On Understanding Universal Laws

universal law

There are two types of Universal Law.  These are Physical Law and Spiritual Law.  They bring order and stability to the Universe we live in.  Without them, there would be chaos and certainly no way life anywhere could exist.

The first thing we need to do is define the word Law A Law is something that has been proven to beLaws do not require belief in them to affect our lives.  They are simply what’s so and any argument concerning them ends right there.

Physical Laws are the laws that govern nature, medicine, our planet Earth, our solar system, and the other planets, stars and galaxies of our universe.  Although we may temporarily suspend them in a local area, they are in force and will be no matter what we may believe concerning them.  For instance, an anti-gravity room is able to suspend the law of gravity within its confines for a certain amount of time.  But the law of gravity itself will continue to be in effect outside that room and around the rest of the world.

A few examples of Physical Laws are:

  • The law concerning the orbit of planets
  • The law of gravity
  • The law of force.  For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction
  • The law of perpetual motion

Again, these laws do not require belief in order to work.  For hundreds of years, men dictated that the Earth was the center of the Universe.  This did not make it so.  Gravity kept doing its job for thousands of years before Newton came along and explained it.  There are hundreds of physical laws at work all around us all the time.  We don’t even have to be aware of them.  Certainly many have not even been discovered yet.  Man has only scratched the surface of what he knows about himself and the Universe he lives in.

Spiritual Laws are the laws that govern our life and death.  They are not necessarily religious laws but you can find them in the holy books of many different religions.  The thing that makes them unlike religious laws is that, like Physical Laws, they do not require belief in them to affect our lives and many people don’t even know they exist. But when you come to understand them and apply them, life works easier.

A few examples of Spiritual Laws are:

  • The law of reciprocity.  What you give out is what you get back.
  • The law of free will.  You are where you are because that’s where you choose to be.
  • The law of time and place.  Luck, good or bad, befalls us all.
  • The law of inheritance.  Genes come from mommy and daddy, some bad, some good.

Just as more than one Physical Law might apply to us at one time (being carried off by the force of a tornado then falling to the ground) so might more than one Spiritual Law affect you at the same time.  For instance, your son is walking down the street, he crosses the road, gets hit by a car and dies.

Let’s look at the Laws involved.  First, his free will brought him to that spot.  Second, it was bad luck that a car was coming, causing his death.

If you ask most religious leaders why your son died, they will tell you that it must have been God’s will.  Not so.  God’s will had nothing to do with it.  The boy was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.  In the Bible, for instance, Ecclesiastes 9:11-12 states the following:

11 I have seen something else under the sun:
The race is not to the swift
or the battle to the strong,
nor does food come to the wise
or wealth to the brilliant
or favor to the learned;
but time and chance happen to them all.

12 Moreover, no man knows when his hour will come:
As fish are caught in a cruel net,
or birds are taken in a snare,
so men are trapped by evil times
that fall unexpectedly upon them.

The most difficult Spiritual Law for humans to grasp is the Law of free will.  It could also be called the Law of choice.  You are where you are because that’s exactly where you choose to be.  This Law underscores the responsibility that every human must admit to concerning their place on this earth.  It is the hardest law to take ownership of because it causes each of us to look into our heart and admit responsibility for the choices/actions that cause us to be the person we are.  Out the window go all the common excuses:

  • I grew up in a bad neighborhood.
  • My mother / father/ brother / sister / wife  / husband / child never loved me.
  • My parents spoiled me.
  • God / The Devil made me do it.
  • I was conned.
  • I didn’t have the time / money.

The above and many others like them are all dodges people use to foist off responsibility on something or someone else for the predicaments they find themselves having to deal with in their lives.  I’m sorry, but until you take responsibility for your own life, you are not truly living.  You’re like a pin ball, bouncing from bumper to bumper with no control over your life whatsoever.  Many people on hearing this Law will not admit to it.  Unfortunately for them, the Law doesn’t need their belief to have an effect on their life.  You’re poor?  You choose to be poor.  You’re unloved?  You choose not to be loved, perhaps by not loving others.

Later I shall post topics dealing with other Spiritual Laws.
