Call for Revolution – Russell Brand

By | October 28th, 2013|Disillusioned, Movements, New World Order, Our views, Spiritual Warriors, Unity|

After watching this video it prompted me to take a break from my mission to create a self sufficient business structure that would give me the platform to do exactly what Russell is calling for…”CHANGE”. Russell is on point and the amazing thing is he is so eloquent with his words, they roll of his tongue and the thought process is well thought out and deliberated words that seem to be directly expelled from the source of us as One.

Russell is for all intense and purposes playing his part in the change…

The song from Moby comes to mind “We are all made from Stars”.

We are growing in numbers and growing in speed as someone who has had a deep epiphany to this awakening message I spend every spare moment thinking about how we could put together a actionable plan to take this awakening to the world.

With trepidation so as not to single myself for any glory my message amongst the many is to take the message and first bring change to yourself, then a Country, thereby present the alternative workable solution to which one can invite the World.

We need to take this system and use it against it self, we have the technology and we have the ability to put in safeguards to stop history repeating the failings of socialistically tainted movements. We can create an alternative, the ideas are there, we just need group purpose.

Observation…

By | January 17th, 2013|Movements, New World Order, Our views|

Fluid social change can only materialise when two circumstances are met.

One:
The human value system, which consists of our comprehension and beliefs, must be updated and changed through education and thoughtful introspection.

Two:
The environment surrounding that value system must change to support the new world view. The interaction between a person’s value system and their environment is what influences human behaviour.
For example, in our culture, “ethics” is really is a matter of degree, for our social system promotes and rewards competition and self-interest. This perspective doesn’t just “lead” to aberrant behaviour… it creates and promotes it directly. Corruption is the norm in our society and most people do not see this, for since the society supports this behaviour, it is considered right and normal… or accepts it as a matter of degree.

Given this understanding, there is a fallacy that has emerged where certain groups are deemed “corrupt” and everyone else is “good”. This is the age old “us and them” practically and “evil and good spiritually” world view which has no basis empirically, for it is, again, all a matter of degree.
For example, there is a large movement of people who constantly talk about “The New World Order” and this notion that there is an elite group of people who have been trying to take over the world for a long time and have manipulated society in various ways to further their goals.
This, of course, is true to a certain extent.

BUT, the failure of awareness is that this “group” is not a group at all. It is a tendency it is a trait of history propagating it self.

If you took out all the people at the top who are engaged in global hegemonic rule, it would simply be a matter of time before another group stepped in to seek the same ambition. Therefore, it isn’t the individual people or groups that are the problem. It is the conditions upon which those people have been accustomed and indoctrinated by. Of course, many argue against this view with the escapist notion that it is “human nature” that causes this competition and need for dominance. This is unsupported by the facts. In reality, we are in this existence nearly a clean slate when we are born, it is our environment that shapes who we are and how we behave.

Therefore, in order for TRUE change to occur, we must spend less time battling the products of this sick social structure and more time trying to change the root causes. As difficult and daunting as it may be to think this way, it is the only way our world will change for the better.

Psychology

Psychology is often defined as “The science that deals with mental processes and behaviours”.
In the modern day, there are basically two prevailing schools of thought. ‘Geneticists’ and ‘Behaviourists’… the old notion of “nature vs nurture.”
The Geneticists are inclined to think that human behaviour is derived from heredity and instinct. Often on the news, reports detail how some study claims to find the ‘genetic predisposition’ ‘to being republican’ or ‘smoking cigarettes’. This supports the world view that we are ‘hardwired’ in some way and that even subtle nuances of behaviour, such as an inclination for addiction, is genetic or “instinctual” in some way.

The Behaviourists, on the other hand, see the human being as a product of conditioning, as based on the environmental exposure of that person. Therefore, the actions of a person have a source that is derived from experience or a triggered train of thought, brought on by a learned understanding. The mechanism of action/belief therefore is sourced in learning, not heredity or instinct.

Which is more relevant? Obviously, both views are relevant in certain ways. Our interest in surviving and reproducing is imprinted/genetic in some way, as it is directly associated with fundamental survival. However, the means by which survival is obtained is entirely based on the social conditioning of that person. If a person grows up in a scarce, poverty stricken environment, with limited access to employment, they will have more of a propensity to engage in illegal activity to survive… more so, then say a middle class person who has basic needs met.

On the other side of the spectrum, if a person with great wealth has grown up in an elitist family and is thus conditioned into thinking that his or her wealth/class serves as a status symbol, they might often exploit those who work for them or perform illegal activities to conform to the identity and social arrogance they think is real.

The bottom line is that it is environmental conditioning that really affects 99% of our actions, and all diligent behaviour studies have proven this time and time again.

People become alcoholics not because they have a genetic predisposition, but because of the influence of their parents or friends. If you abuse a child, very often they grow up to abuse other children. When the mass media promotes a certain idea in society, such as “terrorism”, the public is conditioned into believing this is true and a real threat, regardless of reality. The fact is, we are emergent, vulnerable organisms and are always undergoing influence, conditioning and change to a certain degree.
That ‘degree’ is largely influenced by the social/ideological identifications which many have been conditioned to think are immutable. This particular state of awareness is where paralysis comes in, for there is nothing in nature to support the conclusion that anything we think about today will not be outdated in the future.

Fritz Pearls once said that “The human species is the only species that has the ability to interfere with their own growth”. This is an important perspective, for our belief systems, which we think we must keep to support our identities, our individuality which stands in the way of new, changing understandings, personal growth, and spiritual enlightenment.
The most dominant institutions which perpetuate this paralysis seem to be Theistic Religion and The Monetary System.

Theistic religion promotes a fixed World view, with a “faith” based understanding that rejects logic and new information. It holds on the the predetermined and often interpreted view by self-righteous men of history.
The Monetary System (in all countries) is based on Competition for Labour and thus Labour for Money. Very simply, the “competitive edge” can only be sustained through self-perpetuation, and self-perpetuation/self interest naturally leads to a static institution which prefers not to change, for it threatens the survival of that business, government or the like. This is unsustainable.

Sociology

Sociology is often defined as “The study of society; human social interaction”.
This field considers social structures, both Cognitive and Material. An example of a Cognitive Social Structure is the established institution of religion and how its operation affects the collective awareness. For instance, Prolife Christians share a disposition that human “life” is a separate element of nature and that killing an unborn foetus is wrong. Concurrently, the competition based monetary system has proponents putting forth ideas such as how competition is the most productive social state that humans can engage in.

Material Social Structures, on the other hand, are very obvious and they exist in the form of corporations and governments, each having a strong influence on society. Of course, all Material Social Structures bleed over into the cognitive realm, for they always have an ideology behind them.
A common sociological issue has to do with “Human Nature” and its effect in a collective sense. For instance, most people have been taught that human beings are naturally competitive with each other, along with the assumption that social stratification or hierarchy is also a “natural human tendency”.
This is a fallacy.

In human society you will see social hierarchy and violent competition through war, greed, ego, righteousness of the past, what is overlooked, are the Environmental Conditions present in each case.
Humans have been living a scarcity mentality since the dawn of existence. As time has gone by, we have become more and more “civilized” due to our ability to create. Humans are able to create tools and set in motion processes that free the human being from a particular chore or problem, reducing Scarcity.
We see that on a fundamental level that if scarcity could be eradicated, then human behaviour would undergo a dramatic change, moving away from competition, dominance and stratification.
Therefore, true change will come from removing the conditions that cause the aberrant behaviour patterns which pollute our societies. Prison, Police and Laws are mere patchwork and, in fact, tend to make things worse over time.
Ultimately, it is going to take a redesign of our culture to change human behaviour for the better.

Technology

When we consider the relevance of our social structures and ideologies in society, very often we view governments, politicians and corporations as the guiding organizational and catalytic institutions responsible for the quality of our lives. This is, of course, true… but only to a certain extent. As time has moved forward, human beings have become more and more aware of nature, its processes, and thus have been able to derive inference about how to imitate nature in all its creative glory.
The result has been Technology, which is what separates us humans from the other species as far as functionality. We have the ability to create in very vast ways.
At the beginning of the Industrial Age, a great majority of people worked in factories. Today, automation comprises 90% of nearly all factories…

This pattern is very revealing. The implication is that machine automation is constantly challenging the role of general human labour and denotes the freeing of humanity from jobs which humans do not care to engage in, so they will have time to pursue what they choose to…

In a true society, there would be no such thing as the separation of “work and “leisure”, consider the curiosity and interest of a child. He or she doesn’t even know what money is…Do they need to be motivated by money to go out and explore/create? No. They have a personal interest and they pursue it without reward. In fact, the greatest contributors to our society, such as Einstein, Newton or Galileo, pursued what they did without any regard to money. They did it because they wanted to. The act of doing and contributing was their reward.

The point here is that money is not a true incentive for anything and to think as such is to assume that humans are inherently lazy and corrupt. Laziness and corruption are products of the conditioning our social system creates.

We find that our quality of life, as far as functionality, has been increased greatly by the benefits of the technological tools we create. From a lawn mower to a pace maker, technology saves lives and decreases the amount of time we need to spend on mundane, difficult or dangerous activities. In fact, if one steps back far enough, it becomes clear that Technological development is the most important institution we have and the pursuit of socially helpful technology (not weapons) should be the highest priority of the culture.

If we had the option to rebuild a society from scratch, how would we do it to make it the most efficient, sustainable and humane? It is time we stop thinking about monetary concerns and limitations, and begin to think about the possibilities we have here on Earth in the broadest sense.

Sustainability

When we think of sustainability, often we think of durability, longevity and environmental respect. In general, a sustainable practice is a practice that takes the health of the future into consideration. However, this idea isn’t just reserved for the physical, material world- it also applies to thought, belief, human conduct and society as a whole.
An unsustainable practice is one that has an unbalanced negative effect, which, through time, will adversely affect a person, society and/or the environment. Any practice that causes an irreversible resource depletion or long term environmental pollution is an unsustainable practice.
If a particular company outputs large amounts of waste by-products during production, polluting the environment, this would be considered an unsustainable practice as well, regardless of what they are producing.

Similarly, if materials or knowledge used in the production of a particular kind of product are not of the highest known quality, very often the integrity of that product is compromised inherently, leading to the eventual creation of more waste when that product fails or becomes obsolete. Given our current system of profit, most of everything that is produced is done so with a built in weakness, due to the need to compete for market share. In other words, if two companies are each competing to create a certain item, both will need to be strategic in the materials and designs they use, very often compromising quality for the sake of affordability. The result is a product which breaks down much faster than a product which was given the greatest care and highest quality component materials.

This doesn’t happen in our system for two reasons: 1) If a company was to use the best known design and the best known materials, they would likely have a much higher production cost and would likely lose a competitive edge. 2) If products were made to last for extended periods of time, people would not need to repeatedly replace, update and fix their items as much, and a vast amount of revenue and jobs would be lost by industry at large, slowing the economy.

This is, of course, unsustainable by definition, for the inherent inefficiency of the economic system eventually creates unnecessary multiplicities, waste and pollution.

And this leads us to unsustainable ideologies.

An unsustainable ideology is one that inherently leads a person or group to unsustainable practices. For instance, the reason a production plant might use poor materials to create unsustainable products, while also outputting a disproportionate amount of waste, is really the result of a larger force, known as the Monetary or Profit System. In a Profit System, there is no reward for sustainability, for the system is built upon competition and regeneration. In such a circumstance, sustainability is always second to profit, for the survival of a company is based on profit, and profit is partly based on reducing costs and expanding income. Therefore, the unsustainable practices that exist in all industries are the result of an underlying flaw in the ideological economic structure itself.

In theory, most would agree that having an abundance of resources, along with products that are made of the most endurable materials for maximum sustainability and efficiency, is a good thing. However, these notions are not rewarded in our current world monetary system. What is rewarded is Scarcity. Scarcity and planned obsolescence are rewarded in the short term, for it creates a ‘turnover’ of profit, while also making more jobs. Sadly, this ‘short term reward’ is at the cost of ‘long term destruction’.
The Free Enterprise System, along with all other subgroups, such as communism, socialism and fascism, is an unsustainable ideology, for it has built into it a propensity for environmental and social abuse. To put it more clearly, a world that is in competition with itself for labour, resources, and survival is an unsustainable system inherently, for it lacks an external conscience.

So then, what is a sustainable ideology?

Sadly, our approach to social operation is largely without logic or methodology, but rather it is submerged in tradition, superstition and outmoded methods of conduct. A scientific approach to society, using logic and reason to assess and react to social issues would have a natural gravitation towards sustainability, for nothing can be isolated or detached in such an approach. In other words, we need to stop looking at the world through the blinders of the systems and ideologies that have been created in the past, and start looking at the world in the most broad, unbiased way we can.

A quick glance at the modes of operation used in the world today reflect a gross negligence of reason, logic and scientific application. Our economic structures are based on mediums of exchange and values which have little relationship to true resources and reality. Our labour system is setup so that people must be “employed” in order to gain money to survive, while the actual contribution that these occupations have to society are highly suspect, showing that “jobs” often exist simply to keep people doing “something” in order to live and support the economic structure.

This is a waste of human life…

There are many, many facets to the understanding that our current social institutions are unsustainable. To summarize the issue, our life on Earth must have a foundational premise by which our operations relate. From a scientific perspective, we see that resources and human ingenuity are the most valuable issues at hand. Human intelligence and awareness, coupled with the thoughtful management and utilization of earth resources are really the only two core issues. Everything else is built upon this. Therefore, we need to begin an approach which maximizes education, technology and resource management.

Spirituality

Spirituality has a many meanings.

The interconnection of the whole of life is undeniable in the most basic sense, and it is this perpetual ‘relationship’ of total interconnectivity that is not fully realised by society overall. Thus, our modes of conduct and perception are largely out of line with connecting humanity with each other with nature and with the cosmos itself… and hence destructive.

It is the mission of this movement to draw attention to all aspects of spirituality so that we may together realise the prophesy and take humanity into the enlightened age.

The Story so far…

By | January 1st, 2013|New World Order, Prophesy, Spiritual Warriors, Unity of Humanity|

Where the World and its people are today is exactly where we need to be, our predicament, our tribulation our quest is simply a part of the eternal story of God and his creation, his majesty in the infinite opportunity for the cosmic self to realise how magnificent Eternity is.

This is a predictable and prophesied story. It was foreseen and foretold that in order for the humble, gentle, kind, peaceful and meek majority of people to inherit the Earth.

It is also prophesied that a truly righteous judgement is needed to correct the political and religious leaders of the world who have brought us to the current state of inequity and injustice – because it was not God who caused this tribulation. It was the vain folly of Man as the Devil is truly in Man. Man has and always wanted to be God. History is littered with Men struck by the prophesied story and their attempt to influence Eternity. The Spirit of Truth has woven its vein through out history in a battle to realise the Eternal truth of the will of God. There is a level of consciousness that Man can attain which brings him so close to God that he without humility he starts to believe he is God. History has attempted to wean Man out of this vanity however in doing so Man has removed God from its core function and recompense.

Even though a judgement and a divine intervention and intercession were prophesied, it is not as many religious people expected. The fulfilment of the real prophecies is not about the rule of one World religion or one World government, and it has nothing to do with a “holy war” or magic or anything supernatural.

The fulfilment of prophecy is about truth, love, reason and justice overcoming false beliefs, hate, bigotry and injustice. And it is about the pen finally proving to be mightier than the sword.

The judgement and the fulfilment of prophecy is about the liberation and empowerment of the people, so that we may finally become the family of religions and races and nations with governments that will be truly of the people, by the people, and for the people.

The promised judgement helps us understand that only God the eternal, omnipresent Great redeemer reins Sovereign, above all human beings. It explains that the fulfilment of prophecy is to bring about a reformation of our religions and our governments so that they will use the common wealth for the common good, promote the general welfare, and ensure domestic tranquillity, pluralism and freedom of religions, equal rights and opportunities, and justice for all the people to move humanity into the vast expanse of the Universe to explore and add to the story of Eternity.

As was prophesied, while the messenger is rejected, spiritually blind leaders lead their blind flocks astray, and we are in this state of tribulation because the greatest refuge of a scoundrel is patriotism, and the greatest refuge of a hypocrite is religiosity. And the proud and militant, who have claimed that their religion or nation or race or culture is superior to all others, or that their wealth entitles them to rule, are all woefully wrong.

The scriptures of many religions speak of a coming leader who will consummate the fulfilment of the divine will on Earth. He will manifest in this person the righteousness and compassion of God, and he will bring about the final defeat of evil, and establish the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth. The Hebrew title Messiah–‘Christ’ in Greek means “anointed one,” that person who will be specially chosen by God for this mission and empowered to accomplish it.

But while the term Messiah is specific to only a few religions, prophecies that a leader will come and accomplish such a mission are nearly universal.

Religions call him by various names: Jews long for the promised Messiah; for Christians the Messiah is Jesus of Nazareth, who has already come and ascended to heaven but will reappear (perhaps in a new guise) at his Second Coming. Muslims also expect the second advent of Jesus, who will come as a Muslim Imam, and among Shiite Muslims there are various expectations of a future Imam Mahdi. Buddhist sutras prophesy the coming of the Maitreya Buddha; Vaishnavite Hindu scriptures prophesy the future descent of an avatar named Kalki; Zoroastrian scriptures prophesy the coming of the Saoshyant; and some Confucian texts speak of a future True Man who will finally bring peace to the world by perfectly instituting the Way of Confucius.

Various prophecies of these religions are gathered, as follows;

“Surely I am coming soon.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus!

Christianity. Revelation 22.20
—————————————————————

For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government shall be upon his shoulder,
and his name shall be called
“Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”
Of the increase of his government and of peace
there will be no end,
upon the throne of David, and over his kingdom,
to establish it, and to uphold it
with justice and with righteousness,
from this time forth and for ever more.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will do this.

Judaism and Christianity. Isaiah 9.6-7
—————————————————————

I saw in the night visions,
and behold, with the clouds of heaven
there came one like a son of man.
He came to the Ancient of Days
and was presented before him.
And to him was given dominion
and glory and kingdom,
that all peoples, nations, and languages
should serve him.
His dominion is an everlasting dominion,
which shall not pass away.
And his kingdom one
that shall not be destroyed.

Judaism and Christianity. Daniel 7.13-14
—————————————————————

Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light, and the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of heaven will be shaken; then will appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven, and then all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory; and he will send out his angels with a loud trumpet call, and they will gather his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.

Christianity. Matthew 24.29-31
—————————————————————

In the time to come… the Patriarchs will say, “Ephraim, our righteous Messiah, though we are your ancestors, you are greater than we. For you have borne the sins of our children, and you have borne heavy punishments, such as neither the former nor the latter generations have endured, and you became the laughter and the mocking of all the nations for Israel’s sake, and you sat in darkness, and your eyes saw no light. And your skin shrank upon your bones, and your body withered like a tree, and your eyes grew dark from fasting, and your strength dried up like a potsherd, and all this befell you because of the sins of our children. Is it your will that your children should enjoy the felicity which God has destined to give them in abundance? Perhaps because of the pains which you have endured in overflowing measure for their sakes, and because thou hast lain fettered in prison, your mind is not at rest because of them?” Messiah will reply, “Patriarchs, all that I have done, I have done only for your sakes and for your children, and for your honour and theirs, so that they may enjoy the felicity which God has destined for them in abundance.” Then they reply, “May your mind be appeased, for you have appeased the mind of your Creator and our mind.”

Judaism. Midrash, Pesikta Rabbati 162b-63a
—————————————————————

And

[Jesus] shall be a Sign of the Hour [of Judgment]; therefore have no doubt about it, but follow Me: this is a straight way.

Islam. Qur’an 43.61
—————————————————————

The Messenger of Allah observed, “What will be your state when the Son of Mary descends amongst you, and there will be an Imam amongst you? What would you do when the son of Mary would descend and lead you?”

Islam. Hadith of Muslim
—————————————————————

The Apostle of Allah said, “Were there remaining but one day of the duration of all time, God would send forth a man from the people of my house, who will fill the earth with equity as it has been filled with oppression.”

Islam. Hadith of Abu Dawud
—————————————————————

The Imam who will create a world state will make the ruling nations pay for their crimes against society. He will bring succour to humanity. He will take out the hidden wealth from the breast of the earth and will distribute it equitably amongst the needy deserving. He will teach you simple living and high thinking. He will make you understand that virtue is a state of character which is always a mean between the two extremes, and which is based upon equity and justice. He will revive the teaching of the Holy Qur’an and the traditions of the Holy Prophet after the world has ignored them as dead letters….

He will protect and defend himself with resources of science and supreme knowledge. His control over these resources will be complete. He will know how supreme they are and how carefully they will have to be used. His mind will be free from desires of bringing harm and injury to humanity. Such a knowledge to him will be like the property which was wrongly possessed by others and for which he was waiting for the permission to repossess and use.

He, in the beginning, will be like a poor stranger unknown and uncared for, and Islam then will be in the hopeless and helpless plight of an exhausted camel who has laid down its head and is wagging its tail. With such a start he will establish an empire of God in this world. He will be the final demonstration and proof of God’s merciful wish to acquaint man with the right ways of life.

Islam (Shiite). Nahjul Balagha, Khutba 141, 187
—————————————————————

He shall be the victorious Benefactor (Saoshyant) by name and World-renovator [Astavat-ereta] by name. He is Benefactor because he will benefit the entire physical world; he is World-renovator because he will establish the physical living existence indestructible. He will oppose the evil of the progeny of the biped and withstand the enmity produced by the faithful.

Zoroastrianism. Avesta, Farvardin Yast 13.129
—————————————————————

Whenever the Law declines and the purpose of life is forgotten, I manifest myself on Earth. I am born in every age to protect the good, to destroy evil, and to reestablish the Law.

Hinduism. Bhagavad Gita 4.7-8
—————————————————————

When the practices taught by the Vedas and the institutes of law shall nearly have ceased, and the close of the Kali age shall be nigh, a portion of that divine being who exists of his own spiritual nature in the character of Brahma, and who is the beginning and the end, and who comprehends all things, shall descend upon the Earth. He will be born as Kalki in the family of an eminent brahmin of Sambhala village, endowed with the eight superhuman faculties. By his irresistible might he will destroy all the barbarians and thieves, and all whose minds are devoted to iniquity. He will then reestablish righteousness upon earth; and the minds of those who live at the end of the Kali age shall be awakened, and shall be as pellucid as crystal. The men who are thus changed by virtue of that peculiar time shall be as the seeds of human beings, and shall give birth to a race who shall follow the laws of the Krita age, the Age of Purity. As it is said, “When the sun and moon, and the luner asterism Tishya, and the planet Jupiter, are in one mansion, the Krita age shall return.”

Hinduism. Vishnu Purana 4.24
—————————————————————

Thus have I heard: At one time the Buddha was staying near Kapilavatthu in the Banyan monastery on the bank of the river Rohani. Then the venerable Sariputta questioned the Lord about the future Conqueror,

The Hero that shall follow you,
The Buddha–of what sort will he be?
I want to hear of him in full.
Let the Visioned One describe him.

When he heard the elder’s speech the Lord spoke thus,

I will tell you, Sariputta;
listen to my speech.
In this auspicious aeon
Three leaders there have been:
Kakusandha, Konagamana,
and the leader Kassapa too.
I am now the perfect Buddha;
and there will be Maitreya too
before this same auspicious aeon
runs to the end of its years.

Buddhism. Anagata-vamsa
—————————————————————

In those days, brethren, there will arise in the world an Exalted One named Metteya. He will be an Arahant, Fully Awakened, abounding in wisdom and goodness, happy, with knowledge of the worlds, unsurpassed as a guide to mortals willing to be led, a teacher for gods and men, an Exalted One, a Buddha, even as I am now. He, by himself, will thoroughly know and see, as it were face to face, this universe, with its worlds of the spirits, its Brahm-as and its M-aras, and its world of recluses and brahmins, of princes and peoples, even as I now, by myself, thoroughly know and see them. The Law, lovely in its origin, lovely in its progress, lovely in its consummation, will he proclaim, both in the spirit and in the letter; the higher life will he make known, in all its fullness and in all its purity, even as I do now. He will be accompanied by a congregation of some thousands of brethren, even as I am now accompanied by a congregation of some hundreds of brethren.

Buddhism. Digha Nikaya iii.76, Chakkavatti Sihanada Suttanta
—————————————————————

Listen attentively with one heart. A man whose spirit shines brightly, a man whose mind is completely unified, a man whose virtue excels everyone–such a man will truly appear in this world. When he preaches precious laws, all the people will totally be satisfied as if the thirsty drink sweet drops of rain from heaven. And each and every one will attain the path of liberation from struggles.

Buddhism. Sutra of the Great Accomplishment of the Maitreya
—————————————————————

Miroku, the Great God, comes forth, endowed with the
great strength of the three in one–Fire, Water, Earth.
Miroku, the Great God, from of old has planted
heaven upon earth.
Miroku, the Great God, even as comes a thief,
has secretly been born below.
Leaving behind the highly exalted throne to bring
salvation, Miroku has been born below.

Sekai Kyusei Kyo. Inori-no-Shu
—————————————————————

Confucius said, “If a Kingly Man were to arise, within a single generation Goodness would prevail.”

Confucianism. Analects 13.12
—————————————————————

It is only the man with the most perfect divine moral nature who is able to combine in himself quickness of apprehension, intelligence and understanding–qualities necessary for the exercise of command, magnanimity, generosity, benignity, and gentleness–qualities necessary for the exercise of patience, originality, energy, strength of character, and determination–qualities necessary for the exercise of endurance, piety, noble seriousness, order, and regularity–qualities necessary for the exercise of dignity, grace, method, subtlety, and penetration–qualities necessary for the exercise of critical judgment.

Thus all-embracing and vast is the nature of such a man. Profound it is and inexhaustible, like a living spring of water, ever running out with life and vitality. All-embracing and vast, it is like Heaven. Profound and inexhaustible, it is like the abyss.

As soon as such a man shall make his appearance in the world, all people will reverence him. Whatever he says, all people will believe it. Whatever he does, all people will be pleased with it. Thus his fame and name will spread and fill all the civilized world, extending even to savage countries, wherever ships and carriages reach, wherever the labour and enterprise of man penetrate, wherever the heavens overshadow and the earth sustain, wherever the sun and moon shine, wherever frost and dew fall. All who have life and breath will honour and love him. Therefore we may say, “He is the equal of God.”

It is only he in this world, who has realized his absolute self, that can order and adjust the great relations of human society, fix the fundamental principles of morality, and understand the laws of growth and reproduction of the universe.

Now, where does such a man derive his power and knowledge, except from himself? How simple and self-contained his true manhood! How unfathomable the depth of his mind! How infinitely grand and vast the moral height of his nature! Who can understand such a nature except he who is gifted with the most perfect intelligence and endowed with the highest divine qualities of character, and who has reached in his moral development the level of the gods?

Confucianism. Doctrine of the Mean 31-32
