Thank you for visiting this blog. The above Facebook link to my post there brings some ongoing clarity to the work here on WordPress over the last nearly nine years.
There have been 16,518 visitors to this blog since 2014. I am getting ever closer to writing a book and without this practice I know it couldn’t happen.
There is much to be optimistic about during these times of era change, times actually of paradigm change as we move from The Addictive System into The Living Process System as Anne Wilson Schaef so beautifully crafted in her writing.
Physical cause and effect as an explanation of events fails to take account of the spontaneity of accumulated presence that accrues to a person and to collectives within the metaphysical realm.
That a person or a collective does not believe that the metaphysical place even exists as an invisible realm in no way limits or impacts upon the metaphysical influence upon events that materialise then into the physical realm.
Because the physical realm is concerned about the control of events and the metaphysical realm is about the serving of events, there is always tension from the official places of physical authority when anything new occurs which is out of that authority’s ability to explain or control any such occurrence.
What is the vent from which events appear?
Can a word like convent, that leads to a possible understanding of how conventions arise in society, ever escape from its religious associations?
Equally, can the word advent ever be correlated to its actual whole potential to create a sense of adventure when it lands into the psyche of one who might encounter the word in the run up to Christmas?
There have been recorded efforts in the past of people trying to find the remains of Noah’s Ark, just as there have been efforts to prove whether Jesus Christ actually exists as an actual historical person and therefore as an actual invisible presence.
Such efforts are doomed to fail, for the exoteric might deny that it is stuck in literalism, but history shows that the paradox of the esoteric messenger is often catalyst for massive resistance.
The actual Ark carries the message of the connectivity of all opposites or pairs in all places visible and invisible …. in 21st century language, the “withness” of “contact” is the tact that is built in the practicality that is “Suf”, a built place with tactics of inspiration and intuition from which a Sufi comes from only when it is experienced as a coming together of two worlds, a Jam. Only then is the flood of information transmissible into a survivable experience of “being”.
The fact that you are reading this blog post indicates that you are giving the appearance to what might seem like you are doing something about any potential escape from imprisonment. However, it may be that you are simply receiving a key destined to be given to you from the potentiality that we have always been.
In the advent of something different happening to you then your situation can change. What this means is that the word advent is a word of considerable importance as it suggests a movement toward an event.
Yet, as an event, you have already happened in total potentiality. So, your advent-age and your event-age are equal but opposite.
This means that even though from the moment you appeared on Earth you have been travelling back to the vent from which you issued, you have not been aware of that fact. So you have simply prolonged your event-age until you first got the glimmerings of the temporal u-bend involved in the arrival of a recognition unique to you, of there actually being any advantage at all to you of responding to a spiritual message of Love.
Maybe you could read that again slowly.
The advent of your personal journey to your own inner crib, whilst in the donkey of your body, realising the arch of potential function that can connect your left and right brain hemispheres – this is a journey indeed.
The Di-vine is the One creating Its otherness in matter, all that a person is invited to do is to fight to experience the destruction of separation for themselves.
This is very difficult for the historically led collectives, for they are led by increasing the di-vision back to a material singularity of authority and conditioning in order that rulers can rule.
The divorce of belief and knowledge in the whole of a person is a diagnostic that heals the gnostic eventually. Most people marry belief and knowledge necessarily in practice in their subprogramming to do anything with confidence, for instance driving a car or improving upon any skill for themselves.
However, when it comes to the single-minded point of their whole existence, then death stubbornly refuses to be married to birth because of the piratical depth of the divide and rule programming that places everyone in a life or death battle.
Then ultimate belief in Universal Consciousness becomes almost impossible as that ultimate belief is relegated to Father Christmas, the Tooth Fairy and to a Big Goddy somewhere in the sky on the other side of never….
So then, because knowledge can’t function practically without belief, this ultimate schism renders knowledge of life itself a huge mountain that won’t open like in Aladdin because nobody believes in anything that can unlock the treasury inside knowledge with an “open sesame” 😉
Because of this separation of knowledge and belief at the ultimate existential point of belief, a point hijacked by religions, then toxic shame in increasingly large numbers of people becomes an almost insoluble inner hell for them.
The mind, even in its contorted place of trying to control sense input and instinctive input as well as having to respond to being controlled by societal systems, can still just about stay connected within the words ‘guilt and innocence’.
However, when the whole body and mind of a person is gripped with shame, the mind cannot reach and serve this inner desolation without help. For shame is very close to the expression “disgrace” and the only antidote to this sensation is “Grace” and the mind cannot conjure up this word at all.
Grace, like light, has to be received and only in Its reception can disgrace be made whole by Grace with a growth of being
So, in May 2019 the quoted UK Guardian article cited “an epidemic of poor mental health” appearing across ranks of staff in the higher education system of Britain.
Since then of course, factor in Covid-19 and the conditions on the ground are now a calamity almost beyond orthodox analysis.
I use the term orthodox analysis advisedly, because it is the orthodox structures of medical diagnosis and societal analysis that are now shown to be simply part of The Addictive System that is now in utter collapse.
My work over the last eight years has been to build upon the work of Anne Wilson Schaef whose work is photographed above. My development of Diction Resolution Therapy stands because of the urgency of the situation mentioned above.
Over and over again my working out of this message that, The Addictive System is destroying itself, has been and is the purpose of my blogs and my social media postings. Even to the point of the Universe arranging a headline that appears from anywhere on the face of the planet when a person searches in Google for unseen leader of the world …. go ahead …. try it for yourself!!
As this sub-pandemic of Covid-19 carries on imposing curfews on Mankind’s collective affairs unheard of without bombs and bullets flying, it maybe behoves us all to realise that global cultures are held in this stasis not wholly because of the efforts of our leaders, but rather despite them.
When the main source of supposed healing, the drug companies, are found to be corrupted and complicit with willful misdiagnosis and mistreatment of the primary disease of Addiction, then the challenges facing the delivery of my message is put into perspective …. the blog post below highlights this.
The disease of Addiction is described by the psychiatrist M. Scott Peck as a sacred disease. The 12 Step Programme describes this same spiritual malady as only having a spiritual solution.
So, because the message now is that all global cultures are spiritually sick in The Addictive System within which Covid-19 is but a symptom and that because the conditions facing Mankind are not just mental and physical, then there is hope that behaviour can change.
The ancient spiritual principles contained in the 12 Steps pull together the broken behaviours in people and then therefore in collections of people. This is portrayed in the schematic below and the yellow separation marks are removed as the 12 Steps are internalised and connected, Universal consciousness is contacted and individually deepened in conscience.
Then the challenge simply is how to deliver this message and where to deliver it where it has any chance at all of becoming acted upon. The next blog post was written over seven years ago wrestling with just such a challenge.
I shall convey this posting once more through the modern channels of contact with the system. I know that the message is to be denied, God knows that is not my problem. My job is to simply carry the message.
The first and most important step is to admit and name the disease, both in ourselves and in our society. Anne Wilson Schaef’s brilliant and compassionate dissection of addictive behavioural patterns leaves us no option but to see this truth. However, the message of this book is essentially optimistic, because once the process of awareness is triggered, healing begins.
(Citation from the back cover of the book photographed above, When Society Becomes an Addict.)
Correctives and perspectives Agendas and dependants Powers and principalities Dilemmas and calamities The loneliness of high Office. Evil is there, not hidden at all, Christ said, “this is not My world”, No one saw Him, but the demons did, The demons knew Him. Hell is simply separation from consciousness. This world then is hellish for most, Rulers preferring hell to serving in heaven. This world is not my world, I am in it, but not of it. This world is a place of purpose, It is placed here in time and space On purpose, to grow souls. This world is perfect now, According to its design According to its remit It is not a place to worry about It is not a place that can be destroyed It is a place that can make you It is a place that can break you. This world is a differentiation system Coordinated and coordinating Irreducible and ineffable, Capable of anything, of everything, Created by a Cosmic Intelligence. You, you are not here by accident. There are invisible beings and Man here, There are shape shifting Djinn There are gatekeepers and guides All described in The Qur’an, David Ike and the other theorists Describe nothing new, The Djinn and Man are here, now. There are believing Djinn There are believing members of Mankind, There have never been many Human kind. This world is to develop Human kind, This world is a way to become Human, being. Does that help you understand the media Does that help you see hellish history In a different way? So, it’s your call, only you know you. Are you part of this planet’s furniture, Or are you just passing through On your way home? Love ❤ is the only pass out of this place.
The Latin words “inter” meaning “between” and “currere” meaning “run” blend together to give us the word “intercourse”.
The sexual hijacking of this word began in 1788 when the habits of Mary Queen of Scots were immortalised in a biography. Today, most people associate intercourse to mean sexual intercourse.
However the word intercourse is a vitally important word to help people in a recovery from the disease of stuck and broken addiction.
Because the whole of Mankind is now powerlessly broken apart indisputably in a way that hitherto has been “managed” by ridiculously small forces, there is a crack in the prison wall. There is a way to see the course of events more clearly, to see the overall picture with a clearer resolution, to inter-act then more bravely, more creatively.
These small numbers of people that have historically hidden their real powerlessness over actually being able to control the huge numbers of people that they have ruled over, except by scaring the people subjugated to them with the loss of physical liberty or with wars, torture and death, these small numbers of people are exposed currently to be both powerless and unable to manage their political constitutions effectively.
Intercourse involves a toing and froing, a certain wrestling within a container of mutual respect amongst participants or even inner thoughts, that have oppositional positions and/or identities. In Mankind’s physical sexual intercourse, love is the container par-excellence and legal consent is the final arbiter to the sanctity of the act of physical intercourse, without which there is ultimately only the calamitous descent into rape.
In Mankind’s social intercourses, both public and private, truly manners maketh Man, a way of guaranteeing that consent is implicit in the inevitable toing and froing that happens between people privately and publicly. When manners become ill, then this illness opens the way to the rapacious interactions that then erupt between people in their intimate relationships and between systems in their political and financial relationships.
When social and political intercourse turns rapacious, though it seems easier to deny and hide than its physical relation, it’s actual effect is massively more destructive.
I have worked with people to try to help them to heal themselves from the trauma arising from physical abuse. I have heard that the words screamed at them during the physical attack stayed with them in a far more destructive way long after their body’s bruises had faded.
So with the verbal engagements of the participants and recipients within social and political intercourses, these bodies of proposition, argument and potential resolution can only safely wrestle together where there is openness, respect, humour, a willingness to be altered by the appearance of the new birthing of ideas rather than the maniacal defence of old entrenched positions.
Where ill-will, lies, hidden agendas and fear abound, whether in private lives or in public and systemic lives, when love disappears and the bottom line deliberately destroys its own top line, then all hell eventually breaks loose.
Hell simply means separation. When the bottom line is severed from its own top line.
Spiritual intercourse is the ultimate toing and froing that a mere handful of Human beings have been evidenced as having remained on Earth to share their result of actually having achieved a successful consummation of that particular deific Union.
This being said, even though the possibility of the sanctity of spiritual intercourse is often denied by those insisting upon the supremacy of their particular academic definition of intercourse, the previous progeny of such a spiritual Union rule the actual eras of Mankind’s experience past and present.
So today, as ill-will abounds amongst the global political class, as collapse continues to reverberate across the global financial class, as disease threatens to collapse the academic class, the contraceptive blocks that reduce global political debate to so much entrenched partisan masturbation have to be removed.
However, even if the contraceptions are to be removed from Mankind’s social, financial and political intercourses, just how the new wedding of these arrangements are to turn out so that truly new conceptions can be born into existence from the these new conjoinings will be wholly in the hands and hearts of those leaders who can hear this Spiritual diagnosis of their present condition.
The invitation to this diagnosis is clear. If you are not clear, ask, for a definition of intercourse with all and any of the facts of life is not enough, contact has to happen!
Einstein is purported to have said,
“Everything should be as simple as it can be, but not simpler”. “If you can’t explain it to a six year old, you don’t understand it yourself”.
These two quotes attributed to Einstein if true, speak to the need perhaps, of practice to make difficult matters appear simple – then to practicing communication once having reached a certain level of actual experiential attainment, of being, in that which is to be communicated.
I can communicate simply now about consciousness, should I choose to answer anyone who might care to ask me a question, especially if the question were to be asked from the guileless place that a six year old can be found in 😉🕯️
Matthew 18:3 says
International Standard Version Then he said, “I tell all of you with certainty, unless you change and become like little children, you will never get into the kingdom from heaven.
The biblical reference points toward a change of heart, away from the contempt prior to investigation which is mentioned in the book Alcoholics Anonymous as the ultimate bar to progress.
Toward a change of heart where a creative imagination serves Consciousness in our consciences, when minds work to digest life experiences with the peristaltic necessity of joined opposites as depression and expansion are repaired then, without the need of antidepressants.
This video preempts Donald J. Trump’s run at the Office of President of the USA. In an animated stream of information from his life’s locker, he discloses a fact about his method of being a dealer.
He looked for victims (22:45 in the video)
This single inadvertent exposure of his predatory core modus operandi gives the clue to who he is and how he has operated all of his life and just how bankrupt the whole global financial system was and still is as Mr Trump came and went into and from global political leadership.
As he says, he loves a foreclosure.
Mr Trump instinctively and with cold-blooded attentiveness to detail describes in this video how he sees and does business, always on the look out for his next victim.
The US financial and political system was and still is, in foreclosure and Mr Trump simply transferred his predatory skillset.
The preceding Presidents simply prepared the ground for Mr Trump to take over the company of USA Inc., (the next victim) by their having presided over a global financial crash and a breakage of global political language that rendered the foundation of contract across the socioeconomic global structures virtually destroyed.
In this collapsing chaos Mr Trump found natural allies in the apolitical global billionaire class who are desperate to keep the broken system going. He found an ally in Mr Putin who had already established himself as the previous Official Receiver of the foreclosure of the USSR.
So, Mr Trump’s plans have unraveled ….
The global financial collapse is still happening ….
So a Spiritual Jubilee is the only course to steer now and this requires Spiritual Leadership if a complete existential disaster is to avoided.
Leaders unite forces, combine resources, collect disparate energies and return all temporary appearances into a resolution, into a focus, into a will that does what a leader decides to do.
Leadership is not an imposition of power, leadership is a position of power.
Light flowing through a prism shows that one light spreads into seven connected colours, synonymous with the seven musical notes, both expressions meet in the connecting middle of green and fah.
Einstein stated that E = mc², the one Energy connects to the many parts of materiality across the equals sign. Energy does not impose itself upon matter, it just connects.
So with Mankind, we all know at some place that we connect in our breathing, in our animality, in our common instincts. Yet being living parts of a metaphorical rainbow, of a metaphorical notated symphony, Mankind fights amongst itself when scallywags mislead the colours and the notes to hate each other.
How does this happen?
This breakdown of intrinsic harmony happens when an invitation is replaced by an imposition.
What does this mean?
It means that when a leader is not equal to the function of leadership, when a person is not connected in themselves to the One that is ever connected to Its own Many, then that leader imposes a false one of their own imagination upon a group situation. This divides a group into enmity and is the history of the last many thousands of years.
When a leader invites people to reconnect for themselves to One Source from their leadership being a living equals sign, then eventually such an invitation begins to have an effect, the invitation begins to do something.
In the Qur’an the words are very clear, they say do not try to impose the message of Oneness upon people, such an imposition is disastrous. The Qur’an asks people who have experienced such a Oneness for themselves, to simply carry a message of their experience and to leave the effects of such a message to the One Itself.
Similarly in the book Alcoholics Anonymous, the principle is established in precisely the same order. Carry a message of a personal experience of conscious contact with Oneness, then leave the effects of such a message to the One Itself.
So, The 12 Step Programme and The Qur’an say precisely the same when it comes to reconnecting the Many to the One by invitation, by attraction not promotion.
It is not necessary to name any further names, work history out for yourself.
Leadership connects opposites, establishes by description the actual order of existence so doesn’t have to create another fundamental order to try to hoodwink people into doing what they’re told to do.
Does this mean that there is no need for people ever to be made to do things that they don’t want to do?
What this means is that Oneness can never successfully be imposed upon masses of people as a tool of mass control. It means that this Oneness is what we are in now and that we have become disconnected in our conditioning which means that when conditions become naturally oppressive it seems that there is never any real resolution possible to individual or collective suffering.
Imposed political uniformity from an extracted theoretical cleverness that seeks to impose a relative equality because the equals sign of Einstein seems too impersonal is doomed to failure as is any such particularistic version of religion. Isn’t this our history?
So, this Unity Of Existence or Tawhid that the Sufi exists within, this Singularity of Will that is repeated in The Lord’s Prayer of Christianity, this Light upon Light that is Islam, this Great Fact that is not a theory but that is the AA 12 Step Programme, these described seas are then as an Ocean of Consciousness Itself within which all theories can be tested – this Ocean is Love.
So, a person of Union, whose conscience is united in Consciousness, is in Love, is Love.
When such a person of Union says to you, I love you, then the singular connectivity of such a transmission is unequivocal.
To put this in context, if any person were to say to a person of Union, I love you, then the person of Union could say, of course you do.
So, there is a criterion that can measure how close a person is to their own understanding of the Unity Of Existence as they experience their reception of these words written here, I love you.
I maintain that if you can recognise an immediacy of reply for yourself being that it is one of, of course you do, then this sheer equality of The Human, being you, is validated in Love, by Love, for you.
Other than this immediacy then, there can be exposed for you the theatre of the many dramatic performances of the journey toward your becoming to know for yourself that you are loved.
To know that you love and that you are loved in return is the pinnacle of a created awareness, as this awareness unites with Universal Consciousness to particularise in your conscience.
This Love heals all wounds, all traumas. This Love reconnects the physical, the mental and the metaphysical components of a person’s being. The physical exemplifies the number 3, the mental exemplifies the binary systems of 2, the metaphysical exemplifies the number one.
Mankind lives in systems that presently diagnose events as physical and political problems. The distresses of the nations and the environment are presented as mental/physical. This is exactly the same as a sick person, the symptoms are physical/mental. In both scenarios, the burgeoning material disrepair masks the actual source of the calamity – namely a metaphysical disconnect.
The challenge facing individuals and the collectives of individuals which are countries, the challenge is in the healing of executive function. Executive function can only work when willpower is healthily flowing.
A will is a singular phenomenon. Whether as a word to describe the single-minded application of energy along a chosen predictive pathway to solve a problem, or whether as a functional instrument to provide a resolution to a death, willpower and one are words that are inseparable i.e. they’re in union.
So, as Love wills to be known to Itself as the whole Universe, just so when a person is willing, then whether they know it or not they are trying to align with this Singular Force.
The more conscious a person becomes that their exercising of willpower cannot help but harmonise with this One Will if it is to be really real, then to just such an extent of this arriving of consciousness can they come to realise the imaginary or virtual nature of their past attempts at efforts of resolution for their existential problems.
Because God is One, it is the reason why when a person says to God, “show Yourself if You’re really there”, God can only reply, “I must decline.”
I am. We are. You are. You are. He/She/It is. They are.
So this 10 year old video, which has featured before in my blog, is still pertinent to what is happening in Britain today.
Before I start, I must say that I have no successful financial base from which to proselytise a new or better way to do business. In fact I suffer from a tangible current account insecurity presently and the only thing that my insight into the disease of stuck-addiction gives me is that my fear of financial insecurity is removed.
However, it has become clear to me that the forces acting upon the Executive function of the UK in its Brexit policy has rendered said Executive function into a very dark place that forces their acting like a very frightened using drug dealer might act just prior to them entering their rock-bottom.
80% of the UK’s GDP is locked into the service sector, a service sector that serves money and the financial services that depend upon money being seen as a commodity in itself, rather than merely the neutral connector of systems trading actual commodities within a market place of value and exchange.
So, because the financial crash of 2008, that Charlie Munger describes in the opening to this post, has effectively broken that illusory commodity position of money being able to trade against itself to make more of itself, the whole capitalist system globally has been stagnant for 12 years.
The UK already has faced criticism about the amount of allegedly irregular money that might have already flowed through London banks into shell companies and then into the UK domestic and commercial property markets. However, there is a deep desperation now globally around how money is to function in this new digital age given that it died many years ago giving us a zombie system that could implode at any time.
At some level, not necessarily at the level that the conspiracy theorists might like to imagine exists where a man sits in a chair stroking a black cat surveying the world through 50 flickering screens, the above diagrammed financial Armageddon has resulted in the UK having to break itself free of EU regulations so that it can become a Caymen Island like magnet for any kind of money that it can get its desperate dealer hands on.
So, against all political principles of democracy’s rules of adversarial engagement, the UK has had to invoke it’s feudal foundations of power to ram-raid its attempt to regain control of the main commodity component of 80% of its GDP, namely money.
This is the disease of stuck-addiction in all of its executive function collapse, in all of its disconnect from conscience, in all of its destruction of linguistic coherence, in all of its destruction of the hosting body, in all of the final stages of disrepair and dissonance.
In tbe breakdown of the final UK EU Brexit talks, it is now being made clear that what is diagnosable as the UK’s decade long stuck-addiction bender has meant that an inevitable huge manipulation of the body politic has occurred, a manipulation that is in the final stages of smashing the common sense of ordinary people completely.
It is now being made clear that despite the appearance of Executive hand-wringing and amidst huge fortunes being made by the UK’s well connected wealthy in the bucket shop system that Charlie Munger derided as a sewer in his talk, a diseased yet subliminally completely planned no deal Brexit is happening.
My blogging and social media work over the last 7 years as well as my efforts with Diction Resolution Therapy have forecast this state of national self-harm, but it gives me no pleasure to say that I told you so.
Covid-19 is just a symptom of the collapse of the G20’s Executive function and the collapse of the bodies politic that the G20 symbolises.
Imagine a junkie that has contracted TB because of the disease of stuck-addiction and the collapse of self-care that this primary disease has caused. If that person presents to a doctor and that doctor only treats the TB without attending to the primary disease that opened the person to catching TB in the first place, then the patient will die prematurely.
So now with Mankind. Even if Covid-19 is attended to, if the underlying physical disrepair and Metaphysical disconnect which is the primary situation facing Mankind is not faced, then in a few decades Attenborough’s prediction of a total biosphere collapse may actually materialise.
There is still time, but the healing begins with words. Mankind actually faces a collective software problem not a hardware problem. Software is a language phenomenon and the English language is the global possibility of actually facing what is truly happening on Earth presently. More importantly, the English language can then begin to allow a personal and a collective healing to begin on Earth before it’s too late.
Vertically, two lines that never touch, yet exist to explore the relationship between sides, the relationship of problem to solution.
The conjunct of words rooted in the Latin word scire meaning to know is pivotally important in seeing the equals sign vertically and horizontally.
Universal Consciousness meets Itself as the top line of an equals sign when the bottom line of such a sign is the unbuffered and prepared bottom line that is the knowledge of a person, the science of a person as conscience.
Horizontally, one side of the equals sign does not create the other side, rather it brings the two sides together.
So 2+5=7, but they all existed as numbers prior to their relationship to each other being exposed by the equals sign.
So, whatever problem is the main problem facing you now, the solution exists already, it is just that the relationship between the components of your problem and their solution has not yet been connected.
What does this mean in practice?
It means that equality is a constant, it is not to be measured in itself, rather it is the catalytic reality that unites sides so that a “working out” can be shown to have been proved.
The equals sign is one of the 99 Names of God, it is al-Jāmi’
This is the living symbol of my equanimity. It is the actual place that I am in, it is not theoretical.
I am equal to every paradoxical messenger from The One Source that has ever been here on Earth, that will ever become here on Earth, this is presently here on Earth.
Why say these words now?
Simple, I am merely repeating what I have been publishing on my blogs and on my social media accounts for the last nine years. This is my mission.
It is a mission that starts with admission, opens the word remission as it repeats, confirms my commission received from Life, moves me through my omissions and is here in an overall permission, indeed it is an emission of healing energy.
Your mission is awaiting your admission of interest to remember itself, in response to your attraction to this message from our common Source.
There is absolutely no possibility of you receiving this transmission without there being receptors preprepared in you for such a reception to take place, so there is no worry, danger or even mistake that is possible here.
‘Is there anybody there?’ said the Traveller, Knocking on the moonlit door; And his horse in the silence champed the grasses Of the forest’s ferny floor: And a bird flew up out of the turret, Above the Traveller’s head: And he smote upon the door again a second time; ‘Is there anybody there?’ he said. But no one descended to the Traveller; No head from the leaf-fringed sill Leaned over and looked into his grey eyes, Where he stood perplexed and still. But only a host of phantom listeners That dwelt in the lone house then Stood listening in the quiet of the moonlight To that voice from the world of men: Stood thronging the faint moonbeams on the dark stair, That goes down to the empty hall, Hearkening in an air stirred and shaken By the lonely Traveller’s call. And he felt in his heart their strangeness, Their stillness answering his cry, While his horse moved, cropping the dark turf, ’Neath the starred and leafy sky; For he suddenly smote on the door, even Louder, and lifted his head:— ‘Tell them I came, and no one answered, That I kept my word,’ he said. Never the least stir made the listeners, Though every word he spake Fell echoing through the shadowiness of the still house From the one man left awake: Ay, they heard his foot upon the stirrup, And the sound of iron on stone, And how the silence surged softly backward, When the plunging hoofs were gone.

A very narrow division between two alternatives, one of which is much worse than the other.
When sharing about spiritual experience the thin line mentioned above can become razor sharp and a partisan insistence can seem to overtake any such message in the response patterns of people to having received a message about a spiritual experience, even when the transmission is as utterly nondenominational as the word love, is utterly nondenominational.
This is the razor that I stand upon.
Does this mean that I have to simply close down and shut up?
If my message is merely self generated in my intellect, then yes, to save embarrassment all round, it would be best to shut up.
However, the message that I carry is not an intellectual construct, not a theory that I have that is erected in the wrestling ring of the usual process of disassembly that passes as academic rigour.
What I carry is who I am, rather than something that I have.
Love is not about atheism or theism, the sacred disease of Addiction evidences this fact, for the recovery from Addiction is secured by the language of the heart not the logic of the head.
Yet, logic must serve the communication of the heart if there is to be any chance of such a transmission being received by anyone at all in the wider world, not least by those in the most urgent need as evidenced by their undeniable powerlessness and unmanageability in any of the forms of the disease of stuck and broken addiction.
Here then is the razor, the paradoxical yet logical edge, that has to and can cut through the callous layers of dead inner skin that have grown over Mankind’s ability to believe in a Common Metaphysical Source.
Where there is delusional behaviour and religious mania it may seem an even more impossible scenario to talk of a spiritual remedy for such bizarre and threatening behavioural manifestations.
However, the energy in such powerfully disruptive scenarios, whether individual or collective, can in fact be returned to a vehicle of articulation that can then engage with practical problem solving and coherency.
This word coherency is important, for delusional religiosity becomes stuck in a kind of cotherency as impossible renditions of supposed scriptural interpretation are foisted upon all and sundry, even up to the point of terrorist acts, as if all such action was an enforcement of God’s will.
There is an apocryphal story about Moses who – upon hearing a man walking down a road saying, “where is my baby Lord that I may worship Him, that I may bring Him gifts, wash His tiny feet, sing His lovely praises for ever?” – responded angrily by shouting, “how dare you wander around spouting such nonsense about the ineffable Majesty and Power of the all consuming and creative Lord of All?”
At that, the man screamed and ran off into the desert wailing.
Moses immediately received an intimation from God, “I did not send you to sow further discord and pain amongst those trying to reach Me by whatever means their stage seems to make sense to them, you are sent to bear witness to the Unity of My existence.”
Moses was distraught at this and immediately saw his error, he searched all over for the man for a long time and eventually having found him, ran up to him apologising profusely for having criticised his prayers and worship.
The man accepted the apology from Moses, but then thanked him, he said, “when you first announced your reactions to me I was so shocked I thought that I was dying, I couldn’t find a belief in anything anymore. In the desert, unable to eat or drink eventually I asked God to help me and I was suddenly taken to such a deep insight that I can hardly put it into words, so I promise you all is well.”
This story encapsulates much of the challenge facing Mankind today. It is why Bill W., one of the founders of the 12 Step Programme, described Alcoholics Anonymous as the container of a spiritual kindergarten.
The foundations of any knowledge applicable to Mankind’s life on Earth are those containing creative principles that are ultimately shown to be factuallybelievable.
Yet as “expanding knowledge” seems to destroy what was previously believed to have been impossible, the locus of all belief which is the Heart, must ever renew its ancient causal primordial anchorage, lest Love is lost.
This is the thin line, it is the global situation facing Mankind today, maybe it has been the situation perennially facing Mankind.
How can a Metaphysical solution make any sense to a seemingly physical problem?
I repeat, this is the razor that I stand and serve upon in a world of Mankind that increasingly can no longer deny that by any analysis of current events, is standing upon this same thin line with me, whether it likes it or not.
