The word law, has become somewhat distorted in its meaning. Currently, it means existing legislation, governing human interaction, on all levels, and in all areas. This fact alone, denies the idea that we have any true freedom. And with each new law passed, the axe is laid once more, to the tree of freedom!
The ultimate definition of law however, is that state of reality, (both seen and unseen), that exists as God created it. Our creator has never brought into being, that which we would classify as “imperfect,” although many things in this world, are under continuous development. One example, of an “unseen,” but fully recognized law, is gravity.
Has man been able to improve on this law? To give man the power to alter God’s reality, would be disastrous, for he would surely destroy himself through his ignorance, in short order. And so, man has the ability to alter, what his consciousness is able to comprehend, and nothing more. This ensures the safety, and continuation of humanity. However, occasionally the advanced understanding of a select few, has led to the development of technology, that is very threatening, in the hands of those of lesser understanding, and therein lies the current dilemma of humanity.
And so, we come to the real, or (universal) definition of law, which is the unalterable, physical, and spiritual reality, within, and all around us, as created by God.
The world’s problems then, arise when humanity creates rules, due to ignorance, which are in opposition to God’s natural laws. Under such conditions, life never works as fully, or equally, for humanity as it should, and that is understandable, because the vast majority of laws, are created by a select few, in order to serve the interests of those same few, who are the law makers. Our world is, at this point in time in the earth’s history, saturated with laws, predominantly designed to serve special interest groups, and not the general public.
While it is true, that we are all here to individually, experience physical reality, and to develop our consciousness, through that experience, it is also true, that we must do so in conjunction with the rest of the world, and so all conscious behaviour, is a continuous interplay, between the self, and other souls. It is a balance, played out between God, ourselves, and the rest of God’s creations.
And so the “primitive consciousness,” is interested in only those things which serve the self, then as knowledge, and experience develop, so too does the personal vibration of the individual, rise out of fear, and the upward movement toward love begins. Laws therefore, reflect the conscious development, of the minds who are the law makers. It is also true, that the volume of Laws, also reflect the inability of humanity, to consciously, and voluntarily, take specific actions, designed to promote, and ensure everyone’s highest good.
Therefore, the more primitive a society, in terms of its thinking and beliefs, the more guidance, in the form of laws, are required to establish and maintain harmony within that society, and the inverse is true as well, with regards to a highly developed consciousness.
And so, in all development of consciousness, there comes that time when the soul finally recognizes, that there is no separation between itself, and other souls, or other souls and God, and in that awareness, comes to the conclusion that God, the self, and other souls, are all, one and the same.
From this point forward, does the soul recognize that there is no one to govern, other than the self, and by the time this realization is made, laws become wholly unnecessary. This is the goal all humanity is working toward, and so, our success can be established and recognized, by the continually decreasing number of laws being enacted, and our failure by its opposite!
