Ascended Master Lord Lanto, October 30, 2011 through Kim Michaels. This dictation was given as the messenger was driving in a car towards Riga, Latvia.
Lord Lanto I AM, and I come to anchor a special flame here in the Latvian capital of Riga, in order to magnify the Latvian people’s potential to play a role in the Baltic region and also among the three Baltic countries.
There are, of course, different ways to classify countries, and one way – and certainly not the only way – to look at the three Baltic countries is as representing the threefold flame of power, wisdom and love. Thus, as my beloved colleague and brother, Master MORE, has already expressed so eloquently, the Lithuanian people clearly carry the blue flame. And for those who know the Latvian people, it is also clear that they carry the yellow plume—that has the potential to become wisdom.
Yet in order to be allowed to blossom into that potential, it is indeed necessary for the Latvian people to realize, that they face a delicate challenge in their nation. That challenge is how to be decisive enough to develop a clear vision for the future of their nation, while at the same time avoiding becoming too intellectual and linear in their thinking.
How to build a country without leaders?
Those of you who know something about the history of the Baltic countries, and about many of the other countries that were occupied by the Soviet Union, will know that in the beginning years of the Soviet occupation after the Second World War, virtually the entire elite of these countries disappeared. They were either liquidated in their own countries, or in most cases loaded onto cattle cars and taken to concentration camps in various parts of what was then the Soviet Union but is today Russia. Thus, the challenge faced by all three Baltic countries, and by all former Soviet republics, is how to build a country, when the very people who had the vision and the initiative to build a country have disappeared.
Of course, you will see, that immediately after the Soviet occupation ended, there were indeed people who stepped forward. And thus, it is clear from this observation, that even though the Soviet Union tried to brainwash and program people to be “good communist citizens” – meaning they would never take an initiative, would never question the system, would never question authority – there were still many people who did not buy into this programming, but immediately grabbed the opportunity to attain freedom and self-determination, when they could see that it could be done without major bloodshed.
The Latvian tradition for seeking peaceful solutions
Thus, certainly, the nation of Latvia has a tradition for peaceful action, for being peaceful. And it is important to recognize and acknowledge this desire to look for peaceful solutions. Anyone who does look for peaceful solutions, will of course not be so easily polarized towards either of the extremes that are always present in any issue. And thus, while you see that the Lithuanian people can more easily become polarized towards black and white thinking – as is exemplified by the Catholic church and its influence – you also see that the Latvian people do not have this tendency nearly to the same degree.
In fact, they have it to a very low degree, compared to many other nations, and this indeed gives them a potential to step in and mediate in difficult negotiations. Yet it must also be recognized, that the flip side of the coin, so to speak, is that those who are more balanced or fair-minded also have a tendency to be indecisive.
For it is indeed so, that those who are balanced are balanced because they can often see both sides of an issue. And therefore, they are good at understanding the arguments for or against this or that position, this or that theory. Yet, when this is not balanced by a certain amount of blue flame and the pink flame of love, then it can lead to a confused state, where there is no clear vision, because many options seem to be equally valid or perhaps no option seems to be truly valid.
And therefore, this leads to indecisiveness, where a nation fails to actually define a clear structure for how it will function, ranging from clear laws, a clear constitution or even the willingness to pay taxes in order to give the government a solid economic foundation for providing public services—rather than having to finance this through loans that cannot be sustained in the long run.
And so it should be obvious, then, that these signs can be clearly seen in the recent history of Latvia, especially what happened after the financial crisis hit and the bubble economy, that had been built in the preceding years, known as the Baltic Tiger, collapsed, as it was destined to do from the beginning.
And thus, you will also see, that because of the ability to argue convincingly for or against an issue, the Latvian people were willing to argue convincingly – at least to themselves – that the economy would not collapse. And thus, they were more surprised when it did collapse, than they might have been, if they had not had this more extreme tendency to argue for or against any issue without truly being willing to recognize, that there is always some position that is – while not necessarily an absolute truth – certainly the better course of action for this particular nation, given the culture, and the history, and the psychology of the people.
The threefold flame of the Baltic countries
For it is, of course, not so, that there is only one course of action that all nations should follow. Each nation has an individuality, has a culture of its own. And thus, each nation must find its own way,. And therefore, we are not in any way trying to raise up a standard that all nations should follow—for we leave that to the fallen beings.
And of course, it should be recognized, that the fallen beings on earth have an insatiable desire for power. And this desire is not easily fulfilled in a small nation, which is why you indeed see, both in Europe and on a world scale, that there are fewer fallen beings incarnated in the smaller nations. And this, of course, is precisely what gives the smaller nations an important role to play in bringing peace, cooperation and balance on a larger scale.
Thus, the flame that I anchor is indeed a flame that can enhance the Latvian people’s natural tendency to be able to see through varios smokescreens and issues raised by the serpentine mind and the duality consciousness. Yet it must be balanced, it must be balanced by the willingness to make decisions and by the love that gives you an inner sense of what is right, even though you cannot always argue for it in an intellectual, linear way.
And thus, you will see that it is no coincidence that Latvia is in between Estonia and Lithuania. For the Lithuanian people have the blue flame and the drive in abundance, but the Estonian people have the love flame—even though few of them recognize this as being so. And thus, the three Baltic nations could learn much from each other—if they were willing to talk together in a more open manner.
And of course, we of the ascended masters quite clearly realize the dilemma that the Baltic countries are in. After 50 years of brutal Soviet repression and occupation, they have now finally won their freedom as independent countries. And so, when you have such a history, it is not easy to sit down around the table and negotiate merging the three Baltic countries into one nation. This we clearly see, and thus we point to an alternative. And it is, indeed, what has been the theme for these dictations that have ringed the Baltic sea with a ring of spiritual fire.
The alternative is that instead of merging nations into one, so that the old nations cease to exist, you create a region. And this allows the individual nations, at least for the foreseeable future, to retain their independence, to retain their national characteristics, their languages. And this is indeed the vision that I anchor here, and that we have anchored wherever we have anchored flames in the nations that straddle the Baltic sea.
For it is a possibility that these nations can form a region, that can become a model of what can happen in other areas of the world, where there are geographical characteristics that make it feasible for countries to merge, in a spirit of cooperation, into a region while retaining their individuality, that often has a strong emotional resonance with the people. And thus, we propose the establishment of such regions, before taking the more drastic step of merging nations, so that some nations no longer exist.
The international power elite created the Iron Curtain
This, of course, is not to say, that this is the only course. For there are indeed some nations that could and will benefit from being merged with others, or even being split up into one or several regions. Nevertheless, the vision we give for the Baltic region is indeed one of cooperation across national borders and boundaries. It is one that will bring together East and West, and that will truly accelerate the process of merging East and West that has been going on since the Iron Curtain came down.
For truly, as we have mentioned before, this was an artificial division of the European continent. And it must be stated bluntly, that this division clearly was not in the better interest of the people. It was designed and perpetrated by the international power elite, who at the time had a strong influence on governments in both the Soviet Union, England and the United States. And thus, what happened at the Malta Conference, between Stalin, Churchill and Roosevelt was indeed not in any way the design of the ascended masters.
It was the design of the fallen beings, to divide and thereby weaken Europe, and thereby delay the process of unification and cooperation, that is indeed the design of the ascended masters, and has been so since Saint Germain took physical embodiment for the purpose of establishing a United States of Europe. Again, his attempts back then were thwarted by the fallen beings – the kings and the international elite – that had already then begun to think that it was able to run the world behind the scenes, without ever being noticed and therefore held accountable by the people.
The financial crisis was an accident by design
And so, it must be stated also that the financial crisis was not just an accident that happened. It was indeed an accident by design, for it was the international power elite that again precipitated the bubble economy in their attempt to delay the process of a unification of Europe. For they knew that by artificially pumping money into some of the new developing economies in the eastern european countries, then they could precipitate a crash that would delay the true unification and cooperation between East and West.
For you see – with all we have said about the duality consciousness – that the power elite must seek to create these artificial divisions wherever possible. And certainly, the Soviet occupation of eastern Europe was by their design. And even powerful people in the United States thought that this would be in the interest of the U.S., in order to prevent a united Europe from becoming stronger economically and politically, even militarily, than the United States.
For back then, the leaders of the United States thought they were so far ahead of the Soviet Union, that they could hold them in check. Yet they did not realize how the power elite behind the scenes manipulated events, so that the Soviet Union very quickly could develop nuclear weapons and therefore attain, not necessarily military parity with the United States, but certainly a strength that guaranteed that the Cold War would go on for decades and decades.
Just imagine, what would have happened if the eastern European nations had remained independent after the Second World War. Just imagine how much greater abundance there would have been in these nations, if personal initiative had not been destroyed by the Soviet brainwashing machine. Just imagine how the attempts of unification that you have seen in western Europe with the EU, could have spread East of the Iron Curtain decades ago. And how by now, the poverty that you see in the eastern european nations could have been completely unknown, as these nations would have been almost on parity economically with the western nations.
This would have been a great advantage, not only to the continent of Europe but to the world as a whole. For Europe has the potential to be the balancing factor between East and West. Thus, it was indeed the fallen beings who saw the necessity of precipitating the Bolshevik revolution, so that the Soviet Union would be formed and thereby Russia would be shut out from becoming part of Europe, as it was envisioned by Peter the Great so long ago.
The need to speak out about Soviet occupation
And so, you see how there are so many of these underlying currents of deception and manipulation, that need to be understood and exposed. Thus, the flame that I anchor is indeed also meant to stir up the recognition, not only in Latvia but in many other countries, of the need to talk openly about the Soviet occupation of eastern Europe and other former Soviet republics.
For although there have been attempts by a few to speak about this topic, it certainly has not yet reached the level that is needed for these countries to transcend their past. And thus, I therefore say: “There is a great need to speak out, and to write about what it was like to live under the yoke of Soviet occupation, what it was like to grow up as a young person under Soviet rule and what it was like, then, to gain freedom from this oppression.” This is especially a potential in the Baltic countries, and Latvia has an important role to play because of the sizable Russian minority in this country.
It should be noted, in the recent election, that the Russian people in Latvia are almost better organized and more decisive than the Latvian people themselves. This, of course, is not to say that we encourage the Latvian people to now form an opposition to the Russian people. We rather encourage them to find that delicate balance, where the Latvian people become willing to talk about Soviet times with brutal honesty, so that even the Russian people in Latvia will be faced with the opportunity to choose, whether they will distance themselves from the Soviet past.
For indeed, that is the only way that the Russian people will ever transcend the Soviet past. It is not realistic to expect that the Russian people in Russia will begin to analyze the Soviet past, recognize the errors of Soviet times and then decide to transcend them. But it is realistic to hope that the Russian people, the Russian-speaking people who still live in former Soviet republics, will indeed be willing to recognize the effect that the Soviet occupation had on these countries—and therefore will be willing to listen to the people who were the primary targets of this oppression.
This, then, gives the possibility that the Russian people can develop compassion, empathy and understanding for how the actions of the Soviet Union affected other people—and for that matter even affected themselves. And this could then – potentially – have an impact on Russia itself, and cause the Russians in Russia to be willing to wrestle with the past—as has not yet happened. As you even see young people who know virtually nothing about the Soviet past and have no desire to know. For they do not want to be bothered with thinking about the errors of the past.
Yet what then is to prevent you from repeating them? Nothing! For as Mother Mary said in Poland, unless the people say “Enough is enough,” there will be a power elite, who will be willing to take things one step further towards the extreme.
Everything is a potential for growth
Thus, I have anchored the light that is meant to be anchored. I have given the impetus and the vision that is necessary for all former Soviet republics – but especially the Baltic countries – to start talking more openly about Soviet times, and openly seeking to learn from the effects of communism upon the human spirit and upon a society.
For this is a lesson that needs to be learned in the West as well. For the West has very little understanding of what really happened to people under communist rule. And this is necessary, if Europe is to avoid moving towards a system that could also become oppressive, because it is ruled by the fallen beings. And they will seek to do what they always do, if the people are not alert.
And thus, you see, nothing is wasted, for everything it is an opportunity for growth. This is not to say, that we do not fully understand and empathize with the suffering of the people who were under the Soviet yoke for so long. But we also look forward and say, given that this did happen and that it cannot be undone in time – at least in the past – how can it be undone in the future, so that the people can transcend the consciousness and therefore move forward.
Yet you cannot transcend what you cannot see, and you cannot see what you are not willing to look at and openly talk about. For there are many people that need to give input, for the process of healing and transcendence that has the best potential of taking root in the Baltic countries.
Thus, I Lanto, am grateful for this opportunity, and I – as do all of us – look forward to the future, to see what will transpire and develop in the Baltic region. Lanto, I AM.
