Hello, this is Frank O’Collins for Thursday 30th October, 2014 and thank you for taking the time to read and listen to the Ucadia blog this week entitled “The 5 Stages of forming a valid Ucadia Campus” as an outline of the practical and real steps that need to be taken in order to create a valid local Ucadia Community. In other words – what specific items need to be done? And what elements need to be in place in order to say without question that a valid Ucadia Campus is established? The blog and recording tonight then is part 4 of the series we have been doing over the past few months on Ucadia Communities (see: Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3). Because it has been a few months, here is a quick recap of the first three parts of the series:
Part 1 of this series on Ucadia Communities was entitled “Ucadia Communities Part (1): An introduction and why we need to change from the failed models of society”. The blog and audio then outlined the various ancient models of community beginning with the Family, then the Tribe, then the development of the Village and then larger Communities up to ultimately the idea of a Ucadia Campus being a sanctuary. In terms of the development of roles and activities, you can actually track this by going to Article 30 on “Sacred Offices” and have a look at Clause 30.4 and the 432 Great Offices of Heaven beginning with the Divine Office of Existence and flowing through to Clan or Family and then Tribe, Village, City and Community as well as the specific Ucadia Offices.
Part 2 of this series on Ucadia Communities was entitled “Ucadia Communities Part (2): A Different Perspective on Life and What does it mean to be a Ucadia Member?”. The blog and audio covered a review through “four perspectives” of some of the essential knowledge as to what it means to be a Ucadia Member and our own power and authority as opposed to believing somehow we need approval or acknowledgment from some Roman institution in order for everything we discuss to be validated. It is why we explained again our significance in respect to the Earth, the Sun and the Universe; and why we are already Divine Immortal Beings. We also covered the practical tips to a more joyful and abundant existence beyond looking for others to save us, or to blame others, or thinking our life is over or wasted. We then covered again the perspective on the foundation and benchmarks of law as well as the fact that it is our energy that underwrites any form of true credit and that we have all the credit through our Natural Rights that we will ever need. The major conclusion of this Part 2 blog and audio was that change and abundance is within our own grasp and that if we could just shake off those mind viruses and fears that hold us back, we do not need to keep making excuses that we are waiting for something to happen, or the permission of others. We do not need the Ucadia Model to be completely finished to move ahead or for Frank O’Collins to say or do or not say or not do something. We have the power – and it is us and it is you who is choosing to give up that power when you look for excuses or someone else to blame or for a reason not to try or change.
Part 3 then of this series on Ucadia Communities was entitled “Ucadia Communities Part (3): The Ucadia Campus and restoring the Golden Rule of Law, the Sacred Trust and Value of Effort within the local community” where we described and defined three very specific goals and objects of forming a valid Ucadia Campus being (1) to restore the Golden Rule of Law; and (2) to restore Sacred Trust between people and in the institutions and offices at a local community level; and (3) to restore Value and the Value of Effort and the Value of People at a local community in what they choose to do and how they choose to contribute and work together. So I hope and trust that those of you who have listened to all three audios and in particular this audio as the 3rd part of the series on Ucadia Communities found such goals and objectives both sensible and necessary. Now tonight, in part 4 of the series it is all about how we do it.
Ucadia Communities and the Parable of the Three Brothers
Now something that might come to mind when we are speaking of the practical steps in forming a valid Ucadia Campus or even a preliminary administration for other elements of Ucadia is the notion that we will be speaking about: forms, documents, checking and vetting and so forth; as well as how many people you need to have as part of forming a properly registered and valid Ucadia Campus.
Certainly, this is how various other groups that have sprung up consider forming a valid community– the filling in of forms, or payment of fees; and the creation of some internet Facebook page, or website or presence and then recruiting people. It is why there are literally hundreds of thousands of different communities and micro nations on the Internet all competing for your attention and for members.
Yes, the correct completion of paperwork and validation that the people who are petitioning to be recognized as a valid registered Ucadia Campus are real people and not sock puppets is a necessary step. However, it is actually the least important step and the most superficial of steps.
Sure the Internet enables you to whack up an Internet site and proclaim yourself to be a country or nation or church– and there is no shortage of websites claiming such things. But does that make it equal to an existing country of hundreds of millions of members? I assure you, I am not disputing the moral and legal principles of equality, I am simply reminding us that there is obviously a difference between a nation of three hundred million members and an internet based nation of one or two members.
For example, I have made no secret that the number of people who have actively redeemed their Ucadia membership is only in the thousands compared to some movements who have been around for only a few years or months that have gathered the names and addresses and details of hundreds of thousands of people. In the case of Ucadia, it has been much slower and much harder – in part because of the masses of information and how it is presented; and also in part because there have been a fair number of people creating confusion and fear by deliberately false and misleading claims in order to keep people away from Ucadia.
Let me use another example as to what I am trying to say in the form of the Parable from the sacred text known as Tara about the Three Brothers – from which a more well known and corrupted parable was created. Please let me read the parable to you and then I will explain the moral I am trying to make before we continue on the practical steps of creating a valid Ucadia Campus.
The Three Brothers
1 The goddess Ana did wish to test the character of man,
2 That they be worthy of her continued favor and protection.
3 But as her husband did so love mankind, she called upon the lesser gods to petition him instead.
4 Upon the plaint of Shu and Danu and Kel, Lord Bel did say thus:
5 If be not unfair thee gods, I grant such test. That by the volition of equal men ye shall decide.
6 Whereupon Ana selected three orphaned brothers and commanded Luki,
7 That he bring the fortune of land near the sea to the brothers.
8 The goddess Bris did bathe lands in spring with life,
9 And the first brother said to the others: I care not for effort,
10 For these days surely are enough and life is without worry.
11 My home shall be spun from these fine tall grasses,
12 And not a moment shall be wasted on hard labor.
13 The second brother said to the others: I be not as care free as thee,
14 For times will change and the cold winds shall come.
15 So I shall make my house of wood,
16 And my efforts shall be rewarded with peace.
17 The third brother said to the others: My foolish brothers,
18 This land be near the sea and surely upon Autumn Lug and in winter Mene shall test us.
19 I shall begin building my home deeper into the earth of thick stones,
20 That neither storms, nor winter shall destroy me.
21 Thus when Autumn came and the god Lug did bring fierce storms,
22 And when Shu the god of wind and air did blow, the house of straw of the first brother was destroyed.
23 Then when Winter came, the goddess Mene did bring great snows and cold,
24 And Danu the goddess of rain and moisture did splinter and crush the house of wood of the second brother.
25 Only the house of the brother who made his home of stone survived.
26 Then Ana called upon Kel the goddess of the earth to rumble,
27 Yet as hard as she tried, the home of stone of the third brother stood.
28 Finally upon spring, the great Lord Bel called out to Ana and the lesser gods to cease.
29 And spoke thus:Though man is tested and many fail,
30 Enough remember the lessons of previous lives,
31 And choose by their own volition to be more than beasts.
32 For if but one chooses to be free, all are free,
33 And thus no god nor man may claim another to be slave or beast.
Like I said, you are probably familiar with the 3 little pigs version of this parable. The reason I chose to recount this parable from the sacred text Tara is because in a sense Life is about making choices and the depth of preparation and work we are prepared to make, versus treating life superficially.
Sure, Ucadia could have been and still could be like so many other movements and rush toward growing numbers of people by making grandiose promises, or offers or claims; or even simply encouraging those willing to step up to be registered and proclaim themselves to be holding some office or body. But instead, for better or for worse, Ucadia has been slowly and steadily building one block of stone; putting in place one block of knowledge at a time – even though this has placed huge strain on me personally and others, and of course, has allowed wave after wave of people to come and go.
In fact, since the time that I first started doing Talkshoe broadcasts and then later these blogs, there have been no fewer than twelve global movements of straw and sticks that have variously stolen parts of Ucadia and proclaimed themselves to be the answer to the problems of those willing to subscribe and pay. Twelve movements that have created tens of thousands of internet posts, millions of hits, hundreds of thousands of subscribers and donations and ultimately hundreds of people who have lost even more or been sent to prison when the seasons change.
No matter how hard I have tried, it has been impossible to stop people from being stupid and lazy in their thinking in terms of ideas of sticks and straw. No matter how earnestly I have exposed the sheer lunacy and inconsistencies and flaws in each disinformation scam movement and crazy guru moneymaking system, it has often fallen on deaf ears. For example, I have warned and I warn people again against the utter insanity and stupidity in the latest scam movement falsely claiming relief and remedy via the technical concept of “reversionary interest” and then lodging UCC filings; and then the complete insanity of surrendering birth certificates and other instruments. People would have to be completely bat-shit crazy to follow such a scam – but because it is promoted by an overly confident, angry sounding man who seems to have an answer for everything, onward people follow to their doom.
Anyway, the point of the parable is not about stopping people throwing money and their lives away at such scams, but the fact that neither Ucadia or the creation of Ucadia communities is about superficial acts – that by simply filling in a piece of paper you magically become almighty and all powerful, or that by gathering a list of names you suddenly have a community – you do not. You only have a community when you can demonstrate you have a common respect for the Golden Rule of Law and Natural Rights of Justice and Fair Process; and you only have a community when people trust one another and are prepared to spend time and do things together; and you only have a community when people have integrated their places of living and lives together toward common goals and purposes of real actions – not text on a computer or yet another website.
So tonight, as we go through the 5 stages of developing a valid Ucadia Campus, be prepared to see steps and points that have nothing to do with filling out pieces of paper, or any other superficial act and instead relate to whether we are ready; and whether we are ready to work with others who are ready to change the way we think and live and act, regardless of whether that is known as a Ucadia Campus or not. Let us start then with the most obvious and the first Stage of forming a valid Ucadia Campus that is whether or not you are actually ready?
Ucadia Campus Development Stage #1 – You are Ready
There is an old maxim that “You cannot help anyone (your family, your community) until you can help yourself”. You have probably heard this maxim many times, yet it remains true to the point we are discussing here as the first in a series of four basic Laws of Self, that if not in action mean you are not ready to have anything to do with forming a valid Ucadia Campus. This maxim is the first law called the Law of Perspective.
Over the years, I have received literally hundreds of emails from people who told me how difficult they were finding their own survival, or that they were facing major court issues, or financial issues yet wanted to form a Ucadia community or make some major change in their own existing communities.
So let’s think about this for a moment – how can anyone help others in such a situation where they face losing their home, or their freedom or their family and expect them to then go out and build a sustainable and secure community? It is just not real. Instead it is more about denial, or emotional displacement than it is about real and effective contribution.
If you cannot or will not get your own house in order then anything you do with others – particularly with communities is only going to make matters worse for yourself and all those you let down. That is why no one can hold an office of a Ucadia Community or found a Ucadia Community while they have some major impending court case in the Western-Roman system over their heads – not because of any prejudice but because it is impossible for someone in that position to be an effective and functioning member.
Nor can anyone be effective in helping their own community if they cannot get their priorities in order; and if they have no perspective. People who are unable to get things into perspective and into priority are like a loose wheel – they risk spinning off and out of control at precisely the time you need them to be stable – that is why anyone who fails the Law of Perspective of Self is not ready to form a Ucadia Campus.
This leads us to the second Law of Self for this discussion being the maxim, “You cannot think and act clearly until you stop addiction to substances that negatively affect your ability to think and act”. I call this the Law of Reason and it is essential for learning for discernment in times of challenge and for functioning.
I am not passing a moral judgment on narcotics or hallucinogens. If you have read any of the material on Ucadia or listening to my previous blogs and audios then you will know that I think that the prohibition against naturally grown pain killers to promote and protect the pharmaceutical industry and their patented synthetic pain killers is one of the greatest crimes against humanity in history. The very fact it is continuing shows just how much money and greed and corruption continues.
Instead, I am talking about the fact – and it is a fact – that you cannot expect your brain to perform at an optimal level and for sustaining reasoning necessary for actions whilst you continue to partake in substances that by their nature alter your conscious being and health. Now, here is where it gets tricky for many and why we also need to be honest where the use of substances can be proven to be an addiction. For when that voice inside your head says, “what is he talking about?” – “I perform better when I take this or that”; or “I actually learn better when I consume this substance” – then you are potentially stepping into the realm of addiction – because you are experiencing the argument of internal denial.
Sugar and oxidized table salt and fluoride and bromide in bread and other products are incredibly dangerous. I am talking about those substances as a top priority first, before I am speaking about people who smoke cannabis or drink lots of alcohol. The point I am trying to make is simply this – you live in a society that wants you to be addicted to substances that negatively alter the chemistry of your brain so you cannot perform up to your optimum, so you are distracted, so you cannot learn to your full potential. That alone should be the warning sign to reconsider for whom that inner voice is saying, “Everything is fine”, is really working! [I do not know how to properly correct this]
If people are so drugged out, zoned out and phased out by chemicals, food additives, electro-magnetic radiation that they effectively act like lazy zombies, then how on earth do you think that you can effect any positive change while also choosing to be a physical zombie as well?
This leads us to the third law of self, being the Law of Empathy namely “Unless you can feel your own heart, you cannot feel the emotions of others or any sense of true love”. Love is not a mental thought, or some simple expression – it is an emotion that begins with absolutely feeling a deep connection from your heart and then the rest of your body. If you cannot feel your heart, then it is not love – no matter how much you lie to yourself and to others.
And if you cannot feel true love, then anything you do will be as an agent for this existing slave model of a world – no matter what you say to the contrary. For if you want to be truly free of this world of madness and slavery – then free your heart first. If you want to see the end of the Mundi Mind virus then forgive yourself, feel your heart and feel the emotions of others and forgive them as well.
Why do you think they promote snuff videos of executions now on the nightly news, or keep us addicted to food that is killing us? Because they do not want any of us to feel anything. So if you cannot feel your heart, you are definitely not ready at all to form a Ucadia Campus.
The final Law is the Law of Simplicity that is, “If you do not make space in your heart and mind for what really matters, how can you ever find true balance and happiness?”
Why then do you think we live in a world where we are affronted with the call to consume and buy more crap? Because the more cluttered our lives, the less chance we will address addictions; and the less chance we will free our hearts and feel others; and the less chance we will free ourselves of the curses of this world.
So unless you are prepared to simplify your life and consume less stuff and seek less stuff and actually focus your energy on positive change – like those who trust in the Ucadia Financial Model and have contributed some of their debt notes for Ucadia Moneta to help this change – then you are not ready to form a Ucadia Campus.
Why do you think the phrase “money is a curse” keeps proving itself? In one sense the fiat and debt money in their system is an absolute curse that can only be released when balanced against Ucadia Moneta underwritten from a system of pure credit. It is why I have started providing to everyone who has contributed debt money notes with an accounting in Ucadia Moneta as a balance and a curse [or cure or remedy?] to these curses.
Yet those who are drowning in debt notes are also cursed by the fact that having so much of these notes means potentially owning and purchasing more stuff in their system until it is hard for people we call “wealthy” to feel, or to think about the absurdity of a life collecting tokens at the expense of their soul and the world around them.
So simplifying your life is about reducing your dependence on debt and not being addicted to constant shopping and the latest gadgets as well as giving yourself time to think by turning off your mobile phone and going for walks instead of being chained to a computer. It is about spending time with those you love and the simple pleasures of walking along a beach, or feeling the sun on your face or going to the zoo, or even just enjoying the serenity of a park or space.
So in a nutshell, if we do not have the Law of Perspective, the Law of Reason, the Law of Empathy and the Law of Simplicity in our lives, then we are not ready to form a Ucadia Campus. If we do – then we are ready to move to the second stage that is to form a Ucadia Family.
Ucadia Campus Development Stage #2 – Forming a Ucadia Family
Now by family, I am not referring to the original Latin meaning of the familia, but the way that most people know it today. A group of people, often connected by blood relation, who share close bonds of trust and unity. That is why I did not choose to use the word Clan.
As we discussed earlier in this series, and on numerous previous occasions within these blogs and audios, if you do not have trust between one another – you have nothing. As we have also explained, this breakdown of trust and absence of trust is no mystery – it is a deliberate and calculated strategy promoted by centralist forces through programs designed to breakdown and prevent connections of trust, forming at a local community.
So how do you build a family of like-minded people as the second stage of forming a Ucadia Campus? Well, even this is no mystery as there is nothing secret about forming close bonds. It begins about finding common interests. It begins with you as the leader and catalyst of forming a campus caring about the people you meet and remembering their names and being an active listener.
In fact, we could do well to remember what Dale Carnegie and others explained when they wrote about the same challenges almost a century ago. I won’t recite word for word what was said but there are some pertinent points updated minus the fake sales pitch:
#1 – Find people who share a common interest, values, morals and desire to know more; and
#2 – Be genuinely interested in what these other people as your equal have to say; and
#3 – Make a point at remembering names and key information offered to you but always keep confidence; and
#4 – Make suggestions for common activities in such a way that everyone can agree; and
#5- Close the loop on communication and be punctual; and
#6 – Whatever you say you will do – do it. But do not give your word so easily; and
#7 – Be honest, kind and sincere but never weak. No one has the right to impose or dump on you; and
#8 – Only do things and say things because it comes from the heart and is true, never because you want to be liked or feel self-important.
There are of course many other helpful suggestions. The point here being that if you are not doing these things and not engaging with people with whom you share a common positive interest and you are not acting in such a manner, then of course you are not going to form close bonds no matter what the common positive interests.
Now as to items that you can share together, I have listed three categories below with some suggestions and by no means are these an exhaustive lists:
1. Family Spiritual and Legal Development
+ Common Creed of Golden Rule of Law
+ Proclamation of Creed under Oath before Family (forming proof of Trust)
+ Register of Important Documents and Registrar of Records
2. Family Social Development
+Singing, Music Groups
+Picnics, Barbeques, Lunches, Breakfasts, Dinners
+Hikes, Bike Tours, Horse Tours, Hunting Trips
+Movie Nights, Exhibitions
+Child Care and Babysitting
3. Family Economic Development
+ Cost cutting strategies
+Combined Budgets for essentials
+ Care packages, sharing essentials
+ Clothes swaps
+ Combined Tools Swap (mowers, saws, drills etc)
+Combined Essential Replacements – make it yourself (toilet paper, tissue, clothes, soap)
+Energy Replacement – solar, wind, insulation improvements
Ucadia Campus Development Stage #3 – Forming a Tribe
So the point about Stage #3 and forming a Ucadia family is simply this – unless you can find at least two other people in your community with whom you share common interests and unless you really want to spend time with these people and work together genuinely, then you do not have the basis of any community, much less a Ucadia community.
But it does not end there. Because, once you have a core group of people who have formed such close bonds of friendship they are literally family, then it is a matter of growing out from those bonds to create a tribe – or a close knit community sharing a deep cultural connection.
Again, the lists of action are not exhaustive, but illustrative to show you what can be done:
1. Tribal Spiritual and Legal Development
+ Print out first 10 books of Ucadia Canons as laws
+ Oath of and to Canons/Covenant of One Heaven
+ Elect leadership
+ Common accounts and account records
2. Tribe Social Development
+ Dedicated meeting place, sanctuary
+ Attendance and participation in formal events, matrimony, coming of age, death and funerals, newborn children, etc.
+ Secure Habitat
+ Physical education and fitness, self-defense and non aggression strategies
+ Survival and extreme emergency/disaster survival strategies
3. Tribe Economic Development- shelter
+ Collective Pooling of fiat Roman currencies
+ Skills training and specialized craft development
+ Craft and accessory sales for income
+ Internal cost replacement through skills exchange (barter)
+ Collective home building/renovation weekends/weeks
+ Auctions/Collective Garage Sales
+ Stands, stalls and tables at fairs and local markets
+ Micro loans
+ Pool loans
A Tribe therefore accomplishes – social security, economic security, and essential quality of life. So if there is no family, there can be no tribe; and if there is no tribe there can be no Ucadia community.
Ucadia Campus Development Stage #4 – Forming a Village
Once you have the strength of a dozen or more people sharing strong cultural connections as a tribe around an unbreakable close-knit family of friends, then the 4th stage of forming a Ucadia campus is the formation of a village.
Whereas a family is about ensuring our physical, mental and spiritual survival and a tribe is about raising our standard of living, a village is about the economic well being and prosperity of working together.
Again, here is a summary of the key points, without making it an exhaustive list:
1. Village Spiritual and Legal Development
+ Formal Ucadia policies and procedures
+ Dedicated facilities, office, positions
+ Formal window/legal structure
2. Village Social Development
+ Proximity living arrangements
+ Work-Life Balance
+ Community Homeless Assistance
+ Help for victims of abuse/shelter
+ Cleaning up rubbish/neighborhood
+ Neighborhood watch
+ Formal Education Facilities and System
+ Formal skills development and training systems
+ Job creation
+ Talent and recruitment placement agency
+ Economic security
3. Village Economic Development
+ Supply-Chain Independence
+ Food and energy independence
+ Common market
+ Combined accounts and account management
+ Enterprises with capital and economy of scale
Ucadia Campus Development Stage #5 – Forming a Ucadia Community
Only when you have established a village have you truly achieved the basis for a Ucadia Community. Of course, you can seek to register a Ucadia Campus once you have three members as a strong group of friends like a family. But it is only when you have a village and the demonstration of a level of economic independence does the power of the Ucadia model come into greatest effect.
The point I am making in all of this is no one – absolutely no one – can rightly use the excuse that they are waiting for Ucadia to provide forms, or instruction before they attempt to start building a group of friends like a family or a tribe bound by deep culture or a village empowered by their economic and social connections.
So what is next?
So yes, you need to see the roles and descriptions of the functions of a Ucadia Campus; and yes you need to see the forms and instructions to apply to form a Campus; and yes you need to see the planning documents for campus operation. You need to see all of these things.
So those who have shown faith and trust in Ucadia in helping support through the deposit and donation of debt notes for recognition in Ucadia Moneta have been some of greatest helpers as Founding members in making this happen. Maybe you are one of these people and so I thank you. Maybe you are not. Maybe your ability will come in the forming of trustworthy communities that honor the rule of law. If this is so- then don’t wait for me. Like this blog and audio says tonight. You can start now. There is no excuse –absolutely no excuse to say you cannot start today if you are ready.
So until we speak next week, please be safe be well and thank you and good night.
