Comforting habits are on hold -security is threatened

We are all habitual by nature, they help strengthen our sense of security -so what happens when routines are prevented from happening?

Here we are in week 10 of the lockdown -and still some weeks to go! The number 10 is known as a symbol of the authority of God and his government on this Earth, the symbol of responsibility, law and completeness. It is also regarded as a karmic number -payback time!

By and large people are creatures of habit. Routines with highlights, activities promoting new relationships, absorbing into character whatever legal, political, and social changes as the years unfold. It comes as no surprise during this lockdown the loners have managed to retain their habits better than most. The majority is doing its best to prevent head spinning, depression, and sometimes anger. You are no doubt aware some people are breaking and bending the lockdown rules and will have views about that. We are not all related by our habits -the habit of our character is uniquely born of various sources, not only the example of parents, elders, influential friends, dislikes and likes, also work and social influences. You could call it a brew that never comes the boil, subtlety changing 24-7.

In essence it is the practise of our personality self-seeking self-awareness.

And there’s the rub, as Shakespeare might say, because our personalities are ‘man-made’ self-expressions born with the instinct to survive, propagate and stimulate conflict to make or break. The irony of our present situation is our habitual natures normally maintained to provide personal security of Self has been upended by a security imposed upon us.

And whilst you might say -for good reason, it is having traumatic effects. Mentally and emotionally many are feeling insecure and fearful of the future. There are rumblings about the emergency powers having political emphases in tomorrow’s world. Track and trace, wholesale vaccinations, the stay save messaging mantras are for some advent of mind control, the shadow of George Orwell’s Big Brother.

Of course, you might not think the present powers are so Machiavellian in character and take the view that some people will always think the worse and see the dark side, but something is happening to cause a sense of insecurity to dominate peoples thoughts. The lockdown will end -be sure about that; governments intent is sooner rather than later; their survival depends on it. I suggest the colour of the political landscape is not prime cause of your feelings of insecurity, rather it is what’s happening in your own street, with family and friends.

Job security has for some time been largely contractually based and we are learning to live with that, but now with businesses large and small going to the wall, futures for many is becoming more and more uncertain. The ‘office’ world will never be the same again. Working from home most days demands less space to lease or rent -phone and computing demands will grow exponentially; new skills will need to be learnt. Personal relationships will be under new kinds of pressures. Taxation will rise -money has to come from somewhere to pay national debts and support changing economies.

The irony I mentioned earlier is even more profound when you realise the instrumental nature of life, essential for continuing propagation and soul development by its very nature demands insecurity to function! Intuition is not a rational process! Man has never been good at recognising this, and still doesn’t acknowledge the essential benefits have come from the few who have opened their minds beyond the personality’s borders.

Can we truly learn from the number 10? Hope springs eternal….

            My thanks to replies I receive -and everyone I reply too. Email this week is only later as I’ve had other ‘jobs’ to do! The intention to recover and make a better world is a theme most often central to emails I receive. My poem for you today is about the conflict between the rational man ( the stone man) and his higher counterpart. Stay healthy and you will stay safe. As always I include a link for the self-healing recording, feel free to pass it around to whomever you wish. https://www.holistichealthuk.co.uk/guided_self_healing_cd.php

Song of the Sea

Beyond the Stone Man lives a psychic sea
wherein thespian arts are founded,
on the whisperings of immortality.

Earth genius, maker of machinery
hear before claiming, my invocation
beyond the Stone Man lives a psychic sea,

thesaurus more precious than history,
an interlocking alien kingdom:
the whisperings of immortality.

Stone Man, creator of insanity
repeat after me this incantation,
beyond the Stone Man lives a psychic sea,

where sceptres and crowns were facsimile
long before Archimedes heard in song,
the whisperings of immortality.

Knights and Bishops, guardians of the Tree,
Knowledge, and Faith, have you now forgotten
beyond the Stone Man lives a psychic sea,

of mistakes made in your liturgy
by making your God of wisdom, to wrong
the whisperings of immortality?

I wait the last act of this tragedy

powerless to prevent consummation.
Beyond the Stone Man lives a psychic sea

where his soul sits under the Bodhi tree
ever present awaiting earthly union,
to share the whisperings of immortality.
