On this day Monday, December 4, 2017 Ron Howard is declared to be…a righteous man.
Discussion: I’m posed two different questions at this point 1) Under whose authority am I making such a declaration and 2) Should it not be a proclamation instead of a declaration?
I believe both questions can be answered at the same time.
What is the difference between a proclamation and a declaration?
“As nouns the difference between proclamation and declaration is that proclamation is a statement which is proclaimed; a formal public announcement while declaration is a written or oral indication of a fact, opinion, or belief.” (This is a common definition off the net).
I express this in writing as a declaration, not a proclamation under no one’s authority but as an indication of fact, opinion and belief. I believe that Ron is a righteous man and knowing him as deeply and for as long as I have I hold this to be “self-evident”.
Definition of: self-ev·i·dent
“self-evident truths” Synonyms are: obvious, clear, plain, evident, apparent, manifest, patent, axiomatic, and others.
What is righteousness?
Righteousness (also called rectitude) is “the quality of being morally right or justifiable.”
It can also be considered synonymous with “rightness”. 
It is a concept
that can be found in Dharmic traditions and Abrahamic traditions as a theological concept. For example, from various perspectives in Christianity
, and Islam
it is considered an attribute
that implies that a person’s actions are justified, and can have the connotation that the person has been “judged” or “reckoned” as leading a life that is pleasing to God.
What constitutes a righteous man? Psalm 37:37 says: “Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright, for the end of that man is peace.” These are the heritage of the qualities of righteous men and women. They enjoy peace, but there is no peace for the wicked who who broke God’s law, or the believer pretending to worship God.
http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/righteousness RIGHTEOUSNESS, the fulfillment of all legal and moral obligations. Righteousness is not an abstract notion but rather consists in doing what is just and right in all relationships; “…keep justice and do righteousness at all times” (Ps. 106:3; cf. Isa. 64:4; Jer. 22:3; Ezek. 18:19–27; Ps. 15:2). Righteous action results in social stability and ultimately in peace: And the work of righteousness shall be peace (Isa. 32:17; cf. Hos. 10:12; Avot 2:7).
Leaving the vast world of entertainment aside Ron has worked diligently to keep his finger on the pulse of society and makes the best choices possible in an often inequitable world. Choosing the lesser of two evils is not choosing evil and this is a fine distinction of a fine character.
He has come from and created family that increasingly hold to socially responsible thinking because being righteous means doing things that are right..
From my personal perspective I hold Ron in the highest esteem in the way he has reshaped the world. He is committed to a natural flow of life and using resources responsibly. He expanded people’s consciousness through his studies in India and Tibetan and Hindu culture as well as more classical Western thought and spirituality. He helped bring EST/Lifespring to fruition which brought upon us the concepts of: honesty, excellence, relentlessness, and the belief in the ability that you can do anything and I mean anything you set your mind to. (I would not be here now doing what I do and having done what I’ve done without the Lifespring trainings.)God has appointed me abilities which through Ron’s great direction we were able to eliminate current and potential sources of harm working through God’s natural laws. If they weren’t in line with God’s will I could not do them. And ultimately my highest goal came to fruition (I’m sure there’s stuff left to do though). I have miserated on showing up after the fact at some great injustice like the Holocaust or 911. What good is that? The stories were told about what went on are usually void of truth except for a lot of dead people. Here on the two evenings of the Battle of Jade Helm we saved 200million lives. This is a culmination for me in trying to keep the world safe and sound. We didn’t have to miser ate after the fact about what we should have done because we did it.
I provide the declaration: Ron Howard is a righteous man.
A proclamation can be entered but I don’t feel the need for it since I’m just stating the obvious.
