Special Praise Goes to the One who Declares Peace First
I’m starting to get a little insight into the necessity of proceeding with care in our legal proceedings.
Archangel Michael has said:
“The key to creating Nova Earth is not about punishment and retribution. … Be very discerning in your judgments and in your condemnations of others. If you continue – and I don’t mean you; I mean the collective – if the pattern of imprisonment continues, of shackling, rather than re-education or redirection, then that is the paradigm that will continue upon this planet. ” (1)
For me, of course, that opens a huge new field of study and endeavor. And I’m trying to wrap my head around the basis for non-retributive justice and the difficulties in its way.
What I’m seeing at this moment is the difficulty of interrupting the attack/revenge cycle in the world today.
To do that, someone needs to go first, and whoever does risks looking weak in a patriarchal world that values strength. They risk being ridiculed and ostracized. In past ages they could have been imprisoned or executed.
There’s an immense psychological barrier toward who goes first. If you watch this video, see if you notice the first man removing his helmet:

Notice that the person doesn’t look around for support but just does it. That takes courage.
The person risks being called the instigator of a police revolt or whatever charge their superiors wish to throw at them.
Larger disputes between nations are both more difficult and easier. They’re more difficult because disputes in the Middle East are millennia-old, ramified, and dug-in.
They’re easier because a head of state can declare for peace as has occurred in several countries. The declaration of peace is a hopeful sign.
Of course lightworkers know that the eventual outcome will be pleasing to all. But getting it started is what seems so hard.
Look how long it’s taken me to divest myself of my hostile constructed self.
The agreements we need? We agree to lay down arms. We agree to call conflict quits. We agree to stop seeking revenge. We agree to submit our disputes to lawful mediation and resolution. This is what we need to do.
And special praise goes to the one who declares peace first.
