Now is the possibility of meeting. Now is the moment of freeing up the bearings of a transmission of possibility that have become seized up with the historical despairing of our very template.
As Rumi said in a similar message in the 13th century:
Come, come, whatever you are, it doesn’t matter
Whether you are an infidel, an idolator or a fire worshipper,
Come, our convent is not a place of despair,
Come, even if you violated your swear
A hundred times, come again.
There is an irony that a helper seems so often to be of no help whatsoever, that is only explicable if it can be understood that the template of physical/mental/spiritual often becomes adulterated.
So if spiritual help is analysed by the mental realm it may seem to be nonexistent, if mental help is applied to a physical problem it is often not understood, if a physical sanction is applied to physical behaviours without regard to a mental or spiritual disease being at play, then the results can be calamitous.
Irony: a state of affairs or an event that seems deliberately contrary to what one expects and is often wryly amusing as a result. “the irony is that I thought he could help me” · ”one of life’s little ironies” synonyms: paradox, paradoxical nature, incongruity, incongruousness, peculiarity (definitions from web search)
So, when I say that I’ll wait for the invitations to come rolling in …. perhaps the inevitable irony that attends discourses like the one above may become clear.
1. Unconscious unconsciousness.
2. Unconscious consciousness.
3. Conscious unconsciousness.
4. Conscious Consciousness.
Number 1 is our failing orthodoxy.
Number 2 is when the heart starts throwing stuck-addiction at the machine mind to bring it to its knees.
Number 3 is Step 1, 2 & 3 of the 12 Step Programme.
Number 4 is arriving at Step 11 of the 12 Step Programme.
