Riches and Power

The Qur'an XXXVIII 76 - 88

Qarun was doubtless,
Of the people of Moses; but
He acted insolently towards them:
Such were the treasures We
Had bestowed on him, that
Their very keys would
Have been a burden to
A body of strong men,
Behold, his people said to him:
"Exult not, for Allah loveth not
Those who exult (in riches).

" But seek with the (wealth)
Which Allah has bestowed on thee,
The Home of the Hereafter,
Nor forget thy portion in this
World: but do thou good,
As Allah has been good
To thee, and seek not
(Occasions for) mischief in the land:
For Allah loves not those
Who do mischief. "

He said:" This has been given
To me because of a certain
Knowledge which I have."
Did he not know that Allah
Had destroyed, before him,
(Whole) generations, - which were
Superior to him in strength
And greater in the amount
(Of riches) they had collected?
But the wicked are not
Called (immediately) to account
For their sins.

So he went forth among
His people in the (pride
Of his worldly) glitter.
Said those whose aim is
The Life of this World:
"Oh! that we had the like
Of what Qarun has got!
For he is truly a lord
Of mighty good fortune!"

But those who had been granted
(True) knowledge said: "Alas
For you! The reward of Allah
(In the Hereafter) is best
For those who believe
And work righteousness: but this
None shall attain, save those
Who steadfastly persevere (in good)."

Then We caused the earth
To swallow up him and
His house: and he had not
(The least little) party
To help him against Allah,
Nor could he defend himself.

And those who had envied
His position the day before
Began to say on the morrow:
"Ah! It is indeed Allah
Who enlarges the provision
Or restricts it, to any
Of His servants He pleases!
Had it not been that Allah
Was gracious to us, He
Could have caused the earth
To swallow us up! Ah!
Those who reject Allah
Will assuredly never prosper."

That Home of the Hereafter
We shall give to those
Who intend not high-handedness
Or mischief on earth:
And the end is (best)
For the righteous.

If any does good, the reward
To him is better than
His deed; but if any
Does evil, the doers of evil
Are only punished (to the extent)
Of their deeds.

Verily He Who ordained
The Qur-an for thee, will bring
Thee back to the Place
Of Return. Say: "My Lord
Knows best who it is
That brings true guidance,
And who is in manifest error."

And thou who hadst not expected
That the Book would be
Sent to thee except as
A mercy from thy Lord:
Therefore lend not thou support
In any way to those
Who reject (Allah's message).

And let nothing keep thee
Back from the signs of Allah
After they have been revealed
To thee: and invite (men)
To thy Lord, and be not
Of the company of those
Who join gods with Allah.

And call not, besides Allah,
On another god. There is
No god but He. Everything
(That exists) will perish
Except His own Face.
To Him belongs the Command,
And to Him will ye
(All) be brought back.

I have quoted the above at length because even though there are dangers in a kindergarten literalism which is so often the ground of fanaticism and impossible obsession and should therefore be eschewed at all costs, still there is enough of a timeless message that never goes away.

Consequences

Jeffrey Epstein was found dead in his prison cell today. The mega story surrounding his trial is full of group gossip, modern day Empire sensationalism full of celebrity association, unproven liaisons, allegations of immoral activity involving espionage, royalty, businessmen, computer programmers, religious and political tribalism, bankers and auditors with their smoke and mirrors and on, and on and on ad nauseam, except that it seems Mankind never gets sick of it.

More simply, a man has died, may God have Mercy upon his soul.

Materially, none of us are here to judge another person more than the law of the land is empowered so to do.

Spiritually, a person faces the consequences of their life according to all the religions known to Man.

If there is any lesson to be learned from the events surrounding the death of Jeffrey Epstein, then it is one of seeing one’s own behaviour with the same investigative rigour that one might be tempted to apply to Jeffrey Epstein’s demise.

“Let he who has no sin cast the first stone,” are the words of Christ that rush toward me whenever anyone else’s sexual behaviours are under scrutiny, legal or otherwise.

For me, this does not mean that anything goes, there is and must be the law of the land and in my experience of how a civilisation’s law comes into being then I trust the line from the 12 Step Programme which says that, “without help it is too much for us. But there is One with all Power. That One is God, may you find Him now.”

In the working of a 12 Step Programme, the principles of contrition, of facing the law, of facing up to sexualised behaviour that is selfish and self-seeking, of forming an ideal for future conduct and of making real amends for past behaviours that honour those hurt, these principles are clearly introduced as vitally important for a Human being’s health.

There can be a modern-day intellectual asset stripping of religious texts that can render all mention of Divine punishment as being in need of reform. New-age messages of meditation and of how to live in the present without being frightened of God or of the need to worry about the karmic judgement that the bardo experience delivers to the newly deceased, these new-age messages may need to be revised.

Jalalludin Rumi is often mentioned as a source of luvviduvvyness that takes his actual life and work well out of context. I offer the poem at the top of this blog-post as a balance toward how Rumi actually saw his life as it flowed between his birth and death.

He seems to be saying that a simple and expedient destruction of the foundations of the Ancient Way without even trying for a personal recourse to a deeper possible interpretation of said foundations whilst keeping them intact, is a lie.

All of my personal journey has had a basis of the need to atone for my ignorant mistakes, to face up to my past selfish and self-seeking behaviour, to ask for help to change from God as I understand God, to do this before I have to as we all have to, when we die.

Everywhere the systemic bodies are acting like junkies. Leaders of governments, religions, banks, utility companies, health services, large corporations globally, the news of their alleged and actual sexual and financial misconduct explodes into the 24/7 global media machine on an increasingly regular basis.

Self-styled mystics, messengers, holders of so-called secrets across global religious vehicles have been the founders of murderous sex-cults, manipulators of thrill seekers and of the damaged and vulnerable for age after age.

When the usual criminality of vice is exposed in its age-old setting it is upsetting enough for ordinary folk. When social and political leaders are exposed as having been stuck in corruption it is a great shock. When counterfeit spiritual leaders are shown to have been hiding in plain sight then it seems the final straw.

These are the days of huge macro change. Nothing new is being shown, it is however a matter of scale. This is not just the analysis of the micro changes in history, of civilisations rising and falling looked at by academics. This is the time of a chance for Mankind to become led by Humankind, or for a continued collapse of global leadership plunging the planet into Atlantis II.

It is not just up to the new leaders that must appear, it is up to whether Mankind can then submit enough to be led.

There is a global disease, a bottom line fixation and a top line disintegration. Elites are being exposed as predators infecting systems further with blackmail and deliberate corruption of good-will with ill-will.

Conspiracy theorists are of little help as they only increase anxiety with their half-baked information that does not integrate the Singularity of Consciousness.

The challenge to bear witness to a metaphysical message that is not just an asset stripping exercise upon old and failing religions is impossible without God instigates the preparation and the delivery of the resolution to such a challenge.

Because of the foundation work that I have done, and the work that this foundation grants to me on a daily basis, I can help translate so-called spiritual words into a twenty-first century vernacular if they are too much of a hindrance for people who have decided that they want to try to change their behaviours. (link added 4/10/19)

What I do not change and simply repeat are the basic principles, in fact the basic principle quoted above from the AA 12 Step Programme, actually from Al Ghawth that is that, “without help it is too much for us. But there is One with all Power. That One is God, may you find Him now.”

Points to ponder

The message of a top-line collapse rendering the Executive function of Corporations and governmental Cabinet Offices to a state of collapse is not a message that was ever destined to be easy to deliver.

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.

Liam Gallagher’s new song “Shockwave” is the theme tune for the wake-up call that is #theHUmanhealing

“Be and it is”, the only Executive Order in existence.

Nothing new about Donald J. Trump, this is not physical, political, even national, it’s about global money.

This brinkmanship has no intellectual remedy, for the narcotic of power is too perverting for that.

The last time the world faced such turmoil, then dark forces were at play: enemies were not self made men, they were backed by big money, who after the war made even bigger money.

This is a spiritual stand to.

Do not let the chaff of contrived events put you off from the coherency of your Light, your intuition, your inspiration.

Neither become filled with blame, international politics, organised crime, corporate excesses, systemic cul-de-sacs of executive justifications of unjustifiable differentials, all are victims now of a bottom-line fixation and a top-line disintegration.

Amidst the General Public, so whipped up into predictable factions, where are the individuals possessed of common sense, of conscious work upon themselves? Is it any wonder the leaders are like they are?

Religions are of no help here, they have been systematically bamboozled over many decades now in preparation for these times.
Spiritual leadership is required. Not the academic quoting of powerful Masters of past battles, nor the comfort zone of the silsila of standing at a revered tomb. This is the time for being the mystic, for being present, for being the “Kun fayya kun” of One Love as the only Executive Order that actually has any lasting efficacy.

The Way lives most accessibly in the living hearts of the present spiritual throng, God’s Dry Powder, beyond secular divided belief, The Believers.

No physical enmity is required, the unwitting donkeys of political and financial power have no choice in their great fear based protocols.

The canniving of the intellectual cleverness, the taboo breakers in Masonic and occult secret meetings that crunch metadata to swirl the addled flocks to their barks and whistles, they have no power that is not given to them at this time.

All power is from One Source.

Remember that these days are about an invisible battle, the will to serve Love, to be true to your Highest Power.

Then you will see the terrible rôle that the harrowers of an era have to bear as they contort themselves in their preening, pompous Queen of Hearts rendition of their beliefs, that they have no control over, they simply push the poo from one corner of the cage to another.

Yet, as they head-down, push their gold and poo across the cage, many many people may suddenly see that the Universal cage door of Human Being is wide open, that it has never actually ever been shut at all!

So, keep your head up. The Human, being you, knows The Human, being me, as We recognise each other at the cage door that has never ever been locked shut at all!
Hu hu.

Demonstrations of Power

“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.

Spiritual Principles – making the fire cool

It is said that God “made the fire cool” for Abraham when his enemies threw him into the fire for challenging their corruption with the simple statement that there is “no God, but One God”.

In this era, this age of technology, terror, counter-terror, political sterility, conspiracy theory, corporate interference, hidden plutocrats, natural disaster, financial mismanagement, amazing achievement, colossal wastage …. the stories of the Patriarchs tell us that nothing much has changed wherever the exercising of great power by the few over the many is involved.

All power comes from One Source.

That may be difficult for the divided brain to understand, for the brain riven with inner animosity that needs the outer screen of otherness and events to project the trickle charge of its experience that passes as its life, to understand.

However, as Abraham’s story witnesses, the only way to confront the excesses and imbalances of earthly power and survive, the only way, is to acknowledge the source of all power as One, then to hang on to the rope of that singular fact.

If those that have more power than you and are intent on harming you are confronted head on, then prepare to be overcome.

If the single source of all power is attached to first, then the fire of your opponents’ power is made cool for you, if their power actually has transgressed beyond bounds.

If an opponent’s given power hasn’t transgressed beyond bounds and you find yourself in a confrontation with the powerful, then even if you are attached to the single source of all power, you will be burned. Such sacrifice is not wasted however, it may accelerate the eventual transgression of an opponent’s given bounds and their subsequent demise and you will travel home with a clear conscience and in good faith: or, if the challenge is erroneous and unconscionable, the greater power in victory may further awake to stay in bounds and eras of great peace will ensue.

The moral of the story being that whatever you do is right if it is from your conscience and if you have truly exhausted all inner efforts to avoid outer confrontation first, by submitting your situation to The One, loving Itself, in Itself, from Itself, by Itself, to Itself.

Then, whether you win or lose, The One empowers and protects, however in all matters, the inner battle in an individual is the most important fight. The battle to be interiorly whole is the actual message of all the Messengers – the Western religions, the Bhagavad Gita, Buddhism – for if enough people win through in that great personal battle in an era, peace is exteriorly guaranteed.

Man proposes, God disposes.

So what does that arcane language mean to the internet savvy sophisticates of the twenty first century? Well, for a start, the above arcane language issues from the undivided brain of a contemporary man. If that fact doesn’t command respect and curiosity then let’s try to find a way to help you anyway 😉

What the old stories try to convey is that the duality power, however or whatever it appears to be, is always stuck in that duality paradigm mine and not mine, or me and my enemy.

When you realise that your enemy is given to you from the same place that you originate from, you might still temporarily hate him/her, but the dynamic of any eventual confrontation is irrevocably altered.

Propaganda is designed to promote amnesia around the fact of a common Source Code for the different cultures of mankind. (link added February 2019) Political propaganda removes the dots from the ☯️ Yin-Yang of the actual eternal Human template, to pirate Mankind into a compound of an ideology’s limited temporal power grab of what always degenerates into a personality based Empire.

Fear of death, then actually killing anyone (actually or reputationaly) who refuses to join in on any campaign against the other side, is the fuel pellet of command and control through these ages past into the present day.

This world is a workhouse, a bridge. A place cast in space to pass through from a place, to a place. The physical body is a passing vehicle to enable you to pass through this passing place.

Or to translate this by transposing another meaning to the word pass.

This world is a workhouse, a bridge. A place cast in space to die through from a place, to a place. The physical body is a dying vehicle to enable you to die through this dying place.

If this seems just too too impossible to be true, then check with the ancient Bhagavad Gita.

We all pass: who then fails?
