This is Friday, March 4, 2011. World Freedom Day is Sunday, March 6. This may be my last chance to communicate about that day, perhaps the last chance that you will have to read something on it. So let me summarize the purpose of that day and how I see its form and results.
World Freedom Day is an act of reclamation. On that day, not only do we reclaim a sense of our freedom, but we reclaim freedom on behalf of every person who is unfree, enchained, suppressed, exploited, or oppressed and cannot gather with us or claim it on their own behalf.
Reclaiming one’s freedom is an internal act. We are free because we are free within. If we are not free internally, we will never be free externally. So freedom begins with our inner experience and acknowledgment of it.
In fact, of course, we are always free, always sovereign, always individual and independent. But we may not live in the experience of it and we may not have the rights and privileges that go along with the recognition of it. On World Freedom Day, we begin to walk a road that will lead from that inextinguishable inner freedom to its realization in the conditions of our external life.
Most of us think of ourselves as a physical body and nothing else. But, unknown to us, we are in fact much more. We are also a spirit in that physical body and we could say much more than that. But I don’t want to dwell on knowledge that might divide us.
I mention it because there will be far more happening on World Freedom Day than what we see and do. Our coming together will create a thoughtform which itself has potency. That thoughtform sets in motion the operation of universal laws that themselves bring our relief from oppressive conditions to us. No one on Earth is strong enough to fly in the face of universal law.
On March 6, 2011, at 12 o’clock noon, I ask the people of the world who can safely do this just to gather in their town or city squares and be together as a common expression of their will to be free, and as a common acknowledgment of their internal freedom which they wish to see externalized as well.
I ask the media of the world to cover this event and not to ignore it. If you have received instructions not to cover it, don’t endanger your safety. Nothing in the end will stop the emergence of freedom.
At 12:30, I invite everyone so gathered to observe a minute of silence that acknowledges everyone on Earth who has contributed to this worldwide movement that will win us all our external freedom. I invite us especially to remember Mohamed Bouazizi whose sacrificial and supreme act of defiance drew our attention to the oppressive and despotic conditions under which so many of us live.
That moment of silence having been accomplished, the external “ritual” of the day is complete. I ask for nothing more complex or organized than that. The rest is accomplished by the mere fact of our gathering and being together.
Simply coming together as an expression of our resolve to be free is in itself the most potent thing we can do. We need not ask ourselves what else do we intend to do on that day. Everything else we do is extra. Sing if you wish, dance, laugh, look in each other’s eyes.
I ask those who are able to gather to reclaim freedom on behalf of those who are not able to gather. We reclaim freedom on behalf of populations who cannot speak freely, assemble freely, or march freely.
I ask that all be done peacefully, with no harm to anyone else. If we are not peaceful, if we harm others, we again invoke a universal law that will bring harm to what we do, if not now then eventually, and turn what could be a permanent accomplishment into a temporary achievement. We serve ourselves, others, and the cause of freedom best by being peaceful and harmonious.
While as yet we do not know it as a global population, or if we do know it we may not fully appreciate it, there is an order to things. There are unseen forces that operate to help us but will not violate our free will. They must be invited to assist us if we want their help. These unseen forces are known to all the wisest among us. On World Freedom Day, we are invoking their assistance.
To all the despots of the world, to the elites of the world, to the organized criminals and others who exert control over us and have for centuries, we intend you no harm. But release us from your grip you must. There is no stopping a population that yearns to breathe free. Your attempts to stop us are doomed to failure.
To soldiers and police who may be called to duty that day, do not harm your fellow citizens. You too must live among us. We are those who receive and appreciate your services. Do not foul your nest. Protect us from those who would harm us. Join us inwardly if you cannot join us outwardly. If ordered to shoot, shoot in the air. If ordered to stop us, stop us gently.
We only ask that those who mean to control or harm us step aside. There is nothing else that you must do. Come join us. Or if you will not, then let us be and let us pass. For we are on the move and we will not stop until the entire world is free, externally as well as internally. You cannot stop us.
Mark well this day. Our freedom was not declared on this day for the first time. It has been declared by the dawning of each new day and will never not be declared. Freedom is our natural condition. Control is unnatural and cannot last.
Come back again into friendship with us. Do not harm your fellow planetary citizens. Do not invite upon yourselves the harm that your own actions bring to you by universal law.
On March 6, 2011, the world declares to itself and to everyone on this planet: we will be free. Our wish to breathe free is unstoppable. Come join us.
(To anyone who receives this, please translate into your own language, circulate to your lists, post on your site, tweet and blog it, and see that everyone knows that March 6, 2011 is World Freedom Day.)
