This particular post is a kind of trilogy of understanding that I’m recently embracing and hope to share with others. We know what Love is, is there more?
Bruce McArthur has undertaken an adventuresome book. The full title is “Your Life: Why It Is the Way It Is and What You Can Do About It – Understanding the Universal Laws” by Bruce McArthur. It’s too long of a title to have as the name of this particular post. Compared with the wisdom and insight of this book the lengthy name is inconsequential . The book is ISBN #0-87604-300-7 and is about 276 pages long.
Bruce MacArthur was an Electrical Engineer and an Executive. He pondered that state of the world and had the courage to wonder “How does it work?” He was familiar with the teachings of Jesus and understood learning the lessons of Love.
In his introduction he makes a very clear case for his questions and searching. He sought to know how the Universe works. What is the Spiritual Structure of this world? What is the bottom line?
He begins his case with the thought that God’s Laws must be Universal and unmutable (unchangeable), they must apply equally to everyone. He makes the analogy of electricity laws. He learned these laws of electricity in his youth and realized that they were so perfect he could imagine and design whole circuits with nothing but pen and paper. Upon leaving his study he could then build these circuits right every time, the first time. He knew too that these electricity laws were equally good in India, Ohio, or Sweden. The electricity laws are Universal. From these simple electrical explorations he realized that God’s Laws must be like this. In fact, he again realized that even the mere electricity laws were part and parcel of God’s Laws. Nothing is separated, nothing is isolated.
He began a more earnest journey to know these Universal Spiritual Laws and eventually found the teachings of a spiritual healer that imparted these laws sensibly.
In short, but not all, some of these Laws are:
“As you sow so shall you reap”
“Like begets Like”
“There is nothing by chance”
“As you give you gain in understanding”
“Spirit is the Life, Mind is the builder, Physical is the result”
These are but a smattering of his so-called research of the Universal Spiritual Laws. In the back of the book he lists 32 separate laws that should be applicable in one’s life. They are very good laws.
My own thoughts: electricity laws and Universal Laws share other common attributes. Like electricity laws the Universal Laws are impartial, they shock, harm or alarm exactly alike or the can build and shine a light unto the world.
Addendum: I haven’t referenced the teacher healer by name because while I give credit where credit is due I realize that Mankind desperately wants to play the “My guru is better than your guru game.” If each of us searches in the same manner that Bruce McArthur has, we can actually see more, be more and understand more.
