Breakdown and AA Recovery in 12 Steps.

Did Rumi actually say this?

My days are not presently a furnace of stress and anxiety, so I guess that what I need is flowing to me, indeed that it already has flowed to me. So, is anything attracting me? If so, whatever the appearances, there is a mutuality.

Then, within this secret, is there a choice of action?

Of course there is. Discernment, propriety, experience, choice – these words are legitimate within the movement around a Higher Emotional Centre.

However, this movement around a Higher Emotional Centre, to be articulate in this expression, requires a vehicle of transmission that individual people must build experientially for themselves.

In the furnace of stress and anxiety that Rumi talks about, there is the clutching after people, places and things in an attempt to fit into what a culture is saying is the way to be successful, viable, legal etc.

The 12 Step Programme is the remedy for when the personal “clutch” is broken. Stuck and broken Addiction is when a person is either fixated and stuck on with their will, or when a person’s drive and will is inaccessible to them as a previously stuck on situation has smashed their clutch, or ignorance as to how will actually works has rendered their power transmission as inoperable through fear of clutching at anything at all.

The “clutching” function is represented by the = sign in the diagram

This metaphor is of course only a symbolic and kindergarten representation around the sublimity of Mankind’s potential to interface their mechanical biological drives with an invisible energy Source in articulations that allow the arrival experientially of a Human journey of becoming.

The Holy Spirit is simply “invisible energy” in the same principle that X-rays are an invisible energy. Equally, just as known invisible energy contactibility is investigated and utilised in science in basic terms of “source, transmission and reception”, just so is it possible to approach The Holy Spirit phenomenologically.

The Holy Spirit enters into the engine of the Diction Chamber in the diagram above. So, as it tells you in the formatting of St John’s Gospel, “in the beginning was the Word….”.

When stuck and broken Addiction has broken the above diagram, then the Diction Chamber atrophies and becomes the castle in The Sleeping Beauty story.

The phenomena of millions of people being healed over the last 85 years within an application of the 12 Step Programme now provides Mankind with a reproducible technology of the heart, mind and body connectivity of men and women and the power dynamics of successful Human healing when the transmission of the power of Love suffers a catastrophic breakdown.

What this description is actually exposing is that a deeper technology is being made available within a movement out of a spiritual kindergarten.

Spherical vehicle of being

Returning to this previous blog post called The Sphere continues to shed light at this time – click on this link.

https://youtu.be/BN_NWTV2liA at 6:40 the neutral place is clarified ….


1. “When ready, we say something like this: “My Creator, I am now willing that you should have all of me, good and bad. I pray that you now remove from me every single defect of character which stands in the way of my usefulness to you and my fellows. Grant me strength, as I go out from here, to do your bidding. Amen.” We have then completed Step Seven.”

2. “And we have ceased fighting anything or anyone — even alcohol. For by this time sanity will have returned. We will seldom be interested in liquor. If tempted, we recoil from it as from a hot flame. We react sanely and normally, and we will find that this has happened automatically. We will see that our new attitude toward liquor has been given us without any thought or effort on our part. It just comes! That is the miracle of it. We are not fighting it, neither are we avoiding temptation. We feel as though we had been placed in a position of neutrality — safe and protected. We have not even sworn off. Instead, the problem has been removed.”

(From the Basic Text of the 12 Step Programme)


This first quote then is the second rite of passage that completes the construction of the vehicle that permits the neutral place to manifest as described in the second quote.

The 12 Step Programme connects all opposites both visible and invisible as is the actual template anyway as described by Rumi in the 13th century.

This describes the eventual connection of left and right hemisphere in the brain as consciousness meets conscience in a whole brained person when the Creation story is internalised and the angelic functions are experienced as the potential synaptic connectivity of the psyche as delineated by Muhyiddin Ibn Arabi in the 13th century also.

“So you see, this is heresy”. (Joseph Campbell)

Heresy … the apparent position of the Sufi throughout history 😉😂🌄

From her book The Living Process

It’s a thin line

“a thin line”

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 factually believable.

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.

The Sphere

The double pyramid of the Oktaeder

In the nature of an apology and a correction I must must now share a breakthrough insight given to me today from a FB group from which the above diagram has arrived.

Those familiar with my work might recall that I have posted a view of the 12 Step Programme that utilises the two-dimensional logo of a triangle in a circle as denoting a pyramid in a sphere.

This cannot work unless what I am actually describing is one half of an Octahedron, ie there are actually two pyramids needed for a sphere to touch all the points that I have described as necessarily being connected.

The upper and lower pyramids of an Octahedron

I can only apologise and yet can hardly contain my excitement at what my unwitting description actually now develops into.

For the means of this development, I need to utilise the words “below” and “above”. For Mankind is in the below pyramid that has gravity at its centre. The above pyramid that I describe in its construction with the 12 Step Programme has love at its centre.

Only when the bottom line of gravity (having) is connected to the top line of love (being) is the equals sign of Humanity activated spherically for The Human, being a personal behaviour to consistently appear.

So now my work can begin, first with some addenda to my little book that was written in 1997 that led to this blog post ….

And then, if people are interested, with some Zoom meetings (or other interactive meeting places) to expand upon these new insights, to share them almost as they arrive to help interested folks engage with the energy to walk through the changes that are impacting everyone globally.

As can be seen from the opening diagrams, the Star of David is linked to the Octahedron and when the upper pyramid is built upon the lower pyramid then the hexagonal shape sanctifies and appears as a personal experience.

Mankind arrives and is born into the below pyramid as is described in The Qur’an when Man is said to have been made in the best of designs but is then brought down to the lowest of the low, lower than which there is not. The place of “seeing through a glass darkly” in the Christian tradition.

The work then is to build this above pyramid as consciousness appears fully when this Octahedral shape is spherically established.

This is the Ark of survivability in the flood of existential information that is overwhelming for the disconnected experience, it is the Ark of the Covenant between God and Creation.

Life is turning …. Or as Rumi said, Life is returning.

“Gurdjieff once said: “A man should be able to turn round in himself.” Now this means that he is stuck to nothing in himself. When we identify we stick to things and so cannot get free and cannot turn round.” ~ Maurice Nicoll

Healing for broken and empty words ….

After an interesting process of being interviewed by The Hull Daily Mail and after flinching just a little from the online headline, I have come to a few realisations as I saw the finished article.

“Unseen leader of the world”, now there’s a headline you don’t see every day in a newspaper!

The newspaper changed the story headline for the printed page version.

So, what is happening with this publicity?

Marianne Williamson, a spiritual teacher who also happens to be standing as a candidate in the 2020 US Presidential process has said that at a time when outrageous lies are being told by global leaders, then those that can should tell outrageous truths.

The ability to shock with a statement is a Sufi hallmark that is recorded in stories throughout the centuries and millennia that The Folk have been recorded as being teachers. So the headline of the online version of my interview is an outrage that has a context.

My work is and has been a matter of public record on my blogs now for six years and Diction Resolution Therapy (DRT) has been available for three years. My social media presence on Facebook and Twitter over these years has been mainly dedicated to my work identifying stuck or broken addiction as the bellwether disease of an era change.

I have built a relationship with my local radio station BBC Radio Humberside since they kindly broadcast the opening of DRT in July 2016 and I have given brief interviews on air for them as addiction matters have periodically entered their news broadcasts over the subsequent years.

This exposure of my work in an article by the Hull Daily Mail allows me clarify it on my blog, to focus the work of the journalist into a more pinpointed outrageous truth.

The journalist who interviewed me is very capable and she has done her best with a deep and problematic phenomenon, namely that Addiction is a primary disease that is not being seen as such by the medical Establishment, whilst also writing about a Sufi quite possibly for the first time in a local Hull story.

A Sufi historically is usually a hidden person, who even if they are known in their locality becomes a paradox, often seen as a holy fool by the orthodox religious people of their particular time and cultural setting.

A Sufi has often been seen as only placed in an Islamic context, this is not necessarily so, for wherever One Love is, there the Sufi is, was and will be.

At this time therefore, my presence as a Sufi is to orientate with the beauty of the Islamic perfection of Muhammad (pbuh) whilst also being able to be connecting all of Abraham’s people with the whole of the Eastern hemisphere’s spirituality as the HU man healing.

I connect HU with AUM as That that’s never actually been separated in essence at all, ever, just as these two poems from the thirteenth century expose – the first is from Muhyiddin Ibn Arabi and the second from Jalalludin Rumi.

“O marvel, a garden amidst the flames –
My heart has become capable of every form: it is a pasture for gazelles and a convent for Christian monks,
And a temple for idols and the pilgrim’s Ka’ba and the tables of the Tora and the book of the Qur’an.
I follow the religion of Love: whatever way Love’s camels take,
that is my religion and my faith.”

https://qr.ae/pNjm8s

“Come, come whatever you are, it doesn’t matter
Whether you are an infidel, an idolater or a
fire-worshiper,
Come, our convent is not a place of despair.
Come, even if you violated your swear
A hundred times, come again.”

The core of Diction Resolution Therapy is in the curing of the word “addiction”.

Once the word addiction is healed and forensically restored to a healthy place on a flow chart describing the executive function of a viable person, then the prevailing cultural conditions of this time can be seen more clearly.

As the broken and empty words that describe the collapse of an ill person are seen to correlate with the broken and empty words of an ill system, then the behaviours of the global politicians can be seen in their actual context of collapse.

Once this collapse is seen, healing can begin.

The reason that my work is now appearing in a manner that seems to be challenging the orthodox methodologies clinically as well as the orthodox methodologies theologically is that that is what is necessary as this page from an Idries Shah book shows:

When words are broken and empty as in the UK Parliamentary drama that is being watched from around the globe, Consciousness responds to help individuals and leaders to begin to diagnose their difficulties in a way that gives a better chance of their problems becoming solved.

Post script added 10/10/19 from my Facebook profile:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-49182184

If a person were to search for an “unseen leader of the world” on Google, perhaps in a reaction away from many of the “seen leaders of the world”, then the BBC headline might become even more clear!!

The Sufi, as a paradox is not limited to Islam or in fact to any exoteric religion, is limited perhaps only by their onlookers’ receptivity of limitless Love.

The seen leader of the free world in 2019 describes himself regularly as “a very stable genius”. I listen to this and smile at the warped and twisted reflection of the “seen from the unseen” as I have a clinical supervisor vouchsafing for the stability of my therapeutic service and I am a member of Mensa!

So as an externally verifiable “very stable genius” myself, I listen to the seen leader of the world and try to find areas of compatibility with his self-validated utterances from his self-proclaimed position as a “very stable genius”, to no avail!

The reaction to the headline written about me locally was just about zilch …. it might as well have said “green eyed alien lands his flying saucer on roof of City Hall”, for that headline wouldn’t surprise people either in the febrile atmosphere brought about by the eleven years of the global post bank-crash cartoon that has culminated in the UK with its last three years of frozen Brexit.

My blog at http://www.lifeisreturning.com has reached a “warped and twisted” point of bewilderment as events nationally and internationally continue their reciprocal duels in the dark.

This moment of my experience is actually breathtakingly beautiful, has no longing for a more glorious past nor any longing for a more spectacular future.

https://m.facebook.com/story.php?story_fbid=269964600533699&id=100025604842801

So, I’m inclined for a while to make sure that I frame any of my further comments about the seen world and its leadership proclamations more clearly from this, my revealed place of search-engined authority, just to see how “stable and/or genius” any erstwhile leadership reflection actually is and to explore the requirement for “respect”.

Salaam.

Gullible

Many years ago, a philosopher asked me if I thought, as he clearly did, that I was too gullible. Through the years, his question has often returned to me, often closing me down from continuing with a view of the world that at my heart, is naturally open and loving.

Thankfully, I have never been able to imprison my gullibility permanently, it has always escaped to save me. It returns like my inner Pied Piper of Hamlyn, my inner Kay to rescue the Kai of my intellect, my inner Prince to kiss my Sleeping Beauty and release my Cinderella from my own Ugly Sisters. It even flew me to a Union with Allah, to the birthing of my soul.

Gullibility is fathomless like the deepest ocean that accepts all rivers. It is the innocence of the dove that redeems the wisdom of the serpent. It is green. I am the gullible man, the green man.

Now of course, I understood what the philosopher meant, he liked me and was fearful for my survival. He was fearful about many things. I was to learn that he was fearful for his academic reputation when, after he had given it to me, in my gullibility I gave a copy of an academic essay on the Unity of Existence called The Twentynine Pages to one of his colleagues. I received a very stern reprimand and was told to retrieve the document forthwith.

I have learnt much from these wisdoms, given to me by my experience of other people and by my exhaustive journey through my own fear and through my reception of the fears of others, both clear and covert, and my journey through those. The fear journeys were similar, but eventually I came to know what was my fear, as against what was the fear held by others.

I can only grow through facing my own fear. The fear that other people hold is not of any ultimate use to me, except that sometimes it has proved to have been part of the detonation of the propellent of my salmon-like journey up the waterfall of my own fear.

This world has become again incredulous, cynical and suspicious of the existence of Love as the Source of all matter, all sentience, all energy and all Life.

You’d have to be very gullible indeed to believe me if I were to tell you who I really am. (however, in a back to the future moment added on 11/1/2020 try putting ‘unseen leader of the world’ into your search engine 😉)

So, for the moment, we carry on with the dance of the Seven Veils. Seven or seventy thousand, makes no difference you see, for these veils of light and dark, of innocence and cynicism, of trust and fear, well, these veils can only be removed by Love.

The Fifth Wheel.

This is not an Authoritarian Crisis, it is the continuing extension of the 2008 collapse of the Ponzi Scheme that is/was the global Grand Plan of a P3 like Branch of a deep Djinn club that has been casting spells onto our Planet for centuries.
Mr. Trump has Goldman Sachs as his inner circle with Mr. Kissinger as his Asymmetry Coordinator to make sure that the Empire’s madness keeps wrong-footing opposition for as long as possible.
In this Epoch change, the billionaires are frightened. They can’t help but be frightened as the 25 having as much as half the world can’t turn off the obscene money machine even if they wanted to turn it off, and they need to know that the money machine is like a rogue articulated wagon with no fifth wheel. It is revving its guts out, flashing all its lights, painting itself with ever more garish colours and adding more curtains to its windows, but it is pulling no trailers, moving no problems, articulating nothing actually meaningful to anyone, anywhere.
Only when this lack of a pulling plate is seen by the mad drivers, the crazed leaders, then stuck-addiction© as a diagnosis can start to invite a new conversation between Offices of State and they can have their new Fifth Wheel and reconnect to the people.
We still have to write the landing of our new Epoch, have to empower the pilots and captains that must deliver the new systems – but the Principles of Possibility will be guiding our hearts.
