The position for us in the body of Mankind reminds me of the terror that Gurdjieff talked about, the Russian Doll connectivity that renders us as energy beings oft bewildered as we grapple with the ancient control mechanisms of materiality and its collective dynamic.
When the body of an addict dies, most of the material stuff on a cellular level is viable, but the life-force seeps away.
So with Mankind and the mechanical protocols of the necessary systems of control that utilitarian imperatives have produced to manage essential services for masses of people.
The possibility of Human leadership overriding protocols when necessary can often seem indistinguishable from a dictator’s take over of the body politic.
Are Trump and Johnson part of God’s cure for the collapsing orthodoxy or are they the 4th Reich?
I have grappled with God to get Him to be clear with me.
But you’re right, the tricky bit for a person and more so for Corporations and Nations, the tricky bit is to accept that they are ill and not to blame.
The body of Mankind could to all intents and purposes die suddenly and soon. That is the irreducible message that I have been giving for nearly ten years.
It is a message given by Attenborough at the UN recently but using a different vernacular.
I know my message is almost impossible to receive practically, what are we to do with it?
There is an almost impregnable issue of Grace that attends the survivability or lack of survivability when looking at the millions of successful recovery stories in the 12 Step possibility over the last 85 years. Why do some people survive and ten times more never even get through to the first few steps, even after landing at the doors of recovery?
What’s more, how can any analysis of this mystery be made practical enough to guide people living in the dying body of an addictive system today?
In a common or garden addict, the body gives up even trying to communicate with its Executive function.
The fat body stops saying that it’s full, the drunk body never has time for a hangover, the gambler never stops long enough to tally up, the religion addict collapses into terrorism, the sex addict keeps blowing up the bubbles of their particular form of anaesthesia and on and on.
So, is there a common denominator across the different forms of personal Addiction that can give a clue as to how to suggest people might act when waking up to the fact that they’re trapped inside the body of an addictive system?
First and foremost, don’t panic. When the body truly knows it’s in trouble there seems to be a direct connection to Spirit that animals enjoy.
As people we need to let the leaders know that they’re ill, not bad, not stupid …. just ill.
This is the first step.
In my practice I have treated many previously successful people who truly had no idea why their previously successful strategies were now killing them.
Only when they truly accepted that they had a disease did their shoulders relax and all of their formidable will-power could then be unhooked from their disease and reconnected to their recovery.
Those that couldn’t accept that they were ill, died.
