Nowhere to Hide

I have been doing some light listening in the car – bell hooks, and it is excellent. I am MAWP so I am part of the imperialist white supremacist patriarchal system that she continually questions. When you listen to her you have to question what you are doing about race, and I have been complacent about that. Partly that complacency stems from living with black women who looked to me for knowledge on the struggles of black people, partly that complacency comes from things like the Young Journal, partly that complacency comes from learning from Ndeh and Omwody, and partly that complacency comes from being MAWP and knowing that whenever I want I can hide from the results of MAWPs. I can hide within the very imperialist white supremacist patriarchal system I hate. I have no skin that prevents me from hiding.

I compare bell with how I felt about Krishnamurti. When I was about 30 I spent a few years attending the Krishnamurti gatherings at Brockwood park. At that time I was focussed on spirituality trying to come to terms with my understanding, and I would listen as he would say empty your contents of consciousness. I would internally scream at him that I am trying to come to terms with understanding and yet you tell me empty. It was a permanent spiritual revolution, and needed.

Listening to bell is a permanent societal revolution, everything has to be questioned because it is imperialist white supremacist patriarchal. As a MAWP I am not going to have conflict because it is MAWPs who are the problem – apart from the 1% of which MAWPs are their foremen.

It is the state of permanent revolution which is the end of addiction to self Ch 22, it is permanent revolution that ends conditioning, it is permanent revolution that is the practice of Ch 23, and it is permanent revolution that is the pathtivism that I put forward in Ch 24:-

Listening to bell is comfortable because it unhinges any attachment I might have. If I am not agreeing with her – maybe thinking she goes too far, I can stop myself and say that is addiction to conditioning – and let it go.

She makes me evaluate class. That in itself is a good thing. Class is Marxist and therefore MAWP no matter how much socialists argue – ask Russell Means about Europeans. But at the same time the 99% are exploited and provided Gaia is happy somehow working for Unity against the 1% has to underpin the permanent non-violent revolution – unless it becomes legitimately violent and that is very very unlikely as realistically there will never be that level of consciousness amongst the 99%. Working with black comrades in a state of permanent revolution means constant deep listening as each new turn shows how MAWP I am, and how unintentionally I perpetuate the imperialist white supremacist patriarchal system simply by having the conditioning. This deep listening is of course completely liberating no matter how much my ego screams that I have much to offer.

I should think seriously about how to add permanent revolution to the practice of the Treatise. Will I wait and see if Holybooks comes through?

I know bell is Buddhist but she talks much of desire – and there was self esteem that I questioned. I have mixed reactions to her occasional focus on black women fulfilling their sexual desire. On the one hand it is a celebration of self-realisation but on the other it is indulging desire, and attachment to desire is addiction to self – and is therefore not following the path. Following the path is permanent revolution but most don’t have the awareness to follow the path; such celebration of self-realisation is an intermediary step.
