And such a young country we are! Composed originally by diverse American Indian tribes and European immigrants, we are now a very cosmopolitan nation welcoming people from all over the world.
Did you know that each country is represented by an "egregore", a symbolic entity formed in the invisible world by the collective thoughts and feelings of a country, religion or group representing the sum total of the will of the community? For example, the egregore of France is the cockerel; of Russia, the bear; of Japan, the dragon; of England, the lion; of United States and Germany, the eagle; and that of Canada is the beaver, etc. Each egregore protects and helps the aggregate it belongs to and may even fight other egregores.
It is not politic or economy that will change the world for the better but a conscious choice of its wisest citizens to engage in establishing peace within themselves. Peace is the result of an inner state of harmony. Harmony between the different elements, forces, functions, thoughts, feelings and actions that compose a human being. Most people seek external satisfaction with material possessions and pleasures but neglect the existence of the soul and spirit. It is as if they worked only with the bone and muscular systems neglecting the nervous and auric systems. Yet, it is the subtle plane that governs matter, not the other way around.
A basic rule to know what directs our world or activities is to measure them by the stick of the "personality" or the "individuality". The personality is the little self, the ego, that always seeks its own interests at the detriment of others. The individuality is the higher Self, the impersonal Self that is altruist, generous like the sun, sharing its light, love and life without expecting anything in return. By measuring our thoughts, feelings and actions with this stick, we are better able to catch the personality before it takes charge and we can thus establish a growing space for the expression of the individuality.
The Initiates and Sages of the past and the present are all in agreement with the adage "Know thyself" that was written at the Temple of Apollo in Delphi. This implies to observe and analyze the many manifestations of the lower self and direct these energies to a more noble and sublime goal. When we manage to live in our higher Self, we experience the Kingdom of God which is not in a country, nor a place above in the sky, it is a state of consciousness, a state of peace and harmony. By working on ourselves and establishing such a state, our aura touches others uplifting them and inviting them to reach the same state. If many people work on themselves and decide to participate, dedicate their energies to such a high ideal as the Kingdom of God, then the whole world could eventually be moved to its realization: Heaven on Earth.
By the way, the egregore of peace or Universal White Brotherhood is the white dove.
May you live as one with your higher Self!
