The ever more futile a tempt of imposing coercive will

iai with a talk on the changing world of intelligence services and threats to security.

My comment:

NOtional security operates according to what and who defines 'self interest' and therefore 'self'. One cannot but in fantasy presume an 'innocent' or neutral self independent of the feedback that the perceptions and actions of other with whom we are in relationship. For there are many historical and current institutional and corporate actions operating under the aegis of British, Western, or other alliance of projected power and commercial interest - that engender enmity, rivalry and opposing reaction.

Much of what constitutes trade, aid and financial support, has an private agenda of exploitative dominion over others. Indeed much of 'Western narrative' operates as a schismed mentality of 'democracy and freedom' that can seem to exist for a few because so much of the resource of others is usurped and extracted in unequal relation.

The war of powers, has operated as a 'shadow government' throughout history and the civilized and civilizing influence has grown within such a mentality as both the opening of a greater conscious perspective - and the subversion of such perspective to the ruling establishment or a revolutionary change of guard of a new establishment.

Ignorance is a state of wishful and manipulated fantasy relative to our relationship and self definition within that relationship. The most subtle and dangerous 'enemy' is that which manipulates the mind - our mind - in such a way as to usurp sovereignty of will - and therefore the sovereignty of national and international integrity.
One of the ways that such a deception operates is to re-frame self-definition over and against (real or imagined or contrived) threats of loss and violation in such a way as to self-justify acts of war at the level of communication itself.

Communication forms that are weaponised are propaganda or 'public relations'. This war of corporate and government intent upon populations is an insanity - yet is carried on as if it were in our national interest - not least because the 'rationalized' mechanisms of manipulation that have usurped true governance and commerce and communication have given rise to the conditioning and perception-belief of a population that cannot be trusted to act in its own best interests. This is the basic mindset of the 'ruling elite' model of a kind of fascism that imposes its mind upon its people as an underclass who are to be subject to every kind of surveillance and penalty for acting out of alignment with the imposed will.

But the new model is much more complex than before - with the operating of a kind of virtual pseudo society in which people can appear to be free, to dream and to dress up in all sorts of identities - as long as it does not leak into the actual power agenda of the establishment - which can use any or every kind of politic as long as it controls the money supply, the media and the technology of surveillance and suppression - whether in the public or private or imported sector.

The intelligence that I feel to invite into a mind of ignorant but fearful and passionately held conditioned reaction is that of restoring Consciousness as the framework or context of observation - instead of running from conditioned mentalities that 'already know or are certain' as to who and what they are and thus how and why they must act in ways that are not serving their or our interests truly.

The search for intelligence is the condition of believing one does not already have it - and must go 'outside' to get it. This is a picture of a confidence trick or identity scam. Evidences from the 'outside' world  must be truly discerned in consciousness - indeed to open honesty as to the nature of our perceptions themselves.

As out technological science gets smarter, we tend to collapse into a dumber and dumber model - where 'rationality' must 'lord it' over a dumb, irrational and therefore dangerous consciousness or population. Everything that is invested in such coercive mentality is withdrawn from that which grows trust as an extension of integrity in an honesty and congruency of thought word and deed.

To self honesty - nothing is hidden or withheld the simple asking desire to know. But to a self-secret fearful and coercive agenda, nothing stands obvious and clear but that everything is redefined to centre and revolve around a fearful and conflicted self of struggle and uncertainty. Such a mentality of disconnection from reality - from its   direct appreciation of its consciousness experience - generates a massively convoluted defence system that actually replicates and protects the very thing it is supposed to protect or deliver us FROM - but in ways that seem to distribute the guilt and pain away from self onto others.

But guilt, fear and pain CAN be healed, dissolved, undone as a point and focus of experience and conditioning. Where there is a true willingness there is a way. But this way must put down the wilfulness of fearful thought and reaction enough to allow Intelligence to come in! To persist in a self-fulfilling futility is not intelligent no matter how much genuine endeavour is focused there. One has to be willing not to know, in order to be restored to the framework of a true relation in which to discern THIS step. This has to become a way of life and not just an emergency call. To listen within our own Consciousness while acting within the world.

The result of Consciousness awakening to its true nature is of regaining a guidance and purpose that integrate consciousness rather than dis-integrate to segregated conflicting parts. It IS time for what was hidden to reveal itself so as to realign with the capacity to make a true choice - rather than persist in an illusory freedom whose choices all support a coercive sense of existence.

Integrity and insanity

This writing today was gladly shared with a willingness to ask. (From a comment thread here)

Dave said:
I hear you Binra. Your last word was integrity. Can we start there? If some have none of it, what do you suppose I owe them? Do I owe them communication at the very least? Isn't communication a two way street, listening as well as conveying? And what of sanity? Who should define it?

Can you see that human consciousness and indeed human communication operates a masked world - which includes the mimicking or the attempt to make an 'integrity' of a mask?
That in the world we become so confused in our identity that we often have reacted from the mask as if it were our true word and reacted to another's mask as if it were their true word?

So listening with discernment has to begin from a place that is itself awake or of a willingness that is open to the promptings and noticings of That in us which is of an integrated and integral awareness; of that which IS communication, rather than an attempt to DO or coerce communication to fit our filters of demand or expectation.

In some sense we all construct a self for ourself out of our predilections, our upbringing, and an ongoing adjustment to the world as we experience it - and if we become 'well adjusted' we can live what Socrates called the 'unquestioned life'; a surface that never gives way to reveal a depth.

So it will often be those who have in some sense been broken, or passed through change in which their sense of self - sanity and world - perception is fundamentally challenged. For those who successfully mask their true presence behind a mentality that convinces them that everything is as they believe it is are acting out a script of which they are unaware.

What do you owe your self - or indeed your Self? This is the key to integrity. If you honour, accept and appreciate the gift of life - that gives you your self and includes your experience, then you live out from that integral, integrated sense of congruency.
If you cheat or deny or undermine yourself then you engage with thought and act that dis-integrates you and gives a disconnected and struggling sense of self - in an experience that doesn't feel like a communicating flow of events but a problem to be solved in order to get your life back.
An interior awareness allows choice where otherwise is only reaction that operates as if it were free.

Those who act or communicate without integrity can serve you in many ways - but only if first your serve your self - with integrity. It is not for me or you to live another's life or make their decisions and give them our meanings - and the urge to do this rises from the sense of denial of one's own deeper responsibility.

I notice that when I am aligned in my being, I do not need others to fit into my 'plan' or scheme and can thus listen receptively and discern better as to how to respond or indeed whether to overtly respond. Giving as I would receive is the basis of liberty - for if I would imprison you in concept, how can I know myself free?
However, I do not have to associate with or agree with or join with that which feels it has no belonging in my own integrity of relation and indeed must exercise self-love in refusing to engage in that which is both meaningless and undermining of integrity to give energy and attention to.

I notice when I allow or inadvertently choose awry from my integrity, that the world and even my loved ones, immediately reflect back a lack of worth - and the disposition to see 'what is wrong' with the other, or the world, works as a kind of confused or reactive attempt to mitigate a conflicted sense of myself - that I have taken seriously and locked down on.

This answer is not perhaps what you expect or sought, because I am calling attention to your relation within your self - as it corresponds with whatever is going on and whoever your are with.

Communication in its fullest meaning is never really interrupted, and is always in a sense available to a willingness. You can use this to see that there is always another perspective - another way of looking at  - anything. The way we choose to see anything and the experience it brings us, will be uncovered as a freedom to give - if we loosen our own self-certainties enough to rewaken an innocent curiosity.

What you give is up to you. Absolutely up to you. There are all kinds of rules for thought and behaviour, but those which resonate and reflect your innate integrity will bring you to the trust in your own core vibrational knowing. While we fear our own deceptions we cannot unselfconsciously trust the full flow of our desire - yet exactly that is our joy in life - our freedom to be what we are rather than to struggle in what we are not.

Just as those who love each other do not interrupt its flow to stop and ask the mind "what is love?" - so is it that those who become aware of insanity are those who recognize in some sense they have lost it - or lost awareness and integration of it. We get in the way of our own light - and then lock down by blaming this block as our 'self'.

Yet even a mask of a self has to copy, mimic or pass off as something that is already true. If love were not already true where would rise an attempt to fake it or make it or even deny it real?
Once we have defined our self without integrity - we seek it as if we do not have it. We try to integrate our mind such as we now feel split off and threatened, but do so by rejecting all that we judge against and use judgement as the coercive defence of our own sense of protection and survival - as a separated mind (in a separate body in a world of separate things that exists 'out there' as a sort of dead matter in empty nothingness.

To come back into a true sanity requires we do nothing - not passivity - but do nothing from the reactive or coercive assertion of a dis-integrity. The saying "be still and know' is not about applied rigidity, but an inner relaxation to an uncoercive appreciation. But of course old habits are often deep set, so one's willingness to reintegrate will encounter the 'disintegrities' that work to sabotage or block or distort one's joy - one's essential communication in life. many see these and use them as proof they are unworthy, have failed, cant do it, blah blah blah. But it is up to you (or each of us) which thoughts we listen to and validate.

So what about all these crappy, lacking, faulty, insane, deluded or evil human beings?
It is up to you what you choose to give focus and relevance according to the theme you are exploring. From my heart I feel to bring attention to THAT we are free to choose and give trust to that in the light of a true choice, the choice will be truly made. But don't be deceived by the choices that the mask allows - for it only knows of its own defence. That's what it was for and remains.

I don't communicate to the mask - because it cannot hear. But the living ones who confuse the Life with fearful definitions, are limiting themselves unknowing. One can only communicate with a willingness or as an invitation to willingness. the mask can only transact. There's nothing wrong with a subconscious persona that reinforces and supports your focus and desire. But once programmed with negative association it will seem to 'have a mind of its own'. The more one fights it - the stronger it seems to become. One 'talks' to the subconscious by repetition of persistence and consistency. Align therefore with what you really want (in any given moment) so as to teach yourself what it is you want to learn.

The mind wants to map and control and extract meaning for itself. But in opening to the possibility of inspiration, it is the intuitive sense that resonates with what is relevant as a communication now. It is enough to 'get it' at a level that feels it and then that seed is your own 'knowing' and works in you as you give it welcome and value it. I am in a willingness to be helpful, not because you need it - but because I recognize and embrace my need to extend it.
Without each other there is no fight, nor is there any sharing in Light - in the recognitions that cant be weaponized or marketed (though their forms can be used to mean something else in the dark).

One way of looking at 'end times' is to see it as a Time of Choice. I feel to live in the choice that aligns most clearly with what it is that I am - and this is served by the reflection-experience of what it is I am NOT as well as by uncovering shared purpose in a greater communication than my 'little mind' could even begin to imagine.
How this works out in practice - for each of us - is an unfolding of the themes we are exploring as experience - which is as deep and subtly glorious as one is willing to allow. But this may only be as glimpses until the framework of a coercive mentality is left unused; rendered obsolete through non use. None the less, even a glimpse of a truly sane appreciation, is a life changing event - or rather the releasing of the (insane) attempt to change what Life Is, to a reintegrated Consciousness.

True learning is joyful. Can we start with whatever degree or shred of integrity we can live from - regardless of whatever past we feel defined and limited by? Some will have none of it - and seek to hold us to our past. They will be the ones who allow us to know we have moved on, when we no longer react to their thoughts and acts as anything to do with who and what we are - and if they are willing - we can extend a shared sense of integrity to them in whatever way serves the moment - but not as an attempt to prove we have it. That is how we 'lose' it or mask it.

Everyone can smell a rat - that is to say - can pick up on a coercive intent. We are experts - even children. Likewise everyone can discern integrity - because it resonates one's own.
So why are we fooled except we are distracted from noticing or too invested in our mask to allow it to dissolve? See how the 'world works' and uncover the way the mind works - without using what is revealed as a self-damnation or invalidation. Honesty allows a spontaneous willingness to be curious and thus to simply notice and express without side. In the sense that the world defines it - honesty is impossible - because the world itself operates as a deception. So rather than guarantee a fail in attempting the impossible, embrace all that you are from a fresh perspective.

Your definitions - your word - is what generates your unique experience. But much of this is unconscious to a daily waking mind - but active none the less. It isn't that there is an 'evil' mind in opposition to Life so much as negatively defined and invalidated self which is rejected, excluded and feared. A true communication can unravel a grievance to the core recognition of Life Integrity - but only as willingness allows. The hurt and rage of the human heart is not often felt to be truly received, but often works contagion and recycles over and over, over and over. One does not need to be clever to recognize insanity and desire to be free of it.

Rediscovering a true willingness for Life

Though couched in a reply to a single point in another's posting, this writing points to the heart of much that is operating as 'stuck' or 'war' in our day.

The original context of my post is here. (down in the comments where the Daily Bell posted that "the weakness of socialism is that SOMEONE has to decide how to distribute revenues etc")
- - -

In any relationship of shared or common purpose decisions are to be arrived at. How they are arrived at is a 'freedom' in that we can engage our presence in whatever way we are moved, but that they will be decided is inevitable - because even deciding not to decide is an outcome.
I hold and teach that communication is the honest means for arriving at an outcome and is thus a way of free willingness to participate rather than engage coercive intent that seeks to co-opt or usurp a process of communication with a fixed agenda - or indeed a private agenda.
The 'battle of political identities' works as a fixed template of mutually destructive assertions and invalidations that become a definition for 'stuck'.
The personal identity itself is the level that is being defined in a fixed and negative framework. Hence the 'stuck' is actually the opportunity to become curious of the underlying belief structure of one's personal identity. This of course is the last thing that occurs or attracts the desire to animate and embody such identity - and hence is why many human beings save such learning for their last moments or only when all else has demonstrably failed.
In any relationship, a process of willingness for a communication will result in a perspective from which a step may be taken as an expression of such willingness. It may come from the leader, or the follower, or from or through any agency - but the focus is in the listening for the way of it.
In war, the focus is on blocking and coercing communication because it is seen as a threat to a fixed point of view - which is NOT open to communication.
Despite the collective choice for a mind or war, communication IS occurring but unconsciously and beneath the capacity of a filtered mentality to recognize and accept - and so there is what is actual and there is a perceptual disconnect which is maintained and reinforced via the mechanism of conditioned reaction.
True Authority is that which the human consciousness has defaulted to usurp. But it remains true that if we listen in the heart, with integrity, we uncover information and perspective that serves a reintegrative purpose. But to persist in asserting a self-wilfullness of disconnecting fixed position serves a segregative and disconnecting 'divide and rule' mentality.
The forms that 'divide and rule' can express itself through are legion - but it is not the form that is the meaning - but the mentality of its embodiment.
Form-focussed mentality IS a conditioned program. Discernment feels through such presentations for what is actually communicating. If the form of a communication is masquerading as a relationship, it is not to be engaged with at that level but discernment is called forth as to how best to communicate as an expression of an actual willingness for relationship. If there were 'set rules' as to how to relate, there would be no dance of life, no shared journey of discovery, no revelation of the nature of love - but simply a blind mechanism.
When SOMEONE is given - or assumes power to make decisions as a personal capacity then a deception is engaged in by which Consciousness or true Relations is denied to the playing out of competitive appetite - of a self-specialness pitted against others. In itself this need not be seen as a SIN - but as a habit that once owned, becomes a choice that can be reevaluated in the true context of the moment at hand. But while our 'self-gratifications' are seen as SIN, they are hidden, masked, dressed up in forms of respectability until the society decides sin is simply the natural way of human mechanism and redefines it as honesty.
All the 'isms' are obsolete. Ideology is obsolete. The mentality of coercion is starkly revealed that was always active before but less obvious to those engaged in their identity.
Here at the end of such identity is a stark choice; a mentality of assertive coercive denial or a willingness to listen and in a sense be reintegrated to the Consciousness that is always present beneath the appearances and conditionings which are in a sense our co-creation in absence of a deeper integrity.
For the world we experience is not just 'happening to us' but is filtered and given meanings that we have personally and collectively accepted and DECIDED to make our own.
If a SOMEONE has to make decision as to how to live then let it be arrived at in an honourable way - allowing that we are deeply habituated to fear and cannot abandon our old belief system until we have grown a new one.
The willingness to listen is also the desire that any voice that is denied, rejected or un-heard is allowed to speak and is embraced in a willingness to listen. The miracle is uncovered where the grievance seemed to be - but is not under conscious 'control' of SOMEONE. To feel a way of walking and working together is a living relationship. The attempt to escape this by means of applying mechanical templates is the demand to remain UNCONSCIOUS - in dreams of a SOMEONE who refuses relationship to prefer instead the reflections of their own image-ing.
Everything that has been 'divided' and set against itself is a faceted WHOLE. This appreciation is not withheld us - excepting we each withhold our true presence from our creations - from our thought, belief and definitions - and engage a partiality at the expense of our own wholeness instead of creatively exploring a unique perspective within a wholeness.
The term free market is used and abused like any other symbol. A market of deception may be propagated as 'free to get more without giving true value'. This mentality collectively engaged is effecting planeticide. Disconnecting from Life in order to coerce and exploit it has only one outcome. The idea of a private mentality over and against all else is not a true foundation - even if it can be experienced as if it were reality.

Drip drip poison 'news'

Britain's giant kelp forests could be destroyed within the next 100 years

So much so called 'news' is a deliberate propagating of drip drip poison of negativity - alarmism dressed in scientific clothes that ties in crying wolf with herding people to serve negative agendas. On one level it may be simply presenting drama in the hope of getting attention, selling something like papers, advertising or political agendas arising from the guilt and fear coercions implicit in the idea of 'man-made climate change'.
Another facet is that such 'crying wolf' invalidates one's credibility and capacity to alert others to common needs.
Our relationship with our own consciousness, each other, our living planet has been subverted and corrupted by a negative agenda. A destructive kind of consciousness that is at war within itself, that has no capacity to feel relationship but only 'sees' and coercively pursues what it 'can get out of it'.
I'm all for Primate Change! For a waking up to a deeper, more embracing integrity and dropping the poison of the blame game hate mentality. Love of Life is not fearful and coercive and masked in attempt to seem creditworthy. The 'old mind' does not want to yield to the new, but this is not a war but a way of delaying the inevitable, for everything HAS changed and the old mind no longer serves excepting to illuminate what doe not and can not serve a true appreciation.
Note that the 'mob mind' that blindly lets alarmism dictate is the same mentality blindly reacting against it. To know your own mind is to live on purpose but to accept someone else's thinking or thinking that does not belong to you is to give your power to deceptions of self-division - and to the self-fulfilling prophecies of fear.
