Nature’s Trap

Here is another exercise in reasoning. Logic, wait, …no logic does not work in this world. Go with me here and put your thinking cap on. Have you ever considered the word Nature? What is your nature? Do you love the natural world? Do you revel in nature hikes and other activities in which you spend time in nature? How does it all relate back to your “Journey of Love”? (If you have read my eBook Livin’ Large, you know what I mean by that quote).

Ok, so there are several definitions of the word Nature and while they are different, they are also related. Humans have their own person nature or personality. The natural or non-man made world has its nature and is in fact simply called nature. Nature is full of mineral, plant, and animal life as well as death. See it is the later which gives it away. Death does not exist in heaven. If there is no death in heaven how can we equate the divine with nature?

Lord knows I watched more than my share of nature films growing up and the hardest part was watching the beautiful Cheetah stalk the antelope and eventually end its life. Or watch a wildfire wipe out an entire forest knowing all the plants are unable to run away and even the animals which can run often don’t make it. I love the quote from a heavy metal band call Tool. “Life feeds on Life”… in the song this line is repeated as a chant. It is quite chilling and provocative. It is also very true. Nature has nothing to do with God or the Divine. Remember the first commandment? Thou Shalt Not Kill. What you don’t read in the commandments is, What you do to another you do onto yourself or What you give, you receive.

Once we learn Universal Spiritual Law no untruths will slip by unnoticed. It will be easier to see the Truth or if you prefer, the Divine. I suppose these lessons are hard learned, at least they were for me. What benefit is there in seeing death all around us? I have learned we have a choice, we can see death or we can see life and not just ego temporary life, I mean Real Life. The world around us is dead, not in the usual sense, but in the sense of dreams are not real and thus dead. There is no guilt, shame, or fault in Reality, only in what I call the Ego world or as ACIM calls it, psycho planet. My message here is simple, Choose Real Life, Choose God, not Nature or all the feel good *&^% this world offers up. Sure we all sample the pie so to speak or we would not be here. Forget all that and forgive.

We all have a choice to see beyond this world to the Divine. Making the choice is simple, seeing the results of this choice not so much. It is my experience ego pulls the wool over our eyes constantly so even when we choose to see the divine our minds will not allow the experience. We are successful, yet we just don’t realize we are. This is where practice and faith come in. Have faith you see not the wonder of the ego, but rather of God. Feelings often betray in this regard, so instead trust in your practiced consistent choice for Love. (a reminder here, I equate Divine Love, Peace, and God) When I say, Love is the way… I mean Love is all there is and there ain’t no more! Except illusions and delusions of course.

Human Hypocrisy

There is a growing concern with natural environments and invasive species among scientists and naturalists world wide. The argument goes that if an aggressive species (plant or animal) without predators is introduced into an ecosystem foreign to it that it will take over and force out other native species which have evolved to live in that specific area. However true this may be, the ethical issues which arise in their management become a huge issue for those people responsible for the management of these ecosystems. I say the issue is even bigger than it is presented. This extends to humans and our impact on the world we live in.

Let me share a few examples, If we are going to issue kill orders for all of a certain species in a certain area, bullfrogs in Colorado, lionfish and snakehead fish in Florida, Zebra mussels in the great lakes, etc. the list is extensive! How is this different from racial genocide? Many races of humans are migrating around the globe and forcing out or simply replacing other native races. The USA is the biggest example I can think of, however it occurs everywhere on the planet. Take the U.K for example has shifted majority race several times over its history, going back to before it was the U.K. Is this a bad thing or is this just the nature of things?

I like to see the BIG picture and I can see patterns going all the way back to the Big Bang and beyond. So in the big scheme of things who cares if the house finch in the USA migrated from Europe or Eurasian wild boar are now native in the USA. The list of animals which have become native in new lands in modern history boggles the mind. Often on purpose! Now we need to kill them all because they threaten another species which migrated there before and have become native? A good example here is the Hawaiian Goose which came to the islands as Canadian Geese and evolved into the birds they are today. Over time other animals where brought to the islands as agricultural controls, such as the mongoose intended to control the cats which where brought to control the rats which came with the sailors. Now the mongoose threatens the goose and it must be killed! I know I am abbreviating long stories here and all I wish to do is offer examples of the many ways life evolves and the ethical issues we humans create.

Land management and species control falls to the government of each country on a large scale and on a small scale it falls to the land owner. What I am sharing here is the similarity with immigration and human behavior. Why are we ordered to kill certain species when those giving the order are doing the very thing those certain species are doing? The hypocrisy humbles even the greatest activist. From the perspective of the authority advocating this killing they claim to be completely justified. My question here is are they justified? Spiritual Law states thou shalt not kill. Yet we do it every day on some level. Are their exceptions to Spiritual Law? I say not, yet there are definition distinctions which need to be understood. Killing an animal for food and with gratitude for its service does not violate thou shalt not kill. The other exception as I understand it are soldiers or police who kill to protect the higher good. As far as I am concerned this one is a very fine line which is easily crossed over. Both of these laws are vulnerable to abuse, esp. when it comes to killing for profit. I know we are entering the black hole of linguistics and so I am simply sharing my understanding or misunderstanding of this complex topic. It is important for each of us to discern their own grasp of this principle and act accordingly. In this process guilt becomes a trap not to fall into. By participating in society we become hypocrites! It is a catch 22. My advice is to forgive and forget, both yourself and others whom you see violating Spiritual Law. It is not our place to judge others, for then we have no time to love them! (paraphrasing Mother Teresa) We are each doing our best in each moment working with the knowledge and understanding we have at the time. Be Kind.

The Highest Law

Free Will is the Highest Law in the Land. The Teachings of Ra tell us this though few fully understand the meaning and implications of this.

“The Confederation of Planets in the Service of the Infinite Creator has only one important statement. That statement, my friends, as you know, is ‘All things, all of life, all of the creation is part of one original thought.’ … Let us for a moment consider thought. What is it, my friends, to take thought? What thoughts did you think today? What thoughts were part of the original thought today? In how many of your thoughts did the creation abide? Was love contained? And was service freely given? You are not part of a material universe. You are part of a thought. You are dancing in a ballroom in which there is no material. You are dancing thoughts. You move your body, your mind, and your spirit in somewhat eccentric patterns for you have not completely grasped the concept that you are part of the original thought.” (Law of One, The Teachings of Ra)

The Manifestation of Creation goes like this: Creator, with Infinite Intelligence, and the One Original Thought. 1st Distortion (Spiritual Law or focus) – Free Will. Creator exercises Free Will to coalesce its Infinite Intelligence.

2nd Distortion – Love. Coalescing of Infinite Intelligence created intelligent energy call “Love”.

3rd Distortion – Light. “Love” called Light into being and established energy, mass, time, space, and Logos. Light is the source of physical illusions (aka. Maya).

15.21 Questioner: Well, in yesterday’s material you stated “we offer the Law of One, the solving of paradoxes.” You also mentioned earlier that the first paradox, or the first distortion I meant, was the distortion of free will. Could you tell me if there’s a sequence? Is there a first, second, third, fourth distortion of the Law of One?

Ra: I am Ra. Only up to a very short point. After this point, the many-ness of distortions are equal one to another. The first distortion, free will, finds focus. This is the second distortion known to you as Logos, the Creative Principle or Love. This intelligent energy thus creates a distortion known as Light. From these three distortions come many, many hierarchies of distortions, each having its own paradoxes to be synthesized, no one being more important than another.” (Law of One, The Teachings of Ra)

There is much more to this story, however we are focused on Free Will here. To further explain Distortion think of it as focusing a lens, as it narrows each stage comes into focus. The first distortion is Free Will and with this Love, Light, and Maya come to focus.

The first tendency with Free Will is to think I can do anything I want. This is true, although each choice comes with conditions. We know this all too well, though we had to learn through experience. I think this can be fun, though it can also be scary. Much of what we do is testing our boundaries in a effort to maximize comfort. So while I do have Free Will to choose my actions, thoughts will flow and we must discern which to go with and which to avoid. Imagine thought as a river and you sit on the bank with a fishing pole. You can see and even feel these thoughts as they flow by… kill, hate, love, hug, etc. I am sure you have experienced this flow! We do so constantly. Part of meditation is to close yourself off from this flow of thought and experience the beyond.

Okay, so now you are fishing on the banks of the river Thought… you make a choice and catch a thought to eat healthy food. You then do your research to discover healthy foods, get them, and experience the benefits or costs to this choice. So where are we going here? The point I make is Free Will is a gift that is yours. You can give it away or not. Others can violate your Free Will but only with your permission. (This is done at an unconscious level most of the time.) An example would be pier pressure to eat food which others are eating though it does not conform to your idea of healthy food. Are you using Free Will to violate your own idea (you claimed the thought from the river) or are you allowing others to violate your thought? The outcome is the same if you eat unhealthy food just because you are with friends. Violations can be much more severe, such as imprisonment, physical or mental harm, and death. To Kill another is the greatest violation of Free Will. Perhaps why this is the 1st commandment in the bible. I mention the bible here because wisdom comes from Universal Spiritual Teachings and by this I mean those teachings which stretch across all Spiritual texts. This is one reason why I love The Law of One, it resonates true in almost every aspect. Also because it dives very deep with its teachings. One last point I wish to make here concerning our social conditions right now. The rioting and protesting of these recent months and years serves only to agitate and does nothing to rectify the conditions for which they protest. The answer always lays with Love. There is nothing loving about destroying property or harming other living beings (both a violation of others Free Will). The loving thing to do is to listen and honor others. If you feel your power has been taken away, reclaim it. Do so by giving what you desire away. Say I feel discriminated against for being different in some way (race, age, gender, etc.). The answer is Not to discriminate against others, instead be an example of that which you desire. Embody the principles you treasure! Don’t want to be yelled at? Then don’t yell. We only have control over our own actions and to take offense at someone else’s Free Will is to torture yourself! Live and let Live! Truly understanding Free Will takes time and many lifetimes. Trust you are on the path!

The Seven Universal Laws

It is time to review the “The Seven Universal Laws Explained by Tania Kotsos”.  The reason being is the basics get us through the hard times.  Inquiring minds want to know, so I encourage you to develop one!  Question reality at all times, and at the same time be not afraid to move forward.  There are no mistakes, only different choices.  All roads lead home.  Take your time, it is all relative anyway!

“There are seven Universal Laws or Principles by which everything in the Universe is governed. The Universe exists in perfect harmony by virtue of these Laws. Ancient mystical, esoteric and secret teachings dating back over 5,000 years from Ancient Egypt to Ancient Greece and to the Vedic tradition of Ancient India, all have as their common thread these seven Spiritual Laws of the Universe. Once you understand, apply and align yourself with these Universal Laws, you will experience transformation in every area of your life beyond that which you have ever dared to imagine.”  (Kotsos 2011)

“Of the seven Universal Laws, the first three are immutable, eternal Laws, meaning they are Absolute and can never be changed or transcended. They have always existed and will always exist. The other four laws are transitory, mutable Laws meaning that they can be transcended or at least “better used” to create your ideal reality. This is not to say that you should ignore these four Laws or attempt to defy them for even if you do they will still govern your existence. Your aim is to master each of the seven Universal Laws and only then learn to transcend the mutable ones.

The Law of Mentalism: “The All is Mind – The Universe is Mental”. The first of the Universal Laws tells us that “All is Mind”. That everything we see and experience in our physical world has its origin in the invisible, mental realm. It tells us that there is a single Universal Consciousness – the Universal Mind – from which all things manifest. All energy and matter at all levels is created by and is subordinate to the Omnipresent Universal Mind. Your mind is part of the Universal Mind – the same in kind with the only difference being one of degree. Your reality is a manifestation of your mind. This is true Mind Power.” (Kotsos 2011)

Sooo…, What do you think? (Pun intended, giggles ;- ) Consider this quote by Ernest Holmes, the author of Science of Mind. “There is but one Mind, the Mind of God, and that Mind is my Mind Now.”  It is hard to believe that God could be thinking some of the things I have been thinking, especially in my adolescence; however, I will skip the ego mind vs. the God Mind in this blog because we have covered that before (write to me if you would like to know more).  The power of this Universal Law is that by careful attention and diligent weeding you can change your thoughts to align with your desires.  The Universal Mind can also be shifted in your perception so that you experience your desires, although ultimately all desires are the same; to know God.  Even the desire to wipe God from your Mind results in knowing God!  We are all God – Godding!
