Light Upon Light

The middle way is the place of the “Quantum Mind”

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.

There will be more posts here shortly.

Message reissued

All the links on the tweet below work and the article in the UK Guardian from two years ago opens in the Facebook link.

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.

When Society Becomes an Addict
The Addictive System will lead to total destruction
The Addictive System is morally and spiritually bankrupt
We live in a world that is literally turned upside down by moral deterioration
The Addictive System is wrong about the human condition
Psychotherapy makes yet another mistake by treating disorders in isolation, out of the context of the Addictive System
Everything we know about human development has been taught by Addictive System teachers in Addictive System schools from a perspective of “reality” that is not real

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!!

Then read this blog post for a perspective

Healing for broken and empty words ….

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.

Pharma karma

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.

In the beginning was the Word, the Word was with God, the Word was God – opening of St John’s gospel.

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.

Landing Pad

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.)

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.

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.

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.

UK Democracy rises from the dead.

The election of Jeremy Corbyn revivifies the Democratic process. If people want democracy, an adversarial system, then this is what is now restored. Margaret Thatcher corrected Union excesses, Tony Blair failed to correct Margaret Thatcher’s excesses. Thus the system broke and turned from policy differences into personal differences. The system sickened away from adversarial health into an accusatory pandemic of broken diction.
This pandemic trickled down into the electorate, sticking whole swathes of people into inappropriate problem solving pathways, past paradigms that no longer work. Alcohol misuse and food addictions that have fuelled the secondary diabetes component of the National sickness that itself threatens to bankrupt the NHS. Then there is the financial crash that is a direct result of the failure of the big four global Auditors to do their job which has further polluted the political process creating a perfect storm of Executive failure to see what is actually happening to the fabric of civilisation.
There is no quick fix to the sickness at the core of our culture. At least the Democratic Pendulum has been released today and the Groundhog Day of the last few years brought into focus.
As that film shows, only ❤ Love restarts the clock of our possible cultural survival.
