A MOST MEANINGFUL MEDITATION FOR OUR 2ND YEAR ON NEW EARTH

“We Are Living In The Most Important Time In The History Of The Universe” Dolores Cannon Discusses Our Current Paradigm
February 19, 2014 by Jeff Roberts
Dolores Cannon has over 40 years of regressive hypnotherapy experience from which she’s acquired remarkable information about life in the Universe.
Dolores Cannon’s career has spanned over 4 decades, during which she has worked with thousands of clients in regressive hypnotherapy sessions. With over 17 published books on the subject, Dolores Cannon can easily be considered one of the world’s most sought after professionals in the field. Popular subject matter touched upon in her numerous books include: past lives, extra-terrestrials, life on other planets, energy healing, famous historic figures such as Nostradamus and Jesus, abductions, and the list goes on. Each book has the tendency to “bend the reader’s mind like a pretzel,” Dolores explains.
One of her latest books, titled The Three Waves of Volunteers and The New Earth, is an ensemble of regressive hypnotherapy client sessions which narrates a ‘behind the scenes’ look at Earth’s current paradigm shift. During the sessions, Dolores hypnotizes her clients bringing them into the ‘super-conscious’ brainwave state, one of the deepest trances one can experience. Dolores elaborated on her technique in an interview with The Edge:
“I developed my own technique down through the years. It’s not like any other hypnosis technique out there. We are able to contact what I call the greatest force there is, and it’s a source of all knowledge. I found the way to have it come through every single person that I work with, and I’ve worked with thousands of people.”
The results of her technique are astounding to say the least. Through the years Dolores began to notice a correlation among her client sessions, one that bridges the journey of the souls incarnating on the planet at this time.
“When you see thousands and thousands of clients, as I do as a therapist and a counselor, you begin to see a common thread going through many of the cases. Earlier on, it used to be that everybody would go back to a past life and I’d find some of the answers there, and then I’d explore the source of all knowledge to answer all of their questions and do the healing. Just in the last five years or so, I began to see clients who weren’t all going into a past life on Earth. I began to find they had never been on Earth before and that they had come here directly from God, from the Source, from other planets, other dimensions, where they were light beings. That’s the common thread that I have been finding, and that’s where I came up with the theory of the three waves of volunteers.”
Dolores’s theory proposes that a series of souls are traveling from other planets and dimensions to assist Earth at this time. Many of these souls, which are of a higher vibration than the resident Earth souls, are incarnating on the planet for the first time. She affirms that the souls that have spent many lifetimes reincarnating on Earth are stuck in a karmic cycle, repeating the same patterns of mistakes and lessons which is ultimately leading to the destruction of the planet. Thus, there has been a calling for purer souls to come to Earth to cleanse and raise the planet’s vibration.
But now in body, these people don’t have any memory of why they came. “They come in and an amnesia descends on the person, losing the memory of why they are here. But this group has an energy that they have to project. It is a loving energy that will change the mindset here on Earth. It will change history, just them being here.”
Throughout her clients’ journeys, Dolores discovered that Earth is one of the densest planets in the entire universe. A soul that incarnates here is considered brave because life on Earth is a very challenging experience to come into, especially for souls coming from higher realms and planets of a higher vibration. Nevertheless, all of her clients have the same answer when asked about their reason for coming to Earth, they simply “heard the call.”
The Earth is going through a major transformation, one that Dolores’s clients state has never happened before. For the first time, an entire planet is shifting it’s vibration into a new dimensional frequency. Many souls or groups of souls have experienced a shift like this in the past, (i.e., the Mayans) but never has an entire planet shifted at once. Therefore, Dolores explains, the entire Universe has front row seats to one of the grandest shows ever seen. However, help is needed, because man has polluted the planet with a vibration so dense that it threatens the survival of the planet as a whole. Dolores reveals that if the planet blows itself up, it will reverberate throughout the universe affecting and disturbing all beings. Therefore, the call for help was made, and the souls quickly jumped on the wagon to assist.
In The Three Waves of Volunteers and The New Earth, Dolores elaborates on the three different classes of souls incarnating on Earth:
Interestingly, through her many client sessions Dolores has also written extensively on the lost civilization of Atlantis. She discovered that, like Atlantis, there have been numerous civilizations that have been destroyed in the past.
“Each time when people got to the point when they were using energy in the wrong way and couldn’t control it, they had to be stopped. And every time, everything would be reset on this planet. The civilization would go back to the primitive stages and start all over again. That’s why they don’t want to have it happen this time. They don’t want to start over with the planet and begin life for humanity one more time.
During a hypnotherapy session, a woman went back to Atlantis and was telling me the prime reason for Atlantis being destroyed. I was told that there were scientists at the time of Atlantis. There were others who were fooling around with what they called Dark Matter. I was told that this is the same thing scientists are doing now when they are fooling around with what we call Anti-Matter. They said we have to know this, because the scientists are doing the same thing now.
The Large Hadron Collider experiment in Switzerland is the same thing. They are messing around with Anti-Matter. The scientists who are now fooling around with the Collider experiment don’t have any idea what they are really doing, and it’s very dangerous.
If those experiments had continued at that time in Atlantis, it would have broken down the grid of the planet, causing an implosion of the Earth, and it would have reverberated to the point where it would have broken the grids down of the entire Universe. But they stopped it before it got to that point, but destruction took place.”
When asked about people’s criticism of her work, Dolores says she finds humor in people’s remarks stating she is a ‘great science fiction writer’.
“There’s no way on Earth I could make this stuff up. I have  books out there now, and all of it has come through the cases I have worked on with the average person just walking in off the street. I did not know these people until they came through the door of my office, from every walk of life you can imagine: CEOs of companies, professors of colleges, priests, shamans, and many ordinary people. I have not found anyone who has not had a past life. When I began writing The Convoluted Universe series, I wondered if anybody out there would be able to understand it, because I said that book is for people who want their minds bent like pretzels. People when they read it say, ‘I know this and I don’t know how I know it, but I know it and I know it’s true’.”
In the final segment of her interview with The Edge, Dolores was asked if there were any final thoughts she wanted to leave people with regarding the shift in consciousness.
“We are moving into a new frequency, a new dimension where it is going to be the New Earth, and it’s going to be extremely beautiful. They have described it in the books – the beautiful colors, that everything is total love.
We’re moving away from the negativity of the Old Earth, and it’s going to be a complete turnaround, beyond belief, and we’re all going there now. The New Earth is where it’s at. The Bible in the Book of Revelations talks about the New Heaven and the New Earth. That’s the same thing we’re having now. It’s just that St. John, when he had the vision on the Isle of Pathos, didn’t realize it was going to take another couple of thousand years before it was going to happen.
The most important thing is that we are living in the most important time in the history of the Universe, and it’s very important to be here now. There are thousands of souls who want to be here to experience this – even if they can just be here for a few hours. They say even if they’re born and die right away, they can say, “I was there when this occurred.” This is how important this is to the entire Universe. So, you’re living in a very wonderful time that will never be repeated again.”

We Have Arrived At New Earth ~ Make It Real
A Message from Lord Sananda through Elizabeth Trutwin
January 27, 2014.
Set The Stage For New Earth
How to help Humanity as a Whole. What seems to be the lowest energy has taken over the world. On one hand we have satellites, computers and connectivity. On the other hand we have homelessness, mass starvation and world war. We must show Humanity there is a different way. We show Humanity what seems impossible We Will Make Possible. A better Society can be created. A seed has been sown. Those around the world who would like to make an outstanding contribution and are aspiring toward something beautiful, they feel hopeless. Especially they feel helpless to bring their dream come true because of lack. There is a new networking that will be done to connect and support, inspire and encourage these Earth changers. It is possible to begin forming and executing the Humanitarian Projects now. Organize! These Ones will be more connected with the Universe as the year rolls on. It’s not about money. It’s about Action. Love In Action.
The Reality for The Ground Crew on Earth
We have entered the Satya Yuga. The energies of the Golden Age have been accessible from Earth since January 1, 2013 just following the alignment of Galactic Center with Cosmic Center on December 21, 2012. The Reality is, even if the Event has not yet taken place, you may still draw into your daily activities the miracles of the Golden Age. Enough people are awake and aware to make any endeavor possible now. No matter how big or small your project is, it is time to take action. Put it into play. Implement it! The first question for you is Do You Know Your Mission? Yes. Initially your Mission is to Ascend Earth, that is complete. Next is to heal your imbalances and pursue full time your individual Ascension or Enlightenment. As you complete this important task you are preparing yourself for the next role. Some of you have already arrived. You may have a vision for a company, a Foundation or a business model. How can you use your creativity, talent, money and labor to make Earth better?
How To Activate Your Dream Into The Now
WE WERE CREATED & LOVINGLY PLACED IN AN EARTHLY PARADISE!
Nancy B. Detweiler, M.Ed., M.Div.
Garden of Eden Persian Garden[i]
Recently, I am remembering at a deeper level that all of us were created and lovingly placed in an earthly paradise. This remembrance seems to be a key to adjusting to the New Golden Age of Aquarius.
Mother/Father God created only love … only paradise! Earth humans, using our innate co-creator talent, created all the suffering we presently witness on our planet.
Yesterday (1/25/14), I had an epiphany! The temperature has been below freezing for several days with snow and ice on the ground. This happens in the South, but not very often, so we are not prepared for such events. I’m wearing the same coat I’ve had for years because I seldom need to wear a coat.
Yesterday, a cold wind was blowing. I began to feel chilled inside my home. I checked the thermostat and found it registering 60 degrees with the furnace fan still running—blowing cool air. I tried to turn off the fan, but it would not stop blowing cool air.
I called my heating and cooling company. They were swamped with calls for heater repairs. I was told I would be placed on a list of customers to be visited anytime after 6PM last night. Apparently, repair persons were to work deep into the night.
I live with the awareness that I am surrounded with spirit beings, including my Twin Flame, Uriel (just his name, not the Archangel). I remembered reading in a recent channeled message that 2014 would be a time of what we Earth humans call “miracles” and that they would happen quickly. We are truly entering the New Golden Age!
With this in mind, I prayed to Mother/Father God, and all the spirit beings present with me, to repair my furnace. I closed all the curtains to retain what heat I still had in the house and went upstairs to my office.
While trying to figure out how to keep the cool air from blowing directly on me when sitting at my computer, the air suddenly turned warm!
My heater was once more working properly!
I asked Uriel if he had fixed it … he said “No, that it had simply been stuck.”
I called my heating company and cancelled by request for repair.
By then, it was dawning on me: “Is this how it feels to begin living in paradise on Earth?! … our problems simply begin to melt away!
Although my life has been filled with what we would heretofore call “miracles,” this epiphany awoke in me a deeper awareness of what it is like to live in paradise.
There really is nothing to fear … we really are loved beyond our present comprehension … we really are united with All That Is!
I remember Jesus’ teaching: “Observe the birds of the sky, for they do not sow, neither do they harvest nor gather into barns, and yet your Father in heaven feeds them. Are you not much more important than they?” (Matthew 6:26)
My furnace continues to work correctly … I am warm with the knowledge that Mother/Father God intended only paradise for all of us!
May we begin adjusting to living life in paradise!
AN HOUR WITH AN ANGEL – ARCHANGEL MICHAEL
STEVE BECKOW – HOST LINDA DILLON – CHANNEL
January 28, 2013
Archangel Michael talks about what we—as Lightworkers and Lightholders—can do to help create the New Earth.
Once more he stresses “TAKE ACTION.”
He encourages us to take the 1st step and know that all we need will follow.
IN CONNECTION WITH ARCHANGEL MICHAEL’S ENCOURAGEMENT
TO TAKE THE 1ST STEP
I INCLUDE AN EXAMPLE FROM MY OWN LIFE
“THE MIRACLE OF TAKING THE FIRST STEP”
Nancy B. Detweiler, M.Ed., M.Div.
NOTE BY NANCY: I would like to thank all those who helped me in attending college … there were so many and if you happen to read this account, know that I remember and deeply appreciate your loving assistance. This article was originally posted on my blog December 20, 2010.
Responding to a friend who has just taken the first step into the seeming darkness of Divine Order unfolding, I am reminded of a time in my life when I did the same thing—quit my job because I knew intuitively that it was time. I walked into the darkness, with only my intuition guiding me.
My college career is the story of one “miracle” after the other. My parents had told me they could not afford to send me to college. My response was to write the college (Mars Hill Junior College) and tell them that I had no money, but wanted to attend “on faith.” I was accepted. From then on, my every move was with the intention of attending college. The financial aid office provided what was available to needy students in the form of scholarships, including a work scholarship. I made it through my freshman year and went to my beloved Ridgecrest Baptist Assembly Grounds to work for the summer. I had worked there the summer after high school graduation and former staffers in college had priority for future summers. “Daddy” Weeks, the director, was truly our adoptive “Daddy.”
At the end of the summer, I returned home still needing more money for my sophomore year’s fall tuition. I packed my luggage for school … got a job as a department store salesperson … and worked with the intention of returning to college that September.
Fall semester started … I still did not have the money to return. I notified my college roommate, who offered to work my job and hers until I could get there.
Several days later, while at work, I knew.
It was time to return to school. Not knowing how Divine Order was unfolding behind the scenes, I quit my job that day, telling them that I was returning to school. I took the first step into the seeming darkness and a miracle happened!
When I got home, a check had arrived in the mail. It was from an anonymous member of the church I attended for the amount I needed to pay fall semester’s tuition.
The next day I returned to college! I still had a job, thanks to my roommate! I had missed a week of classes.
What some would call a “struggle” continued throughout my college career—I went to school on faith. I had asked to do so and I was granted that opportunity! The miracles continued to happen! One day, I was called to the Financial Aid Office and told that I would have to drop out if I did not pay 2nd semester’s tuition. I placed the task in God’s hands and returned to class. A day or two later, a check arrived in the mail from my aunt—for the exact amount I needed to pay tuition. I had spoken to no one but God!
I graduated from Mars Hill Junior College debt free. My parents could not afford to attend my graduation, so a Mars Hill friend’s parents came in their place. They gave me a pearl ring for graduation—I still wear this ring 42 years later.
Not having the money to continue college, I worked the summer at Ridgecrest, then went to Raleigh, North Carolina, and worked for a year. Still, my every move was aimed toward returning to college. A former suitemate’s father worked at the North Carolina Baptist Convention. He helped me make contacts there; the result was that Wake Forest College in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, offered me a scholarship, grant, and work scholarship. I returned to college after one year’s absence—still knowing the essential ingredient was maintaining faith that I could do it.
There were times at Wake Forest when I lived on boiled potatoes and tomato soup. At one point, the boy I was dating offered to eat two meals a day, so I could have his meal ticket for one meal. That lasted only a day or two, then the miracles began to happen.
In those days, the girls’ dormitory was secured. All visitors could enter the lobby, but could go no farther without first checking in with the receptionist at the lobby desk, who called the student to come take the guest to her room. If the student was not there, a record was kept of the visitors and the student was notified upon her return.
One day I returned to my dormitory. When I unlocked the door to my room, I was greeted by a surprise! My bed was covered with packages containing all kinds of essentials for college living, including checks signed by individuals I did not know. A note was with the packages, stating they were sorry to have missed me and listing a Sunday School Class at a church in Raleigh. I wrote a thank you note to the Sunday School Class.
Periodically, during the next two years at Wake Forest, I found my bed covered in gifts and checks at the very times I most needed it. Always … the guests came while I was away from the dormitory and the lobby receptionist never had a record of anyone checking in with her. On top of that, we locked our rooms while away from the dormitory. There was always a note: “Sorry we missed you” and signed by the same Sunday School Class in Raleigh. Each time, I sent a thank you note to that Class.
Once I graduated, had a job, and could purchase a car, I drove to Raleigh on a Sunday morning. I wanted to thank the Class in person. I attended the Class and during the announcement period asked to speak. I thanked them for all the help they had extended to me during my years at Wake Forest. They knew nothing of having done so, in fact, denied that the Class had adopted a college student. I had no one to thank!
To this day, I do not know how my dormitory bed got covered with gifts and checks. And no receptionist’s record of visitors!
All I know is: Take the first step into the darkness of Divine Order unfolding and miracles begin to happen!
Update by Sheldan Nidle for the Spiritual Hierarchy and the Galactic Federation
Dratzo! We return! Your world is still caught in an in-between reality-state as Heaven prepares to signal the much-awaited green light. We are setting up special liaison teams to monitor what is shortly to happen. The coming announcements by your new governance will mark the end of a long era of dark control, during which wars, economic upheavals, and other widespread forms of discord characterized the ups and downs of numerous regimes over the course of this old form of governance. It is to be replaced by an interim administration which will prepare the way for a duly elected one and set up new rules and by-laws regarding the general operating standards of the first of your new de jure governments. Contained within the new rules are the new financial and monetary systems based on hard currency, open rules of banking, and an end to large multiservice banking conglomerates. Furthermore, the way will be opened up to get a formal disclosure announced, and the many provisions of NESARA introduced and applied. This will establish a new relationship between individuals and their national governance.
The new banking system will end the long period of debt slavery. In its place will be a system that honors your essential freedom and sovereignty. This requires fail-safe laws designed to protect your sovereignty, end one-sided political parties, and sponsor the rise of an educated and responsible electorate. Each member of this electorate is an individual who needs to learn to express their views based on extensive study of the issues in the world around them. Governments, until now, have both bamboozled the electorate and used carefully slanted rhetoric designed to camouflage the activities they were actually engaged in. In effect, truth was to be kept from the public by any means possible. Now, you are to witness an about-face in administrative operating procedures. Your new governance is to be built upon trust, and upon the premise that elected officials are kept under careful scrutiny on the part of the public. Your most powerful tool will be the intrinsic transparency built into the new rules, and this demands your involvement as both watchdog and advisor. It is a wholly new relationship in responsibility, one which marks the start of your exciting jaunt to galactic society.
One of the more vital responsibilities of this new governance is disclosure. This single act opens up the lines of communication to Agartha, your Ascended Masters, and of course us. With this announcement your world opens up! And those who have long watched over you can now openly come forward. As you can imagine, we eagerly look forward to this special moment. At long last we can explain to you what first contact is all about, and introduce our blessed cohorts on this journey to full consciousness. None of you has any notion of your true inner potential. Indeed, each of you is burdened by inhibiting beliefs ingrained in you since childhood onwards. Our mentors look forward to helping you move beyond these limited conceptions of reality and learn who you really are. Once these basics are sorted out, you are to broaden your learning to include the truth about your recent history, and here you may find things that anger you. However, it is important to remember that you are never alone, and that measures are to be taken to correct the situations and events that are the cause of your distress.
The coming time is one of prosperity, joy, and harmonious cooperation. Peace will replace war, and general disarmament will end the worry over mass violence. As your consciousness grows, you will experience a need for true community and to re-establish honorable interaction between people and government. This requires an exchange based on the perceived integrity of each party. Your world’s currently accepted exercise of power needs to be universally upgraded. Division will be replaced by union; contention by cooperation; and prejudice by acceptance. Such ideals have been so often championed in the past, and now they are to be realized and practiced by all. One of our tasks is to help this along with the introduction of technologies that can take your communications systems to the next, more secure level. As you open up your awareness and begin to feel more secure in your life, you will be inclined to explore new ways of thinking and being which are more aligned with the new levels of consciousness flooding your societies.
Namaste! We are your Ascended Masters! Right now we are watching our associates waiting eagerly for Heaven to sound the sacred horn and begin the new era for humanity. The dark, despite its myriad schemes to derail things, has been unable to prevent the Earth’s sacred societies from completing their assigned tasks. New governance, likewise, is in place, ready to take over when these hallowed notes are sounded. We bless Heaven for moving everyone to the point where they are raising their awareness of how close the new epoch truly is. We are ready to hear the many different announcements that are to set our sacred undertaking in motion. Our part in this blessed mission is to guide you to those divine truths which were supposedly ‘lost’ over the millennia. Those teachings are to be the harbingers of others which will illumine your path to full consciousness.
The new governance is to proclaim your liberation from the many forms of illegal slavery imposed on you by the minions of the dark cabal. Enslavement and disempowerment of the populace was a major component of debt economics, which created a small, ultra-wealthy class that depended for its existence on the complete acquiescence of you all. These denizens of the dark wielded quite a power, but it is as nothing compared to that of Heaven and its great Light! The present Light manifestation is to transform your reality and forge a new, divine one. Heaven set up a specific time, based on the movements of physicality and the divine precession of this solar system. This sacred point is quite near and very shortly a great moment is to happen! Then this glorious living sphere will witness a grand miracle and Heaven’s sacred Light will dance across her and transform all!
This divine radiance will confer a new epoch upon humanity. You will become reacquainted with the lovely realms of your Agarthan and space families. The great lineages of Heaven are to appear and proclaim their great truths to all. And this will be only the beginning! You will have so much to learn from us and from your space family. Many truths will be taught about your origins and the nature of your sacred service to Heaven. Ponder on these new realities, feel their resonance within you, and allow them to inspire you as you prepare for your return to full consciousness. In effect, you are to re-earn your angelic wings. As physical Angels, you will take up a whole host of new responsibilities, and it will be our task to teach and mentor you in many things which will form the foundation of your divine service. Our duty is to be your loving supervisors as we prepare you for what lies ahead.
Today we gave you another message to help you further your understanding of what is being done to extract you from the dark realms and return you to the Light. The Creator rejoices in what is happening and the sacred decrees of AEON are ready to transform your reality forever! Know, dear Ones, that the countless Supply and never-ending Prosperity of Heaven are indeed Yours! So Be It! Selamat Gajun! Selamat Ja! (Sirian for Be One! and Be in Joy!)

NOTE BY NANCY: Sheldan’s update stresses the fact that Earth humans must become educated, responsible participants in governance as we build a galactic society.
President Obama seemed to be describing the new American society that will eventually evolve into a galactic society. Note how President Obama stressed our responsibilities as CITIZENS.
Transcript: President Obama’s 2013 Inaugural Address
Vice President Biden, Mr. Chief Justice, Members of the United States Congress, distinguished guests, and fellow citizens:
Each time we gather to inaugurate a president, we bear witness to the enduring strength of our Constitution. We affirm the promise of our democracy. We recall that what binds this nation together is not the colors of our skin or the tenets of our faith or the origins of our names. What makes us exceptional – what makes us American – is our allegiance to an idea, articulated in a declaration made more than two centuries ago:
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.”
Today we continue a never-ending journey, to bridge the meaning of those words with the realities of our time. For history tells us that while these truths may be self-evident, they have never been self-executing; that while freedom is a gift from God, it must be secured by His people here on Earth. The patriots of 1776 did not fight to replace the tyranny of a king with the privileges of a few or the rule of a mob. They gave to us a Republic, a government of, and by, and for the people, entrusting each generation to keep safe our founding creed.
For more than two hundred years, we have.
Through blood drawn by lash and blood drawn by sword, we learned that no union founded on the principles of liberty and equality could survive half-slave and half-free. We made ourselves anew, and vowed to move forward together.
Together, we determined that a modern economy requires railroads and highways to speed travel and commerce; schools and colleges to train our workers.
Together, we discovered that a free market only thrives when there are rules to ensure competition and fair play.
Together, we resolved that a great nation must care for the vulnerable, and protect its people from life’s worst hazards and misfortune.
Through it all, we have never relinquished our skepticism of central authority, nor have we succumbed to the fiction that all society’s ills can be cured through government alone. Our celebration of initiative and enterprise; our insistence on hard work and personal responsibility, are constants in our character.
But we have always understood that when times change, so must we; that fidelity to our founding principles requires new responses to new challenges; that preserving our individual freedoms ultimately requires collective action. For the American people can no more meet the demands of today’s world by acting alone than American soldiers could have met the forces of fascism or communism with muskets and militias. No single person can train all the math and science teachers we’ll need to equip our children for the future, or build the roads and networks and research labs that will bring new jobs and businesses to our shores. Now, more than ever, we must do these things together, as one nation, and one people.
This generation of Americans has been tested by crises that steeled our resolve and proved our resilience. A decade of war is now ending. An economic recovery has begun. America’s possibilities are limitless, for we possess all the qualities that this world without boundaries demands: youth and drive; diversity and openness; an endless capacity for risk and a gift for reinvention. My fellow Americans, we are made for this moment, and we will seize it – so long as we seize it together.
For we, the people, understand that our country cannot succeed when a shrinking few do very well and a growing many barely make it. We believe that America’s prosperity must rest upon the broad shoulders of a rising middle class. We know that America thrives when every person can find independence and pride in their work; when the wages of honest labor liberate families from the brink of hardship. We are true to our creed when a little girl born into the bleakest poverty knows that she has the same chance to succeed as anybody else, because she is an American, she is free, and she is equal, not just in the eyes of God but also in our own.
We understand that outworn programs are inadequate to the needs of our time. We must harness new ideas and technology to remake our government, revamp our tax code, reform our schools, and empower our citizens with the skills they need to work harder, learn more, and reach higher. But while the means will change, our purpose endures: a nation that rewards the effort and determination of every single American. That is what this moment requires. That is what will give real meaning to our creed.
We, the people, still believe that every citizen deserves a basic measure of security and dignity. We must make the hard choices to reduce the cost of health care and the size of our deficit. But we reject the belief that America must choose between caring for the generation that built this country and investing in the generation that will build its future. For we remember the lessons of our past, when twilight years were spent in poverty, and parents of a child with a disability had nowhere to turn. We do not believe that in this country, freedom is reserved for the lucky, or happiness for the few. We recognize that no matter how responsibly we live our lives, any one of us, at any time, may face a job loss, or a sudden illness, or a home swept away in a terrible storm. The commitments we make to each other – through Medicare, and Medicaid, and Social Security – these things do not sap our initiative; they strengthen us. They do not make us a nation of takers; they free us to take the risks that make this country great.
We, the people, still believe that our obligations as Americans are not just to ourselves, but to all posterity. We will respond to the threat of climate change, knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations. Some may still deny the overwhelming judgment of science, but none can avoid the devastating impact of raging fires, and crippling drought, and more powerful storms. The path towards sustainable energy sources will be long and sometimes difficult. But America cannot resist this transition; we must lead it. We cannot cede to other nations the technology that will power new jobs and new industries – we must claim its promise. That is how we will maintain our economic vitality and our national treasure – our forests and waterways; our croplands and snowcapped peaks. That is how we will preserve our planet, commanded to our care by God. That’s what will lend meaning to the creed our fathers once declared.
We, the people, still believe that enduring security and lasting peace do not require perpetual war. Our brave men and women in uniform, tempered by the flames of battle, are unmatched in skill and courage. Our citizens, seared by the memory of those we have lost, know too well the price that is paid for liberty. The knowledge of their sacrifice will keep us forever vigilant against those who would do us harm. But we are also heirs to those who won the peace and not just the war, who turned sworn enemies into the surest of friends, and we must carry those lessons into this time as well.
We will defend our people and uphold our values through strength of arms and rule of law. We will show the courage to try and resolve our differences with other nations peacefully – not because we are naïve about the dangers we face, but because engagement can more durably lift suspicion and fear. America will remain the anchor of strong alliances in every corner of the globe; and we will renew those institutions that extend our capacity to manage crisis abroad, for no one has a greater stake in a peaceful world than its most powerful nation. We will support democracy from Asia to Africa; from the Americas to the Middle East, because our interests and our conscience compel us to act on behalf of those who long for freedom. And we must be a source of hope to the poor, the sick, the marginalized, the victims of prejudice – not out of mere charity, but because peace in our time requires the constant advance of those principles that our common creed describes: tolerance and opportunity; human dignity and justice.
We, the people, declare today that the most evident of truths – that all of us are created equal – is the star that guides us still; just as it guided our forebears through Seneca Falls, and Selma, and Stonewall; just as it guided all those men and women, sung and unsung, who left footprints along this great Mall, to hear a preacher say that we cannot walk alone; to hear a King proclaim that our individual freedom is inextricably bound to the freedom of every soul on Earth.
It is now our generation’s task to carry on what those pioneers began. For our journey is not complete until our wives, our mothers, and daughters can earn a living equal to their efforts. Our journey is not complete until our gay brothers and sisters are treated like anyone else under the law – for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well. Our journey is not complete until no citizen is forced to wait for hours to exercise the right to vote. Our journey is not complete until we find a better way to welcome the striving, hopeful immigrants who still see America as a land of opportunity; until bright young students and engineers are enlisted in our workforce rather than expelled from our country. Our journey is not complete until all our children, from the streets of Detroit to the hills of Appalachia to the quiet lanes of Newtown, know that they are cared for, and cherished, and always safe from harm.
That is our generation’s task – to make these words, these rights, these values – of Life, and Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness – real for every American. Being true to our founding documents does not require us to agree on every contour of life; it does not mean we will all define liberty in exactly the same way, or follow the same precise path to happiness. Progress does not compel us to settle centuries-long debates about the role of government for all time – but it does require us to act in our time.
For now decisions are upon us, and we cannot afford delay. We cannot mistake absolutism for principle, or substitute spectacle for politics, or treat name-calling as reasoned debate. We must act, knowing that our work will be imperfect. We must act, knowing that today’s victories will be only partial, and that it will be up to those who stand here in four years, and forty years, and four hundred years hence to advance the timeless spirit once conferred to us in a spare Philadelphia hall.
My fellow Americans, the oath I have sworn before you today, like the one recited by others who serve in this Capitol, was an oath to God and country, not party or faction – and we must faithfully execute that pledge during the duration of our service. But the words I spoke today are not so different from the oath that is taken each time a soldier signs up for duty, or an immigrant realizes her dream. My oath is not so different from the pledge we all make to the flag that waves above and that fills our hearts with pride.
They are the words of citizens, and they represent our greatest hope. You and I, as citizens, have the power to set this country’s course.
You and I, as citizens, have the obligation to shape the debates of our time – not only with the votes we cast, but with the voices we lift in defense of our most ancient values and enduring ideals.
Let each of us now embrace, with solemn duty and awesome joy, what is our lasting birthright. With common effort and common purpose, with passion and dedication, let us answer the call of history, and carry into an uncertain future that precious light of freedom.
Thank you, God Bless you, and may He forever bless these United States of America.
