Politics and government today is just TOTAL ignorance. The entire concept of government today is so far from real governance that these people think they are governing when in reality they are just pawns of the collective consciousness of the nation running after votes and campaign dollars. Give me your vote and I’ll rule. What nonsense.
Real power of government is the power within Nature’s government. The “philosopher kings” used to know what that meant, from ancient times there was the solar dynasties that ruled from the power of their being. The foremost example was Raam in the Ramayana.
People (including those pretenders in “government”) don’t know what real rulership is. It isn’t dictating orders or starting wars or writing laws or deciding this or that for others. Any brute can do that.
Rulership comes from what one knows and has harnessed from within, having pierced through and cleared the fog of stress to cognize within one’s own awareness the very same dynamism and silence that governs the universe. This is not a philosophical conclusion, it is a state of seeing and being and living the power of life. It’s plugging into reality. It is aligning one’s awareness to the laws of nature within, not opposing it like so many are doing today. The lofty philosophical descriptions are derived from direct experience.
By becoming fully aligned with natural law within, one spontaneously choses right action and naturally uplifts everyone around one’s environment. That is what such awakening to one’s own inner being bestows, and that is real rulership. One radiates truth, radiates the light of life, and people are naturally drawn to that power of life.
The true definition of rulership is the ability to do less and accomplish more—thoughts get quickly fulfilled; do nothing and accomplish everything—just by being fully aligned with one’s nature is enough for nature to fulfill your intentions before you even have them. That is life worth living. That is Self rule. That is what we should be developing in the educational system, because it would eventually free future generations from the awful political / social / religious / economic mess that they are being given now.
