The Laws of Wellness: Keys to Understanding Your Chances for a Healthy Life

Introduction: A Multitude of Laws

Most educated people have heard of God’s laws (contentious, confusing, conflicting and confounding), the law of Gravity, the law of Thermodynamics, the law of the Land, Parkinson’s law, Murphy’s law and so on. Most are named after the author of a succinct observation described by the law. Laws range from A (i.e., Aitken’s law – describes how vowel length is conditioned by environment) to Z (Zipf’s law – a linguistic observation that a few words are used often but most are used rarely).

As the wellness field grows and evolves, perhaps it’s time for a REAL wellness law-or many such laws. If so, why not associate as many as possible with one’s own name?

Grandiose, perhaps, but if I don’t do it, someone else surely will and that person just might make a mess of it. Wellness in corporate America and elsewhere in the world is described and presented in wildly inappropriate and dysfunctional ways; why not eradicate the babble with a few transformative REAL wellness laws? Such laws, if they make sense and lead humanity to sounder thinking, might well contribute modestly to improved health and life outcomes.

By the way, one does not have to formulate a law that is named in his/her honor or even be aware of a law to be affected by and to live in accordance with it. We have all complied with Galileo and Newton’s laws about gravity, well before we became aware of them.

Anyone who wants a law to bear his or her name should present some credentials. Mine are modest, simple but adequate for the honor. As of this writing, I have written 15 books, posted well over a thousand essays at Seekwellness.com/wellness, 74 eight to twelve-page hard copy wellness reports commencing in 1984, 657 weekly electronic REAL wellness newsletters, at least a thousand lecture presentations in a dozen countries while spending 43 years (since 1970) dreaming about the ways to and chances of vastly improved environments and cultures for greater health and happiness.

All of which has led to this moment-the time when I offer the universe Ardell’s two laws of REAL wellness.

Ardell’s 1st Law of REAL Wellness: Random Chance, Natural Selection and Contingencies Trump All Else

Life’s largest events often follow random, seemingly inconsequential small actions of which we remain unaware.

Secular rational freethinkers place stock in knowledge, commitment, reason and persistence in shaping and fine-tuning lifestyle habits. We embrace perspectives and behaviors on matters existential and otherwise designed to render positive states of enjoyment and well-being. We consciously seek happiness, freedom, physical fitness, love, mutually satisfying relationships and multiple skills. What matters most, what affects our successes and outcomes, appears more or less to be under our field of control. Alas, this functional and preferred way of thinking is largely illusory. There are three far more consequential realities not under your influence in any way. Furthermore, these three factors render the quality and duration of your existence unpredictable and unknowable. They are: 1) random chance or fortune; 2) natural selection; and 3) contingencies.

Ardell’s 2nd Law of REAL Wellness: Relative to Ardell’s 1st Law of REAL wellness, other REAL wellness laws don’t amount to much.

Considering the immense black hole power of the first law, additional such laws play a modest role in efforts to shape life quality and longevity.

But, that does not obviate the case for added laws of REAL wellness. The fact is that most of the eponymous laws on the books are useless to most people but are yet of interest and even helpful for a few. I’m in my eighth decade; I’m not aware of any occasion when I would have benefited from an awareness of Aitken’s law or Zipf’s law. I heard of neither until I began the research for this essay. Ditto tons of other laws.

Relative to the 1st law above, this law and those that follow do not amount to much. Nevertheless, I hereby offer a few more, just the same. They can’t hurt.

Ardell’s 3rd Law of REAL Wellness: Finding your passion is fine but keep going-become great at it.

Since few of us enjoy royal lineage or handsome trusts that assure first-class travel in life with little or no need for labor, we must choose trades of sorts to pay our way through life. Thus, we are wise to adopt a long-term goal of studying and laboring at a trade that will prove enjoyable and satisfying, as well as properly remunerative.

When this challenge is met, your way of earning a living won’t seem like work.

Thus the 3rd law – master a passion. Start by following varied interests and, after years and years if not decades of trial and error, settle into one of them, immersing yourself in it.

Be somewhat realistic but guard against premature realism-while not everyone can get elected, be in the movies or play in the NBA or NFL, a select few can. Focus on what excites talents and gifts. Put in the time required to qualify for Carnegie Hall (i.e., practice, practice, practice-take account of Malcolm Gladwell’s 10,000 hours rule).

The goal here is that at some point in your career somebody, somewhere, for some good or strange reason, will pay you to do what you enjoy doing-because you are so spectacular at whatever it is you have honed to a level of artful mastery.

Robert Frost expressed the idea of this law in his poem “Two Tramps in Mud Time:”

My goal in life is to unite my vocation
with my avocation.
As my two eyes make one in sight.
For only where love and need are one
And work is play for mortal stakes
Is the deed ever really done
For heaven’s and future’s sake.

Ardell’s 4th Law of REAL Wellness: Better to chase after fun than to flee from pain.

Forget an ounce of prevention. That may indeed be worth a pound of cure, but even a grain of REAL wellness is worth a ton of prevention. Prevention is so old school-it’s vintage medical thinking focused upon avoiding negative outcomes. Furthermore, there is no fun in working so as not to experience a negative outcome.

Instead of preventing something, pursue positive results via proactive initiatives that amuse and satisfy. REAL wellness initiatives guided by reason, exuberance, athleticism and liberty are more likely to be exciting and enjoyable. Such efforts will reinforce good intentions far more than waiting around for negative states not to occur thanks to preventive strategies!

Naturally, SOME prevention is good. Birth control prevention is good, disease prevention is good-you get the idea.

Ardell’s 5th Law of REAL Wellness: Scrutinize the role you played in any scene, good or bad, and make adjustments.

Make personal responsibility your default setting. Yes, initially it is easier, cheaper and more convenient to blame, excuse, deny and/or ignore responsibility than to embrace it. Such are the current default settings in most cultures, including our own. In the long if not medium range, however, it is healthier, more satisfying and more effective to assume at least some degree of responsibility. This approach allows you to make adjustments independent of actions by others. Your own actions are the surest steps to supporting your interests.

Ardell’s 6th Law of REAL Wellness: Dead, bloated rhino equivalents are the staff of life.

All aspects of REAL wellness are not likely to be equally important for everyone. We’re all quite different in so many ways, though we are alike in many ways, as well. But, our circumstances, resources, capacities and the like vary significantly. Among the most important elements for enjoying life must be the experience of plentiful DBRU equivalents, an active interest in and life-long openness to new meanings and a commitment to and maintenance of a remarkably fit body.

Therefore, in addition to mastering an understanding and acceptance of the reality of Ardell’s 1st Law of REAL Wellness, make a point of always trying to look on the bright side of life. If the latter seems difficult, take comfort from the words expressed by the mother of Woody Allen’s character in Annie Hall. Having just read that the universe is expanding, Allen’s character laments that he’s too worried to do his homework. “Someday it will break apart and that will be the end of everything.”

“But,” his Mother snaps, “you’re here in Brooklyn! Brooklyn is not expanding.”

Parting Thoughts

Wherever you are, whether it’s expanding or not, don’t worry about it. You don’t have enough time left to waste energy on such trivia as an expanding universe-or much of anything else. Get on with your life, focus on the bright side of life, find ways to have some fun and bring back to conscious awareness my 1st Law of REAL wellness. All will turn out for the best if random chance smiles upon you, if the natural selection processes that led to your creation turn out to be fortuitous and if the contingencies that got you where you are and those straight ahead turn out in your favor.

Consider Robert Green Ingersoll’s response to a reporter’s question in 1898:

No one should fail to pick up every jewel
of joy that can be found in his path.

Everyone should be as happy as he can,
provided he is not happy at the expense
of another, and no person rightly constituted
can be happy at the expense of another.

So let us get all the good we can between
the cradle and the grave; all that we can of
the truly dramatic; all that we can of music;
all that we can out of art; all that we can of
enjoyment; and if, when death comes, that
is the end, we have at least made the best
of this life; and if there be another life, let us
make the best of that.

Maybe that answer should be dubbed Ingersoll’s 1st Law of REAL wellness.

Was It Only The ‘Ceremonial Law’ That Was Nailed to The Cross?

Right, what is this supposed ‘Ceremonial Law’? Is it Scriptural or is it hu-man made? Was there a ‘Temporary Law’ that some also mysteriously claim? Did this law exist as a separate entity or as a sub-division of The Whole Law in Old Covenant times? Did Moses deliver a two stage version of The Whole Law? Has this alleged ‘Ceremonial Law’ been deliberately conjured up the Judaising theologians of the later centuries in order to confuse and deceive True Believers and followers of The Way? The Way, being that of simply and Graciously following Yashua Anointed as our Friend, Elder Brother and Saviour i.e. putting our total trust and faith in Him for everything?

OK, so let’s check this idea out to see if it holds any water. My guess is that it won’t, but let’s take a look-see to make sure, so that we can tell these evil people where they can go. That’s politely, of course, otherwise they will quickly accuse us of not displaying the Fruits of The Spirit. ROFL. Never mind that they do not have any of that Spirit anyway, but there you go. Life is full of many weird and ‘wonderful’ surprises, is it not?

2 Chron 33:8 (KJV) Neither will I any more remove the foot of Israel from out of the land which I have appointed for your fathers; so that they will take heed to do all that I have Commanded them, according to The Whole Law and the statutes and the ordinances by the hand of Moses. (All Emphasis mine)

There we are folks, THE WHOLE LAW, The Statutes and The Ordinances by The Hand of Moses and Commanded by The Lord – The Commandments. Here, too, are The Holy Scriptures that prove The Whole Law was written down by Moses:

Exodus 24:12 (KJV) And the LORD said unto Moses, Come up to me into the mount, and be there: and I will give thee tables of stone, and a law, and commandments which I have written; that thou mayest teach them.

Exodus 34:28 (KJV) And he was there with The LORD forty days and forty nights; he did neither eat bread, nor drink water. And he wrote upon the tables the words of The (OLD) Covenant, The Ten commandments. (Brackets mine)

There it is, people, it cannot be simpler than that and with no ambiguity, and ALL written down by Moses, so we already know that there is no such thing as a separate ‘Ceremonial Law’ other than in the minds of wretched and evil 21st century Pharisees who pose and feign at being followers of Yashua Anointed and paying mealy mouthed lip service to His Grace.

Now the next point we must clarify is this: Does The Whole Law include The Ten Commandments? Or, perhaps, we could make it a more stupid question: Could someone separate The Ten Commandments from The Whole Law and thereby still call it The Whole Law? I tell you, folks, there are many ‘geniuses’ out there that think that they can. Not only that, but there are some who are so ‘clever’ that they conjure up this non-Scriptural new name i.e. the ‘Ceremonial Law’ (as you would) and deduct that from The Whole Law. By doing this, they erroneously think, they can leave The Ten Commandments in the clear, carry them forward into The New Covenant era, and then make them binding on those Born of God (Born Again) with the indwelling of The Holy Spirit. This means putting them back into bondage and condemnation of The Law. How sneaky-evil and snake-in-the-grass is that? Well they are The Devil’s own, so should we expect anything else?

Moreover, if we search for the words ‘Ceremonial Law’ just like the words ‘Holy Trinity’ and ‘Rapture’, in The KJV of The Bible, we will not find them written there. Furthermore, they also try another trick by calling this imaginary and non-existent ‘Ceremonial Law’, the ‘Temporary Law’, also not Scriptural. All this, as opposed to their imaginary permanent, and now separated, Ten Commandment Law.

So what does this amount to? Quite simply, it all points to the grubby handiwork of certain satanic creatures looking to undermine Yashua Anointed’s Glorious Grace with their evil scheme of “The Whole Law” now stripped of the non-existent ‘Ceremonial Law’ (it supposedly nailed to the cross) leaving The Ten Commandments alone and still in force. Clever eh? Well not clever enough for a Spirit led Messenger and follower of Yashua Anointed, that’s for sure.

Now is this ‘Ceremonial Law’ idea a new thing? No way, it’s been going on for centuries. The best, recent, examples of it were the early Protestant Reformation people in England e.g. The Puritans under Oliver Cromwell who attempted to literally force people to live the Ten Commandment ‘Christian Life’. This even included attempted enforcement via Parliamentary legislation which, as we know, turned into a complete disaster. The lost and unsaved people of England were having none of that and soon were clamouring for the return of a dissolute monarch from exile in France in the shape of Charles (Stuart) II with all his whores, mistresses and concubines. Similar experiments were attempted in the American colonies with the same disastrous results. It’s a solid gold nugget of Truth folks i.e. no one can be forced by The Law to be a follower of Yashua Anointed. It don’t work like that and can NEVER work like that.

Moving on from my slight digression, Yashua Anointed, through Paul, then helps us with this verse of Holy Scripture:

Galatians 5:3 (KJV) For I testify again to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do The Whole Law.

Now let’s think about this verse. What is Paul really saying here? Is Paul saying that obedience, as a debtor, to do The Whole Law it MUST include circumcision? Yes, of course he is, because circumcision is a crucial and integral part of being obedient to The Whole Law. Look, fellas, you’re either heart circumcised of The Holy Spirit or you’re penis circumcised of The Whole Law. Are you of The Holy Spirit or are you of obedience to The Whole Law, making you condemned and bound in your own living flesh?

If we then throw the Gentile equation into the mix, are they bound by the physical circumcision of The Whole Law or, if called by The Father to His Son, do they become solely circumcised Spiritually in their hearts? This is not rocket science people and we need to get these foundational Grace Truths deep seated in our hearts and minds or we’ll forever be corks tossed around on the ocean waves.

Speaking of tossed corks, we now have James telling us in no uncertain terms where we should be standing i.e. under Yashua Anointed’s Glorious Grace:

James 2:10 (KJV) For whosoever shall keep The Whole Law, and yet offend in one point, he is guilty of all.

Now I want all of you Whole Law breakers out there to tell me how you’re going meet ALL the requirements of The Whole Law, which will include physical circumcision, sunset Friday to sunset Saturday Sabbath keeping, animal sacrifices, the dietary laws and the non-wearing of mixed cloths, to name but a few, and not remain guilty of breaking The Whole Law? I will now remind all those self-righteous ‘salvation by works’ Whole Law Keepers out there of what Paul said to the Colossians:

Col 2:14 (KJV) Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross.

Notice the word ‘ordinances’ and from the Greek MSS we get:

G1378 – dogma – dog’-mah – from the base of G1380; A LAW (civil, ceremonial or ecclesiastical): – decree, ordinance.

How appropriate is that for all those dogs of The WHOLE Law? DOG-ma!! From which we get our English word ‘dogmatic’ which means, and I quote from The Free Dictionary: “Characterized by an authoritative, arrogant assertion of unproven or unprovable principles”.

There we have it, folks, a very succinct summation of everything the Cainite-Judeo-Christian Religion, in all its guises, is based upon – unproven and unprovable principles!! In other words they make it up as they go – just ask old Papa, he’ll tell you.

Can I Really Use the Universal Laws to Create the Life of My Dreams?

Universal laws or cosmic laws are the underpinnings of reality. Without them, reality as we know it would not exist. Universal law gives order to the universe. It is not necessary to be aware of these laws for them to affect you. Universal laws are always operating in the back drop of the physical universe with or without our knowledge.

Many metaphysical authors and professionals make a distinction between natural law and spiritual law. Natural laws are the forces identified by scientists as having a direct and verifiable effect on the physical world. A perfect example of natural law is gravity. Spiritual laws include the principles of attraction, abundance, and growth. These laws have not been validated by the scientific community, and so they remain in the realm of metaphysics. I use the term “universal law” to include both natural law and spiritual laws.

Universal laws are the forces enacted by the Creator to allow humans to experience physical reality. Physical reality is the environment where humans experience ‘life’. I sometimes refer to life as the ‘human experiment’. I believe the purpose of life is to create tests and challenges designed to improve our character, and grow in spirit. Some people refer to these experiments as ‘missions’. We carry out our missions through the roles we assume. Roles are analogous to the many ‘hats we wear’ in our relationships. People form relationships for many reasons. Some of these relationships include marriage, employment, social groups, religious organizations, and whole societies.

One of the easiest physical laws to observe is gravity. We can all appreciate that gravity keeps our feet planted to the ground. There was a time when gravity was not officially recognized by name. Yet humans have always been aware of its effect on them.

There are natural consequences for ignoring or violating universal law. If you jump out of a plane without a parachute, the law of gravity will ensure that you will make contact the Earth. I assure you it will not be a pleasant experience. Everyone understands this result without even being told. Only cartoon characters walk away intact from stunts like that.

Universal law works much the same as societal law. In the United States, we drive on the right side of the road. Everyone who is granted a driver’s license is expected to observe this rule. It’s for our safety that we all agree to this. If we drive on the left side of the road, someone is bound to get injured.

My understanding is that, at one time, the universal law was known only to a relatively small number of people. My sense is that these laws were withheld from society because it was thought that they would misuse it for personal gain. Conspiracy theorists contend that certain elitist groups kept this metaphysical knowledge hidden in order to retain power over the people. I am unable validate this statement. In any case, metaphysics came into the main stream decades ago and is now available to the general population.

I can see the true purpose of universal law is largely misunderstood. There are misguided individuals (who often assume the ambiguous title of life coach) selling books and programs encouraging people to seek fame and fortune by manipulating the Law of Attraction. It’s certainly possible to make your dreams come to life with a little instruction. There’s a quaint saying that should be considered before exploiting universal law for personal gain: “Be careful what you wish for.” It’s a mistake to believe you can use the universal laws for self-indulgence and hedonistic pursuits. It’s true; we can use them for that purpose, but there are consequences in doing so.

Misuse of the certain universal laws such as the principle of attraction can lead to a miserable existence. Again, the universal laws were designed to support the life of the planet and the enactment of the human experience. People often ask for what they believe they want and not necessarily what is good for them. This strategy typically ends in regret and unhappiness.

Also, when a knowledgeable “professional life coach” speaks about the Law of Abundance, this person is not referring to the accumulation of fabulous wealth and material possessions. This principle is grossly misunderstood and exploited by those who possess only a limited understanding of universal law.

The Law of Abundance is one of the more misinterpreted universal laws. The saying: “He who dies with the most toys wins” flies in the face of the true meaning of this principle. A correct understanding of abundance should give us contentment rather than an insatiable appetite to consume everything we lay our eyes on. Any urge that mindlessly drives us to accumulate riches does not come from a sense of abundance, but rather from a state of deprivation.

Another universal law that I have spoken about in past articles is the Law of Growth. I believe that I was in error in saying that the purpose of organic life forms is endless growth. Unrestrained reproduction is dangerous to life on a planet with limited space and resources. When I speak about the Law of Growth, I am referring to consciousness. Perhaps I should retitle this metaphysical principle the Law of Expanding Consciousness. Consciousness is not limited to the confines of physical space.

A person should educate himself/herself in the operation of the universal law in order to achieve a positive outcome. I recommend using universal laws for self-improvement. This means conducting an inner self-exploration to identify negative emotions and limited beliefs that may be blocking your path to personal fulfillment.

It often helps to have a knowledgeable person guide you in learning the proper use of universal law. Many people choose to hire a “life coach” to assist them. How do you find a qualified professional life coach? First, not all people claiming the title “life coach” instruct people in how to use of universal law constructively. There are no licensing requirements for this profession. There are hundreds of life coach certification programs on the Internet. I have found many of them use questionable marketing techniques and make false promises to lure gullible consumers into purchasing their expensive and grossly inadequate training programs. That being said, there are many excellent trained and experienced life coaches with informative websites to can help you make your decision. You should be aware that some of the best life coaches have no formal training.

I suggest using your intuition to identify a mentor who possesses the skills necessary to guide you in your personal journey. Most importantly, you will also want to assess your potential mentor’s temperament and decide whether this person is a good match your own unique personality. It is my opinion that the goal of any professional life coach or mentor should be to equip their client to make good decisions. God endowed humans with a thinking ability. We can use this gift to (successfully) direct the course of our lives without permanently relying on the instruction of another being.

The Unbreakable Laws of the Universe

To live a harmonious life, you must not only abide by the laws of your country, but also by the natural Laws of the Universe. If we transgress, there will be consequences. Like any country, the universe is also governed by certain laws. We refer to these as Universal Laws or Laws of Nature, ‘whose content is set by nature and is therefore universal’ (Wikipedia).

The Law of Gravity is an example of a Universal Law. So is the Law of Conservation of Energy, that is, energy cannot be created or destroyed, only transformed from one form to another. However, unlike human laws, which can vary from country to country, Universal Laws are consistent and unchanging. You interact with these laws with every breath you take. They govern your existence.

Nothing about your life has been casual or accidental!

The Universal Laws seem to be mysterious. They have hidden truths. When you identify these hidden truths and utilise them correctly, miracles or amazing results occur in your life. It may manifest as suddenly having money when you need it the most, reversing a life-threatening disease, or succeeding in a particular endeavour. These ‘miracles’, no matter how incredible they might be, are not unbelievable outcomes. They are natural outcomes based on the correct application of specific laws of nature.

Unfortunately, some of the Universal Laws are not as clear-cut as they might seem. There are unnoticed subtleties to the Universal Laws which, when understood and applied, can make all the difference between happiness and misery, prosperity and poverty, peace and conflict, ease and struggle.

It’s easy to think that some people are born to affluence and all good things happen to them. The truth is, these people aren’t simply lucky; good things don’t just ‘happen’ to them. They’re just applying the Laws of the Universe more effectively, whether they’re aware of it or not. The laws are flawless; they work perfectly every time, all the time. If you seem to be doing all the right things, but your results are poor, consider the Laws of the Universe and how you are applying them. This book will help you.

How many laws are there? Many.

These laws govern every aspect of our existence. The supreme Law of the Universe is the Law of Cause and Effect, also referred to as karma or the parable of ‘reaping what you sow’. For every effect there is a cause; for every action there is a reaction. Positive action equates to a positive result. The Law of Cause and Effect transcends time, space or form.

It operates whether you are aware of it or not.

Every human thought, word or deed is a cause that sets off a wave of energy throughout the universe, resulting in desirable or undesirable effects. If there are undesirable effects, it simply means that at some time in the past, there was a thought, word or deed that caused a wave of undesirable energy. As normal, fully-functioning people we are quite literally responsible for everything in our lives. The following excerpt illustrates this concept.

This is the suggestion a man gave to his subconscious mind over a period of about two years: “I would give my right arm to see my daughter cured.” It appeared that his daughter had a crippling form of arthritis together with a so-called incurable form of skin disease. Medical treatment had failed to alleviate the condition, and the father had an intense longing for his daughter’s healing, and expressed his desire in the words just quoted.

One day the family was out for a drive. Their car was involved in a head-on collision. The father’s right arm was torn off at the shoulder. When he came home from the hospital, he discovered that his daughter’s arthritis and skin condition had vanished.

(Murphy, 2001)

Everyone is subject to these same natural Laws of the Universe, regardless of race, colour, creed or gender. The laws exert their influence without our consent or awareness. When we choose the behaviour, we choose the consequences. Interestingly, the people who are frustrated in life consistently try to defy the natural laws. And, not surprisingly, successful people live in harmony with the natural Laws of the Universe.

Deepak Chopra, an authority in mind-body medicine, identified these issues in his bestselling book, The Seven Spiritual Laws of Success, saying ‘no debt in the universe ever goes unpaid. There is a perfect accounting system in this universe, and everything is a constant “to and fro” exchange of energy’.

All of life is connected; what we do to others, we do to ourselves. According to the principle of karma, any negative or positive thought or action remains that way, until it expends (uses up) its energy by acting upon the originator. The energy you create through your thoughts, words and deeds – either negative or positive – will rebound and act on YOU. But, as it is the nature of energy to expand when it is put out into the world, you will at some point experience much more than you caused others to experience.

If you cause others to experience prosperity and wellbeing, it will come back to you and you will experience it as well, often multiplied. In like manner, if you hurt someone, the energy will eventually return and cause you even greater hurt, unless of course you make amends in some way.

Eighteenth-century German poet and philosopher, Wolfgang Von Goethe wrote:

Nature understands no jesting; she is always true, always serious, always severe; she is always right, and the errors and faults are always those of man. The man incapable of appreciating her, she despises and only to the apt, the pure, and the true, does she resign herself and reveal her secrets.

The Law of Cause and Effect is the IRON LAW of the universe. It is unyielding. If you defy this law, there will be consequences – no ‘ifs, ands, or buts’ about it. It’s fascinating (and often tragic) to observe how many of us try to defy this law, especially when we pursue quick and easy gains. Often we strive for what we want by doing the exact opposite of what is in our best interest.

This beautiful fable illustrates the mystifying and sometimes illusive nature of the Law of Cause and Effect.

The Secret to Creating Affluence

A young man went to the forest and said to his spiritual master, ‘I want to have unlimited wealth, to help and heal the world. What is the secret to wealth?’

The spiritual master said, ‘There are two Goddesses that reside in the heart of every human being: the Goddess of WEALTH and the Goddess of KNOWLEDGE’.

‘Although you love both, you must pursue one of them to the exclusion of the other. Pursue her, love her, and give her your attention. Understand that only the Goddess of Wealth can give you wealth, and you may pursue only one Goddess, not both’.

‘But, here is the secret: If you pursue the Goddess of Wealth, she will be pleased with you because she loves to be chased. The more you pursue her the more she will elude you. However, if you pursue the Goddess of KNOWLEDGE, the Goddess of WEALTH will become extremely jealous and pay more att ention to you. In fact, the more you seek the Goddess of Knowledge, the more the Goddess of Wealth will seek you. She will never leave you. She will constantly shower you with material blessings just to win your attention, and the wealth you desire will be yours forever’.

Adapted from (Chopra, 1993)

The human tendency is to pursue the Goddess of Wealth, which seems like the logical choice. However, wealth is simply an effect, and like any effect it has a cause. In the fable, pursuing one goddess gets you the best of both worlds; wealth comes from the acquisition and proper application of knowledge.

So let’s be clear: your goals and dreams will manifest when you and the Laws of the Universe are in harmony!

It’s a scientific fact that the universe operates in absolute harmony with IRREVOCABLE natural laws and principles that have NEVER varied throughout all time. These laws prevail regardless of whether we heed them or not. Those individuals who live in harmony with the Laws of the Universe will emerge victorious. Bestselling author, Bob Proctor, summed it up perfectly when he said,

You are living and working in a dynamic global marketplace that leaves little room for error. In future, only those individuals whose beliefs are sound, in harmony with the laws of the universe, and have been integrated with their behavior, will emerge as real winners.

(Proctor 2011)

This much we know with certainty: you have unlimited potential and you can tap into and harness this potential by combining:

1. a deeper understanding of yourself (your power of attraction) with

2. specific efforts towards a desired outcome (your power of action).

In other words, you’ll experience the rewards (the Law of Receiving) when you truly understand that you have immense, untapped ability, and you combine that understanding with deliberate application of the Law of Attraction and the Law of Action.

These are the three key laws of manifestation that interact to create abundance in your life. Use these laws in cohesion to expedite your success and achieve better results.

Learning about the Universal Laws of Success is essential, but most people struggle with how to do this. The book titled, “The Inexplicable Laws of Success” has motivated many people in their pursuit of success. Find the book here: http://bitly.com/1hk9htE

Think Not That I Am Come To Destroy The Law, or The Prophets, I Am Not Come To Destroy But To Fulfil

Above are the words of Yashua Messiah (the Lord Jesus Christ) from Matthew 5:17 in the King James Version of The Holy Scriptures, and just lately I have been going head to head with a satanic Judaiser who repeatedly used this verse from Matthew’s Gospel and the one that follows it i.e. Matthew 5:18 to try and prove that The Law and The Commandments are still binding upon Born of God sons and daughters of God.

Matthew 5:17-18 (KJV) Think not that I am come to destroy The Law, or The Prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. 18 For verily I say unto you, Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from The Law, till all be fulfilled.

To be honest, I have always found these Holy Scriptures to be a slight thorn in my flesh. The reason for this is that they can too easily be abused and misused and thereby used in a very negative sense in order to support the erroneous demonic ideas of Graceless blasphemers who want to put sons and daughters of God back under The Law of Moses – The Commandments.

We must understand that these outward show commandment keepers (those of the 21st century Pharisee concision) truly believe there is salvation in Moses. They will deny it, of course, until they’re blue in the face, but that changes nothing. That is what they believe and they only ever pay lip service to His Grace. They believe salvation is in obedience to The Law – The Commandments and not through living under Yashua Messiah’s (the Lord Jesus Christ’s) Glorious Saving Grace.

So, let’s analyse what Yashua Messiah was saying here in these verses – the opening statement first:

“Think not that I am come to destroy The Law, or The Prophets.”

And from the Greek MSS transliteral:

Matthew 5:17 (Greek Transliteral) No ye-should-be-inferring that I-came to-down-loose the law or the before-averers (prophets) not I-came to-down-loose but to-fill.

I will be returning to one crucial word here later.

And from Young’s Literal Translation:

Matthew 5:17 (YLT) Do not suppose that I came to thrown down the law and the prophets—I did not come to throw down, but to fulfil.

I have used the YLT version here because I believe the words ‘throw down’ are more accurate and descriptive than the KJV word ‘destroy’, and because Yashua Messiah is NOT a destroyer. Satan The Devil is The Destroyer, not Yashua Messiah. We therefore learn from this that Yashua Messiah did not come to throw down The Law and The Prophets nor do away with them or what they represented, and why would He? He was under The Law Himself and were The Prophets not His messengers in Old Covenant (Testament) times and did they not uphold The Law? Didn’t Yashua Messiah Himself instruct Moses about The Law and tell him what to write down over a period of forty days and forty nights? Doesn’t Paul also make it all clear?

Gal 3:24-26 (KJV) Wherefore The Law was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, that we might be justified by Faith (righteousness). 25 But after that Faith is come, we are no longer under a schoolmaster (The Law). 26 For ye are all the children (sons) of God by Faith in Christ Jesus. (Brackets and emphasis mine)

The Law WAS our school master in order to bring us to Yashua Messiah. That is all The Law is for, IF you are a follower of Yashua Messiah – The Way and have Faith in Him for your salvation. If you do not have Faith solely in Him for your salvation then you must have your faith in yourself and in something else i.e. YOUR vain attempts at keeping The Law and The Commandments.

Paul also said:

Romans 7:12 (KJV) Wherefore The Law is Holy, and The Commandment Holy, and just, and good.

So what is Paul saying? He’s saying The Law and The Commandments are perfect and Holy – no fault can be found in them. However there is one BIG PROBLEM – man CANNOT OBEY THEM and has never obeyed them. Man in the weak fleshy condition is incapable of keeping The Law or The Commandments. So why do Graceless Judaisers think the opposite is the case? Why and how do they think that man can achieve the impossible? Where in the Holy Scriptures does it state that man will one day (sometime never LOL) obtain the ability to OBEY The Law and The Commandments? It ain’t there folks!! Nowhere in The Holy Scriptures does it say that man will one day OBEY The Law or The Commandments. Yes he will follow Yashua Messiah willingly and voluntarily, but not obediently. Furthermore, this is a question I have put to these wretched Judaising people a hundred and one times before and never once received an answer. How can they give an answer, there isn’t an answer other than simple Faith in Yashua Messiah, to which they can never humble themselves.

OK, back to the Greek Transliteral Version and that crucial word and I will copy again:

Matthew 5:17 (Greek Transliteral) No ye-should-be-inferring that I-came to-down-loose the law or the before-averers (prophets) not I-came to-down-loose but to-fill.

Now notice right at the end it says ‘to fill’ NOT ‘fulfil’. So what I hear you say? Ah but this is far more significant than we may at first realise. The word ‘fulfil’ as used in the KJV does not convey The Truth correctly!! Now there’s a surprise!! And how many times do we find these subtle satanic changes within the pages of the KJV? Too many times is the answer to that.

Moreover here’s an analogy: Imagine that The Law and The Commandments are a empty bucket and an empty bucket that always needs filling in order for the demands of The Law and The Commandments to be met.

Now in Old Covenant times under The Law and The Commandments all they could do was offer and sacrifice animals in order to meet the demands of The Law and The Commandments so they would slaughter animal after animal in their attempts to fill The Law Bucket, but never accomplishing their aims, because the sacrifices were not substantial enough and always temporary so turned to ash, blew away on the wind, and the bucket never filled.

However, after John the Baptist ALL THINGS CHANGED which Yashua Messiah confirms for us here:

Matthew 11:13 (KJV) For all The Prophets and The Law prophesied until John.

Luke 16:16 (KJV) The Law and The Prophets were until John: since that time The Kingdom of God is preached, and every man presseth into it.

So what does this mean? It means quite simply that Yashua Messiah’s death (total sacrifice) and resurrection FILLED THE LAW AND COMMANDMENT BUCKET!! Yashua Messiah is the water (The Living Water) that easily fills the bucket. This is why the word ‘fulfilled’ is a very weak or even a false and ever so slightly deceptive translation, because The Greek MSS says “to fill” and the KJV says “fulfil”. If we put it another way, can something that needs filling, be fulfilled or completed? No, because ‘to fill’ has a different meaning from ‘fulfil’ and the translators knew it and they deliberately mistranslated it.

As a final point I will quote Strong’s Concordance for the word ‘fulfil’ and reveal more Truth:

G4137 – fulfil – pleroo – play-ro’-o – From G4134; to make replete, that is, (literally) to cram (a net), level up (a hollow), or (figuratively) to furnish (or imbue, diffuse, influence), satisfy, execute (an office), finish (a period or task), verify (or coincide with a prediction), etc.: – accomplish, X after, (be) complete, end, expire, fill (up), fulfil, (be, make) full (come), fully preach, perfect, supply.

If we now copy Strong’s definitions for ‘fulfilled’ from Matthew 5:18 what do you think we will find? Answer: a different word entirely, would you believe it? Much mirth for the author!!

G1096 – fulfilled – ginomai – ghin’-om-ahee – A prolonged and middle form of a primary verb; to cause to be (“gen” -erate), that is, (reflexively) to become (come into being), used with great latitude (literally, figuratively, intensively, etc.): – arise be assembled, be (come, -fall, -have self), be brought (to pass), (be) come (to pass), continue, be divided, be done, draw, be ended, fall, be finished, follow, be found, be fulfilled, + God forbid, grow, happen, have, be kept, be made, be married, be ordained to be, partake, pass, be performed, be published, require, seem, be showed, X soon as it was, sound, be taken, be turned, use, wax, will, would, be wrought.

We can now see their plot unravelling because ‘fulfil’ or ‘fulfilled’ are the correct words for the Greek word ‘ginomai’ and yet they translated the word ‘pleroo’ as ‘fulfil’ when it clearly wasn’t. We need to understand, too, that these 17th century translators of the KJV were highly educated people and very literate in more than one language so this was not an innocent mistake.

Furthermore, see how the above first definition of the Greek word ‘pleroo’ fits nicely with my Law and Commandment Bucket? The first definition for ‘pleroo’ is ‘replete’ which means to be ‘filled to satisfaction’ – or filled right to the brim and so it is with The Law and Commandment Bucket in terms of Yashua Messiah’s sacrifice and His resurrection. His sacrifice filled the Law and Commandment Bucket right to the brim and flowing over.

Yashua Messiah came after John had completed the era of The Law and The Prophets, so after John that was it – NO MORE LAW and COMMANDMENTS and NO MORE PROPHETS for those who put their Faith in Yashua Messiah for EVERYTHING! There it is again folks: the simplicity that is in Christ – 2 Cor 11:3
