Declaration of Independence

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men…”

Today I wish to approach aspects of this declaration of independence that is commonly quoted, without speakers exerting any powers of objectivity to grasp the implications of the deeper meaning. For, whether or not we wish to admit it, this document derives its relevance only by subordinating itself to the spiritual reality of the Universe.

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal”

The word “self-evident” assumes a basic level of agreement and understanding of objective reality. Hence the founding fathers all agreed on a certain premise of knowledge. The premise was that all men are created equal. Stop! The word says “created” not “born”. The body is born, but the soul of man is created. Hence the self-evident knowledge is that the human spirit within the earth body was created equal. So the foundation of their earthly association was the knowledge that the human spirit was created equal, not the earth body. But if they are in common agreement about this premise, the question arises: From what knowledge, insight and revelation is their premise derived? To make this assertion, it must arise from a knowledge, but what knowledge gives man the certainty that the human spirit itself was spiritually created equal? Besides esoteric works, I will venture to assume their supposition was based on religious texts, i.e. mainly the Bible’s description of the creation of man. If not, perchance just an intuition that infers this position, but without concrete all-encompassing knowledge to justify it.

So the founding fathers view of man is first off as a spiritual being. His relevance and purpose is only derived from this position, so the entire framework of the constitution is subordinate to and derived from spiritual concepts.

“that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights”

For this human spirit to be “created equal”, there must logically be a Creator that endows him with certain abilities. So the declaration of independence tries to understand man’s relation with the Creator, the abilities derived therein, and thus to fulfill it accordingly. You can then see how pitiful and mentally abhorrent are the masses who try to extricate the concept of the Almighty from daily life today, who try to make life secular without any anchorage in the spiritual. Being created by the Creator and behind endowed with something should form the basis of any approach of earthly law. It is clearly evident that they feel their justification is based solely on the powers and rights man derives from His Creator. Thus this declaration is an indirect attempt to honor the Will of the Lord, Nature’s Creator…God.

“that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men…”

If you consider carefully, the rights the government is supposed to protect are those rights that the Creator endowed man with. So the respect of man’s rights by the law is really an indirect way to respect the mandate of the Creator through the abilities He endowed man with. Do you follow? So a person is valid as a human only to the degree he is associated with the mandate of the Creator. Our rights are to be secured only because that is what the founding fathers believed was the mandate of the Creator. So we are not individually some valuable person because we think we are. No. We are only valuable to the degree that the decree of the Creator can be brought to fulfillment within us through our abilities He endowed us with. It is the rights bestowed by the Creator that the declaration seeks to fulfill. It is the Will of the Creator it seeks to obey, not some human volition and opinion.

…..So when a person today (whether lawyer, citizen, politician, professor, or businessman) tries to interpret this document as a standalone earthly legal mandate devoid of spiritual existence, you see how incredibly foolish and narrow-minded they make themselves look. For it is the Will of the Lord it tries to fulfill. But since it can only be referred to as an interpretation of the Will of the Light, it follows that the Declaration of Independence and Constitution must naturally be subordinate to any knowledge that brings a greater clarity about the Lord’s Will. Naturally. If this knowledge is not “self-evident” to anyone, it means they are not in alignment with the original concept of the documents establishment, meaning their secular views before the intention of this document is quite null and void. For we have rights only because the Creator granted us those, not because in and of ourselves we are entitled to it! It is the inherent abilities of the human spirit that earthly law is meant to be an executive arm for. So whenever earthly law does not further the Will of the Creator, it thus deviates from what is natural, from what was intended, and thus from what is right.

In the frenzy of modern pursuits, it is amazing these simple facts can be so overlooked. We are so anxious to efface the Will of God from life that we are so willing to disregard basic concepts that point to this Will. Naturally, I do not mean this religiously. But the only conclusion you can objectively draw is that the US and its laws must submit to any higher spiritual knowledge that brings man closer to the fulfillment of the Lord’s Will. Either that or confusion, chaos, breakdown, and inevitable collapse is bound to ensue.
