11 Forgotten Laws – Working the Law
This is an introductory chapter of the book, ‘Working with the Law’, and very much sets the tone for the rest of the book. The author ran a seminary and held what I would regard as an old fashioned, fundamentalist Christian viewpoint. In the preface to the book, he refers to “Law” as God working in our lives.
This viewpoint is shared by both of the presenters but it is not one that I share. I see these laws as just the natural working of the Universe and see no need to attribute them to a creator. I find this type of language a slight barrier, but I am still able to gain a lot of insights from the material. I think you should find something of value in it, whatever your beliefs.
Use your own judgment
We are advised to neither accept nor reject this information without testing it for ourselves. That is something that I can heartily agree with. I have learned elsewhere that choosing your beliefs based on what is true is not resourceful. Whatever somebody believes is true for them. They will filter out or distort evidence that contradicts what they already believe. So why let yourself be limited by ‘The Truth’. Why not choose beliefs that work for you.
The premise of this program is that we create our own lives as result of the way we think. By learning to control and improve our thinking, and working with this set of natural laws, we can create the life that we want. I think that it is well worth trying on this belief and proving for ourselves whether it works.
