The Ten Lemurian Laws



History has shown that self-government affords the best environ­ment for advancement. The greatest civilization, Lemuria, flourished for 52,000 years because an informed citizenry took responsibility for governing themselves through participatory democracy. Their legislative branch was comprised of the people themselves, who made their own laws democratically.


Lemurians took citizenship very seriously. They earned the status of citizenship through a seven-year period of study. Those who served as statesmen of the Executive Branch under­took another seven years of study, along with their spouses. The Judicial Branch of Lemurian government was comprised of direct representatives of the Brotherhoods: However, as stated above, the Legislative Branch was the people themselves, who passed their laws through a process of referendum.


The Ten Lemurian Laws were their guidelines for keeping positive karmic balance within the culture. When there was a question as to how to interpret the ten laws, a referendum was prepared and the people voted. Individuals achieved a balance of give-and-take over time as they experienced being sometimes in the minority and sometimes in the majority. Both required maturity, then as now. Lemurians were well-informed people; each person a politician, moralist and philosopher. Generally they had the wisdom to govern themselves with ten succinctly-written laws as directives because their customs, courtesy and maturity precluded the need for elaborate laws and external authority.


Redeveloping that kind of incentive and ability to fully participate in our own governance is our primary task now. Civilization has finally progressed once more to a relatively high level of both the desire for self-responsibility and of the material freedom afforded by technological progress. The Lemurian Laws and the U.S.A. Constitution’s Bill of Rights are available to us so that we can study and compare them in order to raise our awareness of the privileges and responsibilities of a truly democratic process.


While the Bill of Rights is detailed in its very specific pro­tections against the tyranny of 18th century England’s rule, the Lemurian Laws are simply stated guidelines, outlining Natural Law. It was intended that we learn about Universal Law mainly by experience in an environment conducive to growth. Reading the Lemurian Laws can give a glimpse into the type of Mind which was operating among a more elevated level of justice and love.
