Every man, every woman who has to take up the service of government, must ask themselves two questions: 'Do I love my people in order to serve them better?

When you look in the mirror, what do you see? Do you see the real you, or what you have been conditioned to believe is you? The two are so, so different. One is an infinite consciousness capable of being and creating whatever it chooses, the other is an illusion imprisoned by its own perceived and programmed limitations.
