Law – Order – Glory

Law – Order – Glory

I did some Christmas shopping today and as I was driving through the congested traffic I was thinking of the argument by some that we do not need traffic rules.

I thought to myself “thank God there are stop signs, lights, lane dividers etc. To watch this mob drive from their heart only would be madness.”

First I have a difficult time understanding why some LDS are believers in lawlessness when Joseph Smith and the Mormon Scriptures stress the importance of law.

Whether one is a Mormon or not their scriptures give interesting thoughts on law.

Joseph taught that there are three kingdoms of glory awaiting us apparently after death. The highest is the celestial, which has glory comparable to the sun. The second is the Terrestrial which has a glory similar to the moon and the third called the Telestial has a glory like the stars. Where the glory is uniform in the higher, two the glory is diverse in the lowest is “as one star differs from another in glory.”

Now the interesting thing is that it is clearly written that one must abide “law” to enter any one of these kingdoms. Note the following scripture:

“For he who is not able to abide the law of a celestial kingdom cannot abide a celestial glory.

“And he who cannot abide the law of a terrestrial kingdom cannot abide a terrestrial glory.

“And he who cannot abide the law of a telestial kingdom cannot abide a telestial glory; therefore he is not meet for a kingdom of glory. Therefore he must abide a kingdom which is not a kingdom of glory.” D&C 88:22-24

Now there is the great principle revealed here that sheds light whether you are a Mormon or not. Note that it says that if one cannot abide the celestial law then he must bypass that kingdom, but if he cannot abide the law of the second kingdom then he cannot enter that one either. Finally, he must abide the law of the lowest kingdom to even stay there.

Now the interesting thing about this third kingdom is that the Mormons are taught that it is the earth where we now live. So what does this mean?

It means that if one cannot even abide by the basic laws which govern men here on the earth “he must abide a kingdom which is not a kingdom of glory.”

Joseph taught that there is a fourth kingdom which has no glory, not even the glory of the stars, very similar to the Eighth Sphere as taught by the Theosophists. He tells us that those who go there are a law unto themselves. This is a totally different idea than following the Holy Spirit or Higher Self but these characters reject the Holy Spirit and only follow the impulses of the lower self, or self interest, which, in the end, is no law producing no order and thus not harmonizing with any glory.

Now let us continue quoting the scripture:

“And again, verily I say unto you, that which is governed by law is also preserved by law and perfected and sanctified by the same.

“That which breaketh a law, and abideth not by law, but seeketh to become a law unto itself, and willeth to abide in sin, cannot be sanctified by law, neither by mercy, justice, nor judgment. Therefore, they must remain filthy still.

“All kingdoms (this would include human) have a law given; And unto every kingdom is given a law; and unto every law there are certain bounds also and conditions. All beings who abide not in those conditions are not justified.” D&C 88:34-36;38-39

Now examine the words of Christ in the New Testament:

“Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?” Matt 6:28-30

The disciples were probably very puzzled over this statement. I can just see Thomas scowling with the thought: “How can you compare ordinary lilies to the great glory which belong to Solomon? Has the Master forgot the glory of the gold, the wealth, the art, the temple and the adulation of the people which belonged to the great King?”

The disciples did not appreciate the words of Jesus in that day because they lacked the common microscope of today. When a Lily or any other plant of the field is magnified 100, 1000, or 100,000 times greater and greater glory is revealed.

How is the glory revealed?

It is revealed through the tremendous order which is manifest in the cells of the plant kingdom.

And what produces the order which creates vehicles for plant and all other lives on the earth?

Answer: It is the following of law. These little lives have consciousness and have comprehended the law which produces order which produces glory and they faithfully follow it, thus laying the foundation for even greater life which is you and me.

Then came the great promise from the Master:

“Shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith?”

When we look at a lily under high magnification we see an order and glory far surpassing anything that humanity has accomplished, yet the promise is that we will in the end have “much more” glory than this. Mankind will eventually follow molecular and cellular orders until the day comes that its organization and glory will surpass the glory of the lilies of the field.

One can only appreciate this promise if he can comprehend the glory which does indeed now exist in the microcosmic world of the simple plant kingdom. But we cannot at this time comprehend the glory which is yet to come. We must experience it to understand.

The Law of Mind

The Law of the Mind

There has been quite a bit of discussion of the biblical prediction of a time when the law would be written in our hearts and that this is the ideal which we should seek. This is indeed a grand ideal and it is one that I have written much of and do seek myself.

However, has anyone stopped to ask what our governing situation would be if this idea became a reality with the great majority of humankind?

Would we then have no written laws?

Not necessarily.


For one thing the law which is to be written in our hearts is the basic sense of right and wrong. Right being defined as that where the greater love and harmlessness is revealed, and wrong where love is suppressed and harm is inflicted.

However there are many more laws that bring order in society which have nothing to do with right and wrong, but instead have a purpose to create order and peace. These laws are not written in the heart and have to do with mind and little with heart.

So let us divide laws that humans use to govern themselves into two categories.

(1) Moral law or laws of the heart – the obedience of which manifests the love of God.

(2) Laws of Order (Mental laws) – laws of the mind that bring peace and order. These laws manifest the intelligence of God manifesting through mankind.

Category One – Moral laws

The ten commandments are moral laws and many of our current civil laws owe their origin to them.

What is unrealized by many is that the day of having law written in our hearts is not in the far future, but mankind has indeed made great progress toward this goal in the here and now

Her are some moral laws that are written in the hearts of over 90% of the people:

Thou shat not kill.

Few people need any law to tell then this for this is indeed written in the hearts of almost all people.

Thou shalt not steal

Again – even among those who have broken this law is a realization that this is a just law and should be followed.

Other moral laws which are written in the hearts of most are:

Thou shalt not lie

Thou shalt not commit adultery

Thou shalt not commit rape

We should love our family, friends & neighbors

Each human being deserves equal rights

Most support some plan to help the sick and the poor

Most believe we should give some type of donation to help those less fortunate than ourselves

Slavery is wrong

Taking drugs in addictive amounts is wrong

Animals should be treated humanly

The earth is our home and we must take care of her to insure it is a livable place in future generations.

In the days of Jeremiah, who wrote of the law being written in the heart, these moral concepts we take for granted were not enough a part of the human psyche that one could depend on the average person supporting without the benefit of a written law.

Today these laws are written in the hearts of most and we can rest assured that most of our friends understand and support them.

Now let us look at the outrageous crime of murder. Probably over 99% of humanity have this law written in their hearts, but still there are a small handful that feel justified in the nefarious act.

Now you or I do not need a law to tell us not to commit this act, but there are still a few who do. Because of those few we still need a written law with a punishment affixed. If such is not the case, the one who has not the law in his heart could terrorize a whole city with impunity.

The same thing with theft. Most of us do not steal, for the law is in our hearts and we need no one to tell us what to do here. Nevertheless, there is a small minority who do not have this law in their hearts and for them a physical law with punishment affixed is required.

Over the last 100 years humanity has made a lot of progress in the direction of the law being written in the heart. During the next 200 years much more progress will be made.

Does this mean that when the New Age is securely manifest we will need no written law concerning theft, rape, or personal injury?

No. We will probably need these basic laws with punishments affixed for thousands of years to come, for humanity will not attain perfection overnight, but such perfection will take a long period of time.

Today we do not need any law telling us to breathe, for we need no such law. Even the lowest of human life breath on their own free will with no need of law. When the basic moral laws become written in our hearts to the extent that their fulfillment becomes as natural as breathing, because even the lowest of mankind realizes the necessity, then the written law can be done away with. Until that time the peaceable people will need the basic protection of the written law.

As the Gathering of Lights proceeds and the Lights of the earth are able to live under their own law, then these gatherings will demonstrate the ability to live in harmony with fewer and fewer moral laws until the time comes that none will be required.

Category Two – Laws of Order

These are a totally different type of law than moral laws and will not cease with the New Age but will assist in stabilizing the New Age so peace can reign supreme throughout the earth.

What is the difference between a moral law and a mental law?

Answer – a moral law deals with right and wrong whereas a law of order is required to create order and tranquility and has little or nothing to do with right wrong. Laws of order may be silly or wise, but there is little right or wrong in them.

Example of a Law of Order:

Covenants and restrictions in various neighborhoods. Here law is created by either a majority vote of a neighborhood or by the building developers. These laws do not interfere with free will because each occupant has an obligation to study these rules before he chooses to live there and agrees to abide by the rules when he buys his home. If he does not like the laws of order he can choose a different neighborhood.

Typical of such laws are the prohibition of farm animals such as horses, pigs and chickens. Now most people in a residential area would not consider bringing in a farm animal, but there is always the oddball who would do so, causing the whole neighborhood to awaken at the crack of dawn by his favorite crowing rooster.

This law of order prevents this problem and brings peace to the residents. The guy who wants his rooster can go buy a five acre piece on the outskirts of town and have his farm animals.

Contrary to this law of order violating free agency, free agency is enhanced because the residents have freely chosen to maintain and obey these laws of order.

The election chaos of 2000 (Bush and Gore) could have been easily prevented by clear laws of order. A large part of what has created the chaos has been too many laws and conflicting standards from county to county in Florida.

The problem then with current law is not what is right or wrong, but what is clear and not clear.

It matters not so much as to which is best – a hand count or a machine count – but what matters is that a clear standard must be established so when the rule is followed the results will be sure, and no rules will be changed in the middle of the game.

It is not that hanging chads or dimpled ballots are right or wrong, but a clear standard must be approved ahead of time and followed. A clear cut off date must be established with no ambiguity, as was in the current one, so there can be a definite cut off and a clear winner announced.

Because we have too many laws the problem that occurs is that one law may seem crystal clear, but then a clever attorney can find another rule which seems to dispute it and throw the process into disarray.

The importance of laws of order are particularly obvious when we observe almost any sport. Let us take American football for example. Often times a football team will be composed of fairly unruly, difficult to manage men, emotionally grounded, many of whom have criminal records. Even so they are familiar with the rules of the game and such rules are strongly drilled into their heads by their coach.

So when we watch football what do we see? We see a beautiful organization created out of a potential mob mentality. Instead of chaos we see a wonderful association, and the following of laws of order to create an exciting game to watch.

What would happen if your team made the winning touchdown and the referee said:

“We are discounting this touchdown because we have decided that we need no rules.”

Suddenly, the whole purpose along with the enjoyment of the game would immediately disintegrate and chaos would reign supreme.

No game with purpose or enjoyment can be played without Law or rules of order.

In the past, nations have played out the game of war with little or no rules and the toll on humanity has been great. If we can cease war and play our games of conquest through international sport or other means, then order will indeed be created out of disorder.

Where has there ever been a game played with no laws of order? There is no such thing. Even so, the “new order of the ages” will not exist without ground rules of order.

Could we even have an election without rules of voting time, rules of counting, standards and rules that determine a winner? NO. We will always need such rules even though what is right or wrong morally may be written in our hearts.

We face the same problem of in the creation of the new age. Without the law of mind, the laws of order, we will have no new age, no order, but only confusion and disorder. Only through just laws of order created by those who are polarized in the mind or above can a lasting peace and purpose come to the earth.

Question: Name three Laws of Order which will assist mankind in creating the New Age of Peace. Tell us why you believe this.

Walls and Borders, Part 9

This entry is part 9 of 9 in the series Walls Borders

Walls and Borders, Part 9

Achieving Unity

It is interesting to contemplate how difficult it is for humans and groups of us to achieve unity. A group can accept the same sacred writings, the same Constitution, the same structure, the same goal and yet come to very different conclusions as to how to proceed.

For instance, many have the same Bible but there are thousands of differing religions having different interpretations of the same book.

This phenomenon repeats itself with all groups who hold dear to an authority and more modern writings of DK HPB and others are no exception.

When we disagree why can we not just go to our authoritative source materials and reach agreement? Why will two people read the same words and interpret so differently?

On each issue, is there not a point of highest truth that is available to perceive through the soul if both just look together?

Indeed there is.

What then prevents it from happening?

There are many obstacles preventing unity and that is few are willing to consistently look through the eyes of the soul. Even those who have established some soul contact allow the personality with its lower desires to creep in and make is lower will felt.

The personality interprets according to its bias, programming and personal desire, and, as these are different with each individual, you rarely will have two personalities agreeing on all issues.

On the other hand, if two people focus on the soul and put its will over the personality on all issues, agreement can be obtained and the point of workable truth will be seen together.

The problem with finding political unity is that finding agreement entails much more than just finding facts and agreeing on them. When have you ever won a political argument by quoting a true fact?

The main thing required for finding the best solution is judgment. Finding the right direction requires good judgment and as personalities we are very flawed in this quality. The pilgrim only gains good judgment when consistent soul contact is attained.

The problem with the personality is that it sees things in black and white, all good or all bad.

For instance, some see nationalism, borders and laws they do not like as all good or all bad . But what may be good in application now may be detrimental at another time. Thus, the black and white approach without judgment is always doomed to failure.

Disciples have to look at each situation and figure out what is best for the individual, the group, the country and the world. Then he must weigh the elements and make a decision as to how to proceed.

A border wall, for instance, may be beneficial now, but need to be torn down in a few years if good judgment prevails.

In one generation it may be vey beneficial to take in large numbers of immigrants, but in another, not so much.

It is the tendency of those in the personality to want a matter settled and then not to have to trouble themselves thinking about it again.

The problem is the only thing that stays the same is change and tomorrow always requires a different view and decision than today.

Law is required for a society to live in harmony. D K says this:

“In all things cosmic, perfect law and order are found.”

TCF, Page 212

Concerning law Percival, who some think is the Master P, said this:

“Law and justice do rule the world. If it were not so there would be no circulation in nature. Masses of matter could not be dissolved into units, the infinitesimals and atoms and molecules could not combine into definite structure; the earth, sun, moon and stars could not move in their courses and be continually held in their relation to each other in their bodily and spatial immensities. It is against sense and reason, and worse than madness, to fancy that law and justice might not rule the world. If it were possible that law and justice might be stopped for one minute, the result would be universal chaos and death. Universal justice rules the world by law in consonance with knowledge. With knowledge there is certainty; with knowledge there is no room for doubt.”

Democracy and Self Government by Percival

Perfect law governs the universe, but such perfection has not yet found its way into human society. The hope is that the power of the seventh ray in the Age of Aquarius will cause harmony through law on earth as it is in heaven.

If, therefore, our laws do not seem to be in harmony with spirit, instead of becoming lawless and breaking them, we need to change them so the will of the people will be satisfied.

Walls and Borders, Part 7

This entry is part 7 of 9 in the series Walls Borders

Walls and Borders, Part 7

Law Creates Order

A fourth argument again uses labels rather than reason to attack those who support borders and Immigration law. They label such people as being anti immigration. “We are a nation of immigrants,” they say. “Immigrants made us who we are and we should welcome them.”

Those who support the enforcement of immigration law, as far as is feasible, find this accusation very insulting, deceptive and disingenuous. Neither myself, nor anyone I have talked to on the right, is anti immigration, and labeling us as such is just mean spirited deception.

I suppose there may be a few out there who are anti immigration, though I have not met them, but overall most on the right are pro immigration. They just want to process to proceed according to law to insure that those who do come in can be successfully assimilated and be a benefit to the country.

America was indeed built by immigrants, but they were legal immigrants. Our forefathers did not break existing law to come here.

Those who break existing law to enter the country are not legal immigrants, nor can they be considered immigrants when the law of the country says it is illegal for them to be here.

The comeback on this is the illogical statement that “there is no such thing as an illegal person.”

The implication is that the right is saying that it is illegal to be a person which is just plain silly. No one thinks this.

On the other hand, if a person breaks the law he is then an illegal person, meaning he is a person doing something illegal. A burglar or even someone speeding is an illegal person in that area of activity until he gets his case settled with the State.

Anyone breaking our laws is an illegal where that particular activity is concerned.

This requires such simple logic that it should not have to be addressed, but unfortunately it does.

So what are the real views of the typical person on the right when the distorted labels are stripped away?

I’ll give my views which represent many on the right.

I am pro immigration but want it done according to law. Negating law is a very dangerous avenue to pursue, as where does it end? If we say we can disregard immigration law and get away with it then we can do this with other laws we may not like because we feel personally justified. This would lead to chaos.

Now some conservatives do not pay taxes because they do not agree with tax law or outright reject it. They are equally misled. If everyone can merely obey the laws with which they agree, and break all the others, it wouldn’t be long before the country would be destroyed and controlled by pirates and roving gangs.

It is called “law and order” for a reason because without law there is no order.

I am happy to welcome legal immigrants who want to come here and assimilate. Many of them appreciate our country more than we who were born here.

If the majority are not happy with current immigration law then it should be revised to represent the will of the people. But whether we retain existing law or create new law such law needs to be respected and enforced, else we will not have order for there is no orderly society without law.

It is true that some laws are too strict and others too lenient and adjustment is continually needed, but concerning this DK says:

“The final postulate which I seek to emphasize is that the keeping of these three laws will lead necessarily to an urgent desire to keep the law of the land in which a particular soul has incarnated. That these man-made laws are inadequate I well know, and it is needless to point this out. They may be, and are, temporary and insufficient to the need. They may fail in their scope and prove inadequate, but they do, in a measure, safeguard the little feeble ones, and will be regarded therefore as binding upon those who are seeking to help the race. These laws are subject to change as the effect of the three great laws makes itself felt, but until they are wisely altered (and this takes time) they act as a brake on license and on selfishness. They may also work hardship. This none can deny. But the hardships they bring are not so evil in their nature nor so lasting in their effects as would be the result of their removal and the consequent inauguration of a cycle of law-less-ness. Therefore, the server of the race cooperates with the laws of the land in his daily life, working at the same time for the removal of the injustices they may produce and for the bettering of the legal impositions upon mankind in his country.

In the recognition of these four laws,—of Rebirth, of Love, of the group, and of the Land,—we shall see the salvation of the race.

Esoteric Psychology, Vol 1, Page 303

This statement reflects some good common sense of which some who tread the path need to be reminded.
