Obeying The Universal Laws

Rays Of Wisdom - Astrology As A Lifehelp On The Healing Journey - Obeying The Universal LawsEvery human being finally matures into the awakening of their true identity as a child of the Highest who is first and foremost spirit and soul. It then dawns on us that although we do have free will and that freedom of choice is one of humankind’s most precious gifts on the Earth plane, this by no means represents unrestricted freedom, as many would like to think we have. We, the same as everything else in the whole of Creation, are subject to the Universal or God’s laws. The law of Karma is of particular significance here.

Epictetus, the Greek Stoic philosopher, 55-135 AD, came to the conclusion: ‘Although we cannot choose what happens to us, we can choose how to respond.’ And that is the only freedom any one of us has. Whether we are as yet aware of this or not, to help us grow into spiritual maturity the Universal forces are constantly presenting each one of us with the necessity to make a choice of some kind. We do well to bear in mind that even not choosing, in the final analysis represents a choice.

 We, our destiny and our freedom are not unlike a dog, who is taken for a walk on a very long lead. On one end of this lead are we, the dog, and the lead itself is our Karma, which we ourselves are constantly creating, one lifetime after another. Our destiny is at the other end of the lead and rests safely in the hands of God and the Angels. The world of spirit is our true home and no soul is ever forced into another lifetime. But when we have rested sufficiently in that world the urge awakens in us to grow and evolve some more and this can only be done by continuing our earthly education. No soul can return into the oneness with our Creator until it has been completed and as a result our energies have changed sufficiently to be compatible with those of our Source.

The Roman philosopher Cicero, 106-43 BC, struck this warning note: ‘To be free, people must be enbonded to the law.’ Cicero seems to have had the earthly laws in mind, but his words of wisdom are even more true as far as the Universal laws are concerned. Only those can be free who willingly submit themselves to the these laws and make every effort to live by them. The laws are designed to provide a structure and framework in which all life, including ours, is forever securely anchored. Most important of all, the laws ensure that no soul can ever get truly lost or stranded in the vastness of space and Eternity.

Only through learning to obey and living within the Universal laws can we hope to grow into trustworthy and reliable citizens of the Cosmos. And as always, actions speak louder than words. The Angels and Masters are in charge of and responsible for the development of us and our world. Every thought, word and action reveals to them at any given time how far we have got. As far as I am concerned, there is nothing for it but conducting my life strictly in harmony with the Universe’s demands, because from the moment we do and send nothing but good, right and beautiful thoughts, words and actions into our world and beyond, nothing but the same can return to us.

Our fears once served the purpose of protecting us against experiences for which we were unready. When we follow our inner guidance and rest safely in the knowledge that we and our whole world are enjoying the protection of God and the Angels, the time has come for shedding our fears, until the last one of them has gone for good. Although I have by no means reached that point as yet, I am sure that this will eventually be possible. Wherever our evolutionary pathway may take us, onto ever higher and elevated levels of experience, we shall be able to freely and fearlessly walk hand in hand with God and the Angels. They are the only ones who truly know the way of all things and the answers to all our questions.

The only genuine freedom that can be found in earthly life is the spiritual freedom to believe what our hearts and souls are telling us to be true. With the knowledge we are finding the Universe is laying the key to it into the hands of all who prove through their behaviour that they are ready to receive this freedom. All it takes is doing that which is good, right and beautiful and leading a good, honest and upright life. And when we show that at all times we are giving of our best, the Universal laws ensure that only more of the same will in due course find its way back to us. When someone does a nasty turn to a wise one because the last bits of their karmic debts have not yet been paid, they refuse to take vengeance as this would only create more difficult Karma and prolong their times spent in earthly life. Keen to move on to experiencing the higher levels of life, they choose to forgive and walk away.
