Peace is not a lack of war

Where the insane leaders of this Earth exhibit their illness most clearly is in their disposition, their failure to comprehend their actual position.

Peace is not a fragile thing as posited by Vladimir Putin. Peace is a place within which Mankind appears. Peace is like the atmosphere for breathing entities, it is like the rivers and seas and oceans for aquatic life. Peace is the most powerful phenomenon on this planet which is why time itself as Anno Domini is measured by the Prince of Peace, where Peace is territory within the kingdom of The King of Love.

So, as the little toys are paraded to try to pretend that they are there to protect Peace, let it be known that Peace is well able to protect Itself from those who insult It with their hubris.

As the Offices of State of the Security Council of The United Nations are so clearly broken and failing in their primary function which is that of being united internationally, all policies issuing from these Offices of State cannot help therefore but deliver ever greater tensions of disunity in their national functions too.

The politicians should look to the Prince and King if they wish to serve Humankind by understanding the actual territory of The Universe.

If they think that all Humankind are not already citizens in the kingdom of Love, then they are still dividing and ruling a mere Mankind for their own personal and insane delusory agendas and fearful revenge.

In defence of this amazing time

It is so easy to slip into knocking mode. The news-media exaggerates the absurdly small numbers of people actually experiencing murder, bombs, disaster and destitution. It is not to ignore or justify the pain of the people suffering, every single person is connected to every other person. Yet out of 7,500,000,000 people, the overwhelming majority of folks are in an amazing life, a life that is about to become even more amazing!

I have just driven from Kingston-upon-Hull to Manchester Airport, a feat that even only 50 years ago would have been a considerable challenge. I completed the task in one hour and forty minutes. I then checked my mobile phone for the nearest supermarket as I am on a four hour wait before I pick up another person from the airport to take them to Hull.

Having talked to my computerised helper and pressed a link on the touch screen of my phone, the sat-nav automatically organised my journey through these strange suburbs of Manchester and I now sit in a café writing this blog entry. Even ten years ago this seamless experience would not have been possible.

As I look around this supermarket, for it actually is super, I see people of all shapes and sizes, people at all stages of their life’s journey. It is an amazing experience that today I cannot take for granted and pretend that it is not anything other than truly amazing.

As I sit here, in my mind’s eye I immediately connect with every other branch of this particular supermarket in the UK and know that what I am witnessing here is playing out across this country. I am aware of all the other brands of supermarkets in the UK. This scene is playing out across Europe. This scene plays out across this whole world every day in a truly amazing and wondrous way.

This is the best of times and it is the worst of times as Charles Dickens said in his Tale Of Two Cities. The worst of times, as a proportion of the best of times, is a comparative figure that could be worked out across any number of statistical criteria.

However, my contention today is that whatever way the worst of times is looked at as a figure, then that figure is hugely and massively less than the figure that would crunch to represent the best of times. This is true in this moment and becomes even more significant when the comparison extends to a time frame even as small as ten years.

What is the matter with us then as a species?

You could be forgiven if you have skimmed through my blogs and social-media profiles over the past four years and simply seen only a message of illness. I hold to the effort that I’ve made to contextualise the forces acting upon leaders as they try to land a new epoch upon a landing-pad that is hardly past its design phase. Yet my message is designed to help leaders not to blame them.

Everything is moving so fast for so many people that it is hard to believe what is happening to us as a species, as a nation, as a culture, as a community, as a group, as a family or and as an individual.

There is the key word …. believe.

There are in the echelons of power, elements that are misguided, there always have been. This is no reason to be downhearted and no reason to stop believing in the overwhelming beauty at the heart of the intentions of people in positions of command and control both corporately and politically.

As most people live in the systemic bodies of our globalising culture, the relationships between heads and bodies become vitally important. Those few individuals that work within the head of their body of industry, or of finance, or of policy, or of power wherever it exerts an influence, these head individuals have one primary stress test that they must examine very regularly.

Is the head actually attached to the body with an executive function that is able to execute planned solutions through viably connected pathways of communication?

My writing communicates from a living presence which knows that much of our present global dynamic has arrived to where it is now despite the best efforts of international politicians rather than because of them! So, as this will continue to be the case, this again is a primary reason to be optimistic about these amazing times, if you can only remedy your beliefs.

How can you remedy your beliefs?

This is the question that I have been exercised by over the last few years. I am not wholly dissatisfied with the results of my exercises, but there is much to do before I leave this mortal coil, if God wills.

So, how to help folks reconnect with their belief function? How to help folks to actually believe what they know?

If a person fails to believe, or if a collective fails to believe that they can do something even though they have might have previously done that something before, then this disconnect between either actual knowledge or theoretical knowledge conflates experience and theory into a joint disability of disaster.

See now then, how important to functionality is this oft’derided word belief. As the Sufi poet and mystic Hafiz said:

“I wish I could show you when you are lonely or in darkness the astonishing light of your own being.”

I echo this yearning of Hafiz for you now, down through the centuries: how can we show you enough of your true self to allow you to believe in the astonishing light of your own being?

This is my work. This is why I hammer on about stuck-addiction©️. It is not to belittle nor to deride these amazing times. It is however an attempt to bring as many people as possible to a point of reconnection, to a point of orientation that gives the best possible chance of as many people as possible coming to believe that a power greater than themselves can restore them to sanity.

This power is Love.

‘Abd al-Mu’min ibn Hulli.

The 21st century penury

Feeling offended is a common component of denial, a refusal to accept that someone, something or somewhere has ‘ended’.

The root of ‘offence’ is ‘pretence’.

Where there is only a pretending, then the similar behaviour of others will be processed defensively and then offensively, until this resentment pattern is hidden in stuck-addiction©️

So the first two stages of grief are denial and anger. To be defensive and then offensive are simply to be seen as these componential factors of a grief situation.

When there is some work done to experience the truth of the invisible, living Singularity that is loving Consciousness, then denial evaporates.

In this re-pairing of the birthday and deathday of a person in the Source of all, the actions of others are not offensive, merely avoidable where necessary, forgivable if necessary, understandable as necessary, recognisable as me.

Where there is no enemy, there is me.
Where there is me, there is necessarily we.
Where there is you, there is only you.
He, she, it and they pretend to offend,
Until they don’t.

Start!

Everything is perfectly placed

What if everything is actually alright? What if within the inter-linked worlds of all of the myriad ways of experiencing life as Mankind, that there is only actually validity for all views.

What my experience tells me is that this Earth may be many things, but it is not accidental. Life may seem to contain accidents, but Life itself is not an accident.

Masses of people can become trapped in tribal positions, religiously following rules, dogma and the liturgies of behavioural compliance that enable small numbers of people to control large numbers of people. This phenomenon grew out of the known Empires before Christ, is seen in the Roman Empire, adopted efficiently by the Papal States, and all modern political parties in so-called modern democracies are religions in so far as their power signatures resemble those power methodologies of their forebears.

There is only One phenomenon actually appearing on Earth, that’s Life itself. Conditions in the First World are simply amazing on the material plane for the majority of people. Clean water, enough food, medical provision, travel possibilities, communication on a global scale.

So what is actually happening?

Epoch change is happening.

It is clear that no holy-man can appear to sway the politics of power that has carved this Earth up over the last two hundred years, a carving that now arrives at the events of the 24/7 news broadcasts that upset the digestions of so many today.

The physical reputations of the people recorded in Mankind’s story can be seen to have had an effect on their localities with a limit measured in miles and decades, with effects that created movements.

The intellectual reputations of the people recorded in Mankind’s story can be seen to have had an effect on their localities and upon many other localities with a limit immeasurable in miles, with effects that have lasted for centuries and created eras.

The Spiritual reputations of a very few people recorded in Mankind’s story can be seen to have had an effect on every location, upon all people’s awareness, with effects that have lasted for thousands of years and created epochs.

Mankind now moves out of an epoch described as the Age of Pisces, into a new epoch described as the Age of Aquarius.

Jesus Christ ushered in the epoch that has taken on His measurement of Anno Domini to record its passage of time. Muhammad (pbuh) appeared in the essentially Western time frame to enable its continuance and relationship with Judaism and to prepare for its transformation into the epoch of Aquarius at the due time.

What is needed now then is the Spiritual vision to help the epoch to change.

Where is the Spiritual vision of the time, a vision that can help the leaders of the nations to come together with a chance of birthing Humankind out of Mankind?

This vision, this paradoxical challenge to a failing orthodoxy is cohering, but it needs a catalyst to bring its alchemy into a practical momentum.

It is to this catalytic function that my presence articulates information, encouragement, support and action.

Insulation,

The pulse stops.
Healing is wholing.
The hole you’re in is missing a ‘w’.
What is your double you?
It is the ‘my’ and the ‘not my’
Held together in an insulation.

Held together in an insulation.
What is insulation?
Love is insulation
Love makes the hole whole.

Facebook is a strange land. The repeat function that throws up what a person posted on the day but a year or many years ago, it is odd to see what one wrote.

Over the years of my social media writing, a process that I was and still can be, reluctant to engage with, the words pour out with very little intellectual activity.

This may be glaringly obvious to the intellectual reader of course!! Yet, because of the way this has been, when I see posts from the past I often find myself wondering who wrote them.

I have heard that this can be quite a common phenomenon for writers, so I claim no special function here. However, the above post that I wrote one year ago with Twitter addresses prefixing it as my Facebook posting appears automatically on Twitter, well this post seems especially odd.

I often bring together the addresses of the world’s leaders, as if they were gathered in my therapy room. On some level, the more abstract voices of the esoteric wing of the social media revolution would say that as they are virtually grouped, so they actually are in that moment.

Anyhoo, at this time of global brinkmanship and tension about oil-dollars, hegemony, empire building, basic resource management and on, and on, and on – my message hasn’t changed in a year ….

So I posted it again 🕉️

God in the 21st century?

Of course many people with busy lives have no time for God, the word anyway has so many maleficent associations now with terrorism and historical excess, power plays and abuse that modern people recoil at holy messages however much they might be purporting to be actually in God, of God, to God.

This recoil from holy message is actually nothing to do with modern sophistications. Messengers challenging their orthodoxy with a paradoxical interject from an Almighty Singularity have always been despised both by those exercising their power, influence and control in their versions of their surely God-given positions of authority, as well as by those being trampled by such authority to the point of believing in nothing merciful existing anywhere, ever at all.

So, what’s happening in 2018AD?

Same as it ever was, God is “just another brick in the wall” for most people to quote the popular Pink Floyd lyric. A majority of people might still allude to being part of some colour of a misty, indefinable spirituality if questioned firmly enough about existential matters, but as for God, no, thank you very much.

Any person today who has the temerity then to announce publicly and regularly to a culture in crisis that actually they are bringing a spiritual message of definition and orientation to this ailing culture to help members of said culture see their agony more clearly …. is obviously going to be welcomed with open arms and relieved reactions of instant recognition, aren’t they?

Of course not, the message is going to be denied and the messenger kept outside the gated walls of their epistemological cul-de-sac by orthodoxies that though they are failing over most of their KPIs, still dare not pay more than lip-service to the vital notion of not having contempt prior to investigation.

I am able to carry my message well. Life has prepared me extremely well and tanned the fabric of my being with all of the rigour that an actual leather hide is transformed from being a mere skin from a butchered animal into a garment fit for a King.

I know my confidence to be able to talk of service to One God, even though initially in terms befitting a spiritual kindergarten, is not a mere fantasy. This knowledge is based in my actual, factual, evidence based experience as a changed person as well as my qualification and practice as a professional therapist.

There is a difference between talking about a message from God and being a message from God, and in my own way of uniting belief with knowledge I am honoured to associate myself with the remarks of Carl Jung.

God is Consciousness. God is One. God is Love. God is the quaternity of the Yin-yang that is apprehensible by the Human psyche as the current flowing across the opposite psychic terminals of animus and anima. There is no God, but God.

Mostly folks are little interested in reading my words or hearing me speak unless Life has broken open their receptivity somewhat. These breaking open forces can seem to be calamatous for an orthodox person, until any and all resultant symptoms are audited in their effects upon persons or systems in the light of the sheer Unity of Existence that quantum physicists extol and that my message can confirm.

Therefore, as the continuing atomisation of The Age Of Pisces is brought about by The Age Of Aquarius becoming ever more present on Earth, my words and service may be seen to be coming more easy for people to recognise and to hear.

The calamatous times in my life were not theoretical, they were actual to me. The change wrought in me through destiny, practice and the abandoning of myself to God with that abandonment then bringing about a fusion of consciousness with that which I am calling God is not theoretical either.

This message is not fanatical, intransigent nor gratuitously challenging in a stubborn way to merely criticise and bash people’s inability to believe in God. I am carrying a message because it is an essential process of remaining here on this plane after a returning to the Essence of Existence, rather than simply leaving my body and returning home.

This Essence cannot be spoken about in Its Essential Singularity, what can be spoken of is my mortal union, conscious contact and service with It and to It and what changes I have directly experienced in life as a result of this reunitative process.

I am also permitted to talk of the face of God, to appear vicariously in that permission as situations arise that require this usually forbidden functionality to be made manifest as He wills.

My responsibility is discharged once my message is carried to the best of my ability. How the message is received is not my responsibility. The message is actually idiotically simple, ancient, urgent and timely. The message is One to one, the message is one of Love.

Hu hu.

Priorities

It is said on The Way that “Man proposes and God disposes”.

For me as ‘Abd al-Mu’min this is the living reality of my experience. There is a hadith that says that God fits into the heart of the believing servant.

So, as life poses problems for me, there is a constant flow of possible proposals for me to manifest as a consequence of engaging with life.

These arising proposals are at every level and aspect of my being without exception and with a total unconditional regard. These proposals encompass my physical/mental/spiritual presence and are led only by my certainty of union and conscious contact with God as the experiential fact of my life.

This fact of my conscious contact with God is unassailable but is testable from moment to moment in terms of my inner experience and my manifestation of mental activity and physical action. This fact is embodied in Step 11 of a 12 Step Programme.

“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.”

Thankfully God disposes of His presence in my heart and the extreme limits of my awareness are held in a function of peace and relative possibility so as to make my service possible and bearable, not only for me but also for those to whom I am brought into contact.

This post then contextualises the years of writing that is patently embracing of a message of messianic proportions, but without having to join the queues of disintegrated messianic function that presents itself for treatment in the psychiatric offices of the global health care systems on a daily basis.

My exterior function is integrated in that prayer of Muhammad (pbuh), “O God, I seek refuge in You, from You.”

I am open to any rôle that is possible for me to manifest for God in His/Her/Its creation. I do not crave any particular rôle however, even though the reality of my presence connects the highest with the lowest as may be generally understood by Mankind.

There is not much more for me to say about me personally or explicitly that can expose any further the implicit message that my writings have conveyed over these past few years. The reader can take what suits them and leave what does not, without worry that there is anything to be missed that may be somehow needed.

Events in this physical world on Earth are not what they immediately appear to be, especially at this time of juncture between eras. My posts and communications will attempt to convey the strength and hope that is the antidote to my personal experience, the reality of the protection granted to me by my being who I am.

For you to be able to come to believe in your own Higher Power is the only reason for my writing.

Thus although my writing and talking exposes myself to a scrutiny that is utterly unnecessary for my certainty of and service toward One Love in action that is Life Itself, yet as a catalyst it may be utterly necessary for you to have read or heard it, if your belief in yourself is to become reconnected with what you know of yourself.

“Man proposes, God disposes.”

Orthodox Addiction

The following quote describes orthodox Addiction:

“A maladaptive pattern of substance use, leading to clinically significant impairment ment or distress, as manifest by three (or more) of the following, occurring at any time in the same 12-month period:

(1) tolerance, as defined by either of the following: (a) a need for markedly increased amounts of the substance to achieve intoxication or the desired effect (b) markedly diminished effect with continued use of the same amount of the substance

(2) withdrawal, as manifested by either of the following: (a) the characteristic withdrawal syndrome for the substance (refer to Criteria A and B of the criteria sets for Withdrawal from the specific Substances) (b) the same (or a closely related) substance is taken to relieve or avoid withdrawal symptoms

(3) the substance is often taken in larger amounts or over a longer period than was intended

(4) there is a persistent desire or unsuccessful efforts to cut down or control substance use

(5) a great deal of time is spent in activities necessary to obtain the substance (e.g., visiting multiple doctors or driving long distances), use the substance (e.g., chain-smoking), or recover from its effects.

(6) important social, occupational, or recreational activities are given up or reduced because of substance use

(7) the substance use is continued despite knowledge of having a persistent or recurrent physical or psychological problem that is likely to have been caused or exacerbated by the substance (e.g., current cocaine use despite recognition of cocaine-induced depression, or continued drinking despite recognition that an ulcer was made worse by alcohol consumption).”

(Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Copyright © 2000, American Psychiatric Association)

When the disease of Addiction as described above is extended across behaviours, then the term stuck-addiction©️ becomes clearer.

Number 5 shows the illness of stuck-money and the unhappiness of millions of people doing a job they hate.

Number 6 shows the collapse of family, of social cohesion, of the high street caused by a digitally driven era-change that is amplifying the effects of a collective vulnerability to becoming addicted to alcohol, food, sex, the internet, money, gambling, work, fundamental radicalised religions that accuse, hate, divide and seek to monopolise Love for their own ends.

Number 7 describes the Einstein definition of insanity that is to keep doing the same thing expecting a different result.

This insanity now infects the Corporate and Political Offices of Governance across Earth.

Einstein also said that the mindset that creates a problem is not the mindset that can solve the that problem. A higher input is required.

New conversations are required, a new coming together of Opposites to catalyse the middle ground of new solutions.

Orthodox Addiction is a Primary Disease. Stuck-addiction©️ is the paradox that can release the space for new conversations to begin to happen, conversations that will in turn release innovations for Human beings that are beyond their wildest dreams.

Om Tat Sat

On and on the murky world of espionage, Empire, power and brinkmanship unravels before incredulous eyes. Where will it stop this sickness of secrecy as the poo is pushed from one side of the monkey cage to the other in a hypocritical attempt by a failing orthodoxy pretending to be different and “of the people”?

We the people aren’t fooled. We the people seem to be being given undeniable evidence of the horror that has been hiding in plain sight for hundreds of years.

The Offices of State are malfunctioning whichever party occupies their sullied seats.
How are the global Offices to be reconnected to the bodies they no longer serve?

It may not be possible without a complete collapse, as happens when an individual becomes dislocated from their body in the illness of stuck-addiction©️

This collapse, when it comes, will be sudden, total and catastrophic, as happens when an individual person collapses in crisis, or when a company like Carillion collapses. There are always denied indicators in both personal and systemic collapse.

The indicators now for the national and international bodies that we the people live within are evermore loudly blasting out their warnings of imminent collapse.

There is hope. There is a way to navigate through these times. The compass is compassion. Compassion is inherent in spiritual leadership, in the top line that is presently missing from the bottom line driven Ponzi Scheme that is the collapsing global system.

When the collapse comes, the top line reconnects with the remaining bottom line to bring repair and recovery.
How do I know this?
Because I am this.
