FIJI needs to look back to the past in order to best understand the present and determine the country's direction in to the future.
In a written submission to the Constitution Commission, Semesa Karavaki and Ratu Kalokalo Loki proposed that the constitutional and political problems experienced in Fiji need to be well understood and sensitively analysed.
"Only then can decisions be wisely made and be assured of the meaningful participation of the people of Fiji," Mr Karavaki said.
"While it is acknowledged that a constitution must be made by the people and for the people, it should also be acknowledged that we as human beings are not an end to ourselves."
Mr Karavaki said Fiji's existence and destiny had been established by an external moral power.
He said the process now being followed would fall short of the mark if it terminated the chain of authority with the people and omit the importance of God the creator.
He said serious consideration should be made in setting the pathway as a nation in the way of God.
"For this to be achieved all citizens or those who have made Fiji their home are to be comprehensively taught of God's values," Mr Karavaki said.
The duo also recommended new laws to allow other races to be assimilated into the indigenous community on the basis of their acceptance of God's covenant of relationship.
