In these days of global distress around pandemic and the outbreak of wars, the Physical/Mental/Spiritual template which describes the Constitution of Mankind is exposed most clearly by the way in which millions of people have faced their own imminent destruction within the disease of Addiction and survived.
In this exposition of efficacy, there is a benevolent vernacular of possibility that can be extended into a global population that is facing the pandemic identified by Covid-19.
I have been writing in my blogs for seven years about the need to see the connection between personal and systemic illness as a way to navigate through these inevitable times.
This is a proven method to reduce anxiety and improve a sense of well-being:
Now is not the time to blame. Illness is not anyone’s fault. The Coronavirus is an illness description, Mankind is facing an illness. The “No Blame” portal is the first step for the global leaders to get through even within their mistakes, for mistakes are inevitable also, as inevitable as these times themselves.
Whatever the battling theories, whether Covid-19 is natural, from 5G, or even if it’s a germ warfare weapon deliberately or accidentally appearing in plain sight with a vaccine already existing, whatever the insanity prior, or physiological vulnerability that is current, it’s all still productive of an illness and now described within the paradigm of illness when viewed from the Singularity of Love.
In my previous experience, I have tried praying kidney stones away, I was pleased when the doctor arrived and my Consultant blasted them with a lithotripsy machine. When I contracted pneumonia some years ago after breathing in dust from a broken vacuum cleaner, I was pleased to accept the doctors’ ministrations in the fantastic UK NHS.
History is full of the excesses and mistakes of despots and wealth and power fixated pirates who have ended up ruling empires. There are also beneficent rulers who really loved their people and also amazing stories of prophets, saints and people who loved their God in their fellow beings.
At this time, whatever the outcome, each person faces their own particular door of trust, it is open and the only antidote to denial.
The leaders now must lead from their Oaths with the best information available to them however Mankind has arrived in this place, the body of Mankind has no choice now but to be led, the global health services and their incredibly talented and brave personnel have no choice but to work to the best of their knowledge and oath.
There is nothing much left for me to say. This illness is now speaking for itself. What I can repeat however from the book Alcoholics Anonymous is that:
Without help it is too much for us. But there is One who has all power — that One is God. May you find Him now!
This is the nuclear sentence that connects the 12 Step Programme to every Message from The Unseen that eventually became a religion. It is the only hope for anyone in these days of global illness.
When experienced folk in a 12 Step Fellowship experience the phenomenon of a newcomer entering a Group Meeting in a state of loud dishevelled illness, then they as a core connect deeply in their Step 11 ….
Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.
…. and “hold the spiritual space” as the Group does Its work.
That’s all there is to do at this time, until the crisis passes, whatever your spiritual journey to this point, “hold”. There’ll be time for the lessons later. “No Blame …. Hold.”

Unity, Service, Recovery.
The denial mentioned over and over in Surah Rahman in The Qur’an is the same denial exposed by the sacred disease of addiction. Mankind is like an addict. In our grief at being torn away from Union into this seemingly disunited life on Earth, the Sufi says that all are in grief.
The stages of grief are denial, anger, bargaining, depression, acceptance.
The Sufi says there are 5 pillars on The Way. These are the antidotes to grief: trust, certainty, patience, resolution, veracity.
