WHAT IS GOVERNMENT?


Government comes from the divine presence of our inner being. The presence residing in us is the Governor of our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. That inward Governor is the source of all the goodness that exists in our soul. We need that Governor to live and thrive from within nations in every part of the world. It is then that goodness thrives from country to country in governments around the globe. Opposition to that divine Governor is equivalent to hostilities to the goodness within a nation.

The Governor of our inner being is the source that produces the spiritual fruit to thrive within us. That fruit brings tranquility of thoughts, soothes our emotions, and moderates our behavior. Those fruits include peace, meekness and gentleness to calm and stabilize us. In addition, the fruits of love, goodwill, and kindness harmonize us socially. Furthermore, there are faith, joy, and goodness to give us enjoyment for the present, and optimism for the future. Moreover, the fruits of perseverance, self-control, and patience gives us the staying power for a fruitful course. When those fruits of the spirit blossoms within nations, there are peace, love, faith, and perseverance in fellowship worldwide. Opposition to the spiritual fruit is equivalent to hostility to the social cohesion within a nation.

HEALTH

The inward Governor desires that we feel healthy within ourselves through the spiritual fruit. That provides health within our thoughts, emotions, and behaviors through love, peace, faith, and perseverance. That contributes to the health of the citizenship from person to person. Citizens who convey that healthy spirit within their communities contributes to a vibrant nation. That is the source of a well government.

SECURITY
The inward Governor desires that we feel safe and secure within ourselves through the spiritual fruit. That provides a feeling of safety and security of our inner being through peace, meekness, and gentleness. That contributes to the tranquility of the citizenship from person to person. Citizens who convey that peaceful spirit within their communities contribute to a safe and secure nation. That is the source of a stable government.

BELONGING

The inward Governor desires that we feel acceptance within ourselves through the spiritual fruit. That provides an inner sense of belonging by experiencing love, goodwill, and kindness within our souls. That spirit contributes to the acceptance of one another as citizens, inducing a place of belonging for everyone. Citizens who convey that spirit of tolerance within their communities contribute to a place of belonging to that nation. That is the source of an acceptable government that belongs united with other nations.

SELF-WORTH

The inward Governor desires that we feel a sense of worth and esteem within ourselves through the spiritual fruit. That provides respect for ourselves, and others, through faith, joy, and goodness. That contributes to the optimism within the self-worth of the citizenship from person to person. Citizens who convey that spirit of mutual respect within their communities contribute to the esteem of the nation. That is the source of a government worthy of respect.

SELF-EXPRESSION
The inward Governor desires that our self-expression flows through the spiritual fruit. Our words and deeds should be fluent with kindness, gentleness, goodness, and self-control. That contributes to productive communication of the citizenship from person to person. Citizens who convey that fruitful exchange within their communities contribute to beneficial expression of ideas within the nation. That is the source of an approachable and expressive government.

Some people will deny that the inner Governor of our soul relates to the rule of governments within nations. That inmost presence is the generator of spiritual fruit. Some oppose the fruitful qualities of that divine Governor with the intent of creating anger, sadness, and hostilities within various countries around the world. They refuse to relate mutually with those in touch with the inward Governor. Even so, acceptance of that
divine presence is the only way to a fruitful nation of love, peace, faith, and perseverance.


There are reservoirs of people who oppose the divine Governor of our inward being, thus creating negativism to community cohesion. The attitudes that exit from them include pessimism, agitation, and hostility to managers, government agencies, and community harmony. They oppose the qualities of inner goodness, peace, and love, which creates cruel intent to social harmony and governing entities. That hostility transfers through the hard and dry fruitlessness of thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. They transmit their frustrations with ill-intent to perpetrate harm to the social structure.   

Attitudes of anti-Government sentiments enter through the value we feel for our worth. When others are hostile to the goodness of the divine inner Governor, we might begin to feel hated, worthless, alienated, and belittled. We begin to seek acceptance within our unfruitful feelings, which becomes a place of belonging among those with anti-social and anti-Government sentiments. Those who are susceptible to those hostile intentions are unaware of the divine Governor within them. They do not feel the spiritual fruit within their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors. That fruit of the spirit is essential to govern relationships within the community.

We can interrupt the cycle of cruel intentions to social cohesion. That is done by responding to community experiences, work situations, and governing authorities through the soft, moist, and tender qualities of our inmost being. That is where the spiritual fruit thrives in us, which are the resources of the supreme Governor of our soul. The resources of the spirit's fruit are rewards for honoring the deity that lives in us.

We can make the assessment that the Governor of our inner being is the source for successful governments. The diagnosis is that some people oppose that divine Governor, the producer of spiritual fruit, resulting in turmoil within a nation. Even so, we plan to honor the authority of that divine Governor, and to welcome the good fruit in our lives. We implement that plan by being receptive to the soft and moist qualities within us to bring social cohesion. The evaluation of that plan is through the spiritual fruit. When the fruit of love, peace, faith, and perseverance transfers through us to our community, we are successful.
