“Every person has free choice. Free to obey or disobey the Natural Laws. Your choice determines the consequences. Nobody ever did, or ever will, escape the consequences of his choices.”- Alfred A. Montapert
I stumbled upon the topic of Natural Law after listening to You Tube videos by Mark Passio from What on Earth is Happening.
You can watch/listen to them here.
In this post I am also going to touch on the Universal laws such as the law of attraction, the law of karma and the law of forgiveness just to name a few.
Any successful person has applied these Universal laws to get to where they are.
They work for everyone, the Universe does not discriminate.
Universal laws determine every single result you get in life. However, the vast majority of people have never even heard of them. Although these laws were present all the time, it is surprising how few sources thoroughly explain their workings.
If you do not live in harmony with these laws, you often feel stuck and whatever you do seems to produce negative results. You feel as though the whole world is against you and none of your efforts seem to pay off.
On the contrary, when you live in compliance with Universal laws life seems easy and effortless.
Things that used to make you angry, no longer bother you.
Fear is eliminated.
And success is guaranteed.
But first, let’s start off with the idea of natural law.
Natural law, in philosophy is a system of right or justice held to be common to all humans and derived from nature rather than from the rules of society, or positive law.
Natural law is unseen and pertains to Universal spiritual laws which govern the consequences of human behavior.
Natural law and natural rights follow from the nature of man and the world.
We have the right to defend ourselves and our property, because of the kind of animals that we are. True law derives from this right, not from the arbitrary power of the omnipotent state.
Natural law has objective, external existence. It follows from the ESS (evolutionary stable strategy) for the use of force that is natural for humans and similar animals.
The ability to make moral judgments, the capacity to know good and evil, has immediate evolutionary benefits: just as the capacity to perceive three dimensionally tells me when I am standing on the edge of a cliff, so the capacity to know good and evil tells me if my companions are liable to cut my throat.
It evolved in the same way, for the same straightforward and uncomplicated reasons, as our ability to throw rocks accurately.
Natural Laws Defined
In your experience as a student you might have come across concepts such as the Laws of Thermodynamics, Newton’s Laws of Motion, or Kepler’s Laws of Planetary Motion. Did you ever stop to think why these concepts are called laws?
Are natural laws at all like the laws in our society? And how are laws different than theories?
Natural laws are not like laws in our society.
Societal laws define conduct between human beings and are determined through governing bodies. Natural laws, on the other hand, are determined by fundamental forces within nature.
Natural laws arise from the process known as the scientific method.
The scientific method is the systematic study of the natural world through experimentation and observation.
This method provides scientists with a rigorous framework to objectively study the natural world. Using the scientific method, natural laws can be verified through experiments conducted by independent observers.
Many different natural laws have been described over time, but all of them have a common link. In science a law is a concise description of a natural phenomenon. The law can be a simple statement in words well as a mathematical equation.
The 4 Basic Universal Laws of Creation
1 You exist. (I AM)
2 The All is the one, and the One is the all.
3 What you put out is what you get back.
4 The only constant in the universe is change – except for the first 3 laws, which never change.
The Law of Karma
Man receives only that which he gives. The Game of Life is a game of boomerangs. Man’s thoughts, deeds and words, return to him sooner or later, with astounding accuracy.
This is the law of Karma, which is Sanskrit for “Comeback.” “Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”
The more man knows, the more he is responsible for, and a person with a knowledge of Spiritual Law, which he does not practice, suffers greatly, in consequence.
Jesus Christ said, “And ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free.”
So, we see freedom (from all unhappy conditions) comes through knowledge—a knowledge of Spiritual Law.
Obedience precedes authority, and the law obeys man when he obeys the law. The law of electricity must be obeyed before it becomes man’s servant. When handled ignorantly, it becomes man’s deadly foe. So with the laws of Mind!
The Law of Chaos and The Law of Order
The Law of Chaos and the Law of Order are profound and direct in their simplicity.
To put it plainly, when one fights the flow of the universe, chaos is the result and when one chooses to embrace the universal ebb, order results.
As can clearly be seen by observing the natural world, the default state of the universe is order. It is only when intentions of a lower vibration/nature are inserted into the equation (usually, though not always, by humanity) that chaos results.
Humankind still predominantly operates from a belief that it must control all aspects of life, and so we have rampant chaos on this planet as the divine flow is constantly stifled… that, at least, is the illusion, as it is not possible to completely stifle the divine flow.
The divine flow is like a massive river. You can build a dam to temporarily control it, but the river will inevitably overtake the dam unless the flow is let through at a certain minimum volume.
And so we have humanity constantly attempting to stifle this divine flow by trying to control every last aspect of life instead of letting it unfold how it may. However, despite our best efforts, the divine flow continues to permeate existence at a steady pace and guide the development of consciousness.
Yet instead of the process generating untold harmony, because of our attempts to control it, chaos is generated.
Herein lies the lesson from this law: simply let go and accept life on its own terms.
We are taught to believe that letting go will bring chaos into our lives, but the paradox is that attachment and attempts to control are what generate chaos in our lives and simply trusting the universe to bring us exactly what we need brings lasting order and harmony.
As with so many things we are indoctrinated with since birth, the reality is just the opposite.
The Law of Thinking
The law of thinking states that whatever your main state of mind is, it will be reflected in the external world.
If your thinking is mainly positive, it means that your life is quite positive and mainly positive events happen in your life. If you entertain depressing and fearful thoughts, then your external reality is a reflection of that.
If you change your state of mind, you will change your reality.
Your surroundings are the best measurement to show what your usual mood is. If you are an angry person, you will encounter many angry people and your surroundings will be unsatisfactory.
If you are very happy, you will be surrounded by positive friends and family and your life will be full of positive experiences.
Your state of mind/being will determine your experience of external reality.
Sometimes rest, fun and play are the best ways to change your thinking.
The Law of Supply
The law of supply states that for every demand there has to be a supply.
The reason why people don’t get what they want is because they don’t believe they will.
If you don’t agree with the concept that if there is a demand there must be a supply, you will never receive your desires.
How the law of supply works?
When you ask for something, it is always given. But the supply will not simply roll into your life. Most likely the universe will give you an idea which, if acted upon, will bring you the supply.
Jesus said: Ask and it will be given to you.
With this saying he implied a never failing law of supply that works all the time. You only need to want something and if you believe that you will receive it, the supply will come.
Most people don’t even ask for more than they have, even if what they have is not enough for them. And those who do ask don’t expect to get anything. They may vaguely wish for something great and then they will look away from their desires to face the “reality”. Such attitude will never align them with the never ending supply of the universe.
The supply is all around you.
You should understand that you are born in an abundant universe and you have a right to all the abundance that you want to get. Acknowledge the abundant nature and learn to notice abundance manifestations.
If you were taught that there is a lack of everything in this world and that you have to fight to get your share, you will simply miss the abundance manifestations. Your beliefs will block you from perceiving the abundant supply. You will also not believe that you are entitled to more than you currently have.
Expand your awareness to allow the supply
If you currently cannot perceive the abundance that exists in this world (that is in fact all around you), it means that your awareness level is low. To raise your awareness levels, you need to educate yourself about the laws of the universe and take your focus away from the poverty manifestations and place it upon anything that you perceive as good and abundant.
For example, you cannot earn more than you earn now because you are not aware of how to earn more. If you would be aware of how to earn more, you would. So expanding awareness is crucial.
Reading articles such as this one and reading books about abundance and the laws of the universe will expand your awareness.
The Law of Attraction
The law of attraction is the name given to the maxim “like attracts like” which in New Thought philosophy is used to sum up the idea that by focusing on positive or negative thoughts a person brings positive or negative experiences into their life.
This belief is based upon the idea that people and their thoughts are both made from “pure energy”, and the belief that like energy attracts like energy. One example used by Lisa Nichols in the film ‘The Secret’ is as follows: “Every time you look inside your mail expecting to see a bill, guess what?
It’ll be there. Each day you go out dreading the bill, you’re never expecting anything great, you’re thinking about debt, you’re expecting debt. So debt must show up…..it showed up, because the law of attraction is always being obedient to your thoughts.”
Each and every component that makes up your life experience is drawn to you by the powerful Law of Attraction’s response to the thoughts you think and the story you tell about your life.
Your money and financial assets; your body’s state of wellness, clarity, flexibility, size, and shape; your work environment, how you are treated, work satisfaction, and rewards—indeed, the very happiness of your life experience in general—is all happening because of the story that you tell.
Every thought that you think is vibrating at a very personal frequency and by the powerful Law of Attraction (the essence of that which is like unto itself, is drawn), that thought is now attracting another thought that is its Vibrational Match.
And now, those combined thoughts are vibrating at a frequency that is higher than the thought that came before; and they will now, by the Law of Attraction, attract another and another and another, until eventually the thoughts will be powerful enough to attract a “real life” situation or manifestation.
The Law of Receiving
The law of receiving states that for you to be able to receive your desires, you should be open to get them.
Although this might seem obvious, many people do exactly the opposite.
For example, if you want to be in a relationship and you think you are ready for it but all you do is sit at home, it means you are not ready to receive it.
You can only prove that you are ready to receive a relationship by going out and being ready to meet someone.
This way you are saying to the universe ‘Can you see, I am completely ready to receive my desire!’ and the relationship comes into your life.
You should make it as easy as possible for the universe to grant your wishes.
Universe will try to find a way to get you what you want even if you sit at home with your wish. Someone might just knock on your door and that’s the person of your dreams. But that may happen after a while, say, ten years’ time.
So it is better to really open up to all the possibilities of getting your desires manifested. You should truly show to the universe that you are ready: look the best you can, brighten up, dress up and go out to meet your future partner.
The Law of Increase
The law of increase explains that whatever you are grateful for, you are sure to receive more of it.
This is because you are sending your gratitude to the universe, and as a response, it sends back more things you are grateful about.
It is the natural reaction of the universe to manifest more things you are thankful for.
Gratitude is an action you take and the manifestation of more things you are grateful for is the natural reaction. This never changes. It is as certain as the law of gravity.
It is very beneficial to have a gratitude journal. I had mine for a long time, and every day I feel so happy and excited to list all the things I am grateful for. I usually list around 15 things I am grateful for, but you may list less than that, or even more if you like!
When you feel grateful you raise your vibration. This makes you a vibrational match for what you are grateful for. I have noticed that I receive more of what I am thanking for instantly or after a short while. However, I am not sure if it is the same with other people.
This law not only explains the gratitude, but also how the whole universe works. Everything is always expanding, growing and multiplying. Our desires grow; we advance in our education and knowledge. As soon as you get a thought, you are sure to get more and more related thoughts.
If we would not advance and grow we would stagnate and then death would settle. We naturally know this and constantly move forward.
But what if you want something you do not yet have? Then you should thank for things that you have at the moment that you appreciate. For example, if you do not like where you live, at least be grateful that you have a house or a place to sleep. This will bring you better surroundings.
Also, if you visualize well and can convince your mind that you already have your desire, you can also thank for that vision of what you want. However, you should feel as though you already have what you wish. That will quicken the manifestation of your desire.
In the Parable of the Talents, the master was about to leave on a trip and gave each of three servants an amount of money, each according to his ability. (Mt 25:15) After a long time, he returned and had the servants give account for what they had done with the money.
The first two servants in the parable put their money to work and doubled it, and their master was very pleased. But the third one was afraid and hid the money so he could return it all to his master.
At the very least, the master expected him to deposit the money in a bank to earn interest, but considered him wicked and lazy for doing nothing at all and gave his money to the servant with the greatest return.
Two points to consider: (1) An increase is expected and a little is better than none! (2) Those who prove themselves faithful may receive even more return than they were able to produce on their own.
The Law of Compensation
You Get What You Give.
Ralph Waldo Emerson, in his essay, “Compensation,” wrote that each person is compensated in like manner for that which he or she has contributed. The Law of Compensation is another restatement of the Law of Sowing and Reaping.
It says that you will always be compensated for your efforts and for your contribution, whatever it is, however much or however little.
The best way I can define compensation is what you put time and effort into is going to result in you getting something back from the universe.
To improve our lives, we must first focus on and improve ourselves. Improving your character will attract people of similar character.
When we do this, we can expect good to be on its way to us. You’re going to get back whatever effort you put into something. This law will help you when you choose to help yourself. This law is based on three steps.
Bob Proctor states in his manifestation course series, the amount of money or good you receive in life is going to be in direct ratio with these three things:
- The need for what you do.
- Your ability to do it.
- The difficulty there will be in replacing you.
The Law of Non-Resistance
The law of non-resistance teaches that whenever you resist some situation, you are giving more power to it. This way you make the problem increasingly harder to solve.
What you resist always persists. This is because by resisting something you are directing negative energy to that object.
You make it stronger therefore it affects you more negatively. The problem may even appear too big to be solved.
You start feeling disempowered and you lose hope that you can overcome such situation.
This happens because you use your energy to resist the situation, and you have no or little energy left to actually overcome it. By acting this way you disobey the law of non-resistance.
The first sign of resisting any situation is when you start struggling with it.
Struggle always shows that you are going against the flow. You should change the direction whenever you notice that you always struggle with some situation in your life.
The Law of Forgiveness
The law of forgiveness teaches to forgive everyone who caused you pain and suffering. By forgiving you will be able to escape the consequences of hidden resentment and hatred.
Whenever you keep negative feelings inside you (when you do not forgive someone), those feelings get suppressed and produce some kind of illness.
The more suppressed feelings you have, the worst illness will manifest.
Forgiveness is made possible through the heart energy center.
The Law of Sacrifice
The law of sacrifice teaches that for you to get something new you will always have to give something away.
This law applies to absolutely every aspect of your life. It is better to willingly give first to receive what you wish than to lose something you did not expect.
If you want to lose weight than you will have to give up/sacrifice junk foods and perpetual vegging out on the couch.
If you want to be wealthy you will have to sacrifice a lot of your time and energy to do just that.
The law of sacrifice clearly explains why people are stuck in their current conditions although they would love to be healthier, wealthier and more successful.
This happens because they unconsciously know that they would not be willing to sacrifice what they currently have for them to receive something new.
That is why all the anger, depression and blaming in the world is so pointless. It does not help anyone, it just reinforces the fact that most people are not ready to sacrifice what it takes for them to change their lives.
They would rather blame someone for their misfortunes than decide to accept the fact that it will require time and effort to change.
As soon as you accept that you are 100% responsible for everything in your life, you will become free and your willpower will strengthen. You will realize that you are completely responsible for your experiences and that you have the power to change every aspect of your life.
The Law of Obedience
The law of obedience simply states that you can only achieve success if you obey universal laws.
It is a sin to disobey the laws of the universe. You sin not because someone will judge you for that, but because you will suffer from the consequences your disobedience will bring.
There are many kinds of suffering caused by the disobedience of natural laws. It is easy to see what laws you ignored depending on what you suffer from.
The Law of Success
God intended every individual to succeed. It is God’s purpose that everyone should become great.
The laws of God deny us nothing.
You were born to be rich. No one can deny you anything without your compliance.
The powers inherent in you are inexhaustible.
You were made for progress and not for stagnation.
Each person is endowed with a complete set of faculties which if properly developed and scientifically applied will ensure success every time.
Using your mind, your ability to reason, your imagination, your perception (the way you look at life), your memory and your will are the cornerstones for building success.
These are phenomenal mental tools.
We create success from the inside out.
Start within and go from there.
