“Love rules through Law.” The mechanics of how you use your personal mind to discover new ideas and make them your own happens from the Mechanical (meaning; without the use of your mind) then to the Volitional (meaning: using your mind).
Let us take, for instance, the Law of Vacuum Technology. Where there is a vacuum, for instance, a bag of coffee that has had the air removed, you initially perceive the internal contents of that bag to be hard, like a piece of wood. You can take this bag of coffee and tap it on the countertop. It sounds as if you are using a mallet. Then, simply open the top of the bag of coffee and introduce AIR to the contents, and what do you get? A bag of soft coffee. Tap that soft bag of coffee on the counter, and you will have a completely different sound. But, is this not the same bag of coffee?
So, a law existed here about Vacuum Technology that you may or may not have ever seen before. In the bag of coffee, before it was opened, it had been vacuumed sealed. All of the air or space had been removed, causing the contents to be denser and APPEAR to be smaller in size; when, in fact, the coffee remained the same.
When you opened the seal of the coffee bag, air automatically entered the internal space of the bag and increased the volume of the matter inside—the coffee. If you did not know what vacuum sealed was, this seemingly solid bag of coffee turning soft within moments would be like a miracle or a trick of some sort.
Your human mind perceived space expanding, first. Then, through intrigue and the desire to comprehend the law of vacuum technology, you volitionally used your mind to make this law your own. The same concept happens with Spiritual Law.
You do not need to know the intricacies of the law of Volumetric Flow or Gas Density to see the change in the coffee. However, should you decide to understand this process and use it for yourself, you may need to begin to study Kinetic Gas Theory to help you understand the process more fully. This would help you use this concept for your own benefit.
The space between discovery and using Law is where most people STOP in their spiritual growth.
Once you discover anything new or different in the world, you can then use your will, or volition, to invite your mind to comprehend it. Of course, many levels of comprehension exist. You do not have to be a doctor of medicine to know how an antibiotic works. However, you may have to be a doctor of medicine to know what kind of antibiotic to prescribe for which disease.
With your brain and mind, you can observe and then comprehend anything new and unusual in the world. But, specifically, in terms of spiritual concepts or Laws in the universe, you must FIRST notice them—see them—experience them—to realize that they, indeed, have existence. Then, once you determine their reality, you can invite your volitional process to begin the internal search of how this Law works on your own behalf.
This is how your own mind takes and perceives a Universal Law and then uses the Truth found in the Law for your own personal use.
Once you realize you have to understand something clearly to use it, you often make the choice to let others who have dedicated their lives to studying the law do your work for you.
Alas, we use practitioners to pray for us, ministers to teach us, and doctors of spirituality to share the deeper meanings of truth. But, when you let go of your own mind and use the minds of others to pray and, more importantly, to understand and embrace Spiritual Law, you miss out on the very important process of Volition. To use a law, you cannot just perceive it, you must begin to understand how it works, as well, to effectively change your life by means of that Law.
Today, let go of the idea that the Law of Spirituality is too difficult to understand. I will make it very simple with examples and easy ways to use these laws in your life. But, you have to make a choice to let this book help you, otherwise, you will finish the book and be in the same place as you were when you began reading it.
Even more important than letting go of the thought that these principles are too difficult, you must deliberately open your mind to understanding something new. Then, it is Spirit’s responsibility to provide and create ways on your human path that you may learn these ideas and connect to them mentally and emotionally.
