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.)
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.
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.
Theories of general leadership abound in the 21st century, just tune into LinkedIn if you don’t believe me.
Known so-called spiritual leaders past and present are placed under the analytical microscopes of academics, experts, historians, theologians, sociologists, religionists and psychologists, to name but a few, as if some universal component of success could be gleaned from such studies, to be then sold on to the millions of new-age aspirants for huge sums of money!
A new spiritual leader has therefore a considerable assault course of boxes to tick, it may be thought, if they are to be successful in getting started, such thoughts are however erroneous.
A spiritual leader in a group situation is a temporary point of conducted energy. In its function this temporary point allows a specific group effort an orientation of a singular nature, so that there is a chance of successful conclusion to either a clearly consensualaim, or even an emergency aim that seems somehow to have been imposed upon the group by general circumstances.
One to one contact with a spiritual leader is always logistically difficult it seems, never more so than in the 21st century, so a utilisation of contemporary methodologies of communication is called for.
Religious leaders in all of the global denominations talk of Unity but find it hard to escape from aspects of their particular religion’s fame and hypocritical history that almost entirely collapses their efforts when it comes to conversing about what death really is and what happens to a personal sense of self upon the death of the physical body.
You know the difference between physical sleeping and waking. There is also an experiential, definite difference between metaphysical sleeping and waking, that is just as simple. The spiritual leader helps a person wake up spiritually …. there’s a surprise! 😉
The actual waking up in a person has in truth already started when a person finds themself attracted to an authentic spiritual leader, for the leader is more like a midwife to, rather than an inseminator of, a person’s metaphysical awakening.
Only in and with a metaphysically awakened person is the conversation about birth and death a viable possibility. This is why the Christ Jesus is reported as having said, “let the dead bury their own dead, I am living follow me now.”
The Christ Jesus was not being gratuitously rude, He was simply stating what I have just said for the people of His time.
Fortunately for me, there is a vehicle already in place on Earth, given by the experience of my spiritual forebears, built by the blood, sweat and tears of millions of awakened people over the last 85 years, that makes my present work possible.
In most people on Earth, when they are looked at as potential personal plugs into the Universal Consciousness that pervades Mankind, then they actually have a kind of proxy-consciousness as the brown wire in their appearance is “a person, a place or a thing”.
Clearly then, this message has never been popular, it is not popular now. How can a person who seems to be successful with the thing of money as the proxy brown wire in his or her personal plug into a “life-current”, be expected to react when told that this arrangement renders him asleep, that they only have trickle-charge access to a current moment, to a present moment, as if dead to their own Higher Self?
How can a person who has inherited the proxy brown wire thing of a religion that so many people seem to buy into with its many holy places, be expected to react when told that this arrangement renders him if not quite as fully asleep as a money wired person, still he is actually no where near fully awake?
History says that if apparently successful people are told of their actual condition vis-a-vis their metaphysical connectivity, they deny the message and get very angry with the messenger!
So today, why am I driving my taxi and not being listened to by the medical authorities when I talk about my message that the therapeutic world is like a desert, that the best efforts of most of the world’s psychiatrists, psychologists and counsellors are making matters worse not better?
Why am I driving my taxi burdened by the financial debt of lost earnings, not being listened to, as I have taken the time to write my blogs challenging the corporate and political leaders of this time as they’re stagnating and collapsing because of they’re actually being ill in their executive effectiveness in same way that addicts collapse in illness?
It’s clear isn’t it? The paradox carrier historically is about as welcome as a disease carrier to orthodox power, yet aren’t they proved over and over again to have been the mirror held up to collapsing orthodoxy that none wish to look into, that is the opening part of their message.
When conditions deteriorate further, there may be time for my work to succeed, there may not, only God knows.
“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.
Half measures availed us nothing. We stood at the turning point. We asked His protection and care with complete abandon. Here are the steps we took, which are suggested as a program of recovery:
1. We admitted we were powerless over alcohol —that our lives had become unmanageable.
2. Came to believe that a Power greater than our-selves could restore us to sanity.
3 Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood Him.
4. Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of ourselves.
5. Admitted to God, to ourselves, and to another human being the exact nature of our wrongs.
6. Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
7. Humbly asked Him to remove our shortcomings.
8. Made a list of all persons we had harmed, and became willing to make amends to them all.
9. Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
10. Continued to take personal inventory and when we were wrong promptly admitted it.
11. Sought through prayer and meditation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understood Him, praying only for knowledge of His will for us and the power to carry that out.
12. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to alcoholics, and to practice these principles in all our affairs.
Many of us exclaimed, “What an order! I can’t go through with it.” Do not be discouraged. No one among us has been able to maintain anything like perfect adherence to these principles. We are not saints. The point is, that we are willing to grow along spiritual lines. The principles we have set down are guides to progress. We claim spiritual progress rather than spiritual perfection.
(AA Basic Text 1937)
These Spiritual principles of the Spiritual Kindergarten are timeless and remedy the devilry that is manifested by envy and resentment.
Many people these days are looking for a New Age asset stripped version of the blood and thunder religions of past centuries. In recovery dynamics this is called looking for the easier softer way.
Unless a person can lay down the foundation protection that these divinely simple Steps provide, any attempt at a 21st century exploration of inner space is as doomed to failure as would the prospect of going into outer space without a space-ship.
In fact the global religious trigger points that fill the news channels 24/7 offer ample evidence of an encroaching insanity of which #Brexit is but a local symptom, that stubbornly refuses to respond to the partisan systems purportedly of the same Holy Spirit.
If the religions did a 12 Step audit of their actual state and made amends, then their individual adherents might have some chance of enjoying a Step 11 that was actually connected to Consciousness.
Whatever side of the #Brexit argument a person find themselves on, when alcohol is replaced by whatever is the person, place or thing that is clearly causal, then Step 1 chillingly describes the actual state of the UK political Executive function over the last three years. The recent change of UK leadership when placed into an illness paradigm is almost certain to be a deepening of the calamity.
In my professional work, the expertise that I bring to Diction Resolution Therapy is based primarily on the fact that I haven’t had a drink of alcohol since May 1995 and that my professional work roots from that personal experience.
Mankind is designed to make mistakes. To make a mistake is vital in the learning process and in the individuating of a permanent Conscience for oneself, through which a precious soul can be activated by Consciousness.
Boundaries have to be applied dispassionately by a governmental function that upholds the need for people to make mistakes in order to learn. Therefore discipline is for ever to be applied without blame being attached to a redemptive process of law.
Blame is an authentic word when it is utilised as a light-house and a navigational warning not to crash upon its rock.
Defects are implicit within the make up of Mankind and in our individual personalities. These veils of light and dark that turn as quality and defect are the very ground of an experiential learning process that is Life itself in the cultural collections that appear on Earth. These defects are the very ones and zeros of the programmability of people that are made most sensible when a Source Code of Singularity is consciously connected.
When politicians for short term gain, have sought to weaponise the mistakes of opponents as proof as to why a person or a party is unfit to lead or be in power, then the body of the ordinary process of mistake based learning becomes severed from the so-called head of that body and eventually the result is UK politics 2019.
There is the phenomenon of fault when power processes fail in any organised endeavour. This is usually when mistakes are erroneously hidden for reasons of fear and imagined loss.
The way through the Gordian Knot that presents in the UK as a mirror to the rest of the world is to see clearly the contrast between mistake and fault. Then law can be processed sequentially as a “no blame” change management pathway can be built.
”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 spiritual principle behind poverty is succinctness itself at this time of remembering Christ, the sparseness of the conditions surrounding His birth, the attitude He had toward the money-lenders in The Temple when He threw them out and the categoric statement He made to the disciples when they complained about expensive perfume being applied to His feet, as He said something to the effect of “the poor will always be here, but I am only here for a short time”.
So, the way out of the conundrum is to see the World as perfect, and that the opposites are here for each other as Dickens wrote about in The Christmas Carol wherein Scrooge wakes up in time to save his soul simply by giving more of his money away.
The crisis facing Mankind is real. There is a huge money mountain that is growing and there is a huge, but smaller, debt mountain that is growing. The system cannot bring these to mountains together, more and more people are flat-lining in a dystopic and visionless collapse between these mountains.
This will challenge all of the democratic functions of the so-called Christian Empire whose officials swear an oath of democratic service using a Bible, for the catalytic act of putting money back into its proper place of service will truly trickle down into the global culture in a way that worshipping money as a commodity has never been able to do.
In 1982, I had a conversation with an Anglican Bishop about just such a possibility, that the body of Christ as the Church, might have to sacrifice itself if the hypocrisy of the historical journey of institutionalised power was to make an atonement and something of true Christianity might begin to be born.
The Bishop looked at me shocked and said, “but Andrew, a monster might be born”.
Since then of course, monstrous revelations about the behaviours of priests, nuns and clergy generally have been exposed, so it is possible to see why the Bishop was so instinctively scared in 1982, and there may be lots more that the Establishment generally has yet to suffer being borne by the public, before the New Age can land.
We have all faced considerable disaster since this process of cultural atomisation has really gathered in pace post the 2008 global banking crash. There may be much more yet that has to be borne.
The problems facing the global leaders today are spiritual problems that will only begin to be resolved under the applied vision of spiritual principles having been embodied as top-line behaviours, by leaders presently obsessed with purely bottom-line driven behaviours, bottom-line driven behaviours that give 25 people the same wealth as half of this planet’s population.
There is no quick fix. The desire for a quick fix is part of the problem. What is possible is a clarification of the real situation facing global leaders, from which clarifications new conversations can begin and the pathway to the new Epoch can begin to be written.
If the Christmas Carol principle is not extended by the richest institutions, the richest people giving of their wealth to those with nothing, then no political force alone anywhere on Earth, nationally or collectively, has any policy possibility whatsoever that has the slightest chance of averting a global nuclear war in a matter of years rather than decades, maybe even months rather than years.
This theoretical possibility explains the Tale Of Two Cities analysis that history provides. Today, this is the best of times and it is the worst of times, which in itself is a kind of Alpha/Omega description, but the hugeness of this now global current seems to smash all local and personal sensibilities to their primordial pieces.
So, how to allow The Age Of Aquarius to actually appear?
The huge celebrity driven current that drives the global juggernaut, this current is stolen from the trickle charged disconnect that results from individuals not feeling their in-breath/out-breath, their waking/sleeping, their birthday/deathday – for themselves.
When a person reclaims their own Alpha/Omega reality with their own rheostat as their con-science, then the global juggernaut is rightsized, stops acting like a rogue elephant and the “Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs” money machine is dealt with.
This begins with the small number of Alpha/Omega connected people on the planet currently, de-cloaking and taking on the degenerative interpretation of Holy Writ, challenging that which has ensured the cul-de-sac state into which the world’s political class has inversed itself, catalysing a conversation that repairs an articulation of political vision.
As Denis Healey, Labour stalwart and former Chancellor said, events don’t just happen, they’re made to happen, and they’re made to happen by those that hold the purse strings.
So, why wouldn’t global money and occult/secret connections with their knowledge of each other and their personal predilictions (boringly the same as all ruling juntas through history) use all modern power to achieve their aim of global monetisation of everyone and everything?
It’s what most people would do in their shoes, isn’t it?
What would you do with 50 billion dollars if you had stolen it legally from the system?
Sadists especially like to train compliance into the noncompliant, it’s their blind spot, their Achilles heel. Masochists it seems consent to this feigned noncompliance?
Power fetishises people, places and things – it’s what fetishism is all about, the objectifying of control and the assuaging of appetite.
Consent is the most powerful principle of these democratic times. We are told that we are governed and policed by consent. The root arbiter of control for the legal management of Mankind’s sex instinct is consent.
Take back control of your consent and see what happens for you personally and collectively. Listen to yourself, lead yourself for a change, or at least be willing to make a start on that inner journey.
Anarchy is actually a personal state of harmonious inner government, which is why the mafia of the mediocre have stolen the word and perverted its meaning to divide and rule people.
Monetised systems of power, ie systems that pay lip service to Love but actually prostitute everyone and everything for a trust only in money, are powerful only because the people consent to manipulation.
A little work on yourself is the most powerful weapon against the monetised imbalances that seek to maintain their estates.
Life has no opposite therapeutically speaking. In a modern culture that has with all good intentions “risk assessed” everything to the point of sterility, then the cathode/anode connections of our Ode to Joy, can become unwittingly disconnected.
Then, the quite natural wariness of death can turn into individual and collective levels of obsession with death as can often be seen in the news.
Illness is illness. Clearly from the point of view of entitlement, Iblis is entitled to be deceitful, it is related to His title the Misleader.
There is only One thing going on, so tact and clarity are essential. Truly, the rich are here for the poor, the poor for the rich, that both may come to their senses.
“The poor you will always have with you, I am here only for a short time ….” is attributed to Isa. If true this principle extends to the entitlement of the rich to be rich.
So, when a drunk drinks, that person is entitled with power over the functions of the body given to them as their servant, as their vehicle.
If that entitlement is exercised beyond bounds over and over again, then the body will send ever urgent messages of distress to that which holds the title over the body.
There is then a crucial window of survivability when the pain transmitted by the body meets the potential for the breakdown of denial in the entitlements of the person in the body and the person accepts illness and asks the body for help and also help from outside of its orbit from persons who know how to articulate a way to recovery.
The present 1000 people in this world who have most of the money coupled with the 150000 democratic representatives of the top 20 countries, added to the 2000 directors of the top global corporations, added to the 2000 top global organised criminals, together represent an entitled global body power dynamic that is mortally ill.
Those in the body of the global populations must transmit their pain to this brain of the world as regularly as possible, hourly, certainly daily if possible.
The message to the rich must be of no blame, but that the people know that they are very sick to be destroying the body that must serve them in their entitlements.
They can then have chance of seeing their illness and that it is not their fault and then individual Iblis resentments can relent, and wake up.
When enough of the entitled powerful relent, then they will see their relationship to the poor in their body from a wholly new place.
The challenge is to mobilise this message from the body of the world population to the entitled without it being violent or full of blame.
Dignity is with the oppressed. Dickens wrote his book A Christmas Carol to help the rich wake up whilst they still have time. Morris West took this simple panacea to its logical end in his book in The Shoes Of The Fisherman.
My work is to help with this almost impossible message, it is not clear to me whether it is to be successful.
I am everything that a man can be and still remain incarnate of God, but it is as I have written, I have no plan other than, I am the plan …. as Gandhi said, “be the change that you want to see in the world”.
It is, it seems, somehow writing itself and clarifying, even if only between me and thee, so thank you for reading this.
What a circus. Time was when folks would pay to see the tattooed lady in a side show of the main event at a circus …. now the tattooists are the growth industry in every town and city. The bearded lady was in the show next to the tattooed lady, now she wins a global singing event.
Politics is then reduced to the former pantomime status and a parody of former presumed glory, with rare truth tellers like MPs Dennis Skinner, Martin Bell or Tom Watson often reduced by the media to side show notoriety. All the while International footballers are promoted to being global icons who are no more dexterous than acrobats of old music hall fame with most being lamentably less eloquent.
Five years after this post was written, I have inserted the following paragraph and Facebook post with video footage.
The above mentioned Tom Watson MP has become the Deputy Leader of the UK Labour Party. Donald Trump has become the President of the US and sends tweets out most nights.
Sinéad O’Connor has always been ahead of her time as this video statement of the abuse being hidden in the Catholic Church that she knew about, goes to prove.
Instincts that are non language specific are squitting out across global cultures as feeling powered knee jerk actions that reduce rational thought and conducted emotion as a quirky behaviour of the boringly sane.
Money supply in the hands of private concerns whilst governments run their franchised economies like the management teams of a Macdonalds: rule by short termism and policy made in a tweet.
So with Mr. Flowers, he is not one lone rogue figure. He symbolises the sickness infecting the whole global financial quasi crime scene.
When the spokesperson for the banks said to the public and to Government after the 2008/9 Crash that, “no-one could have foreseen the Crash coming”, he was lying. Everyone in business that I have spoken to over the last five years concurs that everyone in the banking sector knew that the Crash was coming, but nobody could face exposing the short termism of the Ponzi style calamity that was surrounding them at that time and expect to keep their job. So they all drove over the cliff edge together.
Because the banks have built their recovery on that single lie, the recovery is not viable, the system must crash again.
In every human endeavour we fail our way forward, mistakes are embraced as the only way to learn anything, from walking to playing a violin to loving one another. Yet politicians have trapped themselves in fear of losing votes, talking down markets, losing face … trapped themselves into the sterility of making a mistake into the club with which to destroy the reputation of an opponent, and the barking crowds have fallen for this insanity helped by the media rent a gob …. Barabbas is freed over and over again and the principle of truth in a politician’s conscience is betrayed in the “Place of the Skull” then crucified over and over by order of the Chief Whip ….
