Issue 97: More laws

only give compassion and love, and whatever you have of wisdom, or be silent. You or she or he only is responsible, and if they want they can copy your good example. Give then that right and option.

More Laws

Another fact in the universe, the ‘third law,’ is that everyone, every creature, is unique, though one in essence (called Adi’s heart). Everything has its own characteristic nature and its own characteristic task to fulfill, which is not exactly shared with anyone else. Not even two drops of water are exactly alike. Nothing at all in the universe is exactly the same. Mathematically you know that identical triangles are congruent – theoretically they are actually the same. But even identical triangles have a different place and time, like all things that are physical by nature. No two things can exists at the same time at the same place – so are not the same. But, you may say, mathematical triangles do not physically exist. True. But they exist in your mind, and if you had not distinguished them in your mind first, you could never have called them identical or congruent. The human mind is simply unable to grasp identity, and therefore, as soon as mind is born or becomes active, it immediately makes distinctions. Only great mystics, who have gone beyond their mind, perhaps understand what identity is.

The fourth great ‘law’, like all these ‘laws’, is intricately connected (and in essence one with) the other laws. It says that everything in the universe is ordered in hierarchies. Hièros (Greek) means holy. The most holy always rules and influences the second holiest, and so down through all kingdoms of nature. The higher (- not always in social position; or in a practical work or school situation – which can be an ‘inversed’ or ‘mixed’ or ‘chaotic’ or even evil human imitation of hierarchy) always teach(es), influence(s), guide(s) the lower in nature. Lower always serves the higher in nature. Some animals serve people, but people take care of them, and teach them, consciously or unconsciously. Because being human is the future for animals. Plants serve animals and humans for food, minerals serve plants, but always the higher ones set the example for the future of all those who – by law – always strive upwards, to the future. Teachers teach pupils, but pupils can help there teachers (for example by taking them serious and being attentive and sometimes more critical), ‘God’ or gods or spiritual humans help average people, by inserting new ideas and giving out holy teachings, and setting examples of right behavior (like Buddha), or courage (like Jesus) or wisdom (like Plato) and so on, many other examples. So the ethics of it: You are always in the middle of your own eternity, never too high, never too low – just right. There is no basis for being jealous, or trying to humiliate others. You just go your own path according to your own right place in the hierarchy. Follow the example of the gods, be lovely and helpful to animals, respect all lower and higher creatures, and, intellectually, try to understand these laws and analyze the consequences for your own behavior and character building. Doing the opposite gives a lot of suffering and depression, and ultimately you can only lose against the whole universe.

Then a fifth law is evolution: everything always moves forward, upward becomes better, but runs in cycles of repetition also. As we already discussed, no two cycles are the same. But if you are running almost the same cycle as before, it is always on a somewhat more accomplished level. Evolution is just the unfolding, one by one, step by step, of your properties already inherent in the heart of Adi.

When we are sufficiently developed as humans, when we have made innumerable choices, every human being, says the sixth ‘law’ is that each of us will make a great choice. It happens when we have gained all possible knowledge and wisdom. It is a choice made on one moment, but the accumulation of numerous choices made before. Deep level choices have much more consequences that superficial or only relatively important choices. Now we are talking about the choice and the end of the path of wisdom: 1) To stand on the threshold of no more learning, no more suffering and billions of years of bliss – the greatest bliss that any human being can befall and to enter over that invisible threshold, being henceforward omniscient and all-encompassing; or 2) To stand on the threshold of no more learning, no more suffering and billions of years of bliss – the greatest bliss that any human being can befall, but not to step over the threshold, thus rejecting this greatest of rewards, because you look around and see all those who are still suffering like you yourself did for ages, those millions or billions who are confused and desperate and have lost the way, and your compassion and love is so great that you will return to them as a helper or teacher. You will postpone your own bliss for long ages and undergo all the suffering that belongs to their worlds, but be of the greatest possible benefit for all beings, first of all human beings. It is the ultimate choice for each of us. It is due to this great choice by which the noblest human beings are born, such as Adi and Praja, and Jesus and Mohammed and Buddha and Krishna, LaoTse and Quetzalcoatl and many others. You will always be a pioneer, and pioneers always evoke resistance and enmity. People may – in their ignorance and presumed self-interest, while they think they are doing the right thing – oppose you in every possible way, and even try to kill you. If you have chosen to incarnate in a physical body and in the emotional and mental atmosphere of the human world, you will naturally be confronted with all features of that. You will need the whole strength of your character, and to be prepared to sacrifice everything for yourself that other people find most important. Whatever you know and feel and is naturally clear for you, may not be understood by others, however hard you try – except a few. You may be more successful or less successful. More people will begin to understand you only long after your death, while perhaps during that incarnation you have experienced no recognition at all. It may seem vary frustrating. You may be unknown and receive no gratitude of any man or woman on earth. But in your heart you don’t care about all these things, because your only real motivating force is compassion, and do your task as best you can. You always subconsciously remember your inner standard, and no outer circumstances can kill that. You may incarnate again and again, when you choose to do so, when it is the right time to do some good work, in harmony with the cycles and larger forces of divine nature, to found new streams of culture, be a forerunning, and lonely, artist, or a pioneering scientist, noble politician, or a leading philosopher – and you may choose to live many lifetimes as a very humble person just to sow seeds of spirituality in your environment. Such great souls combining highest compassion and wisdom are exceedingly rare nowadays on earth. You may also choose not to reincarnate, but to work as a human being without a physical body. No doubt this has advantages and disadvantages. Of coarse I don’t mean as a spook, and certainly not as an ‘entity’ in a spiritualistic séance (many of which are related to spooks) but as a fully developed compassionate and wise person who can not be misguided and who can communicate with physical pupils and teach them, inspire them and, if these physical people have made themselves available for that purpose, they order them to do work that can only be done in a physical body for a greater purpose, such as prophets or incarnated bodhisattvas. If such a bodiless human being wishes, he can show himself temporarily in a visible form to selected persons, in a ‘body’ which is an illusion, but so true to reality that the physical human being doesn’t notice that it isn’t real. In this way he can walk and talk and sit in a chair and listen and even give material things which stay with the receiving person after he disappears. But because the body is just a magic illusion, he can suddenly be there, and just as suddenly disappear, just dissolve in thin air. Such compassionate people, whether incarnate or not, showing themselves or not, are exceedingly rare, but they exist and have always existed. When our present materialistic period is over, there will be more of them. You can be one of them. Anyway, you are always on the good side, the stimulating side, and therefore, if you could see the results, what you are doing is the most grateful work that is possible in this world, or in any world. This great choice is the natural and the noblest extension of the Law of laws, which is Compassion.

The seventh ‘law’ is that ultimately everything that any creature does or thinks, or decides in life by its feelings, is part of the wish to know its own heart – to know who it or (s)he really is, to gain Self-knowledge – the Heart of Adi. It is the highest thing in our universe, and, according to the above mentioned Law of hierarchies, every being unconsciously or consciously serves Adi, and Adi, also in his aspect as Praja, helps, and waits, until every living being, you and I included, has reached the threshold – our own threshold – and then everyone will ultimately pass over the threshold to experience innumerable ages of bliss – until the time has come for a next cycle of universal evolution. Those who made that unselfish choice and served humanity for ages, will then be the greatest among the gods.

When everyone understands and practices these seven teachings, the earth will become a paradise, a happy school of higher learning, where everyone will win his ultimate result.
