     Those who have visited Monticello and stood in the room in which Thomas Jefferson did his writing, may have had the experience of the high angelic vibration that remains there more than two hundred years later. The light of inspiration which found its way into Jefferson's pen was not just his own, but formed out of the overlighting presence of the Archangels and Ascended Masters who assisted in the creation of a unique document - the Declaration of Independence - pivotal in the history of the evolution of man's consciousness.

      This document gave voice to words that had never before been spoken, and to principles that shaped the foundation of a nation's spirit. The writing of this document was, and is, not just a matter of history. Rather, it represents a current of light originating in the founding principles which remains today in the depth of American consciousness, moving a nation toward the fulfillment of its purpose for being.

     The current of light which infuses the Declaration of Independence, also forms the 'heart of America'. Its purpose, to bring into being the destiny of a nation. For each nation has its own soul and its own destiny, and that which is most fundamental to America is both the profound and eternal truth that "all men are created equal, with unalienable rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness," and, the mesage of "E pluribus Unum," "Out of many, One". The first asserts the fundamental freedom of the individual to create and pursue their own life. The second affirms the goal of unity - that out of a multiplicity of freedoms shall come a unity of purpose and of consciousness, founded both in nationhood and in God. It is the soul-destiny of America to bring together these two truths, and to create a way through which both can be realized upon the earth.

     This, then, is the foundation for the 'spirit of America', formed more than two hundred years ago yet living today in the depths of our national consciousness. Within these depths, the words of the Declaration resound as a guiding light, both timeless and temporal, a tribute to the abiding principles that gave birth to a nation:

     "When in the course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle, them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

     We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed..."

     These words, echoing through the centuries, form the heart and soul of America's consciousness. They remain as a guiding light within times of peril and within times of hope, for all to see and remember.

Policy versus Principle

     We must give to other nations what we ask for for ourselves: the right to choose their own destiny. What has been hailed by some as a 'Pax Americana' - U.S. militarization in the service of global peace - will, in the end, not bring peace, but the deterioration of the most deeply held American values.
