Universal laws or cosmic laws are the underpinnings of reality. Without them, reality as we know it would not exist. Universal law gives order to the universe. It is not necessary to be aware of these laws for them to affect you. Universal laws are always operating in the back drop of the physical world with or without our knowledge. |
Universal laws are the forces enacted by the Creator(s) to allow humans to experience physical reality. Physical reality is the environment where humans experience ‘life’. I sometimes refer to life as the ‘human experiment’. I believe the purpose of life is to create tests and challenges designed to improve our character, and grow in spirit. Some people refer to these experiments as ‘missions’. We carry out our missions through the roles we assume. Roles are analogous to the many ‘hats we wear’ in our relationships. People form relationships for many reasons. Some of these relationships include marriage, employment, social groups, and whole societies.
One of the easiest physical laws to observe is gravity. We can all appreciate that gravity keeps our feet planted to the ground. There was a time when gravity was not officially recognized by name. Yet humans have always been aware of its effect on them.
There are natural consequences for ignoring or violating these universal laws. If you jump out of a plane without a parachute, the law of gravity will ensure that you hit the ground. Everyone understands this result without even being told. Only cartoon characters walk away intact from stunts like that.
Universal laws work much the same as societal laws. In the United States, we drive on the right side of the road. Everyone who is granted a driver’s license is expected to observe this rule. It’s for our safety that we all agree to this. If we drive on the left side of the road, someone is bound to get injured.
My understanding is that, at one time, the universal laws were known only to a relatively small number of people. My sense is that these laws were withheld from society because it was thought that they would misuse it for personal gain. Conspiracy theorists contend that certain elitist groups kept this metaphysical knowledge hidden to retain power over the people. I am unable validate this statement. In any case, metaphysics came into the main stream decades ago and is now available to the general population.
I can see the true purpose of universal law is largely misunderstood. There are many misguided individuals (who often assume the ambiguous title of life coach) selling books and programs encouraging people to seek fame and fortune using the law of attraction. It’s certainly possible to make your dreams come to life with a little instruction. There’s a quaint saying that should be considered before exploiting universal law for personal gain: “Be careful what you wish for.” It’s a mistake manipulate the universal laws for self-indulgence and hedonistic pursuits. It’s true; we can use them for that purpose, but there are consequences in doing so. Misuse of the certain universal laws such as the principle of attraction can lead to a miserable existence. Again, the universal laws were designed to support the life of the planet and the enactment of the human experience. People typically ask for what they believe they want and not necessarily what is good for them. This strategy often ends in regret and unhappiness.
Also, when professional life coaches speak about the Law of Abundance, they are not referring to the accumulation of fabulous wealth and material possessions. This principle is grossly misunderstood and exploited by those who possess only a limited understanding of universal law. The Law of Abundance is one of the more misinterpreted universal laws. The saying: “He who dies with the most toys wins” flies in the face of the true meaning of this principle. A correct understanding of abundance should give us contentment rather than an insatiable appetite to consume everything we lay our eyes on. Any urge that mindlessly drives us to accumulate riches does not come from a sense of deprivation.
Another universal law that I have spoken about in past articles is the Law of Growth. I believe that I was in error in stating that the purpose of organic life forms is unrestricted reproduction. Unrestrained growth is dangerous to life on a planet with limited space and resources. When I speak about the Law of Growth, I am referring to consciousness. Maybe I should retitle this metaphysical principle the Law of Expanding Consciousness. Consciousness is not limited to the confines of physical space.
A person should educate himself/herself in the operation of the universal laws in order to achieve a positive outcome. Read as a much as you can. I recommend using universal laws for self-improvement. This means doing a self-exploration to identify negative emotions and beliefs that may be blocking your path to personal fulfillment. If you have the funds, I suggest hiring a professional life coach to guide you through the process.
