My days are not presently a furnace of stress and anxiety, so I guess that what I need is flowing to me, indeed that it already has flowed to me. So, is anything attracting me? If so, whatever the appearances, there is a mutuality.
Then, within this secret, is there a choice of action?
Of course there is. Discernment, propriety, experience, choice – these words are legitimate within the movement around a Higher Emotional Centre.
However, this movement around a Higher Emotional Centre, to be articulate in this expression, requires a vehicle of transmission that individual people must build experientially for themselves.
In the furnace of stress and anxiety that Rumi talks about, there is the clutching after people, places and things in an attempt to fit into what a culture is saying is the way to be successful, viable, legal etc.
The 12 Step Programme is the remedy for when the personal “clutch” is broken. Stuck and broken Addiction is when a person is either fixated and stuck on with their will, or when a person’s drive and will is inaccessible to them as a previously stuck on situation has smashed their clutch, or ignorance as to how will actually works has rendered their power transmission as inoperable through fear of clutching at anything at all.
This metaphor is of course only a symbolic and kindergarten representation around the sublimity of Mankind’s potential to interface their mechanical biological drives with an invisible energy Source in articulations that allow the arrival experientially of a Human journey of becoming.
The Holy Spirit is simply “invisible energy” in the same principle that X-rays are an invisible energy. Equally, just as known invisible energy contactibility is investigated and utilised in science in basic terms of “source, transmission and reception”, just so is it possible to approach The Holy Spirit phenomenologically.
The Holy Spirit enters into the engine of the Diction Chamber in the diagram above. So, as it tells you in the formatting of St John’s Gospel, “in the beginning was the Word….”.
When stuck and broken Addiction has broken the above diagram, then the Diction Chamber atrophies and becomes the castle in The Sleeping Beauty story.
The phenomena of millions of people being healed over the last 85 years within an application of the 12 Step Programme now provides Mankind with a reproducible technology of the heart, mind and body connectivity of men and women and the power dynamics of successful Human healing when the transmission of the power of Love suffers a catastrophic breakdown.
What this description is actually exposing is that a deeper technology is being made available within a movement out of a spiritual kindergarten.
Returning to this previous blog post called The Sphere continues to shed light at this time – click on this link.

1. “When ready, we say something like this: “My Creator, I am now willing that you should have all of me, good and bad. I pray that you now remove from me every single defect of character which stands in the way of my usefulness to you and my fellows. Grant me strength, as I go out from here, to do your bidding. Amen.” We have then completed Step Seven.”
2. “And we have ceased fighting anything or anyone — even alcohol. For by this time sanity will have returned. We will seldom be interested in liquor. If tempted, we recoil from it as from a hot flame. We react sanely and normally, and we will find that this has happened automatically. We will see that our new attitude toward liquor has been given us without any thought or effort on our part. It just comes! That is the miracle of it. We are not fighting it, neither are we avoiding temptation. We feel as though we had been placed in a position of neutrality — safe and protected. We have not even sworn off. Instead, the problem has been removed.”
(From the Basic Text of the 12 Step Programme)
This first quote then is the second rite of passage that completes the construction of the vehicle that permits the neutral place to manifest as described in the second quote.
The 12 Step Programme connects all opposites both visible and invisible as is the actual template anyway as described by Rumi in the 13th century.
This describes the eventual connection of left and right hemisphere in the brain as consciousness meets conscience in a whole brained person when the Creation story is internalised and the angelic functions are experienced as the potential synaptic connectivity of the psyche as delineated by Muhyiddin Ibn Arabi in the 13th century also.
“So you see, this is heresy”. (Joseph Campbell)
Heresy … the apparent position of the Sufi throughout history 😉😂🌄
