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.
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.
Oh to be a modern man No rites of passage
Trashed religious package
Caught between news of marauders
Brutal abusers and Benny Hill musers
All tarred with the same brush
The seduction dance frozen
G-spots, wi-fi hot spots
Loose Women programmes
Fifty Shades logjams
Performed and written by feminine forces
Poor men …
Like animals or birds
Forced to dance, lock horns,
Preen their feathers
Not a word or thought out of place, Until she instigates Her policy of no regret
Just don’t dare to refuse her
Don’t then say no …
For it’s the woman scorned
That makes Hell’s fury seem nought
It’s Salome that had The Baptist’s head bought
It’s Delilah had Samson’s power clipped
It’s the other man’s wife
Clawed Joseph’s back
Then blamed him …
So …. The Human, being me,
Meets The Human, being you, In the dying art of animal husbandry.
The stone is St One, the essence of who you are. The stone unites opposites, brings seemingly irreconcilable positions together. The stone is the majestic throne of your own becoming.
The stone is the tone reverberating from your intention. The stone contains the notes of the whole of Creation.
The stone transforms your life, redeems your soul, connects you to your Self. Every stone is precious.
The stone is eternal, hidden yet blatant, the root of all being.
The stone comes to life in your conscience, chiselled by your precious blade, beaten with your own hammer of Consciousness.
Petrification turns you to stone, so it is in transforming your fear that you are essentially reunited with your very Self.
You cannot be the stone, for there is only One, but you can find the stone in you and that then lets you be the One yourself.
Whether the stone seems to you like a well, a sheer face, a wall, a mine, a pile, a mill or a quarry, a waterfall even, whatever way the stone appears to you, eventually you must hurl every atom of who you imagine you are upon and into it.
The stone essentiallyopens. The stone opens and is opened not by the vizier’s intellect, but by Aladdin’s love.
This is the stone that brought down Goliath. This is the stone that brings down every, Goliath, Pharaoh, Empire, dynasty and despot, eventually when one appears prepared to throw it.
Jesus replied, “You surely know that the Scriptures say, ‘The stone the builders tossed aside is now the most important stone of all. This is something the Lord has done, and it is amazing to us.’ (Matt 21:42 Contemporary English Version)
”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 ….
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.
The Devil is very clever. Everyone has God and the Devil inside according to the dervish, and for the dervish the way is to emulate Muhammad (pbuh) who said that for him his Devil had submitted.
So, in my arrival at a view, I am sensitive to any apparent Enlightenment that actually does not see the full worth of this extraordinary creation that is Mankind, that sees the mistakes of Mankind as somehow proving that it’s all gone wrong, that there is great delusion in relating to material creation, that God has got it all wrong.
There is sickness, the dervish says that God sends sickness to His favourites. So, because there is sickness, there is also the possibility of healing.
This healing of sickness is inherent in seeing the full majesty and beauty of Earth’s creation and of Mankind’s conscious self-awareness of Love as being an intrinsic part of Earth’s creativity – or else why bother with sacrificing time and effort to serve other people at all?
Spiritual teachings that subtly seek to return people to an inner place of quasi-happiness by maligning the messiness and disasters of peoples attempts to love, without first being clear about the overall worth of those efforts as being magnificent, are in fact satanic. The design of Mankind is not a mistake, the Prophetic principles that point to a conscious Source for everything do not diminish seeking to know other people in love to experience being. The spiritual principles are delivered to help heal when these efforts inevitably go wrong, for mistakes mean experience, experience calibrates conscience, conscience is the only arbiter of individuation in the wrestling match between the inner God and Devil that is our kindergarten psychic birthright.
Happiness is beingness. Beingness is not just an inner attainment, its beauty is messy, majestic, muddy, moody and magnificent.
The question to my left and right hands, to my psyche, the place of my angels, the place of my djinn, is the eternal question from “O God”, to God and the Devil, “now, will you bow down and worship that which I have created?”
My Devil says “yes”, (bows down).
God makes this world with both of His hands, they don’t often come together in a person until life has unfolded plausibly, that is, to a point of personal applause that has escaped from a teacher’s temporary clap-trap.
I am not an emitter of Light
I am a transmitter of light
After that emission is received
I am a prism
Connected at all points by One
Connected at my centre as one.
Light travels in straight lines
Light passes through me
To then appear as my understanding.
It is my understanding that transmits,
What is this to you?
Truthfully, I don’t know.
My mission is to transmit to Source,
That’s why I was made.
To work for a Source who
“…. was a hidden treasure,
who loved to be known,
I created the world and the universes
That I should be known.”
So, I am here to fulfill that template.
Who you are, I don’t know,
Except those amongst you
Seem occasionally familiar to me.
But in my life, I may only have met
A few, amongst a few.
Shams met only one, then left soon after.
What is your first reaction to this?
Things are manufactured, situations can be manufactured, now even organic life can be manufactured. The initial three letters of the word manufacture give the clue to a process.
Visible things that are made have a source, a provenance.
In the light of the current research by scientists that describe a necessary matrix of invisible matter that supports the whole visible materiality, it may now not stretch the imagination too much to state that all visible phenomena are as a result of an invisible phenomenon, a Source, that all visible phenomena actually do have an invisible provenance.
Visible things have a chain of connectivity, an address. This is manifest in a birth certificate or on a label for example that might say ‘Made in Britain’.
Invisible effects have a chain of connectivity, Beingness that becomes as it were, a signature to all things.
The politics of materiality revolve around resource. The word resource denotes a returning to a source. The source of power enjoyed by material leaders is to be found only in the people that submit, willingly or unwillingly, knowingly or unknowingly, to their leadership. Accoutrements to that power are found in manufactured value that is placed on metals, gems, money and structures of worship that codify what people accept as being of worth to them.
Much effort is expended to foster a sense of union between the structure of leadership and those that are led. This effort forces such union as there may be either by fear, or it attracts into union by persuasion. Both types of effort by leaders and their led, involve a certain subterfuge as the leaders are juxtaposing the power between themselves and the folk to be led around a Singular word that is source.
There is a Source to all invisible phenomena. A person in union with that Source is a resource.
Eventually history, that is simply a malleable recording of aspects of time, exposes then often disposes of the reputations of material sources of power. That same history is placed in an overall era that is defined by the invisible Source, e.g. this year is 2015 AD, or in the year of Our Lord 2015.
To solve material problems the structures of governance look to their resources and their sources.
To understand era change and how to access the resources to navigate and survive this change, people wittingly or unwittingly find themselves looking to their invisible resources and to their Sources and eventually to the Source of those Sources.
If religions and their derivative intellectual politics are failing to be a resource for problem solving but are becoming existentially the very problem to be solved, then it is always because the union between visible and invisible power has broken, whatever the leaders of any such religion or their politics might try to pretend.
Eventually, whether the person in Union with The Source wishes to or not, the material conditions reach a tipping point wherein a window opens that is so urgent in its opening, that their usually hidden resource suddenly becomes universally accessible. As the Sufi says, ‘every Pharaoh has a Moses’.
How long that window remains open is always materially limited even though its resource is spiritually limitless.
