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.
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.
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.
I can only apologise and yet can hardly contain my excitement at what my unwitting description actually now develops into.
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.
Mankind arrives and is born into the below pyramidas 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 pyramidas 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
“If dull people lose the idea of God nothing happens – not immediately at least. But socially the masses begin to breed mental epidemics, of which we have now a fair number.” (C. G. Jung, Psychology & Religion (New Haven and London: Yale University Press, 1938) 105.)
First, there may be a new conversation about suicide actually being an expression of an attempt by a person to resolve the overall cultural condition of “disconnected death”.
This condition of “disconnected death” which has been foisted onto mass populations since time immemorial by pirates who have wished to control with fear, is at the core of the primary disease of Addiction.
Addiction is the bellwether disease of the current digitally driven era-change. All forms of Addiction are suicide in slow motion.
At the level of The Logos, the words in the global language of English can forensically show that conditions are sticking because words are broken. The word addiction shows that actually it is not the problem. In the healing of the word addiction, the way is shown how to change any stuck or broken behaviour.
Because even the description of the global behavioural breakdown is flawed, conditions are worsening setting up the stage for the populist uprisings that are beginning to dominate global politics.
I have introduced the terms stuck-addiction and broken-addiction to help with the rehabilitation of the actual meaning of the word addiction, for without this reclamation of meaning for people and for systemic leadership teams, there can not establish the antidote to the breakdown of the world order that is now happening.
The antidote to the present global disintegrations is to build the existential bridge to the new era more clearly so that the fear based bullying of the populist energies can be dissipated.
The illness paradigm that Diction Resolution Therapy introduces may paradoxically be the only way for both the aspirations of the SMTs of collective undertakings and of individuals to begin to co-create a common way forward.
Addiction is a sacred disease with a sacred solution that takes broken and empty words and heals the words, from which then healed behaviours can have a chance to flow.
The word have describes the mental/physical interface of Mankind. There are people who have all kinds of theories, proofs, hypothesis, questions, experiences. There are people who have power, money, influence, networks. There are a very few people who are what they have.
This is because being is inseparable from the verb be.
All of the problems that have ever faced Mankind, that are still facing Mankind, derive from this separation of being from having.
The reconnection of these verbs cannot occur from the have to the be. The reconnection is an act of Grace from the primordial Be to the relative have, but only when the necessary conditions have been met for this resolution to occur.
For a person and increasingly now also for the SMTs of undertakings, what is the necessary condition?
Submission, an admission of the need for a reconnection to be requested.
This is Step One of the 12 Step Programme.
We admitted we were powerless over *********** – that our lives had become unmanageable.
Without this first step, there can be no entry through the ever open door mentioned in the opening picture. The connection to the primary Be is ever present, the separation is illusory, but it seems that there is a price to pay to decondition the radicalisation of the life and death battle that has been a narrative for so very long in Mankind’s history.
When a person, place or thing becomes established erroneously as the brown wire in a personal or a collective situation, then that error symbolically says that they own the blue wire in that configuration.
Politics and religion are at the level of thing in people’s existential descriptions. Organised crime is a thing. People and places are as they are. Eighty five years of evidence based recovery dynamics in the treatment of the disease of Addiction show that the brown wire in a person’s existential plug can never be a person, place or thing.
The brown wire is the source that activates birth and death, so it can be seen that governments and organised criminals both set themselves up as death wielders to activate the plugs of those that they would control.
Abraham is the Brown Wire Envoy par excellence in the Western history of monotheistic revelation, his revelation is the tap-root that contains the religions of the Jews, Christians and Muslims. When Abraham challenged the idolators of his day, those with total power over people’s lives, they of course tried to kill him, but they failed.
So too today, the global counterfeit brown wire providers hide in plain sight to control masses of people.
The disease of Addiction begins when the most sensitive people in a society, or the most downtrodden, become susceptible to behaviours that attempt to take back control of the brown wire away from the fear imposed convention.
This is why the disease of Addiction is so bizarre for the conventional medical practitioners to address. For even though they serve a culture that brainwashes masses of people with advertising and propaganda, still fear of physical death or its cousin the fear of losing reputation and career, this fear of death is something that has to be deemed as abnormal if not present in a person.
So the paradox that is the primary disease of Addiction has been established in its definition and resolution via the 12 Step Fellowships over the last eighty five years.
Even recently as the UK government has renewed its Trident nuclear weapons system without even passing it through the UK Parliament, the country and its MPs found out in a newspaper report, the collective minority brown wire that is global governance, cling onto their collapsing analogue levers of death control in the face of The Age Of Aquarius that restores people’s brown wire Singularity to its Metaphysical Authenticity.

“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.
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.
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.”
“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.”
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:
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.
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”.
At this time of historic Parliamentary chaos for the UK, this quote from Jung is the only “in/out” vote that the UK faces, the vote that #Brexit mimics. This question reflects the power at the very core of the 12 Step Programme.
This is the affirmative message of Diction Resolution Therapy (DRT) the very reason for my work as ‘Abd al-Mu’min al-Jāmi’ ibn Hulli, the only reason that you are reading this now.
“The decisive question for man is: Is he related to something infinite or not? That is the telling question of his life. Only if we know that the thing which truly matters is the infinite can we avoid fixing our interests upon futilities, and upon all kinds of goals which are not of real importance. Thus we demand that the world grant us recognition for qualities which we regard as personal possessions: our talent or our beauty. The more a man lays stress on false possessions, and the less sensitivity he has for what is essential, the less satisfying is his life. He feels limited because he has limited aims, and the result is envy and jealousy. If we understand and feel that here in this life we already have a link with the infinite, desires and attitudes change.”
— “Memories, Dreams, Reflections” (CG Jung)
From the text of the book Alcoholics Anonymous, the book that published the 12 Step Programme in the 1930s, comes this posing of the question ….
“Our friend was a minister’s son. He attended church school, where he became rebellious at what he thought an overdose of religious education. For years thereafter he was dogged by trouble and frustration.
Business failure, insanity, fatal illness, suicide —these calamities in his immediate family embittered and depressed him. Post-war disillusionment, ever more serious alcoholism, impending mental and physical collapse, brought him to the point to self-destruction.
One night, when confined in a hospital, he was approached by an alcoholic who had known a spiritual experience. Our friend’s gorge rose as he bitterly cried out: “If there is a God, He certainly hasn’t done anything for me!”
But later, alone in his room, he asked himself this question: “Is it possible that all the religious people I have known are wrong?”
While pondering the answer he felt as though he lived in hell. Then, like a thunderbolt, a great thought came. It crowded out all else:
“Who are you to say there is no God?”
This man recounts that he tumbled out of bed to his knees. In a few seconds he was overwhelmed by a conviction of the Presence of God. It poured over and through him with the certainty and majesty of a great tide at flood. The barriers he had built through the years were swept away.
He stood in the Presence of Infinite Power and Love. He had stepped from bridge to shore. For the first time, he lived in conscious companionship with his Creator. Thus was our friend’s cornerstone fixed in place. No later vicissitude has shaken it. His alcoholic problem was taken away. That very night, years ago, it disappeared.
Save for a few brief moments of temptation the thought of drink has never returned; and at such times a great revulsion has risen up in him. Seemingly he could not drink even if he would. God had restored his sanity.
What is this but a miracle of healing? Yet its elements are simple. Circumstances made him willing to believe. He humbly offered himself to his Maker —then he knew.
Even so has God restored us all to our right minds. To this man, the revelation was sudden. Some of us grow into it more slowly. But He has come to all who have honestly sought Him.
When we drew near to Him He disclosed Himself to us!”
So then, it seems that an overwhelming urgency, a preparation of the personal place, unique conditions that are often painful through disease, abuse, war, sudden realisation of a true situation as against illusion (as in the case of The Buddha walking away from a rich privileged life), collective adversity as can be seen in the microcosms of both Moses and Muhammad (pbuh), all of this and more has prompted people in the past to ask Jung’s question ….“Is he related to something infinite or not?”
Mother Nature provides Mankind with a physical centre of gravity. This centre allows a person to lose and regain balance seamlessly in the process of walking, running, moving in any way with the vehicle of an organic body.
The psyche sits upon this physical vehicle astride universal instincts that can simply be described as security, social and sex instincts. Feelings are pressurised by the instincts and are measurable by a person with a specific emotional guage that is attached to their con-science.
Thus in a physical body, blood pressure and feeling pressure work sympathetically, with these pressures being interpreted with a process of emotional and intellectual reaction that is then acted upon by intelligence choosing a pattern to employ behaviours.
Where this process is weakened through abusive experiences, illness or ignorance, then feeling pressure ruptures into actions that are not processed as part of a higher emotional centre becoming formed. The con-science becomes compromised and ordinary emotional processes become stilted whereupon all possibilities of a Higher Centre are temporarily cutoff.
The yin-yang template of journeying into vice and then returning to virtue cushions these collapses of conscience as simply the necessary mirroring of the physical falling down and standing up of centre of gravity formation, by the inner body of experience that is the person anyway.
In itself then, emotionally failing to process feelings can be likened to falling down. The problems start to become dangerous if the immediate line-management of a person misreads any idiosyncratic behaviours as too scary to carry on with and then proceeds to let the inner Customs and Excise department close down the inner borders of left/right hemisphere travel. The standing back up again, stops.
Then the development of a Higher Emotional Centre atrophies. The purpose of life withers and dies as the inner balance fails to develop. A personal expression then tries to hide this failure through exaggerations or fixations of expression that eventually become incapable of meaningfully integrating the journey of life: a journey designed to be connected via the necessary terminal opposites of birth and death as they pertain to both physical and metaphysical experiences.
As societal forces atomise old cultural forms and necessitate new forms to be developed within the current era-change, then many people are experiencing anxiety as their inner habits and their habitations collapse as if in inner earthquakes.
DRT as a therapeutic application is both a preventative to collapse and a reconstruction after collapse for both people and for systems as their hosting culture radically and irrevocabley changes.
The spiritual principle behind poverty is succinctness itself at this time of remembering Christ, the sparseness of the conditions surrounding His birth, the attitude He had toward the money-lenders in The Temple when He threw them out and the categoric statement He made to the disciples when they complained about expensive perfume being applied to His feet, as He said something to the effect of “the poor will always be here, but I am only here for a short time”.
So, the way out of the conundrum is to see the World as perfect, and that the opposites are here for each other as Dickens wrote about in The Christmas Carol wherein Scrooge wakes up in time to save his soul simply by giving more of his money away.
The crisis facing Mankind is real. There is a huge money mountain that is growing and there is a huge, but smaller, debt mountain that is growing. The system cannot bring these to mountains together, more and more people are flat-lining in a dystopic and visionless collapse between these mountains.
This will challenge all of the democratic functions of the so-called Christian Empire whose officials swear an oath of democratic service using a Bible, for the catalytic act of putting money back into its proper place of service will truly trickle down into the global culture in a way that worshipping money as a commodity has never been able to do.
In 1982, I had a conversation with an Anglican Bishop about just such a possibility, that the body of Christ as the Church, might have to sacrifice itself if the hypocrisy of the historical journey of institutionalised power was to make an atonement and something of true Christianity might begin to be born.
The Bishop looked at me shocked and said, “but Andrew, a monster might be born”.
Since then of course, monstrous revelations about the behaviours of priests, nuns and clergy generally have been exposed, so it is possible to see why the Bishop was so instinctively scared in 1982, and there may be lots more that the Establishment generally has yet to suffer being borne by the public, before the New Age can land.
We have all faced considerable disaster since this process of cultural atomisation has really gathered in pace post the 2008 global banking crash. There may be much more yet that has to be borne.
The problems facing the global leaders today are spiritual problems that will only begin to be resolved under the applied vision of spiritual principles having been embodied as top-line behaviours, by leaders presently obsessed with purely bottom-line driven behaviours, bottom-line driven behaviours that give 25 people the same wealth as half of this planet’s population.
There is no quick fix. The desire for a quick fix is part of the problem. What is possible is a clarification of the real situation facing global leaders, from which clarifications new conversations can begin and the pathway to the new Epoch can begin to be written.
If the Christmas Carol principle is not extended by the richest institutions, the richest people giving of their wealth to those with nothing, then no political force alone anywhere on Earth, nationally or collectively, has any policy possibility whatsoever that has the slightest chance of averting a global nuclear war in a matter of years rather than decades, maybe even months rather than years.
From up in a room in the roof of a converted cow shed, like a member of the resistance in enemy occupied Europe in 1942, the tablet opens and it starts to transmit.
People who are tuned in to this broadcast frequency have been given this frequency by their HQ. What does HQ stand for? It stands for Highest Quotient.
I am one of the most intelligent people on the planet today with an IQ of 164. This is simply a fact. From this fact derives my determination to find out just what is actually occurring in my life as against what the system tells me is happening. By the word system, I mean my own inner nervous system as well as the outer system of cultural command and control.
My life from the age of my puberty has been lived in an inner battleground. Love has been my only shield and guide. My inner condition, my yin/yang being married, is now clear to me. My outer conditions I now see are embroiled in commotions that I can recognise from my inner experiences that have been resolved for me but are now being played out in the plurality.
So, my seeming choice is either to leave my outer world to itself and sit smugly in my inner cohesion, or to find a way to join in with the resistance movements that are being attacked by the old era that doesn’t accept that it has already gone.
The smoke and mirrors of control are seemingly all prevailing in the outer world. They are however only seemingly so, just as the inner conditions in my life eventually have had to give way to a direct experience of a Singular consummation, so too the outer environs of my being are universally connected. So, I have no choice, other than to turn seeming into seemly.
This connectivity is exposed by quantum physics and by the mystic’s verse, there is only One.
The success of your inner venture is assured, fear not. The adherents of the old ways have already died, they just don’t realise it yet in their sleep. The adherents of the new ways have not quite seen themselves yet as more folks wake up.
How can I know this?
I simply look inside to see how the environs are becoming and are to become.
