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.
Life is turning …. Or as Rumi said, Life is returning.
“Gurdjieff once said: “A man should be able to turn round in himself.” Now this means that he is stuck to nothing in himself. When we identify we stick to things and so cannot get free and cannot turn round.” ~ Maurice Nicoll
To get the whole UK brexited, first there was a need to get a sufficient mass of people brentranced with the implanted idea.
This is not solely about Britain leaving the EU, it’s about billionaires intimidating political leaders, it’s about damaged people trying to overcompensate for low self-esteem by hoarding money and lying to get power, it’s about occult rites at the highest levels whether Nancy Reagan consulting astrologers to try to protect her husband, or deeper darker rites that are the bread and butter of global celebrity conspiracy theorists.
Lowering of consciousness by induction of trance is the work of how very small numbers of people control very large numbers of people.
Fear can freeze individuals into a trance like state, a petrification. Organised violence is about how to train soldiers with just enough physical antidote to this ultimate trance induction, war, to grant victory to those puppeteer cash holders who make a political and financial profit eventually whether Mankind is hypnotised into the slaughter of the destruction of nations or the laughter of the creation of nations.
Criminals use violence to establish turfs and to carry on their law-breaking. The police have an almost impossible job of refereeing cultures if government policy becomes rudderless, for the police stand in the middle, arbiters between the leaders and the led.
It’s time to change the story of Mankind’s inhumanity to Man.
It’s time for people to snap out of their trance, to see more clearly the journey from Mankind to Humankind without the pirates entrancing the world to their infamous tunes.
Actors train to be able to pick up a rôle, learn a part with the words and the actions given to them, to rehearse and then to perform, by others.
In recordings and in live theatrical performances audiences engage with productions of “art” that depict both factual and fictional situations plus also mixtures of fact and fiction under artistic licence within the law.
In the process of acting, the consciences of particular performers are protected for them by the disciplines that they acquire within their training. So they can portray many difficult situations as “acts”, that if they were real would possibly destroy them…..
Indeed, many actors play out the lives of other people from their actual lives, lives so dangerous and destructive that a story is told for all the reasons that any story is ever told.
Actors and audiences alike are protected from significant damage psychologically within the admission of and into an illusion, that all parties implicitly sign up to, even though actors and audiences alike are often changed forever within the theatrical creativity that is being given and received.
Politics is not the same as theatrical entertainment. The protections explicitly learned by actors and implicitly accepted by audiences are not given to politicians and their electorates.
Electorates expect their leaders to tell them the truth, to be real, not to be acting as if they were real.
What is the thing that is protected within the process of engagement by actors and their audiences but not within politicians and their electorates?
That thing is conscience.
Conscience is acquired along with executive function as a developmental process in children. These two phenomena are intrinsic to the deepening of consciousness and to the individualising of people into their becoming ever more Human in their personal lifelong journey, a journey shared with others.
From Shakespeare onwards, as fiction reflects political factions, then the public consumer adopts certain positions vis-à-vis how truthful powerful people actually are, but still it can be argued that at least in the young in any generation, there is a burning yearning for leaders with very low levels of guile in their actions of public service.
A lot of words then to state the obvious, actors act, leaders lead. One has an indirect drive, one a direct drive, where that driver is conscience.
A psychopath has no connection to a conscience as an analytic descriptor of brief behaviour.
DICTION in the above schematic is paramount to CONSCIENCE. It is a place where the invisible and visible meet, where the ascending and descending meet in transcending. It is a place of energy meeting words.
Actors can healthily addict themselves to a rôle, turn on will-power which is what it is to be able to addict oneself and more important, turn off will-power when the performance is finished.
What then goes wrong with political leaders?
The answer is in the flow chart as addiction and contradiction interface.
When actors are rehearsing a part, they practice fluidly across the dynamics of contradiction as any problems are solved within a production of will that has already been completed by the writer. So the energy of creativity from the invisible to the visible lends itself protectively during the rehearsal process with much less chance of fundamental creative collapse at the systemic addiction point because the words are a given.
Collapse can take place within the individual Diction pathways of actors as their dictionary of expertise is checked, energised and enlarged, but this is technique danger as against the pressure of trying to be unique.
To be seen spontaneously by an audience in an actuallyunique mission is the Holy Grail of leaders’ performances, whereas audiences respond more to a rehearsed factuallyunique performance from actors.
The adulteration of the above paragraph is the cause of the dissonance that is the inner hurricane raging through the inner landscapes of Mankind.
Politicians in the world today increasingly can’t function and their facts are so broken even amongst themselves, as to be incommunicable to any audience anywhere. Politicians have tried over decades to be more like actors than leaders, but without even the most basic debating skills necessary for any actual debate to take place, that’s even if the debating chambers were not already terminally disconnected by the bribery of the corporate or criminal lobby promise procurement process.
Political debate, like the inner debate of personal problem solving, crucially requires the full connection of malediction to benediction as shown in the above diagram.
When the dots are taken out of the Yin-Yang, then where that aberration is disturbingly and systemically imposed, eventually creativity dies closely followed by life-forms.
In a person it is resentment that removes the inner dots from the inner Yin-Yang which then produces such levels of inner animosity that the misunderstood word addiction collapses behaviour to the point of death.
Because politicians are not good actors with that profession’s learned protection for conscience, politicians get whipped against personal conscience as if that process is without consequence or that somehow the Party will absolve them.
Politicians, their corporate or organised worker funders, their organised religious backers, their ideological academics, all have made so many accommodations to conscience over decades and even centuries, accommodations to The Human Being One, that systemically the Yin-Yang dots are virtually destroyed everywhere.
The electorate as an audience start when young knowing, or thinking that they know that theaters and cinemas are fictional, but that Parliament is factual.
They know that their favourite actors play so called good and bad characters in different performances in ways that don’t collapse the overall entertainment and/or learning function which is built into the receiving of the professional rôle playing in an overall theatrical process. In other words there is a cognitive sonance in the experience, it makes a connected sense to an inner dictionary.
When leaders and politicians break their words over and over again, either because their strategies are impossible to realise in practice, or when leaders and politicians deliberately spin words to the point of meaninglessness first in their own inner dictionaries, then in the collective systemic dictionaries, ultimately in the national Constitutional dictionary, then their words of attempted leadership are unrecognisable to audiences, just so much partisan jargon to a point where many people’s ability to differentiate illusion and reality starts to break down into cognitive dissonance.
Britain now leads the world in promulgated cognitive dissonance, an industry that’s been filled with spin-doctors and propaganda for the past thirty years since the advertising agency Satchi & Satchi took over Thatcher’s UK messages to the public, an industry that went into overdrive with Blair to finally crash and burn in Brexit.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. (John 1:1)
The problems facing leaders, facing collapsing systems, facing collapsing people, are global. These problems are indicative of a breakdown of words. This breakdown is a spiritual illness, though the symptoms are physical and mental, this dissonance is an illness that only has a catalytic like global spiritual remedy.
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.
Oh to be a modern man No rites of passage
Trashed religious package
Caught between news of marauders
Brutal abusers and Benny Hill musers
All tarred with the same brush
The seduction dance frozen
G-spots, wi-fi hot spots
Loose Women programmes
Fifty Shades logjams
Performed and written by feminine forces
Poor men …
Like animals or birds
Forced to dance, lock horns,
Preen their feathers
Not a word or thought out of place, Until she instigates Her policy of no regret
Just don’t dare to refuse her
Don’t then say no …
For it’s the woman scorned
That makes Hell’s fury seem nought
It’s Salome that had The Baptist’s head bought
It’s Delilah had Samson’s power clipped
It’s the other man’s wife
Clawed Joseph’s back
Then blamed him …
So …. The Human, being me,
Meets The Human, being you, In the dying art of animal husbandry.
”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 ….
Hell is separation
Paradise is connection
From and to
Connection to other separated people
Connection to One Source
This writing is in Paradise
Unfailingly transmitting Peace
As proof, for Hell demands proof.
Hell seems to surround Paradise
As surely as planets surround the Sun.
Yet, surrounds are never separated
Physical surrounds are connected
Physical separation from God is impossible.
The Hell therefore is metaphysical
Entirely Mankind’s lot.
Animal, vegetable and mineral
Are in One material connection,
Don’t believe me
Ask a quantum physicist.
I’m a metaphysicist
I’ve known Hell, I’m in Paradise.
Like the Sun that your planettes
I’m not the Sun,
I am of the Sun.
I am simply of a certain disposition,
A diction resolution,
A bridge, over troubled water.
“This message of gaining release from outer systems of thought and opinion is simple and it works without directly confronting the legitimate outer governing forces in any way – just leave them be – look to your own change individually and then let Faith bring you together in groups as your personal interest and volition deem necessary, joyous and practical to share your social requirements and spiritual experience – to share and to grow.”
When I wrote this in 1997, shortly after August 31st which is the date that Princess Diana died, I had a sense of the connectivity that the Internet promised.
Any physical action is grist to the mill of the physical governments. Any physical war, or mass rally that is the necessary preempt to warfare, is acceptable to the warmongers. Divide and rule thrives on the mass manipulations that are so easy to inflict upon the raw energy of mass physical dissent.
So, the mass rally in silence, that spontaneously occurred after Princess Diana was killed in a car crash, is the possibility of a new mass statement if there is to be a physical message to rulers.
What the Internet offers is the possibility of a metaphysical cohesion that can be a catalyst to changes that are sought physically.
The pen is mightier than the sword.
Whilst we have the Internet that is so vital to the movement of money, commerce and political powers, we have the ability to insulate ourselves from the physical terminal of powers and activate an insulated metaphysical terminal of power within ourselves and each other.
What is more powerful than a mass movement is the individual connection to Light that a spiritual practice establishes.
The invisible force managing The Earth has more power than the visible forces of physical government. Even Donald J. Trump admitted on his recent mass meeting campaign trail that he was a “germophobe”. This shows his unwitting awareness of the reality of life on Earth and his fear of things he can’t see or control.
Governments through the ages are frightened of only one war. Governments are frightened by the invisible threat, which is why they both try to read the intention of other powers as well as try to influence invisibly through espionage and subversion the intentions of others.
Governments are clumsy machines and no matter how “sharp” individual people might hold themselves to be, governments are blunt instruments of power. History is a testament to the hacking of the fabric of life that the feckless knives of political powers have inflicted upon the their subjects.
This era change that is so powerfully landing with us all physically is being driven by the metaphysical, as always.
So, whatever your definition of metaphysical may presently be, this is the definition to work upon to gain more resolution as to the real picture, the bigger picture of the swirling events that appear before our physical senses.
One of the practical benefits of the elementary and preparatory methodology of the 12 Steps is that there is a building of an inner space craft within which any meditation practice can strengthen once Step 11 is in place.
Nobody would embark upon a journey into outer space without a craft, similarly an inner space journey is made more easily within a vehicle, within a learned craft.
The 12 Step Programme as presented here is akin to an inner laundry, a preparation of a place within which prayer andmeditation can commence.
This was the aim of many exoteric teachings, to build such an inner mandala, an hermetic vehicle that could be navigated to a deeper esoteric experience, built and made safe with the Seals of Sainthood and Prophecy.
A practical process of inner space exploration, journeys made from, by, to, in and through a Creator, personal experiences without sully of intermediary sources, that can however be shared only in order to help others with their own preparation and practice.
It seems that the exoteric traditions can degenerate and get stuck, they “throw away the keys of knowledge” as The Christ Jesus said to the High Priests.
