3 - Attachment Of The Leaders (And People) To A Small Portion Of The
Earth, A Special Culture, Group, Religion, Ideology, etc.:
<1>Anything that separates human from human
will create suffering. <2>In truth suffering, chaos,
confusion, etc., all come from division and separation.
<3>Therefore any one ideology, attachment to
a small portion of the earth, or to promote only a special group,
religion, culture, etc., are all bound to cause suffering.
<4>This can only be cured by
the mind and being able to see that all little groups, cultures,
races, etc., are of a whole, and each of them are necessary and
planned to help in this one body.
<5>To achieve this goal a worldwide
government and a universal point of view is needed. <6>Humans
have to realize that they are so interdependent that they either
should learn to share and co-exist, or they will all perish.
4 - Lack
Of A Body As An Overseer Of The System:
<7>A body which would be out of the system,
but familiar with how it works, is necessary. This body which was
mentioned above is called "The
Elder Body" in our system, and would emerge from the system.
<8>Therefore, those who would be
Elders are very familiar
with the system. But because they are not engaged in its activities
and are only its observers, they can easily see in what direction it
is headed and are able to correct it.
<9>This lack of such a body in the present
systems is another reason for their failure. In the present systems
there is no knowledgeable person whose whole concern would be to
observe and direct the system by his suggestions, while these
suggestions are accepted because those in the system respect the
opinion of these
<10>This gain of respect is the greatest task
for each Elder in the observing body (Elders),
because they can only give suggestions that may be accepted because
of this respect.
5 - Lack Of The Presence Of Spiritual Considerations (Putting God
Out Of The System):
<11>As it has been suggested throughout our
teachings, one of the reasons for human failure to bring peace,
tranquility, equity, justice, etc., on earth is because we have put
God out of our lives and government.
<12>The phrase, "separation of church and
state" actually should have read, "separation of dogma and state."
<13>Those who brought this great realization as a part of the
constitutions of some nations did not intend to imply, "separation
of God and state," or "a
state without God."
<14>Any ideal that separates human from human
based on a set of beliefs, inspired under the name of religion, or
any other name, is considered dogma. No such forces should become
the dominating class in government, or be supported by it
<15>Also as it is explained all through our
who bring these ideas in order to exploit the masses also should not
be allowed to dominate the government. <16>States which are
run by the clergy or priest class, for the reason above, will
eventually become dictatorships, and the masses will be exploited in
the name of religion.
<17>That is why in our system, although the
spiritual values are considered, the priest class is not a
dominating force. <18>Also the Brahmin class, it is hoped,
will not become dogmatic. It will bring
God into the government,
but will not use religion as a tool to exploit the masses. <19>True
spiritual experience and/or realization is an individual
God. It can never be
<20>These described shortcomings of the
present systems, combined with individual shortcomings, are the
cause for the present state of the earth.
<21>That is why not only is a reform of the existing social
orders necessary but individuals also have to be prepared and
<22>These two interdependent ingredients of
social make-up (individuality and collectivity) will be modified
simultaneously. As more individuals become aware of the necessity
for reform, the new set-ups will form, and as these set-ups evolve,
more individuals become aware, progress, and become involved in
creating the reformed order. This process will continue until the
desired environment is created.
<23>The system which is presented on the
following pages, plus the rest of our teachings, is aimed to
eliminate the problems above and also to bring that unity which will
help humanity out of this great suffering based upon division.
<24>In the suggested system, a process has
been designed in which each leader would emerge from the very bottom
of society. In this process, their true intentions and abilities
would be known. Therefore only those who are truly equipped with all
the abilities to lead others toward harmony, equity, justice and
well-being, will emerge.
<25>In this system also, another group of
leaders would be elected by mass vote. This would be done to bring a
balance into the system. By these elected persons from outside of
the system, fresh and new ideas can be brought to the top of the
leadership. This will prevent the system from becoming rigid and
bureaucratic. Therefore, it will not become a field of domination of
few having all the powers, or a system that requires some rigid
rituals or special manners to reach the top. This will leave room
for unorthodox leaders to be able also to influence the direction of
the leadership by their progressive ideas.
<26>One more important point can be made:
This system is for humanity and the New Order of The Ages to come.
However, there will be those who will help to bring this system to
the earth, establish it, and help its continuation.
<27>They are those who are on earth but not of it.
