Intelligent and intentional design began Evolution and has always been part of Evolution.
Constitutions were no more and no less, than verbal traditions that began when “Sonta En” (“Fonta”) said no to a two fisted grab for meat off the spit. Then She made it understood as to why this must be. Morality was being taught.
For over 990,000 years, these verbal traditions, as to “Right” and “wrong” were Humanity’s Constitutions.
Then these Morals began to be painted on and carved in, stone.
Now, these Constitutional Ways We Do Things informs Us the way We should Live. In Our Times now, this taught Morality can be found in Verbal traditions (spoken and sung), on and in stone and other hard durable substances, in writing on softer substances and can even be found in electronic digital magic on screens large and small. They are probably even part of the entries in the “Akashik Records” of the Spiritual World.
Constitutions have proven themselves to be helpful, durable and conducive to Evolution in All CREATION, as well as for Humanity Of Urth. They are intended to help Us see and practice the Better Rules of Living. They have come from the Best Of Us.
They have assisted many Civilizations to be the best they could be (according to the times) and have provided Ideas for New Constitutions, when these were needed by New designs and forms of Society. Cultures rise and collapse, each in their turn, making way for Evolutionary Advancement through fresh new combinations of cultural elements.
Civilizations fail and become building material for new Tribal Identities to utilize; sometimes reaching only a certain strength as singular societies, sometimes aggregating into stronger social groups. All have their Constitutions as part of this Evolutionary Progress.
New Ideas for New imagined Tribes are stimulated, from the disappointment and stress of dominating “civilized” cultures. The ones that increasingly fail the mandates of their Constitutions and slide into selfishness and corruption.
We are now at a point where We can intentionally and with good purpose, develop Better Constitutions for Our Tribe. We can do this even before We are a tribe. The Better the Constitution, the Better the Tribe.
What should a Tribal Constitution be? Well, We could start with the Idea that a Constitution should be intended and designed to help every Individual, of the Tribe, “to be the best they can be” and that there are certain guidelines and tolerances within which to keep Individual Behavior. Minimums of Behavior have to be decided upon and Excesses have to identified and dealt with. Between and out of these, Ideological boundaries, the desired Good Life can be Lived by the Members of the Tribe. Pressures from Nature and Other Cultures will have to be also dealt with…in as Positive and Productive ways as possible.
Now, in Our Times, We are fortunate to be able to draw upon previous Constitutions for Inspiration and influence. Most, if not all, Constitutions, are intended to call to the best in and of Us, for the sake of Good Strong Cultures and Good Living. Usually as “improvement” over what has been suggested before. This “call” serves Evolution and CREATION.
I feel that it is my mission to help develop a New Constitution for my imagined and desired People, the “HamaNar”…the People of Hope. I see myself as the forward scout and trail marker for them. This can be seen in all that I have done and do in my written works…which I Hope will be one day discovered and utilized by them, as they rise to their moment.
The next thing I should do, is begin to write a suggested Constitution for them to build upon, in their own unique tribal way.
A Suggested Constitution for My “HamaNar People”
We The HamaNar People, a Tribe of Hopeful and Cooperating Individuals of Good Spirits and Minds, do discuss, agree upon, design and propose, the following declaration to be the beginning of Our Tribal Constitution.
We Love CREA. We are the Children Of CREA and sincerely desire to be Children that gives, in Our Lives and Living, Happiness to CREA.
To be able to give Happiness to CREA, WE will endeavor to discover what CREA desires of Us and fulfill those desires as Ascendant Souls, that have begun Our Immortal Careers in the Finite Realm of CREATION.
We intend to Live Our Lives as beneficial assets to the planet Urantia (Urth) and Our Planet’s Nature and Environments. As We become more experienced and Wiser, We will become more beneficial to Our First World. We know We will have much to learn and will always have much to learn…this being A Way Of CREATION.
We intend to live in Peace with all of Humanity, that will Live in Peace with Us.
We intend to not be a burden, detriment, or threat to any Other Culture that Lives on Our World with Us. But They must do their share in this undertaking for Peaceful Co-existence. If need be, We will defend Ourselves.
We will strive to stay within Our Tribal Territory, even to the point where We practice Wise and Loving control of Our population numbers. We intend to stay within Our Boundaries and need Other Tribes and Nations to do the same.
We intend to be an asset for all Other Tribes and Nations and treat Them Fairly and Justly in all contacts with Them. We expect to be treated the same as We treat Others.
We will Democratically Govern Ourselves, through the Good Heart and Mind Participation, of each of Us, as is possible and productive to do.
We will practice Our Self Governance every day. The Councils constantly being active in the self Watchfulness of Our Culture.
We seek, in Ourselves, Good heart and Mind.
We Honor those with Good Heart and Mind, from the least of Us to the Best Of Us. This includes Elders, Men, Women and Children, each having their councils, as part of the whole Tribal Council.
All suggestions will be respectfully considered and the Best of these will be acted upon.
Reward of Recognition will be given to Those Of Us who contribute to the Well Being of Our Tribe, beyond what might be considered “Normal”. “Normal” always a reflection of Tribal “High” Ideas, Aspirations and Goals. We The HamaNar, are an intentionally Evolving Tribe, whenever We can achieve this.
We intend to continuously study the established “Standards”, “Guidelines” and “Goals”, that We practice in Daily Living, always watching for Way To Improve Them…as well as to Express Them.
All “Laws” will be considered and formed, through Individual Voting, by every Member of Our Tribe.
All “Laws” will be constantly reviewed, in the context of how they serve specific cases of violations that come under them.
Consensus of Individual opinion is the most desirable goal in voting.
A “Strong Majority” in The Vote, is the second most desirable goal in voting. “Strong Majority” being defined as 70% as opposed to 30%, or less.
If a “Strong Majority” is not achieved, then further examination and discussion of the issue, if circumstances permit, is called for. If circumstances do not “permit”, then a narrow Majority Margin is used, until circumstances permit.
In the case of “Dire Circumstances”, Leadership will come from previously decided votes of We The People. We endeavor to be prepared for the less desirable turn of events, while We continuously promote efforts toward Our Ideals.
Our Constitution will include well considered guidelines, in the form of “Standards Of Decency”. Our “Standards Of Decency” will ever be amenable to the demands of specific circumstances that are unforeseen, while, at the same time, urging the most beneficial response that promotes the General Welfare of The HamaNar People and all others who come under Our Tribal Jurisdiction.
In Our Constitution will be listed and explained, Values and Virtues and the High Ideals that make Us what We are.
Initially, Our Constitution will address itself to the legitimate needs of Individuals, Families, Clans and the whole Tribe. Connective Councils of “Elders”, “Peak Representatives”, “Youth Assembly Members”, “Clan Spokespersons” and “SevNar Advisory Counselors” will assist with their particular perspectives regarding HamaNar Tribal Life, needs and goals.
Our Constitution admonishes Us to constantly, as much as possible, make Real and Living, the Ideals that We Know…what We Believe to be the Highest and Best Goodnesses and Truths.
Our Highest Aspiration in Life, being to Live so as to Honor and Worship Our CREATOR.
We would be Worthy Children Of GOD.
