Be a Spiritual Sovereign

Spiritual Sovereign
Being a Spir­i­tu­al Sov­er­eign requires that you break the chains that hold you back.

The most impor­tant change for good that any of us can make is to declare – then fol­low through – that we are a Spir­i­tu­al Sover­eign. This is the key to awak­en­ing.

Definition

A spir­i­tu­al sov­er­eign is that rare per­son who decides for them­selves what is right and true in all mat­ters. They are respect­ful of other’s opin­ions, the tra­di­tions of soci­ety, and pre­vail­ing reli­gious views. How­ev­er, they real­ize that they, and they alone, are respon­si­ble for the choic­es they make. Their deci­sions are not made accord­ing to enlight­ened self-inter­est but upon the lead­ing of Divine Light – as best they under­stand it.

A Spiritual Sovereign Chooses for Themselves

The biggest con job for most peo­ple is the self-delud­ed notion that they are exer­cis­ing free will.  Don’t get me wrong, I believe in free will.  I just notice that most peo­ple rarely use it. Pay atten­tion and you will see that most chose default modes of dai­ly liv­ing that are based more on cul­ture than on well-con­ceived per­son­al beliefs.

Peo­ple are like the malls you see across America’s land­scape. Thes malls are filled with the same stores, sell­ing the same goods, to the same eco­nom­ic class of peo­ple. In the same way, most let their reli­gions decide what is spir­i­tu­al, their pock­et­books what is wor­thy and impor­tant, their edu­ca­tion for what is worth know­ing, and their polit­i­cal par­ty for what is right for com­mu­ni­ties.  They live as homog­e­nized clones and not spir­i­tu­al sov­er­eigns.

Programmed People

You can rec­og­nize a pro­grammed per­son read­i­ly. When they com­plain about some­thing, and they com­plain a lot, they always blame oth­ers instead of assum­ing per­son­al respon­si­bil­i­ty. Ask them why they don’t change jobs, and they’ll have a mil­lion excus­es on why they stay. They blame their hus­bands, wives, chil­dren, par­ents, finances, poor choic­es, phys­i­cal health, as well as a mil­lion oth­er rea­sons why they must con­tin­ue doing some­thing that sucks their soul from them. A sec­ond way of rec­og­niz­ing a pro­grammed per­son is to lis­ten to the famil­iar­i­ty of what they say. They always agree with their polit­i­cal par­ty. They answer com­plex ques­tions with sim­ple answers pro­vid­ed to them by author­i­ta­tive peo­ple. You rarely hear any­thing unique or inno­v­a­tive from them. They are also quick to judge those who they believe don’t fol­low the rules – believ­ing that rules are more impor­tant than peo­ple.

This default mode of liv­ing is what keeps us asleep. It is designed to keep you from ques­tion­ing the author­i­ties by keep­ing you busy chas­ing mate­r­i­al goods and amus­ing your­self to death. When you suc­ceed in this style of liv­ing, your reward will be that you con­tin­ue liv­ing here, life­time after life­time, until you per­ceive the empti­ness of it all and decide to do some­thing about it.

Are You Spiritual Sovereign?

Here are some clear signs that you are a spir­i­tu­al sov­er­eign.

  • You aren’t trib­al. You believe in the rights of all peo­ple – even those despised by your coun­try. You see peo­ple before not nation­al inter­ests. Peo­ple are more impor­tant than coun­tries, laws, reli­gion, rules, and mon­ey.
  • Do no harm” is very impor­tant to you. Any law that harms anoth­er is invalid. Laws that cre­ate class­es of peo­ple that enslave oth­er social class­es are invalid. Reli­gions that claim the right to hurt some­one emo­tion­al­ly or phys­i­cal­ly because they don’t believe in par­tic­u­lar texts are invalid. Peo­ple are not excused from the laws of kar­ma just because they do what the law, their coun­try, or reli­gion tells them to do.
  • You do not fol­low rules that or vote for laws that favor one group of peo­ple over anoth­er. You sup­port people’s right to choose what is best for them.
  • You do what’s right more than what’s favor­able to you and your sit­u­a­tion.
  • You fol­low Divine Light before all else.

A Spiritual Sovereign Harmonize Energies

The sov­er­eign makes per­son­al deci­sions based upon a desire to max­i­mize the har­mo­nious ener­gy cur­rents that are fed into the human body via the sil­ver cord. Often referred to as the chakras, these ener­getic cur­rents help guide the deci­sion mak­ing of the mys­tic. A right deci­sion will feel good, makes sense, and increase one’s spir­i­tu­al vibra­to­ry state.  Poor deci­sions do not.

 A Spiritual Sovereign Breaks Traditions if Needed

Some peo­ple will fol­low their reli­gion even if it breaks their hearts. I’m sure that on the day when the Phar­isees brought the woman caught in adul­tery before Jesus, some of them must have felt bad for what they believed was about to hap­pen to her. Sure­ly, some of them must have thought, “It’s a shame we must stone this woman to death — but Moses said it so we’ve got to do it – so it must be done!” So we too, if we are not care­ful, will do things in the name of our reli­gion and faith — even if it breaks their hearts. And so many will do it with­out a thought — like telling some­one they are going to hell for not doing what they think is right – or even dis­own­ing, or threat­en­ing to dis­own, their chil­dren when they dis­cov­er they are gay.

But here’s the deal, sov­er­eigns know we are just as respon­si­ble for the harm we do in the name of reli­gion as for inten­tion­al injuries and wrongs. No one gets a pass for just fol­low­ing orders.

A Spiritual Sovereign Follows Divine Love

What is the dif­fer­ence between a spir­i­tu­al sov­er­eign and an ordi­nary self­ish per­son who does only what they want to do? Spir­i­tu­al Sov­er­eigns fol­low divine love. Their inter­ests are not self­ish; instead, they are moti­vat­ed to pur­sue the high­est form of love as they under­stand it to be. If they give to a beg­gar, they believe an inner prompt­ing leads them to do so. If they don’t give to the beg­gar – it is the same rea­son.  Love of the divine is what moti­vates a spir­i­tu­al sov­er­eign.

Conclusion

Divine Source gave humankind the great­est gift of all – free will. It takes courage to use this gift when the cul­ture has already cre­at­ed a default path for every­one. Free­dom comes only to those who are will­ing to break tra­di­tions, expec­ta­tions, reli­gious teach­ings, and even the law if nec­es­sary, to fol­low a high­er call­ing based upon the mys­ti­cal divine light.
