March 8 - World Freedom is a Context, an Available Space

World Freedom is a Context, an Available Space

2011 March 8
by Steve Beckow
Your letters continue to roll in about what you did on World Freedom Day and the results of that event are also becoming clearer to me.

Perhaps the greatest result of any event of that kind is that it creates a context or a space that may not have been there previously. I don’t want to say that it definitely wasn’t there previously because it may have been and probably was. But it wasn’t there for me and is now.

What am I talking about?

Well, you’ve all heard stories about people showing newspaper photographs to certain primitive peoples who had never seen a newspaper photograph. All they saw were black dots and white spaces. Or heard about how European ships showed up the first time in Hawaii and how the natives, unused to seeing them, did not recognize them at first as ships.

Surely that’s happened to you as well. You’ve seen something on the horizon and, for one reason or another, you didn’t recognize it for what it was, perhaps because you hadn’t seen anything like it before.

Even trying to ride a bike for the first time is an example of this. The first time we go crashing over. The second, third or fourth time, we don’t.

Similarly, in getting together and getting behind World Freedom Day we have created a context that may not have been there before – at last not for us.

Now we can talk about the context: “world freedom.” Now, as we look over things we have seen and heard before, all of a sudden, their relationship to this new context becomes apparent. So The Little Dictator‘s speech becomes something we hear as it relates to world freedom. Or the situation of the populations of China and North Korea now become evaluated by us in terms of world freedom.

We can conceive of something now called “world freedom” where we might not have before. It has become a topic of conversation, but more so a topic of our own investigation and contemplation. We are at work with it.  And that will only grow with us and hopefully with others.

Certainly for me, everything I see these days I estimate in terms of “world freedom.” That the world could be free is much more real to me now than it was even a week ago. Hey, I get it. We could really be free as a world. That is a possibility. That has been created as a space, just like a frame, once built, becomes an invitation to paint a picture.

So World Freedom Day being over is not the end of world freedom. To use Jesus’s words, let it be a measure of meal that leavens the whole loaf. Let it be a mustard seed that grows into a great tree in which the birds of heaven may nest some day. Let it be a great Pearl a treasure in a field, which, we having seen it, we sell all we have and purchase the pearl, the field.

If it becomes that, then the people of Libya become members of our family who want to be free. The people of North Korea, the same. The Chinese, the Burmese, the Congolese, everybody. Why should not everyone be as free as we are, and not much, more, including us?

World freedom is achievable. It is coming.  It will be ours to enjoy and not just world freedom, but individual sovereignty and not just individual sovereignty, but liberation from fear, anxiety, worry.  You and I are, here and now, building an edifice from the ground up that will offer to all its residents freedom, sovereignty, liberation.

As we enter the Ninth Wave of the Mayan Calendar, build well. Build on rock. Build for eternity.

The Declaration of Human Freedom

The Declaration of Human Freedom

Every being is a divine and eternal soul living in a temporal body. Every being was alive before birth and will live after death.

Every soul enters into physical life for the purpose of experience and education, that it may, in the course of many lifetimes, learn its true identity as a fragment of the Divine.

Life itself is a constant process of spiritual evolution and unfoldment, based on free choice, that continues until such time as we realize our true nature and return to the Divine from which we came.

No soul enters life to serve another, except by choice, but to serve its own purpose and that of the Divine from which it came.

All life is governed by natural and universal laws which precede and outweigh the laws of humanity. These laws, such as the law of karma, the law of attraction, and the law of free will, are decreed by God to order existence and assist each person to achieve life’s purpose.

No government can or should survive that derives its existence from the enforced submission of its people or that denies its people their basic rights and freedoms.

Life is a movement from one existence to another, in varied venues throughout the universe and in other universes and dimensions of existence. We are not alone in the universe but share it with other civilizations, most of them peace-loving, many of whom are more advanced than we are, some of whom can be seen with our eyes and some of whom cannot.

The evidence of our five senses is not the final arbiter of existence. Humans are spiritual as well as physical entities and the spiritual side of life transcends the physical. God is a Spirit and the final touchstone of God’s Truth is not physical but spiritual. The Truth is to be found inward.

God is one and, because of this, souls are one. They form a unity. They are meant to live in peace and harmony together in a “common unity” or community. The use of force to settle affairs runs contrary to natural law. Every person should have the right to conduct his or her own affairs without force, as long as his or her choices do not harm another.

No person shall be forced into marriage against his or her will. No woman shall be forced to bear or not bear children, against her will. No person shall be forced to hold or not hold views or worship in a manner contrary to his or her choice. Nothing vital to existence shall be withheld from another if it is within the community’s power to give.

Every person shall retain the ability to think, speak, and act as they choose, as long as they not harm another. Every person has the right to choose, study and practice the education and career of their choice without interference, provided they not harm another.

No one has the right to kill another. No one has the right to steal from another. No one has the right to force himself or herself upon another in any way.

Any government that harms its citizens, deprives them of their property or rights without their consent, or makes offensive war upon its neighbors, no matter how it misrepresents the situation, has lost its legitimacy. No government may govern without the consent of its people. All governments are tasked with seeing to the wellbeing of their citizens. Any government which forces its citizens to see to its own wellbeing without attending to theirs has lost its legitimacy.

Men and women are meant to live fulfilling lives, free of want, wherever they wish and under the conditions they desire, providing their choices do not harm another and are humanly attainable.

Children are meant to live lives under the beneficent protection of all, free of exploitation, with unhindered access to the necessities of life, education, and health care.

All forms of exploitation, oppression, and persecution run counter to universal and natural law. All disagreements are meant to be resolved amicably.

Any human law that runs counter to natural and universal law is invalid and should not survive. The enactment or enforcement of human law that runs counter to natural and universal law brings consequences that cannot be escaped, in this life or another. While one may escape temporal justice, one does not escape divine justice.

All outcomes are to the greater glory of God and to God do we look for the fulfillment of our needs and for love, peace, and wisdom. So let it be. Aum/Amen.
