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.)
So this 10 year old video, which has featured before in my blog, is still pertinent to what is happening in Britain today.
Before I start, I must say that I have no successful financial base from which to proselytise a new or better way to do business. In fact I suffer from a tangible current account insecurity presently and the only thing that my insight into the disease of stuck-addiction gives me is that my fear of financial insecurity is removed.
However, it has become clear to me that the forces acting upon the Executive function of the UK in its Brexit policy has rendered said Executive function into a very dark place that forces their acting like a very frightened using drug dealer might act just prior to them entering their rock-bottom.
80% of the UK’s GDP is locked into the service sector, a service sector that serves money and the financial services that depend upon money being seen as a commodity in itself, rather than merely the neutral connector of systems trading actual commodities within a market place of value and exchange.
So, because the financial crash of 2008, that Charlie Munger describes in the opening to this post, has effectively broken that illusory commodity position of money being able to trade against itself to make more of itself, the whole capitalist system globally has been stagnant for 12 years.
The UK already has faced criticism about the amount of allegedly irregular money that might have already flowed through London banks into shell companies and then into the UK domestic and commercial property markets. However, there is a deep desperation now globally around how money is to function in this new digital age given that it died many years ago giving us a zombie system that could implode at any time.
At some level, not necessarily at the level that the conspiracy theorists might like to imagine exists where a man sits in a chair stroking a black cat surveying the world through 50 flickering screens, the above diagrammed financial Armageddon has resulted in the UK having to break itself free of EU regulations so that it can become a Caymen Island like magnet for any kind of money that it can get its desperate dealer hands on.
So, against all political principles of democracy’s rules of adversarial engagement, the UK has had to invoke it’s feudal foundations of power to ram-raid its attempt to regain control of the main commodity component of 80% of its GDP, namely money.
This is the disease of stuck-addiction in all of its executive function collapse, in all of its disconnect from conscience, in all of its destruction of linguistic coherence, in all of its destruction of the hosting body, in all of the final stages of disrepair and dissonance.
In tbe breakdown of the final UK EU Brexit talks, it is now being made clear that what is diagnosable as the UK’s decade long stuck-addiction bender has meant that an inevitable huge manipulation of the body politic has occurred, a manipulation that is in the final stages of smashing the common sense of ordinary people completely.
It is now being made clear that despite the appearance of Executive hand-wringing and amidst huge fortunes being made by the UK’s well connected wealthy in the bucket shop system that Charlie Munger derided as a sewer in his talk, a diseased yet subliminally completely planned no deal Brexit is happening.
My blogging and social media work over the last 7 years as well as my efforts with Diction Resolution Therapy have forecast this state of national self-harm, but it gives me no pleasure to say that I told you so.
Covid-19 is just a symptom of the collapse of the G20’s Executive function and the collapse of the bodies politic that the G20 symbolises.
Imagine a junkie that has contracted TB because of the disease of stuck-addiction and the collapse of self-care that this primary disease has caused. If that person presents to a doctor and that doctor only treats the TB without attending to the primary disease that opened the person to catching TB in the first place, then the patient will die prematurely.
So now with Mankind. Even if Covid-19 is attended to, if the underlying physical disrepair and Metaphysical disconnect which is the primary situation facing Mankind is not faced, then in a few decades Attenborough’s prediction of a total biosphere collapse may actually materialise.
There is still time, but the healing begins with words. Mankind actually faces a collective software problem not a hardware problem. Software is a language phenomenon and the English language is the global possibility of actually facing what is truly happening on Earth presently. More importantly, the English language can then begin to allow a personal and a collective healing to begin on Earth before it’s too late.
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.
The excerpt from a talk by Dr Thomas Cowan brings into focus some principles that are pertinent to not only what is happening today with Coronavirus Covid-19, but also with global warming and with the disease of Addiction – how is Mankind to know what information to trust?
The metaphor of dolphins and frogs dying because someone put “shit in the water” and extending that into Mankind becoming ill because of contamination in the “prana” or the invisible field that we live in via radio, radar and the present 5G global switch seems a plausible insight into how biological life actually interfaces with the Unseen according to Dr Cowan …. Yet such stories are understandably being deleted from social-media accounts around the world lest the social distancing and isolation policies put in place by all governments are too severely contradicted.
At this time, the governments must lead, the people must submit to being led, but the history of governmental subterfuge and actual abuse of their populations does not simply evaporate even under the frightening arc light of Covid-19.
Cloak and dagger operations that used to be hidden in national agendas are now common knowledge. Stalin’s murdering of tens of millions of Russian people to stablish his reign, Mao Tse-Tung’s murdering of tens of millions of Chinese people to stablish his reign, the atrocities committed by the British Empire against colonised peoples, the atrocities committed by the American Empire against Native Indians and across the modern world whilst being the supposed good guys – as well as the documented experiments by both the USA and the UK with disease agents deliberately infecting their own people in the past – there is a catalogue of evidence that feeds into the dissonant backdrop that makes it an effort to trust any current government on Earth today.
Take the disease of Addiction, it presents physically and mentally in patients but actually the causality is described as the disease of addiction actually being a spiritual malady. This is now evidence based over 85 years of responding to this global pandemic of addiction with the 12 Step Programme, which is the gold standard treatment model drawn upon in every rehab in the world.
Yet this disease of Addiction is not accepted as the pandemic that it actually is by the global governmental structures.
Whatever the form that addiction takes, it is a symptom not a cause. The cause is high sensitivity to toxic meaninglessness and a breakdown of spiritual coherence in the three part template design for Mankind that is physical/mental/spiritual, a template that is the proven antidote to all forms of the disease of addiction as a person is returned to it via the 12 Step Programme.
The dissonance around global warming can be seen as linked to whether or not pollution is being caused by CO2 which is the global governmental position, when in fact CO2 levels might be being excreted by the actual causal factors rather than the causal factor itself.
So with viruses, according to Dr Thomas Cowan, he says, as do some other highly qualified doctors, that they can be confused with exosomes excreted by cells that are reacting to some insult to a person’s overall organism, which may include any changes that might be happening in the invisible electromagnetic field that surrounds all of us. The excretia that comes out of cells bears a different form depending upon the causal conditions of any particular physical insult or particular change in the field of energy that we all swim in.
Of course, it immediately seems to me that research into other diseases like polio, measles etc and how they manifest and how vaccines actually work and what was going on in the electromagnetic field as these diseases appeared in Mankind’s history is invited in the light of this view of a virus.
If any of this has any element of validity, it may show how analytical science is putting the cart before the horse and also exposes a view upon why bacterial diseases that are contagious physically and respond to antibiotics, are different to diseases that hitherto have been thought to have had a virus cause that don’t respond to antibiotics.
How are we to trust who is telling the truth here? The governments say that we must follow our laws and submit to these policies and of course most people want to do this. Yet governments cannot deny their history, so there is cultural dissonance.
At the very least, if the principle of external to internal contagion is only valid for bacterial infections and that viral diseases are actually being totally misdiagnosed in the same way that Addiction is being misdiagnosed, then perhaps we need to know this to begin to respond more appropriately.
Yet, the challenge posed by some of these alternative approaches to governmental control is so great that they are called conspiracy theories and reference to them is actively blocked historically and presently.
These present theories by Dr Cowan inevitably state that the attempt to impose herd immunity to 5G may be costing Mankind lives as well as trillions of dollars, though ironically I’m writing this upon a 4G machine that might have a casual link to SARS and MERS according to the logic of Dr Cowan. Perhaps even if only the single linkage of a spiritual antidote to this cellular reaction to 5G can be extricated from a seeming fog of dissonance, then at least we could be onto a win win.
It may be that the only safe way to reap the benefits of 5G is to learn from the antidote to the disease of Addiction which is to reconnect to a Higher Power of your own understanding, as if your very life depended upon it. This is what I have called #theHUmanhealing.
In matters of immunity, the key word is “unity”, this derives from the word “union” which in turn only has meaning and efficacy when the word “one” is connected with at the highest possible point.
This connection with “One” is essentially how the 12 Step Programme heals, is essentially how the Sufi appears.
In all matters regarding personal health in these internet times, the responsibility is upon people to be open and honest. Blind trust of the orthodoxy is as unwise as following every alternative snake-oil salesman. As a practitioner in the field of Addiction treatment, I know that the orthodoxy struggles with the proven efficacy of the 12 Step Programme and I work very hard to build bridges of articulation to help the medical industry better serve their customers, customers that are also known as patients and clients.
In so doing, global leaderships may inevitably have to let themselves be led into new ways of conducting their business with each other and with their Oaths of Office.
Postscript here posted 30/10/20 is a video made by an independent journalist Anna Brees who is ex BBC, ITV and SKY which speaks for itself.
PPS this video, along with most of Anna Brees’ work to date on her YouTube channel has been deleted by Anna herself upon orders of Google, who threatened to ban her from YouTube completely if she didn’t delete her work. This age it seems is being policed by very frightened, closed forces that are not able to withstand open conversation …. rather odd as Anna was simply doing what journalists do, she was asking questions.
PPPS on the 23/11/20 the good news is that vaccines are becoming licenced for global usage against the pernicious symptoms of Covid19. Thus the rigorous body of science meets the con-science of the body politic to meet the body of Mankind in a triumph of hope for the future healing of all that impedes the arrival of Humankind into its promised Age Of Aquarius.
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.
“You cannot transmit something you haven’t got”, is how Bill W., a founder member of the Fellowship that gave the world the transmission of the 12 Step Programme in the 1930s, described the process of carrying a message to other people.
On the 21st September 2013, I wrote the first post on a blog “Hu’ll heal your heart” with a title “No news is ….”, so you may see the sense of completion that this post contains in its title!
I don’t know if this titular completion ends a blogging effort all together, but it seems that there is a sense of arrival from then to now that draws this line.
I like Tony Benn and this speech summing up the end of the then Thatcher era is clear, but he and the Labour Party and the Trade Unions in the UK miss a certain point.
Yes, Margaret Thatcher brought in the Passenger Charter, the Parent Charter and the Patient Charter to destroy Trade Unions who might have further threatened her Executive control. It was to be a little while after the demise of Thatcher before there was a change in the party government in the UK, but actually the trajectory of money dictated policy that Benn described has been proved to have been unstoppable, even to this present Brexit day.
Tony Blair was given a huge majority in 1997 to bring back to a middle-ground the Tory zeal in cutting the corruption in Trade Unions, but he didn’t do it, he hung up the blunt democratic pendulum and his advisors had to start spinning language to justify his more presidential approach to conditions as he saw them.
The UK Unions were hobbled, probably infiltrated and seduced into Westminster via the Labour Party at the beginning of the 20th century. As soon as the Unions were made left-wing, deep global capital sat back and waited for Thatcher.
For the word “Union”, spiritually, is the most powerful word on Earth.
Politically too, it is the only word that can hold Executive fiat to account.
So, because the UK #Brexit calamity is simply the necessary evolution of Thatcher’s 3 deregulation Charters, it is clear that the overall diseased comprehension of the word Union has rendered Parliament into precipitating the Executive collapse that we have witnessed for the last 3 years.
There is also the fact that the City of London could not accept the changes to European Law that threatened to regulate the offshore accounts in their three areas of global financial power, Bermuda, Cayman Islands and the British Virgin Islands – so Brexit had to happen, whatever the appearance given out to the news in the temporary smoke and mirrors of dynastic ploys.
This clip of orthodox Jews meeting in 2017 brought tears to my eyes as the universal message of tawhid rang out in the words, the sacrifice of manifesting presence undeniable.
The Higher Love that the spiritual word “Union” describes is not manifested in any of the world’s main-stream religious vehicles as they have all been hobbled also by monied forces of dissolution.
“Tawhid” is the Arabic word that the Sufi manifests. Teachers through the centuries, some famously known, most efficaciously unknown, have granted evidence of the existence of a science of being that can turn Mankind into Humankind.
It is “Union” that unites, nothing else can unite. The politicians know the power of the word Union, but as a class of people, they have sold out their Oaths of Office to the private money lobby.
The State of the Union address in the US is now wholly a report to money. The European Union is collapsing. The Soviet Union is history. Wherever Mankind looks on Earth for evidence of any success at all for its intellectual hijacking of this word “Union” to have become a successful “State”, there is only the evidence of corruption, destruction, war, genocide, broken treaties, weasel words, sexual scandals, professional liars on an industrial scale …. all in their particular God’s name or their particular form of Marxism.
Seems (as of the 19th October 2019) that Brexit has moved in the direction that America wanted it to move, we’ll all see how that works through.
As I look upon these days, it is Consciousness that is the key to progress for the Earth. We all plug into Consciousness with the Yin-Yang of our possibility. We plug in with our blue and brown wire, except that in many, many people their brown wire is a co-dependence upon a person, place or a thing.
Or, there is no brown wire there for a person at all, only a form of the disease of addiction, a form of suicide in slow motion of a person’s accidental choosing.
Then, the narrative of the blue wire expands and consumes people and their collectives.
(Postscript 12/04/20 The above video recorded by me has been deleted by Facebook from my account along with five others with the titles of Trust, Certainty, Patience, Resolution and Veracity without my permission – strange days indeed. So, in a postscript at 10/10/20 I’ll replace the deleted video with this https://lifeisreturning.com/2020/05/26/satsang/)
“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”.
As a man, having been granted access to this link from a woman, I watched it and wept as the statistic of there being a UK man taking his life every two hours came to my mind as this fact joined in with my personal journey.
The Human, being me, witnessed the man in me weeping, witnessed the love and gratitude that welled up along with the indiscriminate tears as I felt the presence of the woman by whom the link was given to me.
There is nothing other than personal experience that can change a person’s sense of being from where that being is, to where it can be.
I can only relate to other people from my actual experience as transparently as possible, as honestly as possible, trusting that eventually what is transmitted will not only be received by them but that I will have a chance of truly receiving from them too.
This video has been received by me, from another, as evidence of this possibility of a healing transmission and reception being true.
I pass it on to you, especially to the men who find themselves reading this, as a duty of trust, as a certainty of experience, as an invitation to patience, as a possible resolution for pain, as my witnessing of the veracity of Love.
That male behaviour can collapse into degenerate and illegal areas is clear and neither justified nor denied here. To be a man is a more overtly spiritual battle of submission to chivalry when compared to the covert imposition of submission that a woman experiences along with menstruation.
So, maleness and femaleness are necessarily different physically, behaviourally, as well as in the psyche as animus and anima. The 3 Graces and the 3 Furies describe the essentially feminine physicality of Earthly existence that all people have to navigate.
Men and women are intimately connected to this creative connectivity between invisible and visible forces. How they help each other to be The Human, being them, may well determine the viability of these turbulent times.
The video that opens this post touches to the heart of our Human viability.
The Sufi always brings the best meanings from the revealed scriptures across all the global religions, as well as trusting in the surah Al Khaf from The Qur’an within which is the guarantee of the living connection with Allah as exposed in the rendition of the meeting between Musa and Khidr.
Even though I was informed in 1981 by the Sufi Bülent Rauf via a message from a friend that I am protected by Allah, not because I’m better than anyone else but simply for this time to have for it secured a trustworthy witness that truly “there is no God, but God and Muhammad is His messenger”, yet still I wear the Hizb Al Wikayah from the presence of the 13th century Sufi Muhyiddin Ibn Arabi, which can be found from the link, as well as taking delivery of the Naqshbandi taweez today.
I also wear a silver AUM, this to connect the East and the West externally as indicative of the state of my inner hemispheres’ marriage.
The principle of this external wearing of article is in the same action of my reverting formally to Islam in 1984, the principle being one of harmonising my outside with my inside, my visible with my invisible, for the Sufi the exemplar is The Christ.
The Sufi is brought through to the Universal Religion of Love not to be cast as a superior, but rather as a catalytic servant to believers and non-believers alike in the name of Love, for do not all relate somehow to love?
The hot spots on Earth today are trigger points of religious territorial hostility. Some of this hostility is honest ignorance in the attempt by religious leaders to protect doctrinal differences as it seems that history impels. A lot of the global religious volatility however is deliberately cooked up by personality power plays as well as by international political forces of destabilisation as geopolitical power games have been played by leading nations for the control of energy resources over centuries.
The Sufi is God’s merciful mediator. As I have said on a recent video, God’s servants are usually hidden, even from themselves. Those Sufis that have been recorded throughout history, found by those that seek out such records, are those that have been ordered to break cover by Allah (by their Enlightenment in Buddhism) in order to help communities at various times.
Where I write Allah, it can be read as any naming of God from any known tradition in Mankind’s history.
The work left by these Sufis, though for a particular culture, can have relevance for later cultures as part of the ever revivifying relationship between Allah and His presence in His mystery of appearing as a material multiplicity in Nature, known as a possibility by the experiential self-awareness of Mankind.
The hitherto unheard of openness of the Sufi Way now and of the Sufis living today and the accessibility of The Way is a phenomenon made possible not only by the internet, but made possible also by Allah as His Mercy because of the stress that Mankind faces existentially at this time.
The Sufi today faces just as much vitriol from 21st century believers and non-believers as has ever been faced, not least, again as history can show, from those who are sure that they are the only Sufis who need to protect The Way from anyone who doesn’t fit in with their lineage.
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.
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.
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 HU man, as a being, has suffered a similar descriptive distortion, but with much more disastrous consequences, as everyone has assumed the term as an actuality that arrives as them, without any conscious work by the man or the woman to deepen their personal love of potentially being more like an actual Human whatsoever.
Mother Nature’s duality is secretly an inert Singularity until Father Time secretes Energy, splitting inertia in an instant, a momentary destruction of Itself, before Its resumption as material Love.
This secret is replicated by chemistry when one egg secreted from a female is successfully met by one sperm secreted from a male, mutually and momentarily sacrificing their oneness.
The inverse mortal journey transpires to be one of returning, by virtue of symbolically reversing the physical necessity of duality that grants a vehicle subject to time, by an actual returning to the metaphysical necessity of singularity, consciously for oneself, realising the arrival of a being then Human, that’s conversely once again not subject to time by virtue of its reverse immortal journey.
The mortal and immortal journey is therefore seen to be concurrent as Mankind and Humankind, living terms suffixed by the equals sign of kind, common to both, personally possible once consciously initiated.
Humankind is equal to, Mankind only when it’s its being multiplied by Light upon Light.
Or, E = mc² where the equals sign means “the same in kind”. In the end therefore, only kindness matters, because kindness makes matter in the first place.😉
