Everyday, humanity is inundated with images and messages that tell us; that we are inadequate, insufficient, unlovable and stupid. We perpetuate this sad state of affairs through individual and collective invalidation. I could write a clever article and diminish the spark of life and uniqueness and call it, ‘What is fracking wrong with Lord Brown?’ Nonetheless, to do so, I would take up a train-spot into another delusion.
As an emerging global culture we have become masterful at disconnecting and dividing life into wishful projections for preferences, visible in cancerous justifications and outcomes. We have been educated and conditioned for ‘mental and emotional’ toughness and devise what we assume are clever strategies to compete for survival, specialness, and belonging.
This individual and collective systemic invalidation are continuously reinforced through the many fixed ideas and concepts visible in our current social structures that we have presumed as maps of knowledge.
WHAT IS WRONG WITH US?
Is it possible we are collectively suffering from the decease of disconnection – ‘Schismatic Collective Narcissism?’ This decease is easily seen as we can simply train-spot the wholeness we are that has become forgotten.
When ‘Schismatic Collective Narcissism’ occur individual and collective numbness and fixation of being separate ensues, as the Holy Grail ‘The Heart’, and connected circuitry of individual and collective meridians progressively shut down.
This decease is now apparent all around, and most noticeable and prevalent in our institutions of government, industry, law, and education. Sadly our spiritual institutions are not exempt. An endless empty hole our institutions and their executive governance have become.
These institutions demand our obedience and attention, and they inflate their authority to procure their perceived entitlement, specialness and collective respect and adoration. These ‘institutions of strategic industry’ and their governance cause so much harm to our self in the other.
THIS MALADY IN PSYCHOTHERAPY
In psychotherapy there are several distinct diagnosis for this malady that is now upon us, and if you think and feel yourself exempt from this decease, you have rendered yourself incapacitated for constructive connections, collaboration and community. You are delusional if you assume you can now escape your own self and collective predicament.
‘SCHISMATIC COLLECTIVE NARCISSISM’ IS FUELED BY THE CHARMS AND AMBITION OF ‘COLD EMPATHY.’
Our culture has become a natural breeding ground for ‘cold empathy’ and the below pathologies. In individuals ‘cold empathy ‘ is best demonstrated through the visible disconnection in sensitive intuitives, and they are more and more common; such as psychopathy, border-liner, and narcissism disorders.
These disorders have ‘mapped out moods and emotion for effect,’ and have no or minimal ability for empathic emotional arousal, resonance and recognition! In ‘cold empathy’ people become instruments for self ‘fixation’ and gratification, their ideas of altruism included. Anyone or anything in their path, simply becomes, a means to satisfy their end objective, which is to command control, attention and power.
Cold empathy ’individuals and institutions’ are actually more equipped for survival, today, than ’individuals and institutions’ that models and acts from innate warm empathy.
Niccolò di Bernardo dei Machiavelli was an Italian historian, politician, diplomat, philosopher, humanist and writer based in Florence during the Renaissance.
His first book that was published, after his death, in 1553 called ‘The Prince.’ The Prince perfectly mirrors Plato’s sentiment ‘The day of shadow when life is not trusted.’ This book has been, and still is the basic operating manual for any aspiring politician and master of industry. The drives, practices and applications in this book are the rock and foundation un-mistakenly adhered to for centuries through governance and education. ‘Make no mistake about it’! Below are some excepts from Machiavelli:
No enterprise is more likely to succeed than one concealed from the enemy until it is ripe for execution.
Entrepreneurs are simply those who understand that there is little difference between obstacle and opportunity and are able to turn both to their advantage.
Men are so simple and so much inclined to obey immediate needs that a deceiver will never lack victims for his deceptions.
If an injury has to be done to a man it should be so severe that his vengeance need not be feared.
Politics have no relation to morals
It is much more secure to be feared than to be loved.
There is nothing more difficult to take in hand, more perilous to conduct, or more uncertain in its success, than to take the lead in the introduction of a new order of things.
Men rise from one ambition to another: first, they seek to secure themselves against attack, and then they attack others.
There is no avoiding war; it can only be postponed to the advantage of others.
Of mankind we may say in general they are fickle, hypocritical, and greedy of gain.
Men are so simple and yield so readily to the desires of the moment that he who will trick will always find another who will suffer to be tricked.
Princes and governments are far more dangerous than other elements within society.
Men ought either to be indulged or utterly destroyed, for if you merely offend them they take vengeance, but if you injure them greatly they are unable to retaliate, so that the injury done to a man ought to be such that vengeance cannot be feared.
The promise given was a necessity of the past: the word broken is a necessity of the present.
Whoever conquers a free town and does not demolish it commits a great error and may expect to be ruined himself.
THE POSSIBLE EXTINCTION OF ‘WARM EMPATHY.’
‘Warm empathy’ have an ability to have immediate access to the meridians, in flux & flow, in the zero point field (connecting to perceived other), nonetheless; often the ‘the thinking and feeling’ mind will rationalize the immediate instant feedback away, and make justification for ‘lack of action’ for other.
We have created a culture where we distrust innate ‘warm empathy’ and it has become culturally acceptable to divert to ‘cold empathy,’ i.e; I will assess and qualify your apparent and immediate need, as I have to qualify and justify if I am actually doing the right thing, through a process of in-tuned & attuned assessment. A process that necessitates an intimate and responsive attunement that we are not even mature enough to due for ourselves, yet we assume we are perfectly equipped to do it for others!
WINK, TEXAS, THE TOWN THAT IS BEING SWALLOWED BY A GIANT SINKHOLE.
Let me welcome you in to visit Wink Texas, the town that is being swallowed by a sinkhole. The current ‘for profit’ fracking champion there is devouring Bayou Corne faster than an angry gator.
If you want one of these volatile and explosive phenomena in your community, just turn an empty salt dome into a gas storage facility, pump that sucker up and then release the pressure.
CONVENIENT ABDICATION & ABSOLVENCY
When we conveniently chose to abdicate responsiveness to immediate and apparent suffering, we have forgotten the basic human tenant ‘to do no harm.’ If ‘The Lordy’ Lord Brown, can’t do this for himself, we must ‘ever so gently’ give him a little bit of our loving nudge collectively and do this form him. ‘The Lordy’s of industry have thoroughly convinced themselves they have an entitlement to the land that is ‘above the law of the united people.’
NATURE VS. LORDY LORDS!
Rarely do an animal need to confer with a concept of self before it express, acts and engages! Humans, however, edit who they are for effect to fit and position themselves in a story of self and others.
When the constructs that enforces the fixation of identity is seen, the many layers of conventional ways of being are gradually being dropped in attunement to Nature, as in a responsive engagement to life arising.
I propose that Lord Brown, the billionaire chairman for the Caudrilla corporation is suffering from a mental disorder that has affected us all, as I see little evidence of the contrary all around.
‘Schismatic Collective Narcissism;’ is a predatorial decease that is opportunistic and disconnected at core of its nature. This decease, charms, sniffs out, and preys on any perceived weakness in the perceived other, for both personal and collective profit gain, at a great and immeasurable ecological cost, affecting one and all!
This corporate fracking giant, Lord Brown and his Caudrilla, most likely will attempt to downplay the extent of future and generational damage his corporate action will cause to this beautiful area of Balcombe, Sussex UK .
Lord Brown has already justified his actions, as his social media team has manufactured untruths to the larger general public that the majority of the citizens of Balcomb are not opposed. This, now apparent, decease willfully disseminates untruths, as it intentional has reduced and diminished the majority of Balcomb into a by gone minority.
This is nothing but a blatant and self-righteous corporate take over to cease control of what is not available for the taking, and to sugar up connections and cronies in parliament to do their bidding, favors and pleases.
TEA WITH LORD BROWN
As individuals and a larger collective, we owe a depth of gratitude to Lord Brown. As there are no deficiencies’ in this universe, and no smoke without fire, we would be fools to not recognize our shared decease and predicament!
Life is simply ‘Logos’ in thesis, antithesis and synthesis. As we become intimately responsive, we come face to face with what life is: ‘Nature becomes obvious, when life finally receives itself in form.” Nature is not concerned with positioning itself for affect, with a preference for a specific outcome that is separate or preoccupied with a perception of self or other.
Nature has no fixed self it identifies with. It is neither concerned with evaluating, qualifying, measuring itself or other. Life as in looking and searching for meaning ceases, as it is no longer living in a dominant identity. The mechanism of thinking and feeling in the body/ mind connection is no longer an obstacle, as it no longer reside or rest in ideas of a fixated or fluid self. Do you care to come and visit for some tea Lord Brown?
