"Politics and Oneness"

"I spoke at length in a Commentary on the "Families of the Heart" Transmission concerning the purpose of LAW in the Old Testament of the Bible. I based this information on the teachings of the Apostle Paul (Master Hilarion), as set forth clearly in the his epistle to the Romans in the New Testament. According to Paul, God gave the Law to Moses and to Israel (ultimately) to prove to HUMANITY that we DON'T KEEP LAWS. Indeed, we CAN'T KEEP LAWS. We violate them at every opportunity. It is our nature. If you haven't yet read this chapter yet, you may want to click on the above link and do so before continuing.
The "Game" of Politics represents humanity's propensity to drag personal moral failure into a Collective Arena so it can be observed by a very Public Eye. We make treaties and break them, create alliances and forsake them--- set up dictators, then spend billions knocking them back down---very often in the Name of the Lord.
In normal dispatch of "political protocol," nations spend billions of dollars on formal dinners, public ceremonies, summit meetings, traditional inductions, political campaigns, and national mailings---while millions languish in disease and poverty around the world.
Even though God Himself tells us we can't obey laws, we still center many of our governmental systems around them. Then, we spend billions locking each other up so we won't "sin" again. Is there something wrong with this picture?
We cannot solve society's problems from the OUTSIDE-IN. Democrat-Republican-Independent-or Green. It makes no difference. Success in some areas of "government" does not mean that "political systems" work. Systems have power to restrain social decay for a time, but look at the TRENDS, Friends.......look at the trends. Three steps forward, SIX steps back. It's turning into a nightmare, and therein (partially) is our salvation. If we admit this has all become a "bad dream"..........then it must mean we are ready also to admit we have been asleep! Asleep and dreaming. And, even though laws continue to be enacted, and juries continue to assign "guilt" and "blame".......there is aGeneration growing up in our midst who now have the ability to see past smoke, mirrors, and rhetoric---JOURNEYING INWARD to identify our next levels of human evolution. Meanwhile, there is not going to be a shortage of those who will try to restrain and re-train humanity's (so-called) "errant" nature.
