Democratic Principles of Creation and Heaven
Mankind’s social and governmental structures which grant and inspire the rights of individualism and personal expression is what is called democracy. This all-inclusive and broadly composed form of human government is probably the closest that man comes to emulating the original cause of all things in Creation which grants the privilege of plurality and wide-ranging diversity throughout Creation. The opposite of that allowance within Creation’s source for self-governing and variety is glaringly demonstrated in human conduct in the numb obsession of hardline faith systems which are referred to as fundamentalism.
Fundametalism may be best evaluated as a paralysis of spiritual insight which results from an unwavering belief in a set of man-conceived strategies of religious, political or philosophical nature which are made compulsory as the basic and unalterable game-plan for storming Heaven. With no wiggle room left for seekers to question or study all the enormous possibilities which “God” left open to seekers of truth, any social or true spiritual advancement then becomes virtually unachievable.
The power which was/is responsible for Creation’s manifestations has always been on purely democratic principles and is sustained and maintained through the collaboration of all individual components for the preservation of all. In short, all things exist as part of an unrestricted principle just as the pre-Christian Roman and Greek philosophers taught. In that perception regarding the essential interaction of all components which define Creation, all things great and small therefore stand equal before Creation’s power, which may be better termed as Cosmic Consciousness. That creative directive of equal status which is active throughout Creation is best expressed in the democratic forms of man’s governments. Plurality and interacting diversity is seen throughout all Creation and is the indisputable evidence that democratic principles prevail within the quantum Source. In direct opposition to this, the hardline religionists and obstructionist politicos’ idea of heaven and social order is that everything is structured as either a one-dimensional kingdom or a monotonous inflexible theocracy.
True democratic management, which is active as the creative principle throughout the observable universe, is not concerned with the possessions or power plays over which individual entities are inclined to obsess over. From the democratic process which is active in the universe, the freedom of expression and interactivity serve as the sustaining framework for Creation. Indeed all things must respect and support each other, otherwise the universe would cease to exist. The minority is always preserved and respectedd as an inherent stabilizing element within the activities of the whole. This is a fact of universal continuance that all the world’s man-invented faith systems should consider, especially since they love to pretend such devotion to a humanlike god as the Creator of all.
Democracy is modeled upon that respect and liberty which is extended throughout Creation, and in that creative activity there is granted the assurance of personal freedom which entitles each citizen the liberty and the responsibilty of shaping their own identity. Equality before creation’s law is the basic principle within Creation, and in man’s evolved societies equality before the law is the basic principle of democratic governing. No individual or group can hold a monopoly on wisdom, virtue or importance before the creative Source. That means that in man’s democratic governments the stripping away of laws for the benefit of special interests, as currently pursued by the political and religious zealots in the USA, is therefore the open contempt for established and proven laws of Creation.
An important part in pre-Christian times, such as prevailed in the city-states of classical Greece and Rome, the rule by the people was vitally important. However, those ancient forms of near-democratic forms of government did not presume that all individuals necessarily held equal qualities. It was understood that every entity is made definable by its limitations, but any perceived differences were nonetheless interlocked within the whole, and they are therefore impartially balanced as far as the creative Source is concerned.
Stoic philosophy in the pre-Christian timeframe held that every matter object with which we interact is a passive condition of energy and is distinguishable from the animating or active principle—which traditional man-centered faith systems consistently personify as a humanlike god. Stoic ethics cannot be described as a metaphysical theory, although it regarded the creative energy spark from which each individual living thing attained manifestation as the defining feature of each living being’s individuality. Man’s faith systems have referred to this defining feature as “soul” or “spirit,” which most everyone habitually confuses with their ego.
The four cardinal virtues of Stoicism reflect the philosophy that had been put forth by the Greek philosphers Plato and Socrates, these being wisdom, courage, justice and temperance. Stoicism, which existed long before Christianity, recognized and advocated the brotherhood of all mankind. And in this understanding any differences that were attained in rank and/or material wealth were rightfully regarded as merely external and temporary, and consequently each person should strive to help one another. The natural equality of all beings and inanimate objects within the visible Creation was stressed as showing the democratic character by which man should live and prosper. This certainly is not something understood or practiced by the many faith systems and politcal factions that seek to dominate man’s affairs today.
Stoic philosophy as honored in pre-Christian times had understood that man is but a small part of a divine principle. The Jewish and Christian faith sytems struggled at times with this awareness, and it led them to emphasize the rights of the poor, the underprivileged, and even acknowledge that all humans stand equal before the creative power that is personified as “God.” Unfortunately, the allowance for equal opportunity within Creation’s democratic structure even allows self-indulgence to run wild. That allowance for self-entwinement is made evident in the politcal extremism and corporate styled faith systems today that have strayed far from the democratic principles that sustains all Creation.
