Welcome back to John Kosior. Glad you're still with us. I enjoyed your post on error.
This law could also be called the law of separation. I believe that what is being conveyed in this law is one of an intelligent distribution and the separation of atoms and forms. Opposite the law of Attraction. JJ has stated that The law of Economy has also to do with repetition. I don't understand what separation and the line of least resistance has to do with repetition.
It's not so much that repetition is a core ingredient of the Law of Economy, but that the Law of Economy governs how when and where repetition is found in the universe.
For instance the Law of Economy has caused the various particles to fall in place in an efficient manner to create the atom. The separation principle causes the electrons to be separate from the nucleus.
Even though we have this separation in the atom we have a lot of repetition which follows the Law of Economy. Each electron circles the nucleus over and over for millions of years following the line of least resistance and the most efficient paths.
Inside the atom the particles spin with great repetition also following the Law of Economy. In addition the atom itself spins and wobbles repetitively.
Efficient repetition is indeed governed by this law.
DK makes this interesting statement: "A man is governed by the Law of Attraction (Love), is evolved through the Law of Economy, and is coming under the Law of Synthesis."
In other words, he tells us that we owe our evolution to the Law of Economy.
What does the Law of Economy have to do with our evolution? How can we quicken our evolution when we understand it?
What does this law have to do with time? Do we have all the time in the world or is it important that we make effective use of it?
Judging by the lack of response on this, perhaps the question was a little too heavy duty. But perhaps it is not as bad as it looks.
The point is that when we evolve we move from one point to another upon the path. And what happens to our movement when we cease moving efficiently?
What happens is that we take a detour that takes us off the path, thus becoming inefficient in our progress and not following the Law of Economy.
For instance, one of the ingredients of swift economical progression is to develop a loving and forgiving nature. But let us say that you meet someone you just cannot stand. On top of this he causes you a financial disaster and you lose almost everything you own. Suddenly a switch goes off inside and you say to hell with the loving nature and you hold a grievance and begin to take a perverse pleasure in hating the guy and would do him harm if you could.
This problem puts a hold on the development of your loving nature as well as many other ingredients of your progression.
You are no longer following the Law of Economy for you are not moving efficiently along the path. You have taken a detour and are lost for a time.
Thus we see that the choices that best move us forward along the path are those that take us from point A to point B with the minimal waste of time strongly linking this law with time. The understanding of this law will be a great aid to us in making the right decisions in life. The best decision is usually that which will move ahead our spiritual progression with the most speed and economy.
The drawback of the belief in reincarnation is that many who superficially understand it think we have all the time in the world and take their time in their progression.
When the Law of Economy is understood this will no longer be the attitude. Each cycle governing our progression only has so much time in it. If we want to move ahead with our friends and fellow students we must practice this Law of Economy and not waste time or else we will be left behind for many ages.
There are four subsidiary laws to the Law of Economy which are:
1. The Law of Vibration, dealing with the key note or measure of the matter of each plane. By knowledge of this law the material of any plane in its seven divisions can be controlled. 2. The Law of Adaptation, is the law governing the rotary movement of any atom on every plane and subplane. 3. The Law of Repulsion, governs that relationship between atoms, which results in their non-attachment and in their complete freedom from each other; it also keeps them rotating at fixed points from the globe or sphere of opposite polarity. 4. The Law of Friction, governs the heat aspect of any atom, the radiation of an atom, and the effect of that radiation on any other atom.
We shall first talk about the Law of Vibration. Here are a couple things DK said about it.
4. A gradual grasp of the law of vibration as an aspect of the basic law of building, the law of attraction, is brought about, and the initiate learns consciously to build, to manipulate thought matter for the perfecting of the plans of the Logos, to work in mental essence, and to apply the law on mental levels, and thereby affect the physical plane. Motion originates cosmically on cosmic levels, and in the microcosm the same will be seen. There is an occult hint here that, pondered on, will reveal much. At initiation, at the moment of the application of the Rod, the initiate consciously realises the meaning of the Law of Attraction in form building, and in the synthesis of the three fires. Upon his ability to retain that realisation, and himself to apply the law, will depend his power to progress. Initiation, Human and Solar, Pg 140
Question: What does the law of vibration have to do with creation, or form building?
Later, when the knowledge of occult healing is more familiar, and the laws which govern the subtle bodies are more known, physical plane science will be superseded by the preventive science of the subtler planes, that science which aims at the provision of right conditions and the building of bodies that are both self-protecting and neutral to all attack. It will he found that the comprehension of the law of vibration, and the effect of one vibration upon another vibration holds the key to the establishing of better conditions of living, and of sound bodies on all planes. Letters on Occult Meditation Pg 243
Question: What does the Law of Vibration have to do with healing and health?
