11.11.11 at 11.11 World Freedom Day

October 31, 2011 - by Steve Beckow

As a sovereign citizen of Planet Earth, I declare Nov. 11, 2011 to be World Freedom Day.

On 11-11-11, I invite all the people of the world to reclaim whatever freedom and power have been lost to them in all aspects of our common life – politics, economics, education, religion, relationships, medicine, and all other areas.

As a non-violent act of conscious resolve, I ask everyone on Earth to stop whatever they're doing at 11:11 (local time) on 11-11-11 and spend one minute in silence, not working (unless in emergency services), not consuming, and not distracting ourselves.

Those who safely can I invite to come down to the center of the village, town or city to join with our brothers and sisters everywhere and spend one minute in silence, upon leaving which everyone will utter the simple statement: “This world is free. It has always been free. It will always be free.”

At 11:11 on 11/11/11 we'll show each other how strong and universal is the desire on Earth to take back our political freedom, economic justice, religious tolerance, racial understanding, social harmony, and global peace.

We have no intention of harming anyone in the process of expressing ourselves on this matter. It's not necessary and it's not desirable or advisable. Peace and freedom won by violence does not last. Peace and freedom that leaves residue invites retaliation. We don't want to leave a residue or invite retaliation. And we don't need to in order to win back for ourselves our peace, freedom, and harmony.

There's no need to organize anything for World Freedom Day. There's no need for leadership of this event. Everyone is a leader of it, an organizer, and a participant. The action at the heart of it, lasting but one minute, will have accomplished its end no matter what the result. The thought will have been shared by everyone on Earth who knows about it that this world will have its freedom, harmony, and peace restored and will not settle for less.

We've Entered a New Age

Whether we know it or not, we've entered a new era of human existence. Some call it the New Age; others the Sat Yuga; others the Age of Aquarius. However you refer to it, it's an age in which humanity will have new economic and financial arrangements, worldwide relief from poverty, labour-saving technology, democratic regimes, racial equality, religious tolerance, and world peace.

Our new world works on the basis of service to others, rather than service to self. It's a world that honors the peacemaker rather than the warmaker, the compassionate rather than the ruthless, the uniters rather than the dividers.

The 1% of the world who've been concentrating wealth and power in their own hands are welcome to join the 99% in building a world that works for everyone, with no one left out. We intend to welcome everyone and to see to the needs of those who suffer, whether from hunger, poverty, illness, age, or disability.

If we are to be poor in this new world, which I don't believe we will, then let us share that poverty equally.

Ours is a world where Muslim, Christian, Jew and anyone else is is seen as worthy of the Kingdom of Heaven by dint of being a child of God, where people of all ways of life, orientations, hopes, and dreams have the same right to pursue their own wishes, without interference, providing they harm no one else.

It's a world that no longer tolerates political corruption, financial fraud, environmental sabotage, media censorship, citizen surveillance, and manufactured wars.

It's a world that serves people not profits, the divine in everyone and not the glitter in society, and the planet as our home and not as a resource to be plundered.

There is no natural obstacle to people everywhere being free. There is no reason why anyone should languish under a political dictatorship or economic slavery. And there is no reason to accept, any longer, that each individual does not have the right to say how their lives will be run, what they will worship, whom they will befriend or marry, etc.

We've reached the stage in the evolution of humanity when we can throw off all chains and restrictions and emancipate the mind and heart. We've reached the stage where we don't wish any longer to be divided and conquered but to be reunited and reconciled. We've reached the stage where we're ready to forgive what has gone before as long as what has gone before now comes to an end.

Please circulate this call to action to everyone you can reach.

11-11-11 is a day when all of humanity breathes free, knows it is free, and celebrates being free. We are free. We have always been free. We will always be free.
