How best to comprehend the actions emanating from the minds of individual leaders as they lead the collective mindset of their inner circles of associates?
The only way that I can begin to approach the above question is by drawing upon my own actual experience of life, of leadership, of illness, of personal healing and of being a healer.
This age we live in is no different from any other known age. Leaders and celebrities rely to a large extent upon “aura” to maintain their roles with others in their various circles of power and influence. The word “fluence” being the word that leaders “put” on people and systems in the fetish work that power insists upon within the Descartes fallacy that has prevailed on Earth now for so many generations.
I think therefore I am is the error that elevates having thoughts to the position of God in a person or in the system that such a person might lead.
Having thoughts is not the same as being.
Having is on the mental/physical interface of a person or a system, being is from the mental/metaphysical interface of a person or a system.
Having is the bottom line of the equals sign, being is the top line of the equals sign.
The above presentation is a portal from the paradox to the orthodox to help find a way through the challenges facing Mankind today. It is a way to help to illustrate the fact that Mankind is borne by Humankind.
Delusional thinking is an inevitable consequence of I think therefore I am. When power, money and influence become reliant upon a delusion being defended in the public domain, that is the history of Mankind.
I am certain that over the years of my social media exposure many people after having been initially attracted, left quickly and placed me in the “well meaning but delusional” box.
As the world news exposes events, then just who and what is the consequence of delusional thinking is an essential question rather than merely an important question.
In the illusion of solid matter, as challenged by quantum mechanics, Mankind’s political and business enterprises can deteriorate behind an occlusion of the smoke and mirrors of factions in collusion with agendas that are hidden and different from their public actions.
Then the Chinese Whispers of allusions fuel conspiracy theorists whilst the hidden agendas unfold, until eventually the whirlwind of events blows away the covering smoke of partisan power subterfuges and suddenly, there is World War.
Empires have risen and fallen in the past in their micro worlds. As the British Empire fell into the American Empire the World Wars have been in the macro world.
World War III is the ultimate macro insanity that hovers in the delivery room of Man’s inhumanity to Man as May approaches in The Year of Our Lord 2022.
When the mind is controlling everything and trying to create its own being, then its own mental collapse is inevitable and this is now clear in the global epidemic of individual mental illness, an epidemic that is contained within a global body politic that itself is now clearly also evidencing an insanity in its collective governmental Executive functions.
Am I delusional?
There is a rapidly closing window of opportunity for those heads of power to whom this post is sent to answer the delusionquestion comparatively for themselves. For those in the body of Mankind, there is nothing to be done in the same way that the perfectly healthy body of a suicidally ideated person can only wait and watch and pray.
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.
So, in May 2019 the quoted UK Guardian article cited “an epidemic of poor mental health” appearing across ranks of staff in the higher education system of Britain.
Since then of course, factor in Covid-19 and the conditions on the ground are now a calamity almost beyond orthodox analysis.
I use the term orthodox analysis advisedly, because it is the orthodox structures of medical diagnosis and societal analysis that are now shown to be simply part of The Addictive System that is now in utter collapse.
My work over the last eight years has been to build upon the work of Anne Wilson Schaef whose work is photographed above. My development of Diction Resolution Therapy stands because of the urgency of the situation mentioned above.
Over and over again my working out of this message that, The Addictive System is destroying itself, has been and is the purpose of my blogs and my social media postings. Even to the point of the Universe arranging a headline that appears from anywhere on the face of the planet when a person searches in Google for unseen leader of the world …. go ahead …. try it for yourself!!
As this sub-pandemic of Covid-19 carries on imposing curfews on Mankind’s collective affairs unheard of without bombs and bullets flying, it maybe behoves us all to realise that global cultures are held in this stasis not wholly because of the efforts of our leaders, but rather despite them.
When the main source of supposed healing, the drug companies, are found to be corrupted and complicit with willful misdiagnosis and mistreatment of the primary disease of Addiction, then the challenges facing the delivery of my message is put into perspective …. the blog post below highlights this.
The disease of Addiction is described by the psychiatrist M. Scott Peck as a sacred disease. The 12 Step Programme describes this same spiritual malady as only having a spiritual solution.
So, because the message now is that all global cultures are spiritually sick in The Addictive System within which Covid-19 is but a symptom and that because the conditions facing Mankind are not just mental and physical, then there is hope that behaviour can change.
The ancient spiritual principles contained in the 12 Steps pull together the broken behaviours in people and then therefore in collections of people. This is portrayed in the schematic below and the yellow separation marks are removed as the 12 Steps are internalised and connected, Universal consciousness is contacted and individually deepened in conscience.
Then the challenge simply is how to deliver this message and where to deliver it where it has any chance at all of becoming acted upon. The next blog post was written over seven years ago wrestling with just such a challenge.
I shall convey this posting once more through the modern channels of contact with the system. I know that the message is to be denied, God knows that is not my problem. My job is to simply carry the message.
The first and most important step is to admit and name the disease, both in ourselves and in our society. Anne Wilson Schaef’s brilliant and compassionate dissection of addictive behavioural patterns leaves us no option but to see this truth. However, the message of this book is essentially optimistic, because once the process of awareness is triggered, healing begins.
(Citation from the back cover of the book photographed above, When Society Becomes an Addict.)
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
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.
Actors train to be able to pick up a rôle, learn a part with the words and the actions given to them, to rehearse and then to perform, by others.
In recordings and in live theatrical performances audiences engage with productions of “art” that depict both factual and fictional situations plus also mixtures of fact and fiction under artistic licence within the law.
In the process of acting, the consciences of particular performers are protected for them by the disciplines that they acquire within their training. So they can portray many difficult situations as “acts”, that if they were real would possibly destroy them…..
Indeed, many actors play out the lives of other people from their actual lives, lives so dangerous and destructive that a story is told for all the reasons that any story is ever told.
Actors and audiences alike are protected from significant damage psychologically within the admission of and into an illusion, that all parties implicitly sign up to, even though actors and audiences alike are often changed forever within the theatrical creativity that is being given and received.
Politics is not the same as theatrical entertainment. The protections explicitly learned by actors and implicitly accepted by audiences are not given to politicians and their electorates.
Electorates expect their leaders to tell them the truth, to be real, not to be acting as if they were real.
What is the thing that is protected within the process of engagement by actors and their audiences but not within politicians and their electorates?
That thing is conscience.
Conscience is acquired along with executive function as a developmental process in children. These two phenomena are intrinsic to the deepening of consciousness and to the individualising of people into their becoming ever more Human in their personal lifelong journey, a journey shared with others.
From Shakespeare onwards, as fiction reflects political factions, then the public consumer adopts certain positions vis-à-vis how truthful powerful people actually are, but still it can be argued that at least in the young in any generation, there is a burning yearning for leaders with very low levels of guile in their actions of public service.
A lot of words then to state the obvious, actors act, leaders lead. One has an indirect drive, one a direct drive, where that driver is conscience.
A psychopath has no connection to a conscience as an analytic descriptor of brief behaviour.
DICTION in the above schematic is paramount to CONSCIENCE. It is a place where the invisible and visible meet, where the ascending and descending meet in transcending. It is a place of energy meeting words.
Actors can healthily addict themselves to a rôle, turn on will-power which is what it is to be able to addict oneself and more important, turn off will-power when the performance is finished.
What then goes wrong with political leaders?
The answer is in the flow chart as addiction and contradiction interface.
When actors are rehearsing a part, they practice fluidly across the dynamics of contradiction as any problems are solved within a production of will that has already been completed by the writer. So the energy of creativity from the invisible to the visible lends itself protectively during the rehearsal process with much less chance of fundamental creative collapse at the systemic addiction point because the words are a given.
Collapse can take place within the individual Diction pathways of actors as their dictionary of expertise is checked, energised and enlarged, but this is technique danger as against the pressure of trying to be unique.
To be seen spontaneously by an audience in an actuallyunique mission is the Holy Grail of leaders’ performances, whereas audiences respond more to a rehearsed factuallyunique performance from actors.
The adulteration of the above paragraph is the cause of the dissonance that is the inner hurricane raging through the inner landscapes of Mankind.
Politicians in the world today increasingly can’t function and their facts are so broken even amongst themselves, as to be incommunicable to any audience anywhere. Politicians have tried over decades to be more like actors than leaders, but without even the most basic debating skills necessary for any actual debate to take place, that’s even if the debating chambers were not already terminally disconnected by the bribery of the corporate or criminal lobby promise procurement process.
Political debate, like the inner debate of personal problem solving, crucially requires the full connection of malediction to benediction as shown in the above diagram.
When the dots are taken out of the Yin-Yang, then where that aberration is disturbingly and systemically imposed, eventually creativity dies closely followed by life-forms.
In a person it is resentment that removes the inner dots from the inner Yin-Yang which then produces such levels of inner animosity that the misunderstood word addiction collapses behaviour to the point of death.
Because politicians are not good actors with that profession’s learned protection for conscience, politicians get whipped against personal conscience as if that process is without consequence or that somehow the Party will absolve them.
Politicians, their corporate or organised worker funders, their organised religious backers, their ideological academics, all have made so many accommodations to conscience over decades and even centuries, accommodations to The Human Being One, that systemically the Yin-Yang dots are virtually destroyed everywhere.
The electorate as an audience start when young knowing, or thinking that they know that theaters and cinemas are fictional, but that Parliament is factual.
They know that their favourite actors play so called good and bad characters in different performances in ways that don’t collapse the overall entertainment and/or learning function which is built into the receiving of the professional rôle playing in an overall theatrical process. In other words there is a cognitive sonance in the experience, it makes a connected sense to an inner dictionary.
When leaders and politicians break their words over and over again, either because their strategies are impossible to realise in practice, or when leaders and politicians deliberately spin words to the point of meaninglessness first in their own inner dictionaries, then in the collective systemic dictionaries, ultimately in the national Constitutional dictionary, then their words of attempted leadership are unrecognisable to audiences, just so much partisan jargon to a point where many people’s ability to differentiate illusion and reality starts to break down into cognitive dissonance.
Britain now leads the world in promulgated cognitive dissonance, an industry that’s been filled with spin-doctors and propaganda for the past thirty years since the advertising agency Satchi & Satchi took over Thatcher’s UK messages to the public, an industry that went into overdrive with Blair to finally crash and burn in Brexit.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (John 1:1)
The problems facing leaders, facing collapsing systems, facing collapsing people, are global. These problems are indicative of a breakdown of words. This breakdown is a spiritual illness, though the symptoms are physical and mental, this dissonance is an illness that only has a catalytic like global spiritual remedy.
“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”.
