Everything Comes Within First, By Law

Walls and division create lack in our lives, but learning to accept others and be grateful creates the good you seek.

Inherently, we enjoy creative powers far beyond what we tend to realize or develop. And our creative powers work perfectly, by law.

One of my complaints about Christians (although I am one) is that we tend to think in an ‘us versus them’ pattern. This assumption keeps Christians in lack, due to a viewpoint that God separates us into ‘good and bad’, ‘righteous and unrighteous,’ even ‘saved and unsaved.’ Did I just hear the sound of air being sucked out of a room?

This ‘us versus them’ perspective subtly, and not so subtly, causes division and walls and thus, lack. It hinders our ability to cooperate with God’s universal laws that govern success and everything else.

What do I mean?

First of all, I love and respect my fellow Christians, but I also love and respect those with differing faiths and beliefs. I’m training myself not to see ‘rich and poor’, ‘black or white’, ‘gay or straight’, ‘Muslim, Jew, Christian or atheist.’ It takes practice. It’s not always easy, mind you, because of how we’ve been trained to interact, but this perspective better resonates with LOVE.

Ancient scriptural wisdom says, "But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well." – Mat 6:33 NIV

Please understand, Christians, and all humans by design, are not seeking an outside kingdom, for the kingdom of God is within (Luke 17:21). I’ll say again: Inherently, we enjoy creative powers far beyond what we realize or develop. And our creative powers work perfectly, by law.

To create by design, instead of by default, we must learn to control our thinking (within) instead of letting outside ‘facts’ and events influence us through our physical senses. This takes practice until we reset our existing paradigm or belief system.

And the righteousness we seek is not ‘right standing’ with God because we’ve been given that freely. It’s already ours to accept and believe.

The ‘righteousness’ we seek is to be ‘in right standing with’ or to cooperate with spiritual laws regardless of your faith. Understand, everything comes to us by Law.

This can be devastating when we realize the negative things in our lives are there largely because we’ve draw them to ourselves by errant thinking. Ignorant of God’s universal laws, we violate them left and right. Nevertheless, these law remain constant and work the same for everybody, just like gravity.

You are creating your level of success in every area of your life right now. Effortlessly…that’s why we’re fooled into thinking ‘circumstances just happen’. But they don’t; cause and effect exists. Many times, the effects we see were from causes we couldn’t see, but still the law remains universally applied the same for everyone.

Let's look at gravity. You can cooperate with this physical law and it assists you by keeping you from floating off into space. Or, you can get too close to a ledge and be injured or killed. You don’t need to understand that gravity works; it works regardless. It doesn’t matter if you intentionally jump or ignorantly fall. That’s why it’s law and universally applied the same for everyone, everywhere.

By the same token, when you become aware of universal, spiritual laws working in your life, you can begin to use them to benefit and bless you. Laws don’t care about the color of skin that covers you, your sexual gender or preference, or if you were born underprivileged. Unlike man’s laws, universal laws are just and blind. They cannot be broken; they can only be proved.

God is not sitting on a literal throne in heaven deciding which prayers to answer, WE control what we’ll receive, based on what we plant and how/what we believe.

When you do things according to law, good things flow. When you do things in ignorance of the law, negative consequences come, often sooner rather than later.

This is radical thinking if you are new to the concept of universal laws, but universal laws are your golden ticket! Once you learn to work within the law, you can have anything you want. You can live an abundant life without the stress of trying to manipulate the system or competing to be top dog.

If you’re into Biblical scripture, this is for you:

The blessing of the Lord makes one rich, and He adds no sorrow with it. -- Proverbs 10:22 NKJV

One final thought: Just as EVERYTHING works and comes by Law, everything we want (or don’t want) first comes from within.

Check your attitude. Are grateful? When you choose to be grateful for everything, you keep yourself positive and love-focused, attracting to yourself more positive circumstances.

Are you worrying and thinking about things you don’t want? Ding, ding, ding…the Law will serve you more things you don’t want!

We must learn to be aware of our thoughts and feelings to proactively chose thoughts that serve us.
