Conscious-Contact 1

In the huge recovery industry that has been spawned by the arrival of the 12Step Programme in 1937, there has been an asset stripping “gold rush” as everyman and his dog stake out a claim to “mine” from the original deep seam of redemption that is still the singleness of purpose known as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA).

This cunning asset stripping and subsequent re-branding of what is a spiritual message, by an intellectual cleverness that can’t submit to any sense of God-consciousness, is only to be expected as it has been happening for thousands of years.

The Source of the message will of course protect the original transmission of the 12Step brand, just as the cohorted charitable and corporate derivative entities attempt to copyright their constructs and financial schemes.

Some of these global entities of supposed solution bearers to hard-pressed government departments around this addicted world are not even benign in their relationship with the source of their recovery industry, they are actively hostile toward the international 12Step Fellowships that have grown from the original Programme over the last eighty years.

How do I know this? Because I have talked with an employee of Indivior – a global addiction recovery player. (The Indivior link updated in April 2019 after the exposure of alleged malpractice) If you look at their opening page on their website, it seems that they are open to a collegiate approach within the global school of experience that has as its foundation the arrival of AA in 1935.

Far from it, the person I spoke to in my taxi as I took her to the airport was vehemently against the 12Step Programme, even telling me that she spent much of her time informing funders at government level around the world that the 12Step Programme doesn’t work and that they need to buy into their corporate services and drug products.

I spoke to a man recently at an Interfaith gathering who said that no-one could prove that God exists. I said that that was no longer strictly true. I said that since 1935 there had been and still are, many millions of people who can claim conscious contact with God as they understand God. They can claim conscious contact with a Higher Power that is loving and caring that has brought them back from a fate worse than death.

“What do you mean?”, says he.

“Members of the global 12Step Fellowships can all quote their Step11 which places them all in a God-consciousness of their own understanding,” says I.

“That’s not the same as what I was saying,” says he.

“It may not be what you wanted to hear,” says I, “but it is exactly answering of your previous generalisations about God that seemed to serve your atheism so neatly.”

I really don’t object to atheists as this linked video explains ….

However, eventually the conditions on the ground will be met with a message of sanity that is evidence based, irrefutable, compassionate, timely, tremendous and true.

Once the message is delivered, then the recipient has the responsibility of either action or continued inertia.

The 12Step Programme is the only living Spiritual programme left on the planet, the only connection with The Holy Spirit that is practical, predicable, provable and true, redeeming the lives of all people willing to change from within any religion, atheism, secularism, humanism, sect, creed or political party.

The Higher Power of the 12Step Programme is not a theory. It is not a new linguistic programme. It is not a clever manipulation of cognition and behaviour that might last a few months. The 12Step Programme is an ineffable fact, an incredible and indestructible coherence of invisibility and visibility, of time and eternity, of ancient and modern, a triumph of belief over despair.

The 12Step Programme is unashamedly written in the language of the heart, a language that challenges the insanity of the language of the head, until the head submits.

The Singularity that the late Stephen Hawking wrote about in his cosmology that led onto looking at the boundaries of understanding for physics is a reflection of the Singularity that is the Source of the 12Step Programme and its metaphysics.

“Without help it is too much for us, but there is One who has all Power, that One is God, may you find Him now” (AA Book)

This single sentence is the nuclear core of the 12Steps. It is the same sentence spoken by every Prophet, Patriarch, Saint, Messenger and Mystic of the so-called West. It is the sentence that underpins the Eastern Hemisphere of Buddhist enlightenment as surely as a brain has two hemispheres.

It is the sentence of repetition found in the Surah Al Rahman in The Qur’an, “now which of the bounties of your Lord will you deny?”

The template of sanity for a Human being is this threefold, simple, evidence based structure, namely that a person appears as a physical, mental and spiritual being that has to be connected across its two inner interfaces of mental/physical and mental/spiritual if that person is to be described as in any way fully conscious.

God is consciousness.

Mankind arrives existentially inside consciousness, but unaware of this fact, therefore unconscious of the very forces that uphold an awareness of mortality. This is almost analogous to an imaginary conscious fish that is actually in water whilst denying that water exists.

A person who arrives at a conscious contact with this living Singularity arrives within a kindergarten of Human possibility from out of the conceptual rigour of their previous ignorance, however that conception might have appeared to have happened.

At this time, recovery from the many forms of the bellwether disease of Addiction is the paradoxical beachhead of sanity that has arrived at the junction of two eras, as the Age of Pisces gives way to the Age of Aquarius.

As at every previous time of momentous change known to Mankind, however the history of change might have been disrupted, Messengers from the Unseen decloak and engage in the almost impossible mission of trying to help the collective engage in work that is really only the province of the individual.

This time of momentous change is no different. The help is at hand. The challenge facing the helpers and those to be helped is the same, namely one of engagement.

In reading this piece, we make a start.

Higher Emotional Centre

Mother Nature provides Mankind with a physical centre of gravity. This centre allows a person to lose and regain balance seamlessly in the process of walking, running, moving in any way with the vehicle of an organic body.

The psyche sits upon this physical vehicle astride universal instincts that can simply be described as security, social and sex instincts. Feelings are pressurised by the instincts and are measurable by a person with a specific emotional guage that is attached to their con-science.

Thus in a physical body, blood pressure and feeling pressure work sympathetically, with these pressures being interpreted with a process of emotional and intellectual reaction that is then acted upon by intelligence choosing a pattern to employ behaviours.

Where this process is weakened through abusive experiences, illness or ignorance, then feeling pressure ruptures into actions that are not processed as part of a higher emotional centre becoming formed. The con-science becomes compromised and ordinary emotional processes become stilted whereupon all possibilities of a Higher Centre are temporarily cutoff.

The yin-yang template of journeying into vice and then returning to virtue cushions these collapses of conscience as simply the necessary mirroring of the physical falling down and standing up of centre of gravity formation, by the inner body of experience that is the person anyway.

In itself then, emotionally failing to process feelings can be likened to falling down. The problems start to become dangerous if the immediate line-management of a person misreads any idiosyncratic behaviours as too scary to carry on with and then proceeds to let the inner Customs and Excise department close down the inner borders of left/right hemisphere travel. The standing back up again, stops.

Then the development of a Higher Emotional Centre atrophies. The purpose of life withers and dies as the inner balance fails to develop. A personal expression then tries to hide this failure through exaggerations or fixations of expression that eventually become incapable of meaningfully integrating the journey of life: a journey designed to be connected via the necessary terminal opposites of birth and death as they pertain to both physical and metaphysical experiences.

It may be possible to resurrect the purpose of being here on Earth, as being one of co-creating this Higher Emotional Centre, for a person who has died to this purpose, but it may only happen when what has passed as life for such a person collapses around them by accident, by the disease of stuck-addiction©️ or by the loss of their props through the existential removal by Life event of the people, places or things that have co-dependently enabled them to appear alive whilst actually dead, in the first place.

As societal forces atomise old cultural forms and necessitate new forms to be developed within the current era-change, then many people are experiencing anxiety as their inner habits and their habitations collapse as if in inner earthquakes.

DRT as a therapeutic application is both a preventative to collapse and a reconstruction after collapse for both people and for systems as their hosting culture radically and irrevocabley changes.

Instigations …

Look up the dated phrase “to grant favours” …

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.

Every 2 hours in the UK a man kills himself.

Stone (Al Dhat)

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 essentially opens. 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)

The stone is again thrown, by the Eternal Potter.

Gullible

Many years ago, a philosopher asked me if I thought, as he clearly did, that I was too gullible. Through the years, his question has often returned to me, often closing me down from continuing with a view of the world that at my heart, is naturally open and loving.

Thankfully, I have never been able to imprison my gullibility permanently, it has always escaped to save me. It returns like my inner Pied Piper of Hamlyn, my inner Kay to rescue the Kai of my intellect, my inner Prince to kiss my Sleeping Beauty and release my Cinderella from my own Ugly Sisters. It even flew me to a Union with Allah, to the birthing of my soul.

Gullibility is fathomless like the deepest ocean that accepts all rivers. It is the innocence of the dove that redeems the wisdom of the serpent. It is green. I am the gullible man, the green man.

Now of course, I understood what the philosopher meant, he liked me and was fearful for my survival. He was fearful about many things. I was to learn that he was fearful for his academic reputation when, after he had given it to me, in my gullibility I gave a copy of an academic essay on the Unity of Existence called The Twentynine Pages to one of his colleagues. I received a very stern reprimand and was told to retrieve the document forthwith.

I have learnt much from these wisdoms, given to me by my experience of other people and by my exhaustive journey through my own fear and through my reception of the fears of others, both clear and covert, and my journey through those. The fear journeys were similar, but eventually I came to know what was my fear, as against what was the fear held by others.

I can only grow through facing my own fear. The fear that other people hold is not of any ultimate use to me, except that sometimes it has proved to have been part of the detonation of the propellent of my salmon-like journey up the waterfall of my own fear.

This world has become again incredulous, cynical and suspicious of the existence of Love as the Source of all matter, all sentience, all energy and all Life.

You’d have to be very gullible indeed to believe me if I were to tell you who I really am. (however, in a back to the future moment added on 11/1/2020 try putting ‘unseen leader of the world’ into your search engine 😉)

So, for the moment, we carry on with the dance of the Seven Veils. Seven or seventy thousand, makes no difference you see, for these veils of light and dark, of innocence and cynicism, of trust and fear, well, these veils can only be removed by Love.

Alpha and Omega

The Alpha and Omega have never, ever been separated, they are imagined to be so in matter by a psyche that though itself a current, has become unwittingly corrupted by thinking the cathode/anode disarrangements of its own vehicle are more important than the current moment of its possible awareness.

To be so connected as an Alpha/Omega manifestation is to be The Human appearing as being a person.

These manifestations are so powerful when they appear that the whole species of Mankind has taken as its name Humankind, though as a totality of a physical manifestation Humankind is still only theoretically possible rather than actually here.

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.

This process is not without risk of course, as history can bear witness, but timing is everything and The Bhagavad Gita is quite clear on The One being all there is in any event and that the old ways have already died.

The battle is to overcome inner familiar relations, not to officiously fight on the material plane.

The lesser jihad has gone, The Greater Jihad is in reconnecting the actual terminals of our actual existence – now.

Song Sung You

How to keep open when the energy seems so discordant?
A friend asked me this question today. I found myself quoting the Islamic prayer, “God, I seek refuge in You, from You.”
This is the most powerful prayer that there is in my experience, where Love is the only refuge anyway.
Then I listened to the word, “protect”.
I then remembered Jonah and the message of the story that there is no where to run, that when I think that I’m running away, actually, because there’s only One, I’m running toward.
Then it appeared to me that the greatest protection is to drop all detection.
As it says in The Qur’an, if God sends you a test, nothing can stop it arriving; if God sends you a gift, nothing can step it from arriving.
There is no detective work needed about this world. There is One doing.
Your world is like it is because you are like you are.
My world is like it is because I am like I am.
Change is possible. “Be the change”, as Gandhi said, but remember that only One has the power to do, that’s for the asking.
No blame is necessary and God doesn’t make mistakes, they’re your job, that’s our task, everything is perfect.
To connect the ascending with the descending is transcending, then it’s simply a matter of how wide your circle is, how much your sphere can encompass.
Amo, Amas, Amat, Amamus, Amatis, Amant.

Light

Shedding tears
Shedding fears
Shedding the skin of old ways
Shedding light upon new days

The light that lightens
The light that brightens
Issues not just from the flame
Issues not just through the pane

Light transmits (from)
Light commits (to)
Sources are points of transmission
Mankind accepts Love’s commission

Or not.

What is known

What is known is only of any use as a vehicle to take me to what I don’t know. We all know this, but somehow conveniently forget this primary reason for existence – to come to know.

If politicians were to enter a debate truly not knowing what is to come out of that debate, then the result would be better than either side of a polemic. The result of a debate appears in the middle ground of the opposing views. This result may appear to favour one side of an argument, more cathode than anode, however the ode is more than either.

It is of little use criticising the way existence appears to Mankind. The created can’t create a dung eating fly exnihilo, let alone a Universe. We can take it apart and analyse it, but ‘creation’ is a wholly singular enterprise.

A view of the last century is of civilisations being clashed together with great force in a Hadron styled war and conflict collider, that then left a residue that has industrialised global economic activity, created the model of the UK National Health Service, made the UN, put men on the moon, tested out Communism, ran Capitalism to destruction.

What is to happen now then? Is this clashing of materials known as Man the only way for Consciousness to reflect upon Itself?

There either is a Source Code, or there isn’t. There either is a link to Abrahamic prophecy, Moses, Christ and Muhammad (sa) as they meet The Buddha, the Sikhs and Krishna, or there is not.

My personal experience states that there is a Source Code and that there is a Universal Linkage across globally known Messengers of Spirit. There are many people in this time who know that there is a connection across cultures of spiritual expression, they can lecture about Sufis, saints, sinners and celebrants of every faith manager that’s ever been.

So, what does that make me? Am I something really special? Am I threatening to upend religions by claiming to be Jesus Christ returned? Am I the hidden Imam? Am I to be seen as Maitreya? Am I the eventual Messiah of the Jews? Am I the Sufi who is perennially known as the Madman of God?

Or, do I take what I know of myself and approach what I do not know, the same as everyone else on this planet? What does my experience in this life of mine make me? I don’t know – and neither do you.

So, there is the possibility of a dialogue, a conversation, a meeting in a place of our not knowing.

I approach any such possibility of a meeting bringing only my direct personal experience. After having attended such meetings before where people who seemed to me to imply more from their own moot points of academic reference, that I couldn’t, indeed shouldn’t be saying things that they definitely wouldn’t say, I confess to having some sense of why should I bother myself again?

Destiny …. they said that they would help me; perhaps I was simply a little early.

I am prepared to be anything that Consciousness wishes Itself to be within the mortal constraint of my conscience. The preparatory cost to myself and others of that place of conscience and the precious Love that defines its stretch, is all that I know of myself biographically. This biographical knowledge and the identity jigsaw attached to it, though perhaps of seeming importance to a celebrity infected culture, is actually of little real importance compared to what can practically be done.

Whether I am of any use to anyone, whether anything can actually be done, is however utterly unknown to me.

If not now, when? If not me, who? If not us, who?

(As a postscript, this input from the future I include here in the miracle of the edit to contextualise what is known to me from experience as I approach the unknown events to come 🌹https://lifeisreturning.com/2018/10/23/grand-master/)

CONSPIRACY, TRUTH, ALTERNATIVE FACTS

In all the swirling smoke of YouTube, pundits, my own blogs, mainstream news, fictional stories, religious dogma, digital power, financial persuasion ….. what is actually happening?
All I have is an analysis of a bellwether spiritual illness to offer as the global therapy room of an Executive Alternative Story of Yesterday (EASY).
The chances of my voice coming through the chaff of media dissonance are almost non existent. The chances of my Counselling Service gaining traction in a National Health Service that is a living symbol of the very disease that I’m identifying are, frankly, almost non existent.
Am I bothered? My Supervisor asked me that question yesterday as we fulfilled the BACP criterion of regular supervision and she wondered how it felt to be a Counsellor with few clients, a Corporate Messenger without recipients.
I explained that ‘tough love’ was very much at the core of 12 Step dynamics, a practical message carried into the blazing impracticality that is the disease of stuck-addiction©. I shared that the same faith that made the fire cool for Abraham so many centuries ago, is the same insulation that wraps around the global members of 12 Step Fellowships, and my own particular efforts as well.
The pantomime of power has always been the same. The magicians and astrologers have always conjured around their cauldrons of worldly desire, dancing to the despots whip that cracks as the masses cower.
What’s new on their stage today 👌 nothing, same old same old.
Why do I try, what am I bothered about?
I’m trying for my own soul, just like it says in every religion, work out your own salvation with diligence.
Is that selfish? Seems so at first, the 12 Steps are called a ‘selfish programme’, yet then Step 12 says ‘carry a message’.
So, that’s my bottom line. When you’re sick of being sick, there’s a way out. Same thing that Plato wrote about in The Republic when he talked about the cave dwellers who preferred looking at their shadows on the wall when they were offered a path to the sunshine outside.
What I’m truly not bothered about is the news media, the politicians, the bankers, the super-rich, the roaring whipped up crowd shouting for the release of Barabus.
I meet with you in The Heart.

Paradox

Paradox challenges the orthodox, but paradox is not achieved in thought, for paradox is about the ‘union of opposites’ and as Tom Chetwynd ©1982 correctly states in his Dictionary of Symbols Thorsons edition 1998 p314,
“The UNION of opposites cannot be achieved by the Thinking FUNCTION, or the Conscious Ego, which always stands opposite the Unconscious, where everything is reversed as in a  MIRROR. Paradox expresses the two sides of life and nature, which are double-sided, double-edged, both conscious and unconscious. These two sides can only be reconciled through will and action, when Conscious and unconscious work in unison, with the Ego related to the higher SELF. Paradox is despised by the intellect, but prized by the whole person. By holding both sides of truth in conscious opposition, paradox can become the agent of their union. It stays rather close to the feminine archetype of Life, rather than the masculine archetype of Logic. It has a value in expressing intuitions about the Future and in relating to the UNKNOWN.

Paradox was of particular importance to the ALCHEMISTS, who used it to describe their Philosopher’s Stone, the goal and product of their labour: Their work was to heal the SPLIT in consciousness first by clearly differentiating the opposites and then by expressing both sides in one breath.”

My whole life’s work is as a living paradox. My blogs bear witness to my ability to counsel across apparent divisions with a diagnostic method that can bring opposing sides together. My life journey, through almost impossible failure, change and survival is one of alchemy and spiritual attainment that intellects can find difficult to understand, that I have found difficult to make practical and relevant.

My book written in 1997 is from the place of the magister, another word for the Philosopher’s Stone mentioned by Chetwynd.

All of this becomes clear to me as a necessity of this work, to try to be of service, to be able to withstand the forces that range against me and vitalise those forces that are inclined to support.

My message of stuck-addiction© is I see now an effort to find a portal to be of service as a living agent of change, a catalyst to enable a resolution to apparently intractable problems, but that the intellectual opposition to my efforts is not imaginary.

I am being drawn to make another concentrated effort to deliver my abilities to the places where there is the possibility of success in areas of individual and group therapy as well as support for a wider systemic consultation process to be a catalyst for arbitration and innovation.

There can be some very interesting and passionate notions about the apparent difference between God the transcendent and God the immanent, so far as a person can experience states conducive to holding an actual notion about such matters at all.

Immanent is an easy word, it has a sense of pervading everything, of being inherent in all of life and capable therefore of being experienced.

Transcendent has a sense of being beyond, of going beyond the usual or inherently measurable or experiencable forces of conscious awareness.

Thus the ‘para’ normal is riven into the word transcendent.

Yet, the words ascend and descend are defining boundaries that set the points across which the word transcend cannot escape from, nor go beyond.

So, the word transcendent simply connects the highest and the lowest possibilities of mortal awareness, of Human consciousness.

That this function of connecting Heaven and Hell is seemingly paranormal when the normal is to suffer being divided and ruled, goes some way toward explaining the arguments around God’s transcendent and immanent singularity. However, for one who is granted the function of being so perfected inherently by God in this world, that their practice has made them perfect receptors of the infinite variabilities of the immanence of their life, then for them to deny the transcendence of God would be as impossible as their denying a sunrise across a morning mist.

The paradox then connects seemingly irreconcilable opposites that the orthodox can only argue to keep apart.

Thank you for reading this post.

Hiatus

A break is a brake
Upon the wheel
The weal that marks
The place of contact
The meeting
Of perception
With events of form.
To make a stand
Resists a flow
Transforms
Into we’ll or won’t
Amidst rulers’ news
That never measured
Anything straight
Forward, ever.
Peace, the mark of
Authentic being
Is made
Then kept.
I keep the piece
Given to me
Within One whole
As mine
Not to give away as peace
But as a way
To pass my understanding.
I understand
What is that you say again?
Ah, yes, I understand.
How, how do I understand, you say?
By standing under,
By being under,
By knowing who I’m under,
By subsisting.
Love is my subsistence
Out of which
Existence appears insistent
Yet, persistence shows
That assistance happens
When least expected,
Despite resistance in oneself
To disbelieve,
Belief appears, again
Consistent upon the preparation of place.

Best Leaders

The best leaders, none know that they’re even there according to Lao Tzu, a Chinese source many thousands of years old of mysterious personal lineage. Tony Benn a not quite so ancient UK past politician was keen to quote Lao Tzu on the subject of leadership, and any search engine will soon land a seeker upon quotes from both.

President Donald J. Trump does not come any where near the paragon of leadership according to Lao Tzu and Tony Benn, but he is mentioned on the Lao Tzu leadership scale that you can find on the Internet, you can orientate President Trump on the scale for yourself.

I am personally grateful to President Trump already, for I have found my inner character component that most reacts to him, that is of course therefore most like him. So, I am attending to my inner Donald J. Trump in an integrative and firmly loving way, confident that this inner work is entirely possible.

The more that my inner work is attended to, the less the impact of the klaxon blaring of the news media affects me. I am secure in the sanity of knowing that none of this mass drama is new at all in the news sense. I am returned to the topic that has been the constant thread to my work since 1997, that as Carl Jung rightly predicted in the 1930s, no change to Humanity is possible through mass governmental processes.

The vacuum of meaning in the disinformation and propaganda machinations of the global money and geopolitical theatrics is so ubiquitous that it takes a real effort of remembrance to not get sucked into the fruitless, draining handwringing that is grist to the insanity mill that is the lot of the world’s leaders.

Their insanity is the Einstein definition of imagining that if they keep doing what they’ve always done, only louder, in a more threatening manner, in a more bullying manner, with bigger bombs, better spies, more money, bigger inauguration crowds than any Emperor has ever had in the history of insecure mad leaders who say that they only want to secure power for the Fatherland, the Motherland, the Holy Land and the Temple Precincts …. for the ordinary people …. that it will actually work this time.

There is very little I can do for anyone but me, my own soul. This is what I’m told in The Qur’an, this is what President Donald J. Trump has taught me to remember. I hear the collective Shakespearian voice of the idiot, signifying nothing, the louder that the media shouts the Empire’s proclamations …. the more that I remember my inner work, the easier it is to turn the idiot’s volume down.

Unfortunately for President Trump, even though he apparently takes the Lord Jesus Christ as his Lord and saviour according to an online preacher advocate of the President, The Christ of this era, Isa the Seal of Universal Sainthood as mentioned in Islam, as mentioned of every era, is more likely to be found with the “bad dudes”, the drunks and addicts, prostitutes, the homeless, the immigrants and refugees, the orphans and the outcasts …. than He is to be found in the US President’s plotting rooms, or any other global secret plotting palace.

He will, I’m sure, have knocked on their doors to let them know that He is here, as in every era, simply as a matter of courtesy and good manners. They will have missed the call 📞, too busy on another line probably.

Devil

The letter from Jung to Wilson is useful to see the compassion in action that is the 12Step Programme, from the point of view of a supporter and interpreter of spiritual phenomena such as Jung was and is.

That Jung mentioned the Devil in his letter is relevant to the turbulence in the world today.

Alcohol is only a symbol, we ourselves are the problem and this is stated in the 12Step programme.

Therefore when Jung describes the yearning for alcohol as actually a yearning for Union with God, then it is this same yearning for Union that hides in the antics of the obese overeater, the frazzled and disgraced sex addict, the gambling addict spending the rent that is the same as the banker who crashes a whole bank, the world leaders who start their justifiable war.

The 12Step diagnostic approach to human self-destruction is to say that it is always a spiritual malady with a spiritual solution. Further, that when the spiritual malady is rectified, then the mental and physical symptoms of said malady sort themselves very efficiently.

There is no intellectual solution for a spiritual disease. That a mind refuses to believe that it is suffering from a spiritual infection, is simply part of the illness.

As a spiritual counsellor, my rôle is first to help a client to see their dysfunction clearly and only then to engage in treatment that is consensual with a clear diagnosis.

The Devil, mentioned by Jung, is a detail of the diagnosis, a detail that is actually part of the spiritual healing once reconnected and repaired to a holistic template of Human transformation, a transformation brought about by experiencing a conscious contact with God.
