The Blue Bird by Maeterlinck

4-14-17     High-level corruption has become the norm in former Soviet republics. Yanukovych and Medvedev just want to “live grandly” –or at least “no worse than others” live.  The “others” in this case are oligarchs, to whom such political leaders feel it is only natural to compare themselves….

An investigation by Transparency International Russia revealed the reason.  Fifteen years earlier, the authorities had granted permission to build a kindergarten at the site, stipulating that no other form of construction was admissible.

Two years ago, however, firms with close ties to one of Moscow’s deputy mayors became shareholders of the company renting that land.  Soon afterward, municipal authorities granted permission to construct an apartment building on the site.  The land’s value shot up by 900 percent.  It would be logical for the mayor to fire his deputy for such conduct, but the official remains at his post.  The same is true of Medvedev.

And these are only few (albeit high-profile) examples of how tens of thousands of Russian officials operate on every government level.  They engage in rent-seeking, attempting to earn money illegally from the market segments they are entrusted to regulate….Every market segment has its own “winners” that always come out on top thanks to their official ties.  That places the whole country in an institutional trap: reforms are only possible to the extent that they do not violate the interests of officials who are on the take.       https://themoscowtimes.com/articles/on-the-money-op-ed-57718

Every man shall bear his own burden and not one jot or tittle of the Law shall pass till all be fulfilled.  whatsoever a man soeth that will he also reap….As Revelation says, “He that killeth with the sword must be killed with the sword.”  This is why we have now come upon a time at the conclusion of this 2000 year period (and more) when the Earth is in such darkness.  We are having to face our own karma.      -Messenger Elizabeth Clare Prophet:  Inner Perspectives, 2003,  chapter 35

   (In the 1908 play by Maurice Maeterlinck,) The Blue Bird, two children–Tyltyl and Mytyl–are on a quest to find the Blue Bird.  They come to a blue palace where little children are waiting to be born and masterful beings are directing them.  Father Time comes as the children are about to be born and ushers them onto a ship.  As the ship sails away toward Earth each one can hear in the distance the voices of expectant mothers singing for the arrival of their children.

Upon interviewing the little children Tyltyl and Mytyl find that each child is going forth with a mission.  The children are not allowed to be born unless they have something special to bring to Earth.  so they begin to tell Tyltyl and Mytyl what they are going to do:  one will become a scientist, one will become the ruler of worlds, one will have remedies for sicknesses.

It is not my own soul but the soul of each one of us that remembers coming with a mission.  And I call that mission the divine plan or the inner blueprint….The first thing that heals the longing of the soul to find God is the recognition that we were each born with a cosmic purpose and a specific divine plan.  The second is the recognition that there are masterful beings functioning just beyond the physical plane, referred to by various names in the scriptures of East and West.       -ibid., chapter 1
