Consider this ... the 'Ten Commandments', what I consider to be God's Laws, are all based on one important point ... Love. The most important Law of all is, 'Love God with all your Heart, Mind, Soul and Strength'; which is obviously based on Love. 'Love' your neighbor as yourself. 'Love' your Mother (Mother Earth), and 'Love' your Father (Father-God in Heaven). No graven images (Love God only). Do not Murder (Love your neighbors and your enemies). Do not steal, do not commit adultery, do not take God's name in vain, do not covet what your neighbor possesses and honor the Sabbath Day to keep it holy. If you truly love your neighbor, you will do these things automatically without even thinking.
So, as you can see, Love is the key for all of the Ten Commandments. Now, think about this for a moment ... if you truly love your neighbors without conditions, do you really need
to tell you how to treat your neighbors? Doesn't it just stand to reason that you will treat people that you love with love and respect? When love rules a community, the honor system works. Everyone only takes what they need, and they always give more than they take. They help their neighbor without being asked and without expecting anything back in return. They do not lock anything up, because they know that their neighbors will not steal from them. Everyone treats everyone else by the 'Golden Rule', "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you". Peace on Earth.
When people have true Love in their heart, they do not want for anything. They do not feel the need to 'possess' everything they can possibly put their hands on (Materialism). They do not covet what their neighbor has, because they are satisfied with what they already have. They know in their hearts that true happiness comes from within, because that is where Creator lives (inside us). They do not need laws to tell them how to treat each other.
When Love is present, money and success are no longer important. 'Position' and 'power' are illusions that have destroyed so many. Sadly, most people will not realize this fact until after it is too late.
If people would just realize that money, power and position are meaningless, then people will stop fighting with each other to 'get ahead'. We should be helping each other, not hurting each other. Whether people realize this fact or not, we are all striving for the same goal. We are all just trying to get home to our Father. All of us are 'lost sheep' just trying to find our way.
Did you know that the only reason people fight with other people is to gain energy so that they feel better? It's true, and most people don't have a clue as to why they are attacking others. They are stealing other people's energy to make themselves feel better, but that is a topic for another day.
The only way we can reclaim our rightful place, beside Creator, is to nurture our Spirit and focus on love in all things. The more we focus all our activities on love, the more love we will create in our lives. In order for us to get back to God, we must continually love each other and ourselves. The more love we can create in our lives, the closer to Creator we will get, so eventually we can make it all the way back home.
When someone breaks man's law, what happens? He is hunted down, convicted in a court of law by his peers, and sent to jail for his crime and punishment. What happens when someone breaks one of Creator's Laws? No one cares unless one of man's laws are also broken. Sad, isn't it? What mankind should be focusing on, we are not. God's laws are much more important than man's laws. We need to change our way of thinking.
When Jesus was a boy he would help his father, Joseph, with carpentry work. One day he said in part, 'These tools remind me of the ones we handle in the workshop of the mind where things are made of thought and where we build up character ... We use the hammer to drive home the truth, and pound it in until it is a part of every part ... and then this ladder with its trinity of steps, faith, hope and love; on it we climb up to the dome of purity in life. And on the twelve-step ladder we ascend until we reach the pinnacle of that which life is spent to build - the Temple of Perfected Man.'
That, my dear friends, is the meaning of life here on earth; "to build the Temple of Perfected Man". You see, we were put on this earth to learn how to become more loving individuals. The materialistic part of this world is irrelevant. The only thing that truly matters is our Spiritual selves. That is why we are here. That is our entire reason for living, and that is the reason why we MUST learn to love each other without conditions.
Once we achieve this level of love in our lives, laws will no longer be necessary. They are only necessary when people want what they do not have. If we are all full of love and compassion, then we will want for nothing. When we know that energy is what we are missing in our lives (energy is the Love Energy of Creator), we will not need laws to tell us that we should not steal it from others. We will know how to get that energy from the universe around us. At this point laws will become obsolete.
