Spiritual laws, physical laws, and the interplay of the two operate this simulation. In both, everything comes down to mathematical precision. Everything comes down to cause and effect.
In a self-determined consciousness, we decide yes or no (1 or 0), which determines the next cause and effect. We don’t control the laws, the outcomes or anything else. We simply choose or decide yes or no in thousands of ways. This yes or no is where our “free” will resides. (Represented by the Tree of the knowledge of Good and Evil; where we judge good and evil; yes and no) Yet, even this “choice” is bound and not “free”; for it’s influenced by the condition of our consciousness at the time of our choice.
This yes and no dynamic is the working of the self-determined consciousness, versus, a divine consciousness, which is just yes, because our choice is governed by perfection, not us. What directs our soul comes from beyond us, versus, from us. Thus, we still have “choice” in a divine consciousness, but what governs that choice changes from mere human to divine.
Because the spiritual laws govern the outcomes to our choices; if we are aware of them they can illuminate the cause and effect dynamics occurring in our lives. Understanding these laws help us to “see” our consciousness, and in contrast the divine consciousness. Through them we see how the consciousness operates, functions and expands.
These laws exist in this simulation and in eternity. The difference is in this simulated reality we can’t fulfill them, and in the eternal we can. They are fulfilled when we act in perfect divine love (not the self-generated love of the self-determined consciousness). This is why Jesus said the sum of the commandments is love (divine love). He fulfills them because he is governed by the divine consciousness, thus in perfect love. When we possess the divine consciousness as he did, thus when we are one with him, then we’ll fulfill them too.
Pursuing the commandment to love reveals our great obstacle; we can’t divinely love. We can in intention or desire, but to love in action with a perfect love is always an act done in faith, because we’ve not yet received the substance of divinity. If we had, we would be immortal. Yet this desire to want to divinely love, and doing so in faith develops a soul condition that can unite in a oneness with the divine consciousness of our Creator.
So, we can desire divine love, but our self-determined consciousness in unable to create it. It’s produced only in the working of the divine consciousness. Again, a self-determined consciousness can’t create a true love – the highest good for all – it’s not in its capabilities because it isn’t an all-knowing perfect consciousness. Yet at the same time, we desire this divine love with all our being. This desire is the desire of God, for God. It’s placed and grown in our soul by him, for him, to pull us back into him. Along the way, our soul is prepared for oneness with him. The desire for this pure love is essential. It’s our homing beacon back to him.
Any spiritual law not fulfilled creates disharmony and the absence of divine love, thus ripple effects that bring “death”. This is another reason we learn this reality is only a simulation. If it was real, God would be here, and he can only exist as he is, as God. Where he is, there is life, harmony and love because his spirit is sovereign, and nothing can overturn it – it’s impossible. This is what it means to be God. It’s impossible for this “reality” to truly exist in the realm of an all consuming, omnipresent, omniscient, and loving Creator.
As we learn about these laws, they humble us in our self-determination to realize that only a oneness with our Creator can fulfill them. We learn through them to relinquish our self-determined consciousness, and desire to be an extension of the divine consciousness. Not to push into our self-determination thinking we can self-perfect, which can be a natural reaction when we first learn of these laws. Again, a self- determined consciousness by its very nature can’t truly fulfill them; only a divine consciousness. These laws in themselves reveal that we can’t fulfill them in this consciousness, thus we can’t create harmony or divine love. However, they also reveal the divine consciousness can accomplish these outcomes. If we try to live in them perfectly, they will frustrate us to no end, thus we live in them by faith. We experience our failure that we may choose to let go of our consciousness and be absorbed and fully governed by the divine consciousness; to give up our “free” will. They reveal why we need to be a part of the divine consciousness that is all knowing, perfect in choice, function, and in expression of divine love.
Thus, we have faith, and are called to live by faith. And above all to live in this divine love in faith, because engaging this living faith is what prepares us for the substance. Faith exists because there is a state of “separation”. The fulfillment of a faith, based on divine truth and love, is oneness with the divine consciousness of our Creator, which is an end to all separation.
Jesus Christ revealed that this potential of oneness exists for us; here. And when the Spirit that is in him enters this reality to abide in us eternally, we too will fulfill this potential. Its fulfillment ends the self-determined consciousness so that there is only the divine consciousness all in all. Thus separation, the absence of love, and every element related to “death” and “darkness” ends.
Again, until then we try to remain patient in our faith as our Creator completes in us what he set out to do – to create us in his likeness.
