“The problem is not that we are afraid
It is that we honour fear above the Law.
If we choose to live in harmony with God’s Loving Laws,
all fear and painful emotion will naturally be released from us
Integrity to God’s Law is the key to complete emotional healing.
Heartfelt desire to live by God’s Laws and to honour them for the loving framework they provide is the only way to a continually growing relationship with God.”
Jesus, March 2013
Here’s the Truth: while I profess to know a lot about God’s Laws and to love them. Too often when confronted with fear, I choose to disregard the Law and avoid what frightens me.
For a long time fear has tricked me into believing that Safety + Comfort = Love.
And the problem with living by fear’s definitions of ‘safety’ and ‘comfort’ is that over time these states I’ve aimed for don’t feel so safe or comfortable.
So over the past few months, I’ve experimented with simply living by the Law.
Here’s some things I’ve experienced as truth as a result:
-The choice to honour law is an emotional one. Once the emotional choice is made it guides action. This works far more easily than trying to control all actions, it also leads to further emotional release and realisations.
For every negative consequence for breaking one of God’s Laws there is a corresponding gift for living in harmony with it.
This is like the best bonus in the Universe! I feel so incredibly supported when I ‘(wo)man up’ and live by the Law.
– Unless I have integrity to God’s Laws I’ll never release fear
(i.e. unless I’m firm for love and truth in every situation, when fear is triggered I’ll make an excuse and sacrifice something, so I don’t feel so petrified)
Here’s a practical exercise I completed a few months ago that really helped me evaluate what a pervasive issue the sacrificing of God’s Laws was in my life.
I wrote the following question and headings in my journal:
Q. What would my life look like if I honoured what I already knew or believed about each Law everyday?
Law of Free Will
Law of Desire
Law of Cause & Effect
Without sharing all my answers, basically there were many ways that I could see that I was not living in harmony with these Laws or Principles.
I recommend this kind of exercise to both deepen self-reflection but also to assist with understanding what these Laws and Principles actually entail. Often doing this kind of work helps a person to see how little they really understand about the operation of the Law or how to apply the Principle to their personal situation. This can then trigger further questioning and learning.
Note from Mary: I was cleaning up my blog and found this old post written in 2013 ! I don’t know why I didn’t ever post it but here it is for you today.
For more information about God’s Principles and Laws, Jesus and I have now presented an entire Assistance Group which provides an introduction to the topic.
