Understanding Universal Law – Part 3/3


In parts 1 and 2 I discussed how even though the Universal Laws are over-arching principles of how the Universe works, they also pertain to us because we too exist within the same Universal matrix. (Link to parts 1 and 2 below) I also discussed their history and showed that all major religions and thought systems offer us at least the concepts held within the major and well-known Universal Laws. Here is a recap of the Universal Laws that affect us - excepted from book 1, Why We Are the Way We Are, of my new released series 'Our Journeys to Peace Series, Book 2, Becoming Our Best Self out later this Fall. (info links and cover images below). 1st,the Law of Openness denotes that we have to be in a state of receptivity to be able to access the love, joy, sense of empowerment and other gifts available to us from the Universe. 2nd, the Law of Authenticity indicates that we need to come from an honest place within ourselves. We must understand where our motivations come from. 3rd, the well-known Law of Attraction confirms that we are vibration and maintains the principles that “like attracts like” and “we are the creator of our own realities.” 4th, the Law of Cause and Effect clarifies that we are the cause of our experiences, not at the effect of the world around us. 5th, the Law of Balance suggests that we should strive to live in a way that promotes a sense of equilibrium in our lives and harmony in our beings. To become balanced, we also have to make peace with all parts of ourselves as well as the world around us. And finally, the Law of Expansion comes into play in our lives once the other laws are well integrated into our beings, whereby the exponential function allows us to take a sharp upward turn and expand into all that we can be. This is an except from my new book, Why We Are the Way We Are  (Book 1 of my new ‘Our Journeys to Peace’ Series - see end for Book 2) See Here for About Book. (Available in print and e-book from Amazon) Universal Law and the Planes of Existence Universal Law and its principles apply to, link, and govern the various planes of existence – the physical, the mental, and the spiritual. Everything in the physical plane is either in a phase of growth, or decay. The mental plane, or consciousness, is either in a state of thinking, planning, or creating – whether through the individual or the collective mind. The spiritual plane embodies the All – the Oneness: it sees the big picture. Our higher Self resides on this spiritual plane. This is why it is always encouraging us to understand the big picture and to embrace attitudes that align with the qualities of Oneness, like love, compassion, fairness, etc. Even though we and our bodies are on the physical plane, aligning with the Universal Laws allows us to access the spiritual plane [...]

Understanding Universal Law Part 2/3


I finished off Part 1 explaining that the Universal Laws and their principles influence our relationship to our self, to others, and to the part of us that still holds the link to our creative source (higher Self, God, Source, Creator, Spirit, Holy Spirit – or whatever we feel comfortable calling that connection). The themes of the Universal Laws have always been know and offered to us throughout history. You can read Part 1 here Universal Law and Our Past History Universal Law and its principles have been passed on to us through numerous holy people, in many ways, and in various forms. Through their gods, teachers, and philosophers the ancients attempted to explain the laws and principles that pertain to creation, the cosmos, and our link to them. They also attempted to explain the subtler aspects of the creative principle – as they relate to us. Based on these principles, texts were written that influenced many of the religions and thought-systems of the day. This post is based on concepts in my recent book, Why We Are the Way We Are See Here for About Book. Available in print and e-book from Amazon. In his investigation regarding human consciousness and religion, Stanislav Grof tells us in The Holotropic Mind: The Three Levels of Human Consciousness and How They Shape Our Lives that this creative principle, or cosmic consciousness, that has been written about in many ancient religious scriptures is known by different names: “Brahman in Hinduism, Dharmkaya in Mahayana Buddhism, the Tao in Taoism, Pneuma in Christian mysticism, Allah in Sufism, and Kether in the Kabbalah.”(1) One of the much-revered spiritual teachers of the ancient Egyptians was Thoth Hermes Trismegistus, who they later declared to be their god Thoth. From his teachings emerged the Hermetic Laws. Later on, the Greeks were so impressed with Thoth and his teachings that they took on the principles of the Hermetic Laws and named him their god Hermes. It is widely believed that Thoth and these laws and principles influenced many other writings and spiritual communities such as the Sumerians, the Buddhists, ancient Judaism, and Christianity. Many of these writings made their way into religious and spiritual texts we still use today. However, we have to make the distinction between the Universal Laws and the religious rules we are to live by, such as the 613 rules of Judaism. Universal Laws (Kingdom Principles, Hermetic Laws, etc.) are esoteric in nature. They are over-arching principles of how the Universe works – just like gravity is a scientific principle on earth. Nonetheless, it is evident that many of the rules to live by in the various religions have some basis in Universal Law. We Are Creative Consciousness In his same book, Grof also tells us that when physicists explored the micro world, they concluded that what “appears to be made up of solid objects” is actually an interweaving “complex web of unified events and relationships.” He says that we can then conclude that “consciousness does not just [...]
