Ascended Master Hilarion, February 12, 2011 through Kim Michaels. At the National Archives Building, Washington, D.C.
Hilarion I AM. The Chohan of the fifth ray of higher vision. Thus, I am here to anchor the Flame of Higher Vision over this building of the National Archives, which houses some of the foundational documents of this nation, and thereby of the principles of modern democracy in its present form.
First and foremost, of course, the Declaration of Independence, signed by fifty courageous people, who were willing to risk their lives and their earthly fortunes for the sake of manifesting a higher vision, a vision of a higher society, a higher form of government. Nevertheless, what could be brought forth at the time – in that fateful year, 1776 – was indeed only what could be brought forth given the level of humankind’s collective awareness at that time. And thus, there is indeed relevance, as we have already said, in questioning the very foundations of modern democracy. As well as the Omega aspect of how well modern democracy is actually functioning, in terms of doing what is said in the Declaration of Independence: securing the rights of the people.
Do democracies secure the rights of the people?
Are modern democratic governments truly securing the rights of the people? Or have they allowed themselves to become undermined or partially controlled by special interests, the interests of the few, the interests of the elite? And so, there is a need for a debate. Is a democracy supposed to take care of the interests of the majority of the people, given their level of consciousness, so that a democracy at any time out-pictures the collective consciousness of a majority of the people? Or is a democracy supposed to challenge the majority to continually come up higher in consciousness, so that both the people and the nation itself can manifest a higher state than what is currently manifest?
And thus, of course, you see, that when you are willing to fulfill the Alpha requirement, you can see that there is no ultimate vision that is possible on earth. For as the collective consciousness is raised, and the level – the range of consciousness that is possible on earth – is therefore also raised, there is a need to reach for a still higher vision. And you need to continue to do so on an indefinite basis, until the earth reaches the ascension point. And even then, of course, after the ascension point, there is continued growth.
Is any truth self-evident to all people?
Take a look a this Declaration of Independence: “We hold these truths to be self-evident.” Indeed, a bold statement, when you consider the fact, that there are 144 different levels of consciousness possible on earth. Is it realistic to say, that a truth that seems self-evident at a certain level of consciousness will seem equally self-evident several levels of consciousness below?
Can those who are currently at, say, the 77th level of consciousness, can they really allow themselves to believe, that those who are at the 5th level of consciousness will see as self-evident the truth, that these people think is obvious? As we explain in the new book, a new co-creator first comes into embodiment on earth at the 48th level of consciousness. This is the level where you have some sense, that there is something beyond yourself, the self that you use to express yourself in the material realm.
At this point, you have not yet created a separate self. So the choice is: will you accelerate from where you start, and keep going up from the 48th level towards the 144th level, or will you choose to decelerate by going into the duality consciousness and the illusions of creating a separate self, that can act without seeking attunement with your own higher self—or any higher vision or principles to guide you, but only letting yourself be guided by the fact, that you define your own truth?
For do you not see, that when you go into duality, you fulfill the prophecy given in the Book of Genesis? You have taken the forbidden fruit, so to speak, and you have now become as a “god” who knows good and evil, in the sense that you define what you think is good and evil based on your present level of consciousness. And so, can you not see, that anyone who is below the 48th level of consciousness has defined his or her personal truth, possibly by accepting a truth defined by the false leaders, namely the fallen beings in embodiment?
Yet nevertheless, each person has his or her personal vision of what is real and unreal. And therefore, when you speak a truth that seems self-evident from above the 48th level, well, that truth will not seem self-evident to those who are below the 48th level. And thus, indeed, the truth that is expressed in the Declaration of Independence was given from the 77th level of consciousness, quite a bit higher than the 48th level where new co-creators start.
And thus, is it not obvious that for anyone below the 48th level of consciousness, it will not be self-evident, that all men are created equal? It will not be self-evident, that all human beings are endowed by their creator with unalienable rights; it will not be self-evident what those rights are. For indeed, those who are below the 48th level of consciousness may claim to believe in a God, but it is not a God that is transcendent; it is a god that is defined based on their own level of consciousness.
