Anything outside The Law, independent of THE ALL would plunge the Universe into chaotic disorder and lawlessness. The word ‘chance’ is derived from a word meaning “to fall”, as in the fall of the dice. The position of the die in the box, the amount of muscular energy expended in the throw, the condition of the table, etc, etc, all are ‘Causes’.
The “Law of Averages” comes under the Law of Cause and Effect. There is always a ’cause’ and ‘because’ to every event. Nothing ever happens without a cause, or rather, a chain of causes.
No thing ever causes or creates another thing. Cause and Effect deals merely with events. No event creates another event, but is merely a preceding link in the great orderly chain of events flowing from the creative energy of THE ALL.
“There is no great; there is no small; in the mind that causeth all.”
Every thought we think, every act we perform, has its direct and indirect results which fit into the great chain of Cause and Effect.
Free Will, or Determinism?
Neither side of controversy is entirely right ~ in fact, both sides are partially right. Principle of Polarity shows that both are but half truths ~ the opposing poles of Truth.
A man may be both Free and yet Bound by Necessity.
“The further the creation is from the center, the more it is bound; the nearer the center, the nearer it is to being Free.” (I visualize a tornado and the chaos and destruction it causes, yet in the ‘eye of the storm’ is perfect calm and peace).
Can you change your pleases and wants at will? Can you Will to Will instead of to Will because some feeling, mood, emotion or environmental suggestion arouses a tendency or desire within you?
The majority of people are carried along like the falling stone, obedient to environment, outside influences and internal moods, desires, etc., not to speak of the desires and wills of others stronger than themselves, heredity, environment and suggestion, carrying them along without resistance on their part, or the exercise of Will.
Rise above the plane of material life! Dominate you mood, character and qualities of polarity. Become movers in the game instead of pawns, causes instead of effects.
Serve on the higher plane, rule on the material plane. Everything is governed by Universal Law.
Man may use Laws to overcome laws, the higher will always prevail against the lower.
In order to transmute emotions such as anger or fear … consciously choose joy and courage. Be a mover, not a pawn.
The word ‘gender’ is derived from the Latin root meaning to beget; to pro-create; to generate; to create; to produce. The word ‘gender’ has a much broader and more general meaning than the term ‘sex’ which refers to the physical distinctions between male and female living things. The office of gender is solely that of creating, producing, generating, etc.
The public mind has formed an entirely erroneous impression regarding the qualities of the so-called Negative Pole of Matter. The term positive and negative are very wrongly applied. The word positive means something real and strong as compared with a negative unreality or weakness.
The Negative Pole is really the pole in and by which the generation or production of new forms and energies is manifested. There is nothing negative about it.
The word “Cathode” comes from the Greek root meaning descent; the path of generation, etc. The Cathode or Negative Pole is the Mother Principle of electrical phenomena, and of the finest forms of Matter as yet known to science.
~ Excerpts from The Kybalion
Could it be that there is indeed something separate from THE ALL? It appears that perhaps there is, for by explanation of this possibility, it would plunge the Universe into chaotic disorder and lawlessness. Is this not what the majority of the world is experiencing now?
What is this something separate? By what name does this thing go? Are humans thoughts actually their own? Are their actions that of Free Will, or are they determined by this ‘separated’ force?
“The further the creation is from the center, the more it is bound; the nearer the center, the nearer it is to being Free.” How far off center has humanity actually gotten? Is there a way to get back to it, to realign with the central form of THE ALL and therefore become free once more?
How many people are interested in transmuting the lower energies, by way of the higher? Is there anyone willing to learn, to practice? Or are people simply comfortable having their emotions triggered and manipulated by those who desire chaos? Someone asked me once, “Why would we want to take that on, rather than send it out and away?” The answer is clear … the damaging energies sent away are never changed, and are free to return, doubling the efforts previously applied. Transmutation is the only way out of this chaotic mess we swim in.
This shift starts by transmuting ones own personal thoughts and moods. If one feels fear, they ought to consciously choose to be courageous. If one feels anger, they must choose to feel peace. If one is depressed, they must consciously choose happiness. The mind is a powerful tool, and every single person has this tool at their disposal. They can choose to master the tool, or be mastered by it. Power resides in choice, and choice over how one forms personal thought processes can never be taken, only relinquished.
To engender, to create an inner world which is chosen, rather than imbued by others, is the perfect way to lay claim to ones Sovereignty. It is the first step to gaining freedom in a highly controlled world.
Trained habits of thought and action, especially if harmful to self or others, are meant to be broken. Shed the molding received from years past, and rebuild your you from the ground up. Choose who you will be, in alignment with the world you wish to see formulated, and the honor which dwells within you. Claim your power.
