Question: What is the role of Poland and the Polish people who are in some ways lagging behind. What is our role and how can we get closer to the Golden Age consciousness?
Answer from the Ascended Master Saint Germain through Kim Michaels. This answer was given at a conference in Holland in 2017.
Well, it is very, very true, my beloved, that when Communism collapsed there was a certain mindset in Western Europe that because Western Europe had remained free and democratic, because you had a higher economic and technological and in some ways cultural development, Western Europe was superior to Eastern Europe. There was also a consciousness in many eastern european nations, not only Poland, that without being spoken or recognized consciously, many of these countries and the people felt that the fact that they were suppressed by the Soviet Union, by Russia, and were part of the Warsaw Pact or part of the Soviet Union, must mean that they were somehow inferior. They were not able to avoid this, they were not able to stand up for themselves and there was even a sense that the western nations were not willing to ensure their freedom after the Second World War, and that meant that they were not valued and that they were let down by the western nations.
There was actually an incredible range of issues that ideally should have been brought out and debated after the collapse of Communism. I can say unequivocally, that Western Europe faced a historic opportunity at the collapse of Communism. I have said before that nations will reach a certain level of development where they will really not go further until they use their affluence or their development, their awareness, to help others. The Western European nations had a historic opportunity to help their brothers from Eastern Europe. They did not choose to take this fully. They did help, but they could have done much, much more. They could have also done much more psychologically, but I realize that given the state of Europe and the collective consciousness, it would have been a very big leap.
It could have been done but it would have been a big leap and it was not done, so rather than lamenting about the past, it is actually necessary that Europe in the future hopefully will go through a more open debate about the different nations and whether some are inferior or some are superior. It is clear that the Polish people have had a sense of inferiority, which partly relates to the history of the Polish people. You have been overrun so many times by outsiders from both the East and West. As we have said before, this is a role that you have chosen to take on and it actually shows that there is a certain maturity as a nation. What needs to be done is that the Polish people take a look at this openly and you come to the conclusion that you are in no way lacking, you are not inferior and you are really, first of all, not inferior in terms of humanity.
Humanity is found everywhere. Mature souls are found in every nation. Good, well-meaning people are found in every nation. I am not here talking about just spiritual people who have a certain level of Christhood. I am not even talking about necessarily the top 10%, but in every nation you see people who have reached a state of being non-aggressive, being what you would call good, peaceful people who have good intentions towards their fellow men.
This is a basic level of humanity that, if it is recognized, can tie people together. Certainly, the Polish people have this in abundance and all the other nations of Eastern Europe—the people have this. Russia, the people have this as well, many of them, not all and certainly not all in every country. But in terms of what you are going through in Poland right now with the new government that is trying to stand up for Poland, well it is a necessary phase and it is the only way you can do it right now. It is not the ultimate approach. It is not necessarily such a mature approach and it is not necessarily going to buy you much respect from Western European nations. But in terms of the impact on the Polish psyche, it is a necessary step.
There is, of course, a higher approach because you are not really overcoming inferiority by pounding your hand on the table and saying: “Now pay attention to us.” You are overcoming your sense of inferiority by looking at yourselves. Again, Polish people are not going to find their true self-worth by changing the behavior of Western European nations towards Poland. You are going to find it by looking into the individual psychology and the national psychology and looking at why you feel you are inferior and coming to the point where you recognize your own humanity and recognize that you have no reason whatsoever to feel inferior to any other nation or any other people.
