Primary Universal Laws
examines twenty primary Universal laws that when applied,
assists us in maintaining the balance in our lives. This is an extract
from Dick Sutphen's book Lighting the Light Within.
The Universe is perfectly balanced by natural and moral laws with
regulatory vibrations to maintain order, when you work within the laws
you can be assured of an eventual positive outcome. When the laws are
transgressed you can be assured of suffering; the only purpose of this
is to teach you a better way.
1. The Law of
This law supersedes even the fundamental law of
Karma, for harmony is the supreme potential of balance. The purpose of
Karma is to attain harmony. If you through a rock into a pond you disturb
the harmony of the pond, you are the cause, the effect is the splash and
the ripples that flows out and back until harmony is restored. Similarly,
your disharmonious actions flow out into the Universe and back upon you,
lifetime after life time, until eventually your own harmony is restored.
2. The Law of
Reincarnation and Karma.
Until you have resolved your Karma and fulfilled your Dharma,
which are the deeds you must do, you will continue to reincarnate into
sequential lifetime upon the earth. Neither God nor the
Lords of Karma bestow
suffering upon you during these lives,
you and you alone decide what you most
need to learn and in your
earthly sojourns, and for each life experience you
seek out other souls,
often with shared histories, and always with Karmic
matching your needs. Whenever you act with intention you create
Karma. Actions are considered to be thoughts, emotions, words and
deeds, and the motive, desire and intent behind each.
Disharmonious acts must be balanced in
the future in this life
or in a future lifetime,
to have Soul growth.
3. The Law of Wisdom,
wisdom erases Karma.
If you have the wisdom to learn your lessons through love and
wisdom you can mitigate your suffering. Sadly, we seem to learn
the fastest through pain, through directly experiencing the
consequences of our actions. As an example, you greedily take
from others, and instead of learning through wisdom and love that
this is wrong, you have to experience from others someone greedily
taking from you, whether later in this life or in a future lifetime.
In your last life you were married to a Soul who is your
mate today, and whom you cruelly left far another in that previous
lifetime. Before you were born into your current life, you agreed to
be left by your mate, under similar circumstancesthis will allow you
to balance your Karmaand directly experience the pain of abandonment.
If through the wisdom of Master-Life-Awareness it is easier to detach
consciously from the relationship with love, you will ease the pain
of parting while also passing your own test, and thus absolving Karma
and evolving from within.
Assume that you have Astrologically destined a severe
relationship test for May of your 35th year. If you have learned
through past life awareness, as well as present life learning, to be
positive, non-judgmental and without expectations in your relationship
you may only experience an argument with your mate on that fateful day
in May, but if you haven't learned your past lessons, and have intensified
your disharmony during your relationship you might experience a divorce
in may of your 35th year.
4. The Law of Grace.
Karma can be experienced to the letter of the law or in mercy
and grace. In other words if you give love, mercy and grace
to others, you will receive the same in return.
5. The Law of Soul
Everyone on Earth shares the goal of Soul evolution whether
they realize it or not. We have reincarnated because
we desire to evolve spiritually. By rising above all of our fear based
emotions and in so doing learning how to express unconditional love we
raise our vibrational rate, and move closer to a state of harmony. Even
where it appears that we are not evolving we are in reality making
progress. We learn through the pain of our disharmonious acts, which
can be viewed as our mistakes or failures. This is the law of Soul
6. The Law of
Bodhisattva is a Sanskrit term commonly accepted by most
Metaphysical adepts today. It means one who has transcended
the need of Earthly incarnations but who has chosen to return
to the earth to support others in achieving enlightenment.
A Bodhisattva knows he will never really be free until all souls
are free. Most serious students of metaphysics have entered
the Bodhisattva Development Stage of their evolution.
7. The Law of Vibrational
The entire Universe operates on the same principle of vibrational
energy. When Einstein discovered that "matter is energy."
he opened the door to merging science and metaphysics.The
scientists have proved that energy cannot die, it can only transform
(reincarnate), and, by its very nature, energy must go forward or
backwards, it cannot stand still, for to do so is stagnation, resulting
in transformation. You are energy. Your skin, which appears solid, is
actually trillions of swiftly moving molecules orbiting each other at a
specific vibrational rate; a physical life rate you have earned in the
past as a result of how harmoniouslyor disharmoniously you have lived
your past lives and your current life up until this moment in time. When
you are harmonious for a lifetime, you will have attained the highest
vibrational ratethe God level.
8. The Law of Free Will.
The law of free will operates in three ways.
Although many of the major events in your life are Astrologically
predestined, you always have free will to mitigate the impact of the
event, or to transcend it entirely. This will result from how you
live your life up to the situation you have destined for yourself to
experience. If you give grace and mercy to others, are positive, loving,
compassionate, and demonstrate by your action that you have learned past
lessons, you can minimize disharmonious experiences!
As you obtain Master of life awareness and develop conscious detachment,
you will be far less affected by worldly events than in the past. A Master
of Life enjoys all the warmth and joy that life has to offer, but detaches
from the negativity by allowing it to flow through him without affecting him.
You always have free will in how you respond to any situation. If you
respond with positive emotions, compassion and integrity, you have
probably learned your karmic lessons and will not have to experience
a similar situation in the future.
9. The Law of One.
Every Soul, living and discarnate, is connected at the
level of the collective unconscious, deep within the Higher-Self. We are
all part of a great energy gestalt called God, and because we are part
of God, we are God. It is the goal of the gestalt to move the energy
forward, creating more energy. So, in living harmoniously, we each
increase our vibrational rate and intensify the vibration of the entire
gestalt. When we are disharmonious, we decrease the vibration of the
entire gestalt, because we are one, everything you think, say and do,
affects every other Soul.
10. The Law of Manifestation.
Everything manifest begins as a thought, an idea.
Ideas and experiences create beliefs which in turn, create
your reality. If you are unhappy with your current reality, you must
change your beliefs and your behavior. Beliefs can be changed when
you recognize those that are not working for you, and begin programming
what will create success and harmony in your life. The unlimited creative
power of your mind, through dedication, awareness and training, can be
the wisdom to rise above your Karma. Within physical and spiritual laws,
you can manifest any reality you desire to experience. In regard to
changing your behavior, you must decide which disharmonious behavior
you want to eliminate. Then be aware that you don't have to change
how you feel about something to affect it, if you are willing to
change what you are doing.
11. The Law of Conscious
Buddha's earthly teachings are best summarized with one of
his statements, "It is your resistance to what is that causes
your suffering." and by suffering, he meant everything
that doesn't work in your life; relationship problems, loss of loved
ones, loneliness, sickness, accidents, guilt, monetary hardship,
unfulfilled desires, and so on. When you accept what is, you accept
the unalterable realities in your life without resisting them.
Some things are facts. They exist, and no matter how much
you resist them, there is nothing you are going to be able to do
about them. Change what you can change, but have the wisdom
to accept unalterable situations as they are, without wasting
mental or physical energy attempting to change what you cannot
change. Out of acceptance comes involved detachment.
The ability to enjoy all the positive aspects of life, but to allow
the negative to flow through you with out resistance and without
12. The Law of Gratitude.
From the perspective of Karma and the Law of One,
the more you give, the more you will receive. The more you assist
others, the more you will assist yourself. The power of this Law also
works in your day-to-day life.
13. The Law of
When two or more people of similar vibration are gathered
for a shared purpose, their combined energy directed to
the attainment of that purpose is doubled, tripled, quadrupled or
more. This esoteric awareness has been used by covens, esoteric
religions, healing groups, and recently, worldwide meditations for
14. The Law of
That which you resist you draw to you, and you will perpetuate
its influence upon your life. Resistance is fear, so it is something
you need to Karmically resolve. The Law of Resistance
assures that you let go of the fear by encountering it until you are
forced to deal with it by learning conscious detachment.
You may have a strong resistance toward people of the Asian
race; Black race, Jewish race, your mother-in-law. Your resistance is
fear. The quickest way to overcome that which you fear is through direct
experience, thus you will reincarnate as an Asian, Black, Jew, or mother
in-law in a future lifetime. When you attain Master of Life awareness
and stop resisting [your fear] by consciously detaching from the
negativity, the problem will be resolved. Most disharmonious situations
are solved through a change in your viewpoint. By changing your perspective,
you can usually eliminate the effects of a problem, and if you are no
longer affected by a problem, you no longer have a problem, although
nothing about the problem situation may have changed. Another aspect
of the Law of resistance states, that which you resists, you become,
if not in this lifetime, in a future incarnation.
15. The Law of
"Where your attention goes, your energy flows."
You attract what you are and that which you concentrate upon.
If you are negative, you draw in and experience negativity.
If you are loving, you draw in and experience love. You can
attract to you only those qualities you possess.
So, if you want peace and harmony in your life, you must
become peaceful and harmonious.
16. The Law of
This Law says that the traits you respond to in others,
you recognize in yourself, both positive and negative.
It has four primary manifestations:
That which you admire in others, you recognize as existing within
That which you resist and react to strongly in others is sure to be
found within yourself;
That which you resist and react to in others is something which you
are afraid exists within you; and,
That which you resist in yourself, you will dislike in others.
In other words, you have chosen to incarnate upon the manifest plane
to learn to rise above the effect of fear. Those fears will always be
reflected in your reactions to others, Thus your goals are very obvious
once you recognize how to perceive them. As you let go of the fear,
you automatically open to expressing more unconditional love.
17. The Law of
The expression of unconditional love will eventually result in
harmony. Unconditional love is not romantic love. It is the
acceptance of others as they are without judgment or
expectations. It is total acceptance of others without
attempting to change them, except by our own positive
example. The law of unconditional love says, "If you go
out of your way to express unconditional love, you automatically
rise above fear, and, as you transcend your fears,
you automatically open to the expression of unconditional love.
18. The Law of Magnetic
By Astrologically choosing the time and place of your birth,
you determine the nature or the effects you will experience in
your life. On the other side, before we are born, we make
decisions about the lifetime we will be entering into. You chose
your parents, other souls to interact with you, and the Astrological
configurations of your birth which determine your character,
personality, abilities, restrictions, and timing for strengths and
weaknesses. If all of this seems too complicated to be real,
be aware that you are only using five to ten percent of the
capacity of your brain. And the brain-mind researchers say
the human brain has 200,000 times the capacity of the
greatest computer ever built. Such calculations as I've just
described would be no problem for such a computer.
19. The Law of Abundance.
You have within yourself everything required to make your
earthly incarnation a paradise if you choose to accept that
which is your divine birth-right. We live in a Universe of
abundance, although the majority of those populating our
planet appear to view it as a Universe of scarcity.
20. The Law of Divine
If you seek to understand the Law of Divine Order, study the
natural balance of nature, for it works very much the same way.
Everything is as it should be, although mankind (our energy gestalt)
is far from experiencing its potential of total harmony.
There are no accidents. Your energy, translated into thoughts,
words, emotions, and deeds, causes all your experiences.
This assures that you always have the learning opportunities
you require to resolve your Karma, and, as with you, the
collective thoughts, words, emotions, and deeds of mankind
create the environment for us all. If enough souls focus
their energy upon peace, we will have peace. If the
majority of souls are filled with anger, we may all have to
experience war. We are all one, and like the many
sub-personalities within you, the dominant traits of mankind
(the entire gestalt) will emerge to resolve our group Karma.
At this moment,
a born-again Christian evangelist preaches fear
from a pulpit in West Virginia while a yoga instructor directs a loving
group meditation in Oregon. One is directing the energy of the gestalt
into dis-harmony, the other into harmony. Hopefully, at least one can
cancel out the other. If we can't attain harmony, maybe we can balance
the disharmony. Certainly, as New Ager's, we must not give up,
individually or collective. As always, fear is the problem and love
is the answer. Your resistance to what is causes your suffering.
That's it. It's very simple. There are no exemptions.
