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 Recalibration of Awareness – Apr 20/21, 2012 (Kryon channeled by Lee Carroll) (Subjects: Old Energy, Recalibration Lectures, God / Creator, Religions/Spiritual systems (Catholic Church, Priests/Nun’s, Worship, John Paul Pope, Women in the Church otherwise church will go, Current Pope won’t do it), Middle East, Jews, Governments will change (Internet, Media, Democracies, Dictators, North Korea, Nations voted at once), Integrity (Businesses, Tobacco Companies, Bankers/ Financial Institutes, Pharmaceutical company to collapse), Illuminati (Started in Greece, with Shipping, Financial markets, Stock markets, Pharmaceutical money (fund to build Africa, to develop)), Shift of Human Consciousness, (Old) Souls, Women, Masters to/already come back, Global Unity.... etc.) - (Text version)

… 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. …

Run up to G7: Merkel puts young voices first

Ahead of next month's G7 summit, Angela Merkel met with young delegates from around the world to find out what really matters to young people. They are determined to take responsibility for the future.

Deutsche Welle, 11 May 2015

 Merkel meets young delegates in Berlin

Eighteen year old Antonio is concerned about the apathy of young people towards politics. "I think we are fighting against the risk of a complete lack of interest," he said. "This is a risk of our generation." But Antonio can hardly be described as a disengaged and disinterested teenager. Despite his frustrations with his apathetic peers, the young Italian is smiley and excitable. He is one of 54 young people who have spent the week in Berlin discussing key issues on the agenda of the upcoming G7 summit.

The young delegates at the J7 Youth Summit met with German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Monday to give her an insight into their views on topics from climate change to economic policy. Nervous and excited whispering punctuated by the occasional sneaky selfie in the chancellery conference room preceded Merkel's arrival. "It's not about being an adult – it's about being a kid, but taking responsibility," says Antonio, who joined the summit with the aim to improve youth participation in politics.

"I'm very inspired and very motivated":

Outside perspectives

At the summit, organized by the German ministry for families and youth along with Unicef, teams of delegates from the G7 countries Germany, France, the UK, Canada, Italy, Japan and the USA are supported by delegations representing Africa and the EU. They were invited to the summit in order to present the views of young people in countries the G7 aims to reach out to.

Brighton from Zambia, a bright and determined 21 year old with a wide smile, is one of five young members of Team Africa. For him, the summit was an important opportunity to get his voice heard not only by the German Chancellor, but by future leaders of the world's most powerful industrialized nations. The 21 year old environmental science student and climate activist has already set up set up his own NGO,"Agents for Change," in his home country. "Many African countries are facing the consequences of climate change, ranging from water scarcity and drought to unbearable warmer temperatures," he says. "I want to see that the world responds to this challenge and tries to adopt more sustainable lifestyles."

Meeting the youngsters, Merkel listened intently, taking notes as they presented their views. For Aine from Japan, protecting the marine environment was a key issue on the agenda. She condemned unsustainable human activity in the world's oceans, calling for the creation of government backed action plans in local communities and a more transparent dialogue on accountability. Others were keen to discuss female empowerment, praising Merkel for setting an example to women around the world with her success as a politician. Global health was also an important topic, with youngsters raising their concerns about antibiotic overconsumption and poverty driven disease.

Determined, but with a sense of fun

Throughout the week the young delegates have taken part in discussions and group sessions to prepare for their meeting with Angela Merkel, as well as a G7 simulation game designed to give them a taste of the pressures of such a large and influential political event. They also had the opportunity to talk to experts about their specialist topics before presenting position papers on key issues to the German chancellor. Chris Kip, a consultant at Unicef Geneva, advised the teams on how corporate social responsibility can contribute to economic development. "I was very impressed with the knowledge and expertise that exists in the room already," he said. "But in addition to that knowledge, the energy and fun these people are having when talking about these issues is crucial."

'Act Now': the motto of the J7 Youth Summit

The sessions were also a chance for the youngsters to get to know each other and build up an international network of other like minded people. Discussing plans in small groups, the excitement and motivation to act were palpable with the small conference room barely being able to contain the ideas being flung around within its walls. "The atmosphere is very stimulating," said Antonio, busily sketching out a plan for a social media campaign to encourage political engagement along with his counterparts from France and the USA.

'An investment for the future'

As the youngsters flashed each other smiles and thumbs ups between the speeches on Monday, it was clear that this group of teenagers have ambitious plans in pushing forward social change. They intend to launch an online and offline communication initiative aimed at addressing the lack of communication between young people and their governments, driven by the hashtag #NotJustAKid.

"We're not diplomats, we're not politicians, we are kids – we listen to Nirvana and watch Game of Thrones," says Alexandre from France, a tall young man with braces and a passion for philosphy. "But we are an investment for the future." Team Italy's Antonio agrees. "I think we received a lot of attention here, and now we can only look forward to what is going to happen at the political debate," he says. "My main goal now will be to spread everything I learnws here, to share it with my neighbor, my community, my city, my country, wherever I can." And it certainly seems these youngsters are set to be the game changers of the future. In the words of 21 year old Brighton from Zambia, "there is more power in the hands of young people than in those of the people in power."
