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.
The Latin words “inter” meaning “between” and “currere” meaning “run” blend together to give us the word “intercourse”.
The sexual hijacking of this word began in 1788 when the habits of Mary Queen of Scots were immortalised in a biography. Today, most people associate intercourse to mean sexual intercourse.
However the word intercourse is a vitally important word to help people in a recovery from the disease of stuck and broken addiction.
Because the whole of Mankind is now powerlessly broken apart indisputably in a way that hitherto has been “managed” by ridiculously small forces, there is a crack in the prison wall. There is a way to see the course of events more clearly, to see the overall picture with a clearer resolution, to inter-act then more bravely, more creatively.
These small numbers of people that have historically hidden their real powerlessness over actually being able to control the huge numbers of people that they have ruled over, except by scaring the people subjugated to them with the loss of physical liberty or with wars, torture and death, these small numbers of people are exposed currently to be both powerless and unable to manage their political constitutions effectively.
Intercourse involves a toing and froing, a certain wrestling within a container of mutual respect amongst participants or even inner thoughts, that have oppositional positions and/or identities. In Mankind’s physical sexual intercourse, love is the container par-excellence and legal consent is the final arbiter to the sanctity of the act of physical intercourse, without which there is ultimately only the calamitous descent into rape.
In Mankind’s social intercourses, both public and private, truly manners maketh Man, a way of guaranteeing that consent is implicit in the inevitable toing and froing that happens between people privately and publicly. When manners become ill, then this illness opens the way to the rapacious interactions that then erupt between people in their intimate relationships and between systems in their political and financial relationships.
When social and political intercourse turns rapacious, though it seems easier to deny and hide than its physical relation, it’s actual effect is massively more destructive.
I have worked with people to try to help them to heal themselves from the trauma arising from physical abuse. I have heard that the words screamed at them during the physical attack stayed with them in a far more destructive way long after their body’s bruises had faded.
So with the verbal engagements of the participants and recipients within social and political intercourses, these bodies of proposition, argument and potential resolution can only safely wrestle together where there is openness, respect, humour, a willingness to be altered by the appearance of the new birthing of ideas rather than the maniacal defence of old entrenched positions.
Where ill-will, lies, hidden agendas and fear abound, whether in private lives or in public and systemic lives, when love disappears and the bottom line deliberately destroys its own top line, then all hell eventually breaks loose.
Hell simply means separation. When the bottom line is severed from its own top line.
Spiritual intercourse is the ultimate toing and froing that a mere handful of Human beings have been evidenced as having remained on Earth to share their result of actually having achieved a successful consummation of that particular deific Union.
This being said, even though the possibility of the sanctity of spiritual intercourse is often denied by those insisting upon the supremacy of their particular academic definition of intercourse, the previous progeny of such a spiritual Union rule the actual eras of Mankind’s experience past and present.
So today, as ill-will abounds amongst the global political class, as collapse continues to reverberate across the global financial class, as disease threatens to collapse the academic class, the contraceptive blocks that reduce global political debate to so much entrenched partisan masturbation have to be removed.
However, even if the contraceptions are to be removed from Mankind’s social, financial and political intercourses, just how the new wedding of these arrangements are to turn out so that truly new conceptions can be born into existence from the these new conjoinings will be wholly in the hands and hearts of those leaders who can hear this Spiritual diagnosis of their present condition.
The invitation to this diagnosis is clear. If you are not clear, ask, for a definition of intercourse with all and any of the facts of life is not enough, contact has to happen!
Einstein is purported to have said,
“Everything should be as simple as it can be, but not simpler”. “If you can’t explain it to a six year old, you don’t understand it yourself”.
These two quotes attributed to Einstein if true, speak to the need perhaps, of practice to make difficult matters appear simple – then to practicing communication once having reached a certain level of actual experiential attainment, of being, in that which is to be communicated.
I can communicate simply now about consciousness, should I choose to answer anyone who might care to ask me a question, especially if the question were to be asked from the guileless place that a six year old can be found in 😉🕯️
Matthew 18:3 says
International Standard Version Then he said, “I tell all of you with certainty, unless you change and become like little children, you will never get into the kingdom from heaven.
The biblical reference points toward a change of heart, away from the contempt prior to investigation which is mentioned in the book Alcoholics Anonymous as the ultimate bar to progress.
Toward a change of heart where a creative imagination serves Consciousness in our consciences, when minds work to digest life experiences with the peristaltic necessity of joined opposites as depression and expansion are repaired then, without the need of antidepressants.
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.
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/)
Actors train to be able to pick up a rôle, learn a part with the words and the actions given to them, to rehearse and then to perform, by others.
In recordings and in live theatrical performances audiences engage with productions of “art” that depict both factual and fictional situations plus also mixtures of fact and fiction under artistic licence within the law.
In the process of acting, the consciences of particular performers are protected for them by the disciplines that they acquire within their training. So they can portray many difficult situations as “acts”, that if they were real would possibly destroy them…..
Indeed, many actors play out the lives of other people from their actual lives, lives so dangerous and destructive that a story is told for all the reasons that any story is ever told.
Actors and audiences alike are protected from significant damage psychologically within the admission of and into an illusion, that all parties implicitly sign up to, even though actors and audiences alike are often changed forever within the theatrical creativity that is being given and received.
Politics is not the same as theatrical entertainment. The protections explicitly learned by actors and implicitly accepted by audiences are not given to politicians and their electorates.
Electorates expect their leaders to tell them the truth, to be real, not to be acting as if they were real.
What is the thing that is protected within the process of engagement by actors and their audiences but not within politicians and their electorates?
That thing is conscience.
Conscience is acquired along with executive function as a developmental process in children. These two phenomena are intrinsic to the deepening of consciousness and to the individualising of people into their becoming ever more Human in their personal lifelong journey, a journey shared with others.
From Shakespeare onwards, as fiction reflects political factions, then the public consumer adopts certain positions vis-à-vis how truthful powerful people actually are, but still it can be argued that at least in the young in any generation, there is a burning yearning for leaders with very low levels of guile in their actions of public service.
A lot of words then to state the obvious, actors act, leaders lead. One has an indirect drive, one a direct drive, where that driver is conscience.
A psychopath has no connection to a conscience as an analytic descriptor of brief behaviour.
DICTION in the above schematic is paramount to CONSCIENCE. It is a place where the invisible and visible meet, where the ascending and descending meet in transcending. It is a place of energy meeting words.
Actors can healthily addict themselves to a rôle, turn on will-power which is what it is to be able to addict oneself and more important, turn off will-power when the performance is finished.
What then goes wrong with political leaders?
The answer is in the flow chart as addiction and contradiction interface.
When actors are rehearsing a part, they practice fluidly across the dynamics of contradiction as any problems are solved within a production of will that has already been completed by the writer. So the energy of creativity from the invisible to the visible lends itself protectively during the rehearsal process with much less chance of fundamental creative collapse at the systemic addiction point because the words are a given.
Collapse can take place within the individual Diction pathways of actors as their dictionary of expertise is checked, energised and enlarged, but this is technique danger as against the pressure of trying to be unique.
To be seen spontaneously by an audience in an actuallyunique mission is the Holy Grail of leaders’ performances, whereas audiences respond more to a rehearsed factuallyunique performance from actors.
The adulteration of the above paragraph is the cause of the dissonance that is the inner hurricane raging through the inner landscapes of Mankind.
Politicians in the world today increasingly can’t function and their facts are so broken even amongst themselves, as to be incommunicable to any audience anywhere. Politicians have tried over decades to be more like actors than leaders, but without even the most basic debating skills necessary for any actual debate to take place, that’s even if the debating chambers were not already terminally disconnected by the bribery of the corporate or criminal lobby promise procurement process.
Political debate, like the inner debate of personal problem solving, crucially requires the full connection of malediction to benediction as shown in the above diagram.
When the dots are taken out of the Yin-Yang, then where that aberration is disturbingly and systemically imposed, eventually creativity dies closely followed by life-forms.
In a person it is resentment that removes the inner dots from the inner Yin-Yang which then produces such levels of inner animosity that the misunderstood word addiction collapses behaviour to the point of death.
Because politicians are not good actors with that profession’s learned protection for conscience, politicians get whipped against personal conscience as if that process is without consequence or that somehow the Party will absolve them.
Politicians, their corporate or organised worker funders, their organised religious backers, their ideological academics, all have made so many accommodations to conscience over decades and even centuries, accommodations to The Human Being One, that systemically the Yin-Yang dots are virtually destroyed everywhere.
The electorate as an audience start when young knowing, or thinking that they know that theaters and cinemas are fictional, but that Parliament is factual.
They know that their favourite actors play so called good and bad characters in different performances in ways that don’t collapse the overall entertainment and/or learning function which is built into the receiving of the professional rôle playing in an overall theatrical process. In other words there is a cognitive sonance in the experience, it makes a connected sense to an inner dictionary.
When leaders and politicians break their words over and over again, either because their strategies are impossible to realise in practice, or when leaders and politicians deliberately spin words to the point of meaninglessness first in their own inner dictionaries, then in the collective systemic dictionaries, ultimately in the national Constitutional dictionary, then their words of attempted leadership are unrecognisable to audiences, just so much partisan jargon to a point where many people’s ability to differentiate illusion and reality starts to break down into cognitive dissonance.
Britain now leads the world in promulgated cognitive dissonance, an industry that’s been filled with spin-doctors and propaganda for the past thirty years since the advertising agency Satchi & Satchi took over Thatcher’s UK messages to the public, an industry that went into overdrive with Blair to finally crash and burn in Brexit.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (John 1:1)
The problems facing leaders, facing collapsing systems, facing collapsing people, are global. These problems are indicative of a breakdown of words. This breakdown is a spiritual illness, though the symptoms are physical and mental, this dissonance is an illness that only has a catalytic like global spiritual remedy.
The ruthless behaviours that manifest from the bottom-line fixation of a stuck-addict seem easier to see than the bottom-line fixated antics of say the biggest bank in the world RBS in 2008, than the antics of the directors and auditors of Carillion and InterServe or BHS and Debenhams here in the UK.
Equally the present exposure of illegal activities from within large pharmaceutical and addiction treatment conglomerates is as, if not more, fixated on the bottom-line of making money than is the bottom-line fixation of a drug addict to get their drugs.
So, how to give some information to begin to give some new food for thought for the leaders of finance in a collapsed monetary system.
First, when in a hole admit it and stop digging.
Second, see that this elevating of money to a primary position in the mass governance of people by very small numbers of leaders has happened over and over again in history and it has never ended well according to the scriptures of all of the world’s religions.
So, to look at my message of stuck-addiction collapsing global cultures, it’s now time to look into the ordering of the administration of the now globally cohering 12 Step Fellowships. How do millions of previously dying, diseased ego-maniacs manage the money needed to have ensured that their continued presence is now undeniably working across scores of 12 Step Fellowships in up to 190 countries?
Simply put, the Fellowships manifest with individuals who have a conscious contact with God, as they understand God, coming together in autonomous Groups that submit collectively to a Group Conscience that is an organ of organisational power from a Higher Power, from a top-line.
The bottom-line necessity of money is rigourously kept in place and connected to the top-line of the Group Conscience by the principle of a prudent reserve.
This principle of prudent reserve has protected the 12 Step Fellowships now for over eighty years. The Groups are self-supporting by their own contributions and any excess money is given swiftly to a central office.
This is to guard against the sickness of financial hoarding that is actually a symptom of the illness that is destroying our planet, not helpful to a sustainable Human propiety at all, despite the enticements of a published “Rich List”.
So, the creatives might have to work through this principle of prudent reserve into workable social policy with all of the urgency of people escaping from a collapsing, flaming building …. but it is a principle that has provenance.
The prudent reserve needed for a person in an occupation earning the wage say of a government’s Prime Minister, which is somewhere near 7x the wage of a low earner in the UK presently, well their prudent reserve might be 7x larger than the lowest earner once the size of that reserve had been established.
A start point might be approximately one year’s food and housing expenditure. Anything more than this might be seen as posing a spiritual threat rather than as a symbol of great success.
To start to live under spiritual principles rather than in physical hypocrisy will be a great shock for people, but the world is on fire, it’s time to decide.
As it says in the 12 Step Programme, Spiritual Principles are not theoretical, they now have to be lived.
This post is offered as a point to ponder. The Human, being a leader, meeting with The Human, being members of creative teams will be well able to create sustainable ways of harmoniously dwelling within recovered cities and cultures.
25 people on this planet Earth have as much material wealth as 3,500,000,000 people. Clearly the system is broken akin to the film Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs with nobody able to challenge the rogue money machines that do half of their work now with BOTS that are way away from any connection to democratic control.
This is the brinkmanship that the very ill hoarders of money are enmeshed within, as ever. They stare with their lobby driven puppet governments down the barrels of each other’s MAD weaponry and threaten each other with financial instruments of destruction, all with the insanity of their imagined apparent impunity from Spiritual consequences.
My message, as in Morris West’s The Clowns Of God, is the Dickensian story of A Christmas Carol being brought to life in real time within the backdrop of Attenborough’s message to the UN being actually true. The Scrooges had better wake up and rejoin Mankind while they still have time.
In the huge recovery industry that has been spawned by the arrival of the 12Step Programme in 1937, there has been an asset stripping “gold rush” as everyman and his dog stake out a claim to “mine” from the original deep seam of redemption that is still the singleness of purpose known as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA).
This cunning asset stripping and subsequent re-branding of what is a spiritual message, by an intellectual cleverness that can’t submit to any sense of God-consciousness, is only to be expected as it has been happening for thousands of years.
The Source of the message will of course protect the original transmission of the 12Step brand, just as the cohorted charitable and corporate derivative entities attempt to copyright their constructs and financial schemes.
Some of these global entities of supposed solution bearers to hard-pressed government departments around this addicted world are not even benign in their relationship with the source of their recovery industry, they are actively hostile toward the international 12Step Fellowships that have grown from the original Programme over the last eighty years.
How do I know this? Because I have talked with an employee of Indivior – a global addiction recovery player. (The Indivior link updated in April 2019 after the exposure of alleged malpractice) If you look at their opening page on their website, it seems that they are open to a collegiate approach within the global school of experience that has as its foundation the arrival of AA in 1935.
I spoke to a man recently at an Interfaith gathering who said that no-one could prove that God exists. I said that that was no longer strictly true. I said that since 1935 there had been and still are, many millions of people who can claim conscious contact with God as they understand God. They can claim conscious contact with a Higher Power that is loving and caring that has brought them back from a fate worse than death.
“What do you mean?”, says he.
“Members of the global 12Step Fellowships can all quote their Step11 which places them all in a God-consciousness of their own understanding,” says I.
“That’s not the same as what I was saying,” says he.
“It may not be what you wanted to hear,” says I, “but it is exactly answering of your previous generalisations about God that seemed to serve your atheism so neatly.”
However, eventually the conditions on the ground will be met with a message of sanity that is evidence based, irrefutable, compassionate, timely, tremendous and true.
Once the message is delivered, then the recipient has the responsibility of either action or continued inertia.
The 12Step Programme is the only living Spiritual programme left on the planet, the only connection with The Holy Spirit that is practical, predicable, provable and true, redeeming the lives of all people willing to change from within any religion, atheism, secularism, humanism, sect, creed or political party.
The 12Step Programme is unashamedly written in the language of the heart, a language that challenges the insanity of the language of the head, until the head submits.
The Singularity that the late Stephen Hawking wrote about in his cosmology that led onto looking at the boundaries of understanding for physics is a reflection of the Singularity that is the Source of the 12Step Programme and its metaphysics.
“Without help it is too much for us, but there is One who has all Power, that One is God, may you find Him now” (AA Book)
This single sentence is the nuclear core of the 12Steps. It is the same sentence spoken by every Prophet, Patriarch, Saint, Messenger and Mystic of the so-called West. It is the sentence that underpins the Eastern Hemisphere of Buddhist enlightenment as surely as a brain has two hemispheres.
It is the sentence of repetition found in the Surah Al Rahman in The Qur’an, “now which of the bounties of your Lord will you deny?”
The template of sanity for a Human being is this threefold, simple, evidence based structure, namely that a person appears as a physical, mental and spiritual being that has to be connected across its two inner interfaces of mental/physical and mental/spiritual if that person is to be described as in any way fully conscious.
God is consciousness.
Mankind arrives existentially inside consciousness, but unaware of this fact, therefore unconscious of the very forces that uphold an awareness of mortality. This is almost analogous to an imaginary conscious fish that is actually in water whilst denying that water exists.
A person who arrives at a conscious contact with this living Singularity arrives within a kindergarten of Human possibility from out of the conceptual rigour of their previous ignorance, however that conception might have appeared to have happened.
At this time, recovery from the many forms of the bellwether disease of Addiction is the paradoxical beachhead of sanity that has arrived at the junction of two eras, as the Age of Pisces gives way to the Age of Aquarius.
As at every previous time of momentous change known to Mankind, however the history of change might have been disrupted, Messengers from the Unseen decloak and engage in the almost impossible mission of trying to help the collective engage in work that is really only the province of the individual.
This time of momentous change is no different. The help is at hand. The challenge facing the helpers and those to be helped is the same, namely one of engagement.
”If dull people lose the idea of God nothing happens – not immediately at least. But socially the masses begin to breed mental epidemics, of which we have now a fair number.” C. G. Jung, Psychology & Religion (New Haven and London: Yale University Press, 1938) 105.
How can this be true then, this simple Jungian diagnostic that is now eighty years old? Surely, we still have, as a species, the idea of God in our cultures don’t we? There are still religions established, even at the core of national Constitutions as in Great Britain and Iran. Half of the world’s population can be counted as nominally rooted in the religions traced back to Abraham, whilst much of the other half are residing within the religious oceans of Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism and the con-science influencers of the likes of Confucius and Lao Tzu.
So, just what is going on now on this planet ruled by the hegemony of the US Empire within this religiously calibrated year that is “in the year of our Lord, 2018”?
It seems then, that in the same way that a vicar can need Alcoholics Anonymous despite being in the business of God propagation, in the same way that Iran welcomes in Narcotics Anonymous aware that orthodox Islam cannot recover massive numbers of muslim drug-addicts, in the same way that China is included in the AA global listings – so there is something amiss with the ideas about God and the practicalities of recovery, when those ideas about God break down and/or get lost.
The narratives of disconnect between the political and corporate leaders and the systemic bodies that they try to lead and the effect of that disconnect, comprise the bulk of what passes as the news broadcasts that blare relentlessly now 24/7 around the globe.
The old ideas of God are lost, broken and impractical. The brand leader Christianity is so far adrift from the Christ that they try to sell as to render the whole enterprise ethically bankrupt when looking at the global Christian Churches across all denominations and at their land holdings, bank holdings, abuse litigation processes and general hypocrisy.
The Islamic world is collapsing in on itself as powerful Islamic states prosecute war against weaker Islamic states at behest of a pluralist non Islamic Empire ruled by billionaires who worship only money as it mainlines their craving to wrestle power from anyone who seems to threaten their sworn allegiance to “God”!
Fanatics across this globalised cauldron of internetted connectivity, irrespective of which side of the law they find themselves, writhe and gouge within their bodies of influence against the predictable effects of a global elite and their Golden Calf Policy Initiatives.
The first step for the possible landing of a new era for the masses is for the leaders to understand that if they don’t wake up to what is really happening around them, then WWIII is inevitable.
The next step is for the global leaders to accept that their insanity is not confined to a projection of professional concern upon the present President of The Empire and whether he is insane or not – all Executive function, whether political or corporate, is to a greater or lesser extent dislocated from the task that it is struggling to achieve.
The insanity of doing the same thing expecting a different result refuses to see that the global monetary system has died.
Mankind has the intelligence, the courage and possibility of building a new way of interaction for itself and of becoming Humankind, but it needs the implementation of Spiritual Principles.
If there needs to be the physical appearance of one archetypal closer of this era as prophesied by Scriptures across all global cultures, then so be it – if only to prove once and for all that whilst the story is true, the moral of the story is more important to a recipient than any one character, no matter how sanctified that character is and has always been in the story, if there is to be seen that The Many have any practical connection whatsoever with The One.
Then all we need is the mad man of God prepared to stand up and say that he’s here …. hmmm ….
The machine hasn’t changed, only in name, the census journey that the Christ was born within is here today. At the first Christmas, the Essenes, Sadducees, Pharisees, Scribes and Zealots were each looking toward a Christ figure to fulfill their agenda, all were disappointed by the reality when it appeared within their midst. Still, the expectations of a physical figure to resolve metaphysical differences are all impossibly present on Earth in their modern factions and guises. Yet, the living essence of this story not only survives in prayer and paper, it loves, lives and breathes and has never ever been absent from the Earth.
This sentinel station of a Christ-like Magister holding the two worlds apart, the two waters apart, the two pillars apart is the stuff of myth and whisper in all cultures of Earth both open and hidden, past and present. Whether in all the religions of West and East, the Pied Piper story or the Alladin story that morphs into Harry Potter, the C.S. Lewis story of lion, witch and wardrobe or the Tolkien sagas of ring and redemption, the idea that there is magic and the supernatural hiding in plain sight, that can be accessed in times of great need, is ever it seems running through the life of Mankind and not just in the crafted fairy stories of our Disney retelling.
Is there an actual, living accessible reality to these stories, myths and aspirations today, now, in these crisis ridden times that are so similar to all the other crisis ridden times that have ever been recorded?
Why then doesn’t this embodiment make itself known?
Come on, you don’t really need to ask that question do you? Even for you, though it stretches your imagination somewhat, it is a question that is more to do with the film Elf, than it is a question that really needs wrestling with.
So, how are the tick boxes of tribalised religious authority to be satisfied by the invisible message taking form and manifesting again for them according to their scripts, prompts and stage directions?
How has it happened before? When Krishna appeared in The Bhagavad Gita, when Moses appeared in Egypt, when David met Goliath, when Samson brought down the Temple, when The Buddha met enlightenment, when Muhammad (pbuh) met Gabriel, when Christ got out of the cave, when Joseph got out of the well …. on and on, the word that connects the supernatural with the natural is unexpected.
The unexpected has a long lead-in, a preparation of a place of manifestation that becomes apparent after the apprehension of its unexpected appearance, but by then it becomes almost by definition, expected.
Help me, help me,
From the French verb
Now an international distress call
The recognisant and the ignorant
How can they be joined?
Energy is mass multiplied by

So Einstein said,
How can they be split apart?
Sorcery is not the same as
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,
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’.
