Excerpt from "Families of the Heart"
"The Future of Politics"
A huge chunk of humanity is suddenly beginning to let go of the notion that answers to collective problems can find lasting resolution through outward deliberations and agreements. They cannot. All involvement in what you call "politics" is, at its root, a form of conspiracy. Though this latter expression is often upon your lips today, it surely is not new.
And the same dynamic applies whether you are negotiating with human ambassadors and politicians, or with Ascended Masters, who you feel are energizing "the peace movement to end all peace movements." The results will be the same. Enduring relief does not come through separation-based agreements. Or, if it does, it brings with it something you will probably need to address later. Are you familiar with the phrase "today's solution is tomorrow's problem?"
Through involvement in politics, you create a space called "society," where you form agreements with "them" (whoever "they" are).....that each of you will subjugate your spontaneous, authentic, in-the-moment behavior to a set protocol of expression (or repression)---to the end that you may live peacefully within a fabricated, postured environment that looks good, sounds good, but inevitably ends up feeling quite empty and sad.
You cannot resolve personal unrest and disappointment by focusing outside yourself. You only delay the inevitable moment when you must finally examine your own inner void and seek your own answers. More than ever, your governments are demonstrating this, as they design programs and attempt to create what they call "foreign policy." My Dear Friends, if a situation is already classified as "foreign" to you, how can you even imagine you would ever be able to create a "policy" that can address it?
Earthly governments are now becoming quite inhuman--the last bastion of tradition and a belief in "objectivity" that still exists among you. But their supposed "objectivity" has objectives of its own, not the least of which is self-preservation. In a sense, the year 2004 began to show you some striking parallels between governmental control in society and ego control within an individual human. More and more, you will find these two viewpoints mirroring each other.
For some time, institutions of government will continue. But underneath it all, humanity is beginning to lose interest in them--choosing to focus upon creating a host of paraprofessional self-help organizations instead. The people of Planet Earth are growing up. They have stopped looking to federal or state "parents" to do things for them. Your current model of "home schooling" is just the beginning of this trend. Soon, it will spread into nearly every aspect of life.
