At this point it would probably not be productive for me to continue this discussion.

Greetings to everyone – people of all nations. I speak out now about the future, because right now the future seems bleak for most of us. Our world is seriously at risk, many of us are in despair, and many of us suffer. And by now, many of you know some of the reasons why.
So the question is this: Since there is so much corruption and unfairness in the world, and since the misleading forces of greed and self-interest use their wealth and power to their own benefit and to the detriment of the great majority, what do we do about it?
I know that most of you feel powerless. Some of you feel helpless and hopeless, some of you are just apathetic, and many of you are angry. After all, the protests demonstrated in many countries were all fruitless, and in most instances they were dangerous. So, as our situation worsens, I understand why there is a growing search for a conquering hero.
But, I am not a warrior -- unless you consider that the pen will ultimately prove mightier than the sword. I am just a messenger, and a counselor who tells you that you do not need anyone playing Warlord, or King, or God or Savior, because only the eternal One is the Savior, which by any other name is God, The Holy One. And its Spirit of truth will liberate and empower all of us, because it is within all of us.
When you realize that, and what it means for us, you will come to realize this fact: We, the people, must liberate and empower ourselves. And to do that we need to establish good and fair governments that will actually be of the people, by the people, and for the people. But right now we don’t have that.
What we have, as you well know, are governments of the rich, by the rich, and for the rich. But we the people can change that, and we can do it legally and peacefully, especially in America, thanks to the Constitution which has provisions for us to do that in Article 5. And we can establish good and fair government that will promote the general welfare, as America’s Founders intended, and use the common wealth for the common good.
Of course that will take a change of heart, mind and attitude, on everyone’s part. And it will help if everyone realizes that we are all created equal in the sight of God, which is really the Great Spirit-Parent of us all. We are all members of one diverse family that we call humanity. And we should celebrate our diversity — rather than use it as an excuse to take on attitudes of superiority and judge others as inferior, as so many misguided people do.
I tell you that because many of you are listening to the wrong people – to self-righteous people, self-important people, bigoted people, hypocritical people, and greedy people who are very deceptive — all of whom think they are superior, whether it’s because of their wealth or religion or nationality or political party or race. But I tell you that people who take on such attitudes of superiority are obstacles to human progress, and human evolution.
Now rather than listen to them, I ask you to seek the Spirit of truth that is within you, because the Spirit of truth comes not to condemn but to educate; not to punish but to correct; and not to destroy but to save.
I serve the Spirit of truth, and I ask you to join me in doing so — regardless of your religion, and whether you are religious or not. After all, the Spirit of truth is universal, and the Spirit of truth is also the Spirit of love, the Spirit of freedom, the Spirit of justice, and the Spirit of Peace – all of which we so desperately need now.
