Universal Law

Universal Law

The law of the Universe is simple. This means that the answers are always simple.

And, the ultimate truth is that there is only one truth.

It couldn’t be simpler than that, now could it!?

Come on a retreat with me in the mountains outside Rome in October 2020 to learn more about Universal Law so that you can get a whole lot more out of life and feel a lot more fulfilled. It will be a fun-filled ride! Email your interest before June 2020.

Complexity Is A Lie

Have you ever read the user agreements attached to things like Facebook or Instagram?

No?

Why ever not?

Have you, like me, got a multitude of better things to do than wade through 80+ pages of legalise, all designed to confuse and put us off?

Yes, of course you have… And, that’s what the tech companies are banking on.

It is a nasty game they play… getting us to sign away our rights by obfuscating the reasons why we should be potecting them with every ounce of our being. Their all-pervasive, probing technology has already stripped the Chinese of all of their privacy and we are not far behind. The outcomes are ugly.

But, we are only to happy to click ”I agree” to the most scandelous surrendering of our civil liberties, because there’s no way we are ever going to read all of that ‘nonsense’.

The sad reality is the tech industry and our other professions are all now placing profit before people and it is folly on our part to trust ANY of them… that includes financial, legal and medical…

Can You Understand Your Diagnosis?

Have you ever wondered why doctors and solicitors use a whole different language to the rest of us?

Well, the answer is simple… as all of the true answers are…

They don’t want us to understand what they are saying! They want to seem important, retain exclusivity and make you pay through the nose for something on the grounds it sounds either way too boring to be understood, or, all too important for you, as a mere mortal, to ever comprehend… Either way, the price tag just went up!

All the ‘professions’ have employed this tactic to ensure they can charge a premium.

We are being exploited, but their greed has no end… and that’s dangerous!

Universal Law Is Simple

There’s no highfalutin postulations within Universal Law. Everything is pretty straightforward if you ever care to look.

For example, the law of Cause & Effect…

This simply means if you choose to do something then there will be consequences. One action attracts a corresponding action.

SImples!

The Law Of Judgement

It’s probably wise to follow the Law of Cause & Effect with the Law of Judgement just so that we’re clear on a few principles which are broadly misunderstood. And, the broad misunderstandings are largely due to our penchant for overcomplicating that which is fundamentally very simple at heart!

The Law of Judgement has nothing to do with being right or wrong. The Law of Judgement has nothing to do with punishment.

The Law of Judgement is all about discernment.

This is how it works…

Everything exists! (Except for nothing… everything and nothing are mutually exclusive. So, if everything exists then nothing can’t!)

It is impossible to split everything up into what is good and what is bad and then expect everyone to agree you did it right… No-one will agree with anyone else about what is good and bad because one man’s meat is another man’s poison. Making things right and wrong is a very subjective game… and is actually one we play, either wittingly or unwittingly, to obfuscate the truth…

And what is the simple truth of the Law of Judgement?

Well… it is this…

Everything exists so that we may employ our DISCERNMENT and choose wisely for us.

We will learn from every choice, because every choice elicits an experience (a la the Law of Cause & Effect), but some experiences will be easy and some will be hard, some will delight and some will be painful… this is why discernment is key.

I once chose to do a bungee jump. And, I hated every secon of it. But, instead of having a fit of the screaming abdabs and demanding bugee jumps be outlawed and anyone offering to provide the service of bungee jumps should be punishable by death, I simply decided that bungee jums weren’t for me and went on my way…

Judgement = discenrment! Not blame, criticism and creating a them and us! Discernment isn’t divisive. We are all one!

The One Truth Behind Universal Law

Universal Law will reveal the truth about ourselves to us.

When we work in accord with Universal Law life reveals what it is we need to know. And, what we need to know is who we are.

When we know who we are life choices become easier and easier. We become more discerning.

The hard choices with the ugly outcomes are necessary for some people because they do not love themselves enough to choose kindly outcomes, and others are determined to learn the hard way beleiving life to be cruel and hard.

As Shakespear wrote…

… there is nothing either good or bad, but thinking makes it so…

To believe life is hard and cruel will make life appear to be these things until we suspend our judgement, and allow it to be what it is…. neither good nor bad, but simply for our learning…

This is not to say the more we live in accord with Universal Law the more we will feel like we are skipping through a bed of roses.

Besides, roses have thorns!

The Law of Acceptance will will eek out our falibilities and present us with experiences which we personally are more naturally inclined to judge in terms of good and bad. These will be the experinces we feel we can’t stomach and that we want to discard from life completely.

But, they must exist for our sake, so that we may learn to accept all that is in the world, so we may learn to choose wisely.

All is for our enlightenment.

All is Love…

The Low Down On Love

I love the verse in The Prophet by Kahlil Gibran. I have read it through the decades and have found more and more truth as the years have passed, and my experience and understaning has been amassed.

I hope this verse will resonate with you too…

Then said Almitra, Speak to us of Love.
     And he raised his head and looked upon the people, and there fell a stillness upon them. And with a great voice he said:
     When love beckons to you, follow him,
     Though his ways are hard and steep.
     And when his wings enfold you yield to him,
     Though the sword hidden among his pinions may wound you.
     And when he speaks to you believe in him,
     Though his voice may shatter your dreams as the north wind lays waste the garden.

     For even as love crowns you so shall he crucify you. Even as he is for your growth so is he for your pruning.
     Even as he ascends to your height and caresses your tenderest branches that quiver in the sun,
     So shall he descend to your roots and shake them in their clinging to the earth.
     Like sheaves of corn he gathers you unto himself
     He threshes you to make your naked.
     He sifts you to free you from your husks.
     He grinds you to whiteness.
     He kneads you until you are pliant;
     And then he assigns you to his sacred fire, that you may become sacred bread for God’s sacred feast.

     All these things shall love do unto you that you may know the secrets of your heart, and in that knowledge become a fragment of Life’s heart.

     But if in your heart you would seek only love’s peace and love’s pleasure,
     Then it is better for you that you cover your nakedness and pass out of love’s threshing-floor,
     Into the seasonless world where you shall laugh, but not all of your laughter, and weep, but not all of your tears.
     Love gives naught but itself and takes naught but from itself.
     Love possesses not nor would it be possessed;
     For love is sufficient unto love.

     When you love you should not say, “God is in my heart,” but rather, “I am in the heart of God.”
     And think not you can direct the course of love, for love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.

     Love has no other desire but to fulfil itself.
     But if you love and must needs have desires, let these be your desires:
     To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night.
     To know the pain of too much tenderness.
     To be wounded by your own understanding of love;
     And to bleed willingly and joyfully.
     To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving;
     To rest at the noon hour and meditate love’s ecstasy;
     To return home at eventide with gratitude;
     And then to sleep with a prayer for the beloved in your heart and a song of praise upon your lips.

Just Coz It’s Easy Doesn’t Mean It’s Not Hard!

Universal Law may be simple… but… that doesn’t mean it is easy.

This is why we are given so much time to figure it all out!

Sometimes the simplest things in life are easier said than done!

To Know Is Not To Be

Knowing and being are two very different things.

It is when we act in accordance with what we know to be true that we integrate that knowledge into our being. This, in fact, is what having integrity really means.

Being what we know is easier to say than do. It takes practice.

This is because knowing and being are two entirely separate things!

To Heal Means To Be Whole

Health is an Anglo Saxon word meaning whole. To be whole means to be oneself… and that means to act with integrity.

We we heal our fractured selves by acting in accordance with Universal Law we will heal ourselves physically, mentally and spiritually.

Universal Law is the path of health.

Come to Italy with me in October and really start to figure these things out… Just email me to let me know you’re interested and I’ll keep you informed…
