The passionate debates about lost rights, corruption, freedom, and responsibility is just that . . . a debate with few consequences and results unless, that is, one begins to understand the interesting dynamics of the human soul within these current debates.
The empowerment through position and mandate is very often mistaken as real authority. Authority in the current common understanding simply means that someone can tell you what to do. This fake authority, assumed through position or mandate, very often creates a strange dynamic where one must struggle to look behind the mask in order to find the human being. It is truly remarkable how many bureaucrats gain power through this anonymous process.
Connecting on the human level can expose a vulnerable side that undermines and even erodes the artificial authority that too often comes with position and mandate. The typical power play of government agents demands a detachment from their inner realm in order to overcome those moments of weakness when they have to face the despair of farmers trying to feed people, mothers trying to feed their children, and all of those others who are demanding and expecting justice and respect.
Understanding the emotional disability of many individuals in powerful positions is key if we are to find a way to co-exist without becoming frustrated or disillusioned. To accept emotional disability is a precondition for qualifying as an investigator and bureaucratic law enforcer, although the realm of criminal investigation does not necessarily attract such personalities. However, regulatory law enforcement has taken on a quasi- criminal nature, an example of which is the way people gradually become objects of interest for infringements that cut deeply into the personal realm of natural justice.
More and more, society is being pushed into the mindset of collateral “guilt until proven not guilty”, a decided reversal of the intention of one of the Constitution’s pillars.
Regulatory law has taken on it’s own destructive dynamic which requires and recruts people with emotional disability and very often a lack of inner authority.
Unless people surrender out of apathy their independence we need to make a conscious effort how to learn to resist. We need to learn how to survive this ever growing pressure of lingering threats by Government agents and self indulgent bureaucrats with an never ending thirst for power.
As strange it sounds the element of unconditional love suddenly becomes an interesting force. The practice of saying NO with love, with compassion and positive energy has become a practice of mine with surprising results.
Considering the length of some court proceedings and battles with the Government, this mindset and inner practice of peaceful and loving resistance creates a positive energy as you battle it also raises your awarness about the learning process you are going through, which takes away the adverserial nature of this battle for justice.
The incredible power of a “Positive NO” can only be understood and experienced through it’s implementation. It provides you with the wisdom when to act and when to let go.
The “positive NO” encompasses an all embracing approach to balance the powerstruggle between you and “them.” The “positive NO” creates the necessary equilibrium to turn tension into a creative process without creating victims.
There can be no victims because you managed to direct the powerstruggle from adverse energy into embrace.
The only thing left for you is to look forward to this incredible journey of real change if you have the courage.
