The Principles I have listed here at this site were given to me by Spirit for my protection. I have said before that I hear voices, some high, some low, and I cannot always tell the difference. The principles allow me to progress through life without being swayed by the low ones into acting in ways that I would later regret. You would think that the Mosaic Decalogue or 10 commandments would do that, but they are actually a skeleton of a much larger system, and one needs to know the entire system for them to work at keeping one out of trouble.
It is difficult to know how to describe the principles as compared to the commandments, though, perhaps they are the cells that make up the bones and muscles of the body of information that one needs in order to serve the highest and best. Take, for instance, the first Principle that I have listed above. Compare it to Moshe’s first command. The Principle tells you that God is Love, therefore, Moshe’s command to love Hashem with all your heart, and every breath you breathe is not difficult, it is a delight, for you know that you are loved first, and loving back is seldom difficult.
You also begin to understand that the breeze flowing though the trees, and the sound of the crickets in the grass or the animals on the plains, are themselves the sounds of Creator’s love coming toward you from the woods and the grasses. It is as you realize this that you begin to understand that Hashem is not “Out there” looking at you from afar, but right here with you, loving you with every puff of breath that keeps you alive.
Because of the gentleness of the breezes, you begin to realize that, though there is much in the Universe that is too great to understand for a human, and the winds blow much too harshly during a hurricane for a human to stand in the way, there are breezes that nourish as well. There is music in the Universe that is gentle enough for a human to survive and thrive if we will learn to get out of the way when the big winds blow.
If we will begin to pay attention, we can also learn here that the source of our own lives is the source of all life, and that there is much in the Universe that has nothing to do with us. I know this means becoming aware that the entire Universe is not about us, necessarily, but about life in abundance and that, rather than our mission being to “take over” the Universe from Hashem, as we have for generations thought and acted, perhaps our mission is to learn to live in balance with the other life forms that Creator has made and placed here.
Perhaps, in fact, we have been singing the wrong song, what if we were supposed to be singing a song of love, and we have been singing a song of conquest?
