Breakdown and AA Recovery in 12 Steps.

Did Rumi actually say this?

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.

The “clutching” function is represented by the = sign in the diagram

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.

https://youtu.be/BN_NWTV2liA at 6:40 the neutral place is clarified ….


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 😉😂🌄

From her book The Living Process

Inevitable events

Physical cause and effect as an explanation of events fails to take account of the spontaneity of accumulated presence that accrues to a person and to collectives within the metaphysical realm.

That a person or a collective does not believe that the metaphysical place even exists as an invisible realm in no way limits or impacts upon the metaphysical influence upon events that materialise then into the physical realm.

Because the physical realm is concerned about the control of events and the metaphysical realm is about the serving of events, there is always tension from the official places of physical authority when anything new occurs which is out of that authority’s ability to explain or control any such occurrence.

What is the vent from which events appear?

Can a word like convent, that leads to a possible understanding of how conventions arise in society, ever escape from its religious associations?

Equally, can the word advent ever be correlated to its actual whole potential to create a sense of adventure when it lands into the psyche of one who might encounter the word in the run up to Christmas?

There have been recorded efforts in the past of people trying to find the remains of Noah’s Ark, just as there have been efforts to prove whether Jesus Christ actually exists as an actual historical person and therefore as an actual invisible presence.

Such efforts are doomed to fail, for the exoteric might deny that it is stuck in literalism, but history shows that the paradox of the esoteric messenger is often catalyst for massive resistance.

The actual Ark carries the message of the connectivity of all opposites or pairs in all places visible and invisible …. in 21st century language, the “withness” of “contact” is the tact that is built in the practicality that is “Suf”, a built place with tactics of inspiration and intuition from which a Sufi comes from only when it is experienced as a coming together of two worlds, a Jam. Only then is the flood of information transmittable into a survivable experience of “being”.

The fact that you are reading this blog post indicates that you are giving the appearance to what might seem like you are doing something about any potential escape from imprisonment. However, it may be that you are simply receiving a key destined to be given to you from the potentiality that we have always been.

In the advent of something different happening to you then your situation can change. What this means is that the word advent is a word of considerable importance as it suggests a movement toward an event.

Yet, as an event, you have already happened in total potentiality. So, your advent-age and your event-age are equal but opposite.

This means that even though from the moment you appeared on Earth you have been travelling back to the vent from which you issued, you have not been aware of that fact. So you have simply prolonged your event-age until you first got the glimmerings of the temporal u-bend involved in the arrival of a recognition unique to you, of there actually being any advantage at all to you of responding to a spiritual message of Love.

Maybe you could read that again slowly.

The advent of your personal journey to your own inner crib, whilst in the donkey of your body, realising the arch of potential function that can connect your left and right brain hemispheres – this is a journey indeed.

Message reissued

All the links on the tweet below work and the article in the UK Guardian from two years ago opens in the Facebook link.

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.

When Society Becomes an Addict
The Addictive System will lead to total destruction
The Addictive System is morally and spiritually bankrupt
We live in a world that is literally turned upside down by moral deterioration
The Addictive System is wrong about the human condition
Psychotherapy makes yet another mistake by treating disorders in isolation, out of the context of the Addictive System
Everything we know about human development has been taught by Addictive System teachers in Addictive System schools from a perspective of “reality” that is not real

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.

https://drt.global/corporate

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!!

Then read this blog post for a perspective

Healing for broken and empty words ….

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.

Pharma karma

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.

In the beginning was the Word, the Word was with God, the Word was God – opening of St John’s gospel.

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.

Landing Pad

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.)

Intercourses

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.

Jacob and Esau (1878) by George Frederick Watts

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.

These blocks are being potentially removed by the very urgency of the environmental challenges erupting on Earth, the urgency of the political collapses that have so nearly repeated Mankind’s near history of World War, the urgency of the collapse of the Ponzi Scheme that was analogue money.

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.

BBC News – Attenborough gives stark warning on climate change to UN
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-56175714

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 have conscious contact with God, as I understand God, this fact granted to me in the wording of Step 11 of a 12 Step Programme, a Programme I have practiced since 1995, a practice that actually builds upon a ‘tifl al-maani’ personal experience from 1982.

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.

Then E = mc² can be seen through the eyes of Love.

Salaam.

It’s a thin line

“a thin line”

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 factually believable.

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.

The requirement for two wings whatever is appearing.

As for the circle of haqiqa, that is different. Neither nafs nor Shaytan (Satan) can get in there; even the angels cannot enter that place. Anything besides Allah’s Essence burns there. Gabriel, peace be upon him, when explaining this to our Prophet, peace be upon him, says:

“If I move one ant’s length further, I will be burned.”

The servant of Allah in this situation is relieved from the enmity of nafs and Shaytan. He is submerged into sincerity and salvation. Allah the Most High relates Shaytan’s words as:

“I swear by your might that I will lead all astray except your sincere slaves.” (Saad 38:82-83)

The servant of Allah cannot reach haqiqa unless he possesses ikhlas (sincerity; purity), because human traits can dissolve only with the manifestation of zat (the essence or Person of Allah).

The elimination of ignorance can be attained by having knowledge and understanding of the zat of Allah. This cannot be attained through education [studying books].

Allah the Most High teaches without means, just as it happened to Nabi Khidr (Prophet Khidr), peace be upon him. Allah gives knowledge from His presence, and so the servant becomes an arif (knower in the spiritual or inner sense; gnostic) and worships with ihsan (goodness).

The one who reaches this realm can observe the sacred ruhs. He sees Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him. He converses about everything in creation, from the beginning to the end, with him. The other prophets also give him the good tidings of wuslat (reaching union with the Beloved, Allah). When Allah the Most High mentions them, He says:

“Their friendship is so good.” (Nisaa 4:69)

The person who cannot find this ilm (knowledge) within himself cannot be an alim (person of knowledge; scholar), even if he reads a million volumes.

The reward that you acquire by the understanding of zahiri ilms can only take you to paradise. There, only the nur (light) of the divine attributes is manifested.

The alim, with outer knowledge, cannot get into the forbidden, private [holy] quarters. He cannot reach the realm of closeness, because he must be in a state of flying, and to fly you need two wings.

The servant of Allah is the one who works for and with zahiri and batini knowledge, and reaches the realm we are talking about.

Allah the Most High says in a hadith qudsi (holy hadith, wisdom that Allah imparted to the Prophet, peace be upon him, apart from that recorded in the Qur’an):

“O My servant, if you want to be included in my harem (intimate quarters), do not get stuck in mulk (the material world), malakut (the angelic world) or jabarrut (the archangelic world).”

The reason behind this is that alem-i mulk (the material world) is the shaytan (devil) of the alim, alem-i malakut is the shaytan of the arif, and alem-i jabarrut is the shaytan of the one who has attained haqiqa.

Whoever contents himself with one of these will be expelled from the dergah (center; meeting place). This is how it is in the presence of Allah. What I mean is that this person has lost the opportunity to be in closeness to the divine essence; his advancement with respect to degrees has ceased.

The fact is that he had wanted closeness. He cannot reach that realm in this condition because he did not wish for what truly should have been wished for. He has only one wing.

For those who reach the intimacy of Haqq (The True; Allah’s name or attribute Al-Haqq), there are so many rewards that no eyes have seen, no ears have heard, and no human heart has known their names. That is the paradise of nearness. No houris (pure companions for those in Paradise, as mentioned in the Qur’an; heavenly virgins) or kiosks [beautiful buildings] are there.

What a human must do is know where he stands and refrain from claiming for himself what he does not deserve. Hz. Ali says:

“May Allah have mercy on those who know their limits, know how to hold their tongues, and do not waste their lives.”

The above quote is taken from this book:

To arrive at the centre then, to approach a centered presence even when they are offering their permission, is it seems not as simple as it may sound. So the events that appear on Earth are contextualised and any current crisis can at the very least be seen in the light of the light of God, rather than the smoke and mirrors of dynasty, conspiracy, reign and wealth.

Getting “stuck” is identified as a problem even in this 12th century text, so my definitions of stuck-addiction are in line with the help that was offered to people in the past, simply brought into the language of today to look at getting the best possible meanings of the words.

It seems as ever though that becoming unstuck is impossible without God’s help.

Knowing for themselves what a person cannot claim that they deserve is directly joined with their accepting from God that which they do deserve.

If this matter of deserving can ever be transmitted into the awareness of Mankind, it is the very history of religions, their dramas, saints and scoundrels. It is the history of the power of One Love as met in the history of Mankind and its mortal combat with itself to become Humankind.

The prayer of the mu’min given by Al Mu’min is, “O God, I seek refuge in You, from You.”

Where God is the helper anything is possible.
(Bülent Rauf)

Spiritual leadership in the 21st century.

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 consensual aim, 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.

Spiritual leadership involves an arcane transmission of sorts, a grace from Source powerful enough to initiate an awakening in and of consciousness in a person. This awakening is not physical, for clearly the person is corporeally awake, as are you now. The awakening is metaphysical and just as stark for a person who is metaphysically awake as is the difference for them between their physical sleeping and waking states.

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.

This vehicle I have written about these past seven years in these blogs, this vehicle of the 12 Step Programme.

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”.

This proxy-consciousness is the deadness that the Christ Jesus talked about when he said, “let the dead bury their own dead.”

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?

I’m driving my taxi for many reasons, one of which is because it’s been the only way so far, to have met the many, many people that God has had me meet to converse about the prevailing conditions on Earth, for if I had tried to strategise a way to have met them I would never have been granted access.

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.

…. good news

“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.

The world is going through its fire today because of misplaced money and the lack of a unified response to the 25 people on Earth who have as much wealth as half of the world’s population.

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.

Only the usually hidden individuals who are always present in a living “Union” with God now stand as the bulwarks to be able to have any chance of averting the calamity facing Mankind today.

“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 constant battle to deflect questions away from the truth of a situation by leaders who think that this is the required behaviour of a successful politician or corporate business person, this behaviour is sick and it spreads sickness.

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.

This disconnect, this disrepair is where I started in 2013 with a message of physical repair and metaphysical reconnect. This work is now clear. The difference between universal simple feelings and personal complex emotions has been restored.

(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/)

I am open to the material and spiritual requirements of these days as surely as my blogs bear my witness. I remain cheerful and optimistic for myself and clear in my willingness to further serve people in my occupations. Yet the Sufi is ever the pragmatist, there is a reason that “poverty” drives me to work, it is in the dignity of the very word itself, a word describing the state of many of my beloved forebears.

There are, as always, people living on Earth today in a state of tawhid, those in the attainment of spiritual Union. The challenge, as always, is to see if the United can be brought into a viable contact with the disunited, without the historically murderous story lines of those previously recorded contacts simply repeating …. with no blame …. we’ll see 😉

Priorities

It is said on The Way that “Man proposes and God disposes”.

For me as ‘Abd al-Mu’min this is the living reality of my experience. There is a hadith that says that God fits into the heart of the believing servant.

So, as life poses problems for me, there is a constant flow of possible proposals for me to manifest as a consequence of engaging with life.

These arising proposals are at every level and aspect of my being without exception and with a total unconditional regard. These proposals encompass my physical/mental/spiritual presence and are led only by my certainty of union and conscious contact with God as the experiential fact of my life.

This fact of my conscious contact with God is unassailable but is testable from moment to moment in terms of my inner experience and my manifestation of mental activity and physical action. This fact is embodied in Step 11 of a 12 Step Programme.

“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.”

Thankfully God disposes of His presence in my heart and the extreme limits of my awareness are held in a function of peace and relative possibility so as to make my service possible and bearable, not only for me but also for those to whom I am brought into contact.

This post then contextualises the years of writing that is patently embracing of a message of messianic proportions, but without having to join the queues of disintegrated messianic function that presents itself for treatment in the psychiatric offices of the global health care systems on a daily basis.

My exterior function is integrated in that prayer of Muhammad (pbuh), “O God, I seek refuge in You, from You.”

I am open to any rôle that is possible for me to manifest for God in His/Her/Its creation. I do not crave any particular rôle however, even though the reality of my presence connects the highest with the lowest as may be generally understood by Mankind.

There is not much more for me to say about me personally or explicitly that can expose any further the implicit message that my writings have conveyed over these past few years. The reader can take what suits them and leave what does not, without worry that there is anything to be missed that may be somehow needed.

Events in this physical world on Earth are not what they immediately appear to be, especially at this time of juncture between eras. My posts and communications will attempt to convey the strength and hope that is the antidote to my personal experience, the reality of the protection granted to me by my being who I am.

For you to be able to come to believe in your own Higher Power is the only reason for my writing.

Thus although my writing and talking exposes myself to a scrutiny that is utterly unnecessary for my certainty of and service toward One Love in action that is Life Itself, yet as a catalyst it may be utterly necessary for you to have read or heard it, if your belief in yourself is to become reconnected with what you know of yourself.

“Man proposes, God disposes.”

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.

War as mass psychosis

The Name is Al Mu’min ….

(From The Mishkat al-Anwar of Ibn Arabi translated by Stephen Hirtenstein and Martin Notcutt ISBN 0-9534513-5-6)

Thanks to Azim Looker …. for

A chunk of quote … from J.G.Bennett.

“War has a twofold origin. The first is outside of man and arises independently. The second is within man and is due to his own weakness and failure. From time to time a special state of tension arises on the earth, which Gurdjieff calls the state of “Solioonensius.” This state of tension arises from the relations between the planets. I do not mean by this that it is something supernatural or mysterious. It is a perfectly natural process, connected with the changes in the balance of electrical and other energy in the solar system. For example, it is already suspected by science that the occurrence of sunspots has an effect upon the human psyche.

It may help you to understand what I mean by calling Solioonensius a perfectly natural process if you consider a simple phenomenon, well-known to all. I refer to the effect in Great Britain of the east wind, or in the Mediterranean of the sirocco. When the east wind blows, people become irritable and nothing seems to go right. I once became interested in this because I wanted to see whether it was a real or an imaginary effect. I asked a number of people to observe carefully and let me know as objectively as possible whether they could detect a state of inner tension caused by the east wind. Nearly everyone confirmed that a state of irritability did, in fact, arise in them even before they were aware that the east wind was blowing.

In a more subtle and pervasive manner, great regions of the earth’s surface, and sometimes even the whole of the earth, become subject to a state of tension that produces in people a strong sense of dissatisfaction with their conditions of life. They become irritable or aggressive, apprehensive, nervous and highly suggestible. Gurdjieff said that knowledge of Solioonensius existed thousands of years ago, and that he took the term from a very ancient tradition. At the present time, its significance has been forgotten or lost.

The point is that there are two completely different ways in which people can react to a state of Solioonensius. It always arouses dissatisfaction, but this may be external or internal. External dissatisfaction leads to external conflict; internal dissatisfaction strengthens the desire to struggle with oneself. Those who understand the necessity for working on themselves and achieving the second destiny find in that state of tension the greatest possibility of incentive and force to make them work harder. But those who do not have this feeling, this realization, project outwards their dissatisfaction and become hostile and angry with other people-suspicious, jealous and the rest of it- and then, defenceless against these mass psychoses, begin to hate. And the very people who, only a few years before, could not conceive of themselves consenting to the idea of war become involved in the destruction of other people. And those other people, passing through the same mass psychosis with the same justification, wish in turn to destroy their existence.

It is possible by careful study of history and of various psychological processes to verify this. And once you understand it, you will see that there is no way by which war can be stopped other than by making people understand the necessity for this work. Otherwise, they have no defense against this state of tension; no contrivances, no organisation, no good resolutions can avail, because there is a physio-chemical process involved. This state of tension must produce the result. We do not know when such a state of tension will come over the world again. When it is absent, we do not feel war as something possible, but when it approaches, nothing can be done unless an idea can come into the world that can act on a sufficiently large number of people to enable them to turn this force in a different direction.

This is one reason why the change – the transition period – from one epoch to another, from one world to another, is a dangerous period. Old ideas have lost their momentum and can no longer move the world. New ideas have not yet gained momentum. All through history, and even before the beginning of history, we find such periods accompanied by war and revolution, not because war and revolution are inevitable in themselves but because people have lacked that discrimination that would enable them to use this situation rightly. If we are able to go into a world in which this is understood, then the course of history can be different, because the destiny of all mankind can be raised to a higher level. There is no higher purpose in the life of man than to bring about this great transition.

If a new world is to come, we must first create it in ourselves. You may ask how the work of a few people can change the world. It has always been so. Ideas are powerful, not organizations. Nothing can be done by outward force; everything can be done by inner strength.’

The descended sacredness of the disease of stuck-addiction is that eventually, after much practice in the wastelands of denial, the individual inner warrior does give his or her own death day “consciously and unequivocally” back to The Living Source that granted them their birthday – or they actually die.

https://lifeisreturning.com/2020/08/28/the-sphere/

Once this has “actually” been done rather than theoretically imagined, an awakening begins.

If this releasing of the physical death day is not achieved, then the death day is held by the piratical system that grips the Earth and all its species, especially Mankind, in its status quo of threat and counter threat.

There is the gift that this transmitted vehicle gives to all Mankind, for most of Mankind is held in subservience by forces that overtly or covertly threaten people with physical or reputational death.

This is ouranosmetry meeting geometry, this is how to prepare the personal alchemical vehicle to achieve the metaphysical instruction of Islam which is to “die before you die”, without getting lost in the terrorist dangers of physical misunderstanding.

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.
