The Laws of Alice A. Bailey

Law of Laws

The Christian statement that “God is Love” is founded on that deepest, recognized, spiritual fact. The expression of this divine characteristic can be summed up in the words from The Voice of the Silence:

Compassion is no attribute.
It is the Law of Laws – eternal Harmony, Alaya’s Self;
a shoreless, universal essence,
the light of everlasting right and fitness of things,
the law of love eternal.

Law of Abstraction (8)
Law of Acceptance (1)
Law of Action and Reaction (6)
Law of Adaptation (in Time) (3)
Law of Adjustment
Law of Affinity

What Question Would You Ask God?

Anne Foerst writes in “God in the Machine: What Robots Teach Us About Humanity and God“:

“What does it mean to be human? How can humanness be defined? Can we ever come up with criteria that distinguish us from animals – or, for that matter, from robots? And what exactly is our place and our purpI Aose on this planet, in our sun system, in the universe? Are humans special, or are they just another random species on an insignificant planet?”

As computer scientists make great advances in the field of Artificial Intelligence the day looms when such questions may become crucial. No one knows when our technology will reach the point of either reproducing real intelligence, or mimicking it so accurately that even experts may have difficulty discerning the difference.

As early as 1950 Alan Turing proposed the possibility of creating a test to distinguish between human and machine intelligence. Today this is known as a Turing Test and various forms have been devised for commercial use on the Internet to try to weed out “bots,” or computer programs that attempt to imitate humans in leaving comments with thinly disguised spam to sell everything from smut to stocks.

One has to wonder if there might be a possibility of a kind of Turing Test for God.

Son of God?

Do you believe that Jesus was the one and only Son of God and that he made that claim? You may have read the following at some time:

“Then the Jews took up stones again to stone him.
Jesus answered them, Many good works have I shewed you from my Father; for which of those works do ye stone me?”

“The Jews answered him, saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God.”

“Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?”

“If he called them gods, unto whom the word of God came, and the scripture cannot be broken; Say ye of him, whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest; because I said, I am the Son of God?”

John 10:31-36 King James translation

In the original Koine (“common“) Greek of the New Testament the word “the” in the above translation of “I am the Son of God” simply does not exist. I am not an expert on the language of the New Testament, but I have consulted with some who are. They tell me that generally if a definite article (“the” in grammar) is intended it will be written, but if an indefinite article (like “a“) is intended, it would often be omitted.

Probably a more accurate translation would have been “I am a son of God.”

Hell And The Lonely Realm

“The greatest hell is to have nothing new to create. Hell is creating that which has been, over and over until boredom becomes so great that life force flatlines.

— J.J. DeweyFacebook 3/26/2017

“As the seeker unveils truth after truth he enters a lonely realm, leaving many friends behind who cannot see through his eyes. Then at that moment where he seems alone in the universe a door is open and he is engulfed by a multitude of new friends of celestial presence, invisible to carnal eyes. He never feels alone again.”

Straight and Narrow

You Are Headed for the Straight and Narrow Path If:

Chances Are You Are Headed for the Straight and Narrow Path If:

You contemplate the will of God and try to manifest it.

You look beyond obnoxious personality traits to see the Christ within others.

You are motivated by love of others above love of the material self.
