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

February 1st 2020 Trance Dance

The bastardised word Brexit was inserted into people’s minds as a hypnotic propaganda technique using the term as a noun.

This slight of the propagandists’ hand hid the murky fact that Brexit was being used as a verb.

The nouns of the parent wordage are exit and entrance and are inseparable.

The bastardised verbs take on another, equally inseparable and much more sinister revelatory coupling altogether, to exit and to (make an) entrance.

How would you stereotypically put a person into a trance?

Yes, you’ve got it, by repeating the same phrase over and over again whilst using a device to swing in front of their eyes to trap their attention.

To get the whole UK brexited, first there was a need to get a sufficient mass of people brentranced with the implanted idea.

This is not solely about Britain leaving the EU, it’s about billionaires intimidating political leaders, it’s about damaged people trying to overcompensate for low self-esteem by hoarding money and lying to get power, it’s about occult rites at the highest levels whether Nancy Reagan consulting astrologers to try to protect her husband, or deeper darker rites that are the bread and butter of global celebrity conspiracy theorists.

Lowering of consciousness by induction of trance is the work of how very small numbers of people control very large numbers of people.

Fear can freeze individuals into a trance like state, a petrification. Organised violence is about how to train soldiers with just enough physical antidote to this ultimate trance induction, war, to grant victory to those puppeteer cash holders who make a political and financial profit eventually whether Mankind is hypnotised into the slaughter of the destruction of nations or the laughter of the creation of nations.

Criminals use violence to establish turfs and to carry on their law-breaking. The police have an almost impossible job of refereeing cultures if government policy becomes rudderless, for the police stand in the middle, arbiters between the leaders and the led.

It’s time to change the story of Mankind’s inhumanity to Man.

It’s time for people to snap out of their trance, to see more clearly the journey from Mankind to Humankind without the pirates entrancing the world to their infamous tunes.

The illness of stuck-addiction is the imminent sacred wake-up call promised by the metaphysical antidote providers known as Prophets, Saints, Gurus and Buddhas.

This disease shows that in an individual, there is either an awakening from a trance, or a physical death.

This is now the choice facing the collective on planetEarth.

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.

Problems

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) )

Points to ponder

The message of a top-line collapse rendering the Executive function of Corporations and governmental Cabinet Offices to a state of collapse is not a message that was ever destined to be easy to deliver.

The ruthless behaviours that manifest from the bottom-line fixation of a stuck-addict seem easier to see than the bottom-line fixated antics of say the biggest bank in the world RBS in 2008, than the antics of the directors and auditors of Carillion and InterServe or BHS and Debenhams here in the UK.

Equally the present exposure of illegal activities from within large pharmaceutical and addiction treatment conglomerates is as, if not more, fixated on the bottom-line of making money than is the bottom-line fixation of a drug addict to get their drugs.

So, how to give some information to begin to give some new food for thought for the leaders of finance in a collapsed monetary system.

First, when in a hole admit it and stop digging.

Second, see that this elevating of money to a primary position in the mass governance of people by very small numbers of leaders has happened over and over again in history and it has never ended well according to the scriptures of all of the world’s religions.

So, to look at my message of stuck-addiction collapsing global cultures, it’s now time to look into the ordering of the administration of the now globally cohering 12 Step Fellowships. How do millions of previously dying, diseased ego-maniacs manage the money needed to have ensured that their continued presence is now undeniably working across scores of 12 Step Fellowships in up to 190 countries?

Simply put, the Fellowships manifest with individuals who have a conscious contact with God, as they understand God, coming together in autonomous Groups that submit collectively to a Group Conscience that is an organ of organisational power from a Higher Power, from a top-line.

The bottom-line necessity of money is rigourously kept in place and connected to the top-line of the Group Conscience by the principle of a prudent reserve.

This principle of prudent reserve has protected the 12 Step Fellowships now for over eighty years. The Groups are self-supporting by their own contributions and any excess money is given swiftly to a central office.

This is to guard against the sickness of financial hoarding that is actually a symptom of the illness that is destroying our planet, not helpful to a sustainable Human propiety at all, despite the enticements of a published “Rich List”.

So, the creatives might have to work through this principle of prudent reserve into workable social policy with all of the urgency of people escaping from a collapsing, flaming building …. but it is a principle that has provenance.

The prudent reserve needed for a person in an occupation earning the wage say of a government’s Prime Minister, which is somewhere near 7x the wage of a low earner in the UK presently, well their prudent reserve might be 7x larger than the lowest earner once the size of that reserve had been established.

A start point might be approximately one year’s food and housing expenditure. Anything more than this might be seen as posing a spiritual threat rather than as a symbol of great success.

To start to live under spiritual principles rather than in physical hypocrisy will be a great shock for people, but the world is on fire, it’s time to decide.

As it says in the 12 Step Programme, Spiritual Principles are not theoretical, they now have to be lived.

This post is offered as a point to ponder. The Human, being a leader, meeting with The Human, being members of creative teams will be well able to create sustainable ways of harmoniously dwelling within recovered cities and cultures.

25 people on this planet Earth have as much material wealth as 3,500,000,000 people. Clearly the system is broken akin to the film Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs with nobody able to challenge the rogue money machines that do half of their work now with BOTS that are way away from any connection to democratic control.

This is the brinkmanship that the very ill hoarders of money are enmeshed within, as ever. They stare with their lobby driven puppet governments down the barrels of each other’s MAD weaponry and threaten each other with financial instruments of destruction, all with the insanity of their imagined apparent impunity from Spiritual consequences.

My message, as in Morris West’s The Clowns Of God, is the Dickensian story of A Christmas Carol being brought to life in real time within the backdrop of Attenborough’s message to the UN being actually true. The Scrooges had better wake up and rejoin Mankind while they still have time.

Liam Gallagher’s new song “Shockwave” is the theme tune for the wake-up call that is #theHUmanhealing

No Blame

There is a Name of God, The Gatherer, it is one of my service names, it is the name that energises my rôle as a Paradox Consultant as described on my page https://www.drt.global/corporate

The Gatherer connects opposites as a defining factor of the word paradox. This manifestation of service connects the blue and the brown wire in the plug of a personal connection with the Energy that Einstein describes in E = mc².

Mankind is designed to make mistakes. To make a mistake is vital in the learning process and in the individuating of a permanent Conscience for oneself, through which a precious soul can be activated by Consciousness.

Boundaries have to be applied dispassionately by a governmental function that upholds the need for people to make mistakes in order to learn. Therefore discipline is for ever to be applied without blame being attached to a redemptive process of law.

Blame is an authentic word when it is utilised as a light-house and a navigational warning not to crash upon its rock.

Defects are implicit within the make up of Mankind and in our individual personalities. These veils of light and dark that turn as quality and defect are the very ground of an experiential learning process that is Life itself in the cultural collections that appear on Earth. These defects are the very ones and zeros of the programmability of people that are made most sensible when a Source Code of Singularity is consciously connected.

When politicians for short term gain, have sought to weaponise the mistakes of opponents as proof as to why a person or a party is unfit to lead or be in power, then the body of the ordinary process of mistake based learning becomes severed from the so-called head of that body and eventually the result is UK politics 2019.

There is the phenomenon of fault when power processes fail in any organised endeavour. This is usually when mistakes are erroneously hidden for reasons of fear and imagined loss.

The way through the Gordian Knot that presents in the UK as a mirror to the rest of the world is to see clearly the contrast between mistake and fault. Then law can be processed sequentially as a “no blame” change management pathway can be built.

The only way to access the “no blame” portal in this adversarial system is to repair the terminal of bottom-line fixation with a terminal of a Human top-line of a singularly global understanding. This is work for a Spiritual Counsellor.

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. (postscript link added 11/05/19)

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.

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 🕉️

Conscious-Contact 1

In the huge recovery industry that has been spawned by the arrival of the 12Step Programme in 1937, there has been an asset stripping “gold rush” as everyman and his dog stake out a claim to “mine” from the original deep seam of redemption that is still the singleness of purpose known as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA).

This cunning asset stripping and subsequent re-branding of what is a spiritual message, by an intellectual cleverness that can’t submit to any sense of God-consciousness, is only to be expected as it has been happening for thousands of years.

The Source of the message will of course protect the original transmission of the 12Step brand, just as the cohorted charitable and corporate derivative entities attempt to copyright their constructs and financial schemes.

Some of these global entities of supposed solution bearers to hard-pressed government departments around this addicted world are not even benign in their relationship with the source of their recovery industry, they are actively hostile toward the international 12Step Fellowships that have grown from the original Programme over the last eighty years.

How do I know this? Because I have talked with an employee of Indivior – a global addiction recovery player. (The Indivior link updated in April 2019 after the exposure of alleged malpractice) If you look at their opening page on their website, it seems that they are open to a collegiate approach within the global school of experience that has as its foundation the arrival of AA in 1935.

Far from it, the person I spoke to in my taxi as I took her to the airport was vehemently against the 12Step Programme, even telling me that she spent much of her time informing funders at government level around the world that the 12Step Programme doesn’t work and that they need to buy into their corporate services and drug products.

I spoke to a man recently at an Interfaith gathering who said that no-one could prove that God exists. I said that that was no longer strictly true. I said that since 1935 there had been and still are, many millions of people who can claim conscious contact with God as they understand God. They can claim conscious contact with a Higher Power that is loving and caring that has brought them back from a fate worse than death.

“What do you mean?”, says he.

“Members of the global 12Step Fellowships can all quote their Step11 which places them all in a God-consciousness of their own understanding,” says I.

“That’s not the same as what I was saying,” says he.

“It may not be what you wanted to hear,” says I, “but it is exactly answering of your previous generalisations about God that seemed to serve your atheism so neatly.”

I really don’t object to atheists as this linked video explains ….

However, eventually the conditions on the ground will be met with a message of sanity that is evidence based, irrefutable, compassionate, timely, tremendous and true.

Once the message is delivered, then the recipient has the responsibility of either action or continued inertia.

The 12Step Programme is the only living Spiritual programme left on the planet, the only connection with The Holy Spirit that is practical, predicable, provable and true, redeeming the lives of all people willing to change from within any religion, atheism, secularism, humanism, sect, creed or political party.

The Higher Power of the 12Step Programme is not a theory. It is not a new linguistic programme. It is not a clever manipulation of cognition and behaviour that might last a few months. The 12Step Programme is an ineffable fact, an incredible and indestructible coherence of invisibility and visibility, of time and eternity, of ancient and modern, a triumph of belief over despair.

The 12Step Programme is unashamedly written in the language of the heart, a language that challenges the insanity of the language of the head, until the head submits.

The Singularity that the late Stephen Hawking wrote about in his cosmology that led onto looking at the boundaries of understanding for physics is a reflection of the Singularity that is the Source of the 12Step Programme and its metaphysics.

“Without help it is too much for us, but there is One who has all Power, that One is God, may you find Him now” (AA Book)

This single sentence is the nuclear core of the 12Steps. It is the same sentence spoken by every Prophet, Patriarch, Saint, Messenger and Mystic of the so-called West. It is the sentence that underpins the Eastern Hemisphere of Buddhist enlightenment as surely as a brain has two hemispheres.

It is the sentence of repetition found in the Surah Al Rahman in The Qur’an, “now which of the bounties of your Lord will you deny?”

The template of sanity for a Human being is this threefold, simple, evidence based structure, namely that a person appears as a physical, mental and spiritual being that has to be connected across its two inner interfaces of mental/physical and mental/spiritual if that person is to be described as in any way fully conscious.

God is consciousness.

Mankind arrives existentially inside consciousness, but unaware of this fact, therefore unconscious of the very forces that uphold an awareness of mortality. This is almost analogous to an imaginary conscious fish that is actually in water whilst denying that water exists.

A person who arrives at a conscious contact with this living Singularity arrives within a kindergarten of Human possibility from out of the conceptual rigour of their previous ignorance, however that conception might have appeared to have happened.

At this time, recovery from the many forms of the bellwether disease of Addiction is the paradoxical beachhead of sanity that has arrived at the junction of two eras, as the Age of Pisces gives way to the Age of Aquarius.

As at every previous time of momentous change known to Mankind, however the history of change might have been disrupted, Messengers from the Unseen decloak and engage in the almost impossible mission of trying to help the collective engage in work that is really only the province of the individual.

This time of momentous change is no different. The help is at hand. The challenge facing the helpers and those to be helped is the same, namely one of engagement.

In reading this piece, we make a start.

Sacred Illness

​”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.

This then is the core of what I’ve been hammering on about for nearly five years now on my two blogs and on my social media channels. Mass mental epidemics that are bringing Mankind to the Armageddon Point of known history. I have rooted all these mental epidemics to one descriptor, stuck-addiction©️.

How can this be true then, this simple Jungian diagnostic that is now eighty years old? Surely, we still have, as a species, the idea of God in our cultures don’t we? There are still religions established, even at the core of national Constitutions as in Great Britain and Iran. Half of the world’s population can be counted as nominally rooted in the religions traced back to Abraham, whilst much of the other half are residing within the religious oceans of Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism and the con-science influencers of the likes of Confucius and Lao Tzu.

So, just what is going on now on this planet ruled by the hegemony of the US Empire within this religiously calibrated year that is “in the year of our Lord, 2018”?

It seems then, that in the same way that a vicar can need Alcoholics Anonymous despite being in the business of God propagation, in the same way that Iran welcomes in Narcotics Anonymous aware that orthodox Islam cannot recover massive numbers of muslim drug-addicts, in the same way that China is included in the AA global listings – so there is something amiss with the ideas about God and the practicalities of recovery, when those ideas about God break down and/or get lost.

The narratives of disconnect between the political and corporate leaders and the systemic bodies that they try to lead and the effect of that disconnect, comprise the bulk of what passes as the news broadcasts that blare relentlessly now 24/7 around the globe.

The old ideas of God are lost, broken and impractical. The brand leader Christianity is so far adrift from the Christ that they try to sell as to render the whole enterprise ethically bankrupt when looking at the global Christian Churches across all denominations and at their land holdings, bank holdings, abuse litigation processes and general hypocrisy.

The Islamic world is collapsing in on itself as powerful Islamic states prosecute war against weaker Islamic states at behest of a pluralist non Islamic Empire ruled by billionaires who worship only money as it mainlines their craving to wrestle power from anyone who seems to threaten their sworn allegiance to “God”!

Fanatics across this globalised cauldron of internetted connectivity, irrespective of which side of the law they find themselves, writhe and gouge within their bodies of influence against the predictable effects of a global elite and their Golden Calf Policy Initiatives.

The ‘non-dull’ people, ie the HSPs or highly sensitive people who have reacted immediately to the culturally induced loss of God over the last eighty years have, as I’ve said many times, have given Mankind a door open to a new way of approaching the Armageddon that now paces around global newscasting like a wounded, angry animal.

The first step for the possible landing of a new era for the masses is for the leaders to understand that if they don’t wake up to what is really happening around them, then WWIII is inevitable.

The next step is for the global leaders to accept that their insanity is not confined to a projection of professional concern upon the present President of The Empire and whether he is insane or not – all Executive function, whether political or corporate, is to a greater or lesser extent dislocated from the task that it is struggling to achieve.

The insanity of doing the same thing expecting a different result refuses to see that the global monetary system has died.

A new way of doing business for the next one thousand years has to be co-created as quickly as possible.

Mankind has the intelligence, the courage and possibility of building a new way of interaction for itself and of becoming Humankind, but it needs the implementation of Spiritual Principles.

If there needs to be the physical appearance of one archetypal closer of this era as prophesied by Scriptures across all global cultures, then so be it – if only to prove once and for all that whilst the story is true, the moral of the story is more important to a recipient than any one character, no matter how sanctified that character is and has always been in the story, if there is to be seen that The Many have any practical connection whatsoever with The One.

Then all we need is the mad man of God prepared to stand up and say that he’s here …. hmmm ….

10 Years On

From 10 years ago I commented on this BBC report:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/blogs/newsnight/2007/12/who_should_pay.html

“Addiction is a disease, a syndrome of various symptoms that relate back to a tap-root of meaninglessness and erroneous material or behavioural prioritisation within a personal or community expression.
It is a disease that thrives in the fog of miscommunication and mixed messages. Approaches striving in all good will to provide solutions to alcohol addicts should beware of the quicksand of competing diagnostic and treatment models lest their efforts fall into the black hole of the very problem, addiction, that they are striving to alleviate.
Not until the medical establishment more clearly recognises addiction as a disease, similar to the American approach, a disease with many forms and variations of which alcohol addiction is but one, shall policy makers be able to escape from the present dilemma within which the diseased tail is wagging the beleaguered dog of social policy.
Alcohol is not the problem, it is the revealer of the paucity and hypocrisy of the inner state of too many individuals in our collective. Alcohol abusers are the boils on the face of our society. We either treat such spots topically and cosmetically and look for the very quick fix in policy terms that the addicts look for in substance terms, or we look deeper into the constitution of the body of our society to see where the ills really originate. That problem source has more in common with a personal Golden Calf than it has with a non existent political silver bullet.
A society is simply a collection of individuals, when sufficient numbers of individuals wish to change their inner worlds, then society changes.”

Nothing has changed around making the connection that Addiction is a primary disease, not merely symptomatic of other disorders. So society has suffered the crash of the banks because of addiction, has suffered stagnation, Brexit, Corporate scandal, Celebrity scandal, Church abuse scandal, UK absurd election debacle mid a sick Brexit, Trump and the US Empire’s global rudeness – and on go the worsening conditions.

As conditions have worsened, my term stuck-addiction©️ seems less a term ridiculed and more like the only explanation in town to describe the caricature and pantomime that unfolds before us every week.

This global illness that is collapsing the Executive function in business and politics may go into a spontaneous remission, anything is possible. The  missing Top-line that would reconnect the incessant Bottom-line driven systems restoring current and conscience may magically appear to put money back into service, the accountants into the back-office again and out of the front-office ….

Don’t hold your breath.

The Poor

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Poverty_in_the_United_Kingdom?wprov=sfla1

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.

If Morris West is true in his vision, then his book In The Shoes Of The Fisherman offers the only end-game for the 21st century body of Christ i.e. the Churches, they have to follow Christ, after giving all of their money to the poor.

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.

The barrier to these Executive behaviour changes is a barrier made up of fear, denial and the inevitable lack of vision that stuck-addiction©️ induces in people who are labouring under tremendous responsibility.

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.

Brand Leaders?

​Though all of Mankind can take solace in the Saul to St. Paul redemptive template, or the “your’s was not the hand that slew” response to Moses when he doubted his mission for having killed an Egyptian soldier, or the “let him with no sin cast the first stone” statement from “The Brand-leader Himself”, still, the following story is not easy for the largely Christian Empire of the globe to keep unprocessed.

The truth is that if the brand of global Christianity with its pastoral, educative, child-care, health advisory and legally binding institutional services along with its property ownership and management of financial services was invented today, it would not be allowed to get off the ground.

Such is the disparity now between the core brand messages of The Founder, such as “give away all your money to the poor and follow me”, and the actuality of the land owning, client abusing, elaborately robed and upper class appearance of the staff when juxtaposed with the actual existential condition of millions and millions of erstwhile Christians, then it is no wonder that the wheels have fallen off the wagon of Anno Domini.

The last scene of “In the Shoes of The Fisherman” strike me as the only answer to a beginning to a journey out of the present global crisis of faith in organised religion – I suggest you search for the clip of the film of the Morris West story, or look at the rest of my blog.

As for Christ …. you’ll find Him on the streets, shoulder to shoulder with the transparently suffering, as usual.
