I AM the Ascended Master Saint Germain. I wish to give you a discourse that applies to all of the democratic nations that have reached a higher level
of democracy and are experiencing somewhat of a crisis in their nations because they do not know what is the next step for democracy. They have not seen it or they have not been willing to see it. I wish to give you my thoughts on this topic, which is a somewhat
broad topic. It requires us to recognize a very simple fact that has not generally been recognized by the democratic nations, and that fact is the existence of a power elite.
I am not thereby saying
that all democratic nations are ready and willing to acknowledge the teachings we have given about fallen beings on the planet. I am saying that all democratic nations need to be willing to recognize that the primary difference between a democracy and other
forms of government, especially a dictatorship, is that a government that is free and democratic cannot allow the formation of a power elite.
You will see that all democratic nations had in their
past a more dictatorial, centralized form of government. It needs to be understood that the central aspect of such a form of government was the formation of a small power elite that could exercise power over the majority of the population. What most democracies
today call a dictatorship is a form of government where one person has near total power, and around him is a power elite that has the major function of carrying out the dictator’s dictates.
The true goal of a democratic government
Nevertheless, it needs to be understood that even if you do not have a single dictator,
you can still have a very small power elite that is in a privileged position where they can exercise power without accountability and where they can dictate to the people how the people should live. This, of course, is the antithesis of democracy, and it needs
to be recognized that it must be the goal of a truly democratic government to make a very enlightened, aware effort to counteract the formation of power elites. It also needs to be recognized that so far, no democratic nation has done a good enough job of
counteracting the formation of power elites.
It needs to be recognized also that all democratic nations had a power elite when those nations shifted to a democratic form of government. That power
elite did not simply lie down and die or evaporate into thin air. They continued to exist and they have, ever since then, attempted to influence the democratic government in many different ways. These have often been hidden ways because in a democratic country
they cannot exercise power as openly as in a more centralized power structure. Nevertheless, this also puts a special responsibility on democratic governments to make sure that such a power elite cannot form, even if it seems like a benign power elite.
Does anyone know better than the people?
This, of course,
brings up the topic that is at the very heart of democracy. What, my beloved, is the essence of a democracy? Well, it is that the people rule. Why then is it so that all nations that call themselves democracies have what you call a representative democracy?
The people are not ruling directly by voting on issues but the people vote for representatives in their parliament and then those representatives carry out what they call the will of the people but which too often becomes the will of the hidden power elite.
Why is it that so many of the older democracies know they are in a crisis because the people’s confidence in the government is falling, yet they do not know what to do about it? Well, it
is very simple, my beloved. It is because in those older democracies a power elite has formed and that power elite is not willing to let go of its power. Now, you may say: “Is there not a difference between the power elite in a democratic country and
the power elite in a dictatorial country?”
In many cases there is a difference because the power elite that has formed in many of the older democracies is what you could, with a certain
irony, call a “benevolent” power elite. With that I mean to some degree that it is not a power elite that is openly aggressive and openly, deliberately and maliciously seeking to suppress, manipulate and control the population. It is however an
elite who is seeking to manipulate and control the population because they think they know better, they know better than the people how the country should be run. This is a topic that all democratic nations, but especially the older ones, need to consider
very carefully. My beloved, if you go to just about every democratic nation, you can ask the people who are elected representatives, who are in the bureaucratic establishment, who are in the educational institutions, the financial institutions, and the press
and the media. If you ask these people what they think about this topic, most of them will say that the population, the people of their nation, are not capable of running the nation, of ruling the nation, because they simply do not know enough about how to
run the country. They do not understand the complicated dynamics involved with running a country.
Now my beloved, you may, if you want to be kind to this elite, say that they are right. In many
nations the people, if you look at the broader population, do not know enough about how their country works or how, for example, the economy works, so that they could rule the country. Can you see that when this statement is made by a power elite, it is hollow,
it is hypocritical because, my beloved, who is in charge of the educational system and the press and the media of that country? Is it not the very power elite who claim that the people do not know enough? If that power elite has not educated the people as
to how the country works, whose responsibility is it?
If they have not educated the people, it is not because the people are not capable of being educated but because the power elite is not willing
to educate the people because they do not want to share power. It is, my beloved, that simple. There is no way around it, there is no fancy argumentation you can come up with that changes the dynamic here. The power elite of the older democracies have not
been willing to educate their own people as to how the country works and that is entirely their responsibility. You see my beloved, this form of democracy cannot take the world into the Golden Age. It is impossible to move into the Golden Age without educating
and enlightening the people as to how a country works because in the Golden Age the people must rule. They must make the major decisions.
The press must serve the people, not the elite
My beloved, what needs to be done to change this dynamic? Well, it can only happen by the people beginning to stand up for
themselves and demanding a different form of government where they have a more direct influence. We have talked before about this phenomenon of direct democracy where the people vote in popular referendums about major issues in the country.
There will be a considerable resistance to this idea even in many of the older democracies. Do you not see that all of these democracies are facing a situation where the population have less and less faith in
their elected representatives, in those who run the economy, in those who run the educational systems and in those who run the press and the media? You may say, if you are a member of this power elite, that this is a dangerous development because the people
often respond to what has lately been labeled as “fake news.” But you see, my beloved, why is it that the people are so open to news that do not come from the established sources? It is because even if the people cannot articulate this, they know
that they cannot trust what comes from the mainstream media because the mainstream media has as its primary objective to maintain the status quo.
They want to maintain the present power structure.
So, you may say that it is dangerous when people respond to these fake news (and I will not disagree that it can be dangerous) but then, what is the alternative? It is, of course, that the news media that are already there need to wake up and realize that
they will only survive if they serve the interests of the people, not the elite.
It is not the job of a free press to preserve the current power structure when that power structure does not serve
the people and does not serve the country in the long run. The country is moving into a new phase of its development where the old form of representative democracy is becoming obsolete, is becoming outdated. Of course, the power elite that has taken advantage
of representative democracy does not want their hold on the country to be upset, to be overturned, and therefore they will do anything they can to maintain that structure.
This means that there
are those among the power elite in some nations who are deliberately creating fake news in order to undermine the peoples’ belief in, or faith in, alternative news media. They believe that by putting out fake news that are so outrageous that people can
see through them, or that can be exposed by the mainstream media as being fake, they can scare the people to come back and only listen to mainstream media. My beloved, this is an exceptionally naive belief and it simply cannot happen. You cannot turn the clock
back to a situation where most people had faith in the major media outlets. These media outlets are like the dinosaurs. It is just that those who work in them have not realized that they have become extinct.
My beloved, the major media outlets in most democratic nations are run by people who are part of this power elite. They see themselves as a benevolent power elite. They sit there in their media towers, their fortifications, and they think that they
will somehow be able to survive in the Internet age and maintain their monopoly on printing newspapers, printing books, running television stations and radio stations. They think they can maintain their structure and maintain their advertising income and get
people to continue to subscribe to their newspapers and magazines even though the people are losing faith in them. But it cannot be done, my beloved, and it cannot be done for one very simple reason. They are not serving the people and the people are beginning
to realize this in greater and greater numbers.
Why are they not serving the people? Because they have built such an arrogance of thinking that they can know what the people should think about
all topics. Therefore, they believe it is not their job to simply report the news and let the people form their own opinion. They believe it is the job of the media outlets to form the opinions of the people. They believe that they know what opinions people
should have in order to maintain stability in their country. My beloved, as I have said before and as we have said before, we as the ascended masters do not have it as our primary goal to maintain stability but to maintain growth, to create growth, to create
Representative democracy is a temporary stage
We have never considered that a representative democracy was the final stage of democracy, was the highest form of democracy, the ultimate form of democracy. This has never been our vision. We see that democracy is only a means to an end, namely the
raising of the consciousness of the people. This, of course, means that we have never seen that the formation of a democratic power elite was serving that purpose in the long run. It was, as we have said before, necessary, given the state of communication
that was available in the 1700s, 1800s and 1900’s and the level of education and literacy among the people.
There had to be a period where the people elected representatives and those representatives
made the decisions in the parliamentary assemblies. That period has become obsolete by technology that makes it possible to spread information, to communicate, that makes it easier for the people to vote on issues so that they do not have to vote only every
four years by going to a ballot room and putting their crosses on a printed ballot. Now they can begin to vote over the Internet so that the process is much smoother and much quicker.
it needs to be seen, and you who are the ascended master students need to make the calls on this, that the people wake up and realize that the age of having a democratic power elite who believes they know better than the people how to run the country is coming
to an end. It has outlived its usefulness and it is time to consider what the next stage for democracy is. My beloved, let us look at a specific country and since we are here in South Korea, let us look at the nation of South Korea.
You have a typical power elite in this country that believes it knows better than the people how the country should be run. You have, which is not completely typical but still it is a phenomenon found in other countries, where you
have very strong business conglomerates that have a very strong influence on the democratic power elite. You also have a media that is strongly influenced by the business conglomerates, in many cases owned by them even behind the scenes. They are not likely
to write something that will rock the boat too much.
What happens here is very simple. You have what we have talked about before as a process of unnatural selection. Those who desire to become
part of the political establishment and either go into the bureaucracy or run for public office by running as a representative, they all develop this attitude of arrogance of knowing better than the people. I call it unnatural selection because it is a selection
process that is not the natural process in a higher way.
It should be so, my beloved, that those who consider going into the democratic government (either in the bureaucracy or as the representatives)
will gradually be selected based on those who have the highest willingness and desire to serve the people. What happens instead is that you have an unnatural process of selecting those who have the tendency to feel superior to the people.
You end up with a process where those who are willing to serve the people in many cases become disillusioned with the system and decide to withdraw. Either they withdraw from the bureaucracy or they decide not to run for public office
because they are not willing to “go along to get along.” They are not willing to follow the culture that has developed either in the bureaucratic area or in the political area. They are not willing to follow, for example, the party discipline and
to not speak out about certain issues they know about because it does not fit in with what the party wants to do based on their hidden agenda of cooperating with the business conglomerates or the media so that they do not upset the apple cart and change the
power structure in society.
Many of the people who have the potential to bring forth Golden Age ideas have elected by themselves not to go into the bureaucracy, not to run for public office because
they know it will be a compromise of their ideals—and their ideals are more important to them than getting a comfortable job or a position as an elected representative. They simply choose to go different ways and to seek another way to make a living
or another way to have an impact on the country. You end up with a situation where the people do not feel that they have real representatives to vote for because they do not feel that either side of parliament truly represents the people. They know there is
a hidden agenda. They know that the major political parties have, so to speak, sold their soul to the business conglomerates or to maintaining status quo and therefore they do not feel that anything new can be brought in.
Why the people do know best
Now, my beloved, when you look at the peaceful demonstrations
that took place here in South Korea over the issue of the president and the corruption around the president, you can see this as a very, very clear sign that the people do actually know better than the elite because the people know when a change is needed.
They may not know consciously everything that is involved with the situation because, again, they do not have access to the full information since the elite is withholding that information. Nevertheless, my beloved, the people are quite capable of feeling
in their hearts or in their gut, so to speak, when a change is needed, when something has been going on for so long, when that something is not right and when they simply cannot accept it anymore. If they had a more direct way of voting for particular issues,
they would also be able to feel what would be the best for their country.
My beloved, there are many among these democratic power elites who think that if their country switched to a direct form
of democracy right now, it would be a total disaster because the people would vote for things that would be dangerous to the country. My beloved, let me make a very, very clear statement as the ascended master who is the hierarch for the next 2,000 years:
I do not agree with these power elites! Even if all democratic nations switched within the next year to a direct form of democracy, I, Saint Germain, would much prefer the rule of the general population to the rule of the elite.
Why is this so, my beloved? Can it not be foreseen that in some cases the people would vote for certain issues that could have some not necessarily disastrous effects but certainly would create some turmoil in the countries? Yes, it
could be predicted that the people would make certain decisions that would create turmoil but again, that turmoil will lead to growth because of a very simple fact. If the people make a decision that turns out to have, not the consequences they wanted, then
who can the people blame when it was a result of their direct vote?
Do you see who they are blaming now, my beloved? They are blaming the politicians. They are blaming the business conglomerates.
They are blaming the media. They are pointing the finger at someone else, but if the people vote directly, they have no one else to point the finger at than themselves. This will mean that a considerable part of the people will wake up and realize that: “If
we could make a decision that led to these consequences, then it was because we didn’t know enough about the topic and then we need to educate ourselves so that we can make a better decision in the future.”
My beloved, what happens in a democratic parliament if the parliament members make a decision that turns out to have undesirable consequences? Well, do they not go back and make another decision that has better consequences? Well,
can you not have the people do the same, my beloved?
Does the fact that you have a referendum about a certain issue mean that you could never have another referendum about that issue and that
the decision that was made has to stand for all time? Of course, it does not, my beloved. Do you not see here that the next stage for democracy is to put the people in a situation where they have no one else to blame, where they cannot blame the power elite?
My beloved, this is what will give maximum growth to the people of those nations, and let me tell you that the people of virtually all of the older democracies are precisely ready to have that
responsibility. They may not know this consciously, they may not be ready to articulate it, but they are ready for it and you can see this by the very fact of the growing dissatisfaction with the political status quo.
You can see that the people are looking for alternatives. Now, those alternatives are not there in most democratic nations and it is because, again, we need to go back and look at the underlying attitude where you have a small elite
that believes that they know how the country should be run and that the population does not know how the country should be run. This is an attitude that is the very essence of elitism that goes all the way back to when the first fallen beings started embodying
on this planet.
Why elitism creates chaos
you take our teachings about the fallen beings, you will realize that they have, from the very moment they fell into this sphere, thought they knew better than those who were created as individual lifestreams in this sphere. You could argue that at a certain
level they do know better because they have created so much destruction in previous spheres that they have an expert knowledge of how to destroy anything, which the lifestreams that were created in this sphere simply do not have. So yes, when it comes to creating
chaos and destruction, the fallen beings do know better than the people. There is no question about it. I will be the first to admit that.
You see my beloved, I do not think that creating chaos
and destruction has any part in creating a Golden Age and so therefore I do not consider the knowledge of the fallen beings to be particularly useful to me. I trust that most of you and most of the people around the world would not consider it particularly
useful to them either. Have you not seen enough examples in world history of the chaos and destruction that the fallen beings can create? Is it not so that in most nations the broader population is beginning to awaken and say: “We have had enough of
this chaos, we don’t want any more of this chaos, what’s the alternative?”
The people are actually crying out; “What is the alternative to us being ruled by the fallen
beings?” They would not be able to articulate it that way, but this is what they are crying out for in their hearts: “Show us an alternative to being ruled by the fallen beings, the power elite, who can only create chaos and destruction or as an
alternative may be able to create a static society where the majority of the people are the virtual slaves of a small elite.” This is what the people are ready for, my beloved. They are ready for freedom from the fallen beings, freedom from a small power
elite who are so arrogant that they think they know better than the people.
I will therefore throw out there into the collective consciousness, radiate into the collective consciousness, the awareness
that it is necessary for the older democracies to step up and give the population broader influence on the political decision-making process. This begins with recognizing that the people need to know more about how the country functions. It needs to be recognized
also by the people that they need to be willing to educate themselves.
The next stage beyond welfare
Now you may say, as the ruling elite will say immediately, that most of the people do not want to know better, they do not want to educate themselves. They only want to live their comfortable daily lives
and not have anything that upsets their daily lives. My beloved, this no longer is the case. There was a phase for democracies where the people had grown up in such poverty that their goal was to have more material abundance. If many of you look at your grandparents’
generation, they lived in poverty and therefore there was a phase for modern democracies where it was a main goal to create a somewhat more economically equal situation where no one was really poor, or there are only a few people who are poor, and where you
have a broad middle class that has a reasonable standard of living.
This again was a phase. It was a legitimate phase but many of the older democracies have moved out of this phase where there
now is such material affluence that the people are getting tired of materialism, they are getting tired of being consumers. They are longing for a deeper purpose with their lives and this is again why they are becoming dissatisfied with their leaders because
they are not giving them an alternative to the materialistic lifestyle. Again, these leaders cannot decide what kind of beings they are and what kind of beings the population are. Are they sinners, as the Christians say, or are they evolved monkeys, as the
materialists say or are they neither? Is there an alternative to the two?
Of course, there is, and it is the alternative that we have given now for decades. More and more people are ready for
that alternative in a universal form and therefore again, what the power elite always wants to do is to argue why status quo should not be changed. They use as their argument always that the people are not ready for changing the status quo, but who is responsible
for the people not being ready other than those who are in charge of that society?
Again, I radiate into the collective consciousness the utter hypocrisy of these arguments, but can this situation
be broken by the power elite? Nay, for they would already have done so if they were willing to do so, for they have had the power to do so. So, who can break it? Only the people themselves.
can come a point where there has been a rising unrest and discontent in the identity, mental and emotional bodies of the people. They feel the tension but they do not consciously know how to direct that tension in a constructive direction so that it has the
best possible impact on their nation. This is where the ascended master students have a historic opportunity to step in and give your calls, give your invocations, and first of all raise your own consciousness so that you can pull up on the collective consciousness
and give the population the direction they are seeking.
This again does not mean that the people will all become ascended master students but it does mean that suddenly more and more among the
people will wake up and from one day to the next they will say: “Ah, but this concept of direct democracy is obvious is it not, why shouldn’t we vote about the issues? Of course, we are capable of knowing what to vote and what is the right direction
for our nation. Why should we believe that the power elite will know better than us, isn’t it obvious that we are capable of knowing?” My beloved, it is obvious that the people are capable of knowing and you will know this very simply when you
think about it.
The limitations of intelligence
is it that the power elite is always talking about? They are talking about intelligence, my beloved. They believe that there is an intelligent elite who know better than the people. If you look at this realistically, you will see that, among all groups of
people in a society, there are people even with a high IQ (as you measure it by the standard IQ test), it is simply that those people were not given an opportunity to express that intelligence by getting an education or getting a position.
Now, on the other hand if you were willing to be completely honest, you could take those who belong to the elite, you could go in and look at the politicians and those who run the big companies and you could subject them to IQ tests
and you would find that they would not score higher than the average population. It is simply a myth that the most intelligent people are the ones who have risen to the top of democratic societies. It is a myth, my beloved. Besides that, you cannot say that
a country can be run only by intelligent people who score higher according to the standard IQ test because they also need to have heart, they need to have situational awareness, they need to have wisdom. And you will again find that many among the people have
I know you can very well go out, my beloved, and you all know people who are very focused on themselves, who are very focused on their daily lives and their own situation and what we have
called petty problems. You may, from a certain objective evaluation, say that these people are simply not aware enough to make good decisions for their country.
This may be so but those people
do not make up a majority of the population and those people will vote the same way the people they know vote. As long as you find that broad section of the population that are aware enough, that are knowledgeable enough, to make good decisions, then the country
can indeed be run successfully by a direct democracy. I assure you, my beloved, that when you give the people an opportunity, they will step up. If you do not give the people an opportunity, you will see more and more discontent, more and more unrest in the
Two ways towards direct democracy
There is a growing fear of what they have now named “populism” but, my beloved, it is not populism. Having the people stand up and demand change is not populism, it is the future, my beloved. You cannot simply label it with a fancy label.
This is what the ruling elite will always do. A new movement comes up, they cannot ignore it, so they try to label it and then they try to define the label so it seems dangerous and therefore should be stopped. My beloved, why should it be stopped? If the
people want to elect an untraditional candidate for president or for members of parliament, then why should not the people be allowed to do so? You can see that within the next decade or so, direct democracy will have to be created in most of the older nations.
Why will it have to be created? Well, it can be created in two ways. The enlightened way is that the ruling elite realizes that their time is up and that they need to give way peacefully to direct democracy and they need to let the people vote.
The other way is that the people will continue to vote for these candidates that are outside the mainstream and that some of these candidates by their nature will be unbalanced and extreme and therefore they
will create chaos. This will scare the ruling elite so much that they say it might be better to let all the people vote on an issue than to have a small minority elect such an outside candidate that it creates too much chaos and uncertainty. In other words,
they will suddenly begin to see that direct democracy is the lesser of two evils and therefore they think they can still maintain some power over a direct democracy by the power they have over the media. They think that they can still trust their bureaucracy
and they can still influence the country that way.
Of course, it will not happen because they do not realize that you cannot stop the development towards greater awareness among the population.
As my beloved brother, Master MORE, has said: “When the people know better, they will do better.” We are coming into an age where the people want to know better. They will to know better and therefore they will know better and therefore they will
make better decisions, my beloved.
The potential for awakening the people
Now I wish to make just a very simple comment here on some of the elections that you see going on right now. We have in the last year seen the British people elect to exit the EU. This was not the highest decision from my perspective,
but I respect that it was for the British people, at this stage, a necessary decision because they needed to see the consequences of their own attitude towards being in a union with other nations. They need to see that they have not been willing to enter the
EU with the necessary attitude of desiring a higher union, a higher oneness, with other nations. They need to see the result of this and therefore, even though there can be many things said about this (and we may say more about it in Europe), it was first
of all an educational decision for the British people to take this step.
You have also seen in the United States where they did not elect the president that was predicted to become president because
they chose what was the more outside candidate. Again, we can debate whether this was the highest decision or not the highest decision, but it was the decision that the American people needed to make for their own education so that they could have a chance
to see whether electing someone who was not from the political establishment is actually better or not. Or whether there could be another alternative so that you could transcend the entire political establishment and the two-party system.
You see also upcoming elections in France where there is a possibility of a candidate who might take France out of the EU. Although it is unlikely that France would leave the EU, it is nevertheless a necessary phase for the French
people to go through the considerations that these forces them to make.
You see here in South Korea where you have an upcoming election, and again it is not that I can sit here and say there is
one particular candidate that we would like to see win. Well, there may be, but it is not necessarily realistic that you who are our students in South Korea in the few days left before the election could swing the collective consciousness so much that these
candidates would be elected. Nevertheless, whichever candidate becomes elected, it is the necessary step for the people. Not necessarily that this is the highest candidate, the highest choice from an ascended master perspective, but nevertheless it is the
highest choice in the sense that it is the choice that the people need to make in order to take the next step in the democratic growth of the country and the peoples’ willingness to take greater responsibility for their country.
You have seen now this very significant step here in South Korea that the people realized that by coming forward, by making these demonstrations, by making them peacefully, they could force a change. This is something that many people
had not believed a year ago when there first was talk about the corruption of the president. Many among the people simply shrugged their shoulders and thought: “Oh, she will never be impeached, she will never be held accountable, she will be able to
get away with this as so many politicians have done before.” Now you see that it is possible to hold a politician accountable. It is possible for the people to make their voice heard.
is a very significant shift in the collective consciousness as it has been in several other democratic nations, as it will be in the coming years in all of the older democracies where the people will shift. Instead of this voter apathy where they feel: “Oh,
it doesn’t matter who we vote for because it will be the same old political soup,” people will begin to wake up and realize: “We can actually influence the future of our nation, we can influence the political process. There is something we
can do and we are willing to do it.” This is where you who are the ascended master students again have the opportunity. Make the calls, change your own consciousness.
The population is not powerless
My beloved, what did Mother Mary say to you earlier? She said: “Accept that the Golden Age
is a possibility, is a reality, is descending upon this planet.” What will it take for you to accept it? It will take that you realize you are not powerless. What is it that democracies need to go through? The population needs to realize they are not
powerless. You who are ascended master students need to be the forerunners for this realization and realize that you are not powerless. Why are you not powerless? Because you are ascended master students. You have the potential to be open doors for the light
and the ideas we want to release into the collective consciousness. When you make yourselves those open doors, you are not powerless. With men this is impossible, but not with God, for with God all things are possible. With the ascended masters all things
My beloved, look at what has happened in this nation in this short time span since our first conference here. I tell you, this is not the end; it is only the beginning. We have only
scratched the surface of what is possible when enough people come together and give our invocations, study our teachings, raise their consciousness and accept that we are the forerunners. I am not looking at you to form a new elite. I am not looking at you
to adopt any kind of arrogance and thinking you know better than the people. I am looking for you to realize and accept that when you are willing to work with us, you can tune in to what is my vision for your nation. You can invoke that vision and you can
direct the collective consciousness so that more and more people will begin to wake up and suddenly realize: “Oh yes, this is obvious, we now see that this is the next step for our country.”
It is not something forced upon the people. It is a consensus that comes from within their own hearts because in their own hearts what do the people of any nation want? They want what is best for the people and what is best for their nation. So, when
they see what is best, they do not have to be forced to accept it. They will know better when they are presented with it and when the pathways have been cleared in the three higher octaves so there is the opening for them to have that higher vision of what
is possible for their nation, what is the next step for their nation.
Thus, my beloved, I know this has been a long discourse. I know for many of you, your chakras are at their maximum capacity
or even beyond the light you can receive, the light you can give out. My beloved, it is worth it for you, individually and for your growth, to come together like this and to be willing to push yourselves to receive the light, to hold the light, to give out
the light, so that you can have that feeling of being in the flow from Above to below. You are in the nexus of the figure-eight flow of energy from the ascended masters that then, through your chakras, is spread out to the entire population. It gives that
shift in the collective consciousness so that the discontent of the people is channeled in a positive direction and they suddenly see a positive way forward instead of just being dissatisfied and wanting to overthrow the status quo without having any direction.
You have seen in past ages how the fallen beings have managed to take the discontent of the people and create a violent revolution that overthrew the old power elite, only to put in a new power elite that was even more oppressive than the old one. You have
seen this so many times, even in North Korea where you saw the same thing. You saw it in China with Mao, you saw it with the Bolsheviks in Russia, and you saw it after the French revolution and so many other places. This, of course, we do not desire to see
repeated and that is why again I say to the old power elite, I speak to those who are the more benevolent among the power elites in the established democracies: “It is in your own best interest to wake up and realize that you will have to bring in direct
democracy either as an enlightened peaceful transition or by having the people vote for more and more extremist candidates that create more chaos in your nation than you would like to see.”
It is time to awaken those who can be awakened and realize that we have entered a new phase. It is irrevocable; there is no way to turn back the clock. Status quo has been disturbed and it is a matter of bringing forth the next logical step for the
