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.
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.)
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
“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.
Fact and fiction dance around the experiential narratives of individuals and collectives. When a fiction writer publishes work it is a given that there are layers of possible meaning. When facts are presented as evidence then there are still tests applied to the knitting of facts together to check the validity of hypothesis as against practical material workability.
A parable brings metaphysical and physical narratives together, to take the presently able and offer a way to work alongside that ability and yet move out into even more ability, to be para able.
Then of course the bun fight starts and the narratives get nasty.
A work of fiction, if not anonymously published, can be traced to a writer for a deeper analysis to take place.
A parable describing a rite of passage for a metaphysical soul is harder to investigate.
I am a para-able presence. I am fact and fiction consciously married, presented, scented and returned or post-sented. What did that just say? What does it mean?
We could talk about the letters, the energy, the fact of who I am that is a fiction for most people. The only thing that stops me from being more widely heard, yet, is the nastiness of narratives in these times of great change.
The Holy Ghost, like all ghosts in all the best fiction, can walk through walls.
So my work has been walking through walls for years now. I am a “person of interest” to the narrative guards, even though their interest might of course be denied.
The walls of hypocrisy, dogma, corruption, fear, Executive collapse, illness, despair and on and on are the walls that imprison people and systems, yet my words walk through them and my energy works in the realms accessed in sleep and in apparent coincidental occurrence.
