I notice I am triggered by the terms 'sustainable healthcare' - I read it as doublespeak in the Orwellian sense. At risk of sounding archaic, the very truth of our being is our true sustenance and the attempt to run 'our own little racket or private agenda' is the false sense of control that actually blocks awareness of our being as love - and therefore our capacity to recognize and relate truly. Sustaining illusions as if their protection is our own, because we have invested in them as our own reality and defend them through hell and high water - even unto death. What are our illusions but our judgements given power and worth-ship as true?
As I see it the intent (indeed the unconscious addiction) to using the mind and the body lovelessly has individual and collective result in toxicity, malnutrition and disease - at all levels of our being and of its expression as culture in society. Addictive identity investment - which is a form of dissociation - grows from a failure, refusal or unreadiness to face or own psychic-emotional - or relational - conflicts. Something 'else' is invoked, imagined and substituted for what our mind is thus predicated NOT to see. One facet of embracing dissonance in a deeper honesty, willingness and curiosity of being, is of growing the capacity or consciousness by which to notice or observe our own thoughts, emotional responses, and actions, as an awakened responsibility of embrace - instead of the self-evasive reaction in blame, shame or judgement.
Discernment is of a different order because discernment is a result of embrace, where judgement operates upon life or self or other AS IF from outside or apart from life self or other. THIS is using the mind lovelessly, because this is a form of denial or self, life and other for the sake of a 'getting' or lack driven compulsive and coercive sense of separateness seeking its own resolution, completion or fulfilment OUTSIDE itself - in attempt to manipulate or change the conditions rather than of releasing conditioned reaction to listen, and align in a true receptive that naturally extends of a wholeness of being - rather than a lack or fear-driven attempt to control in the gesture of a self-protective survival response to a threat that is projected into life from its own denied and unhealed past.
What I attempt to sketch is foundational to our nature as love - and as broken or violated and betrayed love, the latter of which is a human conditioning to which we are most deeply fitted or adapted and defend against illumination or exposure regardless its evils - because we have deeper fear - indeed terror or horror set in refusal to ever allow its reliving that holds the line against the Unthinkable - despite the demand for sacrifice such a 'self defence' demands.
For the cost of even a necessary lie is always truth, and the multiplying of lies, debts or toxicity corrupts or in a sense aborts any new movement of life, of love and of being to serve the lie or be denied or withheld light, voice or acknowledgement.
Regardless our masking or mitigating good intentions, or reframing in terms of evils that make the 'war on something' a seeming source of moral integrity, that becomes coercive and tyrannical as mandatory or regulatory compulsion, or monopolised and systemic capture.
A loveless system substitutes for and replaces and usurps the heart. The 'science' of a loveless technologism works the undermining, overriding and replacement of living relational being which is a wholeness-in-movement, to a sense of logical controls based upon conflicted and conflicting predicates. Literally knowing not what it does because its operatives know not who they are.
“Everything is BACKWARDS; everything is upside down! Doctors destroy health, Lawyers destroy justice, Universities destroy knowledge, Governments destroy freedom, Major media destroys information, And religions destroy spirituality". Michael Ellner
I use this quote often, because it points to the reversal in our predicates or core beliefs and presumptions. Nothing else COULD arise from reversing due cause and effect.
The assigning of causality to effects is the denial of true cause and its substitution or usurpation by a mind and world of lies believed and defended true - and therefore necessary to learn and adapt to - as part of human participation.
Love is made weak and ineffectual by equating it with doing - as the action of a personal capacity of goodness, kindness or fairness in terms of socially accepted FORMS of behaviours that are then masked in or mimicked as a presentation of social correctness or freedom from attack - because once love is split into forms of 'should and ought to', we are under the attack of a doublethink or self-contradictory narrative coercion - that makes a god of blind structures and rules to which Man is then fitted, conformed and indeed sacrificed.
Love is the capacity to rise ever anew, and guilt, fear and division, the obstacle to its true receipt and natural extension. The willingness for the 'renewing of our minds' has to be vigilant against the deceits that fear and guilt mask in as seeming goodness, kindness or fairness - from our peace. It always only has to be some willingness - or even a little willingness, given now, in place of a faithlessness to self, each other and world.
I am sure that Rob and ANH walk the line of seeking to find language that has 'traction or currency' in the system. Of course we have to work with the current or active belief system - but our relationship is our active communication or we become subverted to support and extend ways of avoiding relationship and communication and honourable or true outcomes, under the oppositional identity.
Let our true identity be revealed anew in its extension TO the true in others - rather than asserting or defending a polarised reinforcement to our mutually conflicted entanglements - whose nature is denial, dissociation and displacement.
Responsibility is NOT blame but freedom. Releasing what we never could 'control' nor are truly responsible for, is the opening to what we are not only a 'response ability' but a natural alignment within the creative. Within being.
Being with, being moved, being and sharing the qualities of life is not well served by a mind of control that is by its own self definition, apart from, set over and isolated. The inhibition of misdirected or loveless communication is needed, but so is the disinhibition of love - even though this is where our deeper sense of threat is associated. 'Coming Out' as love is actually a yielding or releasing of private identity assertion to a movement that we may be one with but not in claim of possession or control over. Love sustains all that is true in me - and guides and supports the revision and recognition of the true that confused itself within the false.
How does that relate to sustaining a sickness care system? Not a lot! But the awakening of a true and free responsibility is the foundation without which sickness is merely redistributed, just as demons and evils were reframed to diagnosis of [insert Latin nomenclature here]. We can only work with our current ignorances in a willingness to notice and undo them as we find freedom to live this. So seeking for freedom somewhere else is not a valid path even if it can be reliably sustained as a global economy - at cost of course of freedom.
Confucious - asked what would he do if in the seat of power - replied "I would redeem the dictionary". This may not be the best translated sense of his meaning but what we accept and assign meaning to, frames our narrative continuity or identity, our perceptions and reactions or range of choices, and our conditioned acceptance and suffering of it all as real. This is the blueprint or template level of our experience of our world; the word or definition, believed and reacted from as true.
