Principle 101

The Principle of Humor

Those with an obvious good sense of humor are sometimes looked down upon by religious and other authorities as non conformists that need to be set straight. On the other hand, some great spiritual teachers recognize the value of well placed wit and humor. Not the least among these is DK through Alice A. Bailey who said this:

“There are two things which every disciple must some day learn, my brother. One is to cultivate the ability to “sit light in the saddle” (to use an old proverbial injunction) and the other is to develop a sense of humour, a real (not forced) capacity to laugh at oneself and with the world. This is one of the compensations which comes to those who can succeed in working in the light upon the mental plane. When you can do this, the constant tension under which you labour will adjust itself.

Discipleship in the new Age, Vol 1, Page 414

Lucille Cedercrans had this to say:

“Achieve to that perspective which is able to see yourself lalopping and laugh. It is a sense of humor that you need as you go into this training. See yourself in all of your failings, in all of your little miseries, in all of your ridiculous positions, then laugh. You see, it is this ability to laugh and to laugh particularly at one’s self which is the healing, the cure. It is this that makes it possible for you to pick up and to go along with whatever task you are presented. If you can laugh at yourself you can keep your head up in that Wisdom, regardless of where your feet may be walking or what your astral body may be doing (how much lalopping is going on). Still, if you are able to laugh you will keep your head in the Wisdom. If your head will stay up in the Wisdom, you can reach up every now and then and take a breath of it into yourself. Then it has to rub off; it has to come down to the feet and be grounded where you walk. It meets with the earth upon which you walk.”

Applied Wisdom, Page 813

Indeed. One of the hallmarks of the worker in the light is the ability to see humor, even in difficult situations. Many of those who have not yet transitioned into light and love take themselves and life much too seriously.

Humor is a somewhat illusive quality that is difficult to define, similar to that of love. You can read every dictionary definition and still not be able to put a finger on exactly what it is.

For instance, a common definition is, “Something that is funny or makes you laugh.” Overlooked is the real question which is: exactly what is it that makes something funny? A short black and white answer will not do here as a thing that is funny in one situation may not be funny at all in another.

For instance, a guy may offer some good-natured ribbing of a teammate in a locker room that draws a big laugh, but if the same thing were said at a Jane Austin book club meeting there may be outrage instead.

So what is the illusive principle that makes us laugh? In a nutshell it is this:

Humor, or that which is funny, is created when the dialog takes an unexpected, but pleasant twist. There is an element of mild surprise and often subtle truth in those statements that make us smile or laugh.

Let us examine a couple jokes from one of my favorite comedians, Steven Wright.

“OK, so what’s the speed of dark?”

This is a play on the speed of light which was discovered after a very serious scientific investigation. It is unexpected that anyone would even consider that darkness has a speed and the fact that it makes light of a serious subject adds to the humor.

Here’s another:

“Hard work pays off in the future. Laziness pays off now.”

It is unexpected that anyone would think of being lazy as rewarding, but when you think about it there is some immediate reward to it. The unexpected but pleasant twist to thinking makes it funny. Don’t tell this joke to your boss while you are working on a deadline as he may not think it is funny.

Here’s one more example:

“I intend to live forever – so far, so good.”

Again we see humor here because of a pleasant but unexpected twist. The reader may smile and say to himself, “The guy has a point. So far so good for me too.”

Let me tell you of a time that an unexpected statement really made me laugh. At one time I was thinking of going into the insurance business and I attended a presentation given by the owner of the company. Now I expected this guy to be very serious because selling insurance was a very serious business and as he began his presentation everything was proceeding about the way I expected until the guy just stopped and brushed his hand against his nose and made this statement, “Hmmm,” he said, “I think I have a booger in my nose.” That not only made me laugh but the whole room just exploded in laughter. That was the last thing that I ever expected to come out of his mouth at that time.

Overall then here are some, but probably not all, of the ingredients of good humor.

  1. The unexpected
  2. A subtle truth isn’t always necessary, but helps.
  3. It should be a pleasant thing to hear for the receiver.
  4. It should not insult the receiver’s belief system. For instance, a joke making fun of God may be funny to an atheist group, but not to a church group.
  5. Timing. This is very important and perhaps the most difficult to learn. Sometimes a statement said at just the right time may be hilarious, but fall completely flat when the timing is off.

There are many benefits of laughter, not the least of which is one’s health.

I first became aware of the healing qualities of humor many years ago when I read about the experience of the famous writer and editor, Norman Cousins. In 1964 he was diagnosed with a terminal and painful disease called, ankylosing spondylitis. The doctors told him that he only had a few months to live.

After concluding that the orthodox treatments he was given was accomplishing nothing he decided to treat himself. He felt his disease was triggered by stress and the best anti stress medicine is laughter. He checked himself out of the hospital and sealed himself in his room and read every comedic writing and watched every funny movie he could get his hands on. When something tickled his funnybone he went with the laughter as much as possible.

Within a month he had greatly improved and his doctors were amazed and couldn’t believe that laughter had anything to do with it. Within six months he was completely cured and went back to work full time.

His story inspired a movie and stimulated significant research. Since then they have concluded that humor stimulates a number of health benefits such as”

  • It relieves stress and relaxes your whole body
  • It boosts the immune system
  • It triggers the release of endorphins causing a natural high relieving distress and pain.
  • It increases blood flow making for a healthier heart and circulation.
  • Laughter helps you live longer according to a study in Norway. It is particularly helpful for cancer victims.

In addition to health benefits there are many spiritual ones. Those without much humor in their lives tend to focus on the negative and keep their attention there so much that their mood is soured and negativity seems to fill their lives. They tend to be quite pessimistic.

Laughter shifts ones attention away from the negative and causes the consciousness to put things in perspective. Yeah, maybe you’ve had a bad day, but after a good laugh you see that, all things considered, it wasn’t so bad after all.

A good sense of humor helps the spiritual seeker stay focused on the essential of reality and avoid pitfalls such as;

  • Taking himself too seriously
  • Trying to assert too much control over other people
  • Avoiding a messiah complex
  • Being an unpleasant associate.

If he ventures into teaching a little humor goes a long way into making the presentation more interesting.

Overall, there is no downside to humor in right proportions. May we all add some of its spice to our lives.

Principle 100 – Service

This entry is part 97 of 98 in the series Principles

55

Principle 100

Service

Principle 99 was sacrifice, the keynote of the Piscean age. We are now moving on to focusing on service, the keynote of the Aquarian Age.

First, let us put into words the principle behind this word. The average person merely thinks of service as one person performing a beneficial labor for another that may or may not involve monetary payment.

This is well and good but the principle goes deeper.

The Principle that motivates service goes right back to the Source, the Life of God Itself, and was symbolically taught by the Master himself in these words: He said that God “maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same?” Matt 5:45-46

The sun is a symbol of light and life, and the rain a symbol of love and giving. Together they represent the great all-encompassing principle of service rendered to us by our Father-Mother God. We receive all that we need to make life worthwhile whether we deserve it or not by means of the greater servant – God.

Then Jesus tells us to follow this example and extend this service, not just to the ones we love, but to all.

One only truly applies the principle of service when he sees himself as a servant of the whole rather than just the part.

During the Piscean Age we placed our main attention on sacrificing for a cause with service being kind of an afterthought. The service that was emphasized was directed toward the part, the group, the brothers in arms so to speak. Now we must learn the lesson demonstrated by our Great Lord and serve both the part, but the whole.

After all is it not written:

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son…” John 3:16

And who is in the world?

All of us – the good, the bad, the ugly and the beautiful. All are loved by God and all are served by the Father of Lights.

The true servant will look for opportunities to assist and to help whether the person, group or people are deserving or not. If the part is elevated the whole is elevated.

Even though the servant needs to look at the good of the whole he must still allocate his energies wisely or else few if any will benefit. Unlike the sun we, as individuals, are unable to be of service to everyone on the planet. Instead, each of us has a circle of influence within which we are capable of serving in a beneficial way.

And when you think of it even the sun has its limitations. Yes, it is a great light for our solar system but there are over 200 billion solar systems just in the Milky Way Galaxy alone. The sun serves us with its great energy, but provides negligible heat and light for other star systems.

The efficient servant then must discover his circle of influence and concentrate his efforts there while always having the good of the whole in view. Here are some people to consider.

(1) His or her family. Our parents, our children, our brothers and sisters and extended family are all prospects for true service. Most of us have several family members in need of some kind of help.

Then too, often a certain family member will be difficult to accept or love, but we must do our best to serve them impartially without enabling them.

(2) Friends. Friends are a lot like family. There is always someone in need of help and some seem deserving and others maybe not so much. Again, seek to serve in a way that benefits, not enables.

(3) Charities, the homeless, and others in need. Their names are legion and there is plenty of opportunity to help here.

(4) Others who have a beneficial vision. Maybe you come across a person or a movement that can be of great benefit to humanity. No one can do a great work of service alone so it is sometimes wise to join forces for a good cause.

(5) Service groups, churches, associations etc. There are many groups supporting good causes that need help.

(6) Yourself. Some people of good will just stretch themselves too thin, neglect their own needs, suffer ill health and an early death, thus severely limiting ability to serve. Each of us must realize that we as individuals are a part of the whole and we must take are of our basic needs so we can have strength to be of assistance to others.

And what are the avenues available to be of service? Here are a few:

(1) Giving money. For many on the receiving end, this is all they may ask for – money. Now some have a legitimate need for money, but there are many who are only enabled if merely given some cash, especially if the situation comes up again and again.

Giving of our money is a simple act, but difficult to do when in short supply. Money is an energy and, as such, needs to be allocated wisely. The amount of waste in the distribution of money is beyond belief.

(2) The giving of time. Maybe you do not have extra money, but you do have just as much time as anyone else on the planet. There are hundreds of ways to use it in the service of others. The great part is that good deeds creates good will that causes the effect to return with interest.

(3) A special skill. You may have a skill needed by many where an hour spent in assistance mat be worth many hours of unskilled service. He who wants to be an effective servant needs to maximize his time in such usefulness.

(4) Giving praise, a moral boost, love, or maybe just a hug. Think back to a time when you were feeling down, discouraged or sorrowful and someone came along and said or did just the right thing to lift your spirits. Didn’t that seem to be worth a million dollars? Indeed, the true servant must keep an eye open for such opportunities for they will never be forgotten by the receiver.

(5) Sharing light. We all have certain degrees of understanding, light and lessons learned that others are lacking. The wise servant will seek to share when appropriate. You may save others a lot of wasted time through such sharing. This sharing can be very beneficial as long as one works with those willing to receive and does not impose himself on others.

I’ll end this book with these words of encouragement.

The Servant

If you follow the highest you know there will come a time when you will be visited by a Presence, either visible or invisible. It will come at a time that you least expect it and a time when perhaps you feel the least prepared spiritually, but it will come.

To dream and wish for the experience will only delay the happening. But if you take the highest you know and go forward in the vineyard of the Master and serve with no end in sight, in season and out of season, in good times and bad; if you serve with love in the dark of night with the same strength as in the light of day, if you continue with loving service through the fiery darts of hate, malice and betrayal and above all if it appears that even your Master and your God seem to completely ignore you as if you do not exist… Through all this you continue to serve with the highest you know. You continue even if God himself seems to be your enemy putting every obstacle possible in your path and laughing at you as you stumble and fall. You rise up and continue.

The time comes that it will not seem to matter to you any more if friends, God or the Masters approve of you or not. It matters not if you are some great chosen one or are looked upon by the Master as the least and most needy of the brethren. You will now serve for the sake of selfless love alone because the need is out there and you sense the need. When this stage is reached one of the Great Ones will take notice and speak: “Behold, the servant! He has become as one of us. Let us invite him into the circle of higher friendship, brotherhood and service.”

But even here the invitation comes not as you expected. All your expectations are shattered and soon replaced by newer ones and the groping in the dark is replaced by walking the path with vision. The reward for your selfless service is sight and as you see the path ahead your heart is filled with joy for that which you see is not what you imagined, but more than you imagined.

Principle 99 – Sacrifice

This entry is part 96 of 98 in the series Principles

08

Principle 99

Sacrifice

We’ll end this book with a look at the basic principles incorporated in the passing age of Pisces and the new age of Aquarius.

First we’ll look at the guiding principle of Pisces, which is sacrifice.

When we look back at the more than 2000 years of Pisces we see the common thread of sacrifice manifesting many times. The Keynote was set in place by Jesus with his great sacrifice on the cross.

After this many of his disciples, inspired by his example, sacrificed their lives and fortunes.

Then, after the churches obtained a foothold the people were encouraged to sacrifice e all the wealth possible to the church. Many of the great cathedrals were built during the Middle Ages by the sacrifice of the common people.

Then in the midst of the Piscean Age Islam was established which also demanded great sacrifice from followers.

Then in the political world there has always been some sort of tribute or tax of increasing size demanded of the people.

Indeed, the lesson to be learned in this passing age centers on sacrifice, but has the appropriate lesson be assimilated? To understand we must look at the principle which is this:

Sacrifice is the giving up of the lower for the higher, of things that are desirable for something better.

In other words, making a sacrifice is not a lose-lose situation. Instead it is one of lose-win with the win being greater than the loss.

There is no such thing as giving and getting nothing in return. There is always a return, but not always in kind.

As with all principles there are two ways that it can manifest: One is in reality and the other in illusion. In both situations the person is hoping for a greater benefit than the required sacrifice, but only in the first is the full benefit possible.

Here are some examples of the two sacrifices.

Sacrifice in Illusion

(1) Giving money and time to religious authorities thinking you will obtain a better spot in heaven.

(2) Supporting higher taxes thinking your money will be spent efficiently

(3) Giving your life in a suicide bombing thinking God will give you a hero’s welcome after death.

(4) Sacrificing your virgin child to the Gods so your people will have good crops.

Sacrifice in Reality

(1) Sacrificing money and time to a sound business idea that may bring real financial rewards.

(2) Giving of your time to growing a garden in the hope of getting fresh and health produce.

(3) Spending time with your kids teaching them things they will find useful throughout life.

(4) Sacrificing time and money to learn a skill that will make your life much more rewarding.

It is interesting to note that though the sacrifice in reality brings more tangible benefits the sacrifice in illusion is not a total waste. In the evolution of the soul each of us goes through the sacrifice in illusion before we obtain the wisdom to become firmly set upon sacrifice in reality.

The very act of sacrifice, even in illusion, teaches the seeker discipline that he will find very useful after his eyes are open. During this path of learning then even sacrifice for a bad cause has its benefits as it is a part of the divine school that prepares us for later rewards.

During the past 2000+ years of the Piscean Age we seemed to have been centered on the sacrifice of illusion and our main lesson has been learning what not to do.

We are finally absorbing the idea that not all that which appears to be worthy of sacrifice is beneficial as advertised. We are learning not to give of our substance to one who merely claims to be Gods representative. We are learning that some type of “service” or benefit should be returned to us – not in some distant heaven, but right here upon the earth.

Many of the churches are still caught in the Piscean mindset on sacrifice, but every day more and more people are breaking away and refusing to donate or sacrifice unless there is understanding behind it and a good seen on the horizon.

The true principle behind sacrifice is much different than dreamed of in religious philosophy.

Instead of a giving up with no thought of return it is really a payment. To understand we must look at the reason we work.

We work in order to create or obtain a thing of beauty, a product or a desired goal beneficial to the individual or group.

Sometimes that work is a strenuous effort that we would just as soon not do, but because the end goal is seen we continue. The work is thus the sacrifice, but it is a sacrifice of joy because the end is in view. If there were no desirable end true sacrifice would not be made.

True sacrifice has its beginnings in the family unit where the parents work on behalf of their children so they can have a better life than they themselves have had. In the process of this work they will also benefit themselves as well as have joy in the achievements of their children.

The ministers, teachers and gurus are constantly demanding money time and energy from their followers and only giving illusion in return. True sacrifice occurs when you give up something on one level to obtain a greater good on another level. Through corrupt sacrifice, you give up something of value to a representative of the beast and only receive false images in return.

Jesus demanded sacrifice, even unto death, but He offered the reward of real soul contact and the lifting of much negative karma for the disciples.

The authorities of the beast today want everything from us and give us nothing real in return. Sacrificing everything for nothing is a sin against all that is holy if there ever was one.

Sometimes the only benefit is the discipline that becomes a part of our character.

Now we are entering the Aquarian Age the sacrifices made in illusion must be seen for what they are and be replaced with sacrifice in reality. We must keep the good from the passing age and press forward in learning the new.

Our attention must now shift from the keynote of sacrifice to service, the key principle for the Aquarian Age.

I think that the good and the great are only separated by the willingness to sacrifice.

Principle 98, Inclusion

This entry is part 95 of 98 in the series Principles

06

Principle 98

Inclusion

We hear a lot about inclusion these days. There are a lot of spiritually minded people telling us how important it is. Then there are numerous politicians jumping on the bandwagon preaching it with the zeal of a revivalist preacher. Both groups are telling us that we are not inclusive enough that we need to open our hearts and doors and let all in who are selected as worthy by themselves.

The problem with these advocates is that they never define the principle so we have some guideline about what is the right or wrong approach.

Let us take illegal immigration, for example. An astonishing number are telling us that we should accept with open arms and take care of all who cross the border, that immigration laws should just be ignored. If we do not agree with them we risk being accused of being a racist and bigot.

So is this what is meant by inclusiveness – that we should accept all who encroach upon us no matter what the results would be?

In examining this principle the first thing we need to realize is that this and many other principles cannot be understood using a black and white approach. To be inclusive requires a degree of judgment and discernment. Obviously one needs to exclude some things in some circumstances.

Let us use the Law of Correspondences and relate immigration to a family home. For U.S. citizens the United States is our larger home, but in the microcosm the property we live in is our home also.

Now you may have a relative or friend call now and then asking if they can crash a few days. It may be an inconvenience but you accept them and figure you are being inclusive.

Now suppose an old acquaintance who you never considered a close friend shows up on your doorstep with a wife, six kids and three large dogs. Taking him in may indeed test your normally inclusive nature.

If one really wanted to be inclusive he could take in a few homeless people. The trouble is that even if one was willing he would be nervous about doing it since the homeless guy could be on drugs and dangerous.

But let us suppose that Billy Bob is one righteous dude and decides to open his home and resources to those in need. He invites three homeless people to stay with him. He is fortunate in that he chose three that were not dangerous, but he finds they do take much more advantage of his good nature than he planned. His favorite food and drink disappear very quickly.

Then a couple days later word spreads about his good nature and three more homeless show up on his doorstep with a very sad story. Billy Bob reluctantly lets them in, thinking it is good to be inclusive.

Several days later, after having his house trashed, three more show up. He is determined to be inclusive and again lets them in. Then it becomes a daily occurrence for more to show up until his house is overflowing with all kinds of strange individuals who were more concerned with getting than giving. Finally, after sustaining more grief and expense than he could handle he throws his arms up and orders all of then to leave. Several become angry and threaten him and say they are staying no matter what. Billy Bob is beside himself and decides the only thing he can do is move out and let the bunch fend for themselves.

He gets a room at the Motel 6 and waits. Within a month the home has suffered so much destruction and abuse that it was not even fit for the homeless to live in. The bunch then leaves the house and moves into a shelter that at least has running water and some food.

Was Billy Bob inclusive?

He seemed to be.

Should our nation take the Billy Bob approach with refugees and illegals?

Obviously if we do not operate with some limitations too many people in need entering the country could wind up creating much damage as happened to Billy Bob.

Did Billy Bob practice the principle of inclusion and does our country if it uses no judgment as to who may enter?

No.

So what then is the true principle and how do we practice it?

Inclusiveness is a state of mind where one sees all people as brothers and sisters and looks beyond race, religion, beauty, age, intelligence, social standing, education, wealth and all other differences to similarities in the struggle of life. The inclusive one tries to follow the Golden Rule and attempts to see himself living in the shoes of another and what his needs are.

The inclusive one asks himself this: “If I were in need, of a different race or social standing how would I desire one such as myself to treat them?”

The inclusive one will be friendly or at least civil to all people, even those who are unfriendly to him.

The inclusive one recognizes his limitations. He gives and helps the world as he is able but he includes himself as one that also has needs to be met. He meets his own needs so he can be a better stronger world servant and make his inclusiveness count.

The inclusive one uses discernment as sees the difference between:

(1) Helping and enabling

(2) Being friendly and becoming friends.

(3) Accepting people for who they are and bringing them into your life.

(4) Overlooking flaws and accepting those flaws.

(5) General inclusion and allowing your space to be invaded.

The first part of each point is a part of being inclusive, but the second is not. Inclusiveness is constructive, not destructive. When actions become destructive the principle of inclusiveness is not being applied.

The life of Jesus was a great example of true inclusiveness. He helped all classes of people to the best of his ability. But he did some excluding when good judgment required it. He picked out twelve disciples and taught them many things that were not given to the masses.

The inclusive person will try and follow this example. He will give as his circumstances will allow but will use judgment and assist those who are ready to receive and appreciate.

Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

Jesus Matt 11:28-30

The Slingshot Principle

This entry is part 94 of 98 in the series Principles

27

Principle 97

The Slingshot Principle

When NASA planned the New Horizons spacecraft to make its rendezvous with Pluto they decided they needed an assist or the trip would take an unworkable amount of time. To speed the craft on its mission they decided to first send it toward the largest planet in the solar system which is Jupiter. The plan was for it to approach Jupiter’s tremendous gravity and, as it swings by, the force of the planet’s gravity would produce a slingshot effect and speed the craft up around 9,000 extra miles per hour. This extra boost caused the spacecraft to arrive at Pluto four years earlier than would have been the case without the assist.

So, does this Slingshot Principle only apply to objects in outer space or is there a wider application that extends to us mere mortals?

Indeed it does apply to us humans. Let us use the Principle of the Law of Correspondences.

The small Spacecraft corresponds to the lone and weary pilgrim who is traveling to a far away destination of liberation. On his own through trial and error he makes some progress but often gets discouraged, feels alone, and sometimes it seems as if he is going nowhere or making little progress.

As he struggles forward, sooner or later he comes across another human who has greater gravity in certain areas than himself. This person corresponds to Jupiter.

This person has knowledge and understanding that is lacking in the pilgrim and for a time they will share the same orbit and gravity. When the sharing is complete the pilgrim will then break away on his own, not needing further assistance, and move with greater speed toward his destination.

Unlike the New Horizons spacecraft though the pilgrim has gained an added responsibility for receiving an assist. He exercises this by assisting others upon his way. Unlike inorganic spacecraft, living humans receive assistance through the Slingshot Principle and then give it back along the way. At one time they correspond to the spacecraft and at another time they become the Big Brother Jupiter helping a weary traveler to lift his spirits and speed up his journey.

Another difference is we humans have such a long journey home that we need a number of assists to enable us to complete the journey. We are assisted by one and then move on and, after assisting others with the knowledge gained, we then encounter another with even greater gravity who is able to assist us again and the cycle continues until the journey is complete.

For more on this subject go HERE to a previous principle.

I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was joy.

Rabindranath Tagore

Principle 96 – Trinity

This entry is part 93 of 98 in the series Principles

01A

Principle 96

Trinity

All creation begins with a trinity of relationships or triangles of energy. If we look at nature through the most powerful of microscopes we see triangular groupings from atoms on up through many forms that comprise the world as we know it.

The most famous Trinity is that used by the Christian religion to describe the Godhead which is said to be the Father, Son and Holy Ghost.

The description is somewhat confusing to those who just do not accept what they are told on faith. God is sometimes described as one yet three, and three, but one, one in three and three in one. Some skeptics just about tear their hair out after hearing the semantics and exclaim, “God is either one or three. He can’t be both at the same time.”

This conundrum is somewhat explained by Paul who tells us that God is not just three but one body with many parts. So one could explain the Trinity by stating that the highest part of the body of God is composed of three parts that are the ingredients of one whole.

The idea could be compared to a hamburger, which is composed of the patty, the bun and condiments. When you eat the hamburger you do not say you are eating a bun, or ketchup, or lettuce. Instead you just say you are eating the one whole item that we call a hamburger.

The three parts of the Trinity are often called aspects for they manifest the divine energy with different characteristics.

The Father aspect relates to power and this divides itself into another Trinity of Will, Power and Purpose.

The Son aspect is related to Love and this has divisions of Love, Wisdom and Understanding.

The Holy Ghost is related to light and has sub aspects of Intelligence, Knowledge and Light.

These three major aspects with their sub aspects and rays project many triangles into the universe creating all the forms and living things we see around us.

Understanding that the Trinity or triangles with different qualities is behind the principle of creation can be very useful to us mere mortals as we go about attempting to acquire success on our own levels.

If you want to start a project find two other like-minded souls who can expand your base of talent and intelligence. Creating a triangular relationship produces a base of power not available to a single individual. This Trinity must be one in purpose as they say God is or creation may not take place. If the individuals in the group are just seeking their own interest and not that of the whole then the creation will have difficulty getting off the ground.

On the other hand, if you can find three individuals, or couples, who all seek to contribute to the good of the whole and focus in their area of talent then great success can be achieved.

“For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” Matt 18:20

Once you have three people gather in oneness superhuman abilities can manifest.

Principle 95 – The Sabbath

This entry is part 92 of 98 in the series Principles

Principle 95

10

The Sabbath

Few consider that the Sabbath is a principle. Instead, many merely see it as a strict commandment from God. It is pretty simple. God rested from his work on the seventh, or Sabbath day and we should follow his example and do likewise.

This commandment was taken so seriously in ancient times by the Jews that a person was put to death if found working on the seventh day.

After Christ the Christian church changed the day of rest from the seventh day to Sunday, the first day of the week. The Jews and some Christian rejected this. The Seventh Day Adventists and a number of other sects believe it to be an item of extreme importance that we rest and worship on Saturday. We just have to get the day right or God will be angry at us.

So the question is this: Is the Sabbath just a letter-of-the-law, black and white thing, or is there some type of principle involved?

It is interesting that key scriptures revolving around the Sabbath suggest that it is not to be taken so literally as some assume. After God had worked for six days of creation it is written:

And on the seventh day God ended his work which he had made; and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had made. Genesis 2:2

Here we see that God did two things on the seventh or Sabbath day. He ended his work and then he rested. And what was the ending of his work? Just a few verses later we learn that he created man as well as the Garden of Eden. So it appears that God continued working on into the seventh day and when finally finished He finally rested.

Even Jesus acknowledged that God worked on the Sabbath:

And therefore did the Jews persecute Jesus, and sought to slay him, because he had done these things (healings) on the sabbath day. But Jesus answered them, My Father worketh hitherto, and I work. Therefore the Jews sought the more to kill him, because he not only had broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making himself equal with God. John 5:16-18

Jesus here acknowledged that he was working on the Sabbath and was just following the example set by God who also works on that day.

Paul also had problems with people being too literal and judgmental about the Sabbath:

Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days: Which are a shadow of things to come; but the body is of Christ. Col 2:16-17

So Paul had a problem with his people judging whether or not a person was righteous by how exacting they followed the Sabbath. Interestingly, he said the holy days were merely a “shadow” of things to come.

What was it a shadow of? A clue is given in the fact that Sabbath and rest are virtually identical and interchangeable in the Hebrew.

And what is the promise given to the righteous? They are promised that they will enter into the “rest” of God. The promise of rest and heaven are very similar in the scriptures.

After a period of intense labor here on the earth we will enter into a Sabbath or rest in one of the “mansions” of the spiritual worlds. Similarly, keeping the true spirit of the Sabbath while here on the earth is taking a rest and enjoying the fruit of our labors.

Is there anything more heavenly or enjoyable than finishing a difficult, but useful work and then just kicking back and savoring a time of rest and reflection?

When we do this we catch a glimpse of heaven on earth.

The principle of the Sabbath is this.

We labor for six cycles and rest and reflect on the seventh. If the work needs a little fine tuning we can finish our work and fine tune it during a part of the seventh.

Is a Sabbath suppose to occupy just one seventh of our time?

Not necessarily, if we correspond it to Genesis. Notice that the six days of labor had a set beginning and an end. Each one had a morning and evening attached to it. Not so on the Sabbath. No morning and evening were mentioned which is to say that there is no specific beginning and end as there is to work. When entering into the true Sabbath the seeker takes whatever time he needs to rejuvenate, rest and prepare for the next cycle of endeavor.

Each of us knows internally when a time of rest is needed and sometimes, as they say, a change is a rest. If we tune into the rest that we need and take it when possible we will all live healthier and happier lives as well as living the true spirit of the Sabbath.
