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. …

Obama rejects Canada's Keystone XL pipeline to US

Washington (AFP) - US President Barack Obama on Friday blocked the Keystone XL oil pipeline that Canada sought to build into the United States, ruling it would harm the fight against climate change.

The long-awaited decision was a blow to Canada's new leader, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and pipeline operator TransCanada warned that it may file an application to renew the project.

But Obama, with one eye on the upcoming global climate change summit in Paris, said Keystone "would not serve the national interests of the United States" and could prove an environmental hazard.

"America is now a global leader when it comes to taking serious action to fighting climate change," he said. "Frankly, approving this project would have undercut that global leadership."

Trudeau, just two days into the job as Canada's premier, expressed disappointment at the decision -- which cuts off a potential key export route for Canadian oil -- but was philosophical.

"The Canada-US relationship is much bigger than any one project and I look forward to a fresh start with President Obama to strengthen our remarkable ties in a spirit of friendship and cooperation," he said.

Although the decision was not a surprise, TransCanada's shares fell sharply and the company quickly vowed to resurrect its bid, implicitly suggesting Obama's 2017 successor my revive the plan.

"TransCanada and its shippers remain absolutely committed to building this important energy infrastructure project," chief executive Russ Girling said.

'Campaign cudgel'

Public opinion has been divided over the project on both sides of the border, and for many, the debate has become a proxy for one on the broader issues of climate change and pollution from Canada's tar sands.

Girling alleged that "misplaced symbolism was chosen over merit and science" in rejecting the project, but Obama was able to cite the detailed conclusions of a large-scale US government investigation.

Obama said that -- instead of bringing heavy tar sands crude 1,179 miles (1,900 kilometers) from Alberta to the Gulf of Mexico -- the US should develop clean technologies that would bring jobs and energy security.

At the end of the month, Obama will travel to Paris to help ink a global climate accord aimed at limiting carbon emissions worldwide.

He said he had called Trudeau and both leaders agreed to work together on energy and climate issues.

US Republican Senate Leader Mitch McConnell was less sanguine about the decision.

He accused Obama of being "more interested in appeasing deep-pocketed special interests and extremists than helping tens of thousands of Americans who could have benefited from Keystone's good jobs."

Environmental group Friends of the Earth said it was a victory for the "fight against fossil fuels" -- boasting that "a routine decision to approve a pipeline" had been transformed "into a leadership test on climate change."

In his remarks -- made at the White House, flanked by both Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State John Kerry -- Obama suggested he thought lobbying efforts on both sides had gone too far.

"For years, the Keystone pipeline has occupied what I, frankly, consider an overinflated role in our political discourse," Obama complained.

"It became a symbol too often used as a campaign cudgel by both parties rather than a serious policy matter," he said, adding it was neither the "silver bullet for the economy, as was promised by some, nor the express lane to climate disaster proclaimed by others."

Tortured process

Calgary-based TransCanada has spent the last seven years trying to get the project built and said Friday after the decision that it may try to make another proposal.

But until today, Obama's White House has adamantly refused to take a public stance, with Obama hiding behind a tortured bureaucratic process led by the US State Department.

That review, Kerry said, has now concluded that the environmental risks of the pipeline outweigh any possible economic benefits to the United States.

"While it would facilitate the transportation to the United States of one of the dirtiest sources of fuel on the planet, the proposed project by itself is unlikely to significantly impact the level of crude extraction or the continued demand for heavy crude oil at refineries in the United States," he said.

In recent weeks, Obama's silence had become increasingly uncomfortable, with the Paris meeting nearing and Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton -- who once led the review as secretary of state -- saying it should not be approved.

TransCanada earlier this week had tried to halt the review, a move that was rejected by US government lawyers and now appears to have been an attempt to avert outright rejection.
