Sovereignty Consciousness

 

(A synopsis by Dr. Taansen Fairmont Sumeru, Ph.D.)

The human species is now at one of its most important moments in history. In times past as high as over 99% of the people submitted to the thinking of others, in one particular way or another. Kings, queens, politicians, priests, priestesses, professors and other chiefs obliged this submission with the required domination. Now, the 99% is dropping precipitously, as more and more people are waking up to sovereignty consciousness.

Sovereignty consciousness is the essential constituent of all experience of freedom.

The Free Earth is that rapidly growing segment of the present day population who are getting wise to the fact that we have always been sovereign. No one dominates us; nor do we dominate others. It is not a matter of creating sovereignty; it is a matter of simply waking up and realising we already are.

True sovereignty doesn't rule; it serves. It earns its respect by providing valuable goods and/or services. You can easily tell who is a true sovereign. Are they respecting the freedom of others, and are they producing something of value to everyone, even if nothing more than harmony?

The false sovereigns are those who put on a disguise of authority and ruler-ship, who practise coercion, force, theft, and exploitation, and who thus produce damage, not benefits. False sovereigns are takers, not givers.

True sovereigns are emperors. They need nothing from others which is not offered. In turn, they have much to give, much to offer. They respect the freedom and property of others. They see these as intrinsic rights of all humans. While they may not agree with everyone's ideas, they respect the freedom others have to those ideas. They regard the attempt to exercise mind control over others as ridiculous, absurd, retarded, and wasteful.

One of the most strange concepts, and one of the most important, to people first becoming aware of this, is realising that those who dominate are simply an innocent expression of the collective submission consciousness. Master and slave are co-dependent; one cannot exist without the others. Therefore, the slave voluntarily grants the master his/her position. The big surprise is that when all slaves are liberated, only then are so-called masters liberated as well. They are two sides of the same coin.

Waking up to sovereignty consciousness means one realises that one is intrinsically free by nature, and that by neither trying to control others, nor allowing oneself to be controlled by others, one will actually enjoy a far superior life, both subjectively and objectively. Likewise, the contributions of goods and services from someone with sovereignty consciousness will bring benefits for society far beyond what subjects and slaves and those who dominate them can produce, in both quantity and quality.

The Founding Fathers of America possesses this consciousness, and gave expression to many aspects of it in their writings of the 1700's. They defined an American Citizen as a “sovereign without subjects” (U.S. Supreme Court, 1971, Chisholm vs. Georgia, 2 Dallas).

Sovereignty up until then had been understood as a position of ruler-ship over subjects. The Founding Fathers re-defined it to mean the same power, but with a different application; instead of using one's sovereignty to try to control others; one can use sovereignty to simply live free, and voluntarily allow everyone else to live free as well. They respected the freedom of all people.

However, at that time, the collective consciousness of humankind was far less advanced than it is today. Only an estimated 0.5% of the population back then really lived and understood sovereignty without subjects. About ten times that, or perhaps 5%, were learning it.

Today, about 10% of the population are both living and understanding sovereignty consciousness, and more than 50% are somewhere on the curve of learning it. A critical mass is coming closer and closer, when all of a sudden it will spread to 100%... all on the learning curve. This could come within the next few years, worldwide.

Therefore, those who are already becoming aware of it are ahead of the rest of the population. Being ahead means realising, among other things, that one is not a “leader”. Only non-sovereigns believe in leaders, because leaders and followers are like masters and slaves. The idea of leaders and followers is a primitive notion from the old ignorance.

Those who wake up to sovereignty ahead of the rest of the population don't become leaders; they become “way-showers”. They show the way. Its your free choice whether to follow it or not.

A “leader” is one who thinks you're “right” if you follow his way, and “wrong” if you don't. He expects you to be a follower, and he/she may even try to force you to follow. The more followers he/she has, the better they think they feel. They are basically suffering from a deep inferiority complex, and so their so-called “leading” is just an effort to cover up inferiority.

A way-shower, by contrast, is someone who expects you to think for yourself and make your own decisions. They may share information with you, and show you the consequences they have observed of taking various courses, but they recognise that everyone is unique, and whatever you decide must be right for you. They do not try to push their opinions on you, because they clearly see the absurdity and futility of such an effort.

A society of people awakening to sovereignty consciousness is a civilisation of way-showers, who voluntarily share the benefits of their experiences with each other, and who have outgrown the retarded and backward practises of trying to overwhelm the wills, the opinions, the rights, the possessions, the actions, or the freedom of others.

Skeptics will demand to see an example of such a civilisation before they will believe it is possible. They need only remove the blinders from their eyes to see that small minorities of every population on Earth have been successfully living sovereignty consciousness for thousands of years. These are the peaceful and harmonious artisans and intelligentsia who have given every valuable invention, advance, virtue, and blessing that has ever uplifted humanity.

History books that are mainly concerned with the chronology of the wars between those masquerading as so-called sovereigns, conveniently fail to mention the long periods of peace and plenty that existed because of these societies of authentic sovereigns.

A genuine sovereign is a way-shower, someone who has matured in the actual strength that only comes from true sovereignty consciousness. Imposters in disguise have been referred to as being “in power”, but that is not power, it is weakness. It is not power but force. When true power is absent weakness is present. They don't know what real strength is, so force is substituted. This, people erroneously call “power”.

True power is intrinsic to every human being. You possess it right now. All members of the human species already have true power, but most have been ignorant of it. This power is one's basic freedom of thought. You can think anything you want. No one can force you to think something you don't wish to think.

As awareness of intrinsic freedom grows, one's thoughts become more and more independent, free, intelligent, and wise. As a result, one's actions become exponentially greater, and one's fulfilment expands according.

This same fulfilment will more and more come to characterise the mainstream, the masses, as sovereignty consciousness spreads. This will be reflected in the spontaneous solutions to all the world's social problems.

While evolution goes on infinitely, and there is no final “end” utopia, the collective level of maturity that humankind will experience when sovereignty consciousness is more common, will certainly seem like a utopia in comparison with the way the world has been up 'til now.

Vast amounts of energy that were previously wasted in everyone giving their power away to the purveyors of hoaxes, will be liberated for productive uses by everyone waking up to the tremendous power all humans already possess, to be inner-directed, governed from within. This is the beginning of real freedom, happiness and enlightenment.

A mind using the old terminology might say, “then sovereignty consciousness will dominate the world”. But no, that's not true, because the very idea of domination is backward and obsolete. Rather, sovereignty consciousness will permeate the world, or will be well-known to the world.

The Free Earth already exists; it's just not well-known yet. As people awaken from their ignorance, they will realise it has always been here. That realisation a widespread scale, is the end of the dark ages. It is the dawn of the Age of Enlightenment.
