Now is the possibility of meeting. Now is the moment of freeing up the bearings of a transmission of possibility that have become seized up with the historical despairing of our very template.
As Rumi said in a similar message in the 13th century:
Come, come, whatever you are, it doesn’t matter Whether you are an infidel, an idolator or a fire worshipper, Come, our convent is not a place of despair, Come, even if you violated your swear A hundred times, come again. Mevlāna.
There is an irony that a helper seems so often to be of no help whatsoever, that is only explicable if it can be understood that the template of physical/mental/spiritual often becomes adulterated.
So if spiritual help is analysed by the mental realm it may seem to be nonexistent, if mental help is applied to a physical problem it is often not understood, if a physical sanction is applied to physical behaviours without regard to a mental or spiritual disease being at play, then the results can be calamitous.
Irony: a state of affairs or an event that seems deliberately contrary to what one expects and is often wryly amusing as a result. “the irony is that I thought he could help me” · ”one of life’s little ironies” synonyms: paradox, paradoxical nature, incongruity, incongruousness, peculiarity (definitions from web search)
So, when I say that I’ll wait for the invitations to come rolling in …. perhaps the inevitable irony that attends discourses like the one above may become clear.
Number 1 is our failing orthodoxy. Number 2 is when the heart starts throwing stuck-addiction at the machine mind to bring it to its knees. Number 3 is Step 1, 2 & 3 of the 12 Step Programme. Number 4 is arriving at Step 11 of the 12 Step Programme.
“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”.
All my problems seem so solid, only solutions flow. I seem solid, although quantum physics tells me that all matter is made up of mainly empty space. The forces of attraction and repulsion seem solid, as matter is pressed against me or as I press upon some matter’s place.
Existential matters seem heavy as though they weigh unkind upon my mind.
Financial matters seem like actual things that knot together and insist upon a form, upon formal meetings with a choreographed manner of processing what’s due where, to whom, when and what for, in a matter of due diligence, contracted service, work, payment and statements as receipts.
All breath flows, in and out. My blood flows across expansion and contraction, my food digests within a peristalsis of squeeze and release. Everything that is living flows, conversation flows, air, water and electricity flows, love flows.
It doesn’t seem to me, at times that my life is flowing, that it is within necessary boundaries, pressured and purposeful, pumping it’s energy toward a goal; that it’s much fun.
God calls me to return to Love’s flow, in the here and now. Who is the miser of my misery? Not He who makes all, but the he or she who would try make small the beauty of Her face.
I’ve written and written blog entries, social media posts and tweets. It seems a …. long drawn out debt …. man of words, a merely sent invoice for my time’s blood, seeping from a gash of an amateur’s concern for a professional game never really played. It seems that my past life has been nothing but a secret, leaked.
So for now farewell, my android’s metaphoric pen must cap: my leaky way become more light, more robust if I’m to survive, escape and pay down my debt to those who would prefer to see me dead, like them.
Only solutions flow.
“Say Allah then leave them to plunge in vain discourse and trifling” ….
(No just estimate of Allah do they make when they say: “Nothing doth Allah send down to man (by way of revelation)” Say: “Who then sent down the Book which Moses brought? – a light and guidance to man: But ye make it into (separate) sheets for show, while ye conceal much (of its contents): therein were ye taught that which ye knew not – neither ye nor your fathers.” Say: “(Allah) (sent it down)”: Then leave them to plunge in vain discourse and trifling. – Al Qur’an 6:91 (Y. Ali) )
Before you came here, “pre” or previous to your maturity something pre-cious was placed in you.
When the time is ripe, often with a shock, a meeting with (Latin ‘cum’ from which derives ‘con’) Con-sciousness activates Itself in its preciousness.
Conscience connects individual preciousness, into personal consciousness knowing and being known by Universal Consciousness.
Consciousness is Energy, the AUM or the HU.
This virtuous circle of Energy and Consciousness establishes The Human being as the = sign, an isthmus.
Equality is impossible to understand without the equals sign, the “=”, makes some sense to the person trying to understand.
The “=” sign connects invisibly the top-line and the bottom-line of any situation. If there is no connection with either of the lines, it disappears and there is left a minus sign.
The “=” sign is the awareness of a person, the cathode/anode connectivity of Energy flowing from top-line con-science into the bottom-line connection to universal instincts of animality, the security, social and sex instincts that then generates “feeling pressure” that moves the individual gauge of emotion.
If the opposite definitions of sadism and masochism were only the preserve of books about the Marquis de Sade, the preserve only of a book by Paulo Coelho called Eleven Minutes, the preserve only of the books about and expanding 50 Shades of Grey further advertised by the Anne Summers stylised fun of fur lined handcuffs – well then, the current global situation, stemming from the sado-masochistic horrors experienced by all populations from the First World War to now, might be different.
It can’t be different however, until some simple principles can be remembered.
Opposites, in principle, are designed for a current to flow across them when they are insulated away from each other but connected together.
How does this play out in a mass situation?
It plays out by remembering the rules of the BDSM fetish power lifestyle that purports to teach adherents the “rules” of safe sex.
The basic rule is that the submissive has all of the power until it is given to the dominant and that there are strict rules of safe disengagement.
No matter how distasteful this may appear to be, it seems that there are political energy conditions that are capable of cohereing from the personal to the mass movements that are not being seen, because it is unspeakable that this basic sex energy could be harnessed in this way.
What can appear to work in a fornication equation between couples or groups in an energy experimentation with binary switches, can eventually render whole nations vulnerable to giving power to a sadistic overruling of national check and balance switches.
Sex energy has been the control factor of religions for centuries of ‘Official rule’ over populations. This control has devolved to secular governments in lawmaking around the age of consent as this applies to sex, to voting, and how under-age criminality is punished for noncompliance.
So, the sadism of the actions reverberating around the world today has an antidote. The antidote relates to the withdrawal of masochistic consent.
The antidote is in correctly identifying the elephant in our collective room.
Of course, this is not the time to judge people in their personal sexual preferences, everyone navigates through this singular global animal instinct the best way that they can.
What I’m saying here is that the herding of masses of people into enclosures of control, despite their best efforts to analyse rationally the consequences of their actions, may indicate a breakdown in the animal/rational interface that is best described by an illness model.
