to both individual or systemic ‘Sauls’, it then restores the inner sight with a conscious contact of possibility for an inner building site to appear if an inner resolution to transform can be grasped.
