Universal Stewardship is NOT about RELIGION.

Government separate from religion.PNG
Jesus Christ was one of the first ADVOCATES of the Separation of government and religion. He said: "Render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and unto God the things that are God's"

"Let there be freedom of religion, but keep religion separate from government. A country that bows down to the laws of religion will one day be governed by religion."

God created the universe. God exists outside and within the universe. God transcends matter, time, space, and dimensions. God is infinite and beyond positive or negative. We are God's creation. Universal Stewardship is not about religion. It is about humanity living in harmony to achieve peace, happiness and prosperity with accountability. The greatest advise came from Jesus Christ: "Love one another as I have loved you." The other advise is as old as humanity: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you". For the bullies, it goes like this: "Do not do unto others what you would not want others do unto you."


Living to Achieve "Sustainable Stewardship of God's Creation and the Prosperity of Humanity with Accountability"
- - NOT - -
"Dominion over God's Creation and Humanity's Salvation from Damnation"


The principles of Universal Stewardship:

  1. RESPECT: Foster and adhere to the RESPECT for one another. Respect is not to be expected. Respect is to be given. Do not expect to earn the respect from the other person before you respect him/her. Simply give respect. It will come to you abundantly.
    Children may not know what the word respect means. But they know what it feels like to be respected or be disrespected. They may have not have heard the word yet or made any reference to that word in what they feel, but deep inside they already know what it feels like to be respected. It is instinctive to want to be respected. Children can feel when they are disrespected. They can feel when they are respected. Words, tone of voice, and actions are felt by children. These feelings are carried forward to adulthood. Parents or guardians must teach children what the word respect means.
    Respect makes a person care for another, it allows one to be open and be willing to have a good conversation, to allow the understanding of one another, which can ultimately lead to LOVE.
    Respect all the creations in this universe. We are its steward. Utilize all the material things around you but be sustainable, recycle or re-use and never abuse or waste. Always replenish.
    If you carry respect with you at all times, then that greatest advise, "to love one another" can be achieved.
    GIVE RESPECT. DO NOT EXPECT RESPECT. "Respect is to be earned, only if lost once given."
    Do not allow those bullies to cheat, insult, or deprive. Tolerate if you must, until you are able to fight back. Not because you hate or you are hated but because you are defending and protecting what and who you love and respect.
  2. PRUDENCE: The skill, ability, or wisdom to avoid conflict and choose what is right and what is good or beneficial to humanity.
    Be cordial. When you approach, communicate, talk to or listen to an individual you do not like, use good judgment and discipline yourself to use reason vs emotion. Your judgment may dictate that the individual you are conversing or dealing with is totally disagreeable, offensive, vile and revolting yet you need to rise above all that negative emotion and use reason to be gracious, hospitable, warm and friendly. Diplomacy requires prudence. Be attentive and listen more to what others are saying or just simply talking about. Always speak the truth, but avoid excessive deliberations, otherwise folly will be your company. You can't be diplomatic without being prudent. Being prudent however, does not imply that one has to be submissive to the bully or evil.
  3. GRATITUDE: Appreciate what you have and never take others for granted. When you give or when you are being compassionate or generous, do not ever expect reciprocation. God knows your good deeds. Be grateful but never expect others to be grateful towards you. Do not expect gratitude from others. It is an uncomfortable feeling, knowing that your generosity is not being reciprocated with gratitude, while you are always grateful for the generosities that you receive. Smile inwardly. This is when you let positive thinking overcome the negative. Disappointment comes to those who EXPECT reciprocation and gratitude, because vanity always expects a compliment or reward. Vanity thrives on praises, applause, and reciprocation. Never fail to say thank you. Learn how to make people feel good. Be grateful now, rather than feel the sorrow or regret that you never took the opportunity to say "THANK YOU". Apologize for your inconsistencies or failures but do not ever fail to thank the other person for tolerating you or for being patient with you.
    At meal time pray and give thanks 3 times. First to God, second to the person providing the food, third to the people who grew or produced the food. Always be grateful for your life.
    If you want to thank God for your health and prosperity; thank him by helping yourself become better, thank him by helping others and sharing your love, knowledge, abundance and prosperity.
  4. RESPONSIBLE PROSPERITY: As you prosper through life you must exercise prudence and responsible ways to attain your wealth and prosperity. There is no need to deprive others in order for you to succeed. Negotiation is a two way street. Both parties must be satisfied. Always keep in mind principle #1. Rewards seldom come immediately but you must stay focused, focus will determine your reality. You will always hear sayings about what money can’t get for you. Undeniably that is true. That is why you need to practice responsible prosperity with charity and compassion in your demeanor.
    Survival is our basic instinct. To survive we the creatures of God need: Sustenance, Shelter, Energy, Propagation, Security, Exploration, Healthcare, Unity, Education, Pleasure
  5. SHARE:
    • Share your prosperity, share your abundance, share your knowledge, share your acquisitions and most of all share the love that is in your heart. Prosperity is threefold: Material prosperity, Intellectual prosperity, and spiritual prosperity. The acquisition of material and intellectual prosperity does not guarantee you happiness. Reaching for spiritual prosperity touches happiness, it touches love. For humanity to prosper, we must share, we must be involved. Humans are born selfish! Parents and Adults must teach children to share. As you chip away at your "rock of selfishness", sharing becomes easier. Conversations and relationships become less & less difficult.
    Develop what you can but with the attitude of sustainable development for posterity. Harvest the bounty of the world but always let nature return to its living splendor. You are the steward of your body and soul and of this universe. Develop your body, your mind and soul. But never deprive others or this universe in the process of your development. Having the ability to SHARE embedded in our soul: Makes us: generous, kind, helpful, merciful, compassionate, amiable and tender. Be compassionate and try to alleviate the needy, the suffering, the sorrow and misfortune of others. Sharing makes the universe a better place. Learn to share the cheapest and most abundant human positive commodity, the SMILE. A smile is irresistible, compelling, persuasive, contagious, and catching. A simple smile can change the life of an individual.
    Be generous, kind and helpful but never let this be under pressure or coercion from others. Let this come from your heart. Generosity or being helpful must not be a result of an incentive to being rewarded for the "good deed". It must not come from bribery to be reciprocated. Give with and from the goodness of your heart without expecting reciprocation. Giving as a result of guilt without atonement is simply a way "buying" personal satisfaction.
  6. ACCOUNTABILITY: We will be accountable for all our thoughts, words, and deeds. Don't be a bully. Teach the children to give respect. Teach them not to cheat, not to insult and not to deprive. While in this world, there are rules and laws that demand to be followed. Disobedience can lead to severe consequences. Accountability is not simply for our corporeal life. We will also be accountable in the after life. Accountability does not simply apply to the negatives that we have done, it is also for the positive things in our life. Your good thoughts, words and deeds will be rewarded. Anytime you follow, lead or forge the path for the positive, good things will always happen to you. Every time you reach for something you create a permanent path or bridge back you. Through the generations and in many cultures there are sayings of "you reap what you sow", "Karma", "what goes around, comes around". The path we take here in this universe will be the path to our spiritual state. Every moment through your journey in life, you create paths of "to and from". The Positive or Negative may travel those same paths that you have created in your life in either way. These are all about accountability.
  7. ENLIGHTENMENT: Love transcends all. Express your love in thought or feeling, in words, in gestures, in deeds or in your conduct. Share the love. Don't keep it inside. Never be ashamed to hug your loved ones. Enjoy the love of your loved ones. Awaken the love that is inside you. Never allow hate (hostility, animosity, atrocity, abomination or detestation) to drown the love inside you. Enjoy life. Enjoy your surroundings. Enjoy mother earth.
    Do not Cheat. Do not Insult. Love but never deprive, share and be balanced and you will be ENLIGHTENED.

Universal Stewardship has 5 basic rules to follow. Click on link to read the rules.


By: Franklin H. Maletsky

We are the guardians, protectors, custodians, keepers, caretakers, maintainers, defenders, overseers, curators, administrators and stewards of God's blessings and creation

We are the guardians, protectors, custodians, keepers, caretakers, maintainers, defenders, overseers, curators, administrators and stewards of God's blessings and creation.

God reveals himself to us through creation. We are not to have dominion over creation, we have been entrusted to live in harmony with God's creation.

  • We are to have responsible and sustainable stewardship over God's creation.
  • Utilize God's creations to improve yourself, to achieve your goals, and to learn as much as you can from your journey in life. Do not abuse God's creation. Gain from it and share your abundance. Develop what you can but with the attitude of sustainable development for posterity. Harvest the bounty of the world but always let nature return to its living splendor.
  • Always treat God's creation with: RESPECT, PRUDENCE, and GRATITUDE.
  • Do not waste. Use only what is needed. Do not simply discard when you no longer need a usable item, donate it or recycle it. Recycle all waste products and do not simply dump them. Keep our environment clean.

We survive and prosper by utilizing God's creation. As long as we are on this planet, everything that we do is intimately and intrinsically connected as it is all throughout the universe. The air that the Brazilian feels against her face could possibly be that same air that gently touched the face of Jesus Christ in Jerusalem. The rain that the Australian feels rolling down his cheek could very well be originated from the evaporated waters in Mongolia. We are all connected. We all breath the same air and we all drink the same water. Care and sustain mother earth. Do not pollute, corrupt or defile your source of life.

The development of technology allows us to manipulate science for the advancements towards prosperity of humanity but more often than not, at the sacrifice of mother earth. The knowledge of science and technology was meant for the salvation of God's creation and not simply for the prosperity of humanity.

Every child outgrows its nest. Soon humanity will outgrow mother earth. Will mother earth be able to nurse us until our minds will be advanced enough so we can wield its ultimate power of traveling beyond time, space and matter with a the simple power of our thought? Maybe, maybe not. Until then let us not deprive mother earth with the advancements of science and technology. Let us be the stewards of the universe. Let us propagate universal stewardship.

The bible documents that humans shall have dominion or shall rule over the earth. It reads: "Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule (have dominion) over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground." That mentality has led us to the deterioration of our environment. We are not to have dominion or rule over the earth. We are supposed to be the guardians or stewards of mother earth.

The order of things are as follows: God, self, family, country(tribe), religion(ideology). Let us not ever forget that. Universal Stewardship is not about religion or country. It is about God's creation.

We are humans

We are creatures of GOD. We feel! Our feelings are embodied in our thoughts, words, and deeds. We are here on Earth and in this universe to spread LOVE. As a child we seek love, because that is all that we have when we are born. From the very beginning we are magnetized towards love. We want to belong to love. The need to belong is strong. We yearn to connect.

  • We are born with the greatest gift from GOD, that is the gift of Love. Love is non-corporeal. He also gave us another gift, the instinct for survival, the instinct to belong, and the freedom of choice. We use this instinct so we can survive, learn, persevere, prosper, be healthy, be strong, have ambitions and be on a quest. This survival and belonging instinct came with the intrinsic essence of fear. The fear of loss and of being hurt.
  • The need to belong is a catalyst that can't be ignored. This is inherent in every human being. Temper your need to belong or to connect with LOVE. Love does not just apply towards others, it applies to yourself as the individual.
    • This need to belong or the need to be connected with others is a catalyst for the good and for the bad. Use your gift of choice from God wisely.
  • Our instinct to belong, to feel connected, to yearn, to love and to share this love is the essence of our humanity. This is the impetus for our quest, for our journey in life, our journey towards enlightenment.
  • The need to belong is always tempered with the feeling of primal connection.
  • The feeling of deprivation is the first negative feeling a human experiences. When a baby is removed from its mother's womb, its first instinct is to cry (feeling of loss and pain). This cry also brings in the breath of life. We have just experienced our first conundrum.
  • Birth brings forth life and joy. The instinct of every parent is to love and care for the young. The instinct goes beyond love and care. The need to protect the young is undeniable. The need to nurture, protect, and teach is deep.
  • We are UNIQUE. At a given point in time each person in this world is the youngest living person on earth. It becomes your task to learn and improve upon what the older generation have laid out for you. You learn as much as you can, share as much as you can, and love as much as you can because there will be a time when you may be oldest living person on earth. Then you ask yourself; did I enjoy life? Did I share my love and make it known to the people I love? Did I contribute to the sustainability of universal stewardship? Did I contribute to the betterment of Humanity? Accountability sets in.
Evolution.PNG
  • God created the universe and all life forms. The evolution of the occurrences in the universe is perpetual.

Evolution is the gradual development or transformation of something (life-form), from a simple to a more complex form that it was originally meant or created to be. Evolution is a fact.

The argument that all creatures on earth just appeared in one day is argued upon by atheists viciously. Even some theists agree that evolution continues to work its wonders.

The acknowledgement that evolution is a fact does not dismiss the existence of God. God created the universe. God exists outside and within the universe. God transcends matter, time, space, and dimensions. God is infinite and beyond positive or negative. God is infinite. We are God's creation. We are the stewards of the universe.

Religions argue furiously that there is no such thing as evolution. Atheists argue that there is no such thing as God but accept evolution. Creation is an unexplainable fact that embraces evolution.

Man as we know it may be the apex of its evolution or man may still be evolving into what it is meant to be by God.

The Universe

God created the universe. How he did it, is the playground of theorists. What everybody seems to agree on is that there is Time, Matter, Space, force and gravity. Then there are theories of the opposites.

Most scientists seem to agree on the big bang theory and even in the recurring big bang theory. They theorize on the ever expanding and contracting universe and that the cycle of life and intelligence goes off and on.

The universe is an eternal creation of God. Not a multi-verse or contracting or expanding universe. Just one infinitesimal universe. What has been observed by scientists as they see the expanding galaxies is simply the hour-glass effect. What scientist are observing is simply a minuscule portion of the universe that follows the effects of gravity. All these clusters of galaxies as is currently being observed, is simply one "occurrence" which will finally succumb to gravity and will be  sucked into this "black hole", the center of the hour-glass, and as gravity accelerates all these galaxies through this convergence, it then shoots out the opposite side with such force as to create a "big bang" effect. There is no contraction and expansion of the universe (occurrence), gravity simply pulls all of its content and all it's forces on through to the other side. There is no end. It is simply a continuance in this one "occurrence".

Modern science call an occurrence the "universe". There are countless "occurrences" all throughout the universe. These occurrences are not simultaneous. Each of these occurrences are separated by the vastness of space. This vast emptiness holds the universe together with its opposite, which is the spirit domain.

The "universe" that the scientists are talking and theorizing about is simply one of this occurrences within the infinitesimal UNIVERSE that God has created.

Instinctively we seek prosperity, longevity, and enlightenment

Survival is our basic instinct. To survive we the creatures of God need:
✅ Sustenance: the air we breath, food, water, a source of strength, nourishment.
✅ Shelter: A sanctuary. Protection from the elements and from danger.
✅ Energy: resource for the maintenance of warmth, comfort, activities for continued progress and prosperity.
✅ Propagation: Sexual Pleasure and Continuity of humanity.
✅ Security: Method of guarding the community and its assets. Protection from predators, from plunderers, from thieves, from bullies and those who deprive. Security guarantees survival.
✅ Exploration: We are instinctively curious of the unknown. We pursue it. At the end of every quest, we embark on another. For every answer, we tinker with another question.
✅ Healthcare: The weak, the sick, and the elderly must be cared for.
✅ Unity: Man needs to belong. Man has a need for companionship, community, and camaraderie. Man has a need to bond and stay connected, we need relationships. We are happier when we are in a good relationship. We are healthier when we are in a good relationship. Humans deteriorate when we do not communicate, we fall apart when we are not united, we easily get sick when we are not in a prosperous relationship.
✅ Education: The sharing of knowledge is a must for the continuity of prosperity. To acquire and maintain sustenance, shelter, energy, security, healthcare, and unity, the community must share its knowledge through INFORMATION dissemination or education.
✅ Pleasure: The need for enjoyment, amusement, entertainment, self-gratification, fun, happiness and contentment will always be sought for by humans.

Once survival is secure, our minds begin to think about prosperity. Let us go back in time when humans have not yet grasped the idea of farming, animal husbandry, or advanced technology. The day to day activity of man was simply to find sustenance and maintain his shelter. As he was able to find the right dwelling for his shelter, he was able to return to this abode after he has garnered his sustenance for the day. This dwelling is a precious possession and must be protected for his survival. He begins to think of ways and means of protecting his prized possession. The skill set that he has developed for foraging and hunting must now be also directed toward the protection and preservation of his dwelling from predators and competitors who wish to plunder upon him. Man learns fast that it in order to survive he must not only have sustenance and shelter, he must also have security.

The survival instinct, forced man to think of his security. Injuries forced him to think of ways and means to save and cure himself.

As he became more stable, man began to think more of the what if's. The man who had the skills to cure wielded the power of life and death, and with this the notion of the power over death came to be. Man in his greed took advantage of this.

The man who had the highest skill set of security (fighting, attacking, defending) became the leader. The man who had highest skill set of healing the sick became the "healer" and "wise man". Other men look up to these two. The healer attributes the healing of the terminally ill to a power that is beyond his own. He realizes this and thus the enlightenment that there is a power incomprehensible by him or others. The healer begins to rely on this power of the great being that he can't see or feel but heals.

As time goes on, the healer becomes a spiritual leader. For the severely injured he works his healing skills and begs the mercy of the being beyond.

Who is GOD?

God exists. He is beyond the universe, he is everything. He is infinite. God is in and outside of TIME, SPACE, MATTER and DIMENSIONS. Beyond positive or negative.

Did man know immediately that God exists? No! Man needed to experience God. Man needed to experience God's creation to realize that God exists.

Our emotions (positive and negative) not our intelligence made us first realize that there is God. The experiences of joy, happiness, laughter, prosperity, relaxation, bravery, love, compassion, sadness, anger, loss, anxiety, stress, fear, yearning, guilt, deprivation and hate helped us to be aware of someone superior to humans. These experiences made humans realize that there's something or someone out there that is beyond the powers of humans. When an individual accomplishes something that is beyond his personal capacity as he knows it, he then realizes a power from beyond has helped him.

When we see others suffer, we feel compassion. We get this sympathetic pity and concern for the sufferings or misfortunes of others. The instinctive kindness and mercy pours out from our hearts.

Since time immemorial, man accepted God and also denied the existence of God. There are more who accept vs those who reject. The common denominator in most of those who reject God is that they have accepted God before then somehow because of deprivation, selfishness, vanity or confusion, they have concluded that God does not exist.

Even atheist believe in love, yet they can't explain love. Love is not a simple reaction. Love transcends. Atheists believe in this but can't explain it. Yet they conveniently deny God. Every single one of them maintain the DENIAL LOGIC.

Many books are written about the non-existence of God and some of the authors became famous specially in the atheistic realm. These books were written based on the writings of religions. To them religion is the foundation of God. Wrong! God is the foundation of religions. Religions were invented by humans for humans to belong to a group.

The human soul. Life after death, continuity and the connectivity (joining) and clarity

Human soul.PNG

When a loved one dies, we grieve. We dream. We still yearn for his/her presence. We set up a grave stone, a marker or keep trinkets to commemorate the memory of our loved one. In some cultures, there is cremation. Ashes are kept or simply tossed to the winds to spread and join the wonders of the universe.

We visit this site and "talk" to our loved one, instinctively believing that his/her soul is listening to us. Sometimes this presence after death is felt. We then began to get a hint of life after death. A hint that the human body has a soul. When a fellow human dies in an accident and we caused that accident, we feel remorse. We feel guilt. We feel the deprivation that we have caused.

Loved ones want to keep the memory of the ones who passed away for as long as they can. We keep objects or any old belongings to remind us of the presence of our lost loved one. A small community or village feel the same way for the loss of their protector or leader. Even before humans settled down in one location and they were still nomads, they kept mementos and tell stories of their great leader. There is always that attempt to reach out and gather strength from the dead.

Over the years, when the communication or link is strong and faith overshadows everything, the dead loved one communicates with the living. The living then gets these revelation and a sense of CLARITY. This experience of clarity of wondrous connection became embedded in the soul and it must be shared. This was shared and many believed. This was passed on down through the generations.

Recorded history revealed or manifested the "REVERENCE" that humans had for their dead loved ones, ancestors, or past charismatic leaders. Reverence towards dead warriors or heroes who died for others. These heroes or martyrs were revered. The longer the reverence the stronger the connection. The path or connectivity becomes more fluid and the joining becomes easier. Monuments are erected, statues are carved, messages on walls, books are written, and objects made to keep the memory alive. Always maintaining connectivity. Unexplained miracles have occurred which were attributed to the dead. These verified miracles strengthened FAITH. And faith touches the soul.

This connectivity can only be maintained or strengthened by focusing our thoughts. The human spirit exists in the mix of time, space and matter just as our thoughts do. The ancients did not have much of technology to rely on. Their daily lives where much more geared towards the spirit world. Day and night were precise and the rhythm of life had clarity. More time went to the development of the discipline of the mind. The mind that is disciplined, is clear from distractions. The human mind is the engine for our thoughts. The disciplined mind helps focus our thoughts. Two things can help an individual focus: Emotion and Tranquility. Emotion is split by love and hate. Purity of either one creates intensified focus. Tranquility which is the hardest to attain, disciplines the mind to achieve universality. However, love can piggyback tranquility whereas hate stands alone. Love allows the advanced disciplined mind to focus with clarity and to wield its ultimate power of travelling beyond the dimensions of time, space, gravity and matter with the simple power of thought.

The conglomerate of our thoughts is our SOUL. When we die, our soul leaves the dead body and is joined with God in the spirit "world" which binds the universe.

There are many accounted events of humans dying and coming back to life. They have stories to tell about the joining. Some experience only of reaching the spirit world but not that of actually meeting a spirit of a loved one. There are others who actually felt the joining, felt the clarity and actually communicated with the spirit of the dead.

Many religions believe in the communications with the dead. Catholics do not use the word dead for the revered persons, the word saint is used. It has been accounted for that praying to the saints have produced miracles. These miracles are only achieved when there is clarity, when connectivity is made and a joining is established. When the soul of the living touches the soul of the dead the joining is accomplished, then miracles happen. So the dead does not need your help. You need the help from the dead. People claim that they have been "touched" by the holy spirit when the joining is experienced. Touching the spirit world where time, space and matter is inconsequential, it is not the same as meeting, touching or connecting with a particular spirit. You are a step closer, you will feel the peace and tranquility of God. You are getting closer to the intensity of God where the spirits dwell. The spirit of the living must touch the spirit of the saint in order for miracles to happen.

These experiences are glimpses into a way of life that humans are destined for. The destiny of humanity is for the living to be capable of touching the spirit world and with greater discipline and focus also actually touch and connect with the soul of the dead. The positive and the negative or the good and the bad exist in the world of the living as well as in the spirit world. Be careful who you touch. Wallow in the spirit world and soak in God's strength before you venture into touching the spirits of the dead. Remember it is their realm and not yours.

If you love someone try to maintain the connection, strengthen the bond of your love while you are still alive. Take the time to be with the people you care. Time is limited. Once wasted, it can never be regained. Don't make excuses. Take the time to attain and maintain tranquility in your life. Mix it with love then share it. You will then experience clarity.

When your loved one passes away, and after the sorrow, the loss, and the feeling of deprivation is gone, clarity will come. The bond that you have developed and strengthened while your loved one was still alive will help guide your path to the joining and feeling of his/her tranquil presence and love.

The modern technologies that we have developed, steered us away from this "connectivity" with the spirit world and henceforth to the souls (spirits) of those who died. Distraction became the norm. The development of the "connectivity" has been stagnated.

Bear in mind that your thoughts, words, and deeds have accountability. Accountability does not end with death. One of the greatest gift of God continues into our spirit world, and that is the "freedom of choice". Our death does not take us to a "final" destination. Even in the spirit world our journey continues. The good and the bad exists in the spirit world, the path of the good and the bad crosses. The good can become bad and the bad can become good. We can choose. "Heaven" or "Hell" as depicted by religious books are not one way destinations. An "angel" in heaven can fall and a "devil" in hell can rise, depending on choices made. We are the stewards of the universe.

Worship vs Reverence of God

  • Worship by definition: The feeling or expression of adoration for a deity. To honor or idolize with religious rites. To praise (someone) excessively or obsequiously.
    • To worship: How does a person feel when he/she worships?
  • Reverence by definition: The deep respect for someone or something. To hold someone in a very high regard.
    • To revere: How does a person feel when he/she reveres?
  • Prayer is a simple and honest wish or request for help or an expression of thanks or greetings. Pray a little everyday. Say hello to your long lost loved ones.
    • What prompts a person to pray to God?

God did not put us here in this universe to worship him. Worshiping is like adding bribery on top of respect to get an extra bonus. We are not here to pray to Him and ask for help or miracles, or help solve our problems. We exists with all of God's creations, we interact and when we do; good and bad happens, accidents happen, diseases occur, prosperity is generated, and also there are tragedies. We are inadvertently responsible for everything that happens to us.

We are here to learn, prosper and utilize what is made available for us to use. We do these with reverence. We are here to respect and love one another, to share this love, to help each other, to be balanced and to be enlightened. We love, thank and revere God for everything around us. Thank God by helping others and making this universe a better place.

The evolution of sin and humanity's obsession with "SIN""

As the child grows, he wants to learn. He wants to be happy. He wants to play. He yearns companionship and seeks it out. The need to belong is strong. A growing child is not concerned with faults or negatives, he simply wants to enjoy life, have his sustenance, shelter and security. The growing child acquires all this from the parents or guardian.

As the child continues to grow the responsible parent or guardian teaches the child the 5 basic things in life: Love, sharing the love, no cheating, no insulting and no depriving. The parent also teaches the child that there are consequences for the violations of the no nos. The parent teaches discipline and respect. The parent teaches love and sharing.

Parents or guardians always find it difficult to teach a child.The best tool in teaching the child is love. However, when accountability needs to be explained and consequences must be adhered to, the parents use the base instinct of fear of being hurt. The fear of loss and deprivation. Humans have developed many ways to impart discipline. Some use the corporeal consequence (punishment) others choose psychological, and some choose the combination. Nevertheless, it all boils down to the lesson of accountability for our thoughts, words and deeds.

It is in human's nature protect what belong to them. Be it family or material things. We are proud of our prosperity, accomplishments and possessions. Pride is good, it makes humans accomplish great things. As we achieve more, we also recognize that others look up to us more, this gave us a sense of vanity. People admire our accomplishments and then so do we, which gives us pride. But the craving for more leads to vanity. Vanity leads to self-admiration, unwillingness to share, and to the other negatives in life. We begin to deprive others, we begin to cheat others, we begin to insult others. Vanity lead us to envy, to yearning for what we do not have, which then leads to transgression and to the deprivation of others.
The healer or spiritual leader of the tribe branded these undesirable qualities in humanity as sins. The chieftain or leader of the the tribe branded any contradictions to the rules of the tribe as crimes. The spiritual leader demands consequences and accountability and the tribal leader demands the same. The tribal leader is more direct in his application for the violations to his commands. It is simple corporeal punishment, or deprivation of privileges or assets, or the combination thereof. The spiritual leader has to use psychology in the application of punishment or accountability. His approach was using the instinctive feeling of guilt or shame in every human being. The idea of "sin" to identify these negatives in the human psyche was tossed around in the head of the spiritual leader. He contemplated on it and decided to incorporate the idea of sin in his teachings.
As the community developed and man became more sophisticated, these two pillars of society (tribal leader/chief and healer/spiritual leader) were looked up to as protectors.

With the introduction of "sin" the idea of "salvation" and "damnation" went beyond corporeal. It became spiritual. This made the spiritual leader even stronger.

The idea of "SIN" grew from behavioral faults of individuals punishable through guilt, to Sins punishable in the after life. From the sins of individual to the inherent sins of humanity. Inherent sins that humans have before birth. The spiritual leaders preached this(sin) and the fear of punishment in the afterlife made the following of the spiritual leader grow.

Wrong-doings(Contradictions), misdeeds, violations are all labeled as sins. The obsession of spiritual leaders about sins brought forth the beginning of Religions.

When an individual deprives another and in the process hurts this other person, retribution is usually sought after by the person who is hurt. However, retribution can be averted through forgiveness via atonement for the violation(s) committed.

For the village leader, the accountability for violations (crimes) can only be met in the following ways:

  • Immediate warning only for first time violators of simple misdeeds.
  • Incremental degrees of corporeal punishments or simple fines (payment) for violations committed.
  • Banishment from the protection of the village or death.
  • To the village leader a crime unpunished or unaccounted for is a crime itself.

For the spiritual leader it is a little more complicated. He had to work with GUILT and the fear of not belonging, and on the loss of Love. So he wielded his tools, SIN and GUILT to enable him to control his influence over his followers.

Guilt and shame

Guilt or Shame is an emotion. We need emotion. We are humans. Guilt or Shame is associated with fear. The fear of un-acceptance, the fear of not belonging, the fear of depriving someone or being deprived, the fear of cheating or being cheated by the person we love drives this feeling of guilt and shame. The need for accountability is strong in humans. Whenever we realize that we knowingly deprived someone who did not deserve deprivation, we feel that we have done something wrong and somehow yearn to have it corrected and this is "guilt" in action. Through guilt and shame the spiritual leader was able to build his group of followers.

Why do children feel ashamed? Why do they sometimes feel uncomfortable to step up and be recognized? Why are some children more sheepish than others? These behaviors are developed behaviors during the formative years of the child. It is true that there are children who are not as aggressive or as outgoing as others. But this has nothing to do with negative feelings or behaviors that a child has developed. Lack of discipline and education or too much of both can create these negative behavior. A child must grow with love, prudence, respect and gratitude.

Strengthen the bond of the village with Reward

The chief of the village grants rewards to those who are loyal to him. Positions of confidence and status are awarded to those who do good for the village and to those who maintain loyalty to the chief.

The spiritual leader formulated the same technique. He had to come up with the "salvation of the soul" from the damnation of sin. He had to create a place where the damned souls are going to go. This place of damnation became HELL, and the place of eternal reward became HEAVEN.

Advent of Religions

Religion is based on the salvation of the soul from eternal damnation. Religion instills the idea in us, that we are born with the tendency towards evil. The founders of religions branded the survival instinct of humans, that would make a human deprive others for the sake of survival, as an inherent evil. Instead of molding and teaching the young to overcome this instinct to "cheat" and "deprive", by using the principles of universal stewardship, the spiritual leaders simply condemned this as evil.

Did God give us commandments? Did he make a laundry list for humans of what is good and what is bad? NO. God did not do any of those. Men did. God continues to inspire us everyday, God continues to communicate with us via our feelings and enlightened minds. God continues to communicate with us through nature. The spiritual leaders interpreted these feelings and conveniently have written books and commandments in the name of God.

Writing things down as laws coming from men is not as intimidating as writing it down as coming from God. The spiritual leaders knew, that if the author is God, it will carry more weight and influence. Fear and guilt are the simple tools of the spiritual leader to make people believe. Again, preaching "Salvation from Damnation" worked wonders for the spiritual leaders.

Gathering people together to give thanks to God is good. Preaching all the goodness of humanity is good. Teaching humanity to care for mother nature is good. However, this did not get many followers. This did not create the bond to form a Union that the spiritual leader wanted for his group. So the formula was Fear. Fear from eternal damnation. The unexplainable natural disasters became capital goods for the spiritual leader. He capitalized on the CONSEQUENCES of the negatives. The negative brings on damnation. This created fear and fear from losing God became the ticket to the Unity for his organization, which later gave birth to religions.

Everyone feels guilt. When we do something wrong we feel that need for atonement. The founders of religions capitalized on this. Strangely enough Christianity is based on the teachings of Jesus Christ, yet he did not start a religion. Gautama Buddha was not the founder of the religion of Buddhism. Judaism was not founded by Abraham. The bottom line is this: founders of religions took the teachings of the great teachers and used their great teachings to create a religion to unite a group of people to sustain the contradictory force of others who do not believe in the same concepts. Hence, every religion teaches that their way is the only way. This kind of teaching creates conflict and prejudice.

Religion grew on the desperation of humanity instead of its prosperity. Seldom would you read in the books of religions the teachings on how to be prosperous. Rarely is there anything about being pro-active. The focus is not on teaching the children the values of universal stewardship. Rather, the target of religions is on the adult life of humanity and about its salvation from damnation.

The target or main topic of religion is always the after life. However, bear in mind that there is no religion in the spirit world. Religion is only for the living. Created by the living to benefit the living organization.

Is religion bad? No! Religion gives a person something to believe in and something to belong. It is the choice of the individual.

We will be held accountable for the positive or negative effects of our thoughts, words and deeds

  • Follow the golden rule:
    • "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" or in simpler terms "treat others the way you want others to treat you."
      • Don't do unto others that you don't want others to do unto you.
  • Love transcends all. Express your love in thought or feeling, in words, in gestures, in deeds or in your conduct.
  • Share your prosperity, share your abundance, share your knowledge, share your acquisitions and most of all share the love that is in your heart. Prosperity is threefold: Material prosperity, Intellectual prosperity, and spiritual prosperity. The acquisition of material and intellectual prosperity does not guarantee you happiness. Reaching for spiritual prosperity touches happiness, it touches love. For humanity to prosper, we must share, we must be involved. Humans are born selfish! Parents and Adults must teach children to share. As you chip away at your "rock of selfishness", sharing becomes easier. Conversations and relationships become less & less difficult.
  • The instinct for survival and the freedom of choice combined with the inherent need to belong breeds vanity in every human being. We need to discipline our thoughts, words and deeds so we may successfully do these 3:
  1. Do not Cheat
    • One of the hardest thing to do. Almost instinctively we try to cheat when trying to have, attain or crave something that we don't have. When we cheat, we do not only lie to others, we lie to ourselves.
  2. Do not Insult
    • We learn to tease (insult) as children. When teased, children get very angry and they emotionally get hurt. As we grow to be adults we become experts at insulting each other. Battles, wars, and killings are started by simple insults. A person who insults another does not respect the other person. If you respect and individual or anything you will not insult. GIVE RESPECT. DO NOT EXPECT RESPECT.
    • Do not make a mockery of the shortcomings of others.
  3. Do not Deprive
    • To take away, remove, deny, keep away, withhold from the enjoyment or possession. Deprivation of life, education, food, shelter, etc....When an individual is denied of certain privileges, not because he or she has done something wrong but because his/her culture or society simply dictates it, is a form of deprivation.
  • Find atonement when you Cheat, Insult or Deprive. The first step towards atonement is forgiveness. You must find the humility to forgive yourself and others. Do not get stuck in resentment and harbor hatred and vengeance and the idea of getting even. Forgive but do not forget. Learn from your experience so it may not repeat itself. At the end of the day, thank GOD for all your experiences (bad or good), thank God for your passion, thank God that you are human and have emotions.
  • Repentance or atonement is for the offender himself. It is his way of setting himself free. Apology or penance done for the offended only satisfies the need for retribution. However, forgiveness without the need for retribution will set you free. The yearning for getting even vanishes into thin air. You become a better person.
  • Our thoughts, words and deeds always have consequences. Ultimately,We will be held accountable for the positive or negative effects of our thoughts, words and deeds.

Human rights

We are humans. We have the right to live a happy, prosperous and long life. We have the freedom of choice. We can love whosoever we please. Everybody is entitled to this. An individual who deprives the human rights of another, opens the door for the relinquishment of his/her own basic human rights.

  • Freedom of speech: It is the inherent right of every individual to express himself or herself without fear of persecution. Your freedom to say what you want to say must be managed with prudence. Your freedom of speech does not give you the right to insult others. Your speech must never disrespect others.
  • Freedom of choice: Your freedom of choice must always be tempered with reason. Your freedom of choice must never deprive others of what is rightfully theirs. Our freedom to love, to chose who we love, and who to unite with or marry can never be taken away from us. However, its execution may be deprived from us from the people in power who hide behind the shield of greed and bigotry.

We all have to follow the commanding rules of society for peace, tranquility, and equal rights. Human rights must never be confused with human privileges. Human Rights are inherent while privileges are earned.

There are still countries, cultures and societies who continue to adhere to their old values, customs and traditions which were formulated by powerful "MEN". Men who deemed themselves to be superior to women and sometimes superior to the inherent right of the "freedom of speech" and the "the freedom of choice". These men formulated their rules to fit their needs and condemned those who didn't fit the mold.

Every community, society or government has its set rules and guidelines meant to serve and protect the people. These rules and guidelines are man-made and as the community, society or government evolves, changes must be made to conform or strengthen the rules and guidelines. These changes must be accomplished peacefully and in a reasonable manner.

The five basic rules of Universal stewardship must always be adhered to.

Religions of the world are supposed to champion, advocate and promote "Human Rights". About 80% of the population of the world are followers of some sort of religion. From childhood, 80% of the population of the world are taught by their religion subliminally that men are better than women, that women are inferior to men. Religions make rules specifically for women and men are exempt from these rules. Just one example: Head coverings: Women are made to wear head coverings. Some religions even go to the extreme of punishing women for not wearing head coverings in public. Children grow up brainwashed into believing this "man-made" rules. The core issue of women's rights starts with religion. These are the same men and women who have been taught since childhood that men have more privileges. These same women grow up to be receptive to men's aggressiveness. So when these women challenge these established concepts, they are confronted with a solid brick wall. This 80% of the population must be RE-EDUCATED with the principles of universal stewardship.

Every human being has the right to these:
✅ Sustenance: the air we breath, food, water, a source of strength, nourishment.
✅ Shelter: A sanctuary. Protection from the elements and from danger.
✅ Energy: resource for the maintenance of warmth, comfort, activities for continued progress and prosperity.
✅ Propagation: Sexual Pleasure and Continuity of humanity.
✅ Security: Method of guarding the community and its assets. Protection from predators, from plunderers, from thieves, from bullies and those who deprive. Security guarantees survival.
✅ Exploration: We are instinctively curious of the unknown. We pursue it. At the end of every quest, we embark on another. For every answer, we tinker with another question.
✅ Healthcare: The weak, the sick, and the elderly must be cared for.
✅ Unity: Man needs to belong. Man has a need for companionship, community, and camaraderie. Man has a need to bond and stay connected, we need relationships. We are happier when we are in a good relationship. We are healthier when we are in a good relationship. Humans deteriorate when we do not communicate, we fall apart when we are not united, we easily get sick when we are not in a prosperous relationship.
✅ Education: The sharing of knowledge is a must for the continuity of prosperity. To acquire and maintain sustenance, shelter, energy, security, healthcare, and unity, the community must share its knowledge through INFORMATION dissemination or education.
✅ Pleasure: The need for enjoyment, amusement, entertainment, self-gratification, fun, happiness and contentment will always be sought for by humans. Nobody has the right to deprive another human being from these basic needs.

Pride Vs Vanity

We are proud of our prosperity, accomplishments, possessions and our loved ones. Pride is good, it makes humans accomplish great things. As we achieve more, we also recognize that others look up to us more, this makes us feel good. People admire our accomplishments and then so do we, which gives us pride. But the craving for more leads to vanity or conceit. Vanity leads to self-admiration, unwillingness to share, and to the other negatives in life. We begin to deprive others, we begin to cheat others, we begin to insult others. Vanity lead us to envy, to yearning for what we do not have, which then leads to transgression and to the deprivation of others.

Pride is a feel good attitude. It make one feel alive. Be proud of your accomplishments. Be proud of your family, your children, your parents and your spouse. Be proud of your country. Pride nurtures unity. However, never mistake VANITY for pride.

Vanity is empty. Vanity will always remain as the favorite "sin" of the devil. It is easy to fall for Vanity. It is more difficult to be humble. Humility is acceptance. Humility is "quiet pride", it is between the individual and God. Once humility takes on a "voice" it leans towards vanity.

My Philosophy in Life:

  • As humans, it is our nature to be on a quest.
    • Our origin is our past and we are heading for the future with multitudes of stopovers.
    • There is no destination, just stopovers in our journey to discover ourselves.
    • It is the journey that makes us who we are.
    • The more emotion we pour into our journey the more we improve.
      • Without emotion, we are nothing.
      • Positive or Negative, we have to give it our all.
      • The "Positive" or the "Negative" are simply the tools of our journey.
    • We have the freedom of choice and the power to reason.
      • Exercise this power and you will transform. The choices you make can either make you and others happy or sad. Anything and everything that you want or could possibly want has already been provided and presented to you or laid out for you by God. You have to make your move to help yourself.
    • Explore your surroundings.
      • Do your best to be aware of your surroundings. Everything around you is to be learned from. You can even learn from distractions. However, to achieve your goals, you must stay focused on the activity of your choice at any particular moment.
    • Experience the journey.
      • Remember your experiences. This is easier said than done. At the end of each day, thank God for all your experiences by helping others. Yes be they positive or negative, thank God that you are alive to experience them by making yourself a better person. Never ever blame God for the negatives in your life. You must learn from all the experiences in your journey. Learn to forgive yourself and others. Forgiveness is a great equalizer and it helps balance your life. Don't get wrapped up in the in the negatives. Learn from them and move on to be a better person the next day.
    • Try to be happy. Smile and dance more often. Reminisce. Discover yourself.
      • The happiness switch is automatically turned on when you dance. It takes a lot of effort to stay angry when you are dancing.
    • Be balanced, share, and try to Love.
    • You will be held accountable for all your thoughts, words and deeds.
  • Do not Cheat. Do not Insult. Love but never deprive, share and be balanced and you will be ENLIGHTENED.

5 things to do or follow

  • Only 5 things to do or follow:
  1. Love
    • Love transcends all. Express your love in thought or feeling, in words, in gestures, in deeds or in your conduct. The need to belong or to unite is a catalyst that can't be ignored. Temper your need to belong with LOVE. Love does not just apply towards others, it applies to yourself as the individual. Love should never be limited to people within your ideological circle, religion or family. Learn to love everything in this universe.
  2. Share
    • Share your prosperity, share your abundance, share your knowledge, share your acquisitions and most of all share the love that is in your heart. Humans are born selfish! Parents and Adults must teach children to share. As you chip away at your "rock of selfishness", sharing becomes easier. Conversations and relationships become less & less difficult.
    Develop what you can but with the attitude of sustainable development for posterity. Harvest the bounty of the world but always let nature return to its living splendor. You are the steward of your body and soul and of this universe. Develop your body, your mind and soul. But never deprive others or this universe in the process of your development. Having the ability to SHARE embedded in our soul: Makes us: generous, kind, helpful, merciful, compassionate, amiable and tender. Be compassionate and try to alleviate the needy, the suffering, the sorrow and misfortune of others. Sharing makes the universe a better place.
    Be generous, kind and helpful but never let this be under pressure or coercion from others. Let this come from your heart. Generosity or being helpful must not be a result of an incentive to being rewarded for the "good deed". It must not come from bribery to be reciprocated. Give with from the goodness of your heart without expecting reciprocation. Giving as a result of guilt without atonement is simply a way "buying" personal satisfaction.
    If we have LOVE and RESPECT in our hearts and we are willing to SHARE that love and respect, the good will always triumph over evil.
  3. Do not Cheat
    • One of the hardest thing to do. Almost instinctively we try to cheat when trying to have, attain or crave something that we don't have. When we cheat, we do not only lie to others, we lie to ourselves.
  4. Do not Insult
    • We learn to tease (insult) as children. When teased, children get very angry and they emotionally get hurt. As we grow to be adults we become experts at insulting each other. Battles, wars, and killings are started by simple insults. A person who insults another does not respect the other person. If you respect and individual or anything you will not insult. GIVE RESPECT. DO NOT EXPECT RESPECT.
    • Do not make a mockery of the shortcomings of others.
  5. Do not Deprive
    • To take away, remove, deny, keep away, withhold from the enjoyment or possession. Deprivation of life, education, food, shelter, etc....When an individual is denied of certain privileges, not because he or she has done something wrong but because his/her culture or society simply dictates it, is a form of deprivation.

I am old now, yet I can't master these 5 things that I came up with in 1969. I continue to hurt the people I love. But this does not mean that I have given up.

✅ Find atonement when you Cheat, Insult or Deprive. The first step towards atonement is forgiveness. You must find the humility to forgive yourself and others.
✅ Our thoughts, words and deeds always have consequences. Ultimately,We will be held accountable for the positive or negative effects of our thoughts, words and deeds.

Remember these words:

  • Do not Cheat. Do not Insult. Love but never deprive, share and be balanced and you will be ENLIGHTENED.

How to make humanity aware and execute Universal Stewardship

  • Teach the children about Universal Stewardship and let them be part of the Society of Universal Stewardship.
  • Create foundations to save Mother Earth:
    • Saving the rivers, lakes, seas and all bodies of water.
    • Reforesting the mountains, watersheds, and coastlines.
    • Save the reef
    • Save wild life.
    • Sustainable and renewable energy

Religions and ideologies must be kept separate from Government

Universal Stewardship does not advocate any government or any religion. However, we do insist the government must be kept separate form religions or any ideologies. We ask our followers to do their duty to God and their country and follow the principles of universal stewardship and 5 basic rules.

The order of things are as follows: God, self, country(tribe), religion(ideology). Let us not ever forget that. Universal Stewardship is not about religion or country. It is about God's creation.

As mentioned by the founder of Universal Stewardship, Franklin H. Maletsky, "Let there be freedom of religion, but keep religion separate from government. A country that bows down to the laws of religion will one day be governed by religion."

Individual Peace, Family Peace, Community Peace, Country Peace, World Peace and Universal Peace

Our world, mother earth, is always at peace. The universe is always at peace. Humanity and sentient beings create chaos among themselves. Fights among individuals and people will never be avoided. Fights within a country can be avoided with prosperity. Fights among nations and worlds can be avoided through negotiations with diplomacy, prudence and a great security and defense system. Plundering and exploitation is mostly prompted by greed and the need to have material prosperity. Sometimes it is prompted by the need for survival.

The path to peace is through prosperity with security.. An individual who has achieved prosperity is seldom "wanting" or greedy. This is also true with the family, community, country, world and the universe. However, peace must always be protected. Defense or security must always be maintained. There is always a bully around the corner will try to take what you have. We must also protect ourselves from natural disasters. Security guarantees survival.

Live Love Learn Teach Share

Living is not a RACE. You Live, Love, Learn, Teach and Share. There is no such thing as a "head start" to Live, Love, Learn, Teach and Share. Opportunities in life are not found in a linear path. Opportunities are all around us. You can be way behind and still get the best opportunity in life. We are humans. We have the freedom of Choice.

All over the world, there are those who preach that the world is coming to an end because of all its evil deeds. They preach for the preparation towards the salvation from damnation. They point out all the negative things going on around the world. The fact of the matter is, humanity is getting better each day. We are just more aware of what is going on around us.

Take slavery as an example. All over the world slavery was once a common practice. As humanity progressed, slavery was gradually wiped out. Humanity is getting better each day.

Focus on the good, focus on prosperity and most of all focus on sharing your prosperty. Continue to live, love, learn, teach and share and be the stewards of the universe.
