While I'm sure that we are all aware of the tyranny that is unfolding around us, how many of us have looked into the mirror and evaluating our own track record? We have ALL been granted authority from Creator, but for some reason, the vast majority have abdicated that responsibility and given it to others. Then those same people bitch and complain about what their earthly rulers are doing. If we want to make a difference, then it is time we take back our power and authority to govern properly.
But what is proper governance?
Throughout most of history, people have turned to scripture to answer that question.
And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and replenish the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moveth upon the earth." - Genesis 1:28
The problem is that they saw the word subdue (to subject, subdue, force, keep under, bring into bondage) and justified tyranny as a valid method of governance. However, if we heal ourselves, work on our connection with spirit and feel with our heart, we will find that that method of governance is not only invalid, but morally and ethically repugnant.
What kind of kings and queens are we? Do we govern like a tyrant, taking what we want, raping, pillaging, consuming and killing along the way, or do we take a benevolent approach? If benevolence is our governing model, then we will find our capacity to replenish the earth will also help heal everyone on this planet. Continuing to vote for and surrender our sovereign power to the tyrants will only result in continued death and destruction.
The consequences of our choices are at a cross road as our actions speak much louder than words ever have. We are being called to step up and help mentor the next group of sentient beings on Mother Earth. Our leadership will set the stage for how that relationship will unfold. To be frank, I must admit that I'm DEEPLY concerned. On chapter eleven in my book "Graduating Life with Honours", I spoke about levels of consciousness and suggested that the level of self awareness ended with man, but also hinted that whales, dolphins, apes and elephants have obtained that level of awareness.
What if we are here to help the next group of beings through their spiritual transition? How can we accomplish that if we have not done the work ourselves and continue to violate spirit? Like children, they learn from the parents through observation. We are harming their growth by continuing the cycle of violence, just as we do with our youth and neighbours. This is not an acceptable governance model.
The pressure is on as some of our spiritual brothers and sisters have entered the stone age. There was a 2008 article that showed photographs of an orangutan spear fishing, while other reports show other monkeys using stones and other tools.

Joe Rogan even had a recent clip where they start to talk about and acknowledge how some of our brothers and sisters are advancing quickly.
They are like spiritual children and we have a profound duty to help them grow and develop. Do we teach them how to govern tyrannically or do we grow up, spiritually mature and help our brothers and sisters through this transition peacefully?
The consequences of our actions and choices will reverberate throughout history and deeply into the Spiritual Realm. It will also have a profound impact on our own spiritual growth and whether we can maintain our position as stewards. If we fail to govern ourselves peacefully, we will NOT have the opportunity to help others do the same. Creator and Mother Earth are testing us. How we move forward from this point forth is being evaluated and judged. So far, our track record is absolutely abysmal, but we still have opportunities to redeem ourselves.
We are to love our neighbours as our self. We have yet to love our selves, demonstrated by all the violence in our lives and around the world. The first priority is to heal so that we can remedy the governance models that rule the world. When we accomplish that, then we can replenish the earth and turn to our brothers and sisters to help them through the perilous transition.
Moving though self awareness is one of the most challenging journeys any spiritual being will EVER go through. We owe it to ourselves and others to make that our priority. The consequences if we fail is too grim to contemplate.
