SUFFICETH FOR ALL REALMS
PSYCHOPATHIC DEADLY RUSES
(WETIKO VIRUS ON THE ATTACK*
VIOLENCE OF THE MYSTIC**)
*Paul Levy –
**Anthony de Mello
"Men of Violence".."Prayer is Fire"
“Wetiko,” a Native American word, simply means “a diabolically wicked person or spirit who terrorizes others by means of evil acts.”(3) Levy names the collective psychosis as “malignant egophrenia” which he defines as a condition in which the human ego is estranged from the deeper Self.
The disease of “malignant egophrenia” (ME) is also the disease of industrial civilization, an economic, political, and social arrangement which requires violence to maintain itself. Every inhabitant of industrial civilization is infected with the ME disease, but Levy notes that “full blown” Wetikos “are not in touch with their own humanity and therefore can’t see the humanity in others.” (13)
The acronym, “ME” is certainly no accident because malignant egophrenia naturally causes psychic vision to focus on “me” and my needs rather than more broadly on the rest of the world in addition to me. When we are unwittingly victims and carriers of the ME disease, we perpetuate the collective psychosis and the phenomenal evil of which it is capable.
When nature destroys,
it is not from ambition or greed or self-aggrandizement,
but in obedience to mysterious laws
that seek the good of the whole universe
above the survival and well-being of the parts.
who storm against ideas and structures
that have become entrenched in their societies and cultures
when awareness awakens them
to evils their contemporaries are blind to.
Anthony de Mello

Chapter “Men of Violence” p. 89
There was a wall of laughter and of smiles.
This wall existed for ages and many tried to climb it, but few succeeded.
Those who had climbed upon it saw something beyond,
and so interested were they that they smiled,
climbed over the wall and never returned.
The people of the town began to wonder
what magic could there be and what attraction,
that whoever climbed the wall never returned.
So they called it the wall of mystery.
Then they said,
'We must make an enquiry and send someone who can reach the top,
but we must tie him with a rope to hold him back.'
When the man they had thus sent reached the top of the wall,
he smiled and tried to jump over it, but they pulled him back.
Still he smiled, and when the people eagerly asked,
'what did you see there?'
he did not answer,
he only smiled.
This is the condition of the seer.
The man who in the shrine of his heart has seen the vision of God,
the one who has the realization of truth,
can only smile,
for words can never really explain what truth means.
and that which can be spoken in words is not the truth.
The ocean is the ocean;
the ocean is not a few drops of water that one puts in a bottle.
Just so truth cannot be limited by words:
truth must be experienced...
all we can do is make an effort
to render the mystery of life
intelligible to our minds.
"What is the nature of truth,
is it a theory, a principle,
a philosophy, or a doctrine?"
All theories, philosophies, principles, and doctrines
are only a cover over the truth.
The ultimate truth is that which cannot spoken,
for words are too inadequate to express it.
