Karma and the Law of Cause and Effect, Law of Free Will, the Golden Rule and more...

“A simple example of the law of cause and effect is the tossing of a boomerang. When you toss it, it always comes back. In everyday life, we hear the saying often, “What goes around comes around!” Others may express it the way Jesus did in Galatians 6:7, “As ye sow, so shall ye reap.” The Sanskrit word for this concept is karma. We hear this term often, yet many of us have not taken the time to ponder the implications of this universal law.”
Note: I would use the term ‘Absolute Law of Cause and Effect’ because this is a Cosmic Law just as the ‘Law of Harmony’ is.

The Law of Free Will
“Consider the much-repeated question, “Why does God allow bad things to happen?” This involves a law that is closely related to the law of cause and effect—the law of free will. Free will implies noninterference by God in the lives of humanity. Free will is a necessary ingredient for the evolution of the soul. In being allowed to create our own reality, our own future, we can see the consequences of our actions, the results of the law of cause and effect, which can ultimately teach us right action…if we pay attention. The two laws complement one another—you can’t have one without the other.”
Note: God will send His Angels if you will but ask. This is not interference.

The Golden Rule—Alchemy for a Wonderful Life
“The Golden Rule, taught by Jesus and other spiritual masters, is a one-sentence guideline for living successfully. You will find various wordings of the Golden Rule in Hinduism, Buddhism, Confucianism, Islam and Jainism. The teaching, simply stated, in Matthew 7:12 is, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” Once we understand karma, which is the law of cause and effect, we understand that we can create a wonderful future for ourselves and accelerate our consciousness if we treat others the way we would like to be treated. Some have called this “enlightened self-interest;” and that it truly is.
Applying the Golden Rule is basic if we wish to live a rewarding and joyous life. As we ponder these universal laws, we accelerate our awakening; and through right choices, we attain to higher levels of consciousness.”

The Immaculate Concept:
“Holding the “immaculate concept” is a phrase denoting how we can visualize and focus on the perfect image or divine blueprint of a person, idea, situation or project such that it may more easily manifest its ideal. This is spiritual alchemy. Each conception that we hold of beauty, poise and grace on behalf of others actually creates an energy field of purity around them so that they can tap into those uplifting feelings and thoughtforms and then express them. This divine art also involves the science of picturization or divine imagination and is actually a form of holy, unspoken prayer.”
“The blessed Mother Mary performed this great service on behalf of her son, Jesus, who, through her great nurturing love and devotion, was able to fulfill his mission of fully manifesting the Christ-ideal as an example for all mankind to follow. After Mother Mary’s ascension, she appeared to Saint Bernadette Soubirous and told the young girl, “I am the Immaculate Conception.” She is indeed the Earth’s principle exemplar of one who is able to continuously holds the immaculate concept for all of God’s children.”

Note: If you supplement the teachings above with the series “Inner Worlds, Outer Worlds”, you’ll have a much broader knowledge base.

Note: You should neither be too casual nor overly serious in pursuing your studies. Merely recognize when certain aspects of material resonates within your ‘heart of hearts’. Where you find joy within, allow that to guide the mental. Use common sense and don’t glamorize things.

And do practice the Golden Rule. It was Jesus’s greatest commandment to Love Thy Neighbor. It’s your own soul that benefits most, at first; but, it’s then that the whole world is affected by your kindness, compassion, tolerance, courage (God Qualities).
