No centralized worldly government
Consider one of the more subtle aspects of the descent of the Age of Higher Awareness, an aspect that few people have begun to grasp and understand. When you have higher awareness, you do not see what is currently manifest as permanent or unavoidable, you do not even see it as wrong or bad. You do not judge according to the standard that is dominant on earth, the standard created by the manipulators in their blindness. One of the more subtle aspects of the descent of the Age of Higher Awareness is that humankind must begin to rise above this manipulated mindset: the tendency to judge according to a standard that can be expressed in words instead of letting higher awareness be the standard, or rather set a matrix that is beyond any standard on earth.
Let us go back and look at some of the civilizations in the past that at least today are considered “great civilizations.” You have seen many such civilizations around the world, civilizations that have had a great level of organization. They were under one or a few rulers and therefore by being so-called “unified” under one command they could also be unified in carrying out certain tasks that could not be carried out by smaller civilizations. This might be building great cities, it might be building great armies and fighting other armies. This, of course, is not what in higher awareness is seen as a great task, but the point is that in the past you have seen the formation of certain very large civilizations.
These civilizations reached a very high level of organization and a high level of ability to get things done in the physical, the material world. Look at some of these civilizations in China. Look at some in Central and Southeast Asia, in India, in Persia, the Middle East, Sumerians, Egyptians, and the Roman Empire and in Central and South America. You see this tendency that civilizations would arise that would build great cities and great monuments, some of which even stand today.
It is entirely possible that when people hear the concept that there is a potential of the coming of the Age of Higher Awareness – and possibly even a physical golden age that will surpass any of the golden ages seen in the past – then they come to think that somehow the Age of Higher Awareness will be modeled on the great civilizations of the past, that it will have a great level of organization. The world will, so to speak, be united under one centralized government and this government can issue edicts or things will be done, or they will often be done the same way around the world.
Filtering out diversity kills creativity
In the past these “great” civilizations had attained what they attained by having a very centralized structure, a centralized philosophy but also a very centralized standard for how you judged right and wrong, good and bad, how you defined a standard for how people should behave. What these civilizations did in the past was that they would achieve their results by shutting out diversity, by putting down, by destroying by filtering away diversity. They had a centralized structure so that all they had were people that behaved according to a certain set of rules, often defined by a religion but filtering down to the laws of society.
You may take a more recent look, for example, at the Roman Empire. Again, a very centralized structure and a very centralized philosophy, and of course the willingness to use force. In every civilization in the past that has achieved “greatness” there has been a willingness to use force against those who would not follow the leaders of that civilization, those who claimed their right to diversify rather than to “unify.” Force through sameness.
Yet the Age of Higher Awareness will not be attained by destroying diversity or by creating a centralized world government. There will be centralized governments, there will even be one overseeing government for the entire planet, but it will not use force and it will not destroy diversity. The higher vision is to create a golden age based on diversity. Even though there is a need to have a certain outer apparatus of organization that can coordinate around the world, this centralized organization will coordinate, it will not dictate. It will not use force, it will not even bring forth a centralized religion or philosophy that all must follow. Why will it not do this? Because if there ever is to be a lasting worldwide organization, it will based on the recognition of the principles of higher awareness.
No more exclusivity
Such an organization will recognize that there is a level beyond the material world and that human beings can interact with it through raising their awareness. More importantly, it will recognize that any human being has the ability to raise his or her awareness and receive ideas from higher awareness. Higher awareness cannot be monopolized by a small elite or one person. Higher awareness can potentially communicate with any person regardless of their status or position in the earthly organization or civilization.
You can see the civilizations of the past and how they were all based on exclusivity, which is the idea that only one person could rule or only one person could be the intermediary between God (or the gods) and man. Look at the Roman Empire and how it was based on the idea of one emperor who in certain periods was even seen as God on earth. The spiritual arrogance of certain emperors was such that they defined themselves as gods on earth. Today, no secular ruler does this but you do indeed see people in spiritual and religious movements who have the arrogance to define themselves as the exclusive incarnation of God or a certain God. You see how the Roman Empire took the idea that the Emperor was God on earth, transferred it to Christianity and now created the philosophy that Jesus was the only intermediary between God and the people. At the same time, there was a church that controlled the people’s access to what was administered by Jesus. Thus came the whole superstructure of the Catholic Church with the Pope as the Vicar of Christ.
Why does Christ need a Vicar when Christ instituted the tradition of the Comforter, the Holy spirit that could speak through anyone, blowing where it listesth? Many well-meaning people do not question this because they have been deceived by the manipulators. They have no evil intent, they only intended to do the best. They thought they were Christ’s representatives, they thought they were doing what Christ wanted them to do, but they failed to do the one thing that can manifest the Age of Higher Awareness, which was to tune in to higher awareness in their own hearts.
Corruption and elitism
One of the important aspects of manifesting the Age of Higher Awareness is, of course, to overcome corruption. You may look at some of the corruption indexes that have been compiled by international organizations. It is not difficult to see, as a simple matter of fact, that the countries who have the lowest level of corruption have the highest material standard of living and, generally speaking, have a well-functioning, often growing economy. What is then the connection between the two?
Well, it is that corruption allows a small elite to gather more and more privileges to themselves, and how do they do this? In practical terms, they do it by paying off certain people in the government apparatus so that they can get the special favors that other people are not able to get. What is truly behind this is that, in any nation where an elite forms (and that means pretty much any nation) the elite does not want to share their privileges. They want to keep the population down, they want to keep competition down.
What is the effect of this? It is that it also keeps creativity down. More than that, it also means that higher awareness cannot multiply the efforts of people in the nation where there is too big of a disparity between rich and poor, between the privileged and the non-privileged. You see in general that countries that eradicate corruption, they have more of a multiplication factor, and therefore their economies are doing better. This is something that anybody can see by simply studying the facts.
In the Age of Higher Awareness, those countries that make the greatest effort to eradicate corruption, will indeed have a more well-functioning economy. They will have more equal opportunity for all people, and therefore they will have, generally speaking, a more happy and satisfied population.
The people need to decide what kind of leaders they want
There can only be elitism when there is someone who is not part of the elite. This causes the elite to want to hold back those who are not in the elite. You have a dualistic system of the haves and the have-nots where the population is divided into groups and there is a belief that these groups are fixed and it is impossible to ascend from the lowest to the highest.
Will people recognize the fundamental truth that Christ expressed when he said: “I can of my own self do nothing, it is the Father within me.” In other words, it is not this outer self that is higher than anyone else on earth. It is only through my connection to a higher reality (that is beyond this world) that I have any ability to do anything of value.
This is the the fundamental dynamic that creates a golden age and what causes it to collapse—if it will not continue to transcend. A golden age is not a state of perfection that, once reached, will be maintained for a thousand years, as many Christians believe that when Christ comes again, he will establish a permanent kingdom that will last for a thousand years, or forever or whatever they believe. The golden age can only continue if society continues to transcend itself.
The law is continual, ongoing growth. This is expressed in the physical equivalent, namely the second law of thermodynamics, which basically says that if a system is not growing, it will collapse, it will self-destruct. The deeper understanding is that a system cannot grow unless it is connected to a higher reality outside itself and thus receives input from that higher reality. This causes it to transcend itself and come closer to manifesting – in the material universe – the thoughtforms that exist in higher awareness.
The need in human society is for the spreading of a new awareness that it is indeed possible, desirable and necessary that there are some among the leaders of humankind who are willing to rise up and say: “I can of my own self do nothing, it is the Father (meaning the higher self) within me who is doing the work.” What you see in the world today are leaders who are not willing to say this, for they truly believe that they are smart enough and powerful enough to do all things on their own. They believe they have the solution to every problem. They believe they can bring forth paradise on earth, even if it requires them to exterminate millions of people that seem to stand in the way of that paradise.
A critical mass of people need to come to the point where they are willing to stand up and say: “There is an alternative to the kind of leaders we have had in recorded history—those who are ego-centered, those who are stuck in duality. There is something beyond the duality consciousness, and we demand leadership that is beyond duality and we are willing to play our roles in taking up that leadership.”
As the more aware prople dare to come out and express that aspect, that level of Christhood, there are those among the people who will be awakened and say: “Oh but this is true, this is self-evident. Suddenly we see that this is self-evident whereas we could not see it yesterday, but now we see it and we want those kind of leaders in all aspects of society. For there is a higher truth. Everything is not relative and we cannot allow the duality consciousness to manipulate everything and turn it into a relativistic truth where those who are somehow in a privileged position can define a ‘truth’ that allows them to maintain or expand their power and privilege, at the cost of the general population living as virtual slaves of the elite.”
