Sovereignty 101:Installment 3 - The Myth of Accumulation

What you see as your daily life becomes burdensome as its purpose moves further up the food chain than you.  Fulfillment is part of your every day when you have chosen a work, occupation, pastime or activity that on some level satisfies a desire or allows an expression or expansion of who you are.

Most of your time is currently spent consumed in activity that serves the purpose of maintaining your physical life.  You have to eat and desire a place to sleep.  Perhaps there are others you feel responsible for as well.  These facts alone create in you a “need” to work at something that pays you money.  This work you do, in fact and in more cases than not, serves only one goal.  That would be to fatten the pockets of someone you have never met, as well as to keep them continually supplied with this thing called “value”.

If there is one thing to do that would propel your sovereign state it would be to engage instead in work you deem purposeful and can clearly see the end result of.  This work will benefit and nourish you rather than deplete you.

As your world is structured today, you are rewarded highly for work that benefits the wealthiest among you and keeps them there.  Entire careers and lifetimes are spent in finance – a make believe place where value is arbitrarily assigned, collected and distributed. The fact that many of you desire an accumulation of such value is what keeps this industry alive and running many others.

It is a mixed up world where figures generated on dead wood signify the worth of a god.  The blinders must be removed now.  Value is not a number and unable to be arbitrarily assigned.  Value is generated from the only place able to emit anything of worth.  Value emerges from Source itself.

When you re-construct your system of hierarchy to place you at the top – the individual you, the collective you – you will find nourishment in your work and joy in your days.  This shift in your thinking will alter the fabric of your world from one of slaves serving masters to one of free individuals, alive.

Yes, change to the entire structure of commerce needs to be accomplished from the outside.  Yet until and unless you believe that you hold the only real value available – those external changes won’t be sustainable. 

Value cannot be accumulated, it exists because you do. The dollar amount stuck to anything is set by perception.  In order for your life to change, you will need to perceive clearly your worth.  That view point must be evident in your chosen thoughts, words and actions.

You are gods.  One god may appear to have more “stuff” than another – but that does equate to more power or more value.  The accumulation of “stuff”, be it gold or the land from which it is dug, is merely a game some of you like to play.  It is one of the expressions of life that in your version of things has been called “greedy”.  There is no right or wrong.  All is choice.  Each choice serves the purpose of creation – to express and experience life.

You cannot be more or less a god; you can merely imagine yourself to be.  Imagine yourself to be all that is possible – the fullest expression of you currently available.  As you walk in his shoes and as you dance in her slippers, we’ll be watching.  Powerful, individual gods will emerge from the shadows as we grasp and collectively embrace our every potential.

We are the ones we are waiting for.

A Holiday Message From The Great Dictator

A Holiday Message From The Great Dictator

Submitted by Simon Black via Sovereign Man blog,
In September 1939, six days after the United Kingdom declared war on Germany, Charlie Chaplin began filming one of his most epic films ever… and the first “talkie” for the silent film star.
It was a courageous project - the ‘Great Dictator’ directly poked fun at Adolf Hitler.
At the end of the movie, Chaplin looked into the camera and gave a stirring speech about timeless principles– peace, mutual respect, freedom from evil men who aspire to lead nations.
This did not win Chaplin any friends in Washington who were keen to maintain official neutrality.
And he paid dearly for it; the Great Dictator was the beginning of an entire decade of turbulent trouble between Chaplin and the US government.
FBI director J Edgar Hoover opened a file on Chaplin and launched a smear campaign to tarnish his public image. The mainstream media quickly jumped on board, accusing Chaplin of being a communist sympathizer.
Eventually they found an obscure law on the books as an excuse to haul him into court and put him in prison.
Chaplin won the trial… barely… but was then roped into the anti-communist witch hunts of Senator Joseph McCarthy.
In his autobiography, Chaplin sums up his troubles with the US government as follows:
“My prodigious sin was, and still is, being a nonconformist. Although I am not a Communist, I refused to fall in line by hating them. . . Secondly I was opposed to the Committee on Un-American Activities– a dishonest phrase to begin with, elastic enough to wrap around the throat and strangle the voice of any American citizen whose honest opinion is a minority one.”
Chaplin reached his breaking point when, as a British citizen, he realized that he would be effectively kicked out of the Land of the Free. As he wrote,
“Whether I re-entered that unhappy country or not was of little consequence to me. I would like to have told them that the sooner I was rid of that hate-beleaguered atmosphere the better, that I was fed up with America’s insults and moral poposity, and that the whole subject was damned boring.”
He moved his family to Switzerland and lived out the rest of his days in an idyllic setting near Geneva.
There was just one problem. The entirety of Chaplin’s substantial wealth was in the US. And he waited far too long– until he had been exiled from the country– to even think about moving some funds abroad.
His rousing speech at the end of the Great Dictator calls for a world free of violence, intimidation, and government control. Unfortunately, we don’t get to live in that world.
We live in a world where ambitious men are willing to do anything to seize absolute power… where they can regulate every aspect of our lives, from what we put in our bodies to whether we can collect rainwater.
They confiscate our hard earned wages at gunpoint. They devalue our savings. They spy, brazenly and relentlessly, on absolutely everyone. They wage senseless wars in foreign lands. They waste. They frustrate. They destroy.
This our reality. The world is beautiful. Life is beautiful. But the leaders of humankind surely make it all damned hard to appreciate sometimes.
That’s why it makes so much sense for everyone to have a little bit of insurance– to make sure that we don’t make the same mistake as Chaplin and hold the entirety of our savings and livelihood in the same country in which we live… and one that is clearly on a downward trend.
This is our consumate focus at Sovereign Man. And with each passing day, the reasons become even more obvious. We’re going to be in for a hell of a 2014.
And now, without further ado, please enjoy Mr. Chaplin’s final speech from the Great Dictator:
