The Law of Labeling
"If I were to say, 'I study magic,' this would immediately bring up all the associations and stored data under the label 'magic.' Some people would believe I am a stage magician; some people would think I am a Satanist, while still others would decide that I study magic as a historian. Yet none of these opinions actually has anything to do with what I would mean by the word 'magic.'"
"When you symbolize something, you impose the deep structure of the symbol system used on the way you perceive the thing symbolized." In actuality, nothing changes of the thing in itself; what changes is one's attitudes and reactions to the thing being symbolized. The danger lies here: one's attitudes and reactions as a result of one's belief concerning a thing might greatly damage the integrity of the thing if it chooses to conform to the lie of the label, and it also karmically affects oneself. For instance, calling someone "worthless" whether justified or not damages firstly, our own psyche in subtle ways; and secondly, it might harm the other person's psyche if he is not spiritually centered. In truth the label "worthless" does not reflect the reality where every creature is worthy in the eyes of God.
"People tend to believe that they understand something when they have a name for it. This is called nominalization. It enables people to take very ill-defined concepts and continuing processes and talk about them as if they were concrete things. The problem is that frequently even the users of these terms or names do not know what they mean.' For instance, we call a certain force electricity, and yet we hardly know what it is. "Nominalization is an important tool. However, we must realize when we are using," and misusing it, or to cause it to overpower us.
The Law of Energy Conservation
Since Nature functions in a manner that conserves energy, so man must reflect her processes in order to fulfill his sense of oneness and harmony with her. Succinctly, the evolutionary progress of man lies in energy conservation. Man's essential substance or energy has to be increased, conserved, cultivated, transformed, sublimated, and circulated throughout the energy-structure of the microcosm. Such an alchemical process generates and regenerates man's life principle and offers rapid unfoldment of the spiritual faculties. The Law of Energy Conservation and its rich rewards may also be applied to other organisms as well such as a city, a planet, a business firm, etc. This law is related to the Law of Economy.
The Law of Association
Law of Similarity
"The cause and effect resemble, (or) have resonance with one another." As an example, a magical ritual "to cause a rainstorm might involve dripping water onto the ground. A ritual to fly might involve wearing feathers and chirping like a bird, etc." A poppet or doll constructed to resemble someone may resonate with that person; and any action exerted upon the doll with great emotional force may also affect the person. This is called "sympathetic magic," and is often abused by occult practitioners.
Law of Contagion
Things once in contact continue to interact at subtle levels after physical separation. "Anything once in contact with a substance, person, or object may be used as a 'witness'" or an etheric link for that substance, person, or object; and through that link influence them in certain ways. "A good example would be the traditional use of hair or nail clippings attached to a voodoo doll," for the purpose of influencing the person that the doll represents. "A witness could be thought of like a tuning crystal in a radio." Another aspect of this law functions thus: an object from a thing, such as from an animal, when worn imbue us with the animal's inherent qualities. Its magnetism modifies our own force-field. The application of this law is called "homeopathic magic," and is related to the Law of Connections. The laws of Similarity and Contagion work hand in hand.
The Law of Pattern
"In systems, the most probable state is rest (dispersion of available energy). Since systems tend towards entropy, the least probable state is that of potential work. Thus, we can think of the degree of order in a system as the amount of energy in it."
In a different sense, pattern is information. Information is energy. The more information you have, the less energy you may need to expend depending upon the correctness of the information. Knowledge is power.
"Some people have defined life as negative entropy because it evolves; i.e., develops greater and greater complexities of pattern. In this sense, the universe becomes more intelligent every day," because the greater the complexity, the greater the intelligence.
Law of Intelligence
"A pattern more complex than ourselves could be said to be more intelligent than us. Keep in mind, though, that the human brain is still far more complex than the most advanced computer yet built."
In his smugness man may consider himself to be the epitome or acme of creation; however, the acme of creation has not been typified by any creature of God and never will be, for the process of evolution is eternal and the goal is never really reached. Poetically, we may say that although we may touch the outer fringes of a flame, we will never ever be able to reach its central core. The core always recedes from us.
The Law of Self-Preservation
At a lower level, the body of an organism is identified as the self; thus self-preservation at this level entails preserving the body from harm or extinction. Some strains of viruses, though inimical to man and struggling against the attempts of men to destroy them, are simply obeying the natural law of existence. Fundamentally, all life-units have a right to exist so long as they do not encroach upon the existence of other life-units and disturb the harmony of the Universe.
At a higher level, from the spiritual person upwards, although encompassing the lower aspects of preserving the physical vehicle from harm, self-preservation also implies preserving or maintaining the awareness of one's Real Self, one's true identity, one's Divine Spark at the level of one's mundane consciousness. In contemporary mysticism, this level of consciousness is called "Cosmic Consciousness," or the sankalpa samadhi of the Hindu Yogis.
The Law of Harmony
Maintaining harmony within the microcosmic components and the microcosm's relationship with the universe are a fundamental purpose of life. It is a natural and simple way of life without the indulgence of any excess or shortages. Too much or too little of one thing causes problems. An excess of pleasure results in pain, for instance. Too little physical movement or exercise may cause an anemic condition. Equilibrium should be sought in all conditions. Harmony means peace, contentment, and spiritual awareness. Living in attunement and alignment with the laws governing one's being results in harmony. The Law of Harmony is also the Law of Balance. This law when applied help make us masters of ourselves and Nature, or conquerors over any agitated conditions which can occur in any dimension of Divine Existence.
Everything has a Yin and Yang aspect. Everything is balanced and harmonious in Nature. If there is an up, there is also a down; if there is an inside there is also an outside; if there are many, there are also a few; if there is fullness, there is also emptiness; what occurs in the north will also occur in the south, what occurs in the east will also occur in the west; if there is that which is far, there is also that which is near; that which is on the left, also that which is on the right, etc. This law aids us in reading the signs that Nature produces in understanding situations, conditions, and circumstances. This law is also associated with the Law of Synchronicity.
Harmony may also be defined as the submission of one's will to Cosmic laws, to God's unfolding Plan and to the Cosmic Intelligences that cooperate with Cosmic laws in bringing God's Plan into manifestation.
The Law of Love
One's spiritual growth is dependent upon the unfoldment of love within one's heart. The greater our unconditional and impersonal love, directed by wisdom and understanding, the greater our spirituality. Love has to be expressed wisely and not foolishly in a self-centered, sentimental manner. Where there is emptiness and depression in a person's life, you can be sure it is caused by a lack of love. A person who does not know how to give love or to receive love is spiritually sick. Love must first be generated within if we are to experience it coming from without. "Love increases as judgement decreases." Before sending love out to the world we must first possess it within ourselves. We cannot give what we do not have. However, it is more important to love than to be loved--the former is essential, the latter less so--not even necessary for spiritual advancement. When one is full of love one does not go seeking for it.
Everything in the universe is directed by the Law of Love. In Christianity, Love is synonymous to God. People normally associate love with emotions; however, love is more than sentimentality. At man's present stage of evolution, it is clearly felt as an emotion because within the microcosm, the feeling, astral body, is one of the most responsive to its influence. The physical body is likewise very reactive to the love force, it does so through the desire for sexual union. As man progresses he will respond mentally and spiritually to the love force as he now does in a physical and an emotional way. When man loves, he should do so through the exercise of his will and not be prompted to express its imitation at the call of the base instincts. This should not be interpreted to mean that sex is solely an animalistic act. The expression of the sexual force may be divine or it may be otherwise depending on how we channel it through our energy-structure.
The ancient Greek philosophers classified love into three different categories: Eros, Philos, and Agape; or sexual, brotherly, and divine love, respectively. Love is a powerful remedy to many mundane problems, although one must clearly know the difference between personal, selfish love, and impersonal, divine love. Basically, there are two expressions of love that holy, masterful beings express: unconditional and impersonal love. Unconditional love is love expressed to and for another without any thought of self, without any expectation or hope for a return of that love, or for any reward. Spiritual beings are aware that they are the embodiment of love itself and thus need nothing in return. For loving another is loving oneself. Impersonal love is loving another or others without any undue attachment to the object of one's love or affection. One gives freedom to others to be themselves and one is not too upset if one ends up being a victim of a sour relationship. A higher aspect of loving is to express it with understanding and wisdom--through an enlightened mind..
The Law of Records
Whatever action, words, or thoughts expressed by beings, whether done secretly or openly, are recorded in Akasha. This law is a subconscious working of the Cosmic Mind, meaning that it works automatically without any angelic intelligence directing it. However, in some cases, as in certain important events of a solar, planetary, or human level, records are kept and well organized within the repositories in the spiritual realms by certain spiritual guardians. These repositories are called the "Hall of Records," and are looked after by beings of a high spiritual caliber. Advanced occultists are able to read the Akashic Records pertaining to a person, object, or place; however what low-calibre psychics often read are the reflections and distortions of the Akashic Records existing in the lower planes of Maya. Psychometry is an occult art of reading records impressed onto objects. Most haunted houses are the result of imprinted events of the past. In such cases, although no real "ghosts" are involved in the haunting, the emotional impact of past events were strong enough for psychic images to be impressed and live in the Akashic substance of the environment and be re-played during the right environmental conditions for the average person to experience, or read by the genuine psychic.
In the microcosm, or man in his totality, various components function as recording devices for the thoughts, feelings, actions, and level of soul-development of the incarnated soul. Such components are the seed-atoms, the aura, the causal body, the chakras, the blood-stream, and the skeletal bones.
The Law of Economy
To be economical refers to the right use of cosmic substance in accordance with the Divine Plan and in harmony with the Divine purpose--or in harmony with one's conscience and one's sense of responsibility. In the field of economics, the Law of Economy is usually applied through the processes of recycling, energy conservation, and the right use of Nature's resources.
The Law of Resurrection
Here the word resurrection does not refer to the rising from the grave at the trumpet call of the "last day," or the end of the world. Certain religions would have us believe this; from the metaphysical point of view this is a fallacious notion; however, there is an esoteric side to this: resurrection from the grave is symbolic of the soul rising from the grave of human consciousness into the light of Divine Consciousness. Resurrection, therefore, refers to consciousness-expansion, to spiritual transcendence of the mortal state of consciousness. Although one may "die daily" like St. Paul, one should also daily resurrect one's consciousness.
The Law of Sacrifice and Death
Sacrifice also entails giving up self-centeredness and self-importance for the good and welfare of the whole. Serving others instead of catering to one's lower self is one of the keys that open the portals of heaven. Surrendering one's egoistic will for the true will of God embodied in our Higher Self is an act of sacrifice; however such an act may be an act of joy depending on our perspective. Selflessness, sacrifice, service and surrender are the four keys that leads to spiritual attainment. They are the means to spiritual growth.
Each true sacrifice is a work that beautifies the Soul. It paves the way toward greater and greater glories and achievements in God's infinite universe.
The Law of Sacrifice is related to the Law of Submission where one simply allows the Higher Intelligence to do its work through our consciousness without any egoic interference and without moping about the results or outcome.
The Law of Supply and Demand
The Law of Split and Divide
This split and divide law can be observed at the cellular level where cells divide and multiply under the direction of an unknown intelligence. Why do cells divide and multiply? For the same reason that the One generated the many. This may not tell us much but an in-depth understanding of this law reveals much concerning the secrets of creation.
The Law of Transmutation
Man's spiritual growth is dependent upon the degree that he transmutes his microcosmic principles into a glorious expression fit enough for the Lord of the Universe to dwell. This law like many others, is subjected to the direction of the will of man.
The Law of Numerology
Though numerology is now promoted as an occult art of fortune telling, the real power and esoteric side of numbers remains as yet unknown to most occultists. This esoteric value of numbers was intensively studied by Pythagoras, one of the ancient Greek philosophers. Pythagoras referred to numbers in the following terms: Monad-1, Duad-2, Triad-3, Tetrad-4, Pentad-5, Hexad-6, Heptad-7, Ogdoad-8, Ennead-9, and Decad-10. The study of numbers is deep and profound and this brief description of the Law of Numerology does not do the subject any justice.
The Law of Assumption
To assume the feelings of a person or a thing is an outstanding action. To assume the feelings of a plant or tree brings oneness or realization that you are that which you assumed. Anything can be assumed: stones, plants, animals, spirits, human beings, gods, angels, and even the Cosmic Mind. By assuming a thing it is possible to acquire the virtues/vices of the thing. The Law of Assumption may also be called the Law of Identification.
One of the related laws of the Law of Assumption is the Law of Attunement. When two things resonate with one another they are said to be in attunement. In such a state there may be an energy-exchange between the two things.
The Law of Liberty
The Law of Liberty declares that all beings are free to express their pristine, innate nature so long as it does not harm anyone or anything; and anyone or anything that interferes with that expression violates the Law of Liberty and will be karmically responsible. It is believed by some that angels do not possess freedom of choice as do human beings; that they are spiritual automatons, doing only that what they have been programmed to do by the Creator. This is not entirely accurate. Certain classes of angels have evolved to the point where they choose to transcend their own personal will and carry-out the will of the Cosmic for the welfare of all. No egoism is left in them.
One's spirituality grows as one liberates oneself from self-imposed mortal restrictions. One is free to believe, think, and act as a mortal as one will; however, it is the courageous soul that frees itself from such mental bondage. All beings that liberate themselves from the lower will attain the higher. Liberty is a precious gift that humanity ought to treasure. It is through this law that our character develops with the choices that we make in our mundane lives. Whether our choices are "right" or "wrong," it is all part of the learning process. Hindering someone making mistakes may stall the growth of that person. The mistakes we make should be our own and not another's. Progress at any level and in any form proceeds rapidly for all parties concerned when this law is applied.
The Law of Tithing
What is the value of tithing? By giving away a portion of our earnings or that which we have been blessed with, we ensure their continual supply in abundance. To use an expression: by casting our bread upon the waters, it returns to us manifold. What we give returns to us multiplied. The more we give the more we receive. So-called luck is the result of abundant giving. The Cosmic Intelligences adjusts the return of, or the "when," "how," and "where" of our tithing.
The vital attitude behind the whole Law of Tithing is that of sincerity. The law works truly if we give in all sincerity without actually expecting anything in return. To give without being sincere does not evoke the Law into operation. To crave for the fruit of one's action fails to bring the desired abundance into our lives.
The Law of Obedience
The Law of Harmlessness
The Law of Consecration
Consecration evokes a higher sense of purpose and being. It causes improved psychological changes in the person being consecrated; or if it is a thing, it gives it a value of spiritual significance. Consecrated purposes is the drive, the motivating force, the power of great achievements. Anyone wishing to accomplish something great in this world should consecrate or dedicate his work to the object of his love, most appropriately to the highest concept of God that he or she embraces. Living a consecrated life speeds up soul-growth. The Law of Consecration can thus be said to be a sub-law of the Law of Evolution.
The Law of Divine Circulation
The Law of Detachment
The emotional body is susceptible to glamour, whereas the mental body is susceptible to illusion. Detachment is a way of mastering the mental sheath and emotional body. Whatever good or ill happens to one's personality, one's vehicles of expressions in this physical world, one should maintain one's calm and poise. One should be centered upon the Soul-level.
The Law of Discernment
Whatever is evanescent in Nature is unreal. The Real is immutable, it does not change. Forms are related to illusions, whereas the essence that brought forms into existence is the part of Nature that is Real. Identifying oneself with what is unreal is ignorance and prolongs one's consciousness in a state of slumber. The awakening liberates oneself from the mortal state. The application of Viveka is related to introspection, Self-inquiry and Jnana Yoga. This is reflected in such questions such as "Who am I?" "What am I?" By exercising the Law of Discernment we eventually transcend the lower planes and reach the spiritual dimensions.
The Law of Immortality
What is Real is eternal, or immortal. The false is ever-changing. Man is a mixture of both the Real and the unreal. A mixture of Truth and Maya. There is a part of him that is immortal and a part of him that is ephemeral; a part of him that is being and a part of him that is becoming. Identification with the part that is in a constant state of change causes a displacement in one's consciousness. This leads to a state of confusion regarding one's Self-identity and one's purpose of being. Amidst such confusion the false ego and so-called human limitation has its birth and is sustained until one breaks the barrier of mortal beliefs and identify with one's true Self, the part of us that is Real, immortal and divine.
Physical immortality is a possibility and has been demonstrated by some mystic masters throughout the ages. Though everlasting youth and physical immortality may be a dream to some, it is a reality to those who follow the path of spiritual and physical regeneration. Physical immortality does not imply that one will live in the physical body forever. It does, however, give one the divine right and occult ability to determine when one should leave this physical plane, whether it be ten years or 2,000 years from now. When that time comes, the physical body does not die in the customary manner. It is transformed into light. This is what Javanese mystics call "moksha," although the word has a different connotation in Yogic philosophy. This transformation adds a new dimension to the expression, "great men do not die, they simply fade away." The methods of acquiring youth and immortality though carefully hidden have been revealed to the spiritual disciples of this modern age. Some of the secret laws of these two prized conditions, everlasting youth and physical immortality, are actually revealed in these papers on Cosmic laws, though they are not openly declared as such. Those with eyes to see, let them see.
The Law of Necessity
The Law of Effectiveness
The Law of Power
The Law of Now
The Law of Infinity
The Law of Uncertainty
