Thoughts on Freedom

Thoughts on Freedom
By Alisa Battaglia 

 

“A Nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear.”~Marcus Tullius Cicero 42B.C.

 

The age of modernity is all about the expert. Without the degreed opinion obtained by the expert it seems that our world would be at a loss for common sense. Why must we have a degree in law to be qualified to know what the laws should be and how they are enforced? Why must we be a professional politician to hold office to make the laws and govern the country? Ponder why, when nobody has any more right to lead than another. “No right to govern comes from birth, education, might or money.”

Ordinary people with a vision founded our nation. They were farmers, merchants and the like. These thinking individuals wrote their vision that is the United States Constitution and they established a government modeled by that vision as well as to the world. We do not need lawyers, politicians or any other experts to direct this nation. Perhaps we might consider a “thinking degree” so that we may begin to “think deeply” about what actually matters in terms of redirecting this nation – to return to a “government of the people…by the people…for the people.” Common sense from the common people, not professionals, gives us the best government. A government of the common man in which those with the public trust demonstrate, not only with words, that all men and women are equal under the law, but that everyone is equal in the privilege to govern.

Our founding generation understood well that government is a threat to liberty and, therefore, it must be forever held in check not only by formal constitutional fetters but, more importantly, by an ethic of skepticism by citizens. It’s both foolish and un-American to suppose that such powers pose no significant threat to the liberties of the very people they ostensibly are designed to protect.

Our Declaration of Independence spells out the relationship of government to the governed:

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness. That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

Today, with the changing technological landscape affecting how people relate and interact with one another and to life reveals a breakdown in common sense values,
as virtue is turned into vice and vice into virtue. I propose a New Planetary Ethic where Albert Einstein’s quote says its best: “Our morality in our action can give beauty and dignity to our lives.”

Time-Critical Mission

Don’t resent the work.
It gives you the strength to stand whole and silent before the vast Mystery ~Unknown

Many of us feel a time-critical mission – an impulse that is guiding us to re-discover an age-old deception of a creation story deliberately hidden, destroyed, and almost wholly forgotten as if it never were. A mystery shrouded layered with lies that conceal both Earthly and human origins. A story that is vital to understanding our human potential wiped off the planet by warring religions and statehood vying for power over humanity and control over Earth’s bounties. A self-sovereign people have never been popular with those who seek to control the world. So it was then, as it is today that the most supreme gift of our divine heritage has been heisted – that of divine intelligence in cooperative co-creation with the Spirit in Nature.

So, here we are amidst a path of Extremes. The question remains as to whether we will succeed in breaking down old thought forms of control and domination in order to thrive or will we suffer under the Psychopathy of human evil cast by the Archon net  and driven into ecocide? We stand at an interdimensional junction point, a gateway signaling the eternal Now moment imprinting the Souls signature in the dimensions of time and space co-imagining a different storyline.

The human body is the microcosm of the macrocosm and is thus, archival. Our Soul body holds keys for entry into the Living Library as the repository of  Wisdom pushing the boundaries of psychological time and pointing to our purpose in the galactic theme. Recapitulation or memory redirects us to our time critical mission, but we must surrender to its lead that requires active participation and consecration to the One Life.

Creativity and service are one and the same; service is the life of the soul creatively expressed.

Transitioning into the need of the hour may feel difficult, but only in the beginning due to attachment of what is comfortable, fear of the future or failure. And yet, the future is now, what we do in the moment. Since transformation is not future oriented and only occurs by being present with what is, we start wherever we are. The individual Soul, Kosmic assistance, planetary guardians, and Nature point out the directional path to help us discover our resonant Soul group to cohere greater power.

Here, dormant faculties are activated that assist us in opening doors for us to enter, while other times they help to close them. For instance, some missions require 90-degree turns with no warning, they are the more difficult transitions especially in relationships and family units where two people rarely grow together at the same rate. It is in this area that we must use focused communication to make our shift supportive for everyone.

Many strange and catastrophic events are catalyzing our lives into new directions, to bring awareness and swift halting of the actions of humanity turning against itself. The death-urge is upon us. Humanity as Nature must cease to destroy Itself and instead, learn new ways to interact with our world, to love and reconnect to our brethren in Nature. To finally live a New Planetary Ethic that supports and nurtures All life. When we love our selves, we love our planet and defend anything that stands in its continued integrity. We support the Good, the Beautiful and the True!
