Riches and Power

The Qur'an XXXVIII 76 - 88

Qarun was doubtless,
Of the people of Moses; but
He acted insolently towards them:
Such were the treasures We
Had bestowed on him, that
Their very keys would
Have been a burden to
A body of strong men,
Behold, his people said to him:
"Exult not, for Allah loveth not
Those who exult (in riches).

" But seek with the (wealth)
Which Allah has bestowed on thee,
The Home of the Hereafter,
Nor forget thy portion in this
World: but do thou good,
As Allah has been good
To thee, and seek not
(Occasions for) mischief in the land:
For Allah loves not those
Who do mischief. "

He said:" This has been given
To me because of a certain
Knowledge which I have."
Did he not know that Allah
Had destroyed, before him,
(Whole) generations, - which were
Superior to him in strength
And greater in the amount
(Of riches) they had collected?
But the wicked are not
Called (immediately) to account
For their sins.

So he went forth among
His people in the (pride
Of his worldly) glitter.
Said those whose aim is
The Life of this World:
"Oh! that we had the like
Of what Qarun has got!
For he is truly a lord
Of mighty good fortune!"

But those who had been granted
(True) knowledge said: "Alas
For you! The reward of Allah
(In the Hereafter) is best
For those who believe
And work righteousness: but this
None shall attain, save those
Who steadfastly persevere (in good)."

Then We caused the earth
To swallow up him and
His house: and he had not
(The least little) party
To help him against Allah,
Nor could he defend himself.

And those who had envied
His position the day before
Began to say on the morrow:
"Ah! It is indeed Allah
Who enlarges the provision
Or restricts it, to any
Of His servants He pleases!
Had it not been that Allah
Was gracious to us, He
Could have caused the earth
To swallow us up! Ah!
Those who reject Allah
Will assuredly never prosper."

That Home of the Hereafter
We shall give to those
Who intend not high-handedness
Or mischief on earth:
And the end is (best)
For the righteous.

If any does good, the reward
To him is better than
His deed; but if any
Does evil, the doers of evil
Are only punished (to the extent)
Of their deeds.

Verily He Who ordained
The Qur-an for thee, will bring
Thee back to the Place
Of Return. Say: "My Lord
Knows best who it is
That brings true guidance,
And who is in manifest error."

And thou who hadst not expected
That the Book would be
Sent to thee except as
A mercy from thy Lord:
Therefore lend not thou support
In any way to those
Who reject (Allah's message).

And let nothing keep thee
Back from the signs of Allah
After they have been revealed
To thee: and invite (men)
To thy Lord, and be not
Of the company of those
Who join gods with Allah.

And call not, besides Allah,
On another god. There is
No god but He. Everything
(That exists) will perish
Except His own Face.
To Him belongs the Command,
And to Him will ye
(All) be brought back.

I have quoted the above at length because even though there are dangers in a kindergarten literalism which is so often the ground of fanaticism and impossible obsession and should therefore be eschewed at all costs, still there is enough of a timeless message that never goes away.

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.

Demiurges

“The alcoholic is like a tornado roaring his way through the lives of others. Hearts are broken. Sweet relationships are dead. Affections have been uprooted. Selfish and inconsiderate habits have kept the home in turmoil.

We feel a man is unthinking when he says that sobriety is enough. He is like the farmer who came up out of his cyclone cellar to find his home ruined.

To his wife, he remarked, “Don’t see anything the matter here, Ma. Ain’t it grand the wind stopped blowin’?””

(From the Basic Text 12 Step Programme)

So, the leaders of the free world – and by extension all of us stuck in addiction to a lifestyle that’s destroying Mankind and its environment in a soulless money-first fixation – come up out of their lockdown bunkers, wave their Oaths of Office metaphorically in Zoomed-up speeches of hand-wringing to pay lip service to the Lord who sets the clock at 2020AD, Who said that it’s impossible to serve two Masters, as they then bow to Money and try to say,

“Don’t see anything the matter here, Ma. Ain’t it grand the wind stopped blowin’?”

That’s not going to do it Ladies and Gentleman.

That’s not the leap of faith that the G20 leadership needs, it is not the rigorous honesty that Earth’s people are crying out for.

https://lifeisreturning.com/2019/05/15/show-down-a-fiction/

You’re not looking politically down each others’ financial and military barrels any more, you’re looking down Ma’s barrel and She’s not happy.

So, what to do?

First, have a read of the text below as the reality of the fabric of this planet is expressed for you by Mr J G Bennett.

Demiurges are described as “Intelligences of a higher order than man.”
“death and resurrection”

https://youtu.be/J5zJ5uSfaFA

So, Mr Bennett describes a situation that, if you have been prepared to trust it’s true, is of the greatest significance should those in positions of global power feel in any way concerned that their remit of responsibility is becoming overtaken by events.

How would a Sacred Individual make contact with those whose responsibility it is to govern Mankind through its existing structures of legislative command and logistical control?

The answer might be, by all of the most modern and powerful means possible. The most powerful means of making contact in the early 21st century is the World Wide Web.

Making contact is not possible without tact.

Tactics are only realisable with tact and the ability to feel a way forward in a very dark and dangerous situation requires a form of tactile skill which is the metaphysical equivalent of such a skill that might be more clearly understandable in all of its physical applications: yet the connection of this tactile skill from the physical with the metaphysical is now vital.

There is a plan. As it says in The Qur’an –

“They plan, and Allah plans. Surely, Allah is the Best of planners.” – [Quran, 8:30]

So, how can this best of plans be brought into a clearer resolution at this time of global pause in June 2020?

My work with this blog and with Diction Resolution Therapy is to bring a way to see what is happening globally at this time.

Tact is of the utmost importance, but eventually because contact is a process requiring both a transmission and a reception, there comes a point when the transmitter informs the receivers that there is a limited time for this transmission.

Clearly as Mr Bennett states, the capacity to receive my transmission rests in a spiritual nature first and foremost. If it is that the religious leaders who have received my transmission (and they have) do not believe me, then the chances of their overall political managers being encouraged to formulate the policies needed to create a new way of doing global business are seemingly non-existent.

https://lifeisreturning.com/2019/09/09/a-veil-able-to-heal/

Notwithstanding this seeming impossible impasse, my responsibility is discharged at the point of my transmissions and above the Demiurges, there is God.

So, again, I transmit to any who receive this as clearly and as tactfully as I can, ready to play my rôle in The Almighty’s ancient plan. Just how this is received is between you and that One Who plans.

I don’t know … truly.

A veil able to heal


Lakshmi (/ˈlʌkʃmi/; Sanskrit: लक्ष्मी, IAST: lakṣmī) or Laxmi, is the Hindu goddess of wealth, fortune and prosperity. She is the wife and shakti (energy) of Vishnu, one of the principal deities of Hinduism and the Supreme Being in the Vaishnavism Tradition. (Wikipedia)

Why bring this information at this time?

“The time to act is now”. Prince Charles, DAVOS 2020

Wealth, fortune and prosperity seem to be the Holy Grail at the core of the global situation that fills the news broadcasts 24/7.

The 12 Step Programme, that has brought happiness, joy and freedom to millions of hitherto hopelessly collapsed people over the last 85 years, is a spiritual instruction.

What does this mean?

It means that when certain people have tried to wrest wealth, fortune and prosperity from their culture relying solely upon their own educated mental and physical efforts, whether they thought that they believed in a god or not, only to to find that their best efforts led them to totally collapse in their particular form(s) of the disease of Addiction, then these people had to be introduced to the spiritual disease that was their actual problem if they were to have any chance of surviving at all.

When I say actual problem it is because very many people, especially those who have been healed by accessing the 12 Step Programme, are confounded in their collapse by their previous attempts to understand and/or justify their time-line of degradation and humiliation.

Those that could be persuaded of the true nature of their condition survived, those that could not let go of their old preconceptions died.

So today, despite the increasing sophistication of globalisation and the concomitant destruction of Mankind’s major religions in eyes of increasing numbers of people, the 12 Step Programme remains the gold standard treatment for the disease of Addiction (across all forms) in every rehab in the world.

There are many derivatives of the 12 Step Programme that are asset stripped by the well-intentioned intellects that have baulked at the word God, as it appears to them to insult their scientific predispositions.

These derivatives are increasingly seen to bring more problems than they seek to alleviate as can be seen in the latest court judgements against Johnson and Johnson in the US State of Oklahoma.

So, the derivates that industrialise the effort to help addicted people, when that help becomes itself corrupted by trying to generate wealth, fortune and prosperity by covertly debunking a proven 12 Step Programme, sickness builds upon sickness and the corporate bodies then act like addicts themselves.

Eventually, more and more people and more and more companies and more and more nations become sick as the proven template (physical, mental, spiritual) for organic Consciousness to grow here on Earth is systematically destroyed by Mankind’s incessant pursuit of wealth, fortune and prosperity by inhuman means.

What are inhuman means of pursuing wealth, fortune and prosperity?

Inhuman means of trying to achieve anything, are those means that can eventually be seen to harm people, places and things on Earth to the point that the harm produced cannot be justified anymore in terms of money produced from that harm.

Mankind is at this tipping point of measurability now.

Politically, commercially, financially, environmentally, locally, nationally, internationally, the KPIs of our ability to cohere as sentient beings managing our ecosystems amidst other sentient beings, all indications are now saying that the mental and physical world of Mankind is collapsing.

What about the spiritual world of Humankind?

Religions are part of Mankind’s mental world, they are paid lip-service to by political leaders and policed by their armed forces as corporate agendas are dispensed by law-makers to be stamped upon the body of the culture that they bind, by the illusion of consent or not, depending upon the starkness of the particular President concerned.

Mankind and Humankind are related, but not the same in practice.

Mankind would destroy itself in its pursuit of wealth, fortune and prosperity, Humankind would not. (link added 6/10/19)

This is the tipping point facing all of us at this time, the reconnection of Mankind to Humankind – or not.

The impetus for this reconnection must almost by definition come catalytically from Humankind to Mankind.

How much would this reconnection be worth to a disconnected phenomenon called for the want of a better term, Mankind?

If Mankind does not think that there is anything called Humankind that it could receive help from to become, then of course any such offer of reconnection would be deemed to be not just worthless, but more than likely irritating and insulting.

Mankind measures its success in terms of billions and trillions of dollars extracted from billions of people, Humankind measures its success in terms of a singular presence interacted within billions of people.

How can Humankind reconnect with Mankind?

Through the = sign.

Mankind is the bottom-line of the = sign, Humankind is more than just the top-line though, Humankind is the reconnection of the connection, the = sign itself.

I am here both to repair your terminal opposites ☯️ and equally to reconnect you to the flow of Source 🕉️.

How much is this worth to you, as a question, will not be appreciated by you whilst you carry on consigning your very self to non-existence within a thinly veiled resentment toward everything and everybody (else).

There are veils between where you are now and what you might become, these veils cannot be removed by your present sense of self, they can be removed by what Lakshmi actually is, that is, One Energy (Shakti). AUM.

Consequences

Jeffrey Epstein was found dead in his prison cell today. The mega story surrounding his trial is full of group gossip, modern day Empire sensationalism full of celebrity association, unproven liaisons, allegations of immoral activity involving espionage, royalty, businessmen, computer programmers, religious and political tribalism, bankers and auditors with their smoke and mirrors and on, and on and on ad nauseam, except that it seems Mankind never gets sick of it.

More simply, a man has died, may God have Mercy upon his soul.

Materially, none of us are here to judge another person more than the law of the land is empowered so to do.

Spiritually, a person faces the consequences of their life according to all the religions known to Man.

If there is any lesson to be learned from the events surrounding the death of Jeffrey Epstein, then it is one of seeing one’s own behaviour with the same investigative rigour that one might be tempted to apply to Jeffrey Epstein’s demise.

“Let he who has no sin cast the first stone,” are the words of Christ that rush toward me whenever anyone else’s sexual behaviours are under scrutiny, legal or otherwise.

For me, this does not mean that anything goes, there is and must be the law of the land and in my experience of how a civilisation’s law comes into being then I trust the line from the 12 Step Programme which says that, “without help it is too much for us. But there is One with all Power. That One is God, may you find Him now.”

In the working of a 12 Step Programme, the principles of contrition, of facing the law, of facing up to sexualised behaviour that is selfish and self-seeking, of forming an ideal for future conduct and of making real amends for past behaviours that honour those hurt, these principles are clearly introduced as vitally important for a Human being’s health.

There can be a modern-day intellectual asset stripping of religious texts that can render all mention of Divine punishment as being in need of reform. New-age messages of meditation and of how to live in the present without being frightened of God or of the need to worry about the karmic judgement that the bardo experience delivers to the newly deceased, these new-age messages may need to be revised.

Jalalludin Rumi is often mentioned as a source of luvviduvvyness that takes his actual life and work well out of context. I offer the poem at the top of this blog-post as a balance toward how Rumi actually saw his life as it flowed between his birth and death.

He seems to be saying that a simple and expedient destruction of the foundations of the Ancient Way without even trying for a personal recourse to a deeper possible interpretation of said foundations whilst keeping them intact, is a lie.

All of my personal journey has had a basis of the need to atone for my ignorant mistakes, to face up to my past selfish and self-seeking behaviour, to ask for help to change from God as I understand God, to do this before I have to as we all have to, when we die.

Everywhere the systemic bodies are acting like junkies. Leaders of governments, religions, banks, utility companies, health services, large corporations globally, the news of their alleged and actual sexual and financial misconduct explodes into the 24/7 global media machine on an increasingly regular basis.

Self-styled mystics, messengers, holders of so-called secrets across global religious vehicles have been the founders of murderous sex-cults, manipulators of thrill seekers and of the damaged and vulnerable for age after age.

When the usual criminality of vice is exposed in its age-old setting it is upsetting enough for ordinary folk. When social and political leaders are exposed as having been stuck in corruption it is a great shock. When counterfeit spiritual leaders are shown to have been hiding in plain sight then it seems the final straw.

These are the days of huge macro change. Nothing new is being shown, it is however a matter of scale. This is not just the analysis of the micro changes in history, of civilisations rising and falling looked at by academics. This is the time of a chance for Mankind to become led by Humankind, or for a continued collapse of global leadership plunging the planet into Atlantis II.

It is not just up to the new leaders that must appear, it is up to whether Mankind can then submit enough to be led.

There is a global disease, a bottom line fixation and a top line disintegration. Elites are being exposed as predators infecting systems further with blackmail and deliberate corruption of good-will with ill-will.

Conspiracy theorists are of little help as they only increase anxiety with their half-baked information that does not integrate the Singularity of Consciousness.

The challenge to bear witness to a metaphysical message that is not just an asset stripping exercise upon old and failing religions is impossible without God instigates the preparation and the delivery of the resolution to such a challenge.

Because of the foundation work that I have done, and the work that this foundation grants to me on a daily basis, I can help translate so-called spiritual words into a twenty-first century vernacular if they are too much of a hindrance for people who have decided that they want to try to change their behaviours. (link added 4/10/19)

What I do not change and simply repeat are the basic principles, in fact the basic principle quoted above from the AA 12 Step Programme, actually from Al Ghawth that is that, “without help it is too much for us. But there is One with all Power. That One is God, may you find Him now.”

the HU man healing

A video on Certainty from a Facebook page

Presenting “the HU man healing”

(Postscript added 23/03/20 – Facebook seem to have deleted the video from this link 🤔)

This venture moves my writing and counselling into a more clear integration as the turbulence around the local, national and international events impacts more intensely upon the news reports.

https://qr.ae/pNjm8s

The inner habitations of the more sensitive people in the world are having to withstand the bombardments of language dropped by politicians who seem to be either deranged or working from a populist script that many thought would never erupt again into the G20 Nations on Earth.

A retired Intelligence Chief, who must have checked with presently operational Intelligence Chiefs before going on the record, has voiced concerns about the calibre of the serving cohort of UK politicians to the point of doubting their ability to meet the scale of the Governmental challenges that face us all.

Diplomats in the know describe the leading democracy on Earth as being unfit for purpose.

China and Russia are reported playing parts in the global dramas of brinkmanship and asymmetric warfare that seem impossible for the regular experts to make any sense of, so how are the public to protect their inner mental habitations under the onslaught of what is now ten years of newscasts causing huge levels of cultural dissonance post the global financial crash.

An illness paradigm offers a way forward. Jared Diamond in his book “Upheaval” that has been recommended by Bill Gates has opened this conversation up on the highest echelons of power on our planet.

My work continues to provide help for those leaders of good-will (postscript added 23/03/20 – again Facebook seem to have deleted this link) who are necessarily becoming more aware of the depth of the challenge facing Mankind, who are necessarily therefore also becoming aware of the need to embrace some simple principles of Universal Spirituality without which their Executive functions have no hope of becoming repaired to the function of leadership that is presently only a lip-service.

The letters H and U, when seen through the valency of the spiritual reason that English is the global language of this time on Earth, when brought together as HU and placed in front of the word “man”, manifest the power of Singularity that describes once again the ancient portal for this age.

For truly it is the letters in words that lets things happen.

Show down – a fiction.

The above picture is from the cover of a work of fiction, written in 1981 about a time of global crisis with a backdrop opening of the resignation of a Pope and the appearance of an enigmatic therapist.

Mankind lives a fiction written by history. My whole life experience brings to life much of a fiction written by another, about a phenomenon anyway that many write off as a fiction but which is now in terms of West’s narrative setting, writing itself as fact in the crisis ridden global news bulletins 24/7.

This video about Subud by J G Bennett is pertinent also to provide a context.

Here below is another work of fiction from me this time ….

___________

As the orthodox structures of governance and the comparative importance of people by measurement of money and networked power to influence contracts continues to unravel, there will be a window of opportunity opened for the Old Guard to pass through.

The message of the presence of Spiritual Masters on Earth has long been surmised and recorded by writers from all cultures.

https://qr.ae/pNjm8s

The Masters never appear it seems unless there are great and compelling reasons so to do. The 21st century Master who draws the short straw is sure to be faced with the usual barrage of interrogation.

The politicians and religionists are bound to accuse any appearing contemporary Pied Piper of fraud by placing before said appearance their requirements of the usual sets of proofs and demonstrations that a real Master would in their view be able to deliver to them easily.

They might say something like,

“Do something then to show us proof of your Higher Power’s actual existence if you want us to believe that you have a message that we must accept.”

At this point, at this particular time, a Master will turn the table and the failing leaders will be hemmed in by that which they used to mock at, as The Qur’an says.

The Master might say something like,

“I don’t have to do anything, I and my ilk are already doing it. Mankind’s cultures are hanging onto coherence at this time despite your best efforts, not because of them. The slaughterers amongst you are only held back from full blown mayhem by Us. It is our stopping doing that you should be really concerned about if you could only see past your self-obsessed reliance on money, but you never have in the past.

If We, receptive in Our utter service to The Almighty’s command, withdraw Our restraint from you then you will completely destroy yourselves in a full blown weaponising of your particular hypocritical version of your God’s religion or of your intellectual hubris that is communism.

Hitherto you have been continuing in the partial asymmetric destruction that you foist onto each other, which you imagine that you can control, and you pretend that you are straining to stop yourselves from rapid escalations of physical warfare. You actually strain against Us.

If you want further illusions to feed and increase your sense of certainty that I and my ilk are fictional, then call in the well-rehearsed entertainers like David Blane or Uri Geller, call in the medical Crash Teams with their miraculous paddles to bring the dead back to life, call in the robot makers and the artificial-intelligence proponents to disinfect the suppurating soul of your electoral rôle play, call in your billionaire spacemen to show Us what you expect should you really be expected to change your ways via a Higher Power’s messenger.

If We decide that this Epoch-change is irrevocably doomed, then We simply stop Our support. You leaders will simply deteriorate into your unstoppable protocols as your international brinkmanship is unleashed into its hypocritical inevitability. We have been at this Atlantean point before.”

I hope that you found the piece entertaining.

Sometimes when assessing a work of fiction, an interviewer might ask an author how much of themselves is actually in the work, in particular characters?

The author of a fictional piece is free to reply or not to reply to such a question. The reader can work it out with diligence, as both The Buddha and Saint Paul advised on their respective legacies given to adherents with a need to know security pass.

The Question

At this time of historic Parliamentary chaos for the UK, this quote from Jung is the only “in/out” vote that the UK faces, the vote that #Brexit mimics. This question reflects the power at the very core of the 12 Step Programme.

This is the affirmative message of Diction Resolution Therapy (DRT) the very reason for my work as ‘Abd al-Mu’min al-Jāmi’ ibn Hulli, the only reason that you are reading this now.

“The decisive question for man is: Is he related to something infinite or not? That is the telling question of his life. Only if we know that the thing which truly matters is the infinite can we avoid fixing our interests upon futilities, and upon all kinds of goals which are not of real importance. Thus we demand that the world grant us recognition for qualities which we regard as personal possessions: our talent or our beauty. The more a man lays stress on false possessions, and the less sensitivity he has for what is essential, the less satisfying is his life. He feels limited because he has limited aims, and the result is envy and jealousy. If we understand and feel that here in this life we already have a link with the infinite, desires and attitudes change.”

— “Memories, Dreams, Reflections” (CG Jung)

From the text of the book Alcoholics Anonymous, the book that published the 12 Step Programme in the 1930s, comes this posing of the question ….

“Our friend was a minister’s son. He attended church school, where he became rebellious at what he thought an overdose of religious education. For years thereafter he was dogged by trouble and frustration.

Business failure, insanity, fatal illness, suicide —these calamities in his immediate family embittered and depressed him. Post-war disillusionment, ever more serious alcoholism, impending mental and physical collapse, brought him to the point to self-destruction.

One night, when confined in a hospital, he was approached by an alcoholic who had known a spiritual experience. Our friend’s gorge rose as he bitterly cried out: “If there is a God, He certainly hasn’t done anything for me!”

But later, alone in his room, he asked himself this question: “Is it possible that all the religious people I have known are wrong?”

While pondering the answer he felt as though he lived in hell. Then, like a thunderbolt, a great thought came. It crowded out all else:

“Who are you to say there is no God?”

This man recounts that he tumbled out of bed to his knees. In a few seconds he was overwhelmed by a conviction of the Presence of God. It poured over and through him with the certainty and majesty of a great tide at flood. The barriers he had built through the years were swept away.

He stood in the Presence of Infinite Power and Love. He had stepped from bridge to shore. For the first time, he lived in conscious companionship with his Creator. Thus was our friend’s cornerstone fixed in place. No later vicissitude has shaken it. His alcoholic problem was taken away. That very night, years ago, it disappeared.

Save for a few brief moments of temptation the thought of drink has never returned; and at such times a great revulsion has risen up in him. Seemingly he could not drink even if he would. God had restored his sanity.

What is this but a miracle of healing? Yet its elements are simple. Circumstances made him willing to believe. He humbly offered himself to his Maker —then he knew.

Even so has God restored us all to our right minds. To this man, the revelation was sudden. Some of us grow into it more slowly. But He has come to all who have honestly sought Him.

When we drew near to Him He disclosed Himself to us!”

___

So then, it seems that an overwhelming urgency, a preparation of the personal place, unique conditions that are often painful through disease, abuse, war, sudden realisation of a true situation as against illusion (as in the case of The Buddha walking away from a rich privileged life), collective adversity as can be seen in the microcosms of both Moses and Muhammad (pbuh), all of this and more has prompted people in the past to ask Jung’s question …. “Is he related to something infinite or not?”

So the conditions cited in the opening of this post are contextualised.

E=mc² explored as Love.

Energy provides power.

Power enables.

Being able means that one can “do”.

Doing brings about experience.

Experience is the touchstone of conscience.

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.

Being and having are connected but not the same. I have a relationship with people, places and things. I am my relationship with God.

So, when all the machinations of ÷,×,+,- are finished with, those efforts are seen in the light of = Love.

E=love, can be borne in mind, but only born in the heart.

Does what you do, do anything?

It would seem then, that the history of Mankind is about powerful people trying to gain power using any means, especially occult means, in order to secure control of people, places and things for ever.

In amongst this seemingly rapacious history, science and technology manifest inventions that seem to be improving the lives of masses of people in a way that is used by some to excuse the huge cost that is cited by others, when trying to look at life on Earth ‘in the round’.

Religions stand upon an account of history that states that God rules everywhere, whatever anyone imagines is happening on Earth.

Why bother doing anything then, if God rules and knows everything?

Does your little effort actually do anything in the wider scheme of planetary life?

Is there a battle actually going on here on Earth between invisible forces that impact upon your viability as an invisible, immortal entity?

The above three questions it seems to me are important to ask a person prior to inviting them to consider joining in with an effort to change the way that we all try to get along with each other here on Earth.
Personal accounts abound when it comes to trying to stand up for, or knock down, God.

It’s all a bit academic isn’t it?

What is to be done, what can God do for you? That’s the simple politics that the 21st century is reduced to, isn’t it?

The plaintive wailings of the Psalms, is that the only constant in Man’s experience of trying to understand life?

I know that there is nothing I can do for any person, place or thing on Earth, except to carry a message of my experience of Consciousness as it resides in my conscience.

Inconsciousness and consciousness is God, as wave and particle is Light, as infinity and finity is you.

If these statements are accepted, then ignorance, or unconsciousness, may be seen as the cause of calamity.

I bring in this new word, inconscious, as a term to describe a person who has broken through the surface of the ground of a new way of being.

It is in our meeting, either physically or metaphysically, that whatever can be done is done. In the interval of our meeting that is happening now.

Message from The Cloud

“1. The UK Unions became corrupted by attaching themselves to Labour after deep money infiltrated their ranks at the beginning.
2. This corruption finally collapsed the UK Unions as they collapsed the Labour government of Callaghan and opened the door to Thatcher.
3. After Thatcher determined that the Executive should never be challenged by organised workforces ever again, she brought in The Parent Charter, The Patient Charter and The Passenger Charter. Health, Education and Transport were the three areas that could paralyse the Executive. Thatcher disintegrated the hitherto flawed yet integrated Health, Transport and Education services, setting school against school, NHS Trust against Trust and dismantling Council transport as well as National Rail Services.
4. Thatcher went too far, as macro power always does. Blair was voted in within the blunt sanity of the UK democracy with a huge majority to restore the real middle ground by reining in Thatcher’s excessive Union culling. Blair hung up the democratic pendulum, he then had to break language and spin words to pretend to be a partisan corrective as the electorate had at a deep level expected.
5. This Union destruction started by Thatcher and completed by Blair, eventually nearly destroyed the Union of Great Britain in a recent referendum and has destroyed the European Union aided and abetted by the US who want no Union except their States.
6. Blair in his torment of guilt that he did not “do God” whilst in Office, a guilt which pushed him into the confessional of a Roman Catholic conversion against the Constitutional UK theocracy that is led by The Queen, and then into a global Faith exercise, now wants to ride back into the limelight to save a Union!
7. This is simply the spiritual illness of stuck-addiction© that has collapsed the global Executive manifesting in all of its increasing cunning manipulations of the insanity of, doing the same thing expecting a different result.”

The above Facebook response to a Guardian article about Tony Blair railing against the collapse of the European Union, when speaking from his ‘Faith Foundation’, exposes the attempted power grabs and the spiritual bankruptcy that renders such grabs now doomed to failure both here in the diseased Unions of Great Britain and Europe as well as, eventually the diseased Union of the American States that is the US Empire.

All states of Union take their power to form in the first place from an attempted Union with God.

My work, as a person in Union with God, is to address this deep dislocation of language that is playing out in the global catastrophe that is exercising the global media so much that people generally cannot see the wood for the trees.

I do not know whether I can succeed, only God knows, my job is to simply carry my message in this cloud.

Devil

The letter from Jung to Wilson is useful to see the compassion in action that is the 12Step Programme, from the point of view of a supporter and interpreter of spiritual phenomena such as Jung was and is.

That Jung mentioned the Devil in his letter is relevant to the turbulence in the world today.

Alcohol is only a symbol, we ourselves are the problem and this is stated in the 12Step programme.

Therefore when Jung describes the yearning for alcohol as actually a yearning for Union with God, then it is this same yearning for Union that hides in the antics of the obese overeater, the frazzled and disgraced sex addict, the gambling addict spending the rent that is the same as the banker who crashes a whole bank, the world leaders who start their justifiable war.

The 12Step diagnostic approach to human self-destruction is to say that it is always a spiritual malady with a spiritual solution. Further, that when the spiritual malady is rectified, then the mental and physical symptoms of said malady sort themselves very efficiently.

There is no intellectual solution for a spiritual disease. That a mind refuses to believe that it is suffering from a spiritual infection, is simply part of the illness.

As a spiritual counsellor, my rôle is first to help a client to see their dysfunction clearly and only then to engage in treatment that is consensual with a clear diagnosis.

The Devil, mentioned by Jung, is a detail of the diagnosis, a detail that is actually part of the spiritual healing once reconnected and repaired to a holistic template of Human transformation, a transformation brought about by experiencing a conscious contact with God.

Union of opposites

Travelling through the calamity of past events
Rocks from outer space
Or missiles from inner space
Destruction happened anyway
Consciousness survived, or has it?

Components of consciousness
Exponents of self regard
Flailing arms of warning, unheeded
For though you need
You do not see, do not hear.

There are no more components
Not until we get through
The challenge of our failure
The cul-de-sac of our fear
Of mistakes proving inadequacy

Everyone makes mistakes
To learn to walk, talk, chalk
To play …. then the fear sets in
Politicians say mistakes render
The opposition unfit to lead

Everyone makes mistakes
To learn anything …. hence
The chasm of separation
Between the leaders and the led
The living and the nearly dead

The Unions are not in union
Kidnapped by capital forces
Now, the only way back
For democracy to be healed
Everyone join a Union

Unshackle the Unions then
To back the local folk
Break the partisan sickness
Break the whip against conscience
Restore the portals to the unseen

Join a Union, local to you
Break the links to Labour
Back the candidate for the locality
Restore independent voices
Break the easy management

The Unions frightened capital
In the early twentieth century
Capital drew it deep inside
The mighty puppet machine
To divide and rule, misrule

Back to the future
Join any Union in your locality
Become active in the Union
Replace sick leadership, sponsor
Any MP/Councillor to work for you

Restore the Unions
Wake up you working folks
All wings of politics
External to the machine
Make capitalism serve

Union is union, any union
Except when it isn’t
God has a Union
Those in it, know it –
Union is union, any union.

Eternal Momentum of Perception

“Mankind cannot find the moment, the now,

Because they look in time.

The ‘now’ is not strapped perilously to the rail lines

Of past and future waiting for the trained to find it.

It is not to be found in time at all – unless

As a personal co-ordinate, an amalgam, a dy by dx.

In maths there is differentiation using two axis x and y.

The y axis is the now, eternity:

The x axis is time.

The particular person is literally a co-ordinate in time and space, a dy by dx,

Learning co-ordination.”

I hope that the above poem opens this piece with the image of a man in the ‘in-between’ place, the place of meeting and coming together, the ‘jam’ where the Logos meets that which is written upon, where the lover meets the beloved.

In the question of mankind being an expression of ‘nature and nurture’, there is only Love from the One to the One within the appearance of matter as an apparent ‘other’, an other that needs twoness to exist in its vehicle forms.

These forms rely upon electricity to charge up awareness via positive and negative poles from the molecular right up to the nervous systems of more developed and animate forms of Life and of course, mankind.

It seems that all matter is the product of a conception and that any conception must necessarily contain all the elements that are described by the various prefixes that illuminate the process.

So we find the words precept(ion), reception, inception, exception, deception, accept(ion) and conception as a sequence that exposes the drama of possibility and necessity as an individual tries to understand their perception of being born and facing death.

Love is the field within which all matter appears and disappears. The rules for conception are simple wherever the drive of creation appears be it physical, mental or spiritual. Opposites are attracted, a conversation or an attempt at ‘knowing’ takes place i.e. a position and its converse are brought together, this being so whether the position is physical, mental or spiritual, and if the coincidence is fortunate then a fertilisation takes place.

Everyone knows about this process in the physical realm of vegetation and animality up to experiencing the marvel of mankind’s physical birthing. Everyone knows of their own culture’s ideals for protecting the process and guarding against disasters of breakdown of support for mankinds’ offspring development.

Love is the support; lack of love seems to be the disaster for any product of physical conception. However, because there is only One in existence, any such disasters are never totally irreconcilable and indeed, the mystery of True Love is often bewildering for mankind. (This perplexing rendition of Cosmic Love can be seen within the stories of the religions for example, whether it is the story of Moses and Khidr in the Qur’an or Arjuna and Krishna in the Bhagavad Gita).

To move on, the rules are the same for conception in the mental realm except that the opposites that attract are internal to an individual, their animus and anima, their left and right brain, their known and unknown, that which has been touched by life’s experience and that which is untouched.

If the inner forces of intellect and intelligence meet in loving tussles within an individual in response to a need to know how to meet a challenge set by Life and if the passion of that meeting of intellect and intelligence is fruitful, then a new conception is produced – a work of art, an invention, a scientific discovery, a business venture of service to mankind or an architectural wonder.

When, in the spiritual realm opposites meet, when God meets Himself as apparent other, in Love, yet in nothing other than His own creation in response to a need to know Himself, then a Cosmos is conceived of and born.

This is best described spherically, a sphere has a centre, a place of connected presence, a rounded sense of The Human, being.

When the maintenance of that Cosmos demands, then certain individuals birth again within an actual reflection of that mystery of spiritual conception, Infinity touching finity for an instant, individuals with the ability to communicate to and help others with, the messages of God as it where, One to one.

This, it seems to me, is the promise and reality of the Abrahamic line of prophets and messengers and their heirs.

So, in terms of nature and nurture, it seems that an individual is capable of being two things at once, for we are in Our Creator’s image after all – we as individuals are both here and not here, our worldliness is a vehicle for our soul.

We are souls journeying through this Earth as part of God’s conceptual process in Himself.

As the Buddhists say:
‘I am spirit dwelling in the temporary vehicle of my body to obtain experience, expression and development’.
