The Declaration of Human Freedom

Archangel Michael (Via Steve Beckow), Feb. 19, 2011

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 within.

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.

… The Shift in Human Nature

You're starting to see integrity change. Awareness recalibrates integrity, and the Human Being who would sit there and take advantage of another Human Being in an old energy would never do it in a new energy. The reason? It will become intuitive, so this is a shift in Human Nature as well, for in the past you have assumed that people take advantage of people first and integrity comes later. That's just ordinary Human nature.

In the past, Human nature expressed within governments worked like this: If you were stronger than the other one, you simply conquered them. If you were strong, it was an invitation to conquer. If you were weak, it was an invitation to be conquered. No one even thought about it. It was the way of things. The bigger you could have your armies, the better they would do when you sent them out to conquer. That's not how you think today. Did you notice?

Any country that thinks this way today will not survive, for humanity has discovered that the world goes far better by putting things together instead of tearing them apart. The new energy puts the weak and strong together in ways that make sense and that have integrity. Take a look at what happened to some of the businesses in this great land (USA). Up to 30 years ago, when you started realizing some of them didn't have integrity, you eliminated them. What happened to the tobacco companies when you realized they were knowingly addicting your children? Today, they still sell their products to less-aware countries, but that will also change.

What did you do a few years ago when you realized that your bankers were actually selling you homes that they knew you couldn't pay for later? They were walking away, smiling greedily, not thinking about the heartbreak that was to follow when a life's dream would be lost. Dear American, you are in a recession. However, this is like when you prune a tree and cut back the branches. When the tree grows back, you've got control and the branches will grow bigger and stronger than they were before, without the greed factor. Then, if you don't like the way it grows back, you'll prune it again! I tell you this because awareness is now in control of big money. It's right before your eyes, what you're doing. But fear often rules. …

Film of Zimbabwe 'vote-rigging'

By Alix Kroeger, BBC News

New evidence of vote-rigging in last month's presidential election in Zimbabwe has emerged in the form of a secret film made by a prison guard.

The guard, Shepherd Yuda, filmed the vote-rigging at his jail in a production for Guardian Films.

Prison officers, including Mr Yuda, who has now fled Zimbabwe, were forced to vote for President Robert Mugabe by superior officers.

The officers organised a postal ballot and stood over them as they cast votes.

The film alleges there was no secrecy in votes for Robert Mugabe

See film on Newsnight (iPlayer)


Mr Yuda decided to speak out after the murder of his uncle, an opposition activist, two months ago. 

He knew he and his family would have to leave Zimbabwe as a result.     

"This election: I have never seen that type of violence," he says in the film.

"The impact has left a lot of orphans; it has left a lot of people displaced. You cannot expect that from your government." 

He secretly filmed a war veteran, Superintendent Shambira, watching as prison officers voted. 

Supt Shambira ensured they marked their ballots for Robert Mugabe, and not the opposition candidate, Morgan Tsvangirai. 

Supt Shambira then logged each vote against an identification number. There was no secrecy. 

All those voting knew Supt Shambira had the power to condemn them as MDC supporters.

Mr Yuda says he had no choice but to vote for Robert Mugabe. 

Mr Yuda also spoke to voters on the streets of Harare. 

"They're standing right in front of you when you cast your vote," one voter told Mr Yuda. "They watch." 

The voter went on: "Shambira definitely sees you vote - there's no way of hiding it. I was thinking I could vote when he wasn't looking, but he was watching like a hawk." 

Re-education rallies 

Among the prisoners is Tendai Biti, a prominent opposition MP and human-rights lawyer. 

Mr Yuda filmed him having his leg-irons removed for a court hearing. 

Mr Biti, who is awaiting trial on treason charges, was released on bail, but could still face execution. 

"You know, I was so touched: for a man of his status to be reduced to such levels, to be put in a criminal institution," Mr Yuda says in the film. "It's very, very sad." 

Mr Yuda also captured conversations between prison guards in the run-up to the 27 June run-off election, as tension was increasing. 

"In my area, there's a lot of tension," one guard tells him. "Zanu-PF (ruling party) thugs came to my house as soon as I left for work today. They abducted my wife. They took her to the base." 

These "bases" are springing up in private houses all over Harare. 

Previously they were a feature of rural Zimbabwe; now they have reached the capital.

Ordinary people are abducted and compelled to attend Zanu-PF re-education rallies. 

"I am forced to go and guard these bases all through the night, after my shift here," another prison officer says. 

"They cordon off the whole street: it becomes a no-go area. These people are killers, the thugs that Zanu-PF are using." 

And another guard says the rest of the world should do more to help Zimbabwe.

"It's in the hands of the international community now," he says. 

"[South African President] Thabo Mbeki has betrayed us. He didn't want to come down hard on Mugabe. Instead, he kept going on and on about pan-Africanism." 

On election day itself, Mr Yuda films a woman who is so fearful that she has pretended to have voted. 

She colours her little finger with a pink marker, hoping to simulate the ink used to identify those who have already cast their ballots. 

The day after Robert Mugabe's election, Shepherd Yuda and his family began packing, preparing to leave Zimbabwe. 

Their lives would have been in danger if they had stayed. They can only begin to think about returning once Mr Mugabe has gone.

UFO Invading Bucks County?

The Trentonian.com,  ARTEMIS COUGHLAN, Staff Writer, 07/04/2008

MIDDLETOWN, Pa. - UFOs over Don Pablo's? Aliens making pitstops at the Oxford Valley Mall, perhaps trying to steal bagels from Panera?

The Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) has sent field investigators to check out three reports of strange crafts or lights flying over Lower Bucks County, a spokesman said yesterday.

These illuminated dots in the sky over the Oxford Valley Mall could be UFOs or just reflections on the camera lens, MUFON’s George Filer said.

"I got calls from radar operators last night telling me about radar contacts with UFOs, so there's been other radar confirmation of a number of the sightings in Bucks County," said Air Force (Ret.) Major George Filer, East Coast regional director and New Jersey state director of MUFON. 

With these reports that would've made late Trentonian reporter/columnist Rick Murray giddy with excitement, people in the last 24 hours claim there was an "octopus-type" UFO in the sky near the Oxford Valley Mall, an orange-red blinking light in the sky seen by a motorist on I-95 in Bensalem and another over a section of Levittown, MUFON members said. 

The photo of the one seen near the Oxford Valley Mall on Business Route 1 in Middletown was taken by someone who was taking "pictures of 'weird' cloud formations and lights in the night sky on June 22," according to Filer's records. 

The witness was downloading digital pictures into her laptop and saw vortexes in the photo that were hovering in the sky. 

She said she had feelings of elation and obsession with watching the night sky because of several encounters/observations of "weird" clouds and lights plus "black helicopters" in the area, according to his reports. 

The objects, the report said, just moved away. They're all being checked out by voluntary field investigators certified by MUFON. 

The one seen near the Oxford Valley Mall supposedly over the now-closed Don Pablo's Restaurant might be a tentacled UFO or not, Filer said: "It could be the reflection on the camera lens from the ground lights." 

Filer, however, is a real believer in UFOs, as a former pilot stationed at McGuire Air Force Base. 

"We are asked to chase UFOs regularly. We would see objects at night. I'm fairly convinced there was something there, and the sightings are treated seriously by the government," Filer said. "There's a lot more to it than you realize. Some things that have been seen in the sky move at 16,000 mph, and you know that object isn't ours." 

Filer said he thinks Earth is an "oasis in space" where UFOs come to get water, electricity, animals or whatever they need. 

Even if it's just a sesame bagel, coffee and green tea from Panera.
